Made me think of this commercial...

"Hurt In A Car Wreck...Call Pete Higginbotham...!

Pete has 30 lawyers in his office. All are ready to file your case.

Tort Reform? Those lawyers will put a contract out on your a##.

Just wrote to rocky and the bird again. Begging them to oppose Obamacare and to rebuke him for requesting names of those who spread 'fishy' information.

Not that it ever does any good.
Strange times we live in....

Agree it is strange times.
But don't despair - I think your letters/emails does do good.

Have heard from a prominent politician that the best thing is to send a letter or fax with a very short "personal story" of how/why it will affect you or something similar (next best is a phone call).
Politician said they get so many emails that, just like us, we don't really pay attention to many of them.

Default The only plan that I could think about supporting

If Congress were to INCLUDE themselves and the PRESIDENT in it; maybe I could think about it just a little.

Do you realize how many students in college today thinking about becoming doctors will turn around 180 degrees on that idea? Maybe they are in it for the wrong reasons but they just don't want Hussein regulating their pay scales.

Change, change, everywhere there is change. Coming so fast and furious 90+% don't know what they are voting for except CHANGE.

I am not opposed to change but this election did not mean to do what Congress and our leader have done to us; in my humble opinion.

The really SAD part is we will re-elect 40% of them in two years (actually a little less).

Look at it with the 'glass 1/2 full:

Next year 40% of them will be replaced.

If we can nominate new ones, outside of the graft, we can make our own Hope and Change.

We all wanted Hope and Change, we just bought the wrong package this time, that's all.

Who would have thought Organized Crime would want the entire country?

In the late 1990's, I showed a bill to a black co-worker, and said these exact words : "This is how slavery will be created in this country."

The bill, using the ruse "we don't have enough qualified workers", allowed visa workers to be brought into the country, and the propaganda war began calling anyone in opposition, "protectionist", "xenophobe", etc. Worse, they weren't just bringing in visa workers to replace Americans -- they brought them into the country to train them and then take the jobs out of this country.

I knew I should've written his name down then, because to his credit, when this was happening, someone in either the NSA or CIA warned around 2002, that he could forsee where our national security systems were not only going to be manufactured, but programmed and maintained by foreign countries. I wanted to buy him a cup of coffee. It wasn't just that they were killing some industries in this country -- they were killing the incentive for people to pursue these careers.

It's common sense. And you are correct in your assessment.

Show me how many states where Wal-Mart is not the #1 employer, and I will show you a statement unto itself. So the medical profession should feel uneasy. It has to some degree remained unscathed in our orchestrated economic downturn, but someone is looking at their knees with an axe.

For the record, I liked Bush as much as I've liked Obama.

It was easy for people to blame Bush back then, because whole industries (jobs) were sucked out of this country as soon he took office. Didn't help with perception when he made his let them eat cake response either. However, it was the Congress before him during Clinton who had that signed that bill. And to this day, Congress is still singing, "There's not enough qualified workers."

Visa workers are legal workers. But add to that flanking problem, the Federal Government has allowed the breach of our borders by illegal aliens, to the tune of at least 1 million per year . . the equivalent of the standing army of China (or Iraq prior to Gulf War I). Remember that number when the Federal Government aims their guns at the citizens of this country, in weaponry and law, in threats, and talks about national security?

It took less than ten years to create a slave class of worker in this country, and if that word bothers you, call them "working poor". The wage base for many industries has been chopped off at its knees, purposely, that the growing mass of people today in this country are just trying to live, and on less than a living wage. That is not capitalism -- this is the redistribution of wealth and power into the 1%. And besides giving free health care to illegal aliens, that is exactly what the intent of this bill is.

Where did you all get the idea I want free handouts for everyone??? That isn't what I meant AT ALL. But NOBODY should be turned down because they have had cancer,diabetes,etc. My cousin in Ohio has terrible medical problems (partly genetic,partly having scarlet fever as a child which damaged her heart. Is it her fault she can't work 2-3 jobs? She works but doesn't have medical coverage,not some freeloader guzzling beer and sleeping all day! And I am against letting illegal aliens get healthcare here and citizens having to pay for it--. Maybe a miracle will happen and Democrats and Republicans will put their petty differences aside and compromise to get a better healthcare system,not socialism as many fear. But Congress act unselfishly??? Not likely!

I've got an idea...

Shut down all health insurance.. And limit malpractice payouts to costs + lost wages.

Prices for medical services would drop to realistic levels quickly as true free market economic forces took hold again. We could all save our money from health insurance premiums, employers could pay a much higher wage. Health insurance is a 'new' idea. It wasn't too long ago when doctors could actually come to a patients home and the patient could afford the visit.

It's Official:

Hairy Reed and Comrade Pelosi (cow fart) have the votes tabulated.

The Socialized Health Experiment will be voted on and become law as soon as our loyal congress returns.

What will keep them in office when the voters rush to the pollls?...an event, people...a panic event.

It might be necessary to 'not have the elections because of pandemic health reasons...or worse.

Let's see if that will happen. This collapse is staged and on course to happen.


What is in the wings and never talked about?
The Russians have brought their subs into New York Harbor for years...last week two were sitting in Chesapeake Bay.
Why were they there? They were practicing, of course.

I hope we have a few subs doing the same thing on their side of the map.

Default Thankfully (hopefully), we still have the Senate

I was listening to a talk show on radio Sunday with reporters from the Washington Post et al newspapers and their consensus was that the Senate did not have the votes to pass a public option so they were looking cooperatives in lieu of the public option.

They also emphasized that there is no Obama bill on the topic as he is allowing the Congress to come up with the plan. (my guess is this is a smart move on his part because he can point the finger away from himself)

My big question is, "What part of ONE TRILLION DOLLARS do these people not understand"? The top 5% of wage earners cannot support the country.
