    Tara got a reaction from Malifious in South Carolina Passes Nullification Bill To Make Obamacare A Crime   
    This type of grandstanding is a waste of taxpayer money. No state can null and void a federal law. This is stupidity at its highest. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is law. I wish these jokers would just get over it and move on. There are a lot more productive things that need to be done.

    Tara got a reaction from artistry in Female president   
    I think the US will have a female president very soon. Hopefully, it will be Hilary Clinton. Not because she's a woman, but she seems to be the strongest democratic candidate at this point. She wasn't my first choice in 2008, but I think she's has the credentials. It's a long time between now and 2016, but currently she's the front runner. Three years is a long time in politics. Anything could happen.

    Even if she isn't elected, I do see a female president in the near future.



    The voters (electoral college landside and the popular vote) who elected him were in favor of Obamacare. We already have some "socialist" institutions in the United States. Primary Social Security. The majority of Americans support some type of gun control. He is doing exactly what the voters elected him to do.




    Check out Facebook. There's lots of examples of "hostility and anger" over Pres. Obama. And these are on the White House, Barrack Obama and Michelle Obama fan pages. I hate to think about what's on the specific anti-Obama pages.

    No, I don't think the government was behind the bombing. I do think that some members in the government will take advantage of certain situations to push their own agenda. But I still don't think that the government was behind it.

    Whether you agree or not, Tara has a point, and that is, "No state can make a FEDERAL law, null and void." Regardless of what the "South Carolina State Attorney General" says or tries to do.

    Obamacare is the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or the Affordable Care Act. It is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. Obamacare represents the most significant government expansion and regulatory overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965.

    The Affordable Care Act is aimed at INCREASING the rate of health insurance coverage for Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. It provides a number of mechanisms - including mandates, subsidies, and tax credits - to employers and individuals to increase the coverage rate. Additional reforms aim to improve healthcare outcomes and streamline the delivery of health care. The PPACA requires insurance companies to cover all applicants and offer the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or sex.
     
    Many of the people who are up in arms over Obamacare, are the same people who would actually BENEFIT from the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, as I've stated many times before, there are thousands of Americans who would rather bite off their own noses to spite their faces in a VAIN attempt to DISCREDIT anything that Obama does. The primary reason this is done is because he is a BLACK MAN in the WHITE HOUSE.. plain and simple ..

    Tara reacted to NickJ in Where Do You Get Your News?   
    I don't care much about what tack it takes. I prefer left news as it makes more sense. Not that I am all about the welfare state and giving people stuff for free. But I just don't culturally like or respect American conservatives too much. I'm a New Yorker first and foremost. Their party is all about country music, redneck'ism, and such. I cannot associate myself with a foreign culture just for some political goals. Dems are coastal, I'm coastal, so that's where I stick. If there were more Repubs like Christie, no southern twang and no psychotic moral impulses...I might vote red once in awhile.

    I do agree with this. This is definitely true. I would say that these are strange times, but some Americans have always been afraid of other Americans.

    Tara reacted to Victor Leigh in All the money you have in the bank could disappear in a flash   
    There is one kind of currency which is very difficult to steal from you. It's called knowledge. So when you have the time and the money, spend it on learning something useful. Learning more about edible plants and herbal medicine would be fine. When the banking system crashes, and it's not a question of 'if' but 'when', paper money will be worth less than used toilet paper. Metal currency like gold may still have some value but only if there's something to trade for. Knowledge will be with you always. The more you use it, the more you will have. So start stocking up on the best kind of riches in the world. Be rich in knowledge and you shall never want.

    What a bunch of bunch of bull. If the man is a thug and he is not, maybe that is what is needed to deal  with the thieves, liars and gangsters that are in Congress?
    Checked a box? This man is freaking intelligent, articulate,  and competent enough to do the job. He came into office when we were losing 750,000 jobs a month, we have had years of positive job growth under his administration.. He got health care in place when seven other presidents didn't. He found and had bin Laden killed. I've got your thug. The black people didn't even believe he could be elected, at first, it was the white people who saw his potential. He is only one of four or five presidents re-elected with over 50% of the vote. So talk your crap about how bad he is, the man though you can't see it, is doing a good job. He has put into effect hundreds of things that are helping the American people.  Perhaps you would have liked to have Mr. Rich Man Romney as your president? Wouldn't that be a trip?
    As far as a woman president, Hillary, if she runs will more than likely win. Not because she is a women, but because she is more qualified now, than when she ran before.

    If Congress had appropriated the millions requested to upgrade security a long time ago. perhaps the breach would not have happened. They are the culprits as much as anyone is. They refused to increase security, by not approving the money. They point fingers, when they should blame themselves, McCain and Graham and all the rest of the crazies.

    Even if you delete your account, the information will still be stored on Facebook's servers. Facebook will still have the information.
     
    I was watching a television show where one of the main characters quipped that the government or CIA was behind Facebook. It's the perfect place to spy or keep track of people. People freely share their information online. It's crazy.
     
    I do have a Facebook account, but I don't share squat about myself. I really don't like the timeline because it arranges your activities by date.

    Amen! Women can't even serve as priest. So there's no way a woman could even be pope because the future pope has to rise through the ranks to become an archbishop.
     
     
     
    I attend services every Sunday and most time on Wednesdays. It's a non-denominational church.  Most of my family who are still Catholics don't attend services either.
