What the hell do you think the opinion of a ultra right wing group like Heritage would be.
You would hire a Fox to guard the hen house wouldn't you?
Summary: Obama tried to redefine the recess rules of the Senate so he could make recess appointments when he wanted to. They weren't redefined so Obama went ahead and made the appointments anyway. Someone recognized Obama's actions as unconstitutional (because they were) and the case went before the courts to decide. Courts ruled the appointments unconstitutional based on the evidence presented. Case waiting to go before the SCOTUS. All the rambling, blaming, and demonizing you're doing trying to find a footing to make a case means nothing. Obama overreached his authority and he got caught. Deal with it.

Just can't see the forest for those trees in your narrow minded view can you?

Just cannot understand how the idea of social welfare comes at much less of a cost to the public, than what the cost to the people would be without one.

Perhaps you can understand this- rather liberal idea..........

Utah is going against the tide. In eight years, Utah has reduced homelessness by 78 percent and is on an arc to eliminating homelessness within the state by 2015. Utah has accomplished this by doing the obvious, giving homeless people homes.

In 2005, Utah did the math and determined that the yearly costs of emergency room visits and jail for homeless people was $16,670 per person. The cost of providing each homeless person with an apartment and social work came to $11,000. So, with no strings attached, the state started giving away apartments.

The program, Housing First, also provides a caseworker to each homeless person to aid them in becoming self sufficient. The program has become so successful that other states are looking for similar results by starting programs modeled after Utah’s.

Maybe I am missing some thing here, but would it not be a reasonable conclusion to say one who is lacking intelligence would also be lacking wisdom as well?
Considering that to be fact, would it not make your above statement about speaking with a lack of discernment for wisdom to be .......... Impossible..... for one you say,
its a " fact that you aren't very smart.
Oh the irony Scarlet!
The irony, Barney, is there are many people that may be considered smart but are far from wise, and never show discernment.
Ironically, you have none of the three, except in your own eyes. There isn't a person here that doesn't know this, except you, and you just keep going, and going, and going.
One can be 'book smart' and never acquire real wisdom, but only an arrogant ass can be neither book smart, nor wise, with the discernment of a brick. And you, Barney, win that prize, hands down.

Seems as if you are beating a dead horse here, repeating what you said before hand, if you recalled i agreed,anybody that stupid would be lacking discernment of the social graces.

Now as for your titles, I have to disagree, for example, you say-

"only an arrogant ass can be neither book smart, nor wise, with the discernment of a brick"

I disagree, I do believe that would be a, DUMB ASS, not a "arrogant ass".

Not to point any fingers, but I think a Dumb Ass just showed me they can be a "arrogant ass" as well.

Good Day!

Seems to me just reading over these last few posts, that you, mr. Barney, are the dead horse that's being beaten.
What's more apparent is that everyone here enjoys beating you like a dead horse. Maybe it's time for you to just stay down, since, from what I've read, you're wrong about everything you defend.

Perhaps you can understand the concept of getting off of your lazy ass and getting a job! There are high paying jobs in this country and employers begging for people to come and work for them.

The insurance companies are now saying that the low Obamacare enrollment numbers are going to drive them out of business. Exactly what Obama wants. He and his administration have lobbied for single payer since the beginning and they are now working towards just that. The website debacle wasn't an accident but rather by design to give the insurance companies flawed data. This way the insurance companies can't accurately quote anyone making it look like they have no idea what they are doing. I'm not sure the low enrollment numbers are not by design either but that won't be known until the single payer system gets in place. If, when we are forced to switch to single payer, and the number of enrollees skyrocket we will know that the low initial sign-ups were by design.
I don't think you will need to worry about that low sign up thing any longer.

(Reuters)- The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday.

Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates.

The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama's administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch. It also shows that officials might still reach their initial goal of signing up 7 million people for private coverage by the time enrollment ends on March 31.

800,000 people have signed up in the few weeks between late December and January 15. This surge in enrollment means that the administration is only 300,000 behind their original target of 3.3 million enrollees. Once the full numbers for January are released, it is expected that the ACA will not only be on target, but may be ahead of schedule.

Yet if you like your health care plan you can keep your plan period!..
What a LIAR!
It won't be a truly socialistic endeavor until everyone is on Obamacare, he knows what he's doing.
