Republicans have not won the popular vote for President in the last two elections.
A C A is more popular than the republican house of reps.

Or just meditate on these quotes:

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth." Buddha

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

Think most liberals are still in the first and second stages of finding truth; ridiculing and violently opposing it.

But, thankfully, time is on their side. Accepting it as self-evident is right around the corner.

Thanks for posting those. This is quite a garden you have stepped into, Chance. Good Luck. I'm off to the movies..."12 Years A Slave". A movie that most of the racists on here would never desire to see.
I'd love to see the movie as long as you starred in it.

Natl. Insurance Commissioner...

"NAIC STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT OBAMA'S ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING ONE YEAR EXTENSION FOR EXISTING PLANS"

"In addition, it is unclear how, as a practical matter, the changes proposed today by the President can be put into effect. In many states, cancellation notices have already gone out to policyholders and rates and plans have already been approved for 2014. Changing the rules through administrative action at this late date creates uncertainty and may not address the underlying issues. We look forward to learning more details of this policy change and about how the administration proposes that regulators and insurers make this work for all consumers."

Every time a negro gets in trouble and others speak out against them then their called racist ?? Millions of Americans hated George Bush and Dick Cheney . Was this because they were white ? Americans hated White Bill Clinton because he is a liar like Obama no because of his color . Oprah like many blacks of all ages are racist .

Oprah got her paycheck so now she's slipping up and showing her true color(s).

She's been a racist pig from day one but the quick buck kept her big lips tight.

Years back, I read her correctly and all of her actions since then have only reaffirmed my belief in her racist ways. A racist with money is a dangerous thing. A racist with power is, too.

Oprah and the Magic Negro are both in positions to do great damage.

Let's see...what we can talk about now?

Obama meeting with health insurers CEOs? Hoping now they will save his you-know-what after calling them "bad apples" for three years?

Sounds familiar. Same phenomenon is happening to Republicans. We're like the Calvary all of a sudden.

Obama could have gotten the main things he wanted if he and the Democrats had just allowed Republicans to help them sort it out before they insisted on screwing it up royally first.

Why did Obama and Democrats do that?

32 days!!!!!

this is where we see how smart Progressives are!

"This means that the insurance companies have 32 days to reprogram their computer systems for policies, rates, and eligibility, send notices to the policyholders via US Mail, send a very complex letter that describes just what the differences are between specific policies and Obamacare compliant plans, ask the consumer for their decision — and give them a reasonable time to make that decision — and then enter those decisions back into their systems without creating massive billing, claim payment, and provider eligibility list mistakes."

Maybe it's time we started healing old wounds with some levity and humor? Now that Obama has destroyed any hope of liberalism taking hold and the liberals' dream of hope and change for a while?
Let's all just put the ugly past behind us. Whaddya say?
"Let's all just put the ugly past behind us." so that we can begin putting the ugly present and 3 more years future behind us, too.

Well, no, can't even do a job on the big ones with clippers. Why I have to get pedicures now.

Just hate the part where they scrub the bottom of your feet. The rest of it is pretty nice.

The Daily Beast on Monday produced a shrill attack on the Tea Party titled
“How the Tea Party’s Apocalyptic Politics Are Destroying the Republican Party.”
Author Joe McLean announced his premise in the subheading:“Tea Party leaders view themselves as modern prophets of the end of times, ratcheting up their rhetoric to prove that Obama is evil and God is on their side.”
What followed was an attempt to demonize Tea Party leaders as the sort of apocalyptic prophets who most people consider crazy. McLean painted a picture of wild-eyed, dangerous right-wing fanatics through lines like this:
Yet the Tea Party is willing to defy overwhelming negative public opinion, wreck the government, risk plunging the world economy into chaos and invite political defeat. The driving force behind this destructive strategy is that Tea Party zealots answer to a "higher calling."
In an attempt to tie Tea Party leaders to the Biblical end-of-times world view, McLean excerpted this quote from Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas),“The biggest war being waged right now is against our religious liberties and traditional values.” He also excerpted this line from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.),“The fight for religious freedom starts here at home because we are one nation under God.”
The Daily Beast sells yellow journalism like the National Enquirer does.

...and duds like you are always there to buy it. Support your local Liberal Media, Dood.

You are what you eat and you've got humungous swallowing muscles.

Guess I've been silly enough for one night. Just had to take a break from the insanity for a while.

It's getting better than a soap opera though. I don't watch them but can't wait for each new day to see the next Obamacare episode.

"hate" is a very strong word, dearie.

Let's just say that I don't live in the past. I enjoy visiting but I don't enjoy living there.

...but I hate you because you and your odor are still very much here in the present.
