Why America Is Failing – ‘Republicans Call Obama A Greater Threat To America Than Putin And Assad’

base1

obamas fault

It’s not the rank and file Republicans – your neighbors – that have fostered and supported this belief.

It’s FOX ‘news’ and the Republican leadership – from Sarah Palin, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and all the rest of the elected or highly regarded Republicans.

‘Why is America so politically divided? – BBC News’

President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States greater than Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, say a third of Republicans responding to a Reuters/Ipsos poll this month’.

‘2,809 Americans were asked to rate the threat level posed to the U.S. by several countries, organizations and individuals on a scale of 1 to 5 (one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat)’.

‘34% of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat to America (equal to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) – scoring him higher than Putin (25%), Assad (23%) and Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini (27%)’.

‘The only things Republicans found scarier than Obama were Islamic State (58%) and Al Qaeda (43%)’.

‘The findings of the poll reflect the dangers of polarization in U.S. politics identified by Pew Research in the Summer of 2014’.

‘In the largest political survey in its history – a poll of more than 10,000 adults between January and March of that year – Pew found that’:

“Republicans and Democrats are further apart ideologically than at any point in recent history”.

Another Day Of It’s Obama’s Fault – ‘GOP Ex-Gov: Obama’s ‘Inciting’ Birthers By Planning Trip To Kenya’

obamas fault sunnua

Obama going to Kenya incites those that think he was born there so ‘birtherism’ is Obama’s fault.

‘Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) said on Monday during an appearance on Fox News that President Obama is “inciting” birther conspiracy theorists by planning a trip to Kenya this summer’.

“I think his trip back to Kenya is going to create a lot of chatter and commentary amongst some of the hard right, who still don’t see him as having been born in the U.S.,” Sununu said on the show “America’s Newsroom.”

“I personally think he’s just inciting some chatter on an issue that should have been a dead issue a long time ago,” he said’.

First Word – ‘Questions For Indiana’s Critics’

first word

2

From a NYT article by Ross Douthat :

1

An organization can open it’s doors to selected members who voluntarily consent to follow the organizations rules.

When a business opens it’s doors to the public – you as a business owner voluntarily consent to be a member of Society and are governed by the Constitution.

Privately….you have the right to be a bigot.

But when you enter Society…..you don’t have that right.

 

1) ‘Should religious colleges whose rules or honor codes or covenants explicitly ask students and/or teachers to refrain from sex outside of heterosexual wedlock eventually lose their accreditation unless they change the policy to accommodate gay relationships’?

No. When you join a ‘religious’ college, you do so with a clear understanding to the rules and guidelines and more importantly – the ‘chain of command’ vs the Constitution that we use to govern our society.

As a human you have rights under the Constitution but as a student in a ‘religious’ college, you consent to abide by rules that conflict with the Constitution but you agree to.
——————–
2) ‘What about the status of religious colleges and schools or non-profits that don’t have such official rules about student or teacher conduct, but nonetheless somehow instantiate or at least nod to a traditional view of marriage at some level — in the content of their curricula, the design of their benefit package, the rules for their wedding venues, their denominational affiliation? Should their tax-exempt status be reconsidered’?

Tax exemption has nothing to do with civil rights in our Society.
Ross you need to stay on topic that the civil rights of a gay couple should be equal to the civil rights of a hetrosexual couple.
——————-

3) ‘Have the various colleges and universities that have done so been correct to withdraw recognition from religious student groups that require their leaders to be chaste until (heterosexual) marriage? Should all of secular higher education take the same approach to religious conservatives’?

Again you have wandered from the topic of civil rights in our Society.

PUBLIC colleges and Universities are PUBLIC – a part of our SOCIETY.

——————

4.) ‘In the longer term, is there a place for anyone associated with the traditional Judeo-Christian-Islamic view of sexuality in our society’s elite level institutions’?

You’re kidding me right?
They are already there.
But again you are attempting to divert the argument from civil right in our Society to opinions held and rules in organizations.
——————

5) ‘Should the state continue to recognize marriages performed by ministers, priests, rabbis, etc. who do not marry same-sex couples’?

Again theses are religious organizations and have the right to establish rules that are exempt from civil rights.
——————

6) ‘Should churches that decline to bless same-sex unions have their tax-exempt status withdrawn’?

Again you are attempting to divert attention away from civil rights in a Society to tax exempt status of an organization.
——————

7) ‘In the light of contemporary debates about religious parenting and gay or transgender teenagers, should Wisconsin v. Yoder be revisited? What about Pierce v.Society of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary’?

Really?

The parents right in the course of the education of their children vs a gay couple wanting to adopt a child?

Questions 2-7 are about diverting attention away from the basic civil right of equal protection under the law.

This is a very serious law and you are attempting to make it frivolous by throwing in tax exemption, religious schooling and organizations and parenting.

This law gives the right of a business owner to refuse service…..based on individual religious beliefs.
