Gay Marriage, Lawyers and Simple Arithmetic

Post to Twitter

The supreme court recently declined to rule of gay marriage and the media went crazy with headlines about the enormous victory for gay rights and gay people. Many observers of the court were stunned that the justices passed up reviewing lower-court decisions that overturned prohibitions on same-sex marriage in five states, delaying a decision that would answer the question for the nation.

With all of the clamour and protests from the gay community, the supreme court not ruling on decisions was more of a defeat than a victory, because there are five states that overturned gay marriage and the supreme court ruling let the rulings by the lower courts in those five states stand as overturned.

But there are a few good reasons for the religious right to embrace gay marriage. The first that stands out in my mind is simple arithmetic. By allowing gay marriage, Americans can quickly and decisively dispell the propaganda by the LGBT community about the actual number of homosexual people in America.

The New York Times said that as of June, 2013 only 82,500 gay couples in all of America had “tied the knot.”

For a quick comparison, more then 120,000 hetrosexual marriages occured in Las Vegas in 2013 alone. Again simple arithmetic shows that the number of marriages in one city in a single year dwarfs the total number of gay marriages in 3 years across all of the states that allow gay marriage. Its a given that Las Vegas is one of the more popular places to get married, but I used Vegas as an example. If that many “straight” couples were married in one city, How many marriages occurred last year across America?

The media and the gay community have once again sold Americans a line of crap with gay marriage. They claim that 10% of Americans are gay or bi-sexual. In a country of 325 million (and 50 million illegal immigrants) there is no POSSIBLE way that only 165,000 of of the alleged 10% or 35 million gay people in America decided to get married.

Then there is the added benefit of gay divorce, which is the real reason why the ACLU and the American Bar Association are pushing for gay marriage in the first place. Lets face it. To Lawyers, its a whole new arena for litigation. Can you imagine all that fighting and bickering between two gay people that will keep the divorce in the courts for years? All the lawyer fees as the gay couple fights over custody of the cat and the goldfish? When its all said and done, the only people that will benefit from gay marriage are lawyers and real estate agents who will make billions dividing and selling off all the property to pay for the gay marriage in the first place.

Good stuff indeed. I am always behind equality in America. If I have to give up half of all that I own because I divorce, why shouldn’t gay people have to do the same? JD

Al Qaeda militants fire rocket towards U.S. embassy in Yemen , say revenge for drone strike

Post to Twitter

Al-Qaeda-On-The-Run
An al Qaeda splinter group launched a rocket attack on the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Saturday, injuring several guards, to retaliate for what it said on social media was a U.S. drone strike in a northern province the day before.

The attacker fired the rocket from a M72 light anti-tank weapon from a car before speeding away, a police source told Reuters.

Several hours after the attack, Ansar al-Sharia, an affiliate of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said on its Twitter account it had targeted the embassy with a rocket, injuring several guards and damaging a vehicle.

The group said the attack was revenge for a drone strike on Friday that had seriously wounded children in the northern al Jawf province.

Tribal sources confirmed that a drone strike killed two al Qaeda members and wounded two more in al Jawf on Friday, and that there were reports of some children having been wounded.

The United States regularly uses drones to attack Islamist militants in countries such as Yemen as part of a strategy to combat al Qaeda militants without committing troops on the ground.

Washington acknowledges using drones in Yemen but does not comment publicly on the practice. Al Qaeda in Yemen, including AQAP and its affiliates, are among the most active wings of the network founded by Osama bin Laden.

The colossal blunders that have created Obama’s ‘war’ with ISIS

Post to Twitter

I just wanted to put down a few thoughts here about Obama and ISIS, and the problems the United States will have defending an enemy that walks among us all right here in America.

First and foremost, Obama and Obama alone is responsible for the inception of ISIS. Remember it was Obama that wanted to get all of the troops out of the region so that he could say he got all the troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

This was all for one reason for Obama. His poll numbers and nothing more. Listening to the liberals and their proclaimations all over social media about it was a real hoot. However, the end result was the formation of ISIS and Caliphate, or the takover of the entire region by a group of madmen intent on killing anyone that did not believe as they believe.

It has reminded an old guy like me of a recent time in world history where this has happened before. Vietnam, Cambodia Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Richard Nixon pulled troops from Vietnam and Cambodia fell under the control of Pol Pot.

Pot presided over a totalitarian dictatorship that imposed a radical form of agrarian socialism on the country. His government forced urban dwellers to relocate to the countryside to work in collective farms and forced labor projects. The combined effects of executions, forced labor, malnutrition, and poor medical care caused the deaths of approximately 25 percent of the Cambodian population.

In all, an estimated 1 to 3 million people (out of a population of slightly over 8 million) died due to the policies of his four-year premiership.

Its a far cry from what’s going on in Iraq right now, but you get my point. When a country goes into another country, takes control and then simply walks away, there is bound to be a problem.

Obama and his lackeys in Washington knew this. They had to have known about ISIS all along. We cannot make a phone call anywhere in the world today where there isn’t some intelligence agency listening in on the conversation.

There are so many blunders Obama has made during his presidency that they are hard to count anymore, but this will probably stand out historically as the biggest blunder of all when its all over.

Obama has spent the majority of his presidency on a golf course. He does not even go to the daily staff meetings to keep up on world events because he would rather be golfing. There is no denying this. Liberals can sit about pontificating all over social media and main stream media all they want, but to date Obama has been the worst president in my 50 years on the planet.

Now here we all sit. Proud Americans with nothing to be proud of at the moment because a moron has run the country into the ground with his lack of interest of being president. There is a growing consensus among the media elite that believe that Obama never wanted to actually be president. He only wanted to enjoy the perks that come along with being president. Live life like a rock star.

Well Liberal America, Obama got what he wanted. What have you got out of the deal? ObamaCare? Three years later and we still don’t know if it will actually work because it is so unpopular the democrats won’t let Obama implement it into actual law.

Today when I run across anyone that defends Obama I just laugh and understand that they are the very same people that PT Barnum was talking about when he said “there is a sucker born every minute.” Because at this point, you really would have to be a sucker to believe anything that comes out of Obama’s mouth.

As far as I am concerned, Obama created ISIS. Leutenant Colenel Ralph Peters said it best when he said “Our allies don’t trust us, our enemies don’t fear us, and you can’t blame that on Bush.” He was incredibly accurate in his assessment of Obama, and he did it in one sentence. Obama and his apologist regime created this nightmare and have absolutely no clue as to how to bail us out. But hey, they can tell you how to swing a nine iron. JD

Kansas laywer in battle against Obama on illegal immigration

Post to Twitter

illegalaliens

As President Barack Obama prepares to announce major immigration policy changes, conservative attorney Kris Kobach is fighting a case in federal court he says has the potential to “torpedo” the president’s plans.

Kobach, the Republican secretary of state of Kansas, is an architect of laws in several states to combat illegal immigration. He is also the most prominent figure among a small group of lawyers working to punch legal holes in Obama’s immigration policies.

Obama has pledged to act alone in the face of congressional inaction on immigration reform, and an announcement could come in early September. Immigration advocates close to the White House are pressing for work permits and relief from deportation for up to 5 million people.

While opponents can’t craft a legal strategy until Obama lays out the specifics of his plan, Kobach is likely to be at the forefront of any battle.

“I think anybody inclined to challenge (Obama’s action) would either already know, or would ask around and find out, that Kobach is one of the main go-to guys,” said Michael Jung, a private lawyer in Dallas who has worked with Kobach.

Kobach, who is pursuing an existing lawsuit against the administration over a 2012 executive order Obama issued on immigration, said any new lawsuit would depend on what the administration rolled out.

But he made clear his distaste for unilateral White House action on immigration.

“In my opinion it really goes to the core of what America is about as a nation, we are a nation of laws,” Kobach told Reuters in an interview. “When you have this systematic violation of the law by official policy that’s really troubling. It just bothers me down to the very fiber of my being.”

Some legal experts say any legal challenges would have only slim chances of success. The biggest hurdle is proving “standing,” a requirement that the person bringing the suit show that they have been directly harmed.

ICE Releases Convicted Illegal Alien Murderers From Prison Across America

Post to Twitter

Those arguing for comprehensive immigration reform tend to characterize illegal immigrants as innocent undocumented economic refugees.

Many, perhaps most, are.

But an uncontrolled southern border also allows real bad guys to wade across the Rio Grande, criminals you would not want to meet up with even on the far side of bullet-proof glass.

illegal aliens flipping off American protesters

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 169 aliens with homicide-related convictions in 2013, according to an article by Jessica Vaughn at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Only one of them has subsequently left the country.

Nine releases were at ICE discretion. The remainder were released because the country they should be deported to is fussing about accepting them, or because of a Ninth Circuit Court of appeals ruling on bonding them out after six months of detention.

So even if you commit murder, you may not be deported.

The article says that the convicted murderers were booked out of detention facilities in 24 different states, with the largest number in California, according to information provided to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Senator Grassley asked ICE for more information about murderers particularly after CIS published a report describing how ICE freed 36,007 aliens with criminal convictions in 2013.
