False - The point is, millions of medicare seniors who depend on it are being shafted up the azz. Are you willing to let Grandma die because she can't get proper care? You people have no idea how this Prez has screwed up senior care. People are dying because they can no longer afford the co-pay for their medicines. Their cardiac specialists can either no longer see them or are retiring because they can't afford private practice.
I'm also aware of how many are so clueless as to the differences out there.(as in SOME very limited income Seniors continue to contribute monthly-MORE than their fair share, bless their non-greedy, good faith hearts)

When anyone depends solely on the grubbermint, that's all they get...that or the "right" to keep contributing to some additional coverage beyond the DRAINS of the ever swelling ranks of free riding and slackerTic lazy azz moochers.

Scary isn't it.

bad enough that you FOXbots try to tell us you're right on the back of right wing nonsense.
Thank GOD for left wing media bias, it is the only fight we have against truth, justice and the American way. I feel like Superman!

I prefer to ignore the truth and justify my delusions by criticizing Fox, like you do. It is much more convenient and helps me stay fashionable (at least while I am zipped, he, he).

And, this book that hit the shelves this past Tuesday should be burned or at least banned: "Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election — and How to Stop Them from Doing it in 2016." It is co-written by Bozell and Graham.

Asked why he used the word "collusion" in the title, Bozell responded, "Collusion was a tough word; 'stealing an election' is a tough phrase and at first I was uncomfortable with it but then when we looked at the research I stood by the statement and by that headline.

"Let's look at one example, the scandal coverage," he continued. "With every single Republican who appeared on the scene in 2011 and 2012 in the primary process, every single one had a major negative story attributed to them which became national news. Things like a rock on a ranch that the Perry family used in 1988 was a national news story. Herman Cain and the alleged affairs that he had. Even a national news story on who Karen Santorum dated before she even met Rick Santorum."

On the Democratic side, however, Bozell, said the media "actually presented to the American people the idea that there was no scandal involving Barack Obama, never mind covering up."

Bozell said the collusion is continuing, pointing to the media coverage of the Obama administration's recent decision to delay implementation of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

"There is a deliberate decision to censor news from the American people if it goes against the narrative of the Obama presidency and the Obama legacy and [that] is a perfect example," he explained.

"How could that not be news?

How could the IRS scandal have disappeared as a news story?

How could it not be news what's going on in Benghazi, which we have not resolved?

So many of these things are absolutely unquestionably news stories and the media are deliberately avoiding them. It's censorship."

Asked how he would grade the major television networks, Bozell said NBC and MSNBC are "probably the worst because NBC should denounce MSNBC but they've become two peas in a pod."

He continued, saying "ABC and CBS are deliberately involved in the act of censorship. Both of them are guilty of not covering stories that hurt the Obama narrative" and "CNN has become a laughing stock. It used to be a serious journalism enterprise. No one's watching it and the reason no one's watching it is because there's nothing serious there."

As for Fox News, Bozell said, "There's one reason why it's public enemy number one. It's because it's the only network that covers the news."

Bozell also warned that conservatives need to stop the media from doing in 2016 what it did in 2012.

"Conservatives have to be a lot smarter with the news media and they have to understand that the news media is their biggest problem. If they can't get their message to the American people free of these distortions, then it doesn't matter how good their message is," he said.

"I do believe, however, that there are ways around it. There is this growing entity called social media where you can communicate directly with the public. The Romney effort ignored it completely. The Rove effort ignored it completely. The Obama effort spent tens of billions, and it worked."

Quick, get me Obama's IRS on the phone, these 2 guys need an audit, STAT!

Obama and GOP Speak Same Language: Corporate Tax Cuts = Jobs
President Obama, like his Republican colleagues, says the word “jobs” when he really means “corporate tax cuts.” He lectured in the same Corp-Speak in Chattanooga, where he told low-wage workers how wonderful their bosses are, and what economic miracles could be accomplished by lavishing corporations with “incentives” to do the right thing.

Obama and GOP Speak Same Language: Corp Tax Cuts = Jobs

There is no jobs creation plan, only a series of corporate tax giveaway programs.”

President Obama went to a low wage warehouse in Chattanooga in the right-to-work state of Tennessee to renew his offer to massively lower corporate tax rates – from 35 to 28 percent – and had the nerve to call it a Grand Bargain for the middle class. Surrounding the president were employees who do backbreaking work for $11 or $12 an hour – and can by no stretch of imagination be considered middle class. Obama praised their cutthroat Amazon corporation bosses as the sort of benign masters that he’s depending on to bring the country back to economic health – once they’ve been properly incentivized with lower tax rates, on the one hand, and outright public subsidies, on the other. Amazon is only invested in Tennessee because the state has given the corporation huge tax breaks that will allow it to undercut other book sellers, forcing them out of business and their workers into unemployment. Amazon’s 7,000 new, low wage jobs come at the cost of lay-offs and bankruptcies among its competitors. It’s the Wal-Mart business model, which is quite popular at the White House.

The Obamas have a special place in their hearts for corporations of all kinds, as long as they’re big. The president told the Amazon warehouse workers, whose jobs are not very good, that he wants to create good jobs in other industries through renewable energy and electric cars and cheap natural gas – that is,“fracking.” Of course, by that he means providing additional government subsidies and tax breaks to corporations. Good jobs, presumably, will trickle down. Obama urged Congress to pass his Fix-It-First program to rebuild bridges and other public infrastructure, while blaming the Republicans for gutting government through “sequester” of spending. But it was Obama who proposed the sequestration disaster in the first place, as part of his earlier Grand Bargain with the GOP, in 2011.

“Good jobs, presumably, will trickle down.”

Obama used the Chattanooga visit to re-pitch much of his last State of the Union Address, in which he pledged to work for a public private partnership to upgrade the privately-owned U.S. infrastructure, such as energy grids and ports. That’s a euphemism for spending billions in public monies to subsidize private, profit making corporations. Obama calls that a jobs program.

He also thinks workers should be appreciative of the Free Trade deals whose proliferation has coincided with the destruction of the U.S. manufacturing base and the loss of millions of jobs that really were “good.” Obama promised to call a meeting of the CEOs of the same corporations that sent the jobs overseas, to ask them to do more for the country – as if they haven’t done enough, already. He’s got another program, called Select USA, that offers tax breaks and other incentives to foreign corporations that locate facilities in the U.S. Since so many U.S. headquartered high-tech corporations, like Apple, are actually Chinese companies for purposes of employment, Obama might as well combine his various tax break programs and hand out the goodies to CEOs regardless of nationality. In fact, that’s close to the actual practice. There is no jobs creation plan, only a series of corporate tax giveaway programs.

But that didn't happen, did it? This teacher got paid for sitting in a room and surfing the Internet for five months before she was fired - and then she sued and got her job back.
Competition and choice is the ONLY solution to this kind of insanity.
School systems should monitor internet activity and set filtered time allocations according to instructor schedules.

Maybe that would help some of them stop their addictions to the No intelligence required social media sites...and to start teaching again!

You would never admit Democrats loosening bank requirements for bad mortgages loans is responsible for getting us into this mess to begin with. This raw fact eludes you despite proof beyond any doubt.

So why would you admit your party's policies are continuing to fail us despite the economy and the GDP under republican leadership in the past did just fine - and despite democrats reneging on promises to cut the budget in exchange for tax increases under republican leadership in the past?

You are the poster child of a blind useful idiot, sonic, sorry to say.

Think of it like this. Democrats are ones who broke the expensive lamp in the first place but the parents still put them in charge of breaking everything else.

You're like the gullible parent who will find out too late you misjudged the wrong child.

yesterday, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf quietly pointed out that, due to an "abundance of caution," an unspecified number of US embassies and consulates in the Muslim world will be closed this weekend (and diplomatic facilities maybe longer). House foreign affairs committee chairman Royce suggested this morning that this closure is 'Al-Qaeda-threat-related'; and, as AP reports, the last major warning came last fall when embassies warned American diplomatic facilities across the Muslim world of potential violence around Sept. 11.(and the disaster that was Benghazi).
