“If you think anyone deserves anything more than a pay check at what the employer is willing to pay for the job and a good working environment your either communist or a socialist.”

“My education and my parents taught me to think for myself and question everything. I have not drunk the kool-aid of corporatism. Capitalists and most politicians are venal and self-serving hypocrites and very likely sociopaths who have no empathy. If you want to call me names like socialist or communist, I'll take it. Thank you. At the very least I know that I care for all people with my heart.”

“Giving someone something they have not earned or deserve is called socialism. Ok so I understand that now I am going to catch it from some that might attempt to say, “well at what they make they can’t afford to go to school” to that I say “BULL HOCKY”. In this country on the 50th anniversary of LBJ’s great society if you make less than $30K college in some form will not cost you one penny. At $50k student loans and grants make college affordable with minimal student loans. I worked my way through college with a wife and child, no help from any one, no loans, no grants from government, friends or family and after 14 years received my doctorate. My daughter and son-in-law are both in their 30’s have three children. My son-in-law has just received his MBA and my daughter will be receiving her bachelor’s in business in September. America is the greatest country in the world not because of what it can give you but what you can earn by our freedom. Freedom is never free.”

“Ok, I her all the hype and see all the passion but what is the reality. Lower wages doesn't create more jobs at McDonalds or any other FF place in our area because even is minimum wage were to stay the same in our area you have to be 18+ to work at these places. So keeping the low wages is not a factor for youth jobs. On the other hand, we just returned from France where the minimum wage is about 10 euros an hour or $15.60 an hour US and a Bigmac, med fries and a med Coke is 999 euros or $15.85 in US. So sure give them the $15.00 an hour they want and within 6 months to a year and the whole economy will adjust and everything will be the same. These types of entry level positions are designed for high school kids, college kids or supplemental income positions. They were never intended to be living wage positions. If you desire a living wage position with these companies then get a higher education and work your way up. Yes, the management and the executives are paid comparable to their skill level and what the management market dictates, that called free market advancement.”

“Don't know about a tird world dictatorship but it works great in Germany, France and England. Ever wonder why people from these countries want to keep dual citizenship and go back to their home country for medical service, because it is good and free. Even for tourists at least in France. When we were there several years ago I twisted my ankle and went to the hospital was seen by a doctor in less than an hour, xrays, script and wrapped out the door. When I went to pay they said there was no charges due that even tourist are covered under their health care plan.”

“Ya doesn't make any since to live together that long and call it quites. I have been married to my childhood sweety for 34 years and she says at this point that death is the only way out. Could you imagine starting all over again and dating who could be bothered. Go to your room and let her go to hers live happy. I do wonder though if its something financial. We had friends that the husband got a very bad illness and to protect the assets for her after his death they divorced. Sad to think that you have to go to that length to protect what you have worked for so your wife doesn't suffer when you are gone.”

“Hey Joel, beautiful little girl, is that your grand daughter? I know she is special to you and I say this because I have 3 that are special to me. You look about my age, 52 and my old physical condition from your picture from about a year ago when I went to the doctor with a pulled muscle in my arm that within a week turned into a heartattach and subsequent stints. Fortunatly I had insurance that covered the costs. I had taken apublic school job to get insurance because I was semi retired and could not afford to buy insurance out of poctet and after over 20 years of faithful service to one company they dropped us from the insurance. Well thepublic school job ended and I had to COBRA at $996.00 a month that went up to $1150 a month in October. I am a republican that spat snorted and cussed about Obama care and how the government had no right to dictate to me that I had to do this or that. I decided to stop listening to the propaganda and check it out for myself. Once I did and waded through all the mess I found that this is a good law and will help many in my situation and the only ones it hurts is the ones who just want to tear it down because our do nothing party didn't come up with it first or come up with something better.”

“Blah blah blah; sorry the nay sayers are all wrong and so much for all the negative propaganda being spread about the ACA. When I left my $10 an hour public school job as a certified Para professional caring for severely handicapped children with insurance that had me bringing home about $350.00 every two weeks I was forced to take the COBRA insurance at $996.00 a month because every other insurance I checked into was between $1150.00 and $1250.00 a month. My old policy was a 90/10 with no deductible and all of the new policies where either 70/30 or 80/20 with deductibles. Then I found out last week that my COBRA premiums went up in October and I was never notified and they requested another $350.00 for this month and $1200.00 a month moving forward. After wading through all the problems with the ACA website I find that the wait and dealing with the problems was well worth it. I was able to get good insurance with a reputable company at a reasonable cost. I was able to get a 90/10 with no deductible, low co pays and low max out of pocket. Basically better insurance than I had from the public school for $583.00 a month. Yes there have been a problem that is an understatement but nothing worth wild is ever easy and health care is not a privilege it is a right. Now time to reign in the mega money medical companies and hospital.”

“I know that so many states have to rattify certain lows on the federal level for them to become law. But what happens when a certain number of states legalize something? Do they have to look at changing the federal laws?”

bdgrizcp on Nov 22, 2013 at 07:32:29

“That's entirely up to Congress. They can vote to repeal part or all of existing laws or go the other route which is an amendment to the US Constitution.

The problem that comes up on the federal level is that of drug importation. Unless the feds act, it will still be illegal to import pot. Legal weed at the state level turns this into a real mess for drug interdiction, which, by the way, even if pot were completely legal in the US, all the other drugs remain illegal.”

“Japan thought that too. What they didn't factor in was American exceptionalism and our willingness to wipe you out and then rebuild you when we are done. I have heard some say that this is not the same America it was in WWII era, but I beg to differ and I think the major powers of the world know that we will smack you down with all we have if you try us. As far as terrerist they are flies on the butt of the donky and until we say no quarter they will not go away. Rebuilding Iraq and Afganistan is a failure and Iran is a joke.

“You know who was realty stupid?

Those people really crack me up because they wind up whining about what they did when it was all their own choice. Especially when they ran out to buy that "new" model because it had some "feature" that they thought they could not live without and would be toooooooo cool to have.”
