Tennessee: Obamacare will triple men’s premiums, double women’s | WashingtonExaminer.com


If you voted for Barack Obama and live in Tennessee, Obamacare will triple men’s premiums, and double women’s premiums according to the WashingtonExaminer.

Congratulations liberals.  You got exactly what you paid for.  Wait a minute.  You got exactly what you asked for and what SOMEONE ELSE paid for.  Most of you lefties fall into that 47 percent of America that is on public assistance, so this increase probably doesn’t bother you very much.  Deja Knight at NewsChannel5 in Nashville, Tennessee reports that under the Affordable Care Act, the average healthcare insurance premium will cost $245 per month.

As Kyle Becker at the Independent Journal Review put it,

 

“The taxes from Obamacare will increase on many of the same people who will see their premiums skyrocket. They won’t be able to afford the plans, they won’t qualify for federal subsidies (around 48% will qualify), and their taxes will increase. A triple whammy.”

Huma’s Ultimatum: Tiny Bit Hypocritical Don’t You Think Hillary?


Shayn Roby’s Take: Indeed it is hypocritical of Hillary to expect top aide Huma Abedin to leave her husband after the garbage that she endured from former President ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton. However, there’s more than meets the eye here. Meredith has overlooked the very distinct possibility that Huma and Hillary are a couple. How does Huma afford her expensive wardrobe and lavish apartment furnishings? Perhaps she is a kept woman.

Don’t Embrace Fear, Embrace God’s Promises


Conservative radio talk show host and patriot David Webb posted an excerpt from Air Force Brigadier General John E. Michel, who is currently serving in Afghanistan, at Breitbart.com.  It addresses the natural human tendency to resist change and to react in fear, rather than mapping out an intelligent and effective way to better the circumstances.  The core message of Michel’s article was summarized when he quoted author and entrepreneur Eric Wahl who said, “If you want to know how to have the life you desire, follow your heart today.”  Of course, before following one’s own heart, it is wise to make sure that it is already in line with the will of the Lord.  Jeremiah 29: 11 tells us that God has planned a hope and a future for all of us.  If our hearts are grounded in Jesus to begin with, then there should be no fear in following our hearts, because at that point, we know that the promise given to us in Romans 8:28 will kick in.  Indeed all things do work together for good for those who are according to God’s purpose.

Roby Ratings College Football Top 25: Week 4


Shayn Roby’s Take: Alabama has not lost to an opponent outside the SEC since January 2, 2009. That was to Utah in the Sugar Bowl. It was a game in which Outland Trophy winner Andre Smith missed, and a game in which Alabama seemed to lack motivation. Possibly it was a letdown factor in that game. Their only loss was to Florida in the SEC Championship game. It’s strange to say that playing in the Sugar Bowl could set a team up for a letdown. However, when playing for the National Championship is what was expected, there probably is some merit to that claim.
