Three for three.

A typo is a typing mistake.

P.S. Believe me, you would not address me in such a manner if we were face to face. Or, at least you would not do it twice.

Love Orwell and Thoreau, though Henry David is a bit strident. Not familiar with the others. The best sum of my political philosophy is H.G. Wells' "In the Days of the Comet." Obscure, but brilliant.
Government regulation is indeed complicated and inefficient. I've quite bit of experience with environmental regulation, which is as messy as the tax code. But, those who complain the worst (and, again, I have experience with this) are usually those who have done their best to make it that way by opposing reasonable regulation. Over and over, lobbyists carve out nonsensical exceptions for their clients and then complain that the system is too burdensome when they are asked to certify that the exemption really applied to them.
It is essential, as far as I am concerned, to reduce corporate power and get rid of the ridiculous idea that corporations are people. The Constitution gives folks a right to private property, but in no way authorizes irresponsible use of that property, nor does it magically endow that property with a persona of its own. Our founding fathers, especially Jefferson, the Tea Party hero, would be appalled by the rights we given to corporations.
The other thing we need to do, all of us, is fight back against the tacit acceptance of genuine evil in the political arena. Citizens must learn to reject those politicians and leaders who promote hate. I read some posts here and think, "Is that really the person that this poster wants to be?" If it is, then I am deeply sorry for them.
All reasonable; one sided, but a reasonable set of assertations from that side.

Not a threat. Merely pointing out that folks like you who feel so big on the internet are generally complete cowards in person. My guess is that that is you to a tee. In person, you might try mouthing off once, as an experiment, but you'd realize your mistake immediately. Then you'd get as far away from me as possible as quickly as possible. And, then you'd bitterly replay the moment in your mind as proof of how very tough and clever you are.

I think we all have a side. It's hard to avoid. I'm trying however to get to the point where side I choose is the one that advances us as a people, rather than the partisan perspective (I actually spend more time complaining about dems than about reps, though I support far more of the dems ideas.)

The percentage of authorized workers run through E-Verify who receive tentative non-confirmations is 0.3 percent (three-tenths of one percent), and has been for at least two and a half years.

Statistics from Fiscal Year 2010, however, indicate that of the 15,640,167 E-Verify cases submitted:
•98.3% were automatically confirmed as work authorized,

•0.3% were confirmed as work authorized after contesting and resolving an initial nonconfirmationan avenue available to all workers

•1.43% were not found work authorized (these would be illegal aliens or legal foreign visitors without a work permit -- the very people E-Verify is designed to keep out of U.S. jobs)

So, to make sure you understand, the so-called error rate is 0.3% which means that less than half of one percent of the people run through the system get a notice that they are not yet approved to work even though it turns out they do have the right to work.

Next, be clear that this 0.3% don't lose their job. Rather, they continue on their job while checking with federal authorities to find out why they are not being confirmed and getting their records straight. The fact that 0.3% of the queries produce an "error" doesn't mean that anybody who has the legal right to a job doesn't get to keep the job.

I bring this up because a correspondent at NPR erroneously reported a 20 percent rate. E-Verify works.

Maybe we should hire ALL the "red light speeders" to get paid by the PO so they can pay their overdue
RLS tickets. They would surly speed up the deliver of your weekly coupons.

Age would be no limit, under or over.

Bipolar or Bisexual. Whether or not they can ride a horse. They could talk to each other - giddyap.
Laugh all the way to the feed bank.

All the former PO employees could go work for the new casino.

Lets build a 200,000 sq ft casino in the LC area.
Call it the Farmers & Craft Casino for residents only. No ID or drivers license required and they could register to vote for their favorite judge. Only those with 3 or more DUI can gamble.

Chances of being a weiner are 1 in 435.

Children over 26 not allowed, if not living at home. No one allowed in the parking area with a car less than 35 years old. Cars need not be registered or insured and drivers need not be licnesed.

Thoughts for the day.

Mr. Obama, you've changed...

Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

- Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), March 20, 2006.

But amigo -

You have no right to impose your side on your countrymen through the force of government.

If you beleive the intent of the Ds to be better YOU have to live it voluntarily and demonstrate to your neighbors that their self interest wouild also be best served by doing so ...

... not legislate that they MUST do so ... that is the problem with the parties - not the intent of either (although I find the intent of R's theocracy and D's classism pretty bloody disgusting - I don't have the right to legislate that you NOT beleive that we should listen to a magic cloud man or hate the rich/productive)

a little more time and a few more "unbiased lectures" and you too will become a true believer in the magic cloud man known as Obama.

All of those Waivers going to unions, San Fransico companies, and big companies tell you just how bad the Obamam plan is.
The one issue on this is if it is constitutional or not by forcing people to buy health insurance.
The bigger issue I see is only forcing a select section of the US population to participate. That is like saying those of you I like can kill someone and there are no charges against you but If I don't like you you get the chair. Laws have to bind one and all or they are not laws.
Laws that bind me to Obama care and not Nancy Pelosi's friends or Obama's contibutors is clearly not consitutional.
If the plan is so great then EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN should be required to participate. This includes civil servants, representatives and yes even the President and ex Presidents.
Ammazing how great a plan this is and they have already issues around 2000 waivers and are going strong to issue more.
First let me start off by saying that in my original comment I'm going to correct an error by placing it in all caps within the quote.

<Sound Off Caller's quote: "Mitt Romney officially announced, running as a Republican presidential candidate. Sadly, he is running as fast as he can from the most successful state health program in our country and the model for the affordable health care passed by Obama.">

You're disseminating misinformation: Obama's health care plan and Obama's camp claim that OBAMA's plan is based on what Romney did as governor. The only problem is that Mitt Romney's plan was approximately 77 pages long; where Obama's version is well over 2000 pages long.
That is one heck of a difference!!! Have you ever bothered to check out why it is so drastically different than what Mitt Romney's successful plan? Obama's is far FROM successful or affordable. A well informed person would recognize that fact too!!! Can you say pork, pork, and more pork with regard to Obama's version!


Just as you have your concerns, I have mine based on the details of the 70 something Mitt Romney plan being somewhat a success; however, for Obama's camp and his administration to be touting & giving Romney credit for their health care plan will surely backfire on Obama. His health care proposal and the final version was packed with so much bull that a person's head could spin trying to keep up with every single point that will ultimately egregiously effect & affect our children and grandchildren for generations to come. They'll be so straddled with debt, and let's not forget that employers will in likelihood drop any options of medical care coverage upon it going into full effect (meaning every aspect of it).

People gripe now about medicare rendered health care services, about veterans health care currently available...this is going to result in [pardon the language]--a cluster f#ck mess.

This was among one of several articles I have read since the latter part of last year.

http://www.10news.com/health/27873895/detail....

Having worked in the political arena, I will predict that as long as Obama's camp keeps giving kudos to Romney (in an effort to remove his as best contender for POTUS) might just backfire because there are many who only backed Obama based on the health care issue but feel disenfranchised by him now. Then the Republican contenders that think they stand a snowball's chance in Hades are equally foolish for taking Romney to task for the Obama version (fiasco). They're just playing into what Obama's camp is hoping...to eliminate Romney as the primary contender.

Then I read Orville's hype about Romney's theological beliefs...to which I say boo! I gave OW more credit than to get hung up on an irrelevant factor...especially when he/she presumes to know what Romney's theological beliefs really consist of which have never been disclosed.

...to remove HIM as best contender...

Hopefully that was the only error.
