Looks like Eman will hit 26,000 posts tonight! At 30 seconds a post this works out to 216 hours! This no-life loser will have spent almost six 40 hour weeks whining about how Obama has ruined his miserable life.
Go figure.

"The Republican Party purposefully got us into this mess, and Obama got us out the best he could. He deserves a thank you, and a pat on the back.
After years of watching him concede points to the GOP in the name of compromise and "bipartisan" negotiations, the president finally dug in his heels and refused to give an inch. The result? A resounding victory for him and his party. The Republican Party spent three weeks trying to get something, anything, out of Obama for shutting down the government and bringing the debt ceiling to the brink, but they ended up with nothing. Zilch. In the childish game of chicken that was this shutdown, the president held steady and the GOP flinched first. He stood up for his policies and his party and ceded not an inch. He finally gave his supporters a reason to be proud, instead of coming out with his tail between his legs, saying we had to give up some big things to get a little of what we wanted. Nope, this time we got exactly what we wanted."
"Let's be clear: there are no winners here," Obama said in remarks to the press the morning after he signed the legislation that reopened the government. But make no mistake: this was a victory speech. Before this, the president was great at winning elections and losing policy battles. Under his guise of compromise, the sequester cuts essentially became the standing norm for government spending. But this time he came to the table having learned something. He realized every time he gave up ground to the GOP they would only demand more. So he stopped. Every time the GOP came up with plan that included something they wanted, Obama was right there promising a veto. And lo and behold, it worked...."

No wait I'll add that__Taylor Swift is worth over one hundred million in real today dollars because why?
Jay Z has hundreds, if not thousands of employees and financial obligations that suck his net worth down to where he has to combine Beyonce's income to remain relevant.
Taylor Swift shops for antiques___while Jay Z works his ballz off for other folks.
Midnight Train to Georgia__one of the most popular songs in R&B history was written by some white dude named Jim Weatherly, Bob Seger's biggest hit, Against the Wind was written by a black dude named Maurice Williams. Neither song followed it's intended message.
Go figure.

the only thing worse than the websites are the insurance policies sold under ObamaKKKare...when people find out the details, they will revolt....
Obama will call for major changes in the program before the next election...higher taxes, lower premiums, lower deductibles, lower copays...
The only reason people might wince at the details is because they have never had insurance before and were expecting a freebie. Co-pays and deductibles are in line with off network insurance. As soon as they realize that, they will sign up. After all, most of these people are getting subsidies to offset the high premiums. That will be a non issue.

How many of you have had your insurance cancelled or raised so far?
Have any of you gone through one of the exchanges yet?
You are a prime person for identity theft. Letís make a position and just above minimum wage to people with barely a high school education. They will get you name, SSN, Date of Birth and Credit Card # or banking information.
It makes you wonder if the government wants people to be victims of identity theft. But hay most of the people using the exchanges are on the far left. Be careful what you wish for-for you might get it!
If you do online banking your name, SSN, Date of Birth and Credit Card # or banking information are already out there. The Sky is not Falling.

the copays and deductibles are much higher than employer-sponsored group insurance...and the doctors and hospitals are paid less, so have no incentive to treat ObamaKKKare patients...unless they have no other patients...

many will never see any benefit from their premiums because they will not reach the deductible...
