Without BushCo's moronic unfunded part D and the many other bullshyt (R) tweaks, Medicare would be just fine.

Flacko, your thought process betrays you at every turn__fat scooters, inflatable back braces, stair lifts and in home construction projects should not be offered/funded through MediCare except in very rare circumstances.

And your "in the red" figure demonstrates your willingness to buy into stupid.

<quoted text>yeap your another that wants to throw out the English Language and replace the english language with Ebonics: The True Language of Black Folks in the public schools I see Jethro.
Ebonics (a blend of the words ebony and phonics) is a term that was originally intended to refer to the language of all people descended from enslaved Black Africans, particularly in West Africa, the Caribbean, and North America. Since the 1996 controversy over its use by the Oakland School Board, the term Ebonics has primarily been used to refer to African American Vernacular English (AAVE), a dialect distinctively different from Standard American English.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebonics
Ebonics should replace English to demonstrate that we are a repentant society for the abuses of slavery.

Bush was trying to beat the Democrats to the punch with the drug program. But Republicans don't know how to claim credit for being Santa Claus.

Feel free to actually prove something I wrote to be a lie.
Me pointing out your protection of the use of racial slurs is not being a bigot.
I pay for my cell hone. Did you have a Bush phone? A Clinton phone,a Bush Sr phone or a Reagan hone? Of course, you dumbass right whiners do know that these phones were in existence prior to Obama, Right? Of course not, because you are too stupid.
Just paid my Federal Income tax. Both Corporate & Personal.
No food stamps either.
All that does make you a liar.

Your shitis getting hot. As "nutsucker" would say I am loving it. You can not point out a single case where I have supported racism. On occasion I have pointed out racism from folks I agree with on many issues. The only issue I agree with you on is that you are a racist and a liar. Your world is all black and white, black is good, white is bad. Live with it hypocrite.

Mental illness is a wonderful thing!

Keep on trucking!

If we are lucky, Obama will hit $25 trillion in debt before he leaves office. That is, if he ever does.

But it's all for a good cause, the destruction of the decadent American society.

Cellphones. You GD idiot. These are not something Obama started or the government pays for. This is an example of just how uninformed you are.
Maybe Obama could use the Bush method to lower the price of gasoline - kill the economy & thereby kill demand.
You Right whiners get dumber every GD day of your worthless miserable lives.

You are predictable.
Blame Bush. It is all you have.

True and in the 1970s, California was the U.S. state with the most generous welfare system and why today in Californa its so bad and why California has a large Welfare Society and alot of them migrated to California for that purpose only years ago when the Great Society Programs were being implemented.

Then why did Holder defend Obama having the authority at his own discretion to use drones in this country against "suspected terrorists"?
It confirms many people's concerns that this president says one thing and does another. If he insists on trying all terrorists in American courts, why would he want autonomous authority to use drones on American soil against "suspected" terrorists?
When it comes to life and death, he simply can't be trusted. Not this president who detests any and all opposition to his personal ideology and personal vision for this country.
You can see why having sole authority to use drones against "suspected enemies" would make a few people a little nervous.
Holder screwed up by responding to a question that was posed as a hypothetical without thinking about the overblown reaction from the 'we live for hypothetical situations'/FOXbot crowd.

so until floriduh gets blown up by a drone, no worries.

True its just like how the Democrats beat the Republicans by implementing the Conservative Hertiage Foundation's 1989 "Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans" by Stuart M. Butler, Ph.D which is nothing more than retitled as Obamacare or The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and now the the Right screaming foul and against it.

Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans

The drone issue is creating some unusual political alliances.

John Yoo -- the George W. Bush administration lawyer who authored legal memos for the war on terror, including enhanced interrogation techniques -- is defending President Obama on the use of armed drones, in the face of criticism from libertarian Rand Paul.

"I admire libertarians, but I think Rand Paul's filibuster in many ways is very much what libertarians do -- they make these very symbolic gestures, standing for some extreme position," Yoo said on a conference call sponsored by the Federalist Society.

Yoo, a University of California-Berkeley law professor, has criticized the Obama administration on other issues but said of drone strikes: "If an American joins an enemy with which we are at war, he is or she is a valid target as an enemy combatant. That's been the rule throughout our history."

Once again Carol you prove what a clueless twit and liar you are. Those of us on the left don't have any hatred for those who achieve success, it's how you do it that makes the difference . A high school friend of mine came up with an idea for a product and started making it in his parents' garage and steadily expanded, hiring workers and when he sold the business became a very rich man. You may have heard about it, Yankee Candle which employs thousands of workers in its manufacturing facility and its retail outlets across the country and in Europe. Do I begrudge him his success? Absolutely not, he provided employment not only with his company but with other companies that sprung up in competition.
Someone like Mitt Romney however made his money taking over companies, loading them with debt, raiding employee pensions , laying people off and shipping jobs overseas.
Your assertion that those on the left are devoid of religious belief is also totally false. Most of the people I go to church with are liberals. My son is an unabashed liberal and even when he's away at college he gets on the Metro on Sunday to attend services at St. John's on Lafayette Park or goes to a Catholic service on the CUA campus.
Your "societal standards" are code for people like you wanting to force your religious bigotry on others.
Jimmy is a mealy mouthed punk who simply parrots every other ignorant right winger on this topic.
From the amount of judgeit's you got from the waxman i'd say that cut to the bone! Good post!

All invsestors spend their own money in an effort to try and save foundering businesses. Did I just write that? Oh my goosness, sometimes I make myself laugh! I know, I know, investors don't actually "save" anything they just keep their eye on the ball and look for profitable opportunities.

Recently my husband and I were offered a chance to get in early on a tip by a family friend. He told us that Pfizer Chemical had developed a drug which would make teenagers invisible and had the potential to make liberals disappear completely.

Well, I don't have to tell you we jumped in with both feet! This is the breakthrough we've been waiting for, people! We tried it out on the Domino's Pizza boy and avoided a tip entirely. Then we tuned the television to Letterman, pushed the button twice, and poof! There was Jay Leno interviewing Ted Nugent!

We bought 1,000 shares (ugh! dirty word!) at 27.12 and already they're up to 28.18. Keep your fingers crossed for us, and please pray for our safe return.

The only problem we've found over the last few days is that you have to take more and more of the drug for it to keep working, however, our sponsor at the Church of Christ in Business has been very good about keeping us supplied.. At this rate I'm confident that we won't even know liberals existed in another few weeks.
