It's sad how ignorant republicans really are.They criticize Obama for taking vacations and refuse to admit he's no where close to the amount of vacation time bush the younger took.At the same stage in his administration,shrubby had taken way more time off then Obama has.Then again,the truth has always been anathema to republicans and their toadies.

Village Cleared for Not Serving Hells Angels
By JACK BOUBOUSHIAN
ShareThis
CHICAGO (CN)- Two Hells Angels bikers cannot contest an unofficial ban against them from bars and restaurants in a small Illinois village, a federal judge ruled.
Gary Kohlman and Allen Roberts, who belong to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, claimed that the mayor of Midlothian, a small village 25 miles south of Chicago, and its police chief, ordered local restaurants and bars to refuse them service because of their Hells Angels' membership and because they wear the gang's insignia and logos.
Federal and state law enforcement classify Hells Angels one of four outlaw motorcycle gangs in the United States, calling the club a conduit for criminal activity.
Midlothian Police Chief Vince Schavone felt the same way, and the officials together claimed that 20 years of bomb threats and police harassment from the Hells Angels left them with a "guarded view" of it and other motorcycle clubs that congregate in Midlothian, including the Axemen and the Tunnel Rats.
U.S. District Judge Blanche Manning framed the policy in question as follows: "Although it is not mandated by a Village ordinance, a number of bars in Midlothian prohibit patrons from displaying motorcycle club colors. These so-called 'no-colors' policies are presumably employed to reduce the potential for conflict between members of rival clubs."
"On the other hand, some Midlothian bars and clubs welcome bikers wearing their colors," she added. "For example, Jack's Place has no dress code and has never turned away a customer wearing motorcycle club colors."
But Kohlman and Roberts claimed the village is stamping out these bars with a vengeance. For example, Schavone threatened Jon Plowman, a co-owner of O'Leary's Pub, with revocation of his liquor license unless he banned "colors" in O'Leary's, they argue.
In his deposition, Plowman recalled Schavone's ominous words:
"This is not baseball," Schavone allegedly said. "You do not get three strikes. This will be your only warning. Get rid of the Hells Angels or I will get rid of you."
The bikers argued that this latent policy infringed Hells Angels' rights to equal protection, free speech and free assembly.
Although the court found that the plaintiffs had proved the state-action requirement for a constitutional civil rights case, it rejected all of their constitutional claims, beginning with the alleged denial of equal protection.
"Members of a motorcycle club do not belong to a protected class [such as a race or religion]," Manning wrote. As such, Kohlmann could prevail only by proving that "the state treated him differently than other similarly situated individuals and [...] there [was] no rational basis for the different treatment."
But "the plaintiffs fail to [demonstrate] that specific similarly situated individuals" - namely, members of other motorcycle clubs - "were treated differently," the ruling states.
Kohlman and Roberts' First Amendment claims suffered similar fates.
The First Amendment protects only "expressive conduct" that conveys a "particularized message [that] would be understood by those who viewed it," Manning explained.
But at his deposition, Roberts said his farts stink really bad.
Because of this lack of expressive aims, the Hells Angels are not, as an organization, protected by the Free Assembly clause.
When Papa T's bar in Midlothian denied service to Kohlman and
The judge declined to assess whether Hells Angels is a club or a gang, noting that "there is no constitutional right to 'social association.'"
"The court appreciates that the plaintiffs are dissatisfied with the defendants' negative views of the Hells Angels," Manning wrote. "Nevertheless, the evidence identified by the plaintiffs is insufficient to create a triable issue of fact."
So what?

last year the taxpayers paid $85,000 for telephone fees , $ 60,000 on travel for W. Bush with a total of 1.3 million for him last year ... we spent close to 3.7 million for 4 ex presidents and 1 presidential widow last year ...

The only benefit to amnesty for illegals will be the end of the Republican party.

Only problem? It would give the equally corrupt Democrats unlimited power to turn us into a European, completely broke nanny state. Next stop... raiding YOUR bank account to fund your King Obama's luxury.

Far fetched? Nope! It's happening in Cyprus.

If you support Republicans or Democrats... YOU SUPPORT government theft of private savings.

It is time for YOU to WAKE UP!

The only exception of course would be Israel. We should increase our aid to Israel and provide them with the latest weaponry.

Just because I'm interested, why are conservatives so mad all the time? I mean, for the party that calls themselves morally superior, you certainly hate a lot of groups:

Blacks, Latinos, women, gays, the poor, the sick who can't fund care for themselves, anyone who's not Christian, the president, liberals, moderates whom you claim as liberals, shit, you even hate OTHER CONSERVATIVE when they don't agree 100% with you (see governor Chris Christie or conservative comments on Bill O Riley after his "gay marriage doesn't bother me" comment )

Do as I say, not as I do, mentality... However, I can't blame you. As a conservative, you're required to believe the Christian god is the one true god, and he spouts the same exact thing...

Politicians looking for savings to deal with the national debt crisis should perhaps start by working from home.
Barack Obama and his family cost the taxpayer $1.4billion per year, according to a recently published book.
By contrast, the British Royal Family costs less than $60million each year.

Ha ha that's what I'd expect from someone who has nothing to back themselves up ;)

What you did there is called an "ad hominem" attack, and in case you're wondering, no, it doesn't validate your unsourced "facts."

I would just like to say I didn't vote for the o-man , but I think trying to blame him for all the money problems is wrong , we pay over 225 million a year for pay and retirement for the house , senate , presidents and ex presidents ..they pay nothing into social security , health care or retirement and I don't see any of them repubs or dems doing anything about that , they all travel all over on our dime and its ok because they can , we need some people in office to change the system ...

The answer is simple, Taxed Enough Already. Term limits, and do not vote for incumbants of either party, they will start to get the message, no more career politicians, power corrupts! Don't allow any of them long enough to get comfortable, serve and then go back to work in civilian life , like the rest of us.
your right its simple , but people are so worried about repubs and dems they forget about the big picture ,
