  • Justice Alito: Why Not Let 4 Lawyers Marry One Another? [Romans 1]

    Marriage laws usually involve certain limitations:

    1. One human (presumed) male;

    2. One human (presumed) female;

    3. Of a certain age;

    4. Not of a certain level of familial relationship.

    If "love is all you need" then none of the other limitations should be applicable either. You should be able to marry your 12 year old sister and her little dog too based on the same arguments made in favor of gay marriage.

    I think Rubio showed poor judgment and let himself get snookered into the immigration deal. Bad choice and I am supporting Cruz for President. That being said, he is still the third most conservative Senator and I would not have minded if he stayed there, particularly since I think he learned his lesson. I don’t think he is going to win the nomination although being Hispanic and from Florida makes him a VP candidate if Walker gets the nod. Otherwise, I think he is tired of the games in the Senate and will be running for Governor in Florida after Rick Scott. The big issue is who will run for his Senate seat in Florida.

  • GOP Descends Into Madness As Ted Cruz Vaults Into Top Tier Of 2016 GOP Candidates

    Armando Guerra to 2ndDivisionVet
    Yes, it is total madness and Cruz has absolutely no chance of winning in the general election. Therefore, the best tactic for all those Democrats who turn out to vote in the Republican primaries and previously voted for the likes of Dole, McCain and Romney to ensure a Republican defeat should go out and vote early and often for Cruz to be the Republican nominee.

    Really, if they think he has no chance of winning then they should be celebrating his rise in the polls and not trying to knock him down. The more shrill the left gets over Cruz the more it means they fear he actually can win. If his campaign was the madness they claim they would be standing back to watch the self destruction.

    I have come to the conclusion that the goal is to have a nation of lawbreakers. Whether a taxpayer, an immigrant, a person in need of health care, or a kid eating a school lunch, you have surely broken some law or regulation and have not found yourself in jail thanks to “prosecutorial discretion.” With this executive action the administration will have millions of foot soldiers who are not only grateful, but also mindful that “discretion” can go away very quickly. Your freedom is at the whim of the powers that be and you better play along, vote the right way and not make waves or the law will come down on you. Just ask Dinesh.

    No hard evidence of him being more conservative than his father or brother. Although, he did use his veto pen fairly aggressively at first causing even (R) state legislators to howl because they had thought that it was time for their pork projects to be given a share with a fellow (R) governor. My point was that even if he is to the right for a Bush, he is no conservative. He is still a big government Rockefeller Republican.

    Unless “moderate” simply means “to the left of Ted Cruz”

    Well, I guess Jeb may very well be to the right of his father or brother. But, unless "conservative" simply means "being the most conservative of the Bush family" he would not meet the definition for most true conservatives. Jeb is still a big government Republican. Just because he has the (R) behind his name does not make him conservative.

    Personally, barring any unforeseen circumstances, I am voting for Ted Cruz in 2016. It does not matter whether he is on the ballot. If he is, I will be happy knowing that the Republican establishment has been beaten back by the grassroots conservatives. If he is not, he will be my write-in vote. I am done voting for the lesser of the evils. I have not voted "for" a presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan. Since then it has been a vote against the other guy. It hasn't been working. It is time to vote "for" a candidate again.

    Who of the potential Democratic candidates is to the left of Obama? I don’t even think Bernie Sanders is to his left and he may even hate America less.

I will not vote for Bush, Christie or Romney even I it means that Hillary or Bernie win. I just won’t vote for the candidate that gives us more of the same even if the initial after their name is different.

    Armando Guerra to House Atreides

    I am reminded of the reaction when Nixon refused to spend all the money for a program, the practice of impoundment that was started by Jefferson. The U.S. Supreme Court, in Train v. City of New York, 420 U.S. 35, 95 S. Ct. 839, 43 L. Ed. 2d 1 (1975), ruled that President Nixon could not order the impoundment of substantial amounts of environmental protection funds for a program he vetoed, which had been overridden by Congress. The president cannot frustrate the will of Congress by killing a program through impoundment. Isn’t Obama frustrating the will of Congress by refusing to enforce duly passed laws?

    I disagree. The worst case scenario is not the worst case scenario. I fully expect the Democrats to squeak out “unexpected” wins to retain the Senate. Rampant voter fraud is ignored by the media who claim that poor polling data and improving economic conditions undid the Republicans. McConnell and Boehner say that the people have spoken and bend over even more to accommodate Obama. Whatever they don’t give Obama he takes by executive action. Millions of illegals are granted amnesty by mid November. This is the worst case scenario and, sadly, most likely.

    Guaranteed Minimum Income. One of the many very bad economic ideas pushed by.......Richard Nixon!

    According to Cato: “The federal government spent $3.9 trillion in 2013, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Transfers were the largest spending activity at $1.98 trillion, followed by purchases at $571 billion, aid to the states at $510 billion, interest at $414 billion, and compensation at $407 billion."

    Let’s see, $1.98 trillion divided by 112 million households is $17,679 currently being provided per household on transfers without even counting the compensation of all the staff administering that bureaucracy. Additionally, consider the disincentives of current means-tested benefits. I have personally heard people say that they had to quit a job after receiving notice that they would now lose benefits. The loss of benefits would have exceed the income from working. How many single-parent households are encouraged because of the loss of benefits if they were married to the baby-daddy? Maybe a minimum income wouldn’t be so bad after all. I'm starting to consider that it might be preferable to the myriad of welfare programs we have and the resulting disincentives.

    Armando Guerra to Gamecock
    I am a true believer in free markets and was an economics major in college. I cannot say whether I agree with the Pope because many of these "the Pope says..." articles deliberately twist and take his statements out of context. If he is against futures markets in general, I do not agree with him and think he is wrong on the subject and does not understand how they actually help keep prices down and stable. I will reserve judgment until I read his words and not just someone's interpretation.

    However, while I studied economics many years ago I no longer comprehend some markets. When I see the Debt Clock showing the credit derivatives default swap market at $730 TRILLION I start to think something is not right and the relation to real economic activity and some of these markets are just not there. (If someone could please explain the relation, I would appreciate being able to understand).

    I read "The Great American Bubble Machine" regarding Goldman Sachs and believe that there is a difference between free markets and the manipulated, not-so-free markets we have. If the Pope's intent was to point out the greed of financial market manipulators (usually the "too big to fail" bankers with the revolving door between Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue), then I would agree with him. If that was not his point then I don't agree with him. But, just saying that there are those in the financial markets who are in need of ethics does not make you a Marxist.

    I don't foresee an about-face by Obama. It is either that this is his intended consequence (taking America down from super-power status); or, that he is too full of himself to see that anything he does has a negative impact. Either way, no chance of a change in his policies.

    Where I do see a similarity with 1979 is in the fact that we are at a crossroads in our country. We need another Reagan. My money is on Cruz being the one although there are a couple of others who may also be able to turn the tide. If we end up with Hillary, Joe, Jeb or Christie, stick a fork in it because this country is in for a long nightmare.

  • Major Study Finds The US Is An Oligarchy

    04/16/2014 12:34:29 PM PDT · 15 of 31
    Armando Guerra to SpinnerWebb
    I’ve argued that we are a corporate oligarchy for years. Every politician is persuaded (controlled, paid off) by some corporate lobby or another.

    I agree with you. The question, however, is who is at fault? Is it the evil corporations corrupting the politicians with their dirty money? Or, is it the government syndicate shaking down the corporations in a pay to play situation?

    The reason to ask "who is at fault?" is because the belief of who is at fault drives the proposed solution. My concern is that when faced with the realization of a corporate oligarchy, most people tend to believe that it is the corporations that are to blame so what we need is a government that is bigger and more powerful than the corporations to reign them in. Personally, I believe it is the government that is to blame. The prime example was the anti-trust shakedown of Microsoft back in the day when they weren't playing along with the campaign donations and lobbying game.

    Big government, big business and big labor are all in bed with each other. However, only one of them can "legally" deprive you of life, liberty and property. Diminish the power of government and corporations and labor have to compete in the marketplace against their competitors rather than curry favor with the powers that be to take down rivals. Unfortunately, the result of this article about the oligarchy will be a push for more government which will only exacerbate the problem.

    The district was always won easily by Young on local and veteran’s issues. The GOP-e did their best to lose it by running only generic national issue advertisement. Jolly was able to win a slim victory because the democrats brought in a candidate from outside the district and also focused on generic national issues. If they had gone with a strong local democrat running on local issues they probably would have won. This goes to show that the democrat party machine can be equally as stupid as the republican party machine so should give some hope. The only thing that they proved themselves better at was voter fraud. While voting I witnessed an elderly DNC get out the vote worker leading a young Vietnamese lady from table to table to vote. She had one hand grasping her arm and the other hand on her should as she lead her around and said she had to help her because she didn’t speak English. Despite the poll worker pointing out that her signature didn’t match her driver’s license signature she was still handed a ballot. The poll worker told the DNC person they couldn’t accompany her to the voting machine so the DNC individual took the ballot, pointed to the bubble the lady had to mark, repeated it several times and then sent her to the machine. The poll workers witnessed this but allowed it to happen. Voter fraud does appear to be a DNC strength but campaign operations don’t appear to be any better than the GOP-e.

    Armando Guerra to Clintonfatigued

    You’ve got your candidates confused. Jolly was born and raised in the district. Sink lost the governor’s race and was then recruited by the DNC to run for Young’s vacant seat. She doesn’t live in the district and only rented a condo at the foot of the bridge to where she lives outside the district. When asked if she was actually planning on moving to the district even if she lost she gave the non-response of “I don’t plan to lose.” What is actually going on is the GOP-e sees that Jolly’s numbers don’t look favorable so they are leaking hit pieces to blame him for the loss. However, he is right to be critical of the ads that the GOP-e is running. Yes, Obamamcare is unpopular but they have saturated the airwaves with nothing but generic anti-Obamacare ads that are probably being run in every other district with GOP-e ads. Young would always win the district easily on local and veteran issues. Jolly was his assistant. Rather than seizing the mantel of Young and running as a local product and his heir, the GOP-e ran generic national issue ads. Young’s name and Jolly’s ties to him have gone unmentioned. Now, they are blaming Jolly for their attempt to impose on him what the “smarter” GOP-e consultants are saying how his campaign should run. Meanwhile, the carpet bagger will probably win. Since she won’t be representing the district because she has no ties there, she will just be representing Obama and Pelosi in congress. Talk about taxation without representation. Their was a better candidate than Jolly in the republican primaries, but Jolly would sure be better than Sink.

    I don’t agree with the plan that Cornyn was putting forward, but there is a point in that, ultimately, the solution to our immigration problem is having things improve in Mexico. I’ve always wondered why Walmart had to go to China for cheap labor when Mexico was right next door. The Mexicans could make more money than the Chinese and still undercut them because of reduced transportation costs. Yes, Mexico is corrupt but so is China. China has become wealthy being Walmart’s supplier yet the Mexicans continue languishing. Until things improve in Mexico we will have them continue to try to come here.

  • A Winning Alternative to Obamacare ["pave the way for full repeal"]

    Armando Guerra to Balding_Eagle

    I really was impressed with the Whole Foods approach when the article was published. I also pulled up some numbers from the government after reading the article. At the time ObamaCare was being debated, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services had government expenditures per person on health care of $3866 per year. Also at that time, the Federal Benefits Handbook was offering nation wide a high deductible plan that included covered preventive medical, vision and dental care services paid at 100% in network along with prescription benefits at $3216.46 per year. In other words, the government could have just bought everyone in the country a high deductible plan and saved about $200 billion that could have been used to assist low income persons with their deductibles. Personally, I’ve been an advocate of the FairTax plan where the prebates would be paid into a health savings account and you could access funds above your deductible. This would provide incentive to control health care costs which none of the other plans have.

  • Should Republicans Embrace Universal Healthcare?

    01/31/2014 10:07:49 AM PST · 36 of 47
    Armando Guerra to SeekAndFind

    If universal coverage had been the goal of Obamacare it sure could have been done cheaper and better. When the Whole Foods article came out basically advocating high deductible plans with health savings account during the debate I did a little research and crunched numbers. Based on what the CMS reported was the per capita expenditure on medical care by the government and what the OPM had as a high deductible plan they offered in every state, I calculated that the government could have bought everyone in the country a high deductible plan and still have saved $200 billion per year. That was before Obamacare was passed. Now we have spent hundreds of billions and have even more uninsured. I think control and not universal coverage is the true goal.

    Unless something drastic happens, it may already be over but for the wake. Right now, she is the clear favorite and the GOP-e is going to do everything possible to put Christie on the top of the ticket in the glorious tradition of Dole, McCain and Romney.

    Thanks. That’s the best political news I have seen in a while. I hope it succeeds, although I fear we have already past the tipping point where the takers out number the givers. I think going Galt only feeds into what the Alinskyites want, so secession would be the next step. I have no faith in the 1 1/2 party system (at best) that we currently have.

    So we have Walker, Cruz, Lee, and Palin as possible candidates for POTUS in 2016.

    Which just means Hillary will be defeating the Christie/McConnell ticket the Republicans nominate.

    AMENDMENT XXX (Marriage Defined)

    Marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of alternative unions to marriage. State established alternative unions to marriage shall not be imposed upon other states. No marriage benefits established by Congress may be provided to alternative unions.

    Section 2. Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed 18 percent of the gross domestic product of the United States for the calendar year ending before the beginning of such fiscal year, unless two-thirds of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress shall provide by law for a specific amount in excess of such 18 percent by a roll call vote.

    Section 3. Prior to each fiscal year, the President shall transmit to the Congress a proposed budget for the United States Government for that fiscal year in which--

Any bill that imposes a new tax or increases the statutory rate of any tax or the aggregate amount of revenue may pass only by a two-thirds majority of the duly chosen and sworn Members of each House of Congress by a roll call vote. For the purpose of determining any increase in revenue under this section, there shall be excluded any increase resulting from the lowering of the statutory rate of any tax.

  • Two Major Fact Checkers Are Saying President Obama Isn’t Telling You the Full Truth

    Armando Guerra to Cincinatus' Wife

    Politifact gave the “Lie of the Year” award to Sarah Palin for the death panels. They still haven’t retracted that. This just shows that even Politifact has reached its limit on carrying water for this administration to still be able to feign the slightest bit respectability. Although, if they were really concerned about the truth they will be giving the “You can keep your plan” the lie of the decade award and retracting the Sarah Palin award.

  • $1.1T: CMS Sets Record for Annual Spending by a Federal Agency

    11/05/2013 4:41:58 AM PST · 4 of 5
    Armando Guerra to Olog-hai

    That’s over $3500 per year for every man, woman and child spent by the Federal government and does not include the over $400 Billion that is spent by government at the State and local level. Until recently when ObamaCare started killing the market, a high deductible health plan that included free annual check-ups for medical, dental and vision, as well as free immunizations, was about $3500 per year. Imagine, without the bureaucracy and need for a 2700 page bill the government could simply have given everyone a voucher for a high deductible plan which they could get as a minimum and we could have had true universal health coverage at enormous savings. What people normally spend on health insurance premiums could just be paid into a health savings account to cover the deductibles.

  • The Tea Party Wants to Win

    Armando Guerra to servo1969

    To quote Reagan: “Here’s my strategy on the Cold War: we win, they lose.” I’m old enough to remember what the GOP-e thought of Reagan. The GOP-e then thought he was a reckless cowboy as much as the Democrats did for confronting the communists rather than trying to get along. The GOP-e of today are still wanting to get along with the communists and vilify anyone (Sen. Cruz and the Tea Party) who prefer to win instead of trying to get along. Unfortunately, the communists of today control the Democrat Party and sit in the White House.
