    You have been wrong about many things. Your wrong here as well. The patient can't make wise decisions without information.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    How would you rank the good, if not great and accomplished, doctor as compared to other Black talking political heads...say compared to Jesse "extortion" Jackson, or Al "not too" Sharpton, or Eric "the bag" Holder, or Barry "the community disorganizer" Obama?

    I mean, if Barry had limited himself to community organizing, if the two reverends had limited themselves to preaching what they don't practice, or if the AG had just stuck to just defending terrorists, would they, too, come across as more credible as well?

    Btw, I would get taxed if I were to leave. I guess I earn too much to practice freedom of movement. :/



    If that's all that stops you from hitting the road, then you don't want to get out that bad.

    I have no sympathy for you.

    They didn't put up much of a fight. Care to explain that?
    Because it's not central to the bill and the right-wing media circlejerk was using it to convince gullible people that there actually were death panels.

    You used a regime approved op-ed and you don't understand why that didn't support your argument?!?

    Allow me to be more specific: using the text of Section 1233--the death panel section--show us how it's such an important part of the bill and how it's removal harmed people.

    Can you prove that section 1233 didn't implement death panels? That should be easy, using the text of the bill. Yes?

    You can't do it, either, but I have to ask.

    Medicine is a service provided by people that have the right to decide on how they will offer it. The government should not be ordering people around that did nothing wrong.

    I have looked into it and according to my finding I will be taxed about $200 grand if I decide to leave. :/

    Listened to the speech but never heard anything of Hope and Change! Is he not using the traditional 'Politics For Dummies' handbook?
