This week, America will celebrate our 239th birthday.  Freedom can never be taken for granted — here, or anywhere around the world.
Whether it’s arming Ukraine or declaring energy independence, Lithuania sets an example for the region, and frankly, the world. The American people recognize that this threat demands decisive leadership and action.

Face it. The only reason Boehner went to Lithuania is for the cheap vodka. He's a stumbling, slurring, incompetent drunk.

We now know for certain that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not turn over ALL of her work-related emails.

What’s still missing from these gaps in her email record?

All human beings are created equal by God and thus deserve to be treated with love, dignity and respect. I am, however, disappointed that the Supreme Court disregarded the democratically-enacted will of millions of Americans by forcing states to redefine the institution of marriage. My views are based on my upbringing and my faith, and I believe that marriage is a sacred vow between one man and one woman.

"My views are based on my upbringing and my faith, and I believe that marriage is a sacred vow between one man and one woman." In as much as this statement represents your personal beliefs and your own orientation toward marriage I have tremendous respect for your honesty. 

In OBERGEFELL v. HODGES Justice Kennedy writes: 

"The right to marry is fundamental as a matter of history and tradition, but rights come not from ancient sources alone. They rise, too, from a better informed understanding of how constitutional imperatives define a liberty that remains urgent in our own era. Many who deem same-sex marriage to be wrong reach that conclusion based on decent and honorable religious or philosophical premises, and neither they nor their beliefs are disparaged here. But when that sincere, personal opposition becomes enacted law and public policy, the necessary consequence is to put the imprimatur of the State itself on an exclusion that soon demeans or stigmatizes those whose own liberty is then denied."

In his dissent Chief Justice Roberts rebukes and chastises a majority he argues by their actions have removed not just the issue of samesex marriage, but the democratic process itself, from the people. He writes:

"_The Court’s accumulation of power does not occur in a vacuum. It comes at the expense of the people. And they know it._ Here and abroad, people are in the midst of a serious and thoughtful public debate on the issue of samesex marriage. They see voters carefully considering samesex marriage, casting ballots in favor or opposed, and sometimes changing their minds. They see political leaders similarly reexamining their positions, and either reversing course or explaining adherence to old convictions confirmed anew. They see governments and businesses modifying policies and practices with respect to same-sex couples, and participating actively in the civic discourse.They see countries overseas democratically accepting profound social change, or declining to do so. This deliberative process is making people take seriously questions that they may not have even regarded as questions before."

And then he punctuates:

"There will be consequences to shutting down the political process on an issue of such profound public significance. Closing debate tends to close minds. People denied a voice are less likely to accept the ruling of a court on an issue that does not seem to be the sort of thing courts usually decide".
 
What a warning! What a caution! After all, the processes of our democracy are constantly at stake, not only in relation to this issue, but with each and within every set of issues that confront us as a Nation. For many the court's ruling has come upon them suddenly, and for other's it did not come soon enough. How human...

In another post you remind us “This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.” While my views on marriage equality may differ from yours on this we agree. What is love, after all, if it is not the fulfillment of the law?

Have a good weekend sir. Blessings.

We will continue to oppose Pres. Obama's reckless push to import terrorists to the United States.
Nice? Bringing some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists to the United States and giving them the same rights as U.S. citizens is a lot of things, but nice is the last word that comes to mind.

While Democrats focus on funneling money to the IRS, we’re backing our troops – working to make sure they have the resources they need and the pay raise they have earned.

+Danny Kyllo I don't know if they do or not, as I don't know of any plane of any kind that Iran has,  I do know though that their only plan is to take over Iran, Syria and what ever other countries they can.

Mr. President, our troops shouldn’t be used as political leverage. They should ALWAYS come first.

+Paul Gilmore the government is comprised of individuals who are out for themselves. That is human nature. Idealistic people don't do well in a government that is full of people making laws to benefit themselves.

The VA’s problem isn’t funding — it’s outright failure. Absolute failure to take care of our veterans. And only the president can change the culture at the VA. http://j.mp/1NkmJy1

Heading to Charleston right now to pay respects to the families and the community. As I do, keeping in my prayers the family and comrades of Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim, who was killed last week in the line of duty. For 27 years, Officer Kim served with honor and integrity. Today, we mourn terrible loss but take comfort in the compassion Americans extend to one another in times of trial.

#ObamaCare  is fundamentally broken, increasing health care costs for millions of Americans.  Today’s ruling doesn’t change that fact.  Republicans will continue to listen to American families and work to protect them from the consequences of ObamaCare.  And we will continue our efforts to repeal the law and replace it with patient-centered solutions that meet the needs of seniors, small business owners, and middle-class families.

The House just observed a moment of silence to honor the lives and memory of the nine innocent churchgoers murdered in #Charleston.

+Carina Rogers How are they doing that, because they happen to agree with Obama this one time?  Are they suppose to disagree with him every time.    If that happened then nothing would get done.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has uncovered new evidence proving that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made yet ANOTHER false claim about her Libya-related emails.
Perhaps if the U.S. Ambassador – an actual government official – had received the same direct access and attention that Blumenthal did, the outcome in Benghazi would have been different.
