State Attorney Gen. Kathleen Kane announced Thursday in Philadelphia that she will not defend Pennsylvania’s law effectively banning same-sex marriage against a legal challenge in federal court.

The 47-year-old Kane, who made waves Thursday by refusing to defend the state’s same-sex marriage ban in federal court, has quickly established herself as an up-and-coming Democrat who is willing to challenge powerful politicians to achieve her aims. She has already clashed repeatedly with her state’s Republican governor, Tom Corbett, who is slipping in the polls and must now defend Pennsylvania’s gay marriage law on his own.

“It’s the role of the attorney general to be an independently elected voice,” Kane said the day after winning the attorney’s general race.“People see politics as a close-knit, good ol’ boy network, and I want to change that starting Day One.”

Under the Mexican law,

illegal immigration is a felony,

punishable by up to two years in prison.

Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years.

Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms.

Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to

“economic or national interests,”

violate Mexican law,

are not

“physically or mentally healthy” or lack the

“necessary funds for their sustenance”

and for their dependents.

Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

in the country legally;

have the means to sustain themselves economically;

not destined to be burdens on society;

of economic and social benefit to society;

of good character and have no criminal records; and
contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:

immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;

foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;

foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;

foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;

foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;

those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

Who could disagree with such a law?

It makes perfect sense.

The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens

— and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens,

illegal and illegal.

Under the constitution, the Ley General de Población, or
General Law on Population,

spells out specifically the country’s immigration policy.

..........

would be a good start

The GOP has to embrace the blacks,gays,immigrants,abortio n rights,womens rights,equal pay for women, elderly,disabled vets,the poor and the homeless..........I think GOP leaders are starting to figure out that their party has no future in its current form. Yet, they do not understand the intricacies of this problem. They know they won't win the White House ever again without being able to carry a significant part of a minority group. They seem to think they can win back the Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections, but know that if they do not, the Senate will be permanently lost to them, too. Which makes immigration reform most likely to pass in next year's lame duck session if they cannot win the Senate. If they win the Senate next year, the pressure than falls squarely on unpopular GOP Tea Party Senators up for re-election in 2016. These Senators will be forced to moderate themselves in 2015-16. How much they will do so is the big question.

Boehner better get it passed or the Republicans are going to have a brutal 2014.

Women are rising up because of the War on Women, African Americans are rising up because of Voter Suppression backlash, now you want to add Latinos because you won't bring a bipartisan Immigration Reform Bill up for a vote in the House?

Keep poking the bear, GOP. You saw how well magical thinking worked for you in 2012.

Zimmerman Trial: The Holder Justice Department’s Latest Abuse of Power
Judicial Watch has released documents showing the latest abuse of power by the Department of Justice (DOJ): helping “organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.”
Whatever one may think about the guilt or innocence of Zimmerman in his ongoing trial, we should all agree that the chief law enforcement agency of the federal government should not be involved in stage-managing public protests. Yet according to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request, the Community Relations Service at Eric Holder’s DOJ “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen.”
The Community Relations Service provided “support for protest deployment” and “technical assistance” to event organizers for a march and rally on March 31. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Community Relations Service staff even helped organize a meeting between the city of Sanford and the local NAACP that resulted in the temporary resignation of police chief Bill Lee.
http://blog.heritage.org/2013/07/10/zimmerman...
It was widely reported in the news at the time that the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division was looking into the killing of Martin and release without arrest of his killer. That's their role. That's what they were created to do.

Seriously, you'd have to be a wingnut of the lowest intelligence to think that the Civil Rights Division investigating a possible civil rights violation is somehow scandalous. LMAO!

Poll: Obama approval rating 'under water'
A new poll gives President Obama an overall approval rating of 44%, with 48% of respondents disapproving of his performance.
In late May, the Quinnipiac University national poll gave Obama similar ratings -- 45% approval, 49% disapproval.
"President Barack Obama is in a slump, under water for the last two surveys," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
http://www.usatoday.com/story/theoval/2013/07...
Polls rise. Polls fall. Celebrate while you can.

At the end of his second term, Ronald Reagan had a 46% approval rating. I suppose that means he was a failure too, huh?

House Republicans push to slash IRS budget by 24 percent, cite abuses and sequestration
House Republicans want the IRS to pay for targeting political groups and are pushing legislation that would cut the tax collecting agency’s budget by $3 billion -- nearly a quarter of what it received last fiscal year.
The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to start “marking up” the spending bill Wednesday.
While it’s unlikely that such a severe cut will pass both congressional chambers, it does give lawmakers another opportunity to verbally punish the agency for unfairly scrutinizing conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.
The bill would place additional restrictions on spending at the IRS and prohibit employees from implementing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act – commonly referred to as ObamaCare. It also bans conferences, the production of videos and curbs what lawmakers see as a number of abuses at the IRS.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/10/ho...
Another useless vote everyone knows will go nowhere and held for only one reason - to appeal to the wingnut base. Just like the, what...40 votes to repeal the ACA now? A meaningless exercise.

The right is in the process of deciding that they can win with an all-white vote after all. So they're doubling down on the strategy that's lost them the White House the last two times.

LMAO! And I LOVE it!

Thanks for cheering me up, Legacy. I needed this little reminder of how pathetic the GOP really is this afternoon. LOL!

Wegmans cuts health benefits for part-time workers
Et tu, Wegmans?
The Rochester-based grocer that has been continually lauded for providing health insurance to its part-time workers will no longer offer that benefit.
Until recently, the company voluntarily offered health insurance to employees who worked 20 hours per week or more. Companies are required by law to offer health insurance only to full-time employees who work 30 hours or more per week.
Several Wegmans employees confirmed part-time health benefits had been cut and said the company said the decision was related to changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act.

Now this is TRULY pathetic. Claiming that the ACA forbids employers from offering health insurance to workers who work less than 30 hours/week?

How stupid would you have to be to swallow that line of bullshit?

Just about as stupid as our friend Legacy here.

ROFLMAO!!

Oh sweet Jesus! I just clicked the link and look what I found.

Beginning with the sentence IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING the last sentence Legacy chose to post here...

----------

However, part-time employees may actually benefit from Wegmans’ decision, according to Brian Murphy, a partner at Lawley Benefits Group, an insurance brokerage firm in Buffalo.

“If you have an employee that qualifies for subsidized coverage, they might be better off going with that than a limited part-time benefit,” Murphy said.

That’s because subsidized coverage can have a lower out-of-pocket cost for the insured employee while also providing better benefits than an employer-paid plan.

Under the Affordable Care Act, part-time employees are not eligible for health insurance subsidies if their employer offers insurance.

“It’s a win-win. The employee gets subsidized coverage, and the employer gets to lower costs,” Murphy said.

http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/arti...

----------

How about that - Obama's legacy in terms of the ACA is "a win-win" for employers AND employees.

LOL!

Legacy - I knew you were a dishonest partisan who has no compunction at all about distorting the facts, but I didn't realize just HOW staggeringly dishonest you are.

Next time, if you're going to deliberately distort what a news article says, don't provide the link. Maybe then you'd have a chance of preserving a SPECK of your credibility.

After all of the headlines in the past week, we were surprised to see Pelosi’s assertion that the “mandate was not delayed.” Indeed, just minutes before Pelosi made these comments, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), held his own news conference to complain that other elements of the law have not also been delayed.

“The president has delayed Obamacare’s employer mandate, but hasn’t delayed the mandate on individuals or families,” Boehner said.“I think it's unfair and indefensible. If you’re a software company making billions of dollars in profits, you’re exempt from Obamacare next year. But if you’re a 28-year-old struggling to pay off your student loans, you’re not.”

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said she was “diminishing the impact of the decision,” which he said would result in “no fundamental change to the law.” He noted that the Treasury announcement still encouraged employers to maintain or expand coverage during the 2014 transition period, and that employees could still qualify for premium tax credits and participate in health care exchanges. Moreover, he noted that the vast majority of firms with more than 50 employees — about 96 percent — already offer health-care coverage.

So what’s Boehner talking about when he says a software company making “billions of dollars” is exempt from Obamacare? Don’t firms as big as that already offer health care to employees?

Fact check rips Pelosi claim that ObamaCare mandate 'not delayed'
The big news on ObamaCare these past two weeks has been the administration's announcement that it will delay by one year the requirement on businesses to provide health insurance.
Nancy Pelosi, though, had a curious take on the whole thing. Actually, she instructed reporters, "The mandate was not delayed."
The House Democratic leader used some creative reasoning to make her case -- she claimed the administration really only delayed the requirement on businesses to report insurance coverage details.
But The Washington Post fact-checker on Friday shut it down, effectively ruling that Pelosi is trying to "deny reality."
"Yes, reporting requirements were delayed. But there also was a one-year delay of the actual employer mandate. It's right there in the announcement," the Post wrote.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/12/fa...
Newsflash! Nancy Pelosi is NOT Barack Obama.

Pelosi can say stupid shit all the live long day and it doesn't mean A THING about President Obama's legacy.

Can't you find ANYTHING that the actual President has done to create a negative legacy for himself? LOL!

..........

In February, the Congressional Budget Office published its latest report on the "estimated impact" of the stimulus.

Although it had originally estimated the stimulus would cost $787 billion, CBO now says it will cost $831 billion.

In the second quarter of 2012, CBO estimates, somewhere between 200,000 to 1.2 million people have jobs they otherwise would not have were it not for the stimulus.

Assuming, optimistically, that the number is 1.2 million, that means each of those jobs cost taxpayers $692,500.

As time goes on, the maximum number of jobs sustained by Obama's stimulus will decline rapidly.

By the first quarter of 2013, it will sustain between 100,000 and 600,000 jobs, says CBO.

If it is 600,000, each of those jobs will have cost taxpayers $1,385,000.

By the fourth quarter of 2013,

the maximum number of jobs it sustains will be 400,000

— at a cost to taxpayers of $2,077,500 per job.

It is true that Obama entered office in the midst of a deep recession.

But, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, that recession ended in June 2009, almost three years ago.

What Boondoggle? Carney unaware of $34M military HQ troops won't use
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney apparently isn't reading his hometown paper.
The Washington Post carried a fairly explosive story on Wednesday about a $34 million military headquarters in southwestern Afghanistan that probably will never be used by U.S. forces. A scathing inspector general letter was also released Wednesday morning on the war-zone boondoggle.
But asked on Thursday whether President Obama was outraged by the waste, Carney said he hadn't heard anything about it.

But you never hear a PEEP out of them about waste, fraud, and abuse in the military.

...until Obama is President.

I wonder why that is?
