Because when it comes to matters of life and death, civilized societies shouldn't need government to give a thumbs up or thumbs down. Now, should they?
Of course, when you lower the bar of moral standards in any society, don't be surprised when you discover it has become more barbaric than civilized.
So called 'civilized societies' are responsible for more wars and deaths than any other group in history.

You don't know how many life and death decisions were made by colonial nations, the 'civilized societies' of their time, do you??

Look to Hawaiian history to see what 'civilized Americans' did to the Hawaiian society, which had been in place for centuries before we decided our Christian ways were superior.

Christianity is the biggest killer in history.

And that same sense of superiority is what brought down Paula Deen, who is a racist just like you, Carol. A genteel, Southern racist that isn't even aware of her racism, because it's so ingrained in your southern culture.

And as far as the stupidity that liberals brought Paula Deen down, there's this;

WalMart is far from a liberal Corporation

As is Walgreen's, Sears, and all the others that are dropping Deen like a hot potato.

Not a one of these nitwits questions why we will let any Cuban who makes it stay here.
If Mexico goes Communist, we'd open our borders to Mexicans for political purposes.
And these same idiots would support it.

Nope, not a TP. Just another example of your hypocritical application of the concept of "less government". Don't feel bad, all retarded right-wingers have been taught that more = less.
Keep up the left wing bs, it won't change the facts. Idiots like you think if conservatives advocate for more fire departments they are being hypocritical. Idiotic arguements are all you have.

Border security also means performing due diligence before granting citizenship to those like the Boston bomber.
Border security is a fantasy. Why don'y you suggest putting employers in jail? This would be a lot more effective than your suggestion to put the illegals in jail.

In fact, all Galt suggested was that women were being treated as second-class citizens because abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.
There is no such right, but that's another story.

The thing that disappoints me the most is I pegged you to be so much smarter than you apparently are.

You think SS and Medicare has been managed effectively by the government since its inception? And, if so, why are both of these programs bringing us to our knees?

We are in the Obama recession of 2009. Otherwise known as the Obamacare recession.

Please don't keep disappointing me. I have to have some hope for at least one of you liberals.

When you dismiss a "crappy minimum wage job" for someone with no experience and no skills, you admit defeat.

Most people have worked for minimum wage at some point in their lives.

1. Never under estimate or disparage the advantages of the Honest Earned Virtues derived of "crappy minimum wage jobs"...especially for younger people.

Oh, goody! Another chance to remind another liberal Senator Hillary Clinton shot that argument smack dab in the foot.
"Saddam Hussein is providing aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists including al Qaeda."
Sen. Hillary Clinton supporting Iraq War on Senate Floor 2002
So...what say you? You still going to argue Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11?
She had plenty more to say about supporting the Iraq War in that same speech if you want me to cut and paste it for you.
Her only fault was in believing the fake intel provided to the Senate by Cheney. And the lies Bush told at the State of the Union.

The President and Vice President lied their asses off about Saddam and Iraq.

Paste all you want. The Iraq War was Bush's debacle, no one else is held accountable by the American People.

Bush still has arrest warrants awaiting him in many foreign capitals.

Yet you continue your stupid defense.

The fact is unchanged that many medical practices need to limit the percentage of the patients on Medicare and will decline to accept new patients who are on Medicare, while continuing to treat existing patients who move to Medicare.
So just hope your doctor doesn't retire or die.
Doctors were there for Ayn Rand when she had her moment of truth.

Cigarette industry does work limiting the number of patients on Medicare.

A typically air headed statement from the thread air head, Nobraina.
Why is it you offer stupid opinion when the facts are readily available?? Because you're what you've always been, Nobraina, a complete idiot.
CBO says the immigrants will add to Americas's prosperity, by reducing the budget deficit by $197 BILLION, ya freakin' Obamaphobic Teatard.
----------
How Would the Legislation Affect the Federal Budget from 2014 Through 2023?
CBO and JCT estimate that enacting S. 744 would generate changes in direct spending and revenues that would decrease federal budget deficits by $197 billion over the 20142023 period. CBO also estimates that implementing the legislation would result in net discretionary costs of $22 billion over the 20142023 period, assuming appropriation of the amounts authorized or otherwise needed to implement the legislation. Combining those figures would lead to a net savings of about $175 billion over the 20142023 period from enacting S. 744. However, the net impact of the bill on federal deficits would depend on future actions by lawmakers, who could choose to appropriate more or less than the amounts estimated by CBO. In addition, the total amount of discretionary funding is currently capped (through 2021) by the Budget Control Act of 2011; extra funding for the purposes of this legislation might lead to lower funding for other purposes.
----------
The 30 Billion for border security is a waste of money to get a few Reppugnant votes.. So much for fiscal responsibility from you nitwits.
I'm happy to see the House convince hispanics and asians that the Repugnant Party is a hateful group of old white idiots, dying off faster than they can be replaced. Hispanics don't have that problem.
Galt says increased border security (huge provision in the bill) will save money. You call him stupid then prove the bill (increased border security is a huge part of the bill) will save money. You bring the collective liberal iq down about 30 points. No wonder none of then claim you.

Which are you on at present? Social Security and or Medicare?

Dave, doctors are dropping Medicare patients. Your whine does not explain why this happening.
Try something that doesn't have "but Bush" in the reason.
The Bush recession is a fact in history & exists no matter how hard you try to deny it.

My post was very clear on the medicare & doctor pay issue.

Try looking up "doc fix" and maybe you won't be such an uninformed dumbass all the time.

Funny how after losing two consecutive elections that you were 100% certain you'd win, you still claim the majority had it wrong.

Ya just can't get more blindly partisan or dumb than that.

Meanwhile, you just keep waiting for all the blacks, hispanics women, asians, and Catholics to support your candidates.

Hold your breath while doing so, do us all a favor.
