There is NO distinction between the First Amendment and the Second. One enforces, and reinforces the other. Either direction.

Barry, Barry he's our man, if he can't do it .....
Newsweek's one dollar story:
The presidency has grown, and grown and grown, into the most powerful, most impossible job in the world.
In 1936 Franklin Roosevelt felt overwhelmed. The New Deal had begun to spawn dozens of new agencies, and Roosevelt, fearful of the fragmentation of the executive branch, asked for help. The Brownlow Committee, an independent panel tasked with finding a new model of White House management, proposed offering the president some personal staff. "They would remain in the background, issue no orders, make no decisions, emit no public statements," the committee explained in a report responding to public skepticism about growing the size of government. Over the next two years, Roosevelt recruited six trusted aides.
Nowadays, six aides is roughly the number Barack Obama has to handle incoming mail--a small fraction of the 469 employees who work in the White House Office and councils for domestic and economic policy, the core staff of the presidency. Other officials include an ethics adviser, a special assistant for "mobility and opportunity policy," a director of African-American media, and a special assistant for financial markets, to name just a few. Days in the West Wing are a constant, head-spinning oscillation between dozens of domestic, foreign-policy, and political eruptions and concerns.
What a bunch of silly women! (Apologies to REAL women)
FDR...OVERWHELMED? Maybe we should ask Yamamoto if he thinks FDR was overwhelmed. Or Nagumo. Or Hitler.
But poor Barry because if the ONE cannot do the job he campaigned two years to get, then no one can, eh?
If progressive ideas are lost on Americans they must be too stupid, too fearful or the explanation lacking.
But Barry is still SPECIAL, as are all the children, and Barry deserves an award for being Barry. Oh, he already has a Nobel for being Barry. Sorry.
Look Newsweek, forget your vagina and GROW UP.
There is no alternative but to DO THE JOB. If he can't do I gurantee you -
Maybe even some hick basketball player from Alaska.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
"The problem is if they think they )the citizens) are not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does, the central government defines what is right and wrong and whether or not they target you. So, it’s not up to the individuals. Even if they think they aren't doing something wrong, if their position on something is against what the administration has, then they could easily become a target."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
