WASHINGTON — Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. It's a new,$63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

LOL - 63 dollars huh? The insurance companies gouge us out of more than that about every visit we make for fine print that they won't pay for, so that is a small price to pay compared to the rate (if they can get insurance at all) people with pre-existing conditions pay.

WHEN DOCTORS AND NURSES ARE TAKING PART IN KILLING SOMEONE,, THAT IS MURDER.
HOW MANY PEOPLE PAY A HIGH PRICE FOR THOSE IN POWER IN MEDICAL THAT DO DIRTY WORK FOR THOSE IN POWER AND THEIR COLLEAGUES , PLAYING GOD WITH HUMAN LIFE.
i TRY TO BRING OUT THE EVIL OF BOTH PARTIES , AND THOSE IN POWER THEY GET SUPPORT FROM, NOT SWEEP DIRT UNDER THE RUG.

But this American Navy Seal did exist, he did have a life, maybe a husband, son, Father, until he was killed trying to save some Americans that had no business in a war zone.
I believe Morning Star would do a better job here in East Tennessee, helping Americans that can't get health care, or even shoes on their feet.

Who are you to decide whether or not someone has business in a war zone?

Part of becoming a Seal is knowing that you may have to sacrifice your life.

I find it interesting that you feel such compassion for this Seal, but absolutely nothing for the four that were needlessly killed in Benghazi. At least the parents of this Seal know what happened. The parents of the Benghazi dead, still don't know, and they are being stonewalled by a president who doesn't want to admit he screwed up.

In a trial, small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness,an elderly women to the stand.As he approached her,he asked"Mrs.Jones,do you know me?"
"Yes,Mr.Williams,I know you."she replied."I've known you since you were a boy,and frankly you are a big disapointment to me.You lie ,you manipulate people and you talk about them behind their backs.You think you're a big shot ,but you haven't the brains to realize you will never amount to anything but a two-bit paper pusher."
The lawyer was stunned.Not knowing what else to do he pointed across the room and asked"Mrs.Jones,do you know the defense attorney"?
"Yes I do" she replied,I've know Mr Bradley since he was a youngster also.He is lazy and bigoted.He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the state".
The judge asked both attorneys to approach the bench.In a very quiet voice,he said"if either of you idiots askher if she knows me .I'll send you both to the electric chair".

I know this has already been posted once, but this give alittle different perspective on the Story, plus it explains it more fully. I thought it was important to know this information, also.

Stormy,
Some of us try to manage our stress without drugs, so quit adding to it by using those DAMNED CAPITALS, ok?
Just logging onto Topix every couple or three days takes enough courage, so go easy, ok?
About Dems and silence on legalizing weed, same sex marriage, etc., I believe the time has come to admit that (1) too much time and effort have gone into fighting marihuana and (2) too much hate and worry have gone into fighting something that should be very personal, i.e., choosing a mate.
Maybe if gays have rights like everyone else, they will stop those tacky parades and making *sses out of themselves.

Venting on a public forum does not gain her any progress.Like Kenny Roger's song,You got to know when to walk away and when to run.When you remove yourself,all of a sudden,the problems are not there anymore.
The more she stirs it the worse she will make it.write a journal,tell her story and move on with her life.Can't take on the whole city government.It can get a lot worse.Nothing TOPIX can help her solve.Putting her business out on the street is not in her favor.It can destroy her mind dweling on it all.Needs to put it away.Turn it over to GOD to solve.She's helpless.

FEMA is hiring! Who said there were no jobs.‘Course they are Federal gumint jobs, so there’s some catches.

A. They’re temporary. Don’t plan on no careers here.
B. Unlike voters, you need ID.
C. There’s no union protection, so don’t be expectin’ no double time pay or anything like that. You might even have to work 12 hour days! Horrors! And do it 7 days a week! Aghhhhhh……
D. Most require a bachelor’s degree – which explains why Obama keeps pushing education. Why you need one of these to dig people out of rubble we don’t know, but we’re not gonna hire no dummies. Tough sh_t for you high school dropouts.
E. You’ll need to pass security, so all those bush bashing Facebook posts might come back to haunt you.

Hey. Looky here. We got a position open that Obama might qualify for:

A) I guess it never occured to you that most jobs created as a result of a disaster/emergency are "temporary" right ?
B) You and I do not have a constitutionally GUARANTEED right to a government job...but we do have one to vote.
C) The Federal Govt. WILL pay overtime to those that work over 40 hours a week.
D) Key word "Most".
E) I suspect there will be a LOT more radicals disqualified for Obama bashing on the internet than there will be for Bush bashing, remember any of the Bush bashers signing petitions demanding the dissolution of the Union ? Me neither ! Chuckles !!

Like price gouging and other unsavory practices in the wake of a disaster, it seems that rumors are floating around the social media sites about free cash, food stamps, lucrative pay for volunteers and tent cities, all being given out by FEMA.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is making an effort to put a stop to the rumors. Those wishing to view the article may go to the official FEMA web site. The following is an on-going list of the rumors and their status, according to FEMA.

Cash Cards

It is being said that FEMA is handing out cash cards to people affected by the storm. This is FALSE.(11-5)
Those people affected by the storm and in need of assistance should register on line at www.disasterassistance.gov , or call 1-800-621-FEMA.

Food Stamps

Likewise, it is being said that FEMA is issuing food stamps to people in New York and New Jersey affected by the storm. This is FALSE.(11-3)
Again, please register on line at www.disasterassistance.gov , or call 1-800-621-FEMA.

Hiring by FEMA

It is rumored that FEMA is paying up to $1,000 for people to go to New York and New Jersey to clean up debris after the storm. This is FALSE (11-5)
FEMA is hiring cleanup crews to assist in the cleanup in New York and New Jersey.(11-2) This is FALSE.(11-2)
For information on how to volunteer or assist those in need, www.serve.gov/sandy .

Shelter/Tent Cities

It was inaccurately reported by a radio station that FEMA had set up a tent city at the Monmouth Race Track in New Jersey for people displaced by the storm. This is also FALSE.(11-5)
The tents at Monmouth Race Track were set up for first responders, utility and construction workers as a place to rest up and get food and water.
For those in need of shelter, go to www.redcross.og r/find-help/shelter.

Water

It has been reported on the social media sites that FEMA is out of bottled water. This is entirely FALSE.(11-3)
It has also been rumored that the Old Bridge Township water system in Old Bridge New Jersey has failed. This too is FALSE.(11-3)
FEMA is providing water to their state partners for distribution. For New York locations and times of food and water distribution centers and daytime warming centers, go on line to www.nyc.gov .
It has been reported that the water system in Old Bridge, New Jersey is safe and there are no restrictions on it's use.
