Barack Obama, our next President

Well, I'm not a congresswoman or a senator. I am for single payer healthcare and dismantling of insurance companies altogether. They are and have been gauging their customers forever.
Single payer, paid through taxation, no copays, no deductibles, not attached to employment. It's the only way to go.
The people who can't qualify for Medicaid because of Rick Scott will have to go to the ER, and their credit ratings will go down because they can't afford to pay. They will have to file bankruptcy to eliminate these debts. There is no winning here for you stupid republicans.
Obamacare will fix everything. Barack Hussein Obama: "Lie of the Year" ... LOL

Harry Reid...

'How Did Harry Reid Become Rich?'

'The problem, for Harry Reid, is that since he graduated college, there hasn’t been a lot of time outside of government service. Reid was elected to the State Assembly in 1966 and in the past 43 years (when Reid went from 27 years old to 70 – and your humble correspondent went from 2 to 45), the only gap in public service was the two years in the mid-70&#8242;s between his term as Lt. Governor and his service on the Nevada Gaming Commission. And during that time he ran for Mayor of Las Vegas, leaving little time to build up a fortune in the private sector.'

Hi Jane,
would you fk Roger Ailes for $100 a week?
How much do you get? Are you worried about competition? Does the husband avoid the plantation in Boca too much?

I feel bad for your sister-in-law. The NY Post, a rightwing rag of course, has been writing about her. And finally the limousine libs who run the city schools are looking into her "career."

Another example of the Inmates Running the Asylum
It IS the culture:

No books, no clue at city’s worst school

This principal runs a school of “no.”

Students at PS 106 in Far Rockaway, Queens, have gotten no math or reading and writing books for the rigorous Common Core curriculum, whistleblowers say.

The 234 kids get no gym or art classes. Instead, they watch movies every day.

“The kids have seen more movies than Siskel and Ebert,” a source said.

The school nurse has no office equipped with a sink, refrigerator or cot.

The library is a mess:“Nothing’s in order,” said a source.“It’s a junk room.”

No substitutes are hired when a teacher is absent — students are divvied up among other classes.

A classroom that includes learning-disabled kids doesn’t have the required special-ed co-teacher.

About 40 kindergartners have no room in the three-story brick building. They sit all day in dilapidated trailers that reek of “animal urine,” a parent said; rats and squirrels noisily scamper in the walls and ceiling.

NO GYM OR ART: With no phys-ed or art classes, students are left to watch movies, including “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “Fat Albert.”

NO SPACE: Without enough space in the main brick building, kindergartners are taught in what sources say are rat-infested trailers.

Principal Marcella Sills is a frequent no-show; The Post found she missed every day of school last week but one.

And the principal — Marcella Sills, who joined PS 106 nine years ago — is a frequent no-show, sources say.

Sills did not come to school last Monday.

On Tuesday, she showed up at 3:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, The Post found her at home in Westbury, LI, all day before emerging at 2:50 p.m.— school dismissal time. Wearing a fur coat, she took her BMW for a spin.

She showed up at school Thursday, but not Friday.

When Sills, 48, does go to work, it’s rarely before 11&#8201;a.m.— and often hours later, say sources familiar with her schedule.

“She strolls in whenever she wants,” one said.

The school hasn’t had a payroll secretary in years.

A Department of Education spokesman said Sills was required to report her absences and tardiness to District 27 Superintendent Michelle Lloyd-Bey but would not say whether Sills did so last week.

Lloyd-Bey did not return a call. Sills hung up on a reporter.

When she is out, an assistant principal is left in charge. Yet Sills, who gets a $128,207 salary, also pockets overtime pay —$2,900 for 83 hours in 2011, the latest available records show.

“This school is a complete s-&#8202;-thole, but nobody in a position of power comes to investigate.

No one cares,” a community member said.

PS 106 families hope their cries for attention bring newly installed Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña to the rescue, saying they can’t recall any prior DOE leader visiting the remote school.

She would find it sinking, they say.

More alarming, the teachers have gotten no curricula since Sandy. Last February, the DOE announced several new options, including “Go Math” for grades K-5, and “ReadyGen” or the state Education Department’s “Core Knowledge” for English language arts. The books cover the Common Core standards, skills that kids should master at each level.

But five months into the school year, PS 106 classes still don’t have the books or teacher’s guides.

“They have no reading program, no math program,” a source said, adding Sills blames outside administrators for not sending materials.

The only thing that has been changed is the priority of enforcement of the law. If Federal prosecutors want to challenge California's and Washington's new laws, they are free to do so.

Since you apparently live in a dysfunctional family that income is not a shared commodity doesn't mean all families act like that.
