    Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is challenging Gov. Pat McCrory for governor, spoke out against House Bill 2 Tuesday morning during a press conference. Cooper said his office, "will not defend the constitutionality of the discrimination in House Bill 2." McCrory signed the bill, called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, last Wednesday after it was passed by the North Carolina Senate. The law was in response to Charlotte's nondiscrimination ordinance that allowed transgender individuals to use public bathrooms of the sex with which they identify.

OK, let me also tell you that I wouldnít be angry; in fact, Iíd be ecstatic. Itís fun to count money from guaranteed punitive and compensatory damages in a multimillion dollar lawsuit. But thatís me.

    Like everyone who cares about the survival of America instead of the survival of the Republican Party and the jobs of a few hundred leeches in and around Washington, I carefully weigh each new bit of news regarding the candidates. I am a Donald Trump supporter so I am concerned with what happens on the Republican side of the arena. The Democrat side has its own problems as they are running headlong toward nominating either a Communist or a Felon with an indictment hanging over her head. The most important news this past week was the revelation that Ted Cruz...

    Chill out people! Everybody is churning out sleaze, and it needs to stop. We are better than this! I've seen all sorts of sleazy attacks directed at both candidates, and this is just wrong. People keep repeating the most unmitigated crap about the candidates to the extent that they have completely forgotten about being fair minded. If it's against the other guy, they repeat it, even if it is silly. So many people seem to have lost the ability to think critically, and have seemingly turned into a gaggle of emotional hate-spewing babies. It's not good for the Party, it's...

    A new report suggests Texas Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz has had several mistresses over the years. As the GOP presidential race between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump got personal this week, Ted Cruz wagged his finger at television cameras Thursday, warning Trump to leave his wife, Heidi, out of the fray. That was after Trump posted an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz on his Twitter page. But Cruz' wife isn't his problem now. A new report by the National Enquirer says private investigators have revealed at least five mistresses the sanctimonious senator has been hiding. The affairs include...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is criticizing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for what he calls "low-life, sleazy politics." Huckabee, who suspended his presidential campaign after a poor performance in Iowa, attacked Cruz's campaign for telling people on the night of the caucuses that rival Ben Carson would be dropping out of the race. "I can attest to the fact that even in our campaign there were many efforts to try and say that people shouldn't vote for me or Rick Santorum or Ben Carson," Huckabee said on his podcast this week, Buzzfeed News reported.

    (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday said legislation was not necessary to settle so-called "net neutrality" rules because the Federal Communications Commission had the authority to write them. Republicans in Congress are trying to drum up support for a bill that would counter the FCC's upcoming new rules. The Obama administration's comments, while not entirely rebuffing the legislative effort, could make some Democrats wary of joining it. "In terms of legislation, we donít believe itís necessary given that the FCC has the authorities that it needs under Title II," a White House official told Reuters. "However, we always remain...

    An analysis of Boehnerís current investment holdings includes a number of stocks benefiting from Obamacare in a total portfolio estimated at between $3.5 and $5 million in current market value. Boehnerís Obamacare-related investments trace back to 2009, when the Obama administration was pushing the Affordable Health Care Act through Congress. Boehner has consistently maintained his investments are held in a blind trust and that he does not personally make investment decisions in his own investment portfolio. But few experienced congressional critics believe Boehner and other members of Congress are unaware of their investment holdings, because public disclosure requirements demand yearly...

Seems reasonable to me that for something that happened late last week would not wait until WEDNESDAY for a service. Looks to me like Fort Hood was FORCED to not hold a service until it was convenient for Obamugabe. What do you think?

That's what Douglas Gansler, Maryland's aggressively pro-homosexual Attorney General, told a rally of homosexual group Equality Maryland back on Sept. 7, 2011. As Gansler has acknowledged, "gay marriage" has been universally rejected across the country, by the will of the people. It's only been instituted by judges or legislatures,...

Unions contend that the tax would be passed along to workers.
