Senators engaged in last-minute jockeying and horse-trading Tuesday as they barreled toward the finish line for the Gang of Eight bill – an effort that could secure a handful of additional Republican votes for immigration reform this week.

Tenzing thinks just because he doesn't mind changing doctors everyone else should have the same mindset. Obviously changing doctors is a big deal to a lot of americans otherwise obama would not have made the promise. As false as it was.
Must be "socialism" then.

I mean, if you have to pay out of your own pocket because you're so strongly opposed to changing doctors it MUST be socialism right?

Right-wing idiots having to pay their own way is the very definition of socialism isn't it?

You are totally ignorant or misinformed about the power industry here and in China.
Frontporchazzhole and RealDumb are full of it.

Wiki - Energy Policy of China: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_policy_of...

"On June 19, 2007, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency announced that a preliminary study had indicated that China's greenhouse gas emissions for 2006 had exceeded those of the United States for the first time. The agency calculated that China’s CO2 emissions from fossil fuels increased by 9% in 2006, while those of the United States fell by 1.4%, compared to 2005.

Coal is the major source of energy in China....China is the world's top coal producer and ranks third in the amounts of coal reserves. It is approximately self-sufficient in coal, with a production of 2.38 billion ton and a consumption of 2.37 billion tons in 2006. China used to be a major coal exporter, but exports have decreased and China may soon become a net importer.

In 2010 China was second highest hard coal importer (157 Mt).

China consumes more coal than any other country. Its share of the world coal production was 48% in 2009 and 28% in 2000. Coal use in the world increased 48% from 2000 to 2009. In practice, the majority of this growth occurred in China and the rest in other parts of Asia.

China currently generates nearly four-fifths of its electricity from coal-fired power stations. It is progressing with the construction of 562 new coal-fired plants over the next few years. In 2007, John Ashton, of the UK Foreign Office, informed the BBC that China was building about two power stations every week. About 79% of China's electricity was produced with coal between 2004 and 2010. Coal electricity increased from 1,713 TWh in 2004 to 3,273 TWh in 2010.

Approximately 7% of China's energy was from renewable sources in 2006, a figure targeted to rise to 10% by 2010 and to 16% by 2020.[17] The major renewable energy source in China is hydropower. Total hydro-electric output in China in 2009 was 615.64 TWh, constituting 16.6% of all electricity generated. The country already has the most hydro-electric capacity in the world, and the Three Gorges Dam is projected to be the largest hydro-electric power station in the world, with a total capacity of 22.5 GW. It has been in full operation since May 2012."

Tenzing is ok with a health care law that sucks as long as its a liberal plan. Can understand there might be something better. You know how libertarians are all about mandates.
Oh yeah, that's why I don't read or reply to your posts, you're an idiot.

Forgot myself there for a minute.

Carry on.

No, especially since he came out within a day or two calling it an "act of terror". Fox doesn't spin it that way of course but I heard the words come out of his mouth.
So, evidently it DIDN'T effect the outcome of the election since that admission was made nearly two months ahead of the election.
Like I said, your severe partisanship makes you stupid.
You are lying through your missing tooth again, Mr. Partisan Libertarian.

Supreme Court Guts The Voting Rights Act
The decision frees up those jurisdictions to change their voting laws without supervision. But the federal government still has the power to target a voting law in court, after it is passed, if it is suspected of having a discriminatory effect on a particular racial group.

now it's just a matter of which southern state gets hit with a federal lawsuit.
Does this mean that Eric Racist Holder is finally going to be forced to crack down on the Black Panthers' racist attacks at polling stations?

No...that sounds more like the results of cronyism lobbying, due to the result of a socialist agenda being pushed, rather than the free market concept.

Medicare premiums (government plus supplemental) are much higher than most people think, far more than the average person pays toward his employer insurance plan. So, when people retire and go on Medicare, they usually experience a significant increase in cost.
There is no free lunch.
That must be why Medicare runs a surplus huh?

It DOES run a surplus doesn't it?

If you were still married and told your wife that she needed to change her ob/gyn, you might get a different response.
Same with many other specialists.
Obamacare is anti-choice.
I AM still married, one immediate benefit of Obamacare is that I may finally be able to get divorced.

Ya see, she won't divorce me as long as I provide her health insurance. Once she can get supplemental coverage under Obamacare we should be able to proceed with the divorce.

I want to thank all of you for taking her off my hands.
