I'm going to give you the same chance I gave Pumbaa to not be a moron when talking with me. You can call it socialism or any other fcuking thing you want but it doesn't change the fact that when poor people need healthcare we pay for it...one way or another. On what planet is it OK to spend 5 times as much to provide the same services?
You're going to give me a chance? LMFAO. Don't forget that you need your oxygen mask for altitudes over 10,000. You already have that head in position to stem nose bleeds. And, might I remind you that name calling is the first stage of concession. Hey, it only hurts for awhile.:< ))))

So, millions of uninsured and indigent people use hospital emergency rooms for primary care and yet the hospitals stay in business...I wonder how that happens.

Fine, dumbass it is.

Millions? Ya think? No, that's the number of paying customers with cancelled policies to pay for your indigent people. Get it, yet? The hospitals don't care where the money comes from. Let's take it from those old fcukers. For as long as we can. Socialism. No doubt.

Doesn't matter...still uninsured.

If your girlfriend got her way public schools would have closed long ago. With your attitude, county hospitals can't be too far behind. As for indigents, they're not mine they're ours and something has to be done to contain costs we already pay.

Yup. So the Gov't dictates that we take it from the payers, personally, and give it to the takers. Just a little more intrusion on our choices. Who cares, right? I DO! You keep rolling over.

Sorry. I had to break for lunch. No food stamps to help. Our taxes pay for schools, police, fire protection, etc. Pretty even across the board. Bigger the home, larger the taxes. That's a given. So WTF are you talking about, Mr. Deflector? This is something totally different. Your ilk are telling people that their insurance coverage is cancelled for a myriad of reasons. Have you seen the "extras" that disqualify a policy that doesn't meet the Obama criteria? Who the fcuk wants them anyway? I never even heard of them. This is a Gov't takeover of the most important choice we have. Not only are YOU the dumass but YOU have that pointy head up your asz.

Schools, police, fire, HOSPITALS...

The chef believes that it's unfair for a senior who's obviously beyond fertility to pay for maternity coverage she'll never use. It does seem ridiculous but by that logic, I'd have opted out of supporting public schools the moment my kids graduated. Do they give you that option in Connecticut...to opt out? I ask because somebody took that choice away from Floridians a long time ago.

You're right, this is pretty close to the exact opposite of the law Americans deserve but it is the result of our process so we're stuck with it. I'm writing a letter to my congressman and you should too. They should know we know they've wasted the last three years.

Save the stamp. That letter holds as much weight as our posts here. Nobody gives a sh!t. In answer to your sarcastic question, we would not opt out after the kids graduated from school. Again, personal property taxes have nothing to do with the Government takeover of our Health Insurance choices. You keep flinging it against the wall though if it makes you feel good. As for your "maternity" remark attributed to Chef, maternity has always been part of the coverage. There's other things less likely to be chosen if it were OUR choice. Read the ten commandments of the Obama Care Package and tell me why I would want all ten. Doofus.

Do you know who said that???? Suprise. Yep, America is in good hands with obummer and co.

Muslim DHS adviser Mohamed Elibiary says Muslim Brotherhood "like Evangelicals"
Yes, aside from the burning of churches and terrorizing of opponents, the Evangelicals are pretty much exactly like the Brotherhood. You got to hand it to Mohamed Elibiary: this is the kind of analytical acuity that we need at DHS.

"Muslim Brotherhood 'just like evangelicals,'

He’s done it again.

Department of Homeland Security adviser Mohamed Elibiary has penned yet another controversial tweet, this time likening the Muslim Brotherhood to evangelical Christians and comparing the Brotherhood’s indoctrination to Bible study groups.

WND found that Elibiary tweeted:“Ignorant #Islamophobes (redundant I know) protested my saying #MB like #Evangelicals. Usra like Bible study grp.”

The “MB,” or Muslim Brotherhood, seeks a worldwide Islamic caliphate ruled by Shariah, or Islamic law, and teaches followers to help establish an Islamic state wherever they live.

An usra is a small teaching group devised by Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna to indoctrinate his followers. Brotherhood leaders form weekly meetings to teach the Islamist group’s methods and ideology.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Ikhwanweb website describes usra as the “smallest unit of MB structure which represents the practical area of MB spiritual education and Tarbiah (training).”...

I couldn't for the life of me decide why you wouldn't.

http://beautifulletters-bls.blogspot.com/2011...

Didn't you mean to say you "could not" opt out (because you can't)? And didn't you mean to say you gave up control over your healthcare choices when you accepted Medicare? And doesn't Medicare A offer maternity coverage because even though the vast majority of recipients are over 65, there are some younger people who are on the program?

So many questions...

Yes. Many silly ones. You asked the "opt" out question. I merely stated that I wouldn't. That means that given that some old folks paid for my kids education I have to pay it forward. And no, I didn't give up control of my choices of healthcare because there are many plans and options out their to choose from. Well I mean there WERE. And, really who gives fcuk about maternity care at this stage of the game? Any plan I ever owned had maternity care. Yes, so many silly questions from somebody who already knows the real answers.

But it's not that you wouldn't, it's that you can't...nobody can. Our kids graduating high school does not annul our citizenship. We're still responsible for our share of the bill for municipal services.

Remember the Social Security lock-box? It never happened. If we don't drastically alter the face of health care in this country, Social Security will go bankrupt and then you'll be crying about how the gummint gave it to you and then took it away. How you worked for it all your life and then Obama comes along and steals it. How close do we need to come to that disaster before people do something about it?

Not in my lifetime, nor yours. I been listening to those dire predictions since I had a memory. Took a few decades off for being high, but nothing changed. The gummint taking it away SS is as probable as YesShitCan's prediction of those Russian Missiles. He's a loon from the loony state. 8>)

Like I said. Not in my lifetime or yours. And, who gives a sh!t about the "alarming" rate of disappearing glaciers? Does that affect the cost rhubarb? Worry about things you can do something about. Like, get get rid of this Sambobama Cork Soaker and his whole entourage as soon as possible and attempt to undo whatever damage he has done. It's not too late. Is it? Demographics too overwhelming? Too many takers? I can dream.

Have you shopped rhubarb lately?

You may be older than me but I bet you can make it to 2007 (when the Medicare deficit began). I have decided to start exercising and watching my diet so I can soak up all three years of my entitlement before SS goes belly up in '17.
