Thursday's commination of Obama could come in the form of the contempt vote in the House or the SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare. Failing those, the people will serve it up in NOvember.

It's always the cover up that gets them.

I only pray that SCOTUS doesn’t decide that it’s We the People who deserve commination via the ObamaCare ruling. You just can’t depend on these Jurists anymore to follow the Constitution.

Nope, you got it backwards. You can’t do the snip. And for the record, I am appalled that they continue to refer to female GENITAL MUTILATION designed to MAKE SEX AS UNCOMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE FOR THE FEMALE as circumcision. There is no equivalency at all.

Yes she is.

I thought she had a tough race ahead of her?

Maybe. I'm not sure. I know Florida redid its lines to get rid of what were some of the worst gerrymanders in the nation so she might have a competitive race.

Cool. Looks like, with a few exceptions, a party line vote. Hope something happens to get the Dems to vote contempt. This is an appalling situation.

The NRA is watching this vote so there could be as many D’s to flip. I’ll be watching for the jailbreak. Key House Dems to watch include: Critz, Altmire, Boren, and Rayhall among others.

Boren is a lame duck too but the funny thing about these guys is they often launch comebacks, either congressional or other.

I wonder if Obama has begun to feel
Nixon’s corrupt breath on his neck-
The possible commination of Holder
Should be quite a reality check

Perhaps Michelle Antoinette should
Forget about food for awhile
And pack her ugly, costly clothes
That have never been in style

I want to see them back at home
Living that same Chicago life
Just like before, but with no more
Than any other mob boss and his wife...

“You can’t do the snip.”

Why not just leave the decision to the parents, and leave it at that? Parents might not think the same as the parents next door, but so what? Some women prefer clipped, some unclipped, as well-it is just a preference, like piercings, tats, etc.

The nurses freaked out when my daughter was born and I handed them a pair of little gold studs and asked them to pierce her ears-they refused and told me it was “barbaric” (my ears were pierced at birth, as per hispanic custom). Fortunately, one of my aunts who lived close had given birth to her 5th girl the day before, so she came over and we pierced both our baby girls’ ears.

No-I expected them to get one of the doctors to do the piercing-but those two nurses were horrified at the very idea that I’d want my baby’s ears pierced, even after I explained that it was customary to do that. I insisted that if they clip boys, a girl should be able to get a simple ear piercing, but the logic of that was completely lost on them.

that is weird that they were aghast. surely they wouldn't raise an eyebrow up here as we have every stripe of foreigner on the planet, and many of them also pierce the ears at birth. i think it's adorable. i waited til mine were 3 to pierce their’s. My jewish OB circumcised xsboy in the hospital.

I don’t think it’s a doctor’s or nurse’s job to pierce ears. You did it yourself, which is the correct solution.

Are you kidding? their job is to do what you ask and pay them to do. My mother took me to the Dr. to pierce my ears when i was 13 yo. they didn’t have storeclerks doing them back in the day, and she didn’t want me having friends do it with ice and string and the potential infections that were inevitable. she wanted hygienice surroundings.

This act of commination of firing a woman for doing the right thing, who refused to sell cigarettes to a low-life, entitled little minor who was using a taxpayer funded free money card is why I really do fear for my country.

I could not disagree more with your first sentence. Professionals have the right to refuse to do anything they find objectionable.

No, I wasn’t kidding. I also wasn’t considering what life was like before “ear piercing at the mall” was a common thing.

To me, it would be completely preposterous to ask a doctor or nurse to pierce ears in a maternity ward.

Today.

Maybe 40-50 years ago was a different thing. Or a different culture might have OB/GYN ear piercers as a matter of culture.

i am talking about ear piercing here, not abortions. And of course they can refuse to do whatever, but Dave’s point was that ear piercing is not a medical job and that is just ridiculous. Saying that piercing your baby’s ears yourself rather than having a medical professional do it is the proper course is just wrong. I am astounded that nurses would refuse to something culturally common. ESP in texas.
