From a horrible tragedy; various governments, retailers, and individual citizens came to terms with the offensive symbolism of the Confederate Flag. Southern heritage and pride should never have been so attached to a battle flag of failed secession. As many proudly brandished the flag, many others were reminded of a despicable era of human bondage. The south and southern tradition deserves a better representation of its pride and contribution to the country.
Obamacare as a law may not be perfect, but it is far better than the previous healthcare system practices. After some 60 failed attempts by GOP legislators to repeal the law, the Supreme Court for the second time upheld it. It is time for Republicans to abandon their pointless, taxpayer money-wasting campaign against the law and focus on jobs and the economy! They never had an alternative plan - This is definitely a case of "if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem!
Although many people may have beliefs that prevent them from supporting same-sex marriage, our Constitution guarantees the basic pursuit of happiness to all citizens. Religious freedom, separation of church and state is the foundation of our government and this law has no effect on those who disagree as their lives and marriages remain untouched by marriage equality.
It's ironic how there was no "outrage" when religious freedom worked in their favor with laws guaranteeing refusal of service based on religious beliefs - but once the law was not in their favor, the tantrums were thrown.
Can we stop the attacks on all things Obama and get down to governing now? Let's begin with campaign finance reform, and job creation through infrastructure repair!
