Not sure what all that means but pretty sure there was an insult somewhere in there.
Preserving personal freedoms, personal choices and personal liberties is not just a Christian concept.
If you think an overbloated government who can't even manage or keep up with the abuses in the entitlement programs now, just wait until Obamacare hits the fan.
You haven't seen poor yet...
This is going to backfire on the same people Obama and you seemingly think bigger government can save.

GATED COMMUNITY: Shops that would normally be open are shuttered, their anti-crime gates pulled down, as merchants along Church Avenue were taking no chances yesterday.

A normally bustling stretch of East Flatbush was a ghost town yesterday, as merchants refused to open their businesses in fear of a fresh round of looting and rioting over the fatal police shooting of a local teenager.

Merchants were willing to lose a day’s receipts rather than have their stores trashed and robbed by supporters of Kimani Gray, 16, a Bloods gang member whom cops shot Saturday night after he allegedly pulled a revolver from his waistband.

does anyone think the thug's gun was "registered" or that he would comply with some loon politicians proposed "anger management seminar" requirements?

Despite Talk of Cuts, Members of Congress Push More Spending

Like many House Republicans, Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho supports “drastically reducing discretionary spending” and warns that further growth in national debt could be “disastrous for the economy.” But as chairman of a powerful appropriations subcommittee in the House, Simpson takes a different tack, especially when it comes to programs that impact his home district.

“Simpson Secures Wildfire Funding in House Budget Bill,” his office announced last week in a press release, trumpeting Simpson’s “instrumental” role in adding $570 million in additional funds for wildfire suppression in a bill that passed the House Wednesday. Idaho has been particularly hard hit by recent fires, and the National Interagency Fire Center is located on the edge of his congressional district.“Idaho and the West faced an intense fire season in 2013,” Simpson said in the release,“requiring more funding than initially budgeted to protect communities and manage resources.”

Simpson is by no means an exception. Even in this new age of austerity, sequestration and budget cutting rhetoric, powerful members of Congress are having their way, defending favorite programs and finding money for pet projects. Key committee assignments can still mean millions for constituents back home.“In this earmark moratorium era, it’s less about stuffing in your pork projects than protecting your special interests back home,” explains Steve Ellis, the vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a group that seeks to identify wasteful spending.

Consider the Speaker John Boehner, who has been publicly leading the charge for less federal outlays.“Spending is the problem here in Washington,” he likes to say. But he joined a bipartisan group of Senators and Congressman in 2011 to push for $181 million in funding the Army does not want for an upgrade program at the Abrams tank manufacturing plant in Lima, Ohio, just a few dozen miles from Boehner’s own Ohio Congressional district. The Army has already announced that it plans to phase out the cold-war era tank, and had sought to wind down production in Lima. Last May, the Obama Administration, citing a “fiscally constrained environment,” formally objected to the new funding. In a letter to the former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, last year, more than 100 members of Congress, argued that “a modest and continued Abrams production for the Army is necessary to preserve the industrial base.”

Ryan's budget is vague compared to the non-existent budget submitted by the democrats.
Ryan said repeatedly last night he's just happy they finally submitted something. At least there's something to go on now instead of rejecting all the budgets submitted by the GOP and blaming them.

Don't think that trillion dollars in increased taxes is going to go over too well though.

But instead of sitting down to discuss how to save Medicare and Social Security, the liberal attack machine already has another ad out, the sequel to Ryan pushing Granny over the cliff.

That's productive.

Paul Ryan's Baffling Budget

It’s not just liberals and progressives who have difficulties with Rep. Paul Ryan’s latest budget plan. At the New York Times, the normally clement Ross Douthat goes for the jugular:

In effect, it sacrificed seriousness for “seriousness,” by promising to reach budgetary balance not over the long term (as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did) but in a ten-year window. This is not going to happen, and more importantly there’s no reason why it needs to happen: Modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility, and restructuring the biggest drivers of our long-term debt is a much more important conservative goal than holding revenues and outlays equal in the year 2023.

Justin Green warns that even if Douthat’s critique is dismissed as the ravings of a RINO, the pretty favorable climate Republicans can expect for the midterms could be changed — and not for the better — by pumping this message into the atmosphere:“Debt is a scary thing. We’ve spent the past six years dropping apocalyptic after apocalyptic warning. If we don’t change the total course of government now, we’re doomed. That requires cuts for everyone, even the aged.”

For Green, that tightens the laces on the Republicans’“double bind,” as Matt Continetti puts it in The Weekly Standard. Continetti rather malevolently points out that the GOP is so inured to radically reforming its message and its platform because there just aren’t any big constituencies on the right in favor of doing so.

Obama plantation voters will have lots of time to consume free healthcare services, given that the costs of Obamacare will make them unemployable.

Galt loves it when a plan comes together.

The Double Bind

What stands in the way of a Republican revival? Republicans.

I doubt John Boehner has read much feminist theory, but it’s never too late for him to start. He and other GOP leaders, not to mention the Republicans who want to run for president in 2016, might want to familiarize themselves with the concept of the double bind. They are in the middle of one, and it will be difficult for them to escape.

....Here’s the problem. The domestic proposals that have the greatest chance of making the Republican party attractive to the “coalition of the ascendant”&#8203;—&#82 03;immigrants, members of the millennial generation, single white women&#8203;—&#8203;in volve far more government intervention in the economy than the GOP coalition&#8203;—&#820 3;married white people, Wall Street, the Tea Party&#8203;—&#8203;wi ll allow. And we haven’t even mentioned changing the GOP approach to social issues, which would drive the Republican base of religious conservatives out of the party. Pursuing such proposals would break the coalition that puts Republicans close to a majority.

On the other hand, sticking with the policies that glue this so-close-to-a-majority coalition together would foreclose the possibility of expanding the GOP vote. And it would limit the vote Republicans pull from disaffected voters who used to support the GOP but have turned away for various reasons.

There’s more. Trying to appeal to the coalition of the ascendant and the Reagan coalition simultaneously would give the party a severe case of political schizophrenia. The GOP would bewilder its historic base of support while disappointing newcomers, leading to confusion, disillusionment, apathy, and perhaps (ultimately) dissolution.

The Republicans, like feminists, can’t have it all. They are trapped in the double bind.

You wouldn't know fair if it bit you.
The Democrats were right behind Bush voting for both wars and funding both wars until it became political expedient to become weasels.
It was the Democrats who insisted on broadening the mortgage loans to those who were not qualified.
Former President Bill Clinton bombed Iraq even before Bush did and declared his regime had to be taken down and replaced with a democrat-type of government in the Iraq Liberation Act of 1988 - of which every single Democrat was on board.
So when it comes to being fair, you're anything but.
Ok then, to NOT be fair Hecate spent a good deal of time in Mississippi so I think it's fair to say she's seen a lotta "poor" already. As for MY being fair or not, I think we need to return to that precipice you spend so much time in front of. Now, look down... no, further... a little more... just a squinch further... now what's that grey thing lying on the bottom? Look carefully... uh-huh... yup, it's your own ass isn't it? That's the thing about precipices, when you're on top you dread the bottom, when you're on the bottom you're just a stone's throw from the top. Yessirree, that whole perspective thing is a bitch, ain't it? Anyways there you (we) are in Orlando. So are we on top or on the bottom? i would suggest there's a good chance that living at Disneyworld married to a guy who flies little planes around like he was John Travolta is the bottom of the bottom and you certainly don't have to worry about falling up now do you?
