Are we more free under Obama? A rodeo clown received a lifetime ban for wearing an Obama mask during a rodeo at the Missouri State Fair as a part of his act. During the act the clown asked the crowd if they would like to see Obama run down by a bull. The crowd cheered wildly. The video was posted on Youtube where the liberal media took off with the story. Now everyone associated with the Rodeo Association and several government officials have had to issue aplolgies for the act. Several legislators have suggested that the Missouri State Fair be cut off from tax dollar funding. My question is where was the outrage about Genesis' video "Land of Confusion" (which happens to be one of my all time favorite videos) where a Ronald Reagan mask was worn? The video drew controversy for its portrayal of Ronald Reagan as being physically and cognitively inept. Did anyone lose funding for that? NO. Was Phil Collins banned for life from performing? NO. We are headed down a very dangerous path with this administration where every freedom we lose leaves Obama and his socialistic freedom killing administration access to a bridge to another freedom. Where does it end and how much do we have to lose before liberals in this country think it's finally "fair"? My guess is we aren't even close.
Since when is Rush Limbaugh a part of the " liberal media " ?

"You know, you people on the left, who the hell do you think you are? You canít laugh. You canít take a joke. You canít take a punch. You canít take anything,Ē Limbaugh said Wednesday.ďOne little thing that you donít like, and this clown can never work; everybody involved is resigning.Ē
Limbaugh, who grew up in Southern Missouri, said the reaction was as though Obama is a religious ďmessiah.Ē

In my case with the Flexible Spending Account, this went into effect at my company this year (2013), and to my understanding, it was due to the new laws.
My company allowed a $6,000 max, which we have utilized every year, and we typically used every penny by September, every year.
(Braces = appx.$6,000 per child,
Insurance = appx.$1,000 per child
Total out-of-pocket cost for pearly whites = appx.$15,000)
In January, we were cut to the $2,500 you mentioned above.
So glad Obama is looking to make things easier for hard-working, middle America. Our Flex-Plan was maxed out by April this year.
-Yes, the Medicine Cabinet Tax went into effect in 2011. Yet another way Obama is looking out for middle class.
-Of course you are correct...as if medical procedures are not outrageous enough, the cost for this 'affordable' healthcare for all, is yet another weight strapped to the back of middle America.
Perhaps one of the most outrageous aspects of all is to have an idiot like Barney, who tries to defend this insanity with an insane response like this:
"Btw if you do not pay all the IRS can do is sue you and they can only collect up to 2x what you owe".
So that is 'All' the IRS can do...sue you??
And 'Only' take more of my money that I have worked very hard for, away from my family, for what I "Owe" ???
And then, old Barney even goes so far as to enlighten us all by 'telling it like it is' and 'explaining' the Bronze plan penalty in only the way his puppet-like, spoon-fed, dependent and inept thinking mind can work.
I work...I pay taxes...I pay my bills...I pay health insurance, my deductibles, my left over 20%, and remember, I also not only pay for my families healthcare, I also pay the over-inflated health care costs already in place to cover the slugs that never pay a dime to a doctor or hospital, but will frequent the ER at 2:00 in the morning...in a snow storm...for a runny nose...
And then Barney has the audacity to suggest that 'ALL' the IRS can do is 'SUE' me...and 'ONLY' take more of my money, knowing that healthcare costs will be passed on to those unfortunate souls that get sick,
as if that is a reasonable and acceptable action...and that this is all somehow for our good and the good of country and mankind?
Ridiculous!
A solution to this dilemma, might be completely exempting every aspect of affordable health care only to those that oppose it
for one year, and only enforcing these laws on those that so happily support and fight for it...
I mean, heck, with the masses in America that support and defend this plan, and find it reasonable and acceptable that 'all' the IRS would do if they don't purchase the government imposed health care, would be to sue them, and 'only' take 2x more than what they actually owe shouldn't mind footing the bill for it.
After a year, all those that were opposed and exempted would have the option to change their minds, and participate in the plan, while those that had supported it could chose to bail, and be exempted.
Of course, that's just some silly 'what if'...and those without common sense and reasonable minds will just be left to never imagine the outcome....
It is with reservation that I dignify this rant with a comment, but I must say, ones who attempts to bring you down are already beneath you.

Usually depends on the source as to whether or not you disagree. You generally agree with Mein Kamph, The Communist Manifesto or the Quran but disagree with most anything to the right of that.

You can say whatever you want to say...boldly or reserved. In fact, I would encourage it!
It is evident within the very things you say and every comment you share that no one has to 'attempt' to bring you down.
You throw yourself under the bus by letting your fingers do your talkin!

I get fined and that fine increases to the point where it is cheaper to purchase the insurance than pay the fine"

False

I have already shown you why that is false, and you agreed.

QUOTE-"So yes, the income based penalty is as you said"


"So what do you think I, and most other people, will do? We will purchase the insurance though we don't even want it"

Now let me remind you of another one of your quotes,

"BUT my wife and I currently pay around $4,000 annually for both of us to be covered by medical and dental"

Why would you "purchase the insurance" when you are already covered.

Insurance is to restore you to the finical position you enjoyed before your loss. To file duplicate claims for the same loss under multiple policies is fraud.

Your ignorance is astounding, so much so you really do need to post under multiple nick names. I chose to use the term
'nick names' being you are so opposed to the word moniker.

Where did you get race was a issue because I suggested Rush was not member of, and I quote "liberal media".

I have not seen nor have I heard "several government officials have had to issue (aplolgies)SP for the act", perhaps you have, but I doubt it.
I have certainly read the condemnation of the act from public officials.

You certainly have a knack for self contradiction, example-

"My question is where was the outrage about Genesis' video "Land of Confusion"

then you proceed to say-

"The video drew controversy for its portrayal of Ronald Reagan as being physically and cognitively inept'.

"suggested that the Missouri State Fair be cut off from tax dollar funding" This is true, "suggested" being the key word here, then you proceed to insinuate it has been unfunded with this remark,

"Did anyone lose funding for that? IE: Reagan video.

" Was Phil Collins banned for life from performing? NO."

I must ask was Mike Huckabee "banned" from anything for his parody of I Didn't Start the Fire?

I cannot really recall RC referring to me as "Barn", but your alias or your partner in profound ignorance does quite often.

If you are a US citizen, President Obama is as much your leader as he is mine.
I will also take this opportunity to address this post of your ilk/self- "You can say whatever you want to say".

Thank you for the conformation, being I am a Veteran of the U.S. Arm Forces I am aware of that fact. If you have forgotten please let me remind you of the lyric from a song by another good Republican entertainer Lee Greenwood-


-And I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me-



Obviously I am not dead, but I damn sure did my part to give you and me that right, HAVE YOU?

Since Maximilien Robespierre died July 28, 1794 it is obvious you are engaging in plagiarism.

For a man know by his adversaries as, dictateur sanguinaire , translation, bloodthirsty dictator, not only new the secret well he practiced it .

Oh the irony here, and ignorance as well I suspect, that a good self professed Christian like you would quote a man well known to be associated with those who's idea of radical purification of politics was killing their enemies.



The general will rules in society as the private will governs each separate individual.

Maximilien Robespierre

As I said he not only new it well, he was a fine purveyor of it.

"keeping them ignorant"


Looks like you and ole Maximilien think a lot alike in that respect.
