Since it's obvious that you have no life and aren't smart enought to be offended I guess that makes you the winner. Well at least in that primate world that you and baggers reside in. You still hanging with your boy Bundy?

Ghost,

Everyone makes fun of Leo's grammar routine. Then she gets frustrated and screws up her response post. It is like clock-work.

Nay, I am not going to get offended by any thing someone here says. I do have a life that doesn't depend on internet strangers for approval.

I like the gratuitous straw man and slam added at the end. So creative.

Have a nice day!

Nevada Democrats released a tongue-in-cheek memo Friday urging the Republican National Committee to hold its 2016 convention in Las Vegas because it would draw attention to GOP figures who praised local rancher Cliven Bundy before he made racist, pro-slavery remarks.

"Sure, after embracing Bundy for weeks -- even calling him a 'patriot,' in [Sen. Dean] Heller’s case -- most Nevada Republicans tried to distance themselves from Bundy after his latest comments were exposed," read the memo, addressed to Chairman Reince Priebus. "[W]e are so excited about you helping Nevada Democrats put the national spotlight on Nevada Republicans like Bundy, Heller ... among others, with a RNC convention. They are ready for their close-up, Mr. Priebus. And so are we."

Bundy was essentially saying the black community has traded the traditional family unit, even when it was tested under terrible circumstances, for a violent, disjointed, welfare environment - with devastating results. Bundy is right. His choice of words may have been a little clumsy, but he was being sincere about it. Which is more than you race baiters will ever be.

one little problem....

African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.

White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

one of these days i might come to an understanding as to why you nutjobs ignore poor white people who are on welfare. but i'm sure you'll assure me that it has nothing to do with racism.

GOP Climate Change Skeptic Becomes A True Believer After Sandy

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) reveals his change of heart in an interview with MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes airing Sunday on the Showtime documentary series "Years Of Living Dangerously," the transcript of which was provided in advance to TPM.

"[T]he mass majority of respected scientists say that it’s conclusive, the evidence is clear. So I don't think the jury is out," Grimm says.

State Democrat: Vermont already struggling with financing its single-payer system
POSTED AT 1:21 PM ON MARCH 18, 2014 BY ERIKA JOHNSEN
Blue-dominated Vermont already had a healthcare system that ran heavy with government involvement prior to ObamaCare, but the small state of about 625,000 residents dove headfirst into the task of creating their own ObamaCare exchange with eventual plans to evolve the entire program into a full-on single-payer system through the next few years. So far, even just their ObamaCare exchange has been struggling to get off of the ground (and they happen to be spending more federal money on uninsured residents than other states with more of them,$167 million!), and their single-payer ambitions are evidently on some very rocky financial ground. Via Watchdog.org :
Now, even Democrats say that plan, called Green Mountain Care, isn’t ready for its proposed 2017 rollout, and Rep. Jim Condon told Vermont Watchdog it’s time for Gov. Peter Shumlin to shelve the ambitious plan immediately.
“The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that’s very disappointing. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan,” Condon told Vermont Watchdog.
As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state’s tax collections from all sources today.
Condon, a Democrat from Colchester, said he thinks a single-payer system in Vermont would “cost more” than a couple of previous estimates. Those estimates pegged the cost for single-payer at anywhere from $1.6 billion to $2.2 billion annually.
“It’s a government program [so] I think it’s going to cost more than that. Given that, I think it would be in the best interest of Vermonters to redirect our energies away from single-payer health care to trying to improve the system we’re in now,” Condon added.
Part of the original state legislation included a condition that the single-payer system not have any negative implications for Vermont’s economy — but as the aforementioned Democratic lawmaker mentions, raising taxes to a pretty huge and perhaps even doubled degree seems like one of their only options for adequately financing the project. This definitely looks like yet another case of blue-state ambitions with eyes bigger than their collective stomach, no?
"flack"
Another example of wasted Federal dollars is the state of Oregon. They are giving up on their health care exchange.The received 305 million in grants and pissed away 248 million of the grant. The states information officer, Pettit, declares Oregon will not be required to repay the Feds because the money was a grant. Over 70% of the Oregonians who signed up under Oregon's plan signed up for Cover Oregon, the states version of Medicaid.
Between the two states, Vermont and Oregon nearly 1/2 billion in Federal tax payers money was wasted.
Peace
