    No no. That's not the way it works. You see, throwing tantrums in public, rallying behind corporations that give a **** about people and care more for their bottom line, and supporting lies disseminated by said corporations in order to help them gain more of a profit is a virtue to the right. To fight back against these things is completely and totally evil.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Unions are the new SA.

    Well if you're a realist as your name implies, then you know we're already paying out the nose for others HC. That $50 band-aid you paid for in the hospital goes to cover the poor that only have the emergency room as their HC provider.

    It seems to me that the fiscally responsible thing to do (along with being pro-life), would be to clean up the waste, fraud, and abuses that leave all too many people without coverage and which rising costs are on a path to put us all in the poorhouse.

    But you see you have missed it their it isn't the average Joe who is Voicing their opinion it's the Union Leadership who is buying the add and attacking those of us who are against Mr. Obama health Night mare. I'm guessing that allot of actual card caring Union Folks are against this if you went and talk to them. It's funny when I went to the DC Tea Party Rally I meet quite a few Union Folks who were very upset with Congress.

    That comes after the initial plan depriving all the real Americans their private coverage is complete. Then comes the second step of absorbing the goonion plans.

    Divide and conquer and then eat your own, that's the socialist way.

    No, that looked like a reasonable statement.

    Perhaps you should study the applications of controlled mob violence in the death of republics more closely. Start with Julius Ceasar and work on up to your Messiah.

    The fiscally responsible thing to do would be to make people pay for their own care and coverage.

    Works for me just fine.
