    Now me, I'm a big supporter of education and believe that we should do whatever it takes, including additional funding, to do whatever we can do to improve our schools. I can tell by your writing that you are one with talent, and I agree that it sucks that you are tossed in with a bunch of losers. Please continue contributing on this forum, some of us want to hear what you have to say.
    If doing more of the same is so great, then how come peeka chaka no wookiee boonawa tweepie Solo? ho ho hoooo.

    I'm just wondering, but did you actually go to that website to purchase healthcare insurance? Or are you just going by what you read?

    Perhaps its inherent crappiness had something to do with one of Michelle's college friends being hired?
    Probably. Cronyism is an issue everywhere.

    There's a difference. Businesses have an incentive to be as efficient as possible. If they don't work right, they either get a easy job screwing up for the government, or they go out of business because nobody wants to buy their crappy products. With a government, there's no competition. You can be as crappy as you want, because people are just going to keep voting in the same imbeciles, failures, and scumbags. Again. And again. And again.

    I guarantee you, there is not a single ****ing business larger than one building that doesn't use a computer, let alone something the size of our government. Oh wait, that's right. There isn't a business in the world that is as big as our government. Because the government is too damn big! Corrupt businesses like the bankers responsible for our economic crisis got away with what they did because they're in bed with our politicians. Meanwhile, the US is 17 trillion dollars in debt, and nobody in Washington is doing anything about it!
    Sure they are, they are driving up that debt every day!

    You sound like a super intellegent person, you might want to actually start learning more about monetary policy, you will probably find it fascinating. Not just what tea party types believe, but also check out stuff like Keynsian economics, and MMT, and the dozens of other related issues. Ever consider majoring in economics in college?


    And as for the VA, usually, businesses with outdated software aren't responsible for veterans dying on a waiting list to get a doctor to see why they feel sick. usually, businesses with outdated software don't have the job of filing the claims of millions of men and women who put their lives on the line so you didn't have to. And usually, there's a business with up to date software around to take the position of a business that doesn't. But that's not how government works.
    So you think that an outdated computer system is why that happened? That's news to me. What a simple think to fix.

    That's what I mean. He should have just said smaller government or larger government, not smaller government or better government.

    They're mutually exclusive.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Because then the debate isn't contained to one specific idea. It'll just meander into a giant "big government bad!" poo-flinging argument. Boooorrring. Even though I see from the posts above me that's what's going to happen regardless.
