Good morning. Yeah. I skipped over 1,200 posts. I can't imagine that I missed anything. Rethugs still seem to be stuck on stupid.
But, but, but..."Bush isn't president anymore". Don't you get sick of hearing that excuse? Rush Limpball said the promise that "you can keep your plan" is "the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president." Worse than lying about WMD's?? Worse than Reagan's Iran-Contra affair? Nixon's Watergate scandal? What an idiot.
I do believe that Obama mislead the public about the ACA but it certainly doesn't rise to the level of the lies told by Republican presidents. Besides, if your policy was grandfathered and you liked it...you could keep it. It was a half-truth. He certainly could have added "unless your insurer makes changes to your plan."
Certainly the Department of Health and Human Services ALWAYS said that policy holders would have to "transition" to "ACA-compliant" plans. That was disclosed from the very beginning. There was no subterfuge about the fact of change. IMO, it won't be an issue come election time IF the webpage is fixed and millions of people are able to benefit from the ACA. Change is always difficult.
"There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction" --Winston Churchill The ACA is headed in the right direction.
You are such a loser--last week you were defending the liar O'bama to the hilt. ROTFLMAO. Looooooooooser O'bamasupporternomatterwhat. O'bama is sorry for your misunderstanding--he blamed the American public, he didn't apologize for nuttin'.

I prefer balance, with the Republican Party imploding we may start moving farther to the left. Although it's possible the Republican Party will dump the Tea Baggers and become a moderate party which Homer will gleefully join. We may yet have a 3 party system with Tea Baggers - right, Republicans with Independents and moderate Democrats joining/forming - center, and a left leaning, Democrat Party.

The Occupy Wall Streeters defecating on police cars and raping women in tents are the pride of the Democrat party!

See the difference?

You are afraid of a bunch of American veterans sitting in lawn chairs with signs!

But how powerful they are!!!

Go and defecate in a police car, you Democrat!

Mormon Church Taking Over in Florida

By Kevin Spear, Orlando Sentinel

6:08 p.m. EST, November 7, 2013

The Mormon church stands to own nearly 2 percent of Florida by completing a deal to buy most of the real estate of the St. Joe Co. for more than a half-billion dollars.

The megapurchase was announced jointly Thursday by a corporate representative of church, which owns the nearly 295,000-acre Deseret Ranches in Central Florida, and by the real-estate and timber business, which has built several communities along the Panhandle coast.

According to the announcement, a church entity, AgReserves Inc., will buy 382,834 acres – the majority of St. Joe's timberlands – in Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties for $565 million.

Completion of the deal will leave the Utah-based church with 678,000 acres, an area larger than any other private holding in Florida, according to widely shared but unconfirmed rankings of top landowners.

AgReserves Inc., a taxpaying company of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will maintain timber and agricultural uses of the Panhandle acreage, according to the announcement.

How did the liberal media even find Todd Akin? No one even knew who he was until that weird statement and suddenly the liberal media depicted him as this very important Republican and the spokesman for all tea party conservatives even though he immediately admitted it came out the wrong way and not the way he intended it to.
So where do they find these otherwise inconsequential people who make some kind of inconsequential statement that doesn't represent anyone's opinion but their own?
Akin was Republican candidate for US Senate in Missouri, hardly inconsequential. Anybody but an idiot would have won that election against a DemoKKKrat who was widely despised.

Don't blame the media. Akin shot himself in the balls by repeating what he had been taught in his church. Akin had no mind of his own, just his evangelical religion.

So Romney was just a ruse to distract us from this pending purchase. Very clever.

actually, Bush was never elected by the people. the Court picked W the first time after Gore won the popular vote.

the second was won on the back of voter fraud.
