until too late:
Volunteer fire departments all across the U.S. could find themselves out of money and unable to operate unless Congress or the Obama Administration exempts them from the Affordable Care Act.
The U.S. Department of Labor takes the term 'volunteer' literally, but the IRS says volunteer firefighters are technically employees if they're on the job more than 30 hours per week, making them subject to Obamacare's employee-mandate rules.
That could cost departments of life-savers hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Those that dump their volunteers into the federal insurance exchanges would still have to pay an annual $2,000 fine for each 'employee' after the first 30.
'I can tell you right now we can’t afford it,' East Derry, Pennsylvania Fire Company Chief Edward Mann told the Patriot-News. 'While a volunteer fire department may not have a payroll, the rest of it isn’t free. The only part that is free is the labor.'
Mr. Williamson has a response to Clown Bateman, or (Mastur)Bateman as he was once referred to. It includes
In response to comments and outrage, he called a documented SF
soldier a "faker," a former AF Security Policeman who's now a federal
agent a "peacetime veteran," and a gay, black 2nd Amendment
supporter a "fake persona," because no gay black man could POSSIBLY
support gun ownership. (That person's an acquaintance of mine. Gay,
black, gun owning, conservative, union train engineer. How awesome is
In short, he's the textbook example of the small-dicked little
limpwrist who joined the military to prove he's not, and hates guns
because he does have something to compensate for. Likely why he's been
cuckolded twice and divorced. He doesn't measure up, literally and
emotionally. Google "psychological projection."
So it only cost us(that they're admitting to) $10.5 BILLION to 'save' Government Motors and buy all those union votes for Obama. Some deal.
These clowns are in the same category of violent, bigoted muslims who do nasty things and then people say "But they aren't REAL muslims!" Well, to people of working brains and ethics these bitches are NOT what they mean by 'feminists'; but they say they are, and most of the 'feminist' industry says they are.
He links to a thread at Jezebel about physical abuse of men by women, which I found linked somewhere else a while back. Seems to break down- especially in the comments- to a few people saying "Knock this shit off: abuse is abuse no matter who's doing it, and it's not funny" and everyone else either laughing at it or saying some variation of "Well, yeah, it's bad, but it's women hitting men so there are excuses."
Because a burned embassy building and a dead ambassador and three others and a bunch of wounded in Libya have nothing to do with the Mid-East. Yeah.
Especially when it's a Democrat being asked about it.
Althouse has a piece on a farging idiot named Paul Theroux who wrote this:
Even the expression ''Be a man!'' strikes me as insulting and abusive.
It means: Be stupid, be unfeeling, obedient and soldierly, and stop
thinking. Man means ''manly'' - how can one think ''about men'' without
considering the terrible ambition of manliness?...
The levels of fail in this crap are amazing.
