i guess if Bush hadn't been so worried about getting any old warm body into a military uniform so he could send them to Iraq to die a lonely death we wouldn't even be talking about that guy.
WE have had no draft for decades, so do you think someone forged his name. Is that what you are saying? are you saying the black guy was too stupid to sign up himself? shame on you.

<quoted text>There are a lot of crash-and-burn stories in Silicon Valley.
Fisker Automotive spent over a billion dollars, took down a government loan and ultimately delivered about 2,000 cars, a small fraction of what it originally promised. Fisker--In the months and years that followed, the company spiraled downward, burning its dreams and reputation to the ground — just like faulty parts did to its cars. Fisker has been reported to be on the brink of bankruptcy, lawsuits are piling up, and a government hearing is reportedly in the works. The whole industry blew up. I suggest if you can find a used one, clamour on to it.
No no no. You said cars blew up.

Are you running from that now? Just asking.

By the way, are these people being told the real cost of the insurance...so that they know how much they will owe the government if they lied about their income?

Not relevant.

You argued that the debt under Reagan was OK because it somehow helped fight the cold war.

I thought you hated debt.

Why is debt OK to fight the cold war but not to help millions of Americans caught up in an economic disaster?

The taxpayers are paying the real premium.
The customer premium/cost whatever__about one half of Florida's 3.5 million uninsured could qualify for a silver plan through the ACA exchange for about $100 per month.

The story is appearing today in newspapers throughout Florida and apparently is also being broadcast in CA on KTLA.

Michigan Says Its Same-Sex Marriage Ban Helps Boost Population Growth
Without the ability to regulate sexual relationships, how can a state survive?
It's a slippery slope. First, a state allows same-sex couples to wed. Next, the state loses the ability to monitor sexual conduct, everyone stops having babies, and the state becomes a veritable ghost town.
That may sound a bit crazy, but it's roughly the defense that lawyers representing the state of Michigan are making as part of a case alleging that a law banning same-sex adoptions is unconstitutional. Attorneys for Michigan state and Gov. Rick Snyder say the state's constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman is vital and that, without it, the state wouldn't be able to "regulate sexual relationships." Which would, you know, lead to nobody having sexual relationships anymore, and then the population declines.
In the attorneys' words, as filed in a recent motion:
One of the paramount purposes of marriage in Michigan—and at least 37 other states that define marriage as a union between a man and a woman—is, and has always been, to regulate sexual relationships between men and women....

Republicans on Obama care:

OMG OMG OMG Subsidizing policies OMG OMG subsidies are Welfare!!!""" OMG OMG Exchanges won't work!!! OMG OMG.

Republicans now want to defund Obamacare & replace it.

"Under the proposal endorsed by the 175-member Republican Study Committee, Americans who purchase coverage through state-run exchanges can claim a $7,500 deduction against their income and payroll taxes, regardless of the cost of the insurance. Families could deduct $20,000."

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/09/18/ho...

1) State run exchanges - ummmmm where did that come from?

2) Income tax & PAYROLL Tax deductions. Isn't this like subsidizing the purchase of insurance?

3) Convolution incorporated here. A family of 4 with two parents working & yet does not make enough to currently pay income tax gets NOTHING. What good is a deduction if you are not currently paying taxes?

4) Are we now reducing funding of SS & Medicare? WTF is this payroll tax deduction?

Republicans pissed & moaned about this crap & now find lots of Obamacare they like.

Republicans officially go off the deep end. Wasting all this time & money in Congress fighting a bill they ultimate;y like while doping nothing to help us recover.

Republicans are dumber than sh&*t.

They also discussed upping the funding of the High Risk Pool but decided they did not want Obamacare to look good.
