Gore Vidal was always wrong about everything.
So is Al "Jazeera" Gore.

In 2005, Spring started in April here in the northeast and it remained temperate through Thanksgiving. Now it does not get warm until May and gets cold by the end of October. That's pretty dramatic.

Liberals/Socialists (AKA: Democrats) are idiots.

You want to make the game relevant again. Move the three point line the same two feet. Widen the court two feet on each side. Raise the basket two feet. Stop the traveling, palming, and contact. Why is everything about race with you loony libtards? No wonder this country is so screwed up. I just happen to think a once great sport has been relegated to a back yard pick me up game. Nothing racist about it.

<quoted text>According to democrats: Castro was practicing liberal progressive democrat policies. He was 'taking care' of these women.
In today's culture of violence, the identity of a perpetrator is a political issue, especially when a crime is committed by a deranged liberal.

According to the Daily News, "What the neighbors saw was terrifying and dehumanizing: Naked women on dog leashes, crawling in the dirt in Ariel Castros backyard a deranged liberal. A lady clutching an infant and pounding on a window for help."

Obama and Democrats are the enemy from within.
"Russia does not have to destroy America with missles; America will destroy from within."
~Nikita Kruchev, a communist.

Maybe that's what Obama meant about being "more flexible" after the election when he was in Russia.

He sort of announced it in his Inaugural Speech.

Nothing surprises me anymore.

<quoted text> All of those 5 terrorists' attacks also led to convictions and long prison terms or death for the perps. How many of the terrorist masterminds of 9/11 where 3,000 innocent Americans died were pursued, convicted , and imprisoned or killed by George W Bush ? ZERO.
The Fort Hood shooter is stilling thumbing his nose at the US judicial system, years after his terrorist attack.

The 9/11 terrorists all died in the attack, but hundreds of terrorists were imprisoned at Gitmo.

That's not the point, the point is that many people couldn't either afford or obtain insurance. This is supposed to solve that problem. That 80% of premiums must go to patient care should cover it.
I agree it's a flawed program. Only hope that eventually we will join the rest of the civilized world and have universal single payer healthcare for all.
Republicans hate the poor, look at the last election.

Wonder if Gosnell is one of those crazy rightwing conservative fanatics the liberals just love to hate so much?
When a real act of war on women is perpetrated by a Democrat voter Ariel Castro, in the manner that even the most zealous Democrat strategist couldn't have dreamed up in their worst nightmares -- involving abduction, imprisonment, rape, torture, malnutrition, beatings while pregnant, and killing babies -- then only do democrats think the party affiliation is not relevant.

<quoted text>Republicans offered the answer. They insisted that the 'individual mandate' be put in Obamacare because it was the only way that Big Insurers argued that they could keep people with preexisting conditions on insurance rolls without going bankrupt.
Still can't force people to buy insurance.

Much cheaper to pay the tax.

Plus, everyone will need to pay much higher premiums to finance coverage of pre-existing conditions for a relative few.

It's a fact the weak are more susceptible to believing lies.

Does that mean we are now a weak country? And are liberals actually defending a nation of weakness?

Help me out here. I've been totally stumped trying to figure out the liberal mentality. Am I getting closer?

The amount of rebate in 2012 because of the medical loss ratio was negligible.

This well is dry.

I do not have a problem with thoughtful, intelligent, real conservatives, although they are harder to find than the spotted owl.

You say kissed the American people say 'worked together' for the good of everyone.
