These hypocrites like Dumb Dave don't make any sense and are so conflicted.
Libs are hypocrites. They just can't be helped. Another example:

'On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi King Abdullah to try and warm relations between the two countries.“A true relationship between friends is based on sincerity, candor and frankness,” said Prince Saudi al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, after the meeting.

But Kerry certainly wasn’t frank about Saudi Arabia’s brutal treatment of women; according to The New York Times,“Wary of inflaming Saudi sensitivities, Mr. Kerry sidestepped a reporter’s question about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, casting the debate as one ‘best left to Saudi Arabia.’”

The Obama administration has shown no such shyness with regard to ISRAEL:

In 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched into a diatribe against segregated buses in religious communities for women and men, despite the fact that those buses exist only in ultra-religious communities.

She also ripped into religious male soldiers leaving concerts at which women sang (there are some interpretations of Jewish law requiring that men not hear women sing).

Clinton compared Israel to Iran and the pre-civil rights movement South.

LECTURING A DEMOCRACY LIKE ISRAEL IS LIBERALISM.
LECTURING A SEXIST MONARCHY LIKE SAUDI ARABIA IS IMPERIALISM,
ACCORDING TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

No Carol we're not ignoring the obvious. Your side says that we should raise the retirement age and cut benefits while our side has a simpler solution; raise or eliminate the income cap on which Social Security is paid.

Forget the shutdown: Job creation surged in October despite dimmed expectations from the impasse in Washington.
There were a net 204,000 new jobs created for the month, though the unemployment rate rose to 7.3 percent. A separate measure that includes the underemployed and those who have quit looking also moved higher, from 13.6 percent to 13.8 percent.
The numbers easily topped economist expectations of 120,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs for the month, though it matched estimates for a slightly increase in the headline jobless rate.
"I find this bizarre," Moody's economist Mark Zandi told CNBC. "I wouldn't be surprised if this gets revised to some degree...down."
The data gave markets a jolt: Stock market futures that had indicated a higher opening turned lower, while interest rates spiked.
The numbers were expected to be noisy due in large part to the government shutdown and generally speaking have been on a modest downward trajectory lately. Heading into October, the economy was creating an average 185,000 jobs per month.
THE USA GOV HAVE EXPORT OUR JOBS!

THEY REGULATE THE HELL OUT OF BUSINESS!
THEY IMPORT MEXICANS TO DO THE WORK THAT THE HEALTHY PEOPLE ON WELFARE COULD DO!
WERE ARE THE JOBS,LOOK AT EVERTHING YOU BUY!
MADE IN CHINA!
John Crudele had interesting take on this:

October is one of those months when the Labor Department is pretty optimistic about the number of jobs it thinks (but can’t prove) were created by small, newly formed companies.

Last October, the Labor Department added 118,000 of these phantom jobs to the monthly count and there’s no reason it should be less generous this year.

Then there is the effect of the government shutdown that happened in mid-October. Because government workers have been paid — or will eventually be paid — their positions are not being counted as lost in the survey that produces the job count.

So those “furloughed” workers will not detract from job growth in the so-called establishment (or company) survey, which results in the figure that gives us monthly job growth.

If all 800,000 of those furloughed positions had been deducted, Friday’s number would come in at minus hundreds of thousands of jobs.

These furloughed workers will, however, be included in the unemployment rate, which is derived from a separate survey taken by calling houses. This could temporarily boost the jobless rate by a couple tenths of a percentage point.

That’s not to say the government shutdown won’t have any impact on the total number of jobs, as measured through the establishment survey. When the government shut down, people in the private sector were probably temporarily or even permanently let go from jobs connected to government contracts.

But will the effect be enough to reduce Friday’s number to growth of just 85,000, as Wall Street is expecting?

This is an unaccustomed position for me but I’m going to have to bet the over — meaning, I think the figure will come in over 85,000.

Keep one other thing in mind, though. No matter what, the figure will be the epitome of a mulligan: the forgiven shot that anyone who plays golf knows about.

All of this is moot, of course. The Fed will ignore the number when determining whether or not to begin to back off its quantitative easing policy. And economists will have a legitimate excuse to treat the October number will disdain.

Our concerns about the economy will get serious again on Dec. 6, when the November jobs figure comes out and we can again fret about the direction of our country.

Obamacare isn't going to make any difference in making appointments with your physician twit and ER's might very well be less busy since people will be able to see a doctor and prevent conditions from becoming so bad that they need immediate care.
most emergency room visits are pharma related...you know prescribed from the doctor to prevent (ha ha ha) conditions from becoming so bad. Drug overdose was the leading cause of injury death in 2010. Among people 25 to 64 years old, drug overdose caused more deaths than motor vehicle traffic crashes. 60% were pharma. In 2011, about 1.4 million ED visits involved the use of pharmaceuticals. Among those ED visits, 501,207 visits were related to anti-anxiety and insomnia medications, and 420,040 visits were related to opioid analgesics.

the government gave women the right...it was legislature lily--the government legislated what women could and could not do. Your analogy of back room alleys equates to Gosnell. How many women died in back alleys, on a kitchen table lily? got stats? let me help you out: If you look at data from the U.S. Bureau of Vital Statistics and the CDC, you'll see that the last time 1,000 women died from illegal abortions in a year was over 60 years ago, before penicillin was widely available. According to the U.S. Bureau of Vital Statistics, due to the advances made in medical technology, about 39 women died from illegal abortions in 1972, the year before abortion was legalized. During that time of medical progress, abortion had been legal in Europe and their death rates for legal abortions paralleled the death rates of illegal abortions in America.

Furthermore lily-- women were generally not getting "back-alley kitchen table" abortions. Over a decade before the legalization of abortion, the president of Planned Parenthood, Mary Calderone, declared that "90% of all illegal abortions are presently done by physicians." More women die from legal abortion today and don't forget about the suicides.

Who's the coconut head Carol? That would be you.
ObamaKare has nothing to do with health care. There is not one word in the ACA law that mandates specific health care services be provided, such as previous health care laws that mandated things like vaccinations, nor does it invoke any standards in accordance with any health care services must be provided. The ONLY specification defined in ObamaKare is, and I quote, "The Secretary will determine..." everything.
ObamaKare is solely a law applicable to insurance.
Let's see if you can follow this simple logic:
ObamaKare requires young healthy people to buy health insurance. Young healthy people can spend less money paying the Obama tax than it would cost to buy the health insurance. There is a directive to not collect the "tax". Young healthy people will only sign up for ObamaKare when they get sick. The end result will be only people consuming health care will be paying for health insurance. The government will have to subsidize the insurance companies, thus they will have to levy many other taxes to get this money needed to pay for ObamaKare.
It is obvious the government will have to pay the insurance companies to keep them out of bankruptcy because the young healthy "contributors" know they can sign up at any time and get in the system, and who's going to start giving their money away when they don't have to.
When the government pays for everything, the government controls everything.
ObamaKare isn't about health care. It's about health insurance and controlling the entire health care portion of the economy, as well as being the most effective tool known to coerce the population with.
There won't be enough health care assets to cover the mandated insurance. Since the government will control all health care, it will ration health care in accordance with a priority "The Secretary" establishes.

Mandated "profit" means companies can't increase their profit margin regardless of how much more educated, informed, efficient and effective they are than any other company participating in the same part of the economy. This means Fred Sanford's insurance company will have the same profit margin as Adam Smith's insurance company.

Now, since it's obvious every insurance company participating in the exchanges will go bankrupt without subsidies from the government, that $0.20 of every "premium" dollar, which will include the subsidies paid by the government, is nothing more than a kickback from the government to the insurance companies to participate in the exchanges.
If an insurance company participates in the exchanges, it is guaranteed to receive subsidies, and it is guaranteed to have $0.20 of every dollar to support the lifestyle of a company living off the government.

Now, that's not too difficult to understand, is it?
