A Disclaimer first...

Spare me the racist remarks in the comments and emails, please. I'm not being racist on any level.

I'm trying to figure out, seriously, not sarcastically, why a pretty large portion of the United States population (I'm not arguing percentages either...) Is tagged as exempt under obamacare and how exactly that blends/meshes on any real level with the Constitutional rights *every* citizen of the United States is supposed to have.

I'm hardly a political activist, and a Constitutional scholar is a bit beyond my pay-grade as well.

I'm just plain and simple. I'm just ordinary folk. Sort of. Most everyone else probably still has zero clue as to what's moving ahead in this country and I don't have much either but appreciate the gut feelings I tend to roll with. No, I don't know, hear about, or usually give a half a hoot about any of it...times are changing and I just want to be as prepared as I can be given history and a fairly wide-view of a dingy future on earth here.

Aside from the obvious reasons for exempting groups of people based on religious views, I just don't see how this could line up with anything based on Constitutional values, etc.

But, what do I know. It's all relative, I suppose.

I have tried and tried to understand this new health care thing and I get lost! The one thing I don't understand is if you make under 80K a year (yes 80K!) you are in the "below poverty" level. ( It might be more then 80K)
then you are excempt and get obamacare. I wish they ( but I don't trust they )would come out with a "obamacare for dummie" book!

Oh, I read that in Time mag or Newsweek. Can't remember which one.

First, you start class warfare by turning one group against another group. Then, somebody has to come to the rescue to bring equality to the masses. . . . . . . No, that's another playbook. Who did that in history??? Hmmmm.

As for racism, I think voting for someone simply BECAUSE of the color of their skin is racism. Besides, nobody talks about the "half" that's supposed to be white. Weird. Just weird all the way around.


Jeremiah 6:16
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
