Well Paco, there are plenty of people out there much closer to that situation and more informed than you who have a different opinion about that.

I've got news for you, Reader - you can write your representative, go see them in person, call them, email, etc., all you want - but in the end, they do what those who feed them financially tell them to do. And the "people" are not who I mean. In the case of health reform, it was the insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, etc.

You really do live in your own little world, don't you?

Furthermore, you need to wake up to the fact that going on and on on Topix with your "solutions" will not change a thing.

Not the best example, because next up is his moral conduct while in office. It's true he has received a number of political props on his management, but I never could get past the honey in a condo thing. Get a divorce, for crying out loud!

The honey in the condo had as much to do with the decline in crime as his "broken windows" policy did.

Maybe every big city mayor should get one.

The numbers don't lie. You people give all the credit for the '90s economy to Clinton and all the blame for everything from November 7, 2000 to this day to Bush.
Deal with it.

Numbers are inanimate. People tend to utilize them in the fashion you are here: they spit them out as if they explain some circumstance in its entirety, when in reality there are several other factors at play in the cause/effect dynamic that aren't being mentioned whatsoever.

Its a silly game to play Paco. They should have taught you that in sophomore statistics class at Colby.

I did. But on this thread, I'm using your leftist tactics.
As soon as you people credit the GOP House of the '90s for the economic boom of that time, and start blaming Obama for the disaster we inhabit today, I'll discount Giuliani's role in the cleansing of NYC.

There is no magic in the published schedule and they are days away from their next sequestration crisis. Some members of the house preferred to extend the session to get some needed work done. As Speaker, Boehner chose instead to adjourn.

I took it as a sarcastic quip. Like how Republicans on this forum constantly blame things congress does or doesn't do on Obama despite the fact hes from a different branch of the government alltogether. If its not Obama its some Democratic punching bag picked by the context...Usually ignoring the other elephants in the room.

Yes, I do.

Even the most self-obsessed should be aware than poor health has ramifications that go far beyond the individual.

But you call yourself a Libertarian, huh? You sure seem to like Dems over the GOP in all your brain dead posts, kid. Why is that?
