The holidays are here. If you have the financial resources to provide a comfortable life for your family, you have reason to be thankful.

We have Obamacare, which can’t seem to even sign people up yet. I wonder what will happen when Obamacare gets going? The way it works is as follows: you go to your doctor about some problem that you have. Your doctor can’t diagnose, or treat you until he text messages the 15-member panel.

His second offense will be a fine and jail time. If for some reason he doesn’t agree with the treatment he can send his opposition to the panel, then the panel will rule on treatment.

She enjoys brushing, cat scratching posts, and running a sprint through the house.

Even though Arizona is generally considered a “red” state, I’d like to thank all those who voted for Barack Obama, especially those who re-elected him. I voted for the other guy, both times. And thanks for putting all of those Democrat senators and representatives into Congress.
