I think it will be interesting to see how Topix moderators are exposed for censoring posts with print screens of posts Topix mods censor.

They allow trash, but censor decent debate, typical leftwing thugs.

Not all of the Topix Moderators do this, but there are a couple of corrupt ones.

Hey Dong & all you other Obama voting failures. This is the way it is, poor souls, despite your misguided notions due to your frustrations:

Socialism is the Big Lie of the twentieth century. While it promised prosperity, equality, and security, it delivered poverty, misery, and tyranny. Equality was achieved only in the sense that everyone was equal in his or her misery.

In the same way that a Ponzi scheme or chain letter initially succeeds but eventually collapses, socialism may show early signs of success. But any accomplishments quickly fade as the fundamental deficiencies of central planning emerge. It is the initial illusion of success that gives government intervention its pernicious, seductive appeal. In the long run, socialism has always proven to be a formula for tyranny and misery.

A pyramid scheme is ultimately unsustainable because it is based on faulty principles. Likewise, collectivism is unsustainable in the long run because it is a flawed theory. Socialism does not work because it is not consistent with fundamental principles of human behavior. The failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores incentives.

Realtime is a typical liberal. Won't accept facts or the truth even when they're staring him in the face.

Notice when beaten and embarrassed he resorts to the old standby insult "tea party racist" and, of course, "GFY".

It really is amazing how Murdoch has made them adopt radical views without any real pressure. I can't quite put a handle on it.
Perhaps they just have very weak minds that are easily swayed by propaganda and emotional manipulation tactics. That would explain why they are so easily drawn to conspiracy theories. If you look at most of their posts, they appear to have been written by preteen adolescent boys, which furthers my believe that they are weak minded. Yep, most definitely, that MUST be it.
These right wing morons are the guys you invite to poker night. You tell them they are losing because they're getting bad cards and maybe their luck will be better next week. They are mesmerized by FOX News because it validates all their prejudice and fear. FOX encourages them to blame others (Obama) for failures in their lives.
These lemmings buy into it hook line and sinker.

Rush Limbaugh Calls Troops ‘Welfare Queens, Moochers’

From the upscale Palm Beach corporate headquarters of his Excellence in Broadcasting Network, right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh unloaded on America’s men and women in uniform, insinuating their motives as less than pure.

The comments came during Limbaugh’s second hour on Monday. A caller had voiced support for President Obama’s signature Affordable Health Care Act, the crowning achievement of Obama’s administration thus far and a piece of legislation that conferred health care coverage on 40 million of the nation’s poor and middle class. When the caller identified himself as a retired Army Master Sergeant, and compared the AFA to the military’s free medical care for all servicemembers and their families, Limbaugh cut him off and began the controversial response.

You see, Master Sergeant,” began Limbaugh, rubbing his hands together,“you have exposed yourself. I thank you for the call — and I thank you for your service, I really do — but you’ve exposed yourself. Of course you like the idea of the government putting a band-aid on every little boo-boo you get, wiping your nose for you, giving you free prescription Advil when you could buy it at the drug store like the taxpayer, so on and so forth. You like that idea because you’ve lived with that your whole life. You said you joined the Army at 18. My guess is that before that, before you enlisted, you were on welfare. When you joined, you were essentially on welfare, because whether or not you ever go to war, you get free medicine, free food, free place to sleep, even free clothes to wear to work every day. The taxpayer even gives you years-long paid vacations to exotic foreign lands.....

“You’ll also probably think, well—” and here Limbaugh inclined the intonation of his voice to imitate that of a child,“Mr. Limbaugh, if only everyone could have fwee ice cream, Mr. Limbaugh, then the world would be all sunshine and unicorns and happiness. The only problem,” continued Limbaugh, returning to his normal voice,“is that ice cream, folks, like health care, is not free.... And if you believe otherwise, you are not a defender of the nation. You’re a welfare queen — or more appropriately, a welfare grunt.”

“You’ll also probably think, well—” and here Limbaugh inclined the intonation of his voice to imitate that of a child,“Mr. Limbaugh, if only everyone could have fwee ice cream, Mr. Limbaugh, then the world would be all sunshine and unicorns and happiness. The only problem,” continued Limbaugh, returning to his normal voice,“is that ice cream, folks, like health care, is not free. It is a product, created by a producer. And you have just as much a right to getting it for free as you have to getting ice cream for free. That is, you do not have a right to it for free. And if you believe otherwise, you are not a defender of the nation. You’re a welfare queen — or more appropriately, a welfare grunt.”

It used to be, back when I was of age to serve, back in the Vietnam era, that soldiers were stout, upright, conservative young men. They were Southern. They voted Republican. Their wives stayed home and had babies and knew their place. Cooked dinner, had a highball waiting when the husband got home, so forth. But nowadays we have a new generation of young military youth — low-information voters raised on liberal propaganda like Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers and PBS, what have you. Get their news from the drive-by media. They learned welfare, mooching, kumbaya and hand-holding from those sources. They learned mooching from an early age, folks. And even in uniform, still moochers. Can’t change a leopard’s….well, in this case, you can change a leopard’s spots, folks. But he’s still a leopard. Still a moocher. A little Obama jihadist, ready to march out and drone-attack American citizens in Yemen or Pakistan.”

Florida Blue is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.

Praise Obama!!!

All they have to do is install the software as it was intended to be installed. For some reason, these genuises decided to remove copyright identification from free software.
I often wonder just how stupid this administration can get. Always, it's not long before they prove they can be even more stupid that I can imagine.
One of the problems with the website is that they went to great lengths to hide the real premium cost and the provider networks. The result is that people keep searching for vital decision-making information that isn't there and finally give up in frustration.

Of course, they have already "enrolled" by that time....whatever that means...

Old news and debunked...well, "clarified" is a better term. Florida Blue and Kaiser terminated the policies that did not meet the minimum requirements of the ACA and offered patients new policies. It is up to the patients whether they want to remain with Florida Blue or Kaiser. In the case of Florida Blue, they will automatically enroll patients in a plan if they haven't heard from them by a certain date.

The Post humorously describes Obama’s loony press conference as “a consumer-friendly defense of the health care law.” Rubbish. It was a desperate hard-Left politician appropriating the language of capitalism to conceal another failure of authoritarian anti-capitalism. Obama drops language about shops full of goods, cash registers, cell-phone bills, and “products” without a shred of their honest meaning. ObamaCare is not a “shop,” the shelves are not filled with “products,” and customers are not checking out with a basket full of freely-chosen goods. Wal-Mart can’t sic the IRS on you to extract a tax/penalty if you decide not to buy something.
Obama looked like Billy Mays pitching Kaboom on an infomercial....
