We Americans seem to think that suffering

Is not only expected but demanded by the Gods and if things ever start getting too easy, we need to start punishing ourselves again. I suspect that there is a strain of harsh Puritanism that runs through the psyche of our society?

I don't necessarily agree

That a Republican Senate will blockade a SCOTUS appointment. The PR damage would be too much for them. And Obama won't have to nominate a Scalito clone either.

Too busy to rid our country of a so-called "Tyrant"

What would our founding fathers have to say about that?

Or maybe President Obama isn't really a tyrant?

Give them time

For awhile, they weren't talking about breaching the debt ceiling or shutting down the government either let alone actually doing any of those things. This "lawsuit" that Boehner is pushing is idiotic but that won't satisfy the crazies who really want impeachment and I believe that eventually the Republicans in the House will take a bite of that apple. Gotta keep their base happy so that they will continue to blindly vote for them, right?

It's basically all over except for the teeth gnashing (and wails of religious persecution)

Has any Federal Judge in ANY state upheld any of these same-sex marriage bans? That they are falling all over the place seems to pretty much prove that they shouldn't have been passed in the first place. The remarkable thing is that they were allowed to stand for so long (let alone be passed in the first place since the laws were all passed on non-secular grounds and, thus, patently unconstitutional to begin with IMHO).

That would imply that they have some left


(closely held) companies now have "religious rights"?

And Bill O'Reilly can't figure out how the tides work

They're both on Fox too. Coincidence?

They obsess way too much

Over what goes on in bathrooms. Why is that? I go to the bathroom to do my business and leave. I don't spend any time worrying what the person in the stall next to me is doing or what genitals they have. Geez.
