Now you're complaining that the government isn't providing quality enough healthcare for poor people and before poor people didn't deserve adequate healthcare insurance at all if they couldn't afford it. The Tea Party used to tell the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions denied healthcare to just go off and die .

Did I mention this??

""A 2011 study by the consulting firm Management Information Services, Inc.(MISI)[7] estimated the total historical federal SUBSIDIES for various energy sources over the years 1950-2010. The study found that oil, natural gas, and coal received $369 billion,$121 billion, and $104 billion (2010 dollars), respectively, or 70% of total energy SUBSIDIES over that period. Oil, natural gas, and coal benefitted most from percentage depletion allowances and other tax-based SUBSIDIES, but oil also benefitted heavily from regulatory SUBSIDIES such as exemptions from price controls and higher-than-average rates of return allowed on oil pipelines.""

First, there is no such thing as a Zionist Christian.
Do you even know the meaning of Zionism?? It appears not.
That's what happened when you married a gentile.
""Zionism (Hebrew: &#1510;&#1497;&#14 93;&#1504;&#1493;& #1514;&#8206;, Tsiyonut; Arabic: &#1589;&#1607;&#16 10;&#1608;&#1606;& #1610;&#1577;&#8206;, &#536;ahyouniyyah) is a form of nationalism of Jews and Jewish culture that supports a Jewish nation state in the territory defined as the Land of Israel. Zionism supports Jews upholding their Jewish identity, opposes the assimilation of Jews into other societies and has advocated the return of Jews to Israel as a means for Jews to be a majority in their own nation, and to be liberated from antisemitic discrimination, exclusion, and persecution that had historically occurred in the diaspora.""
----------
Christians cannot be Zionists, unless they desire to change religion to Judaism!! DUH
So why aren't you in Israel, if you're a Zionist?? Because your Christian husband won't go there??
You're really stupid. Give it up. I've stomped you enough for today.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I see you don't know what the different types of Zionism are either. Cut and Paste didn't work out so well for you huh? ROTFLMAO--such a ignoramus you are--cut and paste ONLY because you are too stupid to know or think on your own.
I'm more than happy here.
Thank you. You, on the other hand, seem to be incapable of common sense or logical thinking so perhaps you should just sit back in silence and let the grown-ups debate the issues with respect and civility.

The Christian Zionist Heritage Center at the Jerusalem World Center is going to help change that mistaken impression with the message that true Christians love, care for and support the Jewish people. We are going to tell the story of the amazing support that Christian Zionists have provided during the time when the Jews were scattered around the world, and especially in leading to the rebirth of Israel as a nation.

You could educate yourself-rather than trying that horrific cut and paste again.

Nope. Democrats started this drive for dependent voters via Johnson's "war" on poverty.

If children are going to bed hungry it's the fault of their guardians, not republicans, you moron.

Saw an interesting analogy by a expert Business commenter on tv. He said this reminded him of the Disney animated film Fantasia where Mickey (the Republican party) conjures up a spell that inadvertently brings on the demon broomsticks (The Tea party) and they can't be stopped. Only the sorcery can stop them and the Republicans have run out of wizards, McCain tried, even Bonehead has tried but they just keep coming & they need someone like Head Wizard Reagan but there is no-one in their ranks.

O'bama has put a new and unacceptable spin on what it means to be an American. That is a fact.

Really? I can think of at least seven reasons insurance under the Affordable Care Act is better than anything offered in the past to those with low incomes or pre-existing conditions:

1 - Requires insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing health conditions

2 - Holds insurance companies accountable for rate increases

3 - Makes it illegal for health insurance companies to arbitrarily cancel your health insurance just because you get sick

4 - Covers young adults under 26

5 - Provides free preventive care

6 - Ends lifetime and yearly dollar limits on coverage of essential health benefits

7 - Guarantees your right to appeal

Hey usm, here is a post from you--back when you had a brain...before you drank the Hoodie O'bama kook-aid. LOL
QUOTE who="USAsince1680" <quoted text>
Smoke and mirrors. The fact that people cannot be denied coverage does
not in any way mean they will be able to afford the exorbitant
premiums permitted under "Obama's" Reform bill and those "bean
counters" will be ever present.
I wish I could agree with you but I can't. The Health Reform Bill
opens too many unknowns and is far to encompassing.
For instance, some sections (SEC. 511, for example) give priority to
communities with high concentrations of "poverty", "crime", "domestic
violence", "high rates of high-school drop-outs", "substance abuse"
and "unemployment". Isn't it enough that the residents of these
communities will already receive a disproportionate amount of the
"premium credits"? I have no desire to support failed communities.
That is strictly taxation without representation.
I believe Obama is shoving this reform bill down our throats to
prevent transparency and we all need to take a step back and study the
plan before implementing it. What's the hurry? The "underrepresented"
already receive free medical care at community clinics and emergency
rooms. They will not die waiting.
The very fact that the health insurance companies are biting at the
bit to get their hands on the newly insured should give you pause for
scrutiny. Obama's bill lines the pockets of the insurance executives
while stealing from the senior citizens. This just isn't right.

ENJOYING HOPE AND CHANGE

Remember when the media rushed to talk about transparency in the Barack Obama “Hope and Change” era? Good times, good times. Leonard Downie, who once worked as the executive editor of the Washington Post and wrote a novel about Washington corruption and the Iraq War, finds a bigger and non-fictional problem in the successor to George W. Bush. Downie gives the Post a preview of his report from the Committee to Protect Journalists which outlines the Obama war on reporters and their sources:

“A memo went out from the chief of staff a year ago to White House employees and the intelligence agencies that told people to freeze and retain any e-mail, and presumably phone logs, of communications with me,” Sanger said. As a result, longtime sources no longer talk to him.“They tell me:‘David, I love you, but don’t e-mail me. Let’s don’t chat until this blows over.’&#8201;”

Sanger, who has worked for the Times in Washington for two decades, said,“This is most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

Many leak investigations include lie-detector tests for government officials with access to the information at issue.“Reporters are interviewing sources through intermediaries now,” Barr told me,“so the sources can truthfully answer on polygraphs that they didn’t talk to reporters.”

The investigations have been “a kind of slap in the face” for reporters and their sources, said Smith of the Center for Public Integrity.“It means you have to use extraordinary measures for contacts with officials speaking without authorization.”

Amusingly, Downie posits this question at the end of the essay:

Will Obama recognize that all this threatens his often-stated but unfulfilled goal of making government more transparent and accountable? None of the Washington news media veterans I talked to were optimistic.

“Whenever I’m asked what is the most manipulative and secretive administration I’ve covered, I always say it’s the one in office now,” Bob Schieffer, CBS News anchor and chief Washington correspondent, told me.“Every administration learns from the previous administration. They become more secretive and put tighter clamps on information. This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.”

Does it even occur to Downie that Obama’s claim to deliver “the most transparent administration ever”(not just incrementally more transparent than before) was simply a load of hogwash? Apparently not — because if Downie and the rest of the Obama-fawning media had to acknowledge that possibility, then they would have to ask themselves why Obama would deliberately set out to make his administration the least transparent ever, as Schieffer acknowledges.

No problem with the shut down. The sun came up this morning, it will set tonite. The shut down is no big deal. Maybe it is a good thing. The Pentagaon has recalled 350,000 workers. The house okayed a bill ensure to ensure back pay furloughed federal workers. Our military will be paid. National parks are going to reopen. And to top it off president nobama stated his concern about the NFL Washington's nickname, the Redskins. At the same tome he said nothing about FSU's nickname Seminoles or North Dakota nickname The Fighting Souix, or the University of Utah's nickname the Utes. Surprizingly he did not comment on the Yankee nick name of MLB team in New York. He also did not comment on team nicknames like; Celtics, Gaels, Fighting Irish, Hawkeyes, Tarheels all of which indicate an ethnicity. Why is the president such a phoney?
Son, you should get your head out of your fanny. Get real. Realize president nobama, the boy president is a loser.
