About Me

I am not an English Major. I do and will from time to time make grammatical and spelling errors. It would be appreciated if those errors are pointed out using DU mail, but if you must show your superior ability to use the English language by posting on the forum, do not be offended if I choose to point out your need to show that superiority on the public forum also.

If the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. Two Questions.

Will it hurt Obama or empower him?

What should the next step be?

Does the 1st Amendment give more freedom to churches than others?

This morning on Here and Now, a segment was on the hate speech of some churches toward homosexuals.
I may have misunderstood what the guest said, but I took him to say that the 1st Amendment gives more free speech freedoms to churches because of the separation of church and state, than others.

I took him to mean that the same words spoken out of the church may be limited by the government because there are some limits to free speech, although few. But, when it is said in a church it is double protected.

This is my understanding and not his exact words.

He also closed by stating that the fundamental christians feel the church is under siege and they are happy to have one hours a week they can be with like minded people, but they understand out in the world they must behave.

One again this was my interpretation and may have been misunderstood.

But, I though of those who have bombed abortion clinics, they certainly were not happy with the one hour a week and took the hate speech in sermons as something to act on.

I also wonder if homosexuals were calling for the caging of fundamental christians or killing them by the government if that would be dismissed so freely.

If anyone heard this story please let me know your take. Did I misunderstand or read too much into what he said?

Might be time for another message from the administrators on no infighting.

I know many are upset and hurt tonight.

But, from some of the post tonight, I have to think of the saying "with friends like this who needs enemies".

I am not saying they are trolls or are going to the point of alerting, just this scares me 5 months to the election.

Just a suggestion

I have heard about the legal troubles Walker has

and how his closest aid and turned against him.

But, not being from Wisconsin and mostly hearing about the recall I only know he might be indicted but not why. Can someone explain what is happening now since that seems to be the next step.

CNN has just basically said it is Obama's fault

The money didn't mean anything, it is all Obama's fault for not going to Wisconsin. Also, some are questioning the exit polls which says Obama is leading big.

What % would be needed for either side to claim a Mandate?

Who is Trivedi?

Could he take any votes from Barrett?

CNN just said their exit polls are 50%-50%

Let me get this right,

Because of a law which most didn't know existed Walker is allowed to raise as much money as possible, while Barrett is limited to $10,000 at a pop. Right?

Walker out spends/raises Barrett 7 or 8 to 1. Right?

Walker got 70% of his money from out of state. Right?

But, Barrett is the political prostitute for taking money from unions some of which were out of state. Right?

Please excuse me but I have an appointment back on earth!

Please use only one set of rules.

Forgive me if I rant but I am so tried of the rules being changed daily, going with which ever make Romney sound better. I not just talking about the Republican party, but the media also.

Obama economic record start counting on January 1, 2009 (19.5 days before he is in office).
Romney economic record start counting 2 years in his term.

Obama invest in green energy and it goes out of business, costs jobs.
Romney invest in companies and they go out of business, saved jobs.

Obama one term is more than enough to fix the economy.
Romney one term is not enough to make a difference.

I could list many more but you get my point.

You need a program to know which rules are being used at any point in time.
