Got the morning started with some excellent Community Coffee, a shot of 1865 Bourbon in it (medicinal purposed only) and Saturday Night Live is back for it’s 39th Season. Great opening, really love it shows the problem of Obamacare with comedy. I wish the rest of the media would publish that with more seriousness.
Speaking of propaganda, I read the Houston Chronicle and even for that rag, this was bad. Granted, a lot of the articles they have in here are from other sources, but come on:
Southern states move to tighten voting lawsGot it. Having to show an ID is strict. Having to show an ID to get your Obamaphone while talking on your iPhone is not a problem.
MIAMI — Emboldened by the Supreme Court decision that struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act in June, a growing number of Republican-led states are moving aggressively to tighten voting rules. Lawsuits by the Obama administration and voting rights activists say those efforts disproportionately affect minorities.
At least five Southern states, no longer required to ask Washington’s permission before changing election procedures, are adopting strict voter identification laws or toughening existing requirements.
Also, the "heart of the Voting Rights Act." The fact they cannot use demographic data from 1970, that reviews of voting districts should show who is actually there, not who was there in the 1960s, that's really racist. Pathetic.
Texas officials are battling the U.S. Justice Department to put in place a voter ID law that a federal court has ruled was discriminatory. In North Carolina, the GOP-controlled Legislature scaled back early voting and ended a pre-registration program for students.Got it. It’s discriminatory to not allow people to register on voting day or allow them to vote a month ahead of election. We all know the purpose it to allow people to vote as different people at differ location’s. The dead rise all month. And for some read son they all vote as Democrats. I wonder if there is a pattern?
Nowhere is the debate more heated than in Florida, where the chaotic recount in the disputed 2000 presidential race took place.x
Yes, it’s disputed because the Florida Supreme Court stuck it’s nose into it and tried to rewrite Florida election law after the election had already been decided. Gotta give these leftist this, they don’t take their toys and walk home after they loose an election. They fight to the bitter end.
Now my favorite.
Florida election officials are set to resume an effort to remove noncitizens from the state’s voting rolls. A purge last year ended in embarrassment after hundreds of American citizens, most of whom were black or Hispanic, were asked to prove their citizenship or risk losing their right to vote.Hey morons, if the are not citizens, they cannot vote.
Next was on the front page. Here is the Chron showing it’s still boot licking the regieme of B Hussein and being a propaganda piece for Obamacare. From the front page.
What the new health care law means to youRight. The fact your employer’s insurance company has stopped issuing policies in your state, the new policies are 2-3 times more expensive, no, that don’t affect you.
Enrollment opens Tuesday. Here are answers to the most frequent questions
…Q: I’ve heard that states were supposed to expand Medicaid coverage under this law and that Texas did not. How does that affect who can buy insurance?For some reason this leaves out the fact the “billions of dollars to pay for” Medicaid expansion is only temporary and the states that agree with it are going to be stuck with the full bill in a few years. Then again they are probably booking on the transition to single payer to relieve them of these cost.
A: You’re right. When Congress approved the law, it was believed that most states would expand Medicaid coverage for the poor. The federal government offered states billions of dollars to pay for the expansion. However, some states, like Texas, opted out of the expansion because of objections to expanding the Medicaid program. That left many low-income people ineligible for coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
Q: Who will be left out because Texas did not expand Medicaid?
A: Individuals who will not receive expanded Medicaid coverage earn roughly between $11,500 and about $15,870. Families of four earn between an estimated $23,500 and $31,800.
Here is a classic:
…Q: What’s the penalty if I do not sign up?But you will have a penalty of 1 percent of a person’s income….
A: The individual penalty will be 1 percent of a person’s income or $95 — whichever is higher. The penalty will grow to 2.5 percent of income or $695 per adult by 2016. The penalty for a child will be half that of an adult. The penalty will be due at the time of the 2014 federal income tax filing.
Q: If I’m low-income and don’t qualify for Medicaid, yet I still can’t afford to buy insurance on the exchange, am I going to be penalized if I don’t buy it?
What a waste of electrons.
Well, at least my class finished. Final checks on my paper, uploaded it, DONE A LAST! DONE A LAST! THANK GOD ALMIGHTY, DONE A LAST!
Football, Texans are giving me a heart attack but hopefully they still pull this out. And Chicago got its ass handed to itself. Gotta love it. Saints tomorrow which means I'll be dead on Tuesday afternoon. But hey, it's football….some sacrafices must be made.
Hope you have a great week.
PS: Thanks Texans...
