      Thank you so much, Bob, for sharing this fabulous interview! I hope the majority of the people in this country will come to their senses and reject the backwardness of the religious fundamentalists who are undermining science.

    Does anyone know if the uninsured people of Louisiana can sue Bobby Jindal and the State?

    I heard today that 87% of the people are not insured and Jindal rejected the funds that would cover the people for 3 years. I don’t remember the amount but the people are suffering and this just doesn’t seem right that they can do this. The money is there and he will not accept it as this jokester in Florida and other states.

    These individuals will end up in the emergency rooms or die before they can get the help they need. This is cruel and inhumane.

      Cruel and inhumane, indeed. Time for doctors to treat the uninsured people and send their bills to the State House, Attention: Bobby Jindal.

        Something has to be done Jacqueline. It’s just wrong, and these are the same individuals who parade across the networks yelling about their Christian values and declaring that President Obama is not a Christian.

            I know…..I feel so helpless when this type of pain comes to the human race, and there is nothing that one can do individually. In times like this, is when I think of the 60’s.

            When things were wrong-“the people” knew how to mobilize and agitate to cause change, and they went from state to state. I keep feeling that it’s time to start mobilizing. Politicians are not going to be in fear of their jobs until they fear the people.

            President Obama can’t do this by him self. It’s not designed for him to carry every load, we the people must get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and then move on our sick and tired, and things will start changing.

            If they (the people) could do it back then, without texts, emails, and twitter, surely we can do it now.

          The only way to change that is to mobilize people who don’t normally vote in mid-term elections to make sure they vote against all these Republicans trying to deny them healthcare. It’s not easy, but that is what must be done. Republicans count on people, and especially poor people, not being motivated to vote. We must counter that by organizing and motivating them to vote.

          This is your SCOTUS at work, Cindy. If they had not given states the right to opt out of Medicaid expansion, Jindal and his fellow Republican governors could not have done this.

      He threw the women under the bus BIG TIME. I don’t know why those who know the truth will not talk, but I sure in hell would be talking and telling everything if I was Bridget Anne Kelley.

      He belittled her to nothing and publicly exposed her relationship, which has nothing to do with the truth. Why would she even think of trying to save his rear?

      He was very arrogant today with the reporters. I can’t even imagine him being the President of the United States. He is disgusting.

      • 35 LDS
        March 29, 2014 at 12:11 am

        Cindy, I personally thought that he was having an affair with her. I knew somewhere there was some affair going on.
        Her loyalty to fat-ass should cease right now. Unless he has promised them all that he will get passed this hurdle and rewards them when he gets to the WH.
        He is just that bold and arrogant to believe that lie.
        They are all probably scared to talk because of his connects and bully tactics. They all know what and how much he is capable of doing. The only place that he should go is to jail and straight to hell. Simply for having no remorse, no repentance and exposing others’ weaknesses when he is the biggest coward of all for not taking some of the blame.

        I thought that I read Rudy Giuliani’s Deputy Mayor was involved in exonerating this fat fool.

        Well, as I continuously say, “Any time RG’s name is mentioned…..it’s over.”
        When I read that I knew CC was and still is lying.
        Just what they do.
        I don’t get upset like I used to because they are all being exposed these days for who they really truly are.
        They have being doing it so long and getting away with it, they do not care.

        But then a man named Barack H. Obama comes along and there is a shift in the atmosphere.

        • 36 Cindy
          March 29, 2014 at 12:21 am

          Yes, like you, my emotions are controlled a bit more. This smells of lies and I hope he hits rock bottom. I will never be convinced that he knew absolutely “nothing.” I heard that her lawyer is looking for a deal and if they get it, she is willing to cooperate. This woman has 4 kids, she better get her house in order before they are visiting her on the weekends only.

          I pray that he is exposed for the scum bag that he is. Tax payers on the hook; $1,000,000.00 dollars paid to his “friends.” Where did that number come from? Special election to stay off the ballot with Corey Booker; tax payers-$12,000,000.00 dollars, and he wants to be POTUS?

          The shift in the atmosphere will expose what has been kept in darkness.

            March 29, 2014 at 12:36 am

            But my question is: How can you get up and go to work for someone like him?
            You know some of that has to rub you the wrong way. I read she was not nice to her husband while working with this bully. She just bounced in the house one day and said she wanted a divorce. No warning. No notice. Nothing.
            Even if she initiated this, I am sure he knew and had a good laugh about it all.

            I wish that she talks and tell all. I hope she comes to realize how many lives were affected that day. He does not deserve to remain in office. RG did not teach how to cover his tracks well enough. “I don’t remember” is the weakest response, ever.

              March 29, 2014 at 12:44 am

              “I don’t remember” is easy; there is no lie to remember. I didn’t know that about her; karma returned her seeds that she planted. I would never work with someone like that, so she enjoyed it, now she wants to make a deal.

              I believe CC has bullied a lot of people because there was absolutely no reason for Democrats to not vote for their own. Money and favors were exchanged. Can you imagine this man in the WH; his friends and cronies? Like Bush/Cheney/ Rumsfeld, they would destroy this country and have us in a war in 2017.

              Just my own thoughts … I’m certainly no fan of hers, but I don’t like these reports (rumors?) about her married life or whatever life she was having that have nothing to do with Christie’s dastardly ways and what he had her do in the office on his behalf. Those reports are doing what Christie had his “investigator” do – smear her personally without offering proof and then saying “pass it on.” Christie wants everybody to concentrate on her reputation – not his. I say wait and see. Hopefully she’ll talk and tell the “whole truth,” if any of them know what that is, at this point.

      top headlines at wapo’s website are about the mystery of tainted doggy treats and of course the missing plane. also a mention of maryland’s troubled health exchange. lower down, ‘obama calls on russia to withdraw its troops’, then below that stunning understatement, ‘port authority official resigns’–which has this quote alongside christie’s happy photo: ‘he is 74 years old and he is tired.’

      so yes, that’s what they do. nothing about the lines of people wanting to sign up for obamacare. nothing about putin’s capitulation to pbo. and certainly nothing about the outrageous abuse of public funds entailed in christie’s cover-up scheme.

        The media is not going to do their job Susanne.

        We the people will have to make a decision to mobilize and do what the media “refuses” to do. We are 7 months away from an election that matters and will have severe consequences for all of us.

        They are going to try and destroy everything that President Obama is working on now. One of the pundits stated today; the repukes will repeal Obacare if they get the Senate, period. They are banking on this.

        It is up to us now-in full drive #FORWARD!

        Thank you sjterrid. Had a note written and then lost it it. I must apologize for my grammar. It’s horrible. I am still wearing a patch with air holes. I should proof-read better before I post but I’m still a little scatter brained from the surgery I think. Everyone here is wonderful and I’m very grateful. I’m so far behind in reading but sounds like Putin called Pres. Obama. I’m so grateful for the First Family., Need to sign off before I fall asleep here. G’ Night.

    Haven’t read all the comments but I thought I’d tell you my main Doctor thinks everything looks great. I still have to keep my head down at at a certain angle, but not all day. Got a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my oldest and most distant son. Our dogs were so happy to see us as all dogs are to see their family. The groomer in the same building was also able to squeeze them in for a grooming and they look nice, they smell nice, and doggone they’re soft and nice. And we’re worth it. :) I just finished outing in all my drops in my eye. I’ve been doing a few but now I have six. Thank goodness for the nice timers on the new iPad. Some are four a day, three a day and two a day. I have to wait five minutes between each dose too. My life will be dull but I’m glad. It sounds like we have the idiotic RWNJ’s to entertain us.
    I want to thank all of you for the beautiful we’ll wishes. It meant a lot. I go back to one doc in a week and the next in a month or is it six weeks! It’s a little painful, but not bad. I think it’s because they looked at my eyes through so many lights this morning. They also had several drops to put in. I do sleep on my tummy. Kind of a weird pillow arrangement. Hope everyone here is doing well and everyone getting better or at least not worst. I’ll check in just occasionally. Is Putin in need of money? Oh, so sad, too bad, not your Dad. ;) G’Night all.

      I don’t think so Mr. Lawson, you see alot of this dislike is fuel by hate, you know race. Sure there maybe a few Republicans out there who don’t like the President policies, but they don’t hate the man. But what makes them look like racists too is their silence. When these out and out racists say something about POTUS or his family the fact that these people doesn’t stand up and say that is wrong. They remain silent allowing these racists to be the leader of their party. And I’m talking about Republicans from the top to the bottom, specially the politicians. None of them have the guts to stand up to that fat drug addict cow Rush Limbaugh.

      As usual they were out drinking last night and acting like alley-cats. When I was there age I kept my nose to the grindstone and my hand on the tiller. These kids these days are hooked on their fancy hand-computers and their skinny jeans. Nobody gets up at the crack of dawn anymore, these kids get up at noon and expect a pancake breakfast.
