<quoted text>Maybe, if...the past three presidents (including Obama) had re-appropriated the annual Social Security surplus for Medicare expenses instead of Defense we would be experiencing the higher "happiness index" that is the United Nations goal for the citizens of the world. Maybe. There would certainly be a lot less dead Americans, young AND old.
Your Obama belongs to a death cult.
He's my President despite not voting for him.

<quoted text>Medicare is not a handout. People who qualify for it have already paid for it. I believe the original comments were about crappy Medicare coverage.
Medicare is a tax to provide care for current beneficiaries, and guarantees nothing in the way of future treatment for the taxpayer.

Seems pretty clear on this subject.

The photos look more like dragging a corpse than carrying a live person.
The event occurred months ago, there are no surprises left to be discovered by the likes of you or your gal pal Carol. The official cause of death was asphyxiation (smoke inhalation). His body was collected at the hospital by CIA employees and evacuated on the same aircraft as the other deceased, the wounded and plus or minus 30 others.

Mr. Hyde clearly does not understand the difference between the deficit and the debt.

There is no reason why the deficit cannot be eliminated immediately.

Sometimes I'd give a testicle for a smoked whitefish salad sandwich. Unheard of in the wilds of Chattanooga.

Meanwhile, Kunitz just scored a hat trick against Washington. You a Penguin guy or a Flyers guy?

I see this has all spun hopelessly out of control again. Not that I want to be IN control or anything... love the Dylan, incidentally... anyways, here's the thing: the country, maybe the world, is completely broken. The concept that there are "winners" and "losers" in life is ridiculous given the outcome.

It would be lovely to just put the brakes on and call for a fresh start, wouldn't it? And what's standing in the way of this enticing prospect? You're right, a bunch of assholes. A bunch of assholes who think what they "have" defines who they "are." Not only that but the more shit you have the more power you have over what others can say or do. It's totally remarkable! A guy like me wants nothing from you, nothing at all, but you want me to cede my power to you. Where do you come up with this shit?

Look, here's a story...

The other day I was in a Starbuck's gagging on the ridiculous shit they call coffee and dunking a lemon snoozle bar in the odious black muck when I overheard a group of young people talking at the next table. I tried hard not to listen but my hearing aid was positioned in just the right spot so that I could clearly hear every word.

"My portfolio is literally bursting with cash and Buffy and I are taking the kids to St. Barts for a few weeks. What say you guys fly down with us?" That sounds good, Bob, let me check with my broker and make sure we can afford it. I would've said fine but, you know, the ski house in Aspen is now worth half of what it once was..." "Sure, Bill, just let me know by Thursday and I'll set it. Say, June, how do you feel about this Obamacare thing? Sounds alright to me but I'm just not completely convinced..." "I know what you mean, Bob, I'm a little uncertain too. I would've been a lot happier if they'd just passed Hillary's health care bill and instituted single payer insurance, but, there's still time I guess..." "I know what you mean, dear, me too. But when you remember the insurance and health care industries account for nearly 30% of the American economy it's not hard to see why she ruffled so many feathers. It must've seemed to them like the end of the world was coming."

I chuckled to myself to hear them talking so cavalierly about the end of the world beginning with economic chaos, much like it says in the Gospel of Donald, Ch. 43: 69. I slid my chair back a little so I could hear better and planned what I'd say when I finally turned around and confronted them.

"What about this gun nonsense, June, how do you stand on that?" Well, Bill, they should just confiscate them all and be done with it. It'd take some time and there'd be a lot of grumbling but do we really want people walking around in our schools with guns? I think it's a recipe for disaster myself.." "England's really cracking down now and, finally, gun crimes are begin to disappear. They started their big push in 2005 so the whole thing didn't take too long and there didn't seem to be a revolution about it." "I miss the house in England... oh well, anybody want another latte'?"

I turned around to speak to the three remaining young people at the table and immediately noticed they were all studying their laptops while sipping "coffee." On Bill's vacant machine I read... "

"Former Navy SEAL and bestselling author Chris Kyle was shot and killed on Saturday at a gun range in Texas.

Kyle, known as America's Deadliest Sniper, would sometimes take fellow veterans with PTSD out shooting as a way to help them get over the trauma of combat. That's exactly what he did on Saturday. He and a friend, Chad Littlefield, went to the gun range with Eddie Ray Routh, a vet struggling with PTSD. For unknown reasons Routh turned on his companions, shooting and killing both of them.

Routh fled the scene but was later arrested on two counts of capital murder.

Since retiring from the military, Kyle "devoted his life...to helping fellow soldiers overcome post-traumatic stress," the NYTimes reports. "Chris died doing what he filled his heart with passion - serving soldiers struggling with the fight to overcome PTSD," said his friend Travis Cox said in a statement.

Kyle is famous for his bestselling book American Sniper and is known as "America's deadliest sniper" for killing over 150 Iraqi insurgents. "

Life imitates art, apparently. More often in texas than anyplace else I remember thinking.

“Amor patriae.”

The military is a tool, it's implementation is directed by Congress and, to a degree, the President. The government is key to what the military does - unless there's a military coup.

It is clear but you're wasting your time trying to sell me on a Party I'm already a dues paying member of. You've never seen me advocate gun registration as a solution for gun violence. Your assignment was to sell mdbuilder on the idea of a purely defensive military.

I awoke some hours later at the police station in a cell. By piecing fragments of memory together I realized what must have happened. When "Bill" got up from the table and I turned around and noticed the story on the laptop screen, "June" had seen me staring at the machine and assumed I intended to steal it, so she tazed me with a nice upwards shot under the table. Good God my balls hurt, thank God for the colostomy bag.

I watched the entire video and maintain that even if they are "cheering" (which I still don't think you can conclusively state) there's no telling what they're cheering about within the context of the video. Somebody just told you what they were "cheering" about and that became your reality. This is your standard response to manipulation.

I agree, no reason beyond the political price that would be paid doing it. That's why it won't get done with our two party system. Heck, your side refuses to even acknowledge four years of surpluses under Clinton.
