Yeah, they had some pretty good music-the words were even understandable then still!

The alcohol went right to her butt. Smoking pot and gobbling cases of Twinkies didn't help either.

The so called shutdown was a blip, even counting the money Ostupida spent trying to close outdoor parks and monuments, what a dirtbag that man is.
It's why saying sorry just doesn't cut it. The damage has been done. The lying and blaming and demonizing can't be undone. He's not a bit sorry about that.

He still thinks he has a good "product" and the cash registers are just broken.

He doesn't care if the "product" costs more than anyone wants to pay or if people don't even want it. He's forcing us to buy it anyway and thinks that because it was his idea, we're going to be better off and grateful.

He has a heck of a lot more to be sorry for to be forgiven.

Poor Al. All alone in that big mansion with only regrets and delusions to keep him company.

He can't even seduce a hotel maid without it making national news and being called a crazed sex poodle.

Al must be very lonely with all that money from duping so many and becoming the brunt of late night jokes.

That's what happens when you become too full of yourself and get rich perpetrating a lie just to be relevant politically, I suppose.

"Galt" is "Galt" and he has the right to his opinions and thoughts, just as you do. Abortion/murder is going to continue, so is gay marriage. I am anti both. Little we can do about it, the Supreme Court has ensured that. Our voices would be much better heard if we spend our efforts at speaking out about nobamakare, something that is not yet set in stone, something nearly 60% of American's do not support. nobamakare is a lie, the president nobama lies when he supports it, nobama has one goal in mind, single payer, government controlled health care. A program designed to take from the doers and producers and give to those with their hands out.
Carter was a terrible president, Bush 2 not much better, Bush 1 and clinton were not so bad, but all of them were sterling when compared to nobama, a born liar.

Again, sorry I got sidetracked. Just wish I hadn't seen that video. Probably scared some people away.

But that's me. Something clicks when I see animals abused and can't help my strong reaction. It's just going to happen and there's not a thing I can do about it.

You are right all Christians are not "evangelical" but "evangelical" Christians, for the most part, are tax and spend liberals, spending for handouts. They are touchie feelie folks. It is their right. We do not need generations of those with their hands out, we need folks who get out, work, produce and take care of their own.

I check on Covered California to verify your "quote" and (surprise) couldn't.
For a couple, both 55 years old earning $100,000 a year, the highest coverage (in which EACH person has 3+ prescriptions a year plus 20+ Doctor visits a year and multiple ongoing lab tests and hospital stays), the premium is $1107.00 a month for a zero deductible family plan. I suggest you take another look.
Galt tried, but the site is down...check the premium for a platinum plan at age 64....

There are 16.4 million American children living in poverty. That's nearly one quarter (22.6 percent) of all of our children. More alarming is that the percentage of poor children hasclimbed by 4.5 percent since the start of the Great Recession in 2007. And poor means poor. For a family of three with one child under 18, the poverty line is $18,400.
Meanwhile, the stock market is booming. Banks, hedge funds and private equity firmsare making tens of billions of dollars again. In fact, their bonuses are expected to climb by 5 to 10 percent this year, while Wall Street banks doll out $91.44 billion in bonus money.
Most amazing of all is the fact that 95 percent of the so-called "recovery" has gone to the top 1 percent who have seen their incomes rise by 34 percent. For the 99 percent there's been an undeclared wage freeze: the average wage has climbed by only 0.4 percent.
To add to the misery, Washington has decided that the best way to tackle childhood poverty is to have poor kids eat less. Both parties already have agreed to cut billions from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps). As of November 1, payments dropped from $668 a month to $632 for more than 47 million lower-income people -- 1 in 7 Americans, most of them children.
And more cuts are coming. The Tea Party House passed a bill to cut food stamps by $4 billion a year, while the Democratic-controlled Senate calls for $400 million in cuts. How humane! And since it will be part of the omnibus Farm Bill, President Obama will sign it.(I wonder how our former community organizer will explain this to the poor children he once tried to help in Chicago.)
But that's just the start. More austerity is coming in the form of cuts to Social Security as well as a host of other social programs. When times get tough, you've got to suck it up and take more from the poor.
Rewarding Billionaires Who Increase Poverty?
It gets even more revolting when we realize that the financial billionaires who are profiting so handsomely from the recovery are the very same who took down the economy in the first place. They were the ones who created and pedaled the toxic securities that puffed up and then burst the housing bubble. Those financial plutocrats caused 8 million workers to lose their jobs in a matter of months. Those bankers, hedge fund honchos and fund managers are directly responsible for the rise in child poverty rates. Washington bailed out those billionaires and is now asking the poor and the middle class to pay for the ensuing deficits with further cuts in social programs at every level of government.
Why do we put up with such injustices?
Washington Is in Wall Street's Pocket
Before we entirely succumb to financial amnesia, let's recall how we got here. Since the late 1970s, the financial sector has been on a crusade to remove any and all financial regulations. The goal was to undo all the controls put in place during the Great Depression that so effectively curtailed financial speculation and outright gambling. Once deregulated Wall Street engineered a Ponzi-like housing bubble that netted it astronomical sums. By the time it burst in 2007, 40 percent of all corporate profits flowed into the financial sector. Wall Street wages grew by leaps and bounds.
That's what happens when you elect a president whose goal is for the United States to be brought down a few notches - like Greece.
