Okay, I'm going to have to put a smackdown on you if you don't continue to be led around by the nose. This is fair warning.
Remember how you once said Realtime knew you for years and could verify that you were a nurse and teacher??

Ah, I remember it well!!

And then he said you were lying about all of it, you never were anything but a work from home envelope stuffer.

Funny, ever since he called you out as a liar, you've been angry with him!!

You lie as much and as badly as your buddy Dweeb.

It's a real Teabag thing.

Do you have auto insurance? How many accidents have you had? Insurance is just that.... a guarantee of compensation should you need it. Everyone should jump for joy if the benefits they collect don't reach (or exceed) their investment into their health. That's a good thing and IMO, 18-30 year olds are smart enough to realize it..even if you aren't.
there are tax implications that result in a net loss to the employee....

auto insurance is not mandatory in many states, just proof of financial responsibility...besides, the statutory limits on auto insurance are so low that minimum coverage is essentially worthless...

In case you missed this....
The so-called "African" Americans bear no resemblance to real Africans. In Africa you won't see an entire culture of single mothers with children whose father abandoned them as a characteristic of the traditional culture they established here.
In Africa, the so-called "African" American would be the lowest of the low, having the lowest status and respect in any African village or culture.
Please stop referring to yourself as "African" American. It's very insulting to real Africans.
Your racism remains intact. That's all you ever were.

""Romney would protect oil companies’$4 billion in annual taxpayer-funded subsidies, despite record profits:

Romney:“I don’t want to raise taxes on oil companies.” In response to the ads that the Obama Campaign and Priorities USA Action were running, which criticized Romney's support for tax breaks for oil companies, Romney said at a townhall meeting, "[Obama] blames me for the high price of gasoline because I don’t want to raise taxes on oil companies. I don’t like raising taxes on anybody." He then said that the President's proposal to eliminate oil subsides is part of a “dangerous” strategy to “divide America.”[Romney Townhall in Delaware, 4/10/12]""

It sure does seem that way. Then again, he's only speaking to his fellow liberals. Which explains it.

What's even scarier is seemingly intelligent people who sound the same.

A leader is supposed to do whatever is necessary to assuage any fears among the people...not incite them for political gain.

Did someone say Oil Subsidies??
""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.""
Caught you in your lies again, Dweeb!!
"exemptions from price controls and higher-than-average rates of return allowed on oil pipelines" is not a subsidy, you fucking moron.

Let's take a closer look at your ... "information"....

"exemptions from price controls"
Would this be government controls of the price charged in the private market place, or controls placed on government contracts?
For control of private market price fixing, we have anti-trust laws, moron.
For controls in government contracting, we have FAR, moron.

And, what law was ever passed that prevented any company from making a higher than average return? How the fuck do you think the average was calculated?

Your reference seems to be as ignorant as you.

So, you still haven't been able to identify not even one subsidy paid to any oil company.
Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.

Tea Party Grew From "Imperial White House"

The tea party represents a significant percent of the voting population, and for the media to treat it like "some kind of disease" is unfair, billionaire entrepreneur Sam Zell told CNBC on Tuesday.

"The tea party is a reaction to an imperial White House," Zell said in a "Squawk Box" interview.

"The idea that they are treated as though they are crazy is ridiculous, and not very representative of a democratic society."

No need to sign a petition. Just keep waving your sign. Everyone sees it. Including Obama.

Boehner wanted a "conversation" and got just what he asked for....plus a middle-finger salute...
"According to a CNN survey of members of the House, and contrary to what Speaker Boehner said yesterday, there are enough votes in that chamber to end the shutdown. Of course, we're talking a small minority of Republicans voting with all the Democrats, but there it is."..."A friend asks, "How'd you like to be John Boehner right now?"

Clearly, I'm daydreaming, but I'd like it. Because I'd stride to the podium, whack the gavel, and say:
So, in contrast to our filibustering friends in the other chamber, let majority rule in the people's House as we decide whether this shutdown ends now or we continue to hold fast until the president and his allies yield.

That may not be the best strategy for my personal, narrow interests. I may even lose my speakership. Maybe I will be "primaried." But it is what my country needs of me at this moment, and that it what matters most."
And if those Tea Partiers cut you loose, latte on me at the Starbucks of your choice. Have you tried the Pumpkin Spice? Yum!" If I Were John... http://huff.to/19eMcqo via @HuffPostPol

There are worse places for John Boehner to wind up in then having coffee with Jared Bernstein at Starbucks. lol
