"U.S. military commandos made it to Benghazi...

...a unit of eight special operators — mostly Delta Force and Green Beret members — were in Tripoli the night of the attack, on a counterterrorism mission that involved capturing weapons and wanted terrorists from the streets and helping train Libyan forces."

What was/is going on in Lybia? And didn't Obama promise no boots on the ground?

Your plan of paying cash for health care to avoid paying for insurance because its cheaper should make every intelligent person reading it shake their heads in disbelief. Some day you will thank Obama for the pre-existing conditions clause in Obamacare.

Vehicles & Small Engines
Because higher ethanol fuel blends (like E15 and E85) have less energy content than regular gasoline, they deliver lower fuel economy and cost consumers more money at the pump. They are also corrosive when used in most automobiles, meaning they can harm engines and compromise vehicle performance. Even so, our government is mandating increased ethanol in our fuels, putting biofuels mandates ahead of the safety and convenience of American consumers and manufacturers.
Decreased Fuel Economy
Ethanol contains 33 percent less energy per gallon than gasoline, and vehicles fueled with ethanol cover fewer miles per gallon than those running on conventional gasoline. The higher the ethanol blend, the lower the fuel economy, meaning consumers must fill up at the pump more frequently.
Damage to Vehicles and Performance
Beyond the damage to your wallet, ethanol can also damage vehicles and affect performance—corroding metals, causing rubber to swell and causing engines to break down more quickly. Some ethanol blends should not be used on certain engines and motors at all. EPA’s E15 waiver covers only 2001 and newer motor vehicles. E15 is not appropriate for heavy-duty vehicles or vehicles built before 2000, nor is it fit for boats and small motors, including those in lawnmowers and chainsaws.
Higher ethanol blends may also damage newer automobiles. A study from the Coordinating Research Council, commissioned by U.S. automakers and oil companies, found that 25 percent of cars approved by the EPA to run on E15 experienced engine damage—and even failure. The study estimates that at least 5 million cars currently on the road have similar characteristics to the cars that failed as part of the study.
Automakers, aware of the damage ethanol can cause, are now advising new owners not to fill up on E15. For newer vehicles still under warranty, use of E15 may constitute a violation of warranty terms, leaving customers on the hook for costly repair bills. Toyota and Lexus have even placed warning labels on gas caps, along with instructions in the owner’s manual not to use E15.
Intermediate blends may also cause some non-road engines and motors to run at higher temperatures and experience unintentional clutch engagement, according to a Government Accountability Office report.
Libtard logic!
"They can turn a cell phone into a mini computer in just a few short years but they cannot build an engine strong enough to run on gas containing 15% Ethanol, say it isn't so" - Homer 2016

Either way the rest of us are fcked.
The rich oil the wheels of the economy in a capitalistic system - more jobs, more consumers, more taxes, more revenues, more people with money, more freedoms, more opportunities.

What happens when we're all poor and government dependent with no incentive to work?

Just look back at history, Homer. The answer is there.

Or just be grateful for what you have and stop envying those who work harder and earn more than you do.

What we liberals want is a more equal distribution of this country's wealth rather than 10% owning approximately 80% of it.
Financial based products, like the artificially inflated stock market?

The rich are getting richer in the stock market on our dime, yet you guys praise that. Sheep.

"California State Sen. Ron Calderon took tens of thousands of dollars from undercover FBI agents to make changes to the state’s $100 million Film and TV TAX CREDIT PROGRAM, according to Al Jazeera America. Citing a sealed FBI affidavit, the channel aired a report Wednesday providing details into the well-known investigation of the influential state politician."

Rich people making a mess that will be fixed by rich people...

Translation:
These rich people are Liberals, making them good rich people, as compared to Conservative Rich people who are asSholes.

"WASHINGTON — A tech firm linked to a campaign-donor crony of President Obama not only got the job to help build the federal health-insurance Web site — but also is getting paid to fix it.

Anthony Welters, a top campaign bundler for Obama and frequent White House guest, is the executive vice president of UnitedHealth Group, which owns the software company now at the center of the ObamaCare Web-site fiasco.

UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Quality Software Services Inc.(QSSI), which built the data hub for the ObamaCare system, has been named the new general contractor in charge of repairing the glitch"

Most people don't get diagnosed with chronic diseases until after age 50.

For example, I used to brag about being healthy as a horse until I turned 49. Little did I know.

There are the lucky few who squeak by and never have a chronic medical problem.

Don't know how old you are but, hopefully, you're one of the lucky few. Do you know your family medical history? It's usually a good indicator if you're not sure.
