Barack Obama, our next President

It changes the process in that before, subject jurisdictions had to prove legality before changing laws, now they'll have to go through injunctions just like all the other states.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is outraged—outraged—that the majority of the Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, writing in his dissent that "We have no power under the Constitution to invalidate this democratically adopted legislation" and that the decision represents an "exalted notion of the role of this court in American democratic society." Because, don't you know, DOMA was passed by Congress democratically and therefore the Court should not touch it.

One question: Where was this Scalia when the Supreme Court was deciding to gut the Voting Rights Act, which was renewed by Congress in 2006?

The pre-existing conditions part would have been an acceptable democratic contribution to the republicans no-nonsense, common sense and rational solutions in lowering the costs of health care.

But democrats aren't interested in no-nonsense, common sense and rational solutions that lower the cost of anything.

The point of course, is that President Obama will not be reelected in 2016?
Democrats voter registration efforts received a major boost yesterday. Guess how?
Missing your daily Benghazi post?
by giving left leaning ACORNesque groups funding via ObamaCare?

'...What is known so far suggests that California politicians are exploiting health reform to enroll millions of the uninsured in the Democratic Party and fill the coffers of left-wing interest groups with taxpayer money. Here are the facts:

California lawmakers passed a law requiring that voter registration be part of the health-insurance exchange. Last month, Covered California announced $37 million in grants to 48 organizations to build public awareness about the opening of the health exchange. Of the 48 groups that got grants, only a handful are health-care-related.

The California NAACP got $600,000 to do door-to-door canvassing and presentations at community organizations. Service Employees International Union, which says its mission is “economic justice,”received two grants totaling $2 million to make phone calls, robo-calls and go door-to-door.

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor AFL-CIO got $1 million for door-to-door, one-on-one education and social networking. It describes its role as “engaging in both organizing and political campaigns, electing pro-union and pro-worker candidates.”

Community Health Councils, a California organization with a long history of political activism against fracking, for-profit hospitals, state budget cuts and oil exploration, got $1 million to conduct presentations at community and neighborhood meetings and one-to-one sessions.

These groups, closely allied with Democrats, are being funded by your tax dollars to conduct “outreach”— the kind of phone-banking and door-to-door canvassing that activists do to turn out the vote. They will turn out the uninsured to enroll in the exchanges and in the Democratic Party.

California’s actual enrollment process is also outsourced to community groups, unions and health clinics. An additional $49 million is budgeted to pay them the first year, but in future years, these assisters will be paid out of the premiums collected by the exchange. The template is repeated in every state. ObamaCare creates a permanent, nationwide stream of funding for unions and community activists.

Assisters will also guide the uninsured to sign up for whatever non-health social services they may be eligible for — including welfare, food stamps and housing assistance, according to the manual prepared for California’s implementation.

Anyone who remembers the days of James Curley, Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall should get the picture. If you were poor or a newcomer, you went to the local ward boss and got whatever you needed, in exchange for your vote. The difference is that back then, politics was local. Now the Obama health law is institutionalizing this corrupt style of politics across the country to create a permanent, Democratic voting majority.'

Let's just do a "fact-based" test, shall we?

1. Under which presidents was the CRA created and expanded?
2. Are there more democrats including blacks and Hispanics in California or more republicans?
3. Do all democrats condone abortion?
4. Which party's leadership started more wars since the 1900s?

If you answered:
1. Carter and Clinton.
2. More democrats in California.
3. No.
4. The Democratic Party.

Then you passed.

Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis

Fresh off the false and politicized attack on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, today we’re hearing the know-nothings blame the subprime crisis on the Community Reinvestment Act — a 30-year-old law that was actually weakened by the Bush administration just as the worst lending wave began. This is even more ridiculous than blaming Freddie and Fannie.

It has lately become fashionable for conservative pundits (Larry Kudlow, George Will) and disgruntled ex-bankers (Vernon Hill, for example, in his March 7 American Banker editorial) to blame the current credit crisis on the Community Reinvestment Act. This is patent nonsense. The sub-prime debacle has many causes, including greed, lack of and ineffective regulation, failures of risk assessment and management, and misplaced optimism. But CRA is not to blame.

First, the timing is all wrong. CRA was enacted in 1977, its companion disclosure statute, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) in 1975. While many of us warned against bad subprime lending before the turn of the millennium, the massive breakdown of underwriting and extension of risky products far down the income scale-without bothering to even check on income-was primarily a post-2003 phenomenon. To blame a statute enacted in 1977 for something that happened 25 years later takes a fair amount of chutzpah.

No, blaming Clinton because the bad loans happen while he was president is like saying," I used my car for 5yrs &, you used it 1 day for 3hrs,& it broke down while in your possession. That's like me saying that's your fault!

Coming to a guard rail near you. A radar/camera device that is fitted into a section of guard rail. The device is turned on when a motion detector senses a speeding vehicle. As the vehicle passes by the camera takes a picture of the offending vehicle and sends it, along with the speed, to a policeman waiting further down the road. A cousin of the red light cameras look for these to appear on all major interstates and highways. Betting in the near future they will cut out the police and just send the owner of the vehicle a ticket in the mail.
