Yeah it would be worse because there would be no other option like the vets have. They can always go to a different hospital even if they pay for it themselves. With single payer that option goes out the window for most.

WE didn't decide to repatriate them.

If anything, they should have been lionized by Islam as martyrs. But Obama made them returning heroes.

U.S. Patent And Trademark Office Cancels Redskins Trademark

""The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled six federal trademark registrations for the name "Washington Redskins" on Wednesday on the grounds that the football team’s name is “disparaging to Native Americans” and thus in violation of federal trademark laws banning offensive or disparaging language.

“We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered,” the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board wrote in its opinion Wednesday.

The landmark ruling was filed on behalf of a group of Native Americans.

The decision was first reported by Think Progress.""

You might want to brush up on American history since it's obviously not your forte!
Obama couldn't take credit for the "accomplishments in Iraq" (stated by Biden in 2010) any more than Nixon could take credit for winning WWII.

Are you cray-cray? Or what?

Iraq was stabilized when Biden gave all the credit to Obama. Obama destabilized it by walking away from the negotiating table without even uttering any objections or saying good-bye to Maliki

So now it's all Bush's fault again. Sounds rather childish to me.

Not really__Snyder can continue to use the logo but the bad news is that anyone else can now use it and that hurts in too many ways to list.

The same thing happened years ago and the courts decided in the teams favor.

We'll see what happens eh?

I think he should rename the team the Foreshins

You do a nice job of avoiding the fact that Obama merely obeyed an agreement signed by his predecessor.

Bush agreed to withdraw all American troops by y/e 2011 because Iraq would not guarentee American imunity from Iraqi prosecution.

And you're so stupid you think Obama should have left our troopps there without protection from Iraqi law?

Nice to see you're still lying about Bush's misdeeds.

"German Catholic Church details wartime use of forced labor

BERLIN — Germany's Roman Catholic Church exploited nearly 6,000 forced laborers in the Nazi era, it said in a report Tuesday, detailing a dark chapter in its history.
The church in 2000 acknowledged its use of forced labor under Hitler, and it has paid €1.5 million, of $2.4 million, in compensation to foreign workers. But the report, "Forced Labor and the Catholic Church 1939-1945," is the most thorough look at the issue so far.
The 703-page report documents the fate of 1,075 prisoners of war and 4,829 civilians who were forced to work for the Nazis in nearly 800 Catholic institutions - mainly hospitals, homes and monastery gardens - as part of the war effort.
The church, which has financed over 200 "reconciliation" projects, said exact numbers would never be known.
"It should not be concealed that the Catholic Church was blind for too long to the fate and suffering of men, women and children from the whole of Europe who were carted off to Germany as forced laborers," Cardinal Karl Lehmann, the country's leading Roman Catholic prelate until he stepped down from his post as chairman of the Congregation of German Bishops in February, said at the presentation of the report.
Catholics and Protestants were subject to oppression under the Nazis, but aside from some notable figures from both churches who voiced opposition, they broadly went along. The SS expropriated more than 300 monasteries and other Catholic institutions from 1940 to 1942, and thousands of Catholics were sent to concentration camps, Karl-Joseph Hummel, co-author of the report, said at a news conference in Mainz...."
Again, what's your point?

“The German people must be misled if the support of the masses is required.”
~Adolph Hitler

Look at how many black Christians were enamored with Obama whose ideology went against their Christian values.

Unfortunately, too many German Christians fell for Hitler's lies and deception. Once in complete control, he proceeded to oppress the church by dictating what it could and could not preach and removing all vestiges of true Christianity from both churches and society.

That's what a lot of us are afraid is happening now. Right here in this country.

Carol was at that meeting. Didn't you know? Yep she knows what was said to Maliki for not signing the agreement.

I'm thinking he was told to either sign it or he was on his own when the Sunnis come knocking.

Vermont's Single-Payer Dream Is Taxpayer Nightmare
Megan McArdle
3326 APR 11, 2014 11:52 AM EDT
By Megan McArdle
a A
(Corrects quoted text in third paragraph.)
Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage.
Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal government to grant waivers allowing Vermont to divert Medicaid and other health-care funding into the single-payer system. And second, Vermont needs to find some way to pay for it:
Now comes the big challenge: paying for it. Act 48 required Vermont to create a single-payer system by 2017. But the state hasn’t drafted a bill that spells out how to raise the approximately $2 billion a year Vermont needs to run the system. The state collects only $2.7 billion in tax revenue each year, so an additional $2 billion is a vexingly large sum to scrape together.
Vermont is a middling-tax state, as states go. And that’s not an accident; its population consists of longtime Vermonters, some of whom vote Republican (at least for governor) and are not super-tax-friendly, and transplants from Massachusetts and New York state, who, last time I looked, had moved to Vermont partly because the taxes were lower. Paying for this program would likely make Vermont the highest-taxed state in the nation, by quite a lot.
Now, you can argue that people should be glad to make this trade-off, not just for peace of mind, but because they will trade higher taxes for lower (no) insurance premiums. You can also argue that poor people in America should be laughing and dancing and singing all day because every one of them is economically better off than starving farmers in drought-ridden regions of Africa. Neither argument will do you much good, however, because that’s not how people think.
Especially when you consider that estimates for this plan's cost are likely to err on the optimistic side, because, well, people drawing up proposed budgets for their pet ideas tend to be a little optimistic. Yes, yes, there may be fabulous cost savings from using the government’s monopoly buying power to bargain prices down with providers. But Vermont is already the beneficiary of significant monopoly buying power: One insurer has 74 percent of the state’s small-group business. It’s a Blue Cross/Blue Shield, so don’t count on fabulous savings from squeezing out profits. The large group market is even more concentrated, though on a for-profit insurer.
Nor can you get much administrative saving at the provider level, because they still have to deal with out-of-state insurers quite a bit. And the once-vaunted fabulous savings from preventative care have mostly turned out not to exist.
So this is going to be expensive. So expensive that I doubt Vermont is actually going to go forward with it.
What's your love affair with libertarian/right bloggers pal?
