What year is it? 2013?
How about we talk about the issue.
You didn't respond to the subject of the post. All you did was regurgitate some programmed indoctrinated bullshit without addressing the content of the post.
Here it is again for your convenient reference:
Want health care?
You've already got it. No hospital can refuse treatment to anyone who needs it.
Or, what you really want is the same health insurance as everyone else paying for it, right?
I'll tell you how to get health insurance like everyone in Congress has: get elected to Congress.
How to get health insurance everyone who works their whole life has: get a fucking job and show up for work every day on time and do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
Problem solved. That wasn't too difficult.
What other problem can we solve for you?
Dumbwaiter thinks treating injuries & the effets of disease is healthcare. Its not. Healthcare is regular visits to the doctor where conditions & diseases are caught early or prevented.

Then you think all employers provide health insurance. Just get a job & presto you have health insurance. Wow, what a sheltered life you must live.

Doubt it. Ted Cruz will be sorry he gave up his Canadian citizenship and single payer healthcare.
Who do they have? Chris Christie? Has he lost any weight since that surgery? Rand Paul, whose father is attending an anti-Semite conference? Michelle Bachman?
The only viable candidate they had was Jon Huntsman and they trashed him right away. Why? Because he was the only one with a brain.
I think Hillary's got it, but anything can happen in 3 years. Wendy Davis? Elizabeth Warren?
You indoctrinated clowns are ignoring Andrew Napolitano. It's the usual Democrat tactic of ignoring something that scares you to death.

Stop all welfare. All it does is propagate a culture voluntarily dependent on the rest of the country for subsistence without providing the motivation for self-reliance, and they get an attitude about how they are superior to everyone and demand the rest of the country pay them tribute and bow to them.
How much less money would the government spend if the government led people toward self-reliance instead of teaching them to be a leech on the rest of the country that actually makes the economy work?
Can you give us a dollar figure for the reduction of government spending if all welfare is eliminated?
Well gee son. I'm not sure how much the dod gets funded.

Oh really (pretty good coverage below)? Ethnicities are almost ALWAYS left out of stories (and that practice should end).
Bravo to her for talking him down, but it would have been preferable had she shot & killed him....
School clerk Antoinette Tuff in an interview on ABC's "World News with Diane Sawyer" said she worked to convince the gunman to put down his weapons and ammunition.
"He told me he was sorry for what he was doing. He was willing to die," Tuff told ABC.
She told him her life story, about how her marriage fell apart after 33 years and the "roller coaster" of opening her own business.
"I told him,`OK, we all have situations in our lives," she said. "It was going to be OK. If I could recover, he could, too."
Then Tuff said she asked the suspect to put his weapons down, empty his pockets and backpack on the floor.
"I told the police he was giving himself up. I just talked him through it," she said.

White person kills White person!

seeing as how only 16% of the whites who murdered every year are killed by other ethnic groups, i think that headline should be seen a lot more often, don't you? like 84% of the time?

and btw...let me know when BillO has something to say about the black woman talking the white man out doing something stupid even though he was bound to.

Update on the three Oklahoma chimps!! They need more bananas up there!!
Here are their facebook/twitter posts in the week before the little gibbon cowards murdered the unarmed Aussie kid. Shakespeare, take note.....:-)
The 15 year old is James Edwards. On August 15, a day before the shooting, the “bored” teen apparently posted a terse status update on Facebook, where he goes by the name “Lilbuggy” but his Facebook address is “blackcoon44.”
"I've never been this mad in my life...#pissed^^"
He also posted this ambiguous update, which could be taken to mean shots or music recordings. Evidently the former.
"Bang 2 drops in 2hours"
According to other posts on the page, Edwards is an aspiring rapper. And, he’s not a fan of “snitches.”

Its a shame these monkeys are now removed from the gene pool. No doubt some Nobel Laureate-worthy musings would have emerged from their stunning introspections....:-)
How about Lothar Schaeffer and his 15 year old son from Osceola County Florida.

Lothar let the kid pick out a gun so the kid chose a 45cal. assault style rifle and went out with his buds and shot up about 20 homes before shooting and killing two people just for kicks. I guess they must have been bored eh?

Lothar bonded out this morning___seems like he knew right along that the kid had murdered two people but never alerted authorities because he knew he'd be in deep shit for not securing the weapon.

Nice white folks of German heritage.

The JFK Assassination Marked the End of the American Republic
Mathias Broeckers, born 1954, is a German investigative journalist and the author of more than ten books, most of them related to the topics of drugs, terrorism and deep politics. He works for the daily German newspaper TAZ and the webzine Telepolis. His latest book,“JFK: Staatsstreich in Amerika”(“JFK: Coup d’Etat in America“), was published this August at Westend Verlag in Frankfurt, Germany.

Lars Schall: Mr. Broeckers, a writer who authors a book about the assassination of John F. Kennedy that does not follow the verdict of official history faces the problem of being condemned on an instant basis as a “conspiracy theorist” who engages in “conspiracy theories.” May I ask you at the beginning of this interview to explain to our readers that those critics – consciously or unconsciously – are acting exactly according to the “playbook” of the CIA?

Mathias Broeckers: In January 1967, shortly after Jim Garrison in New Orleans had started his prosecution of the CIA backgrounds of the murder, the CIA published a memo to all its stations, suggesting the use of the term “conspiracy theorists” for everyone criticizing the Warren Report findings. Until then the press and the public mostly used the term “assassination theories” when it came to alternative views of the “lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald. But with this memo this changed and very soon “conspiracy theories” became what it is until today: a term to smear, denounce and defame anyone who dares to speak about any crime committed by the state, military or intelligence services. Before Edward Snowden anyone claiming a kind of total surveillance of internet and phone traffic would have been named a conspiracy nut; today everyone knows better.

LS: What do you see as the prime motive(s) to get Kennedy killed?

MB: To make a long story, which I elaborate in the book, short: JFK had made definitive steps to end the cold war. He had denied the involvement of the army in the Bay of Pigs invasion, which he had inherited from his predecessor, he had solved the missile crisis in Cuba through direct and secret contact with the Soviet-leader Khrushchev, he had ensured a nuclear test-stop with the Soviets, and he had ordered the withdrawal from Vietnam. All this against the will of the military, the CIA, and even against many members of his own administration.

LS: If one looks at the crime from the perspective of “motive, means, opportunity,” which groups are the most likely culprits? Some of the usual suspects may have had a motive, but neither the means nor the opportunity, right?

Do you think Democrats would have voted to invade Iraq if the Republicans didn't concede no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA failure?
Go back and look at some US history where the Democrats were right with Bush in Iraq. The Republicans gave them their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy, and the Democrats supported the war in Iraq.
lol! You're such an idiot.

CRA was caused by capitalistic greed.

And that explains Obama being indoctrinated in Marxist communism and Saul Alinsky tactics his entire life, apologizing all over the world for the United States being the United States, sabotaging Iraq, sabotaging Afghanistan, and having muslim terrorists in the White House every day.
If Obama loves this country, why did he surround himself with the people who hated the United States his entire life?
How about we get one of those old patriotic chants going.
Everybody. All together now.

Now, that's love for a country.
Any enemy of the United States is, and has always been, a friend to Obama. That's why muslim terrorists are in the White House every day.

United Parcel Service Inc. plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based logistics company points to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News.

The decision comes as many analysts are downplaying the Affordable Care Act's effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move reflects a long-term trend of shrinking corporate medical benefits, Kaiser Health News reports. But UPS repeatedly cites Obamacare to explain the decision, adding fuel to the debate over whether it erodes traditional employer coverage, Kaiser says.

Rising medical costs,“combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost,” UPS said in a memo to employees.

According to Kaiser, UPS told white-collar workers two months ago that 15,000 working spouses eligible for coverage by their own employers would be excluded from the UPS plan in 2014.

UPS expects the move, which applies to non-union U.S. workers only, to save about $60 million a year, company spokesman Andy McGowan said.

The health law requires large employers to cover employees and dependent children, but not spouses or domestic partners, Kaiser adds.

By the way, I want to see Andrew Napolitano run for president. I'm a federalist. That means I have some problems with Libertarians managing a federal government.
However, considering how radical this administration has been, we probably need something like a Libertarian government for a while to get us back to sanity.

CIA Admits It Hired People to Impersonate Enemies and Commit Terrorism in Iran
The news that the CIA has admitted that it helped overthrow Iran’s democratically elected president in 1953 has gone viral.

In reality, the CIA admitted that a long time ago. Indeed, the bigger story is that the CIA admitted that it hired Iranians in the 1950&#8242;s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister.

Indeed, governments from around the world admit they carry out this sort of subterfuge:

A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed)(and see this and this)
The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligenceadmit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated:“You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security”(and see this)(Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred).

THE TRUTH COMES OUT WHEN ALL GUILTY PARTIES ARE DEAD OR TOO OLD TO MATTER As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960&#8242;s, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
2 years before, American Senator George Smathers had suggested that the U.S. make “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.
And Official State Department documents show that – only nine months before the Joint Chiefs of Staff plan was proposed – the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The 3 plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals
The South African Truth and Reconciliation Council found that, in 1989, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (a covert branch of the South African Defense Force) approached an explosives expert and asked him “to participate in an operation aimed at discrediting the ANC [the African National Congress] by bombing the police vehicle of the investigating officer into the murder incident”, thus framing the ANC for the bombing
An Algerian diplomat and several officers in the Algerian army admit that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians and then blamed Islamic militants for the killings (and see this video; and Agence France-Presse, 9/27/2002, French Court Dismisses Algerian Defamation Suit Against Author)
Senior Russian Senior military and intelligence officers admit that the KGB blew up Russian apartment buildings and falsely blamed it on Chechens, in order to justify an invasion of Chechnya (and see this report and this discussion)
According to the Washington Post, Indonesian police admit that the Indonesian military killed American teachers in Papua in 2002 and blamed the murders on a Papuan separatist group in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organization.
The well-respected former Indonesian president also admits that the government probably had a role in the Bali bombings
