Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

And if the West, Co. can't possibly afford the cost of replacing the missing facility and all the surrounding neighborhoods and needs to file bankruptcy, you'd STILL whine and demand that someone else pay for it, right?

It's called the Affordable Care Act, but President Obama's health care law may turn out to be unaffordable for many low-wage workers, including employees at big chain restaurants, retail stores and hotels.
That might seem strange since the law requires medium-sized and large employers to offer "affordable" coverage or face fines.
But what's reasonable? Because of a wrinkle in the law, companies can meet their legal obligations by offering policies that would be too expensive for many low-wage workers. For the employee, it's like a mirage -- attractive but out of reach.
The company can get off the hook, say corporate consultants and policy experts, but the employee could still face a federal requirement to get health insurance.
Many are expected to remain uninsured, possibly risking fines. That's due to another provision: the law says workers with an offer of "affordable" workplace coverage aren't entitled to new tax credits for private insurance, which could be a better deal for those on the lower rungs of the middle class.
Some supporters of the law are disappointed. It smacks of today's Catch-22 insurance rules.
"Some people may not gain the benefit of affordable employer coverage," acknowledged Ron Pollack, president of Families USA, a liberal advocacy group leading efforts to get uninsured people signed up for coverage next year.
"It is an imperfection in the new law," Pollack added. "The new law is a big step in the right direction, but it is not perfect, and it will require future improvements."
Andy Stern, former president of the Service Employees International Union, the 2-million-member service-sector labor union, called the provision "an avoidance opportunity" for big business. SEIU provided grass-roots support during Obama's long struggle to push the bill through Congress.
The law is complicated, but essentially companies with 50 or more full-time workers are required to offer coverage that meets certain basic standards and costs no more than 9.5 percent of an employee's income. Failure to do so means fines for the employer.(Full-time work is defined as 30 or more hours a week, on average.)
But do the math from the worker's side: For an employee making $21,000 a year, 9.5 percent of their income could mean premiums as high as $1,995 and the insurance would still be considered affordable.
Even a premium of $1,000 -- close to the current average for employee-only coverage -- could be unaffordable for someone stretching earnings in the low $20,000's.
With such a small income, "there is just not any left over for health insurance," said Shannon Demaree, head of actuarial services for the Lockton Benefit Group. "What the government is requiring employers to do isn't really something their low-paid employees want."
Based in Kansas City, Mo., Lockton is an insurance broker and benefits consultant that caters to many medium-sized businesses affected by the health care law. Actuaries like Demaree specialize in cost estimates.
Another thing to keep in mind: premiums wouldn't be the only expense for employees. For a basic plan, they could also face an annual deductible amounting to $3,000 or so, before insurance starts paying.
"If you make $20,000, are you really going to buy that?" asked Tracy Watts, leader of the health care group at Mercer, a major benefits consulting firm.
And low-wage workers making more than about $15,900 won't be eligible for the law's Medicaid expansion, shutting down another possibility for getting covered.
The Affordable Care Act...the "train wreck that's coming."

Like we're not already off the tracks.

But it's waiting in the wings. Everybody must have insurance on January 1. But hardly anyone knows what the heck to do. Obama MUST be thinking, "Why did I want to win again?"

Deputies escort dismissed George Zimmerman juror from courthouse

Some GREAT comments :)
Odds are, George Zimmerman will NOT get a proper jury and he'll lose his case as a result. Next, he'll have to appeal and keep appealing until he is finally released because of a long list of justice being denied. The Magic Negro and Eric Racist Holder consciously and maliciously trashed his chances for a fair trial.

If he was a Muslim or if he was black, this case would have never happened. It is shameful that America still has to fight black racism even after MLK's repeated speeches about wishing that his children be judged by the content of their hearts and not by the color of their skin.

Speaking of the Affordable Care Act:

New details about some states' insurance exchanges are raising doubts about the overall affordability of what are supposed to be budget-friendly plans.

Fifty-four percent of Americans oppose the law. That's little changed from 2010, when President Barack Obama signed the legislation.

The government will offer subsidies to help pay premiums for people earning up to four times the federal poverty level, and it will provide additional help for lower-earning families and individuals to cover out-of-pocket expenses.

Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style
K. Alan Snyder - 08/20/08
Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself “a New Dealer to the core.” He summarized his views in this way:“I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didn’t trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasn’t enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine.” When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded “he was just spouting Republican propaganda.”
Of course, Reagan was to change his views drastically in the coming years, but even when one examines his later comments about Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal, one comes away with the sense that he never got over his youthful admiration of a man he considered a great leader. He would carefully parse his criticisms of the New Deal, often focusing on the honorable intent of the heart over the practical effect of the policies. Critique and praise would be mixed together as he attempted to separate the man from his programs.
http://www.firstprinciplesjournal.com/article...
I've heard all of this before but it changes nothing. I once believed in Santa Claus, Liberalism and the NAACP as a younger person. Today, I can stand here and laugh at myself back then. How's that saying again? "If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain."

I now possess a brain and I strongly believe that Ronald Regan traversed this same journey from giddy childhood and into mature wisdom.

Only his journey produced a thousandfold more benefit to mankind than mine.

Florida V Zimmerman: Uncovering The Malicious Prosecution of My Son – By Robert Zimmerman Sr.
http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/06/1...
I offer up even more fervent prayers for George and the entire Zimmerman family.
“Lord, I just pray right here, right now for your righteous, divine, spiritual intervention for George and the Zimmerman family. May the precious blood of Jesus wash over them, protect them and may YOUR LIGHT of truth burn through the evil that is attacking this family and spreading across our our once fair land.We, I know as your word has been given, written that your truth will prevail over any and all evil. I pray for your covering of grace that can only be given by you Lord for George Zimmerman and his family. Bless Father Zimmerman for his book and standing up to the evil that is threatening his beloved son and they are all your children. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen”

And nine Republican Governors out of ten ,including Jan Brewer of Arizona, once one of Obamacare's loudest critics, now approve of Obamacare, but have a fierce fight in their own state legislatures' with entrenched reactionary forces loyal to leaving things as they were to get worse . It'll be ironic when the most important wedge issue will be how strongly supportive republicans will be on Obamacare as the determining factor whether they win more seats in the House and Senate in 2014.
