The National Journal reported:
- “We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”
- “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.”
- “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”
- “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.”
- “We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them.”
- “We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”
- “We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions.”
- “We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work.”
- “We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America.”
- “We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform.”
- “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!”
And the main tenet of conservatives’ philosophy, according to Warren? “I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.”
The bill introduced by Rep. Michelle Bachmann, also known as the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014, will “impose sanctions against persons who knowingly provide material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents, and for other purposes.”
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. The Muslim Brotherhood main branch, based in Egypt, has financed terrorist attacks worldwide that have killed Americans and others. The Brotherhood attacks Christians, women, and other religious minorities, in the name of Allah to fulfill al-Banna’s vision of “fighting the unbelievers…to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam.” The methods al-Banna suggested to advance jihad included “beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their places of worship, and smashing their idols.” Al-Banna also said “it is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated” and to “impose its law on nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

I just received a notice from WND where they cite a newspaper article quoting a terrorist who is behind the rocket attacks on Israel.
When the terrorist was asked why they couldn't aim their rockets better, the terrorist said, "Their God is re-directing our rockets".
Praise God. He said He would protect Israel. God doesn't lie. Those terrorists actually acknowledge "Their God". You'd think they would actually turn to this powerful God. I hope they do!
Where does God belong? Surely not in our schools, and defiantly not in our politics. Seriously people have we lost our way?
When will the bible hating, philosophical agenda pushing Libs realize just what they are doing to this country is everything but the right thing. “How is it possible that violent crime in the United States has surged by more than 460 percent since 1960?” In 1963 the disrespectful-of-religion Supreme Court removed the Bible from public schools – by an 8-1 majority vote.
When will the bible hating, philosophical agenda pushing Libs realize just what they are doing to this country is everything but the right thing. “How is it possible that violent crime in the United States has surged by more than 460 percent since 1960?” In 1963 the disrespectful-of-religion Supreme Court removed the Bible from public schools – by an 8-1 majority vote. “It led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism.” – Justice Potter Stewart, the lone dissenter.
You see this, right? The “adversary” of a Christian nation disconnected the tie-in to God from public education – and America’s children – in 1963. America was a Christian nation. The Mayflower Compact declared, “In the name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten, having undertaken – for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith …” Not only do 66 percent of U.S. adults think teaching the Bible in schools is important, but a whopping 75 percent are of the opinion that teaching about the Bible in public schools could help reinforce moral principles — a viewpoint shared by the National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools. In general, 77 percent of those surveyed believe the morals and values of the nation are on a decline, and that a decline in Biblical literacy was one of the main causes (32 percent) in addition to the media's negative influence (29 percent) and "corruption from corporate greed" (25 percent).
"The Bible has affected the world for centuries in innumerable ways, including art, literature, philosophy, government, philanthropy, education, social justice and humanitarianism. One would think that a text of such significance would be taught regularly in schools. Not so. That is because of the 'stumbling block' (the Bible again) that is posed by the powers that be in America."
Many here are in their fifties, plus or minus, (I think that's because it's our demographic), so may know what I'm about to say, or may have even experienced it like me. But things have significantly changed in our lifetime.
For example, many careers used to be a lifelong commitment. Either due to the fact that people selected jobs that fit their lifestyle and personality, caring less, I believe, about the actual work, or that you carried on a family tradition of some kind (e.g., family farm, trade or service).
Today, this is scarcely true of anyone. At the very least, your job is not your life. Many professionals now view their work as a simple nine-to-five job, where they put in the minimum required to fulfill their 'contract' and then go home to have their life. This change in loyalty has been reciprocated by the employers as well. Workers are judged on short term capabilities, now, rather than potential, that is, if they still have a professional staff here in the U.S..
Workers now seek 'benefits', employers want their money's worth. Commitments are far less loyal and way more generic.
I must say, this phenomenon, in particular, caught me by surprise. Using your job as a 'tool' instead of a 'spouse' makes one hell of a difference.
Many unskilled workers, of course, still have no choice (they must work at whatever they can find) and are really getting punished by the lack of smaller family businesses.
College grads are also getting hurt, because employers neither take general or unspecific degrees, nor do they take lower ranking students.
It seems we've went from 'building a life together' to meeting a 'mutual contract'.
It’s highly unusual for a high-ranking soldier, let alone a high-ranking Marine, to publicly question White House and Pentagon policy. Yet that’s exactly what four-star Gen. James Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps, did yesterday in Washington.
Speaking at the Brookings Institute Tuesday, Amos said the Obama administration paved the way for the emergence of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) by completely withdrawing American troops in 2011.
“I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don't think we'd be in the same shape we're in today,” Amos said.
Amos also blasted the White House for failing to live up to its obligations around the world.
THIS IS A FB HEATED CONVERSATION REGARDING THE HOBBY LOBBY RULING. IT IS LONG BUT I FEEL PEOPLE NEED TO SEE HOW QUICKLY WE DEMONIZE PEOPLE WITHOUT THE FACTS ALL FOR A POLITICAL AGENDA? "WE THE PEOPLE" ARE RIPPING EACH OTHER APART WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THE GOVERNMENT(many in both parties) DESIRE BECAUSE THEY KNOW....UNITED WE THE PEOPLE STAND, DIVIDED WE THE PEOPLE WILL FALL. It begins with a comment from "Monica" on a "I stand with Hobby Lobby" photo.
No! This is complete discrimination against women! Its a step backwards... Look...this is a woman's private decision. And if shes working for HL and is in a situation were she needs a "morning-after pill- or what ever contraceptive" then her insurance should cover her! This is not a high paying job! The flip side is our tax dollars will pay for her and her babies! I'm sick of shit people and company's hiding behind religion!!! Here's a idea ... fucking hire neutered men! The one in Millard didn't even have a insurance plan in effect as of 5 years ago when my girl-friend Rita worked there! Another sign of not being a caring company!

You are uniformed and repeating lies. Here are the FACTS! There are 20 BIRTH CONTROL choices. Hobby Lobby pays for 16 out of the 20. Hobby Lobby does not pay for 4 out of the 20. 4 that can possibly cause a fetus to abort. There are 16 other forms of birth control from the pill (multiple kinds), spermicide, shot, etc...etc..that are covered and 100% paid for! It is MY right and the RIGHT of any American to not be forced by the government to pay for something that goes against a persons religious beliefs. You are just repeating some news flash you probably saw for 2 seconds and do not know the facts, CLEARLY. If a female can't figure out how NOT to get knocked up with 16 different PAID, FREE, birth control choices then she needs to be studying, not humping. Get your facts straight before you debate, You are only spreading lies!

Katherine Kincaid: Yep! Proud Employee right here. Best company I have ever worked for. They treat us with respect, and pay is awesome. I am making more money working for them than I did when I worked in healthcare as a CNA. I have a college degree and couldn't find one of those $40,000 a year jobs that was promised to me. Went to work for them, and it has been great.

WOW! Thanks for enlightening me Amy Kathryn! Your brilliance is baffling and your compassion is chilling! Birth control is still the woman's choice and a private decision that a women makes between herself,family and God. You, your mother, your daughters, your sisters, all women should have the option of all option's when paying for overpriced insurance! This includes the 16 birth controls that you so proudly brag about and, the 3- birth blockers AKA, The Morning After-Pills and IUD which stops the egg from implanting...Not a big difference between the two when your a Christian. All of it has the same result. 3-block, 16 are preventive, 16 - allowing all people to have sexual intercourse all the time, and not get pregnant. The 3-others are used in emergencies or for other personal reasons. Women are loosing control of their/our rights and now more rights will be lost due to Big Corp, & money! Don't you get it? They are hiding behind religion! Earlier in your condescending rant you wrote, " SHE NEED'S TO BE STUDYING,NOT FUCKING"!! Why are you looking at it from a one sided perspective? So... In your head if a women get's pregnant you are labeling her and all other women as, uneducated whores! ( remember studying not fucking is what you wrote) Really? Here's a thought....this could be RAPE! And this woman is someones, child, mom, she maybe a widow, a student. She was raped or made a bad decision. Now she needs help! Her Money's tight and she's on a limited HL income of $7-14 per hour. She now has to make a big decision about her life, her religion, how shes going to pay for morning-after pill, a baby, or adoption etc..,That morning after pill needs to be there for all women! I hope this never happens to anyone you love Amy! Because we clearly know where you stand! You mentioned, you have a right not to pay for something that isn't part of your religious belief. Guess what all Americans especially women will be paying for it! Thanks to mental giants like you! This ruling has opened up the flood gates for more than you can imagine including other companies to do the same. You have to look at the big-picture and think ahead Amy Kathryn. Maybe next time...O"H that's right it's too late! FYI Its my American right to voice my opinion, here's a fact for you learn the fucking difference between an opinion and lying!

Well bright bulb. It has. I love the what if's. If a women is raped. She will go to the hospital and be cared for. She can abort if she wants. You want to make this an abortion issue. It is not. It is a religious freedom issue. Oh. Btw one that Bill clinton signed into office and now Hillary along with dim whits like you are running around spreading LIES. Oh my God. Hobby lobby is sending women to the dark ages. They wont pay for birth control! That is a lie and you are still uninformed. Your right to have 4 birth control medications is still your right. No one took that away. You just have to pay for if yourself. YOU have NO right to tell someone they have to pay for a medication that goes against their religious beliefs just as no one has the right to tell you you cant take it. You just pay yourself. That simple. Stop twisting it.

And no i said your stupid if you are that worried about getting pregnant that you can't figure out how to be PROACTIVE with 16 different PAID FOR, AVAILABLE, forms. In addition if you do happen to need the less then $20 Plan B with a coupon available to make it even cheaper, then I suggest you DO study! Study either a) the 16 forms of free birth control available or b) How to budget your money if you cant afford less then $20 just in case you have a slip on a twice then minimum wage job. If your raped that is a different story and you still have the choice of abortion. I'm not sure how you got "all unwed mother's are uneducated whores" out of that. I see those words no where. I bet you are GREAT at TWISTER!

And YOU Monica stated multiple lies! YOU need to differentiate between an opinion and a lie because YOU are the liar in this situation. Whether it is intentional or not, the facts prove your statements false. #1 LIE: You stated that "hobby lobby wont pay for the morning after pill or whatever contraceptive." FACT: Hobby Lobby DOES pay for contraception. LIE #2 "This is not a high paying job! " FACT-Hobby Lobby pays TWICE the minimum wage. LIE #3 "This ruling has opened up the flood gates for more than you can imagine including other companies to do the same." " Women are loosing control of their/our rights and now more rights will be lost due to Big Corp, & money!" FACT: The ruling ONLY applies to closely held corporations. Here is the definition of "closely held corporations": A closely held corporation is a corporation in which more than half of the shares are held by fewer than 5 individuals. Closely held corporations are private companies, and are not publicly held. In a closely held corporation, if one of the shareholders wants to sell some or all of his/her shares, the sale must take place with one of the other existing shareholders, since no sale of shares can take place. Therefore you are once again spreading LIES. Big corporations can NOT use this ruling.

You attempted to demonize a company without the facts. You repeat lies in order to do this. You called them uncaring, you cursed, you spoke of neutered men? Now you want to respond and speak of my lack of compassion? Call me a mental giant? I believe all I said to you initially was that you are a liar. I have backed up my defense and I will continue to speak out against people like YOU that are the TRUE fear mongers. Class Dismissed!
How the Feds Stole Summer
Although few now dispute that the American education system is hopelessly broken, the reasons for this, as well as what we should do about, remain the subject of much disagreement. On one side, there are the regulators who argue that all of the problems with education can be explained by rules that are too loose. In the view of the bureaucrats at the Department of Education, a lack of stringent enough standards are all that ails American schools.
This is the impetus behind a push for longer school hours, increased early childhood education, the elimination of recess periods, and the implementation of federal standards such as No Child Left Behind and Common Core.
Most recently, we have seen calls to do away with summer vacation and have school continue year-round in an unending cycle that will consume children’s whole lives from the ages of six to 18 - or 22 for those who attend college (which the Obama administration insists everyone should do.)
This mindset represents the typical progressive tendency to treat human being like numbers that can be manipulated to balance an equation. To improve school outcomes, all we need to do is impose more school, they reason, and the results will follow. Unfortunately for them, and for those of us unlucky enough to live under their rule, people do not work like this at all.
People have minds, and wills, and personalities that respond differently to different situations. There are undoubtedly some children who would prosper under increased pressure at school, just as there are undoubtedly some who would crack and break under the strain.
Politicians keep wanting to impose one system of education on the entire country, ignoring the fact that our individual aptitudes and interests preclude any such system, however carefully designed, from ever being effective. Competition and individual consumer choice work well in every other market. They will work in education too.
This simple idea is one of the key motivators behind “We Will Not Conform,” a national strategy session being hosted by FreedomWorks and Glenn Beck, and featuring a host of influential commentators such as Michelle Malkin and FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe.
The event will educate parents, teachers, and concerned citizens about what they can do to stop the federal education standards of Common Core and put education back into the hands of local communities.
We Will Not Conform will be held in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, July 22, and broadcast in movie theaters nationwide. Far from being just a visual presentation, however, it is an interactive discussion that encourages participation from audiences via their mobile devices. The event will be rebroadcast on July 29th as well.
We don’t need tighter government restrictions. We don’t need to lock our children in windowless rooms eight hours a day, all year round, to help them succeed. We simply need to give them the flexibility to learn and prosper in a way that respects them as individuals. We hope you will join us to share your thoughts on this important issue next Tuesday.
