A little Rule 5 is good for the heart...
You are welcome.
A new Fox News poll says that independents support the repeal of Obamacare by a whopping 40-point margin (65 to 25 percent). That’s more than twice the margin by which Ronald Reagan beat Walter Mondale, or Franklin Roosevelt beat Herbert Hoover.
There is always hope I guess...Overall, the poll says that respondents favor repeal by a margin of 13 points (53 to 40 percent). But the only thing keeping that double-digit margin from being even higher is the fact that about seven in ten Democratic respondents say they continue to stand by the “comprehensive” overhaul of American medicine — which even President Obama now admits won’t be ready to be implemented on schedule. Hence his unilateral and unconstitutional delay of parts of it — a move that independents, by a 22-point margin (55 to 33 percent), think is “unacceptable.”
Senate Republicans, including two members of the leadership, are coalescing around a proposal to block any government funding resolution that includes money for the implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act.
But such a move is a nonstarter for President Obama and congressional Democrats. Republicans have tried this maneuver in Obama’s first term, only to back off later to the chagrin of Tea Party leaders.Do not fund this creature or pay the price...
“Any Republican who votes to give Obama a single penny to implement ObamaCare is part of the problem and should be defeated. Any Republican who votes to fund ObamaCare should have a primary challenger,” said Matt Hoskins, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, a fundraising group that supports conservative Republican challengers.A clear choice. Be a part of the problem or part of the solution. Conservative voters are watching.
Zero to 100 begins with an interview with Lakey’s mother. When she was pregnant with Lakey, doctors told her that it appeared her baby had Down syndrome. They could do more tests, they suggested, to make sure. You may want to abort. No, her mother replied. I don’t care, no more tests. I love this baby. That’s it: the topic is never mentioned again in the documentary, although Lakey’s and her family’s Christian beliefs do crop up, inconspicuously, a few times. But for me, the beginning gave the whole film a pleasantly subversive air: a glamorous life, to be sure, but one that began with an act of faith.God is alive and well and working in someones life everyday!
Grace: "What I think made a difference; when that 911 tape first came out -- and everybody get read, this is graphic language -- when it first came out that Zimmerman had said "f**king coon" on the 911 call.. I mean to me, that was open and shut that that showed ill-will and hatred."
That would be a very insightful comment were it not for the fact that Zimmerman did not say "f**king coon," and it seem impossible to believe that Grace doesn't know this.
Apparently, the left-wing media site Mediaite is also unaware of the fact that Zimmerman did not say "f**king coon." In their coverage of the Grace's statement, they make no mention of the fact that Grace's claim is factually incorrect or that CNN was forced to walk the claim back.I despise the media.
I assume this means that the case will go to the jury on Thursday. On paper, it shapes up as an easy win for the defense, but you never know. A lot depends on what preconceptions the jurors brought to the case, on whether they have obeyed the court’s repeated injunctions to avoid press coverage of the trial, and on whether they are willing and able to decide the case based on the evidence that was presented in court, as opposed to making some kind of social or political statement. In general, my confidence in jurors is high, and I think they will do their duty. I do wish, however, that there were 12 jurors rather than six.Those preconceptions and avoiding the stunning media bias.
There's an even more pressing reason why the would-be rioters should reconsider. George Zimmerman isn't the only "crazy-ass cracker" with a gun.
The idea that selectively enforcing one provision of the law could “solve” all the problems inherent in Obamacare is absurd on its face. In fact, the Administration’s position raises more questions than it answers:
It is hard to understate the impact of today’s devastating admission from the Administration that, after three years, it still cannot implement Obamacare without strangling businesses in red tape and destroying American jobs. That said, it is still not too late for Congress to do the right thing, and refuse to fund what the Administration has now—finally—admitted is a job-killing train wreck.Just me, but I see a bunch of small business's (those with more than 50 employees) dumping their coverage completely and letting the Government pick up the tab. From a business sense, who can blame them?
“It now appears clear that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, lied under oath to Congress and the American people,” Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted.
“Perjury is a serious crime ... [and] Clapper should resign immediately,” he said.Does an apology erase perjury? Only in Obamaland!
I don’t know if Members of Congress will be hearing about it in town hall gatherings and other meetings back home over the Fourth of July recess, but the rolling thunder of the approaching ObamaCare train can be heard in the distance. Smart Democrats are beginning to get frantic about the need to suppress the confusion and hide the cost of ObamaCare between now and the 2014 midterm elections. We are just three months away from the October 1st enrollment start date and so far, nothing about the ObamaCare implementation process should be politically encouraging for Democrats. In fact, the more people learn about ObamaCare, the more frightened they become.
Right now, small businesses across America are making the final determinations on how to reduce the working hours of their employees so fewer employees qualify for the mandated, employer-provided health insurance. Employers are also deciding whether it makes more economic sense to pay a fine to the government or pay for healthcare benefits for their employees. What this means is that hundreds of thousands – and perhaps even millions – of Americans will learn that they are being dismissed from their employer’s healthcare coverage.
The healthcare pink slips will start raining down in late summer and early fall. This will push people into the healthcare exchanges, where, in some cases, people will be writing health insurance checks for the first time. And in many cases, people will be facing increased health insurance costs, particularly if they are young and healthy. The negative effects on personal income and the overall economy will be undeniable. Sometime next year, before the elections, the penalties associated with not having or providing health insurance will begin to pour in. Will the fines come in the mail? Will you be able to appeal? What happens if someone doesn’t pay? No one knows. Or, no one who knows is talking. The consequences of ObamaCare are being hidden.The damage from this bill will be catastrophic. Obama and his minions are hell bent on destroying America.
