    Nice. Access to testing and healthcare is "extravagance".

    Americans also have lower cancer mortality rates than Canadians, better access to preventative care than Canadians, spend less time waiting to see a specialist than Canadians, and are more satisfied with the care they receive than Canadians. At what point does this become extravagance?

That's the extreme case of course, the corollary is don't force me to wear red on Tuesdays or don't force me to buy health insurance at the point of a gun. You know positive rights as opposed to taking something like life or liberty (ie. kidnapping or murder) which is what a government is supposed to be doing, protecting your life and liberty from others who want to take it.

    I know, I know... "Nobody is pointing a gun at you to buy insurance!" but that is the eventuality. if you don't buy then you have to pay if you don't pay you can be imprisoned, the guys who come to put you in prison bring guns...

    Who said anything about denying healthcare? Go get some. Walk right in and pony up your hard earned dollars and you have access to the best healthcare in the world. Who is stopping you?

    I want to know why you would deny me a new Ferrari? I demand it!

    Is that all you allowed yourself to see? Really?

    As someone who is sharing the high cost of healthcare (as are all of us), it might be wise to consider how many MRI machines are really needed in a given area. How many MRIs are done in the Pittsburgh area? Enough that there's always a line? Or, do many go sitting idle?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    They are just proving the point. The government will bring us long unbearable lines for everything MRI's is a good example, be sure to schedule that next head injury, because your MRI spot by that math is 6 years, 2 days and 40 minutes from now.

    Allowed myself to see? I've spent 7 years with Tricare now. Unless all your ailments can be magically cured by Motrin, government medicine sucks.

    There should be as many as is necessary to fill demand at the price people are willing to pay. Command and Control economies - as you are suggesting we engage in - rarely have beneficial results for those unfortunate enough to live under them.

    Like I said, I used it because it was an apt fit.

    Dance, dance, dance.

    You held out that they were two different things. As shown, they are not.
    You purposely used derogatory slang and then denied it meant what it did.



    Dance, dance, dance.

    Wrong numb nuts. It's Aints free.

    What a bunch of whining sore losers Republicans have turned out to be. Never learning their lesson and still blaming other people for their miserable defeat on November 6th, 2012. I created an OP long before the election that told you Romney, was going to lose and that Obama, was going to win bigger than what Republicans were lead to believe by the fictional story telling blow-hards at Phoocks Snoooze and Right Wing extremists like Rush Limbaugh - all of which made the conscious decision to stick their heads in the sand and pretend as if they actually had the right candidate with the right message, standing on the right policies - none of which were true.

    Now, you and Mitt Romney, come up with vein and empty headed excuses for why you lost - including the bizarre assessment that a majority of the country was bought-off and bribed to the polls. What a bunch of lame ducks. You put forth the worst Manchurian Candidate since the Movie's original release who runs around the country attempting to lie his way into the White House, and then you have the temerity to actually be surprised at the fact that he got is rear-end handed to him on election day? Wake Up! This is PRECISELY why the Republican Party is fast approaching the land of irrelevant and moot. You've already lost the White House through 2024. Keep it up and you will begin to lose the Senate through 2028!

    Now, who the heck is James Nye? When you post a link to the source of your woefully sad stab at the election results, you should know something about that source, should you not. James Nye, is not a Professional Journalist - not even close. Furthermore, he quotes some guy living in Florida, and who operates a chain of restaurants, to include a few Denny's. Any self respecting "Journalist" would at least get the picture of the restaurant correct.

    article-2233221-16096611000005DC-609_634x381.jpg

    This is not a Denny's restaurant in Florida, where this clown lives:




    The restaurant above is located in Emeryville, California:




    The building in the background to the left/center is now shown in the picture used by James Nye. However, it used to be the Corporate Offices of Siebel Systems, and Enterprise Software Technology company that was eventually acquired by the company used to work for, Oracle Corporation. The white building to the extreme right of the picture I posted, is the home of Wells Fargo Bank of Emeryville, California. The parking lot to the right in the picture that I posted, is the parking lot that I have used on many occasions at 5:00am in the morning, in my way to the airport on extended business.

    If Mr. John Metz, were not such a darn cheapskate, he would either pay his employees a realistic livable wage so they can purchase their own darn insurance, or he get his lazy fat butt up off the sofa long enough to call Kaiser Permanente, so he could look into one of several Small Business Affordable Insurance plans that they have for clients just like himself. The facts do matter.

    If he loses enough business after pulling a dumb stunt like raising the prices on Denny's receipts by 5%, then his bottom line will begin to expose his stupidity and his customers will expose his lack of common sense.

    You lost the Presidential election of 2012 Republicans. It is time to get over it. Slamming the door on your own fingers with idiotic gestures and foolish protests, won't re-do the damage you've done to your party by nominating the Emperor With No Clothes as your Presidential Candidate without a clue. You guys have a tremendous amount of serious soul searching to get done and delaying that process with silly gestures like this will only extend your pain.

    Heal thyself and thy party, by joining the rest of Middle America - guess where - in the Middle of America, that's where.
