Obama: You Might Lose Your Doctor Under Obamacare
Mar 14, 2014
President Obama is warning Americans that they might have to change doctors because of Obamacare:
"For the average person, many folks who don't have health insurance initially, they're going to have to make some choices. And they might end up having to switch doctors, in part because they're saving money," said Obama in an interview with the medical website WebMD.
...
This is different than what Obama said when he was selling Obamacare. "If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too. The only change youíll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold," said Obama in his weekly address on June 6, 2009.

Are liberal judges to blame for Roe v. Wade?
.
Did liberal justices hijack the Supreme Court in 1973, forcing legalized abortion on the whole country? A quick look at the Justices who made that horrendous decision seems to suggest otherwise.
With Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court voted overwhemingly to support legalized abortion in the United States 7 to 2. Who was in the Majority and who was in the Minority?
Majority
Harry Blackmun
Warren E. Burger
William O. Douglas
William J. Brennan
Potter Stewart
Thurgood Marshall
Lewis Powell
Minority
Byron White
William Rehnquist
The Majority Justices must have all been liberals, yes? Perhaps appointed by Democratic presidents? Wrong. Blackmun, who penned the Supreme Courtís final Majority opinion, was appointed by Republican President Richard Nixon. Also appointed by Nixon were Burgher and Powell. So far, three of the seven Justices in the Majority were appointed by a Republican President. But do not forget that Brennan and Stewart were appointed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower. This means that five of the seven Majority Justices were appointed by Republican presidents (Douglas and Marshall were appointed by Democratic Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson, respectively). Whatís more, take the two Democratic-appointed judges out of the Majority, and you are still left with all-Republican majority of the Court that legalizes abortion.
Only White (appointed by Democratic President John F. Kennedy) and Renquist (appointed by Nixon) opposed the Courtís decision to legalize abortion in the United States.

Yeah but that was before the Republican Party went all gays-guns-god on us. Remember, back when they weren't a punchline freak show? Back when all they cared about was money and staying out of our lives? Back when they were a legitimate political force headed by rational, reasonable men?

Now they're a Perry-Bachman ticket away from being the Whigs 2.0.

Study: Global Warming Will Cause 180,000 More Rapes by 2099

Global warming isn't just going to melt the Arctic and flood our citiesóit's also going to make Americans more likely to kill each other.

That's the conclusion of a controversial new study that uses historic crime and temperature data to show that hotter weather leads to more murders, more rapes, more robberies, more assaults, and more property crimes.

Even the playing field. Put good teachers in the urban schools (yes, that means we'll have to pay them). Provide employment and vocational training. Expand access to higher education drastically. That's how to start. Still have to do something about the overwhelming disparity among police treatment of minorities in cities and somehow expand our safety nets to ensure kids are worried about school instead of dinner. But the big fix will come when we stop incarcerating drug addicts and start getting them medical help. But people who know nothing about addiction don't like that plan, so it won't happen. Even if you show them how Europe ended their drug problems (check out Portugal's drug laws and rates of abuse - no laws, lowest rates of abuse), they still won't do anything.

Justice Department reportedly blocked FBI probe over Reid, Lee accusations
March 14, 2014

The Justice Department reportedly has blocked the FBI from launching a federal probe into accusations involving Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, leaving agents to work with local prosecutors to examine the evidence on the side.

The Washington Times reported Friday that two local Utah prosecutors, one Democrat and one Republican, are now working on a wide-ranging corruption investigation. As part of that, they apparently uncovered accusations of wrongdoing by the two U.S. senators.

But the Justice Department reportedly blocked FBI agents from using a federal grand jury and subpoenas to test whether they or other officials committed any violations.

Both local prosecutors are speaking out, saying the claims should at least be looked into. Their offices are doing so, with some assistance from FBI agents.

I realize you're a democrat, but has Fox News invaded your psyche somehow? As a democrat, are you not required to grasp the entirety of a situation before making potentially offensive and incorrect statements?

Crime comes from poverty. To deny that is to deny reality. I am unaware of any intellectual that doesn't acknowledge this undeniable fact.

Disparity in police treatments? YES. And it truly could not be more obvious. The clearest example is almost laughable. Blacks and whites smoke pot at about the same rate (whites usually have a slight edge). But why are marijuana arrests occurring at THREE TIMES the rate within the black community than the white one (nevermind they are 1/6 the population). That's a disparity, and it isn't an isolated one.

Blacks commit the highest rate of violent crime? Not when you consider population living in poverty. It's not even close.

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in...

Taxpayers are propping them up? Totally ridiculous. More taxpayer dollars go to the rich by a factor of four. Whites DOMINATE welfare rolls. Predominantly white, rural states (Alabama, Mississippi,. Kentucky) DESTROY those with high numbers of blacks in urban areas when it comes to people living on the dole.

The urban danger myth - White gunnuts will shoot you long before a black gangbanger. Sorry, it's just a fact. Cities are safer.

http://science.time.com/2013/07/23/in-town-ve...

Like I said, as long as we invest less in the urban, black communities but expect them to perform with the white ones we do invest in, we will be stuck in this ignorance. Until we acknowledge that they get the shitty schools, the shitty teachers, the shitty cops, the shitty job opportunities and the shitty housing opportunities, we will always get shitty results.

That isn't reverse racism. It isn't making excuses. It isn't preferential treatment. It's common sense.

Obamacare Fails Uninsured

Crownsville, MD

The Washington Post

New health insurance marketplaces signing up few uninsured Americans, two surveys find
March 6

The new health insurance marketplaces appear to be making little headway in signing up Americans who lack insurance, the Affordable Care Actís central goal, according to a pair of new surveys.

Only one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private plans through the new marketplaces enrolled as of last month, one of the surveys shows. The other found that about half of uninsured adults have looked for information on the online exchanges or planned to look.

We now have over 5 million people insured in this country that weren't insured before, I'd say Obamacare is working, by the end of March, 2014, totals could reach as high as 7 million.

Despite what the critics say, Obamacare is work

Despite the treasured right-wing talking points, itís increasingly clear that Obamacare is a success. Moreover, in places where Obamacare is not succeeding, itís also clear that the right wing is to blame. Well, itís clear to any who look at the state-by-state numbers of the newly insured. A whole lot of Americans will have to look, however, for the programís success to redound to Democratsí advantage.

Charles Gaba, an enterprising Web site designer, has taken it upon himself to track the number of Americans who have gained health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Tallying those who have signed up on the state and federal exchanges (2.1&#8201;million), those who have obtained Medicaid coverage (4.4 million) and those who gained coverage through the lawís requirement that private plans allow parents to cover their children up to age 26 (3.1 million), he cites more than 9 million newly insured through Obamacare.

Which is to say, the ACA is working as planned, perhaps a little better, in the states where governors and legislatures chose to implement it, such as California and New York. It is barely working in those states where governors and legislators have refused to implement it, such as Texas. Although the number of states declining any participation probably will diminish over time, as the tea partyís grip on the Republican Party wanes or as older white conservative voters die off, the resulting red-blue division between the states probably will be a feature of the nationís political economy for some time.

Consider the implications: A larger share of Californians will be able to afford regular medical check-ups than Texans. A smaller share of Californians is likely to be bankrupted by the expense of major medical treatment than Texans. When the lawís tax penalties take effect, a smaller share of Californians will be subject to the penalties that come with the individual mandates than will Texans. In the coming years, a smaller share of California hospitals will face financial risk for indigent care than hospitals in Texas, where fewer of the sick and poor will be covered by Medicaid.

The conservative argument that the ACA is a disaster is true only when itís a self-fulfilling prophecy: Most of the negative consequences that right-wingers have warned against have occurred only in those places where right-wingers have subverted implementation of the law. What supporters of the ACA must keep in mind, however, is that Americans who live in states where implementation has been stymied may continue to see the act as a failure and continue to blame President Obama and his party.

Park Service Knew World War II Veterans Would Be Locked Out
March 10, 2014
Internal e-mails reveal Interior feared being blamed, bent rules for its own staff.

The Department of the Interior knew beforehand that two groups of aging veterans would be visiting the World War II Memorial as the partial government shutdown began on Oct. 1 but decided to barricade the site anyway, according to e-mails obtained by National Review Online.

The newly released public records also show National Park Service employees busily monitoring the news for any bad publicity and making shutdown exceptions for their co-workers.

So you dumbasses blow $24 BILLION on a babyfit government shutdown that had exactly ZERO chance of succeeding in your objective, fold like the delusional p_ssies you are, then assert the notion that Obama has some responsibility in your failure and subsequent embarrassment?

Uh... no. Better try again.
