You are sensitive, I wish you were like my friend, James, who is black, recently I ran across him and said, "hey boy, your Raiders lost again. His response, up yers honky, yer SeaHawks are about to lose. I asked him if he wanted to bet. He said no. We had a beer and watched the end of the game. SeaHawks won. We each bought a beer, Kokanne for me Bud for him. Now do not get the idea James is a dummy, he is retired, an attorney for nearly 35 years.

Why do you expect people to pay 3 months in advance?
"real dumb"
It sounds like 75 - 80% who are signing up for nobamakare are signing up for Medicaid. Those signing up that way do not pay in advance, they do not pay. Period.

Billionaire Feels 'Guilty' About 'Having Gotten Rich At The Expense' Of All Of Us
Wealthy people need to stop whining about the taxes they pay, realize their success is mostly dumb luck and pay even higher taxes to help the less fortunate, Bill Gross, the billionaire founder and chief investment officer of Pacific Investment Management Co., wrote to his wealthy investors on Thursday.
Yes I know many of you money people worked hard as did I, and you survived and prospered where others did not. A fair economic system should always allow for an opportunity to succeed. Congratulations. Smoke that cigar, enjoy that Chateau Lafite 1989. But (mostly you guys) acknowledge your good fortune at having been born in the ‘40s,‘50s or ‘60s, entering the male-dominated workforce 25 years later, and having had the privilege of riding a credit wave and a credit boom for the past three decades. You did not, as President Obama averred,“build that,” you did not create that wave. You rode it. And now it’s time to kick out and share some of your good fortune by paying higher taxes or reforming them to favor economic growth and labor, as opposed to corporate profits and individual gazillions.

Volt sales down 32% in October

David Shepardson and Melissa Burden

The Detroit News

General Motors Co. said Friday that Chevrolet Volt sales fell 32 percent in October in the face of falling gas prices.

The Detroit automaker said Volt sales fell to 2,022, down from 2,961 in October 2012. For the year, U.S. Volt sales are now down 2.7 percent to 18,782.

At the same time, Nissan Motor Co.’s all-electric Leaf sales were up 27 percent in October to 2,002 and are up 167 percent for the year to 18,078.

"We are seeing sluggish sales of some plug-in hybrids such as the Ford C-Max — down 21 percent — and Chevy Volt — down 32 percent. The most likely culprit responsible for the decline is gas prices and enticing traditional gas-powered vehicles that achieve 40 mpg plus. With fuel prices expected to fall further, the auto industry will be watching carefully to see if the pattern continues,” said Edmunds.com senior analyst Michelle Krebs.

I saw the Neville's on April 3 1968 in a Louisiana nightclub on my way to the New Orleans airport while traveling home from Tigerland for a short leave before returning to Vietnam. The flight out of New Orleans put me in Memphis on April 4th and stranded me there as all outbound flights were cancelled.
Hearing that song transports me back to those few days in time.
The experience changed my life.

ObamaCare IS Working!

An enormous number of insurance policies will soon be tossed on the ObamaCare bonfire in Virginia, Kentucky, and Idaho.

These states “have told insurance companies that they must scrap insurance plans that don’t meet the minimum coverage requirements laid out in the Affordable Care Act,” according to CNN.”These three states have determined that with so many changes required under Obamacare, it’s easier to start over than to try to bring existing plans into compliance.”

So much for the left-wing spin that it’s all just a rampage by evil insurance companies using the Affordable Care Act as an excuse to dump unprofitable customers!

Pay no attention to anyone who claims this was an unintended consequence of ObamaCare, or that the President was merely an ignorant fool who didn’t think his own policy all the way through, naively promising dozens of audiences that nothing like this would ever happen because he sincerely believed it.

Nonsense. This is by design. This is one of ObamaCare’s primary purposes.

The headline-scorching tsunami of cancellations we’ve seen over the past month is just the warm-up act, the tip of the iceberg. When the employer mandates go into effect, tens of millions of policies will die. The Administration itself very quietly estimated that over half of employer-sponsored insurance plans would be canceled, back in 2010.

Surveys have projected that at least a third of employers will stop offering health care altogether, sending their employees into the same ObamaCare exchange hell that individual insurance customers are currently experiencing.

Avik Roy at Forbes estimates “that if ObamaCare is fully implemented, at least 129 million (68 percent) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan, either because they already have or will lose that coverage by the end of 2014.”

Yes, the essential insurance-killing subroutines of ObamaCare are working very nicely indeed, but there is still much work ahead for them.

The Affordable Care Act is also doing a bang-up job of raising insurance premiums.

This is another thing Barack Obama lied shamelessly and routinely about – remember, he promised his scheme would reduce the average insurance premium by $2500 per year.

In reality, he and everyone else connected with this scam knew it would blow premiums through the roof, thanks to the heavy burden of its mandates. They’ve been tacitly admitting this over the past few days, when they sneer that your old, affordable coverage was sub-standard junk you were foolish to have been satisfied with.

Hardest hit will be a group our social health is entirely dependent upon: large families.
