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 ...

My mother use to tell me,"talking to you is like talking to a wall." With these entitlement mentality folks, Inow realize what she was talking about. All they know is Muslim this, Muslim that when for centuries they've been trying to force their religion on Americas populace. Under the guise of what religion the"forefathers "were & what religion this country was"founded "on. I state this all the time. It's makes me laugh at all so called well off people, at least that's what they say, but they're the ones doing all the crying on this thread. Whether Obama wears boxers or briefs, his daughters vacation spots, birth certificate, blah blah blah! These people whine more than a vineyard!

Yes, Mitch McConnell is destroying the Senate

I recommend a solid New York Times editorial today about the unprecedented, outrageous obstruction by Republican senators against President Obama’s nominees, especially his executive branch nominees.

It’s critically important to give this story as much attention as it deserves — which is quite a lot. Just the names alone: Hagel, Brennan, McCarthy, Perez, Cordray ... and that’s only the ones from this term whom the Times mentions. Remember, however, that every single nomination is being subjected to a 60-vote requirement. That’s a filibuster, and it means that every single nominee is being filibustered. The only question is how many Republicans will support the filibuster, not whether there is one. And as the Times points out, there are additional forms of obstruction, too, whether it’s Sen. Rand Paul’s day-long speech, or asking the nominees to answering never-ending extraneous questions.

I’ve been harsh to Obama and Senate Democrats for not fighting back hard enough, but the main problem here is the Republicans in general, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell specifically.

Remember, a lot of this is simply grandstanding. Oh, yes, some of it is intended to really change policy — the nullification involved in the Cordray filibuster, for example — but most of it is just showing the flag. Never mind that it harms the nation by making it harder for government departments and agencies to function well. Or, for some Senate Republicans, maybe a poorly functioning government is a bonus.

The worst part is that it will ultimately make it impossible for the Senate to use the nomination process for legitimate attempts to influence policy, either through raising issues (as Rand Paul did) or bargaining over a state interest (as Sen. Roy Blunt is doing on the McCarthy nomination). There’s just no way to know which of these obstructions are real and which are simply excuses for obstruction-for-the-sake-of-ob struction, and so the majority has to shut them all down by cloture whenever possible. In other words, endless filibusters and other obstruction aren’t just bad for the government, but they’re bad for the Senate.

The bottom line: Democrats would be fully justified in moving to majority-imposed rules reform on executive-branch nominations. The best solution would be simple majority cloture — preserving the right of individual senators to slow things down a bit, but making it easy for the majority to act when it wants. But one way or another, it has to end.

The National Association of Evangelicals recently polled its leadership as to whether they felt the United States was a Christian nation.

The answer was overwhelming.

68 percent said “no.”

“Much of the world refers to America as a Christian nation,” noted Leith Anderson, the association’s president,“but most of our Christian leaders don’t think so.”

“The Bible only uses the word ‘Christian’ to describe people and not countries,” added Anderson.“Even those who say America is a Christian nation admit that there are lots of non-Christians and even anti-Christian beliefs and behaviors.”

Really?? You're spouting dumb lies.

Where in the Constitution does it say th euSA is a Christian nation??

It doesn't.

Here's what it says;

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

Just so stupid people like you understand clearly, that means that all religions are the same in the USA. All are free to worship as they please, no one religion or belief is allowed to be assumed the 'nations religion'.

Our Constitution considers Islam to be as valid a religion as Christianity.

Sorry, you lose.

Wingnuts is a term used to describe Repugnants like you.

Yes, you'll stupidly say you're not a Repugnant, but the duck rule applies here.

And you sure walk, talk, and act like a duck.

Except when you do your 'Chicken Little' impression.

What would a doctor do even if that were the case? Write a prescription banning the gun?

Doctors report abuse of any kind to the proper authorities who take over these cases.

They'd have to ask about knives and bats in the home too - or pillows and bare hands leading to death by suffocation and strangulation.

See where this is going? A gun doesn't kill anyone anymore than a pillow.

Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.

Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom.

we are a country of many religions. from the start up until now. for one religion to claim dominion is a deliberate attempt to diminish the constitutionally guaranteed rights provided in the religion clauses of the First Amendment. and usually by those who insist that in every other aspect the Constitution should be read as if every word should only be interpreted as written.

i respect your opinion on the subject, much as i respect any true believer of any religion, but as you gracefully point out, it is just an opinion.

Your opinion proves you to be a fool and a bigot.

The Constitution says you're a liar.

Most of the Founding Fathers were Diests.

Not at all the same as Christians, so you're dead wrong.

Your opinions are meaningless and dumb.

The laws state otherwise.
