So does "Homer stuck in the 1880s when people actually were denied healthcare coverage" mean?
Here's your chance to explain why that statement does not say people were not denied coverage since 1880.
You are one stupid fck. Homer implied 30 million people were denied health indurance prior to aca. I was showing him how stupid that sounded. Homer got it.

It's easy to prove your posts wrong, even though you are a weasel.
For example, in the above post, you state Bush did the invasions. That is mere rhetoric from you bimbos. The reality is this:

Liars like you never cite proof to backup your lies.
Yeah sure thing Moonbat, Obama accomplished a lot of good in Libya. The now fly Al Qaeda flags over government buildings, we lost 400 SAMs and:
"The black flag of Al Qaeda has been spotted flying over a public building in Libya, raising concerns that the country could lurch towards Muslim extremism. "

You are a liar and an idiot, 2008Bill.
Bush lobbied for the Iraq war. Cheney was running to the CIA everyday looking for a reason. You want to deny that?

According to you, Congress decided to go to war all on their own.

But Bush asked ( yes asked) Congress to give him the authority in order to give him a "bigger stick" to force nuclear inspections. He said military action was a last resort.

Congress said OK & Bush started moving troops.

The idea that you condone killing 4000 soldiers based on lies & deceit shows just how little you care about the lives of our military personnel.

Ah, yes, Battle of Wounded Pee. Tonto remember details well: cowboys line up in parking lot with boxes and boxes of urinal cakes and Indians barricade themselves inside with boxes of rocks. As cowboys await their moment to attack, sun come up and melt all urinal cakes. Rocks, however, are as sound as ever. It was a short war but it smelled ok.
Tonto having some difficulty with chronology, however, did you get job swapping out urinal cakes to pay your way through college before or after illustrious career as warrior?
You're close, two-dogs-humping.
I actually cleaned bathrooms at gas stations and cleaned dumpster sites at apartment complexes to get money to live on when the oil field crashed in the early 80s.
When I was at a university, I waited banquets and cleaned a bar after it closed on Friday and Saturday nights to augment the small amount of money I got from the GI Bill.
As you can probably tell, I have no sympathy for the so-called "poor" in this country who just won't work.

So, is it my turn again?

This isn't the same as hundreds of birds falling out of the sky at once in the Midwest and hundreds of dead fish washing ashore along the East Coast, both in 2011.

Honey bees are simply disappearing. I watched a document on it the other day. It's what got me thinking again about the dead birds and fish a few years ago.

Something's going on. Nature knows. Hope we figure it out soon.

It's a widely accepted belief that pesticides and humans interfering with the natural order of things in honey bee hives to produce more honey has caused the disappearance of honey bees worldwide.

Very sad when humans alter or interfere with nature out of sheer greed.

No, no, no, he not mean Vietnam, that was pretty well all wrapped up by them, except for packing up the collaborators and running like rabbits. He mean the War in Canada to avoid being deported back to the US to go to jail for draft evasion. Janitors received amnesty in that one too.

The housing collapse started in 2006. Before Dodd & Frank had committee chairs.
Your own post said it.
But you said two years after Dodd & Frank began oversight which would be Jan of 2011.
You just called yourself a liar.
The COLLAPSE was in 2008, dumbass. The decline began in 2006.

Christopher Dodd took over chairmanship of the Senate Banking Committee in January, 2007, idiot. Barney Frank took over chairmanship of the Financial Services Committee in January, 2007, you fucking moron.
We heard a constant stream of lies from these two all the way up to the collapse at the end of 2008, dumbass.

So 30 million had no insurance.

The ACA will enable 30 million to get it.

The Republicans in repealing the ACA would deny those 30 million that coverage.

You said no one was denied health insurance since 1880. You tell that to millions with medical conditions that got denied for coverage prior to the ACA since you want to bring back that practice.

You're a GD idiot.

You don't support the MB by any chance?
Qatar, home to Al Jazeera, supports the Muslim Brotherhood as does Jordan and many other US allies.

Your pals at FOX News have you very confused about the Muslim Brotherhood, your confusion is apparent in your posts on the topic.

BTW Qatar was very helpful to the Bush Administration regarding the Iraq invasion and the Bush Administration, in return, was very generou$

The federal government has gotten too big to oversee abuses in the welfare programs or even manage veterans' benefits.

The SNAP program was designed to feed hungry children and the truly needy.

But all welfare programs were meant to be temporary - not a permanent lifestyle.

So money is being taken out of the paychecks of the lower middle class who are struggling to feed their own children without food stamps.

Only because the federal government has become so huge, it can't even see its toes.

Why is putting the federal government back in its place and giving the power back to the states such a bad idea to most liberals?

That's because the CRA welfare mortgages were bundled into traunches and transferred to Special Purpose Vehicles in foreign countries, then sold back to the original mortgage underwriting company as a single unit, removing the individual worthless mortgages from their books and replacing them with a single traunch which cannot be investigated without the governments of the countries these Special Purpose Vehicles were created in forcing these Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for investigation... something the government of the United States has not done.
If you want direct proof, why not ask Ben Bernanke why he specifically referenced "Special Purpose Vehicles" in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of him immediately ceased, and it was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC and guarantee 100 percent support from Democrats for him to resume as head of the Fed.
You really don't know anything about this, do you?

Assuming this is true (you didn't provide a source), it's not about not wanting children to be fed. It would be great if that's all SNAP was used for and to feed the truly needy.
It's about a massive federal government not overseeing the abuse and fraud because of its massive size which is taking money out of the paychecks of the middle and lower middle classes who are struggling to survive and feed their children without food stamps.
Don't you care about hardworking Americans who are just getting by without food stamps having to pay for those who have no problem abusing the broken system, especially since this president stifled jobs with Obamacare and encourages a welfare state?
You must know abuse and fraud is going on everywhere. There are absolutely no restrictions and no oversight. It's a smorgasbord of entitlements to anyone without a conscience.
Surely, you know there are people who have no conscience and abuse the broken system at others' expense.
Right?
LOL! Want to talk about massive fraud? You voted for that criminal Rick Scott who became a billionaire by committing the biggest fraud on Medicare; now he's back for more! The private prison companies put him in office, along with the dummies like you who vote about abortion.
