Well, your TEApublican-majority Congress voted to give it to him! So, who's fault is it, really? It's the House of Representatives that vote on all things concerning Money and YOU voted THEM into office! If you've got a problem with that, it's because THEY screwed you over, AGAIN! You'll learn one of these days...MAYBE!
Oh Sweet Pea.Oh Honey Babe.You seem to forget I voted for" Change We Can Believe In".This guy is nothing but a con man,a pupet for his money masters as most are.He conned his way in on lies.
I told you I did not vote this time because I'm fed up with the BS that comes out of DC.
The people better come up with a solution because this country and life itself is in big trouble.
You can go on and on about Tea Pubs but he is no better.
I'm going to learn one of these days? I learned after I saw he was telling lies about everything that he said he was for or against so he did not get my vote the 2nd time around.
In my book that's learning.

So by extension, we all should have followed your lead and sat at home instead of voting. That would have put Mitt in the White House and SOMEHOW this would solve all of our problems right ? That would have magically "come up with a solution" ! Yep that's the ticket.

The solution is government ran hospitals for the poor. Optional hospitals. There would need only be enough of them to serve those without insurance, and the poor who cant afford it.
There is no need for Obamacare, which is rebuilding the old Soviet Union.
Its like a situation where a band aid (government poor hospitals) are needed, we wrap somebody up like a mummy (Obamacare).
Obamacare is 50 pounds of the wrong medicine to cover a half-ounce sized problem.
Its just a convenient excuse for a socialist takeover.
There are between 45 and 50 MILLION uninsured Americans in this country right now. Many of those people are the sickest individuals who EVENTUALLY (after they have declared bankruptcy and divested themselves of most of their life's posessions) end up being covered by Medicaid which is government (taxpayer) funded healthcare. How many of these "optional hospitals" would we need to service those millions of uninsured Americans AND the group that are Medicaid eligable ? What would be the cost to the treasury ?
While you might, I do not find 50 million of our fellow citizens who have no health insurance to be a "half-ounce sized problem". The same argument you are making was made over Medicare a few decades ago. I don't know a single senior citizen who wants to do away with Medicare, and I suspect you don't either.

You never asked me - I thought you were asking another poster.
Prayer in school is not even what I've been posting about, rather the false argument that the use of public property for religious services - whatever religion that may be - is somehow 'unconstitutional'.
Well when you responded to my post 76103 which was about school prayer....I thought you were commenting on....school prayer ! Sorry.

It was not entirely on school prayer - I was responding to this:

"It is forcing your prayers, and your nativity scenes and your beliefs on others and onto PUBLIC property that has been found unconstitutional."

In addition, further on you post:

"It is forcing your prayers, and your nativity scenes and your beliefs on others and onto PUBLIC property that has been found unconstitutional. If you wish to have organized school prayer there are a great many, good Christian schools out there, but the public schools are called public for a reason."

Are Christians not a part (most of the time the vast majority) of the 'public'- and pay taxes for said property?

This is infuriating. There is a business that wants to open in Chattanooga providing jobs - and...A lobbyist for Ole Smoky Moonshine, a distillery in Gatlinburg, could have caused the delay of HB 102, which would allow leaders of Chattanooga Whiskey Company to make their product in Hamilton County.

Are you actually advocating a majority rule on allowing religious displays and prayer o public property ?

How does that same sentence sound when I substitute a single word in it ?
"Are" WHITES "not a part (most of the time the vast majority) of the 'public'-and pay taxes for said property ?" Should whites have the only say in what happens on public property based on that ?
That was THE argument going on in this country a copule of generations ago, and that one wasn't found constitutional either.

I did not want either one of them and I just could not vote anymore for the lesser of two evils.
How many more years will we continue to vote for these people who continue to do for the benefit of those who bribe them.
They will vote for Monsanto's benefit because that is where the money is.
Screw the farmers,screw that GM crops are devoid of nutrition,screw that they cause sterility, screw that they cause tumors, screw that they cause organ damage, screw that they are killing the bees, screw that they are contaminating the water supplies,screw that they are taking over life itself for power and profit
and destroying that system of life that has been unfolding on this place we call home.
This same thing goes on in the cancer industry,the fracking,on and on
where ever you look.
I think we the people better come up with another plan because it will not happen with the system we have now.
So instead of the Dems did this or the Pubs do this they all need to go.

Well, I am not going to disagree with any of that, with ONE exception. I am not willing to cede my vote for the lesser of two evils to some who would vote for the person I see as the greater of two evils. If I stay home in protest, I do NOTHING to change the trajectory of policy, and I will never do that. There is no "perfect" candidate who agrees with me on all issues and there never will be.

The Founding Fathers began drafting the Declaration and the Constitution in a, gasp, tavern. Does that mean they were drunks?

American Muslims pay taxes. Should they then be allowed to hold their religious services in federal buildings? I'm betting if they proposed this, the righties would suddenly reinterpret the 1st Amendment to prevent this.

Some on the right are quite concerned with what the founders thought about religion when the penned the text about freedom of religion, since they believe document is frozen in a time, over 200 years ago... but ask them if semi-automatic weapons and 30 round clips were contemplated when the founders penned the second amendment and you get a resounding YES !! Priceless !

It is not a matter of them agreeing on all issues.They have one issue and it's themselves and giving to the bribers what they want which in turn gives them what they want.Power and a good job down the road.
That insider trading is real sweet, and they gave that right to themselves.Isn't that sweet?
How can you continue to vote without taking a barf bag to the voting booth?

Absolutely correct..the "righties" would, but not through re-interpretation, through the power of "rights" granted unto "citizenship"! What a novel idea!

While jefferson was President of the United States, America fought the islamic terrotrist for over a decade, costing sixteen percent of America's economy.

America's "righties" DO oppose allowing the islamists worshipping their false/pagan god in any federal building because we righties" don't want American women murdered when they wear make-up, blue jeans, lip-stick, or one day profess the true God of creation!

The acclaimed "god" of these misled fanatics was a medieval war-lord who died approximately five hundred years after Jesus Christ was crucified, and after his murderous followers redacted the Old Testiment in what is known by scholars as the most profound act of plagiarism in history.

Yes, the rock-dwellers were too stupid to create an attractive narrative on their own so they plagiarized the Old Testament, contorting the story-line into an absurd mess, obvious to anyone with student reading ability and common sense. They would have considered you one of their very own.

I don't fully understand what drives your hatred for America, but I will contribute to an earnest effort to secure necessary financing for your timely departure!

But by the time obamacare is fully implemented, about 60million will not have healthcare nor a job. Then us taxpayers can keep them up. OK,,, what happens when they run out of my money, they still have all the ones that don't work. Maybe they can put them to work.

In the world according to "Willard", the concept of freedom of religion only guarantees the freedom of his religion. Freedom for all other religious beliefs are not guaranteed to Americans. After all God is on his side.....

Ya know, Nuh_, we were posting about this issue about a month ago, and I thought that since the Commissioners of Hamilton County approved the manufacture of liquor in Hamilton County it was a done deal.
But now you have this new coalition "Let Hamilton Distill", which wants an election, "to permit the manufacture of intoxicating liquors and other intoxicating drinks within the boundries of Hamilton County, Tennessee.
If it does go to the voter all they will see is, "MANUFACTURE OF INTOXICATING LIQUORS IN HAMILTON COUNTY".
Now when any good old Christian Conservative has a choice to vote on this......they will vote it down, no matter how many jobs in Hamilton county will be lost.......and Chattanooga Whisky will still be sold in Chattanooga but made elsewhere.

I guess you didn't notice that there has been an increase in unemployed Americans since the beginning of the great recession, and the last time I checked, unemployment benefits do not include health insurance coverage. Not to mention the FACT that companies have been cutting back on health insurance coverage for employees for years.
The fact that there is less and less employer based health insurance coverage for employees, might be the reason why Romney instituted a program in Mass. that looked remarkably like Obamacare.
