Minutes after health care bill is inked, McCollum files lawsuit

Attorney General Bill McCollum wasted no time filing a lawsuit today on behalf of Florida taxpayers to fight the health care reform bill inked seven minutes earlier by President Barack Obama. Obama signed the landmark health care bill during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House. McCollum filed his lawsuit at 12:02 p.m., alleging that the Health Care Reform Law, is unconstitutional. Here's our story advancing the move.

The lawsuit joins that by state attorneys general from South Carolina,Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Louisiana, Alabama, Colorado, Michigan,Pennsylvania, Washington, Idaho, and South Dakota. It was filed today in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida in Pensacola.

The truth

McCollum is an idiot. he was while as a college student and I have seen nothing since to change my mind. A lawsuit! our attorney general is spending his time filing a lawsuit. He would rather have the taxpayers support the uninsured through public hospitals like JMH where the uninsured go to to treat a cold. and now JMH is broke , some say beyond repair.

Lets do it

We should impeach McCollum.

Way to go General! Leading the nation on this issue shows me you can lead the state too. Funny how your opponent seems silent on the issue. You have our family's vote for the mansion in November.

THIS MOMENTOUS DAY!

Not one day in anyone’s life is an uneventful day, no day without profound meaning, no matter how dull and boring it might seem, no matter whether you are a seamstress or a queen, a shoeshine boy or a movie star, a renowned philosopher or a Down’s syndrome child.

Because in every day of your life, there are opportunities to perform little kindnesses for others, both by conscious acts of will and unconscious example.

Each smallest act of kindness – even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile – reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

Likewise, each small meanness, each thoughtless expression of hatred, each envious and bitter act, regardless of how petty, can inspire others, and is therefore the seed that ultimately produces evil fruit, poisoning people whom you have never met and never will.

All human lives are so profoundly and intricately entwined – those dead, those living, those generations yet to come – that the fate of all is the fate of each, and the hope of humanity rests in every heart and in every pair of hands.

Therefore, after every failure, we are obliged to strive again for success, and when faced with the end of one thing, we must build something new and better in the ashes, just as from pain and grief, we must weave hope, for each of us is a thread critical to the strength – the very survival – of the human tapestry.

Every hour in every life contains such often-unrecognized potential to affect the world that the great days for which we, in our dissatisfaction, so often yearn are already with us; all great days and thrilling possibilities are combined always in THIS MOMENTOUS DAY!

Excerpt from Dean Koontz’s book, “From the Corner of His Eye”.

It embodies the idea of how the smallest of acts can have such a profound effect on each of our lives.
