Too many liberals embrace Jesus as their very own to further their "collective conscience"/gullible causes but discard him like an old dish rag when he gets in the way of their secularist self-gratifying causes.
He's a liberal only when they want government to serve as our collective conscience but an intruder if the government tries to impose any sort of moral standard.
A rock and a hard place - where you can always find a liberal.

And when that $400k medical emergency hits, then who pays? Certainly not you.
No problem if necessary, although such an occurrence is highly unlikely and would be covered by catastrophic insurance.

So when these rugged independent friends of yours that choose to pay for their own health care find out they need a $100,000 heart transplant, they can't afford, who pays for it?
Or, all those that simply bet they aren't going to get sick and actually do and then just show up at a medical facility and demand care, who do you think pays for that?
Your blissful denial of reality continues to amaze me.
You libtards denial of reality and willingness to submit yourself to government oversight to every aspect of your life truly amazes me. The solution to the above problem has been explained to you dumbasses over and over again.

Chump change.

Why would someone spend $12-15,000 of their own money each year on such a remote possibility?

Syria's President Bashar Assad has claimed that his opponents have "used up all their tools" and failed to overthrow his regime.
In an interview with the state-run Al-Thawra newspaper published on Thursday, Assad rejected to name what has been happening in Syria since more than two years a revolution.
Instead, he insisted it is a conspiracy by Western and some Arab states to destabilise his country.
"The countries that conspire against Syria have used up all their tools and they have nothing left except direct (military) intervention," Assad said in the interview, adding that such an intervention would not happen.
Assad also praised this week's massive protests by Egyptians against their Islamists leader and said the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi meant the end of "political Islam."
He said that his opponents failed because they tried to bring religion onto the battlefield.
"Whoever brings religion to use for political or factional interests will fall anywhere in the world," Assad said in the interview, again citing Morsi's overthrow by the military in Egypt.
He has also shrugged off calls to step down, saying he will serve the rest of his term and could consider running for another one in next year's presidential elections.

Assad flips the bird to Barack, an international joke.

Senate Republicans Arm the Brotherhood
Don’t be fooled. The choice here was simple: Stand with the Muslim Brotherhood or stand with the American people. Nearly two-thirds of Senate Republicans went with the Brothers.
Let’s be clear about whom Republicans have voted to arm. In late 2010, as I detail in Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, Mohammed Badi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood, called for violent jihad against the United States and Israel. The “Supreme Guide” gleefully added,“The United States is now experiencing the beginning of its end, and is heading towards its demise.” The Brotherhood took pains to post this speech on its Arabic-language website, reflecting its official position.
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/339590...
Kudos to the 18 real Republicans who joined Senator Paul in trying to stop the arming of America’s enemies: Boozman, Coats, Cornyn, Crapo, Cruz, Fischer, Grassley, Heller, Lee, Moran, Risch, Roberts, Rubio, Scott, Sessions, Shelby, Thune, and Vitter. Common sense is on their side. Sadly, history is sure to follow, and probably soon.

Where the f*ck were you people then? Sitting on your asses doing & saying nothing.
Things have improved since Obama took office.
The problem is however that more than likely it would have improved much better without him. His policies have done more damage than good. We would have been better off if he got elected and just played golf.

<quoted text>For whatever reason(s), the defense team early on decided not to pursue the Stand Your Ground line of argument. Eric Racist Holder, his boss the Magic Negro, Thug Trayvon's parents and the Jesse Sharpton Clowns immediately turned this case into a racial B&W issue.

Oddly enough, the parents held a press conference just last week to say that this was NOT a racial case. What happened? I think they are being advised by media consultants who looked at polling numbers and found that America doesn't believe them and the Dark Lords of Liberalism for one second.

So a racist has to do what a racist has to do to convict an innocent George Zimmerman.
It is a LIBERAL issue. They politicize everything because they are losers that want a bigger government on everything.

Sorry lily. We don't live in a mob rule society yet, as much as that is bad news to you.

Go find yourself a time machine so you can go back to a less civilized society of about 800 years ago, where you belong.

From what has occurred so far in the trial it looks like we had a hoodie with a bad attitude.

The hoodie's star witness is a racist who is now a proven liar, just like the rest of you.

She is also a fatty (the term a mature, reasoned person like you likes to use).

Not convicted yet and from what I've seen is going to be proven innocent.

Apparently, young people are already refusing to participate.
Delaying the employer mandate until 2015 was to try and save Democrats' butts in the 2014 elections.
It's a very small part of the ACA law that was inserted in by Senate Republicans and which wasn't very popular or cost effective because the 'fine' would always be lower than the overall price businesses would pay for not insuring their employers (less than 1% of businesses with 3-5 employees) The rest of the ACA law(Obamacare ) has been going forward with great success despite republicans attempting to block implementation of the law by defunding . The most to benefit will be younger , 21 year olds entering the work force for the first time who will have a variety of inexpensive insurance plans to choose from in the state-established health exchanges( soft capitalism as if people mattered!)

Oh wow! Dumb Dave has news!
Let's all stop what we are doing and listen!
Maybe it will be as exciting as the news where Dumb Dave said:
"Bush abandoned Afghanistan" !!!
With accuracy like that, we all take Dumb Dave so seriously!
Now Dumb Dave is saying the banking crisis & world recession are Bush's fault!
"Bush was driving the bus" for the world economy!
M O O N B A T !
It must be news to you dickweeds. You seem to forget about who was President when we started the worst recession in 80 years, two quagmire wars, a housing collapse, doubled the debt, & a near financial meltdown.

It must be news to you. You blame Obama for it.

We went to Afghanistan to get Bin Laden. We were making progress, taking & holding territories.

Then Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant,quit looking for him & took military assets & attention to Iraq. We then lost territories & made no further progress in Afghanistan. We abandoned that effort & concentrated onIraq,a country that had nothing to do with terrorism.

Now ou claim it wasn't Bush's fault, it was the world economy. Very amusing.
