Thinking the republican fundamentalists don't have sex, and if they do would never enjoy it, but think its ONLY about pro creation. In Oklahoma that crazy wants "oral sex" banned even between a man and woman who are married...these people off loopey, crazy, bug eyed cave dwellers.

For states that have decided to be proactive and work for the wellbeing of all their citizens and small businesses, the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is being implemented successfully. There will be bumps but it will be successful where politicians start supporting it as opposed to putting obstacles in its way to attempt to cause it to fail for ideological reasons.

A few weeks ago it was reported that California premiums under Obamacare would be lower than predicted. In Oregon after rates were posted insurance companies in the exchange requested or said there would be decreases in their own rates.

Today the New York Times is reporting that Health Plan costs for individuals in New York are decreasing by 50%. It is true that those that are getting employer base health insurance likely will see little change. For the entrepreneur, the stylist, the musician, the sandwich shop owner, this is a financial saving and likely lifesaving. Remember with Obamacare, health screenings are a part of every plan.

This is big for several reasons. For decades innovative individuals were chained to their corporate masters because leaving those chains meant that they likely could not get insurance because of pre-existing conditions or because basic individual insurance plans were simply unaffordable. It is clear that putting the individual on a similar playing field with corporations frees those who want to innovate or go into business for themselves. Obamacare has given them that opportunity, that access to seek success. That is the fear of every Corporation against this program. They will no longer have a monopoly on the innovative ideas of its employees and will either have to pay for their real worth or lose them.

Obamacare is not a panacea. Obamacare is a good start. It is true that health insurance companies in the short-term will benefit from all the taxpayer provided government subsidies afforded to those who must buy health insurance from these private insurance companies (a wealth transfer from the many to the few). However, in a system where every politician is bought and owned my moneyed interests, Obamacare was a middle class coup.

Americans must still ultimately fight for a single payer system,‘Medicare for all’. This ensures that every able-bodied American pay taxes for healthcare and every American is entitled to good healthcare in the country that claims it has the best health care. Only a single payer system can mitigate the fraud that is our health insurance system. It is the only moral and economically smart solution for the country.

Republican Jesus’ Ten Commandments

And Lo, did Republican Jesus come down among the masses and holding his tablet PC did he give unto his disciples the NEW (and improved) Ten Commandments:“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Socialism, out of the house of Communism.”
1. You shall have no other gods before me, especially that terrorist monkey god, Mohammed.[i]

2. You shall not make for yourself any carved image; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them except for the Holy Benjamins. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting poverty of the fathers on the children of those (as in those people) who hate me, but showering material riches unto thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. Also, you shall have guns. All you want.

3. You shall not take the name of your God, Ronald Reagan, in vain, for the Lord will hold him guiltless of treason and malfeasance.

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. If you are a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, six days you shall labor and do all your work, that should just about do it for the year[ii], but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor the stranger who is within your country illegally unless they are off the books then they shall work all seven days without respite. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, including dinosaur bones and rested the seventh day.

5. Honor your father and your mother by ensuring that they keep their Social Security even as you shall taketh it away from all others.

6. You shall not murder unless they are Muslim. Or gay. Or abortion doctors. Or government workers. Or black. Or whatever group is currently out of favor with mine chosen White (not white, White) People.

7. You shall not commit adultery and get caught during an election year.

8. You shall not steal unless it’s from the worker’s pensions.

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Just kidding, Fox News. Go forth and bear away.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s. Instead, you shall go forth and buy these things for yourself on credit and keep the “too big to fail” banks happy.

And thus did Republican Jesus™ lead his Chosen White people to that paradise on earth known as Somalia where they did not have to render unto Caesar anything and freedom showered from the heavens like Manna.

And then they all died of dysentery.

As I keep saying, the Tea-publicans are just angry, racist, misogynist and intolerant white men who have a good scam going and don't want those "minorities and fem-nists messing things up for them. In their paranoid-delusional little worlds of fear and hatred, they think they should always be able to shoot anyone they don't like or isn't like them or wants to make them responsible in any way for their actions. And of course it's OK for angry, deprived and persecuted white men and their families to take handouts from the guv-mint, but no one else, especially them thar heathens.

HEY GOP/ Tp’rs Bible-thumpers and holier-thou’s. PLEASE answer me this question: On the day of your reckoning, as you stand before God, WHAT will be your answer when he asks you WHY you treated your fellow man the way you did? I also think he’ll tell you his son Jesus will have some questions for you. And Remember this — and REMEMBER IT WELL — Jesus was a Progressive !!

IF the GOP wins the election(s) Takes the POTUS, takes the senate. In addition to the *NEW* ten commandments, there will also be a new version of the Pledge of Allegiance! It will read as follows:
“I Pledge allegiance to the United States of America. And to the Corporations, for which it stands, One nation Under Grover Norquist, With Liberty and justice for only those that can afford it”

And let’s not forget Republican Jesus(tm)new Beatitudes–

Blessed are the warmakers, for they shall be called the Children of the Military-Industrial Complex, and they shall become rich.

Blessed are the Poor, for they shall be servants to the Rich forever and ever, world without end.

Blessed are they that mourn, for they prove the ascendency of the Military-Industrial Complex, that it is powerful.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after wealth, for they shall believe anything the rich do tell them.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall fertilize the Earth for the wealthy.

Blessed are the powerful, for they deserve their positions, and owe nothing to the meek, the hungry, and they who mourn.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after power, and nothing that they do shall be held against them.

Blessed are the pure in Power, for they shall be the voices of the Military-Industrial Complex, and they shall see It.

Blessed are they which persecute others for self-righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of the Military-Industrial Complex.

Amen.

I believe Fry Queen should take her cause to a more appropriate topic.

I believe no one should be allowed to eat more than 10 lbs of potatoes or 2 chickens a day. By doing this we will save those who gorge daily putting their health at risk. Let alone the stains on their clothes.

War For Oil is the poster child for this deadly but common behavior. Please help me in supporting this movement.

Comments are welcome.

Do you not know health screening are ready in place when people have health insurance. It has been in place for some time now.
Now when you talk about the cost of health insurance going down because of the Affordable Act Care, Obamacare are you talking about the Platinum Plan, the Gold Plan, the Silver Plan or the lowest plan the Bronze plan.
Medicare for all. Part A has a deductible for the first 3 months being hospitalized of $1165.00 and then another deductible if you re-enter the hospital and Part B has a deductible of $145.00. Medicare pays after deductible are met 80% of the approved amount of the bill and the patient is responsible for the 20%. A person can buy a medicare supplement to pay for the 20% after the supplement deductible is met. So is this what your wish is when you say 'Medicare for All'?

The deductibles I posted about for medicare are a yearly thing. Part A [Hospital] deductible is $1165.00 for the first 3 months and if you re-enter the hospital again after 2 months is up and you are still in the year there will another deductible. Like you enter the hospital in 2013 and the first 3 months you pay a deductible 0f $1165.00. So if in this year after the first 3 months you re-enter the hospital you pay another deductible. Part B is a one time deductible of $145.00 for a year. If you are not on Medicare's Advantage Plan which is like a HMO policy you also have to buy a drug insurance policy.

In a stunning development, Deputy Director of the NSA, John Inglis, along with Assistant Attorney General, James Cole, have fled the United States after their participation in a contentious congressional meeting on Capitol Hill.

In that meeting, both Inglis and Cole revealed that the depth of NSA spying far surpassed anything that whistleblower Edward Snowden has made public to date. The unauthorized leaks to Congress by Inglis and Cole, which exposed more about NSA spying than anything Snowden has revealed, shook congressional leaders to their core.

The National Security Agency revealed to an angry congressional panel on Wednesday that its analysis of phone records and online behavior goes exponentially beyond what it had previously disclosed.
[...]

John C Inglis, the deputy director of the surveillance agency, told a member of the House judiciary committee that NSA analysts can perform "a second or third hop query" through its collections of telephone data and internet records in order to find connections to terrorist organizations.

"Hops" refers to a technical term indicating connections between people. A three-hop query means that the NSA can look at data not only from a suspected terrorist, but from everyone that suspect communicated with, and then from everyone those people communicated with, and then from everyone all of those people communicated with.

The Obama administration, blindsided by the leaks, immediately announced that the two would be charged under The Espionage Act, and declared them enemies of the state.
Eric Holder, in a hastily convened press conference, admitted that the two had fled the United States on private jets immediately after the hearing, and that their whereabouts where unknown. He was, however, confident that the U.S. would bring them to justice.

“The national security of the United States has been damaged by those leaks. The safety of the American people and safety of people in allied nations is at risk."
[...]

“I am confident that the people who are responsible will be held accountable.”

Rumors are that the two senior intelligence officials have fled to Venezuela, where like Snowden, it is anticipated they will seek asylum. However, much speculation is swirling at this stage regarding their location and fate.

Packing Heat was seated next to DoesntMatter on a flight to Texas. After the
plane took off, DoesntMatter asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and
placed before him.

The flight attendant then asked Packing Heat if he would like a drink.

Appalled,

Packing Heat replied, "I'd rather be tied up and taken advantage of by women of
ill-repute, than let liquor touch my lips."

DoesntMatter then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "Me too, I
didn't know we had a choice."

You got that right! Obama was so pride of claiming T. Martin as a son which had been suspended from school 3 times and the last time was for pot. Which he was on that suspension the nite of the shooting. It was said he had pot in his blood systems the nite of the shooting. His Mother had sent him to his Dads for the duration of his suspension. So yes you are right If Obama had a city it would look just like Detroit.
