If Janet Yellen is right this will be at least the second longest recovery in US history. Only the Great Depression was longer. It's proof of the conservative assertion that you can't buy your way out of an economic slump. You are far better off leaving things alone and allowing the market place to solve the problems, which history shows is always the preferred method.
What you aren't getting is that Obama and his cronies made the insurance companies and offer they couldn't refuse. i.e you carry the weight of this program, or we will put you out of business. No doubt the aggregate effect of the multiple failures of the roll-out will ultimately be blamed on those companies as well as Republicans. Don't forget that this bill was passed by means of multiple lies told to the American people by the president himself. He stared into the television camera myriad times and knowingly made promises he knew couldn't be kept. i.e. "You can keep your doctor, you can keep your present healthcare insurance, Obama-care will save the average family $2500 per year etc." This guy has made Richard Nixon look like an eagle scout.
Show me someone who hates the constitution and I'll show you someone who hates the USA.

Since enormous space stations weighing considerably more than uranium fueled bombs have been lifted into orbit for many years now, what makes a missile hauling such a bomb so improbable? And why is it inconceivable that plutonium isn't being accumulated in a reactor underground in Iran? Just because Iran's mullahs are insane doesn't mean they're stupid, does it?

That's so true! Especially since the lives of the unborn are already rated as unnecessary. It's easy to extend the concept, isn't it?

The essence of modern liberalism is that the people are too stupid to make any decisions of consequence in their own lives. Thus government must be expanded to keep them in diapers and away from anything intellectual or empirical that would threaten the well being of government. After Obamacare we can fully expect an agency to be created to wipe our collective buttocks, as we are thought to be too incompetent to accomplish that too.

Don't underestimate Dr. Sowell. He knows his US history cold.
I think I know why Assad has come clean on his gas weapons. It's my belief that the insurgents have captured at least some of the chemical weapons. That's why he's suddenly so interested in eliminating them. He wants the odium to be on the rebels the nexttime they're used.

China Refuses Trade with North Korea

It depends upon which kind of war. The war that North Korea would need to prosecute to conquer South Korea, probably not.
The statement usually attributed to PT Barnum is appropriate here. "There's a sucker born every minute." And one might add, sometimes his name is Hansen, Gore, Kerry, Obama...
