Mostly I heard, “If you like your politician, you can keep your politician”.

We didn’t talk about it directly. We did watch “The Magnificent 7”. It was pertinent, in a way.

I spent Christmas with the Eakers.

Obama & many of his policies came up in conversation.
No quotes, this is a family forum.

Watched a lot of Duck Dynasty too.

For twenty-four glorious hours, the name of the illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper was not uttered a single time.

We were watching Man of Steel. Even the kids liked it. With our rightwing crowd, if anyone bought Odumbocare up would automatically be strangled with Christmas lights.

It was a topic of discussion, but it most certainly was NOT talked up.

It was brought up—

My brother is dying of kidney disease..
we are in Minnesota- his employer is making him get
a new policy...

Not sure if his treatments are going to be covered!
says he is basically working - and ALL his money goes
to pay for his Health care!!-

his 33 year old son- had this stupid grin on his face the WHOLE time- .. yep he is an O’bummer supporter(the son)

Most millenials are clueless- and HEARTLESS

We'd probably have used one of the horses' rope halters for that, but the occasion never came up, except in the context of derision for the neutered pajama boy drone and scorn for the White House usupers.

We did, but the rule was that you couldn’t talk about it without wearing some sort of flannel and you had to have a coffee cup cupped in one hand.

We were pretty much merciless.

We talked about it alright but I don’t think it’s what the queer Marxist Muslim had in mind.

All I said, real casually; was “How about that ObamaCare?”, right after grace. The whole table of eight got very quiet, until I said,”Just kidding!, Some other time, right? NOw how about those Detroit Lions, what kind of year did THEY have in your opinion?” Everybody laughed with relief, my older sister shot me a scolding look. My father, and his Ladyfriend started talking about the latest football game, and play-arguing all at once. The mood of the dinner table lifted back to a more festive moment, no longer verring close to feeling like a trip to the dentist’s office. I wont be doing that again. Apparently, ObamaCare is a ;bad word’ with most people.

That's downright creepy. Was he even listening to his father's plight?

Had a great Christmas dinner!

I am blessed that there is not one single left-leaning person in my entire family tree. None. Not to mention every single one of us has health insurance through OUR JOBS. So it just never came up.

No.

To me, the time was love for Christ, for family, friends, and closer ties with the fellowship in the local assembly. Obama, Obamacure, and all that rancid stuff has already polluted the rest of the year. It has no place where the Lord of Heaven and Earth is to be preeminent, closing off 2013.

Take your suggestions of raking over politimuck to the rest of the worldlings, from my point of view.

No thanks.

Oh, it was “discussed,” though I’m not the one who brought up the topic. The relatives I visit around Christmas are more right-wing than I am.

Actually it was a very relaxing Christmas. Did not think about Barry once. He was off on an Oahu golf course where, for the moment, he could do no more damage.

Actually, we did. My very liberal 27 year old son and 25 year old daughter brought it up with as much venom for Obama as any conservative tea partier I have heard. They hate Obamacare and all it stands for.

(I inwardly smiled just ever so slightly)

Merry Christmas to all

I did. Couple in their late 50s. If they get the 2013 rates with a $5,000 deductible their monthly premium is $550. If they get the Obamacare rates after January 1st, the earliest they can start the policy is January 15 and the rate jumps to $1516 per month. Thank a Democrat! Affordable Care Act my rear-end!

There was another similar thread going on the same topic, but I’m not going to look it up for you.

I didn’t bring Obamacare at the Christmas get together because half of them are too stupid to talk intelligently about it. They got all their soundbites from the drive by media.

I normally don’t expect my 28 yr old daughter to speak in four letter words, but she did use some for 0 bummer care. Her opening statement on one website is “I am a very conservative, hard right leaning southern gal that is probably more conservative than her dad, if that is possible”, so there were no good words for bummer. Guess we raised her right and far right.

Nope- completely clueless.. I think he believes it WAS
the COMPANYS FAULT that they changed insurance!!

SO.... also have a sister in-law.. bigger O’bummer and FRANKEN supporter!!- she announced she would NOT be buying insurance- will wait to they catch her - then pay the fine-
