    The CBO has come up with some new startling figures on Obamacare they they are just now figuring out. LOL.

    Apparently, by 2016 about 6 million Americans are projected as being in violation of the mandate to purchase health care, which will translate into about $7 billion of tax revenue for the IRS. Of that 6 million about 4.7 will be from the middle class making well below the magical $250,000 mark that seperates the evil money makers from the good money makers who make less than that and the righteous unemployed who are bordering on sainthood.

    This is an example of how Obama lied about not raising taxes on the middle class in his first 4 years. Having said that, what is soooo progressive about this tax? It seems to me that those making $250,000 or above are having to pay the same as someone making $50,000 a year. Has the federal governemnt given up on the middle class? Then again, maybe this is Obama's way of making people more "righteous" by stripping them of their ability to make money, hence killing their love of money which we all recognize as being the root of all evil. Soon, we will have a nation of slave/saints who will well be on their way to paradise when they die.

    I guess he really is the messiah.

    Certain Republicans can go for Obamacare, it will force more people into buying insurance!

    The insurance industry will make big bucks on Obama.

    So what if it the little guy who is paying the price.

    That song reference reminds me that once (Altamont concert) a Hell's Angel stabbed to death a black man who had a gun and who was going to kill Mick Jagger.

    I still don't know what a levee is.

    It sounds like a gas station from the lyrics.

    EDIT - Apparently it's an earthen dam.

    It's a dike. Holds back water (except sometimes during hurricanes in New Orleans).

    Think about Led Zeppelin's When the Levee Breaks.

    If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break, [X2]
    When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay.

    Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan, [X2]
    Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
    Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.

    Don't it make you feel bad
    When you're tryin' to find your way home,
    You don't know which way to go?
    If you're goin' down South
    They go no work to do,
    If you don't know about Chicago.

    Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
    Now, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
    When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.

    All last night sat on the levee and moaned, [X2]
    Thinkin' about me baby and my happy home.
    Going, going to Chicago... Going to Chicago... Sorry but I can't take you...
    Going down... going down now... going down....

    What was this thread about again?

    Where were you when G.W.Bush kept watching something or other on TV for a while even though his aides had told him about Katrina and what levees were?

    I probably heard they had something to do with dykes and thought they meant Lesbians. That's the kind of dyke we're familiar with here in CA.

    Might be, unless they are amateur gynecologists providing a service.

    Probably need a definition of "finger" also.
