BULLSH*T. Someone making over $200,000 grand a year paying 0.9% more in Medicare taxes affects me not at ALL- other than possibly helping to insure that Medicare will still exist when I become eligible for it.

I have NO problem with taxes being raised- not even my own.

Then again, I AM a good American and while never pleasant or something anyone wants, taxes going up is a necessary "evil" and like anything else, as the cost of doing business increases, those costs get passed on to the consumer.

And sorry, bub- Obama did NOT raise taxes on ME or on YOU- he raised taxes on those who can AFFORD it.

Gee- it seems you didn't even KNOW whose taxes were raised that 0.9%.

How could you have when you say he raised taxes on "us" when the FACT of the matter is he raised taxes on the upper income folks?

Paty, you claim or questioned that an acorn does nto have DNA. All living things have DNA.

"Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is an informational molecule encoding the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses."

"
What is DNA?

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a personís body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA)."

DNA
1.
Genetics. deoxyribonucleic acid: an extremely long macromolecule that is the main component of chromosomes and is the material that transfers genetic characteristics in all life forms, constructed of two nucleotide strands coiled around each other in a ladderlike arrangement with the sidepieces composed of alternating phosphate and deoxyribose units and the rungs composed of the purine and pyrimidine bases adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine: the genetic information of DNA is encoded in the sequence of the bases and is transcribed as the strands unwind and replicate. Compare base pair, gene, genetic code, RNA.
2.
the set of nongenetic traits, qualities, or features that characterize a person or thing: Humility is just not in her DNA.

Because I should be in control of my body, not you. Do you want me in control of yours?

I have no idea what you are talking about with the hot dog remark.

And actually, I was defending what you posted to RR- not criticizing it.

I see that you're just as defensive as you were some time ago, Pat....I wouldn't expect that to change, but you took offense when not only was none intended, nothing was posted for you to take offense about.

No- but it IS a right for people to just drop dead for no other reason than not being able to AFFORD insurance or health care, right?
Correct.
Obamacare is a MISNOMER, you dolt. It is NATIONAL health care.
Yes, it is an apt misnomer.
Hey- no one will be forced to have insurance; if they don't, they run the risk of not being treated.
Bullshit. If you don't have insurance you pay a fine (fancy word for tax).

Nope- you're a fear monger. No matter what happens, health insurers will NOT be put of out business or become government owned businesses any more than auto or home insurers are.
Time will tell....
But- good Christian that you are- you're just fine and dandy with people dropping dead for no other reason than not being able to access or afford health care.
Correct. I'm not at all for government handouts. If people want good health care, they should strive to be better & go buy it.

If you were the good American you claim to be (but are NOT), you would see the value in a HEALTHY citizenry and how that impacts our free enterprise system, since a HEALTHY work force is a PRODUCTIVE work force. The more Americans can produce, the healthier our economy is and the better our free enterprise systems works.
You're wrong. In all for good health care. I'm all for a healthier America.

I'm NOT for free healthcare. It isn't a right to have good health, it's a choice.

I'm not comfortable watching some fat ass pigging out on McDonald's or some crack head sleeping in the gutter knowing that MY tax money is paying for them to be "healthier". They obviously don't wanna be healthy.

I'm not sure if Obama has added to our astounding debt to the Chinese which GW created, but taxing the wealthy in this country a paltry additional 0.9% in Medicare tax is hardly reason to feel sorry for the wealthy or for ANYONE for that matter.

Of course, those complaining about such a paltry tax increase will be the ones crying, screaming and whining the loudest should there be NO Medicare for them when they become eligible.

The debate is not over. Other scientists disagree.

Just to try to clarify:

RR said: Then clearly it would be stupid to allow drugs to be legal and easier to get.

That was in response to what you said about obese people, so my point to RR was that if it would be stupid to allow drugs to be legal and easier to get, why would it be stupid to ban fatty and artery clogging foods which also put one at risk when behind the wheel as you stated and correctly so?

The hot dog remark was also addressed to RR- since some weeks ago, he said that all Americans should eat hot dogs.

Hope this helps.

So the above people who are the ones who will be affected by the 0.9% Medicare tax increase are of great concern to you?
Do YOU fall into ANY of the above categories regarding your income?
If not, WTF is it to you?
You're a SHILL for the rich, RR- just the way the rich want it.
I disagree with taxes being raised in anyone, especially during a recession.

You're not talking about super rich, you're talking about everyday people; lawyers, professors, dentist, contractors, etc all who'll be affected by the tax hike and in turn charge us more for their services to help offset their loss.

It's a lose-lose situation, except for the government...

I know- my question to RR was asked facetiously.

And I'm sure RR will agree with you while championing that as American free enterprise where all too often that includes thinking "the public be damned!"

During World War II, the writer/journalist Evelyn Waugh was trapped in Europe in the company of Randolph Churchill, the boorish son of Winston Churchill. "In the hope of keeping him quiet," he wrote to Nancy Mitford, "I bet him 20 that he cannot read the whole Bible in a fortnight. Unhappily it has not had the result we hoped. He has never read any of it before and is hideously excited; keeps reading quotations aloud...or merely slapping his side and chortling,'God, isn't God a shit!'"
