Obama Administration Pro Prayer ..

Supreme Court to consider prayer at government meetings
Baltimore-area localities vary widely in practice
August 10, 2013|By Jonathan Pitts and Pamela Wood, The Baltimore Sun

Whether the Carroll County commissioners meet to discuss zoning, the budget or other local issues, they start the same way — with prayer.

Commissioners take turns offering the prayer, often invoking God or Jesus. All five commissioners stand, as do any audience members who choose to, and then the lawmakers go ahead with their business.

"Prayer adds a certain sort of reverence to what we're about to do," says Douglas Howard, president of the Carroll County Board of Commissioners.

That view is not unusual in the Baltimore area. Three counties open meetings with a lawmaker's prayer, and the Baltimore City Council begins with the words of local clergy. But a lawsuit scheduled to reach the Supreme Court this fall could affect the ways such prayers are made.

The high court will review a ruling that a town near Rochester, N.Y., had violated the First Amendment ban on "establishment of religion." For years, the Greece town supervisor had invited a local minister to deliver an opening prayer at the council's monthly meeting. Members of the public attending the meeting were encouraged to join in the prayers.

Two residents, one Jewish and one an atheist, complained for several years that the prayers were offensive and inappropriate. Until they sued in 2008, only Christians had been invited to lead the prayers.

Seen through the eyes of a "reasonable observer," the town's prayer policy "must be viewed as an endorsement of … a Christian viewpoint," the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals said in ruling against the town. The Supreme Court agreed in May to hear the town's appeal.

The case has led to an unusual agreement between

the Obama administration and congressional

Republicans that town councils should be allowed to

open their meetings with a Christian prayer.

Bush administration payment of columnists
The Bush administration payment of columnists refers to the payment of public funds to right-wing media commentators by several U.S. executive departments under Cabinet officials to promote various policies of U.S. President George W. Bush's administration. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid to at least three commentators to promote Bush administration policies.

Bill O'Reilly says it real.
right carol?
As I recall, the evidence Bill O'Reilly points to when he states Obama was born here is the notifications in the paper. I don't recall O'Reilly ever making any comment on the authenticity of the obviously fraudulent birth certificate posted on the White House website.
Besides, Bill O'Reilly also stated "the South Vietnamese wouldn't figtht for themselves." The facts of history prove that wrong.
I may agree with O'Reilly 80 percent of the time. Aside from your reference being mistaken, thinking O'Reilly said the birth certificate was authentic instead of the fact, as I am aware of, that O'Reilly referenced the newspaper notice of Obama's birth about 10 days after the date, there is nothing I'm aware of from O'Reilly that gives any indication of his thoughts on whether the obviously fraudulent birth certificate shown on the White House website is authentic.
Kindly enlighten us on this....

Obama was a college dropout from Occidental who moved to New York with his boyfriend, who actually did transfer from Occidental to Columbia, and there has never been any evidence found that Obama has ever even been on the campus at Columbia.

There is nothing said about Obama that isn't fraudulent.

Now, what is the name on the supposed diploma Obama supposedly received from Columbia?
Got a problem there, don't you?

Release all State Department records concerning Barry Soetoro and his mother. Let's see who went where and with what name.
Supposing Obama is this same Barry Soetoro, when did Barry Soetoro become Barack Obama? He entered the United States with the name Barry Soetoro. Why is he using the name Barack Obama now? Where's the paper trail on that?... inquiring minds want to know.

And, what's the name on the supposed diploma Obama supposedly received from Columbia?
Tell us why Columbia would have on any list the name "Barack Obama" as a graduate, considering he was Barry Soetoro when he claimed to go to Columbia.

Ronald Reagan was a Democrat. If you listen to his early speeches as a Democrat, you'd never know it was the same man. He learned that there was more money in it for him as a Republican. He and Nancy were opportunists. Who was it that bought them that ranch?

Roe v Wade was initially limited in its scope.
•In the first trimester, the state could treat abortion only as a medical decision leaving medical judgment to the woman's physician.
•In the second trimester (before viability), the state's interest was seen as legitimate when it was protecting the health of the mother.
Things tend to change when you open Pandora's Box - for the worst.
Aw, the heck with abortion. We just take the cute ones and set 'em aside, then shove a pogo-stick up the asses of the ugly ones and send 'em on down the road, eh? New meaning to the expression, "I just had a bouncing baby boy!"

The problem with your argument is - if health care reform's time had really come after enough time had passed following 9/11 and two wars - that kind of massive legislation affecting so many people should have been strictly bipartisan. Republicans were pretty much completely left out of any discussion and their input ignored.
Would you support a massive piece of legislation passed by a partisan Republican vote without one Democrat on board?
Would you support any legislation passed by a partisan Republican vote if over 60% of Americans were against it?
Surely, you see your dilemma defending this partisan monstrosity.
The Republicans were never going to cooperate with Barack Obama on anything nitwit, they decided that on the night he was inaugurated at the Caucus Room Restaurant where they took a blood oath too block anything he proposed even if they thought about it in the first place.
How many times is the President going to reach his hand out just to have it bitten?
If you break down the ACA into its component parts, like guaranteed issue, family coverage extension, elimination of the life time cap and accountability for premiums paid most people approve of them. In states that have set up exchanges like New York and Maryland premiums have gone down.
Let me ask you this Carol since you claim to be such a Christian. Why do you want a cancer patient to have treatment cut off? Why do you want a childhood cancer survivor to be unable to get insurance for the rest of their lives? Why do you want my family to spend $4000 more so that my son is insured?

Yeah and all those "present" votes were 3% of the almost 4000 votes he cast. Don't these right wing whack jobs ever check what they post? Well, no that's why they can put out so many. It'd take too much time to actually verify information.
The present votes, just like the birther movement, was started by hillary clinton.
