Barack Obama, our next President

Answer this question. Why are guns so easily accessible & even cheaper in the ghettos of America, where the majority of felons are from? Nobody in the ghettos own cargo ships to import them, yet they somehow find themselves in the hands of gang bangers & children 12yrs old in the ghettos! Meanwhile, you butt holes buy your children guns like toys & they eventually blow their own brains out. The balance of karma at it's finest!
Because most of the criminal element in society lives in the black ghetto, you fool, and they have absolutely no regard for human life.

Obamacare has not yet taken effect, so the costs have not yet occurred.
The Obamacare Shock

""No doubt there will be problems, as there are with any large new government initiative, and in this case, we have the added complication that many Republican governors and legislators are doing all they can to sabotage reform. Yet important new evidence — especially from California, the law’s most important test case — suggests that the real Obamacare shock will be one of unexpected success.

Before I can explain what the news means, I need to make a crucial point: Obamacare is a deeply conservative reform, not in a political sense (although it was originally a Republican proposal) but in terms of leaving most people’s health care unaffected. Americans who receive health insurance from their employers, Medicare or Medicaid — which is to say, the vast majority of those who have any kind of health insurance at all — will see almost no changes when the law goes into effect.

There are, however, millions of Americans who don’t receive insurance either from their employers or from government programs. They can get insurance only by buying it on their own, and many of them are effectively shut out of that market. In some states, like California, insurers reject applicants with past medical problems. In others, like New York, insurers can’t reject applicants, and must offer similar coverage regardless of personal medical history (“community rating”); unfortunately, this leads to a situation in which premiums are very high because only those with current health problems sign up, while healthy people take the risk of going uninsured.

Obamacare closes this gap with a three-part approach. First, community rating everywhere — no more exclusion based on pre-existing conditions. Second, the “mandate”— you must buy insurance even if you’re currently healthy. Third, subsidies to make insurance affordable for those with lower incomes.

Massachusetts has had essentially this system since 2006; as a result, nearly all residents have health insurance, and the program remains very popular. So we know that Obamacare — or, as some of us call it, ObamaRomneyCare — can work.

Skeptics argued, however, that Massachusetts was special: it had relatively few uninsured residents even before the reform, and it already had community rating. What would happen elsewhere? In particular, what would happen in California, where more than a fifth of the nonelderly population is uninsured, and the individual insurance market is largely unregulated? Would there be “sticker shock” as the price of individual policies soared?

Well, the California bids are in — that is, insurers have submitted the prices at which they are willing to offer coverage on the state’s newly created Obamacare exchange. And the prices, it turns out, are surprisingly low. A handful of healthy people may find themselves paying more for coverage, but it looks as if Obamacare’s first year in California is going to be an overwhelmingly positive experience.""

Iran is overwhelmingly Shia, Iraq is majority Shia, Syria's so called ruling class are Shia. The rest of the Arab world__Muslim world actually is overwhelmingly Sunni factions.

Someone described Islam as a delicate Mosaic__in reality it's a fractured f'd up mess and confusing to follow along with. Bashar al-Assad of Syria is a Shiite of the Alawite variety which consumes alcohol. Who knew eh?

It wasn't the blow-job (that is what you were talking about, right?), it was his lying to America, Congress AND the Federal Grand Jury, that does matter. Obama learned from Clinton, he employs 'ignorance of the fact', rather than chance being proved a liar. Ignorance of the law does not excuse, but ignorance of the fact, does.
And, George W. Bush used executive privilege 6 times to stifle congressional investigations all together. A president would be hard pressed to lower themselves to GW's level when it comes to being "proved a liar".

As far as Clinton is concerned, Monica Slutensky was on record, in her deposition for the Paula Jones lawsuit, as saying she "never had sex with the president". Funny how Ken Starr concluded that Clinton's sworn testimony was "false and perjurious" even though it matched the testimony of the only other person involved present during the alleged "sexual relations". Face it, Ken Starr's proceeding against Clinton was just another witchhunt for which Republicans are now so famous for embracing with ardent fervor. Issa is just another Kenneth Starr. Republicans should be ashamed.

To the Slaughter
British lions come up lambs in Woolwich.
By Mark Steyn

…Not a lot of Muslims want to go to the trouble of chopping your head off, but when so many Western leaders have so little rattling around up there, they don’t have to. And, as we know from the sob-sister Tsarnaev profiles, most of these excitable lads are perfectly affable, or at least no more than mildly alienated, until the day they set a hundred cars alight, or blow up a school boy, or decapitate some guy. And, if you’re lucky, it’s not you they behead, or your kid they kill, or even your Honda Civic they light up.

And so life goes on, and it’s all so “mundane,” in Simon Jenkins’s word, that you barely notice when the Jewish school shuts up, and the gay bar, and the uncovered women no longer take a stroll too late in the day, and the publishing house that gets sent the manuscript for the next Satanic Verses decides it’s not worth the trouble....

But don’t worry, they’ll never defeat our “free speech” and our “way of life.”

This passivity set the tone for what followed. In London as in Boston, THE POLITICO-MEDIA CLASS IMMEDIATELY LAPSED INTO THE PNEUMATIC MULTICULTI TOURETTE’S THAT SEEMS TO BE A CHRONIC SIDE EFFECT OF EXCESS DIVERSITY-CELEBRATING: No Islam to see here, nothing to do with Islam, all these body parts in the street are a deplorable misinterpretation of Islam.

The BBC’s Nick Robinson accidentally described the men as being “of Muslim appearance,” but quickly walked it back lest impressionable types get the idea that there’s anything “of Muslim appearance” about a guy waving a machete and saying “Allahu akbar.”

A man is on TV dripping blood in front of a dead British soldier and swearing “by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” yet it’s the BBC reporter who’s apologizing for “causing offence.”

To David Cameron, Drummer Rigby’s horrific end was “not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam.... There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”

That’s why it fits so harmoniously into famously peaceful societies like, say, Sweden. For the last week Stockholm has been ablaze every night with hundreds of burning cars set alight by “youths.” Any particular kind of “youth”? The Swedish prime minister declined to identify them any more precisely than as “hooligans.”

But don’t worry: The “hooligans” and “youths” and men of no Muslim appearance whatsoever can never win because, as David Cameron ringingly declared,“they can never beat the values we hold dear, the belief in freedom, in democracy, in free speech, in our British values, Western values.”

Actually, they’ve already gone quite a way toward eroding free speech, as both prime ministers demonstrate.

The short version of what happened in Woolwich is that two Muslims butchered a British soldier in the name of Islam and helpfully explained,“The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day.” But what do they know?

They’re only Muslims, not Diversity Outreach Coordinators. So the BBC, in its so-called “Key Points,” declined to mention the “Allahu akbar” bit or the “I”-word at all: Allah who?

One in ten Britons under 25 is now Muslim. That number will increase, through immigration, disparate birth rates, and conversions like those of the Woolwich killers, British-born and -bred. Metternich liked to say the Balkans began in the Landstrasse, in southeast Vienna.

Today, the Dar al-Islam begins in Wellington Street, in southeast London. That’s a “betrayal” all right, but not of Islam.

I agree, I prefer a slow and steady growth, we do not need to repeat of the Bush years. My comment about buying now was more towards renters and people looking to buy as you suggest and people renting condos such as Carol.

It is 'have' a brain, and the 'have nots a brain'(democrats)...with the open border of Mexico-drugs and guns come in. No one wants Mexicans running drugs and weapons except O'bama and Holder. I am waiting for one of those guns that O'bama released into Mexico to be found on a city street in the United States-don't doubt me-it will happen.

P.S. I find using the word 'butt holes' to be very uncouth--do you know what they means 'have not'(a brain)?

The Christian community in Iraq is one of the oldest in the region, dating back about 2,000 years, well before the introduction of Islam.
Since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, however, much the community has fled the country, diminishing its population within Iraq's borders by about half.
Under Saddam Hussein, Iraq was ruled by the Baath party, a secular government. Hussein himself was a Sunni Muslim; Sunni Muslims comprise about 35 percent of Iraqis.
Since Hussein's government was a minority government. Other minorities, including Christians, "felt much more protected under the Hussein regime than they do currently," says Brian Katulis of the Center for American Progress.
