In California,’Moderate Democrat’ Is an Oxymoron
By Steven Greenhut Feb 14, 2013 3:30 PM PT

California taxpayers have nothing to fear from the new Democratic supermajorities in the state Assembly and Senate. That’s the assurance we keep hearing from the political class and interest groups in the Golden State, where Republican legislators are now reduced to irrelevancy and Democrats control two-thirds majorities to pass anything they want.

“Fortunately, there is a backstop to flagrant tax increases and immediate spending and it’s not Republicans -- it is the moderate Democrats,” according to an analysis by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of California.

According to this wishful thinking, the Democratic caucus is more divided than ever, and a growing band of moderates will fill the swing-vote role that Republicans used to play, especially when the left-leaning leadership needs a two-thirds majority to pass direct tax increases and constitutional changes.

The deadline for filing new bills for the next state legislative session is a week away, so we will soon see how restrained the Democrats will be. Yet a look at the background of these moderate lawmakers shouldn’t ease high-earners’ concern about rising tax bills in California.

For instance, Henry Perea, a Fresno Democrat who leads the Assembly Moderate Caucus, has written a bill to increase or extend $2.3 billion in automotive-related fees. This is one of the Democratic majority’s first big maneuvers for the year, with committee hearings expedited.

Anything is "disputable". Whether that dispute is a rational, intelligent, VALID, dispute is the real issue.

Creationism as a dispute for evolution is well recognized as invalid under peer scrutinized scientific evaluation.

Obama Golfs With Tiger Woods (Update: Press Blocked)
2:14 PM, Feb 17, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER

President Barack Obama, who is on a weekend getaway in Florida this weekend, hit the links with Tiger Woods today, the White House reveals.

"The President played golf today with USTR Ron Kirk, Jim Crane and Tiger Woods," deputy press secretary Josh Earnest says in a statement.

It's the first time Obama and Woods have gone golfing together. "President Barack Obama had an intimidating partner for a round of golf on Sunday - Tiger Woods, the world's No. 2 ranked player, according to a report," Reuters reports.

The president is vacationing by himself this weekend. The rest of his family, Michelle Obama and the two Obama daughters, are in Colorado on their own vacation.

You're cherry picking. Are there parts of evolution theory that are not proven yet? Sure, but as a whole, it is accepted as scientific fact, creationism is not considered in the least as a rational, intelligent, or valid dispute against evolution which is one of the most empirically and mathematically tested and proved "theories" of modern science.

I answered for Jack, because I know that he is not around and may not be for sometime to the extent your post may be buried before he returns. My problems with you have to do with obvious lies and a bad attitude about minorities, which contrary to your contentions, were spelled out as you went about the business of discussing promotions and your "skills". I'm surely not the only one who felt a little nauseous reading your posts about that and how you refused to yield ground to advance a minority - presumably on some utopian principle of "best qualified" when everybody really does understand the subjective nature of such promotions.

I'd bet that you never promoted a minority (assuming you ever had any supervisory job in the first place), and that is why your superiors thought you should reconsider and make your track record less obnoxious than it probably was at the time. In brief, you were probably an embarrassment to the objectives of equal opportunity. I'm big on that.(See my profile for further details.) I'm not intending to intimidate you. Rather, I'd just like to hold a mirror up to your sad sack for you to take a good look. Am I abrupt? Yep. I reject social conservatives who want to impose their values on everybody else. I absolutely understand fiscal conservatives, and I appreciate moderates from both sides of the aisle. I don't like white folks who think the world revolves around white folks. It's a d*mned big world and we're just a part of it, not the Zenith of existence. I have no desire to be hated by any other race or ethnicity for something so superficial and unimportant, and I extend the same courtesy I want to be extended to me. Bigoted white folks embarrass me.

There is no contradiction inherent between evolution and Christianity unless you subscribe only to the literal. We long ago got over literal interpretations where they were clearly allegorical interpretations to be put in context (metaphors). Those who refuse to acknowledge that are stuck on the literal 7 days and 7 nights story.

Middle class remains stuck

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34227_162-5756974...

.....According to Saez, during the recovery from the Great Recession, which started in mid-2009, "real income per family grew modestly by 1.7% but the gains were very uneven. Top 1% incomes grew by 11.2% while bottom 99% incomes shrunk by 0.4%. Hence, the top 1% captured 121% of the income gains in the first two years of the recovery." The trend is likely to continue and income disparity will probably grow in 2012 and 2013. No wonder consumer sentiment indicators remain stuck at low levels. Retirement plan growth aside, a two-decade trend is tough to absorb for Americans who still have a long way to go before the effects of the Great Recession dissipate.(cont.)

Many immigration laws have changed since 1778.
My spouse was simply asked if he/she wanted to renounce their current Citizenship and the answer was "No". The oath was preformed on public with about 200 or so taking it. At no point in the oath was the part about renouncing citizenship mentioned. It wouldn't have mattered anyway as dozens of them couldn't speak English and had no idea what words they were (trying) to repeat as an oath. All papers are legal and there has been no fraud involved. My child was born a citizen of both countries.
Kick and scream all you want but you wouldn't change those facts.
One pertinent fact, Obama was born a citizen of his father's nation.
The second pertinent fact, Obama has never been naturalized.
The third pertinent fact, Obama is still a citizen of his father's nation.
The forth pertinent fact, Obama is an alien and not eligible to be POTUS.
