You're confusing the right to the "pursuit of happiness" with guaranteed happiness.

Many who were satisfied with their insurance won't be once they find out how their doctor patient relationships will change, they may not be able to go to the best hospital or when the employers start dropping employees into the exchanges and paying fines instead of benefits.

If that wasn't true, there wouldn't have been so many delays in implementing all the provisions of ObamaCare until after the 2014 elections. There also wouldn't have been so many exlusions by unions and other organizations.

You know how much Sonic loves TPM, but somehow he overlooked this article...

Bundy's Black Bodyguard:'I Would Take A Bullet For That Man'

"
One of the supporters serving as a bodyguard for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy during his standoff with federal authorities -- and who also happens to be black -- said he would still "take a bullet for" Bundy after the rancher made racially inflammatory comments.

CNN's Dan Simon noticed Jason Bullock, a six-year Army veteran who serves as one of Bundy's bodyguards, hanging around at the Nevada ranch. Simon asked Bullock whether he found Bundy's remarks about blacks and slavery offensive.

"Mr. Bundy is not a racist," he told CNN. "Ever since I've been here, he's treated me with nothing but hospitality. He's pretty much treating me just like his own family."

Before Dave gets his panties in a bunch, this does not mean I approve of Bundy's choice of words.

i guess having an Obama impersonator tell racist jokes at a GOP gathering isn't enough to justify the GOP being called racist.
I guess having documented, proven racists as sitting VP and Senate Majority Leader isn't enough to justify the left being called racist hypocrites.

Acid rain--
The great environmental challenge of the 1980s.
Alarmist Fred Pearce claimed in 1982 in New Scientist:“The forests and lakes are dying . Already the damage may be irreversible.” And the evidence for these claims? As it turned out, little to none. A ten-year U.S. government -sponsored study involving 700 scientists and costing about $ 500 million said in 1990:“There is no evidence of a general or unusual decline of forests in the United States and Canada due to acid rain.” Data from Germany— where the scare originated—told the same story.
Acid Rain was indeed a 'great environmental challenge of the 1980's(and still is) What made acid rain manageable was Reagan , the U S Congress , and over 140 other nations listened to the climate scientists and acted quickly to mitigate acid rain damage by passing the Montreal Protocol that banned the use of CFCs . "We have President Ronald Reagan to thank for what he rightfully called this “monumental achievement.” The Montreal Protocol phased out chemicals that deplete the upper atmosphere’s ozone layer, which protects humanity and global ecosystems from harmful ultraviolet radiation. " Reagan's Big Win for the Environment: 25 Years Ago Today - http://conservamerica.org/2012/09/reagans-big...

If it wasn't for Ronald Reagan signing the international environment treaty , The Montreal Protocol , I don't think most of us would even remember a thing that Ronald Reagan did good as President . Also, to build on Ronald Reagan's success, the Obama Administration successfully negotiated upgrade Amendments to the Montreal Protocol and brought China on board for the first time in accepting the Montreal Protocol accords. However ; recalcitrant Tea Party republicans, in the pockets of Big Oil, have kicked up a fuss over the climate progress. "If the Obama administration has this great climate change program, you should be able to answer in detail and in glowing terms," Barton said. McCarthy and Moniz did exactly that. Each described the President's comprehensive June 25 Climate Action Plan in detail.

"The plan has three key pillars," said McCarthy:

Cutting carbon pollution in America
Preparing the country for the impacts of climate change; and
Leading international efforts to combat global climate change.

She also pointed out that "Many of the programs that we run are programs that Congress specifically directed us to run." House subcommittee disses alleged federal absence at climate hearing http://www.examiner.com/article/house-subcomm... via @examinercom

so what is it that black folks call someone like that guy?

Which boot licking, political blackface, shucking and bucking black conservative Uncle Tom will be the first to be trotted out by their white masters to defend Cliven Bundy?

School administrator bans distribution of US Constitution on campus

Students Merritt Burch and Anthony Vizzone, members of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at UH-Hilo, were prevented from handing out copies of the Constitution at a recruitment event in January. A week later, they were again informed by a censorship-minded administrator that their First Amendment-protected activities were in violation of school policy.

The students were told that they could only distribute literature from within UH-Hilo’s “free speech zone,” a small, muddy, frequently-flooded area on the edge of campus.

Administrators further clarified their level of respect for students’ free speech rights, making comments like,“This isn’t really the ’60s anymore,” and “people can’t really protest like that anymore,” according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

The First Amendment has not been modified since the 1960s, however, and robustly protects the rights of students at public universities to hold non-disruptive protests, speak their mind and distribute literature.

Administrators also maintained that university policy took precedent over Constitutional rights, according to the complaint.

“It’s not about your rights in this case, it’s about the University policy that you can’t approach people,” said Ellen Kusano, director of Student Affairs, according to the complaint.

Horseshit.

Ok, let's see if that idiot will stand there if the feds start shooting. Bodyguards? Why doesn't he pay his damn bills? Anyone else would have been arrested and in jail by now.

Similar to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s who claimed Amazon was threaten by global warming.

The problem was their data was coming from a report about the effects of fire and logging on the rain forest.
