    1. Directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act;
    2. Gave states waivers from federal mandates if they agreed to education overhauls;
    3. Changed significant provisions of and the timing of Obamacare;
    4. Declared an anti-gay-rights law unconstitutional;
    5. Reshaped immigration policy by ordering the federal government to halt deportation of certain illegal immigrants.

    ARE PRESIDENT OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE ORDERS CONSTITUTIONAL? - MequonNOW
    All these words for a such a simple question. It just shows that you think you can cloud the issue. The truth is that Ronald Reagan granted amnesty, and if Obama is a dictator for doing the same thing then either they are both dictators or you are not telling the truth.

    Stalin had ideas and a lot of them would be illegal under American law. Hitler had ideas, too, the ku klux ckowns, black panthers, weathermen...see the point?

    Not quite the bang for the buck we were looking for huh?
    How do you like those Hispanics calling Obama the Deporter-in-Chief on one hand and the GOP House refusing to vote on the other .
    Greetings, NIMBY.

    The Congress had stated to BHO months ago that they would not tackle the immigration problem until later this year. BHO knew this - it did not come as a surprise. In view of the fact that illegals have been a problem for years, why the push for immediate action now? Cantor's loss at the polls should have caught BHO's attention - the public voted loud and clear what they thought about amnesty - Cantor was somewhat on BHO's side, and he paid for it by losing his job!

    Now we're reading about Border Agents contracting diseases and other illnesses from some of the 90,000 teenagers and younger children who recently arrived, which alarms people all across this Country. What do you suggest we do, NIMBY? The very poor from other countries have not had the vaccinations and other health regimens we have available, yet we need to assimilate them into our society, no questions asked? Not gonna happen, IMO. Things like dengue fever and other illnesses are too serious to allow that, and we're not equipped to handle illnesses we eradicated long ago. What a mess!

    If someone had the idea to assassinate the president and expressed that idea, that would be illegal. Yes?

    The bill Reagan signed that was passed by Congress made any illegal who entered the country prior to 1982 eligible for amnesty. He then granted it. What's the problem? Congress passed the bill.

    Wait so now its actions. The idea is not illegal. However acting on a treasonous and/or murderous ideal is illegal. Having ideas is in fact not illegal, its acting on some ideas that are.

    Simply talking about the idea of assassinating the president could land one in jail. Promoting the genocide of Jews, Ukranians, Montogards and Hmong like you brother socialist might land you in jail, as well.

    Bees could learn some lessons about swarming just by watching what happens when the POTUS is threatened, couldn't they?
