Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Two Jehovahs Witnesses knocked on my door this morning; I told them to go away. Why do they think they have the right to impose themselves on others?

Fix their wagon, maybe they're casing the neighborhood for future robberies, see if someone comes to the door.
I have these two little ole black ladies come by about every other week. They knock and ting the bell even though there is no solicitors sticker on the door. I just answer the door, smile, and listen to their little speech. They invite me to their church and hand me a paper. I say goodbye. Takes about five minutes and they leave happy that someone listened to them. Five minutes to a couple people happy is worth it.

Oh? Where Would Evangelicals Go?

Mike Huckabee warns that if the GOP caves on same-sex marriage, Evangelicals will walk. I don’t believe it. This is an empty threat. Huckabee and I are on the same side of the SSM question, so for “Evangelicals” you might as well substitute “social conservatives.” I think very few of us will abandon the Republican Party over this issue. Why would we, given the alternative would be a Democratic Party that’s more hostile to our values and concerns?

If he’s talking about Evangelicals and other social conservatives walking away from political engagement within the GOP, and on behalf of GOP candidates, he may have a point. If they decide that the party has surrendered on the issues that are most important to them, that can’t help but reduce enthusiasm and engagement. It’s not quite the same thing, but in the wake of the Iraq War and the economic crash, and the subsequent inability of the Republican Party to do anything but double down on its ideology, I quit identifying as a Republican, changed my registration to Independent, and now consider myself simply a conservative. I am more likely to vote Republican than Democrat, given my convictions, but I’m not nearly the automatic Republican vote that I used to be, while also not becoming enthusiastic in the least about Democrats.

Point is, the GOP alienated me from politics in general. The only reason I retain a likelihood to vote Republican for national office is over social issues, especially same-sex marriage and abortion and, relatedly, religious liberty. If the GOP gives these up, there will be no strong reason at all for me — or the group Thomas Kidd calls “paleo-Evangelicals”— to privilege voting Republican over Democratic.

But that’s me. Most Evangelicals, and I would guess most social conservatives, hold Republican views on foreign policy, national security, and economics; Huckabee certainly does. That being the case, why should they walk away from the GOP in a snit over SSM? It doesn’t make sense. That’s why this is an empty threat from Huckabee.

[Note: Please keep your comments confined to the political dynamics of this issue. I don't want to hear the tiresome old "bigot, bigot, bigot, bigot, bigot" claptrap, or generalized complaining about SSM, and won't publish those comments.-- RD]

funny how that works out. If they were 2 men dressed as girls collecting money for free abortions for underage girls you would have welcomed them into your home and shared you bottle of mad dog with them.

Don't you think Nancy did a great job of defending her second amendment rights--cold, dead hands and all that.

She certainly did. She did the best she could to be both mom and dad to the boy but in a liberal hellhole like Connecticut how could she possibly hope to do it? A child, particularly a child having paranoid homicidal delusions, needs two parents at home to monitor him carefully and see that he has all the guns and ammunition he needs should the rage ever build up to the point where he might feel the need to express it.

When I was a girl in Illinois my mother and father worked hard to make sure that one of them would always be around, or, at least Uncle Bill when all else failed. In this way I was able to grow to young womanhood secure in the knowledge that I was loved and cared for properly.

"Sonia Sotomayor Question On Gay Marriage Leaves Lawyer Stumped"

"Outside of the marriage context, can you think of any other rational basis, reason, for a state using sexual orientation as a factor in denying homosexuals benefits? Or imposing burdens on them? Is there any other decision-making that the government could make -- denying them a job, not granting them benefits of some sort, any other decision?"

(Here's the funny part!)
----------

"Charles Cooper, the attorney arguing against gay marriage for the state of California, struggled to find a response.

“Your Honor, I cannot,” Cooper said.“I, I do not have, uh, uh, any, uh, anything to offer you in that regard.”

“If they’re a class that makes any other discrimination improper, irrational, then why aren’t we treating them as a class for this one benefit?” Sotomayor then asked.

Cooper answered that marriage needed to be protected because of “responsible procreation” is a “vital” interest to the state and society and because “same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples are simply not similarly situated.”

----------

Modern technology has proven Cooper's answer to be a lie. Even conservatives use artificial insemination!!
