The major problem is obesity, reports military recruiters. But young adults are also being turned away because they lack high school diplomas, have felony convictions, and are on prescription drugs for ailments such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Obama care taking down the military.

The liberal left is being exposed to ¨World Cup¨ behavior that is nothing new to the rest of the world -- a world the left loves to claim is so much better than the mean and rotten USA.
They're so full of demands and 'good advise' for others, but turn the other way when confronted with their destructive behavior. I suppose higher taxes and more regulation is the answer.

It's not every day you hear a president joke about crack cocaine -- in White House pies, no less.
During a Monday event to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, President Obama praised retiring White House pastry chef Bill Yosses -- "the Crustmaster" -- for his delicious pies.
"I don't know what he does -- whether he puts crack in them, or ...," Obama said as the crowd chuckled.
How utterly presidential.
Ug! It's the culture

Liberalism is working, just get a bunch of tatoos, get on free Obama care and you never have to support your country.
Still more do not meet the military’s appearance standards. New rules issued in March forbid large-scale tattoos or more than four visible on a soldier’s arms or legs. Tattoos are forbidden on other parts of the body not covered by a uniform.

¨Ordained¨ is a good term. Sounds religious. Can I use it instead of ¨indoctrinated?¨
LOL
that would really seem to fit better for the far right, wouldn't it? especially considering the recent SCOTUS decision...

Put a pipe through your nose or ears and get out of serving. Liberalism is working. How about getting your balls pierced, Obama did.

In addition, potential recruits are being turned away because of extreme piercings, such as ear gauges that create large holes in people’s earlobes.

At least we have 5 judges who know why the Constitution exists.

Thank you for reminding us again about Obama's disconnect from the real world.
He gets ole' Harry to reject every single bill passed by the House - some bipartisan - so he can claim gridlock and then right after the SCOTUS ruled to limit his overreach of executive power makes a grand announcement that he will bypass Congress - again - because nothing ever gets done otherwise.
Sounds like disconnect to me.
The solution is to remove ole' Harry. And things will get done.
lol! From your disconnected position?

Yep! It would to me too!

Fortunately, I'm better at independent thinking than you are!

If I didn't know better, I'd say you were an intolerant liberal.
All conservatives want the government to stay out of our lives.
Both sides have strong feelings and opinions about social issues - especially abortion and gay marriage.
It's best to let people believe what they want to believe.
And smaller government doesn't include dictating social values. The federal government has already overstepped its role on many social issues affecting all of us with the help of the Supreme Court.
No condemnation concerning this?
lol! You should pander less to the religious right if that's the point you want to make son!

Maybe Hobby Lobby shouldn't have said why they wouldn't cover certain types of BC......then they could be as transparent as Obama.

Same thing O'Reilly was concerned about. He may be a little full of himself from time to time but he's got his finger on the pulse of what could easily be our undoing as a Republic. And that is, like you said, one more liberal judge could be the end of our freedoms as we know them.
Way too close for comfort. I agree with you and him 110%.

The Obamacare law allows for religious exemptions
http://www.irs.gov/uac/Questions-and-Answers-...
The Obama admin argued that this exemption could not be applied to any for-profit organization
This was saw as unfounded.
The ruling does not effect all businesses just those "closely held" or those with a limited number of investors.
Whether the public thinks religious exemptions should be allowed is irrelevant as this supersedes what the constitution states.
BS!

Constitution states no such thing. Does it say that the our Second Amendment rights are limited? Scalia says it does.

The Court ruled long ago that the Court is the last word on interpreting the Constitution. Do you think they always get it right? There are a number of recent rulings that the right wing media whined and cried about.

So take your hollow victories and watch them dissolve in the face of public outrage. Next thing you know Hobby Lobby will be crying discrimination because no one wants to work for religious bigots.
