Imagine for a moment if a Christian fundamentalist pastor publicly threatened a Democratic Party governor about to sign a legitimately passed bill into law with a long-term campaign of public harassment for doing so. Now imagine if that pastor extended that threat to include appearances at the governor´s home and at his children´s sporting events, and that Republican and conservative elected officials on hand during the pastor´s announcement voiced no objection to the pastor´s threats. All of that would be news, right? Well, Detroit pastor Charles E. Williams II, described here as "Pastor, Historic King Solomon Baptist Church

To borrow a line from Mr. Spock, I would say to this so-called pastor, "Sir, you are employing a double negative."

The liberals feel so deeply and care so much more than others that we have to overlook their occasional exaggerations.

Laws controlling the actions of dangerous conservatives must be strengthened,however.

The lunatic left harrassed Governor Walker & our republican legislators for over a year. Other than conservative talk radio & websites it went largely unreported so it continued without public outcry. Can´t condemn stuff you know nothing about !

Then one day a lefty union hack had a couple eggs thrown at his house. This story made front page headlines, above the fold, complete with pictures & outrage over the behavior of conservatives.

I´m still bruised & battered over what our state went through. The hypocrisy from the left, the double standards, the lies, the misinformation & the free pass from the press has just about turned me off of all things political.

The brutal fact is that Democrats have declared everyone who can´t be bullied by them to be enemies of their state. We, who believe in our Constitution and the rule of law, are their enemy and they have given themselves permission to destroy us by any means possible. Since 1967 we have been in a Second American Civil War- and we´ve just lost a huge battle in that war. The Orcs are coming for us and you better be prepared.

What the left is disparate to tear down capitalism.

1) We know our value system is bankrupt, but if we all stick together, we all get paid.

2) We know we are wrong, but don´t judge us - this is why we hate Judeo-Christian ethics.

3) We are lazy and understand that our lack of motivation will take us to abject poverty and that alone will discredit any arguement we put forth - this is why we push for "social justice".

This last paragraph sums up the ´non-coverage´ by our press very well:

~~But when a reasonably prominent far-left pastor threatens a long-term campaign of harassment against a sitting governor and his family, there´s nothing but stone silence. The only reasonable conclusion is that the press doesn´t want the nation to know about the chronic incivility, threats, or even the violence routinely carried out by the left against Republicans and conservatives. The non-exposure only encourages more of the same. It would appear that the press wouldn´t mind seeing that result at all.~~

This kind of dangerous nonsense is why we moved out of Ann Arbor to a small town in the same county. It is also why I won´t substitute teach in A2 or points East either.

I´m so tired of unions, progressives,and Affirmative Action people who think they are owed something and who care less about the good of the state, city, county or country. They are power hungry and anyone who threatens to take that power away, they will have no compunction about doing great harm to that person.

Rick Snyder was not my preferred candidate for Governor, but his signing the bill has certainly elevated him in my approval.

My brother decided to check out the con and applied then was shocked to receive a legal license. That license even allowed him to claim his home as an official tax free location. He took it to the court house and was told so it´s legal enough and no official classes necessary to qualify. He tucked it away to show real ministers what their competition had become.

Members of Congress and their aides will essentially be exempt from Obamacare, as the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will issue a ruling that says the federal government can subsidize the health insurance premiums of members of Congress and their aides even though the law does not say so. According to Politico, OPM was "under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill" to issue the ruling giving lawmakers and staffers special treatment because Washington feared a so-called "brain drain," as staffers unable to afford the healthcare plans available on the government exchanges threatened to go into the private sector.

HARRISBURG- The fate of Pennsylvania´s 16-month-old voter identification law is in the hands of a Commonwealth Court judge after closing arguments in the landmark voting-rights case Thursday. The state argued that it had done its part to ensure that all registered voters had access to mandatory ID, while petitioners countered that those efforts were not enough. Jennifer Clarke, executive director of the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia, said the law placed a "fundamental burden" on a right "enshrined in the Constitution." "It is time to put an end to this and enjoin this law," Clarke told Judge Bernard McGinley.

A new petition on the White House website asks the administration to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. The request was posted on petitions.whitehouse.gov on July 7 and quickly garnered more than the 100,000 signature requirement for the Obama administration to officially consider the request. "Declare Muslim Brotherhood organization as a terrorist group," was written within days of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who drew much of his support from the group, being removed from power by the military in early July. The petition states, “Muslim Brotherhood has a long history of violent killings & terrorizing opponents.

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Congress´s top inquisitor subpoenaed the State Department on Thursday for documents detailing the inner workings of the independent board that probed the September attack in Benghazi, Libya. Republicans on the House Oversight panel have accused the Accountability Review Board (ARB) of seeking to protect former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in its investigation, notably by declining to interview her. Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said he subpoenaed the department because he was being stonewalled. “After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,”

They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya.

The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

[Video] Ouch. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul to join him for a beer and bury the hatchet in their ongoing -- and very public -- feud. "I´m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don´t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said in an interview on a local radio station. The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."
