Whatever your thoughts are on immigration, threatening to shoot children is ridiculous, pathetic and sad.
The best part of this clip is seeing Obama with his sleeves rolled up punching Republicans right in the nuts. The second best part of the clip is watching Greg Gutfeld and Andrea “Show the Leg” Tantaros try to pretend he didn’t land it.
Obama’s speech in Austin, TX Thursday was more direct than he’s been about Congress in quite some time. Clearly it hit a nerve with the Fox frat crowd. In the opener, Gutfeld found about six new ways to troll the president in retaliation. It might play with the Fox fantasy viewers, but reality-based folks will have a more difficult time swallowing it.
The problem here isn’t the president. As he pointed out, he’s being sued for doing what he can to mitigate the fact that Congress refuses to govern.
In the span of three minutes, these two called President Obama arrogant, condescending, aloof, disconnected, a party boy, defiant, out of touch, and unable to grasp reality.
Tantaros cited three examples of why she’s so offended at the President’s demeanor: The Middle East, the border, and the VA.
The first one is in the hands of the leaders of the countries in conflict. The last two are the sole responsibility of a Congress that has chosen to sit on its hands, and worse yet, waste time with a frivolous lawsuit against President Obama for their failure to govern.
Troll away, kids. We all know you really want to call President Obama uppity, but can’t on national television. Nor can you admit what failures you’ve been at governance, choosing instead to name-call and deflect.
Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate)

Justice not done once again.
The answer is legislation to correct the over-reaching aspect of this ruling (remember that segment on “checks and balances” back in school? This is where that was about).
Congress can - and indeed, should - pass legislation to counteract the effects of a ruling of the Supreme Court. Of course, that would require Congress to do something, and we all know how that goes.(via davidkendall)
