Here's another opportunity to improve your ability to read and comprehend the written English language.
"You are an idiot" identifies one specific person, "you" being singular. Because that sentence was separated from the previous paragraph by a paragraph break, and there was no link between the two paragraphs, the sentence is not related to the previous paragraph in context.
You're an idiot.
If Obama's father was white, and his mother was black, and he supported the Constitution, would he be white?

Republican politicians began backtracking on their support of Nevada anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy after the New York Times caught Bundy making racially-inflammatory remarks blaming African-Americans for willingly submiting to dependency on federal assistance.
“They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton,” Bundy was quoted as saying to a group of supporters last Saturday.“And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
Bundy’s statements about “the Negro,” published on Wednesday, were made during his daily speech to supporters outside Bunkerville, Nevada, where a crowd gathered to support him in defiance of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) during an attempted round up of his cattle. The confrontation was the result of Bundy’s refusal to pay grazing fees on federally-owned land for more than 20 years, in spite of multiple court rulings against him. Bundy has stated on several occasions that he does not recognize the existence of the federal government.
During the speech, Bundy said he remembered driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, which he called a “government house” with “always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch” with nothing to do.
The remarks brought about a quick rebuke from Chandler Smith, a spokesperson for Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Heller had previously called Bundy and his supporters “patriots” for their actions and challenged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) description of them as “domestic terrorists.”
Smith told the Times that Heller “completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.”
Bundy’s speech also seemingly derailed Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s (R) apparent attempt to link his gubernatorial campaign to the Bunkerville camp; Abbott had allegedly written a letter to the BLM accusing it of “threatening” to seize land along the Red River in northern Texas.
But after being contacted regarding the rancher’s “Negro” remarks, a spokesperson for Abbott was quoted as saying that Abbott’s letter “was regarding a dispute in Texas and is in no way related to the dispute in Nevada.”

i wonder if a republican who doesn't support racism is a RINO?
we're getting ready to find out.
I'm sure Replublicans everywhere are cheering Bundy's statements behind closed doors. I see no difference in what he said and what Rethugs on this thread have been saying for years. It's who they are.

Dave,

I saw this question posted and I was wondering if you had any comments about it.

Man made global warming is based on correlation. A basic principle of science is that correlation does not prove causation.

"Real scientists would demand to know the physics of how increased CO2 in the atmosphere causes global warming. Is there any real physics behind this unsupported bold assertion?"

part of the reason that medical costs are so high is because of people who don't pay their bills.......
time is money.......
other people are paying for you.....
No one is paying anything for me. And I will thank you to stop misjudging me. Every one of my medical bills are paid on time and in a timely manner until paid off.

But perhaps I should be thankful my deductible was only in the three digits and not $2000 or $3000 like it is for many others.

You're starting to sound more like an elitist. And a snobby one at that.

But you're absolutely right about medical costs being higher because too many don't pay their bills. However, being forced to fork over thousands of dollars before receiving care for those who do pay their bills is not only unfair because millions more will receive free health care at their expense under ObamaCare but it's going to cost paying patients even more.

Does fairness fit anywhere into your apparent elitism?

maybe you should ask one of the FOXbots seeing as how they own him.
You are parsing the issue. Your justification rests with what you interpret to be public opinion, which is manipulated. Let's stay with the facts. The fact is:

He didn't say "good". He speculated as to whether the black population would be "better off" having daily work than being idle slaves on the government plantation.
All that is necessary is to get up every morning and get to work on time every day. Then, the entire world will change for them.
What's so difficult about doing that?
Or, that would be violating some cultural norm?

Aren't you the idiot that keeps saying Ronal Reagan raised taxes? I don't recall the Constitution giving the President the authority to raise taxes. You must be complaining about the Democrat-controlled Congress raising taxes... if that really happened.
Here's a link where you can get the facts on that:

Reagan economic adviser....

Over the next few years, Reagan came under the influence of Rep. Jack Kemp (R-NY), Wall Street Journal editorial writer Jude Wanniski, economist Arthur Laffer and other proponents of “supply-side economics.” While skeptical at first, in 1979 Reagan endorsed the Kemp-Roth tax bill, which would have cut statutory income tax rates by about 30 percent across the board. After winning the White House in 1980, Reagan sent the Kemp-Roth proposal to Congress and it was enacted in August 1981.

Almost immediately upon enactment of the 1981 tax cut, Reagan came under enormous pressure to do something about the federal budget deficit. While his preferred approach was to cut spending as much as necessary, it was not politically possible to so. His aides began pressuring him to support a tax increase. Conservative activists were appalled that Reagan would even consider such a thing, but he eventually endorsed the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982. According to a Treasury Department analysis, it raised taxes by close to one percent of GDP, equivalent to $150 billion per year today, and was probably the largest peacetime tax increase in American history.

This was just the first of many tax increases that President Reagan endorsed and signed into law. There were 11 major tax increases during his administration.

There's no one on the planet who wants affordable and available health care for every single person in this country more than me. I hated the health care system before but what we have now is worse.
ObamaCare is government intrusion into our most private personal lives. It is social engineering. It is designed to lead to single payer and politically motivated by the few to expand power to an even bigger government overseen by the few and implemented by an autonomous and very powerful IRS.
It will not improve health care. Receiving health care will now become more timely and inefficient. We were promised more affordable health care for everyone. Even you must know by now that was a lie. Many will be paying more for this second-rate care.
You simply can't accept there were other ways to achieve a much more common sense and do-able goal which both of us - as well as the majority of Americans - desired without big government looking over our doctors' shoulders and making decisions about our health.
How could anyone possibly think that was the better solution?
You would be thrilled with a universal single payer system. Everyone would.

Here are six conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized .

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

That pretty much sums up the USA in the Age of Morons, Mooches, Marxists, and Muslims.
