THIS IS IRONIC. I VOTED NO ON PROP 30. UNFORTUNATELY THE SALES PITCH WAS THAT IT WOULD RAISE TAXES TO AVERT LAYOFFS OF TEACHERS & OTHER LAUDS EMPLOYEES.

WELL.. THE LAUSD IS LAYING OFF PEOPLE ANYWAYS.

LOOKS LIKE THE LAUSD SUCKERED ANGELENOS INTO PAYING MORE TAXES FOR NO REASON.

THIS IS WHY I ALWAYS VOTE NO ON TAX HIKES BY THE LAUSD.. THEY'RE CORRUPT.

US Government Spent $2.2 Billion on Obamaphones in 2012

The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven’t proved they are eligible to receive them.

The Lifeline program—begun in 1984 to ensure that poor people aren’t cut off from jobs, families and emergency services—is funded by charges that appear on the monthly bills of every landline and wireless-phone customer. Payouts under the program have shot up from $819 million in 2008, as more wireless carriers have persuaded regulators to let them offer the service.

Suspecting that many of the new subscribers were ineligible, the Federal Communications Commission tightened the rules last year and required carriers to verify that existing subscribers were eligible. The agency estimated 15% of users would be weeded out, but far more were dropped.

I have not been to the doctors in like a year so help me out here Eagle... what's the difference in a standard dr visit?
It used to be when seeing a doc they did everything in one visit.. Now (or here in ocala) they schedule 2 or 3 appointments.. If you needed blood work they would run the test and call/email the results.. Now they have to have another office visit to tell you the results.. Its great for them they can charge for the extra office visit's.. It really sucks for the patient having to take the time and gas going there.. And its been getting worse not better the docs figured out a way to work the system.. When you need a script refilled another trip to the doc.. ACA didn't really lower the cost if you think about it.. JMO..

Massachusetts lawmakers are fuming over a new government website that promotes welfare and EBT benefits to immigrants.

*****

All of this comes on the heels of Monday's announcement from Governor Deval Patrick that illegal immigrants will now qualify for in state tuition in Massachusetts.

The controversy stems from a website run by the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. citizenship and immigration services described as a welcome package.

The website USA.gov informs visitors that depending upon on your immigration status, length of time in the U.S., and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs.

Some local government officials say all it does is encourage immigrants to come to the U.S. to get free public assistance.

The site explains how to access benefits, including food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, and Supplemental Security Income.

Actually illegal aliens have many protections of the US government therefore that nullifies your claim that they're outlaws.
Outlaw:•[historical} a person deprived of the benefit and protection of the law.
By all rights, we don't have to afford them any legal rights, they are not citizens, they have violated our borders and they have violated the laws of their country by breaking treaties with the US.
See you found the definition for an outlaw.

OK... I see what you mean. Seems like the doctors are finding different ways to charge more.

I have an 85 yr old grandmother, she had a mild heart attack & had angioplasty & a stint placed in one coronary artery. She's OK now but I take her to the Dr's visits once every few months. Due to the blood thinners she takes as well as her cholesterol being high, she also has her blood taken. Well we have to goto the local hospital for that and then when the results are in... we goto the doctor office for the results.

She's on med-cal.

What Is Politics?
A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"
Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."
The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."
The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."

White flight

White flight is a term that originated in the United States, starting in the mid-20th century, and applied to the large-scale migration of whites of various European ancestries from racially mixed urban regions to more racially homogeneous suburban or exurban regions.

Well I tell you what...if you really think that you don't have to afford an illegal alien any rights becuase they're not citizens then go and assault an illegal alien in front of a police officer and let me know how that works out for you.

Rancher loses appeal for assault claims from illegal immigrants

TUCSON - A Cochise County rancher found liable on eight civil claims after he allegedly held a group of illegal immigrant at gunpoint and threatened them has been denied an appeal to overturn the verdicts against him.

Roger Barnett, 66, was ordered to pay more than $70,000 in damages in February 2009, after a jury found him guilty of four counts of assault against illegal immigrants - he allegedly pointed his gun at them, causing them "severe emotional distress," the jury found.

In 2004, Barnett came upon a group of 16 illegal immigrants - they claim he unlawfully detained them at gunpoint and threatened them. Barnett's defense lawyer says that he did so out of self-defense.

"The testimony showed Roger had been told by federal agents his life was in danger from the drug cartels," said his attorney, David Hardy. "He's outnumbered 20-to-1 in the desert, he doesn't know if they're smugglers or not."

In the rejection of his appeal, the three 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judges argued that because Barnett admitted that no one in the group was armed, a self-defense claim could not be considered.

"(Barnett) himself conceded on the stand, however, that none of the plaintiffs were armed or threatened him in any other way," the appellate judges wrote. That, they said, makes any claim of self-defense unwarranted.

“Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.

It's not the same thing and I've clearly outlined the differences in an attempt to help you understand.
Apparently you do "need" something since you felt the need to inquire what you did. Whether it be a "dissertation" or a carefully worded answer tailored to help you understand, I would think would be irrelevant. You came to me with your, question. I answered it.
If you feel condescended to, or inferior, that's really not my problem as it is not my intent to make you feel this way. So in fact, you don't "understand" and ARE ignorant on this matter.
What can I say? Don't ask the question, if you don't want the answer. lol
I can assure you I do not feel the least bit "inferior" or "ignorant" and as I said, I totally "understand" your intent.

A one or two sentence response would have sufficed. Dissertations are NOT needed.
