Chris.. The fact that the money is coming out of a surplus from a fund that is 4 background checks might be a bit upsetting to legal gun owners, but SB 140 doesnt seem so bad. What is it that bothers you about it? Seems to me that getting guns out of the hands of bad guys and crazy people would be a good thing.

John, I know you don't like fox news, but doesn't this and all obama's policy start to form a pattern for you? http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/10/03/un-br...
Chtis, I occasionallywatch Fox. I.like O Rielly, liked Hannity abd Combs, dont like Hannity, and get a kick out of Fox and Friends in.the morning. Gotta admit that at times I yell at them, but mostly find them amusing.
Thearticle had a lot of uns in them (un named plans, unplanned summit, uncleaar goals, etc and after checking it out I found it true. Thanks for the link, it was interesting. Im not sure what I think aboug it though. I like the ideas of feeding kids, violence against women, and global warming. But I wonder if the countries that really matter will be on board. The MiddleEast wont like the rights 4women,. The developing countries wont like the global warming or child labor ideas. I think that those 2 issues in themselves will doom the plan.

Ask yourself these questions; ... Are we better off having our allies mad at us ? Are we better off being the laughing stock of the whole world ? Are workers better off having their hours reduced to less than thirty hours a week ? Are we better off by paying for healthcare for able bodied people and illegal aliens ? Are we better off placing more people on welfare and food stamps instead of making an all out, no holds barred effort to increase jobs for American born workers ? Are we better off letting illegal aliens take American jobs or should we have welfare recipients do the jobs Americans won't do ? Are we better off as a nation since Obama took office ? I don't think so

Good morning Chris! Boy you sure have a lot of
questions for me. But before I begin, I want to.know why you dont like SB 140. The gun thing. Ok here we go. Some allies are mad at us for the NSA leaks. The spying began after 9/11, it just didnt happen in the last 5 yrs. The good that might come out of this, is some allies will now be included in the non spying pact that now only covers the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. Its really hard to blame PBO for causing it. Other allies are mad because we didnt get involved in Syria or the rest of the Mideast. U know how I feel about that already. 2. We are a laughing stock mainly because of the recent debt fiasco. U csn blame congress 4 that.

Chris.. 3. The 30 hr work week is occurring with small companies. The ACA exempts companies with less than 50 employees, and has given large companies a yr extension. There may be some places that fall in between the 2 that are cutting hrs, but I dont think it will happenuntil after Jan 1 2014. 4. Yes we need more jobs. In 2010 the congress ran on a jobs platform. A jobs bill passed the Senate but it has died in the house. This bill was for improveme.tn infrastructure, education, and research. The house has worked on defunding, ending, or delaying the ACA over 40 times.

Chris.. They have also had votes on abortions and piecemal issues like the Ledbetter act, Fsrm bill, and the shutdown issues. The 1 area that they did well on was naming post offices.
5. Healthcare. You do realize that we all pay forpeople who go to the ER, right. Hospitals add money to all of our bills to cover these people. Havi.g more people insured, and taxing those who are not is supppsed to off set those charges. Under the current system illegals are treatedlike everyone else. 6. The illegals are working because employers are hiring them. There should be better enforcement to stop this exploitation, and large fines issued to those that hire the illegals. This too has been going on for years as well. Stop giving illegals jobs and the problem will end.

Chris.. The illegal issue is very complex. Rounding them all up and sending them home would be financially and logisticly impossible. Letting them stay here wouldnt be fair to those that are doing it the right way. Deportingthe criminals is good, giving driver licenses is bad. Food stampz for their legal kids is good, welfare checks for doing nothing is bad. I really think that welfare receipients should have to do some sort of community service work. Crossing guards, teacher assista.ts, graffiti removal, child care for those doing these services. If they dont show up for work without a dr npte, they lose part of their check. No more just sitting around waiting for their free stuff. This shouldgo for white, brown, black, yellow and red skinned people. And I dont know why it doesnt start happeningthis way.
There I hope that I have answeredur questions.What are your solutions to these issues. I know that we must agree on something.

Chris.. Are things better today? Better than when exactly? The 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s? Better than the Nixon, Carter, Regan, Bush Sr, Clinton, GWB years? Look around the world Chris. There is unrest, hunger, climate change, threat of war and war. Is it worse now than ever? No. Its not the best of times either. I think that every era had its good and bad times. I know ur gonna say that they sre not better, but not better than when. Explain please.

I wanted to let everyone know that earlier today I received my "Obamacare enrollment packet” from the White House.

It contained:

· An aspirin and a band-aid.

· An 'Obama Hope & Change' bumper sticker

· A 'Bush's Fault' yard sign

· A 'Blame Republicans first, then anybody and everybody' poster

· A 'Tax the Rich' banner

· An application for unemployment and a free cellphone

· An application for food stamps

· A prayer rug

· A letter assigning my debt to my grandchildren

· And lastly, a coupon for a machine that blows smoke up my #$%$.

Everything was made in "China" and all directions were in Spanish.
Keep an eye out. Yours should be arriving soon.

Yeah LOL I guess that did sound a little grouchy, Well john actually i'm concerned, i work at a place with just under 50 employee's I currently have good Aetna insurance for me and my wife,its affordable,All i see is horror stories of people loosing their insurance, or their rates going through the roof.I go to Aetna's web site,And mostly What i see, is how the switch to the ACA is going to take place,I haven't heard anything from my employer, or Aetna What's to come next year or 2015,And to be quite honest, i can't afford for my rates to double or tripple.Sorry if I sound a little Bitter, but there was nothing wrong with the insurance I have now,Praying I don't loose it.

Chris.. I understand ur concern and frustration. Honestly, I am a bit upset myself. What I thought started out to be a good idea, seems to be turning to shit right before my eyes. The website rollout problems were understandable, but the idea of people having to give up their insurance and forced into more expensive coverage is utter bullshit. I hope that ur co. will continue to keep u and your wife covered.

To politely dis- agree,nothing the government runs can hold a candle to private industry.This fiasco is them wanting more control,total control is their goal.The 15 million that have no insurance should have been their concern. After spending millions of dollars, all they have is a pile of shit.Rest assured it will get worse as the months pass.Not one of you will think this plan was great when one of new 16,000 IRS agents they've hired is all over you.

Of course your righht. Social Security, medicare the dept of tranportation, defense epa. Private companys could do better. The cdc. And fda. Of coarse we would have clean air and water. Our food supply would be safe because we all know that private compsnys would make sure every thing is just peachy. Its working so well in china. In case yiu cant tell im being snarky.

Thank you!, I think this is a real big issue for millions of Americans,I just don't see how your insurance you have had for 15 years,getting canceled or your rates getting jacked up is a good thing?,And I don't listen to rush, rarely watch fox,but your starting to hear all the fall out,from all the networks.The question I have is If they give Amnesty, and push immigration reform through next,Are we going to see ANOTHER massive increase in rates in the near future??

Just like everything else that the Republicns disagreed with when it first came out social security, medicare, etc...had problems with the system. These are just glitches in the system that will get fixed. On the other hand, The republican a-holes are trying to use this problem (normal) as a way to show face (after they could't and will never stop ObamaCare) These a-holes know that once Obama Care is up and running correctly it will become liked by millions of Americans.(even the fox and rush, lower info. voters) And they don't want that to happen (especially with the 2016 elections around the corner) SO OPEN YOUR EYES, EARS, AND NOSE PLEASE GET INFORMED BY CHANGING THE CHANNEL (FROM FOX AND RUSH) P.S do you want to sound like that other goof ball who only gets his news from fox (Chris)
