Sorry, should have said "those newly insured in Kentucky." Most Kentuckians aren't on Medicaid, thankfully.
Can't help but notice you're depending a lot on Bloomberg reporting and stats. You report that the number of uninsured in Arkansas and Kentucky dropped, Arkansas by about half. Where is Bloomberg getting its figures? Also, over 80% of those now insured in Kentucky have been added to the Medicaid program. Insurance premiums for twenty-somethings in both states have gone through the roof. Many who had insurance can no longer afford. To get to the point, I don't believe people are as satisfied with Obamacare as you're indicating. And just wait till the other shoe drops, and employer-based plans are hit harder. Obamacare needs to be repealed. We do need to come up with answers on improving insurance coverage and cutting costs, but get rid of this debacle first.
Losing the innocence and gullibility of youth is part of growing up. We all learned to be a little more cautious and cynical as we matured. Most millennials are not stupid. They know they'll get nothing from social security and that Obamacare is being financed, to a great extent, on their backs. Those who are really intelligent know they're going to pay the piper even more than their parents for the massive debt being incurred. They already have a mistrust of big government spying on them. As Matt says, though, conservatives need to provide them with the answers.

A sign did say "ISIS Here" during one of the daily protests in Ferguson.

The stoning of MSNBC reporters has softened my attitude slightly toward the rioters. I suppose it's true that there is some good in everyone.
Seems to be a pattern here. Don't forget "Air Claire" McCaskill charging the taxpayers for trips on a plane belonging to a corporation she and her husband co-owned. There were back taxes owed to Missouri (nearly $300,000), as well as a large sum of federal taxpayer money. She was, interesting to note, Missouri's state auditor before becoming a senator. Not like she didn't know it was wrong.
"If" he was beheaded? Really?
There is an upside to the riots, after all.

Where to begin with all the fallacies in this story? First, the shooting took place August 9; it was not this week. Pursuing igher education?According to local sources, Michael Brown hadn't even enrolled in Vatterott College, a local third-rate trade school whose grads can't get credits transferred to legitimate colleges, nor can they usually get a job after receiving their Vatterott "degree." Brown just recently finished his high school credits at Normandy, not in the Ferguson-Florissant school district, in an alternative program. Jay Nixon didn't call out the National Guard to shore up the county police and state highway patrol: he called them out to protect the police command center, while leaving businesses and individuals unprotected. Previously, he had placed control of the mess in the hands of Highway Patrol officer Ron Johnson after taking control away from the St. Louis Co. PD. He's been acting at the direction of Barack Obama and Eric Holder ever since he got involved. Tonight, he made a statement calling for a vigorous prosecution of the officer. Why were the police slow to release details and to reveal the identity of the officer? Well, duh....there were death threats against the officer and, generally, don't the police hold back information till the witnesses are interviewed? I could go on and on with this, but don't have all night. Reading your article seemed akin to reading an article on Huffington Post or the NYT.
This just makes me want to shop more frequently at Kroger.
Why do Muslims like to behead people? The other day, there were pictures of people ISIS had crucified and beheaded. This included children, for heaven's sake. Now this journalist, and from the looks of it, a second will follow. Prayers for the families of these two men and of all the innocent people ISIS has butchered.
