Are you a conservative?
Are you a conservative? You might be if you believe any of the things on this list. Read on and see.
1: You might be a conservative if youre irate over the president taking so many vacation days on the taxpayers dime (61 thus far), but you thought George W. Bush earned every minute of his leisure time (196 days at the same point in his presidency).
2: Youre happy with your 40 hour work week, paid vacations and company-provided healthcare, but youre strongly anti-union, because those commies havent done anything for you lately.
3: You might be a conservative if you strongly support the First Amendment and its guarantee of religious freedom to all, but you dont think Muslims have a right to build an Islamic Community Center in Manhattan.
4: You believe Ronald Reagan was a devout Christian, even though he hated going to church, but any president who spends twenty years going to the same Trinity United Church in Chicago must be a Muslim.
5: You might be a conservative if you believe that when a Republican governor creates a healthcare package with an individual mandate for everyone in his state, thats a good idea. But when a Democratic president does it, suddenly its unconstitutional.
6: Youre so enthused about demonstrating your Second Amendment rights, you can think of no finer place to brandish your pistol in public than at a presidential rally.
7: You might be a conservative if you believe Bill Clinton was responsible for Osama bin Ladens escape ten years ago, but thankfully George W. Bush caught up with him and killed him in Pakistan.
8: You believe in putting American jobs first, except when president Obama rescued 1.5 million GM and Chrysler autoworkers, because that was socialism.
9: You might be a conservative if it angers you that you cant communicate with the Mexican busboy at your local Olive Garden, but when you took a vacation to San Franciscos Chinatown, you thought its quaint that so many Chinese-Americans are holding fast to their traditional language. Because thats America!
10: You deny that the lunatic who tried to murder Gaby Giffords was a conservative, even though he targeted a Jewish, pro-choice, pro gay rights, Democratic Congresswoman.
11: You You might be a conservative if you thought it was perfectly normal that every president in history had an untethered right to raise the debt ceiling when warranted, but when Obama asked the GOP held congress to do it, you thought it only natural that it be tied to cutting Social Security and Medicare.
12: When the new 112th Congress was sworn in, you swooned as they promised to focus on Jobs, jobs, jobs. But when they pivoted, and went after NPR, Planned Parenthood and gay rights, you cheered.
13: You might be a conservative if you accuse president Obama of raising your taxes to the highest point ever, even though theyre lower today than at any time since 1950.
14: You believe the wealthiest Americans are job creators, and they are but it doesnt bother you that all the workers in those positions are in India, China and Malaysia, and theyre doing the jobs that our fathers once did.
15: You might be a conservative if you believe gays are anti-American, because their lifestyle is a threat to the children unless theyre married to Tea Party-backed presidential candidates from Minnesota.

16: You strongly defend individual freedom, but that freedom doesnt include a womans right to decide her own healthcare needs.
17: You might be a conservative if you believe corporations are people too, and are deserving of the same rights as the rest of us. Just not the same obligations to pay personal income tax free of corporate loopholes, or penalties for massive criminal behavior and tax evasion. In these matters, corporations are deserving of special rights.
18: And since corporations are now people too, you must believe in their right to a drivers license, the right to marry, to adopt children, etc. These rights shall not be denied to Exxon, Halliburton and BP (but still immune from the right of the People to try, convict and sentence to death any corporation that conspires to commit a felony because at that point, theyre suddenly not people again.)
19: You might be a conservative if you still believe Climate Change is a myth, and the recent record highs, lows, floods and droughts around the world coinciding with climate scientists predictions are all an amazing coincidence. Oh, and Al Gore is FAT!
20: You believe when George W. Bush took the national debt from $5 trillion to $11 trillion, it was necessary for him to do so to keep America safe. But when Barack Obama added to it by trying to rescue the country from a second Great Depression, he was deliberately trying to destroy America!
21: You might be a conservative if you believe America is a God fearing country, and that the Almighty protects those who believe just as you do. But its never crossed your mind that the majority of tornados, hurricanes and floods all occur in the Bible Belt.
22: You believe that no matter whos in the White House, the office, if not the man himself is deserving of your respect. The only exceptions to this rule, are if his middle name sounds Muslim, and if hes not at least as white as that black guy who works down in the mailroom at the office.

Here is one for you---WMCOL:
"A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuses to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a realty contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police State Dictatorship it is going to get."

The word Messiah is a title and its a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ.
Thats what Judge Lu Ann Ballew said last August when ruling the seven month old babys name be changed from Messiah to Martin. That ruling drew outrage. Now, shes been fired by a a higher-up.
O. Duane Slone, presiding judge of the states fourth judicial district, terminated Ballews appointment, effective last Friday, according to court documents.
Slone did not give a reason in his order, but Ballew had previously been cited by the Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct for an inappropriate religious bias. A hearing is scheduled for March 3.
Ballew could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.
As reported HERE, both the mother, Jaleesa Martin, and the father, Jawaan McCullough, were insisting on their respective surnames for baby Messiah in front of the Child Support Magistrate. Ballew instead threw out the childs birth name and ordered the boy renamed Martin DeShawn McCullough. The parents appealed, and another judge held that Ballews ruling was unconstitutional.

History of Messiah.
Apparently Judge Ballew was unaware the Messiah was the 387th most popular name for boys born in the United States in 2012. Or that, as reported by the Social Security Administration, 762 applications for boys named Messiah in 2012, more than double the 368 applications made in 2011.
Seems Messiah doesnt come to, nor is it welcome in Cocke Co. Tennessee. At least not in Judge Ballews court. But all that has come to and end. First, judgment and then execution of sentence for thou who passed original judgment on Baby Messiah.
Or maybe, thanks should go to those judges who ruled without the bias that religion preaches. Following in the wake of the Creationism debate we see an overwhelming support to reason by means of natural law and not blind faith. That reason of law once again prevailed. Judgment based on religious beliefs was found unconstitutional and Lu Ann Ballew is no longer sitting in judgment of anyone.
Have you heard the Good News?
Raise your hands to the sky and shout,Hallelujah! Further disciplinary actions are coming. Termination was not enough. I would expect disbarment. And then her religious bias and personal judgment wont be the only cross she has to bear.

To insure the uninsured, first we make the insured uninsured. Then we make the formerly insured pay more to become re-insured to insure the uninsured for free.

We all know what the word Millionaire means but do you all know what the word NILLIONAIRE means?
I believe there is a few of them posing non stop on here.

Andy came into the house and yelled,'Amos, where are you?"
Amos yelled back, "I is in the kitchen laying Linoleum on the table.
Andy yells back,'Has she go a Sister?"

It appears Wisconsin has a problem coming from both sides of the political aisle. Sorry to burst your hate whitey bubble
A small Wisconsin town has not only deemed it illegal for residents to wear Impeach Obama t-shirts, but to proudly display the American flag as well. Of course, it isnt all over the city, just within 100 feet of any overpasses in town.
The controversy started when a movement called Overpasses for America started waving flags and holding signs saying to impeach Obama on overpasses for all passersby below to see. Needless to say a few Obama sheep complained about the protesters and the city shut them down.
Enacting an all out ban on anything of political natureincluding even the American flagthe city has ruled that the protesters not be allowed within 100 feet of any overpass within the citys limits.
After that, testing the waters to see how serious authorities were on enforcing their new unconstitutionally provoked law, random protesters defied the ruling and went out there anyways. A group of protesters went out wearing impeach Obama t-shirts but were quickly shooed off by police with the threat of fines for non-compliance.
Another man just went out to fly the flag but was promptly slapped with a $139 fine as he was in violation of the new law.
Since that time, protesters have taken legal action and have now prepared a lawsuit of epic proportions that they are dropping at the feet of the city. President and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, Richard Thompson, explains:
The Supreme Court has repeatedly stated that a bedrock principle of the First Amendment is that government cannot ban the expression of ideas just because some find it offensive. In fact, the Supreme Court has allowed the burning of the American Flag on the grounds that it is a matter of free expression. So Im astonished that the Town of Campbell and the police department think it can ban a citizen from displaying the American Flag.
An attorney representing the case, Erin Mersino, echoed Thompsons remarks saying:
Viewpoint discrimination is one of the most harmful threats to our freedom of speech. The answer to contempt of a certain viewpoint is not to silence that viewpoint, but to invite more speech and create a discourse. That is one of the most fundamental tenets of our Republic. The ordinance at issue turns the public sidewalk on the overpass, which is otherwise open to the public into a dead speech zone.

Short and to the point! Good one.

In an attempt to insure the 30 million uninsured.
NOW we'll have thirty-five- million uninsured!
How is this better?

In other words you're too stupid to understand the post... I get it.
You're a little slow there skippy, you are excused.
How much time do you devote to being stupid everyday?

The media is at it again. They present the story as:
"Man Shot Over Texting in Movie Theater"
The truth is that a man was shot after he grabbed a 71 year old man's bucket of popcorn and whipped it into his face.
The shooting was a simple reaction, by a frail old man, to being physically assaulted in a dark theater.
Had not the shooting victim escalated a simple verbal discussion to a physical assault, he'd be alive today.
In the lower right hand you can see the shooting victim grab Reeve's bucket of popcorn, and hurl it at the old man's head.
At this point Reeves was under no obligation to allow the assault to continue to escalate.
Lesson Here: Don't assault an old man just because you believe that you are younger and stronger.

Could Obamacare Really Bring Down Social Security?
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has been controversial ever since it became law. A recent report from the Congressional Budget Office recently concluded that Obamacare could cause full-time employment to drop by 2 million.
Given that Social Security is funded by wage-based taxes, could that drop in wage income lead to Social Security's demise?
Remember! We are already borrowing to pay Social Security now, FACT!

Which of these is REALLY in your best interest?
The truth is, the Republicans aren't out to get you. The rich aren't out to enslave you. The truth is that they don't give you much thought at all. They're too busy running their businesses, hiring their employees and dealing with the realities that make up a productive life.
They think about you all the time. They think about what is best for you. They decide what is and is not your best interest. They think of you as a slow witted, weak-minded victim who can't decide for yourself what kind of food to eat, where to send your kids to school or whether or not you want to be in a union.
Liberals don't believe you'll buy light bulbs that save you money and they don't believe you can be trusted owning a gun and they certainly believe you are far too stupid to be trusted to save for your own retirement.
They believe that your life will turn out best if they care for you like a backwards child and that freedom to make your own choices is not, really, in your best interest.

Another example of Liberal Racism...
The truly insidious racism of lowered expectations:
Voter ID is racist so they claim. People of color are more likely to not have any picture ID, they claim and apparently, unable to get a picture ID! Prejudiced against the young and the old, so they claim.
Why would a person of color be less likely to have and less likely be able to get a picture ID than you are?
Are people of color too stupid to know how to get one?
Do you believe people of color can't come up with a $5 issuance fee?
I hope Liberals aren't saying they are too lazy, are they?
Why is it YOU can get a picture ID and yet they claim a person of color can't do it as well?

Exclusive: AIDS patients in Obamacare limbo as insurers reject checks
By Sharon Begley and Julie Steenhuysen

By Sharon Begley and Julie Steenhuysen
NEW YORK (Reuters)- Hundreds of people with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana trying to obtain coverage under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform are in danger of being thrown out of the insurance plan they selected in a dispute over federal subsidies and the interpretation of federal rules about preventing Obamacare fraud.
Some healthcare advocates see discrimination in the move, but Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana says it is not trying to keep people with HIV/AIDS from enrolling in one of its policies under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
The state's largest carrier is rejecting checks from a federal program designed to help these patients pay for AIDS drugs and insurance premiums, and has begun notifying customers that their enrollment in its Obamacare plans will be discontinued.
The carrier says it no longer will accept third-party payments, such as those under the 1990 Ryan White Act, which many people with HIV/AIDS use to pay their premiums.
"In no event will coverage be provided to any subscribers, as of March 1, 2014, unless the premiums are paid by the subscriber (or a relative) unless otherwise required by law," Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana spokesman John Maginnis told Reuters.
AIDS FUNDS EXEMPT FROM FRAUD CONCERNS
The dispute goes back to a series of statements from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the lead Obamacare agency.
In September, CMS informed insurers that Ryan White funds "may be used to cover the cost of private health insurance premiums, deductibles, and co-payments" for Obamacare plans.
In November, however, it warned "hospitals, other healthcare providers, and other commercial entities" that it has "significant concerns" about their supporting premium payments and helping Obamacare consumers pay deductibles and other costs, citing the risk of fraud.
The insurers told healthcare advocates that the November guidance requires them to reject payments from the Ryan White program in order to combat fraud, said Robert.
