Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

"Scorecard on State Health System Performance, 2014: Commonwealth Fund researchers ranked the health systems of every state and the District of Columbia on a variety of health care measures. Of the 34 measures that could be tracked between 2007 and 2011–12, all states saw meaningful improvement on at least seven. But more than half of states lost ground on at least nine measures."

Scorecard on State Health System Performance for Low-Income Populations, 2013: The first-ever health system performance scorecard focusing on low-income Americans documents sharp disparities between states in the health and health care of the 39 percent of Americans with incomes less than twice the federal poverty level."

Regarding earthquakes, Jesus spoke specifically about them and many other things we currently see, in Matthew 24:6-9.

You're welcome.

Speaking of polls: "According to a new poll taken by the Commonwealth Fund, people enrolled in ObamaCare are satisfied. And yes, that includes Republicans:

Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance. Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before — including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year — were happy with their new coverage. [Commonwealth Fund] "

"From 1978 to 2008, Oklahoma was hit with an average of just two quakes of 3.0 magnitude of greater. As of June 19, 2014, there were 207 such quakes recorded in the state, the USGS said."

I wonder what the frack is going on?

No one cares about the crashed drives, as they pertain to some Koch Brothers 501c applications which were ultimately approved.

The republicans attacked the republicans for voter suppression because it didn't work, not because it's wrong. That is sad but not surprising. I have been alive a long time but never thought I'd see the words econ and fascinating in the same sentence.

The investigations go on as long as the stonewalling continues. The stonewalling continues so Obama administration people can say basically what you just said, "Dude, that was like 2 years ago."

Step one: Feign outrage and promise to get to the bottom of it.

Step two: Stonewall as long as possible.

Step three: "Dude, that was like two years ago." You folks have been investigating this forever. Lets move on.

Yes, lets. Stop stonewalling, miraculously crashing 7 related hard drives, threatening whistleblowers, and lying about it. Then perhaps the investigation can close.

This administration has not been forthcoming on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS, or the NSA, and the AG functions as it's defense council.

Maybe the administration can turn over another 60K blacked out documents, waste gallons of ink, and continue to obfuscate and hide. The most transparent administration ever is opaque. But people can still see straight through to the corruption.

I'm gone for awhile, may not be back until Monday. Immigration discussion later, perhaps.

If anyone has broken any laws they should go to jail. Now with Benghazi Issa has been screaming for months there was a military stand down order given, now military people are declaring this week there wasn't. I'm all for investigations, but when is enough enough? There is no point where people will be satisfied, so on they go forever. You think Gowdy is going to call these military men to speak now that they have declared no one ordered a stand down? And how about the GOP suing the president for something they themselves wanted and voted on? It just goes on and on.

Turning a blind eye to the manipulation of government is the easy way out.

IRS targeting is a classic case. If you don't look for wrong doing, you, of course, will not find wrong doing,(or the lack thereof).

Benghazi, Fast & Furious, VA... If you don't bother to ask the questions then you will really not know and that is very scary.

I suppose, but these laws are being tossed out left and right. Also ironic is that it seems to be mostly red states implementing these laws. And also strange is a top GOP official in Pennsylvania declaring they had just secured the state for Romney after passing their law.

Whatever. It may work for the GOP for a few years, but people will catch up, and they will have to try something else other than finding candidates to appeal to voters.

We have a lot of people crying foul at the prospect of voter ID's, what are they trying to hide?

Acorn was registering dead people for goodness sake. That happens on both sides.

If we don't have a way to examine it, then we will not know if the problem is large or infinitesimal. I, personally think it is vital that we know.

Imagine a Bush supporter in Florida voting in two counties, compound that by a factor of 10 and you have the decision firmly in Al Gore's favor.

Kennedy v. Nixon in Chicago districts.

Those are two monumental examples.

It does not exist until it exists, right? If we have no method of voter verification then you can't make the argument that there is no problem.

We have a lot of problems in this country that "don't exist" because we are not aware of them.

American citizens have the right to vote in American elections. Let's create the metric by which verification can take place, use every method available to get voter ID's into the hands of EVERY eligible voter and see what happens.

It was a solution to a non-existent problem, unless you have an example of an election decided by voter fraud. An no, RS, I do not believe Cochran won by fraud.

I'm all for voter ID cards, the idea that low income citizens can get a Bridge Card but are somehow not able to get a Voter ID card is infantile.

Maybe they could have wheeled the bed down there.

Yep, you can sign an affidavit at the polling place and cast your vote.

I guess you explained how a bed-ridden person on home health care was going to get a picture ID, I must have missed it.

Can't you sign an affidavit if you don't have a picture ID? I think you can.
