Again, illegal aliens do not have to pay for Obamacare. They also will not pay a fine.
So, what's your point? We should reject the ACA because it doesn't punish illegal immigrants? I don't get your point at all, because we pass all kinds of legislation that doesn't punish illegal immigrants, and we also don't seem to be serious at all about punishing those who hire them, and THAT part of the formula should have been what captures your attention.

You're wasting your energy, and all that results is resentment of the people you encounter in life. If they weren't welcomed by BUSINESS, you wouldn't have these issues that disturb you. They wouldn't keep arriving illegally or overstaying visas IF GOVERNMENT didn't fail to uphold laws on the books and BUSINESS didn't keep getting away with it, and life wasn't better here than wherever it was they left behind.

Science, faith, and life's origin
http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/evolution/...
One of the many fascinating things about evolution is that it generates disputes that can help us all better understand what science is and how it differs from religion or other areas of human endeavor.

Just such an enlightening dispute cropped up recently between two readers who were kind enough to let me share some of their correspondence. It all started when Elisa Winterstein wrote a letter to The Inquirer, stating that scientists rely on faith just as religious people do by accepting the idea of abiogenesis - the notion that life arose from non-living matter.

Her contention is mirrored in dozens of other reader comments I've seen, stating that science, like religion, requires faith.

Her letter goes on to say that, while scientists are considering various scenarios for the origin of life, none is currently backed by any evidence, and therefore, "to believe in abiogenesis does indeed require faith."

The point is, the illegal aliens will still get medical care without having to pay for it, and so will their anchor rats. It's an unfair advantage for illegal aliens. They are scamming the system, because the government will not do their job, and Obamacare gives them another advantage that lots of Americans will not get.

That support comes from the very same folks who support a grown a**ed past middle-aged "man" who graphically describes molesting a small boy in vivid and disgusting detail. Obviously, these are birds of a feather flocking together whose perversions are all that get them out of bed in the morning.

Don't ever think anybody reading here thinks anything but that they are pure trash low lifes.

We all have mothers, and some of us are mothers. There's no more important role we could be blessed to have. All we need is a child of ours to say, "I love you Mama/Mom." I imagine that those who post that kind of garbage have never heard those words or experienced that bond of love, Rose. Pity them.

Secret code for identifying differences in the parties you attend.
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify what contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to income not health.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... .
The Four Eras of the American Right
http://consortiumnews.com/2013/09/28/the-four...
As the world ponders why the American Right – through its Tea Party power in Congress – is threatening to shut down the federal government and precipitate a global economic crisis by defaulting on U.S. debt, the answer goes to the self-image of these rightists who insist they are the true defenders of the Founding Principles.

In otherwords observable evidence lead to to the hypothysis of Higgs not higs lead to research to find it as is with the search for god... to date there has never been any observation that justifies a search for god outside of just pure faith and faith is not science
I disagree. I'll just post about one, but there are more to read about at the link:

http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/scie...

Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)

Copernicus was the Polish astronomer who put forward the first mathematically based system of planets going around the sun. He attended various European universities, and became a Canon in the Catholic church in 1497. His new system was actually first presented in the Vatican gardens in 1533 before Pope Clement VII who approved, and urged Copernicus to publish it around this time. Copernicus was never under any threat of religious persecution - and was urged to publish both by Catholic Bishop Guise, Cardinal Schonberg, and the Protestant Professor George Rheticus. Copernicus referred sometimes to God in his works, and did not see his system as in conflict with the Bible.

Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1627)
Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
Rene Descartes (1596-1650)
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
Robert Boyle (1791-1867)
Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
Gregor Mendel (1822-1884)
William Thomson Kelvin (1824-1907)- foundation of modern physics
Max Planck (1858-1947)
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I'm not at all trying to persuade you of anything but the value of an open mind.

There is also no evidence of how the earth was formed and every living creature in and on it. Just Sayin!!!

Brain scans of porn addicts: what's wrong with this picture?
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013...
Until recently, scientists believed our brains were fixed, their circuits formed and finalised in childhood, or "hardwired". Now we know the brain is "neuroplastic", and not only can it change, but that it works by changing its structure in response to repeated mental experience.

Examination of three-billion-year-old dirt causes UBC scientists to take a whole new view on evolution

The Earth was formed 4.6 billion years ago and, until now, scientists believed that oxygen began accumulating in the planet’s atmosphere about 2.3 billion years ago.
http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/09/25/exami...
Using advanced technology, Crowe and the other scientists studied the chemical composition of the soil and used mathematical models to determine that trace amounts of oxygen began to appear three billion years ago — 700 million years earlier than believed.

The oxygenation of Earth — the spark for evolution — is believed to be owed to cyanobacteria, microbes that consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen, or photosynthesize.

That's the attitude everyone will soon have: "If it's coming from a pocket other than my own, I'm in!"

Very perceptive of you. That, in essence, is why socialism doesn't work. People are not altruistic by nature. If there are angels, they're in heaven, not here on earth. If given a chance, people grab the low hanging fruit for themselves. Nobody will work their butts off their whole lives for somebody else's benefit.

Ever been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans? You can watch grown men & women shove 7 to 8 year-old kids out of the way to catch 50 cents worth of plastic beads. That's reality. That's us humans: apes wearing clothes.

Liberals live in La-La Land. It doesn't exist and government can't create it. All you get when they try is apes behind bureau desk grabbing all the goodies for their own friends & families, screw everybody else. Only these apes have scary, nasty power - and they know it.

For decades, the world's top evolutionary scientists believed Placoderms died out and then somehow the modern fish evolved. However, the latest 419-million-year-old fossil find has resolved a major missing link in evolution, said Professor John Long of the Flinders University.
