“Thats part of the problem. Too many Americans did not pay attention to civics, history, or social studies. They went through their lives refinancing their homes, buying cars, and not really paying attention. Then the financial meltdown took place and their little bubble dried up and they were introduced to financial hardship. So with no education in how congress works, they got involved and help put in canadates with no political experience called the tea party and here we are. Too many people who never cared before have now gotten involved and put unexperienced politicians in office and instead of understanding the political art of compromise, declare it is their way or the hiway. The congressiona traffic cops have been booted out and we are left with one big traffic jam.”

“Why wasn't McCann rejected? He provoked the issue by running up the basepath at Gomez? If the Braves had such a problem with Gomez, they should have plucked him when he came back up to bat. They were only in the first inning. That is usually how teams deal with "unwritten rules breakers" , it prolongs the drama for the fans; waiting for that moment of retribution and the reaction to it. Geez Braves, you ruined the chance to make this story more interesting.”

“Imagine how much easier medical coverage would have been now,if we would have acted on Truman's proposal on government sponsered insurance in the forties. With all respect sir, there were many critics (and still are) of medicaid and medicare when they were started. We are hearing two different scenerio's on how Obamacare will work from two different camps. Maybe we will both be right on some of it and maybe we will both be wrong. I guess we will have to wait and see. Do I think the law is sound and absolutly perfect, God no, it will need adjustments of what is good and what is bad. However, that is not going to happen until logical, emotion in check debates about fixing the law takes place in Congress.”

“" at no point since 1812 (even that was a stretch) has anyone's freedom been in danger. "

I know of four little girls who are receiving the congretional medal of honor this week (posthumously), and I bet their family members beleived their freedom was in danger.

For some when they first enlist, the money may be the main reason, however, by the time their renlistment comes they know very well how much they get paid and how much more their civillian couterpart is getting paid. Yet, a lot of these people reenlist and some do three, four ,five tours of crap holes you or I cant imagine. Go train and live with someone for a year and a half and then have that person who you have become fond of and feel like they will always have your back become vaporized right in front of you. Then you come back and post that its just a job that your doing it for the money.”

Insurers that want to sell health plans through Oregon's health insurance exchange have surprised industry experts with lower-than-expected premium rates.
Health Net, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, LifeWise Health Plan and Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield and other insurance companies all submitted their proposed health plans they intend to sell on the state-run marketplace, called Cover Oregon.
But despite warnings from industry officials and insurance brokers that premium prices would grow by more than 30 percent in Oregon, the rates that the 16 insurers proposed are actually "much more reasonable than some people had been predicting," Gary Claxton, a vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, told Reuters.

Even more shocking, perhaps, is that insurers' initial filings have led to a new concern that the rates are actually too low. If, for example, low rates drive insurers from the state”

“Ah,but mine is Medicare Advantage through Kaiser and Obama ruined us by stealing 716 billion from medicare and putting into Obamacare.  He called it savings, but what he did was destroy an insurance used by 30 percent of all seniors.  We are going to get sc..re..wed next year.”

“First of all, has anyone talked to God to see if this is even a problem? I doub't it. Also, if people are going to use the blasphemous card, then isn't all the portraits of a White Jesus also blasphemas? Lets face it, if you are born in Nazareth and you are of Jewesh decent, there is a pretty good chance the pigmentation of your skin would not reflect what has been hanging in churchs for centuries. Maybe we should keep it in perspective and be glad this child is even praying at all. I belive that would be considered Christian understanding and acceptance, something I learned in Sunday school and Church from the teachings of my God.”

“The color of the people in ancient Israel has been the subject of a great deal of propaganda, often brought about by examining the color of the skin of people who were there 100 years ago -- as though they were original occupants of the land.

But we know that things were different back then. Despite what people imagine from Elizabeth Taylor, Cleopatra was probably blonde. Red haired people -- who usually have fair skin -- were not uncommon.

We do not know how Jesus looked but the earliest representations of him that reliably can be considred to show skin color -- from a few hundred years after his life and by people familiar with that local area (because they were from that local area) show him to be a white guy (but perhaps tanned) with dark hair and eyes.”
