Come on people, you can't be this stupid. Or maybe you can, so pick up a newspaper once in a while. If your phone is on, it is pinging cell towers (no gps required). Hopefully I just prevented Homer from doing something stupid.

What is this? The third or fourth time today you made this moronic comment to various posters here?
This is the brilliance Homer appreciates.

The Media That Bashes Obama Today Ignores Their Own Complicity In Bush’s Crimes
A double standard takes the form of an instance in which certain practices are perceived as conventional when applied by one group, but are considered forbidden when applied by another group making them morally unfair applications of the principle that all are equal. Republicans have never considered that all are equal whether it is their practice of giving corporations the ability to avoid paying taxes and raising tax on the poor, or stealing Americans’ pensions and giving them to the wealthy as tax cuts, their disparate treatment of Americans they are supposed to serve is abominable. However, the people should not feel too set upon, because the contradictory standards the GOP applies to the occupant of the White House are just as despicable as their treatment of the American people and the media is as pathetic as Republicans.
One can understand the sentiments of rubes in conservative ranks with mental recall rivaling an amoeba, but the media and Republicans in Congress, who were both part and parcel of enabling Bush practices they condoned and often promoted, certainly are aware that the so-called outrages of the Obama Administration were commonplace and never questioned, much less assailed as scandalous, when a Republican sat in the Oval Office. It is accepted by any thinking human being that Republicans are hurling fallacious allegations at the Obama White House in spite of irrefutable evidence their attacks are nothing more than witch hunts to cover their incompetence and denial over the results of the last election, but the media is woefully complicit in withholding criticism of Republican double standards and have inexorably joined the likes of Fox News, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh and lost all credibility as responsible journalists.
....The list of media cover-ups of Republicans’ applying a different standard to President Obama, an African American man, than a white George Bush is endless, and they are both responsible for the populations’ ignorance of Republican attempts to keep this nation from progressing much beyond the devastation of the last Republican administration. For the New York Times to claim President Obama has lost credibility for a seven year practice their favorite son George W. Bush began informs that the only credibility gap in this country exists in main stream media and not the Obama Administration. It is important to remember that this is the same New York Times that promoted the rush to war with Iraq when they knew Bush was lying and didn’t call for impeachment when Bush outed an active CIA operative to silence a man who reported Iraq was not developing a nuclear weapon. As guilty as Republicans are for applying a different standard to President Obama than they did Bush, the main stream media is worse because their job is supposed to be reporting truth, but truth requires applying the same standard for all; something media and Republicans are incapable of.

It's only because now Obama is in charge that YOU noticed.
Welcome to the club finally.

<quoted text>
and here's where you fail...
Who's paying the Hospitals? The insurance companies. Do the insurance companies charge their members what it costs for one person to visit the hospital? No. the depend on more healthy people to pay for the less sick people. Will healthy people make more trips to the hospital/doctor if it doesn't cost them anything? yes. There ain't enough money.
I know this will be an absolute shock to you but insurance companies actually base their pricing on statistical analysis of various age groups. They do this now, really. No sh*t.

And they are profitable.

The insurance companies will now have more customers & more profits.

Those without insurance now use the medical facilities & often can not pay.

These 30 million newly insured will now use these facilities and pay with their insurance.

So explain why this will destroy private insurance companies. Explain why adding thee 30 million new customers will harm doctors & hospitals?

If those 30 million people suddenly found jobs w/ medical benefits, how would that be different?

Calm down, we've all seen NCIS, I was referring to disposable cell phones. They can't track you any further once you've gotten rid of it.

I try to remember to come here late at night to post something. It drives lily crazy as I have seen her complain how unfair it was that people sneak in and post late at night - how dare anyone post after lily goes to bed.

I am positive lily doesn't remember a lot of what she posts -she is a knee-jerk poster.

First fruit flies, someday humans.
Although don't we live too long as it is? Back when 50 was considered old did we have all these healthcare expenses.
People died now we spare no expense to keep people alive.
I'm not suggesting anything, just making an observation.
Is that why sonic is half gay...just in case?

No one,least of all Bernanke, foresees that the U S economic resurgence won't continue to the end of Obama's second term(if we don't do things differently to cause a train wreck for the economy)Alas, there are some who are hurtling towards the train track edges like mortgage realtors returning to their old practices of packaging subprime mortgages to people who can't afford to buy them in a growing housing market or Bank of American returning to their old deceptive loan advertising with hidden high penalty rates to suck customers in or rating industry giants like Moody's and S&P taking bribes again from Big Banks to give all-star ratings to poorly-packaged, rip-off derivatives trading 'deals'(primary cause of the 2007-08 financial meltdown) and republican Congressmen blocking the regulatory finance reforms of Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
No rational lending institution will make long-term loans at current interest rates without passing the risk to others.
