    Absolutely pathetic !! I wonder what reference source states that disagreement is equivalent to hatred and racism.

    More people dislike O-care, than support it.

    How about these people, are they just 'teabagger, racists' also?
    No, the teabagger racists will be found standing under signs that clearly illustrate their problem. You don't see those Dems doing that. If there is a large number of people against Obamacare it's because of the hateful obstructionist efforts of racist pigs such as Cruz and his father too. He's one of them that still thinks Obama is a Kenyan. Are the racists and teabaggers ever embarrassed by the ugliness amongst them? Doe it embarrass you to find that you can't separate yourself from racists because the teabaggers won't?

    Just the plain truth with no frills. I think it's more effective than fancy rhetoric which you appear to be accusing me of not being capable of. I understand how it makes some people very uncomfortable when the truth isn't disguised!

    It doesn't matter if it is a failure. Once it becomes entrenched in the system it will be impossible to get rid of and we know that. That's really the entire point and one that should concern all Americans, or at least those who pay for it. It is not wise to pass legislation of this magnitude and then stand by with some curiosity to see if it works or not. Why not have legislation that is sure to work, or at least have some certainty attached rather than just Hope?

    There are a lot of complaints about companies moving elsewhere and yet the government is seeming to encourage their migration, as well as for those who tend to be more successful. The United States is a beautiful country filled with friendly and hospitable people but sooner or later those who feel they are being used will naturally look for better opportunities elsewhere. Then who pays?

    I don't know the signs that you are speaking of...

    You don't see those Dems doing that.
    "Those demos?" no. But how do you know that the signs I think you are referring to were not progressive demo's infiltrating TP rallies to make it look like there were racists among them?

    "Blogger Glenn Reynolds spotted CrashTheTeaParty.org today, a website that claims to represent "a nationwide network of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who are all sick and tired of that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes and morons; who constitute the fake grassroots movement, which calls itself 'the Tea Party.'"

    Their plan is to "infiltrate" Tea Party protests to create the false impression that protesters are racists by … being racists. That's right, they will bring with them offensive signs and give wildly offensive interviews to reporters, all with the intention of smearing a movement that wouldn't bring those signs or give those interviews themselves. It remains to be seen whether the mainstream media will take the bait.

    Mark Tapscott dubs the leftist counter-movement "Saul Alinsky on steroids" for its "by any means necessary" approach to delegitimizing its political opponents. He notes that while the group claims to employ only non-violent means, that is an old leftist canard that is often discarded once non-violent means are exhausted and whatever leftist objective is on the agenda remains unaccomplished."

    If there is a large number of people against Obamacare it's because of the hateful obstructionist efforts of racist pigs such as Cruz and his father too.
    Cruz is a Hispanic American. So you are racist against brown people eh?

    He's one of them that still thinks Obama is a Kenyan.
    Don't be silly. You don't have ONE thing to back that up.

    Are the racists and teabaggers ever embarrassed by the ugliness amongst them?
    If infiltrators are detected at TP rallies, they are asked to leave.

    Doe it embarrass you to find that you can't separate yourself from racists because the teabaggers won't?
    What you are saying here is just simply not true.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You'll never get me to cheer for any legislation that needs over 50 pages to explain itself. The outcome of Obamacare is truly unknown. Not just to me and you but to the (apparent) speed-freaks who wrote up this monstrosity.

    The only comfort is that we'll know within a year or less what the true results are. So far, not so good, but it is a bit early to pronounce it DOA.

    Not off topic at all.... just trying to show a bit of history to the evolution of programs and the highly partisan nature of this attempt to declare the ACA a failure for a week's worth of unreliable data.

    IF the same yardstick these CONs of today used for the Space Program we would be lucky to have satellites in space much less put a man on the moon.... the ONLY nation to do so.

    Funny I recall a bunch of CONs dead set against 'wasteful' scientific spending, it was CONs who claimed NASA was a Gubmint money pit.

    Gringrich was pummeled for his ambitious NASA/Moon plans by the other candidates. Willard, Santorum, and Ron Paul all called it too expensive.

    Of late the GOP controlled House has demanded increased cuts to NASA, mainly because of the Earth Science research- can't have taxpayers paying to study Global Warming. The GOP House also specifically denied money for an asteroid program. The Dem controlled senate is for funding the asteroid program.

    So I'd say you have to rely on bloggers and OP-ed rather than facts...

    Well you give ZERO fact and a lot of CONvoluted opinion... I'd say I give it far more thought than you. As far as education level, I'd opine you have little room to talk...
