<quoted text>The main parts of The Affordable Care Act don't even kick in until 2014 but I guess your crystal ball knows better than reality.

Healthcare will bankrupt this country as economists and doctors have warned if we don't put measures in place to protect consumers. 65% of all bankruptcy filings list "Medical bills" as the #1 reason that Americans lose everything they worked for their entire lives.

Just wait till you or someone you loves gets sick and the hospital takes everything you own because the Insurance company tells you you've hit your cap. With Obamacare, that won't happen but like I said, you frightwingers value stopping the black man in the White house far more than you value the future of America. Good luck with that.
Exactly! The main part hasn't kicked in yet, and already healthcare has suffered from Obamacare. Do you even question why, if Obamacare is going to be better and lower costs, Obama and his band of merry Democrats have delayed large portions of it until after the 2014 elections?
I guess they did warn of it! It's not rocket science! When people can walk into the ER, get treatment, go home and never have to pay the bill, no shit sherlock! Now, we have Obamacare to drive costs even higher, and guess what? We have 11-20 million illegal Immigrants that may get amnesty, and they can still walk into the ER, get treatment, go home, and never have to pay the bill! Do you know who DOES pay?

There are far more blacks in this country then there are Asain.

And there are more white on welfare than blacks.

PS: there are far more dollars spent on corparate welfare than on single mothers living on the poverty line, Pinocchio.

Wipe your chin, dear, you haven't lifted a finger for this country.

Health care costs have already gone down.

Of course, you have problems with actual numbers and figures and facts...

Yes, there are, 51+ percent of whites, compared to 39 percent blacks.

Of course, you have problems with facts and admitting you are wrong.

To be called a (gun nut) by those that think that others will protect their lives so they dont have to guard their own lives. Sounds absurd already? When I pose the question to the (insane gun control nuts) That being I will be in control of protecting my own life and those I love. Do you realy think that by threatning to call the lol (police) That this will make an armed intruder run away?

Stop telling me what crimes I might commit with a gun but didnt. Everyone should be happy to take gun safety courses and to pass down to children. Stop telling me that I am a danger to others with my weapons. It is a simple fact that an intruder who knows the household is armed well will think again.

You fools who want to take and disarm America are going to find out that its simply not possible. Think of all the guns sold before the gun registration act. No one knows who has them or where. Even with the hard to get ammo today millio ns are well stocked with arsenals that are very impressive. If you think everyone will willingly give up their fire arms you are very deluded.

Many will fight to the death and take as many with them as possible. Now lets just say that ten million refused to cave in and all at once all over the nation this happened. Logisticaly imposssible for the combined might of state local and fed to deal with this number, and I think i am being conservitive.

So they know this. instaed they must once again convince the dumbed down public to do that wich is not good for them, even if it takes decades. Why not blame Reagan? After all he was the one that decided it is cheaper to give a nut case a check instaed of minimum security housing with the help they needed on hand.

The real issue is not so much guns but the prosperity they are taking away from us. it is coming to the point where there is not much left to take. Then they will have to feed upon one another, having drained the citizens of all wealth even though they swore to manage our prosperity.

The lies and treachery are legion! The problem with anti gun nuts is that they have never realy had too many bad things happen to them or witnessed them and saw the truth as why it happened, not the propoganda venume spewed out by media.

Also, how long will the national guard shoot and kill their own countrymen? Many will desert, some will not have their hearsts into it. Some will tell secrets making it more difficult for government forces to exterminate armed citizens. You that would dissarm us will be the first ones looking at their own guts spilled in stupid surprise, still not getting it, still convinced thAT THE SYSTEM will help them.

I am a gun. I have challenged the waves and crossed a vast, unforgiving sea. I have landed on these shores. I am held by the pilgrim, the pioneer, and the trail blazer. I have brought civilization to a barren wilderness.

I am a gun. I have fed the early settlers. I have protected their cabins. I have flamed in the cause of liberty. I have brought down tyrants. I have given birth to a brave and noble land of freedom.

I am a gun. I have ended slavery. I have tamed the West. I have established law and order. I have crossed a continent.

I am a gun. I am fallen into the dirt wherever brave warriors die. I rest beside their bodies. I am stained with their blood. I am covered by their battle helmets. Planted with my bayonet in the soil, I stand as a battlefield cross, a simple but poignant memorial for their sacrifice.

I am a gun. I returned across that vast, unforgiving sea. I have won two World Wars. I have flown over war-torn skies. I have jumped from planes, parachuting into danger.

I am a gun. I have stormed the beaches, the jungles, the volcanic sands, and the frozen land. I have won great victories and signed peace treaties. I have returned to our shores for ticker tape parades and sometimes with no welcome at all.

I am a gun. I started out as a rather primitive weapon, only firing one shot before I must be reloaded. But as the times changed and as man progressed, so did I.

I am a gun. I can be used for both good and evil. I can take a life. I can be used to save them.

I am a gun. I can inflict great hardship and suffering upon many in my path. I can also be used by good men to stop the actions of evil ones. I can end the bloodshed and restore peace.

I am a gun. I can put meat on a family’s table. I can protect your household from harm by intruders. I can provide a means of recreation.

I am a gun. If left untouched upon the table or nightstand, I can harm no one.

I am a gun. I cannot drive to an elementary school, a crowded shopping mall, or a Hollywood movie premiere.

I am a gun. My eye cannot see but where I am pointed. I have no motive. I have no soul. I have no compassion. I hold no malice.

I am a gun. I cast no vote. I hold no political allegiance. I embrace no party. I employ no political agenda. I practice no faith.

I am a gun. When only the military or the police may own me, then I will always be used to inflict great numbers of deaths upon their citizens.

I am a gun. Hitler used me to drive millions of Jews into cattle cars like livestock, transporting them to the gas chambers for their deaths. Stalin, Mao, and other notorious butchers of humanity used me to maintain their evil and twisted lust for power.

I am a gun. Those who seek to remove me from the hands of a free people are brothers to those who commit great acts of genocide.

I am a gun. I can be used to stop the forces of evil. I can be used for evil itself.

I am a gun. Those who use me to harm others can only be stopped by those who wisely employ me in their defeat.

I am a gun. Samuel Colt understood that I could even the odds against those of overwhelming strength or superior numbers. I have made it possible for the meek to overcome the mighty.

I am a gun. When you mention the names of Wyatt Earp, Bill Hickok, Alvin York, Audie Murphy, and Chris Kyle, it brings me to mind. Their mastery of me made them famous.

I am a gun. I have been praised and cursed. I have been both destroyed and treasured. I have been proudly passed down from father to son.

I am a gun. I am only as good or as bad as the ones who possess me.

I am a gun. I am the defender of liberty. I am the guarantor of free speech. I am a friend of the free. I am the missing element of the enslaved.

I am a gun. My purposes and my destiny are in your hands alone.

I am a gun.

Not to mention, the Government can not afford to take out their working taxpayers. They would have nothing but parasites left. Who would pay for Government salaries, Welfare, Food Stamps, Government Housing, Free Cell Phones...

You don't protect other people's lives, you limp wristed fairy.

The gun gnutter holds this zimmerman pedophile up as a hero because he shot a boy in the chest.

Let's be clear: without the weapon, the pedophile would have gotten his azz kicked.

And by all measures of what a man is: he is a coward.

So you share much in common.

Yeah but there are people who continue to come here from nations with a bit of education and live an earth existance helping each to get out of poverty and become mainstreamed. Usually they start out in poverty areas and take so called non racial abuses, insults and slanders from african americans and then non racial assaults and murders from the same. After several yesrs even with gang forming to defend themselves...Koreans, Viet Namese, and people from other Asian nations and the Middle East become successful But one thing remains the same. One thing always remains the same. Guess...I know it is somebody elses fault. Really!

I am a gun. I am used to kick off the native population who are armed with spears and bows and arrows. I am used to take away the land from those who lived there for thousands of years and give them to those who had no right to trespass.

I am a gun. I was used to introduce slavery. I was used to keep slaves. I was used to capture escaped slaves. and I was used by slave owners to keep them, at great cost- millions of lives- during the Civil War.

Without me, there would not have ever been slavery.

So many people who are successful going off the deep end. Forced to charge twice and three times more to a working class customer to pay for the barefoot2626 type beggars and even more. So purchase a weapon. Even a revolver that is simple will help you out. If you are of working class and this progressive led government is not paying you but paying someone else, then you don't need them do you? We need massive tax cuts and a big rebatge starting now. then we will start to believe. But they can't do that. a few million more Racheal Jeantels to be born the next few years are in the offing and they will be voters. remember fencewalkers...progressives are myopic. I tell you the direction with multiple outcomes...all not to good.

I am a gun. I was used to start two world wars. World War I, the war to end all wars, was started from a single shot from my barrel.

Millions- some 16 million- would die from that single shot.

I am a gun.
