interesting...given that Medicaid is now enrolling people with higher incomes, and presumably more assets, this may be part of the ObamaKKKare Communist plan....

He then went on to discuss Robertson’s views on race, which include his remarks about having grown in the pre-Jim Crow era, when “no [black people] were singing the blues.”
First a misquote.

""I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson told GQ writer Drew Margary. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... "

Goes back to what I said earlier that Phil's memories as a teenager is racist.

Memories can be racist to the crazy Progressives!

So what is GLAAD protesting?
GLAAD has ignored Baldwin directing homophobic rants at a person who was a known gay-GLAAD is a total joke in application of outrage.
GLAAD goes on a hissy fit because someone thought it was a sin. Meh
so will Phil be apologizing anytime soon?

people believed Baldwin when he apologized because he's not a religious nutjob.

and btw...

"Alec Baldwin still needs to take real action. MSNBC has sent a message that anti-gay slurs carry consequences, and that's an important standard to uphold at a time when LGBT people continue to face disproportionate levels of bullying and violence just because of who they are."

I realize some of you right whiners agree with the use of racial slurs but using the term "boy" in reference to a blasck an is a racoa; slur.
Yes he said it.
Second, if you are blaming Obama for the employment situation starting from his election then you must think a President takes office that day.
And yes, he did say that.
but the term he used was "boy president". Quit being a dumbass Dave.

WASHINGTON — Senator Harry Reid, the majority leader, was hospitalized Friday after falling ill in the morning, his office said.
Mr. Reid, who just turned 74, was going to remain in the hospital as a precaution. As a result, he will not be presiding over the Senate’s final day of business this year.
The Senate, which has been going through a tumultuous last two weeks as Republicans and Democrats feuded over nominations and legislation, resolved the stalemate late Thursday night and agreed to finish up on Friday. Senators will return in early January.
Mr. Reid’s spokesman, Adam Jentleson, said the senator’s condition had improved.
“Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital,” he said.“Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better.
“Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today.”
I wish Reid well but preferably in retirement where he won't create more problems for the rest of us.

Even if he’s not a Duck Dynasty viewer, Jon Stewart said on The Daily Show on Thursday, he still empathized with the “free speech absolutists” over at Fox News in supporting suspended star Phil Robertson.

“Look, I think what the guy said is ignorant,” Stewart said.“But I also have an inclination to support a world where saying ignorant sh*t on television doesn’t get you kicked off that medium.”

But Stewart also pointed out that the conservative uproar over having to “adhere to cultural norms of speech” only went so far, particularly around this time of the year, showing a flurry of clips where Fox News personalities took offense to the phrase “Happy Holidays” being used instead of “Merry Christmas,” culminating in Gretchen Carlson yelling something about red and white poinsettias before huffing,“Get over it.”

“Their belief in free speech doesn’t extend to the holidays, when the word Christmas is mandatory in word, thought, and plant,” Stewart said. He then mused that Fox wouldn’t pressure someone to say,“Merry Christmas,” before showing a clip of Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy cheerfully asking viewers to harass Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (D) over the use of a “holiday tree” in the statehouse by posting his office phone number, a contrast to the Duck Dynasty cast itself wishing viewers happy holidays.

Last night, Stephen Colbert came to the defense of embattled reality television star Phil Robertson.
“This is a terrible day for Americans,” Colbert said.“But admittedly, a pretty good day for ducks.”
“Why did A&E A-and-axe him?” he asked.“Because this good Christian man spoke his mind to GQ about the gays.”
After quoting Robertson’s remarks about preferring “vaginas” to “a man’s anus” because “there’s more there,” Colbert admits that “it’s not the eloquent speech you might expect from a backwoods Louisiana bird-murderer.”
He then went on to discuss Robertson’s views on race, which include his remarks about having grown in the pre-Jim Crow era, when “no [black people] were singing the blues.”
“For Pete’s sake,” Colbert said,“they got their own water fountain. In fact, they had it so good, white people pretended to be them.”

you can't have a serious discussion with folks who see the world through the lens of the right wing media.
but you can have a lot of fun.
Serious discussion when you want to insist calling something a sin should be censored and memories are racist.

You keep throwing out idiocy and then whine when this is pointed out!

Delusional much Carol? Nothing the President has done or even proposed is even remotely Marxist in fact like the ACA were originally Republican ideas.
You've once again proved that your stated non hatred of this man is a bald faced lie.
He's facing the wrath of people like you because he has a different skin color and has a funny sounding name.
The Republicans' version was much different than this president's. The private sector and private insurers were a huge part of the GOP's proposed plan.

Oddly enough, Democrats opposed it. It didn't demand big government intrusion and their incompetency.

Hmmm, you better run that pass the legal department first.

Phil was listing off what the Bible called sexual sins. If you weren't such a moron you would have understood that these are all sins including a female who sleeps around.
