OK Court says "No" to 10 Commandments

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publishers note:  Interesting that this is not getting front page news, more interesting to me is that there is no mention in the story that one of the groups suing to have their own edifice installed is the satanic temple of New York.  Additionally, you can bet no one would be lifting a finger if this were any sort of item associated with the “big gay” agenda.

The contrast is stunning to me that last Friday, the WH was emblazoned with the colors of the rainbow, and they were planning on tearing down the 10 Commandments in OK at the same time.

There are two excerpts from the Fox/AP story below…

#1.  “An Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds must be removed because it violates the state’s constitutional ban on using public property to benefit religion.

The court said the Ten Commandments chiseled into the 6-foot-tall granite monument, which was privately funded by a Republican legislator, are “obviously religions in nature and are an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.”

#2.  “Since the original monument was erected in 2012, other groups have asked to put up their own monuments on Capitol grounds. Among the groups asked to put up a monument include a Hindu leader and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.”

We are officially sodom and gemorrah

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher's note:  Not unexpected, but a very sad day for America.  Not only is this decision a tragedy, it leaves no question that our representative form of government is officially over.  We the People overwhelmingly voted against this, they couldn’t legislate it, so they had SCOTUS ram it down our throat.  

So let’s see, SCOTUS forced health care…check; SCOTUS forced “acceptance” of the gay agenda…check; SCOTUS complete erasure of the 2nd Amendment…NEXT.

Fox News:  “The Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states. 

Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. But in a 5-4 ruling, the court held that the 14th Amendment requires states to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples and to recognize such marriages performed in other states. 

The ruling means the remaining 14 states that did not allow such unions, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans.”

Distracted and screwed again by potus...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

So while we were all glued to Hillary announcing that she’s running for POTUS again, the Dallas PD Headquarters being shot up and the perp killed, Jurassic World opened to audiences, and keeping his campaign “promise” churning, POTUS opened the doors of Gitmo once again to release six more really bad dudes.

“Six detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention center, including two alleged Usama bin Laden bodyguards, have been transferred to Oman, the Pentagon said Saturday.”

I never cease to be stunned by his hubris and total lack of regard for the safety of US Citizens and military personnel, not to mention the combined Congress’ complete failure in stopping him.

Disgusted I am, disgusted with the whole lot of them.  Yeah, the election of 2014 made a big difference.

John Tyler, 10th POTUS, living grandchildren

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Okay, I don’t care who you are, this is just plain interesting, if not amazing.  John Tyler, the 10th President of the U.S. has two living grandsons.  

I’d venture to guess that most people would have to check a history book to even prove to themselves that he was the president at one time….back in 1841 to be exact.  

So how exactly does a man, Mr. President, who was born in 1790, have surviving grandchildren?

It goes like this.  The Tyler men have a tendency to procreate often and later in years, and Mr. President started that by siring 15 children.  One of those children, Lyonwas born in 1853 when the president was 63.  Lyon also had a gaggle of children.  Two of those children are Lyon, Jr. and Harrisonborn in 1924 and 1928 respectively.  

Both are still alive as of this date.  I just love historical trivia, don’t you?

We're drowning in debt....save the Sage Grouse!!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in National News

Publisher’s note:  I really believe that POTUS must have some sort of standing orders in the WH to bring him a daily dose of nonsense that he can choose from to twist into his destructive agenda.  

At a time when we are, among other things, near financial ruin and in desperate need of being energy independent, they found another critter to save that prevents the tapping of our resources.  

I guess it’s understandable though.  I cannot remember the last time I was at a social gathering when the plight of the Greater Sage Grouse wasn’t on everyone’s mind.  

Give me a break!

Fox News:  The Obama administration disclosed plans Thursday to preserve the habitat of the imperiled greater sage grouse in 10 Western states that would include placing limits on oil and natural gas drilling.

The proposal would be the federal government's biggest land-planning effort to date for conservation of a single species. The regulations would require oil and gas wells to be clustered in groups of a half-dozen or more to avoid scattering them across habitat of the greater sage grouse. 

Drilling near breeding areas would be prohibited during mating season, and power lines would be moved away from prime habitat to avoid serving as perches for raptors that eat sage grouse.

The new measures would apply to federal lands in California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.
