hey moron........In America even tourists get free healthcare.
this is fact.......not even debatable.
I have awesome healthcare, and see the finest specialists in Columbus area. My standard of care has ZERO complaints. I can only say thanks for a great job the healthcare practitioners have provided me.
I paid them of course.
I pay myself into Social security and medicaid. No employer contribution....all of it....self employed you know.
I also pay state, city, and federal income taxes, property taxes and sales taxes. I am forced to pay quarterly to the treasury and State, and city.
Since you want comparisons.....because I pay more in taxes every year, than you, Duke, and Che combined, I wonder when you 3 belly up and pay your fair share?
now complain about my spelling.
Those 45 attorneys must have done a pretty lousy job. At the beginning of the year you said they made it so you had no income and didn't have to pay income tax ever again. Now look at all the tax you are paying. You should sue them.

Now, the idiotic auto insurance comparison: Who forces you to drive or own a car? If you do neither, you aren't required by law to purchase auto insurance. But with Obamacare, you are forced to purchase a product simply because you EXIST.
Get it, booner boy?
Well, if it ain't the hillbilly with yet another personality and just as dumb...

Car insurance, like health insurance is a necessity like any other coverage for functioning adults. If you drive a tractor, you still need to be insured...Most working adults have a car or some form of vehicle to get around in, maybe you're not quite an adult yet and get your poor mother to drive you to your tea parties, but most will agree, we adults take car insurance very seriously, it's a need to most with lives beyond topix.

Now an affordable alternative for those who were unable to afford health care is available...Some tax is involved, but nothing like what your dumbass Rush limboob has been ranting about...

Do you get that, chicken feed?

Very few people actually NEED a car in a bunch of cities, staring with yours, booner. Now, stop deflecting and address my point about being forced to buy insurance simply because you EXIST. Then ask these people about their experience:

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.

Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

"I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today,"
Brochures and handouts on the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, are shown at the education outreach booth sponsor by Daughters of Charity O'Connor Hospital at Santa Clara County Library Alum Rock branch in San Jose on Oct. 1, 2013.(Josie Lepe/Staff)
Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.

"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."

Yes, auto insurance is a choice for a free citizen. Nowhere does any law say that you must operate a motor vehicle to be a full and free citizen of the United States of America.
Are you really as stupid as you act? Or is it just your innate blackness working its magic?

There’s no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.

The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle, according to lead researcher Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario. Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found. Those ideologies, in turn, stress hierarchy and resistance to change, attitudes that can contribute to prejudice, Hodson wrote in an email to LiveScience.

“Prejudice is extremely complex and multifaceted, making it critical that any factors contributing to bias are uncovered and understood,” he said.

And you wondered why conservatives don’t believe in science. If science told you that your beliefs were ignorant and a sign of a low IQ, you would (assuming you had a low IQ) do what any low IQ animal would do. You’d react with anger and perhaps verbal violence to stop the inevitable pain that results from cognitive dissonance among those who can’t handle it. Who can’t handle cognitive dissonance? People with lower IQs.

Now before we get all puffed up and start gloating toward our racist acquaintances, we of the superior intellect need to realize that gloating in the face of an angry, confused person with a low IQ will do nothing but give short term satisfaction.

As other scientists note later in the article, the challenge is how to get through to people whose intellect can’t handle being challenged with alternative realities. We can’t argue our way through to them; we have to find a way to appeal to their feelings. And yet, it seems compassion is lacking so we can’t put any stake in using compassion or empathy to appeal.

The ability to appeal to base emotions is exemplified in many of the has-been Republican candidates from Cain to Perry, but nobody does it like Newt. After all, it takes an unfathomable loss of ethics and integrity to knowingly and with malice exploit racism and fear for personal gain. It takes someone with no soul to be willing to destroy the unity of this country for their personal gain.

We see how well Newt Gingrich is using the Palin technique of exploiting the confusion and fear of lower IQ individuals by appealing to their racism, their fear of the “other” and their religious beliefs. Their alleged religious beliefs are based in the same fears – these are not New Testament love your neighbor type of Christians; these are the Christians who pray for President Obama to die and leave his wife a widow and his children fatherless (see Psalm 109).

These prayers of vengeance are called “imprecatory prayers” and they’ve been political public knowledge since the Palin prayer warriors engaged in them during 2008. In 2011, a sergeant was suspended for leaving imprecatory prayers against the President in a stack of bibles meant for inmates of the prison where he worked (inciting violence much?) and Alan Colmes got a pastor to admit on the radio that he was indeed praying for President Obama to die:

“Are you praying for his death?” Colmes asked.
“Yes,” Drake replied.
“So you’re praying for the death of the president of the United States?”
“Yes.”
“If he does not turn to God and does not turn his life around, I am asking God to enforce imprecatory prayers that are throughout the Scripture that would cause him death, that’s correct…..”

These folks are the result of cruel, ugly machines of hate for political gain and deception. These are dangerous forces, and sadly, the lower the IQ the more dangerous they are. Imagine them as a wounded animal in the wild who’s been misled to believe that everyone who is not the same color as he is a vulture come to prey upon him.

They see everyone else as their enemy. This is typical in a simplistic mindset. And then the real vultures come to prey upon these folks, pointing the finger outward at Democrats, liberals and President Obama as “the problem,” sometimes using language meant to imply that the danger we pose is imminent.

Look what slithers back after a year. The cvnt form Chillicothe.
Now, pardon me while I whip this out:

It turns out that there is about as strong a correlation between scores on the science comprehension scale and identifying with the Tea Party as there is between scores on the science comprehension scale and Conservrepub.

Except that it has the opposite sign: that is, identifying with the Tea Party correlates positively (r = 0.05, p = 0.05) with scores on the science comprehension measure:

Again, the relationship is trivially small, and can't possibly be contributing in any way to the ferocious conflicts over decision-relevant science that we are experiencing.

I've got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I'd be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.

But then again, I don't know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable tv -- & I don't watch Fox News very often -- and reading the "paper" (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico).

I'm a little embarrassed, but mainly I'm just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.

Of course, I still subscribe to my various political and moral assessments--all very negative-- of what I understand the "Tea Party movement" to stand for. I just no longer assume that the people who happen to hold those values are less likely than people who share my political outlooks to have acquired the sorts of knowledge and dispositions that a decent science comprehension scale measures.

If we are to have any hope of overcoming this ugly ploy, we must stop trying to use intellectual arguments to get through to these voters because that isn’t working.

We must find a way to appeal emotionally to people whose world views offend us. Perhaps we can start by realizing that even though they sound mean and low, they know not what they do. They are being used and manipulated by a master right now, but certainly the modern day Republican Party is no slouch at their Southern Strategy.

Newt Gingrich is a lot of things but dumb he isn’t, unlike the cunning but rather ignorant Palin to whom he is wrongly compared. Sarah Palin is as much a victim of her own ignorance as her followers are, though she is an obvious exploiter of others – the alpha ignorant, if you will. But Newt knows better and still chooses this path.

In response to the study, a scientist observed that perhaps simple and extreme ideologies attract dumb people. They gave the example of far left ideology believing that everyone is wonderful, though there was no data to prove this hypothesis. I consider myself pretty far left if the Republican Party represents the new middle Right, but I have seen evil on this earth and I know it exists and must be fought by any means necessary (Hitler, as an example).

However, I disagree that assuming the best in human nature is dumb or a sign of low IQ (I would hypothesize the opposite, actually, that anti-war ideology might be found in more evolved people, for example, so long as that ideal was an acknowledged impracticality and not a dogma) but I would agree that overly extreme ideology tends to attract people who don’t like complexities inherent in balancing human nature as it is versus human nature as we would like it to be. Extremes generate emotional responses that too often overwhelm intellectual engagement.

What we do know right now is that far right ideals attract people who are racist and have low IQs. The whys are up for grabs. We also know that the Republican Party is exploiting this in a dangerous, destructive manner that is bad for our country, and that they are being aided and abetted in this mission by too many religious leaders and corporations (including our mainstream media) for the purpose of enacting policies that benefit the 1%.
