    so because it's a tough issue we shouldn't tackle it? what's going on now was going on 1 year ago....and obama is trying to deal with all the issues. he inherited a huge mess, to put it mildly.

    Why is it only a problem when the Conservative points of view are "protesting" in townhalls?

    But the 8 years of Bush saw some of the most loud, vicious, mean spirited, dishonest and downright hateful protests in years was... Democracy in action?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Clearly, Single Payer is absolutely the wrong way to go.

    Clearly, lawyers should be a nationalized industry with no tolerance for private professional practitioners.

    Clearly, your Messiah isn't going to fix anything, cuz he's a lawyer, a socialist, and not too damn honest.

    do you really believe the 70 year old woman protesting against this bill has READ it? lmao.......
    WTF are YOU complaining about?

    Oh, let's see if we can get this straight....you're complaining that a woman who hasn't read the bill and doesn't want it passed is standing in the way of the president who hasn't read the bill and wants it passed.

    Oh, you have too strong an argument on your side, we better stand well back away from you.

    liblady, the whole premise of your thread here is the assumption that "we" should "do" anything about it all. As long it doesn't turn violent, there's nothing to be "done." That's the whole idea behind freedom of speech.

    You do cherish freedom of speech, don't you?

    i find your logic is flawed here.....why would you nationalize lawyers? isn't that a bit socialistic?

    What the bill means is that I'll lose twenty percent of my annual wages, lose my private health care, and have to deal with nice friendly people like those at the DMV to get an ingrown toenail dug out, after waiting behind a herd of illegals.

    Yeah yeah yeah, you all SAY "that ain't gonna happen", but then you all ignore the bill of goods used to sell the Sixteenth Amendment, when "only the rich" would pay "just 2% taxes"....hahahaha....or the snow job used to sell Socialist Security, where people initially only paid a small percentage of their wages, a percentage that's increased to 15.4% today, and rising....or the scam that sold Medicaire, which was originally going to cost no more than 10 billion...total.

    How's 'bout if you people stop pretending we share your ignorance? How's 'bout you people begin to understand that not only do major government programs NEVER die, they GROW? How's 'bout you people stop selling my freedom to demonstrate your deluded trust in snake-oil salesmen and start learning how to be men. Couldn't you at least begin standing erect?
