Have We Lost the Culture?
American Spectator, by Quin Hillyer

Short answer: almost, but not entirely. And it can be won back. I explain why, at the University of Mobile’s Center for Leadership. Some of the good signs: Moreover, much of the news on the legal fight for religious freedom in recent months has been good. With a few notable exceptions, court after court has issued preliminary injunctionsin favor of charities and businesses fighting the infamous “HHS mandate” that would force institutions to pay for abortion-inducing services against the strong, clear dictates of their faith…. A few other statistics also are encouraging:

When the left suffers a setback in a court,they never throw in the towel on the cause,they just look for other ways and or courts to get the decisions reversed. They know there´s a lot of cases headed to the Supreme Court eventually and they probably hope they can flip Roberts again.

I think Obama will eventually lose on religious institutions and the BC mandate but I´m sure sure on people like the owners of Hobby Lobby.

One of the problems on the first SC challenge is the harm was theoretical at that point. Without clear harm,there can´t be a remedy.There´s going to be tons more Obamacare lawsuits as people start suffering actual harm.I´m still baffled by the lack of equal protection lawsuits,since so many people/groups got carve outs.

If teen birth rates are down, it´s because fewer teen illegals are coming to the USA to give birth or get pregnant. And this of course is due to the recession, as there are fewer jobs all-round for all grades of labor.

To all my fellow Ldotters, support and encourage any young people you know who are daring enough to buck the culture and marry each other. Shower them with love and good wishes. Mentor them when things get tough. Babysit for their young families and network for them when they´re starting their careers.

They are the brave ones who will keep our country and it´s tough for them right now.

Yes. We lost it when Elvis replaced Perry Como, when VWs replaced Chevies, when printing replaced cursive, when Warhol replaced Sargent, when eecummings replaced Poe, when Happy Holidays replaced Merry Christmas, when Social Security replaced thrift and savings, when healthcare replaced being sick, when jeans replaced men´s slacks and women´s skirts,when church was replaced by talking heads, when screens replaced paper, when gratuitous violence replaced romance. When was that? Oh, about 1957.

U.S. Seniors Have Realigned
With the Republican Party
Gallup.com, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/26/2014 12:35:38 PM     Post Reply
PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S seniors -- those aged 65 and older -- have moved from a reliably Democratic group to a reliably Republican one over the past two decades. From 1992 through 2006, seniors had been solidly Democratic and significantly more Democratic than younger Americans. Over the last seven years, seniors have become less Democratic, and have shown an outright preference for the Republican Party since 2010.(Snip for graphic)In 1992, 53% of senior citizens, on average, identified as Democrats or said they were independents but leaned Democratic, while 39% identified as Republicans or leaned Republican, resulting in a 14-percentage-point Democratic

Obama Loses Complete
Touch with Reality

Last week I wrote that President Obama, having been bested by Vladimir Putin at virtually every turn, has retreated into a world of his own making. “He’s created a fantasy world where disengagement translates into influence and we’re strong and Putin is weak,” I said. I’m here to report that Mr. Obama’s dissociative disorder has become more, not less, acute. As evidence I would point to an exchange the president had yesterday with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, in which Mr. Obama made this claim: ? Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors, not out of strength but

Malaysia Flight 370 pilot´s friend says
he was in ‘no state of mind to be flying’

Doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370´s pilot was devastated over his wife´s decision to move out and could have taken the plane on a "last joyride," according to a long-term friend. The unnamed pal, also a pilot, revealed Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was seriously "rattled" by his family problems and shouldn´t even have been at the controls of the Boeing 777. "He´s one of the finest pilots, around and I´m no medical expert, but with all that was happening in his life Zaharie was probably in no state of mind to be flying," he told the NZ Herald. The friend said

Koch Brothers, Rove among

It’s been years in the making, but all the hard work has paid off: “Koch,” as in the surname of the energy-billionaire brothers David and Charles, has become the liberal “abracadabra” of 2014 — the magic word that mesmerizes liberals into parting with their money and giving it to Democrats. What’s especially interesting about it is how conscious Democrats appear to be that they’ve helped create this two-headed monster to scare their own people into coughing up dollars they might not give otherwise. “Koch” now joins “Rove” and “Newt” in the Liberal Fund-raising Hall of Fame — in the very

ABC’s Jonathan Karl touched a nerve when he asked President Obama whether Mitt Romney might have been on to something with his observation that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe. The question came in Obama’s press conference at the Hague yesterday. Obama went into epic BS mode. At the Weekly Standard, Daniel Halper transcribes this quotable quote: With respect to Mr. Romney’s assertion that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe, the truth of the matter is that America has a whole lot of challenges. Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neigbors, not out of

Wendol Jarvis knew that it was perfect the moment he saw it. As the founder of the Iowa Film Office, Jarvis had spent weeks toward the end of 1987 and into early 1988 scouring his state trying to find a suitable location to shoot Shoeless Joe, a film adaptation of the W. P. Kinsella novel of the same name—a whimsical fable about baseball and familial bonds. The book told the story of a man who builds a ball field on his Iowa farm after a voice instructs him to, and who then receives a visit from a group of deceased,

One-Ship Ukraine Navy
Defies Russia to the End

NOVO-OZERNE, Ukraine—Its escape to the open seas blocked by sunken ships, the Ukrainian minesweeper Cherkassy weaved and lurched in a narrow gulf on Tuesday afternoon with a symbolic, if inevitably brief, distinction: the last Ukrainian military vessel in Crimea not yet seized by the Russian navy. From the banks of the gulf cutting into the western flank of the peninsula from the Black Sea, the Russians watched the trapped, constantly moving ship, then dispatched patrol boats to chase and bump the stubborn vessel in several unsuccessful capture attempts. All other Ukrainian vessels blockaded in the same gulf, known as the Donuzlav

Controversy as Donald Rumsfeld says
a ´trained ape´ would manage the

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal. [Snip] An aide to one Republican committee member said Monday that the White House and the Treasury Department were already dangerously close to causing a constitutional crisis. ´They´ve blown off the subpoenas,´ the aide said, referring to legal demands the committee issued to the IRS on August 2 and February 14. ´If the DOJ keeps dragging its heels too, and can just get away with it,

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing
