Now I think USA 1 is a troll too, a really bad one, that thinks he's funny by aping that really bad movie, Borat.
BTW, Obama's speech about Mandela was touching but he borrowed a line from Jack Nicholson in "As Good as it Gets." He says to Helen Hunt "You make me want to be a better man."

I wouldn't go as far to label WeirdoWillie or Hippohog as Raptors, you'd be implying that they're predatory in nature, which would offend WeirdoWillie's I'm better than you, because I take the highroad sensibilities. A better way to look at it, is they're a couple of fear biting dogs, that attack when you turn your back on them. I labeled the idiot 'CHOCOLATE FACE' and 'Somalian Pirate' awhile ago on another thread, because between his pigeon English and Marxist anti Western ideologies, he reminded me of a one of those predatory internet scammers out of Africa. I started throwing those two names at him which have stuck, which has caused him to spend more time responding back to me declaring he's not a 'chocolate' or not 'pirate' and less time spamming his anti American commie propaganda. I find it truly amazing how many posters on this thread immediately chastised me for my posts directed at him and lambasted Bob for a couple of pages, because he stated what he'd like to do to the commie troll if he could get his hands on him. If that makes me a 'particularly bad troll' so be it; but weather you're a liberal or conservative, I'd think one would take great offence to the hateful and despicable inflammatory statements, that CHOCOLATE FACE makes about this country and the men and women who have bravely served it. He has made statements saying that the United States has caused every war sense WW-I and that despotic regimes like Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were victims of the United States and its military industrial complexe's aggressions. But hey, I guess I'm the bad guy and troll for insulting the dumb Somali pirate. <¦-o

Some of the explanations I've heard remind me of liar Clinton saying it depends on what is is. Even Obama himself has backtracked but the best was a few weeks ago when even his lies couldn't be dismissed and was at a loss for words. It's real simple, few are going to pay more, way more for less, all the liberal add campaigns and marketing won't make this pile of crap look good. And when many of the exemptions that were granted to certain companies expire gee wonder what will happen?

Scott never intended to govern. He always intended to do to FL what he did privately - rip off everyone he could. He's doing what the other GOP govs are doing - screaming about poverty while they sell off their states' assets for pennies on the dollar in deals that THEY profit from.

Its the GOP treating America the exact same way Romney and Bain Capitol treated the companies they gutted, and the pensions they stole from American workers to pay themselves millions for destroying American companies, towns and lives.

This is who they are. This is what they intend to do anywhere they can. Detroit is bankrupt? No money to honor the pensions that workers paid into? But the Republicans "overseeing" the bankruptcy of Detroit are doing exactly what Mitt did - pocketing HUGE fees from the assets, including pension funds, to pay themselves for raping American workers.


THAT is the GOP. If we allow them to remain in public office, we deserve what they do. They only are getting away with this because we haven't stopped them yet. As long as there is a penny to steal, they will not stop unless they are stopped."-Ivan Grey

And Willie says I'm paranoid. Heard a few days ago an idea that was floated: sell the national parks. I would do it. Flake libs and flake GOP folks for years have been making promises they can't deliver on to get elected. Just kick the can down the road, let it be someone else's problem. Now the bill is due and we can't pay. Our childern's children will be in debt and you are still playin the blame game.

To whom would you be willing to sell away our national parks, Chris?
Canada?
Japan?
China?
Iraq, perhaps?

You were chastised for your posts directed at it because all you did is encourage it, and up the number of posts it made.

You didn't even cut down on the number of posts it made insulting veterans and spewing out nonsensical bilge. It still made those while repetitively replying to your repetitive insults.

The net result was to increase its production.

You're right, if you mean that we read along quietly and then seemingly "out of nowhere" comment on another's post. Guilty as charged.

Kinda like yours here. No, exactly like yours here.

The difference being, our comment was on the content of the post,

while your comment was on the content of the poster's character.

It is stipulated you will fail to see the distinction.......and the beat goes on.

Lit is much better at saying this but I think we are in a bad situation. We may not make it. If we do ever dig out of this its going to take some extraordinary action. I don't really want to see the national parks owed by anyone but us but if we are critical shouldn't we do what we have to to save the nation? I know, just more paranoia.

Also numerous doctors (70%?) have said they will either retire early or refuse to participate in Obamacare. Thank God doctors cannot be forced to participate.

The Republicans won't hafta worry about repealing the HC law. Next year, it'll collapse on it's own. It's just unfortunate that's what
it will take b4 Obama and the rest of the ACA Democrats are made to come to their senses over something that never should have gone forward in the 1st place.

And that's yet another reason why the rookie-in-chief never should've been elected. People chose him over Romney, and got exactly what they asked for.
Obama is a sock puppet.
He had just the right mix of charisma and cool to get elected.

Nothing could have moved this fast without the groundwork already being laid. Possibly for decades or even longer.(imo)

Who laid it you say?
Glad you asked, Follow the money.

Regarding "The Republicans won't hafta worry about repealing the HC law. Next year, it'll collapse on it's own."

I don't think it will happen.

If anyone is interested

I talked with my Ins. agent this morning. The best choice for me was to go off OC and just go through the insurer. I didnt qualify for subsidies. I didnt expect to either. Anyone who owns a business is basically not gonna get a subsidy as they go by gross income meaning there is nothing you can deduct including the cost of goods sold.

The policies are a little cheaper off the exchange but not much. I did find out that some preventative is free, but not all. The only thing it covers for a male is a colonoscopy, but if that colonoscopy turns into a procedure its not covered. IOW if they find polops and remove them it goes from a free colonoscopy to a 5-8 thousand dollar procedure that goes toward your deductible.

No free doctor visits, no copays. I pay 100% until the deductible is met.$10,400 OOP costs.

I called the clinic to schedule an appointment for my physical they are booked until 2015. I can get in to see a PA in April or May, but i have to find out if they are in the network before I can even do that.

My agent said she had 200 group plans, and about 40 of them have called to cancel the insurance at the end of Dec. for their employees because they cant afford the policies.

When I talked with the hospital about appointments they were very little help as to whether or not the physical or any of the people I saw would be covered. They know very little about whats going on with the ACA and seemed to be about as confused about things as I was. They basically said schedule the appointment see the doctor or PA and turn it into insurance and see what they say. In other words 'punt'.........

I never thought it possible because of the type of person I am, but I am beginning to see and feel the hatred some people have for Bush that I now am beginning to develop for Obama.

An interesting note on the colonoscopy. I asked the lady at the clinic how many people have a colonoscopy where polops aren't found. She didnt give me a percentage but just said that just about everyone has polops.

Hmmmm.......

Funny I should pop in here right after you posted that, Larry. Me darling hubby had a colonoscopy a week ago today. We were at the hospital for EIGHT HOURS :s but it was worth it, because he had a good report (only diverticulosis, not cancer or polyps), and it won't have to be done again for a long time :)

I TOTALLY sympathize with you on your feelings for Obama :s I didn't start out this way--I was prepared to like him, even WANTED to like him, but little by little I've come to almost hate him, as you have. I'm not proud of that, but it's the truth.

I've popped in for a moment, folks, to say that I will be very busy the next few days getting ready for and running my booth at Santa's Village, where I hope to sell some of my beaded items this weekend. That of course is why you haven't seen much of me over the last few weeks, and I may not be able to pop back in again until next week! I'm sure you understand. But rest assured you ain't got rid of me just yet!

Willie--I know that you did post a reply to me, but I haven't had time to read it carefully and give it the attention it deserves. But I promise you that I WILL be doing that by the end of the coming week and that I will let you know :)

Hugs to you all, and I'll be back in a few days :) In the meantime, cross your fingers for me. I know I won't be making a fortune, but me hubby and I can use every penny I do make.
