A bounty would be nice. I don't get too enthusiastic about eating them, unless it's
a little one. They sure are fun to shoot
though.

It may come to that. A couple of reasons why I don't shoot them for food is that the nasty things will eat anything, including dead and rotting animals.

They also have diseases and parasites. I heard a story about a hog being bitten
by a rattler and the hog was already so toxic that the snake venom didn't harm
the hog.

That's my point tony. We can't tell for sure, but the Texas bashers and/or Obama care fans will try and use whatever stat they can to help their argument, no matter how shaky it is.
You are an idiot. You are obviously someone who has never been in a situation where you, or a loved one were without health care insurance and could not get health care insurance. Well I am someone that is uninsurable. I work full time, at 3 different jobs, 7 days a week. I do not get any state or federal aid of any kind. No food stamps, no housing subsidy, no welfare, no medicaid, nothing, and futhermore I don't expect a hand out. I work hard for my money. But I also have a genetic heart disease that is INCURABLE! I take 18 prescription medications EVERY DAY! I have already had 2 open heart surgeries, and will eventually require a heart transplant or will die waiting for one. Prior to the Obama health care plan, NO INSURANCE COMPANY WOULD TOUCH ME!!!! They would laugh at the very idea of me trying to get medical coverage. So I am currently saddled with 100's of thousands of dollars of medical bills that I will be paying off until I die, and monthly prescription bills that cost me more than housing costs. So until you dare to walk in my shoes, and the shoes of thousands just like me. Keep your ignorant opinions about Obama Care to yourself, because it makes you look even more the fool than you already look!

Well I'm glad you are sticking with the lib play book and starting every conversation off with an insult. Hi, how are you moron? I that how you greet everyone?
I have never said we didn't need health care REFORM, my problem was the govt TAKEOVER of health care. I don't think the govt can run anything edficiently, and I am definitely not comfortable with uncle Sammy running my health care. If you think that it won't turn out like the dysfunctional health care systems in Europe and the rest of the quasi-socialist countries, you are the idiot. YoU know there is a reason why Canadians come to the USA when they get sick, it is because the socialist, govt run health care in Canada is a broken system where an appointment to see the dr can take a year or more. All you ObamaCare fans get ready for "group doctor visits", where you and a few hundred of your close friends get to "see" the doctor. You morons longing for more govt control of your lives are going to be surprised to what you wake up to. A broken, inefficient system that costs an arm and a leg and doesn't cure or treat crsp is our future unless it gets repealed. Of course, we Americans can't push away from the govt teet, never say no to a "free" thing, no matter how much it costs.

I had a friend who passed away about nine months ago waiting for a new heart and guess
what?. He had very good insurance.

I am just about fed up with this lobbyist manufactured crisis with health care.
It's all about the government seizing more
control over our lives and bank accounts.

You came on here last night and blasted all of us out for being insulting. Tonight you
start with an insult, so what's your excuse?. Let me guess. You're an angry
liberal that can't stand opposition to
the leftist agenda, even though the agenda is full of really bad ideas.

No, no matter how this issue turns out, it won't be good. I can understand why some people may think it's a good deal when they
have health issues and no insurance.

Then you have clowns like SUXboy who thinks cramming ObamaCare down everyone's throat will make everyone go along.

My reasons for opposing it are simple.

1. It won't make individual health care better, overall. It will
just create more waiting lines and it will cost more for those
of us who already have insurance.

2. The government can't run any agency or program without running it into bankruptcy.

Do I want the government in charge of my health and bank account?.
How many people are going to suffer financially from an overzealous IRS.

3. The cost of ACA is enough to cause a financial collapse of the
whole country. When the tax cuts expire in 2013, taxpayers will
be shelling out more money. Over half of American families have
already had their savings wiped out in the past three years. How
will they sustain the greater costs from ObamaCare, starting in
2014?. The Federal government is already 15 trillion dollars in
debt.

4. Regardless of the stench from the bench, the individual mandate is Unconstitutional and just plain wrong IMO.

5. Twenty new taxes that we know about are included in this bill.

6. In my opinion, ACA as it stands, is NOT "the right thing to do".

I agree with your "lobbyis manufactured crisis," whole-heartedly. In my humble opinion, one way or another, somebody gets your money once one chooses to engage the healthcare system, be it the government or some profit-driven insurance company. It's too bad we don't have a company that takes what I call the "Walmart approach" to healthcare. That is, the willingness to charge a lower price in exchange for obtaining the lion's share of cudstomers. While you don't get the "whole pie" all at once, you eventually do get it all by accepting smaller slices.

Texas is already so very dependent on federal tax money. Texas is on the federal tax payer welfare program.
Texas has 26% uninsured. Texas has gone completely nuts. It also caps medical malpractice for non economic damages. What has that cap done for health insurance costs? NOTHING.

Texas' health care costs are still rising FASTER than the national average.

This is so simple to understand, Hospitals and insurance companies are in it for the money. Do they care if you live or die? Only if it cost them money. Why? because your health is a business and money talks! Obamacare get more people on medical coverage but is just gonna get worse and worse because insurance and hospitals will always find a loophole to stick it you. Republikans are against obamacare because is the way to put on their kkk hood. If Obama was white and a republikan I bet those that do not like the program be singing a different tune. Obamacare was a republikans idea, Mr Obama had the balls to get it through congress. The only solution is a single payer system but it will never happen because the insurance companies have the republikans in their pockets. so, we have no choice but to keep our fingers cross and hope someday a white obama come along........
