Ending church marriages:

Ending church marriages: "Comments: [...] 12. Early New England puritans banned church  marriage ceremonies as a relic of Romanism. Government is the proper arbiter of earthly relationships. The government's main interest is to minimize later legal bickering over inheritance by registering marriages (and births). http://bit.ly/mUMrL0
"The process of publishing intended marriages and being open to objections enables the community to give consent (through silence generally). It is important to all that family, friends, and neighbors consent to the union and thereby consent to properly support that union and the children it produces. ibid. http://bit.ly/mUMrL0
"The custom of church marriages may be particularly hurtful to divorced persons wishing to re-marry. There are deep and involved divisions on the interpretation of scripture in this area. I believe that these are best resolved by the consciences of those getting married. Church ceremonies may injure the consciences of some congregants unnecessarily. And having both church-married and civil-married in a congregation is troublesome." ibid. http://bit.ly/mUMrL0

Happy days are here again

"[FDR's 193] Happy days are here again": "The reality is that we are following virtually the same economic playbook as we did 80 years ago in dealing with the Great Depression, which resulted in a false recovery, followed by the most painful contraction in U.S. history with a 25 percent unemployment rate,” http://bit.ly/iRf8ua
"Inflation data last month confirms that the cost of living is rising much faster than wages. We are on a trajectory to crush the middle class within five years unless urgent, decisive action is taken now. The traditional safety net of home equity today no longer exists." ibid. http://bit.ly/iRf8ua

Decline of manners marches on:

Decline of manners marches on: "Unlike a number of today’s Arab kleptocrats and vulgar Russian oligarchs, no one escorted hookers, no one employed bodyguards and no one employed PR assistants.

This is President Obama and Harry Reid carrying [the unions’] bag, carrying their water, and our companies are hurting because of it, This is a terrible thing for South Carolina.

Wisdom from our least-esteemed president: 'He added that if they (Northern politicians) “did not repeal their unconstitutional and obnoxious enactments … the injured states, after having used all peaceful and constitutional means to obtain redress, would be justified in revolutionary resistance to the Government of the Union.”' - http://bit.ly/mpk4ex

The lunacy of the left:

The lunacy of the left: "But most people on the left choose denial, if not outright delusion.  Why?  Because, unlike conservatives, progressives don't just carry [political] beliefs; they are their [political] beliefs.  Their ideology is their identity.  And stripped of this, what would they have left?  Nothing, emptiness, being lost in an unfathomable universe.  This is precisely why people create alternative realities...because the real one is too unbearable." http://bit.ly/lX5WZw
People are not always as they appear to be.  Sometimes the doctor is a predator, the nice neighbor a thief, and the beguiling political leader a wolf in sheep's clothing.  And if we are not willing to take off the rose-colored glasses, we will put ourselves and everyone around us in danger. ibid.

O not the first

O not the first phony portrayed as liberal super-hero: "Why are we startled to learn the real truth about Gandhi and Malcolm? Because journalists are remarkably adept at seeing only what they want to see when a liberal dreamboat comes floating along on a river of lies." http://bit.ly/kSnHV3

Constitutionally disqualified

Both constitutionally disqualified & Constitutionally disqualified: "Obama may have been born with U.S. citizenship, if indeed he was actually born in the U.S., but he was also born with Kenyan-United Kingdom citizenship and later had Indonesian citizenship. The Founding Fathers understood natural born citizenship to be one without divided loyalties" http://bit.ly/mB8cGh

Ignorance marches on:

Ignorance marches on: "this White House must be counting on the ignorance of the voters and the press to get Obama re-elected, because the rest of us cannot believe how manifestly incompetent an executive he is." http://bit.ly/kOEG7Q

O wilted under pressure as usual.

Actually, of course, O wilted under pressure as usual. But the adults in the administration managed to avoid complete failure. 'The Democrats' jubilation results from the fact that their guy didn't wilt under pressure, but rather lived up to the standard that George W. Bush and John McCain easily met. For this, he is called "courageous" and "gutsy."' http://bit.ly/mexmZm
"What we are currently witnessing is the strange spectacle of liberals trying to grab, for their guy, a mantle neither he nor they ever sought: cold-blooded assassin of anti-American terrorists. This has nothing to do with their true values and priorities, and everything to do with the fact that Obama's economic policies have put him in a deep hole as he seeks re-election next year" ibid. http://bit.ly/mexmZm

Valerie Jarrett fails to castrate US:

Valerie Jarrett fails to castrate US: "The president had been instructed by Jarrett to inform Mr., Panetta that he would have sole discretion to act against the Osama Bin Laden compound.  Jarrett believed this would further delay Panetta from acting, as the responsibility for failure would then fall almost entirely on him.  What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound."  http://bit.ly/mjf0ox
"Basically, the whole damn operation was already ready to go – including the specific team support Intel necessary to engage the enemy within hours of being given notice.  Panetta then made plans to proceed with an on-ground assault." ibid. http://bit.ly/mjf0ox

Hillary, Leon, & Bill forced O to approve

Hillary, Leon, & Bill forced O & his fifth column to go along: "The killing of Osama Bin Laden was in fact a Coup within Obama WH." http://bit.ly/ijy9s4
"There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so.  President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president." ibid. http://bit.ly/ijy9s4
"The operation was at this time effectively unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. [...] When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking “very confused and uncertain.” http://bit.ly/ijy9s4
