"The trolls posted the link to that thread"
You clicked the link. You could have ignored it. But you didn't. Once you clicked the link, you ignored the topic of the thread and made it all about you and your feelings. You didn't have to post a comment. But you did.
<quoted text>
I clicked a link. I started reading the thread. I found it interesting so I kept reading. It was a nice thread. The comments were kind and stayed on topic page after page. Until you showed up. Is there any thread on Topix that you have posted on where you weren't vile and hateful?
<quoted text>
I read what you posted Rose. Every bit of it. A big, loud, obnoxious, off topic distraction. That's what you are Rose.
<quoted text>
You posted your opinion about a story that someone else posted. We simply opined. If you are insulted, I suggest staying off this thread. But you can't. You are addicted to abuse. You cannot get enough. You taunt people into being abusive towards you. You need professional help.
<quoted text>
Honestly? I have never witnessed you have a civil conversation with anyone on these threads. You have agreed with those who agree with you but that isn't a conversation. It's just a "high Five".
I never posted those comments on that thread. You're lying.

And you haven't posted here long enough or simply have refused to notice that I can and have in fact posted quite civilly to others when they are civil in kind.

When people like you post lies, accusations, and insults, then you deserve no respect or civility whatever. It's that simple.

And no matter how many times you spam this lie about that thread it will never be true. I NEVER posted those things there, and you know it. You're playing games as usual.

I posted an opinion on that disgusting article PA posted, and you all went berserk. It's YOU who needs professional help, not I.

Stop posting to me and baiting me then. YOU posted to me with your lies and the link to that thread. YOU are the source of the problem and the trouble not me. See if you can control yourself, DP. You're no one to be accusing anyone of anything with your total lack of honor or integrity and lack of credibility.

Buzz off and quit harassing me and lying about me.

Employers face tax hit in states with no Medicaid expansion

The decision by 25 states not to expand Medicaid coverage under Obamacare could cost some employers more than $1.5 billion in new taxes starting next year, a new analysis reveals.

That tax hit might come as a shock to many of those businesses unaware of their exposure to the penalty—which will kick in if their employer-offered health plan is deemed too expensive and workers then buy private, subsidized Obamacare insurance.

"Paradoxically, state government efforts to constrain Medicaid cost growth in and after 2017 may lead to higher net taxes for employers in such jurisdictions beginning in 2015," said the analysis by Jackson Hewitt Tax Service.

The reason is complicated, like much of Obamacare.

"There's three words I use to describe this: esoteric, tedious and boring," said Brian Haile, Jackson Hewitt senior vice president for health policy and co-author of the analysis entitled "State Medicaid Choices and the Hidden Tax Surprises for Employers."

But it also is "incredibly expensive to get wrong or ignore," he added.

How expensive for employers? Between $2,000 to $3,000 per worker.

Jackson Hewitt found that employers in Texas, one state not expanding Medicaid, could be on the hook for up to nearly $400 million in new taxes each year, beginning in 2015. Florida employers could pay as much as $253 million in new taxes, and North Carolina employers as much as $120 million.

The cumulative hit to employers in the 25 states could be between $1.03 billion and $1.55 billion, Jackson Hewitt found.

Why Iraq Was a Mistake
By Lt. General GREGORY NEWBOLD, Retired
http://tinyurl.com/p4j93 Apr. 09, 2006
From 2000 until October 2002, I was a Marine Corps lieutenant general and director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. After 9/11, I was a witness and therefore a party to the actions that led us to the invasion of Iraq--an unnecessary war.

Inside the military family, I made no secret of my view that the zealots' rationale for war made no sense. And I think I was outspoken enough to make those senior to me uncomfortable.

But I now regret that I did not more openly challenge those who were determined to invade a country whose actions were peripheral to the real threat--al-Qaeda.

I retired from the military four months before the invasion, in part because of my opposition to those who had used 9/11's tragedy to hijack our security policy. Until now, I have resisted speaking out in public. I've been silent long enough.

A Spy Speaks Out
Former Top CIA Official Tyler Drumheller On "Faulty" Intelligence Claims /
http://tinyurl.com/rle4x / April 23, 2006
"The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy."
Tyler Drumheller CIA Ret.

(CBS) When no weapons of mass destruction surfaced in Iraq, President Bush insisted that all those WMD claims before the war were the result of faulty intelligence. But a former top CIA official, Tyler Drumheller — a 26-year veteran of the agency — has decided to do something CIA officials at his level almost never do: Speak out.

He tells correspondent Ed Bradley the real failure was not in the intelligence community but in the White House. He says he saw how the Bush administration, time and again, welcomed intelligence that fit the president's determination to go to war and turned a blind eye to intelligence that did not.

Ex-CIA Official Paul Pillar Faults Use of Data on Iraq
Intelligence 'Misused' to Justify War, He Says
February 10, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/azl6w
The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East until last year has accused the Bush administration of "cherry-picking" intelligence on Iraq to justify a decision it had already reached to go to war, and of ignoring warnings that the country could easily fall into violence and chaos after an invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Paul R Pillar's critique is one of the most severe indictments of White House actions by a former Bush official since Richard C. Clarke, a former National Security Council staff member, went public with his criticism of the administration's handling of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and its failure to deal with the terrorist threat beforehand.

It is also the first time that such a senior intelligence officer has so directly and publicly condemned the administration's handling of intelligence.

No other future Supreme Court or any court is allowed to use Bush v Gore as precedent. Bush is truly an illegitimate President. http://tinyurl.com/2ps3e3
George W. Bush's January 20, 2001 inauguration was unconstitutional. This isn't because Bush lost the popular vote. Nor is it because he lost Florida and thus the electoral vote. The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear the Florida recount lawsuit, Bush v. Gore, violated the U.S. Constitution. It's a states' rights issue. Elections fall under state law; the highest court that may resolve a legal challenge about an election is a state supreme court. The U.S. Supreme Court--a federal body--didn't have jurisdiction in the case.

Has Bush v. Gore Become the Case That Must Not Be Named?
August 15, 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/qbx2s
At a law school Supreme Court conference that I attended last fall, there was a panel on “The Rehnquist Court.” No one mentioned Bush v. Gore, the most historic case of William Rehnquist’s time as chief justice, and during the Q. and A. no one asked about it. When I asked a prominent law professor about this strange omission, he told me he had been invited to participate in another Rehnquist retrospective, and was told in advance that Bush v. Gore would not be discussed.
The ruling that stopped the Florida recount and handed the presidency to George W. Bush is disappearing down the legal world’s version of the memory hole, the slot where, in George Orwell’s “1984,” government workers disposed of politically inconvenient records. The Supreme Court has not cited it once since it was decided, and when Justice Antonin Scalia, who loves to hold forth on court precedents, was asked about it at a forum earlier this year, he snapped,“Come on, get over it.”

There is a legal argument for pushing Bush v. Gore aside. The majority opinion announced that the ruling was “limited to the present circumstances” and could not be cited as precedent. But many legal scholars insisted at the time that this assertion was itself dictum — the part of a legal opinion that is nonbinding — and illegitimate, because under the doctrine of stare decisis, courts cannot make rulings whose reasoning applies only to a single case. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/15/opinion/15t...

Sandra Day O'Connor questions court's decision to take Bush v. Gore
April 27, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/c9sy69e
Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor hasn't given much thought to which was the most important case she helped decide during her 25 years on the bench. But she has no doubt which was the most controversial.

It was Bush v. Gore, which ended the Florida recount and decided the 2000 presidential election.

Looking back, O'Connor said, she isn't sure the high court should have taken the case.

"It took the case and decided it at a time when it was still a big election issue," O'Connor said during a talk Friday with the Tribune editorial board. "Maybe the court should have said,'We're not going to take it, goodbye.'"

The case, she said, "stirred up the public" and "gave the court a less-than-perfect reputation."

"Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision," she said. "It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn't done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day."

What "defaced" your thread was using it as a haven for racists by posters like Ralff, Dp, Don't Snow me, GR, American Lady, Quirky, and you.

Due to all of your involvement the true face of this thread was revealed and it continues to serve it's purpose as a thread where a small but select few of racists and bigots can agree and congratulate each other on their backwards hateful views and opinions.
