GOP Donors Revolt Against Republican-Led Government Shutdown

GOP Donors Revolt Against Republican-Led Government Shutdown | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Republican donors are pushing back against the Tea Party-led shutdown—and some are withholding funds. By David Freedlander.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

It was bound to start. The money wing of the GOP is getting fed up with the extreme right wing. How will this play out? But the really crucial question is still to my friends who vote Republican and who are rational if more conservative than I, "Are you taking part or are you letting the extreme edge of your party take over?"

Final Word On Obamacare Coverage: Cheaper Than Expected

Final Word On Obamacare Coverage: Cheaper Than Expected | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Though there will be variations across the country, most Americans will be able to choose from multiple health insurance plans and pay lower-than-expected premiums for coverage on the Obamacare health insurance marketplaces, according to data...
Kenneth Weene's insight:

So ObamaCare may be saving people money, lots of money, making sure they have health care, encouraging prevention instead of just treatment, allowing those with serious illnesses to have insurance and to have it cover more than a million dollars, and allow kids to stay on their parents insurance longer. I can see why people would hate that --- NOT !

Mob attacks Russian Embassy in Tripoli; revenge suspected

Mob attacks Russian Embassy in Tripoli; revenge suspected | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Gunmen stormed the Russian Embassy in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, on Wednesday night, scrambling over the walls of the compound, tearing down the Russian flag and opening fire on cars and buildings, Russian and Libyan news agencies reported.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I don't like to see this kind of upheaval anywhere, but it does point out something that many Americans tend to forget--we are not the only major country in the world, not the only country with embassies to attack and not the only one with a real role in helping the world to work. Russia, Britain, Germany, China, even France: they all have to be part of solutions and part of discussions. And other countries like Brazil, India, and Turkey may need being added to that list. The USA should not think of itself as the world's policeman.
