Meanwhile, my taxes will be unchanged by the inclusion of a national insurance program because I'll no longer be supporting the lowly have-nots at the emergency room. Of course, there's no telling how it will balance with the future victims of poor nutrition since we've started taking the food (stamps) out of babies' mouths. How long do you suppose it will take until malnutrition related health problems overtake the supposed savings from cutting a benefit that effects mostly young mothers and their children?
Some day people will realize that we already pay the money and that our only real choice is in how it's spent. Meanwhile, we can make a game out of spotting the first baby with scurvy...fun huh?
I guess there are nutrients in Pork Rinds, Barb-B Cue Chips and Colt 45 Malt. Never thought about that. You're so smart and caring.

Knowing how selecting certain sentences from your posts get your diaper in a knot, so I culled out this gem. How do you think your statement squares with that little tidbit from uziís latest spam?

(Uzi) You mean that 65 million
low-information voters who don't pay taxes and get free stuff from
taxpayers

meÖ."13 Million new voters and the economy will be booming due to all the loans the workers took to pay their taxes to support the "havenots".

(you) Meanwhile, my taxes will be unchanged by the inclusion of a national insurance program because I'll no longer be supporting the lowly have-nots at the emergency room.

As that 65 Million swells to triple digit millions and the taxpayer base shrinks you will remain unscathed?

I think throwing those babies out with the bathwater is a really good start.

I guess we all travel in different spam circles. Just today I've read poll results showing Obama with the lowest approval rating among all US Presidents. I've read accusations that Obamacare is not failing but rather succeeding in it's actual, nefarious goal of destroying the middle class. It's also been suggested that we are slack for not having impeached him yet.

I am pissing distance from full-time retirement. That means I'm almost a professional taker...a consumer of government largesse. I'm not quite sure how the transition goes but I bet it's worse if I start out biting the hand that's going to feed me.

I look at as accrual for my lifetime of work. As I am still laboring to support my lavish life style it's kind of nice to know that once a month I get to double dip my beak. I just realized that I neglected to get my truck's bi-annual emission test and the cost is double for being late. I'm not even mad that the DMV failed to notify me. My medical co-pays are double. Prescription are up. If it wasn't for my generous monthly stipend, I probably would have taken the gas by now. You'll adapt. Think, somewhere in the third week of the month is a smiley day.
