I'm not sure if Flacko quizzes the patrons about their finances (perhaps) or whether it's just booze talking but it sounds like the sort of conversations that one might hear at a VFW or Moose club during the afternoons.
"Higher bar" made me lol__because one can hear the same conversations while sitting at the highest(priced) bars-restaurants in town, no matter the town__smoking or non-smoking.
It's all relative to how long one enjoys sitting at the bar. Two drinks and out, or seven hours and carried out.
Well thank you I think.

So, you are blaming Obama for not opening the parks the Republicans closed?
No, I was speaking about the incompetence of not picking up a pen and signing a waiver for Patriots in need.

But since you mentioned it, the parks could've eeasily been reopened too, and all those extreme "barrycades" removed even sooner- save for the childesh antics of megalomaniacs wanting it all their commie ways or not at all.

Duhmmy.

Democrats voted to fund the government,

Not true.
In 2020, the rate is 90% where it remains.
Galt is known for big grossly uninformed on the ACA & how health insurance works in general.
Dumbass Dave is a liar...this from a pro-ObamaKKKare site

"The Federal Government pays 100% of expansion costs for the first three years and 90% thereafter until 2022."

Interesting that you should mention it, but a lot of the right wing rhetoric here really is chest thumping bar talk. That's where everyone has a better idea and they're always right because all you have to do to prove you're right is talk louder than the other guy.

Companies used to be led by CEOs whose job was long term growth & stock holders went along for the ride.
Today stockholders control the CEOs whose job has become short term profits by cutting wages, benefits, product quality for short term gains.
the stockholders own the company, not the CEO and most certainly not the employees....

For those who have made me responsible if they're unable to make a decision, I get them to tell me what their wishes are. This way it keeps the decision making in the hands of those who are best qualified
Thank you. Luckily, my siblings and I have had many discussions over the years about end of life care which certainly made my decision easier. I can't imagine anyone who is suffering not wanting their life to end if there is no chance of recovery. Too many of the people complaining about "death panels" haven't been down this road...yet.

Dude you're a little off there on history, WWII was fought against fascism, the Nazis and Japanese. The Communists were actually our allies and contributed the most against the defeat of Nazi Germany.
and President Obama and the Democrats didn't shut the gov't down, the republican party did when it refused to pass the CR with no strings attached. Fortunately for us. 60% of the American public aren't as stupid as you and realize this
do you really live in a dump like Elmont?

just curious....

Why do you believe that the elderly who have an earned right to collect social security should be fleeced by people like you?
sadly, there is no "right" to Social Security...which can be cancelled by the government at any time....

I seriously doubt that you have anything to worry about. Someone with your obsession with every dollar usually doesn't have a pot to piss in.... let alone combined gross assets and prior taxable gifts exceeding $5 million.

Not true. Decisions regarding end of life care are made by doctors...not the government. My brother died in January. He had medicare. I discussed with the doctors all his options and it was I, NOT the government, NOT the doctors who made the decision to return him home under hospice care where he died with dignity while I held his hand. This is the third time I have been down this road.
I wish each and everyone of you ReTHUGS would have to go down this road at least once...good luck getting the "government" to make that end of life decision for you.
when doctors work for the government, the government makes the decisions...

That is a very good analogy. Thanks. Of course, in addition to talking louder, you have to bring your friends to back you up.

<quoted text>Yeah, thanks Flack but that didn't answer my question did it? Particularly since your, cough, data is aged.
For instance the US currently owes China nearly $1.27 trillion
www.davemanuel.com is a site that has several interesting, accurate and up to the minute categories such as current debt-inflation rate etc.
Have fun debunking yourself.
China holds about 7% of the US debt...no big deal...if China stopped buying, interest rates would go up, a good thing...

RealDave is ACA a government or private Health Care Plan?
ObamaKKKare is just a brief pause on the road to nationalized medical care....the insurance companies, doctors, and hospitals will never know what hit them...
