Not sure what your point is.

All I know is teachers and students are cussing each other out in high-risk middle and even elementary schools.

Is this what you call a learning environment? And what exactly is YOUR solution?

(Detention is not a learning environment - just in case that was going to be your kneejerk reaction.)

unethical dumbass Dave supports dairy buyouts only to have the dairy farmer take that money and build a brand new dairy.

dumbass Dave supports dairy farmers complaining that they don't make enough money when they just bought their 16 year old a brand new corvette or $80k truck.

dumbass Dave is too stupid to realize I am surrounded by hundreds of dairys and know dozens of dairy farmers and have forgotten more about dairys than he'll ever know.

Minority-Owned Businesses
SBA’s 8(a) Business Development program can help qualifying minority-owned firms develop and grow their businesses through one-to-one counseling, training workshops, and management and technical guidance. The program also provides access to government contracting opportunities, allowing these businesses to become solid competitors in the federal marketplace.

How do I know if I qualify for the 8(a) program?

Some minority groups are presumed to be socially and economically disadvantaged and can qualify for the 8(a) program. These groups include: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans and Subcontinent Asian Americans. Individuals who are not members of one or more of these groups can be considered for the 8(a) program, but they must provide substantial evidence and documentation that demonstrates that they have been subjected to bias or discrimination and are economically disadvantaged. Firms owned by Alaska Native Corporations, Indian Tribes, Native Hawaiian Organizations and Community Development Corporations can also apply to the program.

You ran one for a Senate seat.

You can still decide to home treat your broken leg.

With Obamacare, I have some protection that I don't have pay your medical bills when that cut on the leg turns into flesh eating bacteria.

This is how ignorant you are. You think Obamacare is making you go to the doctor? Really?

So, its Obama's fault that you were sofa king stupid you didn't know that a mandate requires a definition of minimum coverage & obviously if your policy did not meet the minimum you would have to change? Obviously Obama was talking about qualified insurance plans.

Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy people with average incomes get health insurance. It was designed to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line, and those with chronic or costly medical conditions."
The Obama administration always knew millions of self sufficient could not keep their health insurance...
It's the culture...
Are you saying that Obama lied!!???

I have to ask again. Why did Democrats reject health care reform back in 1974?
Nixon believed strongly in a national health insurance plan.
He stated,“The time is at hand this year to bring comprehensive, high quality health care within the reach of every American.”
His employer mandate to provide health insurance as part of his planned universal health care coverage for all citizens was seen as inadequate by many democrats in congress.
It was opposed by unions such as the AFL-CIO and the United Autoworkers as well who lobbied hard to defeat the legislation.
Ironic, isn't it? The same unions who lobbied hard against Nixon's universal health care plan but without big government intrusion lobbied hard for Obamacare and are now crying alligator tears.
Seems liberals AND unions get stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Seems like Lois Lame missed her morning meds. Let's see what what else happened in 1974__let's hone in on August 9, 1974.

What happened on that day babe, that may have upstaged health care reform? What led up to that day that may have upstaged health care reform? Hint: it had nothing to do with Wilbur Mills taking a dip in the tidal basin.

<quoted text>“I keep playing that over and over in my head: that you can keep your health plan, period,” said Terri Flay, a Manassas, Virginia, woman whose policy is being canceled, referring to Obama’s pledge.“But it isn’t ‘period.’ They put a gun to my head saying that I have to pay more because I need the health-care insurance.”
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-10-29/heal...
The unanswered question is "when did she get her insurance policy?" If it was after the passing of the Affordable Care Act, there was never any expectation that the policy couldn't be cancelled. Period. That should have been pretty clear from the beginning.

Obama was right when he said "you will be able to keep your doctor, you can keep your plan" but he should have realized that 50% of the people in the U.S. have IQ's below 100 and prefaced it with "if your policy was in effect at the time of passing the ACA there is nothing in the proposal that forces anyone to change the insurance they have..."

Then he should have, once again, recalled the average IQ level and clarified that nothing in the ACA prevents insurers or employers from making changes as they always have done in the past.

What we are really dealing with here is Republicans trying to kill the ACA before it gets started. Period. You know very well that once it is working and more and more people are covered, the ACA will be virtually impossible to repeal and that just scare the hell out of you.
