Obamacare is not "FREE" health care

People have finally realized that the word “free” is nowhere to be found in Obamacare’s “ Affordable Health Care Act”. Coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law won't be cheap. A study released Thursday by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation found that government tax credits would lower the sticker price on a benchmark "silver" policy to a little over $190 a month for single people making about $29,000, regardless of their age. For uninsured people who are paying nothing today, this is still a big cost that they're expected to fit into their budgets.

moderation...if we care for our animals they will care for us...except for maybe reptiles. they are just too cold-blooded to care. 8-)

Stillhere...sadly there are too many mudholes in our society that need stomping til dry. it is unusual to pick up a paper..(that sounds odd to say these days) and read about a parent or someone abusing or taking the life of a child. i can't comprehend what stimulus it would take to do that sort of thing. i did not take what you wrote as personal by any stretch of the imagination. one thing that is certain is that as much as we hold dear the sanctity of life, we would be remiss to not acknowledge that the world will go on without us or anyone else.

Speaking of speculation on what level of 'gratitude' a critter may experience,as a result of a positive human action,I have to say, my dogs chose to nap close to the fire last night,and rejected several offers to go outside into the frigid air.Even our in and out house cat became scarce at the offers.I can't say how grateful they may have been, but they made the same choice I would have made, gratefully.

Understand my use of pronouns, I didn't mean you abuse either.

You abuse animals or children and I have no use for you

I believe Gods harshest punishment is reserved for those that abuse animals, I really do. We are placed in dominion over the beasts of the field but we are to care for them without fail. Any kindness show to animals is NOT wasted.

i understand what you are saying. it reminds me of a conversation i had with a dear friend the other day. i mentioned that i had discovered a unique way of heating my cats food prior to serving outside. he stated that in his opinion, it did not matter and that the actions i took were more to satify my feelings of what the cat would want verses what the cat would actually need. i think what he said is true to a certain extent. we humanize so many things in this life to appease our own sensibilities rather than allowing nature to run its course. although...truth be known...my cat seems to appreciate the effort i expend in heating up its food...or maybe i am just assuming she does. either way it works for me.

Lost birds live a long life in retirement after they pass thier productive years, the only sin is attacking the boss, with that you will not see the sun set that day!

The chickens I raise and keep live very well unlike those poor things that live at egg or meat farms

Absolem I have no issue with taking game or livestock to feed my family, I don't enjoy it but know that it's the cycle of life. My point is that I can have these birds and they can live happily free ranging about my place and they can still be productive and valuable without slaughter. If needed I will harvest them for food, just don't enjoy that aspect

stillhere...interesting statement. it got me thinking...which is not only dangerous but tends to distract me from many tasks at hand. nonetheless, the concept of death or dying could simply be a change in the state of matter and the loss of the resultant perceived effect from a particular state of being. death and rebirth represent the pinnacle of recycling. concerning life and death...."don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened".

Very few things feed you without having to die

Mod is correct, chickens are the hardest working livestock one can have
