  • What the oath of office means to clerk Kim Davis

    09/04/2015 7:37:31 AM PDT · by formerRepublicant · 38 replies
    Newsday ^ | 9-3-15 | Noah Feldman
    What's in an oath? That fascinating question arose as part of a crusade by Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk Kim Davis to seek a religious exemption from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. Before the U.S. Supreme Court put the kibosh on her claim, Davis in her legal brief argued that she understood her oath of office "to mean that, in upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws, she would not act in contradiction to the moral law of God." Why? Because her oath included the words, "So help me God." Of course, the oath of office prescribed by the...
  • Its time to vote straigh Democratic ticket [Zot!]

    I can say without an iota of hesitation or regret that I will cast a ballot for a Democrat for only the third time in my 26 years of voting. The only Democrats I ever voted for were Ann Richards for governor on TX against that quack Clayton Williams and for Lloyd Bentsen for Senator from TX. Due to my total disgust with the way the Federal and the state governments have conducted themselves and how they have failed to act in the interest of this country, I will proudly vote a straight Democrat ticket this year and as a...
  • Zotted Trolls Love Socialism is the best form of government (and here why)

    Socialism is best because under socialism. No one has to worry about being poor or starving to death. No one is poor, unemployed, discriminated, everyone is equal reguardless or race or creed. Today such ideas are condemned as evil. Any attempt to protest against slavery and genocide and human rights violations are met with the cries of COMMUNISM! By the religious right and then they conjure up stories about Stalin, Gulags, tortue, police state etc. So therefore we must stick with the current system of sweat shop slavery, poverty and racism while rich people who already have all they will...

    George W. Bush has talked openly about accomplishing the New World Order, which is a worldwide government that will lead to antichrist's rule and reign. In his Second Inaugural Address on January 20, 2005, President Bush said that he invaded Afghanistanand Iraq because he was attempting to complete an Ancient Plan based on an “Ancient Hope”, a Plan called the “New Order of the Ages”. His father, George Bush, while president, said on Sept 11th, 1990, that we are on the dawn of a "New World Order". That was 11 years TO THE DAY of 9/11/2001. Grandpa Bush, Prescott, was...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    12/31/2005 3:18:44 PM PST · by floridaobserver · 88 replies · 2,602+ views
    Looking closely at the life of Muhammad, we find that he was a superstitious man and many of his superstitions became part of the religion that originated with him – Islam. One aspect in which this is manifest is in his attitude toward dogs. He made a number of irrational comments about dogs. His beliefs on dogs may have come from various sources such as cultural bias, pagan concepts, demonic influences, or perhaps from his own imagination. In any case they portray a man ascribing to superstition. His perspective concerning dogs is somewhat bizarre and deserves a close examination. From...

Derr is a satanic ritual performed in this country long ago by the Canaanites, the Perezites, the Gurgashites, the Ammorites, the Moabites and the Hittites. It involved taking a stick from a wheat tree and sticking it up your nose while shouting, "Hey mom! Ship ahoy! There...

    I have been arguing with stupid libs for two days saying that Bush committed no crime because under the provisions of the USSID 18 and the FSIA, he could with perfect legitimacy eavesdrop on aliens involved in terrorist activities if he had AG approval. However, what was puzzling is that Gonzales did not cite USSID 18; he cited the more dubious rationale of war powers approval. This would seem to indicate that Bush was spying on US citizens without a Court Order which clearly violates USSID 18 and the FSIA, and was using war powers approval to cover for it....

When Bush Sr. pulled out of Iraq it was for the same reason America pulled out of Vietnam. There would have been no argument about whether Saddam had "weapons of mass destruction" back then. He did have them, and he used them on Iraqis who had helped the Americans in the Gulf War. You see, the Americans made a deal with a large number of Iraqis that they would help them...

    It is not only possible, it is now likely. Iran has announced it will open an oil bourse in the coming months, with payment in Euros accepted. The significance of this for geopolitics cannot be overstated. The dollar enjoys its status as the world's reserve currency because currently every nation has to exchange its currency for dollars to buy oil. This creates an artificial demand for dollars. That demand helps to prop the dollar up. China, Russia, and to a lesser extent, Europe, all want this to change. Some Arab nations also want it to change, because as the situation...

    This pledge drive is going way too slowly for my comfort. Please donate now! What if we lose Free Republic? Where else are we going to find a group of people who show unquestioned support for a President with 35% approval ratings? Whao is going to organize the "Free Tom Delay" and "Free Karl Rove" protest rallies? If everyone would just donate $1.99 (the price of a 6 pack of Pabst, as you all are aware) we can lick this thing. So donate. What's more important, your country or your beer?

    "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." (Matthew 5:38-42, NIV). "But I say...

    I have been talking to people about the Republican Liberty Caucus, but I have been having a hard time explaining the issue to people. Our statements of principle have always centered around smaller government and proptecting our rights. A surprisingly small majority of Americans support these two principles, but it's enough to form a political movement. The RLC has its own statement of principles, and its own conventions. Members are not expected to tow the party line, especially for RINO's. I believe that we should sell the RLC as a separate political group that supports libertarians, constitutionalists, reform party members,...
