"...On January 20, 2009, Roberts, who was reciting the oath from memory rather than using the customary card, uttered the word "faithfully" out of sequence.
The Constitution requires the president to say, "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.".."

Nothing is going to happen with ObamaCare until after November 2016. Even if Republicans take back the Senate next year, Obama will veto every effort to repeal it. It can be done even so, but it would be a long process - unless it collapses under its own dead next year.
any law that conflicts with federal law is meaningless and unenforceable, just a waste of time....

an empty gesture, for those who want to waste their time....

Maybe ObamaCare was what it took for states to grow a spine.

"State lawmakers must recognize that states are not mere agents of the federal government. They are not powerless, and there is nothing that requires them to assist in implementing this new, misguided federal health care agenda. They should assert their rightful authority, and represent and protect their citizens by resisting the disruptions entailed in Obamacare—taking actions that pressure the next Congress to scrap or redesign this harmful federal legislation."

Actors, politicians and commentators have paid tribute to the actor Peter O'Toole, who died on Saturday aged 81.

The star of the 1962 classic Lawrence of Arabia had been in hospital where he was being treated for a long illness.

UK PM David Cameron and Irish President Michael D Higgins were among those who paid tribute to the actor.

O'Toole's daughter Kate said the family was overwhelmed "by the outpouring of real love and affection being expressed towards him, and to us".

Mr Cameron said O'Toole's performance "in my favourite film, Lawrence of Arabia, was stunning".

If 7 million aren't signed up for higher premiums, higher deductibles and coverage they don't want by March of next year, it's going to start circling the drain, That's my prediction.

But you could be right. It could be a slow agonizing flush.

Media Works To Keep Mass Shooters’ Profiles Secret
Democratic socialist occultists make up majority of mass shooters

Satanic altar in Jared Loughner’s backyard
An undeniable pattern has continued to emerge in light of mass shootings, despite the media’s attempt to avoid connecting the dots.
In the wake of recent high-profile shootings, the media can almost immediately be seen attempting to link deranged shooters with the political right. As facts come in, the desire to connect shooters to their political ideologies quickly erodes, as the same anti-depressant taking, left-wing, occultist profile emerges.
In 2011, Tuscon, Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, who viciously murdered six people in his unsuccessful attempt to kill U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, was immedietly deemed a “right-winger.” It was soon learned that Loughner was a left-wing liberal obsessed with drugs, mind-control, dressing like the grim reaper and engaging in occult rituals.
Despite initial reports attempting to paint the same picture, information now shows that last week’s shooter in Colorado, Karl Halverson Pierson, was a devoted and “opinionated socialist” who blamed gun violence on Republicans.
Liberal lies debunked again!

Wasn't diminishing the accuracy and poignancy of the rest of your post...by commenting on just the last two sentences.

RIP

Oscar-winning actress Joan Fontaine has died aged 96.

Among Fontaine's most memorable films was the Alfred Hitchcock picture "Suspicion," co-starring Cary Grant, for which she won an Academy Award in 1942.

She is the only actor to win an Oscar for a starring role in one of Hitchcock's movies.

Fontaine's career was marked by a long-running rivalry with her sister Olivia de Havilland.

The Hollywood Reporter said Fontaine's death from natural causes at her home in Califordnia, was confirmed by the star's assistant, Susan Pfeiffer.

The honour gave Fontaine the distinction of being the only performer, actor or actress, ever to win an Academy Award for a starring role in one of Hitchcock's many movies.

De Havilland, who was nominated that year for "Hold Back the Dawn," went on to win two Oscars of her own for leading roles in the 1946 film "To Each His Own" and the 1949 picture "The Heiress."

Fontaine also earned Oscar nominations for her star turns in Hitchcock's 1940 thriller "Rebecca," co-starring Laurence Olivier, and the 1943 romantic drama "The Constant Nymph," opposite Charles Boyer.

Fontaine appeared mousy and innocent in her early movies but later carefully selected her roles and went on to play worldly, sophisticated women.

The sign-language interpreter wasn’t the only fake at the Mandela funeral. Obama and Cameron were posing as world leaders.
1980 - Reagan wins election and the Republicans' take of the U.S. Senate -- greatly helped, of course, by stagnation, the surrender of the Panama Canal, record interest rates, the hollowing-out of the American military, the Misery Index, gas lines and 60,000 Cuban troops in southern Africa and the Horn of Africa (not to mention a Communist takeover in Nicaragua and a Communist insurgency in El Salvador)-- was a rare and striking rejection of an American President named Jimmy Carter.

2013 - The Great Recession lingers. Obamacare is loosed on the land. Congress struggles with gridlock and bitter division.

The print, on-line and on-air media have divided along political lines. So, too, have the states, into Red and Blue, as the American people continue to sort themselves geographically.

Not least, foreign challenges are gathering yet again - in the East and South China Seas, in Central Asia and across the Middle East and Near East. Ten days ago, an American guided missile frigate and Chinese navy flotilla led by China's new aircraft carrier came within 200 yards of a high seas collision -- and an international incident.

Whether it's in Syria, Ukraine, Benghazi or the Senkaku Islands, men who are no friends to America are proving the truth of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's maxim that "weakness is provocative."

Sen. John McCain says he'll support the compromise budget bill passed by the House and pending in the Senate.

"I hope it will pass the Senate," the Arizona Republican said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." We must not shut down the government again. We can't do that to the people of this country and my state."

McCain said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) has pledged to review a provision concerning military retirement.
