Yeah! Government always does everything better!!!!!!!!
Facebook meme blames Great Society for large rise in African-American fatherlessness

There’s no federal data to back up the meme’s specific claim, but the most applicable statistics show an increase in black fatherlessness that is more limited, and the rise might have been even more modest still if the early-1960s data had been more reliable.

In addition, the focus on Johnson and the Great Society is likely a red herring, since broader, societal factors are believed to have played a major role in rising rates of single-parenthood -- not just among blacks, but also among whites.

The exaggerated statistics, combined with an ignorance of important context, leads us to rate the claim False.

Americans for Prosperity claims people are getting less at a higher cost under Obamacare

Americans for Prosperity said "millions are paying more and getting less" under Obamacare. We found their explanation of "less" rather dubious. Most people on the individual market are getting more benefits under the law. At worst, they’re paying more to get more, though in many cases they’re actually paying less.

We rate this claim False.

It's a personal choice; there should be bars and restaurants that allow smoking if they want to; the employees would likely be smoker friendly as well.
There are choices to go to smoke free restaurants and bars as well. There's a sign at the beach that it is a non smoking beach; I don't know how they enforce that? Smoker police?
I do think that smoking has decreased overall and people who smoke are social pariahs now but I don't think it will ever be eliminated altogether.
If your doctor asks if you smoke; how would he know if you said no? Just wondering.
Looks like Florida is considering medical marijuana; I am in favor of this, as I am with legalizing marijuana totally and taxing it. Colorado is making a lot of tax money on this industry; perhaps it can pay for healthcare for all Americans?
This is the enigma sonic faces.

I'm assuming sonic is also for legalizing marijuana. Now I know people can't smoke joints just anywhere either. But children in Colorado are going to the ER for eating foods that contain marijuana which is sold anywhere and automobile accidents are spiking because of stoned drivers.

So who does sonic think pays for these unintended consequences of legalized marijuana?

Sonic has a real problem with a company hiring a smoker because of the potential health risks and expenses. But unless sonic doesn't agree with legalizing marijuana, his double standard makes no sense.

At least you have your head on straight when it comes to tobacco and no double standard about marijuana..

There is less incentive to work extra hours given the smaller after-tax wage rate, meaning taxable wages decrease. While almost everyone has to work to some extent to pay the bills, the decision to work a second job and/or overtime hours is often one of choice. Do you really need the extra income enough to give up much of your leisure and relaxation time? At $100 per hour, you might say "No doubt"! At $50, probably yes. At $25, maybe. At $10, no way. Everyone has their threshold where the extra money just isn't worth it. By raising tax rates, the hourly rate of take-home pay drops, pushing some below their acceptable threshold. The threshold exists at all levels, from the factory worker that declines taking an additional shift, to the doctor who sees fewer patients. The bottom line is that their is less productivity and taxable income.

MRC Study: Network TV Gives Obamacare Less Than One Percent of Evening Air Time
By Rich Noyes | March 25, 2014 | 10:52
Unquestionably, ObamaCare is the central political issue of 2014. As the midterm election campaign moves forward, liberal politicians will have to justify their support for a program that has cost millions of individuals their insurance; will raise premiums for most small businesses; imposes hundreds of billions of dollars in new taxes; and will cost, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the equivalent of two million jobs over the next three years.
But so far this year, the three network evening newscasts have minimized, spun or ignored every negative development about ObamaCare, while at the same time touting staged pro-ObamaCare publicity stunts, such as the President’s appearance on a Web-based comedy show in March.
A new study from the Media Research Center finds that long before the saga of the missing Malaysian jet commandeered the airwaves, ABC, CBS and NBC had apparently decided that ObamaCare was not a worthy topic for their evening newscasts. MRC analysts reviewed each newscast (including weekends) from January 1 through March 24, 2014. The review found just 29 stories that mentioned ObamaCare; 12 of those were full reports, while the other 17 were short items (under 30 seconds in length) read by the news anchor, or passing references to the health care law in longer political stories.
During this time, the NBC Nightly News aired just a single full report on ObamaCare — a largely celebratory piece on January 1 about the start of what fill-in anchor Lester Holt called “a new era in health care in this country.” Including that piece, Nightly News has only offered five minutes and five seconds of coverage of the health care law so far this year. For context, the total time of all news stories on the NBC Nightly News during the same period (excluding teasers and promos) is more than 24 hours, meaning NBC has spent barely one-third of one percent of its available evening news airtime talking about the health care law.
The other broadcast evening networks have hardly been more thorough. ABC’s World News has devoted just 6 minutes, 58 seconds to ObamaCare so far this year, while the CBS Evening News gave viewers 19 minutes, 21 seconds of coverage. Combined, that adds up to 31 minutes, 20 seconds, or approximately 0.72% of the total time devoted to news on the three evening broadcasts.
Bad news, such as lackluster enrollment statistics or new delays in key elements of the law, were usually given just a few seconds of coverage, according to the MRC study. Not one of the evening newscasts bothered to cover polls — even their own — showing the law’s continued unpopularity. And only one report (on CBS) profiled someone victimized by ObamaCare’s new rules, something ABC and NBC viewers have yet to hear about in 2014.

And we wonder why those on the left who know nothing because of ABC, CBS and NBC are so frikkin' confused.

Are you really this ignorant? The government took over for the father allowing mothers to kick out the breadwinners and rely on the government for food, housing, etc... This attitude has now spread along all races. I can remember while growing up people would do anything or job to keep the stigma of welfare off their persona. Now it is praised and even glorified. The shame of being on welfare and food stamps is long gone. The downfall of this once great country is almost done. What a pity!!!! We once raced to the moon. Now it's a race to the welfare line!!!!
