In the spirit of the left's charges that those that do not support Obama are racist, I'd offer that it is those that did support Cain, a full-blooded African American, are the racists.

Regardless of our differences, love ya, Arctic. It's been fun and you are civil to debate with, unlike that b1tch OC.(I know I shouldn't have, but I had to OC ... I'm totally totally kidding OC, I really, really am ... don't be mad, lmao)
:D
Wow, again with the bitch comment. If it makes you feel like a man to call me names then hey knock yourself out.

I have always been civil with you and we have had a few debates. I thought we had got past the stupidity if name calling along time ago. I guess not.

Because I don't agree with you and stand up for myself doesn't make me a bitch. It just means you and I have different opinions on things.

I think the race card is over played. I think sometimes it becomes an excuse. And like Sublime said in a previous post we shouldn't be held responsible for the past we had nothing to do with.
But we should learn from it.

I don't think Obama being a black man had anything to do with him being elected the first time. I do think he offered hope in a time when we desperately needed a change. We needed new blood and fresh ideas, a new path from someone young and vibrant and chomping at the bit.

Mc cain/Palin had nothing to offer.

That sounds like a clear violation of the law:
"The federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) requires any hospital that participates in Medicare and maintains a dedicated emergency department to (1) conduct an “appropriate screening exam” on anyone who comes to the hospital and asks to be treated and (2) stabilize any emergency condition it detects."
"If the screening finds an emergency medical condition exists, the hospital must either provide treatment to stabilize the patient or transfer the patient to another facility. But a hospital does not necessarily violate EMTALA if a screening fails to accurately detect an emergency condition and the person is discharged (although it might be open to a malpractice claim)."
"Stabilizing treatment can be limited by the capabilities of a hospital's facility (e.g., its physical space, equipment, and specialized services such as surgery, pediatrics, trauma care) and staff (i.e., the level of care the staff, including those on-call, can provide within the scope of their licensure)."
"Federal regulations define “stabilized” to mean that there is a reasonable medical probability that discharging or transferring the person would not result in his or her condition materially deteriorating. In the case of a woman in labor, stabilizing means delivering the child and placenta (42 CFR 489.24(b))."
Sounds like it should be against the law.....I agree.

But you said it yourself. The ER stablizes. That's it.

Ppl w/o insurance can't get a $75-$350 dr apt so they
are packing into the ER. Too many ppl for them to deal
with.
And if you feel bad, short of breath, chest pain...you
don't have ins...go to the ER they will do blood work to
check for heart attack and infection, chest x-ray to look
for pneumonia. If nothing shows up they send him home.

Now keep in mind that this is a true story and I knew
the guy really well.

The local ER tells him they see nothing and send him home.
He's dead inside of 2 months. Turns out he had lung cancer.
How did the local ER miss it? B/c they are too busy.
Plus they are only looking for an immediate emergency.

It's a bad way to conduct health care.
The system is too broken to save. We need to scrap it
and get a new one. But first we are going to have to
change the way we think about health care.

I agree. That's why I voted for Obama for his first term. I also think the past 8 years under republican leadership were a complete disaster and folks wanted to give the other party a chance.

I did. But because I voted for Obama I get thrown in the mix as a bleeding heart liberal.

Morning...:)

I have nothing to simmer down about. I'm not mad.

After the first bitch comment there's wasn't really anything else you could or would say that would make me interested in any of your comments.

It's funny that while the right vehemently denies being racist and hating Obama for the color of his skin, they so matter-a-factly state that his race was the ONLY reason he was elected!

You pretty much nailed it. After eight awful years of GW Bush, the GOP was just showing up because they had to *try*. McCain/Palin was not much of a try and they were only going to get partisan votes regardless of who they ran and that would not be enough to win.

It was pretty easy to see in '08 that we were either going to have our first black president or our first woman president. The level of contempt and obstruction by the GOP would probably have been the same had Hilary Clinton prevailed. These are NOT gracious losers or dedicated servants to the American people.

Takes a real man to repeatedly throw around the biotch word, pookie, whether teasing or not! Immature, unclassly, uncool, yet totally in character for you, dude!

I sent a reply to the bitch comment and I agreed with you on the past and us not being responsible for it. Thats it...

I'm not wound to tight at all. I'm very easy going but when a (man) who doesn't know me thinks its ok even kidding to call me a bitch it just shows me what kind of a man you are.

Maybe I'm old school like that and think just because we are in debate name calling shouldn't be part of it.

I have 5 brothers and 3 sons and I can promise you my sons would never do that. I have raised them better and I have raised them to respect women regardless if they agree with them or not.

I don't want to fight with you about this. It is what it is.
Again we just agree to diagree...
