Fear must rule the lives of some people. Any aspect of life includes risk: marriage, education, public restrooms, walking across the street, driving, eating, family heredity...not just healthcare needs.

I "feel" I shouldn't be forced to fear like some people do, but the Democrats in Congress and President Obama are "feeling" for me, FORCING me to buy something (commerce clause argument) or be taxed (Judge Roberts' argument) if I don't buy something.

All for the sake of fear. Nice how that works.

Risking the fine is nothing. This year, the fine is 1% of your AGI. What you are really risking is that if you get sick or have an accident this you, you will have to pay medical costs which cannot be known ahead of time. You will pay 1% of your income in tax and 100% of the medical costs you accrue.

"Isn't it an all-or-nothing thing against Faux News with libs?"

No! But it has similar undertones like the word lib.....

Then why the continued slams against the network Chris Wallace works for?

Isn't it an all-or-nothing thing against Faux News with libs?

Here's an idea: refer to "Chris Wallace" as the source and just leave out where he works. Scot-free!

"C'mon, Justaman, wasn't it you that referred to Faux News when it had a story you agreed with? Just last week?"

C'mon little "Kettle".....Chris Wallace has been around for 30+ yrs and I've enjoyed his work for the entire time.....You don't see that grin/angst on his face when his employer makes him do things he doesn't believe because you're a bonafide believer with calloused knees.....

You're sounding more & more like Pa "Kettle".....Interesting!

You can keep your family doctor. Premiums will be lowered by $2500. If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan. It's just like shopping at Amazon. I knew nothing about "Fast and Furious" gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels. I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups. I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi. I have never known my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and that was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago. And, I have never lived with that uncle. He finally admitted (12-05-2013) that he DID know his uncle and that he DID live with him.

And the biggest one of all:

"I, Barrack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."

JustaGarr, step out of you computer room for a change to see what your messiah has done to this country...but lies are you libs forte.

I will have the most transparent administration in history. The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs. I am focused like a laser on creating jobs. The IRS is not targeting anyone. It was a spontaneous riot about a movie. If I had a son. I will put an end to the type of politics that "breeds division, conflict and cynicism". You didn't build that! I will restore trust in Government. The Cambridge cops acted stupidly. The public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk It's not my red line - it is the world's red line. Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration. We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest. I am not spying on American citizens. Obama Care will be good for America.

Oh mom of three: have you actually talked to these people about their insurance? Have you actually looked at these plans just out of curiosity? Just to see what you can get, and what it costs? I'm guessing no, educated guess! Take a peak, don't worry you can't possibly pay for it! As far as your families small businesses, nuts don't fall from the tree, if they're buying their employees obamacare, his business is doomed!!!! That's why Obama is delaying all these mandates for people, they won't make it!!! Bye bye small business USA!!!

"Larry, good assessment as most here have had that figured out for a long time. Seems like MDN is oblivious to his tactic and or can't do anything to stop it.

I've been telling the Editor for some time to fix this site or scrap it. Maybe if more people wrote them it would help."

I love how these fright wingers think dissent is unpatriotic. What a bunch of babies. WHaaa! WHaaaaa!

I want this to be a right wing echo chamber!

LarryD sounds like another alias for Freedomrings.

LarryD is right. My website is a hate website. It is filled with the terrible things Republicans have done to this country and the American citizens.

Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place. Landslide says the site is filled with swastikas, much like SCIENCELIAR used to say. The only swastika is a video of a right wing rally. Go see it for yourself.

As far as being a paid blogger?

LOL!!!!!!!

I do this for FREE!!!!!

Even though I say "polls schmolls," I thought I'd post this newest one for those saying how popular Obamacare is.

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat unfavorable opinion of the health care law, with 43% who view it Very Unfavorably. Just 39% have a favorable view of the law, including 16% with a Very Favorable one."

I already had coverage, but self-employed family members now have insurance. They are healthy. They are working. They are paying! They are pleased and I am pleased for them. One has a small business in which he can now offer insurance to his employees!

I compared one statement of Bush to Clinton, then your husband? brother? father? started in with the Obama quotes. Your husband? brother? father? was clearly ill prepared for the 50 Bushisms that were presented. Why don't you let your husband? brother? father? fend for himself?

And thanks again, billgrr, for proving how absolutely hyperpartisan you are about snafus, but only when it concerns a Republican.
