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.

Stillhere...you are more than that. we all serve a purpose in this thing we call life. we burst upon the scene without choice and are let loose to tend to our endeavors. there is a reason why we are allowed the privilage to perceive the world that was created for our dwelling. that reason is a contentious one to say the least and will not have a definitive answer anytime soon i believe. if a unifying reason exists....i certainly hope it is a pleasurable one.

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.

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.

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".

no...i did not know that. i knew the name but not the breed. my father had chickens growing up...bantys i believe. frankly i have no use for them other than cooking. although, like goats, they would probably be beneficial to the homestead and surrounding natural areas.

how many missions are contained within a war? how many are accomplished and how many fail or are aborted? as many have noted the current President fulfilled...not fully mind you..a mission instituted by your nemesis.

btw...how are the chickens doing?

moderation...no. proposal, model as well as essentially do not constitute the end product that was taken credit for by the president and the democrats. blaming the ideas or actions of others for one's failure is common for this as well as other administrations. i will need to go back and view the law signing photo opps that the President and his co-conspirators enjoyed to ascertain whom took credit for the law. i guess those in the background who were not there would only get the spotlight if this "train" went off the tracks...which it did and has.
