I'll bet that 'professor' gets repealed LONG before the 2nd Amendment ever will. Perhaps one of the LIEberal colleges in the N.E. might hire her...

Just how does repealing the Second Amendment remove the right to self defense? The Bill of Rights nor any other Amendment or the Constitution "GRANTS" any rights, just recognizes those pre existing rights. No where in the Second Amendment is a right "granted" so just ripping up a piece of paper has no effect on my rights. I guess the "professor" was not smart enough to realize that.

Let's just repeal the "outdated" constitution and let the socialist left dictate our everyday lives! This professor is an amoral idiot and like so many other leftist liberal morons she thinks she knows what's best for EVERYONE. This country was founded on the ideals of INDIVIDUAL freedom, not BBG knows best. Any attempt to change the constitution that REMOVES rights from the people must be viewed as treason and/or tyranny. The 2nd amendment was written in such a way as to prevent exactly what this idiot proposes. It was written to RESTRICT GOVERNMENT from repealing it for any reason. Only someone who believes that BBG will protect them 24-7-365 would buy into this garbage. Good luck with that.

YOU DO have a right to be stupid as you prove daily. We could not remove that right from you even if we tried. But of course you believed all the promises Obama made too so that in its self is proof enough. "We don't spy on your phone, we are an open government, Bengazi? What is that? You can keep your current insurance, this is NOT a tax. Government whistle blowers will be protected when telling of government miss conduct. What is "fast and furious?" Obama care will reduce everyones health costs. I didn't know about any of this! I was not informed! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Constitution? What's that? Need I go on?

WOW, did you really try to use California as a defense? WOW is your love of liberals so great you ignore the facts already presented about Bengazi? What the hell does "Bush" have to do with you being stupid? Health care for everyone? BULL, it is nothing more than a pyramid scheme to line the pockets of corrupt insurance companies and get his buddies a few kickbacks. In case you missed it (IDIOT) millions more have LOST their insurance compared to the few this law has helped. Let's help the homeless by making them pay a fine if they don't buy a house. Let's help the hungry by making it a law the MUST buy food or pay a fine. Ha ha ha you have reached an all time low on this one. I guess you didn't realize the government can't give ANYTHING away without first taking it from someone else. Ha ha ha, you are always good for a laugh when I almost consider liberals as human.

I guess you forgot the millions cut back to part time by companies so they would be exempt from the law. Also the thousands that "liberal senators have exempt in their districts for sizable contributions to their election campaigns.

Labor unions, longtime supporters of the Democratic Party, have been clamoring for changes to ObamaCare for months, and now it appears that they will get at least one of their wishes: an exemption from a tax on health insurance.

On October 30, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a typically wordy final rule whose even longer preamble included the following sentence:“We also intend to propose in future rulemaking to exempt certain self-insured, self-administered plans from the requirement to make reinsurance contributions for the 2015 and 2016 benefit years.”

Quietly sneaking proposals into preambles that few read “is how HHS often breaks controversial regulatory news,” wrote benefits lawyer R. Pepper Crutcher, Jr.

Robert Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense during the Bush and Obama administrations, said in a May interview that "given the number of surface to air missiles that have disappeared from Qaddafi's arsenals I would not have approved sending an aircraft, a single aircraft, over Benghazi under those circumstances."

STEVE HAYES, SENIOR WRITER, THE WEEKLY STANDARD: I think in some important respects we are, particularly from the three survivors, CIA affiliated survivors who testified yesterday. I think they raised some questions about the timelines. But there were also additional questions raised about these nondisclosure agreements which the agency had insisted were not presented to Benghazi survivors. There was no effort to try to keep them from talking.

And we find out that these nondisclosure agreements were presented to Benghazi survivors at a Benghazi memorial held at the CIA headquarters at Langley.

At least five CIA personnel, including government contractors, were asked to sign a second non-disclosure agreement after the Benghazi terrorist attack.

The House Intelligence Committee is trying to determine who at the agency -- or within the administration -- thought a second NDA was necessary, whether the motivation was to send a message that the agency operation and response to the attack should not be discussed and why CIA personnel in Benghazi were apparently the only agency personnel who were asked to sign a second NDA.

The State Department had previously ducked questions about whether rewards for the Benghazi attackers had been offered, citing concerns about identifying possible suspects.

The refusal to discuss the issue had led to criticism from many, mostly conservative, lawmakers who believe that the administration has badly mishandled Benghazi and may have even attempted to cover up key details about the attack that occurred on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States.

“The State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program exists to help the U.S. identify and apprehend its enemies, but the Obama Administration has not used it to pursue the terrorists who attacked our personnel in Benghazi,” Cruz said in a written statement.

The program has distributed over $125 million to more than 80 people since 1984, Cruz said.

“This legislation enables the Secretary of State to offer a substantial reward for information leading to the apprehension and prosecution of the suspects who have been identified,” Cruz said.“U.S. investigators should have all available tools at their disposal to bring to justice those who murdered four Americans in Benghazi.

Fox News is told that the House Intelligence Committee is looking into why, for instance, CIA personnel were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement after the attack.

Fox News has obtained a copy of the document signed by at least five CIA personnel. It was the second such document they were asked to sign, which is unusual. And it makes clear that disclosures could mean severe consequences, including criminal prosecution.

The CIA has repeatedly denied reports by CNN that the CIA has tried to prevent its personnel from talking to members of Congress investigating the September 2012 Benghazi attacks.
When it was first reported by CNN, Brennan released a letter showing that he strongly encouraged CIA operatives to cooperate with congressional investigators. Brennan even went so far as to directly answer a question from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers who, in a September 3 letter to the CIA director, specifically asked this question:
"Has any officer, either staff of contractor, been required to sign any nondisclosure agreement because of their presence at Benghazi or their participation in any activity related to the Benghazi attacks?"
Brennan's answer: "No."
CIA contract operatives testifying before a classified House Intelligence subcommittee on Wednesday and Thursday directly contradicted Brennan's answer.

Yet more and more Obama lies. And those like you who defend PROVEN lies.

The FACT the Obama administration and the director of the CIA and others relating to this have been caught in lies IS proof of a coverup and when under oath to congress is illegal. Of course telling lies is all this administration is good at. Scratch that, they are not even good at telling lies.

Of course you don't lie very well either. "NO INSURANCE WAS LOST" is one of your easiest to prove. When dozens of companies ADMIT they cut workers back to part time to remove their insurance and exempt themselves from Obamacare.

Congressman James Clyburn said Sunday that health insurance companies have a long history of canceling policies and are using the Affordable Care Act to drop more people.
“I’ve been hearing from my constituents for the entire 21 years I’ve been in Congress about cancellation letters that they have been getting from insurance companies. As soon as a child is born with diabetes, cannot get on health care policy. Get sick, go for your second treatment, you get a cancellation letter,” Clyburn said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is designed to eliminate such problems for consumers, said Clyburn, of South Carolina, the assistant Democratic leader in the House.

Food for thought. Suppose I "choose" to be uninsured. Or, to put it another way, I "Dont want" Health Insurance. What I want is to be self-insured. I will pay for all my healthcare costs out of pocket and choose exactly which doctors I want to see and when. As of Jan 1, it will be illeagal to excersise this freedom. I am now "forced" by law to enroll in a system I may not believe in. Does this sound familiar? Forcing people to enroll in certian programs and "carry out orders" for "the greater good"? A "greater good" that is decided by someone else? Healthcare is no longer optional. Thats what people are trying to say.
