Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Even though I agree with you that there's nothing wrong with seniors supplementing their SS incomes under the table, my supplemental part-time income will be on a payroll. Which is okay too. Not making enough to affect SS.
But extra income is extra income, right?

If Carol thinks there is "nothing wrong" with taking money under the table (cheating on SS and taxes), or stealing, then Carol has a different view of Christianity than most.

C'mon, Galt. Give me a break.
So a law that subsidizes medical care and college tuitions for all Americans should be denied to evangelicals when they didn't write those laws anymore than you or Eed did?
Seriously? You're starting to become a disappointment and will have to do some serious backtracking to change my mind.
And let me remind you that evangelicals is just another word for Protestants - versus Catholics.

So Catholics can get subsidized Medicare and college loans but not Protestants?

Really, Galt, time for some serious backtracking on your part.

Where do you? I take it you are against mental health treatment being covered by insurance?
Yes, except on a voluntary basis.

Anyone with assets that wants such treatment would be well-advised to pay cash and have the provider sign an agreement not to maintain any records of the treatment.

Healthcare is seen and implemented by every country on the planet as a basic human right. Yet somehow, you wish to deny that right to a certain percentage of the population because you fear the quality of your own care might suffer ?
If you had to argue this case in the international court of justice how would you go about it ? That is your neighbour had treatable cancer but you denied them treatment because they didn't have insurance. Tell us how you would work that, just make them comfortable in the emergency room and await to die.?
But if horses get mistreated then you expect the wrath of God upon those who mistreat them. How does your lot manage to juggle this moral dilemma in their head apart from tuning into Fox & trying to find a clause in the constitution where looking after your fellow man is outlawed.
Socialized medicine is not working in every country on the planet now and has never worked in the past.

America is supposed to be the exceptional country leading the way - not following everyone else down the wrong path.

But you're a liberal and wouldn't have any idea what I'm talking about.

Seniors who pocket a little cash doing menial jobs working at golf clubs and restaurants, etc., to supplement their SS checks can pocket that little bit of cash without the government needing to get their grubby little hands on it.

I'm on payroll with my part-time job if that makes you feel better.

But if I was making small change waitressing or shining golf clubs at a golf club, you can bet your sweet patooty I'd be pocketing that little cash without telling the IRS anything about it.

Tough if that traumatizes you.

Care to show me where there are Palestinians? I don't seem to see any.

The history of Palestine is the study of the past in the region of Palestine, the geographic region in Western Asia between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, and various adjoining lands. Situated at a strategic location between Egypt, Syria and Arabia, and the birthplace of major Abrahamic religions[1] the region has a long and tumultuous history as a crossroads for religion, culture, commerce, and politics. Palestine has been controlled by numerous different peoples, including the Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Philistines, Tjekker, Ancient Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Muslims, the Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mameluks, Ottomans, the British, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1948-1967, on the "West Bank") and Egyptian Republic(in Gaza), and modern Israelis and Palestinians. Other terms for the same area include Canaan, Zion, the Land of Israel, Southern Syria, Jund Filastin, Outremer, the Holy Land and the Southern Levant.
The region was among the earliest in the world to see human habitation, agricultural communities and civilization. During the Bronze Age, independent Canaanite city-states were established, and were influenced by the surrounding civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, Minoan Crete, and Syria. During 1550–1400 BCE, the Canaanite cities became vassals to the Egyptian New Kingdom who held power until the 1178 BCE Battle of Djahy (Canaan) during the wider Bronze Age collapse. Modern archaeologists dispute parts of the Biblical tradition, the latest thinking being that the Israelites emerged from a dramatic social transformation that took place in the people of the central hill country of Canaan around 1200 BCE, with no signs of violent invasion or even of peaceful infiltration of a clearly defined ethnic group from elsewhere.[2] The Philistines arrived and mingled with the local population, and according to Biblical tradition, the United Kingdom of Israel was established in 1020 BCE and split within a century to form the northern Kingdom of Israel, and the southern Kingdom of Judah. The region became part of the Neo-Assyrian Empire from c. 740 BCE, which was itself replaced by the Neo-Babylonian Empire in c. 627 BCE. A war with Egypt culminated in 586 BCE when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II and the local leaders were deported to Babylonia, only to be allowed to return under the Achaemenid Empire.

And remember, Galt, a 62 or 70-year-old woman working as a waitress to make a few extra bucks in tips works at a Waffle House and not the Four Seasons.

We're talking about a menial amount of money here.

Seniors get to keep a little extra cash without reporting it. It's a rule.

In the 330s BCE, Alexander the Great conquered Palestine, and the region changed hands numerous times during the wars of the Diadochi, ultimately joining the Seleucid Empire between 219–200 BCE. In 116 BCE, a Seleucid civil war resulted in the independence of certain regions including the minor Hasmonean principality in the Judean Mountains. From 110 BCE, the Hasmoneans extended their authority over much of Palestine, creating a Judean–Samaritan–Idumaean–Itur aean–Galilean alliance.[3] The Judean (Jewish, see Ioudaioi) control over the wider region resulted in it also becoming known as Judaea, a term that had previously only referred to the smaller region of the Judean Mountains. During 73–63 BCE, the Roman Republic extended its influence into the region in the Third Mithridatic War, conquering Judea in 63 BCE, and splitting the former Hasmonean Kingdom into five districts. In 70 CE, Titus sacked Jerusalem, resulting in the dispersal of the city's Jews and Christians to Yavne and Pella. In 132 CE, Hadrian joined the province of Iudaea with Galilee to form the new province of Syria Palaestina, and Jerusalem was renamed "Aelia Capitolina". During 259–272, the region fell under the rule of Odaenathus as King of the Palmyrene Empire. Following the victory of Christian emperor Constantine in the Civil Wars of the Tetrarchy (306–324), the Christianization of the Roman Empire began, and in 326, Constantine's mother Saint Helena visited Jerusalem and began the construction of churches and shrines. Palestine became a center of Christianity, attracting numerous monks and religious scholars. The Samaritan Revolts during this period caused their near extinction.
Palestine was conquered by the Islamic Empire following the 636 CE Battle of Yarmouk during the Muslim conquest of Syria. In 661 CE, with the assassination of Ali, Muawiyah I became the uncontested Caliph of the Islamic World after being crowned in Jerusalem. In 691, the Dome of the Rock became the world's first great work of Islamic architecture. The Umayyad were replaced by the Abbasids in 750. From 878 Palestine was ruled from Egypt by semi-autonomous rulers for almost a century, beginning with Ahmad ibn Tulun, and ending with the Ikhshidid rulers who were both buried in Jerusalem. The Fatimids conquered the region in 969. In 1073 Palestine was captured by the Great Seljuq Empire, only to be recaptured by the Fatimids in 1098, who then lost the region to the Crusaders in 1099. Their control of Jerusalem and most of Palestine lasted almost a century until defeat by Saladin's forces in 1187, after which most of Palestine was controlled by the Ayyubids. A rump Crusader state in the northern coastal cities survived for another century, but, despite seven further Crusades, the Crusaders were no longer a significant power in the region. The Mamluk Sultanate was indirectly created in Egypt as a result of the Seventh Crusade. The Mongol Empire reached Palestine for the first time in 1260, beginning with the Mongol raids into Palestine under Nestorian Christian general Kitbuqa and reaching an apex at the pivotal Battle of Ain Jalut. In 1486, hostilities broke out between the Mamluks and the Ottoman Turks in a battle for control over western Asia and the Ottomans captured Palestine in 1516.

The majority didn't think the cuts due to sequestration were enough.
The conservatives tried to get the Democrats to cut spending first before raising the debt ceiling yet again seeing that we're soon approaching a $20 million deficit - astronomically higher than ever before in our history.
But Democrats think there's a money tree growing in the Rose Garden. Either that or they think Americans don't mind bailing out big government's mismanagement of our money already.
Your precious Democrats refused to cut anything in the budget before raising the debt ceiling at this very crucial time. It was they who essentially shut down the government. Conservatives had no choice but to give them what they wanted even though they were still blamed for trying to protect us from potentially becoming a bankrupt nation sooner than later at this point.
It's because we're now the DDUSA. Thanks to people like you.
lol! You're fighting NOT pay for services / obligations rendered son.

You're fighting to be a deadbeat!

But hey, even YOUR people couldn't swallow Paul Ryan's so called 'budget' proposal. Even people who knew less than Ryan could tell his ideas were unworkable.

So it would appear even cons have problems with themselves!

Yes, it is a ruse to circumvent the second amendment. 65 million people will get free mental health which means 65 million people will be unable to own a gun. Of course their family members won't be allowed to either, don't you know!!! You commies really think we are that stupid!!!?
