I just jumped over about 800 posts and I'm sure nothing has changed...Obstructionist Republicans are still stuck on stupid and posting the most illogical, preposterous and fundamentally bizarre arguments to see the light of day.

"President Obama wasn't born in the United States" "President Obama won't protect the country" "President Obama is a Muslim sympathizer" "President Obama is a communist"
"President Obama is gay"
"President Obama will take your guns"
"We Republicans are fiscal conservatives"
"We in the Republican Party stand for reducing the size of the federal government"
"Social Security is going broke"
"Death Panels"
"Government takeover of health care"
"IRS collecting personal healthcare data"
"Doctors are being forced to ask people about their sex lives."
"Everyone's healhcare information will be leaked to the world"
"Anyone who believes in income inequality is just jealous of success"
"Tax Cuts Pay for Themselves"
"Taxing the rich will slow economic growth" "Cutting taxes on the rich creates jobs"
"The Rich Pay Too Much in Taxes Already"
"Hillary Clinton denied security for Benghazi"
"Obama personally approved spying on German Chancellor"

There we have it...a very small list of Rethugs rambling on and on and on...desperate to fill the air with so much nonsense that the truth will be hard to find. Silly twits.

Surveying the GOP wreckage
A survey of the wreckage reveals a GOP blamed for the dysfunction, seen as both uncompromising and unprincipled and having earned the title of “most unpopular major political party in the history of U.S. polling.”
Public distaste for congressional Republicans is palpable.
Start with the Fox News poll last week that found 75 percent disapproving of the job Republicans in Congress are doing and just 20 percent approving. Fox has been asking the question since 2005, and disapproval never exceeded 60 percent until late 2011. Now standing at a record 75 percent, it is 9 points higher than it was just two months ago.
Lest you assume it’s simply a plague on everyone’s house, disapproval of Republicans in Congress is 12 points higher than that for their Democratic colleagues, while approval is 13 points lower.
Other polls are in the same record neighborhood.
In a recent CBS poll, 78 percent disapproved of the way congressional Republicans are handling their job. Quinnipiac pegged the number at 74 percent, matching a record high for the poll.
Pew, looking at attitudes toward Republican leaders in Congress, found 72 percent disapproving. From 1997, when Pew first asked the question, until 2011, disapproval never exceeded 60 percent.
None of these polls suggest deep affection for congressional Democrats, but in every case they are much more highly regarded than their GOP counterparts.
The Republican Party itself has also achieved record heights of unpopularity.
In the Fox News poll, 63 percent harbored unfavorable views, with just 30 percent reacting favorably. Unfavorables for the GOP are the highest ever recorded and 16 points higher than the average over the Fox poll’s lifetime. And while voters are now unfavorable rather than favorable to Republicans by a 33-point margin, for Democrats that margin is just 9 points.
I could go on citing the record level of unfavorables for the GOP — 64 percent in a CNN poll, 63 percent in an ABC/Washington Post poll and 62 percent for Gallup — but, suffice to say, never in the history of polling has either party been seen unfavorably by as many voters as the Republicans are today.

The whole idea about universal health care working as being half way affordable is by EVERYONE being on it. Especially those healthy 20 somethings, that is what drives the costs down. It works EVERYWHERE else that way around the world, yet the only country that didn't have it, the good ole USA had the highest medical costs by as much as a third over everyone else. Now that is just BS, not only that medicine costs twice as much too, why do you think people do the drug runs to Mexico & Canada to fill their scripts. If you think this system is something you need to defend even shutdown government over is beyond belief.
With age comes wisdom.

"U.S. pilot scares off Iranians with ‘Top Gun’-worthy stunt

By Douglas Ernst
The Washington Times
Thursday, September 19, 2013

The U.S. Air Force has a message for Iran: Don’t mess with our drones.

In what only can be described as a scene out of Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun,” Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, Air Force chief of staff, describes how F-22 stealth jets scared off Iranian jets from a U.S. drone flying in international airspace.

The Aviationist reports that in March a U.S. MQ-1 drone came close to being intercepted by an Iranian F-4 Phantom combat plane, but the Iranian aircraft stopped short after a warning by an American pilot.

“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go home,’” Gen. Welsh said.

According to The Aviationist, the Iranians came within 16 miles of the drone.

If you have proof that someone has been denied security clearnance because they were recieiving MH services (other than for a psychotic disorder), I would love to see it.
so, no clerks who work in your office or similar offices ever gossip...nobody ever sees a patient walking into or out of a psychiatric office...nobody ever runs into someone they know at your office...nobody at the pharmacy ever talks about patient medications...

if your employer finds out, its just a matter of time before they find an excuse to dump you...
