#OpDejaVu's curator insight, October 27, 2013 11:31 AM

Is this the thanks U.S. voters get for supporting President Obama during the GOP shutdown?  Are we supposed to forget that GOP obstructions & sequestration are to blame for many of the financial woes the United States currently faces?  


Are entitlement cuts preferable to demanding more from the ungrateful minority of citizens who give so little back to the nation that makes their prosperity possible?  Will the next hideous sellout of law-abiding, hard-working American voters, and their families, wear the brand of the Democratic party?  We shall see.

spencer fouracre wootten's curator insight, November 7, 2013 8:08 PM

This is very sad that a grown adult is getting bullied. Incognito bullied Martin while Incognito is the alleged "dirtiest player in the Nfl". Incognito was texting racist things to Martin and after accesive bullying, Martin quit the NFL. Martin spent his life training to get into the NFL and now it is decked because he was bullied and quit. If us was the commissioner of the NFL, I would kick out Incognito from the NFL. There school be a severe talk with the NFL and all other major American sports. This should never happen again and it is a sad day if it does.

In a unanimous opinion, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that Autocam Corporation is not entitled to an exemption from the contraceptive mandate, which requires most businesses to provide workers with health insurance that includes no-cost birth control. The court said a secular, for-profit company is not a person that can exercise religion under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
