Barack Obama, our next President

Sure Carol, we liberals don't put any value on education or take an active part in that of our children.

That's also why liberal states have higher high school and college graduation rates.
From those schools, all most likely with worthless degrees as far as employment prospects.

Term limits should be at the top of the republican platform in 2016. If they have any kahunas, it will be.
I'm holding out Rand Paul will be at least one future GOP candidate who puts country before party.
It's my guess moderates and independents would also get behind that candidate.

Obamacare Is the Right’s Worst Nightmare

News from New York: it looks as if insurance premiums on the individual market are going to plunge thanks to Obamacare. This shouldn’t come as a surprise; in fact, the New York experience perfectly illustrates why Obamacare had to look the way it does. And it also illustrates why conservatives should be terrified about this legislation, as it takes effect. Americans may have had a lot of misgivings in advance, thanks to vast, deliberately spread misinformation. But I agree with Matt Yglesias — unless the GOP finds even more ways to sabotage the plan, this thing is going to work, it’s going to be extremely popular, and it’s going to wreak havoc with conservative ideology.

....Where does the money for the subsidies come from? Partly by reducing corporate welfare: reducing overpayments for Medicare Advantage, reducing tax breaks for very generous insurance plans; partly with new taxes on the wealthy.

And while a few people will be hurt — young, healthy individuals too affluent to qualify for subsidies, wealthy taxpayers, etc.— a much larger number of people will be helped, some of them enormously.

Does this amount to “redistribution”? Well, yes — not as an end in itself, but yes, a lot of people will be made better off at the expense of an affluent few.

And Yglesias is right: there will be bobbles along the way, but this is going to become an immensely popular program. By the time Liz Cheney challenges Hillary Clinton’s reelection campaign, there will be signs at the rallies declaring “Don’t let the government get its hands on Obamacare!”

Conservatives are right to be hysterical about this: it’s an attack on everything they believe — and it’s going to make Americans’ lives better. What could be worse?

Trial outcomes depend on may things besides guilty or innocent. It does not change the fact that Zimmerman's actions ended up killing a unarmed teenage kid walking along a sidewalk in a community where his father was staying.
Maybe in your redneck la la land, that makes perfectly good sense.
Zimmerman was supposed to be a trained professional but made many mistakes that caused Martin's death.
John White (Long Island, NY) was convicted of second degree manslaughter in the shooting death of an unarmed white teenager; John White; is black. He was sentenced to 2-4 years, but was pardoned by Gov. Patterson after serving 5 months.
Why was he not charged at all? Why was he found guilty?
Take a guess.

Obamacare puts Republicans in a bind

As Greg noted earlier this morning, House Republicans are — again—holding a series of votes meant to chip away at the Affordable Care Act. By focusing on the employer mandate — recently delayed by the Obama administration—the votes are meant to put Democrats in a bind. The Washington Examiner explains:

A vote in support of the employer mandate delay could be perceived as admitting the president’s health care plan is flawed. Democrats who vote no will be accused by Republicans of going against the president’s wishes.

Likewise, Democrats who vote for the employer mandate delay but reject a delay for individuals will be accused by Republicans as favoring big businesses over ordinary working Americans.

None of these will pass, obviously, but they are meant to emphasize the extent to which Republicans are absolutely committed to ending the president’s health care law.

The problem for Republicans is that this is happening on the same day it was announced — by New York regulators — that the Affordable Care Act has reduced premiums in the state’s individual health care market. The New York Times reports that premiums are expected to 50 percent lower than what is currently available.

....Here’s why it’s important to juxtapose this with today’s vote in the House. As the law comes online in the next five months, untold numbers of uninsured Americans will either receive benefits through Medicaid, or they’ll begin to enter the exchanges, receive subsidies, and purchase health insurance. In short order, the Affordable Care Act will have created a constituency for itself — the millions of voters who receive benefits as a result of the law. It will yield countless politicians — at all levels of government — who will want to capitalize on this constituency by working to implement it as best as possible. And this isn’t just true for blue states — you’ll see a similar dynamic in red states, where exchanges will also exist.

It’s Republicans who are caught in a bind. Soon, they’ll either have to accommodate the law in order to satisfy their constituents, or continue their quest for repeal, and in the process, further harm their political standing.

We don't have basements in Florida dummy and, we have police for a reason. Trayvon Martin was the one who was threatened by Zimmerman and could have invoked the stand your ground law and beat him to death. If he was a badass, he would have beat him to a pulp, taken that babys gun, shot him and stolen his car. You know nothing you racist pos. Now, gfy
ongresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a senior member of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement today:

“Today was a questionable day as it relates to the life of a young child. America’s justice system is often viewed as coddling and protecting our children, the most vulnerable members of our society. As someone who has devoted much of my public life to advocating for the protection of children, whether from gun violence, bullying at school and in cyberspace, drugs, and unhealthy foodstuffs, I am dismayed that the Florida judicial system did not recognize and value the life of young Trayvon Martin. Trayvon’s family and friends missed him on the day he was killed and they still miss him today. They are right to wonder why others seemed to attach so little value to his life.

“The federal government stands to serve justice in cases where there is much doubt as to whether justice was done by the local authorities. I expect to join with others in discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the killing of Trayvon Martin, who was but 16 years and 21 days old when he was shot to death. I am also calling for the Congress to hold oversight hearings regarding the treatment of the killing of a juvenile in the circumstances that occurred in Sanford, Florida as well as the manner in which the criminal justice system treats victims of gun violence, especially young black male victims like Trayvon Martin.

“Many mothers tonight are praying, as I am, hopeful that things remain calm but also hoping that justice for young Trayvon Martin will be pursued.

“To the the young people who have grown to see Trayvon Martin as themselves, we encourage you to continue to invest in improving your nation, working with people of all backgrounds who feel as you do – disappointed – but will join with you in the fight for justice.

“We are all Trayvon.”

Juror Wants New Laws So That Future George Zimmermans Won’t Get Away With Murder
Zimmerman juror B 37 issued a statement to CNN calling for new laws that will enable juries to convict shooters like George Zimmerman.
The juror gave a statement to CNN today saying that she was done with interviews, and she called for new laws,“My prayers are with all those who have the influence and power to modify the laws that left me with no verdict option other than ‘not guilty’ in order to remain within the instructions. No other family should be forced to endure what the Martin family has endured.”

Crazy New Black Panther Conspiracy on Zimmerman Case
Watch:


Quote:
"Fox News guest J. Christian Adams, a right-wing blogger and author who previously worked for the Department of Justice and contributes to Pajamas Media and Breitbart, claimed on Monday morning that the New Black Panthers, and not the body of a teen killed by a gunshot wound, were secretly the real "spark" that kicked off George Zimmerman's murder trial.

Fox News is supporting a conspiracy theory that somehow the New Black Panthers are the ones who "sparked" the case against George Zimmerman... instead of the teenager Zimmerman shot dead. The claim is, of course, based on nothing. Cenk Uygur presents a perfect case in point for why we make fun of Fox News so much.
