| Political Talk|| Would it be constitutional for a state to promote natural marriage? - GumboPot on 8/20/14 at 8:09 am|
Now that egalitarianism is sweeping the nation and anybody will soon be able to "marry" their monkey's uncle, thus essentially making the term "marriage" meaningless, would state passed legislation promoting natural marriage violate the 14th?
For example, could at state offer tax credits to natu...

Apparently squashing ISIS is morally okay.
I'm down with it. I was down with it before the Vatican. However I understand the Vatican's measured approach. They don't want to inflame other Christian areas around the world surrounded by muslims that might turn into more killing fields.

Whether amnesty means millions of work permits or pardoning millions of illegals though and executive order if Obama acts before the midterm election in November I predict a very angry and motivated electorate that will vote AGAINST the democrats. It's not a difficult prediction to make when you ha...

| Political Talk|| The GOP House should tie minimum wage to the CPI. - GumboPot on 7/28/14 at 11:51 am|
Obviously the Dems and Reps cannot come to agreement on what the minimum wage should be, so I suggest that the GOP house pass a bill and tie the federal minimum wage to the CPI which would adjust automatically annually (this also includes downward adjustments during deflationary times). This will ac...
