It turns out that Joe Wilson may have picked the wrong time to make his "You lie." statement, but his message was absolutely correct... obama was lying, again.

Get SiriusXM you cheap SOB, then you won't need to polute Texas soil with your presence.

Same question I asked Roberta:
If you had a choice of whose healthcare was paid for, would it be those that contribute to America or those that do not contribute to America?(Consider that those retired are no longer contributing but taking.)
You do know even retired people pay taxes on SS, retirement income, sales and property taxes, don't you? That's not exactly taking.

I'm willing to bet that the property taxes I pay are far higher than yours. Does that make you a "taker"?

<quoted text>I paid for that over the last 42 years and I'm still paying, and when the time comes for me to be on SS and Medicare, I will not feel that I didn't pay my fair share, if I did I wouldn't take it. I will continue to contribute as I will still be paying taxes. Now if you swear to me in a legal document that you will not accept medicare or SS when you come of age, I will do the same. As a matter of fact I'm thinking of all kinds of ways not to be on medicare at all, not because I don't think I deserve it but because I don't want it and the crap that comes with it.
If I became poor I would do anything else but accept government help. We already have our box picked out and plans to go to San Diego if need be.
For the most part, you paid for others and not yourself. And I am sure you did not notice, but you failed to answer my question......or perhaps you did notice and it was intentional.

Medicare will be a secondary policy for me, not a primary. And I am willing to take less Social Security payments PROVIDED it is part of a long-term strategy to save Social Security for our children and grandchildren. Same thing applies to Medicare.

Medical care for workers or non-workers if you could only choose one?

I'm not a doctor, but that hasn't stopped me from providing first aid. Everyone has their opinions about what's driving the man's politics, and I gave you mine. He acts like he's ashamed about the USA success and prosperity, and apologizes at every opportunity he gets. That's not analyzing, that's history, and easily viewable on YouTube.
Every opportunity? I don't notice him apologizing to Pakistan for siccing the Navy Seals on her pet fugitive, or for putting someone as unattractive and classless as Michelle Obama in the position of First Lady of the United States.

Really, Michelle? Jackie O. would slap the crap out of you - I imagine so would Eleanor R. For shame.

Okay, I'm going to amend my original statement: I base [that assertion] on my personal contempt for Obama's plans and policies, regarding the execution of his duties as President. They all suck.

Better?

You're not a smart guy, okb. You don't hit the lottery if your house burns, you lost your house and you still have a mortgage.
This has nothijng to do with "choice" on your personal part. It has to do with whether or not you think it proper to take care of people as a society and if so, who? Workers or non-workers.

If you are against the Healthcare Bill you are against taking care of (for the most part) lower income workers. On the other hand you could also be for the elimination of Medicaid and CHiPS and Medicare all of which is paid for with taxes.

MY answer is that if you are going to take care of the non-productive you better take care of the productive. Otherwise why are they going to work? Honestly, would you take a payraise if it meant you lost Medicaid? Would you buy a home or save money if it meant you lost Medicaid?

In a lot of the country, poor people inherit the homes of their parents and then they lose them because of our social net laws.

Most of the time you hit the lottery if your house burns. During certain periods of time such as the recent housing crisis you might be correct.

By hitting the lottery I mean that you end up with a pocket full of money and the opportunity to do it again. If you don't think that is the lottery, what do you think happens when your house burns down and you have no insurance?

Again, this relates to poor people who own their homes but do not have enough income for home insurance.

I don't know about that. I have multiple houses. They don't necessarilly pay taxes on any of that dependent on income. Capital gains perhaps?

So, your wife is a 'We'll try it your way, then do it my way from now on.' type of gal, huh? My wife was inot 'head-banger' crap. I like the roots of heavy metal, but not the fruition. Grand Funk, Pink Floyd (tho' I tend to disagree that they were metal at all) Fozzy osborne, and the like.
Bobbi said I was a good person for trying to contact my foster brother. Truth is, I wanted to know if he still had the pix of him, me, Don Henley, and Glen Frey, from back in 1970. I'm childish that way. I want proof that we did meet that summer day.
Oh, country rock is always part of my playlist. CCR, The Eagles, Pure Prarie League, Marshall Tucker, et. al.
But, Rock&Roll is in my Soul.

I am not against taking care of other people and if you ever read what I've said about healthcare and what is actually out there and what I would do for those who cannot be helped by what is already out there, you would not make such an ignorant statement.I know your own voice drowns out the voices of others, so I'm just not going to go to the trouble of repeating it again.

I say with all the politeness that I can muster right now. You who thinks he is so thoughtful of others Okb have no idea what people go through whose house burns down. You are selective in your so-called compassion. It is best for me to ignore your posts. I know that seems silly and I have tried, really I have, but you are a pure and unadulterated numbskull.

If you thought that was a compliment, you need to work on your compliments. That compliment would be like telling Michelle obama, "That dress looks really good on you... how much additional dress fabric is needed to cover your butt?"

Hey, he complimented a texan. Anything not laced with a LONG string of four letter words, directed at any texan Should be taken as a compliment.
Or so I've heard.
I'm from Alaska. Most folks don't know if we're americans, russian, canucks, or even Where Alaska is, so take your best shot.
Fine by me. Did you see the study that said one third of americans 'don't approve of the constitution? I think they meant The Bill Of Rights. They don't have the brain power to figure out what it actually means, and this study has been done on a regular basis since the fifties, I think.
Nice to know that the stupid line is holding steady at thirty-three percent. Bet they will all vote for barry.
Dumbasses.

You may be correct about "little" to base it on, but you are incorrect about "nothing" to substantiate it. I think it would depend on whether you took his post as an acceptance of the status quo or a call for change.
If the latter, then he clearly stated that all three branches were each individually corrupt with self-interest AND supportive of the self-interest of the other branches. If he believes that, then what is the avenue of change? Certainly not within the government with all three branches working in concert to pretect the status quo.
You're kidding, right?

No ... I guess you're not.

'Tis a pity.

You have no substantiation, as in zero substantiation, nada substantiation, zilch substantiation, zip substantiation.

If you are serious - I think you may want to work a little harder at sticking to what's in a post, not what you think might logically follow.

If you're not serious, and this is just you attempting to stir up sh*t - please, for your own sake if nothing else, stop. You're not very good at it, and you make it incredibly easy to dismiss what you say out of hand.

Also i know you need a class 3 license to buy one of these weapons
Surely the rate of fire means something, but the volume isn't the most critical factor. Its the accuracy of the rounds that counts the most....

And yes, that post was a little abrupt, but lets talk about the Affordable Healthcare Bill for what it actually does as opposed to what we are already doing.
We support healthcare for those who have nothing for those that either do not work or work and are really, really poor.

We support healthcare for those that choose to retire rather than work. We do this even if they have millions in savings and live in a mansion.

However, unless your employer provides an affordable, realistic health insurance program we basically tell more than 50% of our workforce "Screw You" if they own a home and have some savings.

So would you rather support those that contribute to this nation (the Affordable Healthcare Bill) or those that do not contribute to this nation?
Neither, Bos. The ones contributing to the nation don't need it and the ones not contributing to the nation don't deserve it.
