The tea baggers MUST concentrate on the state level. They will never win a national election again.

Unless you're one of the lucky ones who actually gets to keep your insurance as promised or are below the poverty line, I'd love to know what your premiums and deductibles are going to be.

Also, I hope you're also not in the ages 21 to 39 young males category. If so, brace yourself.

GOVERNOR GENERAL OBAMAS AMERICA Head of Congressional Intelligence Committee:“You Can’t Have Your Privacy Violated If You Don’t KNOW Your Privacy Is Violated”
Argues Spying Okay As Long As Government Doesn’t Get Caught

The chair of the House Intelligence Committee – Mike Rogers – said yesterday in an NSA spying hearing which he led that there is no right to privacy in America.

Constitutional expert Stephen I. Vladeck – Professor of Law and the Associate Dean for Scholarship at American University Washington College of Law – disagreed.

Here’s the exchange:

Rogers: I would argue the fact that we haven’t had any complaints come forward with any specificity arguing that their privacy has been violated, clearly indicates, in ten years, clearly indicates that something must be doing right. Somebody must be doing something exactly right.

Vladeck: But who would be complaining?

Rogers: Somebody who’s privacy was violated. You can’t have your privacy violated if you don’t know your privacy is violated.

Vladeck: I disagree with that. If a tree falls in the forest, it makes a noise whether you’re there to see it or not.

Rogers: Well that’s a new interesting standard in the law. We’re going to have this conversation… but we’re going to have wine, because that’s going to get a lot more interesting…

What Rogers is really saying is that the government has the right to spy on everyone so long as it doesn’t get caught doing so.

How’s that different from arguing that it’s okay for a thief to takes $100 from your bank account as long as you don’t notice that the money is missing? Or that it’s okay to rape a woman while she’s passed out so long as she doesn’t realize what happened?

That’s beyond ridiculous.

Your party is on the brink of extinction. That will cement your future.
We should probably wait until the end of the year to make that assessment.

The Republicans now have time on their side after being blamed for the shutdown but giving the Democrats everything they wanted.

The exchange website should be up and running and sticker shock will have hit the masses by the millions, not just the hundreds.

And thouands, if not milllions, more will have received their cancellation letters by their insurers or told they have to pay a lot more to get coverage they don't even want or need.

What we're seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg.

The polls still show the majority are not in favor of Obama's and your utopia that doesn't exist in the real world.

Americans prefer zombies over the federal government

ItÂ’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans donÂ’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who canÂ’t decide between the two.

These findings are no surprise, given that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters now view the federal government unfavorably, with 34% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats still pledge allegiance to the federal government, but pluralities of Republicans (45%) and those not affiliated with either major political party (44%) have more confidence in zombies when it comes to running the nationÂ’s affairs.

Only six percent (6%) of all Americans anticipate a zombie apocalypse, so supporters of the federal government can rest easy. Eighty-two percent (82%) do not, but 12% are not sure.

Among those who expect an apocalypse, 74% say they are at least somewhat prepared, with 53% who are Very Prepared.

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on October 29-30, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Forty-one percent (41%) of Americans nationwide say they have watched a movie like “World War Z” or a TV show like “The Walking Dead” about a zombie apocalypse.

But only five percent (5%) think the recent boom in zombie-based books, films and TV shows is good for society. Thirty-five percent (35%) see this recent popularity as bad for society, while 51% say it has no impact.

Most adults 65 and older think the zombie craze is bad for society. Most younger adults say it has no impact.

Americans ages 18 to 64 express slightly more confidence in zombies to run things than in the federal government. Seniors have more faith in the government.

Men are more likely than women to think zombies would do a better job running the country. Blacks are more than twice as likely as whites and other minority Americans to believe the government would do a better job than zombies.

Americans who expect a zombie apocalypse express a lot less confidence in the federal government.

Just 25% of voters think the country is heading in the right direction, although thatÂ’s up from 13% during the recent federal government shutdown.

Fifty-four percent (54%) want a long-term budget deal that cuts federal spending, but 64% expect another shutdown soon because Congress canÂ’t reach such a deal.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights.
How's the tea party numbers???

the powers and rules of the HOA are clearly stated before the property is purchased...and the HOA is much easier to deal with than the typical municipal know, the big dictators...

HOAs are useful if you want to live in a neighborhood where your neighbors can't park RVs and boats in their driveway or on the street, leave junk cars in the yard, or paint their houses pink.

George initiated the HOA program, the Sanford Police Department NW liaison made the presentation at a HOA meeting and furnished the pamphlets, signs and so on. She testified during the trial__clearly smitten by George she wanted him to apply for the Citizens on Patrol program. Another HOA member testified that it was assumed that George would be in charge. George also took an active roll on the parking committee.
the HOA was foolish to get involved and even more foolish to pay off the zombies, unless the insurance company insisted...
