Those on the left and the right have always contended whether economic outcomes for any given set of individuals is the business of government. But few, on the left or right, dispute that government should work to assure that every American starts the game under fair conditions.
It is insulting that liberals pretend to care about the poor yet fight any acknowledgment of what has failed and block efforts to move forward with what can succeed. Despite mountains of data showing the fruitlessness of secularism and government dependency, the liberal black establishment fights to hold these communities hostage to these destructive forces.

That we have law â€“ The Religious Freedom Restoration Act under which the owners of Hobby Lobby sued the federal government â€“ that assures that no federal law will substantially burden individuals in the practice of their religion? Paying for contraception would violate the Christian principles of Hobby Lobbyâ€™s owners.
When Hamas joined the Palestinian government on June 2, the United States recognized the new government, and there was no indication that the substantial funding Palestinians get from American taxpayers would be impacted. Business as usual would continue.
