No, the end of the story is that it IS a tax, as the USSC confirmed. That's how it's implemented, therefore that's what it is.

Self defense is self defense, the Zimmerman case had zero to do with stand your ground, the media circus made it about stand your ground when it had zero to do with the case in reality. That does not excuse Obama's comments on it, or on Martin to try and tug at heart strings or sway people to make him look like a victim. It was an unprecedented thing for a POTUS to do to begin with.
I don't recall saying anything about SYG in my post. Once again, you're not reading the actual post, but just creating a straw man. Martin was a victim of homicide. Whether it was justified or not, we'll never know. Obama has just as much right to speak his mind as any other citizen. That's one of those Amendments you're always talking about, remember? You don't have to agree with him, but aside from calling for re-evaluation of SYG laws (which weren't really a factor here), I don't see anything wrong with his comments.

You said bullshit law, what bullshit law were you talking about then? There's plenty of Black on White crime every day, why hasn't he weighed in on any of those cases?

Well the Supreme Court has ruled the penalty a tax, which is within Constitutionally-granted Congressional power, so it is in fact Constitution as decreed by the Supreme Court. A majority conservative Supreme Court no less. You are not mandated to buy health care; you are just made to pay a penalty if you don't.

They redefined it as a tax to get around it, but let's call it for what it really is please.

Is "Obamacare" really socialized health care though? Do people in socialist nations have to pay a premium and a deductible like people do under the ACA? I always thought socialized medicine meant it was paid for completely out of tax revenues.

It is though, it's requiring everyone to pay into a service provided by the government, something that SHOULD not be allowed to happen period.
No, it's really not. It's requiring us to purchase plans from corporations, not from the government.

Really the Zimmerman case was a perfect example of this which is why I brought it up. How many times has a president in history ever made a federal case of black on black crime, or black on white crime? When have you ever heard the terminology before the zimmerman case of "White Hispanic?" Never mind the double standard when talking about black conservatives, equating them to race traitors, calling them Uncle Toms or the like.
The Zimmerman case was an example of a bad law and a whole lot of uninformed people spewing a lot of uninformed crap all over the place. The bottom line is that since there were no useful witnesses, we don't know who started the conflict. We do know Zimmerman made some really bad, and downright stupid, decisions, but that doesn't tell us who initiated the fight. Since the law doesn't require him to provide any evidence that lethal force was required or that he was attacked, they had to acquit.

It's forcing a service by federal mandate, they're abusing the commerce clause by calling it a tax. Period, end of fucking story.

I've seen some pretty despicable behavior from the media on all sides, Fox has perpetrated alarmingly inaccurate stories and sometimes invented outright falsehoods. I don't really consider CNN liberally biased anymore, I see plenty of both there after doing more research. It's more of a FoxNews/MSNBC mocking for me, they're both awful and I don't watch either for that reason.

Getting back to Obamacare I think once the deployment issues are dealt with we can start making adjustments to bring it to a place where both major parties can live with it. There are funding shortfalls I'd like to see addressed and I don't think its far reaching enough in some categories. If it really turns out to be a turkey then it'll be hung over the Democrats head next election. The political obstructions were ill conceived and I think will ultimately be the death of the tea party. Better to use it ammo against them than to hurt the entire nation and cost us more than them.

My opinion is we have too many people in the US for socialized health care to ever be done in a way that's going to be affordable. Regardless of which party's plan it is. It's just not going to work in the long run doing the actual math.

I really don't have any patience for Zimmerman conspiracy theories on either side of the fence and I'm not going to get into a tit for tat on who is or isn't biased as that's all a matter of perspective. The moment you start going off on shows for soccer moms and shit you're off in lalaland.

First it's Obamacare then it's Obama is so bad it's media bias then its OMG The View and George Zimmerman. This is exactly what Sepharo was talking about earlier about not taking the time to read, understand and respond on topic appropriately.

A set of blog posts and a state level bill is not a 'Republican proposal for a single payer system' on a national, political level. There are many democrats who would like single payer too if you google through some blogs, not everyone thinks Obamacare is perfect. There are also many Conservatives who actually like many aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

NBC, CBS and ABC are all liberally biased, MSNBC gives Obama a pass on everything while blaming everything on those evil conservatives. CNN is generally liberally bias, The View is liberally biased, Joy Beher and Whoopi Goldberg, both liberals, both complete fucking morons.

We have one conservative cable news station, 1! Apparently that's one too many for some.

When you are on the extreme fringe, everything is liberal. That's your perception problem, not reality. You were debunked on this long ago with links confirming even on your so called 'liberal' stations that Conservative views and hosts are more than well booked.

Also The View? Does your arm hurt from reaching that far Gumby? Is Dora the Explorer too left wing? Man there is a lot of sharing on that show, I think maybe shes a socialist.

NBC didn't doctor the Zimmerman 911 call and get caught for it? Dan Rather didn't use a falsified report to slam Bush?

Anderson Cooper and Piers "I'm a douchebag" Morgan aren't liberals?

How bout Chris Matthews or Rachel Maddows or Olberman? Though Olberman is now doing sports I believe since he got shit canned.

Does MSN even have one conservative leaning show on their entire station? Fox at least employs people from the other party.

It depends on what you mean by "Dem biased". Statistics bear out that journalism majors and others who go into news broadcasting out of college tend to be Democrats by a fair margin. That would tend to indicate that there exists in the political demographics amongst those in the news business a natural democrat bias. This is not to say the the news presented for public consumption is necessarily biased the same way - quite the contrary I think. The most biased news I've seen has come out of Fox News, with MSNBC a pretty distant second. The major news media outlets do a fair job of maintaining a balance between the two for the most part. I won't say completely politics agnostic but NOWHERE NEAR the left wing slant that conservatives claim. Living with a Tea Party girl ( my beautiful wife) has taught me that when conservative complain of a liberal media bias it's more often than not because the media is reporting without a heavy right wing slant. Neutral reporting comes across as biased by contrast to how they want to see information dispensed to the masses. It's a matter of perspective in my opinion.

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.

I think Bhengazi was an absolute travesty. I also thought 19 dead army rangers in Mogadishu was a travesty. It's something I actually agree with the Tea Party and conservatives on. But it's a dead issue. Bringing it up now only makes the one bringing it up look like a far-right wacko. Wanna know why? Read "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". The right wing has been so dead set on trying to pin everything on Obama (and Clinton in the '90's) as a scandal that people just tune them out now assuming that they are up to their old tricks. So when they touch on something that actually has something possibly nefarious and/or evidential of gross criminal negligence it gets ignored too. The right wing has nobody to blame but themselves. Take heart though - it worked in Bush`s favor too. Neither he nor the vile cretins in his cabinet will ever be held accountable for the many unnecessary deaths in post war Iraq due to our troops not being supplied with the armor and supplies to keep them safe because of the same constant crying wolf by his opponents for everything he did. "Blame Bush" is a punchline now, and "Blame Obama" right along with it. I say blame the extremist indoctrinated cheerleaders on both side who just never shut up.

I think we can all agree or at least those of us with half a brain, that the media is extremely dem biased. I don't think Obama is to blame for everything, however I think he is incapable of working across the isle. That is a problem.

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.

Hillary ignored the cable wires asking for backup, then this administration blamed it on a movie. They dropped the ball, 4 Americans died and they swept it under the rug.

So you admit you're fine with the IRS targeting specific groups that don't agree with your ideology. That's fucking awesome.

War on Whistleblowers: we agree there

Obamacare: Much like Medicare it's unsustainable, and it's going to be a major fail. 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.

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

Gay marriage: I've said before it should be a non issue, I live in Mass as I've said before, it's legal here, hell hasn't frozen over because of it. You want to be gay that's your choice, the only thing that bugs me a bit is having it thrown in my face constantly as though the majority are gay when it's about 3% of the population, it's not nearly as big an issue to tackle imo right now as say getting our spending under control.

Marijuana: legalize it, the tax revenue would be insane from it.

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.

I certainly don't think Bush was a great president, I've said that multiple times, I didn't agree with the Patriot act, I still don't.
Fact of the matter is based on Obama's track record and his policies, he's approaching topping Jimmy Carter in failures. You have to seriously fuck up to make Jimmy Carter look like a better president.

So after spending $3.2 million on the lamest ad ever (click that if you dare), Oregon still failed to enroll ONE PERSON through the Obamacare site.

Yeah, they are having problems like everyone else it seems. Definitely a mess of a rollout. But they do seem to be doing fairly well in spite of that. It'll probably be closer to the end of year before they have the problems resolved and people start signing up. After hearing about the issues, most are probably just going to wait until they hear that it's improved.

Seems like RT wants to label anyone who doesn't agree with him as some hippie liberal so that he can dismiss any argument without even considering it. I definitely don't fit the typical liberal mold, and I think that most of us that he's arguing with work in corporate jobs and are in the upper few percent of household incomes in this country. RT pretends there is no center in this country though. You either agree with the TP or you're a liberal. It's a bizarre spectrum he seems to use.

I have plenty of issues with Obama, and I don't think Obamacare is a much of a solution for our problems, but then we weren't going to get much of a solution given how Congress has been. I figure the Republicans had a good 10+ years of control of Congress and the Presidency and they didn't do much of anything (and what they did do, they didn't pay for), so we take what we can get. It's at least an improvement, technical fuckups aside.

I want people to have health care. Our current system is just the most retardedly expensive way to provide health care for people who can't afford it. Maybe Romney is ok with us picking them up in an ambulance and taking them to the emergency room, but it's just so unbelievably fucking stupid! Let them get preventative care and early treatment. Keep them healthy so they can look for work and hold down a job. It's better for everyone.

The only labeling I do is to people that act like Obama can do no wrong and that the GOP and Bush are the anti christ. Never once have I seen a more left leaning person on this site, give Obama any shit for Bhengazi, for the IRS scandal, for fast and furious, for lying about Obamacare, for blaming the GOP for every single one of his failures, when you can do that at least once, I'll take you seriously.

I want people to have healthcare too, I think everyone does, I just don't want to pay for people who refuse to help themselves. And that is the major ideological difference between conservatives and liberals, liberals base everything off of feelings rather than logic.

You do it here in this reply, you talk as though the republicans had 10 years to do whatever they wanted which is bullshit, you call Obamacare better when the majority will pay more than they already do, how is this better or any sort of improvement?

Government is never going to handle anything better than the private sector, that's been proven time and time and time again yet you people can't help yourselves. GOVERNMENT WILL SAVE US ALL! It's fallacy.

Ahh, so this is where you guys have been hiding. Jeez, this is STILL going on? Well at least it's off the popular threads list.

So is this the thread where if you dare deviate from the binary thinking that fits neatly into (pick one) LIBERAL/CONSERVATIVE you get labeled as a (pick the other one) CONSERVATIVE/LIBERAL?

A spade is a spade Prez, if you could honestly tell me with a straight face, given Beamer's history that he's not a liberal since he pretty much is the walking DNC playbook 100% of the time then well that's your problem.

I wouldn't know, since 1) I don't really talk with Beamer any more, 2) I don't care about labels but rather the gist of someone's argument and 3) I don't have a copy of the DNC playbook.

Either you can refute his points or you can't. To me labeling someone else as something you consider an object of derision may be convenient but it looks diversionary, almost like you are ducking the issue.

I refute his points fine, then he cries like a bitch and puts people on ignore that he disagrees with.
