I'm Working Current Events Links Edition

I hope everyone has had a wonderful time celebrating this Independence Day weekend.  I had a good time watching fireworks last night.  I have been working as a home health aide for close to 2 months.  Even though I am still dealing with quite a few health issues - bad pain - I know my faith has given the grace to be able to work. I really like helping people who can't do for themselves.  I have been pretty busy lately.

Both the Obamacare and gay marriage Supreme Court rulings weren't much of a surprise to me.  I was hoping and praying for a different outcome but with the makeup of the Supreme Court I had a feeling the outcome was going to be as it is.  To me it is sad that the persons who makeup the Supreme Court determine the outcome with their opinions or beliefs and not the constitution, which is the bedrock of our country.  I agree with Louie Gohmert when he said that Justices Kagan and Ginsberg did not follow the law due to the impossibility of their impartiality in the gay marriage case when they have performed same-sex marriages.  It should have been a no brainer for those two justices to have seen the obligation according to law for them to recuse themselves from the gay marriage case.

Now amidst the GOP we are having an immigration debate.  We have presidential contender Donald Trump's immigration comments.  Plus we have other presidential candidates like Jeb Bush denouncing Trump's comments.  As of this weekend Trump stands by his comments. It is my belief that we need to secure our border. I would say most who come across the border without the proper paperwork are looking for a better life.
