God I hate saying this and it will probably be removed which is fine.

but we all know there will be another mass shooting in the future. So that being true I would wish that it would happen to the republicans in congress.

I am not trying to incite violence here. I was just thinking about how these people's motivation is to spend their time taking as much food and shelter and education and health care from children as they can. And how after the second largest mass shooting in this country happened to children these people's motivation was to spend their time and energy making sure that this would happen again in the future.

The ironic thing is they all work behind metal detectors.

It just seems like it would be poetic justice.

I know I'm a pest with the petitions but this one.......

http://www.change.org/petitions/sign-here-tell-40-limbaugh-sponsors-clear-channel-cumulus-we-will-not-buy-support-misogyny-racism-or-hate-speech?utm_source=supporter_message&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=petition_message_notice

A reminder of some of the things he has said.

"If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch."

~Rush Limbaugh, during a three day, on air, verbal attack of then unknown law student, Sandra Fluke. He also called her a 'slut' and a 'prostitute'. She was advocating for insurance covered birth control. Video



"Now, this is Michael J. Fox. He's got Parkinson's disease. And in this commercial, he is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He is moving all around and shaking. And it's purely an act."

~Limbaugh, while also making erratic motions with his arms and hands mocking Mr. Fox.



"There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? Itís become normal ó and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics itís the most important issue in terms of who they vote for. So donít pooh-pooh. Thereís a movement to normalize pedophilia..Ē ~ Limbaugh



"Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is also a White House dog?"

~Limbaugh, while holding up a photograph of 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton.



"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble (African American) Jesse Jackson?" -Limbaugh



"You Know How to Stop Abortion? Require That Each One Occur With a Gun" ~Limbaugh



Hundreds of similar quotes have been documented. By signing this petition, we are sending a clear message to the networds that carry The Rush Limbaugh Show (Clear Channel/iHeart Radio and Cumulus) and we are letting Limbaugh's sponsors know that we do not want the money we use to buy products and services, to support Limbaugh in any way.



Copies of this petition and signatures are sent to the sponsors by email, with each new 500 signatures added. As well as boycotting these companies, you can also use this information to personally contact any of these companies to voice your concerns.



The sponsor list changes often. All sponosrs listed here have advertised with Rush Limbaugh wtihin the last 90 days.

This year, I have passed more amendments in the U.S. House of Representatives than any other Member of Congress. According to Slate magazine, Iím the most effective Member of Congress.

Last year, I passed no amendments. Why? Because I wasnít in Congress. The Republicans beat me in 2010, spending more than $5 million in sewer money to inundate my district with lying negative ads.

As I pointed out to you in e-mails on Friday and Saturday, it can happen again. In fact, it looks like it is happening again. The Republicans are already spewing their nasty filth against me, calling me an ďObamacare co-conspirator.Ē

As I explained in those e-mails, The Washington Post recently reported that the National Republican Congressional Committee is targeting me. That word Ė ďtargetingĒ Ė is their word, not mine.

When you are a ďtargetedĒ House Democrat, it means that the other side is planning to spend $5 million or more to defeat you. You can take my word for it, because it happened to me before. And it worked. I was out of office. For two years, I wandered in the wilderness.

When you are out of office, there ainít nothing you can do for nobody. Think of liberal lions like Dennis Kucinich, Barney Frank, Russ Feingold. Think of how much they accomplished in office. And then think of what they accomplished afterward.

How much would Elizabeth Warren be able to achieve if she had lost her Senate race?

Since I put out the word on Friday night, we have received over $100,000 in contributions and pledges, from well over 1000 people. Thatís great, and Iím grateful. But thatís not enough to counter $5 million. If you didnít contribute this weekend, then I need you to do that now.

And as Iíve explained before, the most effective way to do that is to make a monthly pledge. Just $10 or $20 or $25 each month Ė it adds up. It makes a difference, a huge difference. Every dollar counts.

We are fighting for justice, equality and peace. We are paying attention, we are working hard, and we are getting things done. And because of that, I am under attack. I need your help, and I need it today.

I know you are counting on me. Well, it works both ways. Iím counting on you. Please donít let me down.

Courage,

Rep. Alan Grayson

Is this Sherpa calculator for Obamacare accurate???

Is this Sherpa calculator for Obamacare accurate???

I plugged in for a family of 4: 10,000 40,000 50,000 and 100,000 and it says every time that "you make too much to qualify for ACH and the price they quote is around 7,000 annually for different companies for the cost.

This is nothing like the Keiser foundation's calculator nor what I have heard on this site. The premiums are way high compared to Keiser.

I then did a Google search and found nothing bad about them and Daily Kos saying they were great.

I am confused.

The doctor's office just told me that they were not allowed to call in

an antibiotic because it was FL. law. They are full of crap because my pulmonary doctor will call in a prescription as long as he is in his office and has access to my files.

My family doctor also has access to my files. I have had asthma since I am a little kid and if I go to long without an antibiotic after a bad cold I know I'm headed to the hospital.

I feel as if they are doing this now because they just want the money from you coming in.

I could not find any laws in FL saying this was regulated. It says they are over-prescribed but not that it was illegal.

I sound sick as a dog.

Can we please start a campaign to bring back Martin Bashir?

I just posted this on my FB page after someone brought up Martin Bashir. I'm going to call and write and and join the group, "Bring back Martin Bashir"

We all should start a telephone and writing campaign to get him back on the air. (212) 664-6605 http://www.msnbc.com/contact

I just found this group on their website. You can join and post your comments. It may be good if you say you will no longer watch MSNBC, (whatever, just say it) because companies don't want to loose patrons. http://bashirlive.groups.msnbc.com/

I was going to paste the #1 thread right now about Sarah Palin

and the great beat down given to her by the foreign press. I went to FaceBook and looked her up and realized that she has it set up so you cannot post comments but it is filled with comments!

One wonders where these comments came from when there is no way to add a comment. (Well truth is we all know)

Color me stupid but I have the worse time going backward and figuring out what the actual effect of

a ruling is. Like this last one about Roe. I guess it is not good for pro-choicer but I mean the supreme court upheld something that was banned that had been appealed in a lower court after the state supreme court refused to hear it after the first court found it unconstitutional. And then the Wiley coyote jumped on the log the was moving upstream in the water that was going the opposite direction and everyone from the foot soldiers to the cooks to Nancy the Emperor's daughter ate fig leaves without washing them and ended up with a very severe case of dysentery.

Do I have that right?

Please sign this petition to your congress critters and senators to ban animals from circuses.

http://www.petition2congress.com/11940/requesting-legislation-be-passed-in-usa-to-ban-wild-animals-in-ci/

Here is the letter for the first petition.

Dear White House Members,

I am writing as a constituent to ask for your support of federal legislation to protect wild animals in circuses. Such legislation addresses an important issue that gravely concerns me about the welfare of wild animals forced to perform in traveling circuses.

Careful research and detailed undercover investigations have shown the welfare of animals is unacceptably compromised under the confinement and cruel training practices that are inherent in traveling circuses. Wild, stressed animals in close quarters with the public has proven to be a public safety hazard, with escaped animals both maiming and even killing members of the public, including children. It is also estimated that around 12% of Asian and 2% of African elephants in North America have tuberculosis (TB), a disease transmissible from elephants to humans.

Every time we allow a majestic wild animal to be reduced to a cheap circus trick, we are not just turning a blind eye to cruelty, we are advancing the belief that it is acceptable to be inhumane and setting a poor example for our children. Simply put, animal acts in circuses are antiquated and belong in the past. Entertaining contemporary circuses like Cirque du Soleil prove that the show will go on without abused animals. Cirque du Soleil now has 19 shows in 271 cities, generating an estimated $810 million a year.

Over 20 countries around the world have adopted national legislation prohibiting or restricting the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses, with hundreds of local bans in place worldwide Ė over 200 in the UK, and hundreds in Europe and South America, as well as Asia. The time is now to act! Please follow the will of your compassionate constituents and be a leader in Congress to work toward protections for circus animals.

Thank you for your public service and I look forward to hearing from you on this important matter.

Sincerely,
