You are one brainless example of the Obama fanbase. This post proves just how distracted & uninformed you are.
Maybe if you took the time to KNOW what the Republican Party leaders are doing you wouldn't sound so stupid. You get information from sources designed to make you happy so you will tune in. Or in the case of Mr. Broun and others telling you the fairytales you believe to get your vote. They are all feeding you a line of BS. Here is a "news" story on what the real Republican Party is thinking, don't know what they will actually do but they know they can't win on a national level dragging you and your friends along. A lot of middle of the road Republicans have bailed on the Party since the Tea Party fiasco, myself included.

I've never seen anything posted from you to indicate you would be a republican(read conservative), but have seen you post many things to indicate you are a democrat(read liberal.)

Wrong, he is just using his common sense for a change, maybe trying to make up a little for ruining the economy. Its the RIGHT thing to do. You want to call it an amnesty bill when its not, that make you feel smart? Every letter you type points to the obvious conclusion as to why you dislike Mexicans. You know why and so does anyone with common sense. They go to work and work from sun up to sun down doing things Anglo's won't do anymore. They have built themselves into a community, they go to school, to church, raise their kids, pay taxes and even fight in the military for this country, and you just can't stand that.

Read what you want, you are somewhat correct. I was a repug, never a dem and now a person who sits in the middle and votes for what
in my opinion is the right thing to do.
Not because of some political party or what some talking head tells me to do. Sometimes I am liberal, sometimes conservative depending on a lot of different things. But NEVER a blind closed minded Tea Party Republican trying to push my beliefs on the world. That's what you are, you had your minute of fame on
a national level and now its almost gone, get over it. You will still rule the rural areas of the south until the younger generation and Hispanics outnumber you, and that time is coming fast. The Republican party will in the end back immigration reform, if only to survive. The economy is recovering from the Bush years and Obama will be gone, we will again prosper in spite of folks like you.

Aggie, you just have to consider what kind of person would push those silly judgment icons as his/her only response to your post. This person saw first, your name and then your link, Fox News. This person may even be jealous of your ability to articulate your thoughts without cut and paste nor non-stop repetition. Then, there is Fox News, you know, the network that dares to question or criticize the Dear Leader, Obama.

The term "hero" is over-used in this country. The man who saved a little girl from drowning, then lost his life is a true American hero. But, there are those who believe Chris Collins, the NBA player who recently came out as gay was called a true American hero. Obama even called the guy on the phone and told him how much he admired Collin's courage and referred to him as a hero. Then there is Eric Snowden and Private Manning both of whom have been called heroes.
So, Aggie, the idiot who pushed those buttons was unwittingly paying you a compliment, a compliment which is richly deserved.
I suspect that there are many "kinds" of people who "push those silly judgment icons" as their only response to what they consider an inane post not worthy of reply. I also suspect there are people who post negative judgments based solely on their dislike for the poster irrespective of what was posted. It is very possible that those who provide negative judgments are jealous of the poster's ability to articulate a thought, or angery because their foolishness has been demonstrated via cut and paste, or simply fed up with being constantly reminded that they voted and supported such an obvious liar.

Then, there is Fox News, you know, the network that never dared to question or criticize the Dear Leader, Bush.

You are right, the term hero is over used, or maybe it's just a matter of being told who the heroes are, as if we couldn't see the heroism in others for ourselves. Giving one's life for another is a selfless act of heroism, just as taking an unpopular stand is a sign of courage which is another aspect of heroism. But when these acts of courage are performed in the political arena it should be expected that such acts will have their supporters and detractors, both of whom may use "those silly judgment icons" as a response to a post.

<quoted text>And if that happens be prepared to wait months for doctor's appts, months for diagnostic scans, months for procedures and be prepared for bureaucrats to tell you that you are not a viable candidate for the procedure/surgery/medication that you need or "that you know what, maybe this isn’t going to help. Maybe you’re better off, uhh, not having the surgery, but, uhh, taking the painkiller" as Obama told one woman in regard to her elderly mother getting a pacemaker.
Isn't it amazing how Americans, who don't have socialized medicine, keep pontificating about how bad socialized medicine is,
while,
the dozens of industrialized countries who have had socialized medicine for decades treasure it so much that none has ever been willing to give it up.

The Right Wing prayer to their God, Unregulated Capitalism reads, in part:

"Dear Lord of Profits, we believe in maintaining the most inefficient health care system in the world because it diverts health care funds that should ho to providing health care to profit-taking at every level of service, creating billions and billions in profits to the appointed few,(those You find deserving). at incredible expense to our country, ourselves, and our children,( whom you find undeserving).

We believe in a system that is the costliest on Earth, results in tens of millions of our countrymen and their children's illness and death, for no reason other than the personal profit of the "deserving" few.

We thank you Lord for a system that rewards and maximizes profits for Insurance Companies, by encouraging the highest costs possible and providing the least care.

We thank you Lord that the system, by preventing competition and doctors and by allowing doctors to overprescribe tests to be conducted at the doctors' facilities, creates the second highest income level in America, second only to Healthcare Insurers' CEOs.

We believe it is better to increase profits for others, than efficiently provide medical care for ourselves and our children.

Amen"

The Right Wing love affair with their "free market" fantasy - even when something is working so well for the rest of the world- rather than take advantage of what works - their fantasy requires they keep the expensive, inefficient system that is literally killing them and their children.

Read my above post about Obamacare.

And Aggie is correct. I have friends in England who wait months on end to get medical procedures done. Also months for Doctor's appointments. The only quick medical service rendered there is an emergency.
Why do Right Wingers never tell the "whole truth"

Having been to England a half dozen times myself - I noted that people in England love the government run National Health Service.

If you want to commit career suicide as a politician in England - just propose doing away with the National Health Service.

Why not tell Americans how much the countries with government run health services love them and would never give them up ?

Wait ..... never mind.

Good observation about Bush.

Bush is even more of a corporate tool than Obama.

More illegals in the country increases profits by depressing wages and benefits for the average working American - so big businesses love 'em.

Right Wing Wacko Bush, and Right Wing Obama, and Right Wing Clinton (remember NAFTA), are doing what their owners ... er contributors, instruct them to do.

Thank God we destroyed the unions that would have fought to keep illegal out, eh ?

I don't care who you support or where you get your info. Your opinion of me means absolutely nothing. NADA. I was supporting Aggie in her statement about someone stooping so low to judge her comment about the good samaritan becoming paralyzed, then dying after rescuing the child from drowning... You think you're a psychic (and a very bad one, indeed) by so boldly stating I get my news, "from sources designed to make you happy" & what I don't know about the republican party. I could say the same about you, not knowing anything about Obama & his corrupt administration. You have no idea where I get my news. If you were a regular poster, you'd KNOW I post more liberal links than conservative links, to prevent anyone from making a STUPID accusation as to where I get my news. Read back a few hundred pages & CATCH UP, you're way, way behind.... If it's a personal thing, you can whine, whine some more, & keep on whining, I ain't going anywhere. Just so ya know.

Has it ever entered your mind that, logically speaking, 90% of the Republicans cannot be "RINOs" ?

Rather,for better or worse, the remaining 10% must be the "RINOs".

Just sayin...

Great post.

In the New America, a/k/a the "Homeland", where Karl Rove and Gang of UberElite, and the Political and Religious Taliban, push the philosophy that "Liberal", "Moderate", and "Progressive" are "evil" - defensiveness reigns supreme.

Having studied history, religious and political, and having visited some 30 countries over the years, the "Homeland" is closer to fascism now than at time since the Civil War.

As billionaire and patriot Warren Buffett stated, there is an ongoing war against the Middle Class - and the Middle Class is losing.

But as long as working Americans keep supporting those take away their political rights and economic protections its really the working class devouring itself.

Just keep voting for the same people, under the same circumstances, and act surprised when you obtain the same results.

Manning, Assange, and Snowden risked their very lives to reveal the government's illegal and Unconstitutional violations of Americans basic rights.

Now those are heroes.

But, notice how quickly the very people who benefited from their sacrifices attack them.

That's sad.
