The White House says its surpassed its goal for people enrolled in Obamacare. its amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory and fine people if they don't do it, and keep extending the deadline for months.

You really missed what I said, didn't you. God help us all.
But you are correct in that it's the fat cats that are taking the bigger slice of the pie and keeping it for themselves, whether they are Republicans or Democrats, that's immaterial. It makes no difference what label they attach to themselves, they are working both sides of the fence, working toward a common goal, to get and keep themselves rich and keep us poor.
The SCOTUS decision yesterday again confirmed that CONs are the party of the 1%. CONs want unlimited funds to continue to flow into politics, from anonymous fat cat 1% donors, so they can buy elections with their $. CONs don't care that those unlimited funds could come from anyone, anywhere...China, Russia, wherever. Several 1% CONs have recently said in interviews that they DESERVE to have more votes than you or me, since they are a 1%er. Yet CON chickens keep voting for the party of KFC.

Why are you even here? I've been reading this forum off and on for a while now. I've noticed three things about you.
One is that all you do is insult and attack people.
Two is that the only way you seen to be able to make a rational post is when you copy and paste people's posts from other forums over to here and try to pass them off as your own.
Three is that no one ever pays any attention to you.
So what is it you get out of this forum? Are you lonely and this makes you feel like you know people? Why are you so angry towards everyone? Maybe if you tried acting like a normal person and stop being such a jerk towards everyone you would be included in conversations. Have you ever thought about that or are you just incapable of civilized behavior?
I feel bad for you. I couldn't imagine being so hateful and angry like you are.
You're paying attention to me now....so...

Like the rest of the gang, I'm adding my two cents to the pot so that anyone outside of this little circle you have going here will have another view point to consider. Does that bother you? Uncivilized? Really??? I've done nothing more than anyone else on here.

Wake up Chilli. I never said I was for or against anyone specific. I don't like the way either side is playing the middle class or the poor. But since we only have two parties, I've got to go with one of them. Not a lot of choices there.

And when you say the Republicans are the party of the 1%,...1% of what? Check the demographics...your story doesn't hold water. Get a clue as to what is really going on, please.

If you're the Poplar Bluff poster who's been here for a while, you're in denial. You're clearly a CON and, while I understand why you'd try to pretend that you're not one, your prior posts, links, etc., have repeatedly confirmed your hard lean to the right. Don't be shy, you're a CON fan, so don't deny it, brag about it. If you don't know what the 1% is, do some research, dude! I know what's going on. Why don't you? If you're going to continue to vote, educate yourself, will ya?

Since you replied to a woman, here is a truthful response.

Yeah, get with the crusty old white repubs. Just keep in mind you can't have a sex life, cause that makes you a slut. You will have to walk around with an aspirin between your knees. Contraceptives? That makes you a whore. If you get raped, you can't get pregnant, one of them told me so. You WILL work for .70 cents for every dollar a man makes, cause hey, your only function in this world is to churn out white babies and having a career makes you a shrew.

So to sum up, if you have sex (even once a year) without marriage to a big powerful man to make your decisions, you are ruined, just like in the extremist muslim world. You can't even use contraceptives even for health reason, cause that automatically makes you a whore. You will never make as much money as a man, cause you are to flighty and well.. booby to make real decisions.

Check out the Duggars. Their women get to learn music, art, stitching, sewing, etc... Science? Not appropriate for a woman. Math? Only enough so she can stay under budget for her shopping trips. Handle your own money? Nah, a guy named Jim Bob will do it for you. Cause you are too stupid as a women to hold big numbers in your head. Work on your swing technique though, cause you certainly won't pick your husband. Jim Bob will do that too.(better get to work on those white babies)

Do you get how ridiculous you are now?

Your own link shows that 53.9% of the votes cast by people making OVER $100,000 was for the Republican Party.

(And ... we only have TWO parties?

"WE THE BILLIONAIRE KINGS OF AMERICA

In its decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, five members of the Supreme Court have taken pity on Shaun McCutcheon and the 650 other Americans who can only buy up to $123,200 in politicians. When you truly believe in the principle of "one dollar, one vote," as these five guys in black robes do, you want to make sure to overrule any restrictions made by the Representatives of the People in Congress chosen by that old quaint notion of "one person, one vote." This way the Five can insure that the Koch Brothers are literally millions of times more important than ordinary Americans.

There was a time when Americans revolted against the idea of kings, dukes, and earls using their vast inherited wealth to control our destiny. We actually fought a revolution in the name of all men being created equal. And, in time, that notion came to include all men and women, even descendants of former slaves.

Five men in robes have now, in the biting dissent of Justice Stephen Breyer, made up their own facts, misconstrued the law, undermined "the political integrity of our government institutions" and "create[d] a loophole that will allow a single individual to contribute millions of dollars." This not only "eviscerates our Nation's campaign finance laws"; it leaves us "incapable of dealing with grave problems of democratic legitimacy that those laws were intended to resolve."

Once five people in black robes overruled We the People in 2000, throwing away our votes to install their president in place of the one we (and most Floridians) wanted, I suppose it is no great further step to simply end "democratic legitimacy" altogether and allow billionaires to buy the politicians they want.

But the Supreme Court should revise the Preamble of the Constitution to reflect the reality they have declared today. "We the People" should be replaced by "We, Sheldon Adelson, Charles Koch and David Koch, the Billionaire Kings of America."

Sadly while I support a constitutional amendment to overturn both McCutcheon and Citizens' United, I'm under no delusion that we will get two-thirds of both Houses of Congress, including a fair number of Republicans, to prefer "one person, one vote" over "one dollar, one vote." The only possible solution to preserve our Republic is to keep electing Democratic presidents - and to elect them beyond the margin of the Supreme Court's plausible ability to steal an election - until one day the Tyranny of the Five ends.

And on that day, when a Democratic president nominates and the Senate confirms a justice on the Supreme Court who actually respects the Constitution she or he is sworn to uphold, we can once again have Government of the People, by the People, and for the People.

Until then, let us hope the Adelson/Koch/ALEC Regime is not too cruel to those of who still believe that ordinary people should have a voice in who represents us."

What blows my mind is that people who are so gung ho about all this, while the very democracy they pretend to love is being ripped from under them. It's ridiculous. Anyone with common sense can see that we are in trouble, and have been since Bushie, but all they do is whine about catchwords that fox news tells them. For god's sake, the top dog at fox news has gone on the record stating the only purpose of that entire channel is to get certain people elected.

The baby boomers are not all bad, but a significant portion of that generation has driven this country into the ditch, and now they want to keep it there.

George W. Bush: My Painting Of Myself In The Bathtub Was Meant To 'Shock'

Former President George W. Bush admitted he was "annoyed" by hackers who leaked images of his paintings, specifically one of himself in the bathtub he painted to "shock" his art instructor.

Bush's talent for art was first exposed to the world in February 2013, when hackers who gained access to Bush's sister's email account and several others made pictures of the paintings public.

In an interview with his daughter Jenna Bush Hager for NBC's "Today" airing Friday, Bush called the hacking "an invasion of one's privacy."

"Yeah, I was annoyed. And nor do I want my paintings to get out. And I found it very interesting the first painting that came out was the one I painted of myself in the bathtub," Bush said. "I did so because I wanted to kind of shock my instructor."

But Bush is confident his latest work is going to impress people.

Bush discussed a new exhibit opening at his presidential library called "The Art of Leadership," which will feature "more than two dozen never-before-exhibited portraits painted by President Bush," according to a Time report from February. The paintings will likely depict foreign leaders Bush worked with while serving as president, a series the New York Times reported he was working on in November 2013.

When Hager asked what the reactions will be to the paintings, Bush predicted he'd surprise people with his talent.

"I think they're going to be,'wow, George Bush is a painter,'" Bush said. "I mean I'm sure when they heard that I was painting them, if they had, they're going to say,'well, I look forward to seeing the stick figure he painted.'"

Bush said he hopes the leaders take the paintings "in the spirit of friendship," saying he was "willing to give it a shot, in terms of getting people to see how I felt about them."

And there are tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children who had absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks who are well past the point of being simply "annoyed" with Bush.
