People who are against the health care bill have no scruples. Catholic nuns are urging passage of the health care bill.

A woman in a Louboutin has to be special. It is these shoes that make her so special that no two can resist her two look. They are the style statement among high society women. You do not believe me; then ask some women who own them. They have a mesmerizing appeal, which is no less than a mass hypnotism, and women drive in its spell.

It`s hard to believe this story. If it`s true, that`s cold. Nobody should be without compassion for someone who suffers from such a dibilitating illness. On another note I`m sure his care is already being provided for by the taxpayers, so there`s no need for O`Bumacare to pass. Someone like this person I have no problem with my tax dollars being used to take care of him. And we owe the seniors to see to it that they are taken care of as well. It`s the free loaders and illegals I have a problem with my tax dollars going to support. Too much free money and entitlements going to these scum suckers.

Ok, this is uncalled for. But the national divide is about more than health care. It is about an arrogant elitist government which cares more about its special interest winer/diners than the people it is supposed to represent.

We are in the midst of a tax revolt which will become more and more evident as the year rolls on. As the elections in VA, NJ, and MA have shown, there will be a power shift in November. But the federal government has promised much more than it can ever deliver, while alienating the productive class at the same time.

The hate is reaching a boiling point. We are fast approaching DefCon3, the People v. the Political Class.

Unlike the LIES we have heard from the frightwingers, the bill does not provide for abortions. Instead, the bill provides MILLIONS of dollars to support pregnant women who may choose to keep their children or offer them for adoption. Nuns urge the passage of the health care bill because it is PRO LIFE.

Maybe health care reform can provide the desperately needed mental help for those cretins who made fun of a sick man.

First of all, do you believe everything you read? And this guy looks old enough to be on Medicare...no chance he's fibbing. And Iria? Enough said.

Catholics are all about charity. They take money from the desperately poor on the steps of the Vatican. How do you think they buy all those gold chalices and jewel encrusted crosses?

Freemason Obama's bible verse.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

You're probably right (sarcasm). I'm sure Catholic nuns are more informed about the particulars of this bill than the Democratic congressmen, who have been working on it for over a year now and who won't vote for it because it provides federal funds for abortions.

Chances are that a lot of families ( possibly his own ) are going broke paying for insurance and medical costs associated with the dissease, something that I know firsthand since a close family member died from it. When I saw that video, I found it repulsive, but was neither shocked nor surprised at seeing the way that those protesters treated the Parkinson's victim since I fully expected that to be their reaction and they didn't fail to disappoint my already low expectations of them.

That was my reaction as well. The only good thing about the video is that at least the nation can see some of the protesters in this Tea Bagger movement in their true form. Their mask with its thin veneer of civility (i.e. claims of "compassion", using different means to achieve the same agreed upon ends) has been torn away to reveal the cruel monsters that such people like these truly are.

The Nuns want health care because the super rich Catholic church does not provide it for them. They are left to beg for public assistance.

Barack Obama red-faced after Special Olympics jibe on Leno Show
It was all going so well as the President chatted to Jay Leno. Then he made a crack about the Special Olympics ...

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/u...

Then ... he made a joke about the Special Olympics.

It seemed to pop out of nowhere. One minute he was being all warm and self-deprecating, the next he was making fun of the disabled.
