Only a GD idiot would invest millions in new buildings & spend tens of thousands on advertising only to put their customers in front of a minimum wage employee with no benefits.

At least you are honest. You admit, McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, are idiots. But, darn, those idiots earn millions upon millions, so do the stockholders These companies hire folks with limited skills. They offer them the opportunity to be employed. Being employed, something alien to you.

<quoted text>in September 2009, President Obama bounded up to the U.N. General Assembly podium and announced:“We've re-engaged the United Nations… We have sought…a new era of engagement with the world.” He would “begin a new chapter of international cooperation” and he promised “we will work with the U.N.” In short, Gulliver marched into the UN and demanded to be tied down. The O'bama doctrine is he can't make up his own mind. He is skeered of Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the world.
Before the Boy Messiah can make any global move, he has to first get a note from his mother - the U.N.

It would appear that you don't get it. The IRS is not going to be making decisions on who gets what; that's what insurance companies do and always have. That's how they make profits; denying procedures.
Many doctors push surgeries onto their elderly patients and they die quicker than if they left well enough alone. A friends father underwent surgery and chemotherapy for stage 4 bone cancer; he was dead in 6 months and those last months were just awful for him. He would have been better off taking pain meds. He was in his late 80
You must be terrible at choosing a health care insurance provider. My wife had a cancerous kidney removed when in her early 60's. Insurance paid, total tab not counting follow up over $30,000. My daughter who is deceased spent 10 years with various ailments before she passed. Last hospital stay, IC, about 30 days, tab well over a hundred grand. The insurance company came thru. A couple of years ago an artery in my abdomen ruptured, 5 days in hospital, IC and recovery, bill in excess of $115,000, guess what our cost was $1300 plus about $400 for an ambulance.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll has finally found something that Americans like even less than Congress: the possibility of U.S. military intervention in Syria. Only 9 percent of respondents said that the Obama administration should intervene militarily in Syria; a RealClearPolitics poll average finds Congress has a 15 percent approval rating, making the country’s most hated political body almost twice as popular.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll was taken Aug.19-23, the very same week that horrific reports emerged strongly suggesting that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people, potentially killing hundreds or even thousands of civilians. If there were ever a time that Americans would support some sort of action, you’d think this would be it. But this is the lowest support for intervention since the poll began tracking opinion on the issue. The survey also found that 60 percent oppose intervention outright, with the rest, perhaps sagely, saying that they don’t know.
So *NOW* where does the Boy Messiah get to establish a terrorist country for his Muslim Brotherhood? He's running out of options.

Maybe he could just say pretty-please to Vladimir doing one of his world famous bows with no pants on?

The investigation into the Obama government spying on the general population, dufus.
Let's go over the rules again.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
This means the government cannot collect any information on any American citizen without a warrant.
So, tell us how the investigation into the Obama administration's unconstitutional syping on the population is going.
And, why would any president feel it is necessary to spy on the population? Don't you think that's being paranoid to a point of being delusional?

One more time you hero, the boy president nobama screwed up. All he has to do his issue a regulation requiring replanting. One thing the boy is good at is issuing new regulations.

yes, i blame Reagan for raising taxes 11 times.
i blame Bush for making sure those who couldn't afford a home got one anyway.
Palin who?
and Bush 1 was cool. he also raised taxes.
I want to say this one more time, and I want to thank again all the people here from the private sector who have worked with Secretary Cisneros on this: Our home ownership strategy will not cost the taxpayers one extra cent. It will not require legislation. It will not add more Federal programs or grow Federal bureaucracy.

It's 100 specific actions that address the practical needs of people who are trying to build their own personal version of the American dream, to help moderate income families who pay high rents but haven't been able to save enough for a downpayment, to help lower income working families who are ready to assume the responsibilities of home ownership but held back by mortgage costs that are just out of reach, to help families who have historically been excluded from home ownership. Today, all across the country, I say to millions of young working couples who are just starting out: By the time your children are ready to start the first grade, we want you to be able to own your own home.

All of our country will reap enormous benefits if we achieve this goal. Home ownership encourages savings and investment. When a family buys a home, the ripple effect is enormous. It means new homeowner consumers. They need more durable goods, like washers and dryers, refrigerators and water heaters. And if more families could buy new homes or older homes, more hammers will be pounding, more saws will be buzzing. Homebuilders and home fixers will be put to work. When we boost the number of homeowners in our country, we strengthen our economy, create jobs, build up the middle class, and build better citizens.

I thank Millard Fuller especially for the work that Habitat for Humanity has done in building better citizens. I remember the day we dedicated the very first Habitat house built in my home State, that went to a woman who went to church with me and worked for the State government and still her income was so low she was eligible to be considered there. And I was so proud of her because she and her children, for the first time, felt that all these incredible years of sacrifice and labor she had endured were about to be rewarded. And it made her a better citizen, and it made everybody that put a hammer to a nail a better citizen, and it made all of us who saw it unfold better citizens.

H.L. Mencken once wrote that "A home is not a mere transient shelter, its essence lies in its permanence, in its quality of representing in all its details the personalities of the people who live in it."

What we are doing today will allow more homes to be blessed by more families. I hope it will start all these young people on a path that will take them to great joys in their personal lives, and perhaps to other homes, but something they will always know that their country wanted them to have because they were entitled to it as a part of the American dream.

Thank you very much.

It's what some of us have been saying for years including a former Iraqi general, Georges Sada, who served under Saddam Hussein before defecting and detailed in a comprehensive book how the Iraqi Revolutionary Guard moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria.

Where else would the Assad regime have acquired bio-chemical WMDs?

Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.

Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.

Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.

Fannie Mae recently announced a $50 million program to develop 600 homes for the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Franklin, I appreciate that commitment. They also announced $12.7 million investment in a condominium project in Harlem. It's the beginnings of a series of initiatives to help meet the goal of 5.5 million families. Franklin told me at the meeting where we kicked this office, he said, I promise you we will help, and he has, like many others in this room have done.

Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans. Freddie Mac is also working with the Department of Defense to promote construction and financing for housing for men and women in the military.

There's all kinds of ways that we can work together to meet the goal. Corporate America has a responsibility to work to make America a compassionate place. Corporate America has responded. As an example -- only one of many examples -- the good folks at Sears and Roebuck have responded by making a five-year,$100 million commitment to making homeownership and home maintenance possible for millions of Americans.

There have been other steps that are being taken to close the homeownership gap. And you've heard some of the stories here today, people much more eloquent than me, to talk about what's taking place on the front line of meeting this national goal.

Stay on topic fkface.
Medicare should not be paying for that crap unless the old gal had a serious and documented deficiency. Fk the old lady for cheating MediCare, fk you for being stupid and fk Lois Lane for reposting a nutjob email.
Elderly people often need B12 injections because their bodies are not able to produce the intrinsic factor, an enzyme needed to absorb B12. Also, a poor diet and some health conditions inhibit absorption of Vitamin B12.

An elderly person is more prone to suffer from B12 deficiency because the human body's ability to absorb B12 decreases with age, due in large part to a reduction in stomach acid.

One shot will last for months and even years.

What's it to you anyway? You have no problem supporting able-bodied people who live off your paycheck instead of their own because it's better than working but you'd deny an elderly person a B12 shot?

Juan Williams Calls Out 'Corrupted' Civil Rights Leaders:'They're Happy to Take the Money and Shut Up'

Williams said the tradition of Dr. King is to stand up and act against bad schools, rap culture and the breakdown of the traditional family.

“The civil rights challenge of this generation is education,” Williams said.“Dr. King would never allow anybody to buy his silence, to buy him off.”

Williams added,“Sometimes courage requires that you speak to people who you love in ways that challenge them. The civil rights leadership is all too happy to take the money and shut up. That is corruption.”

Kudos to Juan Williams for having the courage to come out and say what many black leaders will not.

So can someone explain to me the costs of Obamacare?

Let's say an employer drops someone's health coverage and private insurance is too expensive.

Or someone can't afford private insurance and has to go on government exchanges.

Anyone know the approximate cost for someone, let's say, in their 40s and earning 50k?

Only one month and a few more days and it's time to figure out if you're covered or not and know exactly what to do if you aren't.

Anyone got it all down yet?

So if employers haven't dropped the axe by now, can you assume you're still covered? Or not?

What if people who aren't insured but don't qualify for government exchanges still can't afford it?

If anyone can simplify it, I'd appreciate it.
