    LATINO & BLACK AMERICANS - FOR GOD'S SAKE, WAKE UP! The pivotal election of 2012 is over. The most liberal, progressive candidate in the history of American politics, with the worst record on the economy in his first term, Barack Hussein Obama, won re-election to a second term by 1.5-2.0% of the vote. The over-riding segments of the population that enabled his victory were the Black vote (who voted for him by over 90%) and the Latino vote (who voted for him by over 70%).

    From what’s being reported Rush Limbaugh said about Sandra Fluke he owes the young lady an apology. Just on the basic issue of good manners if nothing else. However, that’s not the part of the larger story that interests me. I’m simply terribly confused as to why anyone at all would want contraception to be part of a heath care insurance scheme... [Snip] Just for a moment, for the purposes of my argument here, leave aside whether a Jesuit organisation really should be forced to provide contraception...[Snip] I’m interested purely and simply in the use of an insurance model as...
