1. (Law) the state or condition of being a slave; a civil relationship whereby one person has absolute power over another and controls his life, liberty, and fortune
2. the subjection of a person to another person, esp in being forced into work
3. the condition of being subject to some influence or habit
4. (Business / Industrial Relations & HR Terms) work done in harsh conditions for low pay
There is more than one definition and it is not exclusive to race, religion, or sex. Jews were slaves and still are persecuted across the world. There is the sex slave trade going on in almost every country and even child slavery in countries like Nepal. http://thecnnfreedomproject.blogs.cnn.com/
I guess the only way people, like Bashir, can stay relevant is to be vile and spew hateful rhetoric towards those he disagrees with. That is how you counter these people, you don’t fall into their trap, you just turn their own statements against them. You expose these people for what they are, and thanks to the internet, they cannot hide or deny what they said any longer.

Lawd help us Jesus! Please let this train wreck end! It is beyond disgusting how much of a disaster this is at by the end will be over a BILLION dollars wasted once again! It’s amazing how I can find out more about buying insurance than the damn Secretary in charge of it. May I refer Ms. Sebelius to the website she was overseeing.
If you have coverage from a job (or a family member’s job), you’re considered covered and won’t have to pay the fee that uninsured people must pay.
You may be able to change to Marketplace coverage, but you might not qualify for lower costs on your premiums based on your income. This will depend on the type and cost of insurance the employer provides.
If you have a job-based plan, you’re considered covered
Any job-based health plan you currently have qualifies as minimum essential coverage. You don’t need to change to a Marketplace plan in order to avoid the penalty that uninsured people have to pay starting in 2014.
If you’d like to explore Marketplace coverage options you can, but there are several important things to consider.
Comparing job-based and Marketplace plans
With most job-based health insurance plans, an employer pays part of your premiums. If you pick a Marketplace plan instead, the employer doesn’t contribute to your premiums. You should consider this carefully before comparing Marketplace plans.
Seriously! This all makes me

Once again, we blame the TEA PARTY vs. the CORRUPT ELECTED OFFICIALS that have been in office WAY TOO LONG spending our country into epic failure. Hopefully the TEA PARTY is gaining momentum and will start getting rid of these fools. One can only hope.

“The report also said staff failed to make sure Castro watched a suicide prevention video when he first arrived in August.”
SERIOUSLY??? There is such a thing?
Ooops I forgot for a moment where I lived…my bad. Sheesh!

Jesus God! Enough of the drama…the world is going to end cause the government shut some stuff down!
This is sooo making me tired!

Typical, when you do not have a valid argument, resort to foul language and violence. What amazes me, is that this same person, will be in full support of pro-hatred of women groups, such as Muslim Sharia Laws. There is no point in arguing with these kind of people, they done drank the kool-aid.

This country is just sinking further and further into a sesspool…sad really.
I also do not agree in Corporate Welfare, but I also do not believe in BS subsidies to push agendas…aka Solendra. It has been proven over and over you cannot tax into prosperity, Why do you think that the Depression lasted over 10 yrs? We only were artificially bailed out of it with a world war and even that took many years which included everyone having to sacrifice and ration. This governement has been digging a spending whole that is waiting to cave in. OPEN YOUR EYES!

Seriously??? Last time I checked, there sure are a LOT of Millionares in the entertainment industry who contribute and support the DNC. There are also a hell of alot of Millionares in the House and Senate who are Democrats. YOU need to look at all the BS and WASTE from BOTH parties. Don’t fall for the same party lines and media rhetoric that does nothing but divide our nation. A divided people is a weak and easily controlled people. If you have never been to a Tea Party event, I would suggest you go and see what really is going on. Working class people who are tired of the government robbing us blind and taking away our liberties one at a time through the guise of “entitlements”. That is the truth, plain and simple.

There is NO REASON WHATSOEVER that this Government cannot pay for the programs and services necessary to keep it running. The WASTE WASTE WASTE is beyond disgusting and I am sick and tired of the same cronies saying the same bull that Grandma is gonna lose her SS and the troops ain’t gonna get paid. If I GOOGLE Government waste lists, so can anyone else! It is time for a COMPLETE AUDIT of the Government and every single entity that receives funding and grants from it. We can balance the buget and pay off the majority of debt quickly if we saw where ALL the tax money is going. http://thewastelist.nrcc.org/
It is time to wake up, take our country back, and demand TERM LIMITS! These Jokers have been in the corruption too long and it’s time to be represented by real people, not career politicans who do not represent anyone but their own selfish interests!

To prove a point, I think the same student should go down to the exact same place and pass out Islamic or even Communist literature and see if he gets the same reaction. If he doesn’t, then he has proof to show there is freedom of speech, but only the “right kind” of speech on that campus. This just goes to show why I refuse to go back and spend any more of my hard earned money to further my education at these campuses. Unfortunately, you have this everywhere, it’s not just a California problem.
In the wake of the financial meltdown, President Barack Obama derided Wall Street bonuses as “obscene,” calling them examples of “fat cats who are getting awarded for their failure.”
But now, Mr. Obama has announced that he will nominate as his next Treasury secretary Jack Lew, a man who in 2009 bagged a $950,000 bonus after his bank, Citigroup, received billions in a taxpayer-funded bailout.
Mr. Lew is the former chief operating officer of Citigroup’s Alternative Investments unit—a group that bet billions against homeowners paying their mortgages.
As the Huffington Post reported in 2010, during Mr. Lew’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director confirmation, “neither the Senate’s Budget Committee nor its Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee bothered to ask a single question about Lew’s tenure at Citigroup, transcripts of the proceedings show.”
Lol! This stuff just gets weirder and weirder. But, we are the ones who are going to suffer for these morons! So, now he has an even bigger thief running the Treasury. Yeah buddy!
You seem to think the game is not rigged. Of course it is and our party is as guilty of malfeasance as the damned Democrats.

Along with all those that are registered. The ATF Gestapo has been out of control since Ruby Ridge. Our POTUS will just make it that much easier for the ATF to gain more power and be able to take away more rights.
We all need to wake up soon, for there are a lot of dark days ahead of us!

HOLLYWOOD=SENSATIONALISM! What else is new? These people will sign on for anything to get a paycheck, including getting profits from so called eco/green companies…can we say Al Gore? I don’t waste my money on going to movies that spew this crap or seeing films with those actors that contribute financially or promote bs causes.
So, when are we going to start saving the millions of birds and bats that are being killed all over the planet from Wind Farms? Matt? Anyone? Thought so.
I think the deporting deal was a bit stupid. You want to get rid of Morgan, just don’t watch, or endorse his show. That means don’t talk about him, don’t waste Twitter or FB messages or any other social media sharing his nonsense. He will go away like Olbermann, basically a pariah to any so called news network.

Y’know, this has got to be the stupidest thing I have heard so far this month from our Government. Seriously? They really want us to fall for this? Can I pull a coin out of my behind to pay my creditors? Unfortunately, for us in the real world, we can’t. So like all of us who actually do pay our bills and creditors, we do that by budgeting and not spending beyond our means. Gee…what a concept! We need a complete Government overhaul of every department and get rid of all of these morons that the sheeple keep voting in!
The disgust I feel for my Government grows every day. No wonder we are mocked by so many countries!
