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).

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.

Those who choose to accept financial responsibility for their own medical care are hardly freeloaders.
On the other hand, those who become insured with taxpayer subsidies under ObamaKare are clearly freeloaders.
The problem is...people are not taking financial responsibility for their medical care. They are gambling on staying healthy just like they gamble on the stock market. Then, when the unpredictable happens and they run up medical bills, these freeloaders just file bankruptcy.

What we need to do is change our bankruptcy laws to treat medical bills like tax debts. If someone chooses to be uninsured or purchase insurance that does not cover a catastrophic illness they need to take responsibility for their actions. Its time we stopped bailing people out.

To the rabid right, wearing a hoodie is grounds for murder.

Zimmerman is guilty of manslaughter.

Zimmeran is a liar. He claimed he knew nothing about the "stand your ground"law but his teacher said otherwise.

Easy to say & I knew you would be saying it as the economy improved.

Obama's policies fighting this recession were basically the same as Romney's & the Republicans.

So, Galt personally knows the Egyptian army's pick of Egypt's chief justice to be interim President? Galt also knows for sure that the Egyptian army's coup of Morsi and replacement by a constitutional court judge appointed by military strongman Hosni Mubarak , and suspension of the constitutionally-elected civilian government are moves back towards more democracy? "In a statement, Obama said the United States supported “a set of core principles, including opposition to violence, protection of universal human rights, and reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people.”

He added:“We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters.” http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/04...

Tax, not a fine.

Without the employer mandate, there is no way to verify if individuals are eligible for the subsidies.

We're all hypocrites at times whether it's intentional or not because we're all human. But liberals seem to reject any reference to God in the public arena at all times and then claim exclusive ownership of Him to achieve self-serving goals or to judge others.

You're probably not like that though.

Happy Fourth. Remember who we are today.
