Democrats Plotting and Scheming to Save Obamacare

820

Senate Republicans are determined to pass their version of a new healthcare bill by July 4th, and Democrats are preparing various ways to make sure that doesn’t happen. According to a new report from Politico and Fox News, Chuck Schumer’s minions are plotting to stall the GOP through public statements, filibusters, and any other means necessary. Included in that is the narrative that Republicans are proceeding with the bill in a secretive, closed-door fashion that prevents the public from knowing what’s going into the law before it comes up for a vote.

That narrative was used against Democrats in 2009, when the original healthcare bill – the monster that ultimately came to be known as Obamacare – was being deliberated. But now Democrats are telling the press that while the accusations against them were untrue, they really do have a case against Republicans.

“Doing this behind closed doors is actually not what we did,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn).

No, of course not. That would mean the Democratic Party did something undemocratic and wrong, and we all know that Democrats are right on every issue, every dot and tittle of political policy, and every ethical/moral issue in Washington. So it goes without saying that Obamacare was a beautiful, life-saving law and that it was passed in the finest traditions of democratic legislation. Who would possibly argue otherwise, except those damn, dirty Republicans and their damn, dirty tricks, right? Right.

Of course, the Democrats won’t really be a part of this process at all. At least, not if Mitch McConnell has anything to say about it. The Senate is going to try and pass the bill using a budget reconciliation process that will allow them to put the legislation through with a simple majority vote. That will require them to get nearly every single Republican on board, but it won’t require them to reach across the aisle. And that’s a good thing, because the Democrats have no interest in cooperating, regardless of what’s in the bill.

In fact, they are planning to use every trick in the book to push the Republicans off track. From Fox News:

How far Senate Democrats will go to slow the chamber’s day-to-day business, particularly hearings, remains unclear. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other members of his leadership team have declined to talk to Fox News about such plans.

However, Fox has confirmed that they intend to at least slow the process with extended speeches on the chamber floor, as first reported by Politico.

The pressure is on Republicans to repeal or at least fix ObamaCare.

One thing is certain: The GOP faces certain political disaster if they can’t make this happen. And even if they do, many of them are going to leave themselves wide open for primary attacks, because whatever bill they pass, it will certainly not be the kind of total repeal-and-replace of Obamacare that nearly every one of them promised the voters. Republicans have gotten themselves into a hell of a jam with this healthcare debacle, and it’s going to take some serious guts and creativity to get themselves out of it.

    The more the left whines, the easier it is to ignore them.

    1. LANE says

      My opinion is that you are wrong. The left wines way more, and get more air time and people are believing the left more…The media has successfully already convinced and twisted the truth to the left advantage. You have to understand that government has all the statistics and they know that most people don’t watch the news enough, forget and can get brainwashed. The left is more organized then the right. You have liberal people on welfare that have time to protest why most workers, and republicans don’t.

      1. 1555 says

        It is because vast majority of the media is LEFT owned. That is why get all their extra
        ‘whining’ airtime, about ideas that lack mostly all traces of common sense.
        We need many more of conservative media outlets. Where did they all go ?

        1. MAHB001 says

          “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
          —-Lenin

          That really is all the left is doing, repeating lies.

          1. Mathew Molk says

            Lenin is dead and this country is not filled with ignorant peasants. The royal exalted boma and the cackling witch sealed the fate of the NWO Marxists

            Only lefties are believing their lies and their ranks are shrinking.

            MAGA Love it or leave it.

          2. MAHB001 says

            So true, it seems Capitalism is back on track, for now.

            But I will warn you, after being bit by a rabid dog, one is not safe just because the dog dies….. 🙂

        2. Michael Dennewitz says

          geo soros OWNS ALLof the media outlets!! ?☹?

          1. Mathew Molk says

            And we are boycotting them…- Like Bobby Bare said,,,That makes us THE WINNER!

            MAGA! Love it or get out.

      2. MAHB001 says

        You make good points. I should not have used the word ignore. I should have used the word Fight… We have been ignoring their whining too long.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          Mind over matter. We don’t mind because they no longer matter

      3. Mathew Molk says

        Is that why we are 5 for 5 in the run off elections?

        The more they protest and riot worse they look and the stronger we get.

    2. cp123 says

      How true. Was dem, now independent.

      1. Norman says

        THANK YOU. I WAS TOO.

        1. MAHB001 says

          Welcome to the fight!

          1. Mathew Molk says

            Ditto that. There is a difference between a Marxist and the loyal opposition. Our side is not allays right. We need others to “keep us honest” and I welcome logical opposing views. Together we WILL make America great again.

            Again. Welcome to the fight. – We need all the help we can get. It’s going to be a long war.

      2. MAHB001 says

        Welcome!

        Elite Democrats = Elite Republicans = Elite MEDIA

        Big Government = Communism

        The Elites have fundamentally transformed our country from Of the People, By the People, and For the People, to: Of the Elites, By the Elites, and For the Control of the People by the Elites… This is Communism.

        I can’t believe the serfs (me included) in either the Democrat or Republican party want to be ruled by a communist state.

        There are still people within our Government that are still working FOR the people, but we must root out all the wolves in sheep’s clothing.FROM BOTH PARTIES.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          I’d say better get the RINOs first. They are mor dangerous the Blow-See and her entire corrupt gang. — If we got rid of the RINOs these NWO Marxist elites will become powerless.

          1. MAHB001 says

            We must attack on all fronts. Schools, Churches, MEDIA, Both Political parties, Unions, Big Businesses, Courts.

            We must attack them like we do when killing snakes. Because we are.

    3. Aware says

      Hard to ignore them bc they make a lot of noise and have a tendency for violence.

      1. MAHB001 says

        You are correct, I have edited my comment above. It is totally wrong to ignore these people.

  2. MAHB001 says

    It is time for ALL Americans to realize that a Politician promising free ice cream is just lying.

    A politician promising free healthcare is lying, but his true intent is communism. Connect the dots.

    ‘Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the Socialized State.’
    —–Lenin
    “The goal of socialism is communism.”
    —–Lenin

    And finally:

    A politician promising that a tax is going to fix climate change is lying.

    And his true intent is communism.

    1. LANE says

      There was a book that came out by two Harvard Professor many years ago that talked about the first step in making a country to go socialism is to break the country financially. This sounds familiar to me with Democratic party. The way I see it, the left are breaking the country by welfare and food stamps, plus Healthcare. It seems like the Democratic party is better organized and more dangerous. I used to tell people that MOVEON.ORG was spreading and instigating news back in 2007-2008 and people seem unaware, but thanks to social media and Trump fighting back, more people seemed to be more aware. I was in Military School in the early 70’s and remember my ROC instructor telling me that america can easily win the Vietnam war hands down because america and allies knew where all the supplies came into North Korea that was being supplied by Russia and China, but America and Allies would not bomb the ports,because of politics and the left and all the flower child protesters, forced america to retreat from the war and the Veterans were severely humiliated when they came back. How come no one is pointing out how many left media personal had spouses working in Obama administration? It is like the Khan guy confrontation with Trump. Mr Khan is a Immigration attorney that had a website taken down after Trump confrontation. Or how about GOOGLE Edward Mezvinsky. Maybe Trump needs to hire more pro conservative spouses that work for Right media to counter balance the left implants, and so republicans can counter the very, very, very bad, manipulated left press…That is how I see it. Anyone agree?

      1. 1555 says

        I agree. But at this moment the conservative spouses would have be able to penetrate
        the lying media circles. So it makes even more sense to have MORE CONSERVATIVE
        MEDIA.

        1. MAHB001 says

          The MEDIA should not be Conservative OR Liberal, it should be above both parties and keeping both parties honest.

          The fact is that the left corrupted MOST of the MEDIA and now We the People tend to think that we need our own version of the fact.

          What we need is an HONEST MEDIA.

            We are not going to be able to change the NYT, WAPO, CNN, NBC, MSNBC. ABC and CBS without changes in ownership of those entities. They are mainly owned by wealthy dilitantes with no knowledge of, not interest in, journalism as it should be. They are not the fourth estate perceived by the founders, they have become paid propagandists for the dimm-socialist party.

          3. MAHB001 says

            You may be correct. BUT what we can do is make Soros and the left PAY for their own propaganda.

            Every time you purchase at Ancestry,com a small chunk of YOUR money goes into advertising, and when Ancestry spends their money on ABC, NBC and CBS, they are in turn spending YOUR money to support the lefts propaganda.

            WE CAN STOP THAT PROCESS, and when we do, the news will change, or close or even better yet, make Soros die a broke man.

            Don’t support companies who are catering and supporting the politically correct bigots, don’t buy biased newspapers , even on-line. Don’t watch networks that are pushing views you don’t like , don’t go to or buy at full price any movie with so-called stars who hate you and your choice of president or representative , Let them pay for their views and their holier than thou attitudes.Don’t buy clothes from Patagonia who say they want to be a leader of ” The Resistance “. Don’t buy music from so-called artists who insult you and your beliefs . Do not contribute to charities that do not contribute to charities you support and last but not least stand up for your beliefs and don’t let anyone tell you that you voted wrong.

          8. Greg Hernandez says

            The media was given special rights under the Constitution to be a non-partisan voice so people could hear BOTH sides of an issue and then make up their own minds. Today we have the lame stream media as the voice of the Demorat party and even more biased than the politicians.

          9. MAHB001 says

            It is hard for me to believe that the MEDIA gave up their right to free speech in order to promote a liberal progressive socialist agenda, but then again, ALL socialist/communist regime control the MEDIA.

          10. Greg Hernandez says

            Yes they do control them and both the German and the Russian press allowed them to. They got suckered in and as soon as the Nazi’s and the reds took power they imprisoned and or killed everyone who disagreed with them and the survivors got in line and did what they are told . For our press it is ALMOST like the 20’s in Russia and 1933 in Germany. They have a choice. Do it right or turn themselves into puppets with no real voice.
            If it wasn’t for talk radio and FOX news we would be in the same boat and America would be in the sewer.

          11. MAHB001 says

            And the Left will say “That will not happen here” As is happens here.

            Have you seen this video? It explains what has happened to the left.

        See Cloward and Piven.

          And Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” which Democrats follow faithfully,

          1. David in MA says

            See the Communist Manifesto and the UN Agenda 21.

          2. Wes Tipton says

            True Rita. Both Obuma and the Hildebeast adore Alinsky by their own admission. Yet people voted him to office, and almost got her back in. To be surrounded with folks that ignorant really concerns me.

      3. Retired says

        You left out Corporate welfare which is just as high and if not more than people welfare .

        1. Francisco Machado says

          A good point. Take note:

          & Solar Companies: Losses in the Billions for Taxpayers. None Succeeded.
          http://www.dividedstates.com/list-of-failed-obama-green-energy-solar-companies/
          Billions of taxpayer dollars thrown away as “welfare” for these companies that were completely unneeded, money that could have been left in the private sector to increase commerce, increase product demand and raise the standard of living of the productive segment.

        2. MAHB001 says

          What exactly is Corporate welfare?

          1. John D says

            Giving money to Corps based on their political leanings

          2. MAHB001 says

            In other words, Big Business colluding with Government officials with the intent of the politicians selling off public assets to securing a better deal for big business in trade for more power and money to the politician.

            That is Communism.

          3. Marialice Barone says

            Or Fascism

          4. Sol_of_Texas says

            It’s a fine line (communism [internationalists] vs. fascism [nationalists]). The point is that both represent totalitarianism.

          5. Mathew Molk says

            Like the Klunton foundation?

          6. MAHB001 says

            Exactly.

          7. JCluvsTrump says

            Which Corps? The Marine Corps? The Peace Corps? The Corps of Engineers? Or perhaps some schools Drum & Fife Corps?

          8. Mathew Molk says

            I was a Combat Engineer. – That count?

          9. JCluvsTrump says

            Sorry, no. Unless you built dams on the Mississippi or something.

          10. Greg Hernandez says

            I was in the USAF and we weren’t a corps, Don’t know what John did . but I was in St. Anselm’s Fife and Drum Corps. 1954 to 1960 and am a member of The American Originals Fife and Drum Corps . since 1999, never heard of any Drum and Fife Corps. LOL and have a great day.

          11. JCluvsTrump says

            I realized my error after the fact. Good catch. Were you a drummer or a fifer?

          12. Sol_of_Texas says

            I think he meant corporations but was in too much of a hurry to spell it all the way out.

          13. JCluvsTrump says

            Haste makes waste. He should pay attention to detail.

          14. Sol_of_Texas says

            I can’t argue with that. A third of posts on these cites I have difficulty reading and understanding because the diction, spelling, grammar, and punctuation are so awful. Ironically many of those posters enjoy bitching about the state of education in the US. 😮

          15. richard king says

            It’s a generic word, dummy.

            Since when, bitch?

          17. richard king says

            For over a hundred years, you subhuman jerk. Go back to fifth grade and learn English. Try also to clear up your gender identity problem.

          18. JCluvsTrump says

            ESAD, maggot. Now, please vacate the ladies restroom.

          19. richard king says

            Never been there. The next time they catch you playing footsie in the men’s room stalls to earn money for your services, you might work on that gender identity crisis.

          20. JCluvsTrump says

            Spare me you pedophile.

          21. richard king says

            Nope, not that either. Just normal stuff here. How;s the footsie business going? Have a productive night, weirdo.

          22. JCluvsTrump says

            That’s funny because pedophiles think they are normal.

          23. JCluvsTrump says

            I think you and I should call a truce. Obviously we are on the same side here. All I ask is that you learn how to spell “CORPORATION”. Now, what can I do for you?

          24. Retired says

            Free Tax Dollars that Co. never pay back .

          25. Marialice Barone says

            It’s a phrase that Liberals throw around..they don’t know what it means, but sounds like Corporations are screwing the tax payer!

          26. Mathew Molk says

            And the just think of how all the guys that make a living working for the evil corporations got screwed too. Their families also suffered every time they got a pay raise.

            But then snowflakes live off their parents and never worked for anybody so they would not know how horrible it is to get a paycheck from one of those evil corporations.

        3. Pam Dunn says

          BULLSHYTE

          1. Retired says

            Do a search and find out for yourself instead of bulshyt . You are not well informed on the subject .

          2. Marialice Barone says

            You are the one not informed. There is no such thing as Corporate Welfare..it’s something people like you parrot and have no clue what you are talking about!

          3. Retired says

            You as clueless as a wet dream .

          4. Mathew Molk says

            Even if it were true what happens to that money? I’ll clue you in. They don’t stuff pillow cases with it.

            For instance, what percentage of the money spent on an Abrams tank ends up at Giant Eagle?

          5. Retired says

            Part of it goes to a place Called Crystal city, outside Of WDC where all the Rich Gov. contractors hide out . It has been proven here on this site that Co. welfare is higher than people welfare.

      4. Garys_opinion says

        Actually we did win the Viet Nam war. The north was finished, but much to their surprise Ford pulled us out, snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory.

        1. Michael Dennewitz says

          It was referred to as the Vietnam CONFLICT, never declared a war!?

          1. Pam Dunn says

            Sure stupid and the KOREAN WAR was called a “UN Police Action” too.
            Nothing like a bunch of leftist politicians naming things, writing stupid ROE’s and making sure its all turned into a loss. Look at Obama and Iraq.

          2. catman says

            Actually Pam, that is what President Truman did call the Korean WAR. Like the TV program posted, “I WAS THERE”.

          3. Greg Hernandez says

            Truman called it that but not many others. War is War call it what you may but words can be used in many ways to say what things mean and UN Korean Police Action does not really explain what happened there.

          4. Sol_of_Texas says

            My father served in 2nd ID during 1951-1952.

            It is probably accurate to refer to it as the Korean Civil War. It continues to this day – the peninsula is under an extended cease fire – no armistice or treaty formally marked an end of the war.

          5. cal3301 says

            It has to be declared a war, to be a war. My father fought in it and it was called a military police action, to which they ended with a full retreat.

          6. berg1928 says

            Look at Bush and Iraq.

          7. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            You do realize that neither major political party holds any high ground in the pursuit of war. We would win every action if the career politicians would keep their noses out and let our Generals and Admirals do their jobs without interference. The majority of the congress-critters have no military experience and could not figure out how to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions printed on the heel. Visualize Mad Lizzy Warren, Schmuck Schumer or Maxine Waters leading the charge.

          8. cal3301 says

            Korea was called a Military Police Action, it was never declared a war and the UN had nothing to do with it. Maybe you should watch MASH, it’s still in reruns.

          9. Greg Hernandez says

            Only by cowards who weren’t there and the media who hated it. Maybe not ” Officially ” a war , but when there are over 200,000 casualties on both sides and many more wounded it really isn’t a ‘ Conflict “. Just like Truman’s stupid decision to call Korea a Police action…..Right… can’t you see the LAPD holding off half a million Chinese ? ( Only Hollywood can see that BTW ) . Semantics be damned but Truman was afraid of war against China and Russia so he played the game with the UN. This from a man who commanded Artillery in WW1.

          10. berg1928 says

            Truman put a stop to WWII fast enough. Or doesn’t that count?

          11. Greg Hernandez says

            The A bomb was in the works when FDR died. Truman made the decision to drop it although FDR had already decided it should be dropped. He trusted Truman so much , that Truman knew nothing about the bomb. Read Plain Speaking it tells the story well.

          12. berg1928 says

            Nevertheless, it was Truman who gave the order to drop “little Boy”.
            Eisenhauer didn’t like Nixon or Kennedy. Kennedy didn’t like Johnson. I can’t remember if Truman liked Ike or not. (I LIKED Ike.)

          13. Greg Hernandez says

            Eisenhower did not like Kennedy because JFK was supposed to face court martial for disobeying orders , being in the wrong position and letting a slower Japanese destroyer run over PT-109. Daddy Kennedy bought off a bunch of naval officers and a bunch of politicians and the matter was dropped ( In good demo-liar fashion ).He was heroic in saving his crew but was responsible for them being shipwrecked for his stupidity.
            LBJ was a loud mouthed braggart who did not deliver the majority that JFK wanted. He also is a holder of the phoniest Silver Star ever awarded by the US Navy when he went up in a bomber and somehow came under withering Japanese aircraft fire ….. The only problem was there were no Japanese forces closer than 800 miles of his position.He bought off and bargained with his politician buddies and not a word got out to the public until after his presidential term was over.
            Ike did not care for Nixon , but Nixon did deliver on his promises of support for Ike. Ike did tolerate him but not much more, considering Nixon to be a butt kisser.

          14. berg1928 says

            I’m not disputing what you are saying. I voted for Truman, Ike, Nixon, Ford. Did not vote for Johnson or Kennedy.

          15. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            AMEN!

          16. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            A democrat with balls. Who would have ever thunk it?

          17. Mathew Molk says

            I can tell you were not there,,,,especially during the ’68 TET. All that incoming anf the bullets hitting the sandbags around my head sure had me fooled into thinking it was a war. The parents of my 2 guys that got killed would disagree it not being a war too.

          18. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Thanks Matt, but I fear those who were not there will never get it. I was there During Tet. DaNang harbor as I recall and in no where near the peril you and your buddies were under. Semper Fi to you my brother from a Squid! Welcome home once again.

          19. cal3301 says

            Military Police Action, like Korea.

          The corrupt media convinced Americans that the NV won.

        3. Snoopdoggydoug says

          You must have read that phony article, supposedly written by a north Vietnamese general. In actuality we were never even close to winning in Nam, and this I got from guys who were there.

          1. Greg Hernandez says

            Sorry dude but I was there TWICE. The press always said the VC won during the TET offensive. Totally UNTRUE. We destroyed them to the point that they never fought us in a standup fight again.They suffered over 50,000 dead and many more wounded. Second , The NVA attacked Khe Sanh and surrounded it BUT they never took and HELD one inch of territory and Marine gunners and American airpower caused thousands of NVA casualties and kept pounding them as they retreated.
            The North was very close to losing it all but Democrats , like the traitors they are , kept up the protests and the press kept up the lies. Don’t YOU remember HEY , HEY , Ho Chi Minh , Hanoi’s Gonna Win . I sure do and that is why the dem protesters of today sicken me like their parents did in the 60’s and 70’s/. Damned traitors and more importantly , damned punk cowards.
            So now you got the truth from someone who was there Pleiku 65-66 , Phu Cat 67. USAF 63 – 69.

          3. Greg Hernandez says

            Took several washings and I threw away my civvy sneakers !Welcome Home to you too. I like your posts because you get it. These Demorats today are worse than their parents. They think nothing of lying , cheating , booing God , murdering babies and being bigger America Haters than the Commies ever were. We are in a real over what set of values we will live by. American values or regressive / socialist lack of values. I’ll keep up the good fight .

          4. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          15. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            I occasionally toss one in for effect. I too feel it’s not all that useful. Did you see the democRAT who was actually kicked from the party in Nebraska for his profanity laced rant desiring the death of Rep. Steve Scalise? His is caused by the liberal insanity however.

          16. berg1928 says

            I think it was just caused by his insanity.

        4. Mathew Molk says

          Walter krankite did a job on us too. After the 68 TET the VC were decimated and the NVA was in full retreat, All we had to do is chase them across the DMZ and take Hanoi but Walter hit the TV shows and convinced the people it was the GIs that were on the run. = Johnson add the son of a bitch that should have never left Detroit went right along with the program and noe there are twice as many names on the wall in DC as there would have been. — How do I know? —- I was there from 8 Aug 67 to 7 Aug 68.and we were winning when I left.

          1. jaybird says

            Krankite is/was a NWO supporter! Johnson and McCain’s father were involved in the bombing of the USS Liberty. A shame that our country decided to do this.

        7. Sol_of_Texas says

          Under Ford, we shamefully refused to continue to provide the RVN with desperately needed supplies. Hence, the South and Saigon were overrun by force in the spring of 1975 with an ensuing purge of “enemies of the state”.

          Worse still, the US renigged on its SEATO Treaty obligations which were still in effect at the time.

        8. rick meek says

          Thanks – the truth will come out and the politicians are the ones to blame….Sold out after over 58K dead…..

        9. cal3301 says

          Vietnam was a police action, it was never declared a war. It was just like Korea.
          As an old song use to go “We’re off to Korea, it’s not very far, it’s just a police action, it isn’t a war. Don’t call out the Army, don’t call out the Navy, Don’t call out the Coast Guard, Just call out the Corps.”

        10. cal3301 says

          Aside from my last remark, Vietnam was an un-win-able war. My father served two 14 month tours outside of Da Nang. 1964-1965 and 1968-1969. It was a Congressional war. Meaning they controlled which way the wind or the ammo blew. If the advancement was not in the need of Congress at that time, the men were told to give up ground. Do you have any idea as to how many men were killed repeatedly trying to retake a hill that they were told to let go, over and over and over and so on???? There were many hills like that. Again, just like Korea. Both police actions ended in a retreat, without any winners.

          1. pineapple says

            For more details on the Vietnam war, read “Matterhorn” by Karl Marlantes.

          2. cal3301 says

            Thanks. My dad had a lot of info that him and I use to talk about. I visited the hospital in Valley Forge that the POW’s were returned to and I visited the injured that were there often. I saw several sides of that war through many stories.

          3. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Made a lot of money for the military industrial complex and their toady cronies in Congress.

          4. cal3301 says

            Exactly. My dad had a record called “Tell it to the Marines”, which had a verse on it that stated “Congress sent a tour around, they loaded up with scotch, while they were really living, we had 40’s up the crotch. They cried lets kill the bastards, lets drive them to their knees, but there weren’t any Congressmen in the list of casualties.”

          5. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            I am trying to picture Schmuck Schumer or any number of pencil necked geeks from Congress in a helmet. Would look as stupid as Michael Dukakis did when he was running. LMAO at the visual. Don’t think there’s is a Drill Sargeant alive that could make a man out of a liberal.

          6. cal3301 says

            You would probably have to lie to them in order to get them to do what’s right. Given their lies for decades, it seems to be the only thing they understand. Other than that, they don’t appear to have any physical attributes. Just look at those protesting on the left and the lack of any fitness level of those in Congress.

          7. richard king says

            Must not let politicians run wars. Bush 1 let the military run the Iraq 1 invasion and it was fine. Trump now lets the military run the war on ISIS, and it’s fine. Valery Jarret was running the mideast policy and military action, the absolute height of stupidity.

          8. cal3301 says

            The problem in most wars are the fact that politicians have their noses in them from day one. They talk a good talk, but avoid any action.

            If Trump wants a second term he should expand Obamacare. There are now 20 mi Americans on Obamacare. That means they will not vote for Trump in 2020. But each of these will get 5 friends and relatives. That means 100,000,000 voters will not vote for Trump; he will be out. If Trump is smart he should expand Obamacare and without deductibles or out of pocket premium payments. Funding for expanded Obamacare can come from having a 0.01 sales tax for everything except food items. Therefore you rich morons will pay more into the Obamacare expanded because you will purchase expensive items such as: expensive cars, jets; cruises; luxury houses; luxury buses; heavy equipment. The good part you will not feel paying the money because it will be part of price.

          3. MAHB001 says

            BS, not even a nice try.

            I know you can not connect the dots, but those reading this post can. The only reason 0bama wanted socialized medicine was to enslave the United State with Communism.

            C’mon, Tim. Surely you can’t be so stupid as to believe that a man that has shown you less respect and courtesy than most would afford a stray dog would actually be adversely impacted by anything you have to say.

            Indeed, beyond showing yourself as being unable to control your emotions like a man, all you’ve accomplished with your odd hissy-fit is to demonstrate that you’re (see how easy, Tim?) also too stupid and/or incompetent to grasp the simple concept of ‘too’ and given yet another opportunity to mock you as inept.

            Your ignorance is well illustrated by your inability to communicate in any manner other than vile language. For your information I started work at 11 and worked until I was 71. I took advantage of what the military could do for me and for four years service learned enough technology to peak my interest and received an education with help from the GI bill. I worked my way up to VP, President, and part owner of two companies. The difference between us is that I realized my future was dependent on my education and commitment to work and learn. You on the other hand appear to have a life blaming the world for your failures. Color of skin has nothing to do with success or failure there are as many blacks as whites who have similar stories and the reasons are the same, dedication, focus, planning, and commitment.

            Trump is a legally-documented racist. That legal history begins with United States v. Trump. NY, 1973. There are 200 just like it.

            His penchant for lying is well documented. There in no doubt that he suffers from Compulsive Lying Disorder, aka, mytholomania or pseudologia fantastica.

            Compulsive lying disorder is actually not included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), except as a symptom of factitious disorder. Hence, it is not medical grounds for removal from office.

HAHA If you’re a person who went to school and on to college to learn a trade to make good money to be successful in life, this bastard thinks you should pay for his health care!! All because he was to sorry & lazy to do that. Your a perfect example of a life long bastard who has been on gov. handouts his whole life and instead of trying to better themselves they just want you to give more and more. Pay for their homes, their food, their cars, their healthcare, and all he wants to do is lay around getting drunk or high and make more babies for others to feed and support. What will you want us to get you next a private jet with 24 hr. pilot service at your will call? well from one hard working tax paying american that feels like that if you want healthcare you should work for it. for the 20 million you speak of, the other 300 million is tired of supporting you freeloading bums. !!

            I didn’t pull your chain you arrogant bastard. And no one can stand your gov. raised ass! you think just because a man works his ass off to get wealthy his whole life that he ought to pay for everyone else’s health care, food, house’s, cars, and it never stops the more you give the more the freeloading bastards want. And I never claimed to be a christian but I don’t think they want to support the sick, lame & lazy either. So you think being a christian means feeling sorry for people who choose to lay around get drunk and do drugs with the food stamps they get while living in a house and driving a car tax money is already paying for. And let’s don’t forget we have to pay for babies to be killed because they don’t care to use protection. ( or just to damn stupid ) You just want people who are successful and save wisely there whole life to just give there money away huh. shame on you for having nice things when people have nothing. If you can afford a nice boat and a nice home and cars and go on 4 to 5 vacations a year you’re a bad person!! (never mind that you worked 60 hours a week for 30 years to get it )But by your standards you’re a selfish piece of shit and should be looked down on because we have it. Well fuck you, you low life scum. If you don’t work for it then you shouldn’t have it. I didn’t mind helping people in need But now because of there give me more, give me more Attitude and show no appreciation for what we already give them and show nothing but hate for us. That makes one do everything they can to avoid paying more taxes. So to you and every other mother fucker who thinks this country owes them anything FUCK YOU !!

            Your sewer language is very childish.
            It suggests you have a very poor command of the English language.
            Oh, and maybe yoy should look up your words. Women cannot be bastards, only men can.

            Oh, and ignorant one, Medicaid does not pay for abortions on demand…simply more of your ignorance. Moreover, it does not pay for birth control, either. You would thin that hateful people like you would be happy to keep more babies from being born.

            Trump inherited his wealth.
            He does not know the meaning of work.

            I am a retired surgeon.
            I’ve put in many a 60+ hour week
            I did two tours at combat hospitals in Vietnam.
            Buried two husband at Arlington — KIA, Vietnam.

            Christ did not have a great deal of kind words for the wealthy.
            In fact, he told them to give it all away and follow him. His orders very specific about taking care of the poor: Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the homeless, heal the sick …

            Yes, shame on you, if you have a huge bank account and do nothing for the poor. You cannot buy your way into heaven, or out of sin.

            I’m proud to pay taxes. That means I’m making money. That means I pay those who give their lives to keep us safe.

          49. AKLady says

            Exactly.
            Add the fact that Trump is a legally-documented racist .

          58. Bruce A. Frank says

            Pmbalele, and the country will collapse. There are only one way for single payer, which is what you advocate, to work. It is to cut the care dramatically, and disqualify anyone who is seriously sick from receiving any medical care what so ever. That would include birth defects, cancer, serious injury (anything that requires more than a few days of hospitalization or ANY lifetime treatment or drug therapy)!

            As for your mistaken belief that the “rich” aren’t paying their “fair share,” it is amazing how you can just make up statistics out of thin air. The FACTS are, from the government’s own accounting, the top ten percent of wage earners in the US pay 70% of all taxes! Forty seven percent of all people in the US PAY NO TAXES, and most of those receive a check from the IRS as a “earned credit” subsidy. It appears to me, and anyone with half a brain, that the 47% are the ones not paying their “fair share.”

            Government’s job is not to provide womb to tomb “care” of any kind. The government’s job is to get out of the way and allow business to flourish thus providing jobs to skilled and educated workers to make the living it takes to buy their car and its insurance and their own health insurance. Government regulation on unfathomable levels is the primary reason for astronomical medical costs; for astronomical education costs; for high fuel and other energy costs.

            We have worldwide examples of the failure of socialism and communism. When you promise the electorate that you are going to take the earnings of the rich and give it to the poor; that somehow the rich have oppressed to poor and must be punished, you end up with a society in which there is no incentive for either the rich or the poor to work. You end up with a virtually non-functioning government unable to provide the things that government is hired to do such as build and maintain roads and bridges; maintain law enforcement, and a defensive force that protects the lives and lifestyle of the people who are citizens of the country.

          59. pmbalele says

            What – single payer will cut the care dramatically, and disqualify anyone who is seriously sick from receiving any medical care what so ever and include birth defects, cancer, serious injury (anything that requires more than a few days of hospitalization or ANY lifetime treatment or drug therapy)! You must be working for insurance companies. That is exactly what they do to insured. Sarah Palin son was denied coverage because he is down-syndrome defect. You know such kids frequent clinics more than regular kids. The policy I had suggested will cut out insurance companies which are just sucking your money. You get sick, they will dump you. Single pay is the best. Go to Sweden or Canada. Everybody will have access their doctors directly without insurance companies’ consultation. Wake up-America. Let us have single payer. This will be funded by 0.01 sales tax for everything except food. There will be no deductibles or out pocket monthly premium payment.

            Where did you come up with such idiotic ideas?
            .
            The very rich bank off shore. The tax they pay represents a mere pittance of their income.

            I say Congress should put the WW II tax rates back into effect. Then the Koch Brother would be paying 90% federal income tax.

            You are so brainwashed, you don’t know how ignorant your statements are. Foolish one, people who cannot afford to buy health care become disabled.

            At that point you provide 100% of their food, clothing and shelter.
            You seem to think it is great that 47% of Americans earn so little, that they do not pay federal income tax.

            Oh, and stupid one, that 47% pays one hell of a lot more of their income on taxes than any of the to[ earners. Every time they buy food, clothing and shelter they pay taxes. The Florida top sales tax is 7.5%. Louisiana’s combined rate is 9.98%.

            Here’s how the U.S. Empire will devolve into fascism and then collapse-according to science

            June 30, 2017 by Russell Roberts

            Comment:

            According to a University of Hawaii at Manoa sociologist, the United States “Empire” is living on borrowed time. Professor Johan Galtung, who correctly used modern analytical tools to predict the downfall of the Soviet Union and the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center, believes U.S. power, reputation, and influence will decline rapidly under President Donald Trump. Galtung says his original prediction of 25 years for the collapse of the United States has been reduced to less than 20 years, thanks to the past policies of President George W. Bush and the isolationist/protectionist stance of current President Donald Trump. Galtung adds that the final gasp of the U.S. Empire will come as an extreme right-wing political philosophy takes hold of America and transforms the country into a fascist state.

            Professor Galtung bases his predictions on a model comparing the rise and fall of 10 historical empires and on what he calls “synchronizing and mutually reinforcing contradictions.”

            Galtung says the future of our country is grim and foreboding:

            “American fascism would spring from its capacity for global violence, a vision of exceptionalism, a belief in an inevitable and final war between good and evil, the cult of a strong state leading that battle, and a cult of the “strong leader.”

            “Galtung said all of those elements presented themselves during the Bush era, but he fears fascist tendencies could sharpen under Trump as those cultists lash out in disbelief at the loss of American power.”

            “The sociologist identified unsustainable economic, social, military and political contradictions that would eventually topple the U.S. as a world power.”

            “Overproduction relative to demand, unemployment and the increasing costs of climate change would weaken the U.S. economy, according to his model.”

            “Galtung also predicted that rising tensions between the U.S., NATO and its military allies, coupled with the increasing economic costs of war and the political conflicts between the U.S., United Nations and the European Union, would also diminish American power.”

            Opinion:

            Professor Galtung offers a chilling look at what our nation is becoming. We are overextended, amazingly ignorant about the real world, and woefully unprepared to confront our adversaries. Our national leadership ignores the advice of our allies, squanders our resources in endless wars, and refuses to confront the truths of science, technology, and economics. Time is running out to address our weaknesses, both foreign and domestic. If we’re unable to confront the challenges of a multi-dimensional world, we will collapse of our own accord and join the former Soviet Union as another historical relic. As it stands now, the future no longer belongs to us.

          72. LANE says

            Redells, What a lot of people don’t know is how many people are taking advantage of the welfare system. Do you know that every single city has to have subsidize housing in order to get government funding to get money for example for building roads? You need to talk to rental managers or Investors who have a lot of rental properties! There are families who don’t get married for government subsidies. There are families who have kids, but keeps the wife last name and kids keep wife last name, but the husband keeps his separate last name. How about this one..Man has baby, but put’s the baby under his son’s last name who is in jail so mistress gets welfare. Do you ever wonder why their are women wanting to marry a stranger inmate? How about mother gets subsidize housing but rents the subsiding house out?! How do you think I know these things? How about illegals asking to rent your house and boss of company will cosign for him because he has no identity?
            I think we need to take care of the ones that need it, but figure out the ones that don’t. What you don’t know is what you don’t know! When you hear this country has so many people on welfare and food stamps, you better believe it! Here is another one…Government is helping the poor go to school and paying them to not work at Mcdonalds while in college! If you make less then a certain amount you are giving extra money to pay for you loan toward end of quarter or keep it and pay it in a student loan later. But if you are a older fellow with a spouse that make over 30000 you are screwed and have to get a loan. You have a older workforce who many took some college courses 10, 20, 25 years ago or longer, quit college to get a job before getting their degree. Now looking for a job, but can’t get one because degrees are a dime a doze, so want to return to college, but they have to pay for it because they are not poor enough, but yet having a hard time to go back to school and return to college demoralized because they find out that NOT ONE SINGLE Technical college credited are good anymore, and have to start completely over!!!!!!!!! unless they received a two year or four year degree they have no credit because regent colleges do not accept them after 10 years. I am hearing 7 years now. How do I know this you ask? I have 147 Semester credit hours. A typical Bachelor’s degrees needs 120 credit Semester hours. I only have a diploma in electronics and is NO GOOD FOR NOTHING NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAD TO START OVER…VERY UPSET WITH THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. When you hear about the gigantic Government student loan debt, realize a lot of people are

          73. LANE says

            I will tell you exactly what I think. You have drank the democratic cool aid…They lie, instigate, exaggerate about the TRUTH!!!. MoveOn.org was the biggest Left fake news of its time in 2007-2008 until they were exposed. Social Media has exposed the Left Media…You need to know something redells, I voted for Obama, and REGRE IT NOW!!! CNN is pathetic…I DESPISE THAT NEWS SOURCE…PLEASE TELL EVERYONE THEY ARE TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          74. AKLady says

            Norway’s system works very well.

            You have been severely brainwashed.

            National health care is a lot less expensive than supporting the disabled for a lifetime, but you can’t be bothered looking at the numbers.

            WHy don’t you tell us how these countries are collapsing: India. Israel, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Denmark, Finland,, France, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Columbia, Australia, and New Zealand

            Hey! I like it!

          76. LANE says

            You are missing something pmbalele…There are millions of people getting free housing, food stamps, free college, and who want to keep their free healthcare. I am sick and tired of poor people having a good living as lower middle class worker who has to work and don’t have time to protest their republican point of view. Poor people should stay poor if they don’t contribute to society! I thank my lucky stars every night that Donald Trump is our president every single night.

          77. pmbalele says

            What – Republican point of view! There is no such view. Repubs and TPs hate Trump for he wants to insure every American. That way when out as President, his ex-wives will continue to be covered without deductibles or out of pocket premium payments. Please read my suggestion how to expand Obamacare. Second, it is the Repubs and TPs campaigning to impeach Trump – not Democrats. We want Trump to succeed because it is in our best interest too. Third, it is the Repubs and TPs that I see on cross roads pan-handling. Money they get is not taxable; which is goal for Repubs and TPs. Repubs and TPs who mostly are CEOs want illegals in this Country. Children of Repubs and TPs don’t want to work; but do drugs. That is why they are opposed shipping out illegals. As a whole Trump should be careful with so-called friends such as: Ryan, McConnell, Cruz, Bill O’rielly, Sean Hannity, Allen West; Herman Cain; Dr. Carson, Gov. Sanford, Newt; Gov. Bentley; News People In Patriot News Daily.co.; Right Wing Voice; Fix The Nation, Patriot Viral News; American Liberty Report; TEA Party; Front Page Report; Conservative Free Press; Restore American Glory; From Right; Conservative Zone; Right-Wise. These laugh with Trump when present; but behind the scene they talk really bad about him. Trump should avoid you and Repubs.

          78. LANE says

            pmbalele, so you think under Obama that our world affairs, job killing policy, a enormous growth in recipients on welfare, food stamps, who get free college and free healthcare who don’t have to work and live better than a lower middle class family who does work is the way to go..People like you are delusional, but understandably seemed to be influence by the terrible reporting Left press!

          79. AKLady says

            Fred Koch built refineries for Hitler, trained people to run them.
            Prescott Bush was their banker.
            The Bush and bin Laden families were close friends.
            They funded Bush’s bankruptcies and his struggling oil company.

            Soros was 8 years old when Hitler invaded Hungary.
            He had just turned 14 when the war ended.
            The right-wing does not like fact and truth.

          80. Tim says

            That’s good stop hating cause it wasn’t you.

          81. MAHB001 says

            Koch is just a name you made up in your head so that you could point a finger at somebody to justify your own bad behavior.

            Liberals have to do that because otherwise their behavior is down right revolting.

          82. AKLady says

            Your ignorance is immense.

          83. MAHB001 says

            Your insults are feckless…

            Look it up ignorant one.

          84. LANE says

            We can same to you. We have built a better case then you have and all you can say is ignorance is immense. You need to explain better

          85. Kol says

            Your first sentence makes no sense at all. Your 2nd sentence uses “then” when it should be “than”… look at how you write… there’s really not much that needs to be explained. Geesh! Learn 5th grade grammar skills!

          86. LANE says

            You did not explain anything except your a A-HOLE!

          87. Kol says

            Look at YOURSELF!

          88. Kol says

            Are you an anti-Muslim bigot too? Or racist?

          89. LANE says

            Kol, English maybe your strong point, but I guarantee you can’t build a house from ground up and including installing electrical or HVAC or work on a car and I bet my math is better than yours! Like I said, the only thing that you prove is that you are a A-HOLE!

            .The Koch Brothers make Trump look poor.

            Their connections go back to Hitler’s Germany.
            Their father, Frederic Koch built refiners for the Third Reich
            Ilse Koch, the Bitch of Buchenwald made lamp shades from human skin.+
            Koch Industries has more than 120,000 employees
            They own Georgia-Pacific, Flint Hills Resources, Guardian Industries, Investa, Molex. Koch AG & Energy Koch Chemical. Koch Minerals, Koch Minerals, Koch Pipeline, Koch Supoly & Trading, Matador Cattle …

          94. MAHB001 says

            Koch Brothers is fake news. Created by the left to divert attention away from their own liberal deep pocket funding animals like Soros.

          95. AKLady says

            There is nothing fake about the Koch Family history.

            It is well-documented in the history books.

            Fred C. Koch is the son of Harry Koch, German citizen.
            Fred C. Koch was a founding member of the John Birch Society.
            Fred C. Koch built refineries for Hitler.
            Fred C. Koch was arrested at a riot against Catholics being hired onto the NYC Police Force.

          96. MAHB001 says

            Tokyo AK, there is everything fake about everything you say.

            Go chase your boogeyman.

          97. AKLady says

            You must enjoy embarrassing yourself before the world.
            The name calling is just so nursery-school.

          98. MAHB001 says

            Tokyo, you have been measured, you have come up lacking.

            I am not the one that has been embarrassed.

          99. AKLady says

            The name calling is just so nursery-school.

            Here you are with the same infantile behavior.
            You must enjoy embarrassing yourself before the world.

          104. Kol says

            Stupid? You write a 4-word sentence and can’ even punctuate correctly. Talk about STUPID. Another good laugh! Thanks again!

            Reduced to grammar police, what an insignificant troll you are.

            ya got nothing…

          106. Kol says

            Well, you know, it’s boring when the ones with almost no intellect like you come along trying to annoy people. Kind of makes people yawn and puts us to sleep. But keep talking, maybe someday you’ll say something intelligent. Surprise us!

          107. MAHB001 says

            So every time I respond, you get paid a penny by Soros… interesting. you get nothing, Soros is a penny poorer, and he got nothing…

            AKLady, Your Hitler theme is totally fruitcake. but how about I call you Stalin who killed twice and many people in Russian then Hitler did to his own people who started communism in Russia and had everyone lives were controlled. The truth is, the Trump administration has not been able to take advantage of showing how bad things have been run over the last 8 years, but that is partially because of the bias press and selected press who instigate and selected on what and how they want the america people want to hear. There are alot of republican voters who are silence and think just like me, and agree that something has to be done to the anti-trump and bias LEFT press.

          111. Kol says

            A lot of YOUR thinking is very distorted and you seem to have your own “reality” about quite a lot of things.

          112. LANE says

            Kol, don’t you get it?…Your political agenda to be a flower child to save the world and let all illegals come to America to live, to let everyone live on welfare , that no country will ever attack us if we get up and leave places like the Middle East wars right now, and want have to worry about North Korea as long as America live like an isolationist…You truly needs your head exam and is someone who is narrow minded and selected to what he wants to read and hear from the news…It is you that is distorted! Absolutely distorted, unequivocally distorted.

          113. Kol says

            Вы действуете как полный идиот. Зачем? Вернитесь в школу и получите образование!

          114. Kol says

            You seem to forget it was Republicans (GWB, and a GOP-controlled Congress, to be exact) who started those Middle East Wars, the cost of which are destroying America’s economy. And the first one — against Iraq — was based upon LIES about “weapons of mass destruction” which never even existed. How long do you think it will be before Trump starts a new war, maybe a nuclear war, or even WW3???

          115. AKLady says

          118. AKLady says

            You have just proven you don’t have the slightest idea of which you speak.
            Putin is Trump’s idol. Apparently, you have missed all the praise that has spewed from Trump’s mouth.

            Trump has son’s that are FAR MORE RETARDED than him.

          121. Chi Sam says

            The simple word sons is the plural form of the word son.

            Only an ignorant dope would shoehorn an apostrophe into a simple plural.

            Just more propaganda from Tokyo AK. What a load of shiet.

          126. LANE says

            AKLady, what I see….for whatever reason you don’t like Trump, and rather you like it or not,the world affairs is under fire because the last administration! Also, you are not hearing from the left exactly how bad, and that we have other problems beside Iraq, Syria, North Korea that you are not being aware by your local Left press. You are not getting good details about what is going on around you because you have a Left press who does not care for what you know, but whats to influence you! Do you realize that a lot of Left press had spouses working under Obama administration? How about you GOOGLE Edward Mezvinsky or did you know the Khan daddy of war hero that was in the news for being anti-Trump is a immigration lawyer and had a web site that supposedly has been taken down after the Trump confrontation? I think the Left has been passing some Kool- Aid that has been very powerful for the democratic supporters… It is called Left bias media.

            Kol, you are reading fake poles and bias news again…Don’t you get it! Obama had a lot of left press spouses working in his administration…Stop drinking the Kool -Aid!!!!!!!!!!!!
            ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.
            CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.
            ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney
            ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary
            ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood
            CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
            And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.
            Ya think there might be a little bias in the news ???
            It also explains the cover up of Benghazi………

          129. Kol says

            Reading “poles”??? Isn’t a pole something you stick in the ground and hang a flag on?? (I guess you meant “polls”…) You’re writing looks sort of idiotic all the way through.,.. lots of poor grammar, using the wrong words, bad punctuation and poor spelling. One really would like to think people who engage in discussions in these public forums have a little more real “intellect” than someone who flunked out of the 5th grade. You waste people’s time.

          130. AKLady says

            He us probably a Russian plant.
            Trump is buddy-buddy with Putin, claims to know him, has repeatedly said how wonderful Putin is.

          131. Kol says

            i sort of have my doubts that he’s “Russian.” I know Russia and Russians from extended family there and time I’ve spent living there. to have fun with some of them I’m close to. The kind of mistakes he makes are not mistakes that a Russian who knows English as a 2nd language would make. And the ones I know who speak English are fairly fluent and make few mistakes. Of my 2 adopted as adult Russian sons, one speaks English perfectly, despite a bad (lazy) accent. The other one doesn’t speak it — well, maybe 40 – 50 words — but when he does try to use it with me he doesn’t make mistakes. He’s very careful about tthat.

          132. AKLady says

            No. Trump is not an ethnic Russian.
            However, it was Russians who bailed him out of bankruptcy #7.
            A number of people close to him have recently lied about having had contact with Russians, i.e., Sessions, Kushner, Flynn …
            Trump fired Comey because he would not drop the investigation.

          133. AKLady says

            So what?
            They are rational, mature adults.

          137. AKLady says

            Exactly what do you claim he has done?

          138. AKLady says

            Yet, it was the Bush and the Koch who supported, funded, and supplied the Nazi regime. Fred Koch built refineries for Hitler, trained people to run them. Prescott Bush was their banker.

          139. Tim says

            we need a Nazi regime to run this country if it would shut people up like your hating ass!!

          140. AKLady says

          141. AKLady says

            The Bush and the Koch supported the Nazi, provided them with material and weapons. Nice to know which side you are on, Richard.

          142. richard king says

            You have no credibility. You are a fraud. Pardon me, don’t trust your research, and do not want to communicate with you henceforth. I am on the side of the duly elected president who is a patriot, not a traitor like Obama.

            Is a patriot the same thing as a Racist Misogynist PERVERTED pathological lying Criminal Asshole?
            It must be if Trump is a patriot.

          145. 2Deep4_U says

            Trump’s impeachment will be a GREAT day for the US.

            There are no facts. There are no votes. There are no legal grounds. He will not be impeached. You lefty numbskulls calling for his impeachment, like the corrupt and utterly stupid Maxine Watters and Al Green will be disappointed. We should take your vote away because of sheer stupidity, probably bought anyway.

          149. 2Deep4_U says

          150. richard king says

            The real racist was our last president, Barack Obama. He was a racist, and his attorneys general were racists. BLM is based on lies. I don’t like white racists, but I don’t like black racists, either. I don’t like chickens who wear black masks to rallies, either. Go back and lay around Mom’s basement, punk.

          152. richard king says

            There are certainly black racists, and they are every bit as bad as white racists.
            Your debating skills need work, calling your betters names won’t cut it.

            No, you are a black racist. Like Obama was/is. Black racists are bad people.

          157. Chi Sam says

            The correct words are ‘are’ and ‘racists’.

            Typical, that you’re calling another poster ignorant.

            What are you talking about. All of the lefties in this discussion hate whitey and hate the greatest nation on earth because is was founded by a bunch of white men.
            And that is not racist? Just to hate something because of the skin color of who built it?

          162. mrpoohead says

            Not the greatest nation on earth.
            Compared to our peers, that’s W Europe, Canada, NZ and Australia, worst social disparity and mobility, healthcare and education systems and a homicide rate five to ten times their’s. Bit of a toilet in reality!!!!!!

          163. Kol says

            Most definitely a toilet in reality, and Donald Trump is squatting squarely on top of it and defecating all over it while farting loudly!! Pyew!

          164. mrpoohead says

            If Trump’s on it – it’s become a pit toilet. No flush required!

          165. Kol says

            With a little luck he might fall in and drown?? (Fingers crossed!)

          166. mrpoohead says

          168. AKLady says

            Why? Because he is Jewish?
            Maybe you should pay closer attention to how the Koch rape and steak from you every day.

          169. richard king says

            I have no prejudice against Jews at all. I don’t kike frauds like yourself, though.
            Your comment about Koch is unintelligible.

          170. AKLady says

            In that case, you obviously need to increase your reading comprehension.

          171. richard king says

            You certainly don’t act like someone who does!

        2. WhiteFalcon says

          The ultimate way to fight back is to get all the Commieonazicrats as I call them, Democrats and RINOs as others refer to them, out of all government whether it is state or local or federal and replace them with patriotic conservative people whether they are Republicans or Independents, but they must be very pro Constitution and pro American. So the job is up to us.

          1. MAHB001 says

            The job is up to us, so is the blame. Both Republicans and Democrats, especially Democrats need to hold our representatives accountable for their actions.

            Judging by the last 8 years of 0bama, I do not think the Democrats are up to the challenge.

        3. greenlantern1 says

          Are you rich enough to pay for Trump’s corporate welfare?

          1. MAHB001 says

            That is a stupid question.

          2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          6. Tim says

            yea well every site that i see you on everyone is in agreement in the comment section that you’re the dumbest asshole they know and most have you blocked. You’re comments are beyond any intelligent conversations. It’s would be comical at most, but the arrogance and stupidity of your political beliefs tells us you’re a very unstable person who needs help. So I can see your concern to receive free healthcare,Butt you must understand there is nothing man can do. You can’t fix stupid. And you’re the best example they are to prove that a fact. So quit hating on the rich and the working man, You liberals will never ever be in control again of Washington! The way yall are acting you probably won’t even be a party. Face it you’re a loser

          7. AKLady says

            Name the sites.
            Provide links.

          12. richard king says

            Nonsense, he is one of the richest men in the country. He made it in private enterprise. Your people, like the Clinton Obama and their acolytes made considerable wealth by stealing from the rest of us.

          13. greenlantern1 says

            Private enterprise?
            Ever hear of Trump “University”?
            Did it accept PUBLIC funds?
            Wasn’t it sued by the New York Attorney-General?
            Ever hear of the Hoover Foundation?
            Herbert Hoover oversaw the Food For Belgium program!
            A relative of his, Margaret Hoover, oversaw the Hoover Foundation!
            She also sat on a Belgian “education” panel!
            KICKBACK??
            Who are its donors?
            Who PAYS for their “donations”?

          14. richard king says

            Trump University litigation is history, some people liked it, and some not.
            Herbert Hoover is really history, I don’t know about the Hoover foundation and Margaret Hoover, and no one else knows or cares about this anymore.
            I’m more interested in the Uranium one deal, wherein Hilary approved the sale of 20% of this country’s uranium to a shell company owned by the Russians, the Clinton Foundation receiving tens of millions and Bill receiving a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow at the same time. The Clintons are crooks, and the Obama administration enablers at the least.

          Two unnecessary wars, over 4,000 Americans killed, over 1 million innocent Iraqi elderly, children and women dead .. several new “Mai Lai” type embarrassments … That war debt will still be accumulating when your grandchildren’s children are paying taxes … if America still exists by then.

          1. MAHB001 says

            TokyoAK…. really? 0bama put your grandchildren in debt. Not the wars.

            Go back to school, repeat Civics Class.
            Congress holds the purse strings.
            You need look up the difference between deficit and debt.

          3. MAHB001 says

            Too late for that, Communists have taken over the school system anyway and all I would get is brainwashed, like you….

            Deficit-
            1. the amount by which something, especially a sum of money, is too small.

            synonyms- shortfall, deficiency, shortage, debt, arrears, negative amount, loss

            himmmm, seems that dept and deficit have very close meanings….

            Kind of like the way our Politicians use the terms Tax, Fee, Fine……

            Elite D’s = Elite R’s = Elite MEDIA = Communists…

            I would say that Communists hold the purse strings…..

            Your ridiculous buzzword “Communists” is a LOUD LAUGH!

            One thing I enjoy laughing a lot about when I’ve spent time in Russia with my extended family there is watching Russian TV and seeing Russia’s Communist Party go on the air and brag and boast very loudly about how they are Russia’s “Republican political faction” today! It’s a laugh riot to watch their freak show… they’re so-o-o right wing extremist and very conservative. Hahahaha!

            At least one good thing to know is that their Communist Party is really insignificant these days and makes up just barely One Percent (1%) of the total vote in Russia’s national elections… and unlike the U.S., 85% of Russians VOTE!
            % %

          5. MAHB001 says

            Only you communists are laughing loudly…

            The Russian Communist party doesn’t just control the Elites in the Republican Party….. They control the Elites in the Democrat party and the MEDIA….

            Elite D’s = Elite R’s = Elite MEDIA, and your Russian Communists are laughing all the way….

            Really? 0bama spent more than all his predecessors combined.

            How would you have history re-written?

          12. Kol says

            The Obama administration incurred the massive debts caused by GWBozo’s wars. The debts were already there when Obama was elected. EDUCATEyourself, goofball. And forget your asinine twist & spin… it’s pointless, mindless and ignorant — deliberately so.

          13. MAHB001 says

            Still blaming Bush I see. The Left denies and deflects because my theories are irrefutable and their plan will not work in the light of day….

            0zero (0bama) was following the Cloward-Piven strategy of over burdening the Government to the point of collapse. He hoped his spending would push America into the crisis phase of Ideological subversion.

            During the Crisis phase, 0bama would have declared Marshal Law and prolonged his regime into phase 4.

            Phase 1: Demoralization 15-20 years
            Phase 2: Destabilization 2-5 years (Destroy economy, foreign relations, Defense systems)
            Phase 3: Crisis 6 weeks – includes a violent change in power.
            Phase 4: Then Normalization which lasts indefinitely.

        I don’t think all demonrat’s are intent on bankrupting the country. I’m pretty sure that was obozo’s aim from the beginning referring to his training and who his trainers and heros were, but I don’t think all of the demonrat’s had that intent or wanted it. If you look at a bunch of the demonrat congressional representatives they are just plain and simple dumb and easily led. Just one example, Guam will tip over and sink? C’mon man, anybody that stupid certainly shouldn’t be in any job having anything to do with governing our country. The plain and simple fact is some people voting are more stupid than the person they vote for. Just to clarify the difference between dumb and stupid. Stupid is the way someone is born and it can’t be fixed. Dumb is more of a mentality thing and we are all born dumb to some extent, but dumb can be fixed by learning through reading, listening, watching, and etc., so there is really no excuse for being dumb. When you listen to some of the inept people that the demonrat’s have in Congress you can’t help but laugh. It’s really pitiful.

        So then, Mr. Smarter than the Average Bear, what are we to do with the poor? The Old? The sick? Lets just take away their healthcare, their food, rent and fuel subsidies and let Nature take it course! Statistically, of the 28 Million people who will lose health care coverage if TrumpCare is enacted, 4800 per 100,000 will die OR 1,344,000 of our fellow Americans will be dead! This isn’t counting children on Medicaid or the elderly in nursing homes or the opioid addicted. The GOP says, ” Let Em Die. Trump says, “Not my problem.” as long as we can give needless tax cuts to the wealthiest 2 %. Warren Buffett was quoted the other day as stating, He would reap an extra $695,000 a year if the GOP plan was enacted. Sweet! This is an heartless and gutless bill aimed at the most vulnerable of our society buy “Christians” who do not live their religion!

        1. LANE says

          John, What a lot of people don’t know is how many people are taking advantage of the welfare system. Do you know that every single city has to have subsidize housing in order to get government funding to get money for example for building roads? You need to talk to rental managers or Investors who have a lot of rental properties! There are families who don’t get married for government subsidies. There are families who have kids, but keeps the wife last name and kids keep wife last name, but the husband keeps his separate last name. How about this one..Man has baby, but put’s the baby under his son’s last name who is in jail so mistress gets welfare. Do you ever wonder why their are women wanting to marry a stranger inmate? How about mother gets subsidize housing but rents the subsiding house out?! How do you think I know these things? How about illegals asking to rent your house and boss of company will cosign for him because he has no identity?
          I think we need to take care of the ones that need it, but figure out the ones that don’t. What you don’t know is what you don’t know! When you hear this company has so many people on welfare and food stamps, you better believe it! Here is another one…Government is helping the poor go to school and paying them to not work at Mcdonalds while in college! However, you have a older workforce who many took some college courses 10, 20, 25 years ago or longer before quit college to work before getting their degree. Now looking for a job, but can’t get one because they are starting to be a dime a doze, so want to return to college. The return to college demoralized because they find out that NOT ONE SINGLE COURSE is credited and have to start completely over!!!!!!!!! unless it was their degree they have no credit because regent colleges do not accept them after 10 years. I am hearing 7 years now. How do I know this you ask? I have 147 Semester credit hours. A typical Bachelor’s degrees needs 120 credit Semester hours. I only have a diploma in electronics and is NO GOOD FOR NOTHING NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        How’s this for having the “inside track”?

        YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS SYSTEM WAS RIGGED AND YOU COULDN’T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT SOLVE THE PUZZLE.

        ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

        CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

        ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

        ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary

        ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

        CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
        And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.
        Ya think there might be a little bias in the news ???

            Comment:

            According to a University of Hawaii at Manoa sociologist, the United States “Empire” is living on borrowed time. Professor Johan Galtung, who correctly used modern analytical tools to predict the downfall of the Soviet Union and the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center, believes U.S. power, reputation, and influence will decline rapidly under President Donald Trump. Galtung says his original prediction of 25 years for the collapse of the United States has been reduced to less than 20 years, thanks to the past policies of President George W. Bush and the isolationist/protectionist stance of current President Donald Trump. Galtung adds that the final gasp of the U.S. Empire will come as an extreme right-wing political philosophy takes hold of America and transforms the country into a fascist state.

            Professor Galtung bases his predictions on a model comparing the rise and fall of 10 historical empires and on what he calls “synchronizing and mutually reinforcing contradictions.”

            Galtung says the future of our country is grim and foreboding:

            “American fascism would spring from its capacity for global violence, a vision of exceptionalism, a belief in an inevitable and final war between good and evil, the cult of a strong state leading that battle, and a cult of the “strong leader.”

            “Galtung said all of those elements presented themselves during the Bush era, but he fears fascist tendencies could sharpen under Trump as those cultists lash out in disbelief at the loss of American power.”

            “The sociologist identified unsustainable economic, social, military and political contradictions that would eventually topple the U.S. as a world power.”

            “Overproduction relative to demand, unemployment and the increasing costs of climate change would weaken the U.S. economy, according to his model.”

            “Galtung also predicted that rising tensions between the U.S., NATO and its military allies, coupled with the increasing economic costs of war and the political conflicts between the U.S., United Nations and the European Union, would also diminish American power.”

            Opinion:

            Professor Galtung offers a chilling look at what our nation is becoming. We are overextended, amazingly ignorant about the real world, and woefully unprepared to confront our adversaries. Our national leadership ignores the advice of our allies, squanders our resources in endless wars, and refuses to confront the truths of science, technology, and economics. Time is running out to address our weaknesses, both foreign and domestic. If we’re unable to confront the challenges of a multi-dimensional world, we will collapse of our own accord and join the former Soviet Union as another historical relic. As it stands now, the future no longer belongs to us.

            Kol… Here is what I see. I don’t like radical democrats because they don’t like pledge allegiance to the flag, they are not full equality immigration. The whole world wants to come over here but the Obama administration did not care who snuck over here and allowed a free for all who ever can cross undetected over here. The democratic channels are very,very manipulative and know we have a lot of illegals now basically becoming citizens and know this and they know they do not reflect history and don’t tell its audience how and why the world is more and more dangerous for America, the democratic channels do not say anything about how our enemy are getting stronger and stronger and why our Allies are getting weaker and weaker and a very dangerous threat. I know you are one of them,so I try to explain is a very long story short kind of way….You are one of very many ignorant ones, but not your fault it is your stations that you listen too. You have Nuclear Prolific Treaties that the world abide bys, but guest who don’t follow them…Our enemies like North Korea and Iran, but our allies do like Japan, South Korea and allies in the middle east, but while they abide by them you how China, slowing taking over the South China Seas, Russia who has done nothing but come up with more and more modernize weapons and have taken over several territories under the Obama administration( Crimera and Russia continues to occupy one-fifth of the european country Georgian territory,”) want you don’t know that Russia has the most Stronger Bomb the world has ever seen it can wipe out anything 70 miles away and blow every window out 300 miles away. You are a dummy america they are being kept quite by bad researching reporting but reporting that is guided strictly for your audience with the democratic channel. The is done so much that they ignoramus serious Democrats don’t know.

          3. Kol says

            You don’t really know as much as you think you do re: Russia.

            I am American-born and have extended family in Russia that I am quite close to. I have lived there several times for a few months at a time. And I know the Russian Federation fairly well, know Russian History, know Russian Culture, and know the Russian people. Educate yourself a little better than that! Хорошего дня!

            By the way, I hope you’re not an anti-Muslim bigot too. A small branch of my Russian family are Lezgin — Muslims from the Russian Republic of Dagestan and some live in Russia proper these days.

          4. Kol says

            This largely is pure “derp”… …

          5. LANE says

            NO IT ISN’T… CALLING ISIS a JV team like OBAMA did and to do nothing against advisor wishes when it was almost to late taking over half of Iraque is not pure derp…This is foolish thought from a pure radical democratic Leftist…You are the type of people we worry about in America. Taking American heritage statuses down over one incident in Charlotteville virginia is from selective news to help divide this nation. You are not even been told how bad america debt situation.

            Doesn’t surprise me, Shit eaters LOVE Shit.
            I don’t have a president…..

      No, the ice cream really is free, however, you get taxed on seeing it, smelling it, hearing about it, hearing rumors about it, touching it, and if you take a bite out of it (not allowed to finish it) you get bumped up into a new bracket that will cost you because, well because you’re an American and the politician can pass some junk like this for law. Bummer wrote a tax law as defined by the Supreme Court, and it should never been printed let alone acted upon or discussed ever again. It should have been tossed out because the Executive Branch doesn’t write tax laws, that is another department, oh but when all branches are under barry soteros charge, and they all conspire, the truth can be confusing… Yeah how can taxes fix climate change what a joke!!

      1. MAHB001 says

        LOL, It is very confusing when you listen to the Communists….

        But then again, they can sugar coat dirt so that people think it is good for them…

    3. Retired says

      Deport Schumer and his followers.

      1. MAHB001 says

        I think it would be better to tar and feather him, then ignore his insignificant arse…

        1. Retired says

          Make sure it’s hot tar .

      2. John D says

        Don’t deport them. Exterminate them like the vermin they are.

        1. Retired says

          YES —- Call the Orkin man for pest control .

          1. nocbsfan says

            Stop killing people we have to have someone to play the low life

      3. nocbsfan says

        As democrats are not winning elections, you just might be deporting Schumer sooner than he thinks

        1. Retired says

          That would be a blessing for the US and better yet if Soros goes with .

          1. nocbsfan says

            2018 is closer than the demo’s think, if it remains as is, demo’s are history.

          2. Retired says

            Demo Rats are putting the lid on their own coffin .

          3. nocbsfan says

            Yeah used to get a little angry when Democrat what write down right lies , but now I encourage it the more they talk more trouble they get into

    4. William L. Ramsburg says

      Exactly!!!

    5. SouthernPatriot says

      Democrats are always scheming and plotting. Their goal? To gain all power over the people, ensure their re-election and power grab. In a communist state, everyone is equally poor, except the ruling elite (e.g. Cuba).

      1. Mathew Molk says

        They haven’t been doing so well since our very unpopular President took office, He has done so much damage to the GOP that the NWO Marxists (AKA Democrats) have not won a single election this year despite spending orders more then their opponents and stuffing ballot boxes. President Trump better stop endorsing Republicans or the snowflake party won’t exist at all by the midterms.

      2. MAHB001 says

        Communist is as democrat does.

    6. treilly0414 says

      Brilliant, I agree.

    7. Brenda Sinclair says

      i agree that was muslim obama full intent with obama care and it failed as we americans are much smarted than a muslim, obama wants a muslim run america, with sharia law and is still fighting to over turn american government so he can be king of the new muslim nation once called america wake up america insist obama be indicted for treason https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cbd2eafd6a387f10601fc5b134297832a6388ff423eebd64461b328047f1b713.jpg

    8. mrpoohead says

      The lunatics have left the asylum! W Europe, Canada, NZ and Australia have better healthcare than the US – World Health Organisation. Fail USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. MAHB001 says

        The NWO healthcare organization has an agenda. To lie about America…

        Only fools would trust that crap…

        1. mrpoohead says

          You mean the WHO – yes, to improve healthcare around the world and deal with epidemics. Seems quite sensible.

          Two potential world orders – China and control by politicians, America and control by a few businesses. The EU and UN model at least offer democratically elected governance – a choice, with far better social disparity and mobility. The former two do not. China and America are the two scumbags, suspect the EU model will win – fingers crossed!

          Still a fool I see.

          1. MAHB001 says

            No I mean the NWO whom uses WHO as a useful idiot.

            Come to think about it, that is exactly like how you are being used.

            You lack vision and intelligence to think that there are only two potential world orders….

          2. mrpoohead says

            You really have missed your vocation, you could give Tolkien a run for his money.

            WHO is a body of UN – goal is to provide better world health care and deal with epidemics. It is not a Chinese or American body so we are safe.

            Idiot you maybe, useful you are not. How on earth can you turn the WHO into something scary?

            Two orders, the EU/UN is merely lots of places collaborating for world balance and co-operation. Come on entertain me – who else? Give us a laugh!

    9. greenlantern1 says

      A Republican politician, PRETENDING to be against communism, is a LIAR!!
      Was Senator Joseph McArthy a LIAR?
      Was Nixon?

      1. MAHB001 says

        Don’t think McArthy was pretending.

        Nixon lied. Not sure about pretending to be against communism, but he lied.

        Communism is a form of slavery not compatible with our Constitution.

        what is your point?

        1. greenlantern1 says

          McArthy was a pretender.
          He was temporarily stopped because Communists voted.
          He assured himself that they were a minority!
          Nixon PRETENDED that Helen Gahagan Douglas was a communist!

          1. MAHB001 says

            Ahh, you don’t like McArthy because you want Communism.

            Face it, Communism and the US Constitution do not mix. Communist must destroy the Constitution in order to instill a Communist state.

            Communism is slavery. You will lose this argument.

          2. greenlantern1 says

            Hitler made the Non-Aggression pact with Stalin!
            Unlike Trump; I made no deal with Putin!!

          3. MAHB001 says

            Like I can believe you. You silly and have no credibility.
            .

    10. AKLady says

      Why do you lie?

      These natons all have a form of natonal health care, none are Communist: India. Israel, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Denmark, Finland,, France, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Columbia, Australia, and New Zealand

      1. MAHB001 says

        All are closer to communism than America….

        Why do you lie?

        1. AKLady says

          Jesus and the Apostles were Communists.

          1. MAHB001 says

            liar

          2. AKLady says

            They say ignorance is bliss.
            You are, unquestionably, very blissful.

    11. rdells says

      You should consider pulling your head out of your ass

      1. MAHB001 says

        Looking in the mirror I see.

        Until you pull your head out of your ass, you will never see the wisdom in what I write.

    12. AKLady says

      Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult, assume, exaggerate …repeat ad nauseam.

      Tedious, boring, repetitive …enfant terrible

    13. Be says

      MAHB001: Exactly!

    14. glorybe2 says

      What nonsense! Much of what Lenin wrote was designed as propaganda and was poorly conceived. If you look about a bit communism has been shrinking and where it does exist has become much milder than it was back in 1919. Further as far as the people go the form of government is not related to the success of a society. In nations like Burma sometimes things are better after a coup when some nut starts running the nation. Often that has been some maverick general or rogue with some weird beliefs or alliances.

      1. MAHB001 says

        You spew nonsense. None of what you say has relevance. No communist state has been good for its slaves.

        Communism is simply a Government where the people work for the State. And when the people don’t agree with the State, they are exterminated.

        1. glorybe2 says

          You are dead wrong. An example is China. China has been through numerous forms of government and when communism took China it was brutal. However China is now far better off than at any time in its history as are the Chinese people. Vietnam is the same. Vietnam is a far better place to live than it has ever been in all of history. Communism can be a brutal and evil thing but it can also be far better than any governments in the past have ever been. There are even billionaire business people in China these days. You could even take a hard look at Cuba and you might change your views. Before communism Cuba was a great place for some people to live and work and a nightmare from hell for many other people which is exactly why they had a revolution. And as usual communism was brutal when it arrived. It then moderated and some Cubans are very happy with communism as their form of government. Meanwhile those that fled to the US usually look back with great rage towards the communists. Make fair judgments. Haiti is not communist and yet the misery in Haiti is huge. Compare the lives of modern Cubans with Haitians and you will have to admit that Cuba is far better off. The happiness or misery in a nation often is not related to the form of government at hand. The belief that the form of government is so vital is an artifact of basic human weakness. If the form of government related to the happiness of the people then we would have a certain degree of control of our lives. People do not like to confront the reality that we have close to zero control of anything at all.

          1. MAHB001 says

            NO you are dead wrong… You need to ask the 25-50 million dissidents and unneeded citizens just how better off they are.

            By pushing communism and glorifying the Chinese example like you do you are approving of those methods. Do you realize that the communists will have to exterminate 1/2 of the United States in order to impose a version of Communism on the free people of America?

            So you approve of killing 125 million plus people in order to get conformity? And you think that the average Cuba making 12k a year is happy? Especially when Castro died with 900 Million in his estate?

            As Venezuela crashes to the ground you attempt to justify Socialism/Communism.

            You are a cold hearted SOB. And you are apparently brainwashed to the point that you can not accept data that goes against your ideology, no matter how gruesome it is.

            People need to due unto others as they would have done to themselves , do their best, and trust in God.

          2. glorybe2 says

            Make valid comparisons if you seek truth. The US virtually exterminated native Americans and what we did to black people and other non whites cost millions their lives. With our history we need to take care in pointing a finger at other governments. Yes there were brutal days in Russia and China and Cuba. But before communism in those nations there was also great violence. How many people were slaughtered by emperors in China and Russia? As far as the remarks about god are concerned consider that the early Christian churches practiced an economy quite similar to communism. All people who were Christian were required to give 100% of their earnings to the church. The church then decided how much money each member needed and supplied it from that fund. In S.America today Christianity is often seen as communism by the wealthy an ministers, priests nuns and other church workers are often targeted for murder.

          3. MAHB001 says

            Make valid statements so we can seek the truth. Total BS that the US virtually exterminated native Americans and not a valid comparison. And what we did to black people was free them from slavery, BTW slavery was not created by the United States, but we spill our blood to remove it.

            That revisionist anti American history was created by the Communists that I was talking about in my previous post with KOI, This also proves out exactly what I was saying about KOI and now you being brainwashed.

            Do I have to bring out the old ideological subversion video again? I know I have presented it to you. You need to go back and watch it again.

          4. glorybe2 says

            The US destroyed millions of lives with slavery and bond servants. Early on slavery was as popular in the northern states as it was in the south. Native Americans were endlessly butchered. I believe it was general Sheridan that described the buffalo as the Indian’s refrigerator and ordered the elimination of the buffalo in order to starve the tribes to death or submission. Cute tricks like giving Indians blankets that were not cleaned after being used by small pox patients eliminated a lot of Indians as well. And then there was that Trail of Tears in which the Indians were forced to eat raw flour which actually killed many of them. Others died of starvation. All nations have dark and evil histories. The US was as rotten as any.

          5. MAHB001 says

            I do not buy into your HATE America revisionist version of history.

            It was written by some very evil people that did not have the United States best interests in mind…

            But then again, you already know that. It is you that chooses to believe the trash you believe. And to think that how the US treated the Indians was anything like what the Communists have done in Russia, Cuba, North Korea, China is just simply not making valid comparisons…

            Evil is the only explanation that I have for a person that would promote socialism/Communism over Capitalism… So evil you are.

          6. glorybe2 says

            Facts matter. The American Indians were and still are badly if not brutally treated in American history. To deny the slaughter of black people is absurd. None of this is revisionist history. It is the real history that can not be taught children in schools. Matter of fact the last slave legally held was an American Indian held in the Arizona territory until 1898. Even today we have slaves held in the US. Forced sex workers and farm labor are at times held as slaves. There is no reason to paint your ancestors with a golden paint brush. The US is similar to other nations all of which created horrors and slaughter in history. Simply read some history. Take a peek at the acquisition of Florida. The US traded Cuba for Florida and then turned around and drove Spain out of Cuba claiming a right to have no other major power in this hemisphere. Talk about a double dealing theft just look at Florida history. Then look at the vast land stolen from Mexico by force of arms. And to frost the cake look at treaties signed by the US government. The entire state of Mississippi was given as an Indian reservation until the sun no longer shined. Try to find treaties that the US honored and you will come up dry. You may also find that US citizens used the eastern coast line to deliberately wreck ships whether foreign or domestic in order to loot the wrecks. Anyone surviving the wrecks was quickly slaughtered so that no witnesses could be a problem at a later date. The usual tactic was to build a false light house to lure passing ships onto a shallow reef. This was common on the Florida coast as well as the coastline of states north of Florida. Entire towns participated in wrecking these ships. In the 20th century thing changed a bit and looters laid in wait for ships carrying alcohol or narcotics. There are probably looters still jumping drug boats in Florida this very day.

          7. MAHB001 says

            Facts matter.

            Should I go on? I think not. You are an evil person to think that anything in America’s past compares to the above. While ignoring all the good that we have done….

            The fact is, that while you have been brainwashed to run away from Capitalism by the nonsense you regurgitate, you are running directly towards communism….

        2. Kol says

          Interesting thing about “Communism”… … I’m U.S.-born American and I have extended family in Russia. I have lived there a few times for periods of a few months. Russia’s Communist Party today likes to brag that it is Russia’s “republican” political faction now, and they are very conservative and right wing etremist. And, lo and behold, they amount to just barely One Percent (1%) of the total vote in Russia’s national elections now == and unlike the U.S., 85% of Russians do vote!

          1. MAHB001 says

            That is interesting. You have been afforded a unique perspective.

            On one hand, your relatives in Russia grew up under Communism, rejected Communism, and are fighting to move towards a more Capitalistic society. Your relatives are no doubt hard working good people dealing with what life has thrown them. Just like all us serfs in America.

            I wonder how much of their once lost freedoms have come back. For instance, if they stood on the corner with a sign that says “Putin Lies” will they end up in a ditch with a bullet in their head?

            On your hand, you grew up in America under Capitalism, and have apparently fallen to the anti capitalism brainwashing put in place by of the old Communists that your relatives now reject.

            I think that if one looked at what your definitions of Communism, Right, conservative, etc and compared them to mine. We might find that when I say communism and communist, I mean the communists of old that suppressed your Russian relatives, and what you hear and interpret what I am saying is that I am against your relatives or the Russian people of today.

          2. Kol says

            My personal experience is that, by and large, the Russian people are very good people. They tend to be somewhat “liberal” or, at least, they had been doing so 12 or 14 years ago until Putin seemed to do a bit of a psychological 180 degree turnaround in quite a few areas of his thinking starting 3 or 4 years ago. Right now the situation over there is starting to get uncomfortable and Russians are a little naive about it, unfortunately. Time will tell. I’ve seen where the younger Rsusians are starting to protest and turn against Putin and what he has done with the Russian government and their democracy lately. That may get pretty scary. As to your question about standing on a corner with a sign sayhing, “Putin Lies!” … all I can say is that inwardly I shudder at the thought of what could happen. And seeing Donald Trump now getting involved with sneaking around in closed talks with Putin I’m very leery about what we’re going to see in the near future. It’s scary, and I worry about people I love and and feel close to. Fingers crossed!

          3. MAHB001 says

            I am no Russian expert, but it does not surprise me to have verified that the Russian people are good people. I believe that all people are good. Mankind has that in common. But mankind is also susceptible to EVIL.

            Could you please define what you mean by liberal?

            It is our Governments that we have to worry about. I would say exactly the same thing about America, the situation over here is starting to get uncomfortable and the American people, both Conservatives and Liberals are a little naive about it.

            0bama, Hillary, Bush, Clinton, had the same lust for power that is turning Putin into someone that needs to be feared. My belief is that Big Government is just another form of Communism, AND the left who now controls the Democrat party are blatant communists. I don’t think the democrat people are, but I also think the Democrat people are naive.

            Not to say that the Republican people aren’t. Crony Capitalism is also another form of Communism. Or in other words, Crony Capitalism is Big Government colluding with Big Businesses to scratch each others backs.

            Do you think that Big Government is just another form of Communism?

          4. Kol says

            No, I do not think that Big Government is just another form of Communism; however, at the same time, there are lots of elements in Big Government that can certainly lean toward the old Soviet-style “communism”…

            https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/proud-liberal.jpg

          5. MAHB001 says

            So without looking it up, liberal to me means a person that wants individual liberties and freedoms.

            At any rate, I do not see how a liberal by either definition would want to live under communism.

            I believe that Big Government is just another form of Communism. Communism being a state where the people work for the State, and the State provides back to the people. I also believe that people unless forced to do so, will not work for the State, and if left alone, would be more liberal in nature. that is free to pursue their own individual desires..

            I equate the degree of taxation with the degree of slavery to the Government. So if you pay 30% of your wages to taxes, you are a 30% slave to the Government. This seems obvious to me.

            What is your definition of a conservative? You can be insulting if you feel the need.
            .

          6. MAHB001 says

            And out comes the intolerance and hatred. Something that I now associate with you, and in turn associate with liberals… Shame on you, you are failing as a liberal.

            Liberals are not the ONLY group that worked hard for those things…. Conservatives and Republicans have sacrificed their lives….

      What politician is promising free healthcare…which one???

      Watch no answer…

      1. MAHB001 says

        If you can not connect the dots to what I meant it is a greater sign of your lack of intelligence.

        Let me help you.

        0bama says…. you will save trillions of dollars a year on 0bamacare…..

        What he really meant was..

        ‘Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the Socialized State.’

        “The goal of socialism is communism.”

          Those aren’t dot that rational people would connect and just because you connect them in your corrupt mind doesn’t everyone else show.

          >>>>0bama says…. you will save trillions of dollars a year on 0bamacare…

          Where is the proof he said that…I never heard him say it…

          How about a link to a vidieo???

          If I say something and you ask for proof I give it to you…

          When I ask you people for proof I get nothing but more blathering rich bullshit.

          So lets start with that one….

          How about a link to a vidieo???

          1. MAHB001 says

            Well said comrade. You toe the communist line well…

            So the Trillions of dollars was an exaggeration… and I did it on purpose…

            So the Trillions of dollars was an exaggeration…bullshit…fabricated…

            You are so stupid you can’t even recognize a joke when one is placed in front of you….

            I don’t see you joke…heathcare is not something to joke about…

            What I do see is a jerk puking the puke with no proof of said propaganda.!!

            Thats not a joke when people lives are at stake !!!

            Admit you were wrong… 0bama lied about saving $2500 per year per family on 0bamacare.

            Admit I am right. You are a monkey brain.

          10. AntiGOP says

            Not one was after he was in office…

            And the fact is…many save more then that per year…I have people save 5 times that which is slightly above average.
            Depends on your income.

            So how is it a lie???

            JFYI Obamacare is nothing more then Romneycare tweaked for national…

            Remember Romney…lmao

            Monkey puss, you must admit that 0bama has lied. I have shown you the lies.

      Interesting that you admire Lenin so greatly..
      America is the only modern, industrialized nation that lets people died –
      because they cannot afford to buy health care.

          Everyday, someone dies as a result of undiagnosed and untreated diabetes.
          Diabetes kills 3.4 million people every year.
          Undiagnosed and untreated hypertension is another major killer.

          1. MAHB001 says

            People die of diabetes ALL OVER THE WORLD…..

            TokyoAK you know to insinuate that the only place they die is in America is propaganda don’t you?

            With extended family in Russia and having lived there with some of them several times for long periods I’ve seen Russia’s socialism at work. EVERY Russian citizen is provided with government-sponsored healthcare, so that unlike the U.S. Russia does not have millons of people who cannot afford adequate healthcare or who hve no healthcare available to them at all. And if you are a foreign natonal visiting Russia you are even entitled to free emergency medical care — I’ve, in fact, experienced that myself with a serious slip & fall injury during one of my stays there.

          3. MAHB001 says

            The Russian people paid a huge price in lives of their citizens for first succumbing to Socialism and then falling into Communism… Those that opposed died the communist regimes died…

            I find it very interesting that your comments support many of my assertions. While Russia seems to be fighting their way back to Capitalism, here in America we seem to be rejecting Capitalism and falling towards communism.

            Here is my definition of Socialism and Communism. You will find them consistent with my writings.

            Communism – Marxist- Leninist system.
            the Marxist-Leninist version of a classless society in which capitalism is overthrown by a working-class revolution that gives ownership and control of wealth and property to the state.
            Socialism – Political system of communal ownership
            a political theory or system in which the means of production and distribution are controlled by the people and operated according to equity and fairness rather than market principles

            Capitalism – Free-Market System
            an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods, characterized by a free competitive market and motivation by profit

            Crony Capitalism
            the flow of wealth to a small group of people who are already wealthy and well connected

            Fascism-
            Dictatorial movement
            any movement, ideology, or attitude that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition, and extreme nationalism

  3. Justin Seine says

    Why should people who don’t smoke, drink in moderation, eat right, excercise, and sleep properly be expect to pay for the healthcare for people who do just the opposite? Why are so many people in this country who are on food stamps morbidly obese? Because they don’t get enought to eat or because the government assistance programs let them buy whatever they want with their EBT, SNAP and Foodstamps?

    The left wants these people totally unhealthy and incapable of doing anything but voting. If they can’t get out of a chair to get to a voting site they will gladly help them with their absentee ballots or send a special van to take them there.

    In order to win, the leftist demonic-rats need an army of taxpayer funded losers and a media that will put out whatever hogwash and bunkum necessary to try to convince everyone else. We are witnessing the latter of these playing out right now.

    They don’t have valid intellectual arguments to engage in so they resort to what are essentially bribes and chicanery. The dollars used for the bribes are unwittingly paid by the taxpayer and the chicanery is aimed by the MSM at what is coming out of our leftist educational system.

    Losers and suckers – the demonic-ratic base.

      What is the best that could happen instead ??

      1. Shawn Sapp says

        We are being poisoned every time we eat now. Thanks to big agri and the govt. Big pharma killing us all off too. Monsanto owns the poisonef food and the poison they are using for herbicide. The FDA is owned by big agri. That is who pays FDA salary, not the govt. Our govt is so corrupt now that we may never get it back.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          I was at the store yesterday. They had “organic” green peppers next to real ones. The organic ones were deformed and looked like something that was pulled out of a dumpster. The real ones looked like perfectly formed green peppers. – I bought the real ones. – I never ate “Healthy” and avoid doctors like the plague. I have never been hospitalized for an illness – I’m 70 years old.

      2. Grassroots says

        In your opinion, those lazy out-of-shape citizens shouldn’t be allowed health care coverage at all? Or at least until they clean up their act?

        My, what a loving compassionate human being you are. “Let em eat cake,” eh.

        1. 1555 says

          I pay out of pocket for my own care.

          1. Grassroots says

            Well, good for you that you have sufficient income to do so.

          2. 1555 says

            Well, dear grassroots, I am merely good at math. By the time I would pay premiums, then the GIGANTIC deductibles – I can pay the doctors by check, good as cash to them. I save big. Doing my best to keep doing the things that keep one healthy I get NO flu, NO colds, etc. Eating right, buying in bulk , but good food, staying out of fast food chains – save big.
            Today I thought – let’s buy an avocado sandwich some people were eating. Instead I purchased some good bread, and an avocado and have 4 sandwiches plus worth of food. I know lot of folks say they cannot afford to not eat at McDonalds, and Burger King. Yet buying fresh, planning a few days ahead for brownbagging ones own food for work, just those few days gets people to have more energy to start THINKING. It takes not sitting on ones bum, and not watching the tube for hours, but doing stuff with family. Stuff that does not cost anything ! Going for a little walk around the neighborhood, checking out how the flowers are doing now in summer.

      3. Mathew Molk says

        So you are for big brother telling you how much salt you can put on you chew burger that tastes like ground rubber bands and how big of a Slurpy you can buy, huh?

        This is not the country for you, I suggest you move elsewhere. –

        1. 1555 says

          Mathew I think you mistakenly read my post as trying to tell someone to put salt on whatever. I am not telling THEM anything. I merely object to being forcibly taxed to pay for someone else’s healthcare. I pay for my own.
          Out of pocket. Perhaps you plan to move elsewhere ? Not sure.

        2. 1555 says

          I just called my Senator’s office and the aid there agreed that the people I know not taking care of themselves at all, waiting to get a new $ 300,000 liver transplant – WHY
          should I co-pay for that ? I don’t even use the system as they misdiagnosed me 5x.
          I do my own thing, yet I am being FINED for getting them a new liver.
          Looks like we are on the same page. Get the big brother out of the picture !

        3. 1555 says

          I am not the big brother telling people how much salt to put on their burger. I am however the person who says, eat your burger, and don’t ask me to pay your medical bills after it causes the liver failure.
          Remember movie “Supersize me” ? Doctor of the test subject was shocked that eating at the golden arches 3x day caused the subject to be near liver failure in 14 days. Doc wanted his to stop the project !
          So I merely object having to be taxed to pay for those who f… up their health by their life style. I don’t ask them to pay my bills.

    4. KDC says

      Why? Because that’s how socialism works. That’s why they love it so much. The good pay for the bad.

    5. Mathew Molk says

      I quit smoking some time ago, but for my entire life I eat real food, (Not tasteless yuppie chew meat type stuff), I have always drank as much beer and whiskey as I want too, and the only exercise I have done since I got out of the Army is when busted my ass working 16 hour days in the trades.

      The only time I was in the hospital was to get patched up from getting hurt on the job and that was workman’s comp insurance not paid for by the government. – Today I take pills for high blood pressure that are paid for by the Medicare insurance that I paid into since 1966 when it first started. I was 19, and since they were never too shy to take it out of my paycheck, I’m not shy about having them pay for my pills. Point is now I’m 70. – “Eating healthy and living like a pencil neck doesn’t have a damn thing to do with someone else paying my medical costs. (BTW, I have buried a number of friends and relatives that lived the “healthy life” )

    2. Grassroots says

      Oh, come on. Democrats aren’t the enemy; neither are the republicans. Of course there will be dissent against one or both parties. Differences of opinion, outlook, political action, etc., are necessary if democracy is to continue.

      1. Alan says

        We are a Constitutional Republic … NOT a Democracy! The words Democracy, Democratic, and Democrat are not in the U.S. Constitution. See Article IV, Section 4:

        “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

        1. Mathew Molk says

          Well then if we are a “REPUBLIC” and not a DEMOCRACY then the DEMOCRATIC party should be outlawed and only REPUBLICANS allowed to live here….How’s that for meaningless semantics.?

          Here it is
          We won, The NWO Marxists (Democrat) party lost. If they can’t get over it and work with us then they actually can get out.

          MAGA Love it or leave it.

          1. Alan says

            Since the under 30 crowd that attended our Public Schools have not been taught accurate U.S. history; the “Civil War” for example … nor the relationship between “Citizen” and “Government”; they are clueless of their plight.

            The KKK was birthed within the Democrat Party. During AND after the end of the Civil War; Republicans authored numerous legislation between the early 1850’s through the 1960’s in the goal to eventually achieve parity for the Blacks relative to the Whites … ALL of which were voted against by the Democrat Party throughout those years.

            Just look at the fiscal MESS and crime rates in the majority of large cities throughout the U.S. whom are controlled my Democrats.

            Unfortunately … for many Blacks … they simply transferred from the “Southern Plantation” to the “Government Plantation”. If they truly understood their place in the areas of Democratically controlled society … they would all become Conservatives and Vote Republican!

        2. Grassroots says

          Semantics, dear. Common usage.

          1. Alan says

            Point accepted … dear …

    3. Mathew Molk says

      If you check the results the run off elections that is exactly what we are doing. They outspent us by orders and wwe are 5 for 5. – Even the guy that knocked the “reporter” on his ass won.

      We Won, They Lost, Again.

      MAGA!

      1. pappy450 says

        Agreed, BUT we must NOT let our “guard” down and keep on voting the SCUM OUT.
        Get everyone you know to get to the voting booths and and if it is even one “race” at a time to vote against scumocrats then, YES we WILL MAGA!

  6. Timothy Shaw says

    It is time we put the Democrats on notice get their act together and work for the good of the people not their self or this will be their last term in office. We the people must take control of the future for our children and our grand children.

    1. KDC says

      I wish it were that simple, but those weasels will never do anything good.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      Just vote every NWO Marxist (AKA Democrat) out PERIOD. But voting out the RINOs is even more important.

  7. SG says

    No one can say that demoncrats didn’t do things behind closed doors because they did, it was all done without letting the public in on their schemes. Remember it was pelosi that said “we have to pas it so we can read it!” How stupid of a remark is that?? They all know you read FIRST then vote on something and think the public won’t catch that. That’s a demoncrat for you, and anybody that is a demoncrat is more for subversion than freedom.

  8. Cindy Nobinger says

    Haven’t the democrats realized we don’t want their input we don’t even want them in the government or the country

    1. KDC says

      You said it! I wish they’d disappear.

    2. Grassroots says

      Well, then, perhaps you’d prefer a dictatorship instead? The two-party system is another form of checks and balances in the democratic process. We citizens would be underserved politically if the repubs or the demos were made to go away. America was built on ensuring freedoms for all, not quashing a political party because you personally don’t agree with its rhetoric.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        We have LOTS of Libertarians and Independents. We do not want or need any NWO Marxists which is what is the Democratic party has become. There are no more Democrats.

        Peaceful co-existence with the NWO Marxists is like peaceful co-existence with the moslems(sic)

        And no where in the constitution does it say we need ANY parties.

        1. Grassroots says

          Sure, let’s have no parties. I’m sure that will work.

          You are seriously wrong when you insist all Demos are Marxist. Are you lame-brained or what? Surely you understand that while there may be a few Demos who appreciate Marxism, the entire population of Demos are not Marxists. Just like the entire population of Repubs are not assholes, although there are quite a few.

          I am not a Marxist. I am an old-fashioned Demo. I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and our justice system. Of course there are things that go wrong in government, just like everywhere else. Things that don’t work, that are underfunded, that are marred by the bad eggs of the world, et al.

          I’m having an okay life. How about you? I have enough money to keep a house over my head buy food

    The Democrats who say they are on the side of the average person would rather see no healthcare plan at all than the Republicans plan. Meanwhile Obamacare is dead but it doesn’t matter to them. It was meant to fail. They thought that Clinton would win the election and Obamacare would morph into a single payer system.
    If that would have happened it would have been the last nail in our bankrupt federal government. The Communists would have won.
    God is watching out for us, the proof is that every once in awhile when America is on her knees, He sends a savior. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and now Donald Trump.

    1. Norman says

      Yes Gary,YES!!

    2. Grassroots says

      DT as savior? Not hardly. He’s a laughingstock in nations around the world and to the majority of Americans who voted against him.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        First, You are full of shit., but I do agree a minority of those that voted against him are now for him. – He is such a laughing stock that in the runoff elections the candidates he endorsed are 5 for 5. – Laugh at that, snowflake.

        1. Grassroots says

          It’s summer, Matt. No snowflakes in summer.

          45’s approval rating with the populace is the worst for any president in generations. And that’s a fact. It’s also a fact that the other leaders of the free world think he is an idiot and dangerously stupid. I think he’s an idiot and dangerously stupid too. Because he is.

    3. Mathew Molk says

      But remember, God helps those that help themselves and it’s going to be a long war.

      God bless you anyway, and God bless President Trump and the USA

      MAGA! Love it or get out.

    “narrative that Republicans are proceeding with the bill in a secretive, closed-door fashion that prevents the public from knowing what’s going into the law before it comes up for a vote”… Well, they better get it right, that’s all I’ve got to say. What’s with doing things behind closed doors and in secret? Pres.Trump better not let those “political weasels”, like Ryan, & McConnell, prevent him from being open and straightforward with the people.

  12. cpwill63 says

    It time for someone to go after Schumer and put into his place because he is evil SOB. I would like to see him lose the next election he to old and hateful.

  13. Rita says

    Dims sure have short (or maybe convenient) memories. I remember when socialist health insurance (cause it was all about taxes and insurance more than health care) was being debated–and the CLOSED DOOR that prevented ANY Republican from entering. As a matter of fact, I remember watching Neil Cavuto on Fox Business who had a running joke going where once a day on his show he showed the closed door. It went on for a looooong time.

    WHY CAN’T THE DIMOCRATS PULL THEIR HEADS OUT OF THEIR ASS AND WORK FOR THE GOOD OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT US, JUST POWER,

    1. just me says

      Where were the ReBUTT LICAN last 8 years. Wasting tax payer money stopping a black man from trying to fix things. Obama care,, Instead of making it better they to scrap it and sneak in there plan. It better be a better idea. The only reason I see is they don’t like a black mans name on it. Because they really could fix it and save a lot of tax payers money.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        What black man? The only black guy I know of that had anything good to do with heath care is Dr. Ben Carson. – Obomacare is named after a half honky who was only a small part black. I never heard of a healthcare system named after a black man.

  15. JFCSuperStar1 says

    What country does Amy Klobuchar work for? Is she for real. Ask Schumer about his connections with Turkey. Mr perfect with his glasses falling off his face. Both of these law makers need to go into the woods with Hillary never to be heard from again.

  16. John D says

    Screw The Dems. They are lying bastards.

  17. William L. Ramsburg says

    The democrat’s never stopped working AGAINST THE POTUS!!!!!

    The liberal dem bloodsuckers are the only known parasite that, feeds on it’s own species.It is time for us to protect ourselves.

    1. Chi Sam says

      Its, stupid. The common word it’s is a contraction of the words it and is.

      One would expect decades of reading to have had a stronger impact on your knowledge base.

      1. jerry.rebar says

        Okay, on the other hand we have no expectations at all, of the liberal dem bloodsucking parasites.
        Think of your family low life, kill yourself.

      2. Mathew Molk says

        It’s stupid to make an issue of a contraction when we have forign invaders on US soil to fight.

        Go back to your safe zone and play with the crayons. Enjoy it while you can. We are breaking ground for new ROTC building on the site of your safe zone.

        1. Chi Sam says

          Forign isn’t a word. You’re very dumb, you molk.

        2. Chi Sam says

          Why does your brain believe that ‘forign’ is a word? Have you damaged it by abusing drugs or alcohol?

  19. James Maxwell says

    “Doing this behind closed doors is actually not what we did,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn).
    Sounds familiar but it was reported that they passed it in the dead of night, on a weekend when
    everyone had gone home and there were NO Republicans present. (Surprisingly even John
    McCain was not invited either). They crammed it thru against the will of the American
    People and from day one it has been a dismal and miserable failure not only for the American
    Citizens but for those businesses who thought they were going to get rich off of the TAX
    Payers by corrupting an charging excessive prices.

    1. Grassroots says

      Miserable failure? Not for the millions of Americans who got health care coverage for the first time. Unfortunately, they may be included in the 24 million who will not be covered under Trumpcare, not to mention everyone who has a pre-existing condition (like rape, birth defects, bad heart, etc.)

      So then we’ll be going back to the times when the uninsured use the Emergency Room for their primary care. Taxpayers foot that bill, you know, which is a heck of a lot more expensive than coverage premiums.

      1. James Maxwell says

        If you think that the usage of Emergency Rooms for treatment has gone down then
        you are not paying attention to the facts as reported by various Medical groups.
        Cost for patients has risen, usage of the Emergency Rooms has risen and the
        number of uninsured has also risen as cost have skyrocketed. Why do you think that
        the Insurance companies are fleeing it like the Plague. The only reason that
        Obama care was passed in the first place was so they could push for a “SINGLE
        PAYER” system controlled completely by the Government. That was the goal
        Obama and the Democrat Socialist were going for. He also made that in a
        statement which was captured on a U Tube video. It was a corrupt and failed
        system designed to implode on itself so they could proceed to the SINGLE
        PAYER system. If Hildabeast had gotten into office they would have succeed
        and we would be in even worse shape as rationed health care like in Venezuela
        and Europe and Canada would be in place. Before those who were uninsured
        were able to get treatment in the ER’s but a large number we the Criminal Invaders
        from other countries. Go to an ER after 8PM and you will see them coming in
        for ever ailment under the sun, not emergencies. There are lots of homeless
        and other who are to broke to afford the excessive premiums also visiting the
        ER’s for numerous problem that are not emergencies.

        1. Grassroots says

          After 8 pm, sure, because the clinics aren’t open then, genius. Every single friend and acquaintance I have talked to who has ACA coverage is thrilled to be covered at all. Before they couldn’t even get insurance.

          A single payer system would get rid of the profit motive for insurance companies. The larger the risk pool, the better the coverage, because young folks don’t get sick as often as children and seniors so won’t use as much coverage.

          It balances out.

          1. James Maxwell says

            You have to be a Snowflake and have no knowledge about ER’s,
            they are a 24/7/365 operations and are there for emergencies.
            A single payer system controlled by the government is the worse nightmare
            possible as you would have politicos in control of your health and if some
            mindless beauracrats has to determine if you are sick before you can be
            treated then you are in a serious trouble. I have seen people wait for up to
            six months for an operation when I was in England and a couple of friends
            lost their lives before the sgy was to be done. It would be like when the
            government took over a Whore House in Las Vegas and by the time it
            went bankrupt and had to close they had put all of the “ladies” on the
            government payroll, retirement benefits and still could not turn a profit.

          2. Grassroots says

            What a load of crap. Single payer systems around the world have better healthcare track records than the U.S. by far. Mortality rates here for mothers in the birthing process is one of the highest of all the civilized countries. We don’t rate number one in healthcare anymore. And with the repubs new restrictive healthcare plan, it’s only going too get worse.
