WASHINGTON – Four years ago, Barack Obama was undecided about the legality of same-sex marriages.Two years ago, he said he personally supports same-sex marriage, but that each state should decide for itself.As of today, his views have changed again – stating, in an interview with the New Yorker, that the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriages in all 50 states.“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause [of the U.S. Constitution] does guarantee same-sex marriage in all 50 states,” Obama said. “But, as you know, courts have always been strategic. There have been times where the stars were aligned and the Court, like a thunderbolt, issues a ruling like Brown v. Board of Education, but that’s pretty rare. And, given the direction of society, for the Court to have allowed the process to play out the way it has may make the shift less controversial and more lasting.”The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has been repeatedly cited by judges in the vast majority of the 46 pro-equality rulings that have come from state and federal courts since the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act last year – a law that was overwhelmingly enacted by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.Obama said he thinks the biggest decision of the U.S. Supreme Court during his presidency was the its recent decision to pass the buck on same-sex marriage.“In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-sex marriage may end……………….MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Down With the Presidency
The presidency must be destroyed. It is the primary evil we face, and the cause of nearly all our woes. It squanders the national wealth and starts unjust wars against foreign peoples that have never done us any harm.
It wrecks our families, tramples on our rights, invades our communities, and spies on our bank accounts. It skews the culture towards decadence and trash. It tells lie after lie. Teachers used to tell schools kids that anyone can be president.
This is like saying anyone can go to Hell. It’s not an inspiration; it’s a threat.The presidency — by which I mean the executive state — is the sum total of American tyranny. The other branches of government, including the presidentially appointed Supreme Court, are mere adjuncts.
The presidency insists on complete devotion and humble submission to its dictates, even while its steals the products of our labor and drives us into economic ruin. It centralizes all power unto itself, and crowds out all competing centers of power in society, including the church, the family, the business, the charity, and the community.
I’ll go further. The U.S. presidency is the world’s leading evil. It is the chief mischief-maker in every part of the globe, the leading wrecker of nations, the usurer behind third-world debt, the bailer-out of corrupt governments, the hand in many dictatorial gloves, the sponsor and sustainer of the New World Order, of wars, interstate and civil, of famine and disease.
To see the evils caused by the presidency, look no further than Iraq or Serbia, where the lives of innocents were snuffed out in pointless wars, where bombing was designed to destroy civilian………….MORE!

Get Bosses Out of Health Insurance Altogether: This Will Make Hobby Lobby a Non-IssueNational Review ^ | 07/08/2014 | Michael TannerPosted on 7/9/2014, 10:08:13 AM by SeekAndFindThe Supreme Court’s decision last week in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby has pushed all the buttons that could be expected when sex and religion intersect.
But there’s big news in a dissent that accompanied this denial, declaring that big change is underway for religious liberty.

What comes to mind when thinking about guns and Afro-Americans? The media typically portray blacks as either criminals or anti-gun activists. Here is a glimpse into the real story.
