Historic Decision By the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Hands Natural Marriage Supporters a Huge Victory!

On Thursday, in a 2-1 decision, a judicial panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit reversed district court rulings that had struck down homosexual “marriage” bans in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

Because this very important decision for supporters of natural marriage runs counter to decisions by four other appeals courts, the United States Supreme Court will undoubtedly decide in January to finally make a decision as to whether the states have the constitutional right to make laws on traditional marriage and banning homosexual “marriages.”  If the high court does take up the issue, it is expected to be the very last decision issued by the Supreme Court next June.

The judges in the majority  --  both appointed by President George W. Bush  --  were Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Sutton and Circuit Court Judge Deborah Cook.  In the 42-page decision, Judge Sutton, writing for the majority, argued that all of the circuit court judges overturning the state constitutional bans on homosexual “marriages” should not have overturned such amendments because of the Supreme Court’s ruling in 1972 which “upheld the right of the people of a state to define marriage as they see it.”

Will GOP Leaders Become Bob Michelized?

The 1994 election provides a beacon of hope for Republicans in Congress.  Voters in the historical mid-term election gave control of the United States House of Representatives to the Republicans for the first time in 40 years.  The last time the Republicans gained control of the House was when Dwight David Eisenhower won his overwhelming victory over Adlai Stevenson in 1952.

Senate Republicans also regained control of the Senate from 1953 to 1955, just as the Republicans in the House did.  While House Republicans were in the political wilderness for the next 40 years, President Ronald Reagan’s two landslides in 1980 and 1984 gave Republicans control of the Senate for six years.

The reason the U.S. Congress was controlled by the Democrats for most of the 40 years prior to the 1994 election can best be personified by the long-time minority  --  emphasis on minority  --  leader, Congressman Bob Michel, a very kind and genial man, but a highly ineffective leader.  Congressman Michel was perfectly content to accept crumbs from the Democrat spending feast.  If the Democrats promised a cut of $1 dollar in federal spending for every $1 tax increase  --  a highly unlikely proposal since they normally wanted more tax increases --  you can bet the spending cuts would not materialize following the tax increases because of decades of weak Republican leadership.

It's NOT the economy stupid

The Silence of The Lame--AARP

Oakley, California - The powerful AARP purports to be an organization that assists senior citizens and represents their interests in Washington, D.C. when bills are proposed that affect them. However, this premise is built on sand shifting in the liberal tides.

In reality, the AARP is a front for the democrat/socialist agenda to undermine America. The millions of seniors who are members fund these plans with their dues money. A major part of that is the socialist health plan which would restrict medical treatment of seniors and withhold life saving procedures for those elders who are considered a drain on society and who are no longer useful to the Party.

Why has AARP failed to make a statement opposing this since they are presumed to protect seniors who will, with this plan, be harmed and face premature death?

Reducing Barack Obama's Unsustainable Deficit Act

The American people are beginning to get scared.  The Congress is piling up unprecedented levels of debt and annual deficits. President Barack Obama's programs have already quadrupled the deficit for this fiscal year (2009) with his stimulus package and his deficit for this year will be a whopping $2 trillion.  President Obama's $3.6 trillion budget will have created more debt that all the previous 43 presidents put together.

That is why the American people are alarmed and why the president's approval ratings are dropping like a rock.  Some 51% of the American people have no confidence in the president's ability to fix the economy.

The Chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of over 100 conservative Republicans in the United States House of Representatives, Georgia Congressman Tom Price, said this week about President Obama's policies: "After six months, it's now clear that President Obama's economic policies aren't producing an economic recovery.  In addition to the $787 billion so-called stimulus package, the Democrats have handed billions of taxpayers' dollars to the auto industry, the mortgage industry, financial institutions, and more.  All the President has to show for his efforts are mounting job losses and the largest deficit in history, an estimated $1.85 trillion in Fiscal Year 2009."

Yes, Palin Did Stop That Bridge

Yes, Palin Did Stop That Bridge
By JIM DEMINT
September 10, 2008

"But, you know, when you've been taking all these earmarks when it's convenient, and then suddenly you're the champion anti-earmark person, that's not change. Come on! I mean, words mean something, you can't just make stuff up." -- Barack Obama, Sept. 6, 2008

In politics, words are cheap. What really counts are actions. Democrats and Republicans have talked about fiscal responsibility for years. In reality, both parties have a shameful record of wasting hundreds of billions of tax dollars on pork-barrel projects.

In God They Trusted

There is a movement today that seeks to have "In God We Trust" taken off of our American currency. Those heading the move say that putting God on our money violates the separation of church and state championed by Thomas Jefferson. This movement says that the founders of our country were not really Christians or godly men. They often use Thomas Jefferson as an example. However, there was not a single member of the Continental Congress that did not acknowledge Jesus Christ as God and God as their protector. The Congress even funded the printing of 20,000 copies of the Bible after King George began an embargo against Bibles being imported into the American Colonies. George Washington wrote a letter of gratitude to the printer for the effort.
