The RFRA controversy is a whole lot of do as I say and not as I do. Well, at least a whole lot of discrimination based on creed, political beliefs, and just generally demonizing your political opponent.

“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” Darden, who is gay, told a local television station at the time, "Because of her stances and her views on this, I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no.”

Darden added: "It’s just equality, dignity for everyone. Everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”

This reminds me so much of the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. Marginalize the opposition through propaganda.
Jordan Lorence is a veteran attorney who in 2006 represented a female photographer in one of the cases widely cited in the “religious freedom" law debate this week.

Educate yourselves...

Here is another good article on why the Indiana RFRA is not a bad law. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/416160/indiana-protecting-discrimination-josh-blackman
 
You've got questions: How do RFRAs work? Why is everyone so mad about Indiana's? Do religious freedom protections hurt gays? We've got answers.

This is a pretty good analysis of the Indiana law after doing what liberal activits apparently did not do: read the bill.

Religious freedom laws prohibit governments from "burdening" a person or a company's exercise of religion unless that burden furthers a "compelling" government purpose. Such laws are generally intended to carve out narrow exemptions for groups like the Amish, whose religious beliefs are sometimes at odds with regulations that have emerged in modern times...

The law was dubbed the "Hobby Lobby bill" when it was being debated in Indianapolis, Breen said, because it was a reaction to the federal government's failed attempt to force Hobby Lobby to provide contraceptive coverage for its employees. That case went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that some private companies could be exempted from part of a federal law because of the religious beliefs of their owners.
When Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed a new state law that allows people and companies to claim a religious objection to doing business with same-sex couples, he pointed to Illinois and Kentucky, saying he was simply bringing the state in line with its neighbors.

I laughed at this. Especially since my father in law recently built a birdhouse.

In other words
1) delay this beyond the election year, and/or
2) we should actually have read the bill and had it fairly evaluated before we voted for it.

Sen. Donnelly is my Senator. He seems like a nice guy. Too bad he follows bad leaders and is a really bad legislator.
A group of Democratic senators is urging the Obama administration to delay a key portion of Obamacare because the results could be

Good bye, Obamacare? Good riddence, I say. This law was destined to fail. It looks as if it will be collapsing under its own weight. If the subsidies remain, this is bad news for taxpayers thanks to the Democrats and Obama.

The other sign health insurance markets are in the early stages of a death spiral is the age mix of those buying policies through Obamacare. Originally it was estimated that around 40 percent of enrollees had to be in the relatively healthy 18 to 34-year-old age segment, so their premiums could be used to pay for the health expenses of older, less-healthy enrollees. So far it appears only some 28 percent of enrollees are in that coveted age group, which also comprises around half of the uninsured.
The Supreme Court decision in King v. Burwell, the case challenging the Obama administration’s decision to award tax credits for health insurance sold through federally established exchanges, could turn on the question of whether a ruling that ends the tax credits on federal exchanges might cause something known as a “death spiral” in health insurance markets.

This is interesting to say the least. It appears he spends a fraction of the money the Obama's do on travel (like Michelle's extra flight to Martha's Vineyard a few years ago), yet this guy gets run put of town? I am critical of this kind of spending, but why the double standard on public expenditures?

Washington and the media never cease to amaze me.
Few crooks unmask themselves in such dramatic fashion.

Story
Tagline
"No messin' with Sasquatch!"
Introduction
What's with that tagline? Glad you asked. 

Atticus Finch was my profile picture for years.  (I loved the scene with Atticus shooting the rabid dog - "best shot in the county.")  It was time for a little fresher profile picture.  I found an article where a hunter claims to have killed a bigfoot.  It included a photo. "Dead bigfoot.  photo.  How cool is that?"  I knew it had to be the new profile picture.  

Shortly after posting the new profile picture, one of my G+ political friends reminded me of the beef jerky ad. It just seemed apropos. It just had to remain my profile pic and tagline... at least until it gets old.
