We Told You So!
Opee and the 'First Diner' have ruined everything sensible in this country. What we have seen these past 5 years if leadership from behind the crack pipe. They are buffoons and We Told You So! Now there is evidence of their incompetence all over everything Obama touches. We are better when they are off fighting with each other and Opee is distracted from ruling everyone.

70% of those who have signed up are signing up for Medicaid, reach into your pocket and dig deep.
That really is an exaggeration.

"The White House has propagated numbers regarding sign-ups for the Affordable Care Act, claiming that the program is responsible for 4 million people gaining coverage through Medicaid expansion; 3 million enrollees in their early 20s who remain on their parents’ policies; and 2 million who have purchased insurance through the exchanges." So, your 70% claim doesn't exactly hold water.

Besides that, many of those who signed up for Medicaid would have done so whether or not there was any "Obamacare".

"In November, 1.7 million people were determined eligible for Medicaid". Fifty Five percent of those (960,000) were in states that did not expand medicaid. Consequently, the Affordable Care Act had no effect on their eligibility.

In just nine months Pope Francis has almost trebled the size of crowds attending papal audiences, Masses and other events in Vatican City.
Before 13 March last year, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was expecting to spend his next Christmas in retirement - in an old people's home in the Buenos Aires district of Flores, where he was born 77 years ago.
But now he carries the hopes and fears of more than a billion Roman Catholics.
What explains this suddenly renewed interest in Catholicism? What need is Pope Francis meeting in people?
Nine months ago the Church was beset by allegations of scandal and mismanagement in its bureaucracy and its bank, its reputation besmirched by the sexual abuse scandal.
"The dominant narrative about the Catholic Church today is 'rock star Pope takes the world by storm'," says John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter.
"If that's not a revolution, at least at the level of perception, then we have never seen one."
The Pope is thinking of us and loves us and is not leaving us alone”
End Quote Sister Teresa A nun of the Daughters of St Anne
The revolution has been forged in gestures, such as the Pope's decision to include a Muslim woman when he washed the feet of young offenders last Easter, and his instinctive hug for a man whose face was badly disfigured by disease.
His refusal to live in the papal apartment or to wear the regal clothes that go with his office has also caught the public imagination.
So has the way he picks up the phone to call people out of the blue.
Sister Teresa, a nun of the Daughters of St Anne, was teaching a class of 11-year-olds at her school in Casal di Principe when her mobile phone rang.
"I saw a very long number," she says. "A voice said,'I'm Pope Francis', and I said,'You must be joking, I don't believe it'. He laughed, and said 'I AM, Father Bergoglio'."
Pope Francis called to bless the nuns' campaign against the dumping of toxic waste, touched by photographs they had sent him, each one depicting a mother holding the picture of a dead child.
She said the conversation had left her feeling "serene, because the Pope is thinking of us and loves us and is not leaving us alone".
But not all Roman Catholics welcome Pope Francis's new approach.
Vatican bureaucracy
Some traditionalists say his unwillingness to talk much about the Church's beliefs on issues such as abortion, contraception and homosexuality cedes too much ground to secular values.
Continue reading the main story
* On homosexuality: "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?"
* On abortion: "It is not 'progressive' to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life... This defence of unborn life is closely linked to the defence of each and every other human right."
* On hunger: "With all the food that is left over and thrown away, we could feed so many. If we were able to stop wasting and start recycling food, world hunger would diminish greatly."
Kishore Jayabalan, director of a Christian research organisation, the Acton Institute, says others are uneasy about the effect of the Pope's humble style.
"Some of the more traditionalist critics of Pope Francis are worried about the less regal style of the papacy - the Pope, as a rule, has the trappings of a monarchy," he says.
But the "Francis effect" will not be limited to changes in style and emphasis.
Pope Francis has recruited eight cardinals to help him reform the Vatican bureaucracy and has acted to address mismanagement in the Vatican bank.
Now the Pope could be considering a far bigger step.
"I think the most profound change the Pope is aiming for is revamping the Synod of Bishops," says Robert Mickens, of Catholic journal The Tablet.
"It was set up in the 1960s and has been used to rubber-stamp whatever the Pope wanted to do.

Pope Francis has issued his strongest condemnation yet of abortion, calling it a "horrific" symptom of a "throwaway culture" that placed too little value on human life.

He said it was was "frightful" to think about early pregnancy terminations.

Since his election in March, the pope has not spoken out against abortion as sternly as his predecessors.

He made the comments is his yearly "State of the World" address to diplomats accredited to the Vatican.

"It is horrific even to think that there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day," he said in part of the speech that addressed the rights of children around the world.

"Unfortunately, what is thrown away is not only food and dispensable objects, but often human beings themselves, who are discarded as unnecessary."

The BBC's Alan Johnston in Rome says that there has been concern in some quarters of Roman Catholicism that the pope has not been putting the church's view on abortion forcefully enough.

Our correspondent says that the Pope's stance favouring mercy over condemnation has made more conservative Roman Catholics uneasy, but they will welcome his latest remarks.

Some months ago Pope Francis acknowledged that he had said little on issues like abortion and contraception.

But he explained that he felt it was not necessary to talk about these controversial questions "all the time".

"Don't you know anything about investing? Of course people are putting their money in the market because it's guaranteed to grow because of the feds. Conversely, if those investors found out that the fed was going to stop pumping money in, they would sell everything they own, and that's why the market is going to crash.

The stock market is not growing because of corporate earnings and profits. That's why it's phony. This is nearly the same debate that was had during the housing bubble. The Democrats said there was nothing wrong with Fanny or Freddy--nothing but hype from the Republicans, nothing to worry about because they have control over the lending process, and look what happened. "

I hope you learned something.

Class ......something.
Minor league baseball is a hierarchy of professional baseball leagues in the Americas that compete at levels below Major League Baseball (MLB) and provide opportunities for player development and a way to prepare for Major League Baseball (MLB). All of the minor leagues are operated as independent businesses. Most are members of the umbrella organization known as Minor League Baseball (MiLB), which operates under the Commissioner of Baseball within the scope of organized baseball. Several leagues, known as independent baseball leagues, do not have any official links to Major League Baseball.

Except for the Mexican League, teams in the organized minor leagues are generally independently owned and operated but are directly affiliated with one major league team through a standardized Player Development Contract (PDC). These leagues also go by the nicknames the "farm system," "farm club," or "farm team(s)" because of a joke passed around by major league players in the 1930s when St. Louis Cardinals' general manager Branch Rickey formalized the system, and teams in small towns were "growing players down on the farm like corn."

Major and Minor League teams may enter into a PDC for a two- or four-year term and may re-affiliate at the expiration of a PDC term, though many relationships are renewed and endure for extended time periods. For example, the Omaha Storm Chasers (formerly the Omaha Royals) have been the Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals since the Royals joined the American League in 1969, but the Columbus Clippers changed affiliations from the New York Yankees to the Washington Nationals in 2007 and are now affiliated with the Cleveland Indians. A few minor league teams are directly owned by their major league parent club, such as the Springfield Cardinals, owned by the St. Louis Cardinals, and all of the Atlanta Braves' affiliates except the Lynchburg Hillcats. Minor League teams that are owned directly by the major league Club do not have PDCs with each other and are not part of the reaffiliation shuffles that occur every other year.

Today, 19 affiliated minor baseball leagues operate with 243 member clubs in large, medium, and small towns, as well as the suburbs of major cities, across the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Venezuela.[1] Several more independent leagues operate in the United States and Canada.

Fascinating, does nothing to change my mind regarding this disaster called Oblamakare, which will be the most expensive disaster this country has ever seen. Millions will suffer, however I hold out hope that control being handed over to the republicans in the Senate in November may somehow ameliorate this train wreck. Or even completely abolish it.
