No protections for those that shrieks obscenities and the clause to discern speeches that invokes clear and present danger are there. This just lacks bold enforcement. Governments are scared of crazy Americans' revolts and teachers fear students. Of course the rest of the world looks down on us. We lack culture, sophistication and moderation.
So requirements for obtaining Obamacare is basically asking us to be a bit...poor? Having national healthcare is the same as not having one because only the basics are paid. Honestly, my insurance company can do just about the same thing and I don't mind the bills if they can cover for EVERYBODY part I injured.
The figures are not up to what was predicted because the people lose trust in such a brittle plan. Its new, disorganized and made with haste, those who signed up stopped midway because they were informed of its problems or because they thought about how the elites' not getting proper pay might trickle down to their jobs.
Some States deny the confirming of marriage benefits for homosexual couples. Personally, I find this a little funny, because the article notes that these States want to "uphold their integrity". Uhm, what sort of integrity? That homosexual marriages are not....marriages- that is, believed by the people and conservative state legislators? I can't figure out this lame excuse of "integrity", because really, refusing to accept other people's decisions are no sort of integrity. (Feeling neutral about gay marriages does not mean I fervently support it).
Religious or not. Law or not. Who cares?! If people's lives are clearly at risk, why are such practices disputable? It's apparent that if people are not professional at handling dangerous animals, do not do so. Period. Why is the government dragged into this? and why is this stupid minister leading a blind crowd?
Almost 100% of politicians are involved in the practice of twittering. It's another way to rant, complain and tattle tale through personal media. There's no way for policies to restrain politicians from interracting with the public through media. Politics can now reach out to the lazy, young generations and plus they can control the news they want to put out individually.
Booker becomes a Senator (not a Representative in which the House is significantly more diverse). He doesn't have much of a political past but he did graduate from Yale and he's black and he's young. Great publicity really. But the matter at hand is minority groups in America have gradually risen. :)
Video on msnbc.com: Critical questions are being raised about data safety in light of hacking reports and news about NSA data collection. NBC’s Stephanie Gosk explains what happens after you hit ‘send’ on an email message.
Insights on how an email is processed. With major search engines like Yahoo and Google, who knows if they're monitoring our emails. They claim our emails are stored in a "cloud" but we don't know that. But honestly, who in the world cares? Unless a person is doing something illegal, people shouldn't be worried of their emails being read. What would they read our emails for anyway?
DeMint believes that ObamaCare does more good than bad and supporters don't seem to understand the consequences it will carry. They want benefits for them and for others from low income households and yet they have no idea what kind of benefits they will receive. Because this new system is designed to accomodate all U.S citizens, it is obviously a cheap system. The wealthy are still able to afford better health care, as a result this gap in the social status and quality necessities money can buy is unending.
Despite this...I am still unsatisfied with rejections to the new system. I can't put off what Obama said about "health care reform needs to happen now, it cannot wait." We have lived through several depressions and we've overcome it all. Surely this cannot kill our status as the number one economically efficient nation in the world. Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan all have national healthcare - not to mention 3 of them are of the "Four Tigers of Asia". They must be doing something right...if they can do this, so can we.
The complexity of the Madisonian architecture purposes that the game of politics is complicated, intricate and "deprived any of them of the power to impose its will on the others". Yet this exists as the factor that ties the Tea Party and Obama together. Both so headstrong in their perception, neither agree to settle for a joint compromise. Obama wants a health care that is absent of the Madisonian politics "unblemished by any messy legislation". The Tea Party, also, refuses to practice politics.
Video on msnbc.com: NBC’s Kate Snow spoke with CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin about the debt ceiling and what happens if Congress fails to raise that limit so the government can borrow more money to pay its bills...
Why does our national debt ceiling affect our relationship with global economy? Because every country out there has a treasury that are linked to one another, if they suspect that we may not have the necessities to pay them back, it will result in a weakened confidence they have with us and a weakened confidence we have of ourselves. We can't keep borrowing money if we are unable to pay it back. The treasury department receives billions every month but it comes in unclear amounts and at unusual times. If such money affects the government, it will affect us. Some politicians convince us that they can "prioritize spending" but the treasury dept doubts it. The Republican-citizens want to believe that the treasury has enough for the nation to get by, says the treasury is buying. If the States default on its debt, our investors will make us pay higher interest rates. If the States have to pay more, we will have to pay more taxes or the States will give out less services/funds. Treasury claims that they don't have any money left. If we pass our debt deadline, our benefits will be cut off. Some advise that we should make paying our investors back our first priority and not paying Social Security.
I don't mind. If this will help my familes, peers, communities from getting bombed upon, I give them permission to spy on us. If we don't know the surveillance staffs are giggling or criticizing us as they listen then ignorance is bliss (the only time I will ever say that).
Enrollment is low for the Affordable Healthcare and Demos are planning to ditch Obama. His top aides suggested cancellation but maybe Obama is saving face, he doesn't think the plan will dry up...oh but it might just will.
A bus driver for the Burnsville school district was fired last week for leading kids in Christian prayers on his bus, even after he was warned to stop — a move he considers a violation of his freedom of speech...
Did not say anything about the pastor forcing anything on the kids. However, as much as I oppose inhibition of rights to practice religions, this pastor could obviously not keep his intentions to himself.
I can't understand this government's "endorsement of religion". Does the free excercise clause only pertain to prohibition of enacting a single religion? Does it exclude the right to be proud of having a religion? Would it be distasteful if a teacher wear a rosary? As long as a religion is not enforced upon the unsastisfied individual, then let the government and its civil servants be humans with religions (practice as they so choose to).
I can see how this irritates people but not enough to ....offend them. Seriously? Who cares if people are praying, "beginning legislative meetings with Christian prayers" is a practice done by Christians (if they're so fervent, FOR CHRISTIANS. If you are not a part of that group, then shut them out and look bored. 1st Amendment protects freedom of religion, so are judges and politicans not the people? Getting upset over such trivial matter, beliefs inherent in a faith BELIEVED by THE PEOPLE --is in itself a discrimination. I refuse to pity those that feel "outcasted", if you're so bold on nonconforming, you're expected to be 'strong' when people practice their religions. Not weak and complaining all the time.
Kind of a biased article. Catalogued how Obama managed to screw up his second term by promising to have more actions and less talk (as they've always done) but he ended up swallowing his words. Wasting huge national sums on....gun control (because a crazy dude killed 20 elementary kids)...really how hard is gun control that you have to spend so much on it. In his second reelection, he stated that he wanted to focus more on immigration laws. Wait, I haven't heard anything significant about such matters. Ah well, I guess he's trying to save the economy. No, not happening either, because he came up with a very smart plan, the National Healthcare (no really, its a very merciful plan but it needs MORE planning yeah?) and that basically screw up another large chunk of dough. Oh boy, I guess he still has his Congress to help him out. NOPE they're full of Republican babies. Then Obama wanted to help out with Syria, asking Putin to withdraw their rejection but Snowden is stuck in Russia, revealing unwanted, embarassing government documents. Obama is at a standstill.
Congressional approval rating is down to 12% approved due to the Repubs' demand for a shutdown and the Demos' disorganized healthcare bill. Guesses for the coming House election has Demos and Repubs on an equal stand, Demos leading by only 8%. Who's to say states are getting ready to shift colors. 8% is nothing to give the wins to Demos. The healthcare bill doesn't seem to work itself out anytime soon, and as laid offs increase, the anger for govt shutdown decreases over time. I don't see any faction in the lead, the 48 to 40 percent will equal out quite soon.
Despite Ryan's and Murray's differences in budget planning, both are trying to work it out and have a more friendly discussion. Both have amazing stats and well developed plans but they are loyal to their parties and that is an issue in trying to get things done.
Even after the civil war, idiots are still talking about the need to secede from the union. As impossible as that sounds, it has been a recurring topic for decades. Big states with small populations feel their voices have not been heard by the government as cities gets the presidential campaigns and government monitoring. Instead of protesting or trying to increase their low popularity like normal Americans, they chose to make themselves noticeable with threats of secession.
The gerrymandering of districts are not our greatest concerns since we polarize our views more than the government secretly make us seem like we do. The media is one to persuade us and we tend to not challenge it. The bias nature of humans will accept what is there and the media will leech off of this vulnerableness, adapting to our likes and dislikes, providing us with informations that will bend to our inclinations. We implement selective reading on complex matters to oversimplify it, we are choosy over things we cannot understand and it's a great humiliation to have the government take avantage of this..
Speaker John Boehner is uneasy on the thoughts of government shutdown but the Republicans are refusing to budge. They would not stand the passage of ObamaCare and the Republican Conservatives demand a few days of withdrawal. To be sure, after this is a debacle among the people who will take this into their own hands and respond to the childish government by voting yes on ObamaCare which I feel should be fine with revisions. We are sure to pay higher taxes and experience loss of employments for a couple of years but...free medical benefits are forever.
Video on msnbc.com: The age-old practice of politicians re-drawing Congressional districts to find friendly voters, or, gerrymandering, has allowed members of the House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle to stay in power regardless of...
The first practice of corruptionally reddistricting originated from founding father Elbridge Gerry in 1812, when he attempted to win votes for his party. Because the shape of the district looked like a salamander, the term Gerrymandering was created. Districts from then on take on unsually shapes-distorted images for distorted representatives. The Democratic authority was suddenly switched to Republic power in the 20th century and although Republicans are famous for Gerrymandering, Democrats are also at fault. "Politicians choose their constituents more than their constituents choose them". It's ridiculous that the Supreme Court will eventually let cases like this slide when district shapes are beyond ordinary, it is obvious that Supreme Judges may also be bias in such matters.
