Yeah Bob, nothing like the Kennedy assassination had ever happened before, if you don’t count these three others.

From Newsbusters:

BOB SCHIEFFER, HOST: We want to turn now to a fateful day you’re going to be hearing a lot about over the next month because November 22nd marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John Kennedy, a day that many believe changed America forever. The first word of it for many of us came from Walter Cronkite.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WALTER CRONKITE: From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1:00 PM Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

SCHIEFFER: The nation was plunged into shock. Nothing like this had ever happened.

Maybe Schieffer’s not counting Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley because they were Republicans.

    Pretty much part of the festivities for "Nostalgia for Ideologically Wounded Liberals Month". Every cr@ppy sit-com from happier times is sponsoring some sort of "re-union".

    That way Hollywood can press on w/ their endless patting on the back all while having something other than our current [rather bleak] BRINK to talk about..? Kind of like the Lib pundolts chirping in on O'DramaDon'tCareSoMuch "Despite the… obvious deficiencies in its implementation… free/cheap health premiums is no less, a NOBLE idea..!?!?!?!"

    Yeah dipw@d. Right along with promising your wife that 1st class trip around the world? Ending hunger and curing cancer! All 'noble' aims, but ( having a freaking PLAN kinda' 'helps' don't ya' think? ) Because, YES, it was always the Conservatives intent to make all people that "aren't like us" suffer from untreated illness and disease as much as possible..!

    Give the old fart a break. He was still in diapers when Lincoln got shot.

    The most important clue to the JFK assassination can be found in this Youtube video:

    Lol. Somehow that sounds accurate. Old duffer Progs have to bang the dum a little more frantically and are generally used to deliver -landmark- talking points for The Agenda.

    Lawrence Schultz; "I'll just come out and SAY it.., I.Am.A.Sew-shall-ist!

    Then leave the steady drum beats for Sarah Silverman and O'Bummer testing buddies like Scarlet Johansen.

    Speaking of having plans, it looks like they are now saying that they might have to rebuild the Obamacare website from the ground up. I'll bet that will cost us taxpayers yet another billion. The worst part is, it is a Republican saying this:

    /facepalm

    Seeing as how well the "affordable care act" has worked out, Pelosi has said that if the Dems win the House next year that her first priority would be to use the majority to create "comprehensive affordable, quality childcare":

    Atop her priority list as Speaker, she said, would be “comprehensive affordable, quality childcare” for working mothers, which she sees as a natural extension of ObamaCare.

    At this rate the GOP ought to just have Pelosi as their spokesperson for the 2014 midterms. She is doing more to guarantee the GOP will keep the House than the GOP is doing. http://thehill.com/homenews/house/330825-pelosi-w

    Funny thing about Kennedy, is he absolutely hated Marxists, Socialists and Communists, he would have considered Obama as big an enemy as he considered Khrushchev.

    A burial shroud for Benghazi…

    Where natch the kiddies will be exposed to every Prog-agenda talking point under the sun… MM pointed out awhile back many schools now browbeat the message w/ "recycling classes".

    Only Progs could turn the difference between paper & plastic into a 'class'. And I think we all… know it winds up in the DUMP? Yes, DO keep talking Nan.

    Dear Facepalm,

    That's my [rather limited] understanding as well. Because getting the dirt on their own citizens is way more important than dispensing anything resembling health 'care' the site was constructed to force the unfortunates to divulge ALL their personal info PRIOR to shopping a d@mned 'policy'.

    And from what I'm told, there's no assurance the policy is bona fide either? So the bottleneck would be the equiv. of having everyone on the same web page at Amazon.., simultaneously!

    Oh, just wanted to point out much of this "enrolment process" gave some of the appearances as when law enforcement offers 'prizes' to fugitives, they show up to collect and leave only w/ a pair of handcuffs.

    The lure of free/cheap HC may have provided enough an enticement for those in the underground economy ( that haven't filed a tax return for YEARS ) to "come out from the shadows".

    This has long been a sticking/paranoid point for Progs. Where self-employment = prostitution/drug trafficking. Granted, these guys hack me off too, but it's not nearly as prevalent as Progs like to pretend. If only the odd brother-in-law that paints houses for cash would come clean, all their problems would be solved..!

    Well that is unless you are talking about immigration enforcement.

    Just as we all expected illegals will be getting their "free" health insurance via Obamacare.

  12. Truesoldier__ on October 28th, 2013 2:55 pm

    Of course Nan "you got to pass it to see whats in it" didn't elaborate on the details, but I have a sneaky suspicion that this child care act will also have an individual mandate….how else will the progs make sure they get their tentacles into our children at the earliest age possible.
