WASHINGTON, June 14 (Reuters)- The White House said on Friday it would be dramatically more difficult and costly to set up a no-fly zone over Syria than it was in Libya, stressing that the United States does not have a national interest in pursuing that option.

"We feel like the best course of action is to try to strengthen a moderate opposition," Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes told a news briefing.

He said the United States did not want to send U.S. troops - or "boots on the ground" - to Syria and said enforcing a no-fly zone over the country could require intense, open-ended U.S. military engagement.

"Osborn said Hasan's "defense of others" strategy “failed as a matter of law,” according to a Ft. Hood statement, since no soldiers at the Central Texas base posed an immediate threat to anyone in Afghanistan.
“She ruled that as a uniformed soldier in the U.S. Army, Hasan had no justification to kill other U.S. soldiers,” the statement said, and ”that she will not allow Hasan to present any evidence or argument relating to the defense of others.”

Hassan was a follower of Anwar Aw-awlaki; you know; the poor U.S. citizen killed by the drone that you keep whining about.

<quoted text>Reagan outspent them.
Democrats controlled the House during both of Reagan's terms and a Democrats controlled Congress during the last two years.

Reagan in 1986: "Unfortunately, Congress consistently brings the government to the edge of default before facing its responsibility."

Reagan's Economic Recovery Act in 1981: There followed sixty straight months of economic growth, the longest uninterrupted period of expansion since the government began keeping such statistics in 1854. Nearly fifteen million new jobs were created -- a total of eighteen million by the time Reagan left office. Just under $20 trillion worth of goods and services measured in actual dollars, were produced from 1982 to 1987. To give some notion of how much that is, by the end of 1987 America was producing about seven and a one-half times more every year than it produced in John Kennedy's last year as president.

The economic report cards of American presidents from Truman through Reagan, Reagan easily finishes first. Using the change each year in inflation, unemployment, interest rates and growth in Gross National Product, Harvard economist Robert Barro ranked Reagan number one.

Among other things, Reagan engineered the largest reduction in the misery index in history -- 50 percent. In fact, sums up economist Richard B. McKenzie, the 1980s were, up to then, "the most prosperous decade in American history."

The Cold War and a Congress who reneged on promises to cut spending helped to increase the deficit during the Reagan years.

But considering everything - pros versus cons during the Reagan years - you shouldn't complain.

The majority of America has been saying "no" to the Affordable Health Care Act since 2010 even before the Democrats shoved it down our throats and before Obama signed it.

The majority are still saying "no".

But it's not about us, you see. It's about Democrats, Democrats with power and Democrats in a one-party system. That was the goal of Obama's second term...silencing the opposition. It backfired.

Doctors dump health insurance plans, charge patients less

UPI 6/15/2013 3:56:04 AM

WICHITA, Kan., June 14 (UPI)--

A Kansas physician says he makes the same income and offers better quality care to his patients after he dumped all health insurance companies.

Thirty-two-year old family physician Doug Nunamaker of Wichita, Kan., said after five years of dealing with the red tape of health insurance companies and the high overhead for the staff he hired just to deal with paperwork, he switched to a system of charging his patients a monthly fee plus the price of an office visit or test, CNN/Money reported.

For example, under Nunamaker's membership plan -- also known as "concierge" medicine or "direct primary care" practices -- each patient pays a flat monthly fee to have unlimited access to the doctors and any medical service they can provide in the practice, such as stitches or an EKG.

For adults up to age 44, Nunamaker charges $50 a month, pediatric services are $10 a month, and for adults age 44 and older it costs $100 a month. Although Nunamaker calls the practice "cash-only," he accepts credit and debit cards for the fees and services.

Nunamaker and his partner negotiated deals for services outside the office. A cholesterol test costs the patient for $3, versus the $90 or more billed to insurance companies; an MRI can cost $400, compared with $2,000 or more billed to insurance companies.

The practice encourages patients and families to also carry some type of high-deductible health insurance plan in case of an emergency or serious illness requiring hospitalization, Nunamaker said.

Nunamaker said his annual salary is around $200,000, and he gets to spend more time with patients providing better care because he is not watching the clock and he gets to spend more time with this family.

Most of Nunamaker's clients are self-employed, small business owners, or small companies that found the monthly fee and the cost of the high-deductible plan was a cheaper option, CNN/Money reported.

You are just not into the history of Americans. Every President since Teddy Roosevelt have tried to get some form of universal healthcare passed in the United States . We wondered whether Roosevelt really proposed reform on the scale of the near-universal health care Obama advocates, or if the new president was pushing the whole bipartisan-appeal thing a bit far.

We consulted two well-regarded biographers of Roosevelt, H.W. Brands and Kathleen Dalton. Both confirmed that in 1912, when the former Republican president was running as a Progressive Party candidate for what would have been his third term (after a four-year break), the party advocated national health insurance in its platform .

Health care was the 11th issue listed under "Social and Industrial Justice," after occupational safety, a child labor prohibition, a minimum wage, "one day's rest in seven" and other progressive ideas.

"The supreme duty of the Nation is the conservation of human resources through an enlightened measure of social and industrial justice," the platform said. "We pledge ourselves to work unceasingly in State and Nation for ... the protection of home life against the hazards of sickness, irregular employment and old age through the adoption of a system of social insurance adapted to American use."

It’s difficult to imagine a more impressive display of rank hypocrisy and faux outrage than the silliness foisted upon us by Conservatives nonplussed by the IRS’ latest screw-up. After admitting that their Cincinnati office devoted extra scrutiny to the 501(c) applications of groups whose names contained words like “Patriot” and other Tea Party buzzwords, Conservatives are aflame with righteous indignation. In the end it’s just so much bad political theater, a hypocritical smoke screen for the “We value the rule of law, but only if it doesn’t stop us from doing what we want to do” crowd that is the Tea Party.

http://whatwouldjackdo.net/2013/06/irs-scanda...

If Conservatives are so offended by the “onerous” questions asked by a “tyrannical” government, they have an alternative available to them: Don’t apply for tax-exempt status. Groups with “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in their names are apolitical “social welfare” organizations like I’m Freddie Mercury. They exist to engage in partisan political activity; it’s their raison d’ etre…and that’s their right in a free society. What they don’t have is the right to demand tax-exempt status. American taxpayers shouldn’t have to subsidize the activities of such groups, and more than they should be subsidizing groups on the left side of the political spectrum.

Then again, if you’re part of a group that has “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in its name, you probably don’t believe the law applies to you. And your hypocritical ability to play crybaby knows no bounds.

No double standard here, people….

No one is arguing with you that Democrats agreed with Reagan that Government deficit spending , borrowing on the real wealth of future Americans, to make things better today(a Keynesian idea) was good policy . Democrats only disputed where the spending should go--Reagan wanted more government spending on paying for more overseas oil imports and fomenting revolution in Central America with more foreign aid to Nicaraguan contra forces attempting to overthrow Daniel Ortega's freely elected Nicaraguan government. Democrats(with Independents agreement) thought that the Government spending should focus more on social and economic issues at home, national infrastructure repair and retrofit upgrade , home-grown renewable energy development, education, welfare of the least advantaged and most vulnerable very young, poor and elderly citizens, and less on far-flung military adventuresome in volatile areas of the world where Americans had very little in common.
