If you're eating the hors d'oeuvres ...

Would you tolerate somebody coming into your house and trying to insult you? Lessons that can be learned from this.

This is part of Obama's comment after he had the heckler escorted out of the White House. 

How would you say it in a different way? 

As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers, but not when I'm up in the [White] House. My attitude is, if you're eating the hors d'oeuvres.

Over to you: 

When is protesting against politicians and government officials acceptable? 

Is the saying "there is a time and place for everything" applicable here?

No prayer, no chance

If someone said to you don't have a prayer, would you start praying? Why/Why not?
Look at the exchange from a text chat and find the sentence "he doesn't have a prayer". Choose the correct option. 
The person is optimistic/pessimistic about Diego Maradona's chances of becoming FIFA's new president.
Has someone ever doubted you could do something because you "didn't have a prayer"? Tell us what you did.
