The cancellations were somewhere between five and seven million - you're entitled to your own opinion not your own facts.
Missing from the data is the percentage of each of the political leanings previously insured. Rather than making the questionable assertion that Republicans were less likely to sign up because of opposition to the program it may well be that Republicans were much more responsible in the past and there were fewer uninsured who needed to sign up.

Enforcing Islamic Law at Brandeis

Is there anyone more suicidal than a liberal progressive Jew? Brandeis University was founded as a secular Jewish sponsored school. It was founded in the late 40s at the time of Israel's declaration of statehood. One of the principles of that statehood was, "never again." Kowtowing to CAIR and the other Muslim Brotherhood pressure groups is tatamount to welcoming a latter day holocaust. If there is anyplace the evil of Islamic Jihadism and Sharia practice should be shouted from the bell tower it is at a respected Jewish founded institution.
Interesting use of Walter Lippmann - he screwed up with a column in the 1932-33 interregnum - (in those days inauguration was March 4th) when he made the serious recommendation that FDR should take dictatorial powers for a short? time. That was the clearest statement of how progressives truly expect to govern. FDR did not formally take autocratic executive power - he just exercised it in fact - kind of like BHO is doing now.

Behind the Russian Rage

Understanding his geopolitical and historical motivation for his action is not the same as condoning it. We were extremely unfortunate that George H W Bush ran such a lousy campaign in 1992 because the three presidents who have followed (including his son) have done a terrible job of understanding what it would take to integrate a new Russia into a liberal world order. And of the three Obama is far and away the most ignorant and naïve. I don't see anything good happening any time soon. Though I do think that a really creative administration could bring the Russians to a much more cooperative and responsible posture. There are so many issues which are existential to both countries that a two way accommodation is a Win-Win possibility.
Remember also that Hobby Lobby through their insurance DOES pay for contraception - there are only 4 of 20 of the approved methods of birth control that the object to being compelled to pay - those four the government admits the mechanism of contraception is abortion of a fertilized embryo.
Georgia : ID laws upheld in 2007 - leaving out the 2008 election because of the Obama effect and taking the 2010 midterm where he wasn't on the ballot. 2010 versus 2006 (the last mid term before the ID law: Minority participation at the polls UP 44%. It seems that our black brethren think just like Caucasians and vote in greater numbers when we have more faith in the fairness of the system. The results are just empirical fact.
Federal Judge just upholds Kansas proof of citizenship requirement for registration - and orders Federal government to include that requirement on the motor voter form in KS and AZ.

Spring Clean Government

Better yet let's repeal the 17th Amendment and make Senators responsible to the legislatures of their states. Of all the great Senators in our history the great majority were appointed not popularly elected. There was a reason the writers of the Constitution had one House popularly elected - which was supposed to be the more powerful in that it controlled the purse strings - and one House appointed which was supposed to look out for the interests of their individual state and handle those things which required long and careful deliberation - treaties and Supreme Court appointments. Two things the founders feared greatly were an overreaching oppressive central government and pure democracy - and they crafted an amazingly elegant system to control both - unfortunate the progs have screwed both up with one amendment.
