Please make this correction and then reassess your conclusions.
Your conclusions have been proved on numerous occasions to be pure bull crap.

Since the link that Waxman provided is dead there's no way to prove whether or not his figures are either accurate or where they came from but of course you'll accept anything that feeds your inner sociopath.
By the way, when are you going to answer my questions?

Swearing gives a bad impression about you PDUPONT.

It makes you unpleasant to be with or around, reflects ignorance, a tool for you whiners and complainers with a bad attitude who don't have control...

Swearing turns your discussions into arguments, a sign of deranged hostility and leads to violence PDUPONT...

You do lack imagination and education PDUPONT, using your lazy language you can't communicate clearly and it discloses your lack of character...

Someone said on The Five yesterday that Congress is going on a week's vacation for an extended Memorial Day weekend.
My heart dropped into my stomach when they said "when there's a scandal during these long breaks, they can either build up or disappear."
If this major scandal which has turned America on its ear and threatens to implicate the highest levels of government of impeachable offenses - including democrats - "disappears" simply because Congress goes on a nice little vacation, something is very, very wrong with us.
Yeah Carol, and who determines the House Schedule? Well that would be the GOP majority.
Besides, these " scandals" that you right wing nitwits have your panties in a twist about are turning out to be a whole lot of nothing.

Swearing and Brain Damage

A wide variety of neurological and emotional conditions can affect a person's ability to speak and lead to excessive swearing PDUPONT. For example, people with various forms of aphasia lose the ability to speak or to pronounce words because of damage or disease in parts of the brain that govern language.

Many aphasics PDUPONT retain the ability to produce automatic speech, which often consists of conversational placeholders like "um" and "er." Aphasics' automatic speech can include swear words -- in some cases, patients can't create words or sentences, but they can swear. Also, the ability to pronounce other words can change and evolve during recovery, while pronunciation and use of swearwords remains unchanged.

HEY STUPID! Greece's problems don't have anything to do with any kind of "socialist policies" but from the fact that they were suckered into joining the Euro zone and in the process lost control of their currency. Other countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark all of which nitwits like you would describe as "socialistic" didn't buy into that scam and are doing just fine.
By the way moron the Obama phones that right wingers love to trot out is actually a 28 year old program called Lifeline that was signed into law by Ronald Reagan and renewed by George HW Bush.
You're an idiot Waxman!
Baaawwaaahhhh!!!!

The Euro is not a political system. God are you a moron.

"A short documentary “Rampant INjustice Exposes Federal Abuse of Power” was released late last night by Jan Morgan of JanMorganMedia shows that between 2009 and 2011, the blatant trampling of the Constitutional rights of Americans during white collar crime investigations by the Department of Justice and the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service, increased substantially, under the Obama administration.During that period, IRS audits against small businessesincreased 32%.Among hundreds of businesses raided by the IRS and Department of Justice, using paramilitary tactics, the documentary profiles such known companies as Mountain Pure Water Bottling Company and Duncan Outdoors, Inc., both situated in Arkansas and Gibson Guitar located in Tennessee."
Interesting considering what we know now.


Gibson Guitars admitted that they were wrong.

Why do you right whiners support businesses that break the law &pollute the environment & cheat on their taxes?

Worse yet, the climate change alarmists have no practical solutions other than to move toward a Third World standard of living.
Not true.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions will lessen the effects and prevent it from being catastrophic.

Higher CAFE standards. Solar panels, geothermal HVAC, Replacing coal with natural gas, Cap & Trade, et etc

These are all solutions.


Ignoring global warming, pollution of our air & water, these things will lead us o being a third world country.

More vague charges meant to drum up mass hysteria for a political cause. Get specific. And I'm not talking about computer models written by screaming Leftist academicians but cold, hard facts.
Good luck. There are none regarding anthropic-induced warming. Only speculation, theory and political pandering. A major problem with herd mentality is the occasional stampede that takes the entire herd over a cliff. Enjoy yourself, dood, but I'm not willing to become ground beef amidst a bunch of clueless cows.
Your buddy Flacktard posted an article talking about how alarmingly fast the planet has warmed since the start of the Industrial Revolution. Cold hard facts.

The past decade has been the warmest on record.

The modeling takes what has been happening & predicts what the results will be if we continue to pump pollutants & greenhouse gases into our atmosphere.

The vast majority of climatologists agree that we have man made global warming.

Obama's speech today was longer than his State of the Union Address and he didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.
It was a strategy to keep Americans distracted and from talking about all the scandals this Memorial weekend.
It's not about the drones. It's about the deafening silence coming from the left and the liberal media about the drones.
Drones Smones.

Before drones there were scuds

Before scuds there were helicopters strike teams

Before that there were snipers.

All employed to take out threats in foreign lands.

We on the let understand this.

You on the right are being so ridiculous & political on this issue to the point you defend Americans who take up arms against our own county. & that is really pathetic.

So I'll ask again.
If you were in the business of cutting costs, a.k.a. Obamacare, would you pay someone to offer "advice" on increasing the costs, a.k.a. end-of-life decisions?
Oh, "hi" rhesus monkey. Are you ready for that squatnutt yet? I just had Mexican food, and it be a percolatin jes fo you.....:-)

Not benefits. Not affording expensive treatments and procedures by paying physicians to advise end-of-life decisions and/or hospice instead.
Should that be the government's role?
Should health care be the government's/IRS's role?
The government is so overbloated now it's out of control already.
It is the role of the doctor.

The doctor is taking his time to give a patient their opinion options. This conversation is initiated by the patient & not the doctor.

Obamacare says the doctor can get paid for his time. What is wrong with that? Do you work for nothing.

It has nothing to do with the IRS.

My father-in-law had been diagnosed with prostrate cancer. He has severe emphysema. The doctor told him the best approach as to ignore the cancer because the emphysema wold kill him first. He said this not to cut costs but save patient anguish. My mother-in-law insisted he have surgery for the prostate cancer, he did, it weakened him & damaged his overall health & he died shortly thereafter. Advice not to save money.

Just because Medicare will pay the doctor for giving advice does not mean his advice has a cost savings tilt.
