''These Democrats would applaud the Liar even if he supplied weapons to ISIS.''
Funny how Republicans had nothing to say when their flip flop hero McCain was caught chillin with theM:
In fact ISIS has gone on record as saying he armed them.
Where is the outrage from the right wingers?
Outrage? Wait, I take it back - after all, the Republicans never object to arming their friends at taxpayer expense.
NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON.

Insurers join in on ACA:
Health care as a human right:
Think Obamacare's not working? Think again:
" the claim that the Affordable Care Act is a job killer flies in the face of reality, as Dan Diamond at Forbes reports: Since the law was signed in March 2010, the economy has added 7.7 million jobs, 982,300 of which are in the healthcare field.
The best estimate of total ACA enrollments continues to come from Charles Gaba (brainwrap) at ACAsignups.net, who estimates a range from 23.6 to 28.2 million gross enrollments."
Obamacare: A complete VICTORY for America. All true patriots agree.
Thank you President Obama!

For the longest time Republicans criticized Obama for not doing enough to secure his release. Once he did it, they criticized for doing so.
As always, nobody flips flops more than do these delusional Republicans.

LOL! Right winger again loves to engage in holier-than-thou Bible thumping but forgets that his own Holy Book demands, "judge not lest ye be judged".

Funny how the delusional right wingers accuse liberals of causing abortion when Roe was decided by a Republican majority. The Casey decision affirmed Roe and was decided by a hard core right wing Supreme Court.
It should also be noted that prior to the ACA enactment 45,000 Americans used to die every year due to lack of health care insurance. This holocaust was caused by right wing Republicans with a few DINOcrats.
Therefore, it is the pro death wrong ... oops, the right wing that has caused these deaths.

''Obama: 'There Are Still No Death Panels. Armageddon Has Not Arrived.' 'Time To Get Over It'''
"There are still no death panels. Armageddon has not arrived," Obama said. "The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay."
Obama Tells GOP: Time To Get Over ObamacareTouting the news that Obamacare had reached 7 million sign-ups, an almost unthinkable achievement so soon after the law's disastrous October launch, President Barack Obama sent a direct message Tuesday to Republicans and their efforts to stymie the law: Get over it.
"The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay," Obama said Tuesday in the White House Rose Garden. "In the end, history is not kind to those who deny Americans basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America's progress or our people. That's what the Affordable Care Act represents."
The president's remarks followed an unprecedented flurry of good news this week for the law and its supporters. Enrollment beat the Congressional Budget Office's original projection, which had been revised down after HealthCare.gov website flopped in the fall. The Los Angeles Times estimated that 9.5 million previously uninsured people had been covered. A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that support for Obamacare broke even for the first time.
"This law is doing what it's supposed to do. It's working. It's helping people from coast to coast. All of which makes the lengths to which critics have gone to scare people, or undermine the law, or repeal the law... so hard to understand," Obama said. "I don't get it. Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance?"
ACA = Savings BILLIONS of dollars and thousands of lives.

Contrary to the incessant lies from the hate filled and emotional far right, ACA is working:
'' A government report released yesterday detailed how the U.S. economy is already benefiting from the law: by driving up personal income and consumer spending. Between Medicaid expanding to cover millions more low-income people, and families who bought private insurance on the exchange and took advantage of the law’s generous tax credits, the ACA contributed a $33.9 billion jump in personal income for January alone.
Think about that for a second — a $33.9 billion jump in personal income in the first month of the law’s full implementation.
The report also found a bigger than expected increase in consumer spending as well — about $45.2 billion total for the month. The Wall Street Journal looked at the report and said that about three-quarters of this surprisingly positive growth came from those benefiting from the ACA.''
Billions more into the economy and thousands of lives saved -- Thank you President Obama!

There is one VERY serious flaw in this article and in the many pro war posts above - Russia did NOT invade Ukraine. If you troubled yourselves to read the news, you would know Crimeans took a democratic vote to secede because part of the Ukrainian government has a historic fascist bent.
Please re-write the article, put in a new title, and revise all the posts to comply with the facts rather than the emotionalism shown by the writer and the right wingers here.

"they didn't permit killing of innocent babies"
How the heck can you make a statement like that? What the heck do you know about the frequency of abortion historically?
The correct answer is that under the Anglo-Saxon common law abortion WAS legal. See Blackstone's Commentaries and his illustration of "quickening". The Roe v Wade decision was based on this and was therefore a correct legal decision.

Liberals are intolerant while right wingers are angels?
Anyone here old enough to remember MyCarthyism? Remember when the Dixie Chicks said something about Bush and how the rabid right wing threatened to kill them and their families? Or how about when members of the Congressional Black Caucus where silenced by Republicans in Congress?
By contrast, did anyone stop the Tea Baggers and their vicious attacks on President Obama? Did Congressional Democrats ever keep white Republicans from shooting their mouths? Drunken Country-Western singer Hank Williams, Jr called President Obama a Nazi and a Muslim president. Yet his music has not been censored and he still goes around making vicious attacks in his concerts.
So who are the ones that are the real intolerant extremists in this society? Obviously it is the wrong wing ... oops, the right wing.
