The American Psychiatric Association (ASA) has dropped its designation of pedophilia as a “sexual orientation.”
They didn't drop it because of liberals and democrats. The liberals and democrats were the party of designation.

Conservatives stepped up to the plate and called out the crazied ASA. Of course, liberals will work to replace with original designation. The democrats' friends, the homosexuals, are pedophiles and they know it.

Looks like the broke voted for hand outs in VA...
and the evil white rich folks voted for the handouts...

By income:

Less than $50K:
R - 37 percent
D - 54 percent

and those evil 1 percenters.....
Income above $100K:
R - 43 percent
D - 49 percent

which leads to this...
Black men voted for:
R - 10 percent
D - 90 percent

Black women voted for:
R - 7 percent
D - 91 percent

The REAL OBAMA WINNERS Permit us to be skeptical.

When is a “federal health care plan” not a “federal health care plan”? When it stands in the way of certain giant corporations, already awash in profits, raking in even more.

Contrary to Sebelius’s claim, it is quite likely, as certain commentators have suggested, that the decision to exempt the ACA was made in 2009 as part of the deal reached with the pharmaceutical giants ensuring their support for Obama’s health care “reform.”

The exemption is important to these latter firms in particular. As the Wall Street Journal noted November 3, the ruling is a “significant win” for the leading drug makers.

The pharmaceutical firms have been engaged in a campaign against lower-cost generic drugs for decades. One of the means they have hit upon to advance that effort is the issuance of prescription drug coupons handed out to consumers. The coupons temptingly subsidize co-pays on expensive brand-name drugs and steer patients away from therapeutically equivalent generic drugs.

A June 2012 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association(JAMA) reported, for example, that Pfizer subsidizes the average co-pay for the anti-cholesterol drug Lipitor, decreasing its cost from $30 a month to $4. The generic equivalent simvastatin costs $10. As Kaiser Health News summarized the situation:“It’s a great deal for the patient, but not the insurer. According to the JAMA article, the insurer pays $18 a month for simvastatin and $137 a month for Lipitor,” more than seven times the cost. Of course, this “great deal” turns out to be the opposite, when the insurer passes on this additional cost to the consumer in the form of increased premiums.

In a useful interview conducted in September by RxObserver.com , Washington lawyer Kevin G. McAnaney, former chief of the Industry Guidance Branch, Office of Counsel to the HHS Inspector General, explains how a co-pay coupon comes within the anti-kickback statute:

“A copayment subsidy by a health care entity, whether by actual payment of the copayment or by waiving the copayment, is a classic kickback scheme: the subsidy is a payment to the enrollee to use the entity’s product or service. The federal government has repeatedly stated that Medicare copayment subsidies (other than those based on financial hardship) can violate the anti-kickback statute.” Violation of the statute is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

(McAnaney, incidentally, assumed in September that the ACA would be included in the anti-fraud regulations, observing that “The term ‘federal health care program’ is defined in the anti-kickback statute and would appear to cover the subsidized insurance plans in the exchanges.”)

The government’s definition of the drug coupons, when it comes to Medicare and other federal health care plans, as a form of fraud or bribery, and their resulting ban, costs the pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars a year. And it only stands to reason that they would apply considerable pressure on the Obama administration to exempt the plans and programs under ACA, where a new pool of tens of millions of consumers is involved, from such regulations. And not without success, as Sebelius’s decision indicates.

As noted above, the Wall Street Journal reported the happiness of the pharmaceutical firms at the news of Sebelius’s letter:“Drug makers had been anxiously awaiting word whether they could extend their copayment programs. GlaxoSmithKline PLC … said the ruling ‘appears to be good news for patients, and may provide important assistance for those who need help affording medicines under exchange plans.’ The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the industry’s trade group, said it welcomed the HHS’s determination.” The headline of one Journal piece was relatively candid,“Kickbacks From Drug Makers Given All-Clear on Health Exchanges.”

Where are the national protest what no one cares for this Woman More details are emerging about the mysterious death of 19-year-old Renisha McBride, who left her Detroit home Friday night and never returned.
Dearborn police had said they found McBride’s body “dumped” on the outskirts of Detroit in suburban Dearborn Heights.
Local FOX affiliate WJBK even gave the exact location of where McBride’s body was found: near Warren and Outer Drive.
McBride had been shot once in the head with a shotgun and left to die, police told her anguished aunt, Bernita Spinks.
“All our kids are getting killed. We’re burying our kids. It’s devastating,” Spinks told Fox 2. She pleaded with the public to help identify her niece’s killer(s).“Just as well as it’s my niece and my sister’s daughter, it could be your kid,” she said.
Now police are telling an entirely different story about what happened to Renisha.
Police now say McBride was shot by a homeowner in a case of self-defense.
Her body was not dumped near Warren and Outer Drive in Deerborn Heights, as police had earlier reported; now they say she was found on the man’s front porch where she dropped after he shot her in defense of his home.
Her family says that’s a lie.
“This man just came to the door, by somebody just knocking? She didn’t break in his house; she didn’t break a window. What, you seen somebody on your porch and you just start shooting? And then you say it was accidental? That wasn’t accidental; that wasn’t accidental, no,” said Spinks.
The family doesn’t know where McBride was headed when she left home that Friday in her white Ford Taurus. They were notified of McBride’s death that following Monday.
Police have identified the homeowner who shot McBride. He has not been charged.
McBride’s family calls her death “senseless.” The family described Renisha as “soft spoken, hardworking and stayed to herself.” They say no one would be afraid of Renisha.
A Trayvonette Martin. Jesse Sharpton will show up and the Magic Negro will make another racist speech from the White House lawn.

The family should be ashamed but instead are playing the race card.

They'll agree to split the settlement with azzhole Sharpton.

And then go make some more taxpayer-financed babies....

Everything Is Going EXACTLY As Planned

NBC News reported on October 28th that "sources deeply involved in ObamaCare concede that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to have coverage canceled in the next year."

"One expert said the figure could be as high as 80 percent."

Obamacare almost killed McAuliffe.

Most public polls leading up to Election Day had Democrat Terry McAuliffe coasting to victory, some by double digits, in the Virginia governor’s race. Instead he squeaked by, beating Republican Ken Cuccinelli by less than 3 percentage points.

Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. He became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour. The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered. Linda is a blonde, a Democrat, and an Obama supporter, but that could all be a coincidence. The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and the expiration date was from 2008, so it was determined to be Bush's fault.
