"Check out that runaway Obamacare enrollment over on EnrollMaven.com !

In Arkansas, its up to 1,404! Well along the way to the state’s goal of 51,000 paid enrollees by the end of March.

In Delaware, it’s up to 793! The state’s goal is 35,000.

In New Hampshire, they hit 1,569. Getting close to that goal of 19,000!

In West Virginia, it’s up to 775! They’ll hit their goal of 24,000 in no time!

In Hawaii, all the way up to 444! That goal of 9,000 is in sight!

wow. you people are more callous with lives than I thought!
Compare Bush's record of funding veterans to this:

WASHINGTON -- The majority of the U.S. Senate sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Friday, urging his "direct and public involvement" in fixing the disability claims backlog plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"In the last four years, the number of claims pending for over a year has grown by over 2000%, despite a 40% increase in the VA's budget," read the letter, which was signed by 67 senators, led by Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.)....Solving this problem is critical for veterans of all generations. We need direct and public involvement from you to establish a clear plan to end the backlog once and for all."

This administration is too busy creating this president's legacy.

Homer is so open minded he doesn't want to know that the birther controversy started with Hilary due to something that was posted in Obama's bio in his book.

Don't confuse Homer with the facts.

From their website.
The restaurant industry is the most labor-intensive industry in the country. Our technology can save the industry $10 billion per year in wages
PRODUCTFast food doesn’t have to have a negative connotation anymore. With our technology, a restaurant can offer gourmet quality burgers at fast food prices.Our alpha machine frees up all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant.It does everything employees can do except better:
It slices toppings like tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible.
Our next revision will offer custom meat grinds for every single customer. Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem.
Also, our next revision will use gourmet cooking techniques never before used in a fast food restaurant, giving the patty the perfect char but keeping in all the juices.
It’s more consistent, more sanitary, and can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour.
The labor savings allow a restaurant to spend approximately twice as much on high quality ingredients and the gourmet cooking techniques make the ingredients taste that much better.
We will launch the first restaurant chain that profitably sells gourmet hamburgers at fast food prices.See For YourselfOur current device can pay for itself in less than one year, making equipment sales a second path for us.Our current machine can be used in other restaurants, convenience stores, food trucks, and even in vending applications. The domain expertise of our team and the devices that we will build in the near future are going to allow restaurants to offer patrons a dramatically better experience.
Our team was trained in mechanical engineering, control systems, and physics at top tier institutions: Berkeley, Stanford, UCSB, and USC. We draw from work experience that includes cutting edge firms such as: Tesla, NASA, Semiconductor Technology Associates, etc. Our investors are tier one venture firms and we are advised by the best in the restaurant industry.
We are looking for individuals with the best restaurant experience to join us. Our engineering team is also looking for talent:(1) Mechatronics EngineerWe are using clever and unique designs to dramatically improve the quality of our food.Job Description:- Work with our friendly and incisive team to find effective and elegant solutions to market needs.- Apply your extensive knowledge of mechanisms, principles of machine design, electronics, and sensors to solve challenging problems.(2) Machine Vision SpecialistBeauty is in the eye of the beholder, especially when you are looking at our burgers through a super precise computer running complex algorithms to make sure that everyone’s food is, well beautiful. There are additional, creative products that we will be doing with machine vision but can’t talk about it here!
We want to help the people who may transition to a new job as a result of our technology the best way we know how: education.Our goal is to offer discounted technical training to any former line cook of a restaurant that uses our device. We will certainly need more engineers to design new devices and technicians to service a growing line of automated restaurant solutions. These are the minds that can do this job. If you are a vocational training institution, please contact us here.The issue of machines and job displacement has been around for centuries and economists generally accept that technology like ours actually causes an increase in employment. The three factors that contribute to this are 1. the company that makes the robots must hire new employees, 2. the restaurant that uses our robots can expand their frontiers of production which requires hiring more people, and 3. the general public saves money on the reduced cost of our burgers. This saved money can then be spent on the rest of the economy. We take these issues very seriously so please feel free to tell us how we can help with this transition.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Like these libs?

Some big celebrities are among the beneficiaries: taxpayer-funded farm subsidies for NBA star Scottie Pippen and billionaire media titan Ted Turner.

Superstar Jon Bon Jovi paid only $100 in property taxes last year on his extensive N.J. real estate holdings because he "raises bees" on it and gets farm subsidies.

Pictures: Jon Bon Jovi

Bruce "the Boss" Springsteen gets farm subsidies for leasing property to an organic farmer and Quincy Jones, who produced the top-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson's "Thriller," got a $25,000 award from the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts for his contribution to music.

Being a tight wad with your own money does not make you a fiscal conservative.

Show us the way. As a fiscal conservative and self proclaimed presidential candidate, tell us what Homer would cut from from the current government. And don't bloviate like Congress does, get specific. Or you know what, it's time for your break....take ten.... and we can get to this some other time.
