“Who hired that IT company? OR should I ask, Who's friends with the Senior Vice President of that IT company? Let's see, there was a "no-bid" $678 million contract to build the Obamacare enrollment website. AND, the result was a Canadian company being hired when U.S. companies need employment. Oh well, the U.S. has President Barack Obama at the helm so we can do without that measly $678 Mill in this country. Toni Townes-Whitley... yes that's her name. She's the Sr. VP. Now who is she friends with? Just who in the world was her classmate at Princeton? Who would she know with enuf clout to get her company a contract, that BIG, without even bidding?”

“So am I to believe that "inner city" citizens from all of the larger cities in the U.S. never made racial or hate filled remarks about white presidents or white politicians from the "Right" leaning political party. There IS Racism- I agree 100%. BUT there is just as much on both sides of the political fence. And, not everyone that disagrees with Obama is a racist- I don't care what color a person's skin is, I do have a problem with Communist/Socialist beliefs. I have checked Obama's voting record from when he was small time politics and all of his votes lean that way. He professes to be a Christian, but he and a lot of the "Left" seem support every other religion but Christianity.”

“Let's see- If Obama had searched for the "best" company to create the website instead of padding the pockets of friends who are in the website business AND if he would admit that there is more "wrong" with Obamacare than is "right" with Obamacare, then maybe this whole deal would have been better. If you have a wrecked car and there is "too" much damage, it gets written up as 'totaled". YES there are still good parts that can be used but the car as a whole is totaled. You don't say, "The steering wheel is still perfect, the seats look good, 2 tires are fine, so lets use it". If you are smart, you DON'T spend more money to fix that car than it would take to buy a new one!!!”

“YES, too bad she wasn't allowed to arm herself- he certainly ARMED himself. And I don't think he was obeying the law when he did ARM himself. Somehow people get the mistaken idea that more laws (such as "gun" laws) will prevent violence. The problem is, as we have seen here, the ones doing the crimes DO NOT obey the laws- leaving the honest law abiding citizens unarmed and vulnerable for attack! It's good old common sense. Another common sense idea is teaching kids right from wrong- something we are sorely lacking in the US, due to an overwhelming "liberal minded" attitude!”

“Although I do believe the officers could have waited for the "alleged assault rifle assailant" to fire a shot b/4 they opened fire, the report does say officers called for backup and "repeatedly ordered Lopez to drop the weapon." Children are not taught to obey or follow directions these days. That may be as much of a factor in this as anything else.”

“You are assuming that the police did exactly what they say they did? Why do you not suspect that the cops might be covering up? I think these are questions that need to be asked. I find it very hard to believe that a 13 year old would not do exactly what the police are telling him to do, probably with guns drawn. That part strains credibility.”

ReadingDerp on Oct 24, 2013 at 08:38:03

“....

You actually think police officers should have to wait to be shot at by an assault rifle before firing? That is crazy on so many levels it is beyond belief.

First, a standard threat level II ballistics vest isn't going to stop a 7.62 round (AK round). It isn't even going to phase it. If you get hit anywhere in the torso with an AK round, you are most certainly dead.

Second, rifles are infinitely more accurate than hand guns. Even if the shooter is terrible with guns, it's still easy for him to hit and kill an officer with the first shot.

How can you possible think that's a good idea?”

“"In 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program." "One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.

Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it. We had an example of this. Under the Truman administration it was proposed that we have a compulsory health insurance program for all people in the United States, and, of course, the American people unhesitatingly rejected this."”

“Lawmakers, even the Democratic lawmakers don't want Obamacare for their personal Health care. If it's not good enuf for the lawmakers, then why should the rest of the country, poor people included, be plagued with such a thing? ”

James Lorenzato on Oct 15, 2013 at 18:45:30

“Consider the very plush plan those lawmakers are losing. By contrast the essential benefits in Ocare are modeled on the plan that covers most federal workers (FEHBP) so what may be a step down for Congress is still solid coverage for most people. The problem looks to be the size of the deductibles, though. What good is having coverage you can't afford to use?”

He's not stupid, so he has explored all of the avenues. He's not alone. I've talked to other people. I've talked to doctors, pharmacists, business owners, etc... Obamacre? That dog don't hunt! In other words, the program is flawed. Too flawed to salvage. Obama has too much pride to admit it, though. The Right should have left it alone and when it completely flopped, the country would ALL have realized. They were trying to save people a lot of hassle/problems/money. A lot of good it did them.

“The right has no standards, honor, or conscience. It cares only for itself . The one war it has lost here irretrievably is the one that asks whether things could be better. Things could be better. People could be more free to control their own lives. Is Obamacare TOO flawed, maybe. Is the idea of controlling an out-of-control trainwreck that is downing a fifth of the economy too flawed ? NO. The GOP has already lost this war no matter what happens with a flawed program.It has lost the war against the peasants asking "does it have to be this way?”

“Repubs want good healthcare for the country, too. O-Care is not a good health care program. A personal friend of mine, has finally worked hard and is not living in a trailer anymore. He finally could afford a house. He's not wealthy by any means. With O-Care, his health care went from $2500 a year to $12,000 a year. He may have to apply for Gov. assistance. Is that what O-Care was supposed to do for our working class? I don't blame the Repubs for trying anything they can to get rid of Obamacare (Pelosi, "We have to pass it to see what's in it"). ”

“From the beginning, the only thing Congress would not pass in the budget was Obamacare. Everything else was budgeted and ready to go. Research it you don't believe me. The liberal news outlets won't say anything about it because it tells the truth about Obama being responsible. Obama is to blame because he will not give an inch on Obamacare. There is too much wrong with Obamacare for it to proceed without being revisited. Blame anyone you want, but the real blame lies in the WH. Obama supporters don't care what happens just as long as it doesn't make "O" look bad.”

James Lorenzato on Oct 13, 2013 at 19:27:26

“The assumption that there is too much wrong with the ACA and it needs to be revisited is premature. It is due to a combination of predictions and propaganda but the real effect of the ACA is unknown as yet. Of course the notion of any revision without Dem control of the WH and both houses of Congress is laughable. The GOP intends to kill it and nothing less. Then they will go on to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and the Civil Rights Act.”

“Look, the Republicans are not even mentioning Obamacare any longer... I know it's hard to keep up when the spin keeps changing every hour, but the current demands involve Social Security and Medicare. In any case the question is not about WHAT is being demanded, but HOW it is being demanded. The CR as originally passed by the Senate already used the sequestered budget values demanded by the Republicans, so this is no longer about the budget numbers either. This is about pushing forward with an agenda soundly defeated by the American people in the last election and If you and the rest of the Teapublicans honestly believe that THIS is how a democracy should work, then you should declare yourself an anarchists, and stop using the term "patriots" to describe who and what you are.”

BUT When you consider Obama is not JUST closing the Nat. Parks to keep them "off limits", in some cases he's put up barricades where they can't even be viewed from a distance. He also had some public roads closed so that U.S. tax payers can't even ride on "said public roads" nearby the sights and look at them from a safe distance. All the while, illegal aliens are rallying on the Mall in D.C. Now, let me say that the process for legalization DOES need to be revisited!
