    I'm a little perplexed why CNN hasn't made any mention of China's recent launch of a space vehicle that successfully docked with their space station. I was quite shocked when I just found out that this happened a week ago with zero mention on CNN's television broadcasts that I could tell.

    I guess they couldn't find any time to get it in between kissing Christine Romans' behind about how a character on an HBO show was loosely based on her.

    To CNN's Starting Point's Soledad Obrein, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy watching the show,I try to watch it everyday,because it's so informative and Soledad Obrein is a awesome host that does her homework,knowledgable yet so seemingly reachable and warm as a host to her panel as well as her viewers,bloggers and twitterers. In short to me,she makes the show and I just want her to know,she is excellent at whats she's doing while hosting/starring," Starting Point".

    In reguards to Tropical Storm Debbie belting down on the State of Florida along with herriffic winds and rain,destroying property and the loss of life,and or the endangerment thereof, as Congresses eyes are on the state of health insurance,prayfully the goverment via Fema,is on the ready or atleast on standby mode for the peoples of The State Of Florida and are taking the nessicary asessments of the damage Tropical Storm Debbie caused and can still cause,by seeing the people get emergency housing or bottled water,clothing,non perishable foods,temporary lighting and the like, via FEMA and Red Cross and other institutions that aide desaster victims! And of course all religious leaders and their flock to offer up,pray in the behalf of the multitudes whom are affected by this horriffic storm!

    In regards to Congress ready high courts healthcare decision, fondly known as Obama-Care. My take on it,whats ever best for the masses!There is pro's and con's since the onset,since the President wrote such said law into effect,on many levels, Rep, Democrates and we the people. Only issue I see,is the fineing of peoples whom don't have any form of healthcare insurance,many feel thats their right,while others feel,such said drain the cash cow so to speak,because they don't have insurance. Its a great thing to have,however it doesn't spell a healthy America simply because one is insured.Furthermore some for religious reasons are firmly against treatment by any medical institution. So theres no cute cut answer to the do or die insurance law. Yet on the other hand,it profides coverage for a wide spectrum of peoples,yet also give the freedom of choice to choose their own coverage or present coverage if they have it.I look at Obama-Care as if it were a net,without it,many will fall,with it many will be in good hand

    And there it is. Just like Romney's business career, vouchers and charter schools have nothing to do with the children, but everything to do with breaking the unions. His true feelings revealed right at the end of his argument. Every study on Charter Schools shows they provide no additional benefits to public schools and cost more money.

    Bachman and the Republicans do not believe healthcare is intimate nor do they believe healthcare decisions should be made between an individual and doctor. Example, abortion. Republicans in Congress and in the states, all are regulating how women interact with doctors as it related to womens' healthcare.
