Tina ... my idea of gun control is a firm grip . Can you spin that into something ?
The Supreme 9 ruled we can have a handgun ... that's good enough for me .12 months ago
The Four Bees Cafe in BC City ... now that's a great idea ! You can rub shoulders with the ordinary people there . I've had breakfast there twice and enjoyed the ambience .
The problem is I don't drive the BC to Flag much anymore so my visits are infrequent .
Now wasn't that better than ranting about Jan or Joe ... or what could have been ?12 months ago
" If you don't pass a 1% sales tax we'll have to lay off cops and teachers ."
Whenever a politician plays that card a tax increase is guaranteed !
How nice that it fell on the backs of everyone . It's time to retire Gov with
your State Golden Parachute .12 months ago
Mr. Bennett should leave The Prez and Mr. Romney off the ballot because no matter who gets to live in the lap of luxury at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue the national debt will continue to surge and we are going to end up like Greece .
You give the blowhards inside the Beltway a dollar and they spend five . We are doomed to be a second class nation the way things are headed . You can blame it on either party and it doesn't matter because neither one wants to get the spending under control . At least Mertha is gone . He was the worst for pork ! 12 months ago
Insurance companies are in business to make a profit ! When their business is no longer profitable they will cease selling their product . The only way to get their profit margin lower is competition . When you drive by a skyscaper with a health insurance provider's name on it in large letters , you know where a large portion of the profits went and .... now it is overhead .
Unfortunately when their is no watchdog on healthcare pricing the Gmen will step in . This is not always the best practice because it just creates another government agency and more federal debt .
Correcting these price practices takes a long time because there are lots of high paid lobbyists for the healthcare industry .
The reason healthcare costs are such a hot topic is because the Gmen can't afford
to keep the promises they made any longer . Apr 18, 2012
Get a soapbox firefly ! When crime drops who gets the credit ?
Next time you need help call an illegal alien !
If you bother to watch the evening news you will notice that MOST of
the felony mugshots are NOT non hispanic naturalized citizens !
It's easy to commit felonies stateside and then cross the border and
disappear in a safe haven .
End of speech !Apr 13, 2012
I'm going with history . If you believe the " Turmoil over Obamacare " is in the same catagory as " Read my lips ... no new taxes " ( Bush Sr ), 400 US citizens captured by Iran ( Carter ), The pardoning of Nixon ( Ford ) then the current administration will be heading back to Chitown . Otherwise be ready for another 4 years of the " same ol ... same ol ". Just make sure the House & Senate have a GOP majority . That way they can veto every socialist program the administration puts forth.
Even if Sir Romney wins the " Prize " ( 1600 Penn. Ave . ) not much will change because after all he started socialized medicine in Taxachusettes. He will be too busy flying to his 14 homes on our dime and living in the lap of luxury .Apr 9, 2012
I like Tom . Levity to calm the masses .
Any major policy change always brings out the nay sayers .
The healthcare system is under the microscope now and
next it will be the dental system . How dare they make a profit
and be so good as to pull customers back from the edge of death .Apr 5, 2012
The Supreme Commander should invite all concerned parties to 1600 Penn. Ave .
Have the lackies set up a nice scene in the Rose Garden and invite all the media .
Offer a variety of kraft beers ... chat a bit ... and announce at a WH briefing that
all is OK in the USA . That's what community organizers do .Apr 5, 2012
Alfred E Newman ( ret ) ... one thing is for sure ... eventually we will have a g men run healthcare system for everyone besides 65+ citizens . It's just a question of how to pay for it . Broad based taxes will eventually be enacted because our elected officials inside the Beltway can't and won't cut spending . This Orwellian society started with FDR folowing Keynes advice . Gee ... I believe FDR was a member of the Democratic Party .
Frankly I don't see how any of the Supreme 9 could agree with forcing a citizen to purchase any thing . The responsibility for " Affordable Care " goes to the committee that drafted it not the President . This issue is right up there with gun control and we know how " The Nine " ruled on that previously .Apr 3, 2012
