  •  Wow. Thanks Horace. (13+ / 0-)

    Question. Didn't Obama also do something specifically early in his administration to continue and/or reaffirm faith-based initiatives?

    Churches were now able to compete with non-secular organizations for charity dollars. The fact churches already receive those funds in the form of a tax break was never raised in mainstream media. This left organizations that were acceptable to the entire spectrum of Americans competing with those that loudly and proudly express bigotry. This is called Faith Based Initiatives.

    Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
