If I worked in the judicial system I would feel duty bound to adhere to the innocent until proven guilty doctrine. As an ordinary system I feel I can pass judgement on this any time I want - just as I am NOT duty bound to agree with the decision rendered by a jury a.k.a. OJ Simpson.

Because they are not interested in a debate. Their goal is to brow beat any opposition into just shutting up. If you are against anything they are for you are either a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, a wife beater or a child killer. It will get worse. As these tactics become less successful they will go to even more extreme measures. You can't disagree with anything they say and still be a decent…

Yeah, that's an affliction that solely affects only ONE side of the political conversation in this country, right? Never heard terms like "libtards" and "Dumbocrats" and other childish nonsense? Be wary of casting those stones.

What's weird is some species are transexual---changing their sexual proclivities mid-life--or hermaphrodite, but no rampant homosexual species. But then, a dog will hump your leg with vigor........wonder where that fits in?
Expatriate - How the SSM “anti-polygamy” movement turned into Animal Farm - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJ
The state *is* supposed to exclude. They just can't do so in a way that discriminates against a suspect class (like when some states banned interracial marriage) or in a way that violates a fundamental right without a compelling state interest for doing so (interracial marriage and now gay marriage). The state interests in recognizing marriages include easier distribution of wealth upon the…

Main Street Growth & Opportunity Coalition launches in Missouri

1 year, 2 months ago From Main Street Growth

The Main Street Growth & Opportunity Coalition has announced its launch in Missouri.

The Coalition is an alliance of businesses, local trade associations and individuals in Missouri who are concerned about Washington’s failure to pass a common sense, pro-growth agenda for America. 

“Every time Congress plays political games and creates uncertainty in the economy, businesses suffer,” said Dan Shaul, State Director of the Missouri Grocers Association and a member of the coalition. “It’s time for Congress to listen to their constituents and start making progress by passing pro-growth policies.” 

The coalition’s pro-growth agenda will focus on four issues Washington lawmakers have ignored for too long: tax reform, opening new markets to U.S. products, fiscal responsibility and immigration reform. The group will educate lawmakers and Missourians about the economic benefits of these policies and illustrate the consequences of continued inaction.  

“Reforming the tax code will help businesses have the confidence to invest in ways that will make the economy grow again,” said Ray McCarty, president of the Associated Industries of Missouri “And with so many businesses trying to decrease overhead costs, tax reform can’t come soon enough.”

“Missouri businesses are being held down by taxes that are too high and too complex. Instead of updating the business tax code to be flatter, fairer and simpler, Congress has long decided to do nothing,” Shaul argued. “In addition to tax reform, America’s small businesses deserve more opportunities to compete against not only domestic companies, but foreign companies as well. Increasing exports of U.S. goods and services to new markets would provide a major boost to our economy.”
