You avoid the truth like it's poison.
The occupation of Lithuania by Nazi Germany lasted from the German invasion of Soviet Union to the end of the Battle of Memel (June 22, 1941 to January 28, 1945). At first the Germans were welcomed as "liberators" from the repressive Soviet regime which occupied Lithuania prior to the German arrival. In hopes of re-establishing independence or regaining some autonomy, Lithuanians organized their Provisional Government. Soon the Lithuanian attitudes towards the Germans changed into passive resistance."
"Before the Holocaust, Lithuania was home to about 210,000 or 250,000 Jews and was one of the greatest centers of Jewish theology, philosophy, and learning which preceded even the times of the Gaon of Vilna. The Holocaust in Lithuania can be divided into three stages: mass executions (June–December 1941), ghetto period (1942 – March 1943), and final liquidation (April 1943 – July 1944).
Unlike in other Nazi-occupied countries where the Holocaust was introduced gradually (first limiting Jewish civil rights, then concentrating Jews in ghettos, and only then executing them in death camps), executions in Lithuania started on the first days of war. According to German documents, on June 25–26, 1941, "about 1,500 Jews were eliminated by Lithuanian partisans. Many Jewish synagogues were set on fire; on the following nights another 2,300 were killed." The executions were carried out by three main groups: in Kaunas (Ninth Fort), in Vilnius (Ponary massacre), and in countryside (Rollkommando Hamann). It is estimated that 80% of the Lithuanian Jews were killed before 1942.""
----------
Your bullshit doesn't line up with history. The Nazi's wiped out Lithuania's Jews, with the help of Lithuanian Christian Partisans. The local Christians in Europe, like Poland and the rest, were eager helpers in killing the Jews.
What about the Hotel? you don't want to continue your lie there? So what is your point anyway? you are one of those Jew and Israel haters just like usm1680moslemlover and her husband yeah, the brain dead one with a pacemaker? Got it. You all can kibitz among yourselves. Useless.

but what they are offering isnt the affordable health care that Obama was promising. about $200 a month with a $1300 deductable. can you imagine some young person who makes $12 an hour, with a car payment, school loans, as well as all the typical domestic bills? this shˇt is a mess. most americans dont want socialized healthcare, and its being forced. i cant wait til this marxist is out of office. maybe someone else will be able to do some sort of damage control
The ACA may be a lot of things, but affordable is NOT one of them.

FYI

87% of government is still open.

The only things that are closed are those the admin's OMB has declared non-essential.

Well humour cuts to the chase in a very direct way. Nothing like displaying the truth and talking about the absurdity of it. That's where the laughs are, and dip$hits like Hannity and co are the biggest laughs of all. Fox news is a comedians gift that keeps on giving, the source of laughter all around the world.

And that's why they're called 'entitlements'.
Many people like you think they'd be better off if they hadn't paid into the system.
Based on the number of older people surviving on Social Security alone, this disproves just how competent the average person is in planning for their later years.
If left to most, it's about later. I'll do it later. Then a bad economy, a job loss, an illness, and suddenly Social Security is your lifeline.
Though most of you deny it, it's all about I'll get mine now, and the younger ones will get screwed with the bill for me but no benefits for them.
You're a real patriot, fer sure.
Shouldn't worry too much about SS not being there for you. PDupont says the government is managing it just fine.

And it was your party's idea in the first place.

Can't help it if my generation's working tax dollars paid for the retirements of the generation before ours.

But your generation is most likely screwed because reform isn't in your party's dictionary.

Gee, that's what you said when Obama ran against Rmoney. You are a good contrary indicator, that's for sure.
No, actually I thought the majority still had a brain.

But the majority, unfortunately, still had visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads.

A lot of them now realize Obama really isn't Santa Claus and Obamacare is getting coal in their stockings.

Obama wants this shutdown. It's the reason he's digging in his heels and relishing it.

Unfortunately, he can't refuse to negotiate on the debt ceiling that's right around the corner.

Even though I understand the implications of letting Obama and the Democrats have complete ownership of Obamacare because it will be much more difficult putting the cat back into the bag once it's been let out, a big part of me still wants Republicans to say to Obama and Reid, "It's all yours now."

They tried.

The taxpayer-funded federal health-insurance subsidies dispensed to those on Congress’s payroll — which now range from $5,000 to $11,000 a year — would have had ended had not Obama used the quiet of the August recess to personally order the Office of Personnel Management, which supervises federal employment issues, to interpret the law so as to retain the generous congressional benefits.
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/358550/...
A Senate source said polling data shows there is strong public support for requiring congressional members and staff to receive the same treatment under the healthcare law as all other citizens.
Reid said no way, Hosea.
You IDIOT!!! THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS AND STAFF ARE NOT RECEIVING THE SAME TREATMENT UNDER THE HEALTHCARE LAW AS ALL OTHER CITIZENS!!!!! THEIR RIGHTS HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM. By being singled out and being FORCED to leave their insurance plan and join the exchanges they are being treated differently than everyone else. Why can't you see that?

The exchanges are for those with low incomes and preexisting conditions...just exactly how do you suppose members and their staff are going to qualify for subsidies? Their not. To be fair, it is only right that they be allowed to keep their employer contribution to their health care. Anything else is assine.
