I don't expect you to understand, you are a government lemming. Government can't do things efficiently (or correctly), healthcare.gov us a perfect example. No private sector organization would enter a $92 million contract for a website. Government is full of waste and fraud and as far as snap is concerned, the just double down on it. If one is in need, why give them enough to afford steak and lobster ?
Medicare is much more efficient than private insurance companies.

Government is full of waste. Cutting food stamps to children os not the answer. Something like 30 Republican Congressmen who were OK with cutting food stamps receive agricultural subsidies.

Record Earmarks - under Bush & Republican Congress. But hey, who cares because these are the same f*king people you support today.

It really, really looks like you want to answer these questions.

Why do the American people have an obvious pathological liar for president?

When was the last time you heard anything even resembling the truth come out of Obama's mouth?

Why does Baghdad Bob have more credibility in the world than Jay Carney? Why does Zimbabwe have more credibility in the world than the United States?

... another one comes to mind....

Why are the United States Armed Forces training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan?

What is the plan for when Al Qaeda gets control of the chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria?

... let's not forget this one that you run from like the plague....

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Oh, hell. Why stop now....

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

... maybe one more...

Why didn't Obama have a clue the ObamaKare website was f*ck*d to hell and back when every other person in the entire administration knew it?

... another one comes to mind....

Why did we need to pay Obama to write the software when Michelle's classmate from Princeton was going to steal it?

.... maybe one more.....

Why was Obama so ignorant about what was written in ObamaKare, he made some ludicrous statement like "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it"?
Even you have to admit only the most ignorant person in the room would say something like that. Everyone knew that was a lie as soon as it came out of his mouth.

Would you call Obama the most ignorant president we ever had?
(You don't have to answer this question. You need all your abilities to answer the previous ones you continually run away from.)

In other words:
"You can keep your plan until we pass the bill"
Can Democrats be so stupid, naive and idiots?
She must not have heard Obama say "period" all those times after emphatically stating people could keep their plans and their doctors - which means no disqualifiers; no ifs, ands or buts.

He didn't say "until the bill is passed" once. Just "period".

Saying "period" so many times were like nails in the coffin of Obamacare.

Given the fact that the Democrats can rely on 35 percent of the vote even if they run the corpse of a dead dog for president, that makes Obama's approval rating 4 percent.

.... 4 percent.

Democrat Senator's Son Has Health Insurance Canceled

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party's rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.

Now, Homer. I thought you said you weren't going to argue today. I so hoped that meant you had wised up.

But just FYI...NBC, CBS and ABC are as upset as Fox about being lied to.

Hate to say it, Hom, but you're too gullible for your own good.

Does your wife get away with lying to you so easily?

I blame republicans and democrats, all looking to fill their coffers and buy votes using tax payer funded entitlements. Follow the money. Start with LBJ's war on poverty.

Easy prediction. The Democrats agreed to pull their slated challenger against Christi in exchange for Christi sabotaging the Republicans. Democrats pulling their greyhound and entering a chihuahua in the race is child's play to predict.
And that's why Christi is dead outside New Jersey. Without the Democrats helping him, he'd be dead inside New Jersey.

Homer has enrolled in the 12 Step Program.

“My name is Homer, and I’m an Obamaholic.” That’s the confession with which homer began The 12-Step Guide for the Recovering Obama Voter. It’s meant, of course, to be an aid not just to addicted individuals but also to a society that’s taken a wrong turn and gone off the rails.

And, analogously to the addicted individual, the first requirement is accurately targeting the blame:“the Obama presidency isn’t Obama’s fault — it’s ours. We should be impeached for having elected him.” And that includes “those of us who didn’t vote for him, because we didn’t persuade enough other people not to.”

In other words, there MUST BE A CURE FOR THE WHOLE COUNTRY that has “hit bottom,” with the national debt reaching staggering levels, the numbers of those unemployed and living off the dole continuing to burgeon, and the world scene descends into a Hobbesian nightmare as Iran strides unimpeded toward nukes and Islamists take the helm in Egypt and a raft of other countries. And ObamaCare already showing to be a HUGE failure.

What brought things to such a pass? What enabled Americans to enable “a man with no administrative experience to run the largest organization on earth”?

Why was Obama elected without “carefully examining [his] background, character, career, and plans,” while ignoring the fact that he lacked any record of significant achievements?

In the framework of AA, Homer has gone to look for the answers.

For one thing,“we became hooked on a political cult that…presented a politician as a messianic figure.” By electing Obama, the left has shown that its truly “faith-based,” attributing “providential potency to government.”

Government under the left’s dispensation, with the “philosopher-king” Obama at the helm, became a “primitive idolatrous pagan church in which the president of the United States is superstitiously believed to have the power to make initial unemployment claims shrink”— along with other miracles LIKE HEALING THE PLANET, while taking steps reflecting European-style statist fantasies INSTEAD OF EXPERIENCE AND PRUDENCE.

In electing Obama, Homer and America also fell for charisma “instead of valuing only character.”

Whereas Bush 43 “offended sophisticates by acknowledging a supreme being rather than pretending to be one,” Obama dissed American exceptionalism while projecting HIMSELF as what was truly exceptional,“the appointed person…at the appointed time.” And, taken in by his charismatic mien, people fell for it.

Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained,''Well, when came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single
Frenchmen to show a passport to."

You could have heard a pin drop.

Let me just use one of my wonderful metaphors.

Say your boss tells you and your coworkers they will get another week's paid vacation. Period.

And says it 6 or 7 times over a few months' time.

When rumors circulate that no extra paid vacations are forthcoming and paid vacations are going to be shortened instead, your boss tells you it's because corporate wanted to scare you and doesn't care about you. Even though he's the one who guaranteed it. Period.

In fact, he now guarantees your paid vacations WILL be shortened after all. Period.

Does that help some of you better understand what's happening here?

Democrat plant Sarvis will be Cuccinelli's undoing.

One of Sarvis’ main financial backers seems to be Libertarian Booster PAC, which given that it’s helmed by Joe Liemandt, an Austin, Texas Obama bundler and donor, has “boosting Libertarians” on it’s agenda solely to kneecap Republicans, which, in Virginia, it’s done admirably.
