I don't care how many times you try to change the subject, slavery is not legal in Israel.
Why do you have to be such a dick all the time? Every response you ever make contains a derogatory slur directed at the person you are replying to. Maybe that is why people don't like fags. Not because they like having sex with the same gender but because they are such repugnant conversationalists.

If you do not believe human slavery is rampant in Israel, just don't believe it. Forget that prostitution is legal in Israel and that the majority of prostitutes in Israel are foreign workers brought there on false pretenses and turned into whores. Just ignore all of that. But, you don't have to toss insults at me for bringing it up.

People need to understand who wrote Obamacare. It wasn't he Democrat party. It was written by lobbyists to benefit the companies they represent. Guess which ones!. They took the idea of Romneycare and added so much pork and other BS that it will just be another bloated underfunded entitlement program. The government has supposedly the funds to keep it running for a couple of years. That is if they haven't already spent most of the money collected for it. After that the individual states will have to cough up the money. Many are facing budget shortfalls now.

Follow the money.

Despite expiring patents on blockbuster drugs and a wave of new regulation from the Affordable Care Act that will cost drug makers, the pharmaceutical industry will reap between “$10 billion and $35 billion in additional profits over the next decade,” a new analysis shows.

The health law, which will bring millions of uninsured Americans health benefits beginning in January 2014, will be a critical boon to pharmaceutical industry balance sheets, increasing revenue by one-third by the end of the decade, according to a new report from research and consulting firm GlobalData of London. That means the U.S. pharmaceutical industry’s market value will mushroom by 33 percent to $476 billion in 2020 from $359 billion last year.

Oh, brother, talk about the pot calling the kettle black. You have no problem aiming vulgar jibes and jokes at anyone who disagrees with you and denigrating anyone who complains about it but just let someone aim a joke at you and all hell breaks loose. You're just about the biggest hypocrite on here.
LOL! Ahhhh, pulling the "profanity card" I see. Okay, I'll bite.

First of all, you're not telling the truth, racer. I don't use cuss words toward people simply because they disagree with me. That's your first lie.

When people insult me, lie about me, and lodge filthy and outrageous insults about my son, I call them what they are and what they deserve.

I didn't call you any names or use any profanity in my comments to you. You're simply angry because I got the better of you, so you resort to that worn out accusation about profanity. I've seen some of your nasty comments, racer, so you're no one to be making accusations.

"but just let someone aim a joke at you and all hell breaks loose."

Another distortion of the truth aka a lie.

I didn't like your joke. I found it stupid, but all hell did not break loose over it.

Your fragile little ego just couldn't stand someone criticizing your silly joke. It didn't offend me--I just found it stupid and a lame attempt to reverse the "race card."

Grow up.

Tens of Millions Still Left Behind

A recent study from Harvard school of Public Health estimates that once the ACA fully takes effect, at least 30 million people will still have no health insurance. These will be people who are not poor enough to be covered from the Medicaid programs but are too poor to afford health insurance. But now they will be punished because of their poverty and have to pay a fine of $95 per year. And they will still have to navigate the safety net hospitals and clinics, like the public hospitals that are losing funding, extremely understaffed and way overcrowded.

Follow the money.

The health insurance companies fought hard to get the ACA passed because they see it as a gold mine. Because the legislation requires people to buy health insurance, these companies expect to be getting money from at least 30 million more people over the next few years. The profits of health insurance companies over this period are expected to increase about $200 billion per year. Many experts expect premiums and health care costs to increase after the ACA goes into effect – from 100 to 400 percent – as insurance companies will raise premiums, and hospitals, drug companies and others will increase their prices. Since the largest Pharmaceutical companies had a hand in writing the health care bill, they blocked any further federal regulations on drug pricing. So prescription drug costs are likely to rise for all patients, increasing the profits of the drug companies by an estimated $60 billion per year.

Funny jax you want business's to pay a "living wage" and support a guest worker program even though you support amnesty for the millions that are here and depressed those wages.. How do you explain that fact?? You simply can't have it both ways.. You want a guest worker program then support attrition through enforcement.. And tough enforcement at that with some teeth into the bill..

What makes you think I support amnesty?

I've been pretty clear about the fact that I don't support the path toward citizenship as part of any reforms. I just happen to believe that to get a handle on this thing we are going to have to be open to some compromises and a lot more comprehensive than a simple enforcement strategy.

Higher Labor Costs In China Could Send Manufacturing Jobs Back To The US
http://www.mintpressnews.com/higher-labor-cos...
With more than 97 percent of all apparel and 98 percent of all footwear sold in America made overseas — by during the 1960s’ about 95 percent of all American-sold attire was made in the United States — a call toward an increase in American-made goods could have significant benefits for the American economy and for job growth. Over the last ten years, America has lost nearly a third of its manufacturing jobs due to outsourcing.

I happen to know a Salvadorian man who has 30 brothers. I have meet all thirty of his brothers and their families. I even met his 78 year old father and his father's 17 year old wife when they came up from El Salvador to visit. Not all of them are undocumented. In fact, most of the brothers received amnesty under Regan/Bush. Some of them are married to undocumented immigrants, Salvadorian women that they brought up here on tourist visas that they overstayed. Their children are all native born U.S. Citizens and all are receiving public assistance. The men who are permanent residents aren't the ones applying for the benefits. It's the undocumented mothers of these U.S. Citizen children who are filling out the applications and I've eavesdropped on conversations between the "bilingual" social services representatives and the "undocumented" babies mamas. They are much more cordial with one another speaking in their native tongue that they are when they have to attend to someone who is English only. Looking at me, they are positive that this pinche wedo can't understand a word they are saying when they tell the undocumented woman that she is stupid if she reports her husband's salary or even lists him as a resident in the household. Basically telling her how to defraud the system and make her feel good for doing it.
Anyway, those people eat steaks and drink beer EVERY DAY! Of course they drink that crappy Mexican beer and screw up the meat by cutting it into strips and boiling it. There is a reason that South American cuisine isn't considered "fine dining".
If I were you I'd move out of that crappy fictional town you live in pinche wedo. That town has no use for you, period.

The prostitution rings that you referred to are illegal in Israel.

Pimping is illegal in Israel.

Slavery is illegal in Israel.

You changed the subject to try and support a losing argument and now you are having a hissy fit because you blew that one too.

No,actually I don't have any opinion of whether I like this or lot.
" Whites do not have superior intellect and know how. Every hi=uman no matter their color is different, some are bright, some are very bright, some are middle of the road, some are a little dense, and color has nothing to do with it."
I do actually concur with your statement. I have always felt the same that color has nothing to do with a human's intellect.
A virtual entity can be as superior or as dumb as one wants to be because the whole shebang takes place in the virtual world with a virtual identity which in reality could be represented by a human or something else that, in reality, could in fact be superior to a human. That would make me at the most, a virtual racist...[if] you knew just what my actual color (or species) was in the virtual world as well as the real world.
How can racism exist in the virtual world? Nobody really knows what anyone's color is here?
You just think and assume what my color is but you really don't know for sure, or if I have any color at all (or race) for that matter to even be calling me a racist.
You also can't really be sure if I am even human in the virtual world with the technology available today.
Just some food for thought is all.
