Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Again, you are using smoke and mirrors to make your point. Employees do not have 100% coverage even if enrolled in an HMO plan. When they retire, their employer no longer contributes anything toward their insurance premiums so the "sticker shock" will be there whether Medicare is or not.
Now, people do not have to have supplemental insurance. It is an OPTION for those retirees who do not wish to enroll in an HMO plan and don't want to bother with fees for office visits, etc. Got it? It is an OPTION ONLY for those who want 100% coverage. Something they never had under their employer's plan. If they want a better plan, they can pay for it. Nothing wrong with that.
YOu really showed your "FWEERIDER" entitle_Mental cluelessness on that.

Even WITH optional additional coverages- for many WORKING class retirees--there is still --NO such thing as "100 percent coverage" as they STILL PAY co-pays on everything from scripts to office visits and any procedures as well.

The WORKING class has PAID enough-it's time for the FWEERIDING nothing but take, take, take from OTHERS hard earned tax dollars givverment draining lemmings to be CAPPED and contribute to what they continually MOOCH from others themselves!!!!!!!!

it's much easier for those who hate anyone who is different from them to try to keep those folks from voting rather than trying to get them to vote for a hater.
no big deal though. it just gives conservatives one more way to put another nail in the coffin of the GOP.

<quoted text> Look I'm against passing laws to comfort a certain groups securities but, I truly don't care who dates or sleeps with who. It's none of my business. In a world where there has to be laws & rules to govern society, we shouldn't be encouraging gay anything to kids. They're learning about sexual orientation far too young &, it's not the school or society's job to teach our children about such life altering events. Now on the same hand, if this country is based on freedom as we're told, the majority shouldn't have to accommodate the emotions of the minority. I know people will compare being gay to black slavery but, before you do, they're not on the same playing field. For one being black is not a choice. Here comes the argument! 2nd, blacks were targeted for just that being black. Gays aren't targeted for being gay by society in general. I for 1 don't see the big deal in giving them the same rights under a different title. If that's the big deal, it can be easily solved. Sorry for my rambling but, my concern is for the kids. They are 2 easily influenced!
If your concern is for the kids then don't have the government raise your kids.

Sure thing Ditz. You don't think the Republicans can lie better than your Messiah, yours truly, do you?

Us far left fascist loons have the corrupt Lamestream Media on our side as well so we can lie without being challenged.

Sure thing Moonbat. I think this is more like reality, douchebag:

"The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.

The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47 percent last month to 37 percent. Obama's disapproval among independents jumped 12 points to 61 percent. Again, more bad news for Democrats because those independents are especially important in mid-term elections in which older, more conservative Americans predominate.

The network pointed to several major scandals as evidence for the drop.

"The White House has been under siege over telephone and Internet surveillance, the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups, its handling of the terror attack on the U.S. consular post in Benghazi, Libya, and the Justice Department's collecting journalists' phone records as part of the government's investigation into leaks of classified information," CNN reported.

You illustrate the point well, Medicare does drive costs. That's the main contributor to the high cost of care in this country. This half-in/half-out approach screws those in the middle, the ones not qualifying for Medicare/Medicaid and the indigent. Health care reform started with a single-payer option but Obama insisted Obamacare be "bi-partisan" (it didn't end up being that so what did he gain?) so single-payer was dropped when that was actually the most efficient alternative on the table. Privatizing health care was never on the table from either side, they both need the old folks vote so don't hold your breath on that one. Ironically, a market based solution to the obesity problem you brought up would likely be much more effective than any government attempt to regulate or educate the problem away. Having your obesity come out of your checking account every month would go further towards changing behavior than any PSA.
Anyway, good post.
Why just obesity and not other behavior that might affect medical costs?

<quoted text> The same damn thing Obama did when he took office. Use the CIA to track all who self proclaimed to be a part of 9/11. Not invade invade a sovereign nation that had nothing to do with it. Using your logic, we should've went to war with Pakistan because that's where we found bin Laden. That was Bush's premise for invading Afghanistan. This is where the smart president Barack understood we didn't need a full out invasion to kill bin Laden. That's what or special forces are for. Compared to the not so smart president Bush tried to use military might in a fill out invasion which accomplished nothing.
Suggestion-

You know those things they call libraries...those places Galt defines as repositories of "old information"?
If you walk into one of those...find one of them thar new fangled machines they call computers, complete with programs that let patrons search the shelves with a couple clicks of a mouse button...and type in a few relative to the subject keywords (like al qeada, afghanistan, bin_laden and 9/11)...you might find some very enlightening information.

Like that's exactly what the initial "battle back" plan was.

For example-

The United States Army in Afghanistan. Operation Enduring Freedom. Oct 2001-March 2002.

After the attacks on Americans in September 2001, the United States quickly uncovered clues as to the identity and organizational affiliation of the suicide terrorists who crashed planes into the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. However, knowing that al Qaeda was responsible for the attacks, and that al Qaeda was based primarily in Afghanistan, was one thing. How to attack it was another. Afghanistan is an immense, land-locked country approximately the size of Texas with a population of around 24 million.(See Map 1.) It is a land of massive mountain ranges and remote valleys in the north and east and near desert-like conditions on the plains to the south and west. Road and rail communications nets were minimal and in disrepair. The rough terrain had been one of the major obstacles the Soviet troops faced during their war, and it would provide challenges to any U.S. military effort.

The United States had attempted to attack the terrorists in Afghanistan before. In 1998 the Clinton administration had launched cruise missiles against known or suspected terrorist training camps after terrorists attacked several U.S. embassies.

This handful of cruise missiles, however, did little more than stir up the hornet's nest. Only troops on the ground would be able to locate and kill the terrorists. However, without sea or air lines of communications, the movement of large numbers of conventional troops to the area with the missions of seizing terrain or locating and killing terrorists seemed a nearly impossible task. Reflecting that assessment, both Taliban and al Qaeda leaders seemed smugly safe in their faraway mountain strongholds. Nevertheless, within a month of the September 11th attacks the U.S. Army had deployed forces to Central Asia to confront the terrorists on their own ground. One of the first of these units was the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The unique talents and skills of this Special Operations unit would be tapped to penetrate this terrorist redoubt and assist the Northern Alliance in overthrowing the Taliban and rooting out the al Qaeda.

And just as a side note DUHpont-how is it your "o so smert current opotus admin" totally FAILED on even being able to recognize the blatant signs of TERRORISM in it's FACE-of big black flags waving in Benghazi AND red flags and whistles blowing of Chechnyan mujuhideens romping around Boston??????????

Gutting Voting Rights: Supreme Court Gives Racist Republicans Just What They Wanted
The Voting Rights Act has been doing precisely what it was intended to do for nearly fifty years. It was reauthorized in 2006 with overwhelming support in congress (98-0 in the senate, 390-33 in the House) and signed by George W. Bush. For the Court to overturn the will of the people in this regard tags them as just the sort of activist jurists that right-wingers usually assail. The Actís usefulness was demonstrated just last year when numerous localities tried, but failed, to implement voter suppression schemes.

By that logic, you should support the Court upholding Prop 8.

Wow!

We still have an economy in the tank, countries around the world are thumbing their noses at Lord Obama (they discovered he's a poser), Benghazi, IRS, NSA wiretapping-- now what is the Annointed One charging after?

GLOBAL WARMING! Yep, heard this morning he wants to start taxing the hell out of anything that emits carbon dioxide.

Two weeks ago we in Idaho were told that our electric rates are going up 12% because, among other things, the utilities bought expensive windmills that were subsidized by the federal gubbermint. Now that the feds are unable to continue subsidizing them, we're stuck with these windmills, which will never make electricity as economically as carbon fuels.

Oh yeah, we'll just absorb another Socialist/Democrat brain fart. Just like Obamacare, which we get to start paying for BIG TIME next year.

I wish there was a way to isolate the Socialist/Democrats so that THEY pay for their idiotic ideas. If they want socialized medicine, FINE! If they want to pay triple the amount for their electricity because of some myth about global warming, FINE! Just let the rest of us who haven't taken leave of our brains opt out.
