Jimmy Carter: George Zimmerman Jury 'Made The Right Decision' (VIDEO)
Excerpt: "I think the jury made the right decision based in the evidence presented because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman and that he was not defending himself and so forth," he said. "It's not a moral question, it's a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented." Asked if he thought Martin's killing and Zimmerman's case presented any broader issues of race, Carter said not necessarily, considering the prosecution didn't bring up any alleged racial motivation during the trial. (Egad. Who thought one could ever agree with Jimmy Carter? Look to the heavens for the end signs…Barb)

Obama’s last campaign: Inside the White House plan to sell Obamacare
Excerpt: Now Simas, a sad-eyed
native with a facility for PowerPoints, needs to reach those same groups again — with a much harder ask. This time, he doesn’t just need them to vote. He needs them to buy health insurance, and, in some cases, spend hundreds of dollars a month for it. If they don’t, the new insurance marketplaces — the absolute core of Obamacare — will be filled with older, sicker people, and premiums will skyrocket. And if that happens, the law will fail.

The NY Times Tries -- And Fails -- To Protect Obamacare From Health Insurance 'Rate Shock'
Excerpt: Yesterday, fans of Obamacare were cheering. A front-page story in the New York Times announced that individuals shopping for health insurance in
would see their premiums halved, based on figures released by the Andrew Cuomo administration. It was an “extraordinary decline” that “demonstrates the profound promise” of Obamacare, said one supporter of the law. But the cheerleaders are wrong. New York ’s premiums will remain among the costliest in the nation, after Obamacare becomes fully operational. And the unique history of how the New York destroyed its individual health-insurance market—using policies quite similar to Obamacare’s—will translate, at best, to only a handful of other states.
