Barack Obama, our next President

Other studies disagree with you.
Many of us were disciplined with a ruler, switch or flyswatter and knew its distinction from abuse.
Differing on how best to discipline children is one thing. Ignoring discipline altogether is another.
That is what's happening today.
Whether the consequences for bad behavior is a spanking or another effective method, children are fine if they understand they are loved - and each child is different.
There'd have to be proof the child who killed his teacher was raised in an abusive - or a permissive - home.
Both are fringe ends of the discipline spectrum.
The happy medium is somewhere in the middle.
What other studies Carol? How about coming up with some? Or even one? There aren't any that show any positive effects of corporal punishment.
Physical punishment models aggression for children. According to Lynn Namka, EdD, physical punishment engenders more aggression in the child, even if it initially appears to stop the behavior. Children cannot always understand the difference between unacceptable physical aggression for which they get punished, such as hitting and shoving, and the physical aggression they receive as punishment. Corporal punishment can lead to increased aggression for kids in school, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Physical punishment has an impact on cognitive development. A 1998 study by Murray A. Straus and Mallie J. Paschall, titled &quot;Corporal Punishment by Mothers and Child's Cognitive Development,&quot; revealed that children who were spanked were less able to keep up with the cognitive development level expected for their age. It can even lower their IQ, notes Psychology Today. Spanking can reduce a child's brain's grey matter, which is a crucial since it influences learning abilities.
Adolescents who receive physical punishment are three times more likely to grow up to abuse their own children, according to . The study by Straus found that 7 percent of never-spanked adolescents grow up to abuse their children, compared to 24 percent of those who were spanked. Spanking teaches children that it's okay to hurt people and this can lead them to believe you solve problems by hitting. These children may continue this way of thinking into adulthood, causing them to hit their spouse or children. It should be noted, however, that the vast majority of people, whether or not they received physical punishment, are unlikely to abuse their children.

Introducing a few hair-splitting exceptions to the argument which do not represent the norm does not refute me.

Surely you must have something in that big bag of tricks besides peanuts.

<quoted text>O'bamaliarcare is the greatest intrusion into the private lives of Americans in our history. And you might recall Thomas Jefferson wrote a little document detailing the intrusive nature of government, which established the United States of America.
The only people being assaulted are the Americans that believe the government owes them their life style. Democrats hate personal responsibility, get these losers off their dead asses.
What a crock.

The majority of Americans will continue to get insurance the way they always ave.

Those who buy as individuals will save money in the exchanges.

More people were intruded upon why the economic mess left by your buddy George W Bush.

As you cry about millions losing insurance (to get new policies), million lost their jobs (no new jobs available), lost their life's savings, lost their homes.

You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.

Funny, the article from which Flacktard's claim is taken actually said "could lose" not "will lose" ( This is what happens when things get filtered through Fox & the right whiner web sites).
Here is an opposing view.
http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/11/01/28...
Ignored is the grandfather clause. "Under the “grandfather clause,” a plan issued before the ACA was signed in 2010 could remain in place as long as employers or insurance companies didn’t drastically change its terms in a way that would harm the policy holder, like increasing out-of-pocket costs or dropping benefits. However, if a plan did change, it would lose its “grandfather status.” Then, any new plan issued in its place would be subject to Obamacare’s various requirements."
Most employer plans are designed for a population of employees that cross the spectrum. Most already include the majority of requirements & my need to make small changes. Just like policies have been doing for the past decade or so.
Reason number etc., of why it belongs in givverment offices ONLY-NOT on public-oh-so-hackable webs.

They didn't need to REDO the whole damn American economy, they just merely needed to ADD one SMALL sector (you have heard about that one "small sector of five percent or so") to provide affordable access for the UNinsured.

NOT write a communistic manifesto dagger to destroy the whole free market system.

<quoted text>Even the largest estimate of $24 billion comes to only 0.0015 of the total economy, or 0.15% of the $16 trillion GDP. And another thing — why do liberals always assume government spending equals growth? I mean, why not spend a bazillion dollars then?
No one cares about the shut down anymore. Oh wait they are now understanding why it happened... mm mmm mmm. We have moved on to the real pain. Pain-in-everyone's ass called O'bamaliarcare.
Issa help hearing in the spending of couple hundred million on a website. What was that as a percentage?

Government spending on goods creates jobs & government employees spend their money in the economy. Government spending on parks fuel private business that survive on park visitors.

YOPUR PARTY cut out 24 billion for what? Something they knew would fail? When is Issa hearing going to start?

Oh I get it. Its OK for you dumbasses to hurt the US economy but OMG OMG OMG a website isn't working.

You wish no one cares about the shutdown anymore. The economy has taken a hit. Those affected will remember who did it - Ted "F*ckhead" Cruz & you tea party morons.

You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.
To accomodate the surge in welfare insurance, the individual policy premiums either have to increase, or the government has to subsidize the insurance companies participating in the exchanges, which allows the government to take over those insurance companies.
Either way, the people who have been paying for their health insurance will have to pay more, and the people getting their health care for free will receive more free health care paid for by everyone else.
Everyone who pays for their health care will have to pay more, and get less so those who never pay for their health care can get more free health care.
ObamaKare is pur Marxist, and will have the same effect on the economy that every other Marxist program had on any economy in the history of civilization.

Which brings us back to a question you have never been able to answer:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

You hero Paul Ryan said they existed.
Look, I know this has to e embarrassing for you. After all your tough talk about "moochers" only for it to get out that you are a moocher.
You seem to still be unable to find any evidence subsidies to oil companies exist.
You never could identify any subsidy to any oil company. The only thing you could identify was some people using the words "oil subsidy".
If you had to produce evidence of farm subsidies, it would be easy to reference legislation authorizing that.
For some reason, you can't find a single piece of legislation that authorizes a subsidy paid to oil companies.
Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows is on. Show me the ghost.
Show me the subsidy to oil companies.
... here's a hint. Don't waste your time looking. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to oil companies in the United States. Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend.
... or, show us the legislation that authorizes it. Your Democrat frauds in Congress talk about it so much, I'm sure it will be a piece of cake for you to find which law they're always talking about when they rant about these mythical subsidies to oil companies.
