“feminism subjects the institution of family to atomization and creates zero-sum equations within that institution to make each see the other as rivals and enemies, it pits men, women and children against each other to divide and destroy family institution, than pose as savior and support system for women.”
“What law? Please cite with appropriate House/Senate numbers. What part of that law?”

“Not sure of the appropriate House codes, but the law was signed last year by Obama.
It is the law that governs the release of prisoners from G Bay.
Congress must be given 30 days prior notice to any release of aprisoner. In this case they were not notified until after the release was complete.”
“Okay, since you're making things up...
Congress, especially the House, controls the budget. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/dec/8/congress-deals-death-blow-gitmo-closure/
That 100% control - not so much. http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/factcheck-mailbag-week-of-june-5-11/ in part, "FactCheck.org responds: Democrats controlled the House and Senate beginning in January 2007, but their majorities were nowhere close to “veto-proof” in either chamber.
In the Senate, the split was effectively 51-49 (counting two independents who typically voted with Democrats), and in the House, the split was 233-202. It requires a two-thirds majority in both houses to override a veto. See Article I, Section 7. "
Not sure how you can figure the Senator (not elected) Obama had control of the Senate for the last 2 years of the GWBush term.
Yes, he does have control of his administration, but not of the Senate or the Judiciary, you might want to get a copy of the US Constitution and READ IT.”
“So, go out guns a blazing, how many innocents are you willing to take along with you? Guess that doesn't matter as long as you can carry your gun. BTW, I have a concealed carry permit and don't feel the need to carry. Guess I'm not paranoid. No, I have never seen you quick draw and hope no one ever has to.”

“Carol how many people have died because of someone's religion? I can give up money, but I'm not giving up my life just because someone's god thinks I should die.”
“Wow, just wow. I'm thinking you might know what you're talking about, but I don't think many other people do. Consider a remedial class in English writing, punctuation, word usage and definitions; then repost. Maybe you can make some sense then.”
“And here it is. from factchck.org Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on May 12, 1989. Following graduation, she joined Sidley Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago. But a few years later, in 1994, while working for the Public Allies project in Chicago, Obama voluntarily had her license placed on “inactive” status.”

“Darn facts. Always foiling those right wing lies.”
“Guy I know, was married, 4 kids, divorced, always seemed a bit melancholy. Turns out he was horribly conflicted and when he finally admitted he was gay - fell in love and had to face his sexuality, he was much happier. The gloom lifted. Best response was from a family member, who after there was much secrecy about his coming out, was told and response was "Is that all? I was afraid he had cancer. No big deal, I love him just the same, no matter what."”
“Actors and actresses have just as much right to be sources of information as you do. They have just as much right to educate themselves and others about issues. Since they are in the public eye because of their vocations, they probably have more responsibility towards their public than you do and Alan Alda is an intelligent man who has educated himself on issues he cares about. PS, many cancers can be cured nowadays that were thought incurable not too long ago.”

“Yes, I agree, if the information that they put forth is correct.”
“Republicans in Congress obstructed any and everything. If they had passed the budget for the VA back in February, then maybe you could blame Obama. He**, if there hadn't been 2 unfunded wars and all the problems those have created, maybe the veterans wouldn't have had as much need.”
Anthony Placebo on May 23, 2014 at 20:25:22
“They aren't the ones who appoint the Secretary of the VA. Obviously changes need to made in the leadership of the institution who allow cover ups and fraud. War or no war there is bad leadership at the core of the problem.”
