Aetna and United Health Care aren't stupid they've said no thank you to North Carolina and a dozen other "unhealthy" states. Obama care is a house of cards that is going to implode and it's going to cost healthy working Americans billions to recover from this social experiment.
Small employers those with less than 50 employees make up a very large segment of North and South Carolina's fulltime employers. Yet many are struggling to provide the health insurance that they once provided without undue hardship. The reason, they are being penalized for providing coverage and are forced to help ACA providers recover some of their losses.

Following is an unedited transcript of the tape in which Donald J. Trump repeatedly made vulgar comments about women. Mr. Trump was filmed talking to the television personality Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” on the set of “Days of Our Lives,” where Mr. Trump was making a cameo appearance. They are later joined by the actress Arianne Zucker. The transcription is by Penn Bullock of The New York Times.
Donald J. Trump: You know and ...
Unknown: She used to be great. She’s still very beautiful.
Trump: I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.
Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married.
Unknown: That’s huge news.
Trump: No, no, Nancy. No, this was [unintelligible] — and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping.
She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture —
I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
Billy Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.
Trump: Whoa! Whoa!
Bush: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!
Trump: Look at you, you are a pussy.
Trump: All right, you and I will walk out.
Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s, it’s her, it’s —
Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.
Bush: Uh, yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs.
Trump: Oh, it looks good.
Bush: Come on shorty.
Trump: Ooh, nice legs, huh?
Bush: Oof, get out of the way, honey. Oh, that’s good legs. Go ahead.
Trump: It’s always good if you don’t fall out of the bus. Like Ford, Gerald Ford, remember?
Bush: Down below, pull the handle.
Trump: Hello, how are you? Hi!
Arianne Zucker: Hi, Mr. Trump. How are you? Pleasure to meet you.
Trump: Nice seeing you. Terrific, terrific. You know Billy Bush?
Bush: Hello, nice to see you. How you doing, Arianne?
Zucker: Doing very well, thank you. Are you ready to be a soap star?
Trump: We’re ready, let’s go. Make me a soap star.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Donald? He just got off the bus.
Zucker: Would you like a little hug, darling?
Trump: O.K., absolutely. Melania said this was O.K.
Bush: How about a little hug for the Bushy? I just got off the bus.
Zucker: Bushy, Bushy.
Bush: Here we go. Excellent. Well, you’ve got a nice co-star here.
Zucker: Yes, absolutely.
Trump: Good. After you.
[Break in video]
Trump: Come on, Billy, don’t be shy.
Bush: Soon as a beautiful woman shows up, he just, he takes off. This always happens.
Trump: Get over here, Billy.
Zucker: I’m sorry, come here.
Bush: Let the little guy in here, come on.
Zucker: Yeah, let the little guy in. How you feel now? Better? I should actually be in the middle.
Bush: It’s hard to walk next to a guy like this.
Zucker: Here, wait, hold on.
Bush: Yeah, you get in the middle, there we go.
Trump: Good, that’s better.
Zucker: This is much better. This is —
Trump: That’s better.
Bush: Now, if you had to choose honestly between one of us. Me or the Donald?
Trump: I don’t know, that’s tough competition.
Zucker: That’s some pressure right there.
Bush: Seriously, if you had — if you had to take one of us as a date.
Zucker: I have to take the Fifth on that one.
Zucker: Yup — I’ll take both.
Trump: Which way?
Zucker: Make a right. Here we go. [inaudible]
Bush: Here he goes. I’m gonna leave you here.
Bush: Give me my microphone.
Trump: O.K. Oh, you’re finished?
Bush: You’re my man, yeah.
Trump: Oh, good.
Bush: I’m gonna go do our show.
Zucker: Oh, you wanna reset? O.K
Ten years ago, with no political ambitions Donald was a pig. And he's still a pig. But is this a big deal? Michelle Obama says his words "chill her to the core" CP doesn't doubt FLOTUS is frigid but I doubt it's Donald Trump's fault.
Locker room banter? Heard it all my life, not sure what else you want to call it, just bullshitting. I suspect those who swear they've never heard such disrespect of woman haven't had much a life, or many friends.
I guess Michelle Obama never heard Chelsey Handler discribe her method of weeding out potential dates, yes size matters. Or Kathy Griffins's unwanted New Year's Eve crotch kiss planted on Anderson Cooper.
Cedar's Take: The over the top response to Trump's words is beyond the understanding of blue collar America. Of course we would all prefer our commander in chief speak in the eloquence of royalty, yet this is 2016 where every word is subject to public review and replay.
And apparently Hillary Clinton has a trashy mouth on her that rivals that of a former President, a colorful speaker who could curse a blue streak of explitieves for ten minutes straight and never repeat a word. LBJ.
Bottom line it's just bullshiting. And will cost him the election.

From the Charloote Business Journal:
Friday, September 30, 2016
Charlootte is about to get a dose of real, as Charloote's African American Community is about to be served up another ration of shit.
Just as the fires finally die down and life returns to normal CMPD decides to release move video of the Scott shooting. This editor's uncut version promises to be more bloody and even more gruesome than the small edited version released last week.
This is real, and Scott moaning in agony as his life slips away is troubling.
From the AP:
The announcement came after an attorney for a coalition of 10 media organizations organized by The Charlotte Observer and including The Associated Press, sent a letter to city officials on Friday requesting again that the video be released.
Media lawyer Jonathan Buchan had said earlier that he had discussed the contents of the police videos with Judy Emken, a police department attorney. Buchan quoted Emken as saying that the only police body camera video of the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott lasts about 16 minutes.
About two minutes of the video has been released, including the shooting itself. According to Buchan, Emken said the remaining 14 minutes is very bloody and includes the sounds of Scott groaning as he dies. "The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has made arrangements for members of Mr. Scott's family to review the remaining body-worn camera and dash cam video of events following the shooting in its entirety," the statement released by the department said. "Mr. Scott's family has since requested in writing at 4:49 p.m. today that the video footage be released publicly."
On Wednesday Charlotte and Mecklenburg County terminated the state of emergency placed into effect after protests over the shooting death. The shooting led to two nights of violent protests, including unrest hours after the shooting Sept. 20 and more violence in downtown Charlotte the next night. The city lifted a curfew that went into effect after the shooting last Monday.

Once again proof our judicial system is out of control.

A prefect storm of conditions came together to give Charlotte its first all out riot in, well actually Charlotte's first real riot ever.
Think about that, first real riot EVER!
Not during the turbulent 60's or strife littered busing and court ordered integration days of the early 70's has Charlotte has a real full blown riot.
Outside of where? They certainly did just drive down from Baltimore or catch a bus from St. Louis? Did someone charter a plane and fly a bunch of trouble makers in from the west coast? When did the "Boyz" from Compton decide that they had to come to Charlotte?
Sorry Virginia there is no Santa Claus, and Charlotte's night of mayhem is not magic rather it is a big thank you for all the transplanted thugs and hood rats who have migrated to the queen city due it our very generous welfare and social needs programs.
"Come to Charlotte free stuff for your entire family and... we are close to WalMart." "Yo GTG we be heading to Wally Mart right now gonna get me a 60 inch flat screen tonight!"
So where are the "Black Leaders" when all hell is breaking out on the streets of North East Charlotte?
Other than a timid tweet last night the Mayor Jennifer Robert's is talking about HB2 and the tranny bathroom cause and not calling for calm.
After a night of violent protests in Charlotte, chief Putney tried dispel rumors about what happened to Keith Lamont Scott.
Scott, a father of seven, was killed by CMPD Offices in an apartment complex parking lot as officers looked for another man named in a warrant they were trying to serve.
His family said Scott, an African-American, was unarmed and sitting in his car reading a book, waiting for his son to come home from school.
But Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said Scott exited his car with a gun, not a book. The Chief said officers couldn't find a book at the scene. "It's time for the voiceless majority to stand up and be heard," the police chief, who is also black, said Wednesday. "It's time to change the narrative because I can tell you from the facts that the story's a little bit different as to how it's been portrayed so far, especially through social media."
According to the CMPD Chief: "We found gun, not book" CMPD Chief Kerr Putney has stated that both evidence at the scene and witnesses support police claims that Scott was armed.
According to MSM reports Officers repeatedly told Scott to drop his gun, when he did not comply Officer Brentley Vinson shot him.
Keith Lamont Scott died of his wounds on the way to CMC Main.
Here's where it gets murky, Putney who is often described as an "Uncle Tom" said he was not certain whether Scott pointed his gun at officers because wait for it "; Vinson was not wearing a body camera at the time". Seriously you've got to be kidding? No body camera? Wasn't that the big budget item approved by Charlotte City Council in the aftermath of the Jonathan Ferrell shooting?
CP is hearing however that Scott is seen exiting the car with a gun in his hand on a CMPD dash cam video.
Cedar's Take: They best release the video pronto, I don't give a rats ass what the state law says. Release it or else all hell will continue.
If they don't release it I can only say we are again left to question the transparency of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. And the thugs capitalize on this lack of openness.
At least Officer Vinson wasn't thrown under the bus just hours after his deadly encounter. I'm sure race had nothing to do with that decision. Right? Right?
