Better get going now because once The Affordable Care Act
is running, people are going to love it (just as they love
Social Security and old tea party love their Medicare) and
it will be hard to do anything about.

You must be one sickly needing government care mutha. We are going to find out there are limits to what we can do for people. right or wrong. So the survival of the fittest will go to just plain survival in a war setting.

You got laid off because your job required higher brain function, and you were disqualified.

How do you filibuster something which is already law? And for an extra dollar, who was buried in Grant's Tomb?
Look out. The questions get tougher from here.

LEFT TURN?
Tea Party Group Boycotts Fox for Being too Liberal
They claim the network has 'turned left'

2 hrs ago by Mary Noble

Senior Editor

A group of tea party activists are boycotting Fox News because the network "keeps turning to the left."

The boycotters want Fox to air "at least one segment on Benghazi every night on two of its prime-time shows" and devote resources to investigating Obama's birth certificate, according to the Daily Beast. They hope that all this will lead to Obama's impeachment. Their aim is "to restore the same scrutiny to the Office of the President by the media that was enjoyed by presidents past like Richard Nixon, and presumably with the same results," according to the boycott's website.

"Particularly after the election, Fox keeps turning to the left," Stan Hjerlied, 75, of Fort Collins told the Daily Beast. "We need Fox to turn right. We think this is a coverup and Fox is aiding and abetting it. This is the way Hitler started taking over Germany, by managing and manipulating the news media."

"The more I research into Fox - I saw that they donate more to Democratic candidates than conservative or Republican candidates - I was like holy cow!" said Donnie Farner, another boycotter.

The three-day boycott lasted Thursday morning through Sunday morning.

Still, I'm glad you lay the sequester at the door of the Republicans. And they will pay at the voting booth.

You see how the veterans are treated by hte VA. It took a judge to make them stop their bureaucracy in filing claims. If you think this is BAd, just wait until Obummer Kare comes into full force. My family suffered under government heath care for 22 years. The first thing I did the day I retired was to look fora job with good heath care benefits and I foun d it. Now the stupid democrats have passed this obamination of a healthcare bill and now I dont know where it is going nor do many others. I guess at the end of the year only the Low Information Voters will have health care. Government health care sucks.
