Once again, Obamacare is giving one-sixth of the nation's economy over to big government. The three big networks - ABC, CBS and NBC - devoted 31 minutes COMBINED to any news about this major overhaul and upheaval since January 1 - including the 38 delays, the big lie, the glitches and the mass confusion.

That breaks down to 10 minutes a month combined and about 3 minutes a month each.

And we're trying to reason with people who get their news from these three networks.

orwellian....

A proposal by Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) to have the state's ethics panel fact-check campaign statements is raising concerns about possible First Amendment violations.

LePage's proposal would instruct the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices to investigate complaints of false statements made in House, Senate and gubernatorial political campaigns. The proposal is LePage's "attempt to bring civility to the process," his office said.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maine, however, expressed concern that the proposal would violate individuals' First Amendment rights.

"We agree that it is unfortunate that when politicians, business leaders and anyone else attempts to deliberately mislead the public, but it's a much greater threat to our democracy to have the government presume to decide for the public what is truth and what is falsehood,"

republicans. who would need to add a rider that republicans never get fact checked. or let lying FOX talking heads run the show.

It's the progressive liberal way of thinking. Wait until the damage is done instead of preventing it. And then wonder what happened when it's too late.

Neocons and Small-Government Conservatives, Consciously Uncouple

A country can remain constantly at war, or enjoy low taxes and civil liberties protections, but it can't do both.

If neoconservatives got their way, as they did during George W. Bush's first term, the United States would spend more on its military and wage war in more countries. Neoconservatives still believe the Iraq War was a good idea. They'd have preferred to keep our troops in Afghanistan longer. They urged greater American involvement in Egypt and Libya. They wanted President Obama to intervene in Syria.

As they urge actions that would require spending tens of billions of additional dollars in the Middle East and North Africa, they also insist that NATO grant security guarantees to countries like Georgia, as if the sanctity of its borders is worth risking nuclear war. And having urged a geopolitical strategy that stretches America thin across much of the rest of the world, they criticize the Obama Administration for not doing enough to "pivot toward Asia" in the Pacific.

Many small-government conservatives may be morally comfortable with interventionism. What they must realize is that neoconservatism's particular agenda would require dramatic tax increases, or significant borrowing, to carry out; that neoconservative strategists have shown an utter inability to produce competent analysis of how the interventions that they favor will unfold; and that the costs are often borne by the young Americans who are killed or maimed in lost wars.

What are the monetary costs of the neoconservative agenda? Rank-and-file Republicans often underestimate them. If neoconservative publications favor expensive wars but advocate against liberal domestic spending, is that a wash? Hardly. Once everything is factored in, the Iraq War alone may cost America $6 trillion.$6 trillion!

That's roughly $20,000 for every living American.

12 Times Republicans Claimed Nobody Would Sign Up For Obamacare

President Obama’s announcement on Thursday that six million people signed-up for coverage through the Affordable Care Act — meeting and exceeding the administration’s deadline days before the March 31st enrollment period — undermines critics who seized on the law’s troubled early rollout to predict that measure could never attract enough Americans to succeed. Below are some of the worst predictions after the administration published the first enrollment figures in November of 2013:....

would it be against the law to leave a bowl of anti-freeze in your front yard?
and before people get all antsy, if its come down to getting rid of the dog or lily getting mauled, I choose the anti freeze.
Thanks Eman,
that's funny; my niece suggested that idea as well. But, really, it's not the dogs fault; it's the owner. And, if the dog died mysteriously, he would know it was probably I who did it
There are only 5 houses on my street. Are dogs attracted to anti freeze?
If I have cameras that I can access remotely; I will see when the dog is running free and call the police.

that's a pretty good price; but looks like the cameras are not wireless; I'm trying to avoid drilling through walls. I'll take a look at it though, we have a store nearby. I've bought all my computers there.

You didn't read or hear about the 6 million who lost their insurance because of Obamacare? Who were perfectly happy with the insurance they had but were told they had to be insured the way Obama wanted them to be insured? And who now have to pay more for insurance they neither need nor want?
