NO...but how would a NYC Bocajew like you know the difference...
"Catholic churches" is not precise term...
are you referring to the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Rome???...
far different from other Christian churches, all of which are generally independent operations..
if your question is about the Vatican, talk to someone who cares...
If you had been paying attention, you would know that I have been discussing the Catholic Church aka Roman Catholic Church aka Church of Rome. You can cherry pick all you want. Does not change the fact that they are intertwined. I have not been discussing other denominations. I am not discussing neighborhood churches that are struggling. I am discussing the one church that is attempting to influence legislation in this country. The one church that should have their tax exempt status denied. Stop trying to change the subject.

<quoted text>I'm looking for news stories where an outraged media is calling for Obama administration heads to roll after any one of the many scandals.

Maybe Christie needs to jump ship and declare himself a democrat. Then the media would be saying his actions today showed what an honest, tough, and no nonsense politician he was.

Still looking, by the way...

Yes, Obama played by the rules and acted the part as was expected of him to win. He even sent troops into Afghanistan and into harm's way because he couldn't say enough times it was the "right war" in order to win. But after being elected and sending those soldiers into a war zone, less than 24 hours later, he announced a withdrawal deadline.
Now that's what I call commitment by a Commander-in-Chief who believes in what he's doing at the risk of losing lives...not!
that 's funny, most rational people expect our gov't ot have an xit plan when devising a military operation...others have been chastised for not having one for very good reason/

stick to parroting, dear, independent thought isn't your cup of tea, obviously....

Don't think he ever got started. Unless you were the only one who heard him announce his 2016 candidacy and his withdrawal from the presidential race. Because I didn't.

A lot can happen in just one week in politics. We've got two more years to go before the mean lean liberal lying machine even starts its engines.

Someone noticed a big flaw in the Christie presser-he forgot to blame the previous governor.

don't go easy on me...why do those building have to have windows? and you know it is the windows that are the problem, not the buildings...
how much bird habitat is destroyed mining for coal to create the power the windmills would create? so many factors here. the bird deaths by windmills are insignificant in the larger picture...and i am a lifelong birder with a in the wildlife re-hab industry...
Yes, they are changing design of new office buildings. But they also run into windows in my house, and I like windows!!

Adding more stuff that kills birds doesn't make sense.

Even with windmills, the past years have seen an explosion of fossil fuel activities, huge areas denuded for fracking all over the USA. And we're still mining and exporting coal like mad.

So there is no net gain in windmills. Just another producer of energy, and not all that green!!

If we eliminated one bad activity when we adopt another, it would be better. But all we do is pile more and more on, to the point Mother Nature is in full disarray. There's an old Neil Young song "After the Gold Rush":

""Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.""

That was true 40 years ago, even more true today.

20 Forgotten Bush Scandals

Everyone remembers weapons of mass destruction, the US attorney firings. But historians will note that those are only the beginning of the Bush administration scandals

....20) The administration ethos was nicely summarized during the investigation in the firing of US attorneys, in a testy exchange between former White House Political Director Sara Taylor and Sen. Patrick Leahy. Taylor: "I took an oath to the presidentAnd I believe that taking that oath means that I need to respect, and do respect, my service to the president." Leahy: "No, the oath says that you take an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States. That is your paramount duty. I know that the president refers to the government being his governmentit's not."

Apparently he's no different than Obama - if anyone dares oppose you, go after We the People, the innocent constituents, not the political foe.

IRS goes after citizens associated with the Tea Party and conservative groups. Remember how fast the IRS was on Dr. Carson's butt after he dared challenge Obamacare?
