This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy.
I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. Then, I brushed my teeth with that water, filtered to standards set by the EPA and my state.
After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.
At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank and printed by the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.
I park my car on the street, paved and maintained by the Department of Transportation, and put quarters issued by the United States Mint into the parking meter.
Then, after spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, I drive back to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and the fire marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.
I then log onto the Internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on freerepublic and fox news forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right. Keep government out of my Medicare!
Please explain why private companies couldn't achieve the same if not better service? and cheaper.

BTW the federal reserve is not a branch of the federal government.

So why are these manufactures fleeing the country to avoid the tax for goods sold here? Both domestic & imported are taxed.
Kind of makes your argument rather stupid.
What's my argument , stupid fck.

" WASHINGTON – In a letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last week, 18 Democratic senators and senators-elect requested a delay in the medical device tax, a 2.3 percent tax that is slated to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2013 as part of the Affordable Care Act.

Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Kay R. Hagan (D-N.C.) authored the letter to express concern over the negative impact the tax could potentially have on the medical device industry and the U.S. economy as a whole. The letter was signed by 16 of their Democratic colleagues, including John Kerry (D-Mass.), Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.)."

And I "altered" your post again. Too much ranting at the beginning.
Lahk ah sayd? How about "as I said?" Don't you agree that it takes the dirt road sting off your posts?

Forced union membership should not be a job requirement, given that it has absolutely no relationship to your experience, skills, or qualifications. It's about the same as requiring an employee to be white, or a Christian.

There's no Fool like an Old Fool. America needs new blood. Look at those two old mules talking ol' times "...from Eleanore Roosevelt to ....the Jerk-In-Chief...blah, blah, blah"

Let them die along with Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Hugo the Hippo, Mao Tse Tung, Khrushchev,... and let's let's move on to a brighter world. The Boy Messiah is a throwback doing a reprise at a strip joint and his naked stupidity will become his legacy, too.

BTW, Little suzzie rice sees the writing on the sh*thouse wall.

WP - Susan Rice withdraws name from consideration for secretary of state: http://tinyurl.com/d5592k7

Her sh*t has been floating to the surface lately and she - along with the Jerk-In-Chief - is afraid that more will surface. Too embarrassing for the Boy Messiah to handle.

Link it up.

Two hours pay per month should equate to about $400 per year tops.

A sick world: We live longer, with more pain and illness
LONDON (Reuters)- The world has made huge progress fighting killer infectious diseases, but as a result we now lead longer and sicker lives, with health problems that cause us years of pain, disability and mental distress.
This "devastating irony", as researchers describe it, is the main conclusion of a five-year study that forms the most comprehensive assessment of global health in the history of medicine, according to the journal publishing the research.
The Global Burden of Disease study, led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at Washington University, finds that countries face a wave of financial and social costs from rising numbers of people living with disease and injury.
Among other findings are that while malnutrition has dropped down the rankings as a cause of death and illness, the effects of excessive eating are taking its place. Smoking and alcohol use have also overtaken child hunger to become the second and third leading health risks, behind high blood pressure.
Over three million deaths globally were attributable in 2010 to excess body weight, more than three times as many as malnutrition.
"We've gone from a world 20 years ago where people weren't getting enough to eat to a world now where too much food and unhealthy food - even in developing countries - is making us sick," said Majid Ezzati of Imperial College London, one of the lead researchers.
However, the major health problems now are diseases and conditions that don't kill, but make us ill. We now live longer with more health problems that cause pain, impair mobility, and prevent us seeing, hearing and thinking clearly.
"Very few people are walking around with perfect health, and as people age, they accumulate health conditions," said Christopher Murray, the IHME's director. "This means we should recalibrate what life will be like for us in our 70s and 80s. It also has profound implications for health systems as they set priorities."
The study, as the largest systematic effort to quantify world health levels and trends, involved more than 480 researchers from 302 institutions and 50 countries. It was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and published as seven papers in The Lancet medical journal on Thursday.
----------
This goes a long way towards explaining why the Teabaggers are so mean and full of hatred.
They're old, infirm, and in pain.
Where's Huxley when we need him??
Very soon now, you'll be turned into Soylent Green.
