Obamacare´s Exemptions From
Insurance Mandate Will Leave
Millions Uninsured

Investor´s Business Daily, by Betsy McCaughey

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/6/2013 11:33:58 AM

On Jan. 30, the Obama administration unveiled a long list of exemptions from the ObamaCare insurance mandate. Flaws and contradictions in the law will cause millions of people to be uninsured. The administration also estimated that the cheapest family plan will cost $20,000 by 2016. This new information indicates that the Affordable Care Act is failing in both goals: making insurance affordable and covering the uninsured. Children are the biggest victims. The hastily drafted law, passed before it was read, overlooked them. The law says that beginning in 2014, employers with 50 or more full-time

Congress is full of idiots, both Republicans and Democrats. How could they have the gall to pass a bill as important as this, without reading it and understanding the implications. On top of that we have a fool as a president.

#2, how about the Non-Affordable, Non-care Act?

We could call it "NaNa" as in nanna nanna boo boo, this smells like doo doo.

Or "Nanna" as in "my Nanna ain´t got no healfcare!"

Of "Nanna" as in "welcome to the Nanna state, now get in line fool!"

Every Estimate I have read leaves out the workers whose employers will cut them from 40 hours to 28 hours to avoid the ObamaCare penalties. They will no longer qualify for employer provided insurance.

I predict that number will be in the tens of millions.

Congress exempted themselves and the unions. If it is so good then why did they do this. This is against the law. Unequal law and the bribed Supreme court members said it was ok.

Following the capture of Mexico´s richest and most dangerous drug lord on Saturday, questions are now being asked about the whereabouts of his 24-year-old beauty queen third wife who gave birth to two of his children in 2011.

SOCHI, Russia — Leave it to figure skating and judging, where winning can be obscured by whining. Any sport without a finish line or clock or some definitive standard is subject to skepticism about the results. It has happened at the Olympics before, and now it´s happened at Sochi after Adelina Sotnikova skated away with the gold medal, the first for a Russian woman in the individual event.(Snip)Under the current points system, adopted after the judging scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, Sotnikova, 17, did exactly what she needed to come out on top.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES -- New details are surfacing about the role Archbishop Roger Mahony played in the investigation of sexual abuse by Catholic priests. When Los Angeles police were investigating allegations of child abuse by a Roman Catholic priest in 1988, they asked for a list of altar boys at the last parish where the priest worked. According to a deposition made public on Wednesday and obtained by the Associated Press, Mahony told a subordinate not to give the list, saying he didn´t want to scare the boys who knew nothing about the investigation.

Jan Koum picked a meaningful spot to sign the $19 billion deal to sell his company WhatsApp to Facebook earlier today. Koum, cofounder Brian Acton and venture capitalist Jim Goetz of Sequoia drove a few blocks from WhatsApp’s discreet headquarters in Mountain View to a disused white building across the railroad tracks, the former North County Social Services office where Koum, 37, once stood in line to collect food stamps.

Science Linking Drought

Matter of Dispute
New York Times, by Justin Gillis    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/17/2014 8:31:44 PM     Post Reply
In delivering aid to drought-stricken California last week, President Obama and his aides cited the state as an example of what could be in store for much of the rest of the country as human-caused climate change intensifies. But in doing so, they were pushing at the boundaries of scientific knowledge about the relationship between climate change and drought. While a trend of increasing drought that may be linked to global warming has been documented in some regions, including parts of the Mediterranean and in the Southwestern United States, there is no scientific consensus yet that it is a worldwide

President Barack Obama, in town since Friday and fresh off a meeting with Jordan´s King Abdullah II, left the Sunnylands estate Sunday morning for a little more golf. He didn´t have far to go. The destination was Porcupine Creek, the private golf course owned by Oracle co-founder and BNP Paribas owner Larry Ellison. According to the Sunday morning White House pool report, Obama -- along with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos -- arrived at Porcupine Creek promptly at 8 a.m. to kick off the outing.

Edward Snowden used to be the most controversial American in Russia. Now it’s referee Brad Meier. The NHL referee born in Dayton, Ohio, officiated Saturday’s preliminary-round Olympic hockey game between Russia and the U.S. Russian hockey fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the referee’s decision to disallow a goal that would have put Russia ahead in a tie game, on the basis that the goal frame was dislodged when Russia scored. Russia ultimately lost to the U.S. in a nail-biting shootout. Here are some translated Russian tweets: (Snip) Translation: Seems like the referee is a patriot. Would

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

SOCHI, Russia -- T.J. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and got the winner in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry. Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shootout. International rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie, one of the NHL´s shootout specialists.

Geneva — The United Nations mediator for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, wrapped up the second round of peace talks here on Saturday without breaking a longstanding deadlock or setting a date for a third round, and urged the parties to think seriously about their commitment to the negotiations. Mr. Brahimi said the talks had broken down primarily because the Syrian government balked at his suggestion that the negotiators discuss both sides’ top demands early on, rather than spending days on the government’s demands. “I am very, very sorry, and I apologize to the Syrian people,” Mr. Brahimi, an Algerian diplomat who has spent

Conservatives have had it up to here (hand to top of forehead) with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Having barely recovered from the Cruz-induced shutdown and the calamitous backlash against Republicans, the GOP had to endure another episode of Cruzian grandstanding and the post-grandstanding trash talk. Mona Charen of National Review (stocked with many Cruz admirers) writes that it is “particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans.” At issue was his stunt on the debt limit in which he denied the

The NFL may penalize players 15 yards for racial and homophobic slurs and eject them from the game after a second offense.

Something is seriously wrong with Michelle Obama. Pitching ObamaCare on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mrs. Obama called young adults "knuckleheads."

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

The real mystery behind the FCC´s now abandoned "study" to police American newsrooms is why the mainstream media refused to raise holy hell over it. While Obama´s lapdogs refused to bark, it was conservative media who fought for newsroom independence and got the FCC to finally back down. Other than the media´s natural obedience to Obama, the fact that the fingerprints of left-wing billionaire George Soros have been found on the FCC study might also help to explain the media´s silence. CNS News reports that for the first ten years of the last decade, Soros donated more than $52 million
