Bravo. Me too.

Notice how I didn't get an answer on the health care issue regarding abuse of the system by the uninsured. It doesn't change a thing. Now we see the layoffs and the added prices to everything. They were right, elections have consequences, and so do ill advised poor thought out policies.

Fully agree that elections have consequences that will be magnified by their inability to have realized the magnitude of the endeavor they have embarked on.

There was commentary this evening saying, in a nut shell, that the government will never be able to meet it's self-imposed schedule for implementation of the ACA if for no other reason other than the rules are still not written and they have passed the time required to "get er done"

This is going to be a cluster-fuck of epic proportions.

One that respects and honors individual sovereignty more than it does its own power and influence, for starters.
Teddy was a progressive!
Lincoln was the patron saint against "states rights"...
You see, you're "core principles" aren't very core, they are all over the map.
And once again you present a mythical "founders" view. The founders themselves argued these principles.

Don't worry, they have spent plenty of time on Benghazi and still are. It is to the point now where there is no real meat left to the story. Just more conspiracy theory nutcase stuff. You guys are still hoping for something nefarious. Sorry, sometimes the facts are just the facts. Putting a Snidley Whiplash mustache on it and tieing Nell to the train tracks doesn't make it more than it is.

Actually, there has been a lot of prosecutions in the past few years of Medicare fraud. One of the main points of the ACA is to have most people covered that prevents unpaid "huge medical bills". So the problem is solved by prevention. Is it 100%? No, but a big step in the right direction.

Talking

Hillary Clinton vs. God

Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore were in an airplane that crashed. They're up in heaven, and God's sitting on the great white throne. God addresses Al first.

"Al, what do you believe in?"

Al replies, "Well, I believe that the combustion engine is evil and that we need to save the world from CFCs and that if any more freon is used, the whole earth will become a greenhouse and we'll all die."

God thinks for a second and says "Okay, I can live with that. Come and sit at my left."

God then addresses Bill. "Bill, what do you believe in?"

Bill replies, "Well, I believe in power to the people. I think people should be able to make their own choices about things and that no one should ever be able to tell someone else what to do. I also believe in feeling people's pain."

God thinks for a second and says "Okay, that sounds good. Come and sit at my right."

God then address Hillary. "Hillary, what do you believe in?"

"I believe you're in my chair."

Default If I was religious I would call this blasphemy.

But since I am not I will call it a bad joke that is going to backfire and bite a whole country in the ass.

HG, I believe that the following response is worth posting here because so many will watch the video but not read the comments. That's better than the video and it pretty much says it all.

"Congratulations to the Democrats and Young People! You now own it and you can't blame Bush.
The next terrorist attack you own it.
Can't get a job after graduation, you own it.
Sky rocketing energy prices due to Obama's EPA shutting down the energy producing states, you own it.
A nuclear Iran, you own it.
Bowing to Russia, you own it.
Another severe recession, you own it.
A volatile border with Mexico, you own it.
Trouble getting good health care, you own it.
Higher health insurance costs and health care costs, you own it.
No budget, you own it.
Our allies mistrust, you own it.
Another trillion of debt, you own it.
More Benghazi situations, you own it.
No one willing to join the military, you own it.
Trouble getting a loan to buy a home, you own it.
More dependency on food stamps, you
own it.
Trouble finding good employment, you own it.
Several part time jobs instead of a good job, you own it.
A World Government, you own it.
The UN governing the United States instead of ourselves, you own it.
A Senate that will not bring any legislation to the table even if it is "Dead on Arrival", you own it.
China controlling our world trade trampling all over us, you own it.
Loss of our freedoms as we have known it in the past, you own it.
A dictatorship instead of a democracy that follows the Constitution, you own it.
Less take home pay and higher living costs, you own it.
Driving a car that looks like a toy, you own it.
More government corruption and lies, you own it.
More toleration of extreme and fanatical Islamists, you own it.
Terrorist attacks called work place incidents, you own it.
Your revenge instead of love of country, you own it.
President
George Bush is out of it now, and
there is not another good man for you to vilify and lie about. In a way
I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was
impossible to clean up this mess you voted for. Have a good day. God
bless the United States! God is our hope now.

George Bush and Sex

Much has already been published about the sexual preferences and notorious behavior of former President Clinton.

However, little has been reported on the sexual practices of the current Commander-in-Chief. It has recently been learned that the President and Mrs. Bush only make love with Laura Bush on top since George W. Bush can only f**k up.
