Today is President Obama's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mr. President, and best wishes for 2012.
Here's a good birthday present for him:
Missouri Voters Reject Obamacare in Landslide Vote
"The citizens of the Show-Me State don't want Washington involved in their health care decisions," one of Proposition C's sponsors said.
If fully funded, the federal healthcare lawâa.k.a. Obamacareâwill create a massive, self-perpetuating bureaucracy that could be more bewildering and inefficient (see the chart above) than your private insurance company on its worse day. Perhaps for this reason, over 70 percent of Missouri voters cast their ballots yesterday in favor of Proposition C, a measure that would prevent the federal government from requiring individuals to buy health insurance or fine them if they donât.
Tuesdayâs vote was seen as largely symbolic because federal law generally trumps state law. But it was also seen as a sign of growing voter disillusionment with federal policies and a show of strength by conservatives and the tea party movement.
If this vote is a precursor to the November elections, it will be anything but symbolic. Moreover, not every legal scholar agrees that Obamacare is constitutional either. Incidentally, as a practical matter, when was the last time more than 70 percent of people agreed on anything? Have you tried to get your friends or family to even agree on what toppings to put on your pizza order?
Three states have similar referenda on the ballot in November, Stltoday.com reports, addition to Congressional, state, and local elections.
In the meantime, a federal judge ruled yesterday that Virginiaâs lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare will go forward. Per AP : âUS District Judge Henry Hudsonâs ruling denied the Justice Departmentâs attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed, saying further hearings are needed to weigh the merits of the case.â
I thought Obama was universally loved. What is up with these states challenging him at every turn? This is unprecedented.

The states are reading wilburbear's posts.
Anyone who doesn't love Obama and all of his policies is a racist.
When is your Canadian Prime Ministers birthday?
Since you worship OUR president maybe you should give your PM this gift.
April 30. Why? Would you like a catalogue of gift ideas and a countdown of shopping days remaining?
Lucrum is not a fan of the world. He still holds on to the providential belief that if ain't in his got'damn county it don't exist.
Since I definitely do not love him, heck I don't even like him and especially don't like his policies! But then again I do not care what race he is...he is still a horse's ass. He is also violating his Oath of Office to "protect our Constitution".
On a side note to ALL the government employees that read these threads, especially the ones that report.
The next time you are talking with Mrs. Obama, please tell her that those things on the sides of his head are NOT handles!
