This fight's not about religion, it's not about culture, it's about politics, pure and simple. The only winners have been the lawyers, as the litigation has dragged on for so long in state and federal courts.
I disagree, both as to the reason for the litigation--a battle to uphold First Amendment principles--and regarding "winner" lawyers. The attorneys who have been representing the litigants have NOT profited from the case.

This is just FYI. Not expecting any response and am not making any particular statement. But for those on Medicare, my husband received a letter from his secondary saying he "might not" be able to keep that insurance in 2014. It had to be approved by CMA. It can make you a little nervous if you let it, especially when the ACA has had such a bad track record so far. I'm just saying the future of healthcare is at best unpredictable.
This is just FYI 2. Not expecting any interest, but am making a particular statement: Many States have decided not to expand their Medicare programs, so those living in States which allow one to qualify for any type of 'socialized medicine'
should really just be glad they do qualify. They're the lucky ones.

If you didn't qualify for Veteran's Administration benefits, like 30,000 other veterans don't, you'd be 'a little MORE nervous...I'm guessing.

Mussolini was famous for keeping the trains running...and Obama seems to be doing pretty well in that particular regard. Transportation is hurting far less than the destinations, Chris...Obama is a big business sycophant. Witness Wall Street.

He's a friggin' Bush clone...only, the trains keep running on his watch. And I mean that literally - train traffic has increased by 3 times what it was 10 years ago. If you can pass a drug test, and have a CDC, you're practically guaranteed a job with the railroad here....and the railroads are STILL an excellent field to be in. Retirement is the shiznitz.

Just sayin'.

You're right about the lawyers not profiting, although maybe there was some job security for San Diego city attorneys.

;-)

On the first amendment issue ... I don't know that the cross actually did rise to the level of an 'endorsement of religion' when the initial suit was filed against the city.

Once the city began all the manipulations to avoid complying with the series of verdicts against it, however, it changed the game in my opinion.

Could it be the games they play? In an ongoing soap opera here the regulatory agency over our power companies just gave duke permission to charge us for years for a plant they now say they never will build. Early on Obama was for it too on one of his many trips to our fair state.
I don't know why the Administration filed an appeal last year - the one that was turned down by the Supreme Court and lead to the most recent decision. The case became federal when the city transferred ownership of the land to the federal government.

That's got nothing to do with Duke in Florida. All the decisions about what they can charge and when they can charge it are made in Tallahassee.

Don't know about Florida specifically, but because of the high cost of building any kind of power plant, utility companies went to state legislatures or regulatory commissions and got bills passed or administrative decisions made that enabled them to charge in advance. Consumer advocates and their allies - the Ralph Naders of the world - fought that tooth and nail, but in many (most?) states they lost.

Of course, if the consumer advocates and their allies had there way there wouldn't BE any new power plants built - they always seem to find a reason to oppose any particular plant.

Who are these 30,000 veterans that don't qualify for VA benefits?

Those 'less than honorably discharged', and those who've been at the trough too long.

Don't play like you didn't already know one could exhaust one's benefits as a veteran...

In any case, they're more 'nervous' than lis, about whether or not they ever get to see a doctor for health care, rather than trauma care.......which is the only kind of care they get when they DO get medical 'care'

I've never heard of a veteran 'exhausting' their medical benefits.

It will take a long while, but we'll see how it ultimately turns out. It's not an isolated issue, prayers at City Council meetings, for example, raise similar Constitutional concerns.

This is a good example of why YOU should stay out of correcting other posters' msgs.
