Oh that's right, according to your personal constitution you can pay for my "Obamacare"? You just go and do it. Since I don't need "Obamacare" I can pay for my own medical care, You can't, too bad. You meet your demise on your own.

It was a terrorist attack as Obama noted. But what spawned that attack?
It was a planned attack on the anniversary of 9/11, you unbelievable brainwashed liberal.

How would it look for this president if had to admit that right before an election and didn't have the dad-blamed video to blame?

He put winning an election over being truthful!

Yes, it has to be a sense of relief not having the burdens of the world on your shoulders and having the convictions to do the right thing in spite of being crucified in the press and called a terrorist by those who you're protecting in your own country.
Obama won't know that feeling for another three and a half years. It's just now starting to heat up for him. But at least his precious darlings in the media will make it as painless as possible for him. Look at what he's gotten away with so far.
His handlers just sprinkle some extra powder in his hair when the heat gets too hot. And then he just washes it out when the occasion calls for him to look like a cool celebrity president. Have you noticed how his hair grays only off and on? Others have.
Let us know when you figure out the 'right' thing son.

Samuel L. Jackson Talks Poor Black Grammar, Obama’s Phony Accent, And Saying “N***a” With Playboy
On President Obama consciously dropping gs off the ends of words to sound like Joe Average:“First of all, we know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to ‘relate.’ Be a leader. Be (effing) presidential. Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘It ain’t’ or ‘What it be’ to my friends. But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family what cared about me, who has a well-read background, I (effing) conjugate.”

Poor Obama. He really thought the UN had any purpose. He actually admonished them the other day when speaking about Syria and chemical weapons and their purpose for existing if nothing was done. After sounding like a real leader and stating with shocking conviction that the world cannot sit by and let this happen, he basically said in the very next sentence that if the UN didn't give him permission by leading the charge, he was going to go home and America wouldn't play with them anymore.

I'm sure THAT got them to thinking...especially since they haven't lifted a finger in any global crisis for the past five decades. Obama probably should have done his homework first. At least he admonished them. Had to give him that.

It certainly remains true that the business conditions for the country are going to remain uncertain for sometime. Even today we discovered a brand-new "glitch" to Obamacare.

Congress in their haste to pass a bill that they didn't even bother reading, made sure that the subsidies offered to individuals who's companies did not provide health plans don't necessarily translate to family coverage.

From USAToday:

Congress defined "affordable" as 9.5% or less of an employee's household income, mostly to make sure people did not leave their workplace plans for subsidized coverage through the exchanges. But the "error" was that it only applies to the employee — and not his or her family. So, if an employer offers a woman affordable insurance, but doesn't provide it for her family, they cannot get subsidized help through the state health exchanges.

That can make a huge difference; the Kaiser Family Foundation said an average plan for an individual is about $5,600, but it goes up to $15,700 for families. Most employers help out with those costs, but not all.

"We saw this two-and-a-half years ago and thought,'Has anyone else noticed this?'" said Kosali Simon, a professor of public affairs at Indiana University who specializes in health economics. "Everyone said,'No, no. You must be wrong.' But we weren't, and that's going to leave a lot of people out."

The issue has recently received attention, especially after former president Bill Clinton highlighted it in a recent speech.

"The family glitch is definitely a drafting error that Congress made that needs to be fixed," said Joan Alker, executive director of the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families. "But that seems unlikely."

Congress made a lot of drafting errors when it comes to Obamacare. 2,900 pages of them.

Warren Buffett may not have said that we should scrap Obamacare and start over. But if he didn't, he should've. Just goes to show you that while he may be a whiz when it comes to stock investments, he knows nothing about practicing medicine.

Why is it that Americans believe that people who are accomplished in one area of life, are Gnostics about areas they seem to know nothing about? Warren Buffett is not a political genius, nor is Will Ferrell, nor is Jon Stewart, nor was Albert Einstein. Or Jane Fonda, or Barbra Streisand. Frankly my next-door neighbor, "Al", who is a computer technician, knows more about politics than anyone of them.

Yet if I saw the headline Albert So-And-So Thinks Obamacare is Just Nifty! I'd break out and hysterical laughter.

Thank you Samuel L Jackson On the one thing he won’t do onscreen, even for Quentin Tarantino:“Probably dress up as a woman and kiss another guy. I don’t think people want to see me do that. He hasn’t asked me, but you know what? If it’s done right and the story is good, I might.”Liberals do not run All Black Peoples Minds

doubled?
i don't believe what right wing Israelis say any more than i do what you say. or did Iran just admit to doubling it? or is someone just guessing?
Gee, I didn't know that the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) consisted of right wing Israelis.

Obama's first sanction July 1, 2010.

IEAE reports:

In August 2010, the IAEA said Iran has started using a second set of 164 centrifuges linked in a cascade, or string of machines, to enrich uranium to up to 20% at its Natanz pilot fuel enrichment plan.

In February 2012 the IAEA report also described progress in Iran's enrichment and fuel fabrication efforts, including a tripling of the number of cascades enriching uranium.

In August 2012 the IAEA released a report showing a major expansion of Iranian enrichment activities. The report said that Iran has more than doubled the number of centrifuges at the underground facility at Fordow, from 1,064 centrifuges in May to 2,140 centrifuges in August.

In November 2012 the IAEA released a report showing continued expansion in Iranian uranium enrichment capabilities. At Fordow, all 2784 IR-1 centrifuges (16 cascades of 174 each) have been installed, though only 4 cascades are operating and another 4 are fully equipped, vacuum-tested, and ready to begin operating.

In February 2013 the IAEA released a report showing continued expansion in Iranian uranium enrichment capabilities. As of 19 February, 12,699 IR-1 centrifuges have been installed at Natanz. This includes the installation of 2,255 centrifuges since the previous IAEA report in November

In May 2013 the IAEA reported Iran had installed close to 700 high-tech centrifuges used for uranium enrichment, which can produce the core of nuclear weapons. It also said Tehran had added hundreds of older-generation machines at its main enrichment site to bring the total number to more than 13,000.

In August 2013 the IAEA reported Iran had added 300 more of its advanced centrifuges since the last report in May, for a total of 1,008, and had put all of them under vacuum. The report also said Iran had installed more of its older-generation centrifuges to bring up their number to more than 15,000, with most of them running.

Bear in mind these IAEA reports are based on what the Iranians allow the inspectors to see. I'm no expert on enrichment but saying they have doubled their capabilities is really lowballing it!!!
