Scalia blocks the aisle
against gay marriage

Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/13/2012 7:45:49 AM

The Supreme Court’s announcement Friday that it will take up gay marriage is more than a chance for the justices to recognize the emerging national consensus in support of gay rights. It is a chance for them to overrule the medieval views of Antonin Scalia. As if in response to the court’s announcement, the acid-tongued justice visited Princeton University late Monday and reiterated his opinion, expressed in a 2003 dissent, that a law banning sodomy is on par with laws forbidding bestiality or murder.

What national consensus in support of gay rights is Milbank talking about. Every time gay marriage is put to a vote it goes down in flames.

Eh Dana, Gays are not being denied their rights they have the same rights as straight people. If a gay man wants to marry a woman, he can. If a gay woman wants to marry a man, she can. If gays want to co-habitate with their own gender, they can. It just doesn´t qualify as "Marriage"! Marriage between men and women was designed by God, or if you wish, nature since the first humanoids stood upright. It has been the highly successful norm for literally hundreds of thousands of years. Now you expect society to throw that all away for an aberation that has its roots in the "counter culture" of the 60´s? I don´t think so.

if you watch the video of Scalia (Dana, are you listening?) he states that the "beastiality/murder" reference was a "reductio ad absurdum" argument, not that they were equal in some way. too bad the bright "college kids" didn´t get it. nor did Dana. love him or hate him, Scalia is a genius.

Unfortunately gay marriage WAS voter-approved: 4 times out of 35 votes. So it´s "normalcy" that has had a consensus, but that consensus has been weakened.

One of the (many) bad things about pseudomarriage is that, once it´s approved, it´s hard to reverse. LAW TEACHES. In this case, law would teach a deformed "lesson" about sex and marriage. Now that "lesson" will be taught everywhere: from the law schools right down to the Kindergartens.

If you don´t want your kids/grandkids taught about hygienic battery-operated jiggler use and safe anal penetration --- if you don´t want them exposed to the "lesson" that religious beliefs are at best retarded and at worst criminally antisocial --- please get them out of public school now.

Home-schooling has gone from preferred to indispensable.

# 1 beat me to it. There is no national consensus. And the states that did accidentally vote in favor of it had a contorted version of the question so voters were easily duped into the wrong vote if they disagreed. No one cares about this and whats the big deal of gay marriage? What do they gain? I´ve yet to figure it out.

#5. What they hope to gain is acceptance, to go against the religious teachings of numerous religions.
If they win, government will force military chaplains to perform ceremonies against their religious beliefs, and Pastors will be arrested for refusing.

Hate crime! Hate crime! Hate crime! Dana commits the most common of liberal disses. Time hate. Yes, Why is Scalia wrong? Because his views are "medieval." If an idea is old, it is wrong, wrong, wrong. And if it comes from the time of Church prevelance it is positively evil! You know, like Neanderthal.

Marriage is between a man and a woman, simple as that. The only reason we have to now define it by law is because sick F´n people want to re-define marriage. Here is my solution as to if being gay is "normal and genetic", put a fence around California and one right down the middle. Put the gay men on one side and the lesbians on the other, lock them all in and see how long their "cuture" lasts? Me thinks only that generation! Simple fact twobays or two girls can´t make baby, so conclusion is- not natural or normal, not genetic!!!!

Scalia is simply confirming that law is more important than a claim of national consensus. Law is not to be a popularity contest. If we truly had a national consensus, we could easily make the law reflect that fact.

The law must come first. Frankly I care more about rule of law than I do about gay marriage one way or the other.

If there was a national consensus in favor of gay marriage, it would be legal in more than a handful of states. All of this is just publicity intended to make the Supreme Court think that a ruling against gay marriage will be unpopular and damage the image of the Court. We see how well that kind of reasoning worked out in Roe v. Wade. Justice Roberts wanted Obamacare left to the democratic process. Will he use the same reasoning for gay marriage? And if DOMA is struck down--forcing the Federal government to recognize a Canadian gay marriage--will the Feds also have to recognize polygamous marriages in Muslim countries?

If I were very wealthy, I believe I would push for homosexual marriage. With the unlimited marital deduction for gifts and bequests, you could pass virtually every estate in the country tax free by having your surviving spouse marry someone half his/her age and then avoid the estate tax altogether. Of course you can do that now, but then you take the chance you wind up with an Anna Nicole Smith situation where the surviving spouse is just a crack whore.

I know petitions.whitehouse.gov may not be the most popular website with many of the poster here, but there has been a petition for 0bama to approve "polyamorous relationships" I guess by Executive Order. It goes on to describe "polyamorous" as a relationship of one woman with multiple men OR one man with multiple women, but if it includes two or more men with two or more women, I must have missed it.

So, they haven´t really settled gay marriage, and they already want more!

I can´t think of a worse situation, imagine the number of in-laws that would involve!

Mother of Five: Obamacare
Jeopardizing My Family’s Financial Future
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap. Wendt initially decided to discuss her plight in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, which has chronicled the negative impact of Obamacare on

WASHINGTON — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba´s communist government. McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Employers Say Obamacare Will Cost

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Democratic lawmakers and campaign finance reform advocates quickly bashed Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision to strike down total limits on individual campaign contributions, warning of future corruption in elections. Meanwhile, Republicans largely cheered the ruling from the narrowly divided court, which found it unconstitutional to impose caps on the aggregate amounts that one person can donate to campaigns, parties and political action committees. Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

Yesterday President Obama claimed that “more than 3 million young adults… have gained insurance under this law by staying on their family’s plan.” Indeed, the number of young people who can now stay on their parents’ insurance plans until age 26 — the so-called “slacker mandate” — is one of the most oft-repeated Obamacare statistics. The Los Angeles Times used it in a recent article to claim that because of Obamacare “at least 9.5 million previously uninsured people have gained coverage.” That included not only the 3.1 million young adults who are covered by their parents’ plans but also about 2

Twenty years ago it was the U.S. Postal Service that was the iconic example of what’s wrong with the federal government. The Post Office was big, bloated, and known for sketchy service. Making matters worse, the Post Office often appeared to be fighting off bankruptcy. Federal Express turned criticism of the Post Office into a major advertising campaign for its overnight delivery service. Today, the representative example of bad government is the Transportation Security Administration. TSA has a labor force of 65,000 employees. It has cost the American taxpayer about $75 billion. This includes more than $60 billion spent through 2012

Some Republican fat cats are trying to coax former Florida governor Jeb Bush — brother and son to two former presidents — into making a bid for the White House. Democrats have been less subtle. They’ve created a super PAC called Ready for Hillary, which is only slightly less obvious a gesture than constructing a giant neon sign reading “Run, Hillary, Run.” For obvious reasons, these developments have generated a lot of discussion about political dynasties in America. That’s understandable. After all, in a democratic republic, the prospect of dynasties should make everyone at least a little uncomfortable.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since.

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare.

Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
