Coast Guard History
The Coast Guard's official history began on 4 August 1790 when the first Congress authorized the construction of ten vessels to enforce federal tariff and trade laws and to prevent smuggling. Known variously through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as the Revenue Marine and the Revenue Cutter Service, the Coast Guard expanded in size and responsibilities as the nation grew.
The service received its present name in 1915 under an act of Congress that merged the Revenue Cutter Service with the Life-Saving Service, thereby providing the nation with a single maritime service dedicated to saving life at sea and enforcing the nation's maritime laws. The Coast Guard began to maintain the country's aids to maritime navigation, including operating the nation's lighthouses, when President Franklin Roosevelt ordered the transfer of the Lighthouse Service to the Coast Guard in 1939.

To be honest I am going to be 45 in a few days. My entire life I have just over 2 years of not having insurance. The time frame between high school and the Military, I have had it ever since then.
It is called Champus Tri-Care Primary, and my insurance is accepted everywhere.
To be honest I am jaded.
I have never known life without insurance. The same cannot be said about my brothers and sisters.
This I do know The ACA aka Obama Care it is inevitable but someone will fall through the cracks. They always do and always will.
Life Sucks and we move on.

I am more interested in the government shutting down tonight.
Do you think it will happen?
If so how many days will it take for them to run out of money?
Do you really think it will hurt the US Government?

I don't see them bitching that it's discriminatory when they have to show a photo ID when applying at any apartment housing complex in America. ALL housing managers require that now, but apparently it's only unreasonable when it applies to the poor voting. Right, got it. I don't see a one time fee every 8 years for a photo I.D. or driver's license being a hardship for ANY poor American. Their phone and food is free, so wtf is so bad about proving they're legal to vote unless it's because they are up to something? IOWs, "Please turn a blind eye to my activities because I'm poor
I'm poor now and I have absolutely no problem with continuing to purchase an I.D. I don't find it insulting in the least.
It's funny how this was not a major issue until we had a president who managed to have so very many people vote multiple times for him. It's not a racial issue when a white guy gets illegal votes but when a black guy does all of a sudden his partners in crime claim discrimination when they get caught.
The race card makes cowards of civil people and they end up getting shafted for bending over to it.

Bob Woodward: Obama’s absence in shutdown talks ‘a baffling element’
In a break with conventional political wisdom, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward says that President Obama’s avoidance of talks to avert a potential government shutdown is “baffling” and could hurt him politically.
“He said he will not negotiate on the debt ceiling — a reasonable position,‘I will not be blackmailed,’ he said. But he should be talking, they should be meeting and they should be discussing this because as I think Steve Rattner showed earlier, the America economy is at stake and the president, if there is a downturn or a collapse or whatever could happen here that’s bad it’s going to be on his head,” Woodward said on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Woodward argues that history would judge Obama harshly if a shutdown occurs.

Article 4 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution -
New states may be admitted by the Congress into this union; but no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.
Doesn't matter what a bunch of country bumpkins want or did, we follow a Constitution here in the United States of America.
End of story.

No false flag at all.
There will be some of those people who typically vote that will no longer vote.
Because you erected a hurdle.
Why did you erect that hurdle?
To get those people to no longer vote.
You f*cking idiots act like we get 100% turnout on elections. We don't.
Turnout is down when the weather is bad.
You know it.
So hey, lets make people without drivers licenses & certain photo IDs get this special ID that you can only get in these special places that are few & far between and You think that won't reduce the turnout.
You're either one dumb person or a liar trying to defend political games to win elections.
Put a photo station in ever polling place. A digital camera & a laptop is all that is needed. Send the photo to the state & get a photo ID for the next election.
Why aren't Republicans doing that?

The Senate rejected House Republicans' amendments to a government funding bill in a vote of 54 to 46 on Monday.
The Senate's vote to strip the provisions that would have delayed the Obama administration's healthcare reform law for one year and repealed the medical device tax means the House is once again in the spotlight on passing a bill that funds the government.
A simple majority was needed to defeat the bill.

With a government shutdown appearing imminent Monday, a Republican congressman expressed frustration with the conservative wing of his party.
"We're pretty much out of options at this point," Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said, as quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
"They're all giddy about it," he said in reference to Republicans most unwilling to compromise. "You know who benefits the most here from a shutdown? The Democrats benefit and they know that."
Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) also admitted that Republicans will be damaged politically in the event of a government shutdown. Meanwhile, a poll released Monday showed that Americans will be more inclined to blame congressional Republicans for a shutdown than President Barack Obama.

We started Military.com in 1999 to revolutionize the way the 30 million Americans with military affinity stay connected and informed. Today, we're the largest military and veteran membership organization — 10 million members strong.
Military.com 's free membership connects servicemembers, military families and veterans to all the benefits of service — government benefits, scholarships, discounts, lifelong friends, mentors, great stories of military life or missions, and much more.
We believe that the benefits earned in the service should be easier to access and written in plain English. We're passionate about helping members make the most of military experience throughout life.
Military.com 's members are sharing stories, insider tips, news from the front lines, and unique slices of military life including the tough stuff of war.
Military.com provides headline news and technology updates since our community answers the call and makes news. We also cover the rest of the military experience — from great content like our user-generated videos in our popular "Shock and Awe" feature to our military equipment guide we present what makes the military unique (and fun).
In 2004, Military.com joined forces with Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW) to accelerate our growth and change the playing field for career and educational opportunities for servicemembers, veterans and military spouses. Monster's vision is bringing people together to advance their lives, which is a great fit with Military.com 's "members first" ethos and goal of connecting the military community to all the benefits of service.
