You gotta ask the "speaker of the house". Tell us what was in it in a simple manner without any thing hidden. Instead you get a monstrosity at several thousand pages. And plenty of questions. If I am not charged. Fine. Otherwise we will spread th eword more to use the "system'. And no matter how much they tax to use the population as suckers, the deficit will continue to rise. And the prime rate is near zero. Go figure. Now excuse me, there are many more videos on you tube and others of those semi literate unwed mothers with multiple kids cursing,screaming and fighting in public. The real reality tv. Trillions of dollars worth. The gold standard of progressive thinking.

Wow...when you get off on an off topic rant, you really go, don't you?

if sane people thought all bills were suspect' in the way they were passed because of one stupid statement by a legislator, no bills would ever be passed.

i sure see a lot of those semi-literate, If even that, unwed mothers that claim to be staunch conservatives...why is that?

I only know fromworking and living in a city. and more the inner city. Oh the games. the games that are played. But you are right there are people who are conservativw that are like you say. And of course that would be 95% of the collectors from the progressive math that has for some reason, bankrupted and over taxed most most local communities to the point of being beggars to the states and the forced participation unless thy kill you federal government.

"woodtick57"Looking at the world around you objectively is not for the small minded...stop even trying before you hurt yourself..

My mental state is not the topic we are discussing. When one disagrees with another and has no other recourse but to diminish his opponent, he engages in the "ad hominem" argument, a personal attack which comes as a last resort when all other legitimate arguments have been exhausted. My perception of Obama as an undertaker is called hyperbole. Hyperbole is a form of exaggeration which is used to make a point. I see him in this context because unless he is preaching to the masses, he comes across as humorless and burdened with the weight of contrived solemnity. I leave the undertaker image out there because it can be interpreted in any number of ways which is my intent. Critical reading is a higher level of comprehension and interpretation. Those who recognized my imagery as humorous got the point. Obviously, you need to set aside your bliind devotion to a politician of questionable merit and begin educating yourself so that you will fully understand the agenda he and his managers are promoting.

Not sure what this proves, or why it was timed as it was. It may be perfectly legit, but it looks like a political stunt intended to play for sympathy with the gun-nuts.

And in politics, appearance is everything. Kinda silly.

So by that type of thinking, having a doctor sew up a reproducing welfare cow's twa t would have the same affect? What came first, the chicken or the egg? Are we blaming the result of irresponsible thinking in lifestyle choices that last for decades?

but see.... it is your non-objective look at this issue that is entirely my point, so no, it was not an ad hominem. if you took the time and had the ability to look at the issue objectively, you would see that , in fact, Obama is very humorous. most people around him say this is true, even those that disagree with him ideologically.

You are full of it and this is why I think this forum is a joke to some people. The greatest vengeance is getting even using the laws the stupid have enacted. So a responsible person costing less then an irresponsible on will at some point do the same as there is no point to it. In affect, a payer becomes a collector. And this is with laws that guarantee people the ability to collect. this eventually ensures a disruptive population with less resources being allocated. On top of that there is a built in amount of people with very little skills in that situation. America has a nation of a multitude of groups of people. So the klans of groups end up reforming for survival as they feel they are wronged or will protect what others want.

hey1 you actually got one correct. the taking profit out of the health insurance industry will most likely end that industry in a few decades if not sooner.

why do you think ai am full of it? when did i say anything contrary to this? i only pointed out the ridiculousness, and pointlessness of your comment that Obamacare was passed ina suspect way.
