Sub teachers in North Carolina ( or any other school district in the country ) get NO BENEFITS at all. That's why they are part time. Even their full time teachers got 1 raise since 2008. Obamacare didn't reduce their hours, the school districts did, that's why it's a lie. Obamacare doesn't reduce anyone's hours, it's the employer that reduces hours. But that cant sink in to you, can it ?
The law states if you have employees that work at least 30 hours a week, you have to give them healthcare, Sub teachers were hardly working 30 hours a week , in fact most weren't,( in North Carolina ) This is just a ploy for any school district to reduce their sub teachers hours to get out of paying their healthcare . If the law states that you have to have a teachers certificate to teach, then you have to follow that law.
Same with Obamacare. follow the law. As in Tennessee and other states , those states are laying off full time teachers to hire more sub teachers so they pay NO healthcare. It's a scam that the schools are using to pay out NO healthcare at all to subs and full time teachers. North Carolina isn't the only state to do this, it's been known since last year. LOL! So keep posting your bullshit on Obamacare cutting hours, he isn't . Obamacare is the LAW, so employees can cry and whine all they want to, give them healthcare or reduce their hours, the employers choice NOT Obama's........ And I bet the sub teachers would love to have some benefits on their job. Millions have benefited from Obamacare,it's here to stay and it aint going away, it's benefitting millions of Americans ,the lastest numbers I got were over 10 million so far , including people on Medicare and Medicaid .
PS..... look up different schools in the country, this is old news,,,,,,,,,,where were you when GW Bush was losing 800,000 jobs a month, it sure wasn't job cuts from Obamacare....... LMAO!

==========
Florida Democrat: Without Immigration Reform, Where Will We Get Our Landscapers and Maids?
February 25, 2014

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said immigration reform was important at a Tuesday debate because, without it, it would be difficult for employers to find people to clean hotel rooms and do landscaping.

“Immigration reform is important in our country,” she said.“We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.”

Evidently, without this reform, these blue-collar jobs will fall into the hands of illegal aliens.

The dems have no candidate, no name recognition and no alternative plan and very little cash. The vast majority of voters that are not rabid democrat mouth pieces agree with what Corbett has done. All the noise about Corbett is coming from a small minority of loudmouths funded by union money. The same happened in Wisconsin as is going to happen in Pa. Corbett will be reelected in a landslide and there's nothing you can do about it. Enjoy.

I think your drinking water right out of Lake Erie. Here's is your problem.......You cant pull up ONE website where Corbett has high ratings as a Governor, secondly he's behind all the polls for re election. Third, he doesn't charge the gas drilling companies any extraction tax , where as all other states do.
Pa needs that tax money that could mount in millions of dollars. Fourth, the gas drilling companies have given him money for his campaign that totaled in the millions. Corbett is all in favor of polluting underground water across the state of Pa and discharging fracking polluted water in streams, creeks and rivers across Pa.
Fifth,Corbett raised gas tax on January 1, 2014 to 9 cents a gallon, then another 9 cents on Jan 2015, then another hike of 12 cents a gallon in 2016. WOW!
Sixth, Corbett covered up child molester Jerry Sandusky and turns his head .
Not a bad resume if you want to lose another election ! LMAO!
Corbett's ratings now are as bad as GW Bush's was when Bush and his war crime left in 2009.

Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett is country's 'most vulnerable'?

USA Today has deemed Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett "America’s most vulnerable governor." Corbett, a Republican in his first term, has seven Democrats lined up to try to boot him from office.

A Quinnipiac University poll released today showed York County businessman Tom Wolf posting the greatest margin of victory over Corbett from the Democratic field. Wolf would defeat Corbett 52-33 percent, according to the poll.

USA Today writes:

Just 1 in 4 registered voters in Pennsylvania believe he deserves another term, including less than half of his own party. In December, he earned his worst-ever net approval rating in the Quinnipiac University poll. And that number was generous compared to another fall survey which tracked his approval rating all the way down to 24 percent.

Before this reporter can even rattle off one of those dour statistics, Corbett places his fork down and interrupts.“How do you separate, when you ask that question, how do you separate that from how they feel about the country? Because I think it’s bleed-over from the country. They think the country’s on the wrong track. It’s very hard to separate,” he contends.

When it’s noted that his name has been polled specifically and separately from President Barack Obama, Corbett offers up another explanation – and an unintentional concession – of a failure to communicate.

Corbettt is getting ready to deploy his golden parachute.

Ralph Nader: Obama the ’executioner’
2/25/14

In his new book, Ralph Nader calls for the end of “unconstitutional wars and unchecked militarism”— and lays blame on President Barack Obama for going beyond even George W. Bush.

Nader writes in “Unstoppable” that Obama “has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody, anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely defined as anti-U.S. security.”
Continue Reading

He continues,“Inspired by the military actions of the Clinton administration, the Obama and Bush teams made a seamless transition into a militarized foreign policy, extending even further the illegal reach of wars of choice, invasions, incursions, and drone attacks, carried out irrespective of national sovereignties.”

Sebelius slashes Obamcare enrollment expectations, blames CBO
02/25/2014

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius lowered the bar on expected Obamcare enrollments by March 31, contradicting her pre-rollout support of a 7 million signup estimate by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Sebelius appeared Tuesday on a “Huffington Post Live” interview moderated by Marc Lamont Hill, who asked the secretary about Vice President Joe Biden’s claim that 5.6 million enrollments would be a success.

“That’s 1 million to 2 million short of the 7 million mark that the administration set,” Hill noted.“Do you agree with Vice President Biden that five or six [million] is a much more realistic mark than seven?”

Once again the Daily Caller owned and operated by FOX news commentator is Tucker Carlson.... another Glenn Beck without the chalkboard.

The 2 videos shown on the website are not complete videos ....just sound bytes taken out of context.....LOL!

But on to most important issues:

Tucker Carlson Calls Bigotry ‘Tolerance’ and Equal Treatment for Gays ‘Fascism’

With the political world waiting on tenterhooks for Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) to decide whether she’ll veto Arizona’s SB1062, which prevents the government from compelling individuals to act in a way that would “substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion,” Fox News host and Daily Caller publisher Tucker Carlson bravely came to the defense of bigots, and called out the “fascism” of affording equal protection to gay people with regard to public accommodations like the sale of wedding cakes.

Media Matters flagged an exchange, on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, in which Carlson takes the half-baked conservative attempt to pervert the word “tolerance” to include bigotry, and kicks it up a Godwinian notch.“If I don’t want to bake you a cake for your gay wedding, that’s okay too, or should be,” Carlson says.“That’s called tolerance. But when you try and force me to bake a cake for your gay wedding and threaten me with prison if I don’t, that’s called fascism.”

He goes on to call it “insane,” and “fascism” one more time, but the real stars of this clip are Alan Colmes and, yes, Martha MacCallum. You expect Colmes to make all the right, obvious-to-any-5th-grader points, like how the broad language of the law would allow other types of discrimination (contrary to Carlson’s belief, opposition to racial intermarriage also goes back a long way, and still exists), or that it could extend to situations more serious than a large pastry, like refusing medical treatment.

But it was MacCallum who really shined by stepping in, as the anchor, and authoritatively keeping Carlson on track when he strayed into a side-point about whether opposing gay marriage makes you a klansman.“That is the argument,” she said.“You’re either open for business, or not open for business. You can’t choose based on different criteria, any more than a Muslim bakery can say you can’t come in here without your head covered to shop here. You can’t do that.”

Slow clap for Martha MacCallum.

This was followed by Carlson apparently supporting the right of forced head-coverings in bakeries, and then arguing that bakers should be able to ban conduct that there are already laws against.“You can’t come into my bakery naked. You can’t come in here and use vulgar language,” he said.

The fact is, you’re free to be a bigot in America, but in certain situations, you’re not free to act on that bigotry. To extend Carlson’s absurd logic, if that same baker’s religion prevented him from serving Jews, it would be “fascism” to compel him to do so. You could say that takes the cake, at least until Tucker Carlson gets his way.

You're well presented argument contains way too much logic for this eternal dickhead. Like so many of his dickheaded Tea Party bretheren who are not capable of this type of logical thought processing. They absorb Faux News faux facts and get hyped up on that garbage like a kid whose eaten to many candy bars and goes into strange hyper tantrums. This guys especially dim witted and its a complete waste of time responding to him but I admit its kinda fun because he's such a odd ball stooge that it feels good to have such a moronic specimen to unload on....just to combat the ignorance from its source.....the Americans for Prosperity organization that pays him less than minimum wage for posting their "talking points". He as happy as a pig in duty too and is proud to make less than minimum wage.

Convicted Terrorist Worked as Obamacare Navigator in Illinois

* Woman involved in deadly terror bombings kept her past secret from authorities in President's home state.
February 26, 2014

A terrorist from Jordan briefly worked as an Obamacare navigator in Illinois while authorities remained unaware of her conviction for involvement in a deadly grocery store bombing and two other attacks.

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in several bombings, including the 1969 attack on an upscale Shufersol grocery store, which killed two Hebrew University students who had stopped in to buy groceries for a hiking trip in the Jerusalem hills. Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe were killed by a bomb hidden in a candy box tucked on a shelf, which also injured nine or 10 others, according to a website maintained by the Israeli government to commemorate terror victims.
...
Odeh, who has as many as nine aliases, was indicted in October for allegedly lying on her U.S. immigration and naturalization application papers. On Dec. 9, 2004, she had been sworn in as a U.S. citizen in a district court in Michigan, the same state where bombing victim Kanner had spent six months studying English. If Odeh is convicted, she could lose her U.S. citizenship and serve up to 10 years in prison. Separately, the Illinois Insurance Code permits civil penalties to be levied after a hearing on any Obamacare navigator whose certificate has been denied, suspended or revoked.

Odeh declined National Review’s interview request.

Health law cybersecurity challenges
February 25, 2014

As the Obama administration raced to meet its self-imposed deadline for online health insurance markets, security experts working for the government worried that state computer systems could become a back door for hackers.

Documents provided to The Associated Press show that more than two-thirds of state systems that were supposed to tap into federal computers to verify sensitive personal information for coverage were initially rated as ‘‘high risk’’ for security problems.

Back-door attacks have been in the news, since the hackers who stole millions of customers’ credit and debit card numbers from Target are believed to have gained access through a contractor’s network.
