This comment makes no sense. SCOTUS bases their decisions are established laws and previous decisions. Marriage laws are well established and recognized.

Really? You are in favor abandoning ALL marriage laws that are regarded as a contract that protects the parties involved?
lol! Are you SERIOUS son?

Really?

One could argue whether government should regulate medical facilities in any way, but failing to regulate abortion clinics in the same manner as other outpatient surgical clinics is illogical.
So, all or none.
... but that's not what they're doing. They're specifically targeting clinics that perform abortions not all out-patient clinics. For years hospitals have been trying to get out-patient clinics to be regulated the same as hospitals because of the competitive edge the less stringent regulations give out-patient clinics.

When the government expands regulation that's bigger government. When the government only picks on one particular segment, one that public opinion supports, that's tyranny.

Before you start parsing the polling data the overwhelming majority of the public supports abortion under some conditions.
Yeah

You are misguided by your own prejudice viewpoint.
Using your above logic, using today's posts only, I could assume most Progressives use personal attacks rather than logic.
Therefore all Progressives lack logic or are truly the Looney Left.
The rest of comment did make sense; however, you want to call all who want to reduce government deficits and spending as Tea Party This would make the Majority of Americans Tea Party members.
ROTFLMAO! AMAZING!!!

I never said anything of the sort.

First, I said that, based on years of observation, it was a "safe assumption" that many of the anti-Obama posters were self-professed TP or sympathetic to what the TP supposedly represents.

I never ever ever ever said that anyone who wants to "reduce government deficits and spending" is TP. That's retarded on its face since I obviously disdain the TP yet I'm the only one on here who truly wants to reign in big government.

<psssst> that's why you poseurs don't like me; I point out your own love of big government.

Texas Hospital Associationís

Statement of Opposition to Section 2 of the Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 5 by Glenn Hegar

Relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers, and facilities; providing penalties

The Texas Hospital Association, on behalf of its 450 member hospitals, offers the following statement in opposition to Section 2 of the Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 5.

Hospitals Should Not Be Required to Grant Privileges to Physicians Who Do Not Practice in the Hospital.

THA agrees that women should receive high-quality care and that physicians should be held accountable for acts that violate their license. However, a requirement that physicians who perform one particular outpatient procedure, abortion, be privileged at a hospital is not the appropriate way to accomplish these goals. A hospitalís granting privileges to a physician serves to assure the hospital that the physician has the appropriate qualifications to provide services to patients in the hospital. Thousands of physicians operate clinics and provide services in those clinics but do not have hospital admitting privileges. Requiring a hospital to grant admitting privileges to physicians who do not provide services inside the hospital is time-consuming and expensive for the hospital and does not serve the purpose for which privileges were intended; rather, the Texas Medical Board is the appropriate agency to address whether physicians are delivering appropriate care to patients, as the TMB regulates all physicians. Hospitals should not be required to assume responsibility for the qualifications of physicians who do not practice in the hospital.

"Project SHAMROCK"

Wikipedia.org

Quote:
Project SHAMROCK, considered to be the sister project for Project MINARET, was an espionage exercise, started in August 1945 [1] that involved the accumulation of all telegraphic data entering into or exiting from the United States. The Armed Forces Security Agency (AFSA)[2] and its successor NSA were given direct access to daily microfilm copies of all incoming, outgoing, and transiting telegrams via the Western Union and its associates RCA and ITT. NSA did the operational interception, and, if information that would be of interest to other intelligence agencies was found, the material was passed to them.[3] "Intercepted messages were disseminated to the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD), and the Department of Defense." No court authorized the operation and there were no warrants

Its not what they "profess", for the most part I'm in complete agreement. Its the actions that reveal the hypocrisy that gets my goat.

They're liars just like the rest of the right, "advocates" of less government who instead grow government at every turn.

I've been posting examples of their big government proclivities for a couple of days now.

So the right dug in on the Senate immigration bill, they dug in to the tune of an additional $30 billion for border security.

That's NOT less government.

Better for you to tell me what legitimate interest government has in marriage beyond its contractual nature that is consistent with the right's "professed" desire for less government.

<quoted text>Lois Lerner is deeply embedded with the democratic voting machine, and a starlette not only for the liberal left in recent strategies, but since the days of the Clinton/Gore regime. Ms. Lerner joined the Federal Election Commissionís General Counselís Office in 1981, served as an Assistant General Counsel, and was appointed in 1986 to head the Enforcement Division. On December 1, 2000, after the defeat of Vice President Gore in his bid for president, outgoing and under articles of impeachment President Bill Clinton appointed Ms. Lerner to head up the entire commission in the position of Acting General Counsel for the FEC, replacing Lawrence M. Noble who left to become the Executive Director and General Counsel of the Center for Responsive Politics, a left leaning non-profit organization who operates opensecrets.org , targeting campaign donors. Prior to joining the FEC, she was a staff attorney in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
During Lernerís appointment at the Federal Campaign Commission in 1998, a case came under investigation by the House Committee Government Reform and Oversight. Committee members heard testimony concerning Federal Election Commission investigation and prosecution practices.&#8194;The particular incident in question was the FEC refusal to pursue Howard Glicken for soliciting and funneling contributions from Thomas Kramer, a German citizen, to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 1993. Ms. Lerner defended her dropping the case because the FEC would not have had enough time to pursue Glicken in a lengthy litigation before the statute of limitations expired.&#8194;Burton and others wondered whether they had dropped their investigation because as stated by Lerner, Glicken was a close friend of Vice President Gore, and it would be unwise to investigate.
Frankly sonic-I don't care where this bitch came from-she needs to be arrested and sentenced to rot in a jail for the rest of her miserable commie life.
quite the history she has.

so why did Bush like her?
