“"Uninsured Americans have until about mid-February to sign up for coverage if they are to meet the law's requirement that they be insured by the end of March. If they don't, they will face a penalty."
The site does not have the capacity to accommodate them within that time-frame.”

“I think they will have to extend the deadline or change the mandate.”
“>> "Obama wants to strike against the Syrian regime in response to a chemical attack on civilians last month that the Obama administration says was carried out by Assad's military."
The Nobel Peace Prize winner wants to "strike" to deflect public interest from his unconstitutional NSA's spying programme, Shirley? The Nobel Peace Prize winner wants to "strike" on the basis of what his own administration merely "says"?
>> "Obama says failing to chemical weapons use would , quote, "send a signal to rogue nations.""
I am afraid that that sentence makes no sense. The only thing's going for it is that rogue was not spelt "rouge".”
“The duty of the US President is to uphold the US Constitution... so the US does not currently have a President. Bummer.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."”

“"another example of muslim incompatibility with the west. outdated beliefs that make no sense in a 21st century with modern food hygiene practices. if you want to live in the cave, stay in the cave."
The issue at hand in this comment is that the Muslim's belief in halal and harram is incompatible with the 21st centuary and western life styles.
However, Christians adhere to dietary constraints (specifically on Fridays and during lent), and Jewish kosher is practically identical to the Muslim halal.
Therefore if Muslim belief in some foods being right and wrong to eat, based on religion, then Christian and Jewish beliefs must be similarly out of step (especially considering that the texts proscribing Christian and Jewish diets far predate those prescribing Muslim diets). So I was asking the original poster if he agrees with such a statement, or if it is only Muslim dietry habits that are for archaic. ”
