Folks... there are facts in this world. They are not that hard to find. Neither party is totally comprised of morons - although there are plenty to be found in both parties.
Obama is not the Anti-Christ that Limbaugh/Beck/Fox News tell you about every day. PLEASE>>> for once... think for yourself. Go outside your normal conservative outlets for information.
THEN.... make up your own mind!!!!!!
People like Thomas Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Hamilton, etc educate themselves. They did not listen to Fox and then "carry the message".
You need to ask yourself - are you a freethinking, informed American,,, or a pawn? And, think about it, how often do "pawns" know that they are pawns?
There are two clear sides now.

You're either on the side of government having more power over the people - a socialist state.

Or you're on the side of the people having the power over the government - a Republic.

Pick one. There is no middle ground. Jefferson, Madison and Washington would call it a no-brainer. So don't evoke the Founders when posting this mamby-pamby garbage.

Ask the skyrocketing number of part-time workers and the growing number of full-time workers cut back to part-time directly because of Obamacare if they need to "wait and see" if it's a disaster.
Then ask the growing number of people who are finding out their premiums are twice what they were once paying for health insurance if they need to "wait and see" if it's a disaster.
I'll let you in on something the majority already know. It's a disaster.
You just can't help yourself. Always parroting reich wing propaganda.

There is no "skyrocketing number of part-time workers" tied to Obamacare.

Here's the list....how many Full-time workers do you see cut to part-time?

And, no one is being forced to join the exchange. If they have insurance now and it is cheaper...keep it. The exchange obviously isn't for them. Geez

So here is my take away from tonight... this is just a "bitch session" and place to call names. Not one of you have put forth one idea even comment such as:
"I don't like Obama because he has ????". All I hear is that I am a dumb%&**&, an idoit, clueless, etc.
Have you guys really thought this out... or are you just singing a song you heard on Fox News?
I REALLY wish there were people here who could actually discuss and debate real ideas and political policies.... guess I'm in the wrong place and will move along.
But you guy's need to understand that you are not contributing to anything substantial by trading insults. As long as the poor people are kept ignorant and arguing with each other ... the rich are safe and we will continue to be slaves to the corporations.
I sincerely hope things turn out well for you folks... but I fear they will not. The middle class is slowly being destroyed and you are being told that this is a good thing. Yet!!!... you believe it.... very sad.
I don't like Obama because he is a narcissistic, egocentric, self-absorbed, power hungry, one-party system Marxist who is disconnected from any concept of leadership and the American people and has no other desire than to have complete and total control over us in the name of big government and a nanny state.

And he thanks you for being so gullible, I'm quite sure.

New 'deadline' for fixing Obamacare glitches seen in mid-November

The U.S. administration has a little over a month to fix the technology problems crippling its online health insurance marketplace, or jeopardize the goal of signing up millions of Americans in time for benefits under President Barack Obama's healthcare law, experts said on Thursday.

Seymour does not like your name calling.

Why did you screw up the link addy? I corrected it above and re-linked below.

Maybe you need to look at the list-there is plenty of examples of job cuts.

Better yet when the BLS is up again look at the increasing percentage of part time jobs.

Where's the polls on that entire website asking the same questions about Democrats and Obama?

Obama's approval has dropped to 37%. Where was that noted on that website?

An Associated Press-GfK survey found that just 5% approve of the job being done by senators and representatives.

That would be both parties in Congress.

53% disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling his job.

If you don't accept biology, geology or archeology you don't accept science. Its an all or nothing proposition. Therefore, you need to eschew cable TV, the internet, antibiotics, and defibrillators.
Now go die you moronic evangelical "christians" and get the fck out of MY government!
Well, of course that's how you see it. You obviously picked the side of government having power over us. That would make you a liberaltarian socialist.

So tell us something we don't know already.

What’s Behind the Increase in Part-Time Work?

Part-time work spiked during the recent recession and has stayed stubbornly high, raising concerns that elevated part-time employment represents a “new normal” in the labor market.

The share of employed individuals working part time rose from about 17% in 2007 just before the recession to nearly 20% in 2009 and stayed near that level through mid-2013.

Temp work is way up, too.

A glitch is a short-lived fault in a system. It is often used to describe a transient fault that corrects itself, and is therefore difficult to troubleshoot.

That doesn't even come close to describing the problems with ObamaKKKare.

We have had 17 shutdowns the last 30 years. But only Obama has locked veterans out of military cemeteries.
