<quoted text>The Repubs in Congress voted 2 years ago under the Paul Ryan Plan to get rid of Medicare and make it a private system. Medicare would have no problems if it were the universal health care plan for every American based on income. But no way would Repubs ever let that happen when millions can be paid to insurance CEOs for being a middleman.
You Repubs are hypocrites. You bitch about the government ObamaCare plan but turn 65 you all sign up for government ran health care. A lot of VETS bitch about ObamaCare but walk into a VA when they need health care. Why don't you all stand up against this Socialism you hate and pay for your own health needs??????????
Many countries provide universal insurance but deny critical procedures to patients who need them. Britainís Department of Health reported in 2006 that at any given time, nearly 900,000 Britons are waiting for admission to National Health Service hospitals, and shortages force the cancellation of more than 50,000 operations each year.

The problem with universal health care is free isn't free.

Liberals continue to ignore the pink elephant - the cost of health care and how to reduce those costs.

Safety nets need repair. No one wants to do away with them.

At least you admit Obama is following in Bush's footsteps when it comes to war strategies and foreign policy.
But Iraq is no longer an issue and the media rarely reports any news on Obama's wars. That's the difference.

And cons cry about those because they fell behind the times!
Bitch and Moaners cons are!
Well, you got one out of three right anyway.

Obama has definitely accelerated the use of the teleprompter.

But his campaign was fined the most under any president recently for not filing 1200 contributions.

And his "internet" and "grassroots" campaigning is bogus. He took scads of money from corporations.

The only "fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day" is Obama being the president of it.
Republicans can shut down the government and cut off Veterans Checks and Social Security checks.

<quoted text>Drones are a good thing when compared to the alternatives. Additionally the vast majority of drone flights are simply for the purpose of gathering intel.
Carol's distaste for drones is puzzling imo. Perhaps she would prefer F-116 A's or A-10's rolling hot on target and inevitably leading to US POW's.
What's even more puzzling is liberals and pseudoliberals seemingly having no problem with them even though they're creating more animosity and resentment towards the U.S.

Here's an execise in perspective: Picture GW Bush being in Obama's shoes right now.

Well, so did Romney. And still got his butt kicked.

Funny thing is corporations don't vote. But cons like to ignore the people. They make a grand entrance of "here I am!" and get disappointed when no one applauds them! And then they wonder why!

Suffice it to say that whatever President Obama does successfully or otherwise will be opposed by the Carols et al.
I don't know a lot about drones, but they seem to be an amazing tool and take the place of thousands of ground troops and American casualties; so, I trust the Presidents use of them.
They are basically big remote controlled airplanes. They can be armed with bombs, missiles, tazars, and other munitions.

All I picture when reading your posts is despair on a level requiring treatment.
