SCOTUS on LGBT Appeals Court Rulings ~ Not Federal purview to judge. why no dismissals at Appeals level? #MIGOP #tcot #sgp

Federal law does not supersede State law when Federal law/Court Rulings are unconstitutional.

 In the SCOTUS recent Windsor decision of not hearing the several Appeals Court decisions, the Federal Supreme Court stated that they are not hearing those cases, because the federal government has no jurisdiction over moral issues.  This should of it's own undone those Appeals courts that removed the States' Sanctity of Marriage determinations of marriage being of one man and one woman.

Why have we been silent to this fact?  Why have not these Appeals Court decisions been dismissed?


On Tuesday, United States District Judge Juan Pérez-Giménezupheld Puerto Rico’s law defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. He concluded that the U.S. Constitution does not require the redefinition of marriage.
And it is the Supreme Court’s Windsor decision that Pérez-Giménez highlights as to why states have constitutional authority to make marriage policy:
The Windsor opinion did not create a fundamental right to same gender marriage nor did it establish that state opposite-gender marriage regulations are amenable to federal constitutional challenges. If anything, Windsorstands for the opposite proposition: it reaffirms the States’ authority over marriage, buttressing Baker’s conclusion that marriage is simply not a federal question.
Pérez-Giménez goes on to cite Windsor: “the definition of marriage is the foundation of the State’s broader authority to regulate the subject of domestic relations with respect to the ‘protection of offspring, property interests, and the enforcement of marital responsibilities.’”

#APT verses #FairTax Verses #FlatTax ~ #RGA #DGA #NGA #RNC #DNC #MIGOP #MIGOV #Tcot #sgp #p2 #ocra #GOP #Dem

Has anyone looked into this plan? The claims are better then FairTax, but there is something that just don't sit right. What would control the Feds and how would States be free of Federal domination? How can such a taxation bring in so much revenue and be so small to the average citizen? It is scary on the surface as it sounds so promising.
Learn how we calculate the Transaction Tax based on total US transactions. And how taxes would be instantly collected and wired to the US Treasury over our electronic banking network.

The claim is $.35 per hundred of transaction.

The IRS Tax Code presently puts embedded taxes in American product and service. By this billing, the individual or business would have to increase the price of their product and service the amount of the tax 
expense on service provided. 

With the current system, business pay a 35% income tax(unless they bribed congress) and you know what families pay. The average embedding of tax is about 22% of product price and 29% of service price. 

The only tax that would make the USA be able to compete with imports and tax their consumption equally as with a sales tax.

Now I see this transaction tax, a consumption of transaction concept and see they may be on to something. It took 6 months for FairTax to reach Eureka.

I asked some friends at FaceBook 'FairTax 2012' Group what they thought of this Transaction tax::

Glenn J. Shapiro~ Its a VAT in disguise (?).
EVERY transaction is taxed, so the level of taxes can be large when products pass through several, if not many middlemen.

Tony Leach~  Glenn is right, any tax on transactions will be passed down as a cost of doing business so it's a VAT on transactions. Either way the people still pay it and it's hidden once again. All these other plans do the same thing but still have taxes being passed on. Why bother if we can just push them all to the end of the line and free up the economy from taxes 100%?

R. George Dunn~  Thank you gentleman, it gelled!

Gridlock by not electing Governor Snyder may just work #MIGOP #MIGOV #rightmi #migrassroots

Bill Ballenger, Kyle Melinn make the point that might have to be considered in this election.

Video found atVoteForGridlock.com
Its pretty bad when our BEST alternative comes from tying the hands of our lawmakers so that they might accomplish none of their goals. Its bad when either gubernatorial candidate represents a regressive or potentially dangerous path for our state. Its uncomfortable to have to advocate such a position, but Ballenger, and Melinn get it.
Look, its not as if we didn’t warn of the poison infecting the Republican party before. Mark Schauer is BAD NEWS. But Rick Snyder, beyond whatever reasonable reforms already made, has his own plans that we will not, and can not support any more than the Democrat’s own.
If Snyder loses, (which appears to be less probable the more folks see Schauer) it must be seen as a clear repudiation by conservatives, and a loss of the base. Don’t think the flags wouldn’t be raised for broader support of the Schauer (leftist) doctrine. As we have seen already, the Romney loss and subsequent misplaced blame was a severe example of denial by party leadership.
As you can see from the article below, Governor Snyder will be doing this.  Here is a very good statement on the subject of Marriage:

Abigail Nobel~ It's not only about morality, and the IRS rules are incidental. The heart of the matter goes all the way down to natural law, and civilized countries have acknowledged it for over 1000 years. The American founders put it this way:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted ...."
Rock bottom principle: marriage is a civil institution because government thereby secures essential rights, the rights of fathers to their families. Take away marriage laws, and fathers have no enforceable rights. Mothers can take the kids, kick out the Dad, deny access, with no legal recourse. With marriage laws, families are secure. Without them, society is survival of the fittest.

Governor Snyder calls for adding LGBT protections in Elliot-Larsen Act

flagOn Thursday Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder joined a growing coalition of voices calling for the inclusion of LGBT people in the state's civil rights protections. Joining Snyder in his announcement were the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Grand Rapids Area Chamber
