Barack Obama, our next President

wow, those must be some good drugs you're taking....most democrats don't vote on the abortion issue.....
however, it is effectively used by the GOP, along with same sex marriage, to mobilize their base
really you should try and limit your drug use and stay in reality more often
In a normal universe, there is no possible way Obama could have won that reelection based on the economy and jobs.

It was the invisible "wars" on women, on classes, on gays and race that put him back where he never should have been the first time.

Up until the election, no one even entertained the idea on either side there was a war on anybody.

Just like now since the election is over. We're once again focused on the main priorities. Of course, we're now focused on all these scandals. But, then again, what goes around, comes around and we reap what we sow.

(More democrats voted down gay marriage in some states remember.)

Republicans are using the abortion issue while making certain their wives and daughters can get abortions?
Republicans are against abortion during campaigns but do nothing when in power.
Examples: Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and G H W Bush and G W Bush
Republicans campaign on opposing abortion.
NO ACTION from Republican Presidents.
Supreme Court has six Republican Roman Catholics.
Six votes could overturn Roe v Wade
You can't be so naive to believe all republicans are pro-life.

Just like you can't be so naive to believe all democrats are pro-choice.

An overwhelming majority of Americans would have to on board for a republican-controlled administration to overturn Roe v Wade.

They tried it once and had the votes but many feared the backlash because Americans were still deeply divided.

Republicans don't pass major legislation affecting all Americans by a strict partisan vote like democrats, i.e. Obamacare.

You are focused on being a republican, which is OK but your posts are predicable.

This test is right near the beginning of the article:

Part of the problem is the immigrants in some of these countries do not want to assimilate and end up living in segregated tight groups of the community where they feed on their dicontentment and breed the hatred of discrimination.

To want to live in any foreign country, immigrants have to be willing to assimilate and not expect to be treated differently.

That's the biggest problem as I understood it.

GMO Labeling Bill Voted Down In Senate
The people We pay to watch out for Our best interests decided - again - Thursday that it simply does not want to let the states tell the People whether or not We are eating genetically modified food.
The Senate voted overwhelmingly -- 71 to 27 -- against an amendment to the sweeping farm bill, squashing a measure that would not have required labeling of genetically modified organisms, but merely would have let states decide if they wanted to require such labeling.

"CREDO Action is joining forces with Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in the fight to repeal the Monsanto Protection Act:"One of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years." That’s what Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) calls the Monsanto Protection Act, which became law in March.
Now we have an opportunity to stop it. Senator Merkley has proposed an amendment to the Senate Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act – but it will take serious grassroots pressure to even make sure the amendment comes up for a vote.

So you would have been perfectly okay with Republicans having the power to overturn Roe v Wade along a strict partisan vote?

Republicans in Congress try and represent ALL the people. There want enough Democrats on board and their input into any major piece of legislation before it's even brought up for a vote, much less passed.

Democrats just want the rest of us to open and swallow their partisan legislation and like it.

Are you really that surprised so many of us are pissed off?

You'd be just as pissed off if Republicans had done the same with overturning Roe v Wade.

The difference is, most conservatives would understand your outrage if one party stong-armed an agenda without the other party being represented. We'd probably join you.

You liberals just can't seem to get there.

yeah, not like our european immigrants....
you would never see a Little Italy in NYC and Chicago where everyone speak Italian

Yes I knew someone was going to bring these riots up but they had nothing to do with the austerity measures that Greece faces, they were a spontaneous response to a police killing.
While the youth unemployment rate is high in Sweden it's nothing compared to Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland all members of the Euro zone.
The riots in Sweden are by Muslims, who are unwilling and unable to accept Western society, just like Muslims in the US. The riots are no more "spontaneous" than Benghazi.

You're always going to have 'assimulation problems' in an open society , but that's part of the healthy growing process of civic inclusiveness necessary in any fully functioning democracy. Just consider how long it took freed African-American slaves who were brought in chains to America to be fully accepted as citizens.Actually; the civil rights fight still goes on as the last 2012 elections proved as several republican-controlled states tried to force through voter suppression laws that would have weakened the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Luckily, the U S courts through out all of the voter i d laws proposed by republicans as unconstitutional.

Groups like MediaMatters, dedicated to social welfare.

But the real answer is a flat tax or fair tax that applies to all, with no individual or organization tax-exempt, including churches and unions. No deductions, no exemptions, no tax credits.

One more time stupid, there was no "targeting" . The only groups that were denied tax exempt status were progressive groups. Not one conservative group was denied. The IRS is required to check whether or not a group requesting tax exempt status fulfills the requirement.
The lack of "denial" is a joke.

Stalling and failure to approve is administrative denial.

And then kiss it again...

The comparison begins with Sweden in 1950:

To start with, homogenous Sweden was already an egalitarian society with few social problems before the expansion of the welfare state. It is often forgotten that in 1950 Sweden had lower taxes, fewer trade restrictions and more hours worked per working-age person than contemporary U.S.— and yet was already blessed with essentially the same flat income and wealth distribution it has today, half a century after the expansion of the welfare state.

Now, add a welfare system:

Half a century later, in the mature welfare state, the picture has dramatically changed. According to the latest figures, only 48% of non-Western immigrants are gainfully employed, which is 30 percentage points below the average. For this group, originating from places such as Turkey, Chile, the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East and North Africa, welfare dependency is nine times higher than for native Swedes.

An Iraqi immigrant to the US sums it up best:

Uri Harkman, a 60-year-old Iraqi who runs the fashion company "Jonathan Martin" in Los Angeles, says countries such as the U.S. and Australia, which reward work and entrepreneurship, are better fitted to integrating immigrants than "Social Europe." "In the European welfare systems," he says, "it is too easy to live off the government and there are simply not enough incentives to work."
