Did or did you not say the ACA gave Sebelius the power to decide everything.
It is a simple GD question., Quit running from it.
In your rambling, you began blathering about executive orders. Keep track of your sockpuppets, moron.

You saw where ObamaKare is written so "The Secretary will determine...." everything, moron.
What is so difficult to understand about that?

Refer to my post with the specifics on how "the Secretary" is commanded to make all determinations at their political whim without any specification written into ObamaKare to dictate what requirements "the Secretary" must conform to.

Let's go over this again.
Congress, nor any law, has the authority to allow anyone to violate the Constitution. This is because the Constitution has higher authority than anything... ANYTHING... in the country. Period. End of statement. End of discussion.
Unless you are rebelling against the constitutional republic. Then, I guess we'll have to fight about that.

"It's very difficult to transfer this system as it is to any other country. This system is built according to trust and this trust needs a lot of procedures and a lot of education for other countries to adopt it," Elabbar said.
The most often noted difference between American elections among the visitors was that in most U.S. states, voters need no identification. Voters can also vote by mail, sometimes online, and there's often no way to know if one person has voted several times under different names, unlike in some Arab countries, where voters ink their fingers when casting their ballots."

Your argument reads:
"The Attorney General hereby is delegated the power to approve the use for intelligence purposes, within the United States or against a United States person abroad, of any technique for which a warrant would be required,” 12333 reads.
The Constitution says:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
So, if your argument is against what is written in the Constitution, which is right?
(Start your response with your answer to this question.)
Here's the factual history, dumbass. I know these facts aren't in your indoctrination sessions.
Reagan never authorized violating the 4th Amendment to the Constitution and spy on American citizens without complying with the requirements specified in the 4th Amendment.
If you disagree, cite the event.
The Patriot Act allowed surveillance of international communication to specific terrorist organizations identified, and domestic communication specifically tied to the intelligence gained from the subject communications. There are no known cases of spying on Americans without evidence associating them with terrorist organizations.
If you disagree, cite the event.
What is happening now is exactly like what Hitler and Stalin and every mass murdering dictator did, spying on the population in general. This is a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment. Using the office of President to intentionally (assuming Obama has ever read the Constitution in his life and actually knows what's written in it) violate the Constitution is rebellion against the constitutional republic - treason. Additionally, there are existing laws preventing one agency from sharing someone's personal information with any other agency without complying with the requirements specified in the 4th Amendment. Obama (assuming he's actually in charge of anything) is in blatant violation of that law and should be sent to prison.
The NDAA of 2010 assumes Congress has the authority to give the President the authority to violate the 5th Amendment to the Constitution and just "disappear" anyone at his whim, just like Stalin did to eliminate any opposition to any part of his government when he murdered about 20 million Russians. That unconstitutional law is still in effect in every NDAA since.
Bush attorney general disappoints Hannity: Obama’s executive orders are legal

Former Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey appeared on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” Wednesday night with a message that left the host looking rather disappointed.

Rebutting the Republican talk show host, Mukasey said that President Barack Obama’s executive orders so far have been legal, as much as he finds them distasteful. He even expressed agreement with the Supreme Court’s finding that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, leaving Hannity looking perplexed.

Speaking about the president’s most significant executive actions thus far, Hannity exclaimed:“It seems me to be, by definition, abuse of power. A power grab if you will… Is it then unconstitutional in some instances?”

“I don’t think it’s unconstitutional in the sense that I don’t think it’s something you could get a court to find unconstitutional,” Mukasey replied.“We could have a debate about whether it’s consistent with the constitution or not, but there is a limited number of things that will get you into court to have that decided, and I don’t think any of the things you’ve enumerated are among them.”

After he heard about the children in Utah whose school lunches were thrown out because their parents were behind on payments, Kenny Thompson was worried about the elementary school kids he tutored and mentored in Houston, Texas. So he went in to check whether they were getting the proper nutrition.

“I’m like,‘Wow. I know that’s probably a situation at my school, and the school my son goes to, and the other schools I mentor at.’ So I came in and inquired about it,” Thompson told local station KSDK.

What he found disappointed him: Dozens of students were on “reduced” lunches, receiving cold peanut butter and jelly or cheese sandwiches instead of the full hot meals they used to receive, all because their parents had fallen behind on lunch payments that amounted to mere 40 cents a day.

So Thompson took action. He forked over $465 of his own money and zeroed out the balances on over 60 students’ accounts.

Progressives have Zero Common Sense but are heavy on Hypocrisy, a major character flaw.

Here is a typical example of (the lack of) thinking in lib land:

This is what I call “progressive governing” now that NYC has been hijacked by a lib mayor who like Obama, has a Campaign Agenda, but lacks a Governing Agenda:

A civil servant who accepts a $20 gratuity is fined and forced to retire. But when the No. 2 politician in the city forgets to disclose that she owns an incoming-producing property purchased through a government-subsidized program, give her a free pass and move on

What a load of garbage. The city just forced a sanitationman named Lenworth Dixon, 56, into retirement and fined him $1,500 because he accepted a $20 tip for hauling off a homeowner’s large load of refuse.

Talk about trashing a workingman's life.

This is plain ridiculous. Here we have a hardworking guy who picks up our garbage in the blistering summer and freezing winter, dealing with roaches, rats and maggots known as “disco rice.” He risks exposure to toxic and incendiary chemicals, crazed horn-honking motorists and nitpicking homeowners. He plows and salts our snowy roads. Here is a man whose toil we can plainly see as well-spent tax dollars. And yet he gets canned because he takes a $20 tip?

Meanwhile, back at the lib ranch:
City Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito fessed up, admitting she failed to disclose years of rental income she received, as first revealed by the Daily News.

The East Harlem Democrat, who is Mayor de Blasio’s choice for Council speaker, acknowledged the lapse after The News reported that several people lived in a three-unit building she owns during a period when she reported no rental income on her city ethics forms.

On a party-line vote, a Florida county’s Republican majority Board of County Commissioners voted Tuesday to eliminate almost one-third of Manatee County’s voting sites. The board accepted a proposal by Supervisor of Elections Mike Bennett (R) by a 6-1 vote to trim the number of precincts, despite unanimous public testimony against the move — and complaints by the lone Democratic Commissioner that it would eliminate half of the polling places in his heavily minority District 2.

In the public comment section of the meeting, all ten speeches strongly opposed the move. Representatives of the local NAACP and Southern Christian Leadership Council warned that the cuts would decrease voter turnout because voters would have to travel further to a polling place, especially among the elderly and people without cars, and noted that the cuts disproportionately affected minority-heavy precincts. Bennett dismissed these concerns,

In 2011, while serving in the Florida Senate, he endorsed making it hard to vote:“I wouldn’t have any problem making it harder. I would want them to vote as badly as I want to vote. I want the people of the state of Florida to want to vote as bad as that person in Africa who’s willing to walk 200 miles…This should not be easy.” He made that comment as he supported a voter suppression bill that reduced the number of days for early voting in Florida and helped create long lines across the state.

Why Is Bob Jones University So Nervous?

The fundamentalist college fired GRACE, the investigator it hired to look into allegations of sexual abuse there — this, as the investigative report was nearing completion.

We can’t know at this point, but BJU’s actions make it sound like GRACE was getting too close to the truth. Former BJU student Erin Burchwell, who claims she was molested at least 40 times, believes so, and told a Greenville, SC, TV station that there was a cover-up at the religious college:....

Bob Jones University is about to find out the first rule of modern crisis management: trying to prevent the truth from coming out not only fails, usually, but also causes worse problems for you in the long run. If there really were victims of abuse at BJU, may they find the strength to come forward on the record, and challenge the alleged culture of cover-up at the school. And may the news media see the smoke signals that sacking GRACE sends up, and start looking for the hidden fire at BJU.
