In all, 348 of the nation’s 3,143 counties, or 1 in 9, have minority populations across all age groups that total more than 50 percent.

In a sign of future U.S. race and ethnic change, the number of counties reaching the tipping point increases to more than 690, or nearly 1 in 4, when looking only at the under age 5 population.
The country is in even bigger trouble than the GOP is.

Boehner has just said that he's open to "higher revenues" in return for cuts in social programs and tax reform.

There's still work to do but there WILL be a deal.

Plus I bet he's refering to liberal judges when he makes reference to the loons in the Supreme Court...quite the opposite to what an Islamic state would appoint...

Secondly, thanks for clearing that up. You might have done so in your OP lest we leap to the conclusion that you honestly fear that the 0.9% of Americans who are Muslim are somehow going to take over the country. But if there's anything recent Middle East history has shown, it's that Muslim and/or Arab countries hate each other almost as much as they hate Israel and the West. Do you have some inside information to suggest otherwise?
Of course it is possible, and much more acceptable to worry about "smaller" issues in state governments than in federal, especially during times like these. It is obviously not a simple matter, but it is a trivial one in comparison. The only issue I see with same-sex marriage in relation to this election is that I believe many young liberals voted with this as their main incentive. Which isn't right.

Muslims in the Middle East are becoming more and more radical and aggressive toward America. With all the chaos going on over there in the past two years, especially domestically, the president has shown weakness and almost empathy toward them.

Secondly, I am indifferent to homosexuality. But I strongly believe there are MANY way more important issues to address before the issue of gay marriage should even be a concern.
No. It really isn't.

Sorry, you've been had.

Well, this is where we will have to agree to disagree. I guess time will tell who's been "had."

With the election behind us, we must now turn to the practical questions the results imply. For example, should I order my Romney Chia Pet head now or will they still be available closer to the holiday? Will there be discounts?

I haven't seen the movie yet, but how can a prediction of the future be factual?

I'm guessing the other poster is right, and you've been duped... that film sounds about as unbiased as a Michael Moore project, LOL.
