Barack Obama, our next President

More proof that the GOP hates children:
As Tennessee prepares to consider two bills to reduce welfare assistance for needy families whose children are not doing well in school, a Change.org petition has popped up to fight the measure. The petition was started by Clergy for Justice, a Tennesse-based organization of clergy that has previously advocated for causes including immigration reform, health care, and anti-bullying laws. Within 36 hours, their petition garnered over 2,000 supporters from at least 145 cities and towns in Tennessee.
HB 0261 and SB 0132 would make family benefits from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program conditional on a child’s educational performance. While Tennessee already ties welfare assistance to students’ attendance, this new proposal would essentially make poor children responsible for keeping their families afloat.
In an email to ThinkProgress, Clergy For Justice co-organizer Kathy Chambers highlighted one petition comment by Melissa Jennings, a former TANF recipient who pointed out that the bill penalizes children who are already being left behind by schools:

The Welfare Reform Act signed by President Clinton was to benefit only those who were working and earning some kind of income.

Many people are now being rewarded for not working.

Why would anyone want to work? Shouldn't there be some kind of incentive built into receiving welfare benefits?

That is never going to happen anytime soon because more and more jobs are disappearing. Thanks to Obamacare.

Are you purposefully not paying attention?

Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the patient, the woman seeking an abortion, and her abortion doctor.

Rep. Jose Oliva asked the Planned Parenthood official: "I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?”

"That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that," Snow said.

CNN - The U.S. Labor Department's monthly report showed that the economy added only 88,000 jobs in March, the lowest monthly gain since last June and far below expectations.

Nearly 500,000 people dropped out of the labor market.

That's what I was wondering. Just because Disney is apparently safe from the ObamaCare "disaster in the making" so far, other massive layoffs aren't that significant enough, I suppose.

Get what? That Louis Farrakhan is behind white supremacy? LOL!
First of all Louis Farrakhan represents himself and the Nation of Islam; he doesn't represent black people, I know you white supremacists think all blacks look alike, think alike, vote alike.
They don't; I don't know anyone who would even give Louis Farrakhan the time of the day for a second. Besides you.
Muslims and white supremacists hate Jews! Therefore, blacks are behind white supremacy! You're totally off your rocker.
You hate the Jews more than any other group. You may be all for defending Israel; but we all know where that stems from. I hear it all the time; the good Christians amongst each other with their extreme antiSemitic comments. You fool no one.

Well let's start off with the fact that marriage has already gone through a fundamental transformation over the ages. It started off as a business deal exchanging a piece of property, the woman, from her father to her husband in exchange for money, livestock service. It is now a civil contract between two consenting adults. If someone wants to have their marriage blessed and performed by a priest, minister, rabbi or imam then they are free to do so.
As the effect on children the American Academy of Pediatrics has weighed in on the subject stating;
“The academy’s new policy statement says same-sex marriage helps guarantee rights, benefits and long-term security for children, while acknowledging that it does not now ensure access to federal benefits. When marriage is not an option, the academy said, children should not be deprived of foster care or adoption by single parents or couples, whatever their sexual orientation….”
“The academy cited research finding that a child’s well-being is much more affected by the strength of relationships among family members and a family’s social and economic resources than by the sexual orientation of the parents.“There is an emerging consensus, based on extensive review of the scientific literature, that children growing up in households headed by gay men or lesbians are not disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents.”
Opponents of marriage equality are simply trying enforce their own beliefs on others.
"pdumb"
Sounds like you are trying to enforce your views on others.

Chicago Tribune
October 3, 1985

Members of a white racist organization led by the former head of the California Ku Klux Klan provided Louis Farrakhan, the Black Muslim minister, with information about "Jewish extremists" and recently attended a rally by Farrakhan in Los Angeles contributing $100 according to members of both groups.

The contacts between the two groups are puzzling federal officials and worrying Jewish organizations who say an alliance may be forming between radical whites and radical blacks.

Lily, here's a little gem hidden in that Chicago Tribune article.

"Metzger`s group opposes integration and advocates white separatism. As a member of the Ku Klux Klan, Metzger recruited people to join the antiblack, anti-Jewish organization. In 1980, Metzger won the Democratic primary for a California congressional seat but was repudiated by state and national Democratic leadership and lost the general election."

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1985-10-03...

Sounds like Democratic Metzger in 1985 was your Republican Akin in 2012...only worse.

Republicans "repudidated" Akin too. Didn't seem to matter then.

I'm just trying to help you, Lily. You have it wrong about who is mostly behind white supremecy.
