How many people above the age of 18 that doesn't drive a car?
    Umm...millions of people live just fine without vehicles everyday, like people who live and work in Manhattan for example. They are free to choose their work/locale/lifestyle/etc. The point is they are not being forced to drive a car! Therefore they are not being forced into buying something they don't want or need (car insurance).

    Maybe the government should charge people who don't drive a car a penalty to pay for people who want to drive a car, but can't afford to......

    We are distracted from the matters of real importance and live in fairy tale lands. Well guess what, Adrian Peterson doesn't know you or give a fuck about you, neither does LeBron, or Obama. Wendy's doesn't give a fuck about us, if they did then they wouldn't feed their cattle corn, when in reality they are only supposed to graze grass. They care about the bottom line. It's cheaper to feed cattle corn, but in reality their immune system doesn't process it correctly and deadly viruses can born. Our FDA is completely inept, but it's a reflection of the federal government.

    Ron Paul is correct that there is very little difference between the two candidates, they both sucked. He also mentioned how the debates never even touched on monetary policy or auditing the Federal Reserve. Neither really gave a plan as to where their cuts would be. They are going to try to borrow and spend out of the recession. All this talk about "job creation" without addressing our national debt. 20 trillion in debt by 2016 and people don't think that the value of our currency will take a hit. It's also not a big deal that artificial value can be created on a computer system or the Federal Reserve can just print more currency, behind closed doors and manipulate the money supply without any oversight from congress.

    Just make sure you DVR The Jersey Shore! Fuck Americans and what were becoming.
    I voted for him in the primary. I voted for Johnson in the general just to try to help out the LP even if I don't really care for them much either. The people will wake up eventually. Unfortunately, it will probably be by troops marching the streets after the phony economy collapses.

    Yeah, I'm convinced by another baseless media smear job of the only honest man in Washington. Even if he did double bill his travel expenses, which I doubt, he covered it when he returned the money that was left over from running his office every year. Or by not taking a federal pension.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/17/washington-post-elizabeth-flock-resigns_n_1431005.html

    Washington Post writer Elizabeth Flock resigned last week after an editor's note ran above her blog post stating that a "significant ethical lapse" had occurred from failing to appropriately credit a source.

    ...

    This is not the first time that an editor's note has been added to Flock's post. In December 2011, Flock came under fire for a post she wrote titled, "Mitt Romney is using a KKK slogan in his speeches." The editor's note above that piece stated that the post "contains multiple, serious factual errors that undermine its premise." The note also acknowledges that The Post "should have contacted [GOP candidate Mitt Romney's] campaign for comment before publication."

    That is irony.

    I still don't get why anyone thinks a reasonable person is going to believe that Ron Paul, a millionaire with a staff who handles his day to day finances for him, has been personally 'nickle and diming' the government over a period of 10 years over airplane tickets to the grand total of only $15,000 - all while annually returning over $100,000 in office funds to the Treasury.

    The entire premise makes absolutely no logical sense, does it?

    And this certainly does not earn the headline, "Ron Paul One Of The Most Corrupt Members Of Congress, Report Finds" which by the way is NOT what the report found (read the actual report linked in the blog).

    Elizabeth Flock is, at worst, a liar (for her headline) and, at best, a careless dispenser of very hyperbolic "news" reporting.

    I may have mentioned this on here before, but I have a pre-existing condition (seizure disorder). First things first...you are welcome to make fun of me for it. All of my friends do and I enjoy it.

    On a more serious note, I'm getting rejected by EVERY individual insurance plan in PA, whereas here in FL I've had an individual plan that I pay $161 per month with a $250 medicine deductible and a $1,500 medical deductible with reasonable co-pays. Up there I'm appealing five rejections and if I do get approved, indy plans are looking more like $200 minimum. Group will be at least $400 and both my wife and I will need to get it through her uncle's practice. That's a lot more than I'm used to.

    So for someone like me, what are my costs looking like under Obama's plan, when do I start, etc, etc? Can't find anything with specific numbers. Wht will te plans cover? Have specific carriers been chosen?
    I am also known as Liberace.

    Taking up to 10 $10 bets LeBron does not return to Cleveland on his next contract. If you think he is, bet me $10.

    Proceeds will go to a charity or cause that we agree upon.

    It's really unknown territory. They will have to cover your pre-existing condition, and they will not be able to charge you more because of it. Does that mean that it will be cheaper than you pay now? Who knows. The exchange opens up more competition between plans and should make them more competitive to group plans since everyone without a group plan will be shopping from the exchange. I think that this will bring down costs in the short term, but long term I'm not all that hopeful that this is the fix. I think this is the seed that leads us to a real solution though.

    6,125 Proposed Regulations and Notifications Posted in Last 90 Days--Average 68 per Day

    By Penny Starr

    November 9, 2012

    (AP File Photo)

    (CNSNews.com) – It’s Friday morning, and so far today, the Obama administration has posted 165 new regulations and notifications on its reguations.gov website.

    In the past 90 days, it has posted 6,125 regulations and notices – an average of 68 a day.

    The website allows visitors to find and comment on proposed regulations and related documents published by the U.S. federal government. "Help improve Federal regulations by submitting your comments," the website says.

    The thousands of entries run the gamut from meeting notifications to fee schedules to actual rules and proposed rule changes.

    In recent days, for example, the EPA posted a proposed rule involving volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings: “We are approving a local rule that regulates these emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act),” the proposed rule states. “We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.”

    Another proposed rule will provide guidance for FDA staff on "enforcement criteria for canned ackee, frozen ackee, and other ackee products that contain hypoglycin A." (Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica; unripened or inedible portions can be toxic.)

    Some of the proposed regulations revise regulations already on the books.

    The website also links to a video of a speech President Barack Obama gave at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 7, 2011, in which the president promised to remove “outdated and unnecessary regulations.”

    “I've ordered a government-wide review, and if there are rules on the books that are needlessly stifling job creation and economic growth, we will fix them,” the president said.

    A number of groups, including the Competitive Enterprise Institute, expect a rush of new regulations now that President Obama has won a second term:

    CEI expects the EPA to move ahead on delayed rules on everything from greenhouse gas emissions to ozone standards. “Rules from the health care bill and the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill will also likely make themselves known in the weeks to come," the group said on its website.
