And the trainwreck continues:

Company behind Obamacare website in charge of nearly $2 billion in Sandy relief

Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare website

I'd like to hear your summary of why you think the facts in those two articles contribute to a trainwreck.

Never been there before, but I actually got to hand it to that website because those are some pretty solid articles. Just the facts without spinning or trying to draw any conclusions (the comments on the other hand ). Though the first article would probably benefit from a clearer headline, they're in charge of the IT infrastructure and services for aid distribution not the money itself.

Maybe come up with something specific rather than just ranting. Which proposal violates the 2nd Amendment, and how?

Wake up. Just please wake the fuck up.

I looked over the 23 executive orders in the description of the third video. Which one violates the 2nd amendment?

Rollin, you earlier mentioned a Republican proposed single-payer system. That's kind of been rolling around in my head ever since then and I've been unable to find anything about it. Can you link that please?

There have been republicans saying all along the only way to make it work at all would be to have a single payer option. Without it, Obamacare is going to fail and the majority will pay more.

We already have tons of proof in it's current form it'll cost the majority more. But the democrats just had to ramrod it through anyway because this is Obama's legacy. For better or worse.

Those are blog posts that accurately state reality... A single payer option is better for everyone. That doesn't change that Republicans fought against that tooth and nail and we ended up with the ACA instead. I still haven't been able to find a serious Republican proposal through legislation for single-payer and that's what you made it sounds like when you wrote this ridiculous gem:

The republican plan had single payer, Obama just didn't want to give any credit to the GOP or use their plan because it wasn't his. This guy has been the most partisan president in my life time. That's a problem.

Hillary ignored the cable wires asking for backup, then this administration blamed it on a movie.

"Diplomatic Security Service agents/Regional Security Officers informed their headquarters in Washington about the attack just as it was beginning at about 9:40 local time (3:40PM Eastern Time). By 4:30 Eastern, Pentagon officials informed Defense Secretary Leon Panetta about the attack. The Pentagon ordered an unmanned aerial vehicle that was in the air conducting surveillance on militant camps to fly over Benghazi. The drone arrived at 11:10 pm local time (5:10 pm Eastern Time) and began providing a video feed to Washington. At 5:41 pm Eastern Time, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoned CIA Director David Petraeus to coordinate. The CIA, which made up most of the US government's presence in Benghazi, had a ten-member security team at its annex and the State Department believed that this team would assist the consulate in the event of an attack."

And like I already wrote, "the embassy was attacked by terrorists the same day as worldwide [U.S. embassy] protests against some idiot's anti-Islam movie and the intelligence community originally cited that as pre-cursor to the attack."

Close Guantanamo: I don't believe terrorist deserve trials in the US do you?

Why wouldn't they? Something has to be done with them. This limbo shit is so wrong. Try them or release them.

How about you prove it then because there isn't a single person on this site that acts like "Obama can do no wrong".

Unfairly labeling people is about 80% of your shtick here.

Aside from bagger making a passing comment about Obamacare I have never once seen you guys even mention Bhengazi or the multitude of other incidents that the media has given him a complete pass on. Not once.

Ranting about the president is your thing. I'm not sure when I'm supposed to do it. You'll also notice I don't rant about Bush either. And since I'm not your monkey and I don't feel the need to do so just to satisfy you, just know that there's plenty of things that I don't agree with Obama on.

Benghazi (fuck man you'd think you'd know how to spell your own pet topics) is not a scandal for me. The embassy was attacked by terrorists the same day as worldwide prostests against some idiot's anti-Islam movie and the intelligence community originally cited that as pre-cursor to the attack. Where's the scandal?

The IRS giving extra scrutiny to applications for tax exemption submitted by groups affiliated with Taxed Enough Already seems like common sense to me. The list of keywords included all kinds of groups including leftists. There was no malice to the list of keywords, they were simply fed into a program that analyzed tax exemption applications so that it could flag them for additional scrutiny. However having said that it does appear that the extra scrutiny procedures themselves were overboard... inappropriate questions, extra long delays, and other crap. These were specific IRS offices pulling this shit, I don't think Obama ordered "Hey IRS fuck with righties a bit extra," the IRS have been assholes long before Obama was born.

I guess I am doing my fucking monkey dance for you, here's a few...

Obamacare: I wanted single payer. Instead Obama and the democrats let big business and republican's entrench private insurance and medical industry profits and essentially enact Romneycare. There's plenty of good stuff in there but it doesn't address the inflated costs of healthcare in this country. There are smarter write-ups on this topic than I have the time or effort to provide here but basically a single payer system would allow the government to negotiate for lower prices.

NSA: Fuck all this shit.

Patriot act renewal: Fuck the majority of that.

War on whistleblowers and journalists: Unacceptable.

Close Guantanamo: This is mostly blocked by republicans but here's a chance for Obama to do one of his executive orders and bypass them...

Gay Marriage: He didn't act fast enough on this... basically just waited until it was politically expedient.

Marijuana: Legalize that shit already... stupidest fucking law we have but it's too good for so many established industries like prisons, police, rehab/social work, alcohol, tobacco etc.

Edit: Yeah what Redmask said. If you're confronted with an actual response you ignore it and start up a new rant.

I call em how I see em, hold Obama accountable for all the lying he's done, there's a wide range of topics from Bhengazi, to Obamacare, to the IRS bullshit etc to choose from.

You really need to work on your reading comprehension and coherent response skills. You said you label people who act like Obama can do no wrong... There is nobody here like that. You can go read through posts in this thread and others where people frequently have misgivings, disappointments, and outright anger with things that Obama has done but you disregard that and call them one of your oh so clever insults for liberals. Now with this post you've just moved the goal posts to, "Oh you have to disagree with and chastise Obama in the ways that I personally do" or else blah blah blah. I really hope you're lying or joking about being 36, that's some really sad shit given what I've seen from you. Perhaps you'd be better suited posting youtube comments.

edit: Oh I see you've edited your original post now so that your criteria for labeling can jibe with your current behavior.

Hilarious...

If I want to use HD on Amazon Prime Instant Video I have to leave my TV on because my desktop display is not HDCP compliant but my secondary display the TV I hardly use is. Weirdly enough I prefer watching movies and TV at my desk. If I turn the TV off the Amazon player will detect and immediately switch back to SD only.

I try to go legit with my media and all they want to do is figure out ways to fuck me over and make piracy still the better product.

edit: Hahah and if I try to watch it on my TV display I need to leave my non-HDCP desktop display on or else it reverts... Basically both have to be on for me to have HD content. That is against their own idiotic rules, a pop-up came up saying all displays need to be HDCP, except my only working configuration is one HDCP and one non-HDCP.

edit2: Okay I figured it all out... Apparently both my displays are HDCP compliant but if I have them both hooked up they need both be powered on. If I physically unhook one or the other Prime will let me play HD on either.

Desktop and TV cabled and both powered = HDCP
Desktop and TV cabled only one powered = No HDCP
Only Desktop cabled and powered = HDCP
Only TV cabled and powered = HDCP

Please fill out this survey so I can call you a liar because I can't comprehend why anyone would want to willingly contribute to the betterment of a society other than an inexperienced child.

Seph when you get out into the real world and realize you have to work for things, they aren't just handed to you on the backs of others, and they SHOULDN'T be, maybe you'll gain some wisdom as to how the world actually is.

It's nice to dream about this magical utopia that you think socialism would somehow bring about, without realizing that someone has to pay for it all. Reality has a habit of smacking you upside the head eventually. You'll get there someday I'm sure.
Didn't you read my post earlier about my company providing my healthcare? You responded to it.

It depends on your definition of the "real world" but I would say I've been living in it for the past 10 years. Graduated from high school in 2004, I took out 50K in public/private loans for college, had two internships (Stardock and Raymond James), graduated from college in 2008 with a BS in IT. Got my first job one month out (they called me because developers were/are in demand here) and I've been working salaried here for the past 4.75 years. It's an excellent company, I get bi-annual raises, nearly monthly bonuses, profit sharing, full health and dental, and ample vacation and personal time. I put 20% into my 401k (and the company matches to a certain amount) I drive a 2013 Taurus SHO and am shopping around for my first home (apartment now). I vote in every election I can and vote to raise taxes whenever possible because I have more money than I need. Throughout my life and my family's we've made use of infrastructure and programs that are supported by taxes.

We live in a powerful and successful country that can afford to raise the quality of life for its citizens. If I lived somewhere else in the world I likely wouldn't have been as successful as I am. It was poorly stated but Obama's "you didn't build that" speech was trying to drive this point home. You benefit everyday from something that is paid for with taxes, you aren't doing it alone.

That's actually why I posted it. Figured you would get a kick out of it.

Not surprised. So it's a joke to you then. Look at the national average for what Obamacare is going to ultimately cost people, and the numbers don't lie. Just like the myth about Clinton's magical non existent surplus we have the democrats bold faced outright lying again. And it's you and me, and all the rest of the American tax payers, whether you're liberal, republican, or anywhere in between who are going to pay for it. Fucking awesome.

My younger sisters get to stay on my mom's insurance for a few more years because of Obamacare but they got estimates from the exchange anyway and it's going to be cheaper for them then pre-Obamacare health insurance when they do eventually need it. I'm provided health insurance by my company that's $16 a paycheck for health and $3.25 for dental and I put $5 in my flexspend. So with two paychecks a month that's $48.50. I think it might've just gone up a bit a few months ago and the CEO sent out an email that he'll make sure it stays reasonable since our health is important to him.

That's really all the anecdotal evidence I have left.
