Love health care for all Americas, a Christian Idea
I would love health care for all Americans too. Pretty sure everyone does. Our health care system had gotten so out of whack no one knew how to fix it.

Even the Democrats didn't like Hillary's version of Obamacare for the same reasons the majority of the country didn't like Obama's version. It was too complicated and presented even more problems.

Simplifying the system by lowering costs of health care is the obvious and most common sense approach.

But since when does government do anything using common sense in spite of Republicans offering those kinds of solutions?

More Americans are going to be uninsured under Obamacare. Read some credible sources, man.

Prominent democrats are now backpedaling from this "train wreck" that's about to happen.

Are you always this stubborn when it comes to accepting reality?

More West nostalgia:
GOP congressional candidate Allen West told "tea party" activists that they needed to do more to get accountability from Rep. Ron Klein (D-Fla.).
"Let me tell you what you've got to do," said West, a retired lieutenant colonel. "You've got to make the fellow scared to come out of his house. That's the only way that you're going to win. That's the only way you're going to get these people's attention."

In Search of a New Dred Scott? Kermit Gosnell and the Right-wing Media’s Torture Porn Fixation
In the Right-wing echo chamber, the lurid details about how Kermit Gosnell performed late term abortions are the stuff of a moral panic, where the descriptions fit neatly into pre-existing beliefs about the twin fictions that are “the liberal media” and a “conspiracy” to suppress any discussion of abortion that does not serve the “left-wing” agenda.
The more graphically Kermit Gosnell’s crimes are discussed and detailed, the more powerful the narrative becomes, as it resonates throughout the Right-wing media machine.
The framing of the Kermit Gosnell case by the Right-wing media is pornographic: it is the rough equivalent of a snuff film. There is a prurient fascination with the details of the body, how it can be destroyed, and the various ways that the flesh can be dismembered or hurt. The details are revolting; they are also titillating and exhilarating for those who want to take away women’s reproductive rights, and see such an effort as a moral crusade.
....There is a deep and socially problematic inconsistency here: the destroyed human bodies of American soldiers are removed from sight by the mass media; the broken bodies of American veterans are shunned, hidden away in veteran’s hospitals, others made homeless and thus rendered “invisible” to the public; the victims of American firepower abroad are nameless and faceless in the United States, as their bodies are shattered and immolated by drones, bombs, and bullets. To discuss such realities openly and plainly is considered by some to be “impolitic” or “anti-American.”
Conservatives are especially vulnerable to such norms and habits because of their extreme addiction to the socio-political narcotic known as American Exceptionalism. Many Republicans are obsessed with dead fetuses. But, they are also rather immune to the suffering of adults, teens, children, and babies whose bodies and lives are shattered by American foreign and domestic policy.
In total, the obsession with the specifics of Kermit Gosnell’s deeds by the Right-wing media constitutes a type of “torture porn” best exemplified by Hollywood films like Saw or Hostel.

what a load of crap. wasn't it the awful "Enquirer" that first broke the story of John Edwards? an awful man but media darling who could have ended up president. it was that fixation as well as conservative newspapers continuing to discuss the Monica Lewinsky Clinton scandal--the one Hillary called a right wing conspiracy that finally brought common sense and truth to the public.

'Let me state the obvious. This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News' Brian Williams intoned, "A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh," as he teased a segment on the brouhaha. Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn't make the cut.

You don't have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being "pro-choice" or "pro-life." It's about basic human rights.

The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace...

As with any major news story, Fox is the first to report it. The mainstream media eventually has no choice but to cover it when it becomes too big for them to keep ignoring.
The atrocities - which were horrific - inflicted on born alive full-term babies by this abortion doctor would shed a bad light on abortion and Planned Parenthood.
It's better to keep liberals in the dark on such issues. They might just think for themselves and step out of line.
This is more true than they want to believe. Otherwise, why have the mainstream remained silent on this story?
because they never met an abortionist they didn't like

The lie of gun registries & elimination of private sales between family members, etc.

I guess you think we should just make drunk driving legal. After all, people still drive drunk.

And those seat belts, not everyone wear them, so lets just repel those laws too,.

Some times even the L.A. Times gets it right.
"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

Oh, not so fast! You're doing a super job of self destructing yourselves; and, you have your crazy radio guys to boost you further into extinction:

Minnesota radio host Bob Davis last week said last Friday he would like to personally tell the families in Newtown, Connecticut whose children were murdered to “go to hell.”

On his show Davis & Emmer, which is broadcast by Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130, he attacked the families of those killed in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School for speaking in support of stricter gun laws.

“I have something I want to say to the victims of Newtown, or any other shooting,” Davis said.“I don’t care if it’s here in Minneapolis or anyplace else. Just because a bad thing happened to you doesn’t mean that you get to put a king in charge of my life. I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy, but you know what? Deal with it, and don’t force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss. I’m sick and tired of seeing these victims trotted out, given rides on Air Force One, hauled into the Senate well, and everyone is just afraid — they’re terrified of these victims.”

“I would stand in front of them and tell them,‘go to hell,’” he added.
