Opponents mark Obamacare's third anniversary with lobbying surge

Mar 24, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

Eight months before President Barack Obama's health care law goes prime time, a confederation of industry and business groups is ramping up its lobbying apparatus for an 11th-hour assault on the web of new taxes and regulations.

Both of the organizations behind the lobbying efforts have a long history of wanting American workers to work for slave wages with no health insurance. If this country had a single payer system we wouldn't have these problems.

What is your solution to the escalating cost of Health Care for employers to cover employee? The Medical Insurance industry has operated free of regulations for more than 45 years and the results are that more America are bankrupt from medical bill where Insurance companies dropped coverage when those consumers needed their plans that they were paying into.

Who thefuck is Larry Wilson? Your assertion about my name is about as accurate as the rest of your inane bullshit.
People know me here on Topix. Anyone who believes your insane allegations about me probably belongs to the Flat Earth Society.
Whatever your motives (which I believe are not what you state), your feeble attempts to smear me will not work, at least among the people with 3-digit IQ's.
Let's be clear: YOU insulted me, I only responded to your gross racism. I am not responsible for your choice of insults. Everyone with even a limited intelligence knows that ape, monkey or baboon comparisons are likely to get one into hot water due to their racial undertones. You seem to have been asleep during that portion of the Human Relations class (doesn't your place of work have them?).

I am apparently the second or perhaps even the third person thusly insulted in the Islands. Most people are also aware of the predominate racial group here. Yet you think ape or baboon is acceptable? I am here to inform you that you are sadly mistaken.

In fact, considering that this is now a pattern you've demonstrated, it's hard to believe it's not deliberate. Is your vocabulary so parched you are unable to think of other insults?

I implore you to quit pestering me and desist with the racial insults directed at me or others, or I shall be forced to report you to Topix.

Your color, whatever it is, means nothing to me. But the fact that you are a screwball is plainly evident.

Keep up your sociopathic, slanderous inanities. This dance is over.

Let me see if I have this right: you call me a baboon and yet I am " sociopathic & slanderous"? I can assure you that if you come to our island and persist in glibly referring to people as baboons, you will get a severe lesson in manners, which you richly deserve. Is that clear?

However, since you and I otherwise have similar political views, I will explain this to you as if you we're a child (which I am beginning to suspect you are). Certain insults are off limits until you are absolutely sure of the race of the person you are addressing. That includes anything implying sub-human status, such as "baboon", etc. Additionally, when the person you have decided to insult is from an area dominated by people of colour, you should presume they are non-white until you know otherwise. Have I made myself clear? Furthermore, the fact that you cannot see me means little, which I shall explain.

As I've said, my ethnicity is mixed, my father being so of a so much darker complexion people do not know I'm his, whereas my mother is white. I have a brother who is so dark nobody suspects we're brothers immediately. This is not common in the islands, but neither is it unheard of. My suggestion to you is that you refrain from prejudging the situation. Clear enough?

Finally, if you we're here and, as people do, made the assumption that I must be just a person of southern European extraction, that would not be surprising. If you then went on to call me, or anyone in my family, a baboon, I'd punch you right in your stupid face. Have I made myself clear in this case as well?

FINALLY - MR. WOLF, STOP USING RACIALLY-CHARGED WORDS OR I WILL REPORT YOU TO TOPIX! STOP MAKING LAME EXCUSES FOR THE USE OF THOSE WORDS OR I WILLREPORT YOU TO TOPIX! THERE IS NO ALLOWANCE MADE FOR WHITE LIBERALS TO USE SUCH WORDS!
CLEAR?

I have your back, my friend. This Mr. Wolf did a similar insult to a business associate of mine from St. Kitts. He seems to believe that his liberalism is a free pass to call coloured people apes, monkeys or baboons. Who can understand such behavior?
