Hey Colin, okay lock and load, your intelligent, lighten up man, Over 4000 families, who made 1,000,000, paid 0 tax last year, 14000 families who made 500,000 last year paid 0 fed tax, let's stick with fed tax, and not add in state, local sales tax, estate tax etc. A person making $10 million or more (Romney) pays 50% less than I do, hey man, that's not fair, your okay with that, I think they should pay their fair share, if they raised the taxes on the wealthy just 5% and closed the loop holes, we could send 500,000 students to college. I don't rely on others, but I like to lend a helping hand when I can, not everyone's fortunate, poor, needy, elderly, veterans, wounded vets, people with learning and physical disablities and so on. By the way, I've made something of myself. I live up north and own only one home and am content.BB

Weekly Prayer Update: October 4, 2012

Posted on Oct 03, 2012.

As we pray for the Lord to guide us in choosing godly leadership for our land, may this video on the impact of prayer in determining the future of a nation be an encouragement to you. 

 

You put your money where your heart is....this is where Obama's heart is.

Not with YOUR appendage!!

Oh, I see, Daniel shouldn't children, maybe he had to cut corners because of the Bush administration, he put us at the edge of a depression. BB

It is called inflation. We technically havent given anymore money of value, just enough to cover inflation.

You haven't PAID for anything in years.  Only passed on some debt.  UN likes to have more debt to pass along, and they can have it as soon as WE get REAL MONEY.  Hook 'em up with the fed.  After we get REAL money.

I sure would like to know what financial benefits this country's politicians are receiving that they don't remove us from the worthless United Nations?  There is always a money trail somewhere?

We need to kick the U.N. out of America

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
