In America’s National Anthem, there is a phrase meant to bolster belief that because of the courage inherent in being American, the people enjoy liberty the rest of the world can only aspire to if they emigrated to the United States of America. The last line of America’s anthem to this nation’s greatness contains maybe the only words many Americans remember of Francis Scott Key’s poem where he asserts America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” and it certainly applies to America’s fighting forces, but it is a fallacy in regards to representatives in government. In fact, because of the cowardice of a large majority of politicians, over half the population is witnessing their freedoms being assaulted with extreme prejudice in Congress and Republican-controlled states, and instead of decrying the imposition of religion on women, Democrats dance around the issue out of fear of retribution from evangelical extremists.
Many Americans seem perfectly fine allowing conservative extremists to assault and deny women the right to choose their reproductive health because denying women equal rights is accepted as one of the consequences of living in a nation ruled by patriarchs. However, few Americans would sit idly by if they knew their wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers were the subject of religious extremism rivaling Islamic theocracies and harsh Sharia Law. The women of Texas are under assault by a cabal of evangelical fundamentalists, and despite the heroic action of State Senator Wendy Davis (D), evangelical governor Rick Perry called for another special legislative session for the purpose of passing and enacting legislation from America’s version of Sharia Law.
....America joins the Islamic Republic of Iran as one of the only nations on Earth to empower religion with a controlling voice in driving the direction of the nation, and like Iran, speaking out against the theocracy is a mortal sin and strictly forbidden.

I think the tax rate should be based on how ignorant a person is. The more ignorant the higher the tax. That would put you at the max rate.
Your socialists over in Europe have a 20% VAT (SALES TAX).
We should eliminate income tax and just do that, of course with a greedy leech like you paying the highest rate.

President Barack Obama placed a phone call from Air Force One to the two gay couples who had challenged Proposition 8. He told them,“We’re proud of you guys.” Paul Katami, one of the challengers, invited the president to his wedding to his partner, Jeff Zarrillo.
David Boies, a lawyer who argued against Proposition 8, said that the rulings took the country closer to realizing the Declaration of Independence’s guarantee that all men are created equal.

O JESUS, show that Thou art the God
of mercy; take pity on the suffering
souls who sigh and weep for the day
of their deliverance, and admit them
without delay into Thy joys!
O God, Creator and Redeemer of all the
faithful, give to the souls of Thy
servants departed remission of all their sins,
that through pious supplications they may
obtain the pardon which they have always desired.

Mixing your religion with politics?
IN GOD WE TRUST.
But we build a TRILLION DOLLAR A YEAR MILITARY just in case?
USA still builds nuclear bombs,
Even though there are already enough to obliterate God's creation 50 times over.
USA starts war in Iraq? Far off oil country. Millions dead! Cost TRILLIONS! Where is George? In prison?

We can't afford not to Carol. Despite what ignorant deniers like you claim, the use of fossil fuels is killing this planet. Richard Muller a professor of physics at UC Berkley whose research was ironically funded by the Koch brothers made this statement after three years of research examining climate data stated;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
You're ignoring the health costs incurred by pollution especially around coal burning power plants which add up to hundreds of billions of dollars a year and directly cause thousands of premature deaths.
Why does someone claiming to be a Christian constantly shill for those that rape and pillage God's creation solely to further line their own bulging pockets?

Pravda Editorial on Obama - America with Obama. Like Russia’s past communist leaders, Americans re-elected him for a second term without so much as a stated economic strategy for success.
“Obama was recently reelected for a second term by an illiterate society, and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. He plans his next war with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.” Pravda writer Xavier Lermer says,“Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.”
He also wrote of Obama,“He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

One of the major takeaways from the series of dramatic political events that occurred in the space of 48 hours this week is quite simply that the Republicans will do anything to win. Almost literally anything. Chicanery and complex scheming in politics isn't anything new (see also House of Cards), but the intensity and frequency -- not to mention the broad-daylight hubris of it all -- by the Republicans this week has been extraordinary to behold.
It's surely symptomatic of the Republican Party's current status on the endangered species list, but that's also what makes the party's collective fealty to far-right bigotry and oppression even more peculiar, given how the policy areas at issue this week have almost exclusively impacted women and minorities.
We were told the party was endeavoring to reach out to the demographic groups that helped doom its electoral chances last November. Clearly not, and it's disintegrated into a predictably failed outreach effort. There was never any doubt that the extremists who occupy the far-right base, as well as the fire-eaters in the conservative entertainment complex, would never allow the party to soften its posture. And so it goes.
Here now are the top six examples of Republican cheating, racism, hypocrisy and general insanity from Tuesday and Wednesday of this week:
6) They contradicted their own opinions on the judicial review role of the Supreme Court from day-to-day.
5) Big government intrusions on reproduction, marriage and election laws are fine and dandy even though the Republicans claim to hate big government.
4) They made wild claims about marriage equality, and how it could lead to bestiality.
3) The Supreme Court's decision to undermine the Voting Right Act brought into renewed focus the Republican Party's transparently obvious racism and, specifically, the conspiracy that exposes it: the rigging of elections by disenfranchising voters.
2) The Republicans intend to hold hostage the Voting Rights Act in order to preserve Jim Crow style Voter ID laws.
1) The Texas Republicans held a vote on SB5, a notoriously misogynistic anti-choice law, after the special session ended, essentially undermining all Senate rules.
That's all... for now. It's an astonishing record of treachery, especially knowing that it was all packed into a 48-hour span. Just two days in the life of the Republican Party -- an outfit that continues to out-do itself with shameful tactics, transparent bigotry and an increasingly discordant message.

You can start your research refuting that Hitler was popular at the beginning of his reign here...

Hobby Lobby - 1; ObamaKare - 0
Following on yesterday’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Hobby Lobby can continue its lawsuit against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate on religious grounds, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma ruled today that the federal government must halt all enforcement of the mandate (and related financial penalties) against the Christian-based company.
Hobby Lobby and sister company Mardel are suing the Department of Health and Human Services and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, arguing that to force the company to pay for health insurance that must offer abortion-inducing drugs, as well as sterilization and contraception, is a violation of its religious liberty.
In his order issued on Friday, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton said the “court concludes plaintiffs [Hobby Lobby] have made a sufficient showing to warrant the issuance of a temporary restraining order in the circumstances existing here."
"Accordingly, the defendants [Sebelius and HHS], their agents, officers, and employees are temporarily ENJOINED and RESTRAINED from any effort to apply or enforce, as to plaintiffs, the substantive requirements imposed” by the mandate," said the judge's order.
