Gay U.S. Youths Kidnapped, Tormented and Tortured -- by Christian Evangelicals

This is just one example of the sickness and perversion that has manifested itself in the Christain Evangelical community because a segment of our society that has historically been kept supressed by them has dared to challenge their moral authority.

The Repub governor strategy of not expanding Medicaid and starting state exchanges may have a big payoff.

HOBBY LOBBY is the PERFECT Democratic Wedge Issue in 2014 and 2016

Everyone HATES the HOBBY LOBBY decision.

Women, regardless of the political party, HATE it for the effect that i has on them.   Men who have Moms, or wives, or a daughters HATE it because of the effect that it has on the women that they love.  LGBTQ people HATE it because of the effect that it will have on them, if the Court extends the logic of the case to the flood of new cases claiming that HOBBY LOBBY gives them the right to discriminate against gays because of a "sincerely held legal belief." 

SCOTUS has gone ROGUE . . . it's time for "Torches and Pitchforks"

Thom is right. This Supreme Court IS the most radical group of judicial extremists to ever sit on the SCOTUS bench. 

Since 2008, it has been on a tear, legislating from the bench, finding rights that never existed, and which are being used to the detriment of THE PEOPLE, and the destruction of our democracy.

In Heller (2008) SCOTUS - at the urging of the NRA - ignored 200(+) years of legal precedent to "find" an individual right to keep and bear arms under the 2nd Amendment.

Here's one for Zenzoe and others to argue about. This shows the darkside of surrogacy. Are you going to end up with a surrogate baby being an orphan?

SCOTUS Gets Wierder Still

Apparently the Supreme Court has now gone so far as to give credence to the argument that merely requiring that a nonprofit certify that it has a religious objection to providing birth control through a health insurance plan may be a violation of its religious freedom for the fact that the certification itself makes it complicit in having someone else provide birth control to employees.  Huh?  Believe it or not the Court enjoined HHS from requiring that nonprofit religious organization fill out one of their (HHS) forms in order to claim

Damn It Dems... JUST SAY IT!!!!

Sometimes in electoral politics debating the fine points of a policy... or even a policy itself, is a trap. Sometimes in electoral politics a party has to paint in broad strokes. And this is something the Dems refuse, or just can't seem to do well. While the Right has no problems making false and misleading characterizations of Dems, painting their motives in the worst light... the Dems are too cowardly to even provide true characterizations of the Right's motives.
