Gore was so smart that he reported areas in Florida that he stated were cheating....he was ahead in those areas by a huge amount. That's how smart Gore was. Like every good liberal. He was cheating.

RAPID CITY, SD—Saying he had been very hard on himself recently over a series of small mistakes, local clinically insane man Isaac Whipple, 38, put things in perspective Monday morning by reminding himself that he is God.“I have a tendency to beat myself up over the tiniest little things, so when I’m feeling down like this it always helps to just sit down, take a deep breath, and remember that I am the Great God Almighty, Supreme Lord and Ruler of All Creation, and that nothing happens unless I will it,” the mentally ill Whipple told reporters, emphasizing that reminding himself he is immortal and holds sway over the lives of all living creatures “always calms [him] down a bit.”“I’m my own biggest critic and I tend to make mountains out of molehills, so it’s good to keep in mind the fact that I am a flawless and infallible being who controls everything that is and will ever be. I see all. I know all. I judge all. I am God. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.” When reached for further comment, Whipple attributed his recent bout of insecurity to the tremendous stress involved in ruling over the pits of Hell, as he is also Satan.

Rachel Maddow compiled and dissected a recent speech by Obama in which he explains the future use of FEMA camps directly allowing indefinite pre-emptive detention for crimes that have not been committed yet. Maddow stated Obama's overreach is "far beyond anything Bush and Cheney ever attempted and completely outside even the constitution's Article 1, Section 9."

She compares Obama's evolving policy to that of the Tom Cruise science fiction movie: Minority Report, in which Cruise works as a cop in the department of pre-crime, arresting people for things they haven't done yet.

The first step was to use the IRS to go after his political enemies. The FEMA camps are being held in reserve...just in case.

<quoted text> There is nothing in the ACA that said you could not keep your plan (assuming it was really a plan to begin with). There was eve a grandfather clause.
Do you mean ObamaKare?

ObamaKare. Call it by the name Obama sanctioned for it, dupe.

ObamaKare changed the requirements insurance companies had to comply with, allowed those insurance companies to cancel policies that didn't comply with the new standards, leaving, as of today, 5,000,000 people with cancelled policies, that make "if you like your policy you can keep your policy" a blatant lie, who have to get new policies at least double the price of the previous policies that were cancelled because of ObamaKare, with higher deductables because of ObamaKare, with different restrictions, that make "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" a blatant lie.
These 5,000,000 cancelled policies are just the beginning due to the insurance companies preparing for the individual mandate to be enforced. When the individual mandate is enforced, that number will probably double.
Now, let's talk about the tsunami of cancelled policies when the employer mandate will be enforced. It will be cheaper for corporations to dump their employees onto the ObamaKare fiasco than to continue providing insurance for them. As a result of ObamaKare, relatively few corporations will continue to provide health insurance to their employees.
Today, corporations are routinely dropping dependents from employee coverage because of ObamaKare.

ObamaKare is a disaster. ObamaKare will caused more people to lose their health insurance than it was intended to cover. It was originally intended to give 50 million uninsured people coverage. The policy death toll from ObamaKare will be in excess of 100 million people losing their health insurance and being dumped onto ObamaKare and having Obama's Death Panel decide whether they will live or die.

Like the exact text in the ObamaKare law states: "The Secretary will determine..." everything.

You're just mad I proved you wrong again...with a source. Something of which you have yet to post.

Both GM and Chrysler should have filed for protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

The benefits afforded under Chapter 11 to companies whose assets are protected and whose fixed payments on most liabilities are suspended while they attempt to reorganize in bankruptcy.

Another sometimes overlooked benefit for firms in bankruptcy is their ability to borrow substantial amounts of funds for continued operations under what is known as debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing. This aspect of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code gives the provider of funds a super-priority status over all existing unsecured claims and is almost always accompanied by specific collateral, such that the chance of a lender losing any of its investment is quite remote

But this president claims to be anti-corporation while sitting as the CEO of GM after bailing them out with our money.

The governments money is what you owe in taxes.
If you get a reduction in taxes, does your wallet have more money than if you got no deduction?
It's a simple question.
This is where you're all fucked up.
To begin with, the person/corporation/entity/what ever is the owner of the money until that money is transferred to some other person/corporation/entity/what ever, in this case the government.
The government can assess a tax. This money does not belong to the government until that tax is paid. If the government assesses a tax, then excuses part of that tax, the end fucking result, you fucking moron, is a lower tax assessed.

You primary assumption is communist. Here, the government doesn't own the money by default and allows a certain portion of that money to be kept by people/corporations.

Here's how it works in a capitalist system: The private entity owns the money. The government levies a tax. The private entity pays the tax. Then, and only after the tax has been collected, the government owns that money. Until the tax has been collected, the government doesn't ownshit.

Pay particular attention to the FACT that when the government allows a tax exemption, that is a tax exemption. The result is a lower tax paid.

A SUBSIDY IS MONEY GIVEN BY THE GOVERNMENT.
A lower tax rate is not a subsidy because... you may need to write this down... THE GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER RECEIVED THE MONEY TO GIVE IT BACK. The government lowered the tax. That's all.

There are no subsidies to AMERICAN oil companies. The only oil company Obama subsidises is Petrobras, the national oil company of Brasil. Subsidies to American oil companies is an urban legend. There is no such thing as a subsidy to an American oil company.

You don't mind being called a moron in this particular instance, do you?

Because the Democrats believed they were there - the UN believed they were there - and intelligence believed they were there.

Saddam had plenty of time to get rid of them. Now Syria has them...or did...supposedly.

You just never pay attention, do you? Must be nice to be so insulated from reality.

But don't let me disturb you.
