ACLU Loses Ten
Commandments Case

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/15/2013 11:14:57 AM

Thou shall not remove the Ten Commandments. That’s the declaration from a federal district court – dismissing a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union against Dixie County, Fla. and ending a six-year legal battle. (Snip) The ACLU sued the county after they allowed a private citizen to erect a six-ton monument of the Ten Commandments atop the steps of the courthouse. A 75-year-old North Carolina man, who happens to be an ACLU member, objected to the monument – which led to the lawsuit. Liberty Counsel represented the county and challenged the ACLU’s standing to bring a

Comments:
Good! And they are even stuck with the court costs. The outrage other than the obvious, is also the fact that the guy who filed suit is a member of the ACLU and lives in another state. There is no doubt that Soros and the ACLU have thousands of little Marxists scouring the country looking for any place than can file one of their heinous lawsuits. The ACLU is an anti-American criminal organization.

The first thing the judges need to put in place is a requirement for the plaintiff (the ACLU) to post a $10 Million bond. Then if they lose they pay it to the State for all the trouble they caused.

That way just is NOT denied, it just costs more than a stamp to file a complaint!

The ruling appears to be based less on the merits of the case than on the technicality that the plaintiff lacks standing to sue because he resides outside the county.

Expect the ACLU to find a county resident who agrees with them or to pay an athiest to move into the county solely for purposes of this litigation. Then the ACLU will re-ignite this tiresome litigation and win the next round.

In the long run, the only way for the county to win is if the courthouse grounds are littered with religious icons from multiple faiths--one for Christians, one for Muslims, one for athiests, one for Buddists, one for Jews, and an open invitation to permit any other belief system to erect their own monument.

Since this is a court house and Western law is primarily based on Abrahamic Law (ie. the Ten Commandments), I see no conflict.

Punishment for the highly offended ACLU member from NC; Chisel the 10 commandments in granite 100 times, or die trying. Either way there will be a test when you are finished.

We really need tort reform, and "loser pays". This is a classic example of how lawyers keep themselves on the public dole. I think that money could be better spent elsewhere. duh!

The ten commandments represents a part of this Republic´s historical start, given the character and practices of the founders and the early Republic. The solution is to install judges who kick the cases out since no thinking person could logically construe something such as this as forcing a state religion on people. They doofus judges who say otherwise don´t know history and haven´t spent any time studying the situation and recent past in the late 1700s both in England and on the European continent. They should be punished by being forced to write 10,000 times in crayon, "I will not invent new laws or perspective. I will only interpret the law as it is written and as it was intended at the time it was written." Make that 500,000 times - libtards are slow learners.

Forgive a second post.

#10, "Honor thy father and mother" might upset all those children of single mothers; they shouldn´t be made to feel like second-class citizens to those kids with two parents.

ObamaCare ‘death panel’ faces
growing opposition from Democrats
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/8/2013 3:21:28 PM     Post Reply
ObamaCare’s cost-cutting board — memorably called a “death panel” by Sarah Palin — is facing growing opposition from Democrats who say it will harm people on Medicare. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean drew attention to the board designed to limit Medicare cost growth when he called for its repeal in an op-ed late last month. Dean was quickly criticized by supporters of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), who noted his ties to the healthcare industry as an adviser to a major D.C. lobbying firm. But the former Vermont governor is not the

Even If Edward Snowden´s leaks have caused irreparable harm to national security, those of us without security clearances only have the government´s word to take for it. But this week´s disclosure that a specific conference call between al Qaeda leaders was detected and recorded by the National Security Agency is precisely the sort of information that should not be in the public domain until the threat has passed, precisely the sort of secret that almost no one has a problem with the government keeping. If it´s true that al Qaeda leaders change their

President Obama told U.S. troops on Wednesday that Americans would not shrink in the face of terror threats that forced the closure of nearly two dozen diplomatic facilities overseas. “The United States is never going to retreat from the world,” Obama said to Marines at Camp Pendleton, near San Diego. “We don’t get terrorized.” The Obama administration has alluded to a significant threat to Americans abroad, ordering the evacuation of non-essential personnel from a U.S. compound in Yemen — and ramping up drone strikes there. Obama and his surrogates have repeatedly trumpeted the decimation of terrorist

Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot.

Obamacare is an "anti-poverty program" aiding poor blacks and Latinos, especially in inner cities, and will help those minorities win health insurance they otherwise wouldn´t get, according to Harvard´s — and the nation´s — leading expert on poverty. In a paper that marks the 25th anniversary of his groundbreaking study of the poor, "The Truly Disadvantaged," Harvard sociologist William Julius Wilson said that without Obamacare and the president´s first-term stimulus programs, poverty in the nation would be far worse. "Quite frankly, I think that Obama´s programs have prevented poverty, including concentrated poverty, from rapidly rising,

It’s easy to talk about how change is good, but when it actually happens, it’s a shock. It felt that way for hundreds of Washington Post employees on Monday when we heard our boss, Donald Graham, tell us that he was selling the newspaper. To appreciate what happened this week, you have to understand how personal the owner’s relationship was with The Post. This is a chief executive who kept at the entry to his office an old wooden cart used to distribute the paper when it was called The Post and Times-Herald.

Most of the 24 health care co-ops created under Obamacare are in danger of running out of money before they even begin offering health insurance to consumers, according to the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services. The 24 nonprofits, intended to create competition for private insurance companies, are funded by a $2 billion loan program authorized by Obamacare to cover their startup costs. The co-ops are expected to become self-sustaining and repay their loans with interest. But 11 of the 16 co-ops the IG reviewed said they expect startup costs to exceed

In November 2009, my Army Reserve Medical Detachment reported to Fort Hood, Tex., in preparation for deployment to Afghanistan. As we waited in line at the base’s processing center, Maj. Nidal Hasan entered the building and fired rounds that would kill 13 people and an unborn child and wound 32 others, including me. After many setbacks, Hasan’s trial finally began this week, only to be delayed yet again on Wednesday. My recovery has been long and agonizing. But the pain that has taken me by surprise has come in the nearly four years since the attack,

WASHINGTON — For the last week, the Obama Administration has been in overdrive, suddenly engaged in the war on terror that it has denied for the last four and a half years. (Snip) While they play a game of “wag the dog,” the obvious threat is all but ignored by the administration and the media. What is it? It is the painfully open border in the south. Why would terrorists attack hardened targets in the Middle East when they can waltz over our southern border and find a cornucopia of soft targets right in the American heartland?

CNN spent an hour of prime time Tuesday night to air a special anchored by Erin Burnett, “The Truth about Benghazi.” They claimed to have learned two vital lessons from their supposedly extensive investigation of that tragedy: It must never happen again, and politics trumped patriotism. Really? That’s it? Are you kidding? The smiling, earnest naivete of Ms. Burnett suggested a graduate student who worked, you know, like really hard at the library all weekend — but apparently didn’t get within spitting distance of a reasonable conclusion.

In seven short months, Ted Cruz has become the most controversial member of the Senate. Perhaps the most combative member of a chamber known for comity, Cruz’s withering criticisms of Washington have made him a champion for the conservative base and a potential pot stirrer in the 2016 GOP nominating contest. Cruz, whom I profile in the new issue of the magazine, sat down with TIME on Aug. 2 at a hotel in New Orleans, where he delivered a speech to the RedState Gathering of conservative activists.

Details of a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration program that feeds tips to federal agents and then instructs them to alter the investigative trail were published in a manual used by agents of the Internal Revenue Service for two years. The practice of recreating the investigative trail, highly criticized by former prosecutors and defense lawyers after Reuters reported it this week, is now under review by the Justice Department. Two high-profile Republicans have also raised questions about the procedure. A 350-word entry in the Internal Revenue Manual instructed agents of the U.S. tax agency to omit any reference

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6 interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the President´s verbal mishaps.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.
