Oops! Sorry, I should have double-checked my facts. Thanks.
Obama is obviously insensitive to Hispanics: today is also Mexican Independence Day. [sarcasm] FYI - the Mexican constitution was originally much like ours, in terms of division of power etc., until an arrogant ivory-tower type manipulating the masses changed that almost on the fly in the 1840's -- and Mexico is STILL dealing with that.
I hope your wrong, but we both know the GOP has a surrender fetish; even if the GOP has both houses with an absolute majority, and thus are able to repeal Ocare -- and have broad popular support -- they'd still try to fix it and "compromise", all while openly trashing "extremists" like the Tea Party etc. for being divisive. (And if they do not repeal Ocare after getting said majority, the GOP will never see the inside of the White House again.)
So, can those practicing their 2nd Amendment right, and who are refused service in restaurants etc. SUE those establishment, like the oh-so-tolerant gays are doing?
"Oddly, those ethnic groups who have been MOST VICTIMIZED by government, tend to be those who most vociferously SUPPORT the government, on the false (though semi-plausible) belief that they deserve free stuff from their neighbors, so long as a government does the stealing" Excellent observation. The GOP should repeat to all minorities et al. that the power to provide is the power to enslave!
If we indict Perry for a nebulous charge of "abuse of power" because he stripped funding from a government office, then we should deport Barry for his flagrant abuse of power for changing Ocare at will, using/allowing IRS to intimidate political enemies, etc. etc.
And so it begins: The political pansies of the GOP are priming the pump to explain why a full repeal of Ocare is not going to be done (despite their initial declarations promising to do so) -- even though the House has the power of the purse and more and more people are realizing that Ocare is a criminal mistake. If the GOP has a majority in both houses, and can get the votes to repeal, (even if they don't have the votes to override a veto, it'll still have a strong political effect), they will not do it. And, in 10 years, we'll still be fixing the monstrosity as the GOP will then be defending Ocare the way they're defending Medicare now.
Here we go again...the sham of "compassionate Conservatism" (which means the government giving out goodies in the name of "compassion") has morphed itself into a more "common-sense-approach" -- but it's still Big Government "Conservatism" , where the GOP is trying to behave like Demonrats in order to get more votes (and we know how well THAT works!)

Mrs. Obama's Desperate Plea

Well done, Michelle! You've just proven how gutless and inept your other half is! Not to mention hypocritical: "Equal pay for women" - the women working in the Executive Branch get paid less than men. "Immigration Reform" - Obama had actively opened up the borders, told ICE to stand down, and castigated Arizona for passing legislation to curb illegal entries -- btw, when Mexican president Calderon blasted AZ in a speech in the US Congress (!) , saying that SB1070 is a "violation of human rights" (!!), ALL the Demonrats cheered. "Raising minimum wage" - Since Washington (State) raised it's minimum wage, their economy has plummeted "Ensuring women make their own decisions about their bodies" - but while demanding that others foot the bill, all while Barry promised that "not one dime" of Obamacare will go to pay for abortions.
Christ said we are to be salt: salt brings out the real flavor of food and it preserves it, separating it from various bacteria etc. (unlike sugar, which is a wonderful breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria). These churches -- and other "mainstream" churches -- are not only not serving "meat" or even "milk", but sweet yummy Kool-Aid, the flavor of which covers up any nasty-tasting Truth but does nothing to preserve.
