President Obama doesn't have much in common with Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh -- though he is actually 10th cousins to both through common ancestors who lived back in the days when the British ran America.

Ancestry**** is reporting that "Obama and Palin are 10th cousins through common ancestor John Smith," while the president and the conservative commentator Limbaugh are "actually 10th cousins once removed via common ancestor Richmond Terrell."

"This election season is an ideal time to look into the family trees of our candidates and their critics to learn more about the ties that make them all part of this great country," said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry****.

Coughy, you DO realize Obama's second cousin is a Tea Party Member?

"This is not your typical political dynasty-in-the-making: A second cousin to Barack Obama is considering a run for U.S. Senate, and he's a fire-breathing conservative. Milton Wolf, whose mother's cousin was also Obama's grandmother, is a Kansas radiologist who writes columns for The Washington Times and produced videos for The Daily Caller last year.

Neither publication is known for its patience with the president, and Wolf fits right in with their politics. He is gauging support among conservative leaders for a primary challenge to Sen. Pat Roberts"

So Wvcoffee, were you able to access the site? Because as far as I know NOBODY was. Can you imagine if a real health insurance business operated like that? No access to customer? Bankrupt. But this is Government, so "please wait" is "business" as usual. LOL

Has ANYONE here successfully enrolled in Obamacare? I've been trying for TWO DAYS to get on the healthcare dot gov website and all I've gotten is "Please stay on this page... We’ll send you to the login page as soon as we can."

Can ANYONE relate ONE first-hand experience on actually enrolling in Obamacare? Rate? Deductable? What's covered and what's not covered? Does Obamacare really exist?

I guess Nancy Botoxi need to wait a little longer to find out what's in it...

Headline: Insurance Market Sites Hit With Heavy Traffic;

Oh, say it isn't so; those nasty tea party far-right troublemaking minority is logging onto the government sites and have tied them all up to prevent those poor sheeple from finding insurance.

Shucks, outsmarted the Liberals again.

But Bush.......

Is it only me, or does it seem strange that the big Obama Care supporters have either opted out of coverage, or been granted an extension, while Obama's middle class is forced to buy in this year or pay a TAX for non-participation; with Harry Reid and Obama not even considering a one-year extension making participation optional for the little guy until next year?

What are Harry and Barry afraid of?

Coffee: If Obama and his Liberal Media would use their "bully pulpit" to propose individual responsibility and self-reliance there would be no need to discuss government payment for your birth-control.

I never fail to be amazed that so many people trust a group of unrelated people (bureaucrats) to make individual decisions for them.

You have GOT to be kidding. You whining Demorats are shutting down the Department of Veterans Affairs over $9 birth control pills? You're Fluke-ing our veterans over THAT? Again? Disgusting. If you can't afford $9 birth control pills, how are you going to afford HUNDREDS TO THOUSANDS in monthly Obamascam premiums or fines and THOUSANDS more in Obamacare deductibles? Just pathetic, Democrits. SIGN THE BILL, UNPATRIOTIC LAGGARD SENATE DEMOCRITS.

Oh some of them realize it alright. Obamacare is just a stepping stone to single payer healthcare in America. Demorat leaders are crooked, but they aren’t stupid. Well, the king Demorats aren’t stupid, at least. The Obamazombie parrot Demorats? Stupid. LOL

Wvcoffee, they may be ignoring Harry and Barry and Nancy and the rest of the loony left, but those tea party Representatives certainly AREN’T ignoring the voters who PUT THEM IN OFFICE.

Elections matter, remember coffee? Now those tea party Representatives are representing their constituents just the way they should be.

Now PASS THE BILL, DEMOCRITS. Republicans compromised and gave you EVERYTHING YOU WANTED IN IT. The ENTIRE debt ceiling increase you wanted. It’s YOUR turn to compromise. Delay the individual mandate like the MAJORITY of Americans want you to, and like Barry Bankrupter already delayed the employer mandate.

DO YOUR JOBS, DEMORATS. PASS THE BILL.

Your leaders aren't negotiating for lower spending. They're trying to overrule the people who voted for Obama and ACA, SCOTUS and their own laws passed by congress. Deplorable !! Throwing on anti women admendments... The Teapublicans are DONE! Just ask Rick Perry...

It's sad that the ACA supporters haven't realized yet that the program is destined to die for lack of funds if only the people that will sign up are those that have been shut out by other insurance for various reasons.

The healthy youth that are currently not supporting the health care costs and the wealthy that are self-insured will continue to not subsidize the health care costs through government or private insurance, they will just pay the penalty.

Oh wait, the Supreme Court said that the bill was unconstitutional if it included a penalty but it could include a tax; but wait Obama said that he would not raise taxes on the middle-class.

I guess it depends upon your definition of what "it" is?

totally off topic, but related to the Oz mentality of this administration and their supporters. Good to see someone at the old school is not following the herd of academics behind obie.

"Not all scientists are panicking about global warming — one of them finds the alarmism “hilarious.”

A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.

“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase"

What was that claim that all serious scientists support the Human-Induced Climate Change concepts? Hoop? Birdie? Care to argue crede

"Lielasus, a 54-year-old self-employed grant writer, currently spends about $8,500 a year in premiums and more than $10,000 for out-of-pocket expenses because she has a health condition and her only option has been a state high-risk insurance pool. She said she expects those costs to decrease significantly."

Why? According to a CPA firm with no axe to grind, a family of four with no known medical problems will be spending about that much under this system. No bias, they just looked at the quoted prices for coverage, the copays and deductibles, and added it up.

A Gallup poll found a quarter of people plan to pay the fine. The real problem for obieCare is almost half of young adults will not sign up. Since one real goal was getting their premiums, since they use little medical care, is the high cost people will join, the low cost won't. Any insurance agent will tell you that's a recipe for disaster.
