Americans have mixed feelings about the Supreme Court's latest rulings, with a majority disapproving of its opinion on the Voting Rights Act, but in favor of two pro-gay marriage opinions, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll released Wednesday.

Just a third said they agree with the court's decision to strike down part of the Voting Rights Act, while 51 percent disagreed.

Knowledge about, and disapproval of, the VRA decision was especially high among African Americans, 71 percent of whom expressed disagreement with the ruling. Just 3 percent were undecided, while 16 percent of all adults had no opinion.

Other racial groups, however, also disapproved: Hispanic Americans disagreed by 50 percent while 40 percent agreed, and whites disagreed by 48 to 33 percent.

Slowly? Haha...come on Homer, we've know it's been coming since the Supreme Court decision. The problem is that the law is such a piece of sht, no one knows how to implement it. I've been part of the meetings between companies and insurance agents. They don't even know how to determine an employee count under the law. It's a mess!
Morsi never had a chance to implement his oppressive agenda. He should've agreed to a 1-year implementation delay to fool everyone.

They have no desire whatsoever to reach any kind of compromise with this president. Read 99% of the posts here by rightwingers, they suggest never working with this president and obstructing everything he tries to do.
And then have the gall and the audacity to blame the president, you can't make this stuff up!

Technically-when it comes to the reqs for POTUS of the USA, yes, it would.
Mostly because the reqs for POTUS did not actually involve the residential status of his mother, as she was not the one running for the office of.
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
Geez Homer. It's pretty simply stated...
Well since Obama was born in Hawaii it's a moot point. Did you vote for McCain? He was born in the Panama Canal Zone. Will you vote for Ted Cruz? He was born in Canada.

Come on, the law was signed in 2010, everyone(well almost everyone it seems) knew it was to be slowly implemented over a period of a few years.

I loved it when Bush was golfing, clearing brush, vacationing in Africa, overseas massaging foreign heads of state, kissing Saudi princes, it meant he wasn't back here signing bills and/or starting more wars. Homer ever the optimist.

Bottom line is that Obama's Egyptian puppet is getting thrown out on his ass (or worse).
That's silly ,Galt. President Obama had nothing to do with President Morsi being elected in Egypt then being removed from office by the Egyptian army on grounds of national security --although American-Egyptian relations appear steady. Do you remember that President Obama had warned Morsi to give greater credence to forming wide-net political support for his policies and a new Egyptian Constitution involving all Egyptians ,rich and poor, women, men, young and old. In America's past too, we had our political turmoil in forming 'a more perfect union' and U S Constitution that was called the " American Civil War".

It appears that BO's favorite Islamist, Morsi, has been overthrown in Egypt:
“We swear to God to sacrifice with our blood for Egypt and its people against any terrorist, extremist or ignoramus,” the military said in a statement.“Long live Egypt and its proud people.”

If only our national leaders had taken such an oath the day Barack Obama became POTUS!

What is this sudden support for those who steal America's secrets??
As Bush said "You're either with us or against us."
And wasn't it Bush who started PRISM and defended the NSA wiretapping??
Wasn't the first wiretap scandal in 2006?? Who was President??
Latest Wiretap Scandal Part of Long Pattern
Snowden is definitely against us. To say otherwise is stupid.

""By JAMES BOVARD • June 19, 2006
The National Security Agency has been tracking the calls of millions of Americans and constructing the “largest database ever assembled in the world,” USA Today revealed on May 10. The nation’s biggest telephone companies have apparently turned over masses of personal records to the feds, allowing Uncle Sam to build up a database of the phone numbers of incoming and outgoing calls of Americans. The revelations blew to smithereens the Bush administration’s story that only international calls were being tapped without a warrant as part of its so-called “terrorist-surveillance program.”
Bush announced on the day the story came out,“The intelligence activities I authorized are lawful.” However, this may be the result of Cheney logic—that the Supreme Commander has the right to do whatever he feels necessary to protect the public.(The New York Times noted that Cheney and his top aides had been the most aggressive advocates of warrantless wiretaps and rounding up Americans’ phone data.)
In his weekly radio address two days later, Bush sought to quell the controversy:“This week, new claims have been made about other ways we are tracking down al-Qaeda to prevent attacks on America.” Yet unless one considers every American presumptively an al-Qaeda accomplice, the domestic phone intercepts have nothing to do with tracking down al-Qaeda. Bush also declared,“We are not trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans.” Unless the vast majority of Americans are guilty, there is no way to assert that the feds are not trolling through millions of innocent people’s lives.""
http://jimbovard.com/blog/2013/06/06/latest-w...
----------
So what's the difference?? This spying on Americans has gone on since 9-11. Problem is, you defended it when Bush did it.
Sorry, but I'm not going to read all that BS. My statement was simple.

"I don't think Snowden is as important as he or the media are making him out to be."

You want to try and turn it into a pissing match, knock yourself out. I'm not playing.
