This has ALWAYS been the fear...now it's here. I remember the concern durin the late 60s. Back in the day, they used to call it the sign of the beast. Movies were written about this very thing. And now to hear from Prince Charles who by the way never says anything...express his observation in the shift in America is adding to that "fear" of what we all come to realize...but!

When people don't study history, specifically their own, they are doomed to repeat it. There is an entire documentary about this happening after Reconstruction through the 1940's. However, its not like this has ever stopped happening at all.

Your are correct. I have had several arguments with certain Black people that have the belief that they don't need to know anything about Black history, and especially anything about African history or Africa at all. It's not JUST a Black phenomenon, that holds true to EVERYONE. Look how soon Americans "forget" the job-killing, economy crippling policies of the prior administration or the one before that, etc. But, it IS or SHOULD BE more of an interest or concern for African Americans and...

Actually, don't you think that the individual mandate is really no different than having to have car insurance (which in and of itself is an individual mandate); where it would be unfair for one or some to drive around without insurance, and when they are in an accident the person/people with insurance have to pay for that person's lack of insurance?

Ok is this issue about having health care insurance OR having access to good health care??? For me definitely about access to good health care at an affordable rate. Will we get that if we are made to carry health insurance?? What are the initiatives to recruit students to become good doctors and care about their patients??

Well, that's been the case for pretty much everybody I know ... one story said that insurance premiums have gone up by 30% yearly over the past 5 years for a lot of people!!! And, of course, with that comes a decrease in the services that are provided. Considering that many of the changes that will actually affect premiums, payments, services and quality have not gone into effect yet .... and won't for another two years ... whether or not health care will be more or less expensive than it is...

I'm not a fan of the individual mandate, but before we continue debate on which way is right how about some accountability? If a person can afford it but doesn't want to opt in and they get sick, then sin loy. I think everyone agrees that something needed to be done other than the usual congressional hot air, but we will have to see if this was the right decision ofr not. From what I've read, it is estimated that if nothing was done then cost were expected to nearly double by 2016.

I love my prez....lord knows I do. But! I'm gonna have to come to his defense on this. Cuz my thinking is....folks care MORE about their cars than their own bodies. And you can always get a new car....but not a new body. And if a person wants to drive a car, he/she must register that car, have insurance to drive that car and have current tags. Now we would make sure those things get done for our cars, but we don't wanna pay health care for ourselves. Folks call it tax, others can it fees.

Yeah, well .... that's all well and good .... but the fact that ALEC is returning its focus to "economic interests" is not a good thing, either!!

You know damn well that law will not apply to Black people but what is so crazy, if Zimmerman had killed Travon Martin with this law in place and the prosecution could not prove without doubt it was not self defense, they would have to pay Zimmerman $200,000 bucks.
