The liberal war against Chick-fil-A: What about freedom of Religion?

Dan Cathy Chick-fil-a Gay Marriage Debate

It is disturbing that so-called liberal politicians would use their political positions to discriminate based on the religious beliefs of a business owner. So far there is no evidence that Chick-fil-A is discriminatory in its hiring or business practices.

What race is President Obama?

Barack Obama mixed genetics

President Obama is often referred to as the first Black President, but for a man that is genetically half black and half white, he could be equally considered just another white man in a long line of other white men who have served as president. Obama is more than a black man, he is a man with a story as unique as many other contemporary Americans. His story is not one that can be easily categorized. He is neither black nor white, but he is a mix that is inclusive…

No Religious Test Shall Ever Be Required For the President. Article VI – US Constitution

No Religious Test for the President

In a recent speech President Obama also called for the Libyan leader to step down or be removed. Republicans like the action that has been taken, but from all corners of the talkosphere from Bill O’Reilly to John McCain, the talking points memo seems to be that…

Obama the nice guy

Mr Obama is a too nice?  One of the criticisms I hear very often from his right wing detractors is that Obama is not tough enough, or doesn’t take a strong enough stance against America’s enemies and competitors.  Dick Cheney has harped on this concept since the campaign for the 2008 election. We all know the saying about nice guys finish last. But does that really mean that the only way to get things done is to be harsh and cruel?  If so, I understand why those right wingers cling…
