Hang in there Poplar Bluff, you aren't bad people for standing up for your rights. This Health Care Bill is going to mess us all up.

I have heard all the wonderful rhetoric by politicians like McCaskill since 1961 and they haven't got it right yet.

I invite you all to go to: www.capitalistrooter.com

and express whatever opinion you may have about Health Reform.

No one is talking about the high cost of pharmacueticals, Doctors visits that cost $75 for a three minute visit or the hospitals charging a patient $45 dollars for a box of Kleenex.

Thats the very reason we need some type of health care reform the hospitils inflate there prices to make up for the people they treat that don't have health ins.You are bitching about having to pay for someone elses health care when we are already doing it!The stuff Rush Limbaugh is spouting,and Sarah Palin talking about a death panel is nothing more then Republican propaganda bullshit.Ignorant people like youself are swallowing it hook line and sinker!

There will always be those who have more and those who have less. There will never be a time when everyone gets exactly the same services, unless the country embraces socialism. There is no reason to work and do well if the government is just going to take a huge chunk to give away. It reduces the incentive to excel. If you know you are going to get the same thing, no matter how hard you work, why work? If nobody works, there is nobody to pay the taxes. I am glad that americans are finally standing up to all the give aways. Enough is enough.

Obama's Biggest Radical

By: Ben Johnson
FrontPageMagazine.com |

When Barack Obama nominated John P. Holdren as his Science Adviser last December 20, the president-elect stated "promoting science isnít just about providing resources" but "ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology."

In nominating John Holdren, his words could scarcely have taken a more Orwellian ring.

Some critics have noted Holdren's penchant for making apocalyptic predictions that never come to pass, and categorizing all criticism of his alarmist views as not only wrong but dangerous.

What none has yet noted is that Holdren is a globalist who has endorsed "surrender of sovereignty" to "a comprehensive Planetary Regime" that would control all the world's resources, direct global redistribution of wealth, oversee the "de-development" of the West, control a World Army and taxation regime, and enforce world population limits.

He has castigated the United States as "the meanest of wealthy countries," written a justification of compulsory abortion for American women, advocated drastically lowering the U.S. standard of living, and left the door open to trying global warming "deniers" for crimes against humanity.

Such is Barack Obama's idea of a clear-headed adviser on matters of scientific policy.

All of these positions are consistent with a man who began his career as a "dissident scientist.

Holdren gave a clear indication of his philosophical views in the 1977 book Ecoscience, which he co-authored with Paul and Anne Ehrlich.[1] In its pages, the authors noted, "The neo-Malthusiasn view proposes...population limitation and redistribution of wealth." They concluded, "On these points, we find ourselves firmly in the neo-Malthusian camp" (p. 954).

Economist Thomas Malthus is one of the most literally anti-human theorists in human history. He viewed overpopulation as the fount of all woe, but one which could be staunched with enough blood. In "An Essay on the Principle of Population" Malthus wrote, "All the children who are born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room be made for them by the death of grown persons...if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use...and court the return of the plague." Like their intellectual forebear, Holdren and the Ehrlichs proposed their own acceptable sacrifice to the environment.

Conservative Republicans haven't thought for themselves for the past 8 years, because Bush & Cheney wouldn't allow it. So why should it be any different now? Now they are turning to Limbaugh, Hannity and Fox news to tell them what to think, irregardless of lies or propoganda. Republicans have always used "fear" as a way to intimidate the American public (ie; the farce they called the Iraq war). That's exactly what they are doing with this health care reform plan. Lies, lies and more lies. Think for yourself. Read the bill.

If one reads the bill(s) presented in Congress one finds that more power will given to the federal goverment. One will find that people will have less freedom of choice in living their lives. Our country has problems but, power in Washington is not the answer the only answer is in the state and local community. ( But wait, that is what the constitution stated)

The true purpose of Obamaís public option is to move Americans out of their private coverage and into government run health care. An independent , non-partisan anaylsis from the Lewin Group,has confirmed the House bill, H.R. 3200, will do exactly that: About 88.1 million workers would see their current private, employer-sponsored health plan go away and would be shifted to the public plan. Americans have the right to be afraid and speak out against this

More fear tactics. Be afraid, be very very afraid. That's all you repubs know. Bet you haven't read the bill(s) either. Just be a follower and believe what others tell you instead of checking it out yourself.

Talk about spouting fear tactics, when you can't state any facts on your end that proves a point. Why don't you trying doing that?

All this POTUS is about is CONTROL AND POWER OVER US, the citizens of the United States of America! We don't need his CHANGE! His CHANGE will DESTROY our land and, we live in the most blessed country on Earth. Yes, we have some problems, but we don't need a complete makeover. All the left know how to do is fear tactics of how everyday people...who actually have read the bill are mad!! And don't want this bill

One point all should consider. Our President and his Staff, Congress, and Senate, might listen to the will of the American People who put them in office. All they have to do is look back in time and they will find the People will have their way when all is said and done. We The People are the ones who hired them. Name calling, ACORN, Chicago Politics, and etc; will NOT over ride the will of the people. Did I hear something about uniting the Country? What's happening?
