WELL, AFTER ALL THEIR EFFORTS TO CONTROL THE CONVERSATION, PERHAPS IT'S DAWNING ON THEM THAT THE REAL PROFIT LIES ELSEWHERE? ALTERNATELY, MAYBE THEY'RE CUTTING THEIR LOSSES AND CONCENTRATING ON JUST THOSE THREADS THAT DIRECTLY THREATEN THE LIFE OF THE PRESIDENT AND HIS BLACK FAMILY? HOW WILL WE KNOW?

Congratulations on not being in favor of it; now, gfy.
Dylan Quick was deaf requiring dual hearing aids, naturally he was teased thus the home schooling. He was also batsht crazy, dreaming about stabbing, slicing, necrophilia and such supposedly from an early age. Some who knew him at the college said he seemed like a nice kid but was strange, sometimes carrying stuffed animals.

He was a big guy who used both a scalpel and an exacto-knife on his victims.

He would have easily passed a background check at a gun store or show but apparently had know interest in shooting. With two hearing aids that makes sense.

It seems a little ironic that John Kerry is the one telling North Korea they are making a big mistake crossing the US when they know he was the one accusing American soldiers of being no better than terrorists or Genghis Khan in Vietnam.

They're probably thinking John Kerry is more on board with them.

Grief by Philip Larkin
If grief could burn out
Like a sunken coal
The heart would rest quiet
The unrent soul
Be as still as a veil
But I have watched all night
The fire grow silent
The grey ash soft
And I stir the stubborn flint
The flames have left
And the bereft
Heart lies impotent
I HAVETO SLEEP A LITTLE, I'M FASCINATED BY YOU ASALWAYS... OK, MOM'S AWAKE, I GUESS I AM TOO. HOLY CHRIST, IF I COULD JUST GET THE WOMAN ON SOME SORT OF SCHEDULE! I'LL DEAL WITH YOUR LITTLE BLACK FELLOW IN JUST A LITTLE WHILE, BUT YOU KNOW HOW MEN ARE...

This might put it into better perspective for RealDave.
Obamacare's main provisions are only a few months from full implementation and already moving through the economy like a "statutory disruptor beam".
Small businesses are trying to keep payrolls below 50 workers to remain exempt. Larger firms are trying to figure out how to convert more staff to part-time.
The WSJ reports many unions have soured on Obamacare complaining it will jack up their health plan costs.
The unknown is how many employees will lose company-sponsored insurance and, if there's an exodus from employer health plans and more workers end up on Obamacare exchanges, the program's cost will explode. The dumped workers and those now without policies may opt to pay the lower penalty than go on the exchanges.
If the young and healthy stay away, those left in the exchanges will be older and sicker pushing premiums higher and driving more people out.
The Society of Actuaries recently predicted that medical claim costs in the individual markets will shoot up an average of 32 percent.
If medical costs rise too quickly, the Independent Payments Advisory Board will begin cutting payments to Medicare providers reducing seniors' access to care. Also, officials will start cutting subsidies in the exchanges if their cost exceeds 0.5 percent of GDP.
If the number of people in the exchanges fall, the CBO said it will leave behind people with lower incomes or costlier health problems, or both — once again driving up premium prices and pushing more people out.
According to The NYT, even the White House is now telling officials it's unwise to tell consumers they could get health insurance that fits their budget.
Obamacare - a force-fed monstrosity - a train wreck beginning to unfold.
Watching the political fallout before the November 2014 elections will, however, be interesting.

The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.

"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

It's much more astonishing to me that the left is so astonished Obamacare is a disaster.

It will be this president's legacy.

The disaster that's coming is already causing a lot of nightmares for democrats. It will go down in history as their and Obama's legacy.

Passing a 2700 page monstrosity without one republican on board, with the majority of Americans being against it, and the democrats not even knowing what's in it? Seriously?

This is what liberals are defending to their last breath?
