Flack favors zero regulations for corporations because we all know we can trust corporations to do the right thing.

You have to understand "real dumb" is a typical liberal loon, he needs government to be the final authority, on health insurance, on the number of employees a private company must hire, the rate of pay private companies must offer, he is a firm believer that government should make all decisions. He is seeking a world that fits the boy failure, nobama's, dream, a world where the government controls all.
Peace
We am all depend on Eed to post a racial slur like a good little right whiner.

"The latest folly comes compliments of Medicare, which gave such poor oversight to its prescription coverage that it allowed $11.7 million in drug benefits to go to inmates from 2006 to 2010, according a report released Monday by the Health and Human Services inspector general."

I was listening to Andrew Napolitano last night talking about the new regulations issued by the IRS. After the CBO reported there will be fewer jobs in the future because of ObamaKare, the IRS issued a regulation stating small businesses must send to the IRS justification for any full time position they eliminate, and the IRS can act on it in accordance with their whim. I'm lookoing for the transcript.
So Judge Andy is too informed to know that this would only apply for those companies seeking the delay for companies between 50 & 100 employees and not all companies.

Cardinal Dolan's prayer at the end of the Democratic Convention:
Let us Pray.
Almighty God, father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, revealed to us so powerfully in your Son, Jesus Christ, we thank you for showering your blessings upon this our beloved nation. Bless all here present, and all across this great land, who work hard for the day when a greater portion of your justice, and a more ample measure of your care for the poor and suffering, may prevail in these United States. Help us to see that a society’s greatness is found above all in the respect it shows for the weakest and neediest among us.
We beseech you, almighty God to shed your grace on this noble experiment in ordered liberty, which began with the confident assertion of inalienable rights bestowed upon us by you: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Thus do we praise you for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it, life, without which no other rights are secure. We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected. Strengthen our sick and our elders waiting to see your holy face at life’s end, that they may be accompanied by true compassion and cherished with the dignity due those who are infirm and fragile.
We praise and thank you for the gift of liberty. May this land of the free never lack those brave enough to defend our basic freedoms. Renew in all our people a profound respect for religious liberty: the first, most cherished freedom bequeathed upon us at our Founding. May our liberty be in harmony with truth; freedom ordered in goodness and justice. Help us live our freedom in faith, hope, and love. Make us ever-grateful for those who, for over two centuries, have given their lives in freedom’s defense; we commend their noble souls to your eternal care, as even now we beg the protection of your mighty arm upon our men and women in uniform.
We praise and thank you for granting us the life and the liberty by which we can pursue happiness. Show us anew that happiness is found only in respecting the laws of nature and of nature’s God. Empower us with your grace so that we might resist the temptation to replace the moral law with idols of our own making, or to remake those institutions you have given us for the nurturing of life and community. May we welcome those who yearn to breathe free and to pursue happiness in this land of freedom, adding their gifts to those whose families have lived here for centuries.
We praise and thank you for the American genius of government of the people, by the people and for the people. Oh God of wisdom, justice, and might, we ask your guidance for those who govern us: President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Congress, the Supreme Court, and all those, including Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan, who seek to serve the common good by seeking public office. Make them all worthy to serve you by serving our country. Help them remember that the only just government is the government that serves its citizens rather than itself. With your grace, may all Americans choose wisely as we consider the future course of public policy.
And finally Lord, we beseech your benediction on all of us who depart from here this evening, and on all those, in every land, who yearn to conduct their lives in freedom and justice. We beg you to remember, as we pledge to remember, those who are not free; those who suffer for freedom’s cause; those who are poor, out of work, needy, sick, or alone; those who are persecuted for their religious convictions, those still ravaged by war.
And most of all, God Almighty, we thank you for the great gift of our beloved country.
For we are indeed “one nation under God,” and “in God we trust.”
So dear God, bless America. You who live and reign forever and ever.
Amen!

Facts about Americans defined as “poor” by the Census Bureau, all taken from various government reports and included “Understanding Poverty in the United States”:

—¸ Eighty percent of poor households have air conditioning. By contrast, in 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning.

—¸ Fully 92 percent of poor households have a microwave; two-thirds have at least one DVD player and 70 percent have a VCR.

—¸ Nearly 75 percent have a car or truck; 31 percent have two or more cars or trucks.

¸ Four out of five poor adults assert they were never hungry at any time in the prior year due to lack of money for food.

—¸ Nearly two-thirds have cable or satellite television.

—¸ Half have a personal computer; one in seven have two or more computers.

—¸ More than half of poor families with children have a video game system such as Xbox or PlayStation.

—¸ Just under half — 43 percent — have Internet access.

—¸ A third have a widescreen plasma or LCD TV.

—¸ One in every four has a digital video recorder such as TiVo.

As noted, TV newscasts about poverty in America usually picture the poor as homeless or as a destitute family living in an overcrowded, rundown trailer. The actual facts are far different:

—¸ At a single point in time, only one in 70 poor persons is homeless.

—¸ The vast majority of the houses or apartments of the poor are in good repair; only 6 percent are over-crowded.

—¸ The average poor American has more living space than the average non-poor individual living in Sweden, France, Germany or the United Kingdom.

—¸ Only 10 percent of the poor live in mobile homes or trailers; half live in detached single-family houses or townhouses, while 40 percent live in apartments.

—¸ Forty-two percent of all poor households own their home; on average, it’s a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage, and a porch or patio.

Maybe you were talking about yourself. We know you cut your hours to qualify for ObamaCare.

According to Flack, it's the water company's fault to think that the river water wasn't polluted with chemicals.

Not the company that kept the chemical in an old tank with a faulty containment system.

Or maybe they could take advantage of the free education, student loans etc., and get a flucking job. They might have to foot their own bill for failures though.

By Kelly Riddell-The Washington Times Monday, February 10, 2014

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will step down this year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in the magazine’s Feb. 17 edition.

In a feature article, Mr. Holder said he plans on staying in his position “well into” the year.

Last November, Mr. Holder, the first black attorney general, told CBS News he didn’t have “any plans” to step down.

Mr. Holder has made voting rights the test case of his tenure, the New Yorker reported. He has been a vocal critic of the Supreme Court case that invalidated key parts of the Voting Rights Act and has supported Congressional action to renew and revise the law.

During his five years as the nation’s top law enforcement officer, Mr. Holder has also weighed in on other controversial Supreme Court decisions. Mr. Holder said he wouldn’t defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court and over the weekend announced the Department of Justice’s plans to give same-sex couples the same rights in the federal legal system as married heterosexual couples, regardless of whether a state recognizes same sex marriage.
