So Yahoo and the Boner conspired, shared classified info which was the result of espionage against the USA.

Boner invited Yahoo to share the classified info with the seditious anti American Republican Party in a speech before Congress.

He then buttted into sensitive negotiations aimed at achieving peace, pressed a foreign policy contrary to that of the State Department, and now is on the way to Israel to pay homage and canoodle with Yahoo.

We know that Reagan conspired with Iran to defeat Carter.

We know that Nixon conspired with Viet Nam and killed peace negotiations.

W flew the families of Saudi Bigwigs out of our country to prevent them from being interviewed by the FBI.

Republicans have been conspiring against the President and the country since the night the President was inaugurated.

If it looks like the party of treason, that's because it is.

Today: Ryan's mother Cyndi said it all began with horrible nightmares when he was 4 years old. Then when he was 5 years old, he confided in her one evening before bed. "He said mom, I have something I need to tell you," she said. "I used to be somebody else." His mother said he would tell stories about meeting stars like Rita Hayworth, traveling overseas on lavish vacations, dancing on Broadway, and working for an agency where people would change their names Privately, she checked out books about Hollywood from the local library, hoping something inside would help her son make sense of his strange memories and help her son cope with his sometimes troubling "memories." "Then we found the picture, and it changed everything," she said. "She turns to the page in the book, and I say'that's me, that's who I was,' Ryan remembers.


Richard Nixon was a traitor.

The new release of extended versions of Nixon's papers now confirms this long-standing belief, usually dismissed as a "conspiracy theory" by Republican conservatives. Now it has been substantiated by none other than right-wing columnist George Will.

Nixon's newly revealed records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate, he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade them to refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.

Nixon's interference with these negotiations violated President John Adams's 1797 Logan Act, banning private citizens from intruding into official government negotiations with a foreign nation.

New York Times Then: "Clinton 'May Have Violated' Federal Law With Email Use." In its initial report, the Times accused Hillary Clinton of possibly having "violated federal requirements that officials' correspondence be retained as part of the agency's record" with her use of personal email for official government business during her time at the department, specifically citing the Federal Records Act. New York Times Now: "Guidelines On Email Use Were Vague, 'Until Three Months Ago There Was No Law.'" The Times' earlier allegation that Clinton may have violated federal law was undercut by a subsequent report published over a week later explaining that oversight of email guidelines have been "vague" at the time Clinton worked at the State Department. read more

From the standpoint of allowing "Religious Exceptions" to anti discrimination laws, the slope is not slippery, it is not even a slope. It is a cliff.

In businesses which serve the public, the law dictates that one must serve the entire public. 'Everybody' is the public.

If a business owner wishes to limit their business model to only a particular group which shares their religious views and mores, they should require a membership based upon inclusion.

An example of this would be "The Roman Catholic Wedding Cake Baker", "The Third Baptist Plumber Works", or "The Mormon Dog Grooming Salon". Your religion should define the qualifying determinant. It does not define those to whom you refuse service, based upon the customer's religious beliefs and mores, it qualifies the customer for service..

The Catholic businesses which seek protection should not be allowed to serve Methodists, Unitarians, Pastafarians, or Quakers.

This is restriction based on inclusion, rather than exclusion.

There is already in place, legal precedent for these types of protections to business owners.

The licensure for such a business should require that only members of your particular cult be served. It would protect the merchant from anti discrimination as well as protect the customer from capricious discriminatory policies.

Any other type of 'religious' permit to discriminate', based upon other than denominational membership, is really just another effort to promote an American brand of Sharia Law.

Such a system would be grounded solely in inclusion. It would prevent the exclusion (discrimination) agains a particular type of customer, which is constitutionally prohibited.

This would also provide a commitment-test of faith for the service provider. If you really want to limit the customer base, there should be an economic burden placed upon the believer, not a additional burden upon the non believer.

In such a system, failure to limit transactions strictly to the religion named on the 'Religious Qualified Business Exemption' should be grounds for loss of the exempt license, and the business would be required to serve everybody who walks into the establishment, or close its doors.
