    We allow abortions at the alter liberalism...what's the difference?

    Hey Jack -

    Right Wing religionists and their non sequitur non-arguments notwithstanding . . . facts remain facts.

    You have it COMPLETELY backwards.

    What the Separation of Church and State means is that the church cannot impose its will on the state.

    But the Church STILL must obey the law, so in that sense, the state CAN impose its will on the church.

    If a religionist want’s to break a law . . . The state can forbid it.

    Do you think we’re going to allow Aztec Fundamentalists to perform human sacrifice as a religious rite?

    Will the state condone the actions of a self-proclaimed prophet in kidnapping a young girl and transporting her across state lines?

    Nope . . . Not in the real world.

    The law is the law, and even religions are subject to the law.

    Get used to it.

    “Barack Obama owns the turmoil in the middle east. He said he was going to fix all this...remember?”

    Wrong and WRONG.

    Obama didn’t want to engage in an unprovoked invasion of Iraq . . . That was all GW Bush and company. Obama took over the mess GW left him, but he certainly does not “own” it.

    And no, I’m pretty sure Obama never guaranteed he would undo the tremendous damage caused to this nation by Republican Leadership. That may take decades.

    “Military Commanders can do nothing without the Presidents orders.” Well . . . Yes and no.
    Reagan claimed he had no knowledge of the Iran Contra affair. But military officers certainly did know about that.

    And guess what, Obama will not be President for life.

    And that means, American citizens must be discerning enough and intelligent enough to choose a President who will not continue the pattern of destruction advanced by the irresponsible and naïve GW Bush administration.

    Kennedy and Obama had the cool, the integrity, and the intellect to do the right thing.

    Think about it honestly. What Republican, aside from Rand Paul, would tell the Joint Chiefs of Staff "forget about it?"

    GaryO, see if you can follow me here; Obama is the President of the United States. Obama is the Commander-in-Chief. Military Commanders can do nothing without the Presidents orders. Any action that is taken by our military will done at the direction of Dear Leader.

    George W. Bush, Fox News, and LaMar Alexander will not be giving any orders for military action; Obama will.

    Barack Obama owns the turmoil in the middle east. He said he was going to fix all this...remember?

    "...generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth." -Barack Hussein Obama (Nomination Victory Speech, June 3, 2008)

    "Intelligence nightmare: Extremists returning home"

    And that does NOT make a case for attacking ISIL in force, in the Middle East.

    Terrorists can be trained ANYWHERE.

    Attacking ISIL in the Mideast will NOT curb the recruitment of homegrown Islamic terrorists willing to attack America.

    How would it?

    Yes, I know, we have military commanders who are itching to start a massive war . . . similar to the way LaMar Alexander wanted to Nuke Cuba in 1962.

    We don't have to let them get their way.
