Mormons still practice polygamy, they keep it hushed up these days. Warren Jeffs is in prison for Mormon polygamist behavior.
" jaw-dropping audio tape played in Warren Jeffs' sexual assault trial Tuesday shows the church leader instructing his sister wives that they must 'work together' to please him sexually.
Mr Jeffs, the head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is accused of sexually assaulting two girls, ages 12 and 15, he took as brides in 'spiritual marriages.'
He objected as the tape was prepared, and his frustrations continued as it was played, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Serial Hypocrite Elizabeth Warren Still Accepting Wall Street Money
Elizabeth Warren — who hauled in an eye-popping $5.7 million the last three months of 2011 — refused to swear off Wall Street money, instead claiming that any money she gets from deep-pocketed financiers is coming from those who “want reform.”

Anthony Samad, a Los Angeles-based scholar, social activist and columnist, said African-Americans are in a quandary, opposing discrimination against homosexuals because of their sexual orientation yet unwilling to endorse same-sex relationships or marriages.

“Most of us have a family member – I have a family member – who is gay,” Samad explained.“That does not necessarily mean that I am prepared to put aside what my moral imperative is.

African-Americans had the church when they didn’t have anything else. And that’s the conflict.”

He added.”We are a society that’s structured as males and females. If you want to advocate for a third gender, that should be the fight.

Until that is, in fact, what you’re asking for, what you’re asking African-Americans to do is to go against their belief system, which is the church.

Most of them believe a marriage should be between a man and a woman. You’re asking them to choose between your cause and their church.”

Rev. Horace Sheffield III, executive director of the Detroit Association of Black Organizations, said while moral issues are raised about homosexuality, equal outrage is not directed at what he called “heterosexual whores.”

He said,“We don’t have the same uncomfortableness with other forms of immorality in our churches. I know pastors who are on the Down Low, or whatever, and they preach against homosexuality.”

Lesbian activist Terri Leverette said White gays and lesbians pushed for marriage equity without consulting the Black LBGT community. She said she carries the triple burden of being Black, a woman and a lesbian.

"The line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe. His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters. His grandfather, Hussein Onyango, had at least four wives, one of whom, Akumu, gave birth to the president’s father, Barack Obama, before fleeing her abusive husband. Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961. "

Funny you'd be dumb enough to use a 'spiking the ball' analogy after the phony show Bush put on. Before the losses in Iraq began to accumulate.
Nit wit, the banner was the ship's and is flown whenever they complete a mission. The LEFT is totally clueless in their mud throwing!

A Discriminatory Tax Based on Race
by Harry C. Alford
NNPA Columnist

(NNPA)- Last September I was shown a video recording of an editorial board interview Barack Obama had with the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper during his campaign. The tape was terrifying. Candidate Obama was asked,“Do you want to raise energy prices so high that people will be forced to reduce their consumption?”

His answer was “Yes! I want to raise prices as high as I can to make people reduce their consumption.” There he was with these alarming words coming out of his mouth. In the name of cleaner air, he plans to hurt us all. However, some of us will be hurt more than others.

A household making $150,000 per year will have to weatherize their house, put off buying a car until they can get a good deal on a hybrid. Alter their vacation plans by reducing the desired amenities and cut back on clothing expense. A household making $30,000 will have to do more drastic measures. They can’t afford to weatherize their house and if they are renting the landlord will never do that. They will have to give up their car all together and take the bus everywhere or walk.

Their children will have to wear coats inside the house during the winter and illnesses will become more prevalent. The lifestyles of the low income will become dangerous and the fact is that people of color, Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be in this economic bracket than whites.

This week a very thorough study was released by Management Information Services, Inc. for the Affordable Power Alliance entitled:“Potential Impact of the EPA Endangerment Finding on Low Income Groups and Minorities”.

This research group has done work for the National Black Chamber of Commerce and we find them to be quite competent. The study summarizes:“On December 7, 2009 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued its long anticipated “Endangerment Finding”, which was a prerequisite to finalizing EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas emission standards.

Implementation of this Finding could affect millions of entities and lead to the most comprehensive, restrictive, and intrusive environmental regulations in U.S. history. A major impact of this Finding would be restrictions on the availability and increases in the prices of fossil fuels, especially coal. The economic impacts of the Finding in terms of GDP (Gross Domestic Product), incomes, industrial activity, jobs and other indicators would likely be severe. Due to their economic vulnerability, the impacts on low-income groups, Blacks, and Hispanics would be disproportionate and especially serious.”

Plan B?
Mitt Romney recently slammed the morning-after pill as an "abortive pill," but the Republican presidential candidate will be hobnobbing with its manufacturer while fundraising in Miami Beach next week.
As first pointed out by Think Progress, the host of Romney's $50,000-a-plate Star Island fundraiser on May 16 is local philanthropist and science museum benefactor Dr. Phillip Frost, who as chairman of the board of Teva Pharmaceuticals oversees the production of emergency contraceptive Plan B One Step.
Though scientists and long-standing federal policy agree morning-after pills like Plan B can't terminate a pregnancy once it has begun, Romney denounced the drug as "abortive" in Colorado February 6 while criticizing the Obama administration's healthcare plan, according to ABC News:
“This same administration said that the churches and the institutions they run, such as schools and let’s say adoption agencies, hospitals, that they have to provide for their employees free of charge, contraceptives, morning after pills, in other words abortive pills, and the like at no cost,” Romney said.“Think what that does to people in faiths that do not share those views. This is a violation of conscience."
As governor of Massachusetts, Romney futilely vetoed a bill that made the morning-after pill available over the counter to rape victims, announcing in the Boston Globe in 2005, "I am pro-life."
Uh oh, Fred's not gonna like this one bit.
And so it goes

Venture capitalists earn money for their investors. It is business.
Being a good venture capitalist just doesn't mean you know how to create jobs.

Okay, again attempt to follow along. The stabilizing of a business, if possible, also creates or keeps jobs. One of those pesky side effects the Dems would like to ignore.

Somebody, anybody, give me one concrete idea Romney has to help spur economic growth.
Romney's "change and hope" platform is guaranteed to create millions of new jobs. He's going to close down North Korea and Iran as well. Peace will finally be realized in the Middle East. Mitt will encourage private funding to develop salt water as a source for renewable enery, but that will most likely not be fully implemented until his second term. NASA will be rescued from it's current homeless shelter and given new life, a manned mission to Mars will happen in my lifetime, thanks to Mitt. What's not to like Homer?

Vulnerable Democratic Senators Not Backing Obama On Gay Marriage

Senators in tough races or in conservative areas aren’t standing up for marriage equality.

Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.)(pictured, left) and Claire McCaskill (Mo.)(center), the two most vulnerable Democratic senators, have declined to endorse Obama’s call for the legalization of gay marriage.

Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Bob Casey (Pa.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.)(pictured, right), Democrats who have easier races but in states that could become more competitive by November, have also backed away from Obama’s stance.

They all represent states with constitutional amendments or laws banning same-sex marriage.
