No more debt. Not for any reason.
When any agency or department expends all money appropriated, shut that agency or department down until there is more money in the treasury to appropriate.

No more debt. Not for any reason.

The Commonwealth Fund last week released an interesting study (PDF) of young people and Obamacare. It found that between 2011 and 2013, the number of people aged 19 to 25 who had been on a parent’s health insurance plan in the previous year rose from 13.7 million to 15 million.“Of the 15 million young adults on a parent’s plan, an estimated 7.8 million likely would not have been eligible to enroll in that plan prior to the Affordable Care Act,” the Commonwealth Fund reported. The report also found that Republicans were more into this provision of the ACA than Democrats. In March 2013, 73 percent of young Republicans surveyed had heard of the provision, compared with 63 percent of Democratic youths. Maybe it’s because they were more likely to be benefitting from the expansion.“In March 2013, 63 percent of Republican young adults had enrolled in a parents’ policy, compared with 45 percent of Democrats,” the report said.
Rebates are a second, apparently non-objectionable component of Obamacare that has already kicked in. The ACA set standards for the insurance industry, stipulating that firms must spend a certain amount (80 percent) of the premiums they collect on patient care. Under Obamacare, insurers that choose to spend more money on administration, or marketing, or salaries, or dividends have to send rebates to customers. This summer, the first rebates were sent out, some $500 million to 8 million Americans. Now, these rebates are likely to have been shipped disproportionately to Republican households—those with high-end, employee-subsidized coverage. But I haven’t been able to turn up any examples of people refusing thechecks, or sending them back, or burning them—an act FreedomWorks is suggesting people do to their fictional “Obamacare cards.”(If you did burn your Obamacare rebate check, please tweet at me:@grossdm I’d love to speak with you.) Republicans, like Democrats, enjoy receiving checks in the mail.
Then there’s the case of pre-existing conditions—another aspect of Obamacare that is popular among some Republicans. In the old days, they used to say that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. When it comes to health insurance, it seems a liberal is a conservative who has been mugged by an illness. After having a devastating stroke in 2012, Sen. Mark Kirk had an epiphany about the inadequacy of rehabilitation services for poor people.“My concern is what happens if you have a stroke and you’re not in the U.S. Senate, and you have no insurance and no income,” he told National Journal.“That’s the question I have been asking, and the reality is that if you’re on Illinois Medicaid and are a stroke survivor, you will get just five visits to the rehab specialist.”
....even as they cavil about ripping up Obamacare, and hence the ban on pre-existing conditions, it is common to hear some Republicans speak kindly of the ban.
This is a dynamic we’ve seen over and over again in the past 80 years. Republicans shriek, cry socialism, and offer full resistance to any effort to expand social insurance. Then, after a certain amount of time passes and social insurance measures become popular and effective, they stand foursquare behind them and demand they be protected. Every single stinking component of FDR’s New Deal was a disaster, but don’t you dare touch Social Security! Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society program was a debacle, but keep the government out of Medicare!

Duh, more Republican young adults are on their father's health insurance plans than Democrat young adults. Unlike the young Democrats, most young Republicans actually know who their father is. Also, most of those insured on their parent's plans are on plans made available through employment and under the Obama Regime most Democrats don't have to work.

Read carefully, dumbass.
"If it's on the W-2, it's already taxable, dumbass."

Now, for the proof:

For the very ignorant students in the class:
The value of health care coverage provided by your employer is now reported in Box 12 with Code DD to identify the amount. The amount reported in the box should include both the portion paid by your employer and any amount paid in by you.
Prior to ObamaKare, this wasn't on the W-2.
So why is this information showing up on your form W-2 now? Under ObamaKare, most employers must now report the cost of your health care plan. A few small businesses have received an exemption from reporting under the transitional relief subjectively offered by IRS.
If it's on the W-2, it's already taxable, dumbass. The only thing that's required is the order given to the IRS to apply a tax. I'm thinking that will happen in 2017. It doesn't really matter who wins, as far as this goes. The government has been driven so far into debt, it will have to use any excuse it has to get revenue. With the economic "recovery" putting 5 people into poverty and being supported by the government for every tax payer it generates, the IRS will be given the order to count the health care benefit as taxable income and apply the tax.
Do you ever know anything about what comes out of your mouth?

Your content is crap. There are no facts relating to your claim that Obama backs the Muslim Brotherhood.
You & Glenn Beck, two turds in the same toilet bowl.
Perhaps you would like to respond to the content of the post. Here it is again for your convenient reference. Please identify any statement that isn't accurate:

Before President Barack Obama departed for Israel earlier this year, he took time to consult with Mohamed Magid.
White House officials have praised Magid's organization, ISNA, as a pillar of the American-Muslim community.
We know from the Muslim Brotherhood's own documents that ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood front -- they say that explicitly in one of their 1991 secret memos. Internal Muslim Brotherhood documents, captured by the FBI, name ISNA as one of 29 American-Muslim organizations with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
They said their work in America is “a kind of grand jihad, in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”
Obama is a key player in this “grand jihad”.
ISNA began in 1982 in Plainfield, Ind. A founding member, Sami al Arian, was convicted in a U.S. federal court of conspiring to support the terror group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Adurahman Alamoudi also worked closely with ISNA for years. He's currently serving a federal prison sentence for funding al Qaeda.
ISNA's founders were even given a tour of the White House in March 2013.
In short, Obama is part of the jihad, and is working toward the destruction of the evil United States.
Perhaps that explains why Iraq devolved into chaos and the Taliban are once again a threat in Afghanistan, and Al Qaeda went from hiding in caves to taking over countries since Obama was made president.

RNC Chairman: What Race Problem?
While reflecting on the March on Washington's legacy, the GOP leader makes a miscalculation.
I asked Priebus whether in light of the many racially inflammatory comments made by Republican leaders recently (which you can read here, here and here) and the many more made by Republican leaders as a whole since President Obama took office (which you can read here), he as party leader would consider apologizing on behalf of the party for such rhetoric and setting a zero-tolerance policy so that such rhetoric stops being commonplace. The chairman replied that he has criticized specific Republicans for specific instances of offensive language, most notably when he pressed for the resignation of an Illinois Republican Party leader who made racist and sexist comments about multiracial Republican congressional candidate Erika Harold. But in a baffling turn, Priebus then seemed to insinuate that the GOP doesn't have any more of a racist rhetoric problem than the Democrats do.
"Look, I don't think either party has a monopoly on stupid comments," he told The Root. "I think both parties have said plenty of stupid things, and when people in our party say them, I'm pretty bold in coming out and talking about them, whether it be the issue in Illinois [involving Erika Harold] or Todd Akin or a variety of issues."
When reminded by The Root that there is precedence for such a unilateral apology -- former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman apologized before the NAACP for the racist tactics employed by the party at the height of the so-called "Southern Strategy" of the 1960s -- Priebus gave a curious reply: "I don't know what the back story is. You're giving me facts and back-channel information I'm not aware of. I know his [Mehlman's] speech was before the NAACP. I thought he did a great job. He was a good chairman." But the significance of Mehlman's speech is not some sort of obscure secret. It netted extensive coverage in mainstream outlets like the Washington Post, USA Today and many others. Mehlman's apology was a public acknowledgement that there was a systemic problem that at one time plagued the party he was tasked with leading.
For Priebus to be unaware of the significance of such a historic moment of outreach to minority voters in the party's recent history is worrisome. But for Priebus to refuse to acknowledge that the party is plagued with an equally troubling systemic race problem today is, at its best, a case of extreme denial and, at its worst, intentionally misleading. Before President Obama's election, I don't recall Republican congressmen being taken to task for referring to African-American elected officials as "boy," which is how Rep. Geoff Davis referred to the president after he took office. The fact that the number of racially inflammatory slights originating from Republican leaders the first year the president took office was enough to fill an entire slideshow speaks volumes about the depth of the party's problem. Yet, based on Priebus' logic, the racism is not a party-specific issue but a person-specific issue. Except all of these specific people seem to have the same political party in common.

Anyways, after I fled my enemies last night, I looked through the family album that I keep handy on the coffee table for trips down Memory Lane. Boy, was I thinner 30 years ago! LOL. Probably by at least 20 pounds. In those days, the clam would lube up just THINKING of getting filled up with a new life. And let me tell you (in spite of what you might have wrongly guessed), I wasn't any too particular about the ethnic background of the "contributor" to my little project. I always felt great when gravid, btw, and only scraped them out when the prospective daddy/meal ticket "blew town," so to speak, when I started to "show."
I mean, what was I supposed to do, slave away in walmart or a rug factory while that parade of losers skipped off on their merry way? Yes, life IS precious, but I wasn't going to give life to perhaps a prospective future country music singer or scientific genius without the resources at my disposal to guide his/her little mind! So, prudently, I waited for just the right man -- a combination of tired resignation and a willingness to stand by me as we watched our little future princess grow, and grow and GROW ... Well, as I might have mentioned, she's now Assistant Manager at a Save-A-Lot in Atlanta. I'm so proud! I even have a photo from that wonderful day when she got promoted.
But back to me and my clam problems. Yes, it's now dry as stall shavings and hardly remembers when it would drip like honey on a hot Georgia afternoon (instead of from the fridge). I swear, it would slide down these California Redwood legs so fast that if you walked up behind me, you'd slide down on the lino.
Well, later folks. I like to slither in after my topix tormenters are off doing other things. I seem to have some kind of radar for that. I'll just close by saying I'm worried, so you should be too. And if not, why not?
Deaf ears there....

Putin Orders Massive Strike Against Saudi Arabia If West Attacks Syria
A grim “urgent action memorandum” issued today from the office of President Putin to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ordering a “massive military strike” against Saudi Arabia in the event that the West attacks Syria.

According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympics scheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

Lebanese newspaper As-Safir confirmed this amazing threat against Russia saying that Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord by stating:“I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”

Prince Bandar went on to say that Chechens operating in Syria were a pressure tool that could be switched on an off.“These groups do not scare us. We use them in the face of the Syrian regime but they will have no role in Syria’s political future.”

London’s The Telegraph News Service further reported today that Saudi Arabia has secretly offered Russia a sweeping deal to control the global oil market and safeguard Russia’s gas contracts, if the Kremlin backs away from the Assad regime in Syria, an offer Putin replied to by saying “Our stance on Assad will never change. We believe that the Syrian regime is the best speaker on behalf of the Syrian people, and not those liver eaters”[Putin said referring to footage showing a Jihadist rebel eating the heart and liver of a Syrian soldier HERE], and which Prince Bandar in turn warned that there can be “no escape from the military option” if Russia declines the olive branch.

Critical to note, and as we had previously reported on in our 28 January 2013 report “Obama Plan For World War III Stuns Russia,” the Federal Security Services (FSB) confirmed the validity of the released hacked emails of the British based defence company, Britam Defence that stunningly warned the Obama regime was preparing to unleash a series of attacks against both Syria and Iran in a move Russian intelligence experts warned could very well cause World War III.

According to this FSB report, Britam Defence, one of the largest private mercenary forces in the world, was the target of a “massive hack” of its computer files by an “unknown state sponsored entity” this past January who then released a number of critical emails between its top two executives, founder Philip Doughty and his Business Development Director David Goulding.

He wasn't. You probably saw this picture and bought into the JJJackass mantra.


http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/apr/03/...

This famous picture is from the day before MLK was assassinated. Quit trying to change history.

"at the moment King was shot, Jackson was actually in a nearby parking lot talking to a group of musicians. Kenneth Timmerman describes what happened next:

“When the shots rang out, he [Jackson] fled and hid behind the swimming pool area and reappeared 20-30 minutes later when the television cameras arrived on the scene. That’s when Jesse Jackson told other Southern Christian Leadership Conference staffers,‘Don’t you talk to the press, whatever you do.’... Nobody had given him that job. He took that job. Call it ‘entrepreneurial instinct’ if you wish, but on the spot he realized that he had an opportunity to spin the events to create his own persona and create a possibility for him to become a leader in the black movement. He had no prospects at that point.”

The next morning, Jackson flew to Chicago to make a guest appearance on the NBC Today Show. In the few hours that had passed between the King assassination and Jackson’s flight to the Windy City, Jackson had already hired a public-relations agent to accompany him as he was transported from interview to interview in a chauffeur-driven car. Before a national television audience on the Today Show, Jackson donned a shirt that he claimed was smeared with the dying Dr. King’s blood.“He died in my arms,” Jackson lied."
