They'd also be appalled that they upheld American flag burning. Especially when Americans gave their lives to protect it.
But we've not only lost our minds but our moral compass in this nation. I blame much of it on nine people who wear black robes and get to decide all of our fate their entire lives.
as disgraceful as flag burning may be, one cannot decide which speech is free and which speech is not.....

Exactly!

I said the same thing last night when "3" grammar nazis was going off.

People think you need handwriting to ID who wrote something. Each of us has a unique way of expressing ourselves. If someone talks long enough using different monikers the sameness of the expressions gets very clear.

I can go through this board reading posts without looking who posted them and identify who posted it a great deal of the time.

well, the 40 million uninsuredas certainly thrown out for years and we were told that was the point of the ACA to insure all americans..

7 million out of 40 million does seem like a complete failure.

mandatory sentencing and zero tolerance policies are for people with zero intelligence. there is a reason we pay judges to do their job. they are to make decisions. otherwise we could just have a computer do it. same with school administrators and principles that feel they have tpo use zero tolerance policies to save them from having to do their job...
well stated.....

zero tolerance policies not only save school administrators from doing their job, but also allow them to duck the blame for bad decisions....

You'd think the so-called "surge" would make Democrats up for reelection stop in their tracks and start touting they voted for it. But they're still running from it like bats out of Haiti.
Even they know deception when they see it.
Interesting son.

Obama lies:
You can keep your insurance
You can keep your doctor
It was due to a video tape
He knew these were all lies when they came out of his lips-they were willful LIES.
You are not Obama and he isn't paying you to be a tool for him.
Be your own person who does not feel he has to justify certain things that don't deserve to be
FOX LIES:

Glenn Beck: Less than 10 percent of Obama's Cabinet appointees "have any experience in the private sector."

Glenn Beck: The Muslim Brotherhood has "openly stated they want to declare war on Israel."

Glenn Beck: John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, "has proposed forcing abortions and putting sterilants in the drinking water to control population."

Glenn Beck: Labor union president Andy Stern is "the most frequent visitor" at the White House.

Glenn Beck: "Why do we have automatic citizenship upon birth? We're the only country in the world that has it."

Sarah Palin: "Look at the debt that has been accumulated in the last two years. It's more debt under this president than all those other presidents combined."

Sarah Palin: "We're going to be looking at $8 billion a day that we're going to be pouring into foreign countries in order to import that make-up fuel that we're going to need to take the place of what we could have gotten out of the gulf."

Sarah Palin: "Democrats are poised now to cause this largest tax increase in U.S. history."

Sarah Palin: "Barack Obama had 150 days in the U.S. Senate where he was able to vote quite often 'present.' "

Bill O'Reilly: "Attorney General Eric Holder is involved in the dismissal of the criminal charges" against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation.

Bill O'Reilly: When White House communications director Anita Dunn said that Mao Tse-tung was "one of her favorite philosophers, only Fox News picked that up."

Bill O'Reilly: "We researched to find out if anybody on Fox News had ever said you're going to jail if you don't buy health insurance. Nobody's ever said it."

Glenn Beck, on his Fox show, Nov. 12, 2009: "But if you don't play by their new rules on health care -- oh, here's a new little twist. Have you heard this? You're going to be looking at a fun little stint in jail.... And oh, yes, the potential jail time. If you don't have health insurance? Jail time. You heard Nancy Pelosi defend that portion of the bill just a few minutes ago. There has got to be some way to force everybody to have health care, right? It is jail."

Many socially prominent leftists justify their uncouth, amoral behavior with the term ¨artistic license.¨

Many youthful idiots mimic these ¨cool¨ ones.

More interesting is the CBO numbers. We had 30 million prior to Obamacare. Obamacare kicked 15 million off their insurance policies and in 10 years we will have 30 million uninsured.

Not 40 million, 47 million. There are now 47 million uninsured in America. The law did the exact opposite of what it was for. And as BTO said, "You ain't seen nothing yet!"
