When you need Medicaid for your medical bills remember to ask your libertarian buddies for assistance.
Medical care only gets more expansive once you have retired.
This is only your first year of retirement.
The ACA may end up assisting you and your hubby.
Ironic
Peace
If the ACA ends up assisting me, it will be at your expense. Unless you're older than 39 or your income isn't high enough to fork over a high premium up front.

Still trying to figure out who's paying for all of this wonderful free health care. Any idea?

<quoted text> Affirmative Action laws are firmly based on the Reconstruction Amendments ;most importantly for its far reaching effects was the 14th Amendment : " Key Clauses of the 14th Amendment
Four principles were asserted in the text of the 14th amendment. They were:
State and federal citizenship for all persons regardless of race both born or naturalized in the United States was reaffirmed.
No state would be allowed to abridge the "privileges and immunities" of citizens.
No person was allowed to be deprived of life, liberty,or property without "due process of law."
No person could be denied "equal protection of the laws." --> So; if you really want to argue against Affirmative Action than the United States Constitution is squarely "in your face" !:-D
"affirmative action" denies equal rights to white folks.... not the intent of the 14th amendment....

You are completely ignoring the focus of our discussion which was your constant argument that Bundy's cattle were being removed to make room for the Chinese solar facility. That was a lie...which, I think you now realize so you have changed your focus to solar power facilities in general. As usual, you are running from your original argument by changing the subject from Reid and the Chinese solar facility to the Dry Lake SEZ. Fine with me.
My argument from the very beginning was that the Gold Butte area was set aside as a conservation area to protect the tortoise and other desert creatures from the expansion and development of the surrounding area which, even twenty years ago, was foreseen as inevitable. Bundy's cattle represent a threat to their conservation and must be removed.
leftwingers like you represent a threat to economic growth and must be removed.....

When he wasn't seeking out Marxist professors and black activists to fit in.

From pages 100-101 in Barack Hussein Obama's book, "Dreams from my Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance."

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout,I chose my friends carefully.The more politically active black students.The foreign students.The Chicanos.The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets.At night,in the dorms,we discussed neocolonialism,Franz Fanon,Eurocentrism,and patriarchy.When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake,we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints.We weren't indifferent or careless or insecure.We were alienated."

Wasn't anyone paying attention in 2008? This president still doesn't fit in and is still alienated and is still disconnected from the real world - and has no inkling as to what makes this country what it is or what it stands for.

So I worry more about my fellow Americans who elected him the first time - much less another four years.

<quoted text> You just proved my point; thanks little one.
We know you proved my point little one that you are an advocate for Racism & Black Supremacy and feel Blacks should have special rights over whites.

Black supremacy is the belief of, and/or promotion of the belief, that black people are superior to people of other racial backgrounds and that therefore blacks should politically dominate non-blacks.

If my memory serves me right, this latest salvo in the black racism wars started here in Michigan when a group of white women applied for entrance to U of M Law School. They all scored high on the entrance exam but were refused entrance because their skin was, literally, the wrong color. Blacks with low test scores were allowed in over the whites. That's when the white women filed suit.

As bizarre as it might sound to many, the Michigan State Supreme Court ruled that racial discrimination against whites was legally OK in academia. Period. End of story.

That began a state wide move to change the State Constitution prohibiting racial discrimination in school entrances. The voters easily approved the change.

And now the SCOTUS agrees that voters have that right to ban racial discrimination in their State's Constitution. Fck the State Supreme Court.

OK. I took three hours off and it's time to play catch-up.
As usual, you have a reading comprehension problem. I did not say the Tea Party "refused" to pay taxes. I said groups like the Waco Texas Tea Party were trying to "avoid" paying taxes. IMO, the IRS had every justifiable right to investigate Waco Texas Tea Party's application as a 501(c)4 organization. The main difference between a 501(c)3 group and a 501(c)4 group is that, in the later, donors cannot deduct their contributions from their taxable income.
Avoid, ESCAPE, refuse are all variations of the same theme. The word used was escape.

The Tea Party campaigns for lower taxes.

There is nothing illegal about someone wanting to lower taxes and this should NOT qualify them for special consideration.

What I see is bloated cows which happens upon death. Where do you get the "bones" from.

How big do you think cows are?

There is no "law" that contains a list of what these organizations must provide. However, it is said that whether an organization is "primarily" engaged in promoting social welfare is a "facts and circumstances" determination.
According to the IRS code, "relevant factors include the amount of funds received from and devoted to particular activities; other resources used in conducting such activities, such as buildings and equipment; the time devoted to activities (by volunteers as well as employees); the manner in which the organization's activities are conducted; and the purposes furthered by various activities." (Rev. Rul. 74-361, 1974-2 C.B. 159). So, it makes sense that the IRS has the right and obligation to ask for anything that will provide them with a clear picture of the workings of the organization.
I don't understand why anyone would question flagging the applications of groups like the Waco Tea Party for rigorous review by specialist. We are talking about organizations who wish to escape taxation. Of the 298 groups to which the IRS gave extra scrutiny seventy-two had "tea party" in their title, 13 had "patriots," and 11 had "9/12"... for the 9/12 movement started by Glenn Beck. What wouldn't have made sense is if these organizations had escaped being flagged for special review.
Personally, I am appalled that groups like the Waco (Texas) Tea Party was approved as a IRC 501(c)(4). IMO, it is nonsensical.
so, extra scrutiny should also be given to organizations that have "progress" or "action" or "change" in their titles, or are funded by George Soros......

Maybe I never read Patrick's post before, but some of his commentary is a little jumbled.
