“Hey...I'm sorry you're having such a bad day. Are you always this glum? I prefer games that are played in good visibility...sorry that is so offensive to you.”

“Preferring good visibility is not at all offensive to me, what is annoying is that for some reason you don't think that was a good game, assume that no one could see the game, and no one enjoyed it. And think the lucky team won. I disproved all of your points, and I was at the game. You have no leverage here, I was just informing you that you are totally wrong on all points.
As for my bad day, how could I have a bad day when I watched the Eagles win yesterday and I am watching Dallas get smoked right now?
What is offensive to me is people who have no clue what is going on making believe they are some kind of authority on what is good football for everyone else.
Do we need to continue or are you ready to admit that nothing you have said on this thread is correct?”
“I'm glad. But the article said that the players weren't visible...so how could you see it? Or know what was happening? Did you just use your imagination?”

“So the announcers you were listening to, were they doing any play by play? They were because it was visible. Not clear as a sunny day, but visible. Do you think the video's of the game you may have seen on this story or maybe ESPN were just some manifestation of someone's imagination? Did you watch the game? Or do you just listen and believe everything the announcers say even though you can see the play on TV? Think for yourself.”
“Government never seeks to diminish its power and influence, but always seeks to expand it. This administration fully demonstrates this fact.”

“So what are you saying? that you want a weak government because you are weak?”

“And they team with the rich and powerful corporations to extract resources from the rest of us. Its really the big and powerful (business and government) against the rest of us. Examples: big ag, big corporate farmers, the ethanol industry gets all manner of subsidies from the taxpayers; big pharma, HMOs, insurance companies, and big hospital chains get taxpayer subsidies from O-care, while the rest of us get web sites that do not work and unaffordable rates.”

“Indeed, with corporations running the government any expansion of corporate power is also an expansion of "government".”
“So true. I wonder how much of our support for our nation then was because Americans of that generation were so much more grateful, so much more patriotic, so much more selfless, and just so much better persons than we Americans of today are.”
“And we continued to suffer defeat after defeat as the battles raged on for months. It was not a time in this country for the faint-hearted or the pacifists. But Americans turned the tide through their sheer resolve and "won through to absolute victory".
God Bless that generation and God Bless America.”

“Really!? I'm in the middle class and the only threat to my wealth is the government. Every time I look it is levying new or higher taxes on me.”

“That's because Congress thinks you should pay more so Mittens doesn't have to.”

“Aside from the fact that personel taxes are at their lowest since the 1950"s when I was growing up, it was excepted that with ones success came responsiblity to the country that make your success possible and that those who had more gave more. As Kennedy told us, "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" It is a shame that today people feel it is the other way around, until they need help.”
“"The result could be an untold number of consumers remaining uninsured despite completing the enrollment process -- another embarrassing chapter in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, Obama's signature health care reform law."
The actual embarrassment will happen when the system works just fine when informing the IRA of citizens who are to be fined for not having obtained health insurance. That part will go very smoothly.”
“How many of those 29,000 people had been trying to sign up throughout October but could not? Of course there is going to be an increase every time the site reopens after experiencing periods of inoperability. In fact, if I were interested in creating these "surges", I would shut the site down periodically and then claim success after reopening it and seeing the predictable processing of those who had been waiting.”
“"the dream of upward economic mobility is breaking down".
Journalistic nonsense. Upward economic mobility has never been, nor intended to be, a dream. It is a goal for those who aspire to it and are willing to work for it. Two people go to work for the same company with the same qualifications. One goes to work for an income, the other goes to work for the company. In ten years the latter will be way ahead of the former. I've seen it happen time and again for the last fifty years.
If a person is willing to continuously increase the value of the output they produce for their employer, they will move up. But if they wait for seniority to elevate their boat, they will be disappointed.”
“Like Obamacare, this action is supposed to look good...not necessarily accomplish anything.”

“says the trashbagger who cheered the wasting of 24billion on a fools errand shutdown and 64 million on wasted votes for repealing the ACA, go figure. Your kind admitted it was for petulance and hate of the President and had no redeeming qualities with your actions”
