Any questions?
The intention of Obamacare is to destroy America,

under the pretext of "fairness".

It is not fair that illegals do not have free health insurance paid by American tax payers.

It is not fair that Liberal black women can not have free abortion paid by Christian white male American tax payers.

It is not fair that American hating Muslim "political" refugees do not have free health care from their Kenya Muslim brother at the White House.
Its okay

"They found that by last March, 63 percent of young adults identifying as Republicans had enrolled in a parent’s health plan in the last 12 months, compared to 45 percent of those who considered themselves Democrats. About 26 percent of the 1,800 adults surveyed said they were Republicans, 28 percent said they were Democrats and the rest either said they were independent, some other party, or did not say".

"Republicans and Democrats both took advantage of the young adult provisions,” says Commonwealth vice president Sara Collins, who led the study.“In fact, more Republicans than Democrats did.”

This isn't the same as hundreds of birds falling out of the sky at once in the Midwest and hundreds of dead fish washing ashore along the East Coast, both in 2011.
Honey bees are simply disappearing. I watched a document on it the other day. It's what got me thinking again about the dead birds and fish a few years ago.
Something's going on. Nature knows. Hope we figure it out soon.
It's a widely accepted belief that pesticides and humans interfering with the natural order of things in honey bee hives to produce more honey has caused the disappearance of honey bees worldwide.
Very sad when humans alter or interfere with nature out of sheer greed.
Oh you mean like pumping ton of pollutants into the air including mercury from coal fired plants and blowing the tops off of mountains and polluting streams and rivers just to get at coal more cheaply? Take that up with the people you're shilling for like the Koch brothers.

Republicans Move to the Center? Nope, They’re Crazier Than Ever

Conservative Myra Adams wrote on the Beast over the weekend that she didn’t see how a Republican could get to 270 electoral votes in 2016. She’s correct about that, but she may be wrong in assuming that most of these people even care anymore if they win. I think many would prefer to win, sure, all things being equal, but only on their narrow terms. And if they don’t, there is great glory in losing because of principle, and then once again purifying the party of its sellouts and squishes like Petelos. How much worse can they get? A lot.

yes, it seems they like to lose.

The voucher system - or a version of it - was tried in D.C. Of course, Democrats are now trying to phase it out including Obama.
Even though parents of scholarship recipients (this version of vouchers) offer high praise for the program, crediting it with changing the direction of their children's lives. Patricia William, whose son Fransoir, 11, is a sixth-grader at Sacred Heart, a Catholic school in Northwest, said his growth has been striking.

Taxpayers pay for poor teachers and poor schools. Why not let parents have a choice and taxpayers pay for the school of choice if it means a better education?
Why am I, a resident of TN, paying for some kid to attend Catholic School in DC? Since you can't seem to answer the question the majority of school funding comes from property taxes from within the district. Vouchers are expanding that taxation at the federal level. I thought all you goobs wanted LESS federal government not MORE. What makes it problematic for most inner-city poor is that most private schools aren't in their communities, how do their kids get to and from school?

They now want *FEDERAL* Election observers to come into the hell-hole. Why? Because they don't want a white governor watching them. They want a black brother to help them out.

They have even said as much on local TV News.

Meanwhile....who pays for all of this black BS? Outstate taxpayers and the nation as a whole. Nothing new here!
California is next!!!

See? We Conservative predicted all that! We specifically predicted Detroit bankruptcy while Liberals are stunt it happened!!!

We are now predicting California as a whole state to fail, a city at a time as in a domino effect.

We Conservative predict that illegal heavens will fall first, San Francisco, Stockton, etc.

another IRS scandal.

IRS faces lawsuit for failing to enforce church electioneering ban

The Internal Revenue Service was unable to suppress a lawsuit over its failure to audit thousand of churches that allegedly violated federal tax law by engaging in partisan advocacy.

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman of the Western District of Wisconsin on Monday denied a motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the Freedom From Religion Foundation against the IRS.

“If it is true that the IRS has a policy of not enforcing the prohibition on campaigning against religious organizations, then the IRS is conferring a benefit on religious organizations (the ability to participate in political campaigns) that it denies to all other 501(c)(3) organizations, including the Foundation,” Adelman wrote.

The Internal Revenue Code prohibits tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations, including churches, from intervening or participating in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate.

But many churches have openly defied the ban without consequences. In an annual event called “Pulpit Freedom Sunday,” pastors from more than 1,000 churches have challenged the regulation by preaching about political topics. Some pastors even record their overtly partisan sermons and send them to the IRS.

The FFRF, which is also a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, said allowing churches to engage in politicking but not other nonprofits was unfair. The group alleged the IRS had a “policy of non-enforcement of the electioneering restrictions” when it came to churches and religious organizations.

“As a result, in recent years, churches and religious organizations have been blatantly and deliberately flaunting the electioneering restrictions of §501(c)(3), including during the presidential election year of 2012,” FFRF wrote in its lawsuit.

In a separate lawsuit, the organization has challenged the annual information filings exemption provided to churches and other religious organizations. Tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations must file a detailed information with the IRS to obtain and maintain their tax-exempt status, unless they are a church.

“The time for a free ride for churches is over,” FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said.“The rest of us pay so much more in taxes because clergy pay so much less. If these churches — which are accountable to no one in government yet get so many favors — are allowed to engage in tax-exempt politicking, it would be the ruination of our democracy.”

Galt believes that the death penalty should be limited to those whose guilt is not in question.
Those who kill purely for pleasure or to cover up a penny-ante robbery should be prime candidates for execution, regardless of age.
These three qualify.
I don't disagree that they qualify, what irks me is that you and Waxman, and Floriduh et. al. are ONLY interested in violent crimes in which blacks are the perpetrators.

As for moving, Maglica lives in California, near the plant in Ontario, and is totally loyal to his non-union employees. We need more companies like Mag Instrument.
The larger point is that it is possible to compete with cheap foreign crap if you have a unique product and are prepared to defend it within existing laws and without need for special tariffs.
Yes it is possible and that's what successful Americans are doing. What's not possible, as I keep pointing out to everyone who moans about it, is for us to ever again compete with the likes of Indonesia in widget manufacturing.

Those jobs are gone, need to learn another skill beyond pushing a button on a press in the widget factory.

Well Carol, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities nationwide almost 72% of SNAP recipients are families with children, 45% are in families with elderly or disabled members and 41% are working families. Got that Carol? 41% are workers in low paying jobs like at Wal-Mart. The cheap prices you pay are largely subsidized by the government through snap and Medicaid. Despite your assertion fraud only occurs in 1% of cases.
The fact is, Obamacare job studies have shown it increases job growth, creating millions of new jobs. While the exact numbers vary, the only report of job loss is from a CBO report referring to workers leaving their jobs due to no longer having to rely on their employer for benefits.
More than 96 percent of the nation's firms with 50 employees or more already offer health insurance to their workers despite the rising cost of health care (health care costs rise every year, Obamacare curbs the rate of growth).
Corporate sponsored entities have been reporting that Obamacare "kills jobs", yet no study has shown this. While some multi-millionaire franchise owners have made a lot of noise, most companies say Obamacare won't affect their hiring process or their employees' hours.
One business who has been very outspoken about their dislike of Obamacare is Papa John's. A study shows Papa John's will have to increase the cost of their pizzas by 4 cents a pie to insure workers. All of this while paying Payton Manning to be the poster boy for a campaign to give away 2 million free pizzas.
Not that I'd order one of their crappy pizzas anyway but 4 cents isn't too high a price to see that a fellow citizen gets adequate health coverage.
There are people with no conscience like you that want to let people go hungry just because you have a pathological opposition to government. Likewise you're comfortable with survivors of childhood cancer never being able to get insurance and someone on chemotherapy getting their treatments cut off due to an arbitrary lifetime cap.
Carol has nothing even resembling a "pathological opposition to government", she LOVES the government as long as she's getting SS, Medicare, Student loans for her daughter, etc. Its when the government does something for anyone else that gets her goat. She didn't mind being in the teacher's union but don't get her started on how evil public worker's unions are.

Of course, I understand SNAP is a good program and a necessity in a compassionate society such as ours, Homer.
What YOU don't seem to understand is we have a broken system. There are people who take advantage of those who don't know the difference between compassion and gullibility.
Explain to me why you are so against accountability and oversight and why you support an oversized government who can't do either.
And why you are so against eliminating waste, fraud, abuse and duplication.
I really don't understand.
How much is lost annually in waste, fraud, and abuse of the SNAP program?
