Watched the hearing expecting to see that the Republican majority were finally able to establish something. But no.The only thing I learned was that the congressional committee is powerless in the face of one woman who asserts her constitutional rights.What I can't understand is, IF the committee wants to find her in contempt, why haven't they started that process in the last nine months.

Fine example of ignorance and disrespect. True enough, a person can have a posthumous marriage in France (and China and some other countries).
However you probably don't know the laws that permit, nor the regulations attached to that.
Start with this reference before you try to equate SSM with posthumous marriage.
Posthumous marriage has been officially recognized for the last sixty years, without the collapse of society.

bls.gov website Characteristics of workers 2012:
21.1% (854,000) of hourly workers paid at or below minimum wage are 16-19
12.1% (1,797,000) of hourly workers paid at or below minimum wage are 16-24
2.9% (1,753,000) of hourly workers paid at or below minimum wage are 25 or over.
Only 1 in 4 of the hourly workers that are paid at or below minimum wage are teenagers. (854,000 versus 3,550,000)
An increase in the minimum wage would make a difference to the lives of 3.5 million hourly workers.
Tell them they don't exist.

It's not propaganda of either wing.
It's is MY recollection. Just as I recollect that the mailman came today. It needs no sourcing.
Indeed, you are strange.

You want me to "source" my recollection?
Apparently you don't understand the notion of sourcing.

I seem to recall that Hussain did everything he could to placate Bush prior to invasion.
There was not much that Hussain could do about events that happened ten years previous.
We told Hussain to destroy missles, and after he said he did, Bush insisted there were more, but it turns out that Hussain was telling the truth.
evio says that the "bad" intelligence was gathered under Clinton's watch. As I recall Powell made quite a deal over photos of weapons producing trailers that had just been taken ....trailers Powell suggested were being hidden in the dessert. Turns out Powell was wrong
After 9/11 the US was psychologically set to kick some butt, and wanted control of Iraqi oil. Simple - two birds with one very large (and enormously expensive) stone.
evio, you are just wrong!

Eivo,You said, "As hard as this will be for you to do'".
The implication is clear, that you imagine that John will have great difficulty in understanding a different point of view.This was your first ten words in commentary on John's letter. He wrote nothing about you, he did not disrespect you, he did not attack you. So why are you disparaging his ability to see another point of view?
The point is, why begin the discussion with a characterization of John's ability?
Respectfully, I disagree with your statement that there is "no way to post and not offend". You can post without the unnecessary and provocative personal characterizations.

eivo,You explained nothing to excuse your rudeness and disrespect towards John Polanski.
He gave his opinion, made no reference to you or your comments and you immediately responded with a personal attack on him.
A respectful person would have stated his disagreement and the reasons for that disagreement and not launched into implying that John may not be capable of understanding.
You have explained nothing as to why you took to disparaging the letter writer.
And now you are telling me that "I already explained it", and suggesting that I'm incapable of understanding.

Eivo, Fails to explain why you are rude and disrespectful to John.
February 2, 2014 at 10:08 p.m.
Why do you find it necessary to begin your discussion with John by insulting him?
Saying " As hard as this will be for you to do", is not a very respectful way of starting a discussion, it suggests John is intellectually disabled.
still waiting your response........
