Read the Obamacare. It says if your income is below a certain level (a relatively high minimum), you are free. The rates go up just like income taxes, until most of the cost is put on the Good Ol' Evil Rich.
About half of the population will end up paying, the other half not at all. Why is this fair?
And as for health savings account, I'll be more specific. I have an investment portfolio that I set aside for emergencies. This concept is completely foreign to you as a leftist, because as soon as a bump in the road hits you stick your hand out for a freebie from the gubbermint. See, people used to RELY ON THEMSELVES and plan for things, like retirement and bad health. I can easily cover just about anything that hits me, and whatever arrives above that I have catastrophic insurance.
But unlike you, I'm not a parasite that expects others to provide for me. Does it bother you that you need me and my tax payments, but I don't need you whatsoever?
I pay taxes, too.

I just don't whine and cry about it like you little girl Republicans.

While Karzi complains loudly that the Boy Messiah is colluding with the Taliban to turn and run from Afghanistan as quickly as possible.
This does wonders for US Troop morale, our image before our allies and enemies alike and before our mirror.
I know how I would feel as an American soldier serving in that country right now - like we had Jane Fonda as Commander in Chief.
American troops in Afghanistan should refuse to sacrifice any more lives in this meaningless surrender to the Tol-E-Bon.

Bush is now your party's Jimmy Carter, tenfold.

You keep trying to prop up that icon, but like the Saddam statue in Baghdad, it inevitably comes down on your heads. You feverishly keep trying to get it back up, only to have it topple on you once more.

So amusing. Like ants building a nest in a flood zone.

So who's the next GOP midget who will run against us.

How about Herman Cain, the Pizza Mogul?

I say, the man who knows the right amount of pepperoni to put on my pizza will do well in a crisis.

another right wing site that necessarily will have to be left wing.

Sound and Fury

What to make of Rand Paul’s 12 hours and 52 minutes of fame? Was his filibuster on the floor of the Senate last Wednesday, as Charles Krauthammer said on Fox’s Special Report, though substantively misguided,“a stroke of political genius”? Was it, as Seth Lipsky suggested in a column in the New York Post,“wonderful,” signifying both that “our country is in a constitutional moment” and “the rise of a new generation of Republican constitutional conservatives”? Or was it, as William Shakespeare wrote ahead of the fact,“full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”?

Forced to choose among three of our favorite pundits, we incline toward Shakespeare. That’s not to say Krauthammer isn’t right to be struck by Paul’s political talent. The senator dramatically seized a moment to make a point. He made himself briefly a central figure on the national stage. He demonstrated a political entrepreneurship that’s mystifyingly lacking in many of his GOP colleagues on Capitol Hill.

On the other hand, Paul’s political genius strikes us as very much of the short-term variety. Will it ultimately serve him well to be the spokesman for the Code Pink faction of the Republican party? How much staying power is there in a political stance that requires waxing semihysterical about the imminent threat of Obama-ordered drone strikes against Americans sitting in cafés? And as for the other Republican senators who rushed to the floor to cheer Paul on, won’t they soon be entertaining second thoughts? Is patting Rand Paul on the back for his fearmongering a plausible path to the presidency for Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz? Is embracing kookiness a winning strategy for the Republican party? We doubt it.

I find a lot of "things" rather immature and rude.

Was there "something" revealed that you wanted to keep "concealed"?

Why all the drama? Why all the frothing at the mouth, spasmodic?

In answer to your question:

***The part that had your screen name with a Jamestown, NY ISP that made leo believe "WE" were the same poster.

As I stated to leo, pointed out, it could have been "another" using your screen name. But you didn't state that it was.

Or that it WASN'T you who wrote the posts.

Every post of yours on Friday, March 8th was out of Jamestown, NY. So, turns out leo was not lying. It had her "wondering". So I went through all of Friday, March 8th's post of yours, and leo was telling the truth. You got a problem with truth?

Kentucky is a long way to route a New York ISP, randomly or by coincidence.
So, that leaves deliberate, intentionally chosen.

When leo first posted the link FROM THIS thread, I didn't read it.
The second time, after reading it, I assured her WE were not one and the same poster.

Here are your posts from Friday, March 8th ~ All with Jamestown, NY Addresses. I didn't post that day, so it was brought to my attention by leo:

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/fort-lauderda...

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/fort-lauderda...

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/fort-lauderda...

I find your over-reaction "interesting".
As I did your put-on new yawk accent, your "NewYawksh!tty" comment and your "New Yawk is the armpit of the US" remark.
A deliberate, intentional rudeness.

It's not stalking a poster when another re-posts the words they have ( already ) written.

what is wrong with all of these right wing sites?

Forget John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Conservatives in the House and Senate have been hit with the stupid stick. All I can think is that George McClellan’s ghost is whispering in their ear.

The conservatives in Congress — forget Republican leaders for a minute — want to make their stand not on the continuing resolution to keep the government going, but on the debt ceiling.

Each time Congress has had a debt ceiling fight, it has ended badly for the GOP. Conservatives have been rhetorically slaughtered by even conservatives in the media each time they’ve tried to block a debt ceiling increase.

And guess what? They’ve failed every time.

They did get sequestration, but now are witnesses their own Republican leaders flail about and lose a PR battle over something Barack Obama himself proposed.

Conservatives in Congress are worse than Charlie Brown getting a football pulled away from them. They are more a trained circus seal who barks for a fish from Republican leaders and does a few tricks to wow the crowd.

Welfare is disgusting and only encourages the lazy to get something for nothing.

Oooh, look. My free farm subsidy check just came in.

Oooh, look.$125 billion in GOP free subsidies for big corporations.

Ooh, look.$4 billion in free subsidies for the oil companies.

Now get off welfare, you long-haired hippie parasites. How come you can't be more like me?

more right wing heresy...

Here’s a scary thought for the already demoralized Republican party: If consensus economic forecasts are correct — and of course that’s always a big if — the 2016 Democratic nominee will appear to have a strong case for a de facto third Obama term. A new forecast from IHS Global Insight is more or less typical: The firm sees GDP growth averaging roughly 3 percent a year from 2014 through 2016. Now, that would hardly be a Reaganesque or Clintonesque boom; it would fall well short of the sort of growth normally expected after a deep downturn. But such an acceleration would make the final years of the Obama presidency the strongest since the financial crisis

And it would be far from a jobless recovery. Unemployment in that presidential-election year would average 6.3 percent, according to IHS. A little back-of-the-envelope math suggests that unemployment could dip under 6 percent by Election Day 2016. Hitting that mark would mean the Democratic nominee, such as, say, Hillary Clinton, would able to claim that Obamanomics created a net 13 million new jobs since the labor market started to recover. Stay the course, America.

At least Republicans could argue the boomlet is unsustainable, a mirage built on trillion-dollar deficits, right? Well, they could try. But the Congressional Budget Office predicts the budget deficit in 2016 will be $476 billion, down a whopping two-thirds from where it was in 2009, and just 2.5 percent of GDP. Federal debt as a share of the economy will have more or less stabilized around 75 percent of GDP (if only temporarily, before the entitlements deluge). And despite Obamacare, total federal spending as a share of the economy will be down nearly 15 percent since the end of the Great Recession. The Obama legacy: More growth, more jobs, less debt, smaller government. And universal health care.
