No dear.

They may be "fictional"- meaning they are drawn from what happened in real life- but not fiction.

I know: you have the same problem with the Holocaust.

What a shame it is you are still allowed to breath.

You should be beaten to within a breath of losing your life and chained up until you stop.

Give you some perspective.

Schindler's List is also fiction.

The "costs" of this web site you and every other Obama hater and hater of any progressive idea is a complete fallacy. Amount allocated to build this site was 90 million / actual costs to date - 70 million dollars;
""As for cash, it appears that HHS spent over $600 million for the online system -- more than it took to get Facebook started," wrote John Sununu in a Boston Globe column, while the Washington Times reported, "The administration hasn't said how much these efforts will cost; estimates indicate the website already has cost taxpayers more than $600 million."
Even ABC News pushed the report, noting "The administration has not provided a final cost of the website, although some estimates place it between $500 million to $600 million."
But the accounting employed by Digital Trends raised some eyebrows even within the conservative media. National Review Online contributor Greg Pollowitz tweeted that the CGI contracts Digital Trends pointed to included work that the firm had done for the U.S. government years before health care reform was actually passed into law.
Glenn Beck's site, The Blaze, also debunked the number. "While the federal website to signup for Obamacare was riddled with errors and had a rocky rollout, it didn't cost $634 million to build," wrote Liz Klimas. Citing an official inside GCI, The Blaze reported the $634 figure "includes all of the company's contracts for a Health and Human Services Department program over the last seven years."
Independently, the Sunlight Foundation estimated it cost $70 million to build the much-maligned website, not $634 million.(Officially, CGI was awarded a $93 million contract for the healthcare.gov job.)"

You people need to debunk your own blatantly false sources, which only attempt to scare people into thinking this egregious amount was spent, when the contract signed by CGI was for 93 million dollars.
"The new healthcare exchange site has been the topic of several news stories these past few weeks. Many of them are quoting vastly different numbers for how much it cost to build. You'd think that sites like USASpending.gov or the Federal IT Dashboard1 would be able to give us some idea. But in reality, that's just not how federal spending is reported.
healthcare_ladyMuch of government spending is bundled into huge contracts called IDIQs (indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity) that are meant to span many years and may go to multiple recipients. They're a lot like regular contracts except they can have very vague requirements and once the IDIQ itself has been competed, the government no longer has any requirement to compete any contract within that IDIQ. CGI Federal has one of these IDIQ contracts with the Department of Health and Human services. It was signed in 2007, long before the Affordable Care Act became law, and lasts until 2017. Within each IDIQ, the government creates purchase or task orders for specific services, which you can find in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS). You can see a list of all the task orders for the CGI Federal IDIQ here.

Good post---full of information and food for thought.

I don't hate Obama, anymore that I hate Bush or Clinton. They are all NWO Globalist Traitors, whose Presidencies have been sanctioned by the Internation Banksters.

The various estimates for the cost of the website exist mainly because the Obama Administration is so secretive. That is why I think of him as Obama the Opaque,

oh yes, this ficticious cabal that you keep referring to but never can come up with any supporting evidence for...

there is more factual support for bigfoot than the re is for you conspiracy. but then most of the sites you look at also have bigfoot and UFO connections on them, don't they?

Sorry, no matter what you think, there were people who taught their slaves to read, and write, and at a certain age they were set free some left, and some stayed. Their are diaries left behind. Of course, there were atrocities. There are atrocities today in the Black community. Are you concerned about those people? No, you are not.

Actually, slaves were often whipped if they were caught reading... and funny how people - these "loving" Christians- just didn't let their slaves go.

It's idiots like you who watched Hogan's Heroes and thought that being a prisoner of war was a barrel of fun.

Slaveowners held onto their slaves - they died and left them as property rather than release them.

Thomas Jefferson inherited slaves under the condition he would help them make the transition from slavery to freedom and he sold them deeper into the south instead.

I guess he was teaching them the life is hard lesson.

I do not believe Jefferson sold slaves he was entrusted with. He more then the others treated his slaves with respect. You just pick someone you hate, and make up a story about him.

Protestant Christians were at the forefront of the Abolitionist Movement in the US. In fact, it was Christians from England that ended Slavery in Kenya; probable costing the LUO Tribe alot of money.

And it wasn't just Obama's ancestors that made money in the slave trade, but that nut Al Gore's family too. B. Clinton's family was not involved---too poor.

For the record, the Islamic Slave Trade was far worse in duration, brutality, and scope that the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

" A letter has recently come to light describing how Monticello’s young black boys,“the small ones,” age 10, 11 or 12, were whipped to get them to work in Jefferson’s nail factory, whose profits paid the mansion’s grocery bills.

Isn't that nice?

SOME Protestants were abolitionists.

Of course, many more Christians were slave owners than abolitionists.
