Republicans Respond to Obama's Brain Study Initiative
"Brains are full of communists."
---Sen. Ted Cruz
"A woman told me just yesterday that the brain vaccine causes mental retardation."
"Studying brains will only lead us down the path to same-brain marriage."
We know where the brains are. They are around the area of the cranium and south, east, west and north somewhat."
"Brains are people, my friends!"
"If it's a legitimate tea party brain, the body has a way to shut that whole thing down."
"When they ask me who's the president of Ubrainy Brainy Brainy Brainy Stan Stan is, I'm gonna say,'I don't know. Do you know?'"
"I pledge to you that we will have a colony on my brain within eight years."

Many people would choose to have a contractual agreement instead of traditional marriage if they could start over again.
Have the fancy wedding by the preacher, the big reception, and the honeymoon, but forget about the marriage license. Just be sure not to live in a common law marriage state.

Famously incompetent war pundit Bill Kristol says that the Republican Party's new attempt to be more reasonable, or as Kristol calls it, "fashionable," is dumb and stuff because young people don't know anything anyway.
“This kind of pathetic attempt to say,‘Oh, my God! Young people especially are liberal so let’s just rush to cater to them,’ as if they’re going to respect you if you just embrace the views of some 26-year-old who doesn’t know anything honestly.”
(He picked Sarah Palin!)

Black Opinions in the Age of Obama: Results of a National Zogby Poll
So, what did the poll, which I have chosen to entitle Black Opinions in the Age of Obama reveal? African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.
Consistent with the data that shows that African Americans believe that President Obama's election has helped them, a majority of those polled - 62 percent - are optimistic about employment in the next four years.
Thirty percent (30%) of the respondents say they are doing better off financially than they were four years ago, about half say they are at least doing the same, and twenty-five percent (25%) say that "African Americans in general" are doing better while forty-four percent (44%) say they are doing about the same and twenty-one percent (21%) say they are worse off.
On race relations, tied to this feeling that the Obama presidency has been positive for African Americans fifty-three percent (53%) say that white-African American relations will improve, while only twenty-three (23%) are pessimistic.
When asked why they believed the Black unemployment rate was double that of whites. Responses include:
* Failure of the education system for minorities/African Americans (50%)
* Lack of corporate commitment to hiring minorities/African Americans (48%)
* Lack of good government policies (25%)

It's an extremely complicated issue. What would you suggest?
The Republicans want to cut medicaid and medicare; but rightwingers like Carol continue to say "Obama must do something about the mentally ill"; ok, what? Lock up everyone who acts a little odd? Who will pay for this wholesale warehousing of people?
We already do this through the criminal justice system; we have more people in prison than any other country.
Psychiatrists prescribe drugs; these drugs often make the person worse; no one knows what to do.

However, laws like the one recently passed in New York may face problems in the Supreme Court because they so extensively restrict the right to bear arms as to effectively cancel the Second Amendment, by making almost all firearms illegal.

Tenzing proffered this awhile back, I think it's a great idea. Let the insurance industry control the guns. If Nancy Lanza knew she'd have to insure her weapons, with that kid in the house, her premiums would be through the roof; if she realized that anyone murdered by her guns would cost her entire estate and the insurance companies liability; perhaps 26 people would be alive.

Not to mention that the typical .22 caliber lever action rifle holds 15 or so rounds in the magazine.

More broadly, eliminate all federal programs that take federal tax dollars and return the money to state and local governments, minus an exorbitant commission for federal overhead.
Let the state and local governments collect those taxes directly, if they so choose.

Hah, no anger here old pal__simply pointing out that mental health background checks for gun ownership creates far more problems than it could possibly solve not to mention that the cost would be enormous.
On the one hand the right seeks legislation that prohibits physicians from inquiring about weapons in their patient's home and on the other want's to fund doctors for recording lists of their patients who may present a danger to society.
#883255 Apr 3, 2013
the opinion forwarded by the majority was based on the premise that are there are dangerous and unusual weapons so they could say that handguns are not.
so the twisted logic of the conservatives on the Court, while upsetting precedent, will now come back to bite them in the ass when the first case concerning 'dangerous and unusual' makes it's way to the Court. should be interesting to see them try to backpedal without opening up new cases concerning handguns.

The taxpayers are spending huge sums on programs for the homeless, most of whom are mentally ill.
Drugs are also a factor in obesity.
