New Mexico Supreme Court Rules Same-Sex Marriage Legal
"We conclude that the purpose of New Mexico marriage laws is to bring stability and order to the legal relationship of committed couples by defining their rights and responsibilities as to one another, their children if they choose to raise children together, and their property," the court's ruling read. "Prohibiting same-gender marriages is not substantially related to the government interests advanced by the parties opposing same-gender marriage or to the purposes we have identified."

<quoted text>Can Expanding Food Stamps Jolt The Economy?
by KATHY LOHR
July 07, 200912:18 AM
Through the recession, 4.8 million people have been added to the rolls of the federal food stamp program.
The federal food stamp program is being beefed up in hopes that it will help jolt the sagging economy back to life. However, economists are conflicted over how big an impact this increase will ultimately have.
Food In The Fridge
The government is spending $20 billion to expand the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, by about 13 percent. For Charmaine McCauley, a single mother of two in suburban Atlanta, this increase translates into an extra $45 a month.
"You know, just the staple stuff you need like bread, milk, cheese, eggs — those little things. That little extra can help with that," McCauley said.
McCauley had been doing well as a mortgage broker, but after the recession hit, she lost her job and her $680,000 home. About six months ago, she started receiving food stamps.
Amid the recession, 4.8 million additional people have sought out food stamp assistance. In February 2008, 27.7 million people nationwide were receiving food stamps, compared to 32.5 million people 12 months later.
McCauley now sells Mary Kay cosmetics full time, but she says the food stamps give her the extra help she needs to keep the refrigerator stocked for her family.
"It's definitely something that has helped our family," said McCauley. "A lot."
A Multiplier Effect
The idea of the stimulus plan is simple. The concept assumes people who get extra money will spend it — and that increased spending will bolster the economy.
"This injection of funds ends up being spent on food, and that has a multiplier effect through the economy," explains Ray Hill, professor of finance and economics at Emory University. "As more people are employed in grocery stores, more people are employed to make the food, more people are employed to grow the food as a result of that stimulus."
Most economists say every dollar spent on food will result in $1.50 to $2 in stimulus. The problem, Hill says, is that $20 billion is not enough.
"Increasing the amount of food stamps itself is not going to have a major effect on the economy. You get a good value for the money in the sense that each dollar is highly stimulative," said Hill. "But it's a drop in the bucket compared to the total size of the economy and the total employment in the United States."
Increasing Stability
The total cost of the federal stimulus plan is $789 billion. It is difficult to measure the effectiveness of the plan, but Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody's Economy.com , says the food stamp increase is a good, quick way to create spending.
"If the stimulus is working, along with all the other things policymakers have done, we should see a more stable economy by the fall and, hopefully, we start to see a bit of growth in 2010," said Zandi. "I don't think even under the best of circumstances we're going to come roaring back. But I think we are past the worst of it, and hopefully, we have a more stable economy later this year and into next."
Zandi says spending federal dollars on food stamps, benefits for the unemployed, aid to state governments and infrastructure improvements provides the best chance of stimulating the economy out of the recession.
Others fear too much of the stimulus money will not be spent until 2010 or 2011, and by then the economy is expected to begin turning around on its own.

he's talking about every judge. no matter personal ideology.

so what was the last thing a conservative judge screwed up? this is a good one....

Judge Reprimanded for Refusing to Officiate Same-Sex Weddings for Religious Reasons

....the Judicial Conduct Commission filed a complaint against Tabor, claiming that in refusing to perform gay weddings, he violated the state’s anti-discrimination law, which says that sexual orientation is a protected class.

http://conservativenews247.com/article/view/6...

there are many stories about conservative judges ignoring the law. we have Supreme Court conservatives speaking at political functions, and we have those same espousing their conservative views in the national press.

despotism indeed.

Obama staffer and Rev Jim JOnes was a Democrat...

'I was living in San Francisco during the period when Jim Jones was a Democratic power broker, known for his ability to deliver thousands of votes. I recall that in 1976, Assemblyman Willie Brown, later the longtime speaker of that body, compared Jones to Martin Luther King, Angela Davis, Albert Einstein, and Chairman Mao in an introduction. That same year, Walter Mondale, Jimmy Carter’s vice-presidential candidate, met personally with Jones. So did Jimmy Carter’s wife, Rosalynn. Among dozens of accolades from leading Democrats that Jones collected was this one from Joseph Califano, who was secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Jimmy Carter:“Knowing your commitment and compassion, your interest in protecting individual liberty and freedom have made an outstanding contribution to furthering the cause of human dignity.”

Radio host Rush Limbaugh on Thursday similarly claimed Robertson was suspended because of his religious beliefs.

"Now, excuse me for just a second here, but who is being discriminated against here except Phil Robertson? Who just lost a job because of religious beliefs?" he asked. "Nothing happened to any gay people or homosexual people. Nothing happened to them."

different day....

RUSH: It's about a family that have become multimillionaires in the duck-calling business. These guys make the -- quack, quack -- things that hunters use to call ducks. They're the Stradivarius of duck calls, and they have made multiple millions, and there's a reality TV show about these people, and it's called Duck Dynasty. I was reading about it. I haven't seen an episode yet. Well, I take it back. I did watch 10 minutes of an episode this morning 'cause I read a story about how it is cleaning up in the ratings. It's wiping everything out, Duck Dynasty. And the episode I watched, folks, I'm sorry -- he-he-he-he -- I don't know. I've gotta take a break. I don't have enough time to go into it now, but I will. I am not ducking it.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Duck Dynasty. If you know Duck Dynasty, you know America. Duck Dynasty is cable's top-rated reality series this year. It beat the finale of American Idol, and it is the number two original series overall behind The Walking Dead. Now, I can't tell the difference. Only kidding.
