“Alec is right!

All the armchair pundits never had to fill thousands of minutes a month with commentary that is "live"

Mistakes under that pressure happen - move on from the phony concern and bring Bashir back !”

Bewco on Dec 5, 2013 at 12:50:47

“Except for the fact that, even though it may have been "live", it was read from a script. Kinda negates your point.”

“But didn't Alec chastise MSNBC for firing him and not Bashir?”

“The elimination of the draft was a solution to perpetual war - we stopped the Vietnam War - hell no we wont go - and they were afraid the next war for profit would be blocked so they eliminated the protest

Only 1% of the USA is affected by the current system - there would be no war with a Draft - it is criminal what they do to these people - bring back the Draft!”

“"Ryan has suggested ideas like requiring wealthier Medicare beneficiaries to pay higher premiums and curbing the explosive growth of the military's Tricare health program"

if the republicans didn't create Wars for Profit the Military Health Program wouldn't be a problem

Medicare is not an entitlement it is about survival for all these people - Farm subsidies are an entitlement / depletion is an entitlement / congress is an entitlement

we don't need no stinkin budget...... Ryan - go and waste your time with Romney”

Eenkling on Nov 13, 2013 at 20:38:28

“What Ryan DOESN'T understand is that if the military health program and other benefits that the military provides were lowered or non existent, we would have been forced to DRAFT soldiers for Bush's failed wars. So few would've volunteered. Of course, when a country is wallowing in a homeless and jobless environment, (which this government and the banks orchestrated...), it is easier to get volunteers.”

prodemlib on Nov 13, 2013 at 20:31:40

“Tri-Care also covers families of military personnel, many of whom make ends meet with SNAP and some welfare benefits, as well as retirees. Eliminating it would put MORE people on Medicaid and Medicare. It would simply shift the costs. And since Paulie is heck bent on eliminating or privatizing Medicare/Medicaid, his move is just another one of his heartless attacks on the poor, and those who can least afford it”

“welfare and entitlements for the wealthy is what our military is ultimately protecting.

They sacrifice their health and their lives so other more fortunate "citizens" can pay politicians for gratuities and favors.

I'm sure their is something in the bible that they can use to rationalize all this.”

“And the "protectors" get paid ef'n peanuts for their service!!! The intent of the GOTP is sooooo obvious yet the media is sooooo not telling the REAL story!!!! WDF does it take to bring the truth to light?? Like I've said before..."GOODGAWDALMIGHTYDAMN"!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“look the SSI insured were promised an annuity - the congress has the power to raise the rate and the income subject to the tax anytime - infinite flexibility within these parameters - to deliver the annuity - there is no such thing as a Ponzi scheme if you control the revenue system - the fact is the Fund is solvent always has been - always will - demographics change and will revert in fifty years after the baby boom moves on - it was known in 1965 when they would turn 65 so there was never a misrepresentation - propagandists use silly words to scare low information people

focus on the war business - that is completely useless from 1947 until today - and you will find the answer to any money that is needed for anything”

“People give money with a promise of receiving more then their original investment at a future date. The money being paid back to the 1st investors comes from the cash generated by new investors and not from a growth in the assets.
That model can not continue unless there is a growth in new investors or participants.
The promise that investors will get a return on their investment is a fraud because the money contributed is not invested and it generates no return.”

“The FBI began warning of an “epidemic” of mortgage fraud in its congressional testimony in September 2004. It also reports that 80% of mortgage fraud losses come when lender personnel are involved in the fraud. (The other 20% of the fraud would have been impossible had these fraudulent lenders not suborned their underwriting systems and their internal and external controls in order to maximize their growth of bad loans.)”

is the fourth amendment violations "real context"? and if so - does it harm the US or its "citizens" to know that? do the citizens deserve the Bill of Rights or not?”
