You better sit down.
According to the Las Vegas Sun:
Union leaders are concerned with a provision of the law that call for the provision of health insurance for people who work more than 30-hours per week, meaning workers’ hours could be cut so that employers don’t have to provide health insurance.
Danny Thompson, the head of the Nevada State AFL-CIO told the Sun in an interview this week,“We were told that if you liked the health insurance you had, then it would be left alone,” he said.“Well, it hasn’t been left alone.”

The delay tee'ed them off too.
Since when does any president willy-nilly change any law of the land?
Obama thinks HE'S the government.
Just because they have concerns about certain parts and provisions of the law doesn't mean that they want to scrap the whole thing as you've suggested Carol. That part of your statement is still a lie. The law isn't perfect and could use some tweaking to make it better but that's not going to happen as long as the GOP has the singular mindset that it should be repealed. The President isn't changing the law he's simply pushing part of the implementation off for a year so that companies have more time to adjust to the new rules. Presidents have had this flexibility for years. If you really want an example of a president not enforcing a law then you need only go to Ronald Reagan who stopped enforcing the Sherman Anti Trust Act and allowed big banks to become humongous "too big to fail" institutions .

With age and experience some people change for the better. Robert Byrd was one of them.

unlike conservative,, who no matter how much evidence and facts prove them wrong, they are incapable of change

Obama would confiscate law-abiding citizens guns to protect themselves from criminals who will always find a way to secure a weapon but hosts parties for rappers who fill young boys' heads with hatred and anger, glorifies guns and gangs, and instills deep-seeded disrespect for women and themselves.

And we wonder what the problem is.

Interesting that you knew all these mass murderers so well personally that you knew their political persuasion...
BTW as for Major Nidal, he's a Muslim Terrorist and against all U.S. political parties.
Pray tell, please enlighten all of us and provide some concrete evidence of your statements
first we have to ask, why is it that conservatives make huge assumptions with no basis in facts or reality?
The DemoKKKrat Party supports Muslim terrorists, beginning with the Palestinians.

Muslim terrorists are all Friends of Barack.

More than a third of Americans believe in aliens (and only 2% would try to attack if they bumped into one)
Nearly 80% believe the White House has covered up the existence of aliens
More than a third of people in the U.S. believe aliens exist - and more than 10 per cent of the population believes they have seen an alien ship in the sky.
The study from National Geographic Channel found that 80 million Americans - or 36 per cent - are certain alien spaceship exist, and of those who believe, 79 per cent are convinced the White House has kept information about other lifeforms a secret.
If an alien knocked on the door, 22 per cent would try to befriend the alien, 15 per cent would run away, 13 per cent would lock their doors, and, reassuringly, only 2 per cent would try to inflict bodily harm.
Furthermore, 55 per cent believe there are real-life Men in Black-style agents who threaten people who spot UFOs.
Brad Dancer, senior vice president of research and digital media for National Geographic, said:'We wanted the pulse on people's opinions.
'We wanted to get a sense of how Americans view UFOs, what people believe and how mainstream pop culture may or may not be playing into their opinions on it.'
In total, 17 per cent of Americans had no belief in UFOs, 36 per cent think they do, and 48 per cent are not sure.
Turning to aliens vs politics, almost 65 per cent think Barack Obama would so a better job at an alien invasion over his opponent Mitt Romney.
On a slightly less realistic note, 21 per cent would call the Hulk, 12 per cent would call Batman, and eight per cent would call Spider-Man.
The survey was commissioned for an upcoming National Geographic Channel series, Chasing UFO

seems that once again Obama wins out on (very) foreign policy. one more reason we, and carol, should be glad that he's in the WH.
Obama will surely be more successful in dealing with aliens than in dealing with any real problems.

George Wallace was an economic liberal, just as many anti-abortion evangelicals are economic liberals.

in this country all people charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty. so what you are saying is nobody should be brought to trial. do I have that right.

and since you swear that juries are always right, I guess that means you believe OJ was innocent of murder too.

glad we cleared that up

Living in a time of moral cowardice

“So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 1963

This is “tomorrow.”

Meaning that unknowable future whose unknowable difficulties Martin Luther King invoked half a century ago when he told America about his dream. If you could somehow magically bring him here, that tomorrow would likely seem miraculous to him, faced as he was with a time when segregation, police brutality, employment discrimination and voter suppression were widely and openly practiced.

Here in tomorrow, after all, the president is black. The business mogul is black. The movie star is black. The sports icon is black. The reporter, the scholar, the lawyer, the teacher, the doctor, all of them are black. And King might think for a moment that he was wrong about tomorrow and its troubles.

It would not take long for him to see the grimy truth beneath the shiny surface, to learn that the perpetual suspect is also black. As are the indigent woman, the dropout, the fatherless child, the suppressed voter, and the boy lying dead in the grass with candy and iced tea in his pocket.

King would see that for all the progress we have made, we live in a time of proud ignorance and moral cowardice wherein some white people — not all — smugly but incorrectly pronounce all racial problems solved. More galling, it is an era of such cognitive incoherence that conservatives — acolytes of the ideology against which King struggled all his life — now routinely claim ownership of his movement and kinship with his cause.

When he was under fire for questioning the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for instance, Sen. Rand Paul wanted it known that he’d have marched with King had he been of age. And he probably believes that.
