Economist: The American Fiscal House Is Ready to Fall

Some pretty dire testimony before Congress was reported by CNS News: ” Economist Tells Congress: U.S. May Be in ‘Worse Fiscal Shape’ Than Greece.” The U.S. has a $210 trillion “fiscal gap” and “may well be in worse fiscal shape than any developed country, including Greece,” Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff told members of the Senate Budget Committee in written and oral testimony on Feb.

Does the U.S. Constitution require same-sex marriage? No, the U.S. Constitution requires the Court to leave this issue to the states. If you believe otherwise, then amend the Constitution. Tweet to @Frank_Turek The Supreme Court is about to decide if the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution requires the states to redefine marriage to include same-sex relationships.

Conservative Student Group Commits ‘Act of Violence’ for Defending Christian Values, Refusing to Participate in LGBT Sensitivity Training

A conservative student group at The George Washington University faces punishment, including the loss of its funding, for refusing to engage in LGBT sensitivity training on campus. The students are now being condemned and attacked on campus by those who claim they’re committing an “act of violence” for standing up for their members’ individual rights and Judeo-Christian values.

I wonder how those same LGBT community groups would respond if they faced a loss their funding if they did not attend a Christian sensitivity training course? Why is it that only those who disagree with a POLITICALLY correct position are somehow hateful but those who disagree with a long-held societal norm are not? Doesn’t the demand for the ouster or the defunding of a long-standing organization or business qualify as intolerant? After all the only reason they are being protested or targeted is because those who are targeting them disagree with their viewpoints.

The evolution of shower dangers: from hot water to just too much

The EPA is in the news for wanting to monitor how long hotel guests spend in the shower, which one critic says is not a new idea from the federal agency. “We’ve seen this movie before,” says Bonner Cohen of the National Center for Public Policy Research.


If You Drink Coffee From Pods, You May Want to Reconsider

“I don’t have one. They’re kind of expensive to use,” John Sylvan told me frankly, of Keurig K-Cups, the single-serve brewing pods that have fundamentally changed the coffee experience in recent years. “Plus it’s not like drip coffee is tough to make.” Which would seem like a pretty banal sentiment, were Sylvan not the inventor of the K-Cup.

I get a big kick out of all these environmental loons who strain at gnats to swallow camels. Now I do not know how it is where you live but tiny plastic cups are not a HUGE problem since our landfills are being filled everyday with HUGE PLASTIC garbage bags of stuff. Every retail store in America hands out millions of plastic bags every day oh how I pine for the olden days of paper bags.

However, this non-problem was starting to take care of itself through the market since reusable K-cups were invented and being used, so much so that Keurig designed a second generation brewer that would only take K-cups to continue the use of these expensive coffee pods.

If You Wonder Why Businesses in Your State Are Struggling Next Year, You Can Blame This

You may not realize that air quality has improved dramatically over the past few decades.

Court to lesbian couple: Fatherhood can’t be contractually erased

A lesbian couple in New Jersey may be forced to share parental rights with a sperm donor they used to conceive their 1-year-old son. Sheena and Tiara Yates are appealing a September court ruling that awarded visitation rights to a private sperm donor they hoped would have no relationship with their child.

Things are bound to get worse as families are becoming even more fractured as courts, and not biology, decides what constitutes a parent, or for that matter a family.

As hard as they try a man-made contract does not negate the laws of nature and of natures God. You see to reproduce you need a FATHER and a MOTHER. Two mommies can not have a baby nor can two daddies. In order for them to reproduce they need a third member of the opposite sex to procreate. The introduction of that third-party into a marriage which is supposed to be between two people opens up the door to all kinds of legal issues both now and well into the future.

Let’s see what happens when the infant child of three parents gets old enough to decide for themselves whom they consider to be their ACTUAL parents. Will biology or contracts rule the day?

Sin Killed the American Dream

The American Dream used to include thoughts of retirement, where one could live off the fruits of a lifetime of toil and enjoy family, friends, and maybe a bit of travel to see the world. Now, many of us have absolutely no thought of ever stopping, and will be in the workforce until no one will pay us anymore.
