Remember this question of Pelosi during the ObamaCare debate which was asked by many of those who opposed the bill.



Well a Florida judge has now answered that question and it is a resounding answer.

From Insurance Journal in an article titled Federal Judge in Florida Rules Federal Healthcare Law Must Be Voided

"...“Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications,” Vinson wrote.

He was referring to a key provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and sided with governors and attorneys general from 26 U.S. states, almost all of whom are Republicans, in declaring it unconstitutional. The issue will likely end up at the U.S. Supreme Court..."

Here is link to the actual 78 page decision.

A Virginia judge in December ruled the individual mandate as unconstitutional but not the whole health care bill. See Breaking: Virginia Judge ruled part of ObamaCare unconstitutional. Also see Judge stands up for "We the people..." against our Congress over ObamaCare and check out his words in the decision to allow the repeal to go further.

For more on why the individual mandate is key in ObamaCare check out Watch Tim Scott's first debate over health care repeal legislation. If the individual mandate doesn't pass this changes the debate on the deficit and debt and CBO score and more.

BBCNews reports on new award winning research out of the UK. The article is titled Beetle defence inspires University of Leeds research with a subtitled of The deadly defence system of a tiny African beetle has inspired award-winning research into a new generation of technology. But check out who the Professor of Thermodynamics and Combustion Theory is who was the Professor leading the team and his inspiration. For more on the Bombardier Beetle click here.

"The 2cm (0.8in) long Bombardier beetle defends itself with toxic steam which it can blast up to 20cm (8in).

A team of scientists from the University of Leeds have developed a technology which is based on the beetle's spray mechanism.

They say it may lead to improvements in the automotive and health industries.

The team's work has received the outstanding contribution to innovation and technology title at the Times Higher Education awards in London.

The award was given to the university and the Swedish Biomimetics 3000 company, which has sponsored the project....

It said it could inspire new types of nebulisers, needle-free injections, fire extinguishers and powerful fuel injection systems....

The university's professor of thermodynamics and combustion theory, Andy McIntosh, who led the research team, said: "Nobody had studied the beetle from a physics and engineering perspective as we did, and we didn't appreciate how much we would learn from it."

This is wonderful news but what is even more interesting from a Christian/Creation science perspective is that Andy McIntosh is a young earth creationist. Answers in Genesis points this out in their News to Note page on January 8th.

We often conclude our reports on scientists who are imitating God’s designs with the sad note that they attribute those designs to evolution, not God. But that isn’t the case this time. In fact, the name Andy McIntosh may sound familiar, because McIntosh is not only an award-winning scientist, but also a young-earth creationist. The research therefore provides not only another fascinating look at the incredible complexity and sophistication of biological creation, but also a reminder that one can be a Bible-believing young-earth creationist and a top-notch scientist at the same time.

Here is Andy McIntosh web page bio at the University of Leeds where I found his picture.

Andy says, “I believe there is much more of nature’s secrets that we could learn from our great Creator if we looked with an eye to see design . . . it was such an experimental and entrepreneurial spirit that led Wilbur and Orville Wright 107 years ago this month, to successfully copy the wing control of birds and so fly a warp wing controlled flying machine to fly along Kitty Hawk beach, in North Carolina . . . the distance covered was approximately the length of a Boeing 747!

We cannot continue to ignore the seriousness of this health crisis.” and Study in Canada shows that teenagers who drank from a few times to weekly or monthly in the past year are much more likely to have sexual intercourse

New study out of the UK via the Christian Institute:

Binge drinking is fuelling abortions and promiscuity

Women who binge drink are more likely to have an abortion or take the morning-after pill, according to new research.

Research by University College London has revealed that binge-drinking women were 40 per cent more likely to have had at least one abortion over the past year.

The study also revealed that women who drink more than the recommended weekly limit, roughly equivalent to 7 glasses of wine, were 80 per cent more likely to have used the morning-after pill (MAP) in the past year.

Blamed

Critics blamed binge drinking for fuelling an increase in the use of the MAP which can cause an early stage abortion.

Dr Sarah Jarvis, of the Royal College of General Practitioners, said: “We have known for years that excessive alcohol use is linked to unprotected sex which can increase the risk of catching sexually transmitted infections.

“I have seen an increase in patients at my surgery with alcohol problems and from young women requiring emergency contraception over the last few years.”
Moderation

And Norman Wells, Director of the Family Education Trust, said: “These findings reinforce the fact that parents can never afford to take a casual, laid-back approach to alcohol.

“It is important that they set an example of moderation in their own drinking habits and exercise control over their children’s exposure to alcohol.

“The importance of a stable family background and responsible parenting can never be overstated.”...."

From [VIDEO] Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial Rally

"...A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit reversed a district court decision and declared the monument unconstitutional this month in a case filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. Speakers at the event expressed their support for the U.S. Department of Justice to appeal the 9th Circuit’s decision.

“War heroes have earned the right to be remembered,” Infranco said. “The memory of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom shouldn’t be dishonored because the ACLU claims several people were merely offended.”

“The 9th Circuit chose a twisted and tired interpretation of the First Amendment over the common-sense idea that the families of fallen American troops should be allowed to honor them as they choose,” he added. “No one is harmed, constitutionally or otherwise, by the presence of a cross on a war memorial, but there is great harm to tearing these memorials down. The memorial cross should stand in honor of the sacrifice made by our troops.”

One of the most non offensive preachers in our nation takes a stand on the issue of homosexuality and is called a hate preacher. Unbelievable. If Joel Osteen is a hate preacher according to these homosexual groups than those who believe in the Bible are in much trouble if homosexual lobby groups have their ways with the laws of our land. Don't tell me same sex marriage doesn't effect the religious freedoms of others.



Here is your "hate" preacher on CNN with the interview in its entirety. If you come away thinking this guy hates homosexuals then dude I am sorry we Christians have every reason to believe that this issue of same sex marriage is a threat to the First Amendment rights of those who disagree with homosexuals on this issue.



What about the rights of the homosexual who wishes to change his/her sexual orientation because of his/her religious beliefs or new found faith? If what they believe about God is more important than their sexuality than why not let their be a voice for those homosexuals who wish to follow their beliefs about Christ. Their are many who have done just that and they didn't hate anyone nor encourage others to hate anyone nor were hated into the change. See or start with Video: Janet Boynes leaves homosexuality behind via Christ through loving Christian friends. and Testimony of Ex-Gay Alan Chambers says Leaving Homosexuality is not about heterosexuality but rather holiness and What can possibly be more important then sexual orientation?

To take away options and choices for homosexuals who wish to change and call them hateful for wishing to walk according to their beliefs is itself not very loving. I will not go so far as calling it hate cause those who are calling people hateful for their beliefs may not realize how it looks from a point of view other than their own and may just be ignorant rather than hateful. Ex-gays and those who are in the process of change have as much right as those who wish not to to believe as they wish and change.

Just because Christianity teaches that sex outside of marriage is a sin doesn't mean that Christianity teaches to hate prostitutes. Some may believe prostitution is perfectly ok but clearly they are irrational to call those who believe it not to be ok as hateful. I believe people can agree to disagree in love and do not have to resort to slanderous accusations of hate toward one another nor demand apologies from one another for their differing view points.

Click on image above and blow up. This chart shows the ratings of the last State of the Union addresses going back to Clinton. Clinton holds the record with Bush in second and Obama in third. Found chart on Nielsen's blog here.

I personally watched the address on CSPAN but then CSPAN got so clogged with traffic and I don't have the best connection I then headed over to FoxNews.com and then headed over to CBNNews.com for the Republican responses. Could be the internet is growing in usage.

FoxNews won hands down on the ratings amongst Cable Networks this year.

When will we learn!!!

Check out below video. If all the Republicans stood up and clapped like the Democrats did to Bush in 2006 in their victory of being the party of "no" I just bet the media would have had a fit and the Democrats certainly would have. The media probably praised this display of partisanship. Very interesting how the media shifts it's story depending on whether or not a Republican or Democrat is giving the State of the Union address.

Bush tried to reform Fannie and Freddie and the party of "no" blocked that reform and Fannie and Freddie have become our largest bailout and we still don't know what to do with them (see label Mortgage Crisis). Now the party of "no" blocked Social Security reform under Bush and for the first time this year CBO announced that Social Security is in the red. Check out CBO: Social Security to begin running permanent deficits this year, not 2016. Then the party of "no" became the party of "yes" and now we have but yet another "entitlement" the government is responsible to subsidize in ObamaCare. When will we learn. Unbelievable. 



Bush certainly was far from perfect but one thing you could bank on is where he stood and he was a straight shooter. Oops. I mean one who was not pc.

In VVN's opinion the real reason why we are in a mess as we are boils down to our values. See One nation under God and what does it matter? and Cartoons and charts exposing economic consequences for America's straying from our "In God we trust" roots and label . And whether or not we are going to seek the wisdom of God in this mess or try to do it without Him. It's pretty obvious in our mortgage industry we did not seek His wisdom (Mortgage Crisis). Our forefathers and many following leaders concurred.

President Reagan once said at a prayer breakfast in Dallas: "America needs God more than God needs America, If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."

And to conclude with Reagan as he quotes Lincoln from the past in our nation's crisis of the Civil War in the 1800's and during the current economic crisis that Reagan faced in the 80's: "Abraham Lincoln once said, "I would be the most foolish person on this footstool earth if I believed for one moment that I could perform the duties assigned to me without the help of one who is wiser than all." I know that in the days to come and the years ahead there are going to be many times when there will only be one set of footprints in my life. If I did not believe that, I could not face the days ahead."-1981 National Day of Prayer Breakfast. Reagan was referring to that infamous poem about the footprints in the sand.

The only portion of this speech I applauded is the earmark veto and the end of his speech (see Did Capitalism or Jesus save the miners in Chile?). He sounded like Bush on the wars and South Sudan's success was also a result of Bush era foreign policy (see Obama: World is watching Sudan Referendum and says "The United States will not abandon the people of Darfur."). He can talk about reducing the debt and deficit all he wants but his opening remarks about "investments" or rather bigger Government and more spending lost all credibility to me on that issue. For more on that see President Obama points us in the right direction as he answers the question: Why should Americans trust Democrats to reduce government spending and debt? and Watch Paul Ryan's response to the President's State of the Union Address

Check out our President's address below and note the "investments" he wants to make but remember those "investments" is just more Government spending and programs. But also notice his move toward the right on earmarks (note though that Republicans beat him to it see Democrats out earmark Repulbicans $50 billion to $1 billion. No longer a bipartisan issue. and Breaking: Mitch McConnell announces support for earmark ban!!!) and his excellent ending to the speech. Earmarks are at about 51 minutes and in  and his excellent conclusion is at about 1:02:00 to the end. Again an excellent conclusion...

From the National Review....

‘Potentially Evangelical’ Professor is Now $125,000 Richer

"I wrote last month about the American Center for Law and Justice’s case on behalf of Dr. Martin Gaskell, a highly respected astronomer. The University of Kentucky denied Dr. Gaskell’s job application apparently because they viewed him as “potentially evangelical” (that’s an actual quote from UK’s internal documents). After a federal court denied UK’s attempt to dismiss the case, the university has now settled, agreeing to pay Professor Gaskell $125,000.

Coming on the heels of June Sheldon’s $100,000 settlement after San Jose Community College fired her for providing a (literally) textbook answer to questions about the origin of homosexual desire, it’s becoming clear that religious discrimination in academia is growing increasingly costly (and those figures don’t include the considerable sums the universities paid to outside counsel to defend their illegal conduct).

Additionally, next Wednesday, I’ll be in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals arguing Prof. Mike Adams’s case against UNC-Wilmington. Dr. Adams was denied promotion through a process that was rife with vitriolic internal commentary regarding his beliefs and speech...."

"We conclude that performance of movements towards the co-twin is not accidental: already starting from the 14th week of gestation twin foetuses execute movements specifically aimed at the co-twin."

From LifeSiteNews.com...

Unborn twins interact with each other as early as 14 weeks


PADOVA, Italy, January 12, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Unborn twin babies socialize as early as week 14 of gestation, a new study has shown.

Italian researcher Dr. Umberto Castiello of the University of Padova and associates used an advanced method of ultrasonography, which enables the movements of the babies to be recorded over time in 3D, to study five pairs of twins from a sample of low-risk pregnant women attending the Institute of Child Health I.R.C.C.S. Burlo Garofolo.

The purpose of the study was to see how twins interacted with each other in their mothers’ wombs and to determine if the interaction was intentional or accidental...

....“Although various types of inter-twins contact have been demonstrated starting from the 11th week of gestation,” Dr. Castiello said, “no study has so far investigated the critical question whether intra-pair contact is the result of motor planning rather then the accidental outcome of spatial proximity.”...

“We demonstrate that by the 14th week of gestation twin foetuses do not only display movements directed towards the uterine wall and self-directed movements, but also movements specifically aimed at the co-twin, the proportion of which increases between the 14th and 18th gestational week,” the scientists stated.

The proportional increase in contact with the twin was reported to be consistent among the ten babies studied...."

The full text of the study, titled “Wired to Be Social: The Ontogeny of Human Interaction” is available here.

"All of this new government spending was sold as ‘investment.’"

"Whether sold as ‘stimulus’ or repackaged as ‘investment,’ their actions show they want a federal government that controls too much; taxes too much; and spends too much in order to do too much."

"When government takes on too many tasks, it usually doesn’t do any of them very well. It’s no coincidence that trust in government is at an all-time low now that the size of government is at an all-time high."

“We need to reclaim our American system of limited government, low taxes, reasonable regulations, and sound money, which has blessed us with unprecedented prosperity. And it has done more to help the poor than any other economic system ever designed. That’s the real secret to job creation – not borrowing and spending more money in Washington. Limited government and free enterprise have helped make America the greatest nation on earth.”

Update: Hawaii Senators Hold Prayer Despite Ban

Unbelievable. Check out report below as Hawaii bows to the ACLU. In video below note that the US Senate opens every day in prayer. This prayer was made on the first day of the 112th congress. The US House of Representatives does the same thing every single session. So do 50 49 states open their sessions in prayer. The prayer begins at about 4 to 5 minutes into the video. Apparently, for over 200 years at the Federal and State level all over our country we have been violating the first amendment or so thinks the ACLU. Also see One nation under God and what does it matter?



Found this at GatewayPundit....

"Fearing a possible court challenge, Hawaii’s state Senate has voted to silence the daily prayer offered before each session began — making it the first state legislative body in the nation to halt the practice.

A citizen’s complaint had prompted the American Civil Liberties Union last summer to send the Senate a letter noting that its invocations often referenced Jesus Christ, contravening the separation of church and state.

That prompted the state attorney general’s office to advise the Senate that their handling of prayers — by inviting speakers from various religions to preach before every session — wouldn’t survive a likely court challenge, said Democratic Majority Leader Brickwood Galuteria.

“Above all, our responsibility is to adhere to the Constitution,” Galuteria said after Thursday’s vote to halt the daily blessings."

Speaker Boehner Marks 38th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Decision, Welcomes March to Life Participants

Washington (Jan 22) House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement today marking the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade and welcoming participants in the annual March for Life, which will take place on Monday, January 24:

“Today marks the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s tragic Roe v. Wade decision that tore asunder a right to life our Founding Fathers described so indelibly in our Declaration of Independence.  The decision denigrated the respect we must have for life at all stages, especially the innocent unborn.

“The new House majority has listened to the people and pledged to end taxpayer funding of abortion. A ban is the will of the people and ought to be the law of the land.  This week, Congressman Chris Smith introduced bipartisan legislation that would codify the Hyde Amendment and similar policies by permanently applying a ban on taxpayer funding of abortion across all federal programs.  This is critical, common-sense legislation that deserves the support of the people’s representatives and the president.

“The cause of life endures today in large part due to the vigilance of all those Americans who, led by Nellie Gray, travel to Washington each year at this time to march and pray for the protection of the unborn.  These efforts--aimed at restoring the damage of the Roe decision--must continue.   Americans love life as much as we love freedom.  These two founding principles are intertwined and form the basis of our national character.  Without respect for life, freedom is in jeopardy.”
