Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

The first public schools used the Bible to teach reading. Adults didn't shy away from their obligation to teach right from wrong.
Prayers and Bible reading were routinely done in public schools until the late 1960s. About the same time the progressive secularists got their hooks into the American psyche.
Students are now expelled for simply expressing their Christian beliefs wearing symbols or drawing religious themes in art classes. Adults are now afraid to teach right from wrong because of the politically correct poison that has confused the role of student/teacher relationships.
Everyone accepts one belief system cannot be favored over another in public schools. However, simply allowing parents to choose a private school over a public school with the freedom of choice to do so is no longer considered American.
Think about that...freedom of choice is not considered American.
Still got that chip on your shoulder I see. You're comparing the nations schools to the one you attended which BTW may or may not have been integrated. Recall separate but equal?

No official prayer or structured bible study/reading in my high school.

And many parents send their children to private or parochial
schools while feeling very American, there are scores of those types of schools in Central Florida. Did you know that Tim Tebow was home schooled only going to the public school for athletic practice and games at Nease High School?

Based on your posts it's my guess that you were a school administrators nightmare.

RIVERSIDE, Calif.-- RIVERSIDE, Calif.(AP)— A California judge ruled Thursday that a 13-year-old boy who was 10 when he killed his neo-Nazi father will spend at least the next seven years in a state juvenile facility.
Judge Jean R. Leonard said the maximum the boy can serve would be until he is 23. He'll be eligible for parole in seven years
The decision came after prosecutors and defense attorneys argued for months about the best placement to assure his safety and rehabilitation.

His attorneys say the boy was severely abused and has serious emotional and learning disabilities from a brutal and twisted childhood.
The Riverside County boy shot Jeffrey Hall, 32, at point-blank range as he slept on a sofa on their home on May 1, 2011, after a night of drinking.
Neo-nazi??... No doubt a jew hating demokrat... called ghetto dem...

Appeals Court Strikes Down ACA Contraceptive Mandate
November 1, 2013 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
WASHINGTON (UPI)— A U.S. appeals court in Washington Friday struck down part of the Affordable Care Act, ruling mandated coverage of contraception “trammels” religious freedom.
It is no secret that the DC Circuit Court of Appeals has a Republican majority and has been working to advance the GOP agenda for some time now.

Janice Rogers Brown, who wrote the decision you referenced is a huge Ayn Rand fan who referred to the Supreme Court decisions upholding minimum-wage laws as "the triumph of our socialist revolution."

It will be a waste of Supreme Court time should they decide to hear any of these cases on the contraceptive issue. The employee's right to access birth control trammels an employers personal agenda.

The problem is that you are delusional. Even if you were worth a million; one open heart surgery will wipe you out completely without insurance. The medications needed thereafter could cost $400 per prescription without insurance.
You just come on here and spew your nonsense for nothing. No one knows when illness or and accident can befall him.
That's great if nothing ever happens to you, but what are the odds?
Taxpayers will foot the bill for Flack and Galt if they need expensive health care because these two morons don't understand the risk of being without insurance. They are are basically on welfare right now by not paying for insurance because taxpayers will be stuck with this "free" health care while they pocket premiums.

Republicans in Hell

While walking down the street one day, a Republican head of state is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in." says the Republican.

"Well, I'd like to but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Republican head of state.

"I'm sorry but we have our rules." And with that, St. Peter escorts the Republican to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a club and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him, everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, hug him, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at expense of the people. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. Also present is the Devil (a Republican, too), who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are having such a good time that, before he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a big hug and waves while the elevator
rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit Heaven." So 24 hours pass with the Republican head of state joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well then, you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity."

He reflects for a minute, then the head of state answers: "Well, I would never have thought it, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell."

So Saint Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he is in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags. The Devil comes over to the Republican and lays an arm on his neck.

"I don't understand," stammers the Republican head of state. Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and club and we ate lobster and caviar and danced and had a great time. Now all there is a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.

The Devil looks at him, smiles and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted for us!"

You keep spouting off about insurance when it's obvious you don't understand the concept as you don't see the need to have any. You're just a freeloader using the government you hate as your free carrier while the rest of us pay into private insurance providers.

You'd think DBWriter would show up for at least a cameo on the weekend just to pretend he doesn't work here. He is a 8 hour morning shift employee of a conservative group spreading their propaganda on the internet. There's been around a million hits on this Topix site making it a great spot to place a shill. At the very least he's a volunteer to a fanatic organization that methodically spreads their message in an organized carpet bombing of the Internet.

Townspeople attack DemoKKKrat Congressman with pitchforks

POTTSVILLE - A Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania on Friday rebuked President Barack Obama's insistence that people could keep their health insurance under the federal health care law, but he did not waver from his support for the law in front of a critical, skeptical and answer-seeking town hall meeting crowd.

Rep. Matt Cartwright, a freshman, held the meeting on the law in the wake of an uproar over its website woes and insurers discontinuing plans that don't meet the law's standards. He acknowledged that Obama should not have said that the law would allow everybody to keep their health insurance plan, if they wanted to keep it.

"He shouldn't have said that," Cartwright said, as some of the approximately 100 attendees seated in the Sovereign Majestic Theater salted in their own criticism.

"It's a lie," called out several people, including Lola Smith, who was notified in recent weeks that her health care plan - with its approximately $240 premium for basic health care, but no dental or prescription coverage - will disappear.

Cartwright started again, "What he should have said " before attendee Smith, 63, interrupted him.

"It doesn't matter what he should have said," she finished.

On Sunday the Preacher was ranting again, this time it was about the evils of alcohol:-

"If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

With even greater emphasis, he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

And then, finally, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river." He sat down.

The Organist struck up and the Choirmaster announced with a grin, "For our closing song, let us sing 'Shall We Gather At the River."

The fact that an employer does not pay for birth control does not in any way restrict the employees access to birth control.

I apologize, by writing at an intellectual level of an educated sane adult Eman was rudely left out of the conversation. Here's a version for the mentally impaired:
My neighbors wife had a liver transplant and after three weeks in intensive care she rejected the liver and passed away. His (bill, bills, cost, total, fees) were $440,000. Insurance covered all but $40.
Galt and Flack claim they save money by not having insurance and paying cash for all their health care costs. My point was that they were either very rich or very stupid.
My guess is that all three of you fall in the later category.
Your neighbor's terminally-ill alcoholic wife never should have received the liver transplant, unless your neighbor could afford the cost and wanted to waste his money. Unfortunately, someone who might have survived was deprived of a liver.

Galt never discusses his personal affairs and only a fool like you would infer anything about Galt's insurance.
