Swell. A slogan on a plaque proves that Harry Truman took full responsibility for everything.
You don't get it, DP. No President has ever been assigned so much blame for EVERYTHING like Obama has. It's hatred in action, nothing more.
No President has ever been held responsible for so much that isn't even his doing, and you know it. But little children like to assign blame when they have nothing else.
Again. I voted for Obama both times. I know he has been blamed for things that happened before he was swore in as president. That doesn't excuse your blind loyalty to a program that you don't even understand. Obamacare aka ACA has a lot of good things that will help to lower the cost of health care in the US. I simply disagree with penalizing individuals for not having health insurance for a whole year before penalizing employers for not providing health insurance to their employees.

Why do I disagree with it? Because people without jobs will be able to get free health insurance for that whole year that the people who work will be getting fined for not having health insurance that they cannot afford to pay for and employers are not required to provide yet.

Simple as that. Not republican, not democrat just plain common sense.

The Romneys re-emerged Friday, making an appearance on Rachael Ray's show, where Ann Romney demonstrated a favorite family recipe: sweet pork burritos.

"This is why Mitt likes it," Ann Romney said, as she loaded two cups of sugar – one brown and one white – into a blender, adding two cans of cherry cola to the slow-cooker pork recipe as well.

Well bully for you.
Which personality is this now?
It's the same personality that I always have. I disagreed with your fagot friend who is always disagreeable even on his best days and I refused to tone it down. You and the rest of your pack of buddies began belittling my stance on the issue and changed the subject from the topic we were discussing and made it all about me.

It was y'all that started it and it's y'all that can't let it go. You refuse to listen to the facts at hand and digress into insults and name calling.

It has been an eye opening experience for me and I don't believe I can look upon any of y'all in the same positive light ever again.

Right Wing Conservatives, I Have Noticed their disdain for liberalism. I’m liberal as hey are not. So lets take a simple look at what I represent and what they represent.
Liberal adj
1. broad-minded: tolerant of different views and standards of behavior in others
2. progressive politically or socially: favoring gradual reform, especially political reforms that extend democracy, distribute wealth more evenly, and protect the personal freedom of the individual
3. generous: freely giving money, time, or some other asset
My great-aunt was liberal in her bequests.

4. generous in quantity: large in size or amount
a liberal helping

5. not literal: not limited to the literal meaning in translation or interpretation
a liberal interpretation of the rules

6. culturally oriented: concerned with general cultural matters and broadening of the mind rather than professional or technical study
a liberal education

7. of political liberalism: relating to a political ideology of liberalism

n (plural lib·er·als)
liberal person: somebody who favors tolerance or open-mindedness

[14th century. Via French < Latin liberalis < liber "free"]

Word Key: Synonyms

See generous.

Now to define the right wing conservative state of existence we just have to access the acronyms of these definitions. For example “Broad Minded” acronym “Closed Minded”
“ tolerant of different views and standards of behavior in others” acronym; Intolerant of the views of others and standards of behavior in others.
Sure sign of one who walks backwards. Paranoia sets in with the Right Wing Conservatives.

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” Winston Churchill. LOL sounds like a liberal…

Obamacare Is Another Private Sector Rip-Off Of Americans
http://www.opednews.com/articles/Obamacare-Is...
The government of the "world's only superpower," the "exceptional," the "indispensable" country, claims to know what is best for Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Mali, Russia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, China, indeed for the entire world. However, the "indispensable" country cannot even govern itself, much less the world over which the "superpower" desires hegemony. The government of the "world's only superpower" has shut itself down.

Ted Cruzy, Boy if he don’t sound like a true republican, when questioned on what his game plan was for this shutdown??? I didn’t do it, he did , she did, they did, the devil made me do it, etc., etc, Similar to some religious zealots that cry, its the USA devil that is causing this or that…
How are the Tea pirates doing? Not to good…
Statehouse to the nations capitol republicans are all a flutter. Calling out to their shepherds where forth dost thy lead us? That one small bloc of Ideoloques that has gone astray is now the tail that wags the republican dog. Exposing their total lack of leadership capabilities. LOL imagine such a scurvy crew of lost sheep running the nation? Oh wait, they did arrange for us to enjoy our 1929 and 2008 moments of greatness. No doubt they can do it one more time. After all third time is a charm.
Senator Roy Blunt,{R} Missouri the capital of republican red necks chides his fellow republicans; “Fighting with the president is one thing, Fighting with the president and losing is another thing. When you’re in the minority you need to look really hard to find the fights you can win.”
Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee“. This is a huge distraction, Instead of that being the conversation, we’re talking about the government shutdown, and the average citizen can’t help but say the Republican Congress isn’t helping.” DUH do you think?
Dave Reichert {R} Washington representative, Senate Republicans — Dan Coats of Indiana, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire — assailed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who has led the movement to block funding for the health law. When asked just where and what is his strategy for leading the republicans into this fiasco, he replies yuk, yuk I have none.
Ms. Ayotte including Mr. Johnson, Mr. Coats and even Mitch McConnell, the minority leader — joined in the criticism of Mr. Cruz.
“It just started a lynch mob,” said a senator who was present.
Despite the uproar, Mr. Cruz did not offer a plan for how his party could prevail in the shutdown battle.
A voice in the republican wilderness can be heard, its wee little Johnny, turn the heard its headed for a cliff. The black hearted sheep have led them astray. Oh dear, oh dear what ever should we do?? The chasm will swallow them up..

Could it be republicans enjoy the shutdown? Longer the shut down the USA credit goes down> Interest Rates go up on the debt> greater cash flow to the coffers of the 1%. Excellent movie at a theater near you.

Oh how my heart breaks for you. You've been disillusioned by Topix.

YOU made it all about YOU when you started your little masquerade game of deception just to feed your insatiable need for attention and validation.

But calling Jax my "fagot friend" is showing your true colors, punk.

Now go cry your river to someone who cares about your petty insecurities. You started all this crap. No one turned on you until you morphed into the azzhole you apparently are.

And?... What? I'm still me! I don't agree with tea party philosophy or tea party mentality. I voted for Obama. Both times! I also supported much of what he said and some of the things he did during his first term. Now that he has no more elections to worry about he is talking a different tune and doing stupid things that I do not support. Would I go back and vote for McCain? NO! McCain would have stayed on the path Bush/Cheney put us on. Would I go back and vote for Romney? NO! Romney was fake as his tan.
What I will do is speak out against policies that I disagree with regardless of the political party that proposes them.
I heard a snippet on the radio driving home this morning that they are calling off all govt furloughs for civilian employees.

And here again! You just come to topix to trash talk and insult people. You interrupt peoples conversations causing detours from the topic being discussed to bring attention to yourself. When people give you attention, you become hateful and vulgar. You bait people into talking to you by using their name in replies to other posters like you did in the post I'm replying to. You are a troll Rose. You cannot help yourself. Maybe you don't see it but everyone else can. You are pathetic Rose. You and Gaylord are the worst of the worst. I'm only sorry that I didn't see it sooner.

YOU were the one who was being deceitful. People would have been perfectly willing to discuss issues with you in a rational and civil manner. It was YOU who started with gay bashing, then accusing me of working in a "massage parlor" and implying illicit behavior.

That makes you no better, no different than the vulgar trolls like "Patrick." No one had offended you personally.

You created the drama, so don't complain when you get the attention you garnered from it.

Maybe you should just apologize, start with a clean slate and be honest about your views in the future instead of playing con games.

What I hear is that the Republican House sent a bill to the Democrats in the Senate that will pay all us furloughed employees for the lost wages caused by the democrat senate refusing to compromise ans sign the CR. Of course that money won't get to us until after they pass the CR and reopen the government.

Personally, I blame Obama and the Democrats in the Sentate for this whole fiasco for failing to negotiate a compromise before shutting the government down. The Republican house proved willing to negotiate a compromise but the Democrat Senate folded their arms, dug in their heels and refused to talk about it and Obama just sat there encouraging the showdown with his threat of a veto.

Joseph the Dog was Chained to a Tree for Four Years
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/04/jose...

Joseph the German Shepherd was clinging to life when authorities rescued him. He was emaciated and dehydrated, his skin was covered with infection, and he had heart worms. Police say his owner left him chained to a tree for four straight years.

The poor pooch -- whose name was changed from Toby by the folks at Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Ohio -- is getting better. He's currently undergoing veterinary rehabilitation.

Joseph's former owner, Jeremy Shane Temple, faces animal cruelty charges.

"It's just hard, really, seeing a dog that skinny," Kassie Jadin, the facilities manager at PAWS, told HuffPost Crime. "It's just so pathetic all around. There aren't enough words to explain how sad it is."

You can donate to help Jseph and other dogs, or apply to adopt him - see info at story link.

I bet these guys believe that they will get their Obamacare insurance card and be able to walk into any medical clinic or doctors office and be seen right away. They also believe that the Obamacare insurance is going to pay for everything and they won't need to pay anything. No Copay, no deductibles, no non-covered expenses and get their medicine for free.
They are going to get a shocking wake up call the first time they try to use it. Especially those who buy the cheapest plan.
Oh well! Que Sera sera! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =hqwIifgs7KUXX
Obamacare will not and can not work. The Democrats know this. They are hoping most Americans are too dumb to figure this out until after the 2014 elections. If the Democrats are successful at taking back the house, they'll then bring back single-payer/government controlled healthcare. With this type of healthcare will come a multitude of new taxes. Look for a VAT to be included amongst them. Also look for a tax on all 401Ks and IRAs.
