Keep troops out of Ukraine

March 26, 2014

Ukrainian officials recently said their country’s military will hold joint training exercises with U.S. and British armed forces. That would be an invitation to disaster....

Fedup there is a button called "search" on the interwebs.. Reagan continually cut mental health funding in the 80's .. Bush jr did try to push insurance agencies to treat mental health issues as physical ones but guess who voted that down?? Humm? Oh and the greatest provider by far is medicare and who has voted to repeal the ACA 50 times?? Oh and what states are blocking expansion?? Humm?? I can't make you understand so go cyber stalk somebody else turd..

(cont.) However since Ins co's are one of the most powerful lobbies in DC, lining the pockets of both political parties, it's uncertain how far our esteemed legislators will go..

fedup...I'm on the cbo site quite often. Their projection of 51 million actually represents a reduction down from 31 million. They also point out that especially in the field of health insurance, their projections are highly uncertain. Even your own Chris Wallace said the other day it's too early to make projections on ACA. It's easy for all sides to cherry pick #'s from CBO. The one huge intangible is potential savings from preventive care. I think it's totally realistic to judge ACA as a failure after such a short time. If you don't think so, no big deal, simply a difference of opinion. I'm well aware of programs being botched at the fed and state levels. One need look no farther than education in NY! However in some instances they are necessary. Imagine the chaos if there was no FAA or FDA! Cracking down on insurance co's gouging the public is long overdue. (continued)

GVILLE70: Any more total lies you care to post? Or will you stand up and provide proof of your fabrication about the mentally ill? At least Laker88 was big enough to admit he fabricated a quote about me. How about you? I won't hold my breath.

LAKER88: Absolutely not. Anything the government runs is screwed up. Why would this be any different. I prefer free market based solutions where the government stays out. And Obamacare doesn't fix the uninsured issue. It just changes who is uninsured. CBO says that by 2023 there will be 31 million uninsured. Just like there is today. And when has the government fixed anything? Their fix will only make it worse. Throw it out and start over. Why are you so sure that the government is the answer? What in the past has given you confidence that they can run anything correctly? Look at the past history.

And speaking of Fedup's "mindless dribble", heerrreee's tot. So are you backtracking fedup and are now going to remove Obamacare from the list of "failures" and instead admit there are advantages over our old system(or lack of) and we should amend it rather than scrap the entire thing, along with the aforementioned benefits in my earlier post.

The FBI raided Democratic New York Assemblyman William Scarborough’s Albany office Wednesday morning and also took papers from his office in Jamaica, Queens. The feds confronted him at 5:45 a.m. in a hotel room, where they seized his smartphone. FBI investigators asked Scarborough about per diem reimbursements received by state lawmakers. Democratic California state Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday for wire fraud and conspiracy to deal firearms as part of an FBI sweep in Sacramento and the Bay Area. The gun-control proponent allegedly conspired to facilitate an undercover agent’s purchase of illegal firearms, which would be imported through a port in Newark, N.J,

Three Democratic lawmakers were either arrested or had their office raided Wednesday by the FBI.

Two of the Democrats, including Charlotte, N.C. Mayor Patrick Cannon, were charged in connection with FBI stings that caught them allegedly taking bribes from undercover agents. Coupled with an FBI raid that led to the resignation of a prominent Democratic lawmaker in Rhode Island this past weekend, four Democrats have recently come under the FBI’s radar

fedup...In one of your earlier predictable rants about Obama, possibly under another topic, you made a list of many Obama "failures" and asked people to address them. Among the "failures" was Obamacare. I will happily admit to misquoting you, if now you're implying that there ARE advantages, and we shouldn't pull the trigger on it, but instead try to amend it, rather than simply labeling it as a "failure" and repealing the entire law.

Once I see the post and the context that supposedly said that, I would be more than happy to defend myself (and I won't blame Obama, Kerry, Clinton or Biden).

Anna, I'm not sure what to make of this statement, 'Not all conservatives are Red necks, believe in right to life and are bigots'. Liberals are driven by emotions so they make accusations of that sort in order for you to respond with emotional denials. It really means nothing more to them than a tactic to put you on their playing field while they then continue to engage you in one non-sequitur after another with you on the defense. Now, I happen to enjoy that form of debate and one part of respectfully disagreeing, which I really do by the way because while I like people, I don't like what their ideology has allowed them to become, it helps to foster actual dialogue with the more reasonable. That's all.

Sorry BoB, You are using the age old extreme arguments that play on emotions and have been denied in both liberal and conservative courts. Fact is that life begins at birth, on your birthday, and although I personally am against late term abortions, until the fetus can stand alone outside the mother it is her call. You can call it immoral and if you believe also that having sex is immoral if it is beyond creating a baby, well that is your choice also. That’s what pro choice is. Now let's put all this nonsense to rest and annihilate those Middle Eastern, lower than whale dung infidels.

No Hill, I did not adopt, but on the other hand, I didn't murder my offspring either. Has anyone noticed that everybody who supports abortion is alive while 57 million of their offspring, with no voice to object are NOT? Well, I speak for them with no permission required. Equivocate to your hearts content if it makes you 'feel' good, but why do you care who initiated or approved this type of annihilation? Wrong is wrong no matter who's at fault but History shows liberals embrace the so-called Planned Parenthood more than anyone else. Would you also approve of waiting until the child was born THEN the mother is allowed to suffocate or slit the babies throat??? Would that be ok too since it accomplishes the same thing? No, in typical liberal fashion, let somebody else do the dirty work for you. Maybe you don't, but I hear the screams of the murdered unborn and am compelled to defend their right to live. That's called morality, not politics.

(continued) fedup...let me hear you defend your statement that Obamacare has NO advantages, and justify why the entire law should be repealed, before it's even given a chance. In the area of foreign policy, I specifically mentioned several areas where I backed foreign policy, ... Syria, Ukraine, and Afghan. And interesting if you don't see how "feeling good about voting for the first black president" could be construed as racist.

fedup... I guess you also missed the fact that health care costs under the old system, or lack of, doubled in less than 10 years. While critics are discussing the cost of Obamacare, they ignore the huge savings potential for preventive care... ie check ups and vaccinations, the costs of which have been substantially reduced under the new law...something that was long overdue. Under the old system, approx. 1 dollar out of 30 was used for preventive care!! Speaking of overdue, what about people who had the gall to have a pre-existing condition..no longer can they be refused. Also, cracking down on lifetime limits that insurance co's in the past decided they would magically "impose". After many decades of failing to revise our broken health care system, it is unrealistic to think a new system will be flawless/without issues. So address those issues without repealing the entire law and going back to square 1....which only amounts to political posturing at its worst. (continu

LAKER88: I missed the post where you defended OBAMAM's record other than you calling my statement racist and bigoted. You did say give Obamacare a chance. THAT is your defense of Obamacare? Let's hear you defend his record on any one of the specific areas I cited. Pick one and defend Obama without demonizing the other side and without using the words Bush, Cheney or Rummy. Defend this presidents specific actions not the actions of the past presidents.
