Oprah's Book Club 2.0 has a new novel to add to its ranks in 2014 -- and it's a book Oprah loved so much, she decided to select it as the third pick for Oprah's Book Club 2.0 before she had even finished reading it.
The Invention of Wings is a powerful novel written by Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Lives of Bees.
"It is going to 'wow' you," Oprah says in the video above. "I think you're going to love this book because it is layered, it is gripping, it's historical and based on the real-life Grimkes from pre-war Charleston, South Carolina."

The Dems did! It wasn't until the Reps gained control of both houses that US citizens of Japanese descent were given retributions for false imprisonment.
Son, many had their businesses and lands and homes taken away and never returned after the war.

And it's not 'retribution' but 'restitution' you twit!

'I just instantly burst into tears': Medical worker finally gets insurance on Obamacare website
Maggie Fox NBC News

6 hours ago

JoAnn and Eric Smith of Clearwater, Fla., were able to sign up for health insurance on the federal exchange Monday after months of trying.
It took two months, weekly visits to the jammed-up federal website and a half-dozen phone calls, but JoAnn Smith finally got health insurance Monday. It’ll only cost her $3.19 a month to cover herself and her husband.

“I just instantly burst into tears,” she says.

Smith started working on getting insurance even before the federal website, , opened Oct. 1, pre-registering to get a headstart on the process. But, like millions of other Americans who tried, she was stymied by the website’s glitches.

She told NBC News her story last week, and as of Friday, a week after the federal website was supposed to have been much improved, Smith still could not get all the way through the process.

Smith, a 60-year-old medical transcriptionist in Clearwater, Fla., must use the federal website to buy health insurance because Florida opted not to run its own. She’s been without health insurance for years and had been looking forward to getting subsidized coverage for herself and her husband Eric, 56, who’s unemployed.

The 2010 Affordable Care Act aims to get health insurance to the 16 percent of Americans who don’t have any by helping some buy health insurance on new websites, and by widening Medicaid benefits to others. People have until Dec. 23 to sign up for health insurance that starts on the first possible day, Jan. 1. They have until March 31 to sign up and avoid paying a tax.

Smith’s employer doesn’t provide health insurance.“They took a vote at the company and people wanted more money in their pockets,” she says. And business has been thin.“I have had four paycuts in one year,” says Smith, who estimates she will earn $23,000 this year for her 40-hour a week job.

This makes her eligible for a hefty federal subsidy.

It wasn’t easy to arrange. Smith says she called the federal call center several times over the weekend, trying to get signed up.“Every day last week I called them,” she says.“Yesterday morning I called early and there was like a 20-minute wait.”

So she waited until Monday morning.

“This morning the most loveliest of helpers answered the phone,” Smith told NBC News later Monday.“She said there was a mistake on original application, in that it said I was eligible for workplace insurance. She re-did the whole thing in record time and I don’t have to copy my paystubs and get a letter from work.”

Smith chose a silver-level plan from Humana, and said it was “totally mind-blowing” to see the $3.19 monthly premium, after a federal subsidy.“So we were just about good to go and the system went down again,” she says.

She called back an hour or so later, and her application took just seconds to complete. All she has to do now is confirm her payment and eligibility with Humana, her new insurance provider.

“I am kind of afraid to call them because I feel like it’s a trick,” Smith confesses.“I am afraid I will call and they will say ‘JoAnn who?’”

Federal health officials say they'll report sometime in mid-December on how many people were able to sign up for health insurance in November. One source has estimated it was only about 100,000.

Smith isn't the only one struggling to get signed up. On Tuesday morning, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she got enrolled. "After 3 days, on and off, of browser glitches & frustration, I believe I'm enrolled in the DC healthcare exchange," she tweeted.

Murkowski, a Republican, is one of several members of Congress signing up for coverage on the exchanges, even though they have employer-sponsored coverage as federal employees, so they can experience what their constituents do.

Speaking of Colonel Klink, what's up Wilhelm from Germany (AKA, Grey Ghost)?

Are you going to screw up again and post from the mainland like you did last week, clown?

I must admit, your acting like a clown fits better than when you posted as Grey Ghost and tried to make valid arguments.

Good points. Take a look at Washington State for instance;
Over 150,000 Washington residents have signed up for Medicaid
About 61,000 have signed up for private insurance but, 43,000 who signed up for private insurance have not completed all the steps to get private insurance and that includes no payments for the insurance. In a nutshell only about 9% of those applying have obtained private health insurance.
Pretty much the pattern as info isn't being passed on. There will be a lot of unhappy people come Jan 1 when they go to the ER and discover they have no insurance.

Obama's law days effective but brief
....Senior attorneys at the small firm where he worked say he was a strong writer and researcher....
Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors objected to his appointment because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

Since when did George Washington necklaced people or even hinted that this would be acceptable?
We don't know what George Washington's troops did. Terrible, terrible things happen during a revolt/war. Mandela did not necklace anyone nor did he support such mob justice. I would imagine (but, admittedly, don't know)that he would be sickened by it. Your kind did terrible things to southern blacks. Our soldiers massacred 200-500 innocent civilians in the villages of My Lai. It happens and we learn from our mistakes.

Didn't help her much when she decided to call the majority of Americans racist because they didn't support Obamacare.

Oprah had her day and now needs to sell off her tangible holdings before she looses her butt.

$3.19 a month for a premium? So just how much are we (taxpayers) paying for their insurance? You people really believe this won't bankrupt the country?

meanwhile, red state leaders continue to deny 30 million citizens ACA benefits!

One good note:

The local paper finally reports:


The media has finally found out:



$5 co pay Dr. visit, no carol skaaagg azzzzzz!

$10 RX co pay, no liar whatever skaaaag azzzzzzz!

$1400 out of pocket max per year!

WOW! real coverage now.

When will the red state idiots let 30 million citizens sign up for benefits?

"just go to the ER, gov pays anyway"

Ten times more than real healthcare.

So another neighbor signed up! Letter confirmation in mailbox yesterday:

"Thank you for choosing Blue Cross as your Medical Insurance provider. We received all the required information from the gov website. Your co pay cards and Dr. catalog are on the way. Welcome To Blue Cross."

Got a letter 3 days after applying!



$51 per month for full coverage.

whatever proved this number is real on Sunday.

That whacko even knows for sure now!




Republicans? Evil, greedy, selfish hypocrites all going to hell. LOL!

Obama is desperate, reaching back over a decade gasping for air:

WHITE HOUSE IS bringing in former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta, left, as the administration attempts to clean up the botched rollout of ObamaCare and looks to regain its footing ahead of midterm elections.
