“Obamacare has raped my future”

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

From a college student: “Obamacare has raped my future.”

This budget fight exists because Republicans are trying to delay or repeal Obamacare while Democrats are doing everything to keep the law in place. If the Republicans had any brains they would focus on this point, as I do, all the time. Obamacare is a disaster, everyone sees it, and by showing how the Democrats are willing to even shut down the government to endorse it can only work to the Republicans’ political advantage.

    Honey, at 26, you’re an adult. I would bet large sums that she voted Democrat in every election. To borrow from the fans of Portland’s soccer team, from my perspective, there’s “No pity in the Rose City”.

    With any luck, Ashley Dionne will help lead the team that will fix ObamaCare. By “fix” I mean repeal in its entirety.

    I keep hearing people say that there are good parts to the law, but they are hard pressed to say which parts are the good ones. The only part they seem consistent with is the “everyone has insurance” part, but that one leads directly to several of the bad parts, including the high cost and deductibles that Miss Dionne complained about.
