The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals narrowly ruled on Thursday that Michigan’s ban on affirmative action, passed by a ballot initiative in 2006, is unconstitutional.
The court ruled 8 to 7 in Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action v. University of Michigan that banning affirmative action was a violation of the 14h Amendment’s guarantee to equal protection

This one is going to be fun to watch. It narrowly ruled? But.. A States Rights issue is in the background, if they open it up, that can of worms can spread all over.

A federal judge ruled Monday night that the Hobby Lobby craft store chain must offer its 13,000 employees contraceptive coverage without a co-pay, as mandated by Obamacare
Hobby Lobby sued to deny such coverage in September, citing conservative evangelical owner David Green’s personal religious objections to certain types of birth control that fall under Obamacare’s contraception mandate. In particular, the company sought to deny its employees coverage for the morning after pill, commonly known as Plan B.
But on Monday night, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied the request in a 28-page ruling, pointing out that religious institutions have already been given exemptions from covering contraception, and that Hobby Lobby does not qualify since it is a private business:

Unfortunately, there still Boehner & the House.
If it weren't for that, we would be much further recovered than we are now.
We have fantastic results in 2009 & 2010 in fighting this recession.
He had growth up to 4%. We went from Bush's 750,000 a month job losses to job gains.
We had significant health care reform
We had significant wall street reform to help prevent wall street from finishing the job they started.
Then we got Republicans in the House deciding abortion & gay marriage & repealing the ACA (never possible) was more important than jobs & the Republicans in the Senate who walked in the door every morning & screamed filibuster.
At that point, our recovery slowed. Ask Mitch McConnell about it.
We do know this, the Republican plan created this recession and the Republicans have not changed their plans.
Maybe one day, the Republicans will value their country as much as their pledge to a lobbyist. I'm not holding my breath on that.

Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the sex scandal that forced Petraeus to abruptly resign was not a factor in the hearing, which was confined to the terror attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
"Ten seconds into it, that was off to the side," King said, referring to the scandal.
The congressman said that what Petraeus told the panel "will all be classified other than it was clear it did not arise from a demonstration and it was a terror attack."
King said that Petraeus maintained that he said early on that the ambush was a result of terrorism, but King added that he remembered Petraeus and the Obama administration downplaying the role of an al Qaeda affiliate in the attack in the days after Stevens was killed. The administration initially said the attack grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against a video that lampooned the Prophet Mohammed.
"That is not my recollection" of what Petraeus initially said, King said today.
The congressman suggested that pressing Petraeus was awkward at times.
"It's a lot easier when you dislike the guy," King said.
Petraeus resigned last week after disclosing an extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell.

Hostess Brands will ask a bankruptcy judge on Monday for approval to shut down the company and pay $1.75 million in executive bonuses.
Unions representing workers at the maker of Twinkies, Wonder Bread and Drake’s snacks are arguing against the bonuses.[...]
Under the plan, bonuses ranging from $7,400 to $130,500 will be paid to 19 executives. The company argues the bonuses are below market rates for such payments.
The unions seem to be more concerned about executive bonuses than about the jobs of their members.

The bonuses amount to less than $100 per Hostess employee. How long would that keep the company afloat?

You're blowing hot air again.....
Do you find yourself being a more religious person these days?
A religious person? Religion is supposedly a force for positive good. Where can you look in the world and see that religion has been a force for positive good? Where can you look at humanity and say, "Humanity has been uplifted by a connection to a godly power"?
Meaning organized religion?
Corporations are religions. It depen is what you talk about with a religion.... Anything is a religion.
At one point, you took on Christianity in a very serious way, and then Judaism. Where are you now with all that?
Religion is something that is mostly outward appearance. Faith is a different thing. How many religions are there in the world? Quite a few, actually.
What is your faith these days?
Faith doesn't have a name. It doesn't have a category. It's oblique. So it's unspeakable. We degrade faith by talking about religion.
What do you take faith in?
Nature. Just elemental nature. I'm still tramping my way through the forest, really, on daily excursions. Nature doesn't change. And if there is any war going on on a big level today, it's against nature.

Religion served a useful purpose in our societal evolution. Without it would people have organized into groups above the tribal level? Anyhow, its usefulness has long been spent to the point where it has caused far more harm than good. Time to move on.

Rice went on TV Sunday the 16th, and spoke directly from CIA talking points. While sending Rice to "all" the Sunday shows was a huge mistake on someones part, she didn't lie.

King is one of the lyingest, loudmouthed, partisan priks in congress!

The Daily Beast isn't exactly nonbiased. But you, like most liberals, will choose to believe them over all other sources at all costs.
A sound argument is a sound argument regardless of its source. To you a good argument is one that agrees with your preconceptions and "facts" are whatever you think they SHOULD be. That's why dilettantes like O'Reilly and Beck sound smart to you.
