Blowhards (Overbearing False Experts): Heaven help the team with the blowhard. Blowhards know absolutely what needs to be done, with no ifs, ands, or buts. Their way is the only way because they are the experts and you and the other team members are mere peons who don’t really understand the complexities of the situation in the way they do. They will seldom even entertain others’ ideas, and will quickly put them down as silly, misdirected, and wrong. If you don’t do it their way, they will often go off and sulk in the corner and refuse to have anything to do with the team. Often, they don’t even recognize the impact of their behavior, as they are so damn certain that they are right and everyone else is wrong. Blowhards suck the air out of brainstorming discussions or attempts to think creatively.

If it wouldn’t be so disastrous, the Pubbies would be well-served by letting it run for a year. But the country wouldn’t be well-served.

If it finally wakes America up to how utterly incompetent this government is, then yes, I guess something good can come out of it.

How come 0 is so set on grabbing every body’s gun, claiming that 70-80% of Americans want beefed up gun laws and he turns around as says that we're getting BOHICA’d with obamacare even though 60-70% of Americans don't want it?

The best way to fix a broken system is to SHUT IT DOWN, and THEN fix it.

Newt SHUT DOWN the US Federal Government in the 1990’s and it WORKED!

The Liberal Agenda Media and the Democrats boo-hooed to this day, but Newt achieved success.

_____________________

The only way to force a spoiled brat to behave is to punish, punish, punish.

The worst punishment that a Democrat, or RINO can imagine is to take away their ability to spend our tax dollars.

The best way to do that is to shutdown the non-essental parts of the US Federal Government, starting with mothballing Air Force One.

sometimes folly has to fail good and hard before fools (and there are plenty of them on this scene, not all being of the estimable donkey party) learn wisdom.

i read this through spiritual eyes now. a good God has never gone on vacation. but sometimes we wrap ourselves up in blindness. and so God says go ahead play blind mans buff if you must, till you get tired of conking your head on the wall.

my question is what in hell (literally) are we revering here? this system isn’t going to share the blessings of God any better. it is going to exalt godless government. and “godful government” isn’t a much better thing to exalt either... it’s God himself that deserves the exaltation and who will bring great power again if exalted.

If it is so good, why the exemptions?
If good for one, it should be good for all. No one escapes or is exempt!
Make all partake and you will see it removed quickly!

the “exemptees” won’t be able to escape the folly either. it’s going to greatly hobble the rewards system by which those who generated good new treatments would be encouraged to continue in that vein. when the USA was the ultimate escape hatch, Britain’s (and Canada’s) folly in this direction wasn’t the ultimate disaster. now we are about to board over the escape hatch!

Well Obamacare has already started to affect me. In 2014 I have lost my 100% coverage plan. Which compared to unions health plans sucked, but at least I only got hit with bills in the hundred dollar range. Next year I get an HRA, where I need to spend $2000 before ay coverage kicks in. My max out of pocket will be $8000. My family does have health issues since we are older, so we will hit the max every year. I work at a major Wall Street bank, so this is hitting main street right now. I do not know how the Democrats are going to hid this and run on this being a great thing. I guess the stupid people will get theirs for free and they will vote for even more free stuff. I know for a fact in Pennsylvania, a crack whore will have free medical care and mine will cost over $10,000 per year. Such a deal!

I remember a Walgreens spokesman saying that he welcomed this, a few years before it happened.

Bet he didn’t think of how this was going to get class warfare going among the rank and file.

Yeah, we’re so wrong the letter I received from my insurer last night is just a figment of my imagination. 33% cuts across the board in my coverage, coupled with a 50% premium increase. Screw that, I’m off this boat.

Which is why Congress and their staffers just LOVE 0bamacare!

0bama is not only a narcissist, he’s a sociopath. I cannot remember a public figure who had such and ability to tell one lie after another with a straight face. And given the competition in Washington DC, that’s saying a lot.

All of those obama loving liberals who would NEVER vote for anyone but a democrat, will think “I must be the only one this is hurting so I’ll support it because it’s good for everyone else.” Just another chance to be a martyr.

Afterall, what is more uppity in the world of “Corporate Jets” than a shiny, “free,” Air Force One?

BTW, what would be a good name for B. Hussein’s Golf cart?

Don’t laugh!

B. Hussein divides his official time equally between sitting in AF1 and sitting in his Golf cart!

Rank has its privileges, and NO ONE is more rank than B. Hussein Obama, aka Harrison J. Bounel, (according to his Soc. Security number).

BTW, BTW, would Harrison J. Bounel, aka Barry Soetoro, have been able to pass the Security Check for entry into the Washington Naval Yard?

I KNOW B. Hussein couldn’t as all of his personal records are sealed - - - - .

Wait till most Americans get the letter from the IPAB stating that they will no longer pay for the treatment that they need.

[Family member] Well doctor, my grandmother has been on that treatment for a week, and its working.
[Doctor] Sorry ma'am, but the IPAB states that grandma gets only three days.
[Family member] What do we do now doctor?
[Doctor] Pray.
