Thank you for the explanation of your vote to repeal Obamacare.

You forgot to mention the "replace" part.

Please elaborate.

Shame on the administrators and board member at Totino-Grace.

They are on the wrong side of history, and, I believe, on the wrong side of the teachings of their prophet Jesus.

Todd, you'd *think* that would be a good path to follow, but it goes against the whole idea of a religious dogma that must be adhered to.

In other words, you are proposing something that goes against the very idea that defines religion, any religion.

It's a "Believe in this, and you can join our club" kind of mentality.

Weird that people behave this way, but what are you going to do, eh?

Burn them at the stake?

Oh, wait ...

Here's one result of the action taken by administrators at Totino-Grace:

Many, many students in this Catholic school will now begin to question their faith. And if they aren't doing it now, they will when they get questioned about this firing by their peers in other schools.

So, you see, there IS a silver lining!

* Note: To head off those who might suppose that my comment is anti-Catholic, let me say that I think that every religious person should question his/her faith...

That's a shame.

My thoughts are with Rod and his family.

Or, President Obama has decided to follow the Constitution. You decide.

... that there are several advisers to President Obama who are saying: "Yes, but this time it will be different."

No, it won't. It's never different.

It will be a quagmire, just as the writers at the Onion have so pointedly explained.

RB asks: "How many people in the US find it difficult to watch professional football?"

I, for one.

It's boring, takes too long, is mostly inactivity while players huddle and plan plays that are measured in seconds.

Plus, what's so entertaining about a bunch of steroid-pumped freaks running around bashing into each other?

Did Ed Morrissey at Hot Air really say that younger and poorer Americans don’t need to access anything more than a primary-care physician once or twice a year?

Really?

What utter rot.

Yeah, maybe for the majority of them that's true. But so what?

What about the thousands (yes, thousands) of them each year who will be in car crashes, break a leg skiing (or while engaging in some other extreme sport), get burned in a kitchen accident or house fire, etc.

Or...
