    Now to the do nothing Congress which has earned the title of lowest approval ever (my how proud the Right must be of them)

    Following is a list of bills, appointments, etc. that this gang of obstructionists has stalled or stopped in their tracks:
    • GOP blocks vote on Richard Cordray to head consumer bureau (later appointed)
    • Republicans Block Congressional Health Care Disclosure
    • GOP leadership blocks congressional insider-trading ban
    • Senate GOP blocks Democrat disaster aid
    • GOP attempts to block EPA’s climate change rules
    • Republicans block Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas
    • GOP blocks Political Ad disclosure bill
    • Republicans block The Small Business Jobs Act (later passed)
    • GOP blocks The DREAM Act
    • Republicans block repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (later passed)

    Chico? I don't think that's the equivalent ... the closest we have to Uncle Tom is Tio Tomas or Tio Taco ... sometimes you get called "vendido" (sell-out) ... some people get called coconuts (brown on the outside, white on the inside -- kinda like oreo) ... btw, Chico sometimes is used the way you might use "guy" or "fella" ... But go ahead and call me what you want, just don't call me late for dinner ...

    On his own property, he should be able to refuse servicr to anyone, thr same way a business owner can declare his business a gun free zone.

    What does DADT have to do with job creation?

    Do you MLK and civil rights activists overdid it? Asked for too much? If a factory opened up in your town and they employed only whites, no blacks need apply, would that be O.K.?

    Trained personnel need not be ejected for stupid reasons, driving up the costs by requiring some new person be trained, instead of adding a new trained person.

    But then, I was not addressing jobs exclusively. You asked what was blocked, contending further that Obama has gotten everything he's asked for. Thus is was kid's play to hand you your ass.
