Show me a "right wing" politician more interested in recognizing the rights of individuals, than in removing, restricting, or reducing them,(and handing said rights over to corporations) and I'll show you one who MIGHT be able to win back the Presidency.
The hacks "the right" have been fielding, not so much.
Bs. This is one of the reasons hacks like McConnell are far more interested in waging way on people in their own party. I've posted about my friend from Venezuela and his warning of the direction this nation has been moving for some time. Today I learned of a guy in Ca., Igor Birman, and my guess is establishment hacks on the right and left will hate him and his views as well. Don't think he can run for potus as he is from Russia. Another one I hope does well is Matt Bevin as he targets the pos McConnell. I'll say outright here and now if we arrive in 2016 and the choice is a McConnell or a Christie I most likely won't vote.

Yes, its on many tablets and so called smart phones. Wife got a good one that has a real keyboard. I made the mistake of going with an i-phone. Lol I need it. Also I'll say I'm sorry right now for unchristian like words towards Sen. McConnell. Just fired up.

No apology necessary if the shoe fits, CC.

Some of these elder statesmen on both sides need to retire, and let the younger
generation get to work, so that something can finally get done in Washington.

Hobby Lobby has made some very interesting investment choices, to go along with its support and subsidy of China's one-child policy, through purchasing most of HL's products from that country.

http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/109936...

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries makes the Plan B morning-after pill and ParaGard, a copper IUD. Pfizer is the maker of the abortion-inducing drugs Cytotec and Prostin E2.

Hobby Lobby's mutual funds also invest in two health insurance companies that cover surgical abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in their health care policies....

Yet the company has the unmitigated gall to claim the 'freedom of religion' as a valid reason why it should be exempt from the law.

I really hope the SCOTUS takes the source of HL's profits, and the investments it makes through its mutual funds, into consideration when deciding whether a corporation has the 'religious right' to manage the lives of employees.

The 2013 Barry Goldwater Award winner was Oklahoma State Representative Doug Cox, MD. As a highly regarded member of the Oklahoma State House, Rep. Cox has tirelessly and effectively argued against more than 160 anti-women’s health measures. In addition to his legislative job, Rep. Cox still serves as an emergency room physician, often working nights and weekends in the ER even while the state house is in session. As a physician, Dr. Cox knows and understands the impact anti-women’s health legislation can have on the health and well-being of all Oklahoma women.

goldwater.jpg

Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma, which has worked closely with Representative Cox over the years, nominated him for this award, which he received at the 2013 Planned Parenthood National Conference. He delivered a moving and inspirational acceptance speech that showed how deeply he supports women’s health, saying,“I unequivocally believe access to birth control has emancipated women to control their own destiny.”

At his own political risk, Rep. Cox fights against the extreme and out-of-touch anti-women’s health measures being pushed by other members in the state house. It takes a lot of courage to speak out as he does; he truly embodies what it means to act on one’s conscience regardless of what others think. Rep. Cox stands up for Oklahoma women’s access to affordable health care — even as others work to limit access; he’s a true champion for women’s health.

Rep. Cox joins a list of former recipients which includes:
2012 — U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna (New York)
2011 — U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
2010 — State Sen. Jean Schodorf (Kansas)
2009 — U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert (Illinois)
2008 — U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (Illinois)
2007 — State Assemblyman Keith Richman (California)
2006 — State Rep. Stan Adelstein (South Dakota)
2005 — U.S. Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (New York)
2004 — former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons (Connecticut)
2003 — former Lt. Gov. Joy Corning (Iowa)
2002 — U.S. Rep. Steve Horn (California)
2001 — State Sen. Jeff Wentworth (Texas)
2000 — U.S. Rep. Connie Morella (Maryland) and U.S. Sen. John Chafee (Rhode Island - posthumously)
1999 — U.S. Rep. Bill Green (New York)
1998 — Mary Dent Crisp, former chair of the National Republican Coalition for Choice
1997 — former U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater (Arizona) and his wife Susan
1996 — U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe (Maine) and U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson (Connecticut)
1995 — former Gov. Jock McKernan (Maine)
.

.
Dr. Cox pointed out that teen pregnancy is still an issue in Oklahoma. The state’s teen birth rate is the second highest in the nation, and more than 2,000 girls under the age of 17 gave birth in 2010. The state lawmaker noted that if the state prevents teens from being able to buy emergency contraception without a prescription, girls will lose out on important resources to control their sexual health.

“This bill is prejudiced,” Cox said.“It’s prejudiced against women. A 14-year-old boy can go to the truck stop and buy all the condoms he wants. He can control his destiny. This bill takes the ability to control their destiny away from women. But that’s what we do in the Republican Party these days.”

Cox was the most recent recipient of Planned Parenthood’s Barry Goldwater Award, an annual recognition of an outstanding public official in the Republican Party who has demonstrated a commitment to women’s health issues. The national organization noted that he has argued against over 160 anti-choice bills during his time in the state legislature.

the Borowitzy report:
More than 7 million people have signed up for Obamacare and that means there are 17 million more people who have health insurance, according to former President Clinton.

I guess that depends on whether 7 million policies have been written by the Obamacare exchanges, or if the policies written by the exchanges only COVER 7 million people.

Right?

A couple days ago the POTUS did a happy dance on national television grandly announcing enrollment for Obamacare had reached 7.1 million.(Amazing that he had the precise number right down to the decimal point when only a week prior, no one had a clue what the numbers were.) And of course, no one from the WH wants to divulge how many people have actually >paid< the premiums and that 7.1 million number is a bloated number anyway but that's just me being petty. The important thing is the entre left wing media in typical synchronized fashion let the bells toll and with the balloons rising, touted "let the joyous news be spread, the US healthcare system is nearly dead!".........What surprised me was President Obama also admitted to being baffled. "I don't get it," he stated. "Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of people having health insurance?"

On the off chance the President is reading along this morning, I'm going to try and explain it to him.

Mr. President, you have screwed with the finest healthcare system in the world which by the way, totals one sixth of our economy, on the utopian premise that the government can take on the endeavor better than the people. What you don't know, is WE know that it isn't about insuring the uninsured that drives this. It's just another devious plot to redistribute wealth and take another giant step toward socialism under the guise of "compassion." And clearly, since no one has explained to you that whenever the government gets involved on a massive scale in the private sector,(which I might remind you was not the original intent of the founders and as constitutional lawyer you should know that), chaos, red tape and never ending screw-ups abound.
What you have designed by hook and by crook is this: In order to insure the uninsured, you first had to un-insure the insured. Next you required the newly un-insured to be re-insured. So, to re-insure the newly un-insured, they were then required to pay extra charges to be re-insured and those extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured you feigned being worried about, can be insured for free which in reality means their neighbors are paying for them. And all of that eye-crossing mess would have been unnecessary had you spent the last 5 years trying to build a robust and dynamic economy, put the power back into the hands of the people, stop taxing us into oblivion and kindly get out of the way. And as a footnote, Mr. President, finding ourselves with 4-5-6-7 million >more< people on the government giveaway program in my view, is nothing for America be proud of.
I hope this helps clears up what "you don't get."

Ah, good afternoon to one of Obama's remaining faithful.
And he did move on to more "fruitful" discussions. Like a little dictator, he declared the debate on Obamacare "over" (which it most certainly is not) and he's now is moving on to the fabulously fascinating topic of minimum wage hikes which is nothing more than a transfer of wealth from low wage earners to other low wage earners. BUT? It helps keep the low information voter under the false impression he's helping the little guy.

Here, meet one of those low info voters.

Do you really believe the POTUS is being honest here? or really thinks people are against it because people are mad because other people are getting health care?

I sure as hell hope he isnt that disillusioned, and doesnt know why people are against this bill
