I don't care what the sexuality is. I will discriminate against anyone who shoves their sexuality in my face.
Get used to that fact.

If you noticed, I made this statement without identifying any particular sexual orientation, something you are incapable of doing.
You cannot exist without a bias. That's the biggest problem with the mentality of Democrats.
There are gays among Conservatives, Atheist, women, minorities, blacks, etc.

We embrace everyone because we are they ONLY tolerant people on Earth! We are too nice actually!

Democrats hate, Conservatives love!

Why we have so many different people in the Republican party?

Because we ALLOW you to think and teach your own conclusions! We respect individuals rights! We love freedom!

To join the Democrat party you have to accept all their socio-communis-Islamic beliefs else they will destroy you!

To join the Republican party all you need us only three things: Love freedom, want a small government and embrace personal responsibility!

That's all!

Democrats are hateful monsters that hate Christians but love Muslims!

Why?

Because Muslims believe in controlling people against their will.

Funny that "rightwing hackers" hasn't been what Sebelius or anyone else close to this fiasco has blamed.

Some tried to go that route a few times early on but no one was buying it. They only lie when enough people buy it...such as yourself. So if the shoe fits, wear it.

Good morning. Yeah. I skipped over 1,200 posts. I can't imagine that I missed anything. Rethugs still seem to be stuck on stupid.

But, but, but..."Bush isn't president anymore". Don't you get sick of hearing that excuse? Rush Limpball said the promise that "you can keep your plan" is "the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president." Worse than lying about WMD's?? Worse than Reagan's Iran-Contra affair? Nixon's Watergate scandal? What an idiot.

I do believe that Obama mislead the public about the ACA but it certainly doesn't rise to the level of the lies told by Republican presidents. Besides, if your policy was grandfathered and you liked it...you could keep it. It was a half-truth. He certainly could have added "unless your insurer makes changes to your plan."

Certainly the Department of Health and Human Services ALWAYS said that policy holders would have to "transition" to "ACA-compliant" plans. That was disclosed from the very beginning. There was no subterfuge about the fact of change. IMO, it won't be an issue come election time IF the webpage is fixed and millions of people are able to benefit from the ACA. Change is always difficult.

"There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction" --Winston Churchill The ACA is headed in the right direction.

Virginia’s Election Was a GOP Rout—and Here Are Its Lessons

If you’re looking for lessons from last Tuesday’s Virginia election results, don’t just look to Ken Cuccinelli’s gubernatorial defeat—for which any one or combination of a dozen factors can be blamed—look as well at how the Republican candidates performed in the other two statewide races. E.W. Jackson, a fiery cultural rightist who makes Ken Cuccinelli sound like Wendy Davis, lost by 10.5 points in the lieutenant governor’s race. Mark Obenshain, who is about on par with Cuccinelli and Bob McDonnell on social issues, is up by a hair and probably heading for a recount in a 50-50 draw to become the next attorney general. What can we learn?

First, style matters. Three Republicans with roughly similar views on social policy performed very differently: the most flamboyant, Jackson, was crushed; the quietest, Obenshain, did best; and Cuccinelli, in the middle, fell short against Terry McAuliffe.

Cuccinelli’s supporters complain that he was defamed by McAuliffe’s “war on women” advertising, and Tim Carney, among others, has argued that Cuccinelli was in fact active behind the scenes in opposing the Republican legislature’s transvaginal ultrasound mandate for women seeking abortions. The trouble is that whatever the nuances of Cuccinelli’s antiabortion views, the image he’d cultivated as Christian conservatism’s champion—the very thing that earned him such ardent loyalty on the right—contributed to impressions that what McAuliffe said about his views must be true. Cuccinelli tried to send one signal to his base (I’m with you 100 percent—whatever that might mean) and another to the general voter (I’m not an extremist). That set up an uncertainty that McAuliffe could exploit, and did.

E.W. Jackson avoided any uncertainty: he was proud to be an extremist. Jackson was on the ticket because Cuccinelli’s supporters changed the nominating procedure from a primary to a convention to guarantee that their man would rout a moderate rival like Bill Bolling, who chose not to run at all. This was overkill—Cuccinelli almost certainly would have won a primary—and it wound up costing the GOP the lieutenant governor’s race, if not contributing to Cuccinelli’s own defeat. Not only did Cuccinelli not benefit from association with Jackson, but the idea that right-wing activists had taken over the Virginia GOP only reinforced a message that Cuccinelli didn’t want to be sending: if his supporters were radicals of a sort that would nominate Jackson, what did that make Cuccinelli?

Style isn’t just a question of how a candidate speaks. It’s a question of how his supporters present themselves as well. Even if Cuccinelli didn’t support the transvaginal ultrasound legislation, he was seen to be the leader of the kind of people who were responsible for it.

Both in Virginia and nationally, ideological activists have had the upper hand in the GOP lately, and they’ve overplayed it. The lesson here isn’t that they represent ideas that can’t win—Chris Christie shows that antiabortion Republicans can even win in New Jersey—but that they would win more often if they check their own impulses to let their freak flags fly and hunt the RINOs to extinction.
Funny, when there is a Republican landslide win Democrats are quite about it, Reagan, 2010 midterms, etc. No mention of "the End of Liberalism", "The End of the Democrat party".

But when a few Democrats marginally win over a Republican then "it is the death of the Republican party"!

See? Democrats are brain dead hypocrites.

Fox Goes To Bat For 60 Minutes Benghazi "Witness" Who Admitted He Lied

Fox News attempted to rehabilitate the reputation of an alleged Benghazi "witness" who appeared in a discredited CBS report about the 2012 attack, after the same "witness" admitted he falsified statements about where he was that night.

On October 27, CBS' 60 Minutes featured testimony from "Morgan Jones," a supposed "witness" of the September 2012 attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities who claimed that during the attack he scaled a wall of the compound and personally struck a terrorist in the face with his rifle. This story wildly diverged from the account he gave his superiors in an incident report that was obtained by The Washington Post, which stated he "could not get anywhere near" the compound the night of the attack. The Post also identified Jones' real name as Dylan Davies.

On the November 4 edition of Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade dismissed the inconsistencies in Davies' accounts, instead suggesting that the State Department or the White House had leaked the report to the Post to "discredit a seemingly very credible witness about those attacks, who witnessed those attacks." During the segment, guest Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) baselessly called Davies a "covert agent" -- though he worked for private security contractor Blue Mountain, not the CIA -- and Chaffetz and Kilmeade both attacked the Post for publishing Davies' name, suggesting the article had endangered his life by revealing his identity.

But Davies' account is not just inconsistent - he also admitted to The Daily Beast on November 2 that he had lied about his actions during the night of the Benghazi attack to his supervisors. He explained his differing accounts of the night of the attack by claiming that he did not personally write the Blue Mountain incident report and admitting he had lied in his account to the company because "he did not want his supervisor to know he had disobeyed his orders":

Davies said the version of the events contained in the incident report matched what he told his supervisor, called "Robert" in his book, who is a top Blue Mountain Group executive. Davies said he lied to Robert about his actions that night because he did not want his supervisor to know he had disobeyed his orders to stay at his villa.

The Daily Beast has redacted the true name of Robert out of his concern for his privacy.

"He told me under no circumstances was I to go up there. I respected him so much I did not want him to know that I had not listened to him," said Davies, referring to Robert. "I have not seen him since."

Davies also wrote in his book that Robert had instructed him not to go to the compound under any circumstances. Davies called Robert after going to the hospital, he said, but before his first visit to the compound on the night of Sept. 11. Davies says he told Robert the ambassador was dead but did not tell him what he was up to.

[...]

Executives at Blue Mountain Group, including Robert, did not respond to emails requesting comment.

Kilmeade also used the segment to rehash a number of debunked Benghazi myths, such as the false claims that the administration delayed labeling the Benghazi attack an act of terror and that a "stand down" order was given the night of the attack, continuing the network's desperate attempt to find a Benghazi "scandal" more than a year after the attack.

What some Medical Doctor says...

"As an off-topic aside, let me tell you the problems with many government-paid Medicaid patients and charity patients: they miss appointments, they are not appreciative and treat you like a servant, they will not make morning appointments, they resist advice, they do not pay the rent so docs have to limit their numbers - and they are prone to lawsuits against you. I know about this, because I do around 10-15% charity work in my office as my form of tithing, volunteer one day/week in a charity clinic, and teach for free 1/2 day/week. Just another greedy doc."

The best Republicans can hope for in their current state is a slight majority in the House, they've pretty much lost the Senate and can forget about the presidency for the next few cycles.
