No one is surprised by this, because of two words in your story: "majority" and "scientific." The GOTeaP doesn't believe in either of those two things. Well, unless they're in the majority and "scientific" is followed by something like "hocus-pokus" or "hooey" or "blasphemy."
I think what Land is saying is that we should keep sexual orientation out of the workplace, unless it's a HETEROsexual orientation. That's what they're all saying -- straight is the only sexual orientation that matters, and if you aren't straight, you don't deserve any protections at all.
Wish you guys here at Pith would start posting transcripts of these things. I'd rather read it than watch it. If I watch it, I have to turn my speakers on.
Just a thought.
And here I thought Marsha and Zach would be meeting the FEMA people at the border, locked 'n' loaded.
"There was also some irritation that, even with all the talk of needing to cut and sacrifice, that there was still money in the budget for fish hatcheries but not for some mental health services."
Then how come the Dems never TALK about stuff like this? Whenever the tough issues come up, it seems like our representatives in the Statehouse would rather just abstain or not vote or whatever rather than act like they give a damn.
Guys, if you're irritated, then DO SOMETHING about it. Vote *against* stupid stuff, rather than just not voting for it.
Disgruntled Turner Constituent
The Washington Post, huh? I didn't know they had constitutional lawyers on their editorial staff.
Medicare is not mandatory. You can opt out. However, if you decide later that you want Medicare, you have to pay a higher premium.
Personally, I'm not fond of the idea of a personal mandate either. Single-payer universal coverage is my first choice. Unfortunately, that wasn't an option. But I agree with Attorney General Cooper in that federal law trumps state law. And if the stupid legislature doesn't understand that they shouldn't go around filing frivilous lawsuits and wasting taxpayers' money over something that's purely political, then they don't deserve to be in office.
"IS." Darn tiny little type. "...is getting elected..."
