    Every time I post that the IRS is clearly forbidden from punishing you for not paying the fine/tax, I get the same fictional responses. Maybe their goal is to make it sound so scary so that Obamacare gets magically repealed(poof) , but given that wont happen anytime soon this misinformation can have the unintended consequence of fooling/scaring people into complying and helping make Obamacare work. I found the section in the bill text and will posted it below as a vanity for future reference skip tp SPECIAL RULES. CHAPTER 48—MAINTENANCE OF MINIMUM ESSENTIAL COVERAGE ‘Sec. 5000A.

    MADISON When youve been in business 75 years, you learn to adapt. So goes the story of the Watertown-based 7-up Bottling Co., a family-owned distributor of carbonated beverages serving a thirsty four-county market in southern Wisconsin. But these days, as sugary drinks get caught in the fire of the War on Obesity, soda distributors like 7-Up Bottling must feel like its got a big red target on its back. We are definitely not the industry that is causing obesity but yet weve got a product that gets blamed for obesity, Tim Schultz, sales manager for 7-Up Bottling Co. told...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said that his chambers immigration bill needs to be improved, but that theres still a chance he could vote for it. Paul said that he could end up backing immigration reform if Senate negotiators will work with him on his push to certify that the border is secure. Paul though warned that the bill also goes in the wrong direction on work visas. I support immigration reform. At this time, I think the bill needs to strengthen border security. It also needs to expand work visas, Paul said on ABCs This Week. I will support a...

    This image taken by NASA's Curiosity shows what lies ahead for the rover -- its main science target, Mount Sharp. The rover's shadow can be seen in the foreground, and the dark bands beyond are dunes. Rising up in the distance is the highest peak Mount Sharp at a height of about 3.4 miles, taller than Mt. Whitney in California. The Curiosity team hopes to drive the rover to the mountain to investigate its lower layers, which scientists think hold clues to past environmental change. This image was captured by the rover's front left Hazard-Avoidance camera at full resolution...

With iPods and iPads; Xboxes and PlayStations;none of which I know how to work, information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than a means of epantsapation (emancipation?).

    The United States Military is in the midst of a troop surge in Afghanistan, but the surge has caused the ratio of resources to troops to widen. Many American Forward Operating Bases are experiencing food and water shortages. Sgt. Hill, whose name has been changed to protect his identity, has been in Afghanistan only a few months as part of the new troop surge into the country. The troops are mainly focused on training and promoting the Afghanistan army and police force. The training is the United States' attempt to "teach a man to fish," in the security department of...

    Black Children Are An Endangered Species (Read WP posts from John Hawkins) | (Read MT posts from John Hawkins) In 1939 (Margaret) Sanger created the previously mentioned "Negro Project," which aimed to get blacks to adopt birth control. Through the Birth Control Federation, she hired black ministers (including the Reverend Adam Clayton Powell Sr.), doctors, and other leaders to help pare down the supposedly surplus black population. The project's racist intent is beyond doubt. "The mass of significant Negroes," read the project's report, "still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negroes....in that portion of the...

Private citizens and retail outlets would be required to dispose of all non-coded ammunition no later than Jan. 1, 2011. Each vendor would record the following information about customers who buy the ammunition: Date, name, driver's license or ID number, date of birth and ammunition identifier.

    ALBANY - If you asked the bloggers yesterday, State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo stepped on a rhetorical land mine when he used the racially charged phrase "shuck and jive" while discussing the Democratic presidential primary in a recent radio interview. Speaking Tuesday to the New York Post's Fred Dicker, whose show airs on Albany's Talk 1300 radio station, Cuomo said of the early primaries: "It's not a TV-crazed race. Frankly, you can't buy your way through." He added later, "You have to sit down with 10 people in a living room. You can't shuck and jive at a news conference;...

This is the all-too-believable plot behind Jodi Cowles novel, "The Minor Protection Act" (TMPA) in which a President of the United States, with help from a slick attorney, gets a bill passed through Congress that has federal agents remove children from their traditionalist Christian homes and families to stop the children from...

They may not have the name recognition that Cindy Sheehan has, but CSPAN viewers have a right (and an expectation) that their voices should carry equal...

Their new cheerleaders, the Vestal Virgins, were so saucy that only night broadcasts would televise their routines. During halftime, faux gladiatorial combats were staged and the winner was granted his freedom by the great emperor, Elvis Impersonatorus. The legions of muted fans sipped on mocha lattes and watched the world's largest keno board between plays. Moreover, as a paean to the great city they now represented, Las...

    Recently, Microsoft has been very averse to giving Vista a firm launch date. Last week, Anders reported that Microsoft's Kevin Johnson only said that Vista would ship "when it is available." Ars was also told that a release date slip of a few weeks wouldn't be surprising. All the ambiguity surrounding Vista doesn't sound very reassuring, and maybe the company would be better off pushing the release date back. According to Robert McLaws of Longhorn Blogs, that's just what Vista needs: more time. Why does McLaws believe that Microsoft should delay the release of Windows Vista? He has four major...

    This is also posted at The Perspective (link above) This morning the city of London was struck by a series of bomb blasts that shut down its transit system.
