“Senselessbrains was the architect of the Patriot Act which opened the door to all kinds of illegal snooping and spying and he was okay with the government doing all that since it was all under W. He's just as guilty as Clapper for lying to the country as to the real intent of the Patriot Act.”

“No...he helped write a bill that this administration has construed to mean whatever they want it to mean. It is in the interpretation of the original bill that we as a nation have become beholden to our gov't and not the other way around...so maybe it is time to retire the patriot act and rewrite it...simply, concisely, and without any wiggleroom for interpretation from future administrations. The 'internet' and 'technology' has increased so much from 2003 when the patriot was enacted...so it is time to rewrite it to account for our advances.”
“When Boehner says
"The House has continued to listen to the American people and to focus on their concerns, Whether it's the economy, whether it's jobs, whether it's protecting the American people from Obamacare -- we've done our work."
What he really means is " The house has kissed the feet and wiped the butts of the baggers to do their demands to destroy the economy, deny Americans a living wage and decent jobs and to produce lie after lie about healthcare--- we’ve screwed the country.””
“The insurance companies have known about the individual health policy changes since 2010 and they never sent any kind of notice to any policyholder until they sent the letters last month aying the policy doesn't conform to the new coverage guidelines. The insurance companies lied and lied and covered the change up until the last minute. And all the while they kept on selling outdated and overpriced policies to the public pulling in the billions in premiums and denying coverage when it was needed.”

“Now they are selling UPDATED overpriced policies!”

“Right. So it's the insurance company's faults for complying the new ACA standards, but not telling anyone they were going to have to cancel their plans until now.
Here's another thought. The WH also knew back in 2010 that the law they were trying to sell was going to cause millions upon millions of plans to no longer be compliant. Why didn't THEY say something when they were selling it? Or at least qualify their main selling point with something like "some people will get to keep their plan if it doesn't change at all from the time of the law's passing, to it's implementation."”

“I reject the premise of your argument that the policies are "outdated and overpriced."
People liked thier policies and wanted to keep them. And Obama lied in order to ram through an unpopular bill nobody read.”
“what's USA going to show in place, not more NCIS and Law & Order, how many military personnel can a show get rid of? how many times can some be called 'probie'? Totally sickening. Law & orderr is reruns of reruns of reruns and boring, boring, boring.”
“What's with the air and water and soil in Canada, they must be breeding grounds for something that affects the brain and stiffles common sense. Just look at the export they sent us named Cruz and the mapleleaf bagger they have in Toronto. Both poured out of the same moldy and infested teacup.”

“Canada is a big place. I'll limit myself to Toronto, Rub Ford's home base.
You are so right. The air that constantly blows into Toronto is not good. It blows over from the pestilential regions of Illinois and the US West and midWest.
Same for the water. Torontonians get their drinking water from the cesspool known as Lake Ontario, which is a receptacle for all the poisons and wastes that are dumped into Lake Michigan and Lake Erie by - you guessed it - American free-market, FoxGnus supported industry and mega agra-business.
Of course, this makes Torontonians crazy. Just think of all that poisonous sludge from the Love Canal in New York State, just oozing its way towards Toronto for the last decades. That starts to explain what's wrong with Rob Ford and with all those people who voted him into office. They are born pixillated.
As for the soil, it's all wannabe perma-frost stuff, i.e. shovel-wrecking pre-concrete clay that is nostalgic for primordial times when there were no suburbs around the colonial outpost known as Toronto, or "Muddy York" as they called it. Even then, back in 1812, the Yanks came up to go fishing and then left their calling-card by burning down the whole frigging place. Some tourists. Canadians don't get no respect. It's enough to drive them crazy - outside of expectorating Cruz, of course. Once in a while Candians get sane, eh?”

“C&W music-- if that's what it is-- is worshipped primarily by the people in the south. It appeals to people who have little education, promotes little or no morals, it's simple, it has one theme, all of the performers look alike and dress the same, guys with omnipresent beatup hat, girls with the flashy/skimpy dresses and speech that sounds like it was taught out in the hollows. Baggers love it: it's so simple because they don't have to think about it.”
“We needed some kind of study to confirm this? The guns and racist combination tie have been proven over and over again for the last 10-15 years, probably longer.”

“It has never been proven,only by fakes and frauds of the gun control movement.”

“Lots of folks from all races and backgrounds use firearms to protect themselves and family from harm. Certainly there are racists who own guns and certainly there are criminals who own guns. But at the end of the day the majority are people who just want to be able to protect themselves and their family.”

“Who has "proven" that?
The same people who think guns are a sign of inadequacy issues?”

“Now what ?? First the baggers demanded that the ACA be defunded. After the website launch had numerous problems with people accessing it for applying and getting information, the baggers demanded to know why the website was having so many problems and held committee hearings on it. Then they demanded that they be given confidential briefings to keep them updated on what was being done to fix the problems, the baggers don't show for it. The next time the baggers ask for info, the administration should tell them where to go.”

“If anyone thinks that the next round of talks on the next CR to keep the government open and the CR to raise the debt limit are going to be easy, forget it. These baggers are going to come back madder than hell and really do some destruction to this country and to the economy.The 2014 eletions is the time to wipe these baggers off the political map.”

“The backbiting and the backstabbing on the extreme right has begun. If you aren't willing to shut down the government and refuse to delay the debt ceiling increase and demand that healthcare be denied to millions of poeple, and deny food and education to the millions who need it, then you don't have what it takes to be a bagger. Any sign of compassion or compromise at the smallest degree is enough to call for one head.”
“Credit reporting agencies like S&P, FITCH, etc., now estimate that the government shutdown will slow down the economic growth- GDP- for the rest of this year and into next year from 3% to 2%, that's 1/3 of productivity lost, job losses not yet estimated.”
