The U.S. Ambassador to Malta, Douglas Kmiec, believes that a new report by the State Department indicates that it is intolerant of religious expression.
It is said of hurricanes that the danger is less the wind, and more the debris blown about by it.
Last Wednesday when President Obama addressed the nation to announce the deficit-reduction compromise, most of the “wind” concerned the conflict between the President’s approach to fiscal responsibility and that of Congressman Paul Ryan and the Republican party.
Late last week Democrats in the House of Representatives reintroduced a measure that would dramatically change current immigration law and provide immigration rights to same-sex couples that are equal to those currently given to traditional couples.
Back in February, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, announced that the Sooner State would be accepting a $54.6 million grant from the federal government to help create a health insurance exchange for Oklahomans that's required by the new healthcare law dubbed ObamaCare.
