    Obama has kicked a lot of ass:

    http://www.vox.com/2015/6/26/8849925/obama-obamacare-history-presidents

    For a guy “with no experience,” Obama has accumulated a notable record:

    stimulus bill
    Dodd-Frank Act
    executive action to curb greenhouse gas emissions
    executive action to protect 6 million undocumented immigrants from deportation.
    Ended ban on gays and lesbians serving in the military.
    Made it easier for women and minorities to fight wage discrimination
    Cut out private sector involvement in student loans
    hiked top income tax rate
    reopened relations with Cuba
    Iran Nuclear deal (tentative)
    reprofessionalized the Department of Justice
    refashioned National Labor Relations Board
    refashioned the Wage & Hour Division of Labor Department
    Marriage Equality for all


    @Broadway
    , again I encourage you to just be a better human about it all. Set aside the fear and shame based arguments and spend more time on your life, helping the poor, doing actually good things.

    Continuing on this road does more to marginalize who you are and what you claim to be about than you realize.

    Your world has ended Broadway, for God’s sake, jump!

    Nope, not gonna jump…gonna stand…
    For this reason, take up the whole armor of God so that you may be able to take a stand whenever evil comes. And when you have done everything you could, you will be able to stand firm. Ephesians 6:13

    Pretty contextual…

    Broadway, you keep digging your hole deeper.

    On the surface, the GOP seems to also be digging their own hole deeper. However, only if the majority who agree with this decision actually vote in 2016. This is not an “automatic”. Younger voters need to actually vote in 2016 if they agree with this, otherwise it could be overturned as justices retire.

    Has the SCOTUS/Congress really ever overturned a social justice law. I don’t think so.

    Younger people tend not to vote, yet we’ve continuingly been making equality progress for everyone. Should young people one day turn up en mass at the polls, the Republicans would suffer a massive defeat just about everywhere, including the south.

    Broadway sez: “armor of God so that you may be able to take a stand whenever evil comes. And when you have done everything you could, you will be able to stand firm.”

    Skep, maybe I wasn’t clear. There is tremendous passion on both sides of this issue. Perhaps as much as Row vs. Wade.
    This emotion could easily overturn this, especially since the vote was close and there is a political split all over it. I think Kennedy was absolutely correct in keeping politics out of it, but how can we be sure this will occur in the future?

    With some religious groups, this is not acceptable, in that they must either recognize what they see as divine and or perfect as needing change, ignore it, or seek to assert their moral authority.

    Lots of carefully contrived court cases are coming, just as they have come as a result of Roe.

    Some of that will be warranted. Like anything, some boundaries need refinement and balance. All good. I see this like later abortion, which we have all but eliminated, and mid term where there are reasonable conditions.

    Sadly, there are a lot of cases that go too far, and that is where the struggle will continue to be for a good long time.

    Same sex marriage will see the same dynamics, IMHO.

    …as will guns someday.

    SCOTUS affirmed the individual right finally.

    They left regulation of that right as an open and constitutional matter.

    One day, when political will is there, similar attempts to set boundaries and reach balance will happen.
