"Hoffa, sent a strongly worded letter to Democratic leaders demanding tweaks in the law to preserve the "well being of our members, along with millions of other hardworking Americans."The letter also warned that, if unchanged, Obamacare would "destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.""

<quoted text>You're a waste of space. the topic is why does Obammy interject his racist, divisive opinions only when it involves white on black perceived crimes. so better not kill your affirmative action ambulance chaser. but he can kill you without comment from Obammy or making the newspaper.
This racist point is something right wing crazies are always trying to keep to the fore.

But it keeps getting harder and harder since people are losing interest in idiots who cry wolf all the time.

Shouldn't a woman make an informed decision before making a life-changing decision and going through with an abortion?

Even if some think abortion is not killing a life - just in case it is?

Who would have a problem with that? Seriously. And, if so, why?

One man dead and another injured after gunfire erupts in Brooklyn
An 18-year-old man was killed after being shot twice in the chest and a 16-year-old was wounded by a shot to the leg when a gunman ambushed them on Miller Ave. in East New York.

the above only matters to Obammy and his BFF Sharpton if
the above were shot by WHITE Hispanics while on a neighborhood watch patrol OR police officers. otherwise, no protests, no presidential speeches, just another day like all days in the 'hood.
but, but, but... if Obammy had a son he could have looked like the 18 year old
or it could have BEEN Obammy.
All that hate is gonna burn you up inside.

How did Trayvon know he was about to become a murder victim? Because a concerned neighbor was keeping an eye on his neighborhood? Trayvon didn't even know Zimmerman had a gun.
Perhaps if he did, he would have kept walking.
Zimmerman could have pulled the gun as soon as he saw Trayvon - before his nose was fractured and he was being straddled on the ground. And long before he kept repeatedly screaming for help.
You don't know what Trayvon knew or when he knew it because he is dead. He is dead because Zimmerman shot him through the heart. Eye-witnesses disagreed as to who was on top, when they were on top, and who was screaming. Demonstrations in the courtroom show that it would have been close to impossible for Zimmerman to have gotten his weapon out from where he claimed he was or for Trayvon to have seen it there in the dark...you're so clearly pro-Zimmerman because you're a racist, totally incapable of logical deduction--as apparently were three members of the all-white, one hispanic female jury. Shame B-37 lost her book deal; wonder if E-54 is upset that Faux called him a black alternate?

A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a new North Dakota law that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected – as early as six weeks into pregnancy, calling the law "clearly invalid and unconstitutional."

seems like every law they pass is unconstitutional.

Lily, read Wisconsin's bill.
Stop perpetrating these lies.
Think progress is lying to you and every liberal who willingly believes them.
The law does not state anything about a transvaginal ultrasound - much less a "vaginal probe" in Virginia either.
The word "ultrasound" is the word used in both bills. Liberals just decided to add their own interpretation.
Even if a woman seeking an abortion has to see that life first before making an informed decision - then so be it.
You liberals are becoming much too barbaric with your progressive liberalism mentality.
A woman should make an informed decision before going through with an abortion which is life-changing. In the case of abortion, life-destroying.
Why would you or anyone else possibly have a problem with that? Are you afraid she might just decide to keep the baby after seeing it?
Seriously. What's wrong with you liberals? I mean it.
What makes you, a doctor, or political bureaucrat think that a woman needs your approval as to making informed decisions? You don't think women can make cognitive decision on their own? You don't see doctors forcing poor girls who want their baby what life will likely be like having their baby under those circumstances. Why is that? Are you going to help all these poor young girls raise their children, since you're trying to force them to have them? That's you republicans problem! You don't worship God, you think you are God &, your way of thinking should be law. This coming from an anti abortion dude by belief but, I'm not ignorant enough tip spew my beliefs on the entire population. That's their bodies, their decisions, & they will be judged by their own God. In every essence of the words," you have nothing to do with their decisions!"

Republicans do have a problem with it. They don't think women can be trusted to make up their own mind on abortion or not. The GOP thinks men have to make that decision for women.

"“The attorney general of the United States is engaged in a shocking extrajudicial publicity campaign. Eric Holder is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion because he knows he wouldn’t have a prayer of convicting him in a court of law. Worse, in doing so, Holder is quite deliberately stoking resentment and tension — under the guise of leading a ‘national conversation’ about race,” McCarthy writes.“At precisely the same time, the United States secretary of health and human services has loathsomely injected race into the debate over Obamacare. Toward the conclusion of this week’s NAACP grievance fest, Kathleen Sebelius took the podium to demagogue Obamacare opponents. The fight against them, she inveighed, is reminiscent of “the fight against lynching and the fight for desegregation.”She made these inflammatory remarks just as violence was erupting over Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin shooting, no small thanks to Holder’s accomplice, Al Sharpton"

Never let a crisis go to waste.

You're a fkn idiot, Zimmerman told police that he was reaching into his coat pocket when the stranger punched him. Trayvon is from a part of the state that is all too familiar with violence and would likely not wait to see what George pulled from his pocket.

Martin was being followed for nearly a quarter mile by "someone" in a $30K plus pick up truck and had no reason to suspect that the guy driving was not armed. For all Martin knew the guy could have been a cop or an authentic security guard, but the guy never made any attempt to communicate waiting for Martin, the stranger, to speak first.

Civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should not have prejudged Martin, but one black neighbor of the Zimmermans said recent history should be taken into account.

“Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. I’m black, OK?” the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes.“There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood,” she said.“That’s why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin.”

Someone named Sarah responded to this:

"I used to be an Obama narrative, and then I took an arrow to the knee.

"Honestly, it’s not just that this is the most dishonest and divisive administration EVER. It’s that it seems to be composed entirely of twelve year old kids. They start these 'narratives' with no other end in sight than getting elected, and they do it — yes, I have to say it — STUPIDLY. So they backfire. The thought that these idiots are handling foreign policy probably by 'meme' and 'what I learned in elementary school' has me waking up in the night in cold sweats.

"Mr. President, your dog is cooked."

...I agree wholeheartedly with Sarah.
