I was listening to all of this on talk radio and I couldn't believe this is what's going to be facing people. One lady said, she'll have to foreclose on her house to pay her bills. Several people said, that Obama isn't looking out for the elderly, that he just wants them to die. Now that breaks my heart! I just feel sorry for the elderly and my heart really goes out to them, because some are panicking already and getting so worried. It's not good for there health to deal with this uncertainty.
Nascar, I am not a fan of the road course races. The short tracks are OK, but sometimes to slow for me to watch. I like action and speed or speed and action .
All of talk radio is right wing conservative zealots. Don't believe everything you hear on that media. They will tell you anything to make you hate Obama. Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage...all nut jobs.

Then you must be a "Dega" or Daytona fan?!?!? Those are Dale, Jr's best tracks and every track is JJ's best track.

Ok guys, I have found me a fellow, redneck racing buddy. You all will have to get used to it, but there's one question that REALLY matters--Spoon, who is your favorite basketball team??? This could win or lose you friends, just kidding, maybe.

I don't listen to talk radio and I still don't like Obama. Arnold, if you like to listen to a nice christian radio station that has talk radio and it's not about politics, K-LOVE. They have really good music too.

My mother is disabled, the only thing that medicaid does for her is it pays her medicare premium. She has been treated for throat cancer, never drank or smoked in her life. She has had two major back surgeries for slipped discs. In 2011, July had her left knee replaced, November, her right knee replaced. In Feb. 2012 she went for a check up, they found stage one cancer in her left breast. In March of 2012 she had a bi-lateral mastectomy. She draws my dad's social security because she has never worked a public job in her life. Her life was spent on the farm, in the tobacco and corn fields. She had five children, four of which grew up to be law abiding, tax paying citizens. She declined any other help and that includes foodstamps. Had she accecpted foodstamps she would get $16.00 a month.

Pro, it was crazy, after a while their insanity became my reality and that's scary. Just think, these are the "leaders of tomorrow".

Speaking of govt education, looks like "everybody needing to go to college and let's throw money at them so we can have the best and brightest is not working. I can't remember the amount I read about today, but I've figured out a college degree does not make you a good steward of your money. Do these college kids think these loans that where thrown at them didn't need to be paid back? Hello, now the government is cracking down big time on them and I think they should. All the while, we're footing the bill for the low interest college loans and having to pay collection agencies to collect the money from these people that don't understand a loan is what it states it is "a loan", not a gift, not a winning lottery ticket, but money you OWE to whom you borrowed it from.

I heard that. My brother was born with multiple disabilities and he qualified for $10 a month in food stamps and I told them to keep them, apparently they needed them worse than he did. He has always lived with my dad and draws disability but because they use my dad's income etc my brother does not qualify for Medicaid and he's had 5 or 6 strokes now since 12/11. Even if he didn't get any type of money, we'd make do and pay his bills, but sometimes it doesn't seem fair for those that need it can't get it and those that abuse the system get everything.

You know bacon seems to me, just an observation, that Arnold is upset about negative comments regarding Obama.I will say this.Beck, Rush are incredible halfwits, who earn their money with sensationalistic and highly negative comments regarding Obama.I would advise that people listen to sane commentators, both pro and con , regarding Obama.Honest criticism is hard to find these days, from democrats and republicans.OBAMA won't be president forever, people need to know who they will support in 2016, both conservatives and liberals.

I would advise more people to educate themselves and listen less. That's what's wrong with the youth today. No one is being taught critical thinking. Todays youth are not making decisions for themselves. They are being given pre-selected choices. I hire people all the time and I can assure you today's 20 something generation can be scary.

TEW, while dealing with "our future leaders" today, this was even scarier. I called my dad's oncologist to inquire out some test results that are five days late returning. I could tell the young lady that answered the phone was indeed young. I told her my reason for calling, asked if the results were in and this is what she said, "No they're not back yet, would you like to hold have the doctor to speak to you and explain the results." Lord knows I had to bite my tongue. I said "Maybe I misunderstood, did you say the test results had not returned?", she "yes". Finally, I said "honey, how is the doctor going to explain test results he doesn't have?"
TEW, forget being taught "critical" thinking, they're not even being taught to think.
I wondered later this evening what were the odds I would get this many young people in a day's time, that were this clueless, that deal with our money, property and health

We live in the Land of the Lost.Reading is officially a lost art.Since reading comprehension is so vital, the ability to comprehend what is said is also being watered down.Linear thought becomes merely an amorphous concept.People no longer accumulate facts for their opinions, instead they form opinions, and cherry pick "facts"to back up their opinions.disregarding any inconvenient information contrary to their"beliefs", substituting raw emotion for clear thinking.

My mother, who was very bright, was jerked out of school at age ten, to work the tobacco fields.For her, this was a bitter pill to swallow, she had been an excellent student, her dreams of an academic future were destroyed, in order to live the life of a poverty stricken sharecropper.

And if the Insurance Companies would have had a little more concern for their clients who paid their hard earned money to them, they may not have found themselves in this situation. Pre-existing conditions was a great downfall for them in health insurance, and many people lost their homes and property due to this. Should we have let them continue on?
The easy solution would have been torrent reform and to allow insurance companies to sell across state lines. This would've capped the frivolous lawsuits brought forth by the slick haired lawyers (John Edwards) and would've increased competition, thus lowering the cost, but neither of these great ideas would've allowed the govt to take over and create a new revenue stream! I ask, when has the govt EVER taken over anything and produced a better outcome than was being produced before they confiscated it? Never! Why should Americans expect a different outcome now?
Pre existing conditions? I ask you, if you had no car insurance and you had a wreck, should you be allowed to run and purchase insurance real quick before you reported the accident? What's the difference?
Currently, by law, if you have insurance and a "condition" and for some reason you lose your insurance, you legally have 30 days to acquire new insurance and they HAVE to accept your "condition", If you wait 31 days, legally they don't. The problem with most lies within a lack of self responsibility (and knowing the law), they wait on someone else to take care of things for them. Also, if someone loses insurance, why in the hell would they purchase COBRA? You can get a policy through a regular insurance company at a cheaper rate than COBRA any day of the week and twice on Sunday....the trick is to do it within 30 days.

Also, if Obamacare is so great, why did Congress excuse themselves from partaking in the program?

Because even they know when a dog shits in the yard, no matter how much cherry syrup you pour on it, you still have a big, fresh, steamy, not too hard, not too soft, pile of crap.

Unfortunately, the democrats and liberals were able to convince the rest of their constituents that the cherry syrup was a good idea. So the rest of ya'll will have to take a bite.

Enjoy, my wife and I will be watching from afar as we make more money, buying seven's company out and terminating his employment.
