I would guess the point O'Reilly was trying to make is that CVC is a business, they sell products and it is their right to determine what their product mix will be.

lol! Guessing, praying, hoping, wishing... the top three endeavours of reich wingers.

Working doesn't making the list and is surpassed by crying, complaining, bitching, hating and pretty much every other word in the English dictionary!

Have no idea why I picked that name out of thin air. Not a big fan of the super hero.
At least Lois Lane was an honest, no-nonsense character who tried to make a difference. But that name just popped into my head. For no real reason.
Should have picked Sacajawea. A real-life women who really did make a difference.
lol! No... no.... picking a comic book name is right up your alley son....

'A controversial new study has found that annual mammograms may not help reduce breast cancer deaths and may increase the number of women unnecessarily getting treated for breast cancer.
The Canadian study tracked almost 90,000 women for 25 years, and found that having an annual mammogram between the ages of 40 to 59 did not lower the chance of dying from breast cancer more than having a physical examination.'

this is a bullshit government study designed to ration care by suggesting that mammograms detect small tumors that aren't worth treating....

so keep the women ignorant and happy and save money in the process....

On Monday, the Obama administration announced that it again will delay aspects of the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate, the New York Times reports.

The employer mandate requires businesses with more than 50 employees working 30 hours or more per week to provide affordable health insurance coverage to workers or face fines (Pear, New York Times, 2/10).
Details of Delay

The Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service on Monday released a final rule that outlined the enforcement timeline of the mandate (Treasury release, 2/10). The changes included in the new regulations will affect both mid-sized and large companies.

Mid-sized businesses that employ 50 to 99 full-time workers will have another year to provide health insurance coverage to employees. These employers will not face fines for failing to provide coverage to workers until 2016, according to the final rule (Norman/Nather, Politico, 2/10).

Meanwhile, businesses that employ 100 or more full-time workers will be subject to the mandate starting in 2015. However, the final rule gives these employers more time to ramp up coverage. To avoid fines, large employers only need offer coverage to 70% of workers in 2015, rather than 95%. They will need to start offering coverage to 95% of workers in 2016 (Luhby, CNNMoney, 2/10).

The Department of Treasury in a news release noted that the rule change does not affect businesses that employ fewer than 50 individuals because the ACA does not require them to provide coverage to employees.

As a result, the employer mandate and the timeline change thus will affect only 4% of employers, according to the release (Treasury release, 2/10). However, the Washington Post notes that those businesses employ about 72% of all U.S. residents (Eilperin/Goldstein, Washington Post, 2/10).

Department of Treasury official Mark Mazur said, "While about 96% of employers are not subject to the employer responsibility provision, for those employers that are, we will continue to make the compliance process simpler and easier to navigate."

Despite Ocommiekare, it's predicted in 10 years 31 million will be uninsured, the same number that were uninsured before.
Demorat supporters are sooooooo stupid.
Fail.
Galt suspects that the number of people who were previously uninsured and have actually purchased insurance (not Medicaid) through ObamaKKKare is miniscule....and obviously a state secret

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin — who became the face of a desperate, drowning city during Hurricane Katrina — was convicted Wednesday on charges of accepting bribes from city contractors while in office.
Nagin, a DemoKKKrat who left office in 2010, was found guilty by a federal jury on 20 of 21 criminal counts, including bribery, conspiracy and wire fraud. Prosecutors said that Nagin accepted illegal gifts from contractors that began before Katrina hit, and continued afterward.

Just hope their customers don't buy a few six-packs and kill someone behind the wheel. Or an obese customer doesn't kill over in the parking lot after eating a few bags of their doughnuts.

It's caving to political correctness and hypocrisy. That's all it is.

Smoking is bad. Everyone gets that. But who gets to decide which personal choices are to be banned?

But have to say goodnight now.

Her Atmore, AL location has been flagged, so she has an IP Hider.
I already contacted Topix about it ... We'll see. She just confuses the thread.
That's her MO. And she wants to take the thread down, as she's stated.
