  • Is a class action lawsuit a possiblity?

    Vanity
    As the report goes that so many have lost their plans, had drastic price increases and losing their doctors/amenities they had with their previous plans, is it possible for those to come together, base on the vocal promises the occupant of the white house made and file a class action lawsuit against Obama's government and stop this? Don't know-just asking?

    11/18/14 | conservativesister
    Since all Democrats think everyday ordinary people can't function without government sticking their nose into everyone's life, and making decisions for them, it is now time to change the name of the Democratic party to THE GRUBERS. Meet someone and talk politics: are you a Republican or a GRUBER? Talk about a political race: are they a Republican or a GRUBER? Ask someone how they voted: did you vote for the Republican or GRUBER? Don't let this opportunity to nail the GRUBERS to the wall. It's time to get them out of our business!

  • One reason to vote for Romney

    07/10/2012 3:25:49 PM PDT · by conservativesister · 56 replies
    There's more than voting for Romney at stake. If Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will support his candidacy. For those who may have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind: 1. Justice Scalia just turned 78 2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year 3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August 4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago. Whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court, in addition...

    I saw the ads yesterday about Obama saying the private sector is doing fine and the rebuttal from the private sector about being out of work, losing homes and money. The next ad should be "his 100 golf outings and her vactions" on the taxpayer's dime while the "private sector" Americans don't even have money for vacation. That would really resonate and put in perspective the out of touch the White House residents: Obama's that just seem to be "movin' on up!"

    WHAT happens to the line of succession to the Presidency IF the sitting president is found ineligible as in a scam? I understand under "normal" circumstances, next would be the Vice-President, then the Speaker of the House, then the Secretary of State. BUT...... How could Biden be eligible if the whole thing was illegitimate? How could they drop to Boehner if the democratic party was elected? Just who has the final say in a situation like this? Overheard this conversation last night and what a heated discussion - I thought FREEPERS know, I'll ask.

    I'm hearing stories of people stranded with NO HEAT and NO HELP. Is anyone on here from the affected areas or has contact with those in WV TN KY? The news media has just dropped this story and I'm really concerned about people freezing to death, that would be just horrible. I understand FEMA has yet to show up. Can anyone confirm?
