    I don't blame her. I wouldn't buy health care either, especially based on the price which government loves to jack up via regulations. Your anecdote is an unfortunate one, but I don't think I will slip and fall and break my spine either. It is an improbable situation which is likely to never happen.

    Again, Ron Paul is right. There is something fundamentally wrong when people purchase health care insurance for everyday accidents rather than to insure against catastrophes. The market system is not working and I "wonder why".

    Hundreds of Thousands of dollars?

    Something tells me she would still be in a **** ton of medical debt WITH insurance. Who pays out like that ?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I find difficult to believe that you are genuinely this confused.

    Go back and listen to that audio and it is very very clear that many people respond to the question of should we just let him die? Many people far more than just two.

    You know I am not confused just as I l know you do not have a hearing problem. You have chosen to BELIEVE what you want to BELIEVE because you want to BELIEVE it.

    For you or anyone here to insist that this was two people is absurd and a blatant denial of the actual audio available. But even this farce serves to prove a point. That point being that the armies of the far right not only feel they are entitled to their own opinions but their own facts and reality as well.

    And that tells you what is wrong with America today.

    "Armies of the far right"?

    And my reality isn't the real "reality"? Oh, okay.

    The premise of the opening post is, "This is an indication how radical and far right the Tea Party is." It's a bogus premise based on a hasty generalization.

    I'd say that any 1:05 clip of one evening in one place with X number of people in the audience isn't representative of much of anything. I guess I'm not a global thinker who's able to extract an indictment of an entire political movement from 65 seconds.

    The video clip in the OP has been removed, so here it is from YouTube for anybody who wants to listen:

    No, you're just looking for any excuse to ignore the obvious beliefs of the rightwingers. This is not the first time the rightwingers have epxressed the opinion that sick people without insurance should just die.

    Actually it is rather accurate and incisive. The tape is evidence of that.

    On the subject of taxes:
    Jesus didn't live during the bronze age, the bronze age was prehistoric. Jesus lived during Classical antiquity.

    He didn't say that Jesus lived during the Bronze Age. Can't you ever understand a point when it's made figuratively or are you always so literal?

    Sangha, you have nothing of value to contribute to this discussion, so please cease any attempt at doing so. You are dismissed with extreme prejudice.
