Obama is dithering on Syria, just like he did on General McChrystal's August 30, 2009 request for a troop surge in Afghanistan. Obama shelved the request for weeks and then was pissed off when the general went to the press revealing Obama's dithering in early October. It took until December 1.2009 for the Ditherer to announce his decision.
Now Obama gets to stall a couple more weeks on Syria and if the military response is ineffective he'll blame the Armed Services and Congress. If Congress votes no he'll be able to retreat from his Red Line (which he really wants to do)and say he had to honor their decision.
How are those Iran/Nuke talks going? Obama dithers while Iran speeds up plutonium production.
I've read that the Boy Messiah is so distressed over the global community's laughing at him that he decided to chuck it all and go golfing.

At least there he can show some balls.

Some Nevada casinos have one woman taking drink orders on an Ipad, which the waitresses then deliver, clearly to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Fast food restaurants could easily eliminate the counter personnel.

See how these idiots think.."their share of the cost".
I know what a dumbass you are but federal employees work for the government. They have a benefit package that includes health insurance.

Under their plan, the employer (government) pays about 70% of that cost & employees pay 30%..

This would work regardless of where & how the government buys these benefits -through insurance companies directly or through the exchanges.

Do you get health insurance thru your employer. What is their SHARE of those costs,. " OMG OMG OMFG Share! Share! Share! OMG OMG OMG"

ou people are pathetic.
Yeah

The Boy Messiah is probably in deep consultation at this moment with all of his Hollywood celebrity pals.

Actors know everything about military and political moves - at least in the movies.

Yes, that the order would take longer if we used the "ipad".(It wasn't an ipad). I suspect waiters don't want people using the devices for a number of reasons.

The taxpayers are providing a subsidy to the moochers.

The exchanges are primarily crappy HMOs and/or have very limited networks. Use our doctor and hospital or no coverage.

Pretty sure most Republicans want pre-existing conditions as part of their health care reform as well.
It's simply not fair or American that a significant number of people be denied medical treatment because they can't afford it.
That's been my beef from day one. The COST of health care - which the Democrats still completely ignore.
There aren't any easy solutions. But the crux of Obamacare isn't it.
Cons idea of affecting cost is tort reform.

But that's no guarantee it will reduce, let alone make health care affordable.

All it does id limit the expense if medical providers screw up.

That's been my beef since day one!

There are times when fighting fire with fire is warranted.
But gratuitous insults - especially toward women posters and even Lily - is never acceptable.
That's why you and I and every conservative should resist stooping to their level.
What possible purpose does it serve? It's just makes them look frustrated and unable to win an argument any other way.
Something you people really resist is facts.

The companies and policies on the exchanges are vastly inferior to the general marketplace. Forcing Congress and federal employees into the medical care basement is entirely appropriate.

Same for Obama.

I had a choice, higher salary or benefits package. Their "share" is actually my compensation for doing the job, its not a "share". Again, see how these idiots think? They can't do anything on their own.
