Are you really so dense as to not see that Obama is controlled? Reagan and Clinton were their own men.

Now gallop a little closer, all you wingnut cro magnons. First of all you must realize that you're out of step with the majority of Americans. You can go on enjoying one another's mindless smears of Obama. One thing you can't change however, is the fact that Barack Obama a brilliant, compassionate, visionary leader. He is being thwarted by an obstructionist GOP, who want to stop him from accomplishing some very important goals for America, even if it means harming the people.
Turning a record number of full time jobs into part time jobs isn't harming the people?

I can see why some people would see it as a negative thing, but I think universal health care is a positive thing, yes.
I shouldn't be responsible for the consequences of YOUR lifestyle choices (the most and the most expensive medical care is due to the consequences of VOLUNTARY choices). You pay for you, I'll pay for me. That's the only fair way. Unless you're using the leech's definition of fair.

I've watched my cousin have to deal with any parent's nightmare while her son battled a rare disease, HLH, having to choose between paying her bills to keep her house and business and making sure her son had access to life-saving treatments in great facilities. She's one of the lucky ones - her son survived, but at great sacrifice. I don't think any parent should have to lose everything to save their child's life.

Shall I post all of George W's flubs? That guy was an awful public speaker. I had the honor of meeting Obama today. Drove the guest van in his motorcade to and from the stadium. He had a commanding presence. I would say he's a very articulate, well-spoken man.
Good grief! Have you heard him speak without a telepromter?

A statement by virtually any high ranking member of the Democratic Party, and such as for instance Obama, that he wants a lot more members of the general public to be informed should be taken exactly as seriously as if a year before Bernard Madoff was unmasked and exposed as a total fraud, Madoff had gotten up and made a speech in which he declared he wanted the SEC to do a thorough and extremely competent job in regulating the securities industry and in finding fraud.

In other words without the votes of the uneducated and uninformed, the Democratic Party would have absolutely no chance to win elections, and even if it engaged in three times as much fraud as it already does.

More specifically, the Democratic Party and the winning majority of votes it sometimes manages to obtain is primarily composed of a combination of the uneducated, the uninformed, the gullible, crooked lawyers, demagogues, charlatans, and vote fraud.

In fact to learn more about the "standards" of lawyers, and who are an extremely important part of the Democratic Party, type in the search terms "Danny Reed" and "Karen de Sa."

(NOTE: Karen de Sa is a reporter for the San Jose Mercury News; and Danny Reed is a guy who had some extremely interesting experiences with some lawyers who I am sure would insist that the legal profession is primarily composed of very honest and highly ethical people, and who I am sure would also insist that the legal profession is not primarily a sleazy mafia mostly composed of parasites, total scumbags, thieves, con men, ripoff artists, and blood sucking leeches.)

Obamacare is NOT universal health care.

You'd have to LEAVE the United States to have that!

People DO die here. That argument would fly if there weren't people who are dropped from their insurance companies or parents who have to bury children because they did not have access to GOOD health care.

Then call me dense, I don't really worry about it. Reagan was a dirty politician in my book. I have no beef with Clinton. Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.

You are responsible for other people's lifestyle choices already. Why do you think insurance is so expensive? Are you really that ignorant to know understand that if we lived in a nation filled with healthier people, insurance costs wouldn't be so ridiculous?

The difference between me and you is that I'm not a selfish person. If me paying more taxes means that a child will have access to adequate health care and live a longer life, I'm more than happy to that. I have this crazy notion that people should have access to proper medical care. I guess I'm just a selfish a-hole, though. Damn people who care about others. What dirty, rotten people.

Don't mind if I do. But just make sure YOU never take advantage of anything free or discounted to make sure you stick to your convictions. That includes letting your employer, if you have one, paying for any part of your insurance. Make sure you take care of all your financial business yourself without any help from anyone or anything.
