Justice Department to give married
same-sex couples equal protection

Washington Post, by Sari Horwitz

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/9/2014 12:41:17 AM

The Justice Department on Monday will instruct all of its employees across the country, for the first time, to give lawful same-sex marriages sweeping equal protection under the law in every program it administers, from courthouse proceedings to prison visits to the compensation of surviving spouses of public safety officers. In a new policy memo, the department will spell out the rights of same-sex couples, including the right to decline to give testimony that might incriminate their spouses, even if their marriages are not recognized in the state where the couple lives. Under the Justice Department policy, federal inmates in

Comments:
It seems the "equal" protection is that under 0bamacare, he´s going to deny their claims for drugs to combat AIDS. Like the King Henry VIII of the Church of England, he will grant them "marriage" rights. Wonder what Pope Francis will say to him when 0bama visits him soon.

And that Oath of Office to faithfully Defend the Constitution and faithfully execute the laws, like DOMA, was just one more Obama LIE.
If you like your laws, you can keep your laws.

I am SO SICK of this phoney claim that homos do not have "equal rights"...they have EXACTLY the same rights as everyone else!!..That is, they can marry ANYONE OF THE OPPOSITE SEX...Same right as you and I have.

What they want is ADDITIONAL rights...and to do this they want to re-define the conventional and legal entity known as "Marriage". ( In your face, heteros!..., is what this is all really about)

So (and I know they hate this argument because it shows the folly of their "demand")...can I re-define "marriage " in order to marry my sister ...?? ... aunt ...?? ...cat??...it´s the same argument ... "marriage " as ,sane people know it, has to be discarded to accommodate those who want to legally bully the rest of us into accepting their lifestyle choice.

I totally agree, #9, these people don´t want EQUAL rights, they want to be treated better than the rest of us conventional people. The demands will never stop because they are SPECIAL.

Next thing you know they will be demanding compensation because the children are denied all of the benefits that only a male and a female parent can provide.

Just what else is the Justice Department going to give away? What new thing will they decide requires a decree? No matter what they want you to believe, this is a slippery slope. Who will dare reject the idea of bigamy? After all, if they love each other, why should they not be able to marry. If that is the premise, there is no end to the redefining of marriage.

I was watching the Olympics the other night; watching as one of United States Olympians won gold. I was not excited about it like I use to be. I also noticed I didn´t care if other countries won metals or not. I didn´t like the way I felt but couldn´t figure out why; why the apathy.
Then it dawned on me that I no longer feel like a part of the United State. My Country is not the same country I grew up in. My Country has changed for the worse. My Country has moved away from me and doesn´t like my type anymore. I no longer feel that I belong to My Country.
Because I am a Conservative Christian, My Country now accuses me of being a bigot, judgmental, a racist, a homophobic hate monger and a hater of women´s rights and minority rights. My Country no longer cares what I think and want´s me to either change or shut up. I use to be in the majority, now I am in the minority. Christianity use to be the norm, now it´s the exception. My Country use to believe our rights came from a Higher Power, God, that everyone recognized and feared, but now there is no God and we are all gods... with fewer rights.
People use to be judged by right and wrong, now there is no right or wrong and judgment is taboo; we all need to be tolerant of everyone and everything. I didn´t change, My Country changed; and not for the better.
Makes me sick! But then Jesus said that if they hated Him, they will hate His followers.

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards

Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer."

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!) She then promptly made the account private and insisted it was all a joke — “I’m so stupid, I’m scared,” she wrote at one point —

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country.

Sioux Falls, S.D. - A man with a history of mental illness was sentenced to death by a jury on Monday for killing a South Dakota hospice nurse as part of a plot to assassinate President Barack Obama. James McVay had pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a murder charge in 2012 in the stabbing death of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein. The Sioux Falls jury chose the death penalty, though jurors could have sentenced him to life in prison without parole. McVay, 43, said he killed Schein and stole her car as part of his plan to drive to Washington and kill the president. Authorities said McVay walked away from a minimum-security prison

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
