Cattle ranchers are not always rich.
What you are talking about is corporate farms.
No. I am talking about cattle ranchers in Nevada. They are wealthy. And, so are big cattle ranchers here in California. I know several and they are multi-millionaires. It's a very lucrative profession, made even better if one steals from the government like Bundy. Do you seriously believe that Bundy would have wasted time and money fighting this in court for the past 20 yers if he didn't have money to burn? Lawyers are not cheap.

Obamacare Premiums To Rise At Record Pace

It's certain that premiums for Obamacare plans are going up - and they're rising at a record pace.

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades.

"For the last, about, five years they've been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they've been doing (it)," said Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute.

"[A] 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we've seen for decades."

That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring.

*Delaware had 100 percent increase.

*Florida had a 37 percent increase.

*Pennsylvania 28 percent increase.

*California had a 53 percent increase in their premiums.

There have been so many promises made and broken regarding Obamacare that it's hard to keep track.

[Obama lied] to the American people when he claimed that they will save $2,500 a year on insurance under Obamacare. Instead, costly plans are going to become even more expensive, squeezing families dry. Now Democrats are saying only that it was "unrealistic" to expect no pain in switching from the system we had - where the overwhelming majority of people were satisfied with their insurance - to what we have now. They will gloss over the lie about savings and accuse the American people of being naive.

Good luck with that, guys.

More reichwing propaganda.

"Among the tax hikes Mr. Obama wanted were REINSTATEMENTS of superfund excise taxes and superfund environmental income taxes in 2010 (which have been reinstated every year since 1980 when the fund was established); something called a financial crisis responsibility fee in 2011 ( a proposed tax upon certain financial firms, being imposed until that financial firm had paid off all money provided to it under the Troubled Assets Relief Program); the designation of growth zones and accompanying tax and fee structures in 2012 (growth zones have been around since the 1970's); and the repeal or elimination of several tax benefits for various oil, gas and energy drilling endeavors in 2014." Really, this is what conservatives call raising taxes? Seems to me they are running scared.

Steals?

Like the thieves from renewable energy corporations like Solyndra that referred to the Obama administration as the Bank of Washington, D.C.?

Lucrative?

Ever wonder why someone would spend hundreds of millions to try and win an election for a job that pays a few hundred grand with benefits and a pension? It sure as shit isn't to help the indigent.

DB is a walking lie, after I busted him on his alleged Marine in Vietnam BS he quickly quit posting that crap. He claimed that he was a Sergeant in the Marines Corp in Vietnam, but he continued to spell the rank as Sargeant and Sargant, he also didn't know about PRC radio used there. He ran away as soon as I busted him. Anyone that has ever served would never misspell their rank, especially over and over, He is a fanatical phony, He would have fit in nicely in the Bush administration. I also busted Gunner and a couple other imposters on here, and they all ran like cock roaches when you turn the light on.
You busted him?

Try again....

This grab for money was made possible by someone slipping into the farm bill a line removing the 10 year statue of limitations.

However, they didn't remove the requirement to notify people so they could appeal.

Is Obama the most money grubbing president yet? "

17. In all likelihood Colbert's ancestors didn't pronounce their surname ColeBEAR.

19. Colbert is just another in the long line of grossly overpaid entertainers who for some strange reason aren't viewed by the left as part of the evil rich/greedy 1% club.

And yes, it is the best decision I ever made. More expensive to buy and install, but so worth it. No vents, no huge monstrosity gobbling energy and making noise, and breaking down. This has no parts to break down. Check it out -- you might be able to switch over now, and, if not, maybe soon. Even if your energy is relatively cheap, this has so many benefits.
Well, honey, it's my birthday, and I'm going off to have a few. Tomorrow I go to the King Winery in Eugene. It's been a long day, and kicking back tonight and tomorrow sounds just right. You have yourself a wonderful evening with your lady -- that lucky girl! ;)

Temporary or not makes no difference. Until such time as the land is no longer under Federal jurisdiction, Bundy must abide by Federal law and regulations. However, as aside, show me where in the Nevada constitution is says anything about the arrangement being "temporary".
To correct you-- the state ceded the land the to the FEDs years before Bundy started ranching. But his family had been using it before that time. It was NOT always FED land.

I tried to expand your mind and get you off the Bundy obsession by bringing in the broader issue.

Should the FEDs claim ownership of more than 50% of state lands?

It will be an issue you will see again.

It's incredible, isn't it? It looks to me as if the City Fathers have their hands tied. If they sweep the streets, there'd be howls of racism the likes of which we've never seen. They won't work, even if jobs magically appeared. Chicago, like Detroit, is dying from a cancer that has no known cure.

You may know of a few in California who are. I also know many here who are not multi-millionaires.

Have you ever been to the desert? What a rancher needs to raise cattle is vegetation. In arid environments it takes a lot more land per cow than in other areas. So large herds to make someone rich is not usual.
