All you have to do is look at social democracies in Europe who eventually elected conservatives to fix the problems.
And how Obama is taking down the same path they turned away from.
And yet, no one can show one and follow it up.

Just words and opinions being mistaken for facts.

SNAFU.

"GOP leaders confounded on stopgap spending bill
Email this Story

Sep 12, 8:17 PM (ET)

By ANDREW TAYLOR

WASHINGTON (AP)- GOP leaders eager to avoid blame for a possible government shutdown next month appear confounded by conservatives' passion for using fast-approaching deadlines to derail the implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, conceded Thursday his plan was all but dead for quickly passing a temporary spending bill that also defunds Obamacare, make the Senate vote on each idea separately and then send only the portion for keeping the government open to the White House for the president's signature.

Meanwhile, new freelance effort by rank-and-file Republicans to condition keeping the government open or preventing a debt ceiling default on delaying Obamacare for a year hit a brick wall of opposition from Democrats vowing to never let the health care law be delayed or unraveled.

Nonetheless, some Republicans floated the idea of postponing all of the unimplemented portions of the new law for a year - including a requirement that virtually everyone buys health insurance and with new tax subsidies to help many people pay for it - in exchange for raising the government's borrowing cap and easing tens of billions of dollars in broad, automatic spending cuts.

"Let's give them something and then we get something in exchange," Rep. John Fleming, R-La., said. "We give the administration the debt ceiling increase they want. We give them maybe some sequestration dollars that they would like to have. And in exchange we delay Obamacare, which I think the president should want.... He's already delayed big chunks of it. It's not ready for implementation."..."

We're finding out that eliminating diseases like this or polio or smallpox and malaria are more difficult than we realized. Travel is common, diseases easy to pick up when traveling to other countries.
As proven by the recent outbreak, the spread of these things can be truly amazing and scary. I think it's a good thing for your kids to get protected.
When I hear of people who reject modern vaccines, I picture primitive native groups somewhere who fear the shots are to sterilize them or poison them or steal their souls or something. I think some muslim groups do this, and some Christian groups do it.
In this world, there's too many things out there trying to kill you. If you can eliminate the threat of some of them, why not? Esp. those that have a true danger to long term health for children. The diseases that have haunted man forever.
Those disease have not been eliminated.

It's not a matter of supporting and agreeing with the opposition once you're in power, it's knowing how to compromise.
That hasn't happened since 2009.

The best way to flunk a job interview is to ask how much the job pays.
No kidding... and to put down how much you expect to get paid. Always the answer was:'your best offer'. You can't believe what these people fill in the blank with these days. They have no clue. And didn't their parents teach them what to wear to job interview. I am embarrassed for many of them. As far as they way they dress I must assume they are looking for a hooker job.

Community in Turmoil after Teachers Support Convicted Child Molester

Rose City— This tiny farm town in northern Michigan has risen up against a school board member and six teachers.

Longtime friends no longer talk to them. They’ve been blasted by a judge, criticized by the local newspaper and mocked in public meetings.

Residents are trying to recall board member Mike Eagan, and the board is contemplating firing the teachers.

Their offense: supporting a friend convicted of having sex with an eighth-grade student. When middle school teacher Neal Erickson was sentenced last month, Eagan sat in court with Erickson’s family. The six teachers wrote letters of support to the judge.

The case has split the close-knit community, threatened the future of the school district and forced residents to re-examine long-held beliefs.

“This case has taken on a life of its own,” said Mike Juarez, a West Branch attorney who represented Erickson.

Residents say they will pull their children from the West Branch-Rose City Area School District if the teachers aren’t fired. But the board isn’t sure the letter-writing is grounds for dismissal.
