That's what you get for eating at someplace called, "Gator's Dockside." Why didn't they just get up and go to "Tommy's Trash Can" right next door? Who the fuck names a restaurant "Gator's," or, "The Pink Pig," or any of the thousands of idiotic names southerners come up with for fried food? Welcome to "SHOW US YOU PENIS DINER!!!"

I guess you think insurance companies never cancelled policies prior to 2010. I have news, Fletch. Insurance companies have been canceling policies & replacing them with more expensive policies for decades.

Well, they brought it to a restaurant to prepare for us, and they did a splendid job of it, they charge $14.99 a person to do it, includes sides as well.

I'm absolutely confident both George Washington AND Thomas Jefferson could be seen on nearly any night of the week in the late eighteenth century sampling the buffet at "Gator's Dockside." Sounds like just their kind of place.

Show us the evidence the White House had of any spontaneous demonstration in Benghazi.
Or, tell us why Obama lied for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.

Those are the only options you have.

By the way, you've never even read the Constitution, have you? Well, you've got another thing in common with Obama.

You have two choices:
Over 5 million people really didn't lose their insurance policies because of Obamacare.
OR...
Obama lied to 5 million people when he told them they'd be able to keep their policies.
(Hint: Over 5 million people really DID lose their policies because of Obamacare - and it's only because Obama delayed the employer mandate until after the 2014 elections that more people didn't.)

Of course you do - because Galt is wrong too this time.
But let's talk about your financial situation now. Just to change the subject.
First of all, I am all for Veterans benefits, as is the President and the First Lady, along with Vice President Biden and his wife.
However, I will say this; if you don't have any cash to put down, your payment may be more than you can afford, this is the reason that many people got into trouble, they signed loans, no down payment etc not realizing that there would be a balloon payment in 3 years and then they lost their homes.

One more time you lie. Lying is the one thing you do well. Here is a fact, you get mocked more times in a single day than I get mocked in a couple of months. The reason why you get mocked? You are a proven phoney and a liar. You show that trait with near every post you offer.

You're an idiot.

Let me interpret this for you, since you're too ignorant and uneducated to understand what these words written in plain English mean.

Correction: 52% of 1,644 adults polled nationwide are disappointed in Obama's presidency.
From your poll:(Seems Republicans are on the wrong side of most issues)
80% disapprove of the job Congress is doing.
56% support same-sex marriage.
66% support increasing the federal minimum wage.
50% think the health care law has good things in it but changes need to be made to make it work better.
65% do not think the U.S. should take the leading role in solving international conflicts.
Most think any plan to reduce the budget deficit should include both spending cuts and tax increases.
If you thought Obama would be a disaster before he became President, would you be disappointed? Obviously not.

Congress is controlled by Democrats and RINOs, and 80 percent disapprove.... HELLOOOOO.

Uh oh!!! A NY Times poll shows there's trouble in ObammyLand:

(1) The president's approval rating has once again slumped to 41 percent overall, with a majority disapproving of his performance. Independents disapprove (37/53). The president is underwater by double digits on foreign policy (39/48) and on the economy (38/57).

(2) Fully 79 percent of respondents describe their attitude toward Washington, DC's politics as "dissatisfied" or "angry." Just 10 percent of the country is "very satisfied" with the Obama presidency. Hope and change is long dead.

(3) Republicans hold a three-point lead (42/39) over Democrats on the generic Congressional ballot, and that's among registered voters, as opposed to likely, voters. Likely voters tend to lean more conservative. For reference, the final NYT/CBS poll before the 2010 Republican landslide showed Democrats leading on this question by one point.

(4) The new poll poll is D+7, which is an accurate reflection of the electorate composition over the last two presidential cycles. The 2010 midterm partisan turnout breakdown, by contrast, was D+0. National Journal argues that while conservative critiques of polling samples (including from yours truly) turned out to be misplaced in 2012, our previous arguments apply more aptly in the 2014 cycle. A plurality, 38 percent, of respondents in this poll categorize themselves as independents. Among that group, they lean GOP by nine points.

(5) On Obamacare, it seems as though this pollster has stopped asking the binary support/oppose question, on which the law has consistently been upside down by 12 to 25 points in virtually all polling. They're now giving respondents three options, asking whether they support the law and want it kept intact, whether they want to see changes to the law, or whether they favor full repeal. On that question, just six (!) percent pick the first option. Half of respondents want changes, and 42 percent back full repeal. Some liberals may try to spin this into evidence of public support for the law, which couldn't be further from the truth. When offered the choice between maintaining the current law or scrapping it, repeal wins easily. A substantial majority would prefer to return to the pre-Obamacare system than continue under the new law as it exists. And super-majorities oppose the individual mandate tax, which is the tent pole of the law. Make that popular "change," and Obamacare collapses. Among the few popular elements of Obamacare are protecting people with pre-existing conditions and allowing "children" to remain on their parents' plans through age 26 -- both of which will certainly be preserved in an eventual Republican alternative to the law.

(6) On immigration reform, 53 percent say most illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the US and apply for citizenship. 43 percent say they should either be allowed to stay without a path to citizenship, or should be removed from the country. On global warming, slightly more people say the phenomenon is naturally occurring or doesn't exist than believe it's caused by human activity. Fifty-six percent of respondents believe same-sex marriage should be legal (including 40 percent of Republicans), but two-thirds believe the decision should be left up to the states. A slim majority (51/46) favor marijuana legalization. A significant majority (38/61) support stricter limits or outright bans on abortion.

1) Obama did sign an executive order to close Gitmo but Congress blocked it. He lived up to his promise.
2) I kept my doctor because I was smart enough to chose a plan that included him in their network. There was nothing in the ACA that determined networks.
3) The ACA had a claus that permitted insurance companies to continue offering any plan they had prior to the passage of the bill. If you lost your policy, it was not Obama's fault.
"real dumb"
Keep being a president nobama asskisser, he needs all the support he can get. To respond to your BS;
1} nobama promised to close Gitmo. He did not. He lied.
2} You may have kept your Medicaid, over 6 million American's had their insurance cancelled.
3} It was nobama's fault. Before the disaster, nobamakare, policy's were not cancelled carte blanche.
