I can't pick this week's lottery numbers, but I'll take a shot at how this turns out.

He will sign it into law, but then have a signing statement that says he didn't want to sign it into law.

Just like the NDAA or when they pass ACTA this month or the other myriad of measures to abolish the Bill of Rights in the near future.

One party is the right leg and the other party is the left leg of the same monster

"But when a long train of ABUSES and USURPATIONS, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to REDUCE THEM under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security"

"The bill passed in the House of Representatives with only three dissenters!!!!"

Isn't the House full of new angry Tea Party Express activists who have been there less than two years???

I guess they lose their principles QUICKLY once elected and they get all those government benefits.

These are the same unprincipled people who will vote for Romney!!!

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

as has every POTUS since Nixon, it's to be expected at this point.
but go ahead and make this a partisan issue, because clearly all the republicans voted against it.
oh, no, wait, it was all the democrats that voted against it.
oh, my bad, only 3 people voted against it.
Rep. Justin Amash
Rep. Paul Broun
Rep. Keith Ellison

Obviously "restricting protest rights" isn't the aim of this legislation; however, it does seem that it could be an unwarranted restriction on potential protest.

I can't support this, and Obama shouldn't, either.

Wasn't the vote for the rights-restricting Patriot Act unanimous? Don't Republicans vote for enhanced "security" and restricted demonstration rights, too?

I'm not letting Dems off here, but Repubs are at least equally guilty.

All in the name of the "War on Terrorism," that horrible Bush-era monstrosity that Obama's picked up and carried on and which shows no signs of going away.

Any kind of "security," or "Defense," or "restriction" can be justified this way. And in the end, the terrorists have won.

that was nothing but a mean spirited, totally unwarranted remark...

had a right wing talk show host said something THAT derogatory, THAT insensitive, THAT blatantly untrue, you would have jumped all over his sh1t...

oh, wait, you did, didn't you.

hypocrisy doesn't suit you.

it's not hypocritical; it's true.
none of the news shows are talking about HR347, but they have plenty of time to talk about who is paying for birth control, your assumption that I was speaking about Mr. L specifically is naive, I'm talking about ALL of them, from PBS to FOX news, even Jon Stewart isn't talking about HR347.
.
are you trying to suggest that contraceptive coverage is MORE important than this?
take a look around, this thread has less than 20 comments, which means that nobody cares about our civil rights, just so long as the RCC doesn't have to offer unsubsidized insurance coverage that includes contraception.
because THATS what's important right?
THATS the biggest issue of the day right?

It happened to be true, and you happen to be a whining, disingenuous little punk as always.

Why are you still defending Limbaugh?

that's what you said...
and, it's a nasty, insensitive remark.
it's NOT what you SAID you said...
but, you do this EVERY time.

btw, i wasn't suggesting ANYTHING other than exactly what i said.

btw,btw...there MIGHT be a reason no news outlet is speaking about the bill...could be by request of the same guy that told the news outlets to turn the contraceptive mandate debacle into bullshit stories that republicans are opposed to birth control, and, are at war with women.

if ANY public person said
"we are so screwed.

I would stand and applaud them.

(for the record, I was talking about you and me, and every other poster here on Topix that chooses to ignore HR347, but continues to post on threads about Mr. L)
