Re: “Obama slams Republican senators for failing to fill Supreme Court opening

Grassley's only attraction for voters in Iowa is him being head of the ethanol mandate lobby and working with big argriculture like Monsanto to get handouts.

Re: “Obama slams Republican senators for failing to fill Supreme Court opening

The constitution is clear on this. A presidents term is only six and a half years.

Re: “Baltimore Sun drops paywall on coverage of riots

They need to google Bundy snipers and look at the pictures of the US government hating protesters training their weapons on law enforcement officers heads that came to serve a court order. Many have their wives and girlfriends standing next to them. Their spokesperson told Fox their plan was to put women in the line of fire to be shot in order to rile people up. The law agents took their court order and ran. That is how to deal with law enforcement.

Re: “Georgia drops religion bill after Indiana, Arkansas outcry

Our laws conflict with Gods wishes. The bible clearly spells out Gods wish for woman's role. We are told in Genesis that He said woman was made to be mans helper, and man is to rule over her.This theme is repeated through out thebible. Why do we have laws against promoting by gender? Businesses are punished for following His word.Business needs to fight for their religious rights.

Re: “Supreme Court already expanding Hobby Lobby ruling

Catholic employers need exemptions from immigration laws in order to follow their faith---"The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him." Catholic Catechism, 2241.

The second duty is to secure one’s border and enforce the law for the sake of the common good. Sovereign nations have the right to enforce their laws and all persons must respect the legitimate exercise of this right: "Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens." Catholic Catechism, 2241.

In January 2003, the U.S. Catholic Bishops released a pastoral letter on migration entitled, "Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope." In their letter, the Bishops stressed that, "[w]hen persons cannot find employment in their country of origin to support themselves and their families, they have a right to find work elsewhere in order to survive. Sovereign nations should provide ways to accommodate this right." No. 35. The Bishops made clear that the "[m]ore powerful economic nations…ave a stronger obligation to accommodate migration flows."

Re: “Post-Hobby Lobby: Now religionists want protection to discriminate against gays in employment

Should be interesting when Catholic employers start seeking religious exemptions to hire illegals----In January 2003, the U.S. Catholic Bishops released a pastoral letter on migration entitled, "Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope." In their letter, the Bishops stressed that, "[w]hen persons cannot find employment in their country of origin to support themselves and their families, they have a right to find work elsewhere in order to survive. Sovereign nations should provide ways to accommodate this right." No. 35. The Bishops made clear that the "[m]ore powerful economic nations…ave a stronger obligation to accommodate migration flows." No. 36.
