Wrong again stupid! Liberal women like Sandra Fluke don't want their contraception paid for by the government; they want it included in their health insurance which they're paying for.
By the way Carol if you want to blame Bill Clinton then what about Newt Gingrich, John Ensign and Herman Cain?
The only one who's hopelessly confused is you, as usual.
liberal women like Sandra Fluke don't believe in choice....

Oh so presented with the truth, you bring up race.
Many many people go to college through scholarships & loans that have nothing o do with Affirmative Action. And for you racist f*cks out there,even black people.
Barack Obama is way way way smarter than you.
No, he's not. I know what's right for this country. EVERYTHING he's attempted has FAILED. That doesn't indicate, to me, he's smart, at all.(enter, Bush)

Columbia? He was average or below, all through school. He was lazy and drug addled. Even with scholarships, grants and loans, he could not have met the academic requirements of Columbia without Affirmative Action - augmented with a sprinkling of well placed lies.

There may be pockets of housing here or there which are on the rebound, but overall, the U.S. housing market is still in the dumps.
You don't have the foggiest idea of what you're talking about.

Housing Recovery Seems Still on Track

The housing market, one of the main drivers of the economic recovery, continues to gain strength despite the drag of rising mortgage rates and other economic headwinds, but some analysts are worried that it may slow in the months ahead.

For now, though, builders are building, sellers are selling and mortgage lenders are less nervous about extending credit to buyers.

The heady price increases in the first half of the year slowed a bit in July, according to data released on Tuesday.

But in the face of pent-up demand and emboldened consumers, home values were still heading upward at a healthy pace, rising 12.4 percent from July 2012 to July 2013, according to the Standard & Poor’s Case/Shiller home price index, which tracks sales in 20 cities.

A separate index of mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac showed an 8.8 percent gain in prices over the same time period.

Two national homebuilders, Lennar and KB Home, reported significant revenue growth and profits in the third quarter. Lennar said its third-quarter earnings rose 39 percent over the third quarter of last year, and KB said its profit had increased sevenfold.

“We still have a lot of young people that are going to start moving out and forming households and we’re going to have to find housing for them,” said Patrick Newport, the chief United States economist for IHS Global Insight.“There are shortages of homes just about everywhere.”

So who doesn't know what they're talking about?? ROFLMAO

You really should stay away, bedpanman. All you do is prove how ignorant you are.

When you allow the government to decide how best to spend YOUR money, you've surrendered. With O-care, they have effectively taken control of every aspect of your life. Maybe you're willing to trade self-determination for a monthly stipend and third-rate health care, but I'm not.
The ACA only says you have to have decent health insurance or pay a fee.

You can buy it where ever you want.

So you didn't have health insurance before the ACA?

All that really matters is the total amount one earns.
I knew a fellow who waited banquet tables at Disney and Convention Center events and also had an Amway business. He's was earning over $80K during late 70's and living at Bay Hill.
you are wrong again, pal....an hourly wage is not a salary......

and if the minimum wage is increased, many of the working welfare cases will cut back their hours so that they can remain on welfare......

just as those earning $94,200 per year will refuse raises so that they can remain on ObamaKKKare welfare....

It is interesting to note that the Jesse Sharpton's and the Magic Negro's have absolutely no shame level that will shut them up.
Jesse baby was caught funneling money to his L.A. love child momma and it doesn't shut him up. His son and daughter-in-law go to prison for theft and it doesn't shut him up. Jesse baby is caught telling racist jokes and it doesn't shut him up.
Al Sharpton has been repeatedly caught fomenting racist activities, lying his blackazz off and he still plods along hurting people for money.
The Magic Negro blatantly lies repeatedly about Obamacare, his past and his true political bent and shows no shame whatsoever.
"You can't keep a good man down" has been perverted into "You can't keep a racist pig down".
Both sides have their fair share of personal scandals. We just can't point to the ones on one side to make them right on the other.

Now that you've spent hours claiming the States can have laws that contradict the US Constitution, here is a lesson in who's really in charge, you simple minded moron!!
----------
http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/supremacy_clau...
SUPREMACY CLAUSE
Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution is commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause. It establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions.
""ARTICLE VI
All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.
----------
Paragraph 2./ This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
----------
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
----------
the Constitution is supreme over any and all laws and treaties passed by the States.
End of story. End of dumb white racist.
I wonder if you're equally proud of your abject ignorance.
ahhh...but apparently, there was this super-secret deal with the first congress and the states, or colonies, or perhaps the king of england...not sure which one started our nation, i guess...

it's hard to make shit up that is as funny as the what some of these whackos post here in all seriousness...

As I've said before, I'm a heathen. Not at all religious. But I realize millions of people are. I respect their beliefs and sympathize with their concerns. Any conservative candidate that dismisses them or openly criticizes them, is committing political suicide. It's a large segment of the population that can't be ignored, especially out of political correctness.
in order to win, a conservative candidate needs to be skillful enough to acknowledge these people and then avoid the subject as much as possible.....

both Reagan and Bush were very good at this, neither identified as anti-abortion crusaders....

an overtly religious candidate like Santorum or Huckabee is dead at the starting line....

medical care is rapidly becoming a two-tier class system......

Galt has a friend who recently needed to be transferred from one hospital to another for a critical procedure....the choices were a quality private hospital and a crummy county medical center.....the choice was made based on his insurance, not on the quality of the facility.......

fortunately for him, he had real insurance, not ObamaKKKare or Medicaid....
