Re: “Catholic Bishops Vote to Revise Rules for Health Care Systems

Religion has no place in business, especially healthcare. It's especially bad because they also use it as an excuse for tax exemption which they abuse (see St. Luke's) to raise prices and extort the community.

Re: “Obama Plan: Shield Up to 5 Million Immigrants From Deportation

'Maggie Lin,' these 'illegals' do most of the agricultural labor and meat processing in this country. Who's going to do those jobs 'IF' it was even the least bit feasible to send them all back???!!! Don't say 'mericans' that are here and need jobs. They could be doing those jobs now if they had any 'cojones.'

Re: “Obama Plan: Shield Up to 5 Million Immigrants From Deportation

The MAJORITY of this country is against this.

But he wants to keep his "promise" to ILLEGAL ALIENS.

To Obama, ILLEGAL ALIENS are far more important than tax-paying law-abiding American citizens.

Already tens of millions unemployed.

Already tens of millions who can’t afford to live. We must now purchase health insurance we cannot afford and do not want or need (mine is $450/month… contrast this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda… or my $15/month renters insurance from Eagle… both private-enterprise!)

Border-hopping, law-breaking ILLEGAL ALIENS - that's what Obama wants as his legacy.

He will weaken the DIMicrat party for years if he tries this.

What a traitor - taking away jobs from US CITIZENS and giving them to ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Re: “Mormon Church Admits Founder Joseph Smith Had About 40 Wives

@ajax, but doesn't the Catholic Church do that as well? Or should I say, most religions. Religions evolve over the years to fit the prevailing culture.

Re: “Mormon Church Admits Founder Joseph Smith Had About 40 Wives

The Mormon church seems to have a history 'rich' with secrecy, hiding, and denial until it seems somehow politically correct, or in some other way advantageous to them as a group to 'fess up.'

Re: “Expectations High For Record Bids at New York Art Auctions

When the wealthy have more money than sense (and conscience) they will squander that wealth on all sorts of crap.

I find it hilarious Ted Cruz is trying to "expose an obstructionist president" when he was the"mastermind" behind the govt shutdown when he didn't get his way.

I'm not necessarily a fan of the XL, but don't think if the pipeline isn't built, that the oil won't get refined. It just won't happen on the gulf coast. It will most likely be transported on rail, and refined elsewhere.

I dont understand why Keystone is such a big deal to them. NA is already the leader in global energy production, and most of the oil passing through the Keystone is not for domestic use anyway.

Re: “U.S. Senate Control Could Be Mixed Blessing for GOP 2016 Hopefuls

Keystone is not important to conservative voters. It's important to lackeys you, obviously, and those who stand to reap billions.

Re: “Waiting on Jeb: Will Bush Run in 2016?

The next president will complete the job that only Jeb Bush can do.
No need for him to be in the spotlight or do much campaigning.
It’s already a done deal.

All that is happening in our days is the prelude to enormous changes but even before discussing in regard of the possible remedy one must be clear about how we came to this point recognizing both physiognomy and origin of the threat.

Since George H. Bush was CIA director, the US secret State agencies had played a double role to finally get to where we are today when every person is constantly monitored by NSA and other agencies not to report the information to the US Government but to feed with all data the embryo of a new superpower still kept hidden.

In brief, here is how it came to possess all means and to know everything of everyone.
In 1988 the ex CIA director was elected president although this was a US president like no other. His attention quickly turned to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from where he personally benefited immensely in exchange for the protection of those tyrants and their oil while in the United States instead the president observed his son, Neil, to be the author of the largest robbery of its time, the “Savings and Loans" scandal. After a few years, the next largest robbery in history was Enron that financed the electoral campaign for his other son, George. Once he also became president, the son plotted the most infamous attack on US soil, 9/11, to begin the widest monitoring program ever conceived and to consolidate for 8 years the interest of one family above all.

In our days, a group of Zionists, like a hidden parallel government, with George Bush still today at the head of secret services in the US, UK and Israel, is the destabilizing force behind most terror events and with classified information at disposal and a private army is plotting what now would seem unthinkable to many. The spokesman for this group in the US Congress is John Mc Cain who reports the given orders weighing on the US administration.

A World War and chaos everywhere have already been planned so that desperate people will soon invoke a New World Order without even knowing what that is.

When Jeb Bush will be the US president, the next War will be inevitable and also come by surprise.

There is one Solution

Re: “Attorney General: U.S. Recognizes Gay Marriage in Idaho, More States

MassResident..are you implying that gay and lesbian couples cannot or should not adopt children? Yeah, you are a monster, just like the rest of the reich-leaning religious boneheads.

The zealots in Idaho would rather bankrupt this state rather than accept that the LGBT community deserve the same rights as 'straight religious folk'.

Re: “Attorney General: U.S. Recognizes Gay Marriage in Idaho, More States

As to the argument from some that marriage must only be for procreation or that gay marriage bans assist in procreation, it’s been shredded over and over for the ridiculous claim it is. Gay people marrying gay people do not stop heterosexuals from marrying or procreating. Here’s just ‘one’ out of many multiple similar court rulings striking down a gay marriage ban:

“These arguments (from supporters of gay marriage bans) are not those of serious people. Though it seems almost unnecessary to explain, here are the reasons why.”
“Even assuming the state has a legitimate interest in promoting procreation, the court fails to see, and defendant never explains, how the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage has any effect whatsoever on procreation among heterosexual spouses. Excluding same-sex couples from marriage does not change the number of heterosexual couples who choose to get married, the number who choose to have children, or the number of children they have.”

“The state’s attempts to connect the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage to its interest in economic stability and in ‘ensuring humanity’s continued existence’ are at best illogical and even bewildering … The court can think of no other conceivable legitimate reason for Kentucky’s laws excluding same-sex couples from marriage.”
