As usual, you are pretty spot on...<quoted text>
Excuse me, you complete jacka$$- I am so tired of your uninformed posts deriding hard working people who are actually trying to pay their own way. You have NO IDEA what you are talking about here. But you see someone complain about how Obama's policies are hurting the Middle Class and you are like one of Pavlov's dogs and start salivating and rabidly spitting out your garbage about dead beat Right Wingers - I am SICK OF IT. A Flexible Savings Account is paid for with money the employee EARNS, the only benefit is that it is not subject to payroll taxes. The typical use is for dependent children's medical expenses, but it can also be used for senior dependent care. There are a number of hoops that must be jumped through to qualify. As Bored said, this will especially hurt families with special needs children. You know, the ones you claim Conservatives don't care about - well, it's Obama's policies hurting them here.
Bill in D'ville - please correct me if I am mistaken on any of this.

Wahhhhh, wahhhhhh, wahhhh
Right Wingers might have to actually pay for something themselves instead of being deadbeat parasites.
They might have to buy medical insurance instead of forcing the rest of us to give them their government Medicare, or just pay for their medical bills when they walk away from their doctor and hospital charges.
Damn, from unfunded wars, to unfunded tax cuts, to stealing free medical care.... Do Right Wingers ever pay for anything ?
#8396 May 1, 2013
What a moronic post.
Just like Right Wingers claim that a tax break for a 100 foot yacht as a second home is "fair", because "anyone" can but a 100 foot yacht and claim it as a second home.
Now, anyone can use a FSA,(something only a Right Wing Wacko would think relevant), especially that guy with 3 kids who makes $11.00 an hour.
He has lots of disposable income that allows him to set aside money in a HSA. After he pays rent, or a mortgage, or a car payment, or buy food, or clothes, or house and car insurance for his family, he has lots and lots of extra money to buy that yacht, or divert to a HSA.
Do Right Wingers have the faintest idea what a "working American" makes and what their "disposable" income actually is ?
Yep... Once again, Right Wingers are terrified the taxpayer funded gravy train they slurp from might dry up even the tiniest bit, and they'll have to pull their lips from the taxpayers teat and pay some of their own way.

So, you call Aggies post moronic then you go on to post an incredibly moronic post.
I have to ask you:
What grade are you in school?
Do your write for the school paper?
Are you one of those students who wears all black along with makeup and a Goth style haircut?
Do you keep to yourself all the time.
Do you believe everyone hates you?
Do you or your parents own several guns?
Do you despise your teachers because you think they are all stupid?
Not really trying to pry into your personal life, just really wonder what is going on with you?

You must be referring to the Original Libertards, more commonly known as Libertarians. You know those folks that believe in the stacked-deck market approach to all the problems we face.
The Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) was founded in 1985. It does policy and lobbying work on the environment from a libertarian perspective. It touts itself as a conservative answer to the Public Interest Research Groups (e.g. NYPIRG, ConnPIRG et al.), progressive lobbying groups concerned with environmental issues....
In December 2009 CFACT was a co-organiser of the Copenhagen Climate Challenge, a conference for climate change skeptics to co-incide with the COP15 climate change conference.
In 1985, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) was founded to promote a positive voice on environment and development issues. Its co-founders, David Rothbard and Craig Rucker, believed very strongly that the power of the market combined with the applications of safe technologies could offer humanity practical solutions to many of the world’s pressing concerns.
Marc Morano, former Communications Director for the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee and senior aide, speechwriter, and climate researcher for Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), is the executive editor and chief correspondent for ClimateDepot.com , a pioneering climate and eco-news center. The news effort, begun in April 2009, is a special project of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT)...

REVEALED: Donors Trust is the secret ATM machine for climate deniers
Aliya Haq | 15 February 2013
A new Greenpeace analysis released today shows that Donors Trust, a shadowy funding vehicle, has laundered $146 million in climate denial funding from 2002 to 2011.
In addition, a Center for Public Integrity report released yesterday illustrates the efforts of Donors Trust to set up conservative media megaphones in state capitals. Today, the Guardian reported that these ideological media outlets have been instrumental in anti-climate fights at the state level. These include state and regional attacks against wind power, solar power, and carbon pollution reduction programs.
As climate denial funding from traceable Big Oil sources like Exxon and the Koch brothers is declining, the anonymous money funneled through Donors Trust is skyrocketing.

Nothing to hide.
Generally happy and successful guy.
Lots of friends.
Own 23 firearms,(in safes).
Part of charity that trains LEOs and Lawyers in Costa Rica and Columbia.
B.A., M.A., J.D.
Still have dinners with several law school professors.
Operate a consulting business in Florida and Central and South America.
Resident of Union County,(on a beautiful little mountain).
Own property in SW Florida and Central and South America.
Traveled 4 continents.
Several kids - all have done and doing fine (knock on wood)- close family.
Here's the thing.
Right Wingers, using fear, hatred, and intimidation have swung our country so close to Fascism that we don't even question:
- sending thousands of our troops to die, and spending Trillions of Dollars in unnecessary and counter-productive wars;
- tax policies guaranteed to cause the greatest income disparity in modern history;
- a federal budget that spends more on making war than the rest of the industrialized world combined;
- labor policies that result in the highest profits and productivity in modern history for corporations and constantly declining income for the employees who create that profit and productivity;
- defunding public education to the point we rank far behind Finland and South Korea;
- the executive branch of government overtly claiming the right to assassinate American citizens, and to kidnap, torture, and kill anyone, anywhere in the world they decide needs to die.
These are just the plain self-defeating counter-productive facts.
How can average Americans possibly accept these circumstances as "normal" ? They don't - when they are pointed out.
Someone has to stand up to this lunacy and point out that it is lunacy and that what the Right Wing Wackos claim to be "American" is the absolute antithesis of everything America and its Constitution stand for.
Thankfully, it's pretty easy to do, and being a multi-tasker, I typed this while listening in on a phone conference involving 4 attorneys and 5 investors. Never had to say a word.

No wonder you and ChicknButt get along so well, you both have serious reading comprehension issues.
I have posted at the bottom the website that the govt provides, so I assume you won't say it's a suspect source.-(hmm, don't know, you think every source that doesn't parrot you is paid for by "big oil.")
This covers things like copays, glasses, dental, and other dependent care expenses etc.(while also having a boatland of exemptions and hoops to jump to qualify) and there WAS a $5,000/year cap on how much could go in, but Obamacare both lowers the cap to $2,500/year and includes a "use it or lose it" requirement so that anything that isn't used in the year, the employee FORFEITS.
Which on a completely different tangent is EXACTLY like the govt - there is no benefit for not spending the money you put away to cover potential unexpected medical/dental/or other dependent care expenses - you know, being RESPONSIBLE. Instead, it is just like the baseline budgeting that the govt uses and that means at the end of the fiscal year in September, the govt offices go on a spending spree to spend money that could other wise go back into the govt coffers.
"Right Wingers might have to actually pay for something themselves instead of being deadbeat parasites."
That's the whole point, moron. They are trying to pay for their expenses themselves, instead of being a typical Democrat voter and sitting on their backsides waiting for their govt checks to come in.
"Do Right Wingers ever pay for anything ?"
That's the problem, we pay for everything - and still contribute more to charity than the oh, so self-righteous Left.
#8402 May 1, 2013
Yeah, what Bored "said" was lifted from somewhere else...
The "Special Needs Kids Tax" This provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs) of $2500 (Currently, there is no federal government limit). There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C.(National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.
The "special needs kids tax" refers to a cap of $2,500 that the new law places on spending from FSAs.(See pages 74 to 77 of JCT’s technical explanation.) The argument made in the e-mail is that "many" families with special needs children now use FSAs to pay tuition at private schools catering to special needs children, schools that ATR says "can easily exceed $14,000 per year" in Washington, D.C. Perhaps so. IRS rules do allow use of FSA funds to pay for such expenses with pre-tax dollars. But the e-mail message offers no evidence of how many families might be taking advantage of this tax break currently. The claim is copied from the website of Americans for Tax Reform, but as ATR itself says: "For most people, the $2500 cap won’t be noticed." As ATR concedes, FSAs "tend to be used for things like small deductibles, co-payments, eyeglasses, over-the-counter medicines, and laser eye surgery." The amount deferred in the typical FSA is probably much less than $2500 today, ATR says. The JCT expects the change will bring in $13 billion over 10 years, but says nothing about how much of that is likely to come from the pockets of parents of special needs children.

You really just exploded your own argument there, Einstein. The people who get the most out of this are the Middle Class. They get to put away $5,000/ year - oops, just $2,500/ year, Thanks Obama-with pre-tax dollars to cover expenses that are not covered by their medical insurance or that are related to dependent care- which can include daycare, since to qualify both parents must be working (though that word might have to be defined for the typical Democrat voter - never mind, you have to be WORKING to set this money aside, so again, a non-issue for the average Democrat voter).
And back to Bored's original point, this was a great way for the parents of special needs children to be able to afford special care and schooling for their children, not so much now. But, hey, the parents can always QUIT working and QUIT being responsible for themselves and their children and possibly their dependent senior parents and so qualify for all those benefits the typical Democrat voter gets - do you like that idea better?

Also from the same website you referenced:
Obamacare Flexible Spending Account Cap: As of Jan. 1, the 30-35 million Americans who use a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs face a new government cap of $2,500. This will squeeze $13 billion of tax money from Americans over the next ten years.(Before Obamacare, the accounts were unlimited under federal law, though employers were allowed to set a cap.).... Needless to say, this tax will especially impact middle class families.
So what is your point, special needs families are being hurt, middle class families are being hurt - just exactly how do you see that this as a good thing?
Oh, and I should clarify - I said earlier the cap was $5,000, that was only if the employer set a cap. If the employer didn't object, there was no cap - that would really have helped families who knew ahead of time of large expenses they would need to plan for - not any more.

Let's look at a few of your points:
1. Fascism - a system of government marked by centralization of authority - Nope, that's the Democrat ideal, definitely not the Republican/Conservative view.
-Fear and Hate - also a weapon of the Left - disagree with Obama- you're just a bigot and a "HATER"
-Want to preserve the integrity of the voting process - one of the hallmarks of this country- by requiring an ID to prove that someone is who they say they are before they cast that precious vote -( you know that same ID you have to show to cash a government check or to buy alcohol ) and suddenly you are trying to deprive someone of the right to vote - Give me a break.
2. Tax policies that are making it harder and harder for the middle class to achieve a higher standard of living - we can thank the Democrats. Tax policies that are making it harder and harder for businesses large and small to grow and thus employ more people and thus enable those people to better their lives - again, thanks Democrats
3. Defunding education - we plow more and more into education every year and our students are getting more and more left behind. DC with the highest per student outlay on education in the country also has the worst graduation rates in the country. More money is obviously not the answer. A complete overhaul is the answer - and it needs to begin with decentralization and breaking the stranglehold the teachers' unions have on the educational system.
4. Oh, you mean the drone strikes that Obama has used upwards of 283 (as of Sept 2012 according to CNN) more than 6 times the number Bush authorized. And Obama wanting to use them WITHIN the US borders.
5. If only the Democrats respected the Constitution instead of trying to shred it at every turn.

You've been busy, you get an atta-boy. But your efforts fail to undermine the premise that global climate change is not caused by man.
What you have done is shown a libtard will go to any length to imply a 1% causation by man equals a 100% climate disaster. Hyperbole is normally IO's characteristic personality, have you now decided to become another hyperbolee?
"SPECIAL REPORT: More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims – Challenge UN IPCC & Gore"
"The well over 1,000 dissenting scientists are almost 20 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers."
" U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007
"Senate Report Debunks "Consensus"
" The new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee's office of the GOP Ranking Member details the views of the scientists, the overwhelming majority of whom spoke out in 2007.
Even some in the establishment media now appear to be taking notice of the growing number of skeptical scientists. In October, the Washington Post Staff Writer Juliet Eilperin conceded the obvious, writing that climate skeptics "appear to be expanding rather than shrinking." Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as the year man-made global warming fears "bite the dust." (LINK) In addition, many scientists who are also progressive environmentalists believe climate fear promotion has "co-opted" the green movement."
And many other sires can be quoted, but why even bother if someone insists 1% equals 100%.

That's a very impressive resume.
I regret to inform you that we do not currently have any positions open which might parallel your experience. However, we will keep your application on file should anything arise in the near future.
What about me? I am a student at U. of Kentucky where I am a Senior. I have been accepted at Georgia's School of Veterinary Medicine where I will attend this Fall. I am a Navy vet.
Since you will accuse me of "slurping" up Government benefits, I am paying for my school myself by working along with help from the G.I. Bill. Yes, both Kentucky and Georgia schools receive Government grants.
I don't believe everything I read nor everything I hear.
I believe there is enough hypocrisy in this country to go around whether Republican or Democrat. The nation's problems, as serious as they are, are not caused by the American people but, by those we elect to serve us in Washington. That includes Obama and both houses of Congress on both sides. It is sad to see the great divide in our country by all of us who can argue all day long, but, in the end, all we have is our vote. I am a Conservative and I believe in Conservative principles but respect the views of others even when I don't agree.
I am asst. manager in a supermarket and work most weeks 6 days. I am able to work around the requirements of my studies thanks to a great boss. I drive an old, beat up Ford that uses way too much gas and even the dents are dented. I enjoy life and look forward to better days ahead for our country.
My grandmother lives in Blairsville. It is a great place that I like to visit as often as possible.
