California consumers say duped by
Blue Shield´s limited Obamacare plans

Consumers who purchased new health plans from Blue Shield of California have sued the insurer, claiming they were misled into thinking the insurance would cover their desired doctors and hospitals. In their complaint filed in California state court on Wednesday, San Francisco residents John Harrington and Alex Talon accused Blue Shield of misrepresenting that their plans, sold on California´s health exchange, would cover the full provider network advertised on the company´s website. They sued on behalf of a class of people who had purchased so-called "preferred provider organization" plans from the insurer only to realize

Typical liberals. Blame those who have to do the heavy lifting and not those who mandate it at the point of the gun.

All lo-fo leftists had their emotional development arrested when they were adolescents.

All of them - - male or female - - act like adolescent girls.

They´re emotionally and mentally undeveloped creatures.

When you are assured by the president of the United States that ´If you like your doctor or health care provider, you can keep them.´ why shouldn´t you expect that from a provider who worked with that president to make Obamacare a reality?

When are these people going to realize 0bamacare allows the congress and government employees all to have Cadillac policies, also the unions, all for free. It is the rest of the poor working people who will pay for all the free Cadillac policies for the people in power, and also for all the poor lo-fo´s who are on welfare and do not work, and pay also for the low income workers who are subsidized by the rest of us. An average pay worker cannot afford the Cadillac policy, so their premiums although higher than before 0bamacare will also include higher co-pays and no access to the doctors they once had before 0bamacare; so how is this good for America?

´Obama Presidential Library´ float

A Fourth of July parade float that depicted a figure standing outside an outhouse labeled the “Obama Presidential Library” has created a stir on social media and is also receiving criticism in Norfolk, Nebraska. (Snip) Neither the float nor the pickup identified a sponsor; a sign in the windshield said it was entry No. 29. Liz Guthrie of Pierce, Nebraska, took a photo of the float that has been widely circulated on social media and shared about 1,000 times on Facebook. From where she watched the parade, Guthrie said she could hear the crowd laughing and clapping as the float

Seattle — Randy Oliver has a pressing question as legal marijuana sales are about to begin in Washington state: Where´s all the weed? Oliver is the chief scientist at Analytical 360 in Yakima, the only lab that has been certified to test the heavily taxed marijuana that will wind up on store shelves next month. So far, just two licensed growers have turned in samples for testing, with another due to turn in a small batch next week, he told The Associated Press on Saturday. "There´s such a small stream of samples coming through," he said. "There's going to be some long lines and some high prices." The state's Liquor Control Board has been

When Do the Right Thing was released a quarter-century ago, few people could have imagined that the $6 million indie about racial tensions in America would one day be hailed as one of the great masterpieces of our time -- by the first black president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the first black president of the United States, no less. But that is precisely what happened on Friday night. In front of an overflowing crowd on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the film's writer-director-star Spike Lee signed books, attended a reception and then participated in a Q&A about the film -- introduced by

ABC: Don’t bother firing everyone,

“The View” is secretly one of the most important political series of the 2000s, one that, at its peak, put forceful opposing opinions about the biggest issues of the day in front of viewers. The famous Rosie O’Donnell-Elisabeth Hasselbeck fight that prompted O’Donnell’s departure was about civilian casualties in the Iraq War — and the fact that neither O’Donnell nor Hasselbeck argued her case particularly clearly was part of the personality of the show. The show’s hosts discussed hot-button issues, and interviewed politicians, in a strikingly colloquial manner, one that seemed to update the genteel chumminess of executive producer Barbara

The economy contracted dramatically in the first quarter of 2014, according to re-revised data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The federal department´s initial assessment of Q1 2014 was that the nation´s economic activity had expanded slightly. After getting more data, it revised that estimate to a 1 percent contraction. The third estimate, however, is much more severe: the economy contracted 2.9 percent. But this probably won´t cause President Obama to lose too much sleep. Wonkblog´s Yian Mui walked through the qualifiers on the number: "It was really cold during the winter. Hiring picked up dramatically as spring grew closer.

Economy shrank 2.9% in
1Q, worst drop since ´09

Posted By: NorthernDog- 6/25/2014 9:21:33 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. economy turned in its worst quarter in five years during the first three months of 2014, shrinking more sharply than previously estimated. The nation´s gross domestic product in the first quarter fell at a 2.9% annual rate vs. the 1% contraction previously believed, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected a 1.8% drop in output. The decline was the sharpest since growth tumbled 5.4% in the first quarter of 2009 during the Great Recession. The last time the economy shrank was in the first quarter of 2011, slipping 1.3%. The more dramatic drop was largely

President Obama receives his worst marks yet for handling the situation in Iraq, with 52 percent disapproving and strong negative sentiment now outpacing strong approval by 2 to 1 (34 to 17 percent) in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Asked whether the U.S. should launch air strikes against Sunni insurgents, 45 percent support and 46 percent oppose that idea. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans support air strikes, compared with 44 percent among Democrats and 41 percent of independents. The gap between men and women is just as large and extends across party lines. Men support air strikes by a 54

Baghdad Bomb Blitz Feared
as Next Stage of ISIS Offensive

With ISIS forces nearing Baghdad´s city limits, U.S. officials don´t believe the relatively small, ill-equipped army of Islamic militants will be able to take the city by a frontal assault. Instead, they fear that ISIS will terrorize Baghdad by launching a wave of suicide bombings and possibly cutting off water and electricity to the city of 7.5 million. The strategy, according to the officials, appears aimed at demoralizing residents of the city and inciting a new wave of sectarian violence that could further undermine the ruling Shia-led Iraqi government. Asked if the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a

LOS OLIVOS, CALIF.—From outside the gates of Neverland Ranch, it appears as if Michael Jackson’s former home and fantasyland has been frozen in time. The backyard circus is long gone, but heartfelt notes placed by saddened fans at the property’s entrance remain intact five years after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009. And visitors are still making the pilgrimage. “I figured it would just be a closed gate, but I still wanted to see it for myself,” said James Chen of Seattle, a fan who stopped outside Neverland during a recent road trip with his father.

Los Angeles - The Islamic extremists who have seized swathes of Iraq could destabilise the entire region and threaten the United States, President Barack Obama has warned. The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis) could spread conflict to neighbouring states and pose a “medium and long-term threat” to the US, Obama said in an interview aired on Sunday. "We´re going to have to be vigilant generally,” Obama said. “Right now the problem with Isis is the fact that they´re destabilising the country. That could spill over into some of our allies like Jordan." Secretary of state John Kerry,

NAJAF, Iraq — It had been quite the morning for Jamli Umm Saif, a mother of four. After morning prayers on Saturday, she sent off her husband and eldest son to join a military parade by the Mahdi Army, a Shiite militia run by the populist cleric Moktada al-Sadr. Then she phoned her girlfriends and told them to come watch the parade wearing white shrouds draped over their black chadors, as a sign that they, too, the women of the Mahdi Army, were ready for martyrdom. “Yes, we are women,” said Umm Saif, a nickname meaning “mother of Saif,” giggling from behind her black face cover. “But don’t be mistaken.

The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008. Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the
