I wonder how many people are out there trying to figure out where they are going to come up with the money to pay for the fine (tax in other words) because they don't have health insurance as they can't afford it)

Way to pile on the poor people Prez!

What you are witnessing is the fundamental transformation of America into a socialist state. There can be no doubt. However this is not reversible. As technology replaces lower paying jobs (manual labor will be all but gone) the need for a well educated population will necessitate great change in the way things are done today. A smarter more rational mind is a mind that will reject the herd mentality. All the problems of today will be gone in ten years. Humans have a distinct inability to project out the causes and effects on their lives that technology will have.
I was reading an article about how smart phones are damaging to human vision and thought to myself how evolution is too slow to prepare us for technology.

So are you saying the occurrence described in "patriot's" post didn't actually happen? That his sources were sensationalizing a non-event? Sorta like this:

A Google News search of Springfield High School returns zero results about such an occurrence, I would check your sources if I were you.
Jews News "It ain't news if it ain't Jews News" sounds pretty dubious and was the basis for the article you linked.
Your were implying it was made up because your search yielded zero results. Now you're trying to move the goal line.

Your "hypothetical" would have been a lot more meaningful if your stock had gone from $5/share to $25/share since that's more in line with what the market has done while he's been President. However, I don't think you would get to blame him for that either, its amazing how much power y'all think he has.
How in the fck was that my hypothetical? What is it with your loony left wingers and reading comprehension?

Of course they are. Many students get an AA for the basics and transfer credits to a four-year university to study courses for their majors. Myself included.

They're a lot less expensive and more easily assessable just for the first two years.

Of course, most all programs to learn a skill or trade are in community colleges.

Or the plethora of SallyMae schools which Galt seems to confuse with CC's.

In our area the CC's have become known a State Colleges for they offer certain 4 year degrees such as nursing. The four year course list will grow to include other fields___face it there isn't enough room in the universities to satisfy the needs of the job market.

In our area these local colleges offer various scholarships including for athletics. Galt's mindset is locked into small town 1950's___doesn't make him a bad guy___just a fkn dumbazz.

"As California prepares to launch its health care exchange, consumer groups are worried the uninsured could fall victim to fraud, identity theft or other crimes at the hands of some of the very people who are supposed to help them enroll.The exchange, known as Covered California, recently adopted rules for a network of more than 21,000 enrollment counselors who will provide consumers with in-person assistance as part of the federal Affordable Care Act. In some cases, they will have access to personal and financial information, from ID cards to medical histories.But the state insurance commissioner and anti-fraud groups say the exchange is falling short in ensuring that the people hired as counselors are adequately screened and monitored.Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones also said the exchange does not have a plan for investigating any complaints that might arise once the counselors start work. That means consumers who might fall prey to bogus health care products, identity theft and other abuses will have a hard time seeking justice if unscrupulous counselors get hold of their Social Security number, bank accounts, health records or other private information, he said.We can have a real disaster on our hands, Jones, a Democrat, said in an interview."

How many years is Oklahoma still on probation for violating recruiting rules? Oklahoma was better off when they were a socialist state. "In the first two decades of the twentieth century the Socialist Party of Oklahoma consistently ranked as one of the top three state socialist organizations in America. At the party's height in the elections of 1914, the Socialist Party candidate for governor, Fred W. Holt, received over 20 percent of the vote statewide. In Marshall and Roger Mills counties, where the Socialist Party was strongest, Holt captured 41 and 35 percent of the vote, respectively. More than 175 socialists were elected to local and county offices that year, including six to the state legislature. As these statistics make clear, to a greater extent than anywhere else in the nation, the Socialist Party in Oklahoma played an active, potent role in state and local politics. "

Top-ranked universities will accept few, if any, credits from community colleges.

Nursing is a special case, but the same type of schools churn out education graduates who have little chance of obtaining a full-time job in most markets. In most states, these schools pre-date community colleges rather than evolving from them.

Half the students in community colleges are studying "criminal science" and end up as minimum wage mall security guards.
