Robert B. Reich
“When Republicans recently charged the President with promoting 'class warfare,' he answered it was 'just math.' But it's more than math. It's a matter of morality.

Republicans have posed the deepest moral question of any society: whether we're all in it together. Their answer is we're not.

President Obama should proclaim, loudly and clearly, we are.”

Jim has it wrong again!

Jim, as usual we are on opposite sides. Judge Scalia does not understand the basic principle of the United States Constitution, let me repeat that a Supreme Court Justice does not understand the basic principle of the Constitution EQUALITY for all.
 It is sad and appalling that a man like Scalia would not stand up for the equality of all Americans Gay and straight. My gosh a happy gay person is a threat to whose freedom, am I missing something Jim. You see Scalia votes for the right of people to not have rights. Scalia is the one who paved the way for corporations to to provide unlimited money toward elections without having to disclose anything. Scalia's defense of corporations like General Electric and Koch Industries who by the way he went and sho guns at their exclusive hunting camp, but he did not exclusive himself like Kagen did. Scalia's stupid statement "it's one thin for a society to elect change ; it is another for a court of law to impose change" Wow!  Under his thinking then women would still not get the vote! Scalia and Thomas are an embarrassment.

 Jim as far as my Roman Catholic Church my faith is not in the Pope or his male minions, but in the belief of the truest line from Peter to now and it simply has it wrong on gays, and divorced, and male priests only.

 But I have faith in this: When you arrive at the pearly gates, the question won't be did you keep the commandments?
 The question will be "Did you feed the hungry? Did you clothe the naked? Did you love your neighbor no matter their religion ( yes that's Muslims too) Did you give without expecting a return?

Gay Marriage?


Good?  Bad?   

My preliminary.....It is about bias, bias.

To my knowledge....Gay's can enjoy the same rights as others, by legal maneuvers...designating  a POA, Wills, etc.  It is just more expensive...and therefore discriminatory.  Now they can be miserable like the rest of us!   Rod Stewart: "I'm not getting married again, I'm just going to find a woman I don't like and buy her a house".

Seems to me that a party who believes in freedom...mine...should believe in the right to be (especially legally) with who they wish. 

NOW ON THE OTHER HAND!...religious ideas (me not religious) are also due their rights...they may recognize their belief and should not be compelled to comply.

Course...I'm just one voice.   Don't reply to me...reply to the blog.

Terry!  Hope life is great!  You liberal dolt!  How you gonna reconcile your religion with your President?   I if full of choices.   Wait!...that is a baby!  Sorry...that won't work either.

expanding equality of opportunity increases inequality because some people are simply better able than others to exploit opportunities. And "assortive mating” — likes marrying likes — concentrates class advantages, further expanding inequality. As Muller said, “formal schooling itself plays a relatively minor role in creating or perpetuating achievement gaps” that originate “in the different levels of human capital children possess when they enter school.”
