Your safe, she’s done, and was great!
What did he say?? Please!
Oh that’s perfect, jenk. Thank you!!!!!!
I am sending this link to myself in FR mail right now.
The Senate bill only exempted TRICARE for Life and Veterans health programs. I don't know what they may have addressed in the reconciliation, however Representative Skelton, Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, says there is no exception in the bill for TRICARE for current active duty military members or military family members, there is no exception for TRICARE Reserve Select, and there is no exception of any TRICARE for military retirees prior to age 65.
All of these categories will be subject to the IRS tax of up to $2,250 per year.
Okay who asked for that last clarification on the rules - a DEM or a Repub? Anyone know.
It was a short segment for Palin. She did in the short time she had.
How about a NEW website that can manage data and cross reference things?
I know. But that post about Steve King was written immediately after. I fairly confident that he was sincere. But whatever does happen....they are going to continue to fight as we all will in our own way. The line has been drawn in the sand and war has been declared openly. We will respond in kind.
Who is the Army Ranger? (Gentleman from KY)
Man after my own heart...
Good. He slandered another member.
I think there's a penalty in there for the top per-patient charging doctors, like in Mediscare.
“Just alerted on FNC. Apparently prayer in D.C. is now illegal.”
Yet muzzies get foot washing stations in public facilities. Ironic and and biased.
Oh,geez—Carla Cameron is on BORing now, looking like the cat that ate the canary. He is such a Dim Dem!
Taking a break to make hubby some dinner and walk the dog. I’ll catch up when I get back.
what did he do? sadly, he is my congress critter :(
when I see a towell head I see a democrat
Yes - thank you.
The scumbag still wouldn’t apologize. Dirtbag.
Our side asked.
Pascale slurred one of ours.
I can rewinde to try to hear what was said.
They did not anticipate parties as such. Shifting factions yes, but not the sort of thing we have now. If it was up to me there would be no recognition of parties in any governmental functions. Let them conduct their own primaries if they wish, but anyone can run in the general election. No "majority leader", no rules whatsoever that recognize the existence of parties.
Parties, particularly the 'Rat part, exist to elect candidates. That's fine as far as it goes, but they should be officially directly recognized.
We got the virtual unknown BO because the 'Rat party saw that having a black candidate would give them, including all those Congressional candidates, a big electoral boost. Otherwise we'd have Hillary.
What the heck did he say? Please someone—a direct quote?
Congratulations! That is quite and achievement.
Thanks Dinah...will relay.
How about a nice Hawaiian Punch!
Our preacher today was talking about how the Jews turned away from God. Even to the point of worshipping false gods and sacrificing their children to the false gods.
God gave them warnings (through the prophets) but they would not listen. Finally, the Jews were sent into exile for 70 years (Babylon). Of course they came out much the better for it. Until they stopped listening again and the process repeated itself.
America is in pretty much the same place. Worshipping false gods (take your pick of several), and sacrificing our children to them.
The part that really bothered me was that you said you and your daughter weren’t “suited” to the military. There’s a big difference between “not suited” and “unable” to serve. And, it sounds that you were unable to serve. No shame in that.
I happen to think that you’re right if you’re saying that some/many people shouldn’t go into the military, but not because they’re not “suited” to the life. I know how much our troops give up to serve, and generally speaking, they do it out of love of country.
It’s coming.....we’re working on it....
Mr. Trop sounds like a very intelligent sort.
It was a short segment for Palin. She did *good* in the short time she had.
Sorry, Capt, for tempting ya! Carry on the fight, bro...
If you’re asking if I think Obama is bad, hell yes. We just cannot continue to loft people like George Bush to spend us into oblivion and smile because he’s on our side.
It would be more appropriate to address this as Congress’ problem but Bush did contribute heavily and that was a tragedy for the nation.
What did the guy say???
Already missing you.
You’re welcome and getting ready to send another text to her and the crowd.
“see what happens when we give the wimmens to right to vote”
Now they’re going to want to send their kids to the same schools yours attend ;-)
I stand with Americans who want the freedome to select their own healthcare! Yes!
WHAT DID HE SAY? PLEASE, SOMEBODY...PLEASE WITH THOSE OF US WHO DIDN’T HEAR WHAT HE SAID THAT WAS SO OFFENSIVE!
Have a cookie, CaptSkip. Or a celery stick with peanut butter and raisins. Or popcorn.
You’re not alone in staying sober. My blood sugar is 225 right now. I guess I’ll get some celery...
Pascrell basically said that the GOP should be ashamed of themselves for trying to scare veterans that they won’t get covered etc. under this bill.
That REALLY pissed off our side- and they asked for that to be stricken from the record because it was dishonest.
- MEanwhile- the FACT is- people like my son who have Tricare will NOT be considered insured- SO- they will have to pay the damn $2,000 fine every year...
You can see why vets are a tad upset...
Talk about bad timing:
Dixie Chicks attempt comback:
Good Luck with that. /s
I am upset about all the special needs kids who will be turned away—unless Sarah Palin runs for President and wins.
Our premiums are $2.477 per month with $5,000 deductibles, each - no kids - I was kind of thinking the same thing. Pay the fine and wait till we need it. Thanks Bam. Wow, why have I been wasting my time opposing this monstrosity?!?!?
I will not be supporting anyone who can support John MeCain.
If you can’t understand why, don’t try to reason with me.
You and I go back a long way. I don’t wish to disagree with you here, but a real Conservative could not back John MeCain for re-election. That’s the long and short of it.
It’s in the works, trying to raise the capital needed to get it up and running - programming alone over 5k....sigh
