Old idiot of a thousand names say what? It's doing great despite the zillion lies your party of un-Americans have put out there.. Just like your party said and did with Social Security and a few other programs that the Dems have passed through the years in order to help and show their love for fellow Americans...I know a lowlife like you gets a check every month...Hypocrite.
Excuse me paranoid senile old coot, but I do not have a "thousand" names like you do, Wilhelm, or should we call you Pope John?

Party of un-Americans? Yours are the people that spit on our Vietnam Vets after coming back to where Democrats like President Johnson sent them, and it's your leaders that trash America when abroad.

Social Security? You guys liked that Republicans wanted to "cut" Social Security when Clinton was president liar. Republicans simply wanted to have a smaller "Increase", liar.

You really are a liar and an idiot, old codger.

Now, Tonto understand names like Goldman or Sachs aren't necessarily tied to any particular cult or sect or country but it peculiar how often names like that turn up when there's dirty money around. Might be coincidence but sure happen a lot... much like Tonto and women named "Sharon." Also peculiar is the right-wing new-found commitment to Jews and Israel. After all just a few years ago they used them to decorate trees in Atlanta, places like that. Sure was quick turn-around, Tonto wish they'd get on the stick with the Native Americans. That why we build casinos, we want Americans to love us too.

Try these stats:
Fernando Mateo, head of the New York taxicab union, urges his drivers to profile blacks and Hispanics for their own safety: "The God's honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these drivers are blacks and Hispanics."
Mateo is what The New York Times would describe as "a black Hispanic" Yet he may be closer to the 'hood than Holder, who says he was stopped by police when running to a movie — in Georgetown.
Which raises a relevant question. Georgetown is an elitist enclave of a national capital that has been ruled by black mayors for half a century. It's never had a white mayor.
Is Holder saying we've got racist cops in the district where Obama carried 86 percent of the white vote and 97 percent of the black vote? And his son should fear the white cops in Washington, D.C.?
What about interracial crime, white-on-black attacks and the reverse?
After researching the FBI numbers for "Suicide of a Superpower," this writer concluded: "An analysis of 'single offender victimization figures' from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks. Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white — with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study."
Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.
Me and jesse jackson, we're going to watch for creepy ass blacks. You can beware one legged fat asian ladies.
These are shocking stats and every HS kid in America should be made aware of them. But won't, of course.

Teach your children well.

When you set these numbers alongside the schmaltzy racist crap coming out of the Magic Negro's trap, he pales into f*ckn Chicago jive-turky organizer.

But, but, why are so many unions having a cow about Obamacare and that they don't want it? Can we come up with one employed person who speaks English who is in favor of it?
Exactly!

Nope!

I posted a link to an article by the leftwing NY Times, where even they admitted state employee unions rejected a contract deal because they thought a program like Obamacare was in it.

Even the Democrats stalwart supporters (Unions) don't want Obamacare.

They finally realize they were sold a bunch of lies by Democrats.

"You can keep your own doctor"!- LIE

Obama lied, Democrats lied.

They cannot be trusted.

Tonto read in Washington Post today that military puts little American flags in nose of drones. Then, after every flight, they take flag out and give it to squaws of big chiefs as gift. Remind Tonto of Andrew Jackson in "Seminole Wars" have Indians skinned and tanned and made into bridles for ladies of Savannah. Tonto always wonder what Seminoles did wrong other then living in a place the whites wanted. This make it REALLY difficult to see military as heroes, junior high schoolers is more like it.

Hmmm...

Maybe Democrats and black have learned their lesson about harming themselves...

"Members of the Congressional Black Caucus appear undecided so far on whether to support a call for a boycott of Florida over the Trayvon Martin case, with Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards saying Sunday such a move could be "devastating" to some communities in the state.

Edwards, a Democrat, told “Fox News Sunday” that she has yet to fully examine the call to boycott, as proposed by civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Jackson said after a Florida jury found neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman not guilty July 13 of all charges in the fatal 2012 shooting of Martin, a black teenager, that his Rainbow PUSH Coalition would consider a boycotting on Florida, which he characterized as a “kind of apartheid state."

Tonto not celebrate either and wish it were otherwise. He know quite a few deserving soldiers and their families and sometimes admire their dedication, but he feel same way about teachers. Tonto not understand why he asked to celebrate one and not the other? Seem to Tonto that heartland conservatives sure like to start wars and spend public money like water. Tonto concerned this not be a coincidence. Tonto concerned that people who covet money see military action as money-making opportunity...
Tonto also wrestle with concept of offending his friends who may have been in military and who abused no one during that time, but he pretty sure matter too important to avoid discussion. If some person or entity is making money off conflicts they start themselves, Tonto want to know about it so he can act.
Today in NYT Tonto read about how Goldman Sachs move ingot aluminum around from warehouse to warehouse to drive up price of aluminum by handling and storing it more. Not accident, Goldman does this on purpose. Tonto's sense of this discovery is that the military should be used to round up the complicit parties at Goldman Sachs and shoot them for they are traitors and thieves of the most pernicious sort. Use military here at home to end expensive political crisis brought on by greedy "Americans" whose idea of patriotism is made in china. Then Tonto celebrate military as heroes.
Tonto one smart Injun. I agree. But now your truths have angered the whiney azzed baggers on here...But then again what don't? They danced in the street for all of the Bush-Cheney lies and unecessary wars, along with ruining our economy as they defended corporate America all the while their fat empty heads were submerged up their azzes. Now suddenly these idiots want us to believe that they have all the answers?????Talk about minions.

Rick Perry is an idiot that even dumb bell George W Bush looks 'smart' next to. "When Governor Rick Perry announced that he planned to tour the country in hopes of bringing businesses away from other states to Texas, Lewis Black found it a little distasteful.

That is, until he came to New York. Then, it became personal. "

Editorial: Desperately flailing at Obamacare as it saves lives and money

The old adage that “it’s easier to tear something down than it is to build it” has never been on more vibrant display than during the current debate on implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The health care law’s critics, who have spent more than three years trying to gut it, are now gleefully predicting that as more of its provisions are rolled out next year,“Obamacare” will be seen as an expensive flop. It’s as if someone spent three years tearing parts off a car and then predicted it wouldn’t run very well.

On Thursday President Barack Obama — who has embraced the once-pejorative term “Obamacare”— surrounded himself at the White House with people who already are benefiting from the law and declared that it “is doing what it’s designed to do:(delivering) more choices, better benefits, a check on rising costs and higher quality care.”

Jon Favreau, the president’s former top speechwriter, argues that the uptick in the anti-Obamacare crusade is a result of Republicans’ being “terrified that Obamacare could actually work.” In a July 11 article in thedailybeast.com , Mr. Favreau asked,“If Republicans are so confident Obamacare will end badly, why not just shut up about it?”

It’s a good question, and the answer seems to be that there is still right-wing political mileage in the issue — particularly now, as the immense difficulties of putting the law’s coverage mandates into effect become apparent. Convincing the uninsured to buy health insurance, and requiring employers to offer it, were always going to be the tough part. But thanks in part to Republican obstructionism, it’s turned out to be tougher than the administration envisioned.

....The fact remains that even though some big insurance companies have refused to sign up, states that have created insurance exchanges have seen the “magic of the marketplace”— once a favorite phrase of Republicans — drive down the cost of individual health insurance policies. In New York, Oregon and California, rates have fallen as much as 50 percent.

And while the Supreme Court famously upheld the individual mandate, it ruled that state governments could not be required to expand their Medicaid programs. More than 20 states, including Missouri, have refused to expand Medicaid programs to include the working poor, despite the huge financial windfall it would create. To say nothing of healthier populations and lower costs for the privately insured.

This stubborn refusal is driven strictly by politics, by the perverse hope that by keeping people sick and costs high, Republicans — who still have no better alternatives — can salvage some form of nihilist victory. This is profoundly shameful.

The Affordable Care Act is not perfect and may never be. Inevitably, economics will force it to give way to a single-payer national health care system. But in the meantime, it’s saving lives, saving money and making health care available to those who, as in parable of the Good Samaritan, were left to suffer at the side of the road.
