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?

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.

Don't know if you know about this case, but it was very despicable what happened. More upsetting is that none of the then prosecutors now Judges and the then detective and now sheriff were charged with misconduct.

These sorts of tricks are extremely common inside of Liberal Media. They are 'plants' into the psyche of the readers.

Lying and obfuscation through editing, omission, association, connotation or any of a hundred or so tools they use are a dime-a-dozen. Rules For Radicals is required reading for any American journalism student today.

I have a family member whose company KC also retires management at 55. However, his insurance and pension will continue until 65.

Thanks lily.

I did not realize that some here would have such a visceral reaction to me stating my opinion.

People give their opinions on other trials-I didn't know this was a sacred cow.
