<quoted text>Yep, with Obamacare you can get a job, become a multimillionaire, and still end up on Medicaid whether you want to or not.
Didja see that on the news yesterday where this man said that on entering Obama's website that he was given only one "option" of *insurance*, Medicaid. That was in spite of his claim of owning a $5,000,000 home and having his kids in expensive, private schools.
We had to know from that irritible, internal conversation niggling in the dark corners of our minds, that any healthcare legislation that had the Subversive-in-Chief's name on it was going to be nothing but a Socialist piece of crap.

the only standard for an attorney to be "qualified" in any state is to be admitted to the bar....
The defense attorneys ARE NOT part of the county public defenders office (at least our local office), but are attorneys experienced at representing clients charged with serious crimes-qualified to act in this capacity by the state. They can come from anywhere in the state.

We were having to many troubles with poor representation and decided the additional cost of having these "qualified" lawyers was worth the cost so this would NOT be an ongoing problem.

We pay for Cadillac defense attorneys.

No, don't believe I did. But you like to pry into my personal business a lot. Sharing something about my former job is neither here nor there. Talking about my part-time job isn't either.
But someone brings it up or I wouldn't be talking about it in the first place. More times than not, it's you, throwing grenades about my personal life and then scolding me for addressing it.
Maybe if you stopped giving me advise when it's not asked for and acting like you know my personal situation better than I do, I'd stop addressing your prying and unwanted advise.
Deal?
no, because your constant need to discuss your personal life destroys your arguments on political issues....

Skakel was found guilty by a jury...your opinion on his guilt is irrelevant....and his guilt or innocence is not being argued in the appeal...
However, he won the appeal for poor representation. The state will have to decide if they want to re-try.

I was asked to share my opinion and I did. Little, did I know that this would so traumatic to those who disagreed. To me this is similar to the other claim - "It's the law." / shut-up.

What is your opinion of the OJ trail?

Like everything else, it is open to discussion.

Barry having the nerve to even run for that same office again tells us the confidence he had in his fellow D.C. felons voting for him again. He knew exactly what kind of community backing he had there.

Zimmerman was never important in himself, but just as a symbol of racially motivated malicious prosecution. Nothing that happens to him subsequently matters.
It was laughable the lengths some media sources went to paint Zimmerman as a racist. NBC, guilty of several politically motivated, selective editing violations, again took the cake.

Under Obamacare the CHEAPEST health insurance policies available to the typical American working family will cost $20,000 per year.

Other effects of the 2,572 page law include:

Premium increases up to 413% for some individuals.
An average $4,100 premium increase for families.
The penalty for taking money out of a Healthcare Savings Account for a non-medical reason doubles from 10% to 20%.
Using an HSA, flexible savings or health reimbursement account to pay for over-the-counter medication is no longer allowed.
FSA's will now be capped at $2,500.
1/3 of employers could stop offering healthcare.
Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion.
The itemized deduction limit for medical expenses will rise from 7.5% to 10% of adjusted gross income.
30 million Americans will still be uninsured eight years after Obamacare is fully implemented.
The average family can expect at least $5,875 in new taxes, fees and higher premiums once Obamacare is fully implemented.

Obamacare is the biggest overhaul to our healthcare system and the biggest tax increase in history. It will bring massive changes to our daily lives, most of them negative. Do you think Obamacare should be defunded before it cripples our healthcare system?

please explain...
A unionized family member of mine retired with pension at 55. Upon reaching the age of 62, she was sent a letter from the pension board informing her that her monthly pension amount would soon be cut in half because she could then begin collecting SS at her age of 62.

It went on to tell her that she could get more information regarding this issue by visiting the SS government website or call 1-800-xxx-xxxx.

I have no idea what you're talking about.

Are you going to refuse the government giving back the money they took from you at whatever age you retire? Because discussions about Social Security is the only thing I can think of.

But it's okay to talk about other things besides politics once in a while. Doesn't happen that often.
