^ Or it could be because the US is barred from sending foreign aid to any country that has had a coup, which is why they all went to great lengths never to refer to it as a "coup."
You didn't know this for the same reason that you're jealous of public school teachers...you never got an education. Ignorance mixed with jealousy results in terrible outcomes.

Then go with someone else. I just left Aetna this year because of the same thing.
It's not the ACA's fault that Aetna decided to make a money grab, and as such is hopefully losing a lot of business.

Commoncitizen, how did they exempt themselves?
I hear this argument all the time, but I have yet to get a decent response.
btw, I know the answer to this, and I know what the legislation was that the Glenn Beck-types are referring to. And, it's not an exemption in any sense of the word. But, I'd be interested to hear what Commoncitizn thinks it is.

It's pretty disgusting how moderate Republicans are so afraid of the neo-fascist Tea-Partiers that they're allowing them to shut down the government.
The ACA has NOTHING to do with a continuing resolution or a budget. Republicans need to realize that they lost that debate. The only people really ranting about the ACA are those who don't even understand what it does. Not only that, but we had a presidential election after its passage, and the majority of Americans voted to keep Obama. If these anti-healthcare Republicans want to debate the ACA, they should do so when that is the topic at hand. But, in this case, it's the budget, not the ACA.
The fact that so many do not seem to be able to realize the bait-and-switch that the Tea-Party just pulled is truly depressing.

How does a guy who's been locked up since 17 have a wife and 4 kids?
I'd like to know how he provides for them from behind bars.
Or, is this some woman who married an imprisoned felon because he's the only person who'll pay any attention to her?
At any rate, it's lovely to see such fine people refer to others as "low-information" when their f-ing husband is a convicted murdered and behind bars! Yeah, that's indicative of a highly functioning individual.
Though, most of all of this is for naught. This guy's most likely never going to see the light of day outside the prison walls ever again for a simple reason. People like me, and we're many, always vote; and more importantly we give campaign contributions. I don't live in Trumbull county, so I don't donate to those local official, but I'm sure there are many people who do live in Trumbull county who are like me. The officials know that if they don't do what's right (and keep animals locked up), they won't get campaign contributions. Criminals can't vote, and criminal supporters are usually dirt poor so they can't give contributions. So, who wins these situations typically? I'm feeling pretty confident that this criminal filth won't be allowed out, lest we deal with his dirtbag progeny 20 years from now.

There is no way that someone who writes like this has any proper "degrees." How can I tell? That's simple.
Trashy uneducated people typically have a different set of social values and mores. For example, the absurd focus on "everybody makes mistakes" and "you don't know him, you can't judge him." That's the same stuff you can hear on Maury during the out of control teens or DNA test shows. Middle class people don't talk like that, and they sure as h-ll don't lump murder and burglary into the same category of past mistakes as smoking some weed or getting caught past curfew. Example #2 is the way that low-class people will constrict the definition of a crime to the very narrowest a la "he only injured him, the other guy put it in his head." To the middle class person, there is no difference, both are equally guilty. Example #3, "my kid tests above average in ....." Middle class people know that how kids do in grade school doesn't mean a thing. It's what they do in college that matters, so talking about how your kid's doing in school as a sign of good parenting looks ridiculous to those with educations.
This is why I can say with near perfect authority that the poster above IS NOT the typical middle class suburbanite. Just because the criminal class can scratch together enough money for a down payment on a ranch-style home in Boardman or Hubbard doesn't mean that they can pass themselves off as decent humans.
The fact that someone like proudmother lives in a world that includes guys saving other guys from getting raped in prison is proof enough that she's low class.

To Royce and the trashy women who married felons, yes, you are worthless. If you've served time, you're a worthless POS that is lucky the state didn't have the cajones to haul you to the gallows.
As for the fine fellow Ferrell, where did all the tats come from? Did he have them as a 16 year old? He and his ilk killed a guy who worked for a living so that they could leach off other people. Now the low-class wives and other criminal filth come on here and try to defend him. RUBBISH. He's a killer, he deserves never to see the outside world again.

Honestly, how can anyone be so stupid as to think that university presidents are part of a union? Same as school superintendents, police chiefs, or mayor.
Ysuwin must be one of the dumbest people I've ever seen on this site.

Work hard, my friend, and maybe one day you too will own something worthwhile. Then we'll see how you act when people come in and try to weasel their way onto your land.
