With ppl like the Koch brothers and
Rupert Murcock using billions of dollars,
and the influence that that kind of money
buys, it is surprising we have an America
at all.

"Fair and balanced" news is something
from a bygone era.

Anyone who tells you that an election can
be bough but democracy can't is someone
who has not been paying attention to the
reality of our times.
Oh the irony

It will be funny when, after hundreds of millions spent in an attempt to buy the election AND voter suppression, the republicans still lose because- of yeah- THEY RAN RMONEY.

What a waste!

Romney or no Romney something needs to be done about
the Koch brothers making 100 billion annually by less
than legal means then using that money to influence politics
on many different levels.

Trying to break unions, trying to re- segregate schools,
polluting the air and ground water w/ known carcinogenics.

And Murdock using fear tactics and flat out lies to scare
ppl into believing whatever HIS agenda is.
He knows what many ignorant ppl don't understand.
Something doesn't have to be true for ppl to believe in

And what really makes me cry is a new
trend in this country called medical tourism.

Ppl who can't pay $68,000 for a hip replacement
going to India, Barbados and even Mexico.

They are getting better health care than
here in the U.S. but at a fraction of the
costs.

That hip replacement in India costs 8,800
and that includes 7 days in the hospital, all
meds and nursing care and 7 days at a 5 star
resort w/outpatient therapy.

For all the negative comments about "Obamacare"
which in Mass is called "Romneycare" those same
ppl criticizing don't want to talk about the new
trend of Americans having to decide b/t walking
or keeping their homes.

Amazing that some people want to keep that as the status quo AND state that *we have the best healthcare in the world". More irony is that 'Obamacare' was based on 'Romneycare' and the very same Romney vows to repeal it on his first day. But....replace it? He doesn't actually say....

43,000 ppl die every day for lack
of health care in the United States.

Every other civilized country finds
this unacceptable.

As a matter of fact the only other
country that equal/surpasses that is
Africa.

Something is really Wrong with that picture.

Ask anyone else in medicine.

You break your vows the day you start
working. You swear to do no harm, to
not refuse treatment to Anyone based on
race, religion, diagnosis or financial
status.

So the first day you work and the hospital
says : discharge this patient b/c his insurance
company says 3 days for COPD.
You knows he's too sick to go home but guess
what you do?
You discharge him.

Oh! Those evil Koch brothers... Reinvesting 90% of the profit back into their companies, creating all those awful jobs.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/danielfisher/2012...

The Koch brothers are grandsons of a Dutch immigrant who settled in tiny Quanah, Texas and saved up enough money as a printer and publisher to send his son, Fred, to M.I.T. in the 1920s. Armed with a degree in chemical engineering, Fred invented a more efficient process for refining oil and built a prosperous company that Charles took over in the 1960s. Charles is a devotee of the Austrian School of economists who believe free-market capitalism is the best method for allocating society’s resources and generating the productivity gains that make people richer.

He’s applied that philosophy to Koch since he took over his father’s business, coining the phrase “market-based management” for a process in which he gives employees incentives to run their divisions like separate businesses, with a focus on return on investment.

There’s no arguing with the results: By Koch’s calculations, Koch Industries has grown more than 2,000-fold under Charles Koch’s leadership, far outstripping the growth of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

Perhaps for that reason, the Koch brothers reinvest 90% of their profits back into the business. That’s another surprising practice for men past retirement age, with family members who theoretically would like to get their hands on a billion-dollar-a-year dividend stream. The Kochs declined to comment for this article, but Kaplan said their dividend policy isn’t completely irrational. Even at a 90% reinvestment rate, they can still probably pull a couple hundred million dollars a year out of the company.

The wonderful and lovable George Soros:

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2003/nov/...

In Mr. Soros’ mind, the sovereignty of the United States must be subordinated to international law and international institutions, such as the United Nations and its International Criminal Court.

A world order based on the sovereignty of states, say Mr. Soros, cannot take care of our common human interests because the principle of sovereignty stands in the way.

Throw a few of those Haliburton, Caci, KBR, etc., war profiteers in the pokey while you're at it...Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld as war criminals would probably be too much to hope for.

Ever watch "Trading Places"? I can tell if Clem is a Koch-sucker or just half-Koched.
