It's not that I'm claiming that women are stupid, but, rather, that if she married you she can't be a brain surgeon.

Dem,

You are not good at this are you? Why did you tell us about your CORVETTE unless you were just doing it to BRAG? We are supposed to believe that you nonchalantly brought up the fact that you own a Z06 in casual conversation, and it's not bragging?

You brought up the fact that you own a corvette as a way of telling us you had made it....

I never asked you what car you owned...

Basically you are neanderthal who has come to the watering hole to beat his chest and try to impress the females with his STORY of owning a 10 year old corvette....

Not sure what you're trying to say.
But if you are saying having a corvette means I envy your wrinkled up tiny male clitoris I'd have to say you are having a homoerotic thought. And what you consider a real car is???
i saying you are a classic case of overcompensating for your little willy not working anymore...

not really up for debate, it is just the facts here...one of the clearest examples of i i have ever seen.

So, if NJ passed a state version of the ACA, you wouldn't b*tch about it?

That is about as dumb as Romney defending the Mass. healthcare but not the national.

Protection from a foreign invasion is the same as medical care? How do you even compare a personal medical choice over a national defense? That doesn't make any sense. You're concept of society is fascist or a government control of the populace.
The only medical choice not available is to be not properly insured without paying a fine.

Did you have insurance prior to the ACA passing?

Obammy's latest job killing stupid idea.

President Obama has no business ­experience.

For most people, that might incline one to modesty. Not this president. To the contrary, he believes he knows how an auto company should be run, what policies health-insurance companies should offer, the wages, say, a part-time worker in a family restaurant should receive and what banks should pay in bonuses.

Now the president has found a new area in which to intervene. Yesterday he directed his Labor Department to make millions of salaried managers eligible for overtime pay. Under existing rules, employers must pay overtime to salaried workers earning less than $455 a week. Though Obama didn’t set a new figure, most expect it to be more than double that amount.

The rhetoric out of Washington will have you believe this is justice for all those evil corporations making record profits while stiffing employees. That may make for a good election-year sound bite. But it’s surely not the tonic for a nation where a record number of Americans have given up on the job market altogether.

Like so many of President Obama’s recent actions, this one will not be done through legislation. Instead, it will be engineered simply by changing the regulations. It’s the same logic behind the boost in the minimum wage. Washington decrees and people get richer.

That, at least, is the theory. The reality is that when government makes people more expensive to employ, sooner or later it will mean fewer people are hired or employed.
