5 things to know about the tea party movement    Politics
1.  The main gripe with the Tea Partiers is Obama’s health care bill.  2.  They seem stupid by demanding NO health care plan, even though the rest of America is for it.  They’ve already said they’re against government programs, except those that benefit THEM, showing them to be greedy parasites.   3.  If they want to appear to be intelligent, they would have compromised, and would be supporting one of the other health care plans that wouldn’t bankrupt the nation, and one would even make a profit while fighting corruption.  It’s a win-win-win situation. Until they show some intelligence, they’re doomed to failure.  4118

[QUOTE who="Nobama"]<quoted text>Alright then, your opinion, not mine. But while you're ahead of yourself, you make it sound like Iraq was a bad thing. Bush sent his troops to Iraq to find weapons of mass destruction. Just because none were found doesn't mean they weren't there. Also, while we were there, Sadam was executed.  I call that pretty good.[/QUOTE]
I call your post a total flight from reality.     It's pretty bad when you have to go that far to justify your conclusions about how life works. 4146
[QUOTE who="Dingo"]Has nothing to do with my opinion boss man, it is a fact, gw bush used Clinton's military to invade Iraq... so it must be clinton's fault, right? Iraq was a Very bad thing, it killed over 4,500 American Troops, what did WE accomplished? OK we pop the head of a dictator, I don't have a problem with that, was it worth over 4,500 american Troop lives? was it worth over 20,000 American Troop maimed for life?  You tell me boss man, was it worth it? <quoted text>[/QUOTE]
And, was it worth lying to the American people AGAIN, reminding them that they should never trust their leaders?  The worst thing is that, because of what we did to Iraq, we can expect that to be the future home of terrorism aimed at US.    WE didn't impeach Bush, WE didn't prosecute him for treason, WE didn't hold anybody else accountable, so WE will pay the price.  Bush will never be the victim of a terrorist - WE are paying to keep him safe for the rest of his life.  There is a solution: (next post)   4187

[QUOTE who="Le Jimbo"]<quoted text>Do you really believe your garbage has any impact on the readers other than a good laugh?[/QUOTE]
Yes, it does.  People do learn from hearing the truth.  I notice you didn't have a single intelligent defense of their lies.  Let The Schooling Begin wrote: <quoted text>This has NOTHING to do with the documented FACTS that Fox sought legal right to LIE to their viewers, that they are constantly being caught giving misinformation on the air, AND that a credible survey proves that watching Fox maks you LESS knowledgable of the world and your country.    Does watching Fox also hinder your ability to stay on topic when responding to others posts? As much as it happens on these threads I suspect it may.  4189

Morons are those who blindly follow either political party.  Currently that award goes to Democrats who support Obama's bill, trusting a politician, like naive overgrown children.  They refuse to face reality, or even question why legislators were forced to vote on it without even seeing what was in it?  That's so OUTRAGEOUS that every intelligent American is angry about it.        They refuse to ask about why Obama sabotaged ALL COMPETITION, even though that's the American way.  Most people don't even know they had other health care choices.       Obama wanted HIS plan, not what was best for us, or one that would actually make a profit instead of his financial disaster.  (next post)   4598

[QUOTE who="Nobama"]Being a member of the Tea Party, I think I should display the real 5 things to know about the Tea Party.
1). They are filled with republicans, moderates, and even some democrats who are tired of the direction this country is going towards.
2). They are led under the rule of Sarah Palin, a strong woman who has insults hurled at her by the liberals.  3). Stereotypes are thrown at them by liberals. These include racist and sexist, although the democrats have a history of beating up black Tea Partiers, and although Sarah Palin is the leader.  4). They follow pure American patriotism, and live by the example of the true American example, by preaching about little government. After all, without that, we would still be ruled by King George III.    5). Their persistance and message will spread throughout the country, and eventually, this message will hit the democrats hard in November. That is what the Tea Party is all about.[/QUOTE]
Even though I disagree with almost everything the Tea Party stands for, I admire their courage for standing up to the Republican Party. 
Those who still remain with either major party, after all they’ve done to us, are pathetic cowards, too weak and stupid to even think for themselves.   Unfortunately Tea Partiers don't realize yet that they're not winning their biggest fight, against Obama's health care bill:

If you are okay with that, you are a socialist.[/QUOTE]
It doesn't violate human rights, but it does violate our legal rights, and if it's not defeated, it will lead to violation of human rights.        People:  We still don't know how bad that bill is, but we do know that he's become more of a dictator than a president.      You've been told countless times how to defeat it, but if you love the insurance companies that wrote the bill, more than your own families, then continue to do nothing.

[QUOTE who="TeaParty Proud"]For those of you who would like to educate yourselves, you'll find the Tea Party Patriots Philosophy Statement below. Follow the link to learn more:  "Tea Party Patriots, Inc. as an organization believes in the Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. Tea Party Patriots, Inc. is a non-partisan grassroots organization of individuals united by our core values derived from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America, the Bill Of Rights as explained in the Federalist Papers. We recognize and support the strength of grassroots organization powered by activism and civic responsibility at a local level. We hold that the United States is a republic conceived by its architects as a nation whose people were granted "unalienable rights" by our Creator. Chiefly among these are the rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Tea Party Patriots stand with our founders, as heirs to the republic, to claim our rights and duties which preserve their legacy and our own. We hold, as did the founders, that there exists an inherent benefit to our country when private property and prosperity are secured by natural law and the rights of the individual."[/QUOTE]
The facts are: 1.  The Tea Party movement gained national attention almost overnight when they began protesting against Obama's health care bill.  2.  The American people are slowly becoming more accepting of his bill, just as he knew they would.  That's why he told them to give it time, not because it works, but because they give up easily. 3.  That bill is helping to destroy the U.S. financially, and will leave us with less freedom and more government control, until it will be too late to protest against it.  4.  If all right-wing people were SMART, they'd demand one of the better plans that is voluntary and doesn't involve the IRS.  The longer they wait, fewer people will vote Republican, and more will back Obama. It's NOT INTELLIGENT to demand NO PLAN because most intelligent people want one, but not Obama's.    (next post)   4803

It is not that we disagree with you. It is just that we are educated americans who completely understand the doublespeak of political and corporate leaders. We see you and we understand you actual agenda. Your rhetoric of fear did not win in 2008 and will not win in 2012. We do not live in 1950 America. we are a healthy diverse and forward thinking culture who will not tolerate the regressive speech of racist and bigoted selfish minded people. Your kind continue to be a blight on our great country and truly do not deserve intellectual debate because you are the first group to say something stupid and resort to senseless name calling. Your culture has been revealed and we are simply keeping an eye on you because we know that you will revert to church bombings, sniper fire and other violent crimes when no one wants to hear what you say. You are adolescent in your behaviors and very very dangerous to the fabric of a progressing American society.[/QUOTE]
Truly intelligent people realize the danger in Obama's bill and join together to fight it, instead of each other.  You're not going to change each other's minds, and the more time you spend attacking people's beliefs, the more your real enemies gain on you.  You CAN stop Obama's bill.  He wouldn't have spent so much time trying to convince people to accept it if your voice didn't matter.  So, there's still time.

[QUOTE who="The laughing liberal"]Obama refuses to secure the Border:   (R) Se. Kyle reveals private Immigration conversation with Obama.   Obama said he "Would NOT secure the border because (R) Senators would NOT vote for His Comprehensive Immigrations Reform then!" The WH claimed "that's Not what Obama said claiming comprehensive Immigration reform is needed to secure the border!" ROFL!  (R) Sen. Kyle said he and the Maggot were the only 2 in the room and he stands by his statement!    Lou Dobbs weighed in saying he believes Kyle. Said Obama is fairly clear that securing the border would hurt Illegal Immigration legislation and that any spin about his efforts to secure the border are laughable. Obama is basically holding border states security Hostage for his Amnesty legislation while he tries to file a lawsuit against the AZ Immigration law mirroring Federal Law. Meanwhile American citizens are being Murdered and Kidnapped!
Here's why American have to unite behind health care reform FIRST: It will cost us a fortune, not nearly as much as illegals do. Most people are not affected by them because they live in other areas, whereas health care affects almost everybody. This doesn't involve IRS Gestapo domination, whereas Obama's health care bill does. There are more reasons, but the POINT I'VE MADE FOR A YEAR NOW, trying to get the idiot masses to fight for themselves, is that we have to join together for the common good, replace Obama's bill with one of the much better ones, and then proceed to save the country by taking power away from the traitors. (see my previous post)   4862

[QUOTE who="Peralta"]From what I've been able to determine, those who loosely ally themselves under the Tea Party umbrella are actually wanting the U.S. to go back to what the original Republican Party stood for.
Check out the 2nc section "Ideology"\ "Republicans also show concerns about having big government in charge of such vital issues as food, shelter, or health care, as they believe the private sector and/or the individual are better suited to control their own lives. President Ronald Reagan who became a Republican in the early 1960s after being a New Dealer at one time, has been quoted as saying "Government is not the solution, it is the problem." [/QUOTE]
Every intelligent person knows the Republican Party was a liberal party, but now is conservative.  It's the party of lies, still trying to fool the masses into thinking that conservatives fought for blacks, when the reality is that they know better, which is why they're mostly Democratic today.  It's truly stupid to think that conservatives wanted to free the slaves. When Ronald Reagan was president, he not only represented the government, he used that power to commit treason, and to violate legal and human rights.  He also was nothing but a liar and a fraud.
Hopefully, every time a Republican tries to scam the public, a liberal will take the time to respond, so that nobody is taken advantage of by ongoing Republican propaganda.   4872

64 Percent of Republicans Want Palin to Run for President in 2012      US Politics 
[QUOTE who="It aint necessarily so"][<quoted text>I see it differently.
[1] First, illegal immigrants in America don't get anything that isn't given them. If they were a drain on America, that's America's fault. I promise you that if you come to Mexico illegally, you won't get a thing on the public dime, unless you're caught.
Incidentally, I just read that most American living in Mexico are living here illegally, as their are 130,000 with long term visas out of about 600,000 total (some say up to a million). And one is my neighbor. She is no drain on the local economy at all because she gets nothing that she doesn't buy. And if she tries to interface with the government in any way, she'll be deported and dumped in San Diego, Laredo or El Paso.
So, if you go broke giving your wealth away, I wouldn't blame the ones who came to get it.
[2] Second, I think that Mexican peasants working peon jobs in America for minimum wage or less are giving more than they are getting, and their loss will be catastrophic to local economies and lead to higher prices everywhere, especially groceries. I am anxious to see the effect of the new Arizona legislation of the Arizonan economy if it is enforced. My prediction is that it will be agribusiness magnates that get that law repealed or defanged, not progressives.  [3] Third, I think America is probably on its way down to second-and-a-half word status, a cut above third world, as is Mexico, as Mexico rises to that same level. And it has nothing to do with Mexican illegalls in America. Their smoothing out the continent. NAFTA, baby. Canada will probably fall some, America more, and Mexico rise in the process. The jobs are coming here as are billions in retiree's dollars, and billions being spent on medical tourism. Mexico has very little debt or interest payment, and has a balanced budget. And no mortgages or mortgage crisis. It seems to be that the go-ahead for a unified North American Union has may already have been given (I don't believe that the American people make these decisions any more - that ship has seemingly sailed).  New north-south corridors (highways) are being built, like the four lane highway through Mexico that I believe is expected to be a continuation of I-35. The smart money seems to be on a single currency as well, an "amero" analogous to the euro. In my opinion, that's why the American currency is gradually becoming more colorful - orange on the ten, purple on the five - to get Americans ready for what the kind of colorful currency the rest of the world uses.
But you can expect the American media to scapegoat Mexican illegals as a distraction from who it is that is really responsible for their economic woes, and why they are occurring.  A country doesn't go down the stairs as fast as America has unless somebody is kicking it down. And it's not peasants coming to your farms to pick your lettuce for next to nothing.[/QUOTE]
Excellent comments and insight.  “(I don't believe that the American people make these decisions any more - that ship has seemingly sailed).”   I must hold onto a belief that the ignorant masses can still wake up in time, and will take back the country, using the one issue that most people are involved in already:  health care. People, take advantage of this issue NOW - read and make your voice heard, and help penalize the media and legislators - (next post) 4836

His supporters think he's the greatest, but he's taking a lot of heat over his healthcare reform disaster. It adds to our massive deficit, and is set up to be more government welfare, so a large percentage of the population is against it.  There is a better plan, a compromise, taking the best of both sides, but the masses are frankly too stupid to get it. It's pretty simple, but they would rather bi!ch forever than have to think for themselves, so it's doomed to failure. I can understand why the rest of the world has a negative attitude toward the U.S., but remember, there is a minority of intelligent people who are suffering because of the stupidity of the masses who absolutely refuse to change.

What’s the matter with you?  Can’t you comprehend what you read?  I said just the opposite of what you’re accusing me of saying.
People:  I think the Insurance Corruption plan is great because it competes against insurance companies who are killing people for greed.
The plan has a lot of other great advantages, so I encourage all countries to consider it.  It’s a compromise - not a free ride, but no greed either.  It’s voluntary, so that eliminates the IRS (America’s Gestapo) involvement, and much more. 
The reason the media has buried all other healthcare choices, is because they’re better than Obama’s, and he wants the credit, plus there’s evidence that he’s giving the corrupt insurance industry the profits they want.   11

Illegal immigration doesn't shove the IRS Gestapo down our throats, whereas Obama's health care bill does.
There are more reasons, but the POINT I'VE MADE FOR A YEAR NOW, trying to get the idiot masses to fight for themselves, is that we have to join together for the common good, replace Obama's bill with one of the much better ones, and then proceed to save the country by taking power away from the traitors. The masses need to learn what the illegals have known all along - work TOGETHER for the common good of your people, instead of trying to fight them AND illegals at the same time. (next post)   299

I said I was arrested for standing up for my rights and for the rights of other American citizens. Yea the Democrats do not like it whenever someone points out what they are doing. I was picked up and held for 3 months once in Tampa for protesting the conditions at the VA Hospital in Tampa. I was not even on VA property at the time. I was arrested again in Oak Ridge for exercising my rights as a citizen of Oak Ridge when a problem with the city occurred. I made arrangement to pay half of my electric bill one month and the rest of it the following month. The city cut off my electricity and when I asked why the City's electrical department got very belligerent with me so I went down to talk with the Mayor to get it fixed. I talked with the Mayor and the City Manager and got it resolved. As I was leaving the building I was arrested for threatening the manager of the City's Electrical Department. I asked the cops at the time that if I had done what she said I did then why did I go directly to the Mayor's Office. They arrested me anyway. I spent a night in jail and all charges were dropped a week later.
Oh yea I was picked up twice by the FBI for telling people to get out and Vote over the internet and using a very powerful bomb as a parody to demonstrate the power a single vote has.

To the masses:  Keep it up, just keep waiting until you suffer before getting involved, let corruption grow so powerful that by the time you figure it out, it will be too late. You've let them get the amount of control they have now, and they won't easily give it up.  So, the longer you wait, the harder it will be.  There is no free ride, no political welfare. FIGHT BACK (next post)  350

The worst part of child molestation is that it influences and haunts them the rest of their lives. This pope was a Hitler Youth, which have influenced him.  Maybe he embraced evil and rejected God as a youth, but HAS earned how play the Catholic religion game. It's so clear - They're all flaunting Godlessness, which only appeals to some of the dumbest people on earth.
[QUOTE who="Desperate Dan"]<quoted text>Hatred and terms of service. Who do these apply to and who do they not apply to. These terms are relative and very dependent on the society you were brought up in.  For example, I have had FOUR posts removed from this page alone by the Topix moderators. All posts were relevant to the discussion and powerful because they contained links to quality news and information sources. By removing these posts the Topix editorship has chosen a path against free speech and opted to skew the dialogue in favour of those who come on here to vent their hatred against 1 BILLION human beings who chose to follow the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.  I put it to you that both hatred and corrupt terms of service are the norm for this forum which above all else revels in spreading hatred and disruption.

I can back up your accusations about links being deleted.  I couldn't even tell you how many times they've done that to me.  It's strange how they leave some of the most abusive posts, and links that are just garbage, but delete important ones.  The Religion Forum is the worst.
Here's one that's regularly deleted because it dares to criticize Obama's health care bill, gives the names of other choices that are far superior to his, valid criticisms of his bill, and ways to penalize deaf legislators and the biased media for denying us the right to have a choice.
Obama also denied single payer advocates the right to attend his meetings.  It's clearly all about his ego, and he wants total credit.  It's also about a sleazy deal made with the corrupt insurance industry.  Why else would they have to use the IRS Gestapo to enforce it?  We are in real danger with this bill and need to demand one of the better ones.   Here is the information (one plan is at insurance corruption. com) - let me know if this next post is deleted:   163  164

CNN: Border killing a symbol of failed policy    World News
Buckeye wrote:  Let me tell you about a little known story about the border patrol. My father was a proud war veteran serving in the Korean AND Vietnam wars. Upon his return to El Paso (mid 60’s) from San Francisco, my father laded at the El Paso International airport wearing his army jacket and two border patrol agents approached him and asked him for his green card. My father could not believe them, he just returned home from serving his second tour and those cowards asked him for his papers. He politely explained to them that he had just returned from war and asked them if they had served? The two cowards got upset and pulled my father to the side and searched his duffle bag and patted him down. One agent was Latino and the other was Anglo. My father was so upset he let them know that if he ever saw them ever again he would make things right. Several months passed and my father was a regular at the tap bar downtown… day my father was at the tap with some of his army buddies and in come the two coward border patrol agents who were off duty. My father approached them and asked if they remember him….they did. My father then proceeded to ask them to go outside and have a talk. My father persisted until both of the cowards stepped outside with him. My father assaulted both agents and showed then what a REAL man in uniform was. Several weeks later the cowards started to harass my father by telephone, there was always a parked car in front of his house with bp agents inside 24/7, my mother received a death threat one night while my father was at work so my father called up his friends at the FBI. The FBI tapped our phone and investigated the harassment. Once the cowards were caught harassing my family the FBI called my father in and the two agents were there with the head of the border patrol along with the FBI. The head of the border patrol asked my father what he wanted to do, noting that the two coward agents had families and to take their families into consideration and if he decided to follow through with charges it would ruin their careers. My father asked the cowards if they loved their family, and if they though my father was worth them losing their careers. The two cowards apologized to my father and our family. The FBI warned the agents that if there was any more trouble the FBI would pursue charges. If you look up the El Paso times archives you will find an article titled “Border Patrol Agents assaulted”….my dad still has the article. Based on my family’s experience, I think the border patrol is a joke. As many agents as there are patrolling the us mexico border, the mojados laugh at them and have them figured out. The border patrol are nothing but Coca Cola cowboys with green shorts and guns.  Buckeye
ME -  I wish your dad had prosecuted, but maybe he feared what would happen to him and his family would be much worse.       This country is corrupt through and through - all because there is no accountability. The American people need to come together on one issue, and win, to take back their country. They've already decided that issue is health care, since most are against Obama's plan which is so abusive that he has to use the IRS Gestapo to enforce it.    We want a good plan, and there are others that are far better, but the media has buried them. We MUST sever the ties between the corrupt insurance industry, their legal parasites, and our political whores. People, you can do as little or as much as you want, but everybody has to carry their own weight in this.          Here's the information and solutions:  (next post)

The only solution that makes sense is for Americans to join together in the issue that most agree on, and that is that they want health care, but not Obama's abusive plan.  By winning that battle, we will have the clout to move on to other issues, and illegals are one that needs to be tackled next.  There is a solution that would get most illegals out quickly, without violence, but to make that public now would sabotage it. All this was made public last year, and here we are a year later, and it's worse.   Why? Because the idiot masses looked at the solution and said "Duhhh, what?" Then they moved on, and continued their endless bi!ching and complaining. Stupidity is our biggest problem.  So, we have to educate them. The media is another.  So, we have to spread the word. (next post)  128

Throwing rocks can "KILL" or do serious harm at a minimum. Rocks have been used as weapons in wars throughout the centuries. Not to mention all the women who have been put to death under different religious laws. Even today. I am sorry to hear of the death. But I wonder what you would have done. As you are holding one criminal and suddenly rocks are being throw at you. At the point of defence you are not "measuring footages. --- Maybe ways to add security to the area, or by the bridge. Might be: Add additional walls below the bridge. This would still allow water flow and slow down the path under the bridge. Or maybe the U.S. and Mexico law enforcement could agree to some kind of warning system light/horn, etc. That if either side sees a violation going on below the bridge. The law enforcement from both sides are alerted. This attention may also discourage crossing in that area. Anyway ...Later [/QUOTE]

Nov 15, 2009 My ancestors were British and I hate seeing the violence and animosity resulting from immigration in England. YOUR ancestors fought for that land -- what would they think of their sacrifices today?  It's even worse with Muslims, since their religion is often violent, with the goal of some that it has to be the only religion in the world. That doesn't make any sense, but fanatics don't think things through. I watched a documentary last week, showing that they don't even learn the language in Germany and keep themselves separate, which means that something is wrong and it will come to violence.  We in the U.S. have to be a melting-pot, but you didn't, and I hope you can take back your heritage. 6

What I don't understand is, why have Muslims moved to other countries?  They don't want to become part of the culture, and often want to be completely separate from that culture. Check out what they ARE doing.  If they did it for their children, then they wouldn't be exposing them to these kinds of societies.  If they wanted a better life, then they would have changed.   If it's for an underlying religious agenda, then beware.  128

Their health plan is so seriously flawed that the taxpayers have to DEMAND a good plan.  First, since insurance companies are the problem, we should not be forced to subsidize them -- just the opposite, the government should compete AGAINST them.  That's the ONLY way to control their criminal activities.  The plan at insurance corruption. com does just that.  Speak now, and loudly, and often, or suffer the consequences.  487

Insurance companies are multi-billion dollar industries -- that's how they could afford to force us all to buy insurance from them. Instead of lowering premiums, they bribe our leaders. Yeah, they really care about us.

What's worse than ignorance is spreading lies.  You must be going through life just listening to yourself talk, because if you paid any attention to the media, you'd know that insurance companies recorded record profits and their profits are in the multi-billions.
They're able to buy off the President and Congress, so they don't need little old you to lie for them.  They're experts at lying and deceiving.
For example, they paid legislators to write a law making it mandatory that, in court, no juror is allowed to know if an insurance company is part of the litigation.  That was done to protect them BECAUSE THE PUBLIC KNOWS HOW CORRUPT THEY ARE and could come back with a verdict punishing them because MOST PEOPLE HATE THEM - and that's based on their own experiences with them.  So, when you try and act innocent, you make a fool of yourself.  You're either extremely stupid or are part of the corruption in some way.    571

The gov. has no RIGHT to tell me I must buy a product intensely not wanted ---- but personal rights seem to have no value anymore.
Socialism seems to be defined as the government having power & control vs. the people having power and control over how they live their own personal lives. This administration says God bless America, but they tell us what's acceptable, that they are gifted, and we can't think for ourselves; if they want to bless America, they could try listening to the people --- not that the Republicans are any better than the Democrats, but the Republicans should be listened to, not insulted by saying I'll listen to any reasonable alternative ---- when there were, and are many reasonable alternatives that this socialistic administration won't listen to.
The gov. already has a lot of control over private insurers --- by reading the healthscare bill mandates, private insurers' will be forced out of businesses; people will be forced to pay for an inefficient excuse for healthcare --- government run ---- not dumping on the CBO, but people that believe this administration will save money with this healthscare scheme are delusional. Now that people have to live with the consequences of this atrocity, some are finally waking up ---- it's going to be real hard to reverse the damage this piece of cr** will dump on the Republic. People seem to believe 2+2 = 5, the sooner we realize the elites know more than we do --- the sooner this compassionate administration, that's “representing” what's left of the Republic will be happy.
You're so right - there's something wrong when the government forces us to buy insurance.  The insurance companies are behind it all (having repeatedly met with Obama, and their lobbyists with the legislators), so the only solution involves cutting them out completely.
What's really scary is that there are OTHER choices out there, but the media has buried them. So, we have to fight the media, the government, and the insurance industry - all have agendas (money and control over us) which are sabotaging our freedoms.
If we don't come together, Republicans, Democrats, and independents, to fight this, we won't come together on anything, and we will lose ground that we probably won't get back in our lifetimes. This is extremely important, we must TOGETHER demand a choice they won't like, such as the following, and the only way I know to fight back is to go to:  575

There's a good reason why they call us Yanks.  We're kind of arrogant to call ourselves Americans, as if South America, Central America, and the rest of North American countries aren't.  The trouble is, it's hard to come up with a name that uniquely 'United Statesian'.  388

End in Sight, Health Care Battle Tilts Obama's Way
[QUOTE who="Stoneman"]<quoted text>By the way-- if the objective is to increase competition, why are you liberals so dead-set against dropping the rule that restricts availability of insurance to within states?[/QUOTE]
The intention of the plan at insurance corruption. com is to greatly increase competition, so why are Republicans against it?  Because they, like Democrats, want the insurance companies' financial support.  They're all alike - putting themselves first.  34
[QUOTE who="Socialist Obama"]New England Jouranl of Medicine said one-third of doctors would added that with 30 million new people, and you have health care rationing and Americans dying. You don't cure a headache with a shotgun blast to yor head. To hell with you Obama, you GOD DAMNED socialits scumbag. 
Attention "Progressives," As you ram this bill down the throats of an unwilling public, please read the AP article below. Also remember Caterpillar's announcement that Obamacare will cost them $100 million per year, beginning IMMEDIATELY. More bad news will come as people dissect this 2,700 page monstrosity.  So the phony cost projections that "Progressives" forced on the CBO are already coming unglued. What's going to happen once businesses realize what this legislation entails? What do YOU think the impact is going to be on JOBS?! Creating a giant Rube Goldberg machine to regulate 15% of the economy in one fell swoop is pure insanity under the best of circumstances. Legislation "crafted" behind closed doors to meet phony "targets" and placate special interests guarantee an absolute disaster.  The Congressional Budget Office said Friday that rolling back a programmed cut in Medicare fees to doctors would cost $208 billion over 10 years. If added back to the health care overhaul bill, it would wipe out all the deficit reduction, leaving the legislation $59 billion in the red. aka 'Doctor fix.' The IRS/Treasury will look into 300 million Americans and look at ever aspect of your life and waiting to see if yor are paying for health insurance or you will be heavily fined, but this will NOT include minorities of white trasg who will receive govermnet subsidies PAID for by you suckers for the first 4 years while you get NOTHING in return. They should at least call this bill what it is.  It's not healthcare reform - It's healthcare "welfare"  Meanwhile, 38 states (76%)have filed suit against it, on Tenth Amendment concerns, individuals file against it on Ninth Amendment concerns, and Boehner, et. al., file against it on process concerns (see the Chadha decision; process matters.)  Job 1 next year will be to replace Obmacare with common sense, INCREMENTAL reforms. In the meantime, PLEASE STOP DRINKING THE KOOL-AID!
Medicare fix would push health care into the red  11.43 million American people, are on unemployment right now. Obama has a new bribery plan to buy a vote called "the Bismark Bailout" another Obama bribe. This dog bill will pass one way or another with strong armed tactics, bribes, payoffs, lies etc.  Wind power lies.   Obama to Iranians: We want brighter future for you[/QUOTE]
You should have put all this energy and rage into demanding the plan, which wouldn't have been a burden at all, but those who are against any health care are too dumb to know when it's best to compromise, especially when everybody benefits.   144
[QUOTE who="Skizazz"]<quoted text>I think you've left out a group as well. It's a mistake to assume that all of the people that have don't have health insurance either can't afford it or are just to irresponsible to get it.  I'm sure there's quite a few people, like me, who have made an educated decision NOT to get it. Everybody agrees that insurance companies make big profits, right? What does that means that, over time, most people pay in FAR more than they take out. Correct?  Since that's the case, I've made the decision to keep the money I would pay for insurance and invest it. Essentially, you could say that I'm self insured. In the past twenty years I have incurred ZERO medical bills of my own. That means all the money my employers paid in the past for my medical insurance was basically wasted. Since I started my own business roughly seven years ago I have been without health insurance. Over that time, we have only incurred one medical of $4000 when my little girl had to be taken to the emergency roof for a high fever. I just paid the $4000 out-of-pocket. For a family of five I would be paying far more than $4000 PER YEAR for coverage so I am currently WAY ahead by not having it.
Is it a gamble not having insurance, of course. However, most investments are a gamble. The money I could have used for insurance has been invested and has paid off very well. I now have plenty of money set aside should a problem arise. However, that money is invested and making money for me instead of somebody else. [/QUOTE]
Better than investing, the plan at insurance corruption. com was about using the money to pay down the deficit, IF you care about the country and future generations.  It would do that by cutting out all insurance companies, and using those profits for OUR deficit.  That's one big reason why legislators were against it - THEY want insurance company payoffs.  So, it was an attack on that corruption too.  The good news?  It's NEVER too late to demand it.   147
Jimmy Worley wrote: <quoted text>Dumb idea cutting out all insurance companies under our current system! You may be able to self insure yourself and have been lucky so far but sudden illnesses and diseases and accidents for even those of us in the best of health can easily wipe us out and shift the burden to the rest of the public. Also the great majority of people are in no position to insure themselves and wouldn't do so even if they could! Joe Sixpack would rather buy a new SUV and a 60 inch plasma and take a cruise to Mexico before he put anything away for a possible (and as we get older probable!) medical catastrophe! I would like to see the insurance companies eliminated from the medical equation since they take away about a third of every dollar we spend. I favor a single payer system like they have in Canada and quite a few Democratic legislators were for that too. However public sentiment was against it and so were the Republicans. Jesus they were bellowing about "a massive government takeover of our health care system" for this bill (which it wasn't!). Can't you hear the screaming if a single payer system was proposed. They would have been equating it to a land attack from Moscow! Unfortunately at least for now we're stuck with the insurance companies, like it or not (and I don't!)

[QUOTE who="Dr Robert Branson"]<quoted text>I don't doubt the corruption in the insurance industry at all! They are unfortunately in my opinion a necessary evil that we have to deal with in today's society. I repeat that even though you may be able to comfortably insure yourself, the great majority of the rest us, even if we are fairly well off, simply cannot. A good friend of mine's wife had some severe and life threatening medical problems last year. She had been just laid off but fortunately had COBRA (continued) coverage from her former employer, although she had to now pay the full cost of that coverage. Six months later her medical bills exceeded $750,000, three quarters of a million freaking dollars! Without that insurance coverage it would have forced the family into bankruptcy. By the way they are a thirty something couple...medical disasters don't always happen to the old or infirm! Fine if you can insure yourself but most of us can't! Hell most of us can't even adequately insure ourselves to prevent the financial disaster a car accident with no injuries can cause today...we are a bunch of sue crazy bastards you know![/QUOTE]
NOTHING is a necessary evil - that's pathetic.  It just proves that the American people are too lazy to demand that they be prosecuted for the felonies they commit, just like anybody else.  It's sick to say that they can get away with murder because they are wealthy.  It's worshipping money and power. You are either not reading the insurance corruption. com plan, or not comprehending it.  Try again - it has nothing to do with anybody insuring themselves. It's similar to the plan Rep. Grayson created in which people are allowed to just buy into Medicare, except that it's more like people creating their own profitable insurance company and buying into that. PEOPLE:  Don't ever let anybody tell you that you have to suffer with corruption.  You are the money behind the corruption, therefore you are the power behind it - it would not exist if you didn't let it.  The insurance corruption plan has another benefit.  When a disaster like Katrina or 9-11 hits, you don't have to be left with nothing because your insurance company defrauds you.  This plan offers insurance that covers disasters and much more, also making a profit.  This plan is far superior and the only thing that stands in the way of its success is stupidity and laziness.  This will show if those Americans want to change, want to survive, and want to stop dumping their garbage onto their children.

I agree, at least Republicans are fighting for what they believe in, and if Democrats are smart they'll use all that Republican rebellion to demand a voluntary health care plan that eliminates the cause of our problems, the corrupt insurance industry. There are at least two plans, so if Democrats want to avoid losing elections for a long, long time, and if they want a good health care plan, they need to work hard to promote these plans. If you don't know about these plans, it's because your media deliberately kept that information from you, forcing you to take one side or the other.  Let them know that they defrauded you and have lost you as a customer or viewer.  Here are the plans: (next post) 69

For Bill Maher, religion is a joke                  Religion
America's phony religious leaders, who worship money and power, are to blame for the people who see religion as a fraud.
Beginning in 1980, they became a political entity, telling people that God wanted them to vote for Reagan, and every Republican since then.
They insure with Guide One, and insurance company that vigorously defends child abuse, with the commission of hundreds of felonies.  Those who insure with them can expect to be victimized and lose everything they own. Church leaders have driven people away for generations, and those people often left Christianity behind too, and then had children who became atheists.   That's why the Mormon Church is so popular - they're practicing religion as it should be.  Unfortunately, that church is a cult, not a Christian church because people basically save themselves with their good deeds, instead of giving the Lord all the credit.  If you're in one of those churches, get out.  Join with a few people and meet in homes, if there isn't a good church nearby. protestant protest.

Jesus, the messiah, the christ, the son of the living God said plain and simply, " I am the truth,the way and the life and NO ONE comes to the Father but by me." so your choice. it's called free will. He's waiting for you and loves you, enough to suffer,be tortured and die for your sins. but again it's really up to you. God loves you but won't force you to love and worship Him that is your free will choice to live forever with Him, or not. you decide. I've made my decision to live forever in God's kingdom, I can only pray that you'll join us there.[/QUOTE]
You will know them by their deeds:         Republicans use their money and votes to support leaders who've made the rich richer and are killing off the homeless and poor.    Republicans talk about family values at the same time they've destroyed countless families which broke up under financial stress, etc. caused by Republican greed. Republicans put Bush in power and kept liberals from impeaching him as he murdered over a hundred thousand men, women, and children in Iraq, leaving children without one or both parents in both countries.     Republicans were outraged when Obama wanted health care to save lives, not when their money was used for death and destruction. The god Republicans worship is the Almighty Dollar. There's more at Yes, we know you by your deeds.  203
Bill Maher can't come up with a joke good enough to save his arse on Judgment Day. Neither will all the religious fanatics who call themselves Protestants, following leaders whose motives are money and power, just like politicians.  They were told to spend their money to spread the gospel, not get rich - the opposite of Christianity.     The U.S. is suffering today, because they claimed this is God's country while doing evil, which gives God a black eye to unbelievers.  Warning:  It's going to get worse.  (next post)   236

[QUOTE who="Big Al"]<quoted text>So you're saying that Christians that don't call themselves Protestants don't follow leaders whose motives are money and power. Like those Christians that buddied up to the Roman Emperor Constantine. Or maybe the ones that sold indulgences to wealthy patrons that allowed them to get into heaven in spite of their sins. Or maybe you're referring to the Christians that say mass in the most expensive silk vestments on alters with golden candelabra and golden chalices while people all over the world go hungry.
And of course the guy that said "He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." was nuts. Only good things happen to good people and only bad things happen to bad people.[/QUOTE]
I'm saying that Christianity is a faith, while Protestantism has become big business.  The churches focus on wealth, being sanctimonious, and dressing up to impress other idiots, etc.  It's about churches taking money from people and using it to build monuments to their greed, and setting up countless organizations, etc.       There's a world full of people who have never seen a missionary, even though we were told to use our money to spread the Gospel.       Starting in 1980, I noticed that they were suddenly very political, telling people that they had to vote for Reagan, because God wanted them to.  I never heard of a single Protestant leader who publicly exposed how Godless that was, so they're still doing it.    It doesn't take much to realize that something's wrong, and that's one big reason so many people have left those churches rather than finance Godlessness.  330  and   331

No, doing evil, and telling people that God wanted you to do it, gives Him a black eye.  That drives people away from Christianity if they're ignorant and don't know when they're being deceived.      I can't think of much that's more spiritually dangerous than lying about God, for example using him for money and fame, which is what a lot of televangelists are clearly doing.  Some people see one bad televangelist and decide they want nothing to do with Christianity. I do believe in the Judgment Day, but that those who let Christ's death pay for their sins won't have anything to worry about.  It's about trust, faith.   332

[QUOTE who="RealSheryl"]<quoted text>Hi again Protester. I fully agree that a bad televangelist can drive people away from religion, and there are quite a few of them. I wonder how Oral Roberts and Pat Robertson (also Falwell) got any followers at all. The one I truly trust is Billy Graham.  Now, regarding Judgment Day, I find that extremely difficult to believe in, as wouldn't it have to affect the entire universe? Do you believe our one teensy planet would be judged and then possibly be annihilated and the rest of the cosmos would stay intact? Are we that arrogant as to believe that in this enormous galaxy, one of billions of others, we are unfathomably important as to be the only planet where life evolved? I do not believe we are the sole reason that everything else exists just because of us? So far, I guess the radio telescopes placed strategically all over earth have picked up nothing, but that doesn't mean they never will. Sorry this is so long - I've been up all night (it's just after 5:00 a.m. here) and I'm exhausted. I'm often up late due to pain from my PMR condition, but sometimes, like tonight, I just find life so fascinating that I don't want to waste it sleeping! However, I'm to the point right now I can hardly keep my eyes open. I enjoy your posts so much and they really get me thinking! See you tomorrow (God willing!).[/QUOTE]
Hello and thank you for the compliment. Well... about Billy Graham (next post) - I'm still investigating that video and am not ready to completely accept everything.   Remember when Oral Roberts said, basically, that God was holding him hostage and was going to kill him if people didn't pay a ransom?  I thought the entire Protestant world would turn against him, but instead, he got the money, and prospered, which helps prove my pro-Christian, but anti-Protestant views.  Also, since God didn't want the money given to Him, but to the hostage, made it look REALLY suspicious. I personally believe that, after Judgment, true Christians will be living on a cleaned up Earth, or maybe it will be their jobs to clean it up.  I don't believe this planet was created and not used and taken care of. As a child, I believed that there were other 'planet earths' out there, in different stages of development.  God wouldn't create only one earth, then do nothing forever. 
As far as Judgment Day, well, it wouldn't be paradise with people who don't care about others, and in fact, try to destroy other people in one way or another.   433

Force legislators to listen to you     NEWS   
Stop donating to them or their party and they'll listen fast. Start recall elections to threaten them. Make your demands clear. 
Force the media to publish your demands, to tell the stories about what insurance companies are doing to destroy people, etc.     There are many more ideas at insurance corruption. com on the Fight Back page.       In other words, you have to threaten them personally because most of them clearly don't care what the people want.  #1

'Go for it,' Obama tells GOP on health repeal
Obama may regret his arrogance on this.  Rep. Grayson's plan is gaining popularity.  It simply lets people buy into Medicare if they want to, eliminating the cause of our health care problems = insurance company thieves who paid our political leaders to write this plan which forces millions of us to reward their ongoing crimes, including murder. Here is Grayson's plan: (next post) 1221
and  and the interview with Bill Moyers  , in which liberal leaders support it.    The plan which goes farther, makes a profit, financially helps small businesses and the middle class, is affordable instead of welfare, and much more:  (next post)  1222
Since most people won't take the time to check out the Insurance Corruption site, here's the summary: "A very simple explanation of this plan:  It's like the American people go into business for themselves, setting up an insurance company independent of direct government intervention.  They could all afford the insurance because premiums are lower.  So, they wouldn't make the multi-billion dollar profits other insurance companies get, but they'd still make a profit, like any other insurance company, which would be used to help pay their biggest bill=the deficit.  See Middle Class benefits, below."  1231
And, since many people won't take the time to watch the interview, here are comments from National Organization For Women:   "The health care reform bill passed by Congress…fails in many important respects. After a full year of controversy and compromise, the result is a highly flawed, diminished piece of legislation that continues reliance on a failing, profit-driven private insurance system and rewards those who have been abusive of their customers. With more than 45,000 unnecessary deaths annually and hundreds of thousands of bankruptcies each year due to medical bills, this bill is only a timid first step toward meaningful reform.  Fact: The bill permits age-rating, the practice of imposing higher premiums on older people. This practice has a disproportionate impact on women, whose incomes and savings are lower due to a lifetime of systematic wage discrimination.
Fact: The bill also permits gender-rating, the practice of charging women higher premiums simply because they are women. Some are under the mistaken impression that gender-rating has been prohibited, but that is only true in the individual and small-group markets. Larger group plans (more than 100 employees) sold through the exchanges will be permitted to discriminate against women -- having an especially harmful impact in workplaces where women predominate. We know why those gender- and age-rating provisions are in the bill: because insurers insisted on them, as they will generate billions of dollars in profits for the companies. Such discriminatory rating must be completely eliminated. Fact: The bill covers only 32 million of the 47 million uninsured in this country, does not contain a meaningful public option and provides no pathway to a single payer system like Medicare for all. Democratic negotiators crumpled before powerful business interests and right-wing extremists, and until they get a spine there will be no true competition to help rein in costs.  We still have a lot of work to do before we can genuinely celebrate."  1236
I'm spending a huge amount of time trying to let people know they have choices, something the media has deliberately failed to do in 2009, but it‘s worth it if people use this information to attack corruption.  Their bias has denied all Americans the right to know, is forcing this bill down our throats, and has defrauded those who paid for their publications, watch their programs, etc. Let them know today that they've lost a customer/viewer because of it, and hopefully it won't happen again.  1237
[QUOTE who="Frank"]<quoted text>I will agree that much more needs to be done to reform the healthcare system and will acknowledge the Bills flaws that need to be fixed, however I am certain that this bill is much better than the nothing that the insurance companies and their paid representatives in Congress wanted. At least it’s a start. We as a people can continue to push for a Medicare buy in for all citizens, which is the obviously the best option. The current Bill may not be the whole loaf of bread but it’s at least a peanut butter sandwich which is a lot better than starving like the Republicans would have us do.[/QUOTE]
No, no, no, I disagree - think about this:  Right now people are all worked up, so it's the perfect time to inform them about their OTHER, and much better choices.   That's why Obama is telling people to wait a week, he knows people will cool down and eventually give up.  You're one proof - you're already 'settling' for what they've done. The fact is that this bill is not even good enough to compromise on.

[QUOTE who="TexasRanger"]Clearly, this was not some kind of innocent mistake. As the Washington Times pointed out, Ms. Langley was the head of the Lake County Republican Party. Someone in that position cannot help but know which Members of Congress represent her and her county. Since I do not represent Ms. Langley in Congress, any fundraising effort of hers directed against me that begins with the phrase "My Congressman" is fundamentally dishonest and fraudulent.  II. "Non-Connected Committee" Assertion
In the committee's Statement of Organization, Ms. Langley falsely claimed that the committee supports or opposes more than one candidate, and that it is not connected with any other organization (see Ex. 5). The website, however, clearly shows that the committee opposes only me. This also was true in the committee's news release, and Langley's statements in media coverage regarding the website. Moreover, in the Fox 35 interview, when the interviewer said "so your goal is to unseat him [meaning me]," Ms. Langley's response was "absolutely, that is our entire goal." Furthermore, since Ms. Langley is a former Republican Party official, it strains credulity for her to assert that her committee is not connected with any other organization. Indeed, the avowed purpose of the committee is to raise money for the Republican nominee in next year's FL-8 election. Thus the committee is simply a device to skirt around contribution limits.  In short, the activities of Ms. Langley and the committee are awash with FECA violations. Every dollar that the committee has raised has been raised in violation of law. Indeed, among other things, Ms. Langley is personally guilty of the type of fraudulent misrepresentation specifically prohibited by 2 U.S.C. 441h.  For the reasons stated above, I respectfully request that the FEC assess all applicable administrative and civil penalties, under 11 C.F.R. 111 and otherwise. This includes, but is not limited to, the assessment against Ms. Langley and the committee of a civil penalty equal to 1000 percent of the amount that the committee has raised or will raise. (In other words, I request that Ms. Langley be fined an amount equal to ten times what the committee raises.) Because Ms. Langley's violations are knowing and willful, I also ask that the FEC refer this violation to the Attorney General, for his consideration of all penalties, including but not limited to "imprison[ment] for not more than 5 years." 2 U.S.C. 437g(d).  Thank you for your attention to this matter.  Sincerely, [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who="JackMcIntosh"]<quoted text>I wasn't trying to have a reasonable conversation. I was trying to make a point.
You said Grayson was a victim of crime and applauded his "courage" for standing up to it. I found that to be offensive. If campaign laws were broken, fine, the authorities will deal with that, but let me make one thing clear...  I have worked with people out here in the real world who have been the victims of violent crime. Real, life altering, horrific crimes Frank. I have seen the courage it takes for a woman to stand up to her attacker. I have seen the strength of character and the dedication it takes for a family to stand up and defend their children once they have fallen prey to the most vile individuals our society can produce.  I have marveled at their courage and I have stood with them as they struggled with a legal system that doesn't give a damn and to hear you compare some sniveling politician to the victims of true crime is simply outrageous and unworthy of respect. Maybe some day you'll know what it feels like to stand between a serial child rapist and his victim simply because he came from a prominent family and was given the lightest sentence possible.
Maybe you will know the rage I felt, an entire community felt, when this monster came seeking revenge against the people he had already so gravely abused and fate places you in the breech. Maybe you will know what it feels like to find yourself starring down the barrell of a gun when he hires a drug addicted thug to convince you that if you testify in the new trial "you will pay with your life". I know Frank.
I know and I can tell you this, it wasn't my courage that kept me going, I was afraid. It was the faith of a child, Frank, it was an innocent who had been so badly mistreated, first by her attacker and then by a legal system that had convicted him and sent him home in the same day.

You talked about the criminal system, which is as good or bad as the people let it become.  Crime will flourish where people don't stand up to it, and those who do are indeed brave. The civil system is probably more corrupted, and again the people are to blame.  If they went to sites like 'legal parasites. com' and fought back, this country wouldn't nearly so corrupt or violent.  It also has to do with the health care law because the corrupt ties between the insurance industry-legislators-corrupt legal system is killing us.  The number of felonies they get away with would probably shock us all. So, if this reform bill isn't stopped, it will mean the criminals got away with it again because the people failed to stand against it when it counted.   1382
[QUOTE who="PlacitasRoy"]<quoted text> Still spewing the debunked IRS fear mongering carp? LIEs! Are you that ignorant or are you just intentionally and maliciously LYING? From "This wildly inaccurate claim started as an inflated, partisan assertion that 16,500 new IRS employees might be required to administer the new law. That devolved quickly into a claim, made by some Republican lawmakers, that 16,500 IRS "agents" would be required. Republican Rep. Ron Paul of Texas even claimed in a televised interview that all 16,500 would be carrying guns. None of those claims is true.  The IRS’ main job under the new law isn’t to enforce penalties. Its first task is to inform many small-business owners of a new tax credit that the new law grants them — starting this year — which will pay up to 35 percent of the employer’s contribution toward their workers’ health insurance. And in 2014 the IRS will also be administering additional subsidies — in the form of refundable tax credits — to help millions of low- and middle-income individuals buy health insurance. The law does make individuals subject to a tax, starting in 2014, if they fail to obtain health insurance coverage. But IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified before a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee March 25 that the IRS won’t be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. He said insurance companies will issue forms certifying that individuals have coverage that meets the federal mandate, similar to a form that lenders use to verify the amount of interest someone has paid on their home mortgage. "We expect to get a simple form, that we won’t look behind, that says this person has acceptable health coverage," Shulman said. "So there’s not going to be any discussions about health coverage with an IRS employee." In any case, the bill signed into law (on page 131) specifically prohibits the IRS from using the liens and levies commonly used to collect money owed by delinquent taxpayers, and rules out any criminal penalties for individuals who refuse to pay the tax or those who don’t obtain coverage. That doesn’t leave a lot for IRS enforcers to do...." there's a lot more:[/QUOTE]
Well, without investigating thoroughly, I would guess that the truth is somewhere in the middle, but I know one thing for a fact -- that IRS involvement is ominous.  The IRS is our version of the Gestapo, and so I would bet that the stories of them as a bunch of nice guys who just want to help us is the biggest load of cra, uh, fairy tales, that I've heard yet.  It's called propaganda, and it works pretty well on the idiot masses who fear they're being lied to, but are afraid to face reality.  Plus, most Americans want a good healthcare plan and are against Obama's bill, so it would take a lot of agents to force them to buy insurance that won't be affordable, violates their rights, etc.

Never underestimate the power of the people - why do you think there have been so many changes to the even more abusive plan they had last year?  Public outrage.  There are more of us than there are of them, and our sons are in the military, so if people raised them right, they won't shoot us.  What else does Congress do besides pass laws and change laws?  They'll do it NOW because we demand it.   People will be truly pathetic losers if they're told that's all they can be often enough. Well, there are lots of us who tell them they have more than hope, they have power, but if they're waiting for daddy-mommy to come along and lead them, then get shot, and the movement falls apart - NO!  That scenario has been played out too often, we're bored with it.  Now, since the people and their pathetic weaknesses and stupidity are at fault, THEY have to make it happen, either individually or in groups, or by joining other groups.   The main enemies here are traitors to everything this country stands for, and time.  If enough time goes by, the movement will just die.  Check out 'Those opposed to Obama's bill:' on this forum.   1413
Just Info wrote: This whole debacle of an administration is just again showing how completely inane they are.  The fact that the IRS is being used in any part of this health care BS is a misuse of the agency. They will have to put on more agents to handle the increase in paperwork as a minimum. Then they will have to assess the increased taxes on those that don't get an approved health insurance policy. Now they say that even though they can assess an additional tax to anyone not getting an approved insurance they can not enforce it. According to the way this law is written the additional tax is not subject to the same laws as other federal taxes. So if we are to believe them, they can not force you to pay it in any way. They can not charge you for tax evasion in a federal court, they can not attach your earnings, wages, or property or force collection in any other way.  Now I ask anyone with half a brain out there. What kind of idiots make a law that can not be enforced?  I submit that regardless of what is currently in this law by the time the mandatory insurance goes into effect the IRS will have the power to enforce it. To think otherwise is either being foolish or just plain stupid.

If we were going through legitimate hard times, it would be different, but these hard times were created by corrupt men conspiring to destroy our nation’s economy and  many people for pure greed.  So, to have an  attitude that people are expendable for the glorification of the Almighty Dollar is twisted, and clearly it's not YOU who's losing a home, etc. It's the attitude of a loser who has allowed tremendous corruption by not fighting back, and even now as people suffer all around, homeless and hungry, you're talking about giving up Disneyland.  Yeah, you're really suffering. You're the one who needed to learn, during good times, to fight to prevent these bad times.  Much of it was caused by leaders like Reagan who destroyed the safeguards that Democrats had put there to protect the American people from such lunacy.    Liberals have been warning about the dangers of Republicans making the rich richer for THREE DECADES, but brain-dead Republican voters were too busy celebrating their self-made 'superiority'. Finally, the liberals have been proven right, and when things couldn't get much worse, the masses voted for a Democrat because they were scared.  It took Republicans about 30 years to bring us to this, and Republicans have been complaining for over a year that it wasn't fixed immediately.  The lesson to learn from all this is not to be gutless and blame the victims.  It's to learn that if you vote to let criminals run your government, and refuse to let Democrats impeach them to save the country, then you also are a traitor. If the American people don't come together to defeat Obama's healthcare bill, and at the same time strike a serious blow to legislative/insurance company corruption, they probably won't be able to come together again, not without violence. Information such as other healthcare choices, critics of Obama's bill, and ways to make sure deaf legislators and the biased media never betray us again is at: (next post)   1584

This comes only a year after a 27% drop (in the 2008), which followed a record high of 9.2 million households in 2007.  Additionally, there was an increase of 17% in families worth at least $5 million and a 12% increase in households worth $500,000 or more." Consumerist

[QUOTE who="JackMcIntosh"]I've been wondering...     Obama made this comment "Go for it" when the "progressives" were convinced that passing this insurance reform would give them a boost in the polls. The bump became a dip and opposition to the reform package actually increased and has solidified at well over 50%. At the same time support for the bill has plummeted, even among liberals such as myself, and the democratic party has dropped in favorability to the dismal levels of the GOP. Do you think Obama would make the same cocky challenge today? I know the common defense among the faithful is that eventually the people will realize the "positive" aspects of this effort and change their minds, but it looks like they are wrong about that one too. Oh, and where the hell is Nancy Pelosi. For a few days after the bill passed she went on some sort of derranged victory tour, doing interviews, mugging for the cameras, proclaiming her historic achievement (even though it wasn't her version of reform that was Reids). All of the sudden she is out of sight. Could it have something to do with the fact that she so totally misread the publics reaction to the bill and that she is now (according to all the polls) one of the most despised figures in American politics? I know she spent the entire democratic primary of '08 telling the public "the popular vote doesn't matter" to justify installing Obama as the nominee, but by now even she has to realize that at some point, when the people are so overwhelmingly against you the popular vote will overtake the ability of the elitist class to manipulate the outcome.

That's pathetic!  So many good people are trying to make the U.S. a country to be proud of again, but they’re constantly being dragged back down by Republican parasites who cheered their Bush as he murdered and plundered through eight years of treason.  That’s as bad as going after a liberal president over an alleged sex act, but cheering as Reagan destroyed the safeguards that would have prevented this recession and all the human tragedy that has resulted from it.  Republicans are the lowest form of life and are so brain-dead that they’ll never change.  2742

You’re right, the government is the culprit, but, as we all know now, that was Reagan’s fault, and Republican voters.   Liberals warned about what Reagan was doing, but Republican voters thought he was a god.  Liberals warned not to elect him in the first place, but Republicans only want their party, and don’t care about what’s best for the country.  2757

Response Part1    Blaming the collapse on Fannie and Freddie is a "REPUBLICAN Political STRATEGY." It has no basis in truth, and it was what they GOP came up with to defend themselves for what they did.       But it makes no sense. Fannie and Freddie were but a fraction of the subprime market, and Fannie and Freddie had nothing to do with the VAST MAJORITY of Subprimes because the VAST MAJORITY were 100% Private loans, nothing to do with Fannie or Freddie... let me repeat, they were PRIVATE and that was the VAST MAJORITY of the Market. It was specifically the 1999 Gramm Leach deregulation bill that led to those subprimes being created by investment houses, securitized into AAA rated products that were sold off to investors, and the PRIVATE originators of those Subprime loans had no risk. They sold them and made their PROFIT immediately. No risk. Get it?  And the people that bought those securities took out Default Swaps... insurance on their investments. AIG insured them... even though they didn't have the resources to back them.      Purchasers of securities - No risk. Get it? How was it this was allowed to happen... anyone giving away loans and selling them so they had no risk? GRAMM LEACH
      Republicans threatened to shut down the Federal Government of the US if Clinton did not sign their bill. Clinton was against it and signed it as a compromise to the GOP to get his budget funded that year.  ****      the environment was not created by Frank or Fannie or Freddie.
    Republicans did this. In fact, all I heard from every self admitted Republican in 2004 was that proof of a good economy was how GW BUSH put so many minorities into HOMES!!! Home Ownership they told me. Just look you Liberal scum... Bush has put minorities into homes at RECORD RATES! The environment was not created by Frank or Fannie or Freddie. Republicans did this. What about any of these links do you not understand?:  In 1999 when the Republicans were pushing with all their might to get the 1999 Gramm Leach bill passed, Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan went to the Senate Floor to predict that if that bill passed and effectively repealed the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, within 10-years the risks that "free-market" principles would allow Wall Street to take would lead to economic collapse. He was deadly accurate.          So were a busload of Democratic Congressman, Economists, and some Nobel Prize Winning Economists. They said there had to be limits and regulation. Find me a Republican that predicted it. You won’t.    The Democrats didn't do this. Republicans and their "Free Market without regulations is GOD" principles did.
  There is absolutely nothing that a Democrat in America, the House, or Senate could have done in 2007 to stop the 2007 collapse... regardless of Right Wing claims of "oversight" because GOP claims hold no water.     You are repeating what Limbaugh and Hannity keep repeating... but there is no truth to it.     All Nobel Prize winning economists point fingers and the Gramm Leach deregulation bill... and Republicans blame the closest Democratic institution that they can find... why? Because it’s what Republicans do.     Blame monkeys all.[/QUOTE]
Good post. I also believe that Bush could have stopped it with an executive order, preventing any foreclosures, at least until it went through the courts.  I think he deliberately let it happen because he had buddies who were part of the group that bet on the failure, and made a fortune off that.   3694

[QUOTE who="Porkulus"]Price: Obamacare Means 159 New Gov't Agencies  The new government agencies that will be created as the result of Obamacare will worsen the quality of American medical care by restricting physicians and hospitals to use their best judgment, according to Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., a physician and chairman of the Republican Study Committee. In fact, he says, the bill would create 159 new governemnt agencies to regulate insurance and medical care for Americans. Writing for AOL News, Price says in an op-ed that the healthcare overhaul being contemplated by House Democrats will sacrifice “the quality of health care that has made this nation's practice of medicine the envy of the world.”  “Quality remains one of the six principles of patient-centered health care that Republicans have advocated,” Price writes. “Yet, all Americans find in the Democrats' government-centered vision are various boards of bureaucrats -- not practicing physicians -- determining what is considered quality care.”  The plan will take away the right of individuals to make the best decisions about their healthcare in consultation with their physician. “An individual patient is far better served when health care decisions are informed by the advice of their doctor, not the dictates of Washington,” Price writes. “So when one reads the details of the legislation pending before Congress and finds the creation of 159 new government offices and programs, there is little else to feel but fear and concern for what will happen to the level of quality care in this country.”  The GOP has pushed a series of common-sense measures, Price says, that include tort reform and efforts to reduce waste and mismanagement in government programs like Medicare.

Obama's bill is very bad, but Republicans had nothing, and now they use 'tort reform' as a solution.   That's typically Republican because it 1.  has nothing to do with better health care, or even better insurance coverage.  2.  in fact, it makes it worse for victims by limiting the amount of award they can receive. So, both Republicans and Democrats are owned by the horribly corrupt insurance industry, and we're the losers. Again, THAT's why the Insurance Corruption plan is absolutely necessary.

Right.  That continues to happen because congress, prosecuters, and the American people have made it clear that they are ok with these kinds of murder. So, it's insane to let insurance companies have anything to do with the new health care bill, and proves how corrupted Congress and the White House are.  The plan at (since the summer of 2009) has cut all insurance company involvement.  It's voluntary, makes a profit, and so much more, but it has faces serious problems:  insurance industry corruption, Congressional corruption, the media which is biased for either Democrats or Republicans, and the stupidity of the masses who are too lazy to study the site and educate themselves.   The problem is that the rest of us will also suffer if this bill goes forward.  On the 'fight back' page there are ways to make it happen.  Here's a sample: - legislators.  Stop all contributions to their and their party and let them know why, and that it will continue, and will include your votes, until they give you the plan you want.  Also, demand that they lose all retirement and other benefits, etc. - media.  Let them know they've lost you as a customer or viewer because they deliberately defrauded you by keeping important information from you. There's also a new idea - just let people buy into Medicare if they want to, near the end of the interview:  This plan will save taxpayers a fortune, and the Insurance Corruption Plan makes a profit, and helps financially save the Middle Class. Both cut out insurance companies, keeping the profits within the government. Get tough with Congress - they're ignoring us all.  989

Dad had alzheimers and stopped communicating completely. He never said a word in his last 3 yrs of life. If he was not happy he would lung out as his way of communicating. There were many other issues beside that. But she did see him everyday at the nursing home and all the nurses were very kind. Never did we see any neglect or abuse. We were with him when he died. He was never alone alone but except for being alone in his inner self which there was nothing we or the doctors could do about that. My mom also waited hand and foot for my dad. he never wanted for anything and was catered to 24/7. Everyday for 3 months all of us were at the hospital to visit him, many times someone staying the night. All of us including grandchildren were there when he passed. Hospice is a great organization and everyone there was kind, gentle, informative about what my dad was going through, but most of all they were extremely compassionate. I thank them all for being there and helping not just dad through this difficult time but to the rest of the family as well. All in all when family and friends stick together and help when someone is ill then no one has to carry the whole burden on their back. When I say burden please don't take it the wrong way. Some burdens are worth carrying but can be difficult none the less.

Did you know that insurance companies are so hated that they paid our legislators to write a law preventing any jury from knowing if an insurance company is involved in a lawsuit?  That gives their lawyers the opportunity to deliberately lie to the jury and claim that their clients are poor and victimized, while the reality is that they’re working for multi-billion dollar insurance companies - and there’s nothing the other attorney can say or do about it.  The only way to attack such entrenched corruption is to hit them both at once with the Insurance Corruption plan, which makes a PROFIT, etc.  Unfortunately, the biased media has refused to inform the American people that they have ANY other choices, including one proposed by a congressman.  Why?  Because Obama‘s plan is so bad compared to the other choices.  He even went back on his word to allow someone to speak for the single payer idea during his open discussions in early 2009 (Democracy NOW).  Corrupt legislators and insurance companies are counting on the American people to be so weak and pathetic that they won’t fight back.  You may not agree with the Tea Party movement, but at least they’re standing up for what they believe. But, where are the Democrats who are being betrayed by the politicians they elected?  They’re being stupid.  They were pathetically weak when Bush was killing people in Iraq and they should have been outraged.  Very few of us tried to get him impeached. So, now there’s work to do, and if you care about this country at all, you will read about your other choices, and what you can do to penalize your deaf legislators and biased media for betraying your trust.  Go to:  (next post)  1130

That is socialism and socialism doesn't work.

What??? So basically, we're just shifting the profits from businesses to the government??? Do I have that right? So how is this going to save anybody money? Instead of profits going to competing business it will be going to a goverment monopoly that has no competition to worry about and therefore no reason to operate effectively. Lastly, what makes you believe the government can run an "insurance plan" at a profit???

My god, you're dumb.  Yes the government is supposed to be in the business of health care, and has been, and will continue to be forced to serve the needs of the people.  Republican parasites love their money so much more than humanity, and yet advertise how goody-goody they are, but it's all a pretense for shallow minds.  Idiots keep saying that socialism doesn't 'work', meaning "it's all about me-me-me".  By keeping people alive, it does work.  We're shifting profits from sleazy criminals in the insurance industry to OUR government, to pay OUR deficit, which you supported by not helping to prevent it because you are clueless about how to do that. The governmental contracted-out entity would operate more effectively than the scum in the insuance industry who deliberately deny coverage and destroy lives.
Government is the problem to the degree that fools like you are too gutless to make your leaders answer to you.  You don't even try, have no intelligent solutions, and try to destroy good ideas because you're too dumb to comprehend anything better, like insurance corruption. com.
[QUOTE who="YouHelpFixIt"]<quoted text>Who says it’s free? That would be you, in post 3373. Did you notice how I put your exact words in quotes?  So in your plan the government insurance is free of corruption because is run by nice people just like the government is now. There is no need for competition to keep the prices down because government agencies are known for their efficiency and constant improvement. And best of all we won't don't worry if they make mistakes or wind up being just as incompetent as history has showed us that government is, they will be backed by the US taxpayer instead of just failing and going out of business. What could possibly go wrong?  PS. Paying for this plan would not be voluntary, if it was it would not be funded.[/QUOTE]
I don't expect you to comprehend this, but for those who might think you know what you're talking about:  
1. There's always a need for competition, and the insurance corruption. com plan competes against insurance companies instead of subsidizing them.  2. The amount of corruption and incompetence in government is a direct result of your laziness and stupidity, because you expect life to be a free ride and have refused to get off your lazy rear and make those in government accountable. 3. Yes, people will buy insurance if they can afford it, if they don't have to pay insurance company scum multi-billion dollar bonuses, which you evidently like.
People:  As long as you're alive, you have the ability to demand a good health care plan, one that eliminates all insurance company involvment.  That's the only way to cripple that particular corruption.  Idiots will continue to criticize it because they love greed, are too dumb to think outside the box, etc.  Take the time to learn or pay a terrible price.   3608
[QUOTE who="no_more_illegals"]<quoted text>You are one total dumbass. Since when is taking money from people who produce and support themselves and give it to lazy, pathetic losers who suck off taxpayers a good thing? And think about this, most of the problems with the healthcare we have now were caused by the retards in the gov't.[/QUOTE]
Wrong again.  Most of the problems we have now were caused by parasites in the corrupt insurance industry - that's common knowledge.
Many of those 'pathetic losers' were Republicans until their Bush hero cost them everything, now they're first in line for every welfare dollar they can get.   3612
[QUOTE who="YouHelpFixIt"]<quoted text>So you call it free, but you admit is not free and you also advocate a plan to eliminate corporate corruption by replacing it with a plan that you admit will be full of government corruption. The way to reduce corruption is to expose it and to increase competition, not centralize and legalize it. Your ideas are ridiculously shortsighted.[/QUOTE]
Corporate corruption is so extremely worse than government incompetence that there's no comparison. You failed to get one of the most important points, that the profits go back to the people, paying down the deficit, unless your plan is to just dump that problem on everybody else. Any intelligent plan will surely fail because it won't be backed by the idiot masses who can't comprehend it, and the corruption that wants to destroy them.   3613
[QUOTE who="Skizazz"]How can you make such a absurd statement? There are signs of goverment incompetence everywhere you look. Corporate corruption pales in comparison.[/QUOTE]
Both government incompetence and corporate corruption are an accurate gauge of the laziness of the American people.  Those problems only exist because people would rather accuse all welfare recipients of being lazy instead of getting off their own dead rears and holding the criminals accountable. That's why we can't have any healthcare plan that includes insurance companies, because their crimes against victims will only get worse due to the fact that Americans and legislators have proven they want to let them operate above the law.  That's why we have to demand a plan like the one at insurance corruption. com which solves the problem by totally eliminating all insurance companies and keeping the profits for ourselves.  3639
The biggest problem facing America is stupidity. The idiot masses can only see two health care choices, while the minority of intelligent people have open minds and can see at least two more choices:  Rep. Grayson's and Insurance Corruption's, and they are demanding one of those.  3641
And     3642
In this Bill Moyers interview, two respected people are recommending another health care choice.  The most important part is near the end:   I think the plan at  is better is because it offers much more, but intelligent people need to decide for themselves and demand one of them NOW, and never stop.  3645

You made good points then sabotaged your message with that same old tired 'socialist' accusation.  The rest of the educated world has health care, trouble is that when we finally get it, it has to be a giant fraud. It's corrupt insurance industry money that's behind this plan.  Just think, people, THEY are the cause of all our health care problems, so why in God's name would you want them included in this bill?  Their crimes will continue because the American people have made it clear that they're not going to FORCE the government to prosecute those criminals.   Why would you want all the profits, from millions of people who are going to now be forced to subsidize insurance industry corruption, to go to the evil insurance companies?  The plan at has advocated since the summer of 2009 that those profits need to stay with OUR government, used to pay toward OUR deficit, which Congress forced on us.  They forced us to go into debt, and now force us to subsidize corruption instead of that debt. At that site, on the 'fight back' page, there are ways to bring congress under control, but you can NOT expect others to carry your weight - you have to work for this too.  Also, where is the media in all of this?  Why have they defrauded you by not telling you about other choices?  Tell them they've lost you as a customer for keeping that information from you. There's also a plan which lets people buy into Medicare if they want, at  Pick one of these, DEMAND it of your legislator, and keep demanding no matter how long it takes.  3675

For your information, Republican legislators also ignored other health care choices too, like 'insurance corruption. com' which isn't free, or a wasteful bureaucracy, is voluntary, etc. It solves the basic reasons why Americans hate the government's plan. Republican and Democratic legislators have put insurance company profits over the needs of Americans. They are willing to sabotage life-saving health care for their own profit. That's why Insurance Corruption also gives ways of bringing legislators back under the control of the voters. But, guess what? The masses are too lazy and too stupid to get it or do anything but bi!ch about it. (37 min ago | post #1317)
[QUOTE who="Patriot AKA Bozo"]<quoted text>I am not crazy about how the plan has been decimated by the unfortunate politicized propaganda of the opposition. By their scare tactics and hate slogans, they have made any rational discussions impossible. We need to study how other industrialized countries are able to nearly halve our costs. Until we do that, we have lost a competitive edge due to the price that our companies must pay for health care. Instead, we have come to the point of giving the existing insurance corporations, who are largely responsible for our dilemma, a bonanza in the name of "free" enterprise. If we do not fix the health care industry, the blame must surely rest on those who have put a wrench in the gears of progress. [/QUOTE]
The problem is, who is 'we'? The MASSES aren't going to do anything, the DEMOCRATS couldn't have done a worse job of sabotaging it by coming up with a disaster instead of a simple plan like insurance corruption. com, and the MEDIA is biased either in favor of Republicans who wanted no health care, or Obama no matter what he does wrong. Then there are the insurance companies, the demons in all of this, handing out money in one form or another, to force us all to increase their profits.

Not hardly. I worked in a job that dealt with the people I am talking about.

One had a boyfriend living with her secretly who earned $15.00 an hour while being the father of her children while she collected full benefits for those same children and lived on section 8 and food stamps. Another was angry that the laws were changed and she just might have to actually work. Another was selling drugs out of her section 8 housing and God only knows how much she took in while sucking up welfare and food stamps. Many sold their food stamps to earn more money then came to us for food. We paid over and over for rents when the people received more than enough yet bought TVs and other crap and had cell phones but couldn't make that $125.00 rent. This is just some of what I saw and learned about healthy welfare lifers. Not to mention that the ones who lived off welfare some how could not manage to watch their children while they sat at home. Welfare has been a big drain with fraud running wild in it for more years than I know about. It is not a fantasy but fact. It is in need of dire reform and has been for years. [/QUOTE]

Since we already must cover the uninsured in the IR, that just makes sense.  7. Starting in 2014 (when you will be required by law to have health insurance), states will operate new insurance marketplaces - called "exchanges" - that will provide you with more options for buying an individual policy if you can't get, or afford, insurance from your workplace and you earn too much income to qualify for Medicaid.  8. Three years from now, flexible spending accounts (FSAs) will have lower contribution limits - meaning you won't be able to have as much money deducted from your paycheck pre-tax and deposited into an FSA for medical expenses as is currently allowed.  9. If you earn more than $250,000 you will be taxed more for Medicare.  10. Starting this year, if Medicare is your primary form of health insurance you will no longer have to pay for preventive care such as an annual physical, screenings for treatable conditions or routine laboratory work. In addition, you will get a $250 check from the federal government to help pay for prescription drugs currently not covered as a result of the Medicare Part D "doughnut hole".[/QUOTE]

Other suggestions on that site are to let them know they're not getting any more of your money, form groups to demand that they implement reforms that will actually punish them for doing what insurance companies want in spite of our protests, and making sure the media knows that they have lost customers because they've kept the information about other choices from us deliberately.  Hundreds and hundreds of media sources were told about the one at insurance corruption. com and the Bill Moyer info was on national television, but the media let it die there, so WE have to keep spreading the word.  1906

So many Americans are against this plan, while Grayson's is gaining in popularity. So, evidently he wasn't bought off by sleazy insurance companies. Hopefully, if enough of us demand one of the plans that excludes insurance companies, it will not only give us good health care, it will also send a message to our corrupted leaders that we're taking control again. That can only happen if insurance companies aren't able to wave their money around.  Insurance companies will corrupt any plan - they've always gotten away with it, and they know they will in the future. Here are the only 2 plans I know of that exclude them, including the Bill Moyers interview:(next post):  2013

This person is a good example of how a Republican parasite avoids logic and reality.  Republicans aren't able to think things through, so they vote the party, letting others do that for them.   They criticize people like Grayson, who is helping to save this country financially, because they liked it better when Repubican Bush was destroying it.  They constantly !itch when legislators don't fight corruption, then criticize those who do because they're not Republican. The most dangerous threat to our country is stupidity.  We can't turn against those who are trying to throw us life rafts and expect to survive.   Republicans are morons - if they had a brain among them, they would've let Democrats impeach Bush, hoping to win in the next election.  But they didn't - they chose to help him commit treason rather than think of what Bush was doing to them and their families.  They're idiots! Democrats, on the other hand, are more intelligent because they know that if they country as a whole doesn't do well, neither will the citizens.  So, they've been leaving the Democratic Party, choosing to be loyal to the country instead of the party.    Now, thanks to Grayson, they can come together and demand something better.  Here's a good place to start: (next post)   2039

I am not for ObamaCare and want it repealed. Nothing in the bill represents cost cutting, Tort reform, lower premiums and drug costs, ability to purchase health insurance any where in the USA for a better deal. All this bill does is provide health care for indegent people at everyone else's expense. Obama doesn't give a rats ass for Seniors, he has made that quite clear in denying their cost of living increases for two years, and gutting 500 billion from Medicare. I guess it is some kind of sick revenge because many of the older folks did not vote for him. Sorry, Grayson the congressman from Florida is a piece of shit, his grand-stand sign in Congress that the Republicans want death panels to kill grannie was pure far left BS. And I am not changing my mind on it. Repeal the HealthCare bill, and while you are at it repeal Obama. He's not worth a shit either.

....Overall, the winner in this year's contest was the Netherlands. Interestingly, perhaps, it's a nation that doesn't have a government-run system, but instead achieves universal coverage with an individual insurance mandate, much like the one recently passed by the U.S. Congress. The Dutch were first in access, first in equity, and second in quality of care.
The U.S., by contrast, was last in every category except quality, where it was second to last, squeaking in ahead of Canada. At $7,290 in annual spending per person in 2007, the U.S. also dwarfed second-place Canada at $3,895 and third-place Netherlands at $3,837....[/QUOTE]
Is their insurance industry as corrupt as ours?  Probably not, because they hold government and politicians accountable. Does theirs have to use the IRS Gestapo to enforce anything that most of the people are against? There are too many unanswered questions.
One fact is indisputable:  The U.S. is criminal in its health care, and Republicans never said a word about the death and destruction they caused with their votes, but were outraged because we were attempting to provide health care.   Plus, the fact is that most Americans are financially unable to afford health insurance because of the Republican-caused recession, and jobs given to citizens of other countries, especially China and Mexico.   2066

Holy Crimes of the Week               Christian
One of the worst crimes against Christianity committed in some Protestant churches, is the teaching by ministers that God has told them that they are to vote Republican. They get away with it by using issues like family values, abortion, etc. but the fact remains that there is no greater sin, and no greater sign that those ministers are speaking for satan, than to lie about what God says.  People need to get out of those churches and start their own small groups for worship, prayer, Bible study, etc. if there are no legitimate Christian churches around.

Add this crime:    Guide one ins. co. vigorously has vigorously defended child abusers with hundreds of felonies, including the destruction of evidence.  Otherwise they clearly would have lost the case. Their crimes nearly killed one person, and the child suffered permanent damage, but nobody was ever prosecuted for anything.  That's how much power they have. Their crimes have been committed by people in four different areas, but not one district attorney would prosecute any of them.  Protect yourself from this danger - find out who insures your religious organizations, summer camps, senior residences, etc.  138

Homelessness is a silent epidemic
[QUOTE who="Felipe"]For too many, homelessness is a choice.

The criminally punitive confiscatory and redistributionist tax code and social safety hammock deprive good folk of the disposable funds that might go to spending on faith-based and other programs that give temporary help to those in need or help them/us to take in to our homes family/friends who are in need, and the existence of the government social safety hammock sends the message that I need not help my brother or neighbor because the government will.       Abolish welfare in all its nefarious forms, drastically lower tax rates, and support God-based values/moraltiy, and the result will be greater care for the truly needy without government interference, on a voluntary basis that edifies us as a people/culture.       "The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen."

How to make legislators listen to the people:    POLITICS
They only understand two things: votes and money. They already have your votes, so STOP DONATING to them or their party.
Then start recall elections.  Even if they don't happen, the fact that people are attempting to fire them should wake them up.
There are many more ideas at insurance corruption. com - on the Fight Back page.  There are also ideas intended to force the media to start giving us the information we need, to tell the stories of what insurance companies are doing to their victims, to be present in court, etc.  The news needs to include the facts about corruption which hits everybody.  If we don't demand this, we will continue to have some of the most ignorant people on the face of the earth. #1

All you had to do was look at the next post, 404 - it's not rocket science.  I did that for a reason.  You wrote, "health care which will put insurance companies out of business" - you know, if you're that ignorant, it's better not to talk. Insurance companies are horribly corrupt, have been meeting with our great leaders to get the plan that forces millions of people to pay them so they can support their corruption, etc.  They will make out like the thieves they are on this legislation.  People:  By supporting one of the other plans, we do several things at once.    We compete against the insurance companies, so people aren't forced to finance the corruption.  Then insurance companies won't be able to buy our legislators who pass laws which violate our legal rights.  For example, it's the law that jurors can't know if an insurance company is involved in a lawsuit, to protect the guilty.  (See the example on the insurance corruption site.)
It helps stop the human tragedy resulting from insurance company fraud.  Millions of people wouldn't have demanded government intervention if it wasn't a fact of life.   It eliminates the need to spend a fortune prosecuting all the felonies committed by insurance companies, as if the American people are ever going to develop enough backbone to do that. It tells our legislators that we won't take any more of their corruption either, so in the future, maybe they will listen to us.      It tells the media they have lost customers because they chose to be biased in one direction or the other, and refused to tell them that they had other choices. READ about these choices and make an intelligent decision.  If you don't exercise your right to have a voice in government, you will lose it, even more than you already have.   433

Anger in America isn't new. It's been around since before Obama came on the scene. But what's changed is the course the anger is taking.

We will choose sides and come to blows with one another. There will be much communal strife like that seen in Ireland during its religious conflicts. Most of our separation will be due to social class because as the middle class in America continues to shrink there will grow a wider and wider gap between the economic groups in our country. As racial issues continue to pour fuel on this fire, we can only expect things to get worse. So, ponder that today. Picture what lies ahead for us. And we're creating it right now, today, because like a bunch of spoiled brats each and every one of us wants our way. That can't happen in a civilized society. Like in a marriage there must be give and take for the union to be successful. There is no longer give and take. That's been gone for a very long time. We are now so individualized that we no matter what goes on we ask "what's in it for me?" The America that our Founding Fathers created is gone - not because the Constitution wasn't adhered to -  but because we have grown selfish and self-centered and put our want and greed ahead of our nation"        I disagree completely.  If you're even a little aware of the amount of abuse and corruption coming from Washington, then the last thing this country needs is for the American people to become more like sheep, pathetic critters who are controlled by masters, and victimized by predators. I'm so relieved to see that people from all ideologies are speaking out and demanding reform.  That's what will save this country from the evil that results from too much wealth and power with almost no accountability. If not, it won't take that long for the country to unravel, as our leaders are trying to drown us in debt and lawlessness. Whether people are religious or not, we are expected to fight the good fight, and save the goody-goody attitude for the less fortunate, not the Godless parasites who have no conscience. If you care about your country, and the survival of its people, read about your choices and what you can do at (next post)  489

Indonesian students protest Barack Obama's visit
Obama is rejected by Muslims, but Republican simpletons constantly accuse him of being Muslim.  They're not smart enough to criticize him for choosing insurance company profits instead of a good health care plan, like the insurance corruption. com plan which solves the problems Americans hate most.  If it's going to be accepted, the American people are going to have to wake up and push it because the sleazy insurance companies, biased media, and corrupt politicians are all against it.  Also, on 'fight back' section - how to control congress.   5

"The five largest U.S. health insurance companies sailed through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression to set new industry profit records in 2009, a feat accomplished by leaving behind 2.7 million americans who had been inprivate health plans.

Executives and shareholders of the five biggest for-profit health insurers, UnitedHealthGroup inc., WellPoint inc., Aetna Inc., Humana Inc., and Cigna Corp., enjoyed combined profit of $12.2 billion in 2009, up 56 percent from the previous year.

Is there a middle on abortion?
Yes, there absolutely is a middle on abortion, and it will be given to the American people, if the health care plan at  becomes law. This legislation is so extremely important that people must have it before they can even begin to make a decision about this bill. The other choices are far superior to the bill that was passed, but the media is sabotaging your right to know by refusing to publish them.  The US Politics forum suppressed more information this morning, for no reason, which is scary and makes me wonder what's going on here?  I hope you'll also go to 'feedback' (below) and 'comments' and demand that the person responsible be fired - the information is THAT important. There's also this choice which simply lets people buy into Medicare if they want:  - the most important information is near the end.  Don't make a decision based on ignorance.  47089
No one has the right to demand that babies should be born, unless first demanding that they not be killed after birth by violence and abuse, or lack of health care.   There is an intelligent end to this endless debate, which will be given if the Insurance Corruption health care plan is passed.    That plan isn't welfare but is affordable for all the middle class, helps small businesses and the middle class survive financially, is voluntary, makes a profit rather than being a burden to taxpayers, and so much more.  The secret to that success is simple, so check it out, then DEMAND it from the government.  That needs to be backed up by actions from the 'fight back' page.  The site is:  47139
and  Never heard of it?  It’s been around since the summer of 2009.  You should be furious that the media is so biased, either in favor of Democrats or Republicans, that they have denied all Americans the right to choose.  They have deliberately kept you ignorant.  You can NOT make an intelligent health care choice until you have the facts.  Another plan simply lets Americans buy into Medicare if they choose at:  - near the end of the interview.   Choose one and never stop demanding it.  We wouldn't be in this mess now if the American people had not been too lazy to do their job, of holding leaders accountable, in the first place.  47140

War: The number of civilian victims is very low; the number of military victims is also significantly lower; those fighting in have a chance to defend themselves; those who fight in wars have voluntarily joined the military.  Abortion: More than 46 million unborn human beings have been legally killed since 1973; an unborn human being cannot defend itself from the abortionist; the abortion victim is not a random victim, but its murder has been premeditated; an abortion victim did not volunteer to be in the womb for it didn't even will its existence. "Pro-lifers aren't pro life at all, especially when they love their money more than health care to keep people alive."

Christians labelling a group of people as evil because others want to point out the flaws in their beliefs or arguments is little different from labelling a group of people as brainwashed because of their faith and their criticism of your argument. Both are making assumptions about of a massive group of people, and both are arrogantly keen to revile those who disagree with them. That does not mean to say I think you are evil and it is not a lie - it’s a perfectly reasonable judgment which you have given me the pleasure of constructing.<quoted text>

FIRST - recognize that Protestantism and Christianity are two different things, going in opposite directions these days.  Christianity is faith, but Protestantism is big business with big churches promoting Republican greed instead of giving, lies instead of truth, etc. - protestant protest. net  Protestant ministers and televangelists tell Americans that their false god demands that they vote Republican, and they follow blindly instead of getting out of those churches and speaking out against that evil.  Republican-Protestant leaders falsely proclaimed 'family values' as they were destroying poor families all across the US, and making millions of people homeless.  They sanctimoniously obsessed over other people's sexual activity while Republican conventions are notorious for promoting prostitution.  It's a long list of fraudulent beliefs, based on unChristian teaching by ministers and televangelists who only want money and power.  They are the ones who will be told:  Get away from Me, I never knew you.  Their spiritually blind followers are probably intending to blame their leaders when judged, but it doesn't work that way.  181

[QUOTE who="Fed Up"]Illegal migrants costly to San Bernardino County Total spent on illegal immigrants elusive
Stephen Wall, Staff Writer  Posted: 02/20/2010 02:50:10 PM PST Four years ago, a group of concerned citizens expressed outrage at the cost of illegal immigration to San Bernardino County taxpayers.  The price tag for six county departments to provide services to illegal immigrants was more than $38 million a year, the county Grand Jury found. Most of the money was spent on emergency health care and law enforcement-related services for illegal immigrants. But that was just a fraction of the tab.
Fourteen other unnamed county departments had no idea of their costs for illegal immigrant services. If those departments had provided numbers, the bill would have been substantially higher, the Grand Jury's report stated. The Grand Jury recommended that the county immediately require all departments to start tracking their costs. The information should be made available to the public as well as to state and federal lawmakers who would take action to solve the immigration crisis if they knew the true cost of the problem, according to the report released in 2006.

Get in touch with reality.  It's the majority that are the problem, plus the ignorance of people like you.  Go back through the posts and read first-hand accounts from witnesses.   They come from a country where the police are some of the worst criminals, the government is even more corrupt than ours, and where crime is everywhere.      They're not going to change, and in fact are trying to change US, our country, our language, etc. to be more like them.  They came here, bringing an 'us vs. them' mentality and we are the enemy. This thread is about their take over of CA, but the majority of blame goes to the citizens of CA and the entire country.  How pathetic are the idiot masses who have let a bunch of immigrant peasants defeat them?  How pathetic are they that they kept Bush in office for 8 years while the country burned?  At legal parasites. com there are ways for those who deserve to call themselves patriots to take back their country, maybe even some in CA are willing to do more than whine and complain.  25947

[QUOTE who="Gonzallo"]<quoted text>First of all let me make something clear, Mexico is not the problem.
It is those American businesses that are encouraging illegal aliens to come into this country by so giving them jobs that Americans refuse to do especially if those jobs pay less than minimum wage, etc., In addition the criminal elements from south of the border are supported by Americans in that the drug cartel's chief customer or consumers are in the USA.  Thus the violence, crisis, and corruption in Mexico is a direct outcome or consequence of the American consumer's indirect support of the Mexican drug cartel via the purchase or consumption of illegal drugs.  In addition the atrocities that are now occurring in Mexico are too a consequence of America's support of the Mexican drug cartel by so selling, supplying, and arming the drug cartel with weopons of mass destruction.  Therefore it isn't surprising that many Mexicans would cross the border into the USA if only to escape the violence or atrocities which are an indirect consequence of America's support of the Mexican drug cartel.  And as far as the election of Barack Obama is concerned, it would be too naive to believe that he had been elected into office based solely on merit alone. Even before his election into the office of the Presidency, race was always an significant factor that played a key role in his election as many of his opponents were not immune to allegations of being racist as Obama's opponents were by and large part and parcel of that white establishment(Bush cronies).
And thus Obama relationship with a black pastor, Jeremiah Wright could be excused as the political correctedness of today subscribes to the notions that no black man in America can ever be held accountable for being a racist let alone associated with a racist black pastor.
Have a nice day.[/QUOTE]
Those businesses are NOT the problem.  The workers were enticed here when Reagan gave them amnesty, as Mexicans kept thinking it would happen again, and it did, from Bush, which caused another wave of illegals.  The problems is Republican greed, money from those businesses.
Americans did NOT refuse to do those jobs.  They only wanted to be paid what they deserved.  It's YOUR fault because you didn't stand behind them, and now we're all paying for it.  It's common knowledge that those same corrupt politicians have encouraged drug trafficking across the border, otherwise IT WOULDN'T HAPPEN.  Certain trucks are waived through and not checked, just as the government falsely claims not to have enough people to check ships' cargoes.    Mexicans would find a way to promote corruption and violence if there were NO drugs, and they bring that criminal mentality with them and promote violence here.  It's the mentality of the Mexican people that won't change, even though they get to this country and have great opportunities.   ANY DEMOCRAT would have been elected after eight years of TREASON from Bush.    26389

It is that self-same white establishment as you will that so espouses democratic principles, freedoms, and liberties yet it does invade with impunity other nations(Iraq, Afghanistan) if only for the express purpose of gaining control of that nations(Iraq) natural resources.(oil)
And thus America invaded Iraq if only to continue with that self-same reason that it invaded that new nation of Mexico and that is only to steal that nation's resources.  And thus it can be justified that muslim nations like Iran and Iraq would want to acquire and develop nuclear weopons as a bully(USA) only understands force.(violence)[/QUOTE]
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Bush invaded Iraq AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME.  Why?  It had been TALKED ABOUT for years.  Because Bin Laden's family and the Bush family were long time friends, so Bush took troops from Afganistan, causing us to lose that war, and sent them to Iraq, for no good reason other than to get revenge against Saddam because daddy Bush humiliated himself and Saddam was their scapegoat.  So, Iraq was one evil motive after another = intelligent-liberals. com.  Muslims want to develop nuclear weapons to destroy Israel from the face of the earth.  26407

It's such an insult. Catholic church is partly the blame as well by the way. Why do you think so many (Americans) are fleeing the Catholic Church? Catholic Church has protected the illegals in Los Angeles. If I were to go to another country, do you think they would give me a lot of freebies? Heck no! Do you think I could fly the American flag so freely in another country? No! When is America going to realize we can no longer keep taking everyone in? California is about to burst at the seams. What are we going to do when we have a super bad drought? What about electricity? We've got too many illegals coming into our country with lots of diseases as well. Who is checking these people? WHO? We have cases of TB - Hepatitis etc. You have people coming into California from third world countries that have no running water or bathroom facilities. My gosh, I do not understand our politicians.

Join the crowd.  Why do you think so many people are leaving both political parties?  None of our problems will be fixed until WE CHANGE.  The politicians we elected are deaf to the will of the people.  Solution? There is only one issue that is able to galvanize both sides, and that is Obama’s health care bill.  Republicans are speaking out, but where are liberals?  Most of them are blindly following their politicians - a dangerous and dead end decision.  If you want to make your efforts count, you have to do more than just complaining to your legislators, although that’s important because they pay attention to numbers.  For all the information, including your choices, see (next post)  26974      And   26975
[QUOTE who="LUNA"]Mexico's Take Over Of California: Complete By 2014?  Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is really scary. I can see it coming already. I don’t think I can take it.  23,932 comments so far. Why can the 23,932 people that are writing comments don't start calling and emailing the congressmen and the president, to complaint about this invasion and to stop free loading all these illegals or they are going to keep coming. Sure they are becoming the majority but the majority are illegal and on public housing, food stamps, WIC Coupons, free medical and dental, free college, free school lunches, etc. etc. Many women can’t work because they are always pregnant. (Sometimes mother and daughter at the same time). They are having kids like rats at the tax payer’s expense.  We don’t want our Golden State to become MEXIFORNIA, do we? [/QUOTE]
What do you think other people have been doing?  You’re living in another era, when legislators listened to people.   They’ve complained about the illegals for decades, and against Obama’s health care disaster for two years, and the results are obvious:  THEY DON’T CARE!
So, we have to do more.  The situation is this:  We have to pick one issue in which most Americans are interested enough to demand legislators obey them, and that issue is health care.  Republicans are at least standing up for what they believe, and ex-Democrats have left the party, but where are the Democrats?  They’re sheep, blindly following Obama and thinking the issue is solved, so they are the biggest problem.   It’s hard to convince them to get informed and get involved because the media is so biased that they’re burying the information they need, such as the existence of much better health care choices.    Here’s a place to start: (next post)  26976

I wonder how many, if any, of the Californians who bitterly complained on this site for so long, have demanded that their government jump in and repeat what Arizona's governor did. It would make more sense than advertising themselves as gutless cowards, or ranting on and on about the situation when they were given solutions which they ignored.  The worst thing they could do would be to elect either the Republican or Democratic candidate.  They are both criminals.  If California is going to stop the suffering they need to elect a good independent candidate, and follow Arizona's lead.  27213
[QUOTE who="Common Cents"]<quoted text>Yes, you are right. The way that the illegals get to live in the public housing projects in Los Angeles is that many of them have children that were born here so they are citizens.  The Illegal Immigrants have large families and family members share different units in the projects so the managenment can't keep track of them.  The illegal parents receive food stamps for the children so they benefit from that type of welfare too. The Congressman from Chicago is sponsoring another "Amnesty" for the Illegal Immigrants: [/QUOTE]

People reading that are just going to say ‘Yeah, but how?’  You don’t give answers.  I have answers. You can make all the demands in the world, but most legislators are going to do what THEY want.   The only solution is for Americans to come together on one issue and overwhelm legislators, and the American people have decided that issue will be health care.  Read all relevant posts, let legislators know you’re demanding one of the other health care choices, then work to penalize them and the media for denying you a vote.

[QUOTE who="Brainiac2"]Here is another view: Times reported in 2005: As the debate over Social Security heats up, the estimated seven million or so illegal immigrant workers in the United States are now providing the system with a subsidy of as much as $7 billion a year.
While it has been evident for years that illegal immigrants pay a variety of taxes, the extent of their contributions to Social Security is striking: the money added up to about 10 percent of last year's surplus. That continues to be true, according to an April 2 editorial in the Times:
In the fine print of the 2008 annual report on Social Security, released last week, the program’s trustees noted that growing numbers of “other than legal” workers are expected to bolster the program over the coming decades. We’re not talking chump change. According to the report, the taxes paid by other-than-legal immigrants will close 15 percent of the system’s projected long-term deficit. That’s equivalent to raising the payroll tax by 0.3 percentage points, starting today. And in a 2007 report, the White House Council of Economic Advisers asserted that, over the long haul, immigrants end up paying off: The long-run impact of immigration on public budgets is likely to be positive. Projections of future taxes and government spending are subject to uncertainty, but a careful study published by the National Research Council estimated that immigrants and their descendants would contribute about $80,000 more in taxes (in 1996 dollars) than they would receive in public services.[/QUOTE]
You need to change your name. The amount of social security taxes paid is the same as OUR CITIZENS would have paid if those jobs weren't taken from them.  Plus, THEY WOULDN'T SEND IT BACK TO MEXICO!!!  Plus, welfare wouldn't have to support Americans who can't find jobs now.  THINK!   28265

[QUOTE who="wizardbard"]Let's look at this realistically. Here's who is all for open borders 1. People who are currently in the country illegally (no big shock there) 2. People who have immigrated to this country legally but have relatives who are here illegally or know someone who is here illegally (no big shock there) 3. The businesses that just want cheap labor and know that someone who is here illegally and gets a job offer certainly isn't going to complain about bad working conditions 4. The Catholic Church which has been losing parishinors right and left over the sex and coverup scandels. They know full well that most of the "illegals" are Catholic.(No big shock there. I'm not unconvinced that the Catholic Church is run by the biggest bunch of hypocrites on the planet)  5. The democratic party who could care less about the well being of those here illegally because they know that, if granted amnesty, they'll vote Democratic.
Can't think of anyone else at the moment but, fortunately, these groups are far outnumbered by those who don't want people in the country illegally and for d__n sure don't want the ones that are here given any form of amnesty. [/QUOTE]
Add to that: The Republican Party, since it was REPUBLICAN REAGAN AND BUSH who GRANTED THEM AMNESTY in the first place, which opened the floodgates and created this disaster.  Add: Protestant churches whose leaders told America that God wants them to vote Republican, and those leaders who never said a word to contradict that. Face it, the problem of illegals is not going to be solved by Arizona or anybody else because the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT won't allow it.  You have to fight smart.
Most Americans are far more outraged about Obama's health care bill than they are about illegals.  So that's the fight to win first.

[QUOTE who="Nickles and Dimes"]<quoted text>I have no recollection of any letter left by LBJ to be opened 50 years after his death. There are records that can be opened to the public fifty years after something or other. Reagan was asked about whether Martin Luther King had communist ties one time, and he replied that he would rather not speculate until the records are opened fifty years after MLK's death or some fifty year period. Reagan was talking about FBI files I think. There may be some FBI files on LBJ. LBJ was in a big scandal right before JFK got killed, and it all went away when LBJ became president.  IF LBJ left a secret letter to be opened fifty years after his death, then it may very well have some kind of information about JFK's assassination. (LBJ's lawyer wrote a book explaining how and why LBJ had JFK killed.) It is hard to know exactly what to believe about the JFK assassination. Most people don't know about the mob ties with the JFK white house and their plots to assassinate Castro after the Bay of Pigs blew up in Kennedy's face. The mob was mad at the Kennedys because the mob helped JFK win in 1960 and JFK and RFK came after the mob ties with labor unions and their investing in Las Vegas. There was a lot of real anger and hostility against the Kennedys by powerful gangsters. They have hours and hours of programs on the History Channel from time to time about the different theories and possibilities connected to the Kennedy assassination back in 1963. The way Ruby shot Oswald looked like someone wanted to silence Oswald. [/QUOTE]
I have no doubt that if the mob or anyone else was behind it, the government would've gone after them.  They staged a cover-up because they were protecting some within the federal government, and the moast obvious blame goes to the military leaders who wanted a war in Viet Nam which he wouldn't give them.  54296

[QUOTE who="Just Saying"]<quoted text>The proposed health care plan will just add billions more to our already huge deficit, and will require ever-increasing tax revenues to support it, which will be forced upon the already overburdened taxpayers.

The only ones who are happy about this are those who will benefit from it, including those who already sponge off the rest of society while contributing little or nothing to it. This is not the "change" most Americans want, yet the activist minority persists in seeking to push their agenda through the majority of Americans who are content with their health care as it is. Most Americans already have a hard enough time paying their bills as it is, without having to pay more to take care of others who can't or won't take care of themselves.

[QUOTE who="Provocateur"]the 1963 killing of Laura's boyfriend. Laura had killed the most popular boy at school, Michael Douglas more popular than Tommy Frank, also a student there, who later would become an Army general and lead US forces in the invasion of Iraq. She stayed home until about Christmas. Laura Bush's mother has expressed thankfulness that it was *not her daughter that was killed*, since the Welches only had one child. This reminds of George Bush's attitude toward Cindy Sheehan (mother of Spc. Casey Sheehan, USA, killed in action in Iraq): "It's not mah son!"   The police report noted that Laura committed two violations of traffic laws that contributed to the wreck: "Disregard stop sign or signal" and "(illegible)" In the box labeled "Is investigation complete?", the police officer checked "No." The officer went through all the proper motions: measured the skid marks, diagramed the wreck, went to the hospital to check on the dead (Michael) and others (Laura and Judy). He took statements from the survivors and photos of the wreckage. The next day, he filed his report. But no test for alcohol. He did not issue a citation to Laura Welch!!!! The investigation apparently was never completed. No grand jury was convened. LAURA'S VERY OWN COVERUP        Media reports have appeared in "Reader's Digest" and other places with incorrect facts that would seem to be ameliorating circumstances. For example: Michael Douglas was driving an open Jeep, from which he could easily be thrown. The wreck happened right after a thunderstorm, which would imply that the pavement was wet and slick. The fact is, Michael was driving a closed sedan that was very small and no match for Laura's much larger car. The pavement was dry, as the officer checked the box on the police report form. Laura never bothered to correct these and other misstatements, including the one that she was not Michael's girlfriend. She will not acknowledge the accident or even her relationship with the victim even to this day.      The true facts came out when the police report was released in 2000, 37 years after the fact, also after the Midland city attorney refused to release the report. The Texas attorney-general compelled the release of the report after a newspaper in another Texas town, Odessa, filed a Freedom of Information Act request.[/QUOTE]

You keep claiming Bush lied and invented the intelligence, yet it is YOU who seem to know nothing of the history related to Iraq's terror or the dates these different events occurred. You seem rather lame, and oh what a shame -- idiots like you continue to lie while claiming it's everyone else whose lying.  I have to question what it would take to change your mind. If for example a authenicated document was handed to a 60 Minute journalist on national tv from Iraq's own internal documents that called bin Laden an asset of Iraqi Intelligence would you think differently? What if Saddam had harbored one of the terrorists who attacked the trade center refusing our access? Would you think differently then?[/QUOTE]
You live in ignorance. For those who want to face reality: Lots of politicians, on both sides of the aisle, made political statements about Saddam, but they all knew better that to act on them.  Until the idiot Bush.  Let's see, he lied repeatedly, and he had his people lie repeatedly, to the press and to the American people.  He falsified intelligence reports that never existed, etc. - to deliberately let bin Laden get away.  They are old family friends of the Bush family, and that's also why Bush got the family out of the country right after 9-11, so they couldn't be questioned.     It's the TIMING.  After all those decades, he put the war in Afganistan on hold, where our troops were fighting those who attacked us on our own soil, so he could start a second war against Iraq.  Stupid!   It was known that Saddam and bin Laden hated each other.  It's common knowledge that in Iraq all we did was destroy a country that was already falling apart.   It's also common knowledge that by doing that Bush has set the stage for a country that will create a whole new wave of terrorism against us.
And we sat by helplessly because of all the American idiots who kept us from impeaching him at the time. 55715

We were already at war with Iraq. We invaded Iraq back in 2003. The removal of Saddam had been planned for years at CentCom. Bush and Cheney decided to go ahead with it, they used their selling points in an effort to get other nations to join us in a broad coalition, but many key nations were involved in deals with Saddam, so they really did not want him removed from power in Iraq.
Saddam was not a real threat to America, but it was possible that he might have gotten some powerful WMD through his black market oil dealings, or even have something hidden in the desert that nobody even knew about. If Saddam had WMD, then it was in the hands of a dangerous guy, and nobody could predict who he might give them to or sell them to. Bin Laden and Saddam were not real cohorts, but they were brothers in religion.  Bush gave Saddam every chance to bow out before we invaded. [/QUOTE]
This is ridiculous.  Either Bush invaded Iraq because he's too dumb to be walking around loose, and wasn't aware of Afghanistan, or he knew what he was doing and was deliberately trying to help bin Laden get away, just as he AIDED that family from getting away (from the U.S. and any questions).  56469
[QUOTE who="Pfluger the Union Monkey"]<quoted text>All of these guys are liars? "The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow." -- Bill Clinton in 1998
"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security." -- Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002 "I am absolutely convinced that there are weapons...I saw evidence back in 1998 when we would see the inspectors being barred from gaining entry into a warehouse for three hours with trucks rolling up and then moving those trucks out." -- Clinton's Secretary of Defense William Cohen in April of 2003  "Iraq is not the only nation in the world to possess weapons of mass destruction, but it is the only nation with a leader who has used them against his own people." -- Tom Daschle in 1998 [/QUOTE]
A basic point from conservatives here seems to be that Democrats were warning about Saddam for years before Bush invaded.
The point I made, months ago, was this:  All those warnings, all those years, but they didn't invade.  No, Village Idiot Bush just HAD to invade shortly after starting ANOTHER WAR in Afghanistan, and he wanted to go even sooner than that.  What kind of moron starts a war, then just gets distracted and walks away?  ( 
It's a real low point in Leno's career whenever he has one of the Bush women on his show.  They have profited from George's crimes, including war crimes, and for him to help them achieve public acceptance, when they should be suffering through his trial for treason.

Obama is making this extremely unpopular decision because he has confidence, now that his health care bill has passed.

Then address the issue of the illegals in the USA.

I agree but nothing will change because the original reason for granting them amnesty was to provide cheap labor for employers who didn't want to pay US citizens a living wage, and that won't change by itself.    Everybody agrees that it needs to change, but most Americans are too stupid to come up with answers, and too dumb to know good answers when they're right in front of them.  I'll bet that almost everybody went right by the earlier posts that explained how we can do it, how we can take back the country. So, that's why this forum has so many posts - losers just want to complain.  Anything else sounds too much like WORK.  Well, then those of you who fit that description deserve to suffer the consequences.   439

Have you been in a coma for three decades, or did you voice outrage when Republican Reagan first granted them amnesty, then Republican Bush did the same thing -- and both committed treason by doing that. If the idiot masses had been outraged back then, we could have prosecuted them, and we'd have a great country today. Instead, by being too lazy, stupid, and gutless to fight back, the American people have created a country in which corruption thrives. Now many Republicans are only complaining because it's being done by a Democrat.  That brain-numbing stupidity is the reason our country is rotting within. Some of us tried to get Bush impeached, to stop the damage years ago, but Republicans stood in our way.  Now, we have a bigger fight on our hands, and the danger is much greater.

Obama is intent on destroying America's status as leader of the world, he as said as much many times regarding his differing view of American exceptionalism.

Progressive is just another name for SOCIALIST. This country is headed for a revolution, but it's not going to be fought with guns. It's going to be fought at the polls. Many who want real change will die by the bullet simply for believing in the founding principles of this country, merely because they go against what the socialists are poisoning our country with. Our children will not look at their ancestors and ask why we didn't fight harder: we were too busy simply trying to SURVIVE all of this idiocy@! Our children will be too busy working for the governments agenda to make everyone EQUAL. Throwing Bush at us as a purported 'insult', or asking anyone to justify what he did is a complete waste of your time, as you will find many a Republican who disagrees with what Bush did. Now we're just doing damage control for the good of people who believe what George Washington, John Adams, and Benjamin Frankline believed. We really aren't convinced we'll get America back, but we have to try. Obama is merely a shitstain on the walls of the White House.[/QUOTE]
The revolution won't be fought at the polls when people are hungry and oppressed. The masses need to take a look at the warnings.  Our country is headed for real trouble. Do you really think our leaders are that stupid, that they'd consistently make that many stupid mistakes, year after year?  The mistakes have sent us into a financial crisis, and Obama's health care bill just makes it worse.  He could have accepted the Insurance Corruption plan that makes a profit for the country, but he sided with the corrupt insurance industry instead, and let them tell him what the bill should say. No, that many mistakes are not accidental.  I believe they're deliberately driving us into a desperate situation so that when the wealthy offer to come in and bail us out, we'll be so desperate that we'll let them take over.  One of the first things they'll do is burn the Bill of Rights, and from then on we will have sold ourselves, and our children, into slavery.

[QUOTE who="drug free"]<quoted text>Racial ‘Cleansing’ in L.A. Federal prosecutors say a powerful Latino gang systematically targeted rival black gang members and innocent black civilians in a reign of terror. A south Los Angeles Latino street gang targeted African-American gang rivals and other blacks in a campaign of neighborhood "cleansing," federal prosecutors say. Alleged leaders and foot soldiers in the Hispanic gang Florencia 13, also called F13, are being arraigned this week on charges stemming from a pair of federal indictments that allege that the gang kept a tight grip on its turf by shooting members of a rival gang—and sometimes random black civilians. The "most disturbing aspect" of the federal charges was that "innocent citizens … ended up being shot simply because of the color of their skin," U.S. Attorney Thomas O'Brien told reporters in announcing the indictments. No one is sure what started the war between F13 and the black gang known as the East Coast Crips in the Florence-Firestone area of unincorporated L.A. County. Simple neighborhood demographic shifts played a role, as formerly black areas have become majority-Latino. The two gangs are also rivals in the lucrative drug trade. Much of the F13 indictments lay out a conspiracy alleging that gang members controlled drug houses where they sold large amounts of cocaine, crack and methamphetamine. Some say the killings began after the Crips pulled a large drug heist against F13 several years ago. Whatever the causes, L.A. Sheriff's Department statistics chart the war's violent toll: 80 gang-related shootings in the past three years, including 20 murders. The federal charges name 61 alleged F13 members in two indictments. The gang-violence charges came in a 53-count RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) indictment against 24 alleged gang leaders, charging them in a conspiracy to sell drugs, possess weapons illegally, and assault and kill black gang members and civilians. In the second indictment prosecutors charged the rest of the men on federal drug-distribution charges. More than 40 of the defendants pleaded not guilty at arraignments Tuesday, according to prosecutors. Michael Khouri, an attorney for Luis Aguilar, 35, says his client left the gang "several years ago" and served recently as a gang negotiator. "Mr. Aguilar will plead not guilty, and he is not guilty," says Khouri. Fifteen of the accused remain fugitives. The indictments provide a telling snapshot of the changing nature of gangs in south L.A. According to federal prosecutors, F13 has grown into a tightly controlled gang of 2,000 members in 30 cliques led by convicts and parolees who are members of the prison-based Mexican mafia. It's a far cry from the '80s, when the black drug gangs, including the Crips and the Bloods, predominated, mining the crack epidemic with ruthless efficiency. Compared with looser Latino gangs that were seen as turf-conscious fighters, the black gangs were organized and disciplined. "The stereotype was that [the black gangs] were all about the [drug] business," says gang researcher Cheryl Maxson, an associate professor of criminology at University of California, Irvine. With the black gangs, "there was a millionaire in every neighborhood" perched at the top of the crack distribution pyramid, adds gang expert Alex Alonso, who edits . [/QUOTE]

Bush is no longer making the decisions, Obama is, and it's high time he took on the responsibility for those decisions insteaad of blaming Bush or whoever! He the one creating the huge debt we have, and if it actually helped us I'd say more power to him but as far as I can see he has done "NOTHING" for our Country but get us further and further in trouble. You talk about Bush lying to us, what the hell do you think Obama is doing and has been all along?
The man has no clue about leadership, and has no loyalty to our Country either. Have you noticed that when he makes a speech there is no longer the American Flag standing behind him at the podium like all past President have done? And have you ever watched him salute the military, it's not a real salute, it's like a quick hurry up and get it over waith type of salute. As the wife of a career Navy man it makes me sick to watch him salute the way he does. And what about this whole oil mess still going on, he's had offer upon offer of ways to clean it up and help from other countries to do it too, why aren't they accepting the help and at least trying some of those methods? Doesn't that seem curious to you, cause it sure does to me! If that ordeal had been dealt with properly from the start, it could have been cleaned up by now. Instead they just keep procrastinating and the oil is spreading further and further! I can't wait til 2012 and he hopefully gets voted out of office! We need to clean house completely and just start over with a clean slate if that's even possible anymore? [/QUOTE]
The truth is that Bush is still to blame for the problems he created that can't be fixed overnight.  Liberals knew that Republicans would be throwing temper tantrums from the minute Obama was elected, complaining that daddy didn't clean up their messes fast enough, and that's what happened.  Some of Bush's betrayal can't be fixed.  Examples:  The deficit he caused won't be paid in our lifetimes, and nobody can bring the dead back to life. Obama deserves blame for what he's doing now.  He seems to be trying to clean it up, but like the BP disaster, it just takes time.  That's why we suffer, because we allow parasites to have power over us and to prey on us. On the other hand, like Bush, he is also making the rich richer and the poor poorer; and like Bush, his followers are idiots, blind to treason.            People:

You're absolutely right about the condition this country's in. However, the cause is a little more complicated than that. First, none of us has the right to judge people when we don't know their situation, and as far as I know, people on welfare are barely able to survive.  If it's as great as you say, why are there so many homeless families with children?  Why are there so many hungry children?  Second, corrupt politicians depend on the masses to turn on each other because it's easier to pick on the poor, etc. rather than those in power who can fight back.  Maybe that's one of the reasons they granted amnesty to the illegals, so we'd blame them.  767

Democrats try to make people jealous of those who are wealthy, and that the wealthy are somehow undeserving of the success they have achieved and thus, they should be punished by having some of their money taken away. Nothing like breeding envy and discontent as a way to gain political power.

Or at best, working for less than he feels it is worth. I doubt he/she will be overly joyed to do that for you (and me). BTW, if you don't believe me, phone the business office of your physician and ASK THEM.  Funny how you never see our president or congressmen making cuts to their own lavish medical coverage plan or in any of the other areas when our government overspends. You NEVER read about our government cutting foreign aid payments to other countries. Not even cutting such payments of billions of dollars to countries like Egypt who hates America. Nor do I see our government cutting payments that go to people that don't work or are in America illegally, etc., etc.  And for those young people here who view Medicare as a government handout or some kind of welfare that should be cut, be advised of the truth. Medicare is a program that was forced on every working American. In my case, it was forced on me back when I first started out my working life years ago. The government forced me into an agreement whereas I would pay a portion of each and every paycheck I earned into a Medicare account my entire working life. At age 65 I could then sign up and be covered by Medicare for a modest monthly payment (a little over $100.00). I honored my part of this agreement and paid over my entire working life and signed up for Medicare at age 65. Although I still work a full time job and out of each paycheck I STILL pay into Medicare just as does someone starting out their working life.  If anyone thinks this is fair, then go on about your business. Otherwise, I hope there is at least ONE reader who will do as I am going to do and make an angry contact with my congressmen and the white house.[/QUOTE]
Where have you been?  Other people have been writing their congressmen for years, and you‘re just now starting?  You’re part of the reason for such massive government corruption. This health care bill is different, though, since most people are against it, but legislators are deaf.  It’s now come to the point where writing is totally ignored, as well as threats to stop donations.  So, now we have to stop the source of the corruption - money from the wealthy.   Everybody needs to read the following, especially post #26, and let legislators know that we’re THAT angry.   (next post)  1857

 Obama: Give Health Care More than a Week  Politics
If you knew about other choices and did not demand one of them, you deserve everything this bill does to you. You are part of the problem because you're not part of the solution. The other choices I know about are:  10
And and Keep discussing them, keep the ideas alive so more people will hear about them and choose one, in addition to emailing, protesting, and whatever else you can do. 11
Obama wants us to give his healthcare bill time because he believes the people will run out of steam and just give up like they always do.
If the American people don't win this fight, they may never get another chance in their lifetimes.  All they have to do is come together to demand a plan that excludes insurance companies.  That alone will: give us a GOOD health care plan without the massive debt,
eliminate the tremendous expense of having to prosecuted all the crimes committed by insurance companies, including murder,
eliminate the humiliation of being a people who are too pathetic to stand up to insurance company crime and greed,  cut the insurance company money used to buy off our political leaders, forcing them to listen to us from now on,  and those who think of themselves as 'good people' won't be paying the government to pay insurance companies to continue to kill people.  Also, if your media has deliberately kept these plans from you, tell them they've lost you as a customer, and why.  We can't have a news media that is so biased that they deliberately hide something this big from us.  Here are the 2 plans that exclude insurance companies: (next post)  24  which makes a profit, helps small businesses and the middle class survive financially, makes a profit but is very affordable, isn't welfare, is voluntary, and much more.  There's a media list - it's been advertised since the summer of 2009.

Landlords who knowingly rent to the illegals should find themselves occupying a jail cell for no less than 11 months and 29 days.

Nope actually it started under Carter. Yea I know how we Republicans like to blame everything on Carter. Reagan tried to appease the illegals by granting them amnesty with a promise of no more illegals crossing our borders. Only problem the Democrats who controlled the Congress at the time could not see thing quite that way. Hey the more illegals they can get in the more money the Democrats are able to get out of them all they have to do is promise them amnesty. Isn't that exactly what Barry and Hillery did back during the campaign. Isn't that exactly what the Congressional Democrats are doing now. Bush had our attention on Iraq and Saddam while Clinton enjoyed the support of a Democratic Congress up to his last 2 years in office and we were held spellbound by Clinton's impeachment and his sexcapades. Then when Bush Jr took office with a Republican Congress he and the Republicans attempted to address the illegal situation thus we got a compromise with the Democrats and we done built us a fence that does very little to stop the illegals from coming here. Just as I said it would. As long as the Democrats are able to make money off of the illegals by promising them amnesty they will fight closing down our borders right up to the last standing Democrat. Don't take my word about the Democrats back during the last election NOT one single Republican spoke before the Hispanics or promised them amnesty except for John McCain. Of course we all know John is a Democrat claiming to be a Republican. [/QUOTE]
Your stupidity based on ignorance is truly pathetic. Homelessness doubled during the Reagan years because he betrayed the middle and lower classes to make the rich richer.  That proves your point that you Republicans do like to blame Carter for things he didn‘t do.
Your comment that Reagan tried to appease the illegals is the height of stupidity.  Did he think they voted for him, or that he worked for them?  Reagan was a slug who, AGAIN, worked to make the rich richer, which meant providing them with cheap labor, so he granted them amnesty.  Republican Bush Sr. did the same thing, which opened the floodgates even wider.  Republican Bush Jr. tried to do the same thing but there was a tremendous outrage that stopped him.  By granting them amnesty, Republicans have taken jobs away from American citizens.
Democrats are making money off the illegals?  What a stupid idea - guess you believe that those Mexican peasants are really wealthy.

Immigration increased after Reagan because people knew that it could happen again, and it did.  That's how Reagan and Bush literally LURED illegals to come to the U.S. to provide cheap labor for their wealthy donors. So, the massive increase in immigration was due to acts of presidents in the decades before Clinton.   The Insurance Corruption health care plan does not give benefits to illegals.

[QUOTE who="Jim Hayden"]<quoted text> To begin with Carter was responsible to the influx of illegals. The Democrat Reagan tried to shut off the flow by offering them amnesty. That only encouraged even more illegals to come here. Bush Sr and Bush Jr had their own private agendas and could care less about the illegals. Clinton opened the flood gates when he signed the NAFTA.  It is the Democrats who want the illegals here so they can get their money and their vote. If it were not for those of us who stood firm against the illegal immigration back during the Clinton Administration all illegals entering this country would be granted automatic citizenship. Heck back during the past 3 elections the Democrats here have hired illegals to work for them. Our city counsel is made up of mostly Democrats and Oak Ridge is a sanctuary city. Now if you want to be totally honest about it. The Mexicans have been jumping the border for over 100 years now only never in the numbers they are today. It wasn't until Clinton signed NAFTA that the Mexicans really started flooding across the border. Also it was Clinton who made it mandatory that government documents be in both English and Spanish and that a Spanish translator be in every government office that deals with the public. Back during the last election both Barry Soetoro and Hillary Clinton addressed the Hispanic Convention and not one Republican.[/QUOTE]
Reagan wasn’t a total moron - he knew that giving them amnesty would keep more coming and would provide more cheap labor, making more American citizens jobless, and some of them homeless.  Bush Sr. did also grant amnesty and don’t try to tell me he was too stupid to know what he was doing.  Bush Jr. tried to do the same, but there was too much public outcry, plus it wasn’t necessary.  All he had to do was to refuse to force them out.  So, Reagan and Bush opened the floodgates by providing amnesty.   It’s Republicans, the party of the wealthy, who want the cheap labor.  Republican Nixon also cut American jobs by sending them to China.  You’re lying to yourself and people who believe what they read.  Here are the facts, and remember, Republican Reagan was president from 1981 to 1989:
“The largest amnesty was the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, which legalized 3 million aliens.”   “In absolute numbers the 1980s saw more immigrants (legal and illegal) than any other decade in U.S. history.”  (Center for Immigration Studies)    See post 135.      140
[QUOTE who="Jim Hayden"]<quoted text> No conspiracy however this has been in the works for quite some time now.

Clinton signed NAFTA which started us down the same road and now Barry Soetoro is continuing what was started back so many decades ago by Woodrow Wilson. The reason why I say this is not a conspiracy is because of the many gaps in the process which has only slowed down the process. As long as people are willing to give up their individual rights for a free government hand out we will continue down this path to the One World Order. What we have here is a very small group of extremely greedy citizens (seeking something for nothing) coupled with a very large group of politicians exploiting them. When about 15.4% of the registered voters elect our president we are in extreme danger of loosing our Freedoms.

From the National Organization For Women:  The health care reform bill passed by Congress…fails in many important respects. After a full year of controversy and compromise, the result is a highly flawed, diminished piece of legislation that continues reliance on a failing, profit-driven private insurance system and rewards those who have been abusive of their customers. With more than 45,000 unnecessary deaths annually and hundreds of thousands of bankruptcies each year due to medical bills, this bill is only a timid first step toward meaningful reform. Fact: The bill permits age-rating, the practice of imposing higher premiums on older people. This practice has a disproportionate impact on women, whose incomes and savings are lower due to a lifetime of systematic wage discrimination.  Fact: The bill also permits gender-rating, the practice of charging women higher premiums simply because they are women. Some are under the mistaken impression that gender-rating has been prohibited, but that is only true in the individual and small-group markets. Larger group plans (more than 100 employees) sold through the exchanges will be permitted to discriminate against women -- having an especially harmful impact in workplaces where women predominate. We know why those gender- and age-rating provisions are in the bill: because insurers insisted on them, as they will generate billions of dollars in profits for the companies. Such discriminatory rating must be completely eliminated.  Fact: The bill covers only 32 million of the 47 million uninsured in this country, does not contain a meaningful public option and provides no pathway to a single payer system like Medicare for all. Democratic negotiators crumpled before powerful business interests and right-wing extremists, and until they get a spine there will be no true competition to help rein in costs.  We still have a lot of work to do before we can genuinely celebrate. 46822
While Obama's plan is so unpopular, Grayson's plan is gaining FAST.  We can easily defeat this reform bill which forces us to finance insurance company corruption by backing one of the 2 plans that eliminate insurance companies altogether.  They are: (next post) - since the summer of 2009.  Did your media deliberately keep this information from you?  If so, tell them they've lost you as a customer/listener because of their bias.  You don't pay them to deceive you. 46823
and  and the interview:      Demand one of these plans and take back the country.  If we can't come together on something like this, which most people are passionate about, we have lost this country to corruption and will lose the ability to fight back in the future.  This is THAT important - the corruption is growing because most Americans have gotten more and more pathetic and weak.  Turn that around NOW.  46824

[QUOTE who="Gregory Scott"]The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care. This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide. If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It doesn't stop there though. 9th Amendment that provides The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people; The 10th Amendment states The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control. I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable. For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

[QUOTE who="Chylloh"]<quoted text>Is that so. Well, I guess the media was lying about the Obama Administration trying to borrow more money from China (or any country stupid enough to loan it to him).The Treasury report of the billions in interest to China was fabricated also. ...or Our national debt is more than $12,787,511,039,184.15. That is how much the United States has borrowed, and how much we have to pay interest on. To put $12 trillion in perspective, our national debt is larger than the total economies of China, the United Kingdom, and Australia combined.  and under current policies, our national debt will continue to grow by hundreds of billions every year. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the national debt held by the public will grow an additional $9 trillion over the next decade, to more than $20 trillion. During that time, the United States will accumulate $2.5 billion in new debt each and every day. That’s $1.72 million per minute, for the next ten years. A Snapshot of our National Debt: The Treasury Department estimates that our debt to China is approximately $776.4 billion, having grown more than $240 billion in the last year. That is more than $10,000 in debt for the average American working family.  According to the Department of the Treasury and Federal Reserve Board, China held $776,400,000,000 in Treasury securities as of June 2009. Therefore, China’s per-capita debt holdings to the United States is $580.00. [Total Securities Debt /Total Chinese Population = $580.00] Each American’s share of that debt is $2,527.24. [Total Securities Debt / Total US Population = $2,527.24] This means that every American owes $580 to 4.36 people in China. Over the course of the next decade, the government will borrow approximately $1.72 million every minute. That’s the equivalent of 5,733 flat screen HDTVs it cannot afford.  From 2010 to 2020, the Congressional Budget Office estimates the cumulative deficit will be $9 trillion. This means that over the next decade $9 trillion will be added to our existing national debt, creating a total debt of more than $20 trillion. According to the January 2010 Congressional Budget Office report, the federal budget deficit in 2009 was $1.4 trillion (9.9% of GDP). The 2010 deficit under proposed policies is projected to be $1.5 trillion (10.3% of GDP). These are the largest deficits relative to GDP since 1945.[/QUOTE]
The American people have been told how they can attack the deficit and get a good health care plan at the same time.  It's a win-win situation, but it's been buried by the media, biased in Obama's favor. The Insurance Corruption Plan also attacks the corruption of insurance companies too, but they have to demand it AND FOLLOW THROUGH with the plan for punishing legislators and the media, to give it teeth.

The thing is that I agree that there needed to be some sort of reform. I believe that insurance companies needed to be brought under control. One example is that I have two insurances. One is a retirement insurance and the other is provided from the place I currently work at. They both receive full premiums yet when a claim is made, they have to "coordinate" benefits. That means that the primary insurance (from my current employer) pays the full benefit and the secondary insurance (retirement) only pays benefits on what is left over instead of on the full amount.(Not to mention that about every two years, they have a battle over who is primary and who is secondary) The bottom line is that the bill should be paid in full if they were both paying on the original bill but instead the secondary insurance pays a pittance even though they received a full premium. In my opinion, it should really be none of their business if a person has two, three, or more other insurances. They should be paying out on the defined benefit for the full price. So, it is things like that that I believe needs to be regulated. I'm sure there are many other situations that are similar. Of course, tort reform needed to be addressed also. Instead, we got a 2000 page document which no one in Congress even read and are now just finding out that it isn't what they thought it was. Screwed again by Congressional incompetence and the dope in the White House.

[QUOTE who="Plant Lady"]'One of the few undisputed aspects of the nation's new health care reform law is that it's going to be costly.
And, if implemented without changes, it will fall to several Catheter Valley companies to foot much of the bill - a prospect that has industry insiders worried about the new law's impact on their ability to survive and innovate. There's a lot at stake for the region, as an estimated 2,000 people in Glens Falls, Queensbury and Argyle are employed at just four of the largest medical device makers that make up the business cluster known as Catheter Valley. The cluster includes several smaller support businesses, as well.  The crux of concern is a 2.3 percent tax on medical device sales within the United States. That tax, which goes into effect in 2013 and is expected to raise $20 billion over the subsequent decade to help pay for the sweeping reform law, has prompted several medical device industry leaders to raise warning flags.
One of the first and most prominent was Minneapolis-based Medtronic, a maker of medical devices ranging from pacemakers to catheter-based products that employs more than 40,000 worldwide. That firm estimated the annual impact on its bottom line at between $150 million and $200 million once the tax goes into effect. The largest medical device manufacturers in Catheter Valley include C.R. Bard, Navilyst, Covidien and AngioDynamics. Officials with three of those firms said in recent interviews that it is too soon to put a dollar figure on the law's impact on their companies, but it's not likely to be positive, and they hope the tax is changed or eliminated before it goes into effect.
"We have not crunched the numbers, but it's going to put pressure on all spending areas of the company," said Jan Keltjens, president and CEO of AngioDynamics, which is based in Latham but employs about 300 at its facility in Queensbury. Big versus small
Perhaps one of the most onerous aspects of the tax is its potential impact on small or start-up companies. Delcath Systems Inc., which plans to employ about 30 people at a new manufacturing facility in Queensbury by the end of the year, could be one of the first victims.
The company's product, a system by which cancer-ridden organs can be isolated and more directly targeted with chemotherapy while minimizing damage to the patient, is only now finishing the lengthy process of approvals for sale in the United States. Eamonn Hobbs, Delcath's CEO, said an across-the-board tax on revenue with no consideration for a company's size could be particularly damaging to firms like his, which have yet to post their first profit. Hobbs said most medical device firms don't even see a positive bottom line until after the first $150 million in revenue each year.  "So, they're losing money, and it just didn't make sense to say, ‘We're going to increase your losses by charging you a revenue tax while you're struggling to profitability,'" Hobbs said. "It's not going to be good for R-and-D; it's not going to be good for jobs, and it's very, very short-sighted." cont"[/QUOTE]
It will be costly, because all the profits go to the multi-billion dollar insurance companies.  The Insurance Corruption plan is for all the profits to go to benefit the people.  That’s why Obama and the media buried all other competition - because his plan can’t compete. The Insurance Corruption plan is also dedicated to taking back the country.  If we can’t come together on this, we never will.  Start here:  (next post)  51548

And I didn't like it when Bush attempted to appease the Socialist/Democrats with the whole "compassionate conservative" shtick, like signing the Medicare Part D crap with Swimmer Kennedy. I would have told the S/D's to shove it up their arses when they loaded every bill with earmarks.

My father served in the military and currently I have a son in the military. I did not serve because circumstances led me in a different direction. (I would have been happy to have served in the military, btw). Instead, I served in the Fire Service and placed my life on the line quite a few times in some extremely dangerous situations. Does this make me less patriotic than someone in the military? Same can be said of others who didn't serve and maybe didn't even serve in a hazardous occupation but contributed to this country in other ways.

By allowing Small Business owners to receive for the first time in history a 1/3 Tax Credit for Health Care Insurance Expenses. Small Business Operators with less than 25 Employees doesn't have to provide coverage, those who do can receive a Tax Credit for doing so., If you value your Employess you compensate them with Health Care Benefits to keep them satsified and help protect their Family and obligations. Not all employeers believe their employees are expendable. Finding good help is difficult.
[QUOTE who="Devin"]<quoted text> Remember the presidential debates in 2000 between Al Gore and George Bush, and how the two men argued over how to spend America’s anticipated $2.2 trillion budget surplus? The country could well have afforded domestic investment in key areas. In fact, doing so would have staved off recession in the short run while spurring growth in the long run. But the Bush administration had its own ideas. The first major economic initiative pursued by the president was a massive tax cut for the rich, enacted in June of 2001. Those with incomes over a million got a tax cut of $18,000—more than 30 times larger than the cut received by the average American. The inequities were compounded by a second tax cut, in 2003, this one skewed even more heavily toward the rich. Together these tax cuts, when fully implemented and if made permanent, mean that in 2012 the average reduction for an American in the bottom 20 percent will be a scant $45, while those with incomes of more than $1 million will see their tax bills reduced by an average of $162,000.[/QUOTE]

While not neutral according to these figures, it is relatively close.[/QUOTE]
Actually, I believe Obama wouldn't let any advocates for single payer into the talks he had (Democracy NOW).  That's consistent - even today the media is burying all competition for his bill, even though they're better for the country and the people.  He has put his ego first, sending us deeper into debt.  Other plans at #51774    51779
[QUOTE who="Pfluger the Union Monkey"]<quoted text>1/10th of one percent? Look, here is my opinion on health care. If Obama wanted to extend insurance (a laudible goal, IMO), he should have come out and stated exactly how much it would cost, and what taxes would be increased. He didn't do that. He claimed he could "bend the cost curve." But, as with all his "plans," there was no plan. Just - poof! - like magic, $500 billion in Medicare savings would magically occur, despite the fact that millions of retiring boomers will be eligible for the first time. He never said HOW the $500 billion of savings would be achieved, and IMO its a totally fictiious number - a plug, to get Nancy Pelosi all "giddy" about how it will reduce the deficit.  Laughable. And, on top of that, health care premiums will really soar this year, contrary to his promises. That is why Dems are now proposing to regulate health insurance premiums, and only allow "reasonable" price increases. LMAO. I hope that next, Obama makes the price of gasoline more reasonable.

[QUOTE who="Pfluger the Union Monkey"]Now I am reading reports from various states, concerning how much ObamaCare will cost them.

Obama conveniently ignored how much states would need to begin budgeting. He also lied when he said its funded at the federal level. He knows it, but doesn't care.  The massive tax increases will come later, because he is a socialist. [/QUOTE]
The best answer is for the government to create an insurance company to compete with corrupt insurance companies, one that is affordable, is voluntary, etc.  It would be very profitable by providing more, which will benefit the middle class.   The insurance industry is very profitable, and the deficit is threatening our country.  By combining those two issues, one helps solve the other. Everybody needs to at least read the posts at:  (next post) and make an intelligent decision.  52265  52266

If the Federal Government decided to start an airline, and could use their powers to print money and subsidize it to an unlimited degree, and then told private carriers to compete, pretty soon there would be no private carriers.
Its even worse than that though, because in my example the federal government would also tell these private carriers what would constitute a "fair and reasonable charge" to fliers. Obama knows this. He is a liar, and a socialist, and he is putting in his programs with arguments he knows are false. ObamaCare is a fiasco. We will see this over the next few years. [/QUOTE]
No, what's insane is people who just let insurance companies (executives, lawyers, employees) get away with every felony they commit. 
Law enforcement has made it clear that they will not prosecute them, that they are truly above the law, we are obligated to fight back.
Even worse, insurance companies and our legislators have worked together to produce laws which benefit them, and violate our legal rights.  .
After all that, I’m not even advocating that we prosecute the worst felonies, but that we act to survive, but it’s always those with a criminal mentality that defends them. What's sick is people who are worried about the 'rights' of those parasites, while good people are dying.

I remember when Reagan did that, and saw it as an omen of more abuse to come, which it did.   Reagan would never have been elected if the media had done its job and informed us about how unpopular he was, and why, after being governor of CA.  We never hold the media truly accountable for all the lies they tell for those in power, etc. and that's why they're lying to us now. They're also withholding informa-tion we need to have, such as better health care choices and the fact that Obama denied those choices to the people, including single payer.  That is another group that needs to be dealt with, and all these things I've been talking about are so EASY to do, but too many Americans are THAT LAZY.   If you’re not one of them, you all need to be informed and make an intelligent decision.  See post 52277         52299

I am not against the deregulation of the airlines. I agree free market enterprise. But when you are talking about the safety of millions on airplanes in the skies there has to maintain some semblance of oversight and growth control. Secondly, it is against Federal Law (5 U.S.C. (Supp. III 1956) 118p.) for a government employee to strike, Union or not. Reagan enforced that law.[/QUOTE]
As I remember it, Reagan enforced the law, but the strike was about a government bureaucracy that didn't care, and they were desperate to save lives.  That's why I thought it was a bad sign, that Reagan was all about power (my way, right or wrong) and could not be trusted to do what's right for the people.  I see Obama doing the same thing with health care (my way, right or wrong).  The other choices are better, so he and the media buried the competition, so I guess it’s more like a dictatorship. 52318

Republican capitalism is based on pumping more currency into the economy than you are collecting through taxation, in other words deficit spending. Democrat capitalism is based on taxing at an amount equal to the revenues being spent in order to balance the budget keeping your interest charges low. This enables us to save money (or the ability to borrow) for a rainy day.  Both Republicans and Democrats support social spending.

How many have been indicted since it was passed? None, and they all know it, so it's only going to get worse for us.  Plus the IRS is included in the bill, so we're surrounded by corruption and abuse.

Bill and Hillary and Kerry and others had the same intelligence. They all supported the war.  Bush ran from nothing. But Obama is losing Afghanistan.  How are we supposed to get out of there by next summer???? What will have changed????? I say we end Obama's war NOW. Today.

The way Obama has handled his health care bill is worse than deception, but complaining about it won't change a thing. 
If critics were really so angry about it, they'd be working hard to push one of the other choices.  They'd be appealing to Democrats who support Obama, giving them reasons why that bill is such a threat, telling them to think for themselves, and put their families before the Party.

Just an opinion here, but what is needed is an enormous commitment on the part of one large newspaper to make the same commitment to investigating the entire process that led to the passage of a 2000 page bill that NO ONE claimed to have read, not unlike the Washington Post's commitment to support the Watergate investigation. It will take courage, but that is what is needed.  Unfortunately the print media is predominantly left in its leanings and isn't inclined to push for genuine research, investigation, and journalism, letting the "chips fall where they may." In my opinion the bill Obama signed into law was without doubt the worst piece of legislation ever placed before a voting body.  Unfortunately those who claim to be doing reportage on the health care legislation are far too ideological to be taken seriously by most Americans because their dice are loaded. I simply want to know what the congressmen and senators voting for the bill received in return for their vote ... for the district, for their state, and for their own political futures.   Its in there, but no one has taken up the offer to do right by the American people. I am not against health care reform in this country. What we have leaves much to be desired.  I say this as the owner of a small business employing 14 people. If the early reports of increases are correct, and I see no reason why they are not, the hit on small businesses will be stunning. It currently costs me $485 a month to provide coverage to EACH employee. Current projections are that that will increase to $605 when we renew our policy.   We are like millions of others who, in a time when resistance to price increases for product or services is heavy, are really being left with no choice but to pay the damn "fine" and toss our employees into a system that will chew them up compared to the B- service they have already been receiving and grumbling about. What they have now will look like heaven in 2-3 years.  But what irritates me more than anything else is that this is not the result of incompetence on the part of President Obama.
This has been a creature created by design. Single payer is the goal ... he has said that in the past ...and we will have whether we want it or not unless one or more the court challenges certain to come up stop the law in its tracks.

[QUOTE who="James_TX"]<quoted text>Not exactly. I wasn't saying Russia was helping us because they are far from doing anything of the sort. My comment was in regards to Russia allowing over flights. They are only allowing those now because we agreed to drop the shield. We completely sold out our national defense (and that of our neighbors) to get a photo op with Russia. As Reagan did, it is fine to reduce the nuclear stockpile. Hell, a large number of those weapons and warheads are aging and it is probably not important to be able to blow up the earth 4,000 times over if we can do it 1,000 times. Our problem in this regard is not a nuclear war with Russia. Our problem is the rogue nation with 1-2 weapons. By dropping the missle defense, we now have killed the most high tech option we had to intercept those.
Again, stop putting so much stock in who "likes" us and how much better the world "likes" Obama then Bush. 1) An increased commitment by NATO to provide security forces does not prove they "like" us more. If they did, the numbers would reflect the same in Iraq (which they don't). This is more a commitment to Afghanistan's government to prevent the re-establishment of the Taliban and protect the nuclear arsenal of Pakistan. This is much more about a commitment to stability then "hey, America is our friend, let's go help".
2) I would take the world fearing/respecting Bush over liking Obama any day. The POTUS should be 100% dedicated to America and the American people first. He/she should take every opportunity to speak about America's unmatched exceptionalism. He/She should ALWAYS make decisions with our nation's and our allies best interests in mind. He/she should always act from a position of strength and act as the leader of the free world. What he/she shouldn't do is apologize for us, give speeches about how many mistakes we make, abandon policies and projects which directly impact our national (and global) security, abandon/distance our allies, etc.  Look at it this way. Let's say you are 10 and both sets of your grandparents are alive. One set allows you to stay up late, eat all the sugar you want, and do whatever you want when you visit. The other set makes you turn off the TV and eat a healthy meal at the dinner table, they only allow you one soda a day, and they make sure you are in bed by 9:00. As a 10 year old, you are going to "like" the first set more because you get what you want and they are push-overs. As a grown up, you are going to respect the second set, because they truly had your best interest in mind. This is the same exact thing.  The world needs to freaking get over themselves and understand that we are the ONLY nation who can lead the free world. They need America to be there when they screw up or someone bigger attacks them. The way all of this is possible is when we are the "strict" set of grand parents. Stern but fair (not your buddy).[/QUOTE]

Obama turns up the heat for health care overhaul  US Politics
Obama scrued up royally by choosing to force Americans to increase insurance company profits instead of life-saving health care. The legislators are ALL just as bad, plus most of the media is biased in support of one side or the other. No wonder plans like 'insurance corruption. com' haven't even been considered. All legislators were told about it, but they rejected it because it leaves out ALL insurance companies, and has far superior solutions. The American people are going to have to FORCE their legislators to do what they want, and there are ideas on the 'fight back' page for controlling congress, no matter what the issue is.

[QUOTE who="Lawrence Wolf"]It's come down to a simple choice. Either you are for the private health insurers stealing your money, while trying their best to deny coverage, or you are for more and better health care coverage for more people, at lower rates. The rest is bullshit.
I do blame the Obama administration for one thing. Use of the term "public option" (formerly the even more incendiary "government option") is a stupid label, that many do not really understand. Many have even taken it to mean government controlled health care, which it most definitely is not.  From the beginning I have been critical of the "public option" terminology. I feel certain if it were called "public choice", that would have been far easier to understand, and would convey the idea to people that they have a free choice of insurance plans, including one sponsored (but not mandated) by the government, that would be one they could select from among others on the market. People would better understand that the decision is theirs to make.  The Congress and the White House should have realized this tone deaf mistake long ago, and done something about it. Maybe they should have hired a smart advertising agency.[/QUOTE]
Only two choices?  This is the result of dumbing-down, of letting public schools turn out people too stupid to think.  The biggest problem America faces is stupidity.  NO, THERE ARE COUNTLESS OTHER CHOICES - GET A FUNCTIONING BRAIN!!!!
The one at insurance corruption. com makes a profit AND eliminates most of the corruption by eliminating insurance companies completely.  It's been advertised since the summer of '09 but: the American masses are too stupid to get something even this simple,    legislators are against it because they're working for insurance companies, lawyers don't want it because they can't defraud us all,  insurance companies are against it because they've paid legislators big bucks to force it on us, etc.  It's a long list, but the fact that so much corruption is against it is one big reason that Americans should demand it. The insurance corruption. com site has ways of dealing with all these problems, on the fight back page.  So, it's not just about health care, it's about taking back your country.  Are you part of the problem, or part of the solution?  It's now or never, as government continues to tighten controls on us.  213

The government's plan is a disaster.  That' why America has to keep demanding other plans. Rep. Grayson has a plan which is similar to the insurance corruption. com plan.  Both eliminate the biggest problem - insurance companies.  They're corrupt, and they are above the law, killing people for greed.  Since the American people have proven they won't prosecute those crimes, we have no choice but to eliminate them completely.  Even now they're raising rates - they clearly hate the American people, and our country.  They gouge us, then they force us to pay for a new plan, and they sabotage that by meeting in secret with legislators and Obama to get the plan THEY want. Americans who still haven't overcome the stupidity of their school education, and whose parents didn't teach them, need to wise up and deal with this problem.

First of all, why do you call the Tea Party "Tea Baggers"? They are called the Tea Party. I assume that you know this but insist on damageing your credibility and showing your ignoance by saying Tea Baggers. This has nothing to do with any sexual fetish. Stay on topic and your posts will receive more consideration.  Second, the Tea Party has never, ever said let's not open up healthcare to anyone. They say that the government is not the way to do it. They say that every social system the government has tried to run in history is either broke or an abysmal failure.  Third, yes, the Tea Party says that they want the government to stop taxing the people. Let them keep what they earn. Do you have a problem with that? If you knew what you were talking about, you would understand that the Tea Party is NOT the republican party. There are many republicans that are not welcome in the Tea Party movement because of their centrist or left leaning views.
And lastly, if you don't think that the current adiminstration is purposely trying to destroy the country for political gain, you need to wake up and look at what they are doing to your freedom. If the government runs the auto manufacturers, the healthcare system, the banks and so on, freedom of the people is lost. The government has total control. Is that what you want? Beacause the constitution was put in place to keep that from happening. [/QUOTE]

Stop taxing people?  You can't be that stupid. 5. Your last point is the most brain-dead of all and, since you are not teachable, I won't waste any more time with you. You are clearly one of the reasons this country is going in the toilet.  You got nothing right, but I'm sure you won't let that stop your mouth.  1090

Unbelieveable. You start off with asking somebody to respond without using emotional arguments, then you blather about how your sexuality is being questioned and how somebody is ignorant by using the phrase "Teabaggers". Remember that the next time one of your brethren throws the "Commie/Marxist/Socialist " card, all interchangeable because they obviously mean the same thing. And if Social Security, Medicare, and government subsidies for are all abysmal failures, come up with specific ideas rather than pointing fingers. And if you would actually show some intellectual honesty, perhaps you would finally realize that this is a very Republican bill, at least it was in the past, as an alternative to Hillarycare in'94. But I understand that it is not convenient for you to admit as much.  As a matter of fact,  When it comes to letting people keep what they earn, then perhaps others should pay what they should. Corporate welfare much? Or is that free-market enough for you? I also find it interesting that "There are many republicans that are not welcome in the Tea Party movement because of their centrist or left leaning views" is the teabagger way. It only confirms the perception that your crew is predominantly a bunch of morons who are basically telling the government to keep their hands off your handouts, such as the case of this fine fellow..   And with the comment about the government running everything and ruining lives, maybe you should get with some people who lost everything due to an unchecked market. I'm sure they are real sympathtic to your caterwauling. Add two wars that Bush had no intention of paying for, and yes, Obama is out to ruin you. Hide the white women!    1081

How are you intending to get power back to the people?  All I see is a lot of venting and media coverage because of the cost of health care.  They’re not a threat to government, because they‘re not threatening Obama‘s bill.  Legislators believe they will vent, run out of steam, and that will be that.  On the other hand, other liberal health care choices are such a threat that the media refuses to inform the American people about them.  One of them comes from a congressman and it’s almost impossible to find that in the media!    I believe the best choice is the Insurance Corruption Plan which makes a profit.  So, why aren’t Republicans getting behind that, if they’re so angry about the cost of Obama’s health care?  That site also gives ways of REALLY taking back the country.    The fact is that the American people will run out of steam and all will be lost unless people spread the word about other (middle-of-the-road) choices - the media won’t.  Fight back or lose this one chance.  (next post)  1500       And  1501

Insurance Corruption has had a similar plan since the summer of '09 in which people would buy into an independent plan, similar to an insurance company, which would make a profit, etc.  Very important:  BOTH PLANS ELIMINATE SLEAZY INSURANCE COMPANIES, THEIR FRAUD, CORRUPTION, AND ABUSE. Remember 9-11, Katrina, and other disasters in which insurance companies refused to pay, defrauding the victims?   Even now, insurance companies are gouging people, raising rates while they have massive profits.  Pick one of these plans, or demand both, but also let your media know you're boycotting them because of their bias.  They should have let you know about the insurance corruption. com plan in the summer of 2009.  This has been an eye-opening revelation into how biased the US media really is.  Make them pay for their part in the deceit.
The are:  and l - the most important part is near the end.  2
The insurance companies are the problem, so the last thing we need is to be forced to subsidize their corruption and abuse.

[QUOTE who="lily boca raton fl"]<quoted text>Did you ever go to school?
Ronald Reagan was a white supremacist to his very core, and left enough traces over his lengthy political career so that it’s evident for anyone who cares to look—which apparently few do. Domestically, he opposed every legislative remedy for African Americans, betraying a meanness of spirit and an open racism. As Sidney Blumenthal wrote in The Guardian in 2003: Reagan opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, opposed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (calling it "humiliating to the South"), and ran for governor of California in 1966 promising to wipe the Fair Housing Act off the books. "If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house," he said, "he has a right to do so." After the Republican convention in 1980, Reagan traveled to the county fair in Neshoba, Mississippi, where, in 1964, three Freedom Riders had been slain by the Ku Klux Klan. Before an all-white crowd of tens of thousands, Reagan declared: "I believe in states' rights."  It’s hard to believe now, but in 1965, a higher percentage of congressional Republicans voted for the Voting Rights Act than Democrats. Reagan, then, wasn’t following party tradition; he was making a grab for the white racist vote—and it worked. Southern Democrats abandoned the party en masse for one more welcoming to white supremacy. No wonder so many loved, and still love, the man: He validated people’s whiteness. [/QUOTE]
To be fair, Reagan apparently hated everyone who wasn't rich.  For example, he created the homeless crisis.  He was just plain evil, but he got away with all of it because he epitomizes Republican ideals:  Be a phony who acts like God's political representative, while trying to destroy everybody who doesn't agree with you.  It works because Republican voters see what they want to see.   1360

No, I think she’s after the attention mostly.  Sad.   Now, to the important stuff:  Nobody should be forced to buy health insurance.  The Insurance Corruption plan is voluntary, makes a PROFIT, lets small businesses off the hook, and so much more.  There’s also a plan that just lets people buy into Medicare.  However Obama refused to allow the American people to choose a different plan, went back on his word to let someone talk about single payer in the discussions last year, and the media has helped him bury those plans.  One of them is from a Congressional Legislator!  That’s how corrupt the whole thing is, because the other plans are far superior to Obama’s.   Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s killing us.    The IC Plan also includes optional insurance of all kinds, to help the middle and lower classes survive financially.
We wouldn’t even be having to deal with all this now, if the American people had a voice in 2009.  So, we need to penalize the media too.  To read about the choices, penalties for deaf legislators and the biased media, go to: (next post)  1525

Q&A: What next for US healthcare reform?        Health care policy forum
[QUOTE who="HumanSpirit"]Get rid of the Mental health Industry that has plagued the health and welfare of the public with no science and has bilked the government and insurance industries on made to order mental illness.. There is no medical model and no evidence based medicine (EBM)and the industry lied about chemical imbalance to compromise the sanity of the people (children and infants).
Violence, Deaths Murders and Suicides from mind drugs. SSRI stories  There Are No "Chemical Imbalances" "The hypothetical disturbances of neurochemical function that are said to underlie "mental illness" are just that: hypothetical. No experiment has ever shown that anyone has an "imbalance" of any neurotransmitters or any other brain chemicals. Nor could any conceivable experiment demonstrate the existence of a "chemical imbalance," simply because no one, least of all the biopsychiatrists, has the slightest idea what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" would look like." "...the views and beliefs of biopsychiatry have nothing to do with the answers to scientific questions in any case: the hunt for biological "causes" of "mental illness" is an entirely fallacious enterprise in the first place; the non- existence of data to support its assertions is quite beside the point."     "The latest edition of one pharmacology text has this to say about the status of depression as a disease: "Despite extensive efforts, attempts to document the metabolic changes in human subjects predicted by these [biological] hypotheses have not, on balance, provided consistent or compelling corroboration." This is a long-winded way of admitting that not even a scrap of evidence supports the idea that depression results from a "chemical imbalance." Yet patients are told every day - by their doctors, by the media, and by drug company advertising - that it is a proven scientific fact that depression has a known biochemical origin. It follows directly that millions of Americans are being lied to by their doctors; and people surely can't give informed consent for drug treatment when what they're being "informed" by is a fraud.... To sum up: there is no evidence whatsoever to support the view that "mental illness" is biochemical in origin; in other words, things like "Unipolar Disorder" and "Attention Deficit Disorder" simply do not exist." [/QUOTE]
I've heard, and do now believe, that our corrupt government agencies, such as the FDC, label as many conditions as possible, as 'diseases' because they've been bought off by the drug companies who can then sell drugs for those conditions and make a fortune. It also give them the ability to legally prevent anybody from promoting natural cures. They are PARASITES, destroying lives and quality of life, and the American masses just let it victimize them.  Until the American people take a lesson from the Mexican illegals who stick together and lie for each other for their mutual benefit, nothing will change. We have to work together on ONE ISSUE, and the American people have already decided that issue is Obama's health care bill because it's abusive and a financial disaster.   Join others and fight back - (see next post)   8    And    9
What's next is that we will have a good health care bill, if the American people are doing their job.  Most people have done almost nothing to combat corruption in government (bi!ching doesn't count). So, this will tell whether they're able to learn, or if they are THAT lazy and stupid.  Every day that goes by means more money down the toilet, OUR money spent on a disaster.

Is it THAT hard to understand that, since they're the cause of our health care insurance problems, they should not be part of the solution? There are two choices in that post and every intelligent person should be able to agree with one of them enough to DEMAND it.(If you know of others, SPEAK UP). Now we have to take it a step farther because Democratic legislators and Obama are not listening to us. The only thing they hear is the sound of insurance company money coming their way. By fighting that bill, we're also fighting that corruption.  Plus, by taking it farther (insurance corruption. com -'fight back') we're letting them know they pay a price for not listening to us.  It's the same with the media. Have you seen one of the other plans anywhere? No, because they're THAT biased. Let them know they've lost you as a customer because of that. That's the only thing that will get their attention. The way this bill has been pushed on us, and the media cover-up, has been a really eye-opening experience. Those who don't learn from it are truly hopeless."
So, the two I know about are  - since summer 2009, but the media has buried it, and from Bill Moyers Journal:  - new but gaining ground. Both of these solutions are so far superior to the bill just passed, and both eliminate the cause of our problems, corrupt insurance companies.  1728
The IRS is going to have another reason to come after us like Nazis = they're going to be enforcing the new healthcare bill.  If you were in a coma, or had some other legitimate excuse to do nothing to stop that bill, you need to pull your weight.  This is going to be extremely abusive and will be an ongoing violation of our rights. Tell your legislators you want one of these plans which help save us financially by keeping insurance companies from keeping all the profits:  which I think is the best plan because it FORCES DEAF LEGISLATORS TO OBEY THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE (Fight Back! page), (next post)  1796

There are warning signs, but you seem to want to ignore them.  The Nazis also exercised great control over their own people, causing them to live in constant fear of the government.  It started with the obedient masses believing the government's lies, THEN progressed to physical attacks against those they saw as enemies, and their own people who refused to obey without question.       1799
[QUOTE who="PDupont"]<quoted text>Oh yeah, the old fear the government shtick. The reason that the right wing calls for smaller government is because their big corporate donors know that a small government is less able to protect the citizenry against their abuses. Corporations will not pay to abate air and water pollution, provide safe working conditions or assure consumer protections on their own they need a robust system of regulation.  Your comparison to Obama and the likes of Hitler and Mussolini is stupid beyond belief. You’d have to look to the previous administration for that. Hitler, Mussolini and Bush were put into power by the corporate elite. Bush’s Patriot Acts bear an uncanny resemblance to Hitler’s Enabling Acts. [/QUOTE]
Good comments.  Republicans are consistent in their obsessions to make corporations wealthier and more abusive toward people and the earth. The only good thing I can say about them, with reservations, is that at least they're fighting Obama's bill.  Democrats should have shown that much activism when Bush attacked Iraq. Democrats:  If you blindly trust Obama or any politician, you need to get informed about this bill.  If you don't your party will suffer in every coming election for years.  Read and learn, then make an intelligent decision.

Affirmative action was allowed by the Supreme Court as a temporary exception to the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution until blacks had the same opportunities others did. It has now been about forty years, and the goal posts have moved farther and farther Left. Today it's not just blacks -- it's women, homosexuals, and illegal aliens. And it's no longer equality of opportunity, but equality of outcome, which was the goal of Communism for seventy years in the Soviet Union, until the whole Soviet Empire crumbled as a result. The election of Obama was a combination of affirmative action and reparations politics on the part of well-meaning white Americans troubled about the past and also the present. The election of America's first black president, it was believed by many, would show that America had redeemed itself, overcome the supposed sins of its past, and lead the way into the brave new world just around the corner. It seems to me that many journalists thought this way. They were mesmerized by the racial angle, circled it continuously like the moth fascinated by the flame. For them, and I suspect for many others who supported Obama, it was all about race. Obama met their minimum threshold for qualifications -a very minimum threshold indeed- so the thing that got him elected was his 1/2 black status. No merely white candidate with Obama's shady past and astonishing lack of qualifications could have even made it up to the starting gate, much less campaigned for and actually won the presidency.

[QUOTE who="the Messiah"]<quoted text>Should we arrest Obama for Treason? Obama breaks the Law with Assassination Order of US citizen In late January, I wrote about the Obama administration's "presidential assassination program," whereby American citizens are targeted for killings far away from any battlefield, based exclusively on unchecked accusations by the Executive Branch that they're involved in Terrorism. At the time, The Washington Post's Dana Priest had noted deep in a long article that Obama had continued Bush's policy (which Bush never actually implemented) of having the Joint Chiefs of Staff compile "hit lists" of Americans, and Priest suggested that the American-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was on that list. The following week, Obama's Director of National Intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair, acknowledged in Congressional testimony that the administration reserves the "right" to carry out such assassinations.
Today, both The New York Times and The Washington Post confirm that the Obama White House has now expressly authorized the CIA to kill al-Alwaki no matter where he is found, no matter his distance from a battlefield. I wrote at length about the extreme dangers and lawlessness of allowing the Executive Branch the power to murder U.S. citizens far away from a battlefield (i.e., while they're sleeping, at home, with their children, etc.) and with no due process of any kind. I won't repeat those arguments -- but I do want to highlight how unbelievably Orwellian and tyrannical this is in light of these new articles today...
And what about all the progressives who screamed for years about the Bush administration's tyrannical treatment of Jose Padilla? Bush merely imprisoned Padilla for years without a trial. If that's a vicious, tyrannical assault on the Constitution -- and it was -- what should they be saying about the Nobel Peace Prize winner's assassination of American citizens without any due process?  No due process is accorded. No charges or trials are necessary. No evidence is offered, nor any opportunity for him to deny these accusations (which he has done vehemently through his family). None of that.  Instead, in Barack Obama's America, the way guilt is determined for American citizens -- and a death penalty imposed -- is that the President, like the King he thinks he is, secretly decrees someone's guilt as a Terrorist. Who is going to arrrest the criminal Obama before he assassinates one of us?[/QUOTE]

Reminder: Republicans Were For Obama's Health Insurance Rule Before They Were Against It   CANT FIND THREAD
Republicans have no choice - they have to demand a better plan, along with all intelligent Americans, because the government plan is a disaster.  Since the media has denied you the right to free choice, you MUST tell them they've lost you as a customer / viewer/ listener, (with these exceptions). The first plan has been around since summer 2009 - did the media give you this choice?
Here they are:   267
And   and 268
And This bill is a disaster, which is evidenced by the underhanded tricks they used to get it this far. Yes, health care is good, but NOT THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE, designed to force us to subsidize yet more corruption - the insurance industry.  More evidence of how far the corruption reaches is this:  THERE ARE OTHER HEALTH CARE CHOICES, BUT DID YOUR MEDIA KEEP THAT INFORMATION FROM YOU? Yes, most of them did. 1. Let them know they've lost you as a customer / viewer because of that.
2. Demand one of the other plans from your legislators, and don't stop even if it takes years. 3. Let them know you're never sending them or their party another penny until they do. Other choices:    425
1. has been around, and heavily advertised, since summer 2009.  Advantages:  makes a profit, voluntary for people and small businesses, low premiums, etc. - but best of all, it takes all the profits from the sleazy insurance companies and their scumbag lawyers.  This is the only way to fight that corruption until the American people develop a spine and prosecute them.
2. - just letting people buy into Medicare if they want to.  The most important part is near the end.  Advantage:  saves a fortune by not setting up another government, and EXTREMELY complicated, government bureaucracy which won't work for those reasons.  SPEAK UP NOW OR FOREVER PAY THE PRICE!!!  426
I just tried to post important information which would bring Republicans, Democrats and independents together on this bill, and would give them the information the media is not giving, in the US Politics forum, but it was all deleted.  That should scare everybody.  Is it a sign that the government is already stepping in to curtail free speech?  Remember that Obama is going to use terrorism as an excuse to control the Internet.   At the very least, demand that the person responsible for the deletion be fired - we have to fight for free speech every time.
Think it's not really a problem?  Name the other health care choices you've read about in the media:  587
[QUOTE who="Democrats are Retarded"]<quoted text>There is no right to free speech.  The first only says "CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW" proof of no right ? Can you yell fire in a theater ? NO = No right to free speech[/QUOTE]
Not clear thinking - that's public endangerment. We have the right to free speech because congress can't make it illegal.
People:  Because your media deliberately kept the truth from you, that you had OTHER health care choices, you not only have the right, but you have the obligation to tell them that they've lost you as a customer.  If they took your money, leading you to believe they would keep you informed and didn't even mention the plan at even once since the summer of 2009, then they defrauded you.  There's also a plan which would simply give people the opportunity to buy into Medicare if they wanted to, near the end of the interview:  We are losing free speech - today I tried to post more info on US Politics and the entire thing was deleted.  That person should be fired because nobody can make an intelligent health care decision until they have all the information - it's that important. 589
Corrupt, greedy insurance companies are the cause of all our health care problems, so why would you want them to be any part of the solution?  No plan will work if they are part of it. Both the American people and the government have proven beyond any doubt that they're not going to prosecute crimes committed by insurance companies, not even murder.  So, how can anybody be so stupid as to believe that would change?  The insurance companies KNOW it won't.  Did your media tell you that you had other choices?  Tell them they've lost you as a customer for that. Here are two choices that exclude all insurance company involvement:  651

[QUOTE who="Teach"]<quoted text>Big Pharma is making profits hand over fist while we all point and blame the insurance companies. Pharmaceuticals actually contribute to the cost of health care, while insurance reflects the cost of health care. If health care costs go up, so do the costs for insurance.  Yet lately, I've noticed that every other commercial on TV is a lawsuit aimed at the Pharmaceutical companies. Blood thinners, heart meds, diabetic meds, birth control...the list goes on. This is why we need tort reform. This is also why we in the U.S. pay more for drugs than other countries. Tort reform would do a lot more to lower the costs of health care than just capping malpractice suits.  Can you give us an example of an insurance company murdering someone?[/QUOTE]
You've got to be kidding.  Don't you ever watch shows like '60 Minutes', or do research?  Most of the country is up in arms about what insurance companies have done to them, or someone they know, or are worried that they'll be next.   Tort reform helps insurance companies profit, just like Obama's bill does.  It's criminal that legislators are trying to force people to finance corruption and murder.  That includes denying benefits until it's too late, cancelling people when they get sick and become a negative cash flow, etc. I've given great choices, hope you made a note of them because they're often deleted by Topix, so it's important for people to copy those sites right away.  They're almost impossible to find anywhere else because the media is biased either for Democrats or Republicans.  Information is priceless, if you didn't get it, you will be left behind.   686
[QUOTE who="Teach"]<quoted text>Great screed, but what's it got to do with Big Pharma and their profits? Since you're such a fan of research, I'm sure you already know the percentage of profit these companies are making. And, of course, you understand that drugs are a big part of the cost of health care and that we pay more for those drugs in this country than anyone else in the world. I merely pointed out that they are constantly being sued and that this is greatly contributing to the costs that we Americans are paying.  Tort reform would lower costs for doctors, who pay through the nose for malpractice insurance and would probably lower the cost of Pharmaceuticals. That, unlike anything in the health care bill, might actually lower the cost of health care.[/QUOTE] 695
So, when you told your legislators which plan you wanted, did you include all this information?   Did you put your solution on a website and tell everybody you know, and the media, so they could also demand it, if they wanted to?  Or, did you demand the insurance corruption. com plan, and include these comments, as the site suggests?  If you have answers, and have not done these things, then what good are they?  717
[QUOTE who="PlacitasRoy"]<quoted text>Still spewing the debunked IRS fear mongering carp? LIEs! Are you that ignorant or are you just intentionally and maliciously LYING? From "This wildly inaccurate claim started as an inflated, partisan assertion that 16,500 new IRS employees might be required to administer the new law. That devolved quickly into a claim, made by some Republican lawmakers, that 16,500 IRS "agents" would be required. Republican Rep. Ron Paul of Texas even claimed in a televised interview that all 16,500 would be carrying guns. None of those claims is true.  The IRS’ main job under the new law isn’t to enforce penalties. Its first task is to inform many small-business owners of a new tax credit that the new law grants them — starting this year — which will pay up to 35 percent of the employer’s contribution toward their workers’ health insurance. And in 2014 the IRS will also be administering additional subsidies — in the form of refundable tax credits — to help millions of low- and middle-income individuals buy health insurance.
The law does make individuals subject to a tax, starting in 2014, if they fail to obtain health insurance coverage. But IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified before a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee March 25 that the IRS won’t be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. He said insurance companies will issue forms certifying that individuals have coverage that meets the federal mandate, similar to a form that lenders use to verify the amount of interest someone has paid on their home mortgage. "We expect to get a simple form, that we won’t look behind, that says this person has acceptable health coverage," Shulman said. "So there’s not going to be any discussions about health coverage with an IRS employee." In any case, the bill signed into law (on page 131) specifically prohibits the IRS from using the liens and levies commonly used to collect money owed by delinquent taxpayers, and rules out any criminal penalties for individuals who refuse to pay the tax or those who don’t obtain coverage. That doesn’t leave a lot for IRS enforcers to do...." there's a lot more:[/QUOTE]

That gives Congress incredible leeway to regulate interstate commerce and nearly unlimited ability to levy taxes. I think the Republicans will probably pick up a few seats in November, but I'll bet anything that they don't take majorities in either chamber. And even if they DID, and could get the 60 votes needed to repeal healthcare (it'd NEVER happen, btw) it would go straight to Obama's desk... and he'd veto it.
Right now there is not a single GOP candidate who could come close to beating Obama in 2012, thought granted that's a ways away. But if you cons insist on such a fractured view of reality, just don't be surprised when you lose big in 2012. Again. Right now Obama is doing far better than Clinton or Reagan in their second years. Look it up.  And your notion that "80%" of AMericans favor repeal is perhaps the looniest thing you've said. I know conservatives love to lie about the healthcare polls, but 80% was NEVER an accurate figure. 
And currently only 52.4% oppose healthcare:  That number is sure to shrink as people get used to it, and understand the REAL benefits. And don't forget that a significant percentage of those who are against it are liberals, who fought it because it wasn't LIBERAL ENOUGH. You think they're gonna vote against Obama in 2012? Ridiculous.[/QUOTE]
We liberals who fight against it, have many reasons.  You seem to be unaware, as some of us know, that it has some really bad provisions, and that there are better choices. Did it never occur to you that something is wrong when other choices are buried, by Democratic politicians and the media?  Didn't it make you think when you saw how badly they handled this in Congress? It's because this bill can't compete with other plans, and I assume those politicians have a hidden agenda, perhaps more control over the American people, perhaps they sold out to insurance companies and are forcing us to subsidize their greed, maybe all of the above.  Whatever people think, those who remain with the Democratic Party are actually betraying the party by blindly following Obama without listening to other ideas and criticisms, because if it does turn out bad, the Party will pay.  That means Republicans will be back in power.  So, which are you loyal too:  that party or your country?  754   And Check out:    755

Thanks to Democrats, Mass. has good health care, but they sabotaged the rest of the United States by voting Republican.  We'll never know how many people those idiot voters have murdered because they won't get help in time.  I hope the new Mass. leadership cuts all health care for that state, because that' what Republicans do.  There's more at intelligent-liberals. com about this and how liberals can work together to fight morons who are allowed to vote. #1
You fools set us up to be ruled by Palin -- yes there are THAT MANY idiots who will vote for her, believing Republican lies about Obama.  While you threw your little hissy-fit against Democrats, it's liberals who are worried about this country SURVIVING!  #5

Should the US have universal healthcare?
We need GOOD health care, so intelligent people have known all along that they can't just complain, they have to have something better for people to support.  Unfortunately, this all goes over the heads of the idiot masses, so they're just posting endless garbage that accomplishes nothing.  So, even though they've probably ignored every intelligent idea because they're too lazy to try to understand it, unless they join with intelligent people and tell Congress clearly what they DO want, we will suffer with this health care bill. Here are two which are voluntary and save the taxpayers a fortune because they eliminate the cause of all our health care problems, corrupt insurance companies which have paid our legislators to force us all to subsidize them:  80054

[QUOTE who="Glass Houses Break"]Anyone have any comments now that the health care bill is law??? It always amazes me that there is always someone out there saying that the fed government if too large. But who do you look for when there is a disaster? If there was such a thing as federal criminal law that applied to ALL states, there wouldn't be states like Texas that would rather just kill the damn criminal - who cares if s/he may be innocent. Or states where mere possession of marijuana is a crime that can cause you to go to jail for 10-15 years while it is legal in other states! How about treating juveniles as adults when the D.A. wants to - just so he can run for governor! Ever notice that D.A.s, in general, ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to question the fact that they may have made a mistake, especially when another person admits to a crime while the innocent person rots in jail because the prosecuting D.A.doesn't want to ruin his record of being "hard on crime"! Which state would you rather live in - the one that throws away the key for children who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or the state that is willing to give the alleged crime a second look. If you live in Texas, you would be given the death penalty and dead before ANYONE took another look.
Bottom line, if there were federal laws for certain issues, that allowed everyone to have truly EQUAL rights, wouldn't that be better than one state doing one thing while another state does something else - both for the same reason? We really don't have equal rights, but wouldn't it be great! Just a great as universal health care so that EVERYONE would be treated for their medical issues without regard to "Let me see your insurance card first!" when you walk into a doctor's office. And WHO do you think makes the decision on what kind of treatment you will receive? The doctor without any pressure from anyone so that s/he actually TREATS you as you should be treated medically? NO!NO!NO! It's the damn insurance companies who "have paneal" who make the decision, or a doctor who allegedly reviews your case from thousands of miles away and says they will not authorize the treatment the doctor says you need. And these panels of allegedly medical personnel (I sincerely doubt it IF there is even a panel) and the individual doctors who are paid by the uinsurance companies to deliberately deny treatment - ALL of these people - IF THEY EXIST! (ever try to look up a doctor's name that is at the bottom of the page you get from the insurance company and who is denying your treatment? Very often doesn't seem to exist!) are PAID BY THE INSURANCE COMPANIES! And you are afraid the federal government is going to take over those decisions?! Better them than the insurance companies who HAVE to make sure that their shareholders get their dividends, and their CEOs get their monster bonuses as well as the rest of management and the adjusters who get bonuses for denying coverage to people people who don't know how to fight them! Did you know that? Insurance adjusters are paid for denying coverage and getting away with it. They are also paid to lie, as well as doctors who want to keep their business! So don't think the feds will do worse. If the insurance companies haven't already dont it, it can't be done. In other words, the fed certainly cannot come up with all the tricks of the trade that insurance companies have perfected.[/QUOTE]
I can tell you that the insurance companies are working with the legal system and legislators to treat us like we are the enemy.  You have NO rights that they don't let you have.  Laws are written to protect insurance companies which violate our legal rights. Obama's bill was supposed to change that, and he has been challenged to start prosecuting ins. co. execs, but he hasn't prosecuted even one, and doesn't intend to.  His entire bill is a fraud. We need a GOOD health care plan, but the media has buried those choices, so unless the American people want to do more than complain and be forced to pay for a bad system and a financial nightmare, they have to spread the word themselves.  I bet there are so many loser on topix who do nothing but complain, every day all day, while all that time could have been used to actually accomplish something.  Everybody needs to help, join with those who have already demanded one of the better plans, and help penalize deaf legislators and the biased media. If the next post is deleted, go to US News and search for: Those Opposed to Obama's bill:  83063     and   83064
[QUOTE who="gump hump"]Insurance and Risk Pooling Risk Insurance is a method of pooling risk to minimise the cost of rare events to any one person.     Insurance works well for situations where the risk has low likelihood, but high impact. For example, the likelihood of a person’s house burning down is quite low. However, the impact on the inhabitants is enormous, if it does happen. House insurance is method for pooling the risk and spreading the costs of fires across all homeowners. In a city with a thousand homes, only one homeowner might experience a catastrophic fire in their house in any year. If everyone who lives in the city pays into an insurance fund, each home owner will only have to pay one thousandth of the cost of rebuilding a home to give the insurance fund enough money to pay for the cost of replacing the one house that is burnt down. Homeowners have several good reasons for paying into an insurance fund.
No one knows in advance who will have a fire. It might be me.      The cost of a fire would be devastating for the family whose house burns.
       The cost of the insurance is relatively cheap. The probability of a house going on fire can be estimated by investigating at the history of house fires. Insurance deals effectively with risk like a house fire, because it is relatively rare. The insurance company is able to estimate the probability of fires occurring and calculate an appropriate level for premiums. Everyone benefits from sharing the costs of the fire, because they know that next time they could be the one facing a tragedy. Insurance is very effective for risks with low likelihood and high impact, but it stops working if the risk changes from being low likelihood to extremely widespread. That is why insurance companies have exemptions for extreme events like war and “acts of God”. If the city is bombed during a war, nearly every house might be burned down. In that situation, sharing the cost does not help. Paying for a thousandth of the cost of rebuilding all the houses is no cheaper than the cost of rebuilding your own house. Pooling the risk of an event that will affect everyone the same makes no sense. Insurance cannot deal with a widespread risk, because there is no benefit in pooling the costs.[/QUOTE]
Sounds good, but I couldn't find in your post where the billions of dollars come from that are given to the criminals at the top, as a reward for victimizing the little guys.    The Insurance Corruption plan would charge very low premiums because there would be no parasites at the top.  It wouldn't be another government bureaucracy because incompetent people would be fired.  It would help the middle class survive what the insurance industry REALLY is.  (next post)   And   especially posts 83 and 86.

Southern Baptist Leader: Obama 'Very Dangerous'
It's Protestant leaders like this who have destroyed the U.S. economically and morally by telling us for decades that their false god wants us to vote Republican. That is the reason the American people are suffering now, because they let the real God be used for Republican-Protest ant profit. It will destroy us if we don't stop them - protestant protest. net says we're flirting with disaster because the masses obey without question, and without using their own brains. So, now they don't know the difference between good and evil anymore. (4 min ago | post #6)

That lesson doesn't mean anything if you don't apply it to what's happening now.  Protestant ministers, who told us that God wants us to vote Republican, put Bush in office and kept him there while he nearly destroyed this formerly Godly country.  Now we're being punished for that.  If Protestants don't turn away from those churches, we'll be in for much worse -- protestant protest. net.  Plus, we need to hold them accountable.  9

[QUOTE who="Jeffery Wright"]Giving the USA back, one day at a time: California Students Punished for Patriotism
Yeah, just don't ever accuse the public school systems of progressive indoctrination. Five students at a California high school were forced to leave school and then face disciplinary action yesterday for the crime of wearing clothing printed with American flag designs.
"(The Principal) said we could wear it on any other day, but (May 5) is sensitive to Mexican Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today," Daniel Galli said.  So, they wouldn't have gotten in trouble for wearing the shirts on St. Patrick's Day? I guess that means people of Irish descent are considered real Americans, but those of Mexican descent aren't, at least, not by public school administrators.    [/QUOTE]
That’s outrageous.  Shame on the Morgan Hill parents if they aren’t working to get that principal fired.   There are warnings all over the place, that we are losing our freedoms, and losing political power, based on the fact that legislators totally ignored the fact that most people are against Obama’s abusive health care bill, not against health care itself. If you’re not actively involved in penalizing them all, including the media that buried all other health care choices that were far superior to Obama’s then you deserve to pay for the rest of your life.  Nobody’s going to carry your dead weight, because nobody can.   For all that information , see next post:  6624  6625

and  - is like the American people setting up their own insurance company, affordable and not welfare, financially saving small businesses and the middle class, is voluntary, and so much more.  This site also gives ways of teaching the biased media and deaf legislators a lesson they won't forget.  They will develop a new respect for the American people. So, get active, or pay, in so many ways, for the rest of your lives.  292
[QUOTE who="my gripes withobama"]<quoted text>Ours is a nation set up to keep the government out of our personal affairs aside from where course of law and preservation of peace and justice is concerned, when the government forces people to purchase something (which by the way is a constitutional issue that will have to play out in courts where already lawsuits are being filed by about a dozen states).when the government takes direct control of almost 1/3 of the nation's economy, then that is reason for concern. It's not the healthcare per se' that is the issue so much as it is CONTROL over healthcare,[/QUOTE]
If you're not fighting him, you're helping him, and it's you that will pay for it. This wouldn't be happening today if the American people had demanded one of the other choices last year, but they didn't know about them because the media is so biased that they deliberately kept that information from them.   So, tell them they've lost you as a customer/viewer because they defrauded you, and they're also to blame for this situation we're in now. Demand one of the plans I posted earlier, and take the advice on the Insurance Corruption site which will force legislators to stop working for the corrupt insurance industry, and profiting from our suffering. Do it this weekend because Obama knows that if he can stall long enough, the American people will get tired or bored and give up. Democrats need to wise up and use the Republican rebellion to help make this happen, by demanding one of the better plans NOW.  325

[QUOTE who="A Nnoyed"]So repeal the prescription drug benefit immediately or raise taxes. Or both. Balls in the looey left court. Fix it. And the new law is deficit increasing legislation. Shell games and leaving out hundreds of billions in costs can only fool the CBO because they're required to be fooled if given faulty cost and revenue numbers. Can't blame them, their hands are tied. Obama's trying his hardest to get us to well over 20 trillion in debt by 2020 with an annual interest only payment of near a trillion. Assuming we keep our AAA rating that keeps our rates lower. You support that. I don't know why but you do. Spend, spend, spend, spend, spend, spend, spend, spend, spend. Just like Bush. And he was an idiot.[/QUOTE]
I never see any of you doing anything but complaining.  You don't have solutions, don't help spread the word about them, and obviously don't even want solutions because then you'd have nothing to complain about.  For those of you who are intelligent, here's a place to start: (next post)  407     And  408
[QUOTE who="theres lotsidont like"]I believe there needs to be reform, but I am very very against this bill. I do not like that they can fine people who still choose to not have health care (or, in extreme cases, those people can face some jail time). I don't like that 16,500 new IRA jobs are being created to do monthly checks on every person to make sure everyone has health insurance(I mean, new jobs but I find it funny that people protested the Patriot Act so much as an obstruction of privacy when they'll now be able to check into this too).I don't like the taxes ; yes yes I know it says only those making $250/yr but people should be well aware that this isn't going to work that way and the middle class will also end up being taxed. I don't like that the majority of the country (in the lastest polls) don't like the healthcare bill and that the government isn't listening to that and just pushing through a bill to make a change . There's lots I don't like.[/QUOTE]
This bill is dangerous to our freedoms.  Just think, the media is sabotaging all other liberal choices, and I just tried to start a thread to Democrats on 3 different forums and it disappeared from all, and many, many times my internet connection is cut.  That doesn't happen anywhere else.  We know most people are against this bill, the thing is, can they stop it?  Do they see the danger?  I have to blame liberals and the idiot masses because Republicans are fighting it.  The people who don't read about it, and actively work against it, will deserve what they get, but they drag us down too.  Read about it - post 407:     413

No, that would be simple-minded, but I'm sure you chose to jump to conclusions (maybe you're used to being ignorant) instead of taking the time to check it out. For those who are willing to do something for their country, and their own financial survival, it's about using good old competition against the insurance companies' organized crime which destroys lives and quality of life.  Normally people like that should be prosecuted, but let's be realistic - they're above the law and none of you are doing anything about that.  This plan is about making money which would go toward the deficit, by using that money which ins. co. executives would give themselves as bonuses, rewards for corruption. So, it attacks many problems at the same time, including: If most Americans can demand this one plan, they would have taken a major step in taking back their country too. We have to work harder because we have to carry A Nnoyed's dead weight.  We have to do it ourselves because the media has buried this information. Help penalize politicians and the media, and so much more at the same time.  If this next post has been deleted, go to US News and search for: Those Opposed to Obama's bill 415

Tea Party is doomed to fail   US News
Republican tea parties have done more damage than good.  We all know Republicans are never going to revolt against the government, so, in their stupidity, they've sabotaged any future efforts to threaten the government, etc., discussed further at intelligent-liberals. com, along with more unbelievable Republican stupidity. 56
[QUOTE who="Stop the madness"]<quoted text> The tea party has done damage, it's true. Damage to the self-serving, single minded politicians in office now. They helped stop the ramming through of govt. controlled health-care. They've made lock-in-step (so-called) representatives think twice. The revolution has already started and it will continue until the citizens of America are in control again. Speaking of stupidity (yours), the tea party is comprised of democrats, republicans, and independents. And, to poster WDRussell (who consistanly TRIES to play a race card) there are, gasp, people of color in the tea party--- unbrainwashed people with guts who are willing to act on behalf of everyone.[/QUOTE]
Did Republicans start a tea party because of the money wasted on death and destruction in Iraq?  Of course not.  How about being forced to finance the corrupt legal system which victimizes us all?  Never.  No, they only became enraged when their money would be used to help STOP DEATH.  There's a legitimate tea party at legal parasites. com but I bet Republicans would run from that.  208
[QUOTE who="Lowell Grant"]Palin HAD an 80% approval rating in Alaska until the people got to know her, its far below 50% now as she abandoned them after fracturing her state. Neither here nor there, she is just a pop phenom like Paris Hilton only not as smart, no substance, just a pretty face with an empty head.  She is not the issue, the "tea baggers" were and the fact is that we have had 30 years of tax cuts during which time "Voodoo" economics has failed to produce the growth in our economy that would wipe out the debt. The one and only time we began to make progress, in Clinton's last year, that was quickly wiped out by 2 more huge, unfunded tax cuts that swelled the defict by another $2 trillion. It is a fact that over 90% of our deficits were run up during republican administrations. Let me dump $11 trillion into the economy without any intention or obligation to pay it back and I too can make many people love me. The lame attempt to blame Barney Frank for all this is laughable. When did he control ANYTHING during the bush administration, even his own committee? He was A MINORITY leader, duh. The republican theme is very consistent..."The buck stops THERE!"[/QUOTE]
Many times we've seen where Republicans are elected president because the media failed to tell the voters that those former governors would never have been re-elected in their own states, due to their incompetence/corruption.  People have to let their media know that they're losing customers because of this -- insurance corruption. com = cancel subscriptions, etc.  212
[QUOTE who="James Henderson"]Sir: With all due respect,Its not they but them.Its both party's. Its the system that creates this mess. I would suggest talking with a honest bureaucrat and ask if its not hard to be honest under the rules that govern them. How can one not look locally and see how the system is used by the ins over the outs. I know you know a honest person just ask her. With its a personnel matter they can hide,lie and cheat with only the citizen speaking up. I clam not to know it all but one thing I do know this was done my both party's and has been going on for a long time.So we debate while the bureaucrats lights the fire.[/QUOTE]
So, stop debating, go to legal parasites. com and DO everything you can to change things.  It will seem too drastic to cowards, but if you're going to take on institutionalized corruption, then yes, you have to fight like you mean it.  Have the courage to join a REAL TEA PARTY.  214
[QUOTE who="Donna Christopher"]Sandra - have you ever thought that race may be a big factor (as in the straw that broke the camel's back)? I know simply asking this question may well result in a)the reposting of past satirical/sardonic comments b)many great bits of snarky and/or personal comments/attacks. Sorry, but as a daughter of the south (with a great, great, great uncle a Captain for the Confederate Army) racism still runs extremely deep. Most of my relatives still reside in West Virginia - let me tell you, they are more p i s s s s s s s e d over melanin totals than debt totals. I watched the tea party protests at the Mall and could count on one hand the number of persons of color I saw (acknowledging that I could only see what the media showed, most of it coming from Fox but not all).
Where was the outrage over off-book spending for two wars (one COMPLETELY unprovoked and now in the aftermath we only kid ourselves that Iraq will hold together)and lack of accounting of monies spent in both - yeah, I'm looking at you pallets of shrink wrapped bundles of hundred dollar bills that disappeared; Medicare part D and the majority of the TARP monies proffered and passed on W's watch? Medicare part D - not only not paid for but there was no allowing the cutting of any kind of deals that would have resulted in savings. Okay, not actual savings but less debt incurred. I am neither R or D - we need to break their stranglehold with 3rd, 4th etc partys.    [/QUOTE]
They'll be just as corrupt.  No, none of those solutions will work.  You have to stand up to the ones in power and control them, then it won't matter who's elected because they'll ALL be accountable.   215  deleted one!
[QUOTE who="Gypsy"]Protester: You seem passionate about your cause; as were Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson, and David Duke. You are off topic, off balance, and likely off your meds. I would hazard a guess that most rational people - Republican, Democrat, or None of the Above - tend to pass you on the street without making eye contact.[/QUOTE]
You're a coward, expecting everybody else to carry your dead weight.  So, in your simple little mind Republicans are moderates who just happen to have started a revolt against the federal government.  You are too dumb to vote, and are part of the reason this country is in a mess now.   216
[QUOTE who="Caffeinated"]<quoted text> Do you understand what the Tea party is about? Probably not since they get so much negative media coverage.     They are loyal Americans who feel that it is more important to vote for a candidate based on honesty, good values, and sound judgment...instead of voting for a party. Think about it...we have had some of the crappiest politicians in office for a very long time. Do you want more of that? Or is it possible to vote for a candidate with integrity? I don't know about you, but I'd rather vote for common sense, than jump on the sheeple train.[/QUOTE]
Voting is your great solution??  That's been the 'solution' for hundreds of years -- when is it going to start working for you? A tea party is a prelude to a revolution - a voting revolution?  You're idiots! If you read my previous post, you'd know that there's a real tea party at legal parasites. com and it's different from the same old stale solutions that never worked before and are not a threat now.  It's about fighting not just political and legal system corruption, but about fighting the stupidity of the masses who support their own demise.  220
[QUOTE who="Caffeinated"]<quoted text> is my solution. We need a third party who truly represents the people. The Tea party does NOT prelude a revolution. I hate that word, because it sounds like guns-a-blazing. We don't need more chaos in this world. We need a thoughtful process, honesty, and good decision making. Specifically what is "your" solution?[/QUOTE]
A third party is just more of the same, eventually.  The American people have to stop trying to get away with doing as little as possible - it's clearly not working - go to legal parasites. Com   224
The Tea Party is doomed to fail because Republicans are turning the rest of the country against them instead of trying to compromise and work with the rest of the people who are also against THAT PLAN. It will take a tremendous amount of energy because the media wants to sensationalize the fight rather than give Americans the fact that they have other choices.  Here are two:  238
