What You Get When You Try To Register For Obamacare


  1. Removing the handles from the water fountains was mean, intentional, and childish. Everything this administration has done has been selective and intentional. One would think the voting public would see this and turn on the Democrats. Hopefully this will happen.

    Right Truth

  2. I realize there's probably dozens of posts on this already but I thought this piece deserved a thread of it's own.
    Regarding Obama shutting down thr Parks, and Monuments. Authority is a very dangerous thing.
    There were thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours a tour group, which included many senior citizens and visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, they were all locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.
    The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees. one was overheard saying that this looked like Gestapo tactisc!
    Let this sink in. Tyranny has come to America, we’re under attack from the inside!
    If there a bigger fool and idiots on this planet than Obama, I have yet to see or hear him.
    All these things will be remembered. The People won't forget the abuse. There will be a reckoning. So enjoy your Entitlement Mooching and Bootlicking while you still can.

    Since the Parks department falls under the executive branch, you can't blame the GOP for this in any way shape or form. It all falls under Obama. Quite a coincidence that in 17 government shut downs, this is the first time our National Mall was shut down, and they miraculously opened it up for protestors wanting to make illegals illegal but Veterans who visited the Vietnam memorial were jailed.

  3. Poor Obama, his approval ratings continue to plummet, I guess the "it's my way or the highway" approach and his unwillingness to even negotiate is not working. Over the last three days AP, Gallup, and Reuters have issued polls that show Obama's approval numbers dropping 8%, 16%, and 14% respectively.
    And Putin's numbers keep increasing! Maybe we elected the wrong Communist in 2012!


  4. Why do people hate Liberals? This question is frequently posed by bloggers. It’s really about political philosophies., It’s asked on this board generally more than in others . Just a scan back of the last few pages in this blog and you’ll find these adjectives attributed to alleged "liberals" and their aliases “progressives”
    The adjectives I would use to beat describe these people are as follows.
    "arrogant", "spew lie after lie", "gullible", "blame everyone else", freeloaders,"ends justify the means", "know it all freeloaders" and of course "libtards", “whack jobs” "Liberalism is all about being stupid, ignorant, lazy, and good for nothing anchors on society. The only work a liberal does is steal from people and whine and complain about their shitty little lives". -- and that's just this blog; we could fill the page with the vitriol from countless other blogs. Also a perfect description of the current administration and the imbeciles that populate it, especially the dimwit in chief..

  5. Obamacare is doomed, dooooomed I say!.....
    Forever you Obama will be blamed for the misery of Obama-care, and you know how people love to bitch about medical care and access and all you've got now is chaos and failure with the plan...
    What has Obama done to help the middle class?
    Their taxes went up due to Obama letting the Bush Tax Cuts end.
    If you are a member of a Union, Obamacare is going to have a negative impact on your current Health Care.
    Corporate America will not have to adhere to Obamacare for a year. Congress and there staff
    as well as appointed officials are exempt from Obamacare.
    However, the middle class gets no relief from Obamacare. Are you happy that you voted for Obama? Has your life gotten better?
    Democrats have no shame, the Clintons, Reid, Pelosi and Obama have proved that, and the list goes on and on.

  6. Obama and the Park Service work for us. Put the damn handles back you bunch of cry babies.

  7. Yad, yada, yada, wingnuts blaming Obama for what the GOP did. Americans are seeing right through it and the GOP rating is the lowest. Ever.

  8. Every time there's a shooting, liberals run around saying this proves we need more gun laws. I ask liberals over and over how exactly you are going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals every time you say you want more gun laws.
    In particular, address given that drugs are illegal, and yet any parent knows any kid can get as much pot as they want. There are millions of guns in the US, millions more in the world. So don't just say more laws, explain how more laws are going to actually work.
    You liberals, love to squark about how Republicans are murdering people by not passing more laws, but when they get a chance to address how that's going to work, crickets...The bed wetters on these boards are brainwashed into believing that more laws are what's needed. They're obviously stupid of course, and are just regurgitating the same old crapola that they're programmed to say. It's just easier to pretend it's the Republicans fault, after all that’s what their Leader tells them to say.
    So, liberals, what is “YOUR” plan? Tell us again!
    I didn't ask anyone about "drafting another bill." I asked them to explain their plan.

  9. Listen, the GOP held power from 2001-2007 and could have reformed healthcare the way they think it should be then. Why didn't they ? Instead, you invaded Iraq. Nice priorities. No wonder McCain lost. No wonder Mitt lost. Conservative policies are unpopular, and whining about temporary glitches of websites isn't going to sweep the GOP back into power. Deal with it.
    It's going to get better. There are always glitches, and they will be worked out.

    There's just a lot more demand for Obamacare than anticipated. We liberals knew that there were a lot of people out there needing health insurance, we just didn't realize how many people needed, despite America having "the best health care in the world.
    The wealthy can afford to pay much higher rates, and still live very comfy lives. For some reason, conservatives are very concerned about the well-being of the rich, but never worry about the well being of the poor or the middle class. . The rich will still be rich. The right has convinced itself that liberals are a bunch of confiscatory Marxists who won't be satisfied till the rich are shot against a basement wall ! We aren't communists, we are liberals. And the Right's failure to see the difference is one of the reasons why they've been losing.

  10. What a little naive jackass...... Hey Nostradamus, this isn't about health care you blithering imbecile, it's about insurance.... more like destroying the insurance industry, like Obama has done to the Auto insurance, and like he’s going to do to all of our predicative industries. After that is done you simpletons will import "doctors" from India, and other 3rd world countries to fill the places of all the decent Doctors that will quit. You are really stupid enough to think this is a little game that you and other dipshits like you can win, there are no winners you little naive jackass.!
    Vote Democrat - It Is Easier Than Working

    1. Funny, under Obamcare insurance companies are still able to make their millions.

      What what prey tell did he do to 'auto insurance?'

      Vote Republicon - It's easier than thinking

  11. Except for the very wealthy, higher insurance premiums will result in less disposable income. Think of the domino effect. It's a vicious cycle.

    In this household, Mr. AOW was paying almost $1000/month for health insurance with no pharmacy coverage and a high deductible this situation last for 30 months after his stroke of September 15, 2009. Guess what? We bought very little. Once he got Medicare, his premium dropped to less than $150 month; at that point we made purchases that could be considered drivers of the economy -- including a large one, the handicapped van.

    I know several other households in the same situation.

  12. If you have read some of the Liberal - Progressive’s blogs, I’m sure that you will agree that the most vile and vicious comments come from the left. The non thinking free loading good for nothings demand a free ride until they realize there is no more free ride. .
    Frankly, if we are going to ever clean out America I think we need to start with the Liberals. We need to ship them out to some Communist country where they belong and where they will be happy. We conservatives are the first to volunteer to fight for our country and what do we get for it, the libtards and our own Dear Leader want us to be treated as Domestic Terrorists! This is what this country has come to! Is this why I served my county for, to be called a “Domestic Terrorists” ? I feel as if I am threatened by my own President. And this sniveling little coward George Whyte who seems to make these anti republican remarks all over the place while hiding behind his computer is such a coward, he’s just a vile, twisted, bitter evil little man! You can see why Libtards like him are not just un-American, but downright ANTI-American!! It's him and mentally deranged idiots like him that give aid and comfort to our enemies and bash Israel for daring to defend it's citizens from continued terrorist attacks!
    I’d like to see him in a uniform in combat. He's Irrelevant! Go away little man.

  13. How Do You Define Liberals vs Conservatives?

    A Conservative is a Liberal who's been, mugged,and burglarized, twice.


  14. What's humorous about the typical tyrant, bleeding heart, rabid libtard who refuses to let anyone else express a contrary opinion? Most libtards only use humor to attack those who do not agree with them. Libtards care more about hugging trees and saving owls facing the mass genocide of unborn babies. That type of lunacy is tragicomical. Keep hugging the Trees, and protesting, and marching with candles while ignoring you own Government picking your pocket and destroying our wonderful Country.
    Sometimes that means dissent or questioning the direction we are going as a nation. Other times it means fighting hard for what I believe in.
    Unfortunately most people are easily manipulated by freebees and false promises...
    I believe in the Constitution. I believe in the promises it holds and I will continue to fight tooth and nail for it.

  15. Rush Limbaugh recently said that, if he were President Barack Obama, he would not want to face a staunch conservative such as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin because she carries a frightening message, and that anyone that runs against her should Fear her —

    Fear her? Look, I think it's GREAT that she became a multi-millionaire by parading her UN-MARRIED Teen-age pregnant daughter around and acting as if that showed what a great parent she was. Lemons to lemonade and all that.
    But FEAR? Seriously, when SNL doesn't have to change a single word in an interview to get laughs, that's not fear, buddy.
    God bless her and her family. And I'm sure she'll be good for as many laughs as Michele Whackmann when she runs for senator in AZ.

    Fear her? Because she is an absolute buffoon. She has no credibility anymore. Anyone claiming that liberals are scared Of her because she is telling the truth is delusional. I was scared because she was that close to being president, and is one of the biggest imbeciles to ever grace the political scene.

    ANYTIME the Republicans want to run Sarah Palin, I am all for it.
    Fear her? We BEG her to run..

  16. Have you heard that the Marxist Liberal Jackass Piers Morgan is losing his show!
    No offense to England but Instead of his going back to "America Got Talent", I hope that he goes back to England instead and stay there! His Anti-American view points and opinions are not wanted here at all. We have enough leftist, Marxist, Socialist and Communist to deal with already. You are one freaking less! Go home to England! And maybe if we are lucky he’ll take Oprah and the gang from “The View” with him!

  17. Hillary “ What Difference Does It Make?”Clinton the women who left 4 American Men behind to die in Benghazi, is on a “Blame Bush” tour again!
    What Difference Does It Make Hillary? It matters because you and the president LIED to the people of the United States! Holy Cow these people are really delusional.

  18. So “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has decided to move its media offices to London, following a Cairo court decision”
    Congratulations to Egypt for doing the right thing. Does this mean that obama won't be welcome there anymore?
    In my opinion, The Muslim Brotherhood os just another term for Nazi's
    By the way what’s with the relationship with Huma Abedin Hillary Clinton’s close aide and the Muslim Brotherhood ? And how come she’s married to a Jewish guy?
    How can someone who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood have access to the highest level of classified documents and information?
    The Islamist Journal the newspaper of the Muslim Brotherhood and it was edited by Abedin’s father, Syed Abedin and is now edited by her mother, Saleha WHO IS A MEMBER OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
    Huma Abedin worked for a journal that promotes Islamic supremacy for years. The journal was funded by a top Al Qaeda financier named Abdullah Omar Naseef. This Islamist headed the Muslim World League. So INQUIRING MINDS WANTS TO KNOW, WHAT’S THE STORY HERE?

  19. Yes AOW, We have now sunk to a depth! Indeed. ........
    We have now sunk to a depth when Michele Bachmann pointed out this story about Abedin’s Mother and father’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Which is a FACT and all the Libs have to say about it is that “this woman is fruitier than a nutcake! Very clever indeed.


  20. Please help protect and defend our brave veterans who risked their lives for our freedom - and now are being barred from visiting the memorials erected to honor their deeds.

    In a mean-spirited fit of selfish anger, Barack Obama - who never wore a uniform in his life other than Islamic garb - has shut down our nation's war memorials. And he has declared open war on our honored veterans!

    Stand up.
    Stand up for our Veterans.
    Stand up to Tyranny.
    The World War II memorial ... the Vietnam Veterans Memorial ... the Korean War Veterans Memorial - Obama has shut them all down to force his will on the House of Representatives and frankly, to get revenge on the American people who oppose Obamacare and his other naked power grabs.

    Let's put it plainly: Barack Obama is behaving like a vicious tyrant. And if he succeeds in this assault on the democratic system, the Republic we love is at mortal risk. It's just that simple.

    That's why I am asking you now to take two decisive moves to show Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi - and all of their oppressive ilk in Washington - that "We the People" are still in charge. And we won't rest until we take back our memorials and monuments!

    1. First, I would like you to Sign the Petition to re-open the war memorials.

    Once your name is on that important petition, it will be delivered to every member of the Senate and the House and we will even put it on the White House website!

    And then join with the million other patriotic Americans who are determined to unblock our nation's war memorials. Ideally if you can make it, come to WWII Memorial in Washington D.C. to make the loudest statement, but if you can't join one of these other rallies around the country.

    Join along with veterans who are determined to once again fight for freedom - this time on our own Mall!

    I know that, like me, you are outraged by the senseless closure of our national war memorials. Many of these memorials are open 24 hours per day, seven days a week with little or no staffing and were paid for with taxpayer funds.
    You and I - and especially our brave veterans -- have a right to visit these sacred places and pay respects to those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

    Stand up.
    Stand up for our Veterans.
    Stand up to Tyranny.
    Be Counted as one of us who want to tell Obama that we are not going to take his CRAP any longer.
    Yet, we watched in shock last week as our brave Vets - many in wheelchairs -- had to "storm" their own war memorials - monuments that were already paid for with their blood, sweat and tears. And we saw with our own eyes what a vicious tyrant Obama has become.

    Now, it is time for us to rise up and take back our war memorials from a petulant president who is holding them hostage to his own selfish demands.
    He is using our memorials to work his wicked will.
    And it's time for us to turn out en masse to tell him NO!

    1. Why not rise up against the party who choose to close these down; the GOP? No, instead you believe the lies from the right. Lemming.

  21. America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him.

    He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress.

    He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people.

    The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards.

    I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor.
    But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000.

    The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding.

    “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times.

    The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn’t use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one.

    I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor.

    However the shutdown ends, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington. When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation.

    Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president.

  22. I have always loved octopuses til lately when I read some of the GARBAGE over at the Cesspool known as Progressive Eruptions. Yuck!

  23. Amen to the above.... Don't these people realize that their "wonderful" president is doing more harm than good.
