Compiled by: ©2012 Conservative Majority Fund Obama’s Impeachable Offenses Exceeding Constitutional Bounds/High Crimes and Misdemeanors With no authority Obama is attempting to rule by decree. Executive orders have previously been used to direct the Executive Departments how to implement laws. Obama is using them to legislate, and that is in direct contravention to the separation of powers clearly outlined in the Constitution. He has appointed over 30 Czars These Czars are not confirmed; they are anointed, and none of them are accountable to anyone but the President. Even though Congress voted to defund his Czars, President Obama has said he will ignore that part of the Budget and keep them anyway. Twice Obama made recess appointments while Congress was still in session. For ignoring his obligation to enforce the laws of the land in the areas of Immigration and the Defense of Marriage Act. The Obama Administration incorrectly invoked Executive Privilege to support Attorney General Eric Holder in ...
As further proof of their hypocrisy and stupidity,the Republican controlled House passed House Rules.Some of the fine points are summarized below.Clearly they don't want any best practice nonsense reducing health care cost. Establishing the Rules of the House - Vote Passed (228-196, 5 Not Voting) After electing the Speaker, the next order of business in organizing the House is traditionally establishing the rules for that Congress. This is typically a prosaic piece of business, but there were several controversial items in the rules package this year. The resolution reauthorizes the House’s Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group to continue litigation defending the Defense of Marriage Act in the court system. It also authorizes the Oversight Committee to continue its civil action against Attorney General Eric Holder over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun walking scandal. The last controversial provision concerns the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a panel created b the 2010 health care o ...
"They made a law called the Defense of Marriage Act which Bill Clinton signed into law because it was the nineties and everything was ironic!"
Nationwide The proposed RFMA (Respect-for-Marriage Act) was introduced as H. 1116 into the House of Representatives, and as S. 598 into the Senate, both on 16 March 2011. The Senate held a hearingon 20 July 2011, and then the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-8 in favor of advancing the bill to the Senate floor, where it awaits 60 votes in order to avoid a Republican-led filibuster. The Republican-controlled House has neither held a hearing, nor advanced the bill to the House floor. As of 30 November 2012, the bill has 159 House sponsors, and 33 Senate sponsors. The House needs 59 more sponsors to reach 218, the minimum needed to pass. Nationwide On 28 June 2012, House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Adam Smith (D-WA) introduced into Congress H. 6046, the Military Spouses Equal Treatment Act of 2012 (MSET), which would expand the definition of “spouse” in federal laws (U.S. Code, Titles 10, 32, 37, 38) to guarantee over 70 benefits and ensure fully equal pay, recog ...
The Homosexual Lobby is already preparing for the next phase of their assault. Desperate to consolidate power as quickly as they can, the Homosexual Lobby has called in favors owed them by the Democratic Caucus in the Senate. And they got their request. Senator Tammy Baldwin is being placed on key Senate Committees in order to ensure the advance of the Homosexual Agenda. Baldwin is the first homosexual to serve in the U.S. Senate and is the heir-apparent to Barney Frank and his radical program. Public Advocate recently caused some controversy by shining a spotlight on Baldwin and her long track record of radical homosexual policies. This track record includes: - Introducing the Offense of Marriage Act to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and force homosexual “marriage” on all fifty states. - Supporting the Thought Control Act, which has been used to punish innocent Americans who dare to “disagree” with the Homosexual Agenda. - Sponsoring the *** Bill of Special Rights which if passed would create ...
Priorities: 67 No Votes for Sandy Relief. 1 No Vote for DOMA. Posted on 01/04/2013 at 7:00 pm by JM Ashby 67 Republicans voted against relief for Hurricane Sandy victims today, but only 1 single Republican voted against additional funding for the hopeless legal defense of DOMA. via ThinkProgress On a 228-196 vote, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives adopted a rules package for the 113th Congress that explicitly authorizes the House’s legal arm to spend taxpayer dollars to defend the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). They embraced this unnecessary spending minutes after newly re-elected Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) warned that the rising national debt was an “anchor” weighing down the American Dream. At the behest of John Boehner and Eric Cantor, former Solicitor General Paul Clement will continue preparing to face the Supreme Court again. Clement previously tried, and failed, to defeat Obamacare on behalf of the National Federation of Independent Busine ...
NYE at Phoenix - Auckland, NZ Jan 2013 Supreme Court ruling on Defense of Marriage Act could allow *** binational couples to stay in U.S. BY STEVE ROTHAUS / Miami Herald / Jan 4, 2013 An upcoming Supreme Court decision on whether an old woman must pay inheritance tax on her late wife's estate could also determine whether Coral Gables newlyweds Daniel Zavala and Yohandel Ruiz get to stay together in the United States. Zavala and Ruiz, along with thousands of other *** and *** binational couples, face separation because of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing legally married same-sex spouses. "I should not have to leave the country to be with the person I love," said Cuban-born Ruiz, an American citizen who grew up in Hialeah. "I should be able to sponsor my husband, Daniel, to stay in the country." Zavala, now 27, visited Miami from Mexico about two years ago on a tourist visa. He met Ruiz, now 37, one night in Score nightclub on Lincoln Road in Sout ...
Rep. Steven Palazzo voted against providing funding of federal aid to victims of Sandy. Rep. Steven Palazzo voted in favor of a House rules package which continued funding of the legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a legal defense which (after spending millions of taxpayer dollars) has suffered 6 defeats and has been determined to have little chance of being found constitutional.

1/5/2013 The Most Corrupt Leader Ever in American History David L Lamon This is what the majority of Americans reelected...He said he would not pay much attention to it. Just like the Defense of Marriage Act, Immigration Laws now Obama says he will not pay any attention to the provision in the National Defense Authorization Act that protects chaplains from violating their moral conscious by facilitating *** marriage in the military of which Obama wants to see happen. This is how he has established his rule from day one, don't pay any attention the law and forget the fact I Obama is the chief law enforcement officer of the land, I will do what I want and I persecute anyone that opposes me. This statement above is enough to impeach him but I know that will not happen because that thinking prevails in the Senate as well. Here is what happens when the leadership of our country disregards the law, we become a lawless society and then total ruin. He has done this over and over by presidential directive ...
Great piece by Leah Israel: So the Great Community Organizer got reelected for another four years. Here are a few of my thoughts and predictions about what that means to the people of the US. 1) Obama will now use his reelection as a mandate to continue grabbing federal power from an ineffective Congress and supporting a liberalized court system. Look for him to make executive mandates to weaken immigration laws, allowing for a de facto amnesty of illegal Mexican immigrants. Obama will also help spread the homosexual dogma of same sex marriage by destroying the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), thus clearing the way for a national overthrow of state marriage laws and constitutional amendments. With federal support, *** activists will then have a clear shot at removing the 1st Amendment protections of religion. Also look for Obama to take on the 2nd Amendment, using executive power to restrict gun and ammunition sales. Note that these will all be done without the benefit of existing law, since the new Congre ...

*** Marriage At Supreme Court: Will Military Couples Get More Benefits? Same-sex military couples are not eligible for many benefits that heterosexual married couples in the military receive, including housing and medical care. But the Supreme Court could redefine the federal status of *** marriage next year. By Anna Mulrine, Staff writer Washington--When Chief Warrant Officer Charlie Morgan returned from a year-long deployment to Kuwait with the New Hampshire National Guard in 2010, her doctor didn’t have good news. The breast cancer thought to be in remission, the physician said, had returned, and the diagnosis was terminal. That’s when Morgan began a new battle – to make sure her wife and their daughter receive the same survivor benefits that would go to any other married couple with children. The US Supreme Court's decision to take up the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) could have a considerable impact on the benefits of same-sex spouses of service members, who were largely invisible to the milit ...
Defense of Marriage Act prevents a citizen from sponsoring a same-sex spouse for legal residency.
If you can't respect the first amendment of the United States Constitution, I refuse to respect your interpretation of the second amendment. The first ten words of the first amendment read "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..." The Defense of Marriage Act was a law passed respecting the religious view that only one man and one woman should be allowed to marry. This is clearly unconstitutional. Yet you are perfectly alright with it. The second amendment reads "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." A well regulated Militia does not mean you and your buddies. To me, it means well-trained and for the purpose of the defense of themselves and others. The several militias of the various localities of the United States officially became a federally funded organization known as the National Guard under the Militia Act of 1903. However, several survivalists take the part betw ...

Congrats, same-sex spouses: Here's your tax bill $$$ Same-sex couples in Washington state rushed giddily to the courthouse earlier this month after Washington became one of three states where voters approved laws giving them the legal right to marry. Those newlyweds will probably be less excited the first time they get to file their tax returns together. The gap between state laws that recognize same-sex marriage, and federal laws that don’t, makes tax season complicated at best, and costly at worst, for same-sex spouses. “It’s certainly a big headache for people. I’ve literally seen them reduced to tears,” said M.V. Lee Badgett, research director of the Williams Institute for Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Supreme Court’s decision to hear cases related to same-sex marriage could clarify the confusion if the court ends up striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, a national law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. That ...

Pastor In Prison For Marrying Two Wives 38-year-old Pastor Julius Bamidele was on Thursday remanded in prison custody by an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly contracting an unlawful marriage with another woman while still married. It was revealed to the court that Bamidele was married to his present wife, Mrs Yinka Bamidele, but however got married to another woman, Bukola Dahunsi, while still married to Yinka. “That you, Julius Bamidele ‘m’, being married to former Miss Yinka Ibigbami now Yinka Bamidele (Mrs) under the Marriage Act on Sept.11, 2004, at Ado-Ekiti Local Government Registry, in Ado-Ekiti Magisterial District. “That you, Bamidele did marry one Bukola Dahunsi while Yinka Bamidele (Mrs) is still living and marriage not dissolved and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 370 of the Criminal Code Cap C16 Laws of Ekiti State, 2012,” the charge sheet read. The accused pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge. Magistrate Simeon Ojo ordered that the accus ...
After enacting a draconian Citizenship Act in 1985 to reduce the Lhotshampa population, the government simultaneously introduced the new Marriage Act which had an even larger content of discrimination against Lhotshampa women and their children. The Act declared all foreign wives of the Bhutanese citizens as non-citizens, even though most of them were granted citizenship under previous citizenship laws. In contravention of all international norms and civilised behaviour, the Royal Government denied several thousand children (born out of marriages between Lhotshampa husbands and Nepali speaking wives from Nepal or India) of their right to nationality. They were evicted along with their parents. This Act was only enforced against the Lhotshampas. The Marriage Act was enacted in 1980 and was forcefully implemented in 1988 to especially target the wives of Lhotshampas. This discriminatory law imposes a number of denial of benefits to those who married non-Bhutanese wives. The Lhotshampas who marrie ...

Now the Supreme Court has decided to hear arguments on two cases regarding same-sex marriage — one on California’s Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage, and another on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which denies federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples. Please send good energy and prayers to each of the Justices, that they may choose an end to discrimination.

I've been getting a lot of questions on this, so I thought I'd explain the matter fully: Q: I thought you and Diamanda Hagan got married? Why don't you live together? A: I live in the US, in the state of MD and Hagan lives in Northern Ireland, UK. Even though we were legally married in Washington, DC and our marriage is legally recognized in MD as of 1/1/13, there is a federal law (the Defense of Marriage Act, DOMA) that prevents federal recognition of a state-sanctioned same-sex marriage. That means I cannot file federal income tax as a married person and that the Dept. of Immigration will not grant a spousal visa to her so she can legally live and work in the US. The UK, however *will* honor our marriage and will grant me a spousal visa, however, I need to meet the financial requirements of a yearly income of 18,000 pounds ($30,000 USD) or a savings of 64,000 pounds ($103,000 USD). So, until DOMA is struck and the federal government grants recognition of our marriage, or until I can either find a compan ...

I have heard people say over and over again that there is NOTHING Obama can personally do about marijuana. This is incorrect. Here's one (of many) sourceson this issue, from the Rolling Stone article Obama's Pot Problem: "Obama, the former constitutional-law professor, has relied on the expansive powers of the chief executive when it serves him politically – providing amnesty to a generation of Dream Act immigrants, or refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. A one-time pothead who gave a shout-out to his dealer in his high school yearbook, Obama could single-handedly end the insanity of marijuana being treated like heroin under the Controlled Substances Act with nothing more than an executive order."

DE-CRIMINALISING BIGAMY IN LAGOS | Print | E-mail Thursday, 12 January 2012 THE Lagos State House of Assembly is alleged to have amended the Lagos State Criminal Code and discretely removed bigamy from the statutes. By implication, bigamy is no longer a criminal offence in Lagos State. That is, if a man or woman who is married under the Marriage Act contracts another marriage while the extant one subsists, he or she no longer risks being jailed for seven years as would have been the case under the old Criminal Code of Lagos State Cap 17, section 370. Also by implication, within the jurisdiction of Lagos State, sections 33(1), 27 and 39 of the Marriage Act which is a Federal law, which specifies a valid marriage, defines bigamy and specifies sanction respectively, have become null and void. THE state’s chief law officer, Adeola Ipaye, reportedly stated that the state had to remove bigamy from its statutes because it found out that there was no need to criminalise the offence. But a few questions may be a ...
With DOMA [The Defense of Marriage Act] on the books state laws allowing same-sex marriage are of limited use.

University of Virginia Political Scientist, Larry Sabato, describing Romney: “He was essentially a cyborg designed to win the presidency, and when he failed he was placed in the disposal bin.” I'm just really hoping that Obama doesn't try to put Romney is his administration.

GOD is on HIS THRONE! No matter who is in the White House. Unlike many of us, God is not wriggling His hands this morning in despair. Maybe He is reminding us, the solution is not top down. But grassroots. Maybe He’s repeating, “Make Disciples!” (Matthew 28:19-20). Testify to them of Christ who died for their sins and arose. Baptize them into the life of a local church. Teach them My Word. That is our only hope as a nation anyway. Maybe He is reassuring us, “Put not your confidence in man, but in the God who runs the Universe, who is Almighty, and who still works all things together for good to them that love Him.” Why did America vote in a President who is against the sanctity of unborn babies, DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) that declares marriage between a man and a woman, and religious liberty with his contraception mandate? Because America is shifting morally and spiritually. Let me put it bluntly, America is becoming more secular. Albert Mohler identifies the problem: “Recent studies have ...

On his first day in office, Obama closed Club Gitmo. Four years later, despite Obama, it’s still open. During those years, we have endured four years of flagrant overspending that has produced trillion-dollar budget deficits as far as the eye can see. Spending on a level that no other American President could have or would have gotten away with. Before he was elected, Obama promised a war on American energy producers, particularly coal. He kept that promise. We’ve endured a four-year assault on coal, oil, and natural gas producers, while this Regime gambled away $80 billion on “green” energy scams. The Obama Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, has been openly hostile to the law.

Where Are You Christians? Your vote November 6th will determine the ability for all Americans to possess religious freedom in the United States. The first Amendment right protecting freedom of speech and religious liberty may be taken away by this administration. Our forefathers died fighting to grant us such precious liberties, and now it’s our turn to defend them. Christians won’t be taking a gun onto this battlefield, but rather a list of candidates who support pro-family, prolife, and religious freedom. We need every Christian to be a soldier in this army because this is a war against God. Christians derived their name from being “Christ-like,” and obedient to His teachings, but are we? Have we Christians been asleep as the evil one, satan, has crept into our culture, our minds? Instead of standing apart from this world, we have been drawn into its culture and have not behaved Christ-like.

For example, we have seen the arguments for it transform from *** being able to visit your partner in the hospital, to the establishment of the "Everything but Marriage" Act (in the State of WA), to civil unions and now for the very RIGHT to be married. ALL, and I do me ALL the so called "rights" afforded to heterosexuals, are there for *** as well via power of attorney and civil union legislation. But that’s not enough. It has to be called marriage. Why? I believe it’s because it’s not the “right” *** truly seek but acceptance for the .. ...
ON LGBT ISSUES: ROMNEY VS. OBAMA Mitt Romney is no fan of LGBT equality. Let’s take a minute right now to look at a few reasons why. • Romney opposes not only Marriage Equality but also civil unions for *** people. In fact, he signed a pledge written by the homophobic National Organization for Marriage (NOW) to add a federal amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning Marriage Equality nationwide. And most recently, this video surfaced. • Romney does not believe that the federal government should protect *** people in the workplace. He opposes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). That means he thinks it should be legally OK for your boss to fire you just for being *** bisexual, questioning -- anything other than straight. • Romney supported the U.S. Military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. • Part of the pledge that Romney signed for NOW stipulated that, if elected, he would establish a McCarthy-style “presidential commission” to investigate and possibly prosecute mem ...
What gets me is when you act like your marriage is "all good in the hood" 😒
In Archbishop Dolan's public letter to President Obama dated September 20, 2011, referring to Obama's refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, Archbishop Dolan said the following, "The Administration's failure to change course on this matter will... precipitate a national conflict between Church and State of enormous proportions and to the detriment of both institutions." When will the national conflict begin? We now have the violation of freedom of religion issue to add to the fire. Can one be a Catholic and vote for political candidates who are attempting to deny the Chruch freedom of religion?
On the fence about who you should vote for ? We'll take a look at some Issues and you make the call!!

I hate when girls act like their relationship is a marriage like nah chill you guys are 18 you're not his wife so just stop it
Dear Fellow Christians, Imagine two types of world. 1.In one, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan win on Tuesday, and immediately repeal the Health and Human Services mandate that requires all employers to provide contraception and abortifacients, stop the funding for abortion in Obamacare, and protect the Defense of Marriage Act. 2.In the other, Barack Obama and Joe Biden win re-election and continue to use our tax dollars to fund abortions, officially redefine marriage, and escalate their assault on churches, religious institutions and our cherished freedoms. One of these worlds will soon be our reality and the only choice we have is how we deal with it. The pillars of Christian teachings are rooted in the sanctity of life, respect of the family, and our most cherished freedom of religion and conscience. To turn our back on these in the voting booth is to become morally complicit with intrinsic evils. The battle to defend these pillars of our faith does not end on November 6. It does not matter who is in the Whit ...
Marriage is a relationship where both husband and wife act like complete *** together.
The Clandestine Marriage Act of 1753, also known as Lord Hardwicke's Act, marked the beginning of state involvement in marriage
I want to tell you what how discrimation looks lke. I carry my partner on my health insurance. Because of the Defence of Marriage Act, the federal government does not recognize my legal marriage in my state. This benefit ,is not allowed pre tax dollars, and is considered income to me . Therefore I pay more taxes. 4 courts have determined the DOMA to be unconstitutional. The 14th amandment to our Constitution guarentees equal rights to all .Mitt Romney and his party will not support the overturning of this ACT which discriminates against me and any other individual in a legal marriage in their state. Please stand up to discrimiation when you VOTE on Tuesday.
We all know a guy who is against *** marriage but he definitely act like he's *** named Jack
Good Q. I think if the Supreme Court overturns the Defense of Marriage Act, social conservatives will try.
RESEARCH: For a church to validly carry out a wedding, then it must be authorised to do so according to the Marriage Act. Some born again churches have a licence to carry out church weddings, however, most born again churches do not have such licences.
Marriage.God's intention is gender equality. You are both equal partners in your marriage.act like it, always and in everything.
Obama keeps saying that when you vote for him at least one knows where he stands unlike Romney who keeps changing his position, which is true, but I guess you forgot Mr. President that four years ago you wnated to close Guantanomo, you supported the Marriage Act, and wanted to decrease the number of abortions but now you are againt it all. So, no, I will not know what you stand for.

[?] Subscribe To This Site Muslim Marriage Quotes on Love and Sex (5) Custom Search A Hadith quotes the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that marriage is part of his way of life. He himself married for a number of times and regarded celibacy as unnatural and against the will of God. Attributed sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) are scattered in the collection books of Ahadiths. There is no guarantee that these attributions are words of the Prophet.

Congratulations to Shane Rattenbury and ACT Labor for their renewed commitment to Marriage Equality
"Love has been positively described as a “Trojan horse libertarian” by some conservative bloggers for her positions on homeschooling, federal control of land, and other issues. Liberals have attacked her for her backing entitlement reform and the privatization of student loans. Libertarians should enjoy Love’s serious talk about eliminating the federal Department of Education and Department of Energy. Love does not support Marriage Equality but opposes the Defense of Marriage Act on the grounds that the federal government has no business in dictating how states should handle marriage."
If you love your spouse, act like it!

Bad Facts about Obama’s Prospects by Phyllis Schlafly on September 28, 2012 Although the polls show the presidential campaigns neck and neck, the facts continue to look negative for Barack Obama. Two-thirds of the American people say they believe the United States is going in the wrong direction, and changing the occupant of the White House is the only way to reverse course. Unemployment remains the prime political issue, but the Democrats still allow a tsunami of legal and illegal immigrants to take jobs away from U.S. citizens. Obama’s Jobs Czar, Jeffrey Immelt, is busy creating jobs in Communist China instead of in the U.S.A. Obama’s wild spending is putting an albatross around the necks of our children and grandchildren. Americans have enough personal debt, and they don’t want their kids to assume the burden of paying for Obama’s extravagances. Obama’s record makes clear that our future of constitutional government will be endangered if he has the opportunity to name the next two Supreme C ...
During a live interview today inside the White House, President Obama told MTV viewers that when it comes to same-sex marriage, it would be up to future generations of Americans to implement meaningful reform.
I approve this message! Thanks to Sebastian Daniel Chen and Simon Kerr for posting. Please consider... For those of you with family, friends and loved-ones who are *** consider for a moment this quote from playwright Doug Wright: "I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they're voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on *** rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say, "My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood." It's like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You're still complicit. You're still perpetuating anti *** legisla ...
If you are a Christian living in Minnesota, or you believe in the sanctity of marriage...PLEASE, PLEASE and PLEASE as you go out to vote, DO NOT forget to VOTE YES on the Marriage Act thingy. I do not have a problem with *** people BUT Marriage is a divine institution and it shouldn't be desecrated. If you leave it blank, it will be counted as a NO. Vote for the candidate of your choice but PLEASE don't treat this Marriage Act Amendment with frivolity or you would have to explain to your children someday why Mr X is married to Mr Y. It's time to STAND for what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent & praiseworthy. God is WATCHING you

I was taught that " the truth shall make you free". As I followed the Benghazi Coverup, I can't believed that we have a president that did not make a call to help our heroes when they asked three times for help and was told to stand down. For 8 long hours while the president and his people sat and watched in real time what was happening, Obama did nothing, gave no order. It led me to believe that he should not have been the commander in chief. He was more interested in protecting his political position, that TERRORISM is NO LONGER, BECAUSE BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!! Boy, was he dead wrong. I'm appalled and outraged at this president for doing nothing to protect our people, which is his duty as commander in chief. He doesn't want to answer any questions before the elections, but I predict the truth will eventually come out, and he will loose big time. Obama is the greatest hoax the US has ever produced since the history of the United States. He Promised Hope & Change. We certainly got change, a Unit ...
ALL I WANT TO DO IS COME BACK HOME I am, however unwilling to do so without the person I love. We have been trying now for nearly 4 years, but it often feels virtually impossible and sometimes makes me very sad. It makes me feel like I am living in forced exile and my country does not want me back because my partner of 8 years happens to be of the same sex. I still harbor hopes that the country that is my homeland and that I love, will one day honor our constitution and really embrace the fact that all of its citizens need to be treated equally in the eyes of the law. I am a veteran and served my country for 4 years. I am an older American that certainly could benefit from a close VA hospital. I have been retired for a few years and it is difficult to meet and handle my obligations in two places in these hard times. I get a little depressed when I think too much about it. I have had to learn to accept that currently my country really believes that I am a 2nd class citizen. Then, one day, for the ve ...
We're used to fighting for change outside the political arena, through grassroots organizing. But this Tuesday, too much is at stake for any of us to abstain. If we do not turn out one unified, progressive voice for support of President Obama and down ticket candidates, we will see the future we fight for slip further away: - Romney will defund Planned Parenthood, reinstate the Global Gag Rule, and will appoint Supreme Court justices to overturn Roe. - President Obama's DREAMers executive order will be revoked, cutting off hope for any additional college student DREAMers. - The Defense of Marriage Act won't be repealed. - And the wealthiest in this county will contribute less while supports for the impoverished are slashed. Are you ready to put away your dreams of progress over the next few years? I'm not.
Why I SUPPORT Gov. Romney for PRESIDENT. (VOTE) You Make your choice. Support a Leader who is 100% Pro- Business 100% Pro- Drilling 100% Support, Defense of Marriage Act (because marriage is between a man & women only) 100% Oppose Tax payer funding of Abortion. And 1,000,000% Pro-Life. (Make sure to VOTE)
As expected, the “first *** president” continues to hold a revolving position on same-sex marriage rather than themuch lauded “evolving” one.
The Defense of Marriage Act is offensive in its name. "Defending" something that is in no way being attacked by loving *** couples is misguided and has no legal backing. Shame that we won't give up isn't it?
Now, I understand having issues with Obama. But, stop to think of all the crap we haven't had to deal with in the last four years. Anybody remember Terri Schiavo? Obama isn't perfect, but he never turned the entire federal government into a Jesus-freak episode of 'House.' And he doesn't have an Attorney General like John Ashcroft, who once covered up a statue at the Justice Department because it was showing too much *** Like it was Janet Jackson. I'm just saying, last four years, no crises about boobies. No controversies about whether stem cells are actually tiny people. No Defense of Marriage Act. No Office of Faith-Based Initiatives. No peddling creationism at the national parks. Did you know that before Obama got in, the Smithsonian couldn't mention global warming as a possible reason the glaciers were shrinking, because heat melting ice was just a theory?
Everyone is allowed an opinion. If someone else's doesn't mix with yours, that doesn't mean you're more entitled to yours than they are. Just because something has been done one way for a long time does not mean it's the right or only way. "Traditionally," people were racist and sexist and got around in horse-drawn carriages. The fact that there is a "tradition" does not make the behavior right in the modern context. • The argument: The Bible speaks out against *** Since the authors of the Bible were inspired by God, then God must be opposed to homosexuality, and since marriages are done through God, there can be no same sex marriage. • The response: First, let's address the specific religious point: Actually, the Bible says little on the subject; the usual citations are from Leviticus and Romans; nothing about it is mentioned in the 10 Commandments, and Jesus is silent on the subject. Religious leaders have also spoken out against sex before marriage and contraception, implying that the only time s ...
As we face the upcoming election there has been much discuission and suspicion about each candidate's religious views. We need to be careful not to be distracted by those things. Each party's platform and prayerfully consider which one you can support.PRAY, AND VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE! Remember to not Vote is to Vote!
obama policies: zero interests to subsidize banks and real estate; repeatedly trying to reduce mortgages of people who bought houses they couldn't afford; officially and vocally stopped defending marriage act; promote special rights for *** groups... zero interest is particularly unfair to retired people and anyone who has worked hard to accumulate money and rely on the interests for rent and food. i want to see interest rates to go back to the normal 3 to 5% so that prices of properties in the NY area will come down to realistic levels. and i don't want any leader of the country to ever try reducing principal on mortgages of investment and speculation ever again.
Traditional Marriage Under Attack Several state Supreme Courts have declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. How will these decisions threaten traditional marriage?
Why President Obama Has Not Earned a Second Term I believe President Obama has not earned a second term. My reasons are briefly summarized below—I could write a lot more. I invite respectful discussion. By just about every measure, the American economy is doing worse now than when President Obama took office. The number of Americans living in poverty is up, there are fewer Americans working, more Americans are on food stamps than ever before and the rate of economic growth is decreasing, not increasing. These are simple facts. I know he inherited a tough situation, but leaders take responsibility, they do not dodge it. Instead, he continues to blame President Bush. I see no evidence that Mr. Obama has acted to improve things. Nor do I believe that he has any plans to do anything different during a second term. During the debates, he certainly did not articulate anything he would do differently in a second term. Why should he be given more time to continue the policies that have not helped? Ins ...
**Romney Vs Obama** Obama wants Obama Care, Same sex marriage, not to balance the budget, abortion on demand, tax payer funded abortion, mandated contraceptives by religous organizations and is against the defense of marriage act.

To all of my friends posting "I Like Romney" and "I Like Paul Ryan" message. Many of you are good, close and caring friends. For some, it surprises me. For others, not so much. I have held myself at bay over this, but have decided that perhaps you need to know why for me, this time, it is personal. The Republican Party has endorsed a platform supporting a constitutional amendment declaring same sex marriages unconstitutional. Already, the Defense of Marriage Act does not allow same sex couples to appreciate any of the over 1000 federal benefits and rights of marriage. Both Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney have endorsed this position. Now, perhaps you think, that's ok, we can have our beliefs and support them because of other issues. I simply ask you to consider the price of that decision on people you care for, like me. 1. There are more states than not where if my husband ends up in a hospital, I could be denied the right to sit by his side or even make decisions about his care. 2. There are more states than no ...

Here is my ultimate thought experiment on the "Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)." Although I am very much a follower of Jesus Christ as both God and Man, and believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of Scripture (this means I believe it is true in whole and in part, in the original manuscripts, according to original authorial intent), I am not actually advocating what I am about to say. This is a way to potentially magnify the DOMA arguments to see them more clearly. THOUGHT EXPERIMENT: Why don't we just cut to the chase and pass an amendment that dictates the Bible as God's inerrant Word, as the only representation of God's will and nature, and require everyone to do everything it says to do? * Would this approach clearly eliminate *** marriage? * Would everyone be forced to tithe and go to church? * Would fornication and adultery be illegal? * Is this what God intends? Is this the vision of the Family of God that He put forth in Scripture? * Is He after the heart or the appearance of obedience? Most i ...
Vol Dad's letter just sent to Chevron CEO John Watson: Dear Mr. Watson: As an Atlanta resident with a number of Chevron locations near my home, I have shopped at Chevron locations often. Having learned Chevron has made one of the largest donations to Speaker John Boehner's super PAC; I regret to inform you that I will no longer shop at Chevron. This is not about freedom to engage in the political process; or about denying anyone the ability to vote for a candidate. No, Mr. Watson, this is about Mr. Boehner's efforts to deny equal rights to LGBT Americans by defending the Defense of Marriage Act. As a tax paying American who is denied more than 1100 federal rights -- impacting my finances, retirement, health care and job security -- this is not a single issue - rather multiple issues. Your decision to fund Mr. Boehner’s anti-equality agenda must be met in the wallet. I hope in the future, you will see the error of your ways and prove you and Chevron respect the rights of every tax paying American. R ...

of the 27 Grievances against King George, 1776: HE HAS REFUSED HIS ASSENT TO LAWS, THE MOST WHOLESOME AND NECESSARY FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD. Recently when the US Court of Appeals upheld the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the Obama administration stated matter of factly, “We won’t enforce it.” This is a direct attack on the oldest institution known to man. Marriage predates government, the church, civil law, or anything else. Since then, Obama has made himself clear concerning *** marriage, stating he is for *** marriage and DOMA is wrong. DOMA is law, interestingly; one signed by Bill Clinton, a fellow Democrat. Whether Obama agrees with it or not, he has sworn under oath to uphold the law. By taking this position Obama is refusing to UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE United States (which he has sworn to do). DOMA is a scripture based law and Obama is taking the position that “I am larger than God. I don’t fear God, nor do I fear standing in opposition to Him or His law, and I w ...

My friend and former colleague Bob Kerrey has shown a lot of guts and grit in running once again for the United States Senate from Nebraska.

Determined to solve our country's toughest problems, determined to tell Nebraska voters the truth, and completely determined to win.
