***** Donald Trump is 'Putney Swope' !!!!!!!
***** Anyone that knows me knows that I am a raging Socialist Liberal
Democrat (with a large side of Anarchist!) and probably (never say never!)
would not vote for a republican president, no matter who would be available
BUT..... What is wrong with those republicans?? Donald Trump, Ben
Carson....? Are they out of their minds?! At least put up a professional
politician. Yes, I know it seems dirty words in their world but that
again demonstrates their ignorance of how civilization works. Civilization
is a system (are systems) designed to allow people(s) who do not get along
to coexist in the same space with a minimum of violence. Without
civilization, the human world would surely destroy itself.
APPLAUD the FCC for Finally doing what should have been done long ago! The
internet IS a public utility and should be treated as such.
2/28/2015 *****I Fiscal Cliff?? How can I get up there in the first place??? The higher you are, the further you fall!! Enjoy!!!
2/28/2015 *****I 'Tis Time to REPEAL the 2nd Amendment!!!!!! Nobody needs the RIGHT to have a gun. How about let's ENFORCE the RIGHT to VOTE!!
2/28/2015 *****I What is this about pieces of identification (for voting purposes) needing an expiration date? Do people have expiration dates? I believe I shall remain the same person regardless of an expiration date on a piece of plastic or paper....!!!
11/20/2014 ***** When I go to a store and at checkout am informed that I just saved $7.56 I just have to remind the checkout clerk (no, they are NOT customer service executives!) that indeed, I just SPENT $75! I could have saved the whole $75 by not coming in at all!
11/20/2014 ***** Regarding
certain anti-depression drug ads:
11/20/2014 ***** I am ABSOLUTELY for universal, single payer healthcare.
What I see as the main argument against such is the idea that bureaucrats would be making medical decisions. How indeed is that different from now?? Are not insurance companies large bureaucracies? Do not they decide what is proper and what is not, based upon their ideas of what is cost effective (and therefore, good for their investors)? This rationing has happened to me a few times.
We indeed DO have healthcare rationing now - different levels of coverage ranging from nothing, to luxurious. This usually based upon the income level of the person discussed. Is that not rationing (by income)?
The US healthcare system - the doctors, hospitals, etc. is probably the finest in the world - otherwise why would so many want to come here from many other countries for care?
It is the healthcare PAYMENT system that is abominable! Usually, those from other countries have the requisite money to pay for their fabulous service. Again - rationing by income.
If our government is good enough to field a first rate military, why can it not create a first rate healthcare system?
