Annie Rand the same, one and only nut case
Her books provided wide-ranging parables of "parasites," "looters" and "moochers" using the levers of government to steal the fruits of her heroes' labor. In the real world, however, Rand herself received Social Security payments and Medicare benefits under the name of Ann O'Connor .
ummm..no not the same. her nom de plume was ayn rand.

A senior Israeli official says the Israeli government has accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal to end a monthlong war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
The official says a preliminary 72-hour truce will begin at 0500 GMT on Tuesday morning. An Israeli delegation will head to Egypt for talks meant to work out a long-term truce in the next three days

It is interesting that they will agree to a cease fire as long as Kerry and Obama are not involved. It tells us a lot about Kerry and Obama and how they are thought of in the middle east..

How many unwanted children have you adopted? I would suggest you should watch the autopsy of an unwanted baby who has been tortured and beaten. My hope is "you and your sactimonious ignorance will go right out the window." Better to die as an unthinking, unfeeling polywog than as a an abused, starved child.
You're confused by the progressive liberal mentality. Two wrongs don't make a right. Sucking a human life into a vacuum doesn't excuse abusing an unwanted child.

Try to stay focused. Snap out of it.

First you wish to kill Obamacare?
You want to do away with Medicare as well?
Answer that question?
Obamacare IS Medicare. Except millions more will be covered. You must think there's a money tree growing in the Rose Garden too.

The middle class are burdened enough already. Those who don't qualify for the free subsidies will be paying out the wazoo in premiums and deductibles.

So you want to do away with the middle class who can't afford health care?

Snap out of it. Please.

Obama caused the Arab Spring and the rotten economy. Obama ignored the real problems, like unemployment and the poor, for years while he illegally forced ObamaKare on the public. Obama pretends like he finished the war on terrorism, while he just made the problem worse.

Don't be silly. It's mostly my money the government took out of my checks. And I want it back.

Hope you have a Plan B if you're younger than 55. The government is still taking your money to pay for my generations' retirement. Sucks to be you.

But the Democrats thought this was a great idea at one time. Just like Obamacare. Get ready. The worst is yet to come and much sooner than Social Security being unsustainable.

It's not too late to figure out why Republicans tried to fight Social Security and Obamacare.

If not, stop complaining. Your party is screwing you over. Not mine.

You are deflecting. Your claim was that if Obama had not "wasted time" on the Affordable Care Act, he could have spent more time dealing with other important issue. Fact is, Obama only spent about one year getting the Affordable Care Act passed while it is the Republicans in Congress that have been wasting time fighting it. You can't sweep that FACT under the rug.
He wasted about 15 months passing the POS legislation. Health care insurance in the USA needed about 5 items either changed or added, but the imbecile Odonothingt had to destroy everything to get HIS vision of healthcare passed, not our vision. People have died because they signed up, paid premiums and were denied treatment because they didn't have coverage. Your useless leftist academics estimated 57 Million Yankee Dollars to build the system and now the cost is at 850 Million and still not working. Obama is an egotistical fool who lies constantly, even when he doesn't have to and imbeciles like you think he is smart.

Nothing will convince brainwashed fliberal dupes and saps, Oblamer butt smoochers.
We'll see how they feel when a republican takes office in 2016.
For 8 years of GWB is was a non stop barrage of whining, sniveling, complaining and moaning that he was breaking the laws set forth, hypocritical douches, they should all have a rotten turnip shoved in their mouths to shut them up.
Wouldn't it be sweet poetic justice if Republicans won back the Senate and the presidency and decided to go ahead and enforce Obamacare with conservative-appointed IRS administrators overseeing it? And over 300 liberal groups were denied tax exemptions by the new IRS?

Maybe the liberals would be singing a different song. Our song.

Can already imagine it. Music to my ears.

What you neglect to understand - or fail to grasp - or can't get your head around - is the number of people who are abusing and manipulating a broken system.
And taking advantage of Obama's naivety.
Nancy Pelosi wants you to believe conservatives don't care about children. Don't be another liberal stooge.
No one is going to take away food stamps for those its meant to help. Fixing a broken system is just common sense. Pelosi has none. Do you??
I know a couple who owned their own business, passed it on to their kids, are living off quite well off of capitol gains, own a huge house in Miami on the Miami River, and built a place in North Carolina, yet have taken Obamacare and both get subsidies. They owe nothing on their houses and my guess is their net worth is around 11-Million including the two homes which price out around 3-Million total.

You think because you go to that storefront evangelical church of yours that you are the pinnacle of morality. HA! You're so fos that I can smell it from here.
We're talking about laws. Not your mumbo jumbo bullshyt religion.
No judgment when it comes to right or wrong? Oh really now.
Could you turn on the switch to an industrial vacuum and suck out a human life with a beating heart, functioning organs and a central nervous system? And still sleep at night?

If your answer is yes, then you have no room to lecture someone else about morality and sit in judgment.

If no, then, by all means, let's keep the discussion going.

No, this was done before where healthy adults were given work requirements. Progressives were positive this would cause riots--their excuse for keeping it--and used "people will starve." Neither happened.

You're rather a self-centered fool who is large on bluster and blather and little on substance, in other words you're a gas bag who wants others to think you know something, but you know very little and spew hate and propaganda. No one has much use for balls of shyt like you, not even other socialists. Now shut up boy and go back to you tinker toys and playing with your undersized peepee.

Any major piece of legislation dreamed up by an inexperienced junior senator and former community organizer and delegated to two people who don't have both oars in the water, Pelosi and Reid, to put together using bribery and backroom deals to get it passed on a strictly partisan vote before anyone has read it is going to backfire big time.

It's just simple logic. No major reform or piece of legislation could ever work that way. It was just meant to be Obama's legacy. And it will be. But not the way he imagined.

Not at all
Obamacare
But now, months removed from the political storm that resulted from the botched rollout of the law and as more Americans begin receiving healthcare under the program, many Republicans have a more nuanced view of its importance.
House Republicans are broadening their once-singular focus on the healthcare law and headed into an extended summer break without delivering on their promise to advance an alternative.
For much of the summer, in fact, the issue has receded as both a topic of daily assaults in Congress and on the campaign trail. The once-common House votes to repeal Obamacare have been replaced by a probe into improper Internal Revenue Service targeting, hearings into treatment delays for veterans and a Republican push to sue or even impeach President Obama on allegations of overstepping his constitutional bounds.
Perhaps the most obvious sign of the shift has been what is seen, or not, in television advertising in key states. The percentage of broadcast television ads focused on Obamacare dipped in the spring, according to a study conducted by Kantar Media/CMAG, a nonpartisan media-tracking firm, for the Cook Political Report. The study found, however, that the percentage of Obamacare ads rose again in July.
The s--t hasn't even hit the fan yet...so to speak.

Potentially millions of people will stop receiving insurance through their employers by the end of 2014.

Some cancellation notices have already gone out, but insurers say the bulk of the letters will be sent in October shortly before the next open-enrollment period begins.

Better put on a poncho before October.

Just to be clear about my previous post. Sucking a human life into a vacuum is wrong. Abusing an unwanted child is also wrong.

Pointing to the latter as a way to justify the former doesn't make the former any more right.

In other words, two wrongs still don't make a right.

The median income has dropped by 7%. Gas prices are going up and food prices are at an all time high.

Many in the middle class have already reached the poverty level - many in the suburbs that once used to be a status of income.

There were more important issues to deal with in 2009 and 2010. The damage got worse in 2011 and 2012 because of all the unknowns surrounding Obamacare and the time spent on that in 2009 and 2010.

Big government taking over one-sixth of the economy and controlling our health care could have waited. But, historically, that's the first step for the elite few to have complete control.
