Lobbyist Has An Indecent Proposal for Gays in the NFL

Jack Burkman’s gay-banning bill for the NFL is based on nothing but his own political agenda and anonymous Republicans looking for Tea Party cover.

While the lobbyist wouldn’t reveal the members of Congress who supported the bill, as specific language had not even been drafted, he did say that almost all shared something in common: They were all Republicans worried about a Tea Party challenge. Burkman told The Daily Beast he thinks “95 percent of supporters” will be Republicans facing primary challenges and therefore looking for political cover. Burkman spelled out his coalition, saying that one Senator and six members of the House were definitely on board, but that those numbers could expand to six Senators and 36 congressmen. And, of those 42,“all but one will do this politically because they have been under fire from Tea Party and far right wing element” in their states.

Burkman, who is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, brushed aside concerns about the bill’s constitutionality.“The last thing that Congress does is look at the constitutionality,” he said. Instead, the lobbyist insisted,“My experience is that Congress tends to run roughshod over constitutionality.” In fact, he added,“So far, of all the discussions that we’ve had, the legal end has been the last.” Instead, Burkman said the focus was on “substance” and “PR.”

CBO estimates 500,000 to a million more job losses with the minimum wage increase decree from on high.
As Krauthammer put it, those who get bumped up to $10.10 will make more money which is good...but those who were making $8 will get bumped down to $0.
Their job had to pay for the lucky ones who will now be making more.
This administration can't seem to grasp the concept of "unintended consequences" or why we have three branches of power to ensure they don't happen with a pen and a phone.
Once again Carol, you're just reading the part of the report you want and misstating that. Over all, the budget office estimated that lifting the minimum wage to $10.10 and indexing it to inflation would reduce total employment by about 0.3 percent, or 500,000 workers. But it cautioned that the estimate was imprecise, with the job losses likely to fall in a range from practically nothing to one million.
Even at the 500,000 mark the increase in unemployment would amount to three tenths of one percent.
Several top labor economists said on Tuesday that the budget office was overstating the proposal’s effect on the job market. Lawrence Katz of Harvard, for instance, said that the budget office had used “a lot of off-the-shelf estimates” of the jobs effect, and that if it had emphasized findings from higher-quality studies, it would have found a smaller or negligible impact on total employment.
It will lift 900,000 families out of poverty reducing government expenditures for AFDC and SNAP programs. It will also increase the incomes of 16.5 million low-wage workers in an average week. This will increase spending on goods and services and stimulate the economy.
Obama only increased the minimum wage for workers in federal contracts. Raising the minimum wage across the board needs the approval of Congress nitwit.

True. Guess what I meant to say is let's hope a Republican Congress in November can put a cork in the leak of corruption and "income equality except for the few elite" until we have a real leader in 2016.
Ever read Orwell's "Animal Farm"? It was about communism and how a few pigs decided all animals were equal but the pigs were the only ones who got rich off the backs of the other animals who were "equal" doing work they weren't designed to do and who began to feel oppressed, overworked and under-appreciated. Oppression and rebellion was the outcome.
Like in all communist countries.
Just more of Carol's delusional claptrap.

Look clown, a poll released by Quinnipiac University on May 30, 2013 revealed that 76% of registered voters — including 63% of Democrats — favored the appointment of a special prosecutor to independently investigate the allegations of wrongdoing.

There was no targeting.

Issa, being the dishonest POS he is, asked for a report on the IRS investigating right whiner groups seeking the non-profit status.

The IRS provided such a report.

Then Issa said that since the report only talked about right whiners, that the IRS targeted them.

The dumbass lying Issa never mentioned that he requested information on only right whiner groups.

More proof you people are dumber than sh*t.

CIA-commissioned climate change report outlines perils for U.S. national.

U.S. national security leaders believe that the accelerating pace of climate change will place severe strains on U.S. military and intelligence agencies in coming years; the reason, according the National Research Council, the U.S. top scientific research body: climate changes will trigger increasingly disruptive developments around the world; a 206-page National Research Council study, commissioned by the CIA and other U.S. intelligence services, concludes that states will fail, large populations subjected to famine, flood, or disease will migrate across international borders, and national and international agencies will not have the capacity or resources to cope with the resulting conflicts and crises

Arizona Business Community Abandons GOP On Anti-LGBT Bill

"Anything that could impede our economic progress of course impacts the business community. Throughout Arizona's history, you have these outside dollars weighing on their mind. I think she'll pay more heed to the business community. Whatever she does will impact the chances of the next Republican candidates."
