Tim, I agree with you. The PPACA must go. However, I think you're wrong about the White House, HHS, or the members of Congress who voted for the bill not seeming to have a clear idea where the money has gone. They know full well where the money is going; into their backers pockets.
College campus's are not Congress. And a state college/university is not the federal government. If they wish to restrict the speech of people on campus, that is their right. However, any college/university that does so should never receive a single penny from the U.S. government; either via grants, subsidies, or even student loans. That's a simple hurdle. Take any college or university's policy manual that shows they restrict speech on campus to your Congressperson or Senator, and demand that they cut funding to those particular education institutions.

It's important to listen to Al Sharpton, and then counter, loudy, every falsehood this monster utters.

We Are A Nation Of Narcissists

By and large I agree with everything you say. Heck, the entire GBLT movement is narcissism at its greatest. The only problem I have is you mentioning tweets and posts on news stories. Those are the interpersonal communications media of today, and possibly the future. The opportunity to sit for hours at the local pub after working in the fields, the docks, the smithy discussing politics or current events: local, state, national, or international, don't really exist anymore. Our discussions occur in cyberspace, either live via Skype, or punctuated by reading and posting via FB, Twitter, or even *gasp* Townhall comment threads.
Immigration should be based on the needs of this country, and the abilities of those desiring to come here. Unrestrained compassion will merely impoverish us all. Jeb Bush, and far too many like him, doesn't know anything about illegal immigration or love for that matter. By Bush's definition, Saddam Hussein's murderous reign over the people of Iraq was an "act of love" since he did it to benefit his family. I went looking for some advice on 'illegal immigration" in the Bible. John 10:1-42 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber." Yes, that's a parable and not Jesus actually talking about illegel entry. However, the analogy is appropriate. Sneaking into a place that's not yours makes you a thief and a robber. That's what illegal aliens are. In biblical times, the consequences of those invasions were the loss of property and the rightful inheritances of the people living there. Times haven't changed. Mic 2:2 "They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud people of their homes, they rob them of their inheritance." While the punishment for theft wasn't death, it did require many-fold restitution. Depending on where you're looking, anywhere from 4 to 7 times the value taken. Illegal aliens steal jobs, housing, purchasing, and other opportunities from citizens and those who come here legally. Most don't have anything we can take, so deportation is about all we can do. Now some folks might counter with Matthew 25:42-45 “For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me. They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’” I agree with all of that. The problem is, illegal aliens invited themselves in. There will always be hungry, thirsty, naked, sick, criminally-behaving people trying to get into this country. Illegal aliens push aside those legitimate immigrants who are patiently standing in line waiting their turn to be invited in. Just how compassionate would Jesus have been, or should we be, to someone who’d shove a grandmother or small child into a ditch so they could jump to the front of the line? Illegal immigration is wrong. It is wrong to ignore it, it is wrong to not punish it, it is a crime against all of the people of the United States. And those who want to forgive it, or fail to oppose it, are helping to steal from all of us.

Tax Refund Siezure

Don't expect reason from the IRS agents, they're not reasonable. Don't expect justice from the tax courts, there isn't any. These cases need to go to a fully juried court immediately. And the jury needs to nullify the law in every single case.
Bundy, whose ancestors have inhabited the disputed land since the 19th century. If I read the history right, the Feds seized the land from the Bundy's without even invoking eminent domain. Which means every legal case brought against Bundy for the past 20 years is based on false premises.
Some VERY interesting background on the Bundy Ranch showdown. It seems Harry Reid has some blood on his hands, and a whole lot of cow pies on his shoes.
I'm sure the attorneys for the student newspaper are attempting to indict Myers on the trumped up charge of 'solicitation' because of his blog post on his personal blog urging people to throw away the publication. That whole 'solicitation' statute needs to be completely, totally, and permanently repealed as a violation of the 1st Amendment. Hell, I've even been 'visited' by LE agents under that guise for opinions posted in various TH threads.
