Climate fluctuates. Always has. The fluctuating ball of fire in the sky probably has a lot to do with it.

Obama preps for cruise missile attack on Syrian government forces

August 23, 2013 7:36 PM

CBS News) WASHINGTON - CBS News has learned that the Pentagon is making the initial preparations for a cruise missile attack on Syrian government forces. We say "initial preparations" because such an attack won't happen until the president gives the green light.

The main disadvantage is that the Act could actually increase health care costs over the short term. That's because many people will receive preventive care for the first time in their lives. This could lead to treatment of heretofore unknown illnesses, driving up costs.(Source: CBO, 2009 Study on Preventive Health Care, August 7, 2009)
Most of the disadvantages are accruing to those individuals and businesses that are paying higher taxes. In addition, somewhere between 3-5 million workers could lose their existing, company-sponsored health insurance if their company finds it more cost-effective to let them buy it on their own and pay the penalty.
That's really typical of you Carol to pick and choose whatever seems to suit your ignorant assertions. How about this from the same source;
The main advantage of the Affordable Care Act is that it lowers health care costs overall by making insurance affordable for more people. That's because insurance will be extended to two uninsured groups. First, it will include many more younger people, who are healthier. This lowers costs overall because they'll pay premiums, but won't use as many services. Second, insurance will become available to people who now use expensive hospital emergency room treatments instead of going to a primary care physician. This lowers costs because they will have their conditions treated before the expensive critical stage.
Another advantage is it provides insurance more fairly. Prior to the Act, only people who fell into one of four categories could get affordable health care:
1. Those who work for a company that provides it.
2. Those who can afford to pay on their own and who have no pre-existing conditions.
3. The very poor, who have Medicaid.
4. Those who are 65 and older, who have Medicare.
If you don't fall into one of those categories, you are forced to pay for health care out of your pocket. If you can't afford it, either the hospital must pick up the cost, or you must declare bankruptcy. The U.S. system was set up this way when the Federal government gave tax breaks to companies who provided health insurance for their employees.
So Carol do you honestly think it's a bad thing that provisions of the ACA will allow people to become aware of medical conditions early on when they're easier and less expensive to treat? What do you think happens when those conditions like hypertension cause more serious medical issues because they weren't dealt with earlier?

he murder of Australian Christopher Lane by three "bored" Oklahoma teens last week has set off a firestorm of controversy about what role race played in the shooting, and now the White House and Rev. Jesse Jackson are taking heat for their treatment of the crime.

Prosecutors say the teen suspects shot and killed Lane "for fun" Friday while he was out for a jog in Duncan, Okla. Lane, 22, of Melbourne, Australia, was in the U.S. attending Oklahoma's East Central University on a baseball scholarship.

Urgent: Should Obamacare be Repealed? Vote Here Now

"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said:'There's our target,'" Police Chief Danny Ford told reporters Monday. "The boy who has talked to us said,'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"

Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and 15-year-old James Francis Edwards Jr. were charged with first-degree murder, while 17-year-old Michael Dewayne Jones, who police say drove the getaway car, was charged with using a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and with accessory to first-degree murder after the fact.

James Johnson, the man who called police on the alleged shooters, spoke out this week, saying he believes the crime was not "for fun," as reported, but a gang initiation. He says the three youths once tried to recruit his own 17-year-old son to join, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Supposed racist tweets from one of the suspects, Edwards, were also revealed this week.

"90% of white ppl are nasty.#HATE THEM," one posting read, according to the Daily Caller.

"Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:)" another said.

"Woods" is reportedly a derogatory slang term for white people.

White House 'Not Familiar' With Lane Murder

Meanwhile, White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday he was "not familiar" with the Oklahoma teens' thrill kill.

Fox News' Ed Henry questioned Earnest about the murder and President Barack Obama's opinion on it during a press briefing Wednesday, but Earnest said he had not heard about the shooting.

"I'm not familiar with that actually," he said before Henry explained it to him. "This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldn’t want to get ahead of the legal process here and it’s clear that law enforcement officials are involved and are investigating."

Henry then pressed him on why Obama chose to comment on the Trayvon Martin case but not the Oklahoma one.

Do you think that only Muslims should be able to defend their homeland against foreign invaders?
No, I believe that right extends to anyone. Say for instance Iraq invaded or attacked us, we'd be well justified to defend ourselves. But that's not what happened now is it? Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Yemen didn't attack us either. Now they're arming up for Syria. Really? We're going to go against the same people al Qaeda is fighting? How fckn retarded is that?

Wow,the government has secrets.
You believe anyone should be able to steal those secrets& broadcast them?
Are you this naive??
Name one major thing either revealed.
We spy on other countries?
The data gathering that the NSA was doing was being monitors & when they stepped out of line, it was discovered & changes made.
Snowden deserves to be in jail. He plotted to stel secrets & turn them over to foreigners.
That's called treason.
No one is reading your emails.
Data mining routines sometimes captured data it should There programs like the NSA are being monitored & there is oversight.
You people need to get a grip & face today's realities.
I have had the government step in & request information from my company because of a cash bank transaction or wire transfers from certain countries. OMG
We need to allow our country to do its job in counter intelligence. That won' work if you keep demanding a published list of weekly activities.
Instead, put your efforts to situation where the government truly over steps its bounds. Like using "Sneak & Peak" to investigate drug deals instead of terrorist activities.
It was revealed that our government spies on us routinely and on a massive scale, right after they lied about doing so.

Secrecy during wartime is necessary so unless you buy this state of perpetual war we have no need for the level of secrecy and the disregard for civil rights we see today. Especially not on this scale.

How many international businesses do you suppose are growing reluctant to expose themselves to spying by doing business with us?

You sound just like the right wingers who've never seen a government that was too big or too powerful enough to suit them.

No, it's no worries for Canadian citizens. When they're sick, they can go the doctor not worrying if they can afford it and not worrying how they will pay for a long hospital stay or surgery and having to go bankrupt and lose their homes.
Americans don't go until it becomes urgent. It's cheaper to take care of a small cyst before it becomes a full blown cancerous tumor. Cheaper to have regular wellness checkups and be aware of your health than wait until you're so sick that you're on your deathbed and broke on top of it.
As long as the Canadians can get to the United States border, Detroit Hospitals make millions on the Canadians--Other wise they wait until they die. Since when does a small cyst turn into cancer? stupid Lily--you can prevent brain cancer by cutting your head off. Go for it.

What the hell are you talking about? Affinity fraud are investment frauds that prey upon members of identifiable groups, such as religious or ethnic communities, language minorities, the elderly, or professional groups.

And who condones the actions of the greatest Wall Street swindler of all time? Of course, a follower of the blue blooded GOP.
It was the Jews. It was an affinity fraud by your own definition.
