when the real world and what you were told to parrot conflict, which do you think should change?
i shall give you a quiet, private moment for reflecting on the fact that your entire world view has just been shattered...
And that explains the entire world giving Obama a vote of no confidence with a slam dunk case on Syria.

Do you even listen to yourself?

If the Democrats had not been so full of themselves after Obama put jobs and the economy behind social engineering and his "legacy" and ramrodded that monstrosity down everyone's throats but had, instead, worked with Republicans to come up with a more palpable and bipartisan plan that everyone would have gotten on board with, Obama wouldn't have egg all over his face.
And Pelosi and Reid wouldn't look like the foolish people they've always been. Just exposed.
Carol quit lying.

Republicans chose not to participate. Those that tried were admonished by the Republican leadership.

If the Republicans wanted to fix healthcare, perhaps they should of at least tried in the nearly 12 consecutive years of Republican run Congress.

The fact is after they blocked Healthcare reform in 1993 they did NOTHING to fix healthcare. They didn't give a rat's ass about the uninsured., They didn't care that premiums were rising 8-10% a year. They didn't care people with pre-existing couldn't get insurance, they didn't care that people's policies were cancelled when they got sick.

So if you are a dumbass Republican complaining about the ACA, blame your own party for their inaction.

<quoted text> Congress DID authorize setting of a minimum wage, overtime rates, etc. to the President who dutifully executes those laws. DBWriter needs to read the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 passed by Congress and signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. While President Franklin Roosevelt was in Bedford, Mass., campaigning for reelection, a young girl tried to pass him an envelope. But a policeman threw her back into the crowd. Roosevelt told an aide, "Get the note from the girl." Her note read,
I wish you could do something to help us girls....We have been working in a sewing factory,... and up to a few months ago we were getting our minimum pay of $11 a week... Today the 200 of us girls have been cut down to $4 and $5 and $6 a week.
To a reporter's question, the President replied, "Something has to be done about the elimination of child labor and long hours and starvation wages."
-FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT Public Papers and Addresses, Vol. V New York, Random House, 1936), pp. 624-25.
Congress cannot give any authority to anyone in any office that the Constitution does not give to them, you moron.

Now, show us the text from that law you say Congress gave to the President some authority the Constitution didn't give to him.

Where's that text....

Ok. Let's educate you on how things work in the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America.
No law can give any authority to anyone not given to that office by the Constitution.
You cannot change the Constitution by writing a law.
All laws must not violate the Constitution, or they are invalid because they are unconstitutional.
Within the United States, there is no document in the world that has higher authority than the Constitution.
Do we need to fight another war over that principle?
You should go back to the people who claimed to educate you and get your money back. You should claim damages from the person who taught you civics.
Either you believe the Constitution grants Congress the right to pass legislation or you don't. Make up your mind. Congress passed an act which grants the President the power to control wages for Federal contract workers. That is a Fact. No one gives a damn whether you like it or not.

I tried something interesting this weekend, I spit on an american soldier. You know what happened? I discovered I'm not a good spitter, hardly any phlegm.. no velocity... he didn't even know I'd done it... I'm home now and am practicing... Tell your kids, DON'T join the army.

Spitting on someone takes practice. Hitting someone yards away is nearly impossible. I suppose if it were my son or daughter I could've done it because they'd be right next to me, but, in this case, it was a pointless exercise.

You are meant to earn something from this: to wit: whenever you hear tell of american soldier being spat upon as a justification for warlike behavior, remember my words, it's a LOT harder than you might think...

If Bush had never invaded Iraq, we would not be involved in this fight with the Middle East. They have been fighting amongst themselves for decades and we should let them work it out without our interference unless part of an international force to prevent civil rights violations.

Harry Reid lied through his teeth about Romney's taxes and never did name his "source".
Pelosi apparently has the same unnamed "source" who told her Republicans want children to go hungry.
Are you really this stupid? Or just unbelievably this gullible?
The name of the source was already well known doll. FYI, Romney never did release all his tax forms.

Ron Paul called Romney a liar on national TV and laughed at him. Newt Gingrich all but called him a thief. He wasn't even among your first three choices for the (R) nomination and you begrudgingly voted for him only because you're a party loyalist.

Romney had a chance in 07, before America learned that he's a disgusting bigoted POS. The (R's) went with McCain-Palin and literally handed the Presidency to Obama.
