<quoted text>I'm not a big ACA supporter, because I don't think is does enough, but it is a start.
I like the fact that big insurance can't turn you down because of preexisting conditions and I can cover my kids until they get though school but I'm afraid it isn't much good otherwise.
I'm more of a socialized medicine person.
But I feel that our education system is what needs to be scrapped first and it needs to be socialized. Education and health problems is what is going to cause us the most problems going forward. But most people are me now thinkers, and aren't looking down the road at where we are headed.
Karen thinks the same way, but the problem I have with her is that she treats her employees like crap, and has even admitted it. If she is going to talk the talk, she needs to walk the walk.
I'm a registered Independent, but I'm Union Blue thru and thru.
I agree-- ACA does not go far enough.

But, again, it's a start.

I think that basic healthcare ought to be free for anyone who's human-- that ought to be the single criteria-- human, no questions asked.

Sadly, there are too many folk who are greedy to their last breath-- they got theirs (usually by inheriting it--not by anything they actually did) and to hell with anyone else.

As for our education system? Yes-- it's messed up, but it *is* basic socialism. And it's a damn sight better than a for-profit system would be.

For profit has it's place--like selling cheezeburgers or automobiles.

But it has no place in medicine or education-- those ought to be free to anyone who asks.

<quoted text>LOL! Because I'm not stupid like she is.
Why don't you show me how it's done? Big Man with the Big Mouth.
I warned her not to troll me. She decided to play the game, AGAIN and she lost again.
Google Karen Janbaz Topix , and see for yourself. This isn't the first stupid mistake she has made.
In fact she has a major self destruction problem, and she finally got around to trolling me because she ran out of everyone else. It just so happened that because of the info she put out in the past about herself it led me to people that personally know her, and don't like her. She has made a lot of enemies. What's funny is politically Karen and I think a lot alike. I just am better at respecting other people's opinions than she is. Except when it comes to you.
I don't like you at all either.
I don't care who Karen is and I really don't care who you are either. I just hate seeing an internet bully. Especially one who is some big fat chick with no life. Stop running your mouth and go meet her at her business since you like to talk so much.

LOL! What is your issue with women? I'll bet your wife slaps you down every chance she gets and the only way you have to lash out is at someone that can't touch you.

Have you ever thought that maybe God is the one telling her to slap you up side your head?

Does it go something like this? "Antiatheist my ass, more like anti-gotnosense". SLAP!

Am I still dreaming?
Yes, you're dreaming. Too much alcohol over a lifetime has its
downsides. Your incontinence and circulatory leg problems are
typical alcoholism symptoms.

And you bill yourself as a philosopher when you can't see
the real reason for your wet pants.

You're too far gone to change.

Again, try hard to focus on you because you are the one with the issues. Cyber bullying someone that you think you know and refusing to give any info about yourself. Thats extremely weak and cowardly. Makes you look like the freak that you must be. Grow up

Humanitarians act out of concern for others. Here, I am concerned with nothing more than wasting my time on an unproductive project, arguing with someone who lacks the ability to reason. More selfish than humanitarian.

Humanitarian is a title that is understood to be a selfless actor, but most physiologists agree that every act of intentional kindness is a selfish act because making someone feel better makes the person that is giving feel better about themselves.

<quoted text>Try foods and drinks that are high in potassium such as bananas and Gatorade. If you drink alcohol stop well before bedtime and drink lots of water, alcohol will dehydrate you. If that doesn't help, you should talk to your Doctor about any prescription drugs you may be taking.
You might talk to OKC (Karen) about the ample breasts part. She has already invited you to dinner.
Good advice (the electrolyte balancing dietary supplement part). Thank you. As for using OKC's breasts to warm my scented oil ... uh ... not so much. I suffered a momentary lapse of reason. I'm a happily married man! Someone rubbing expensive oils into callused feet is the providence of Saviors and other special people. I'm not worthy.

That's too bad. The closer I get to death the more I look forward to the rest. I don't perceive Judgment Day as a problem.

It seems to be a term coined by Genuine Christians (tm) to describe their arch-foes in the battle between Good and Evil. What y'all OUGHT to be doing is figuring out which side you are actually on. Perhaps later.

Believing in a God, not believing in gods, Internet discussion boards where people are free to speak their minds in relative anonymity ... I think we are participating, pretty much as designed and expected, in a 'machine' intended to provoke arguments. What would be weird is getting angry about it.
