Most of them made it this far by leeching off the taxpayers rather than working for the real Amercian dream.

Voter who is a hoot is so brand new to the point of not being relevant! President Clinton states to all DO THE MATH! Voter did not graduate from high school so he's a bit confuse! So 1+1=2 you are going to turn blue in november!
E pluribus ENUM
Clinton did the math with Ms. Lewinsky, and Obama is doing the same thing with the American citizens, and it certainly isn't a pleasant sight!

Well, well mommy hasn’t put her little Roveits to bed yet. Out with their standardized bumper stickers. No facts, no issues absolutely nothing to speak of. Typical Tea intoxicated republican callow juveniles. Guess its time for story telling. These little munchkins like stories. Too bad no pictures like in their comic books but what the heck.
Caldron economics.
Moments in history have come and gone. Winds of change come to swirl and twirl of what is.
People rise up and proclaim “something is wrong”! Oh how many times has that cry rang out from the oppressed? Tumultuous years of 1848 and 1968 each of those years echoing sounds of evolution, demanding of us a change. A new growth of comprehension of the nature of the beast within our humanities.
Year of 2008 may have stirred the kettle that have been simmering. Bubbles emerging and subsiding, Tunisian, Egyptians discontent’s continuing to spread through out the Middle East. Some were little simmering bubbles subsiding. Others were larger and exploded, exposing their dissatisfied unhappiness of confinement.
Heroic daring achievements were displayed by the bubbling substance, raining back down to its surface. Cataclysmic societal change demanded evolution. Natural induced processes merged as a force that would topple Hosni Mubarak and Muammar Kaddafi.
Across Europe simmering seething bubbles began to appear. Spain, Greece, United Kingdom and the United States all seething, foaming. boiling. Vaporous odors familiar, to our senses begin to arise. Equality, Liberty, Happiness, Freedom once again distributing their aromatic fragrances.
Zuccotti Park N.Y. to Tahrir Square. Scented sweet smelling odorous perfumes adrift. Misting about all that witness the kettle’s evolutionary broth simmering.
Providing the fuel of tinder dried economics, by the lords of the caldrons. Excessively abusing their inequality of distribution of their economics. Uneven heat to the pot, displaying the disproportion of the foaming simmering bubbles, as the caldron absorbs the fire’s energies. Caldron dissimulation’s, of the inequality of its energy, as efficiently as it can. Small eruptions of bubbling boiling froth appear to be spattered about.
Currents of winds, change the atmosphere. Stirring the fire to vigorous energies. Aromatic ambrosial scented vapors fill the nostrils.
Keepers of the flame may have to be refined, for the efficient equality of distributing the fuel, so as not have it boil over and destroy the savory flavors of the broth.
Appetites to be satisfied, Hunger grows for the evolutionary broth. Fodder for the beast within us.

The Myth of America.
Nixon to Bush 2008 and all republicans in between have advocated support to policies that serve to increase inequality within our financial institutions. Results are not supportive for nation that had one time been the leader of the free world. America the land of opportunity has faded into the realms of Myths. Inequality has grown. Emulating similar depths of financial inequality to the Great Depression’s. Republicans maintain and advocate redundant failed ideologies. Fromm the least of them to the greatest, all promote in one measure or another, to increase our inequality. Sweden’s , for one example has already demonstrated their success in stabilizing their inequality problems. USA continues to increase inequality and their affects are divesting to our democracy’s security.
Observe our Health Care and how long it has been suppressed by republicans as they continue to do so. Children in poverty in the USA have reached third world standards. Lack of health and escalating poverty, compounds a higher probability for collapse, ruin of our nation. How do we measure up through the eyes of the World Bank?
World Bank merits may not be acceptable to the some but I‘ll take their word over callow comments, any day... Never the less, you can take this to the Bank.
Health Care policies has been evaluated by the “World Bank” No doubt to determine our risk factors.
Medicaid programs have been scaled back.{“Poison Pill”} as one example. Increasing our losses to health issues.“Especially among the impoverished. Life expectancy in the USA is 78 years, lower than Japan’s 83 years or Australia’s or Israel’s 82 years…. 2009 “World Bank” USA ranked fortieth overall, just below Cuba.
Infant and maternal mortality rate in USA is greater than Cuba, Belarus, Malaysia, to name a few. Impoverished USA civilians have a 10% lower life expectancy than those at the top.
1st in overall health care expenditure and
2nd in total health expenditure as % of GDP...but
37TH in the WHO ranking of the world’s health system performance...and
72nd in overall level of health!
44th of 224 countries in Infant mortality
121st of 223 countries in overall death rate
50th of 224 countries in life expectancy
Sources include the CIA Fact Book, the World Health Organization, and the United Health Foundation
Indicates its time for a cool, cool change in our Health Care systems.

Voter Harassment, Circa 2012

This is how voter intimidation worked in 1966: White teenagers in Americus, Ga., harassed black citizens in line to vote, and the police refused to intervene. Black plantation workers in Mississippi had to vote in plantation stores, overseen by their bosses. Black voters in Choctaw County, Ala., had to hand their ballots directly to white election officials for inspection.

This is how it works today: In an ostensible hunt for voter fraud, a Tea Party group, True the Vote, descends on a largely minority precinct and combs the registration records for the slightest misspelling or address error. It uses this information to challenge voters at the polls, and though almost every challenge is baseless, the arguments and delays frustrate those in line and reduce turnout.
The thing that’s different from the days of overt discrimination is the phony pretext of combating voter fraud. Voter identity fraud is all but nonexistent, but the assertion that it might exist is used as an excuse to reduce the political rights of minorities, the poor, students, older Americans and other groups that tend to vote Democratic.
In The Times on Monday, Stephanie Saul described how the plan works. True the Vote grew out of a Tea Party group in Texas, the King Street Patriots, with the assistance of Americans for Prosperity, a group founded by the Koch brothers that works to elect conservative Republicans. It has developed its own software to check voter registration lists against driver’s license and property records. Those kinds of database matches are notoriously unreliable because names and addresses are often slightly different in various databases, but the group uses this technique to challenge more voters.
In 2009 and 2010, for example, the group focused on the Houston Congressional district represented by Sheila Jackson Lee, a black Democrat. After poring over the records for five months, True the Vote came up with a list of 500 names it considered suspicious and challenged them with election authorities. Officials put these voters on “suspense,” requiring additional proof of address, but in most cases voters had simply changed addresses. That didn’t stop the group from sending dozens of white “poll watchers” to precincts in the district during the 2010 elections, deliberately creating friction with black voters.
On the day of the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, the group used inaccurate lists to slow down student voting at Lawrence University in Appleton with intrusive identity checks. Three election “observers,” including one from True the Vote, were so disruptive that a clerk gave them two warnings, but the ploy was effective: many students gave up waiting in line and didn’t vote.
True the Vote, now active in 30 states, hopes to train hundreds of thousands of poll watchers to make the experience of voting like “driving and seeing the police following you,” as one of the group’s leaders put it.(Not surprisingly, the group is also active in the voter ID movement, with similar goals.) These activities “present a real danger to the fair administration of elections and to the fundamental freedom to vote,” as a recent report by Common Cause and Demos put it.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits intimidation or interference in the act of voting, but the penalties are fairly light. Many states have tougher laws, but they won’t work unless law enforcement officials use them to crack down on the illegal activities — handed down from Jim Crow days — of True the Vote and similar groups.

Republican senators “stood firm with Mitt Romney and his 1 percent lobbyist friends” when they successfully filibustered the Bring Jobs Home Act yesterday, [July 19 2012] The bill would cut taxes for U.S. companies that bring jobs and business operations back to the United States and end tax loopholes that reward companies that ship jobs overseas

Are we smarter than the Baboons?
Republicans advocate smaller government and laissez-faire ideologies. Strategy of the most primitive life forms disagree!
From the viruses through bacteria’s and on to the vegetative and animal kingdom, unification of an organized society is demonstrated. Centralized organization to enhance their security as well as empowering them to succeed in their environment is detrimental to their survival.
Sovereignties of the world are demonstrating that strategy. Organizing and reorganizing to compete with the surrounding nations. Observe the reorganizing of orthodox communism to compete on the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. Democratic principles are required that were once their nemesis. Evolving to adapt for their survival as a culture and a nation.
Reduction of that organizing ideology serves to regress the survival mode of any organism on this planet. Greater organized unification of their society enhances their security and empowers them to adapt to their environment.
Republicans are the antithesis to evolution.

Computer Assisted Medical Health Care
Imagine establishing a Medical Network with Web sites that are only for the Medical Field for use. All Medical Facilities inter connected in real time. Example; A patient just boarded an airline, after being treated in some obscured area of the nation. Gets off the plane and promptly faints. Unconscious at the Hospital. No ID., No Medical Records. What is Doctor to do? Start at ground zero and diagnosis with no knowledge of previous treatments and medications. Good luck with that!
Now with a computer, Doctor, accesses the “Network” and could instantly know who is the patient and the medical history. How much would that save in litigations alone and how many lives saved.
New Medical procedures at doctors finger tips and to do it.
Diagnosis’ assisted sites. Just a couple of examples of the $Billions that would save lives and life quality to patient increases.
How about Pharmaceuticals? They would have instant knowledge of all prescriptions’ and the ability to view any abusive pill pushing scenarios. Whether it is the patient producing the abuse or the doctor or a simple error.
Addictions go down and less incarcerations as well as litigations. Again $Billions saved.
How about administration? Digitized Medical records. Instant red flag for any false entries or suspicious entries. Brick and Mortar facilities diminished for storage as well as the energies to sustain them. Again savings of litigation cost amounting into the $Multibillions. These are just a few examples of the hundreds of various associated fields and their scenarios.
Mission Impossible? NOPE Obama has already started to do just that. Has been for the past 2.5 years and is hoping to have it fully functional by the year 2018. Today you may find it starting to enter the administration departments and Health Care insurances .With Obama and strong Democrat support the USA is not down and out but poised to accelerate to once again be the leader of the Free World.

Even your Captain America FINALLY admits to their distorted accusations on that. http://youtu.be/WKH5rLVhxK4 As for burial insurance is all you need with republican Health Care is closer to the truth. Observe their Health Care as described by the Tea party; http://youtu.be/6ik4f1dRbP8
As you can deduce this Health Care would produce higher demand for burial services. Prefer Obamacare…
