this is all i need to know.
Eight in ten voters agree that the special session should be focused on issues like ”education, jobs, and economy instead of bringing up social issues like abortion”; 71 percent think that the Governor and the legislature should spend less time passing laws restricting abortion. Again, both Independent and Republican voters share this view.

They really should spend LESS time trying to dictate social agenda bullchit and for a REAL change-actually use time productively in getting back to what they're supposed to be doing-which does NOT included telling people how to live their lives!

This has been the WORST admin I've ever seen for that kind of commie dictatorship ego-maniacal type crap.

Get back to business FOR America-NOT dictating against it!!

Still going in the opposite direction. But don't be disheartened. He still has his faithful lapdogs who might just decide to remain loyal and obey his every command. Unlike Bush when they were nipping at his heels every step of the way.
President Bush introduced Prescription Drug coverage under Medicare and a Guest Worker Program for Mexican workers. Of course President Bush did not attend his parties convention in 2012

Bush was not a racist.

Apparently the SCOTUS is still allowing the states to decided who may get married and leaves it with the state.

The Feds must acknowledge these marriages that are lawful

We could go over each of your propaganda assertions you are repeating, Kool-Aid drinker, but since you are dishonest, I won't.
Tenzing along with every liberal on here will never accept that black and Hispanic democrats predominantly voted yes on Proposition 8 as in California.

They will also never accept many democrats also oppose abortion.

And they will never accept most wars in the past century were started and accelerated under Democratic leadership.

It's just more convenient to blame republicans for their disillusionment.

Where is Chinese medicine covered in O'bamacare. Where are vitamins covered in O'bamacare--what about alternative treatments I would like to choose if I get sick? where are they covered? I am going to have to pay out of pocket for every thing I choose just like I do now. I do not use western medicine--and that is what O'bama covers. Medication for the masses. Not about health, not about care. This is not right wing. This is about people who care about their own health, not some government telling them.

Dick Durbin (D Walgreens) announces that the Great Lakes are evaporating at an alarming rate. However they are exactly the same as last year. And now as of today the Chicago area has flooded again. The last flood was less than two months ago. I don't know how Dick is keeping all that rain out of Lake Michigan.

GLOBAL WARMING! Yep, heard this morning he wants to start taxing the hell out of anything that emits carbon dioxide.
Two weeks ago we in Idaho were told that our electric rates are going up 12% because, among other things, the utilities bought expensive windmills that were subsidized by the federal gubbermint. Now that the feds are unable to continue subsidizing them, we're stuck with these windmills, which will never make electricity as economically as carbon fuels.
Oh yeah, we'll just absorb another Socialist/Democrat brain fart. Just like Obamacare, which we get to start paying for BIG TIME next year.
I wish there was a way to isolate the Socialist/Democrats so that THEY pay for their idiotic ideas. If they want socialized medicine, FINE! If they want to pay triple the amount for their electricity because of some myth about global warming, FINE! Just let the rest of us who haven't taken leave of our brains opt out.
It's astonishing and unbelievable at the same time.

Don't know which is the more bizarre - how astonishing and unbelievable it is or liberals panting and wagging their tails in anticipated excitement of getting a treat for their undying loyalty.

uh-hu

During the Obama administration, the Justice Department initially defended DOMA in court despite the administration’s desire to repeal it. But the Justice Department changed course in early 2011, finding that the law was unconstitutional and declining to defend it any longer. House Republicans have since spent hundreds of thousands of dollars taking over that defense.

so you're talking to republicans?

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as "Obamacare," what is now called alternative medicine may become as accessible and widely accepted as conventional care.

The controversial act specifically mentions complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative healthcare in seven different sections throughout the law. This is thanks in part to the efforts of the Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium, a coalition of major organizations started at the request of legislators in Washington devoted to the promotion of CAM and integrative healthcare in the U.S.
