Hi Rose
LOL! Hi Free.

I need to view that highly informative video again myself. I hope someone "of the utmost per se" provides the link.

<quoted text>Yes, and I feel exactly the same way when dealing with brain dead right wing self-absorbed ignorant trolls who would rather see their country harmed than find a compromise that PROGRESSES this republic out of the economic mire we've been stuck navigating. Who knows when the next step might be into quicksand or off a shelf and in over our heads. Still want to play politics? I do NOT, and I am most certainly not alone.
I speak with younger people every single day - those who are working, those looking for work, those who are in school and already worried about student loan debt and employment opportunities and those resuming school and worried about student loan debt and future earnings after securing that debt. I hear young people apologize for living at home and recognize they feel guilty but that they work everyday and try hard and pay their bills. There's almost nothing left over for recreation or pleasure or treats - no plans for marriage and babies and homes of their own which seem so far removed from the possibilities. I speak to my peers who are nearing retirement and barely making it and wondering how they'll deal with retirement and the tenuous grasp they have on security, some with pensions half of what they once expected to realize. I won't speak again about those I know who can attest to the inner workings of government. CG can say what he wants about that if he sees fit. I just know what I know.
I also speak to my elderly mother and realize just how many health care providers have been taking advantage of the elderly and taxpayer contributions with their rip-off the elderly schemes. Makes me sick.
You shouldn't spend so much time alone or away from mainstream folks who are also just trying to survive. It's nothing like you think. They're nothing like you think they are either.
I don't fault this President or the dems for at least trying to eliminate SOME of the obstacles that are blocking opportunity and trying to slow some of the inequality which is alarmingly real and a nightmare to every older American who lived in a different world where we believed we could make life better - and did.
There's nothing Communist or Socialist about it. You've been fed utter nonsense and lies, and you buy it. Sad. Support your President until somebody from the other party puts together a plan that makes sense and that doesn't further enrich the rich at the expense of everybody else. That has NOT happened at all.
You are just mad because there is no honorable reason to become dependent on society. Keep thinking of one though. It keep you busy.

How indicative that you'd trivialize being American. Not only does it explain your attraction to Obama but confirms your being a liar - you didn't honor Bush "as any other president". And don't flatter yourself, I wasn't attacking you personally, I was stomping liberals in general. You were just the first snake I came to.
Obama's victories exemplify what an unholy alliance can accomplish. It had nothing to do with Obama, the man (sic). The unpopularity of virtually every policy he's either imposed or proposed, proves it. When you've got the MSM pushing from behind and providing propaganda in advance, all it took was the moronic gullibility of his voting demographic, to win. I find that a pretty depressing indicator of where we are as a nation. One can only hope you gain good sense as you gain experience, our schools sure cut you short.
Most of these libs are so stupid, so ignorant, so clueless only the complete financial collapse of this country and the mau mau's invading their homes en masse could open their eyes. Of course by then it'll be too late.

Look Lady. Politics is not the reason I am against the individual mandate starting a year ahead of the employer mandates. I could care less if the employer mandates started on Jan 1, 2014 the same as the Individual mandates start. But since Obama gave the employers a break until Jan 1, 2015, It would only be fair to give the workers that break too.
What does it matter to me? It doesn't. I have great private insurance through my employer and the taxpayers subsidize 75% of my premiums. I have a choice of plans and can change insurance plans each year during open season. I didn't even have a waiting period between the time I signed up for a dental plan and the time I was able to use it. No, Obamacare doesn't affect me one little bit. I'm exempt from the law.
It's the millions of people out there that make just enough that they don't get it for free that I care about. They are the ones who will suffer. They have families that will suffer as well.
Those people who live off their parents, grandparents, siblings and friends, who only get and keep a job long enough to get fired and draw unemployment. Those people who are in jail as much of the year than they are out. People who make milking the welfare system and private charities their full time job. They are the ones who benefit from forcing others to reach in their pockets and buy insurance or pay the fines.
Some employers will only provide affordable health care to their low wage workforce when the government forced them to provide it. Until then, people who are already struggling to make ends meet shouldn't be punished.
Again, If Obamacare turns out to be the best thing since sliced bread, people will buy it and keep it. What's the hurry in issuing fines and penalties the first year? Give the people a year to try it out and if it's worth it they will buy it and if they aren't buying, it's not worth it. Long term contracts are for goods and services with a proven track record. Not some law that we won't know what's in it until it's too late.
"But since Obama gave the employers a break until Jan 1, 2015, It would only be fair to give the workers that break too."

True.. But my interest is more for my kids and grandkids..

"I have great private insurance through my employer and the taxpayers subsidize 75% of my premiums. I have a choice of plans and can change insurance plans each year during open season."

In business I was able to write off 66% off my taxes without any open season.. I do feel that should have been a factor within aca and passed out to all Americans without a mandate.. Grant it being in a 35 to 30% tax bracket it only saved me 2k a year in cash..

"Those people who live off their parents, grandparents, siblings and friends, who only get and keep a job long enough to get fired and draw unemployment."

True.. And many do that its usually 6 months and don't forget they get EIC..

I don't think anyone should be taxed for not getting HCI and that is what it is a tax and not a fine.. The court already ruled that..

Republicans and their stu*pid supporters [social rejects like you] are the only ones who have held our US debt ceiling or budget hostage under the Obama Administration which has contributed to the deterioration of not only the "American Dream" but our economy as well.

So you keep losing elections... well wake up and change your outdated ways.

>> with his two hands real hard pulling her out. that's when everybody started screaming, a lot of women, no, not the lady, not the baby. no, she has a baby.

Exactly what keeps the AGW propagandists in business. Wise up, dummies.
What are you saying here in relationship to that comment? Let's put it back into context, shall we?

If you manipulate the data to say what you want it to say, and the science behind it doesn't add up (say you fudged your numbers or the usefulness of non-standard tools you used such incorporating bone densitometry using a wood wedge (aughhhhh!) or your double blind study wasn't really double blind or your sampling was too small to be statistically significant but you add a few zeroes here and there, etc., when this comes to see the light of day in the scientific community, your credibility goes straight out the window. The institution that provided your tenure and paycheck is truly embarrassed. You may even have caused harm to other human beings with your fudged and/or manipulated data, and you will be defunded, axed and severed from the institution, and you won't be hired again by any reputable institution who considers your ethics to be at least as important as your intellect. You can probably run for office.

You're welcome, you incorrigible clown of little capability and lots of duplicity. Dummie indeed. Next time post the link so I don't have to 'splain to or about you.

If you're honest and diligent and thorough, even when it isn't popular, you can probably get signed up for serious research on advanced weapons planning and cost effective analysis of major weapons systems, etc. and/or become Dean of a major institution.

D*mmit. READ. Vorenus had put up the link yesterday that explains exactly why we cannot put off the fines and penalties for the first year. You didn't read it, did you? Why would you when this is all about you in the first place? Isn't it? OR, are you truly interested? If so, you'll have to read.
If we put off the fines and penalties, only the sick will buy it and the healthy will postpone purchase, and insurance companies will be forced to raise rates, and the ACA will fail. It's really pretty simple stuff. Insurers must have a sizable number of healthy enrollees to offset the numbers of enrollees who are sick and/or have pre-existing conditions.

Of course its not free and wasn't it's you that suggested Posi might have a lean attached to his property if he got ill?? I guess in his case it will be "pay me later" in your eyes.. Now explain to all of us again how the illegals will be paying again.. Explain how the poor without any accets will be paying?? We already had free health clinics.. What is giving a homeless person a health card going to do??
