So, charging people more for their insurance just because they had the misfortune to get sick is OK with you? That's disgusting.
As disgusting as food corporations that make obscene profits from the sale of a basic human necessity? Food is a right!

As disgusting as tuition rates that keep 18-26 year old 'children' in debt for the most productive years of their lives? Education is a right!

Free food stamps and college degrees for all! Heck, throw in free housing too as shelter is a basic human right! How dare these massive institutions profit off of our 'children' who don't even have a government job yet?

Have to go watch Rand Paul talk about the class action lawsuit against Obama's NSA spying on Hannity that I recorded earlier.

Besides, dem is out of control. Probably too much excitement. Makes him more hyper.

It would seem from an other world perspective that humankind is slowly deteriorating. Too many have lost a moral compass and stopped believing in something greater than themselves. Like little lost sheep who do very stupid things.
We shouldn't wonder what happened to common sense and having a perspective.

People are trying to figure out if the author of this Rolling Stone article was trying (emphasize trying to be funny) or if he is serious (seriously mental would be included)

". Guaranteed Work for Everybody

Unemployment blows. The easiest and most direct solution is for the government to guarantee that everyone who wants to contribute productively to society is able to earn a decent living in the public sector.
[...]
2. Social Security for All

But let’s think even bigger. Because as much as unemployment blows, so do jobs. What if people didn’t have to work to survive?
[...]
3. Take Back The Land

Ever noticed how much landlords blow? They don’t really do anything to earn their money. They just claim ownership of buildings and charge people who actually work for a living the majority of our incomes for the privilege of staying in boxes that these owners often didn’t build and rarely if ever improve.
[...]
4. Make Everything Owned by Everybody

Hoarders blow. Take, for instance, the infamous one percent, whose ownership of the capital stock of this country leads to such horrific inequality.

Has to be satire - not even the dumbest left winger would suggest that absurd pablum. Apparently no one told this literary genius that life "blows", then you die.

Obamacare was written by Dems and passed without any Rep votes.
It is the Dem's boondoggle
Extract on article claim that the ACA was “rammed through” Congress without deliberation or debate, part of a pattern of Obama failing to negotiate with Congress. Well, I knew that was a lie, and I said so to Tyler and host Karen Finney. In fact, the ACA was the result of more than a year of congressional committee hearings in which progressive ideas like single payer or a public option were jettisoned, and hundreds of GOP amendments to the law were accepted, in exchange for zero Republican votes. Sen. Max Baucus, in particular, drove an eight-month bipartisan process via the Senate Finance Committee in which he and ranking Republican Chuck Grassley held dozens of hearings, released joint “policy option” papers and finally presided over 31 meetings lasting 60 hours with the so-called “Gang of Six”– Baucus and Grassley plus Kent Conrad, D-N.D., Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.— to try to hammer out a compromise that would attract GOP support.

Well, if that's true, among liberals, you were in a small minority who didn't bash Bush 24/7 every single day of his entire eight years in office.
Clinton's policies seemed to work only because he followed the lead of his Republican-controlled Congress for the last six years of his two terms.
You're right about GHW Bush except we did the Kurds a terrible disservice that bothers me until this day.
We've never had a president in our nation's history who truly believed it was all about him and his personal vision for this country. Who was unqualified with so little leadership experience and so far left that his every decision was directed by that radicalism rather than the best interest of the country. Who didn't lie to the American people about extremely significant issues to win a reelection. Who has a past filled with inconsistencies and kept tightly under wraps.
So we have good reason to gripe about this president and the direction of the country and where he is leading us. He's been a disappointment to both conservatives and his own party.
Wrong again Carol, most people were behind Bush in the aftermath of 9/11 but we began to turn against him when revelations of his duplicity started to surface. We found out that he had been warned about the imminent attacks and did nothing to prevent them. We found out that his rational for waging war on Iraq was based on lies and fabrications. We discovered that his appointees to important government positions like FEMA director were made not by expertise in the field but by political connections.
As for the direction this country should be headed in, I certainly don't want it going where the GOP seems to want it to head; a corporate plutocracy with a right wing theocratic tilt.
And yes, in some ways I and other liberals are disappointed in the President. We were hoping for someone more progressive.
In so called inconsistencies in his past only exist in hate warped right wing minds.

Hey STUPID!

That is BS to the max. You Demon-c-RATS simply politicized the wars, being the anti-American sleazebags that you are.

You started way early with Afghanastan being a "quagmire" and then had to back off when you looked like idiots.

Here is a video of you Commies pushing for the war in Iraq:



Liar!!!!

You on the NAZI fascist left are so duped & dishonest.

How's your Glow Bull Warming, idiot? A record cold temperature was set at Hartford/Bradley Airport of -9 degrees this morning, moron.

One of you Nutjobs libs were on a roll yesterday (dem)- likely Ghost of some retard like that - pretty sure the moron was on Pacific time.

Are liberals/Democrats demonstrably mentally ill?

We have heard liberalism (aka Democrat-ism) described as a mental illness. A little research seems to prove this observation. You need not be a goateed psychiatrist with a German accent to conclude liberals/Democrats are anti-social misfits. See for yourself; see how well liberalism/Democrat-ism fits into the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) criteria for identifying the mentally maladjusted.


While we usually think of “Psychopaths” as the occasional notorious serial killers, they are more common than we imagine.

Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats or independents to rate their mental health as excellent, according to data from the last four November Gallup Health and Healthcare polls. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans report having excellent mental health, compared to 43% of independents and 38% of Democrats.

No surprise here! I think the number for Democrats is actually much lower, as they are inherently dishonest, most didn't admit their condition.

No, you are wrong.

Everyone stood with Bush including going to get Bin Laden on Afghanistan.

He lost that support when we learned he lied to go into Iraq.

He lost that support when he declared Bin Laden irrelevant & abandoned Afghanistan & turned it into a quagmire.

You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.
