    GPO via govtrack. us congress bills site ^ | 10/16/2013 | sickoflibs and text of law
    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 Maybe their goal is to make it sound so scary so that Obamacare gets magically repealed(poof) , but given that wont happen anytime soon this misinformation can have the unintended consequence of fooling/scaring people into complying and helping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.

    Wisconsin Reporter ^ | September 11, 2013 | M.D. Kittle
    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...

    The Hill ^ | 05/26/13 | Bernie Becker
    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...

    May 9, 2010- Obama, during the Hampton University commencement speech stated, "Meanwhile, you're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't rank all that high on the truth meter. 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?). All of this is not only putting new pressures on you; it is putting...

    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...

    Hi all. Excuse my accent. I am wondering why anyone around the world would want to attack us again. We are so lucky to have a muslim president who in 90 days proved that he loves everybody (but Israel and Columbia) who will certainly allow Sharia law everywhere in the US very soon, who sends $900 millions to Hamas and refuse to meet with Bibi - America will be under Muslims rules much faster that even they thought, who just killed any will of success for our CIA et al - who is bankrupting our country, our kids will all...

    According to its sample legislation, manufacturers would be forced to code all ammunition sold in the state. 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. The businesses would maintain records for three years from the date of purchase.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this speech not only needs to be read, but needs to be heard while you read it. It needs to be felt from the heart, as it was given from the heart.

I strongly recommend you open a second window to "http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/ronaldreaganatimeforchoosing.htm" and play the windcows media player to watch and listen to Ronald Reagan give this speech ( 27 minutes 32 seconds long ). You have to go down that link about one page. RONALD REAGAN "A Time for Choosing" Given as...
  • Cuomo's 'shuck and jive' comment spurs controversy

    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;...

    Imagine a world where children are taken from their families in order to stop them from turning their children into terrorists. Now imagine that on the list of potential terrorists whose children must be taken or re-educated are home schoolers, active pro-lifers, and many other average Evangelical Christians. 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...
