markhighwater/willygarr/canook,

I'm still waiting for math class.

If the following is true, I was ten when you started your tour in Vietnam. Do you honestly expect any of us to believe you talk like this, a person of your age and hopefully wisdom. If I was ten then you would have to be almost 80 now. It's hard to deceive for that long.

Started tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam..My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS {training} is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs...Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV... Medals: Purple Heart

PJ she is an independent and works for herself. She is a USA Contributor, Daily Beast Columnist, and a Fox New Contributor. She analyzes politics on Fox. Why should Fox pay for her insurance?

So if it's true as some have said, that those who do not have insurance are "costing" those that do, then it follows that all of us who have been MANDATED to buy insurance are "helping" these young women with their birth control choices, regardless of what all of us think of the practices as "preventative medicine" or something else.

Personally, I don't believe that those that pay their own medical expenses without insurance coverage are costing those who have insurance, but I digress.

Of course, even if contraceptive devices are included in their coverage aka insurance aka premiums paid for policy, this is from forbes...

"Nobody is, in any way, obligated to acquire or use contraceptive devices. The regulation applies only to what insurance companies must offer-not to who must take advantage of the benefit."

From thinkprogress . org, 12-11-13...

"(Guttmacher Institute) researchers surveyed data from women between the ages of 18 and 39, comparing the co-pays they paid for their birth control method before and after Obamacare’s contraceptive coverage requirement took effect for most insurance plans. Between those two time periods, they saw a sharp increase in the number of women who had no out-of-pocket costs for their birth control pills, jumping from just 15 percent to 40 percent."

"Come 2014, it will be the Republicans who want to deny 40 million people a chance to not only get, but be better insured..."

So all those senior citizens will be thankful for contraception/maternity coverage?

Today is Friday the 13th.

Every time I return from a trip, I think to myself, As Tom Hanks said in the movie, Money Pit, And I say "Home Crap Home"

The dead only know one thing, It's better to be alive.

Vote NO, Again and Again.

"What Minot really needs is a newspaper that accomodates the democratic audience that is fastly gaining a majority in ND..."

Veritas, you need a new job, that of publisher of the "No Rooting News" based in Minot, staffed only by Democrats, sharing only Democrat opinions, and, of course, subscribed to only by Democrats.

"..the ACA hasn't taken affect yet..."

This is incorrect, rajj. After the ACA was passed, there were tons of mandates to be implemented before 2014, some immediately.

Why did the insurance companies adjust their now non-existent policies to match the legislation before 2014? Because they were mandated to.

I've included this ACA timetable before, but I'll reference again, just in time for the holidays.

You know, one could just as easily assign a cause/effect relationship to that, too. All of that inaction has made people willing to invest and take risk again...because they know nobody's going to do anything to them.

Yep, a booming economy? In spite of the Republicans. No farm bill, no jobs bill, no immigration bill, no budget bill and lots of other "no bills". Not even a debate in the house so how can you expect a vote. Republican Obstructionism.... But, we do have the Republican sequester and the threat of another shutdown.

I hadn't looked at this thread since about midday yesterday. Wow, did it cover a lot of topics in my absence. Never thought a topic about ammo would somehow end up on the school bond and health insurance. Wild.

Mandella's funeral is today. Oh, and before you blabber the talking points on shaking hands, you better check the Republican in the past and who they shook hands with? But, it is the talking points and you follow them to the letter.

if you really think the government is buying up all the ammo, then you're either delusional, uneducated, or extremely gullible. All you crazies have been screaming that the sky is going to fall for the last 5 years, and what has happened? A booming economy, a more robust foreign policy, a shrinking deficit, and zero attempts by any government entity to come after your guns or - and I can't believe I even have to write this - buy up all the ammo. And a local 'news'paper publishing questions like this is quite despicable. MDN: you need to raise your standards, or perhaps even develop some.

The government is behind the shortage, it is only because of their policies that have caused the public to buy more ammunition than they normally would have. If the government was behind the shortage, someone from the manufacturing end would talk and blame the shortage on the government. So the answer is Yes and No.

"We’re causing the shortage"

While true, you need to dig deeper into the cause/effect dynamic at work instead of ending your analysis with such glaring omission. You know there's more to it. After all, who/what is creating the "unknown" that drives the paranoia? Your inability to look more deeply is telling.

"Straight out of Republican canidate steve Forbes magazine"

Strange, because Forbes Magazine is widely considered to be a more than legitimate media outlet; the accusations that FM is just a partisan hack rag are virtually unheard of.

Unless, I suppose, it prints something that invalidates something that someone has already decided is true.
