  1. Private business owners is a case by case whether or not their actions conflict with federal or state laws but therapists and medical professionals are absolutely free to deny service to clients they are not equipped or inclined to treat, for whatever reason. Not every "counselor" is willing or able to go through the huge amount of effort to learn about the pathology of every disease for a relatively small client base. Even Johns Hopkins university hospital stopped performing sex-reassignment surgery in the 1970's or '80's I believe since producing a 'satisfied' but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for amputating normal organs.Every doctor doesn't treat every ailment, that's why there are specialists. Jim Crow was just the opposite. It prohibited business owners from freely engaging in commerce with whomever they pleased. The current laws may unfortunately be doing more harm than good to faith based organizations in general but they do recognize the freedom to fraternize with whom we please, for good, bad or no reason. Stop trying to force people to associate with others, it's a very weird impulse. It's not only totalitarian, it's pathetic.
  2. I do post in other areas, this was just what has gotten my interest lately and I haven't been on quite a while. What difference does it make anyway ? to paraphrase Clinton.
  3. lol I'm not even going to be in the country to vote for Trump in my state primary this week if it makes you feel any better. But someone needs to keep it real and I know tons of Democrats who are which is why he is on pace to win more Republican primary votes than any GOP contender in 36 years, or maybe ever.
  4. So far thru this year’s primary season there has been a net change of 15 million votes moving from Democrats to Republicans. In the 2012 Presidential election Obama garnered about 5 million more votes than Mitt Romney. A shift of 5 million votes would have given Romney the Presidency. In four of the five primary states Tuesday independents were not allowed to vote. In 2008 the Democrats surpassed the Republicans in these states by a total of 2.5 million votes. Today, the separation is less than 700,000 votes. Not to mention recent polls that have Hillary and Trump in a virtual tie. I'm not in it full throttle for Trump but I can do the math and know a movement when I see it.
  5. I agree we need more details behind the concept of stability without nation building -- it sounds fine, except what is his approach to stabilizing the world ? There are legal deadlines and other parties to all these negotiations as well, some of whom we need as allies, like Russia. So just randomly tearing treaties up and leaving the table is not going to be an option.
  6. And U.S. against the rest of the world as well which might end up uniting Americans if nothing else. I thought his foreign policy address this morning was totally on point in outlining what would be the major and overriding themes of a Trump administration. Putting America First is compelling material that will have very broad appeal. If he can show a similar command of other issues such as the economy, our educational system, and the criminal justice system, he could a very formidable candidate in the general election.
  7. But as I understand it the deadline to change registration in New York was October, the earliest in the country, which is before most people had ever heard of Sanders or other unaffiliated candidates. Whatever you think of closed primaries, overly tight regulations obviously intended to protect incumbents and only those with strong name recognition undermines the integrity of the entire electoral process, and as the mayor of NYC put it, must be fixed.
  8. He won't because only Democrats can vote -- Independents are disenfranchised in New York, and that is more than 25% of the total electorate. It will probably impact Trump also. I doubt Clinton can win the state in a general election, though.
  9. I'm not claiming to have any more insight into what is going on than anyone else but at least you can't say he doesn't think outside the Professional Sellout Lawyer Politicians Box. . Donald Trump's Unusual Plan to Lower the National Debt: Sell Off 19 Trillion In Government Assets As president, Donald Trump would sell off $16 trillion worth of U.S. government assets in order to fulfill his pledge to eliminate the national debt in eight years, senior adviser with the campaign Barry Bennett said. "The United States government owns more real estate than anybody else, more land than anybody else, more energy than anybody else," Bennett told Chris Jansing Sunday on MSNBC. "We can get rid of government buildings we're not using, we can extract the energy from government lands, we can do all kinds of things to extract value from the assets that we hold." http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/donald-trump-s-unusual-plan-lower-national-debt-sell-government-n549946
  10. I don't know how much worse it can get, the first thing everyone is starting to notice with her are the lie flavored with some weasel words. I have even heard Hillary call herself a 'mostly a non-interventionist', ponder that for a moment. The "steady hands" schtick is an absolute joke. She certainly didn't look very steady when she made her video-blaming public appearances after our Libyan ambassador was dragged through the streets or as the poor, put-upon victim of a right wing conspiracy testifying about it to Congress. In another interview she tried to make it sound like she was instrumental in starting the Iranian nuclear negotiations. She did no such thing. All she did was impose sanctions and insist that Iran had no right to enrich uranium. Her actions are always more careless and hawkish than the measured words she speaks.
  11. Well it wouldn't benefit the United States or a Clinton candidacy certainly but she is welcome to run on a platform pandering to the Jewish vote, it wouldn't be any more of a lie than what Trump just did declaring Iran as the worst state sponsor of terrorism and responsible for most of the terrorism in the Middle East. Isn't it actually the current White House is #1, Saudi Arabia is #2 and Iran is #3 ??
  12. Well, the fact that she is more hawkish than Obama by all accounts... it is just another reason not to be surprised.
  13. Not just the Middle East...Hillary has never met an American military involvement she didn't support from her time as First Lady to candidate. Interventions, wars, more of the same....If Libya was "smart, humanitarian" power at its best," as Clinton says and wants to repeat in Syria I would seriously hate to see it at its worst.
  14. I thought this was interesting although I can't comment in depth from a European perspective since I only read the Japanese papers which haven't had any direct reporting or independent analysis on the growing fears over a Trump effect, yet.(Although for what it is worth the Japanese PM I think would probably welcome American leeway to rearm the country as a counterweight to the growing military assertiveness of China). https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/03/21/donald-trump-reveals-foreign-policy-team-in-meeting-with-the-washington-post/ Trump questions need for NATO, outlines noninterventionist foreign policy Donald Trump outlined an unabashadly noninterventionist approach to world affairs Monday, telling The Washington Post's editorial board that he questions the need for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which has formed the backbone of Western security policies since the Cold War. The meeting at The Post covered a range of issues, including media libel laws, violence at his rallies, climate change, the NATO and the U.S. presence in Asia. Speaking ahead of a major address on foreign policy later Monday in front of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Trump said he advocates an aggressive U.S. posture in the world with a light footprint. In spite of unrest abroad, especially in the Middle East, Trump said the United States must look inward and steer its resources toward rebuilding domestic infrastructure.
  15. Not to be overly crass or political but this is a horror show of senior affliction and the sympathy vote if Bill doesn't make it could be powerful. Whatever it is, there is something up, I don't like seeing folks going through that, even if it is a Clinton. Morality. Reckoning day awaits....(us all). http://www.theamericanmirror.com/video-bill-clinton-appears-listless-disconnected -during-tucson-rally/ VIDEO: Bill Clinton appears listless, disconnected during Tucson rally My guess is Parkinson’s Disease. My father had it. Some symptoms are hand tremors, lack of facial expression and either too much or not enough eye blinking. Clinton has excessive eye blinking. If not Parkinson’s, then some other neuromotor disease or prescription psychotropic drugs.
