Rap is a money making venture and not an art form.

I will be visiting Calif. from time to time as I have my daughter and grand children there. I hope all is well with you. After i'm on here for a week it becomes clear that the Obama haters are total fanatics and kinda scary.
These right wing cowards are harmless. Weak minds are scared to death of everything, that's how their wealthy handlers use fear to motivate them. They sleep with their AK47 under their pillows. They'd never shoot it, they're just chest beaters. The only thing they'd use their rifle for is to tie a white flag to it.

Numbers in Connecticut...

Confusion reigns...

"Of the 3,847 individuals who signed up for coverage, 1,857 qualified for Medicaid, 1,897 signed up for plans with one of the three private insurance carriers, and 93 qualified for the Children’s Health Insurance Plan. Of the individuals who signed up with private carriers, 772 won’t receive a subsidy and 1,125 will receive a federal subsidy to lower their monthly premium."

Could be the byproduct of the original R&B but, there is nothing similar to Rap. Well maybe if you combined modern R&B with poetry. I also listen to a variety of music for inspiration. I never find problems with other genres lyrics, it's the fact that some music is filled with instruments that clashes, therefore makes it hard to hear the lyrics. Metal, Heavy Metal, some Rock & Roll, too loud!

It carried out eight separate prison attacks over the same period, ending with the complex, military-style assaults on two Baghdad-area prisons on July 21 that freed more than 500 inmates, many of them al Qaeda members.
"It's safe to assume a good percentage of them ... would flow back into the ranks," boosting the group's manpower, said Floyd, the military analyst.
American troops and Iraqi forces, including Sunni militiamen opposed to the group's extremist ideology, beat back al Qaeda after the U.S. launched its surge strategy in 2007. That policy shift deployed additional American troops to Iraq and shifted the focus of the war effort toward enhancing security for Iraqis and winning their trust.
By 2009, al Qaeda and other Sunni extremist groups were "reduced to a few small cells struggling to survive and unable to mount more than token attacks," Kenneth Pollack, a Clinton administration official who is now a Middle East analyst at the Brookings Institution, noted in a report earlier this year.
Now there are fears that all the hard work is coming undone.
Iraqis, both Sunni and Shiite, say they are losing faith in the government's ability to keep the country safe.
"Al Qaeda can blow up whatever number of car bombs they want whenever they choose," said Ali Nasser, a Shiite government employee from Baghdad. "It seems like al Qaeda is running the country, not the government in Baghdad."
Many Sunnis, meanwhile, are unwilling to trust a government they feel has sidelined and neglected their sect.
Iraqi officials say that lack of trust has hampered intelligence-gathering efforts, with fewer Sunnis willing to pass along tips about suspected terrorist activities in their midst.
"During the surge, we helped build up the immune system of Iraq to deter these attacks. Now that immune system has been taken away," said Emma Sky, a key civilian policy adviser for U.S. Army Gen. Ray Odierno when he was the top American military commander in Iraq.
"Before you had the U.S. there to protect the political space and help move the country forward," she added. "How much longer can this go on before something breaks?"

Do you know how many IRS government employees are going to be hired to implement this law? If not, you should look it up.
The IRS is not "implementing" the law. They will merely be verifying informing people of the new law.

IF you know the number of IRS agents that will hired, let's see your link. I'm guessing it is from a conservative website.

Hint: "The claim of 16,500 new agents stems from a partisan analysis based on guesswork and false assumptions, and compounded by outright misrepresentation."

Ron Paul: "16,500 ARMED bureaucrats coming to make this program work."

"IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified before a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee March 25 that the IRS won’t be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. He said insurance companies will issue forms certifying that individuals have coverage that meets the federal mandate, similar to a form that lenders use to verify the amount of interest someone has paid on their home mortgage. "We expect to get a simple form, that we won’t look behind, that says this person has acceptable health coverage," Shulman said. "So there’s not going to be any discussions about health coverage with an IRS employee."

this is what it comes down to...

in the real world, if a site has as many "glitches" as the obamacare sites, they lose customers, money and potentially go out of business.

in the government world, if a site has as many "glitches" as the obamacare sites and they lose customers, just tax them an additional $95.

It's rare that I disagree with you Realtime but, you're totally wrong on this one. I'll do you a favor. Download Jay-z; Heaven, Beachchair, Oceans &, Holy Grail. Or just listen to Nas albums; It was written &, I AM. 2PAC, any album. There's different forms of Rap, I happento like most of them but, my favorite is Hardcore or, Gangsta Rap. You may not think so but, some of the music is deep &, you'll never find a better art form Anyone can put thoughts into form &, keep them between the beats. Now try doing that using rhyming words &, keeping the topic. Takes God given skill!
