I know that we fall on different sides of the spectrum in regards to the protest. As a retired military cop the big issue I have is with the protest the week before, where two officers were injured and you had protesters calling for the death of police officers. How many people spoke up against it? I counted one..the niece of MLK, Dr. Alveda King who called out the dangerous rhetoric. I just wish that more would have taken her lead.

Best President of what? Improved race relations in America. I keep an open mind and I don't really see any proof. We are just as divisive as ever. That viewed is only shared by a couple of people where I work and their on the side of the political spectrum.

Someone said on the news this morning that Obama and Holder said the minimum about the NYC police assassinations. Now let us see what they will do about this kind of vindictive violence and murder. I won't hold my breathe for a more in depth response from either of them.

I just saw the movie "America: Imagine the World Without Her", on Redbox DVD. It's a must see. It really explains the nonsense about the self-hatred of liberals. It's by Dinesh D'Souza, the same guy who made "Obama 2016".

Each time I got the same answer, and sure enough it IS my very favorite movie EVER!

DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results to the list of movies at the bottom

You will be AMAZED at how scary true and accurate this test is

1. Pick a number from 1-9.

2. Multiply that number by 3.

3. Add 3.

4. Multiply by 3 again.

5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add the first and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:


Movie List:

1. Gone With the Wind

"Have you EVER heard of Jonathan Gruber?"

Sure I have, he recently became a popular talking point on right-wing media sites... I would challenge YOU to actually review the point he made last month, rather than listen to what was parroted by the right;

"Was Gruber making a larger point here that we're missing? Definitely. If you can get past his condescending tone and insults, Gruber's speeches actually offer some insight into how policy is impacted by politics. "If you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in -- if you made it explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, OK?" Gruber said. And while the (impartial) jury on the Affordable Care Act is still out, the law has lowered that national uninsured rate and, so far, the law is proving to be cheaper than expected."

"Maybe you should do a little investigating on why there is so many pages..."

Read-up. Enjoy. While your at it, why don't you some more research to better identify relevant examples to help prove your assertion regarding a do-nothing Congress being a good thing?

I don't know. Harry Reid says 9 million but his numbers only add up to eight.

As for his report being accurate the link says, "Reid would have been on more solid ground if he had framed his numbers correctly — that about 9 million people now have healthh coverage through provisions in the Affordable Care Act. (For the moment, we will accept the 4 million figure for Medicaid, but that could be subject to change as more data roll in.) Instead, he strained too far and asserted that all of these Americans did not have healthh coverage before. That’s not correct.

Update: We determined that there are serious problems with the Medicaid figure, and awarded ourselves Three Pinocchios for allowing it to stand. We have also updated this rating to Three Pinocchios."

The posted link goes to another link which says the 3.9 million for Medicaid is wrong.

So, let me ask you, how many people now have health insurance that didn't have it prior to ObamaCare? You must know something this Administration doesn't.

"Was there a problem with health care costs? Yes but did the Government "fix' the problems? Was there an increase or decrease in costs? Was our health care made better or worse?"

Might want to ask those who previously didn't have insurance for various reasons.

Could it be better? Undoubtedly. Unfortunately 'half' of the people who could have put their say into the Bill sat on their hands, trying to help campaign for the 2012 POTUS election. Fail.

So you think the federal government is the only entity that spends money on medical care?

No state or local governments support emergency rooms that provide care, at a higher cost, to those without insurance. You or your employer don't pay higher insurance premiums to offset the costs of providing free or subsidized care to those who aren't covered or can't afford it?

Just giving examples on how the Government "fixes" problems when unleashed from gridlock. The Income Tax problem keeps growing and growing and just the laws are over 77,000 pages. A lot of trees gave their all for the publication of this absurd, outdated and freedom limiting method of raising revenue for the running of government.

ObamaCare was over 2,700 pages and I heard they were followed by an additional estimated 30,000 pages of regulations.

How many people were and CONTINUE to be hurt by this disastrous bill? Was there a problem with health care costs? Yes but did the Government "fix' the problems? Was there an increase or decrease in costs? Was our health care made better or worse?

BTW, those trees who were sacrificed take in CO2 and convert it to oxygen. ;-)

"So you're saying Obamacare helped ALL the citizens as is Congress' job to oversee?"

I'm pretty sure I outlined 'exactly' who was helped - millions who were previously uninsured. Had Obamacare been a truly bi-partisan effort it would have been a larger success... Instead the GOP held their breath and stomped their feet rather than doing their job.

"Are you also saying the Income Tax that was supposed to tax only property sales totalling over $1,000,000 (a tax on the wealthy) has been successful?"

Why are you trying to give anecdotal examples from over a century ago? Can you try to be more relevant?

In the mean time, while you applaud Congress for sitting on its hands and doing literally nothing, 'real' problems like immigration are continuing to fester and 'real' people are being affected by this every day. Just one relevant example out of many.

The examples I gave ALL solved problems the Government way.

My reply to "Knox" who said "no one" likes gridlock:

"Just imagine if we had gridlock in:

+ 2010. No Obamacare.
+ July 1901, No Direct Income tax
+ May 1912, No direct election of Senators from an uniformed electorate.

The list is unfortunately long but these three decisions should at least make you reconsider your position."

So you're saying Obamacare helped ALL the citizens as is Congress' job to oversee?

Are you also saying the Income Tax that was supposed to tax only property sales totalling over $1,000,000 (a tax on the wealthy) has been successful?

Finally, are you also saying the direct election of Senators that was to end corruption and delays was successful?

jdhelm - "If George W. Bush had created the position 32 or more Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved."

G.W. had 33 czars by title, with 49 people being appointed to those positions, 28 of which were never approved by the Senate.

"If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?"

Bush did double the national debt, in terms of current dollars, during his two terms. BO hasn't managed that yet.

The last budget surplus we had was in fiscal 2001. By the end of G.W.'s reign, spending had increased from 18.2% of GDP to 24.7%, while tax revenue declined from 19.5% of GDP to 14.8%. And the economy was in ruins.

"If George W. Bush had spent more than all the Presidents combined since George Washington, would you have approved?"

In terms of current dollars, possibly. In terms of constant dollars, not even close.

"So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?"

Nothing. How does that make him worse than G.W.?

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
