Good morning clueless one:
" Any notion that Tuesday's election represented a liberal juggernaut must overcome a detail from the voting booths of California: The same voters who turned out strongest for Barack Obama also drove a stake through the heart of same-sex marriage.
Seven in 10 African Americans who went to the polls voted yes on Proposition 8"

We could go over each of your propaganda assertions you are repeating, Kool-Aid drinker, but since you are dishonest, I won't.
Tenzing along with every liberal on here will never accept that black and Hispanic democrats predominantly voted yes on Proposition 8 as in California.

They will also never accept many democrats also oppose abortion.

And they will never accept most wars in the past century were started and accelerated under Democratic leadership.

It's just more convenient to blame republicans for their disillusionment.

Where is Chinese medicine covered in O'bamacare. Where are vitamins covered in O'bamacare--what about alternative treatments I would like to choose if I get sick? where are they covered? I am going to have to pay out of pocket for every thing I choose just like I do now. I do not use western medicine--and that is what O'bama covers. Medication for the masses. Not about health, not about care. This is not right wing. This is about people who care about their own health, not some government telling them.

Dick Durbin (D Walgreens) announces that the Great Lakes are evaporating at an alarming rate. However they are exactly the same as last year. And now as of today the Chicago area has flooded again. The last flood was less than two months ago. I don't know how Dick is keeping all that rain out of Lake Michigan.

We still have an economy in the tank, countries around the world are thumbing their noses at Lord Obama (they discovered he's a poser), Benghazi, IRS, NSA wiretapping-- now what is the Annointed One charging after?
GLOBAL WARMING! Yep, heard this morning he wants to start taxing the hell out of anything that emits carbon dioxide.
Two weeks ago we in Idaho were told that our electric rates are going up 12% because, among other things, the utilities bought expensive windmills that were subsidized by the federal gubbermint. Now that the feds are unable to continue subsidizing them, we're stuck with these windmills, which will never make electricity as economically as carbon fuels.
Oh yeah, we'll just absorb another Socialist/Democrat brain fart. Just like Obamacare, which we get to start paying for BIG TIME next year.
I wish there was a way to isolate the Socialist/Democrats so that THEY pay for their idiotic ideas. If they want socialized medicine, FINE! If they want to pay triple the amount for their electricity because of some myth about global warming, FINE! Just let the rest of us who haven't taken leave of our brains opt out.
It's astonishing and unbelievable at the same time.

Don't know which is the more bizarre - how astonishing and unbelievable it is or liberals panting and wagging their tails in anticipated excitement of getting a treat for their undying loyalty.

uh-hu

During the Obama administration, the Justice Department initially defended DOMA in court despite the administration’s desire to repeal it. But the Justice Department changed course in early 2011, finding that the law was unconstitutional and declining to defend it any longer. House Republicans have since spent hundreds of thousands of dollars taking over that defense.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as "Obamacare," what is now called alternative medicine may become as accessible and widely accepted as conventional care.

The controversial act specifically mentions complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative healthcare in seven different sections throughout the law. This is thanks in part to the efforts of the Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium, a coalition of major organizations started at the request of legislators in Washington devoted to the promotion of CAM and integrative healthcare in the U.S.

Have you ever bought your own insurance plan? Didn't the application ask questions about those sorts of activities as well as whether you smoked and how much you drank?
Every person is going to be nailed with pre-existing conditions. You know that don't you? and you will be rated as such. I suppose they will be asking how many sodas you drank too...if you eat bacon once a month, that will be a disease--and G-d forbid if you ever fell down in your life. If your wife says you are a nut then that will also be included-which I am sure she does.

The Defense of Marriage Act, the law barring the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages legalized by the states, is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday by a 5-4 vote.

"The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion.“By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment.”

Nothing in the decision changes anything with respect to restricting the voting rights of minorities.
It changes the process in that before, subject jurisdictions had to prove legality before changing laws, now they'll have to go through injunctions just like all the other states.
