My bad,

most least is a double superlative, I'm surprised someone hasn't called me on it.

Willgarr/canook,

You don't associate me with Donnamay or her mother any more. I have to ask why? As for people that say N.D. is the most least visited state that's ok. I've been to the four corners of this nation and more. Can anyone disagree with me that driving down a gravel road and enjoying North Dakota is a pleasant experience.

"The Chisago County Republican Party is very sorry that something so clearly improper (either intended or in poor taste) ever made it to our page," part of the apology read.

"The apology, signed by the Chisago County Republican Party executive committee, also said the organization could not pinpoint the person responsible because "a large number" had administrative rights to the page.

"Those rights, which allow pictures and updates to be posted, were revoked by the committee until the person responsible could be found, the statement said."

According to willgrr, it only takes one bonehead to taint an entire village.

So be it. Is Obamacare working out fine for everyone? Do you get to keep your insurance AND your doctor if you like them? No? And why is that? A Democrat told you that you could, and it's not turning out that way? Well, that's too bad...

ND is the LEAST VISITED STATE in the entire nation...

and some people prefer the peace and quiet that used to bring.

Guess what? They're not visiting to see the Badlands or the Enchanted Highway. They're here to work.

Even if this comment about your wife is tongue-in-cheek...

"BTW, Missy1, my wife's frying pan is busy fixing my breakfast. She's been trained properly..."

it still stinks.

AS IF a husband can't be trained to use the frying pan himself to make breakfast for his sweetie snoo****.

PJinfinity: "It's not the "spelling police." It's called the English language. The fact you're too stupid or lazy to learn it is not an Obama conspiracy."

I usually don't have a problem with spelling. I made a mistake, then posted a slight joke while correcting it (OCD of me, I know).

Now the perpetual ray of sunshine said it's a fact that I'm "too stupid or lazy to learn" the English language.

Hating on NoDaks of any persuasion (other than his own) seems to be PJinfinity's favorite hobby. Is that better than origami? Model airplanes? Stamps? No one knows but he.

Veritas, nice to see you can still c/p with the best of them.

Yeah, I had c/p'd that article you were slicing & dicing to make your interesting stir-fry. Too bad it wasn't my own words, which might have been too vanilla for the mixture you prepared for display.

Is there a chef in the house?

"The fact that Obamacare does nothing to rein in costs while providing an open-ended insurance subsidy may be good news for hospitals and insurance companies..."

Can you dispute this, Legend?

Pot calling kettle fushsia, or something like that.

RR, your misogyny against Missy is showing. Again.

Any "lippy" woman must be shown the error of her ways, right?

Now what was PJ's word? One of his favorites? Was it Neanderthal? Yeah, that might just do.

I agree that it shows a lack of respect not to say "President Obama" when referring to the current officeholder.

And it's Vice-President Biden, Sen. Reid, Rep. Pelosi, Sen. Heitkamp, Sen. Hoeven and Rep. Cramer, if anyone wanted to know.

cont... "Since the biggest factor driving health care costs higher in the first place has been the over use of insurance that results from government-provided tax incentives, and the lack of cost accountability that results from a third-party payer system, Obamacare will bend the cost curve even higher. The fact that Obamacare does nothing to rein in costs while providing an open-ended insurance subsidy may be good news for hospitals and insurance companies, but it's bad news for taxpayers, on whom this increased burden will ultimately fall."

"It is also ironic that high-deductible, catastrophic plans are precisely what young people should be buying in the first place. They are inexpensive because they provide coverage for unlikely, but expensive, events. Routine care is best paid for out-of-pocket by value conscious consumers. But Obamacare outlaws these plans, in favor of what amounts to prepaid medical treatment that shifts the cost of services to taxpayers. In such a system, patients have no incentive to contain costs..."

"...the reason the ACA will succeed is because our medical industry is in dire need of repair. too many leeches in the business need to be rooted out. the dem in me says it is far worse to get a big salary for doing little that is productive in society, or simply by shafting others; than it is to receive food stamps."

Rugby, is that health care you have as a gift of having that military career? If so....good for you, the more gifts we can get from government the better.....

If only all of us could get those gifts, and get the 'rich' to pay....what a utopia that would be.

if you have a trash health ins. policy and like it--if you need to ask you would not understand. some people would buy a car even if consumer reports gave every rating element on it a black circle. Frontline reported that if your investment mutual fund charges 2%, that 2% reduces your earnings by 2/3rds--therefore the fund only earns 3% yet people do it every day and complain about a risk free 1% CD.
