Confessions of a Columnist

In ancient Sanskrit, the word “pundit” meant “wise man” or “religious sage.” In modern English, it means “often wrong, rarely accountable.” There are ways that those of us who scribble about politics can avoid living down to that reputation — by keeping our predictions vague (it worked for Nostradamus), by sticking to sure things (I told you Herman Cain wouldn’t be elected president), or by deploying weasel words like “it’s possible that ...” at every opportunity. But time, chance and fallibility eventually make false prophets of us all.

A “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 of the United States
Constitution (the “Natural Born Citizen Clause”). Plaintiff Hillary Clinton sought a TRO prohibiting Obama from running for President and enjoining the DNC from selecting Obama as the nominee.
Plaintiff Hillary Clinton also sought declaratory and injunctive relief in the form of a declaration that Obama is ineligible to run for the office of President under the United States Constitution and a permanent injunction enjoining Obama from running for President and enjoining the DNC from making Obama the Democratic presidential nominee.

PHILIP J.BERG, IS NOT, HILLARY CLINTON "DUMB ASS". Just exactly where in your exhibits is Hillary Clinton listed as a "plaintiff".

If you want to list him as a creditable source, you will have to accept the fact that he also brought a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) lawsuit charging president George W. Bush with complicity in the 9/11 attacks.

Geez, you are stupid.

Random post and Q&A...

'Has anyone ever figured out what the cost to taxpayers would have been if the gov’t just paid the health insurance premiums for people that actually want health insurance but cannot afford it?
JetBlast on December 28, 2013 at 1:08 PM'

Answer...
"Good question. No real answer since no one really knows the cost of ACA nor how many people would be in the Target group or what the cost would be for each individual.

There are a few facts that can be used and a few some what “safe” assumption that can be made. So here goes a best queses.

Total US population = 316,668,567
15% uninsured = 47,500,285
7% not buy choice = 22,166,799
3.5% would = 11,083,399

ACA cost to date are $3-6 Trillion dollars
Average cost of insurance is about $5,800/year, premiums plus deducts.

These are generally amounts that the government has been putting out with the exception of the ACA Costs which are what is generally floating through the blogs and the news.

You can set this up your self on a spread sheet and as the news changes you can see the cost changes.

Any case here goes. Target population of 11,083,399 X annual cost $5,800 = Annual cost $64,283,719,101. That’s $64.2 Billion or about 1%-2% of what the first year ACA costs are.

You can use what ever numbers you like from what ever source you can find and the answer is going to be some variation of the same that ACA is very, very, costly.

lest we forget they have the TOP, TOP people on this and the are not accountable for any of it'

lack of?
so when are you going to start citing something that proves anything?
but you can't. citing right wing myths can be really tough on the ego.
YOUR article itself FAILED to provide adequate PROOF and makes some wild stretches. This is excerpts from a book someone is trying to sale.

The article/book also fails to acknowledge documented KNOW facts that were presented during the hearings.

Pretty simple concept.

You are as hopeless as trying explain something to USAsince.

So your contention is that the prostate part of the physical exam is FREE because doctors enjoy looking up your dumb ass for a brain.
You really are stupid.
doctors charge the same for an office visit physical regardless of whether or not they check the prostate...

just as they charge the same whether they spend two minutes or twenty minutes with the patient.....

just as they will charge the same under ObamaKKKare whether you see a real physician or an amateur like a physician's assistant...

nothing is free.....

Birther row began with Hillary Clinton

False rumours about Mr Obama’s background first surfaced in 2004, in Illinois, where he was a state senator. Andy Martin, a perennial local candidate and litigant, claimed Mr Obama was secretly Muslim.

Related theories — including that he was radicalised in a “madrassa” in Indonesia — developed after Mr Obama entered the national stage with a speech to the Democratic National Convention later that year.

In 2005, Mr Obama went to Washington as the junior US senator for Illinois. The rumours about him persisted, but seemingly failed to take hold among political insiders and voters alike.

It was not until April 2008, at the height of the intensely bitter Democratic presidential primary process, that the touch paper was properly lit.

An anonymous email circulated by supporters of Mrs Clinton, Mr Obama’s main rival for the party’s nomination, thrust a new allegation into the national spotlight — that he had not been born in Hawaii.

Forgotten truth you lose again your side calling obama illegitimate: Hillary Clinton is, in fact, the original "birther"... You dumbass old woman were second...

Michelle Obama believes Kenya is Obama's homeland you retard...

It's the culture....

IMO, it is very strange for someone to throw such a hissy fit over the misspelling of the word "prostate". That person is obviously hanging on to reality by a thin thread.
