In Virginia, if a woman has a miscarriage at home, she has to bring it to the hospital so that it can be ruled out that she may have caused her own miscarriage; then they can charge her with murder.
The war on women is real and continuing. Women know this; but you and Jane are haters of women. Goes with the republican territory.
What is 'it' lily? a dead baby? wouldn't any normal woman, who has suffered a miscarriage, WANT to go to the hospital? Wait you are saying liberal women don't care about anything. Just flush and go to the bar--sounds probable.

A person doesn't have to be covered by an employer or the government to have health insurance. An ignoranmus who values concerts and lattes more than their health deserves to be targeted.
I'm tired of having tax payer dollors pay for their free emergency room visits and wouldn't mind seeing them turned away at the hospital door if they couldn't prove they were financially able to pay. Guess one could refer to that as "Preventive Maintenance".
Besides the thousands who got waivers to save themselves from this monstrosity and the states who were smart enough to opt out - if you and every other person in this country doesn't have some sort of insurance - personal, employer, government or otherwise - on January 1, the IRS is going to make you and anyone else pay for this blatant disobedience.

A homeless man was asked on the street if he supported Obamacare. He said he was all for it. But when asked if he was prepared to pay a fine for not having it, he looked puzzled and said "I don't have any money...how are they going to get it from me!"

Welcome to the wonderful and confusing world of Obamacare. That poor man doesn't even have a computer - much less would know how to fill out a 20-page online application to get Obamacare.

But you can bet the IRS doesn't care about any of that. So what are they going to do when thousands and thousands of others simply don't pay up?

The recorded evidence that American LAdy posted proved that Zimmerman was pursuing Trayvon. Per Zimmerman himself.
If Trayvon turned to confront his stalker, it was Trayvon who was protected by 'stand your ground', you nitwit.
Zimmerman was the attacker, but he misunderestimated the 17 year old.
Typical of racist punks..........like you.
Funny how you racists ignore the evidence and make up stories.

Nothing. Correct?

Neither is a poor person. You don't have to accept any medicare. There are people who are retired and are healthy that would sooner not pay the 100 plus dollars to have medicare. And what about the retired military, they don't have to pay to have medicare either. So it these people don't want to pay for medicare--why do you think anyone is going to pay for O'bamacare? stupid O'bamacare. Only a sickness orientated shrill like yourself is touting O'bamacare--why else would you?

So what did they have in mind to remove Saddam from power and initiate a democratic government to replace his regime? Ask them nicely? I'm sure the insurgents would have politely stepped aside and Saddam willingly allowed himself to be led away in handcuffs.
This is just how naive Democrats are.
They can bark real loud but when it comes to putting their teeth into anything that might upset their base and their precious seats of power, they whimper and pee their pants.
You should be embarrassed just by association.
Obama deserves to win the Naive Lib Pandering Fool Award.

...John Lennon, bumper-sticker foreign policy — Imagine World Peace. Obama pretends that the tide of war is receding. But it’s demonstrably not. It’s metastasizing to Mali, to the Algerian desert, to the North African states falling under the Muslim Brotherhood, to Yemen, to the savage civil war in Syria, now spilling over into Lebanon and destabilizing Jordan. Even Sinai, tranquil for 35 years, is descending into chaos.

It’s not war that’s receding. It’s America. Under Obama. And it is precisely in the power vacuum left behind that war is rising. Obama declares Assad must go. The same wish-as-policy fecklessness from our bystander President. Two years — and 70,000 dead — later, Obama keeps repeating the wish even as the tide of battle is altered by the new arbiters of Syria’s future — Iran, Hezbollah and Russia. Where does every party to the Syrian conflict go on bended knee? To Moscow, as Washington recedes into irrelevance.

But the ultimate expression of Obama’s Dorothy Doctrine is Guantanamo. It must close. Must, mind you.

Okay. Let’s accept the dubious proposition that the Yemeni prisoners could be sent home without coming back to fight us. And that others could be convicted in court and put in U.S. prisons.

Now the rub. Obama openly admits that “even after we take these steps, one issue will remain — just how to deal with those Gitmo detainees who we know have participated in dangerous plots or attacks but who cannot be prosecuted.”

Well, yes. That’s always been the problem with Gitmo. It’s not a question of geography. The issue is indefinite detention — whether at Gitmo, a Colorado supermax or St. Helena.

Can’t try ’em, can’t release ’em. Having posed the central question, what is Obama’s answer?“I am confident that this legacy problem can be resolved.”

That’s it! I kid you not. He’s had four plus years to think this one through — and he openly admits he’s got no answer.

Because there is none. Hence the need for Gitmo. Other wars end, at which point prisoners are repatriated. But in this war, the other side has no intention of surrender or armistice. They will fight until the caliphate is established or until jihadism is as utterly defeated as fascism and communism.

That’s the reason — the only reason — for the detention conundrum. There is no solution to indefinite detention when the detainees are committed to indefinite war.

Obama’s fantasies are twinned. He can no more wish the detention away than he can the war.

We were defenseless on 9/11 because, despite Osama Bin Laden’s open, written declaration of war in 1996, we pretended for years that no war against us had even begun. Obama would return us to pre-9/11 defenselessness — casting Islamist terror as a law-enforcement issue and removing the legal basis for treating it as armed conflict — by pretending that the war is over.

It’s enough to make you weep.

Funny I don't see the word 'invasion' or 'by direct American intervention' there, do you??
The words 'support efforts' mean just what?? Basically nothing.
We also 'support efforts' to remove Assad in Syria. Note we didn't invade.
It took a hateful fool like Cheney to promote a war with Iraq. Cheney was in charge, Bush went along.
Bush didn't have the balls to stand up to Cheney until his second term.
But Bush got even by not pardoning Scooter Libby!! LOL
Cheney is still pissed off about that.
Yeah, the Democrats were going to send Saddam Hussein a nicely written letter informing him we were taking over his regime.

Regime change was the clear intent written in the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.

The Democrats had no intention of doing anything. They just like to talk big. Ooooh...scary.
