    As with other things, they have issues, e.g. who takes them, who they call, and the demograhics they select.


    Link Rasmussen Reports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    You do realize you just quoted Wikipedia.

    I fail to see how that is spin. Wikipedia is a pretty good place of general information on a subject. Also, I find it funny that you criticize some one on using Wikipedia, when you started a thread using Conservapedia.

    get used to it

    Jeez, prof. Enough already. Give it a rest. We already know, 1000 times over, where you stand. Why don't you post something substantive? Let me give you an example:

    MC.No.Spin and I don't get along. In fact, he and I can't stand each other. But he has my respect as a member here. Why? Read his post against Obama's health care plan. No screeching. No weird formatting. No stale and overused talking points. He gets right to the meat of the matter, and eloquently posts why he is against Obamacare. Why can't you just do the same?

    You know, debate is not about seeing who can get a rise out of someone else. Debate is also not about the endless parroting of mindless talking points, over and over again. Neither is debate about the use of formatting because you believe that your argument will stand out if it is formatted differently. It is about taking a stand on a political point, and giving rational arguments defending your point of view, as well as rational arguments attacking your opponent's point of view. I see none of that in what you have posted so far in this thread.

    There are two ways to debate:

    1) By presenting rational arguments for and against political positions.

    2) Trolling.

    You, sir, are trolling.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    What I don't understand about the conservative position is how they propose we offer healthcare to all, both those who can afford and get (no pre-existing conditions) private insurance - group or individual, and those who cannot afford healthcare insurance - the poor, the elderly without wealth, and the sick, those with pre-existing conditions. Perhaps they think that if you cannot afford it that you just won't get it. That is heartless. Please explain.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I am not sure that he is, but if so, then I am the one who is in violation for derailing the thread, and you have my apology.

    So, after about 400 pages of this beast, I am so disgusted I don't even want to continue reading it.

    Take it easy on your blood pressure, Jall, and pray/hope/meditate that the constitutional challenges will be upheld and November kills all the bad stuff in this Alinsky legislation.
