MIDDLE CLASS HELL TO PAY

Aetna says its most popular policy for a 29-year-old man currently costs $118 per month in Richmond. Once Obamacare kicks in, the rate will jump to $225 – an increase of more than 90 percent.

Obamacare supporters say this is only natural, because one of the ideas behind expanding coverage is to get young, healthy people to help pay the health-care costs of sicker, older people.(Not exactly a point they stressed during debate over the bill, but never mind.) That’s why the law forbids charging the latter more than three times the rate charged to the former. Jacking up rates for “young invincibles” is supposed to help hold down rates for old vulnerables.

But it doesn’t appear to be working. Aetna says its rate for the family with two kids is liable to jump 36 percent, and the rate for the older couple is liable to jump 44 percent.

The CareFirst BlueChoice outlook is similar: Premium increases of 108 percent, 40 percent, and 36 percent, respectively. For Group Hospitalization & Medical Services (an independent licensee of Blue Cross and Blue Shield), the percentage hikes are: 113, 89, and 69.

Where’s the “affordable” part in the Affordable Care Act?

I WAS A TANTRIC SEX SLAVE

by Paul Vallely

From:

http://www.xzmzjiemi.com/en/...

The Independent - 10. February 1999

For years June Campbell was the`consort`of a senior Tibetan Buddhist monk. She was threatened with death if she broke her vow of secrecy. But then enlightenment can be like that.

Feet of clay? No, it was a different part of the anatomy - and of all too fleshly substance - which caused the trouble. But, I suppose, you don`t expect Tantric sex to be a straightforward activity. Then again, sex of any kind isn`t really what you`re planning when you become a celibate nun.

.....
"Once I started unravelling my experiences, I began to question everything," she said. That meant not just the actions of a particular guru but the very idea of the guru. She began to wonder whether the Tantra was just a fantasy, and whether there is really any difference between Tantric sex and ordinary sex. She questioned the very concept of enlightenment itself and the practice of meditation. "I realised that in order to be myself I had to leave it all - completely and utterly."

It's just the parallel universe phenomenon again.
Either you're in it or I am.
Zimmerman was clearly going to meet the police at what I understood to be the clubhouse but it was actually the mailboxes.
911 dispatcher:
OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then?[3:42]
Zimmerman:
Yeah, that’s fine.[3:43]
Did you not read that?
Is that where Fox stopped reading to you or something? Read this to the end of the transcript:

911 dispatcher:
OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then?[3:42]
Zimmerman:
Yeah, that’s fine.[3:43]
911 dispatcher:
Alright, George, I’ll let them know you’ll meet them at …
Zimmerman:
Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?[3:49]
911 dispatcher:
OK, that’s no problem.

This is the last thing Zimmerman said to the dispatcher:

Zimmerman:
Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?[3:49]

You could use a look at this map, clearly Zimmerman wasn't heading for the mailboxes:

Black conservatism is a very lucrative business. It takes few resources to begin one's hustle. There are boosters who will back your play. The risks are minimal. Their public is eager to be grifted--is there no easier scam than taking money from the willing? And the skills that one needs to be successful in the black conservative con game are minimal. It is a real quota, and an internalized projection of what conservatives say "affirmative action" policies produce in the workplace: skin color, a hostility towards African-Americans, and a heartbeat are all that one needs to be a successful black conservative media darling. Ability is welcome but secondary and coincidental to one's skin color.

The black conservatives only have to sit around until needed, secure in their break in case of emergency bubble that the White Right has them encased within. While sitting there, the checks continue because they are on retainer. Quite a good deal.

All that is required to be a successful black conservative in the Fox News Tea Party GOP mold is to be a professional contrarian who stands against any position taken by the "civil rights establishment", a willingness to degrade black Americans for the pleasure of white racists, and to have little or no self-respect. The more self-hating and contemptible a black conservative's position on a given political issue, the higher the bounty and pay.

sorry, still not buying.

you might as well quit wasting your time on the subject. plenty of black folks out there who know that black conservatives/FOX race minstrels are no more 'black' than you are.

(Reuters)- President Barack Obama on Monday called the targeting of conservative groups by U.S. tax officials "outrageous" and said that any Internal Revenue Service employees involved would be held accountable.
"We'll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. But I've got no patience with it," Obama said. "I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened."

So? Has he found out anything? That was over two months ago.
No one has been fired. In fact, key players have been promoted.
He called the Benghazi scandal a "sideshow" but CNN is even asking about the survivors and why they aren't speaking up.
Is this really too hard for you?
That's deflection.

Can't answer the question?

As to this post, just because the right is still chewing on a bone doesn't mean there's any meat on it.

Martin Bashir Guest Savages Hannity And Limbaugh For ‘Hustling Residue Of Racism’

On Tuesday, Lehigh Valley University professor of Africana Studies, James Peterson, tore into conservative media personalities Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity over statements they made about Trayvon Martin. Peterson bristled over those hosts calling people like himself “race hustlers,” and identified conservatives attacking what they characterized as a culture in the black community that celebrates violence as the people truly “hustling the residue of racism.”

“This started off with an unarmed teenager who was gunned down while he was minding his own business,” Martin Bashir observed.“How can you explain to our viewers how this suddenly became an excuse to attack black families, so-called gangster culture, drug use? how did that happen?”

Peterson dismissed these comments as “racialized thinking” which has a small audience:

The hysteria madness that sometimes comes from the right — some of this has to do with, you know, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh earn a lot of money by speaking to a small minority within the Republican base and a small minority of Americans that still engage in this kind of racialized thinking.

“It’s funny they call people like myself race hustlers but they’re the ones hustling the residue of racism with these kinds of comments,” Peterson declared.

Prior to the Reagan era I made that same argument. Democrats were considered doves and Republicans hawks but that was strictly party politics within the context of Vietnam because if you looked at every war back from and including Vietnam, you have to go back to the Civil War to find a Republican starting a war.
Neither party is the same party it was before the end of Vietnam so its no longer useful to make that comparison.
Bullshit.
If you look at the history of the Demcoratic Party, you'll find that immediately after World War II they became a functioning element of the communists trying to take over the world. The most prominent Democrat in the country aside from the sitting president, Alger Hiss, the administrative architect of the UN and the post-war reconstruction of the US State Department, was convicted while spying for the Soviet Union. This was devastating to the Democratic Party, and it took the communists in the Democratic Party almost 20 years to recover. That brings us to 1968 when the Democratic Party openly joined the communists.
Vietnam was nothing more than one of several proxy wars that were part of the Cold War. Had Ho Chi Minh not brought the Soviet Union into the civil war he started in Vietnam, it would have never been part of the Cold War and nobody would even know where it is.
Throughout the Cold War the Democratic Party sabotaged the United States and indoctrinated the population with lies. The only interruption to this was the period of time it took the communists in the Democratic Party to recover from the Alger Hiss conviction.
The Democrats have never been anti-war. They have always been pro-war, supporting every anti-American militant around the world.

Should we go over the history of Vietnam, how it became part of the Cold War, how the Democratic Party sabotaged the United States and South Vietnam, and the system of lies the Democrats invented that took more than 30 years to debunk?
Just for old time's sake, lets repeat some of those lies:

Lie number one: The war is unwinnable.
Lie number two: You can't win a war with a bunch of drug addicts. That lie came apart quickly after the American population began working with returning Vietnam veterans and saw first-hand this was a lie.

Lie number three: You can't fight an enemy you can't see.(How about you tell us how the NVA was devastated and running away from any fight and the Viet Cong didn't even exist as a military unit by 1970.)

Lie number four: The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themselves.(How about you tell us what happened in Vietnam in 1972 when the South Vietnamese defeated the single largest communist invasion of the entire war without assistance from US ground combat units.)

The Democrats and treasonous media indoctrinated the population so thuroughly with these lies, it took 30 years to get the truth to even be spoken.

Today, we see the same old Democrats that have existed through most of our lives. Any enemy of the United States is a friend to the Democrats.

Herman Cain Plays the Banjo for White Conservatives (Again)

For a political ideology that ostensibly embraces individualism and rejects the politics of group identity, grievance, and victimology, it is ironic then that Cain has to signal that he is a different type of black man from President Barack Obama. That Cain needed to explain to a Republican audience that black folks are individuals, and not a nameless, faceless, horde of negritude that all walk lockstep like zombies is frightening to say the least--and a damning indictment of those that Cain would call political allies.

....As opposed to expressing rage at racial injustice, Cain and others of his clan choose to express anger and consternation toward black and brown folk who are not Republicans--the ancestors and heirs to a struggle that won contemporary Black Conservatives their freedom--who they describe as still being on "the Democratic Plantation" or as "slave catchers" that run down "free thinking" black people. Once more, this is a tragic play on the stage of American life where in an oddly racialized version of Stockholm Syndrome, Cain and other Black Conservatives play the quislings to their White Conservative masters.

http://open.salon.com/blog/chauncey_devega/20...

it's pretty funny watching you nutjobs following the FOX racism playbook. you all say the same things, you all think the same way, and you all defend those who have turned you into white zombies despite the fact that they are losing their hold on the narrative.

American is not going to suffer right wing BS forever. i wouldn't be surprised to see some of our politicians start talking about doing this:

Like I said, I have a different perspective of both parties. For you to be indignant about any of the above you first have to excuse the exact same behaviors exhibited by your party. Two of your claims are regarding programs the Bush administration started (F&F and the NSA). Your second accusation reeks of the sort of propaganda nonsense you're so fond of, gonna have to prove it before I'll even consider it (Wahabist and Muslim Brotherhood). When y'all rant about Benghazi all I can think about is the first time the date "9/11" became significant and Bushco's attempts to tie 9/11 to Saddam.
The day you're party isn't every bit as fcked up as the Democrats is the day I'll stop calling you lying morons and waving your lies in your faces.
"your party"
I am an independent. Soemtimes I see a lesser of two evils. Too often I see outright treason.
You seem to exhibit the usual characteristic of a Democrat, assuming that if someone isn't a Democrat they can only be a Republican.
This is just one of the many traits you exhibit that expose you as being just another indoctrinated Democrat.

I lean more toward Libertarian than anything else. However, there are things the Libertarian Party promotes that I ardently disagree with. Besides, Libertarianism is best suited for state governments which comprise the federal republic. To have a Libertarian federal government is a contradiction in terms.
Howevere, I think a Libertarian government would not be treasonous, like the Democratic Party government obviously is.
