    funny thing is that we get a lot of talk from Republicans but we tend to get the increase in services from the Democrats - funny isn't it when the Republican talk a lot about "supporting the troops". sure !!!

    The Democrats must like hese Government Socialist Insurance Plans such as TriCare and Medicare I guess !!!
    Champus? I'm sorry to hear our government has not provided you with the best of the best. No doubt our social programs could use some improvements. Thank you for your service, by the way.

    Some people's definition of "supporting our troops" means giving them something important to do, like go fight in a war. It also means providing them with the best we have to offer in defensive technology. Thus, feeding the defense industry, thus bolstering the economy (as well as making politicians rich,) thus creating the need for armed conflict, thus allowing or even creating the armed conflict, to then send our young men and women out to fight it. Rinse and repeat.

    I guess that's ONE way to support our troops.

    Others have a different perspective. They feel supporting our troops means taking every measure to keep them alive and, if at all possible, keeping out of harms way to begin with and then take care of them after their service. The latter, everyone should agree on.

    Is it me or has anyone noticed a relative calm about the new stuff out of Washington since the new opinion polls are starting to relect the populous majority now approves of the health care reform?

    When the numbers were tilting against it, we couldn't hardly turn anywhere with running across a frothing, angry person shouting "Americans Don't Want It!"

    Well, now they do.

    Tomorrow, may be a different story. Who knows?

    Let's talk about polls and selective beliefs, regardless.

    With over 70% of the US population thinking that the Iraqi war was a collossal mistake, would those same angry Becksters agree with the masses, that the Iraqi was an error? As they expected us to do, when the polls were leaning against health care reform? I think not. So is it any surprise the other side didn't give much weight to the position that 50+% of the masses were against "Obamacare" so it must be a bad thing?

    How's that go? "He who laughs last......" But I digress.

    Poll's only mean anything when they validate one's position. When they don't, and they go against one's beliefs, as usual, the whole marching band is out of step but Johnny.

    I see everybody doing it. No one has the moral highground on selective beliefs. Perception is reality.

    The Senate is going to pass this as well. It was never in question. It was just some people being overly dramatic.
    I don't know where you get that fuzzy math FF but for your info 435-0 is unanimous......

    It was already a done deal. The unanimous vote should tell you that.

    Really, so tell me did you serve on the front line?

    Did you get drafted?
    Did you draw a paycheck and benefits?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
