<quoted text>"Predictions of an Obamacare apocalypse seem a little less credible today, thanks to California.
On Thursday, officials in that state offered the first detailed glimpse of what consumers buying health benefits on their own can expect to pay next year. And from the looks of things, these consumers will be getting a pretty good deal." ..."It’s hard to provide a precise figure on premiums in the new exchange, which is officially called Covered California, because so much depends on individual circumstances, plan selection, and region. But you can get a sense of the prices by looking at what a 40-year-old single person would pay, on average, for the second cheapest “silver” plan on the new market. Such a plan, which would cover about 70 percent of a typical person’s medical expenses, would go for about $300 a month or around $3,600 a year. That compares favorably with what insurance costs today. The typical employer plan, for example, presently costs about $5,500 a year. Employer plans are generally more generous than the silver plans would be, so you’d expect them to be more expensive—but not by such a large margin."

Can you "guesstimate" how many people will not be able to fill out a 20-page online application for Obamacare? Or just give up?

What happens then?

If people have no money after being fined by the IRS for not having insurance come January 1, what happens then?

How can the federal government which can't even keep up with Veterans' benefits...has no way of monitoring the waste and fraud in welfare...who can't even figure out who knew what in the IRS scandal...enforce Obamacare for millions of Americans?

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."... Quote: Former Slave Booker T. Washington 1911..

People on both sides have been jumping to conclusions rather than waiting for the evidence to be presented.
I can't wait to hear the DNA evidence. I will be interested to hear whether or not any of Martin's DNA was found on Zimmerman's holster. There is so much that hasn't been released or explained due to Florida's public disclosure laws. I know you strongly believe that Zimmerman is guilty of murder. I just don't know but am confident justice will prevail.
MSNBC and others bigoted News Outlets knowing altered pictures and facts to make Zimmerman look guilty and racist...

Meanwhile, Zimmerman's mountain of attorney's will own both MSNBC, the lame stream media, Race Cop Al Shapton and your hate filled racist left-wing party...

Yes, and here's a super example of taking action to fix a problem:
Gary Wozniak is cultivating an urban farming initiative in Detroit that he says could create 18,000 new jobs in the city over the next two decades. Those kind of numbers are likely to perk up the ears of job-seekers in the Motor City, where the unemployment rate hovers around 23 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Wozniak, a former financial consultant, is the driving force behind a nonprofit called RecoveryPark, which is developing three separate but related agricultural projects: an urban farm spread out over a 2,475-acre zone on Detroit's east side, a food processing center and an indoor fish farm.(Click here for a slideshow of Detroit's up-and-coming development projects.)
Talk about large-scale urban agriculture in Detroit in recent years has largely focused on financial services magnate John Hantz, whose plan for the world's largest urban farm evolved into a deal last year to create a 140-acre commercial tree-farming operation in the city.
The nonprofit RecoveryPark, initiated in 2008, has a very different focus. The operation is looking to hire ex-prisoners and recovering drug addicts, people who usually face barriers to employment. That's a mission close to Wozniak's heart; a recovering addict who spent three and a half years in federal prison because of drug-related activity, the project is a chance for him to give back to others who are recovering.

RealDave (Stupid Serve you Well) The President was asked is Egypt an ally of the United States? Obama said “I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy!! So Dave until that question can be answered is Egypt an ‘Ally or Not’ we should stop all financial aid…Right?
The rest of that quote: "They are a new government trying to find its way, they were democratically elected. I think we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident, to see how they respond to maintaining the peace treaty with Israel.”

The kid doesn't even have a record! only way stand your ground defense should is if Martin shot Zimmerman. That kid was minding his business, walking to his fathers house. Can someone tell me what was Martin to do when he realizes that this person stalking him is now out of the car approaching him? What would you do being a whiteman if you were walking home & a hispanic man first follows you in his car, then gets out & approaches you?

School Report: Trayvon Martin Found with 'Jewelry and Burglary Tool'

Submitted by Zach Lisabeth on Mar 26, 2012

Recently divulged information about Trayvon Martin's checkered academic history has added a new dimension to the very public discussion about the deceased teenager's month-old shooting.

As it turns out, Martin was suspended a number of times from Krop Senior High School in Miami Gardens for infractions ranging from tardiness and truancy up to possession of marijuana and a screwdriver that the school's security staff described as a "burglary tool."

The troubling incidents date back to October 2011, when Martin was allegedly caught with a horde of women's jewelry and the aforementioned screwdriver, according the Miami Herald. According to a report issued by Trayvon's school district, on October 21, security camera footage showed Trayvon Martin and two other students writing "W.T.F." on a hallway locker. A security guard saw the footage, detained Trayvon and searched his bag for the offending marker. In the process of the search, the guard uncovered 12 pieces of women's jewelry, a watch and the screwdriver.
