Obama identified himself as black but he is really biracial. He is both white and black.

When those in the ObamaKKKare exchanges show up at the doctor's office and don't pay the $45 copay, they will be politely turned away.
The exchanges don't have anything to do with Medicaid moron. And since when haven't insurance policies had co-pays moron? The difference with the ACA is that preventative care or "wellness visits" have no co-pays.
You're an idiot Galt!

Home Depot Dumps Part-Time Employees on Exchanges and Raises Premiums for Others, Both Because of ObamaKKKare
On Thursday, Home Depot became yet another company that announced it would shift part-time workers to the government-run healthcare exchanges. In addition, a company spokesperson conceded that full-time employees, though they will still get health benefits, would pay more due to an increase in costs next year.
Companies like Trader Joe's and Walgreens have made similar announcements before the Obamacare exchanges are set to open in October.
According to a company spokesperson, "Home Depot's change would affect roughly 20,000 part-time workers who previously had chosen the limited liability medical plan the company offered," which, as Reuters notes, companies can no longer offer after December 31 under Obamacare.
Home Depot's current plan for part-time workers "provided coverage of up to $20,000 depending on the plan and were administered by Aetna Inc."
Galt thinks all increases in Premiums are due to Obamacare. I wonder who he blames for the increases the previous 20 years?

Why don't you quote stats from the NRA?
Any nut can find another nut to support their worldview. Just go down to Joe's Bar on a slow Weds. nite and listen.
Hell, visit any Liberal propaganda website anytime and read the lies.
So, are you saying no NRA member had their gun used in an accidental shooting?

a telegram to various SD and Gestapo offices, helping to coordinate the program with the SS, SD, Gestapo, uniformed police (Orpo), SA, Nazi party officials, and even the fire departments. It talks about permitting arson and destroying businesses and synagogues, and orders the confiscation of all "archival material" out of community centres and synagogues. The telegram ordered that "as many particularly affluent – are to be arrested in all districts as can be accommodated in existing detention facilities ... Immediately after the arrests have been carried out, the appropriate concentration camps should be contacted to be place into camps as quickly as possible. "Twenty-thousand sent to a concentration camp in the days immediately following; consider the beginning of the Holocaust.

NRA News Issues Correction For Report Blaming Bill Clinton For Navy Yard Shooting

NRA News host Cam Edwards issued a correction the day after after 's A.W.R. Hawkins claimed on his show that the mass shooting at Washington Navy Yard "happened because Bill Clinton mandated that" military bases "be gun-free zones." In truth, the policy cited by Hawkins to support this claim allows guns to be carried on military bases under a substantial number of circumstances and was actually enacted during the George H.W. Bush administration.

The myth that a Clinton-era policy was responsible for the shooting, which claimed the lives of 12 victims, was the centerpiece of right-wing media's failed attempt to establish that the Navy Yard shooting took place in a "gun-free zone."

The premiums will be paid by us through the exchanges. It's just another redistribution of wealth welfare scheme. It will fail under it's own weight.

The Rogue: The Real Search for Sarah Palin:
A new book by Joe McGinnis due out next week:
States Sarah Palin hunted more than moose in Alaska.
The book claims she and hoops star Glen Rice had a bizarre NRA-meets-NBA one night stand and she also smoked pot with a college professor and snorted coke on a snow-billing trip.
No response from the Palin camp.
Glen Rice did not return calls for comment although he confirmed the romance to McGinnis.
And to think the Repuglican thugs tried to make that hussy VP. Such morals and high standards Republican extremists hold themselves to. Not to mention he affair with her husbands business partner in the 90's. Todd wonders what happened to their intimacy. LOL. I suppose McCain borrowed Viagra from Rush Limbaugh and nailed her also. LOL.

As often happens when tragedy strikes in America, particularly in the shooting spree genre, we have noticed a thing that also happens. We have noticed that the right-wing gun fetish mythical meme machine is way fast and way good at coming out with reasons that gun-control is of course always to blame and the only reason anyone gets killed in shooting sprees at all is because they didn’t have their own gun at the ready. Because if everyone always had a gun, in their hand at all times we guess, someone showing up at your work or school or movie theater, and full on sneak-attack unloading an automatic weapon at you and your co-workers, or students, or fellow theater goers, would be no prob. That’s just common sense. And this week’s funtimes tragedy at the DC naval yard was just another time when the unarmed were overtaken. So, who to blame? Why, it’s Bill Clinton, of course!

It hasn’t always been the case that only MPs can carry firearms on U.S. military bases. A mere twenty years ago,“gun free zones” made their way to these facilities under the watch of President Bill Clinton.

According to a Washington Times editorial written days after the Nov. 5, 2009, attack on soldiers at Fort Hood, one of Clinton’s first acts upon taking office… was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases.

Hmmm, one of his “first” acts you say? When would that be, Washington Times? Oh here it is, March 12, 1993, a mere 50 days after President Clinton was sworn into office for the first time. Damn that guy was fast! He must have had a massive hard on for those military people’s guns, and luckily, the congress Clinton had to work with was always on his side and did everything he said immediately. Or not, maybe?

No, not even maybe. In the real world where Breitbart et al are almost always wrong, especially about history, all President Clinton did was happen to be the president when a directive of the Department of Defense that had been put into place in February of 1992 was legally enacted. This little directive here, which we found our ownselves by finger punching the information box (a lot) has on its fourth page something about how carrying your gun on a military base is a big old no-no, because the Department of Defense does not want for you to. The Department of Defense. In 1992, when George Herbert Walker Bush was the president. Not Bill Clinton, who in 1992 was still in Arkansas banging that Paula Jones chick, and calling himself “The Comeback Kid”(yeah he is) for winning the New Hampshire primary. It was also not gun control advocates. It was not anyone but the military, all being the boss of themselves.

But whatever, because this lie of an explanation for why a man who should have never had a gun in the first place shot and killed all those people yesterday, is now all the reason we need for why this happened. Bill Clinton came for their guns, and left the military unarmed, and gun control sucks and makes shooting sprees happen, even when it doesn’t. As that dead guy Mark Twain said, probably before the internet was even invented,“a lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth gets its shoes on.” And all this is here is a big fat lie. But do not let that stop you crazy people from being so good at being wrong, blaming a Democrat and gun control, and telling the military what to do. Because what the hell does the military know about guns and defense anyway?

Obama puts together his team for
chief of the renamed security service—the (USSS)
Obama's counterintelligence service grew into an effective machine of terror and intimidation. With Obama striving for absolute power in U.S.
Obama wished to control the political police forces of all 56 U.S. states. They began with C.A. and N.Y. Obama gathered some of his men from the (USSS) and together they stormed congress headquarters in the capital and took over the congress using intimidation tactics. Obama became the commander of Department IV, the political police.
