DC defied the Heller decision with NO consequences. Just as Rahm Emanuel has done in Chicago. DC will defy Heller 2 as well, you can bet on it.
If it is unconstitutional, it is unconstitutional. Since when is there a stay for complying with the Constitution. DC is merely trying to get around complying with the 2nd Amendment just as they did with the SCOTUS Heller decision. They will simply recraft their ordinances to have the same effect of denying law abiding citizens. The ONLY reason for a stay is an appeal. Same with Helbig. But they should not be able to infringe the Bill of Rights for 90 days or more for their convenience. The ruling should be in effect.

None of this would be happening if Obama hadn't cancelled Bush's program to build those defensive missles in Poland and the Czech Republic.

So the victim (us, at Pearl Harbor) is the criminal? FDR's aim was to cut off Japan's ability to wage wars of imperialist conquest accompanied by appalling atrocities with her neighbors. Japanese bombed Pearl to get us out of the way. Stop trying to rewrite history, buddy, you are all wet.

That's because they were waging aggressive war with their neighbors and China, committing wartime atrocities and we had NO obligation to give them OUR oil to facilitate and enable that. We had not only every right to do starve the beast but a duty to do it. Their attack on Pearl Harbor was to get us out of the way and promote their imperialism and conquest of the Philippines and Far East. Are you saying we had no right to cut off OUR oil supplies to them?! You are very ignorant or very stupid.

How is it interfering in the "internal affairs" of Russia to oppose their voracious gobbling up INDEPENDENT nations that border them? If we decided to shoot down commercial airliners flying over Canada or swallow Canada up would that be just "our internal affairs?" Uhh..no.

Please support your contention that Democrats will get back the House. I haven't seen anything that supports that. I have seen that Dems will retain the Senate (by one or two votes). But not the House. And Hillary may not even get the nomination. The even worse Elizabeth Warren may snatch it from her.

Latest estimates and calculations are that Dems will hold onto the Senate. This nation has been hijacked for the next century at least, it seems.
Don't think it was blackmail except in the sense that he was scared to death of overturning the signature legislation of the First Black President. That was enough to trump the Constitution in his eyes. Deplorable, disgraceful, and shameful but there you are.
Happily for the Administration, Roberts does not recognize that "it is a generally recognized rule of statutory interpretation that statutes shall first be interpreted according to the plain meaning of the statutory language." He happily rewrote the ACA to turn a "penalty" into a "tax." He will do so again, illegally and unconstitutionally.
