“Thanks for pointing that out - he murdered many people. In the end, they are now more of a capitalist country than the US. It was a waste of a war. I was in the air force in Vietnam, worked with a number of south Vietnamese - wonder if they survived when the communists took control. I don't wonder why this site is gloryifying him - the current regime probably considers him a hero, since they act just like him. If you don't agree with BO, yoo'll probably wind up in a reeducation camp, just like the south vietnamese did.”

“scattered brains, I'm sure - just think, a health care system with oversight by a corrupt IRS, offering nothing to individuals for easier access to medical treatment, since fewer doctors and more regulations will lead to a severe shortage. I think the goal of BOcare is to kill off the seniors as quickly as possible. That way, no SS liability. Since the politicians stole it , they will be off the hook to pay it back. Anything left can be used to buy democratic votes. Wow, we sure have sunk to a new low.”

“What he really means is that he wants to increase taxes on everyone who is a producer, and give it to those who embrace the socialist viewpoint. Sure there is global warming, and global cooling, but I doubt much of it is caused by man, if any. Even if it were true, the US contribution would be miniscule compared to countries like China and India. If the government were truly serious about reducing CO2, they would do it by enacting legislation that would inspire private industry to come up with creative ways of dealing with the problem, while creating jobs at the same time. All the legislation out of this administration is punitive to private industry. If the US is to survive, this must stop.”

“It's comments like yours that, unfortunately, make me realize that our republic is in deep trouble. Bush did not destroy this economy, your buddy, Barney Frank, et al, created the mess via the Communiy Reinvestment Act. Bush probably shoudn't have invaded Iraq, but he nevertheless relieved the world of a tyrant. People were ticked at him, so the democrats were voted in the mid terms in 06. The economy began to tank in 07, thanks to a congress that passed all the crazy legislation that was blamed on Bush. This is all quite obvious, but anyone who watched NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN or CBS never heard about it. BTW, as someone who worked in the private sector all my life, and had to deal with government workers part of the time. I can say that it was quite frrustrating to deal with workers that were clueless, for the most part, and lazy on top of it.”

wme98 on May 3, 2013 at 14:24:18

“To deny that the second worst recession(nearly a depression) didn't happen on Bush's watch and to lay at least most of ther blame on him is simply ridiculous. Bush's uneccessary war in Iraq has to date cost us $1.7 trillion dollars, over 4,400 brave young American lives and over 10,000 seriously wounded. The projected costs of caring for the wounded from the Iraq War is several trillion dollars over the coming years. THAT'S ON BUSH AS WELL. Then you have the prolonged Afghan War because screwed that up as well. Then you have the unfunded presription drug Bill that has added over $1.5 trillion to the debt. Then you have the Bush Tax Cuts which where implemented while we were at war. An unpredented move. Let us not forget that Bush NEVER once vetoed a spending Bill. Bush is responsible my friend. No matter how you try to rewrite history it will not change the facts.”

“Educated voters? (lol) - most of these kids are so clueless, they couldn't pass a basic test on the merits of one candidate versus another - back in the 60's, tha age was 21, and it should still remain as such. These liberal professors tell the kids whom to vote for, and never give both sides. History has proven liberalism never works - if they were educated, they would know that if someone continually takes the products of labor from another, without producing anything themselves, the system collapses. That is liberalism. Anyone who ever watched Leno's man on the street segment, or Waters World on Fox, is accutely aware of the above statement.Educated, working people ALWAYS vote republican, unless they're power hungry, greedy politicans, or just plain gullible people with too much money, such as actors and sports figures.”

If not for actions by Obama we almost certainly would have gone into a full depression. The fact that you are afraid of the youth vote is laughable.

“Nobody is talking about the real issue surrounding the second amendment - i.e., fear of tyranny. Our current administraton is systematically destroying all the characteristics that define a free society,.i.e., a republic, and replacing them with those that define a tyranical state, i.e., those that preceded us that eventually led to societal collapse. That is why there is opposition to anything that touches the second amendment, which was placed into the constitution to guard against such change. It is a slippery slope and opens the door to total disregard of our republic. Don't forget, we have an administration that thinks our country's values need to change. Well, the original values have changed via circumvention of most of our laws, and it will revert to a free, successful, society if we go back to basics.Our president is an unexperienced president who associates with domestic terrorists. If you don't think there is anything wrong with that, there is nothing more to say.”

“Oh really - why are the politicians saying SS is going broke? - (you're right, it technically can't - all the government has to do is print more money - but don't try that at home). The Post Office isn't run by the government? - if not, then who is in charge? For profit insurance companies - well, there are some bad apples, but, generally speaking, if you're insured, you're entitled to the amount for which you're insured. Medicare is another wasteful government program - I know that first hand - just like Medicaid. If Medicare is so great, why are more and more doctors refusing to treat Medicare patients? (rhetorical question- they only receive a small fraction of what the procedure would cost without insurance (every procedure has an allowable limit).”

“I read an AARP article lately that suugested Social Security is a good deal. To that I say "BS". I have personally run the numbers where a person who would have placed an amount of money into a regular savings account equal to SS contributions from 1934 to 1974 would have accumulated $750,000. if one started living off the interest payments only starting in 1975 (let's say 5%/year), that would equal $37,500/yr. Imagine what it would be if if ran from 64 untl 2003. Even with higher caps (interest rates were somewhat comparable), I would suspect the accumulation would be well in excess of $1,000,000. That would be a compensation of $50K/year without touching principal. SS should be flush with cash, instead of broke. One argues that people only work a couple years and collect for decades, but what about the people that contribute for 40 years, then die shortly after retiring. Don't isten to the politicians! demand accountability!”

“I'm not a big fan of Graham, but this is a great idea - any idea that gets rid of BOcare is a great idea. It does nothing for healthcare - everything to create a giant bureaucracy that places control of your health in the hands of the government. Even if the intentions were good (such as the post office, Amtrak, etc.), any government social program is bad news for the public. Waste and inefficiency is rampant. Dr Carson gave a great solution (at least a start to one) but it won't fly - can't buy votes and doesn't include a death panel (unlike BO care) which helps solve the Social Security problem (started in 64 by LBJ making it part of the general fund, thereby making it a piggy bank for politicians). With seniors not being able to obtain healthcare, they will die off sooner.”

“Take a look at the UK - I have friends in the UK who reside in the USA part time - they cnanot get adequate timely care over there, so they come here and pay out of pocket. Their fellow countrymen who are not so fortunate just die early. Workers getting a benefit? I think not. They will get screwed, just as they are in the UK. In a way, as a personal trainer, I may benefit. People right now in the US do not take responsibility for their own health. When they realize that medical help will not be readily available, they may decide to minimize their health risk by eating right and exercising.
This demonization of people because they are successful has got to stop - you should be angry at the politicians who get rich simply because they have the power to take from the producers. Sure, they give a little to their minions to keep them quiet, but they are the true benefactors. It is "do as I say, not as I do". e.g., social security, no privatization for the masses - that little perk is reserved for the politicans and government workers.”

“Plenty! - I'm also a fitness trainer who interacts with doctors - most agree with me. Actually, many of them are thinking of quiting practice. So, with Obamacare, you'll have few doctors, more patients. Just like a fraudulent vacaton club I was sucked into a few years ago. Go anywhere you want, they advertised. Unfortunately, there were about two openings for thousands of members. Need to reserve five years in advance. So it will be with Obamacare. Bureaucrats contribute nothing except misery. More people will die waiting for medical attention. Only the very rich will be able to afford care outside the system. The little guy is screwed.

“I worked as an independent contractor in IT supporting Medicaid. I can say with absolute certainty that it is the most abused, worthless system ever created by government. If healthcare is to be fixed in America, the first order of business is the elimination of HIPAA. It is nothing more than a bureaucratic nightmare. Also, tort reform should be high on the list - it's the reason so many doctors are running scared and malpractice insurance is excessively costly. In short, get the government and lawyers out of the way. While certainly some regulation is required to maintain scrupulous practice, Obamacare is nothing more than a government takeover of our system to ensure government power.
