Message 1304737 - Posted: 11 Nov 2012, 1:31:33 UTC - in response to Message 1304661.

Last statement.

I voted, did the single, most important thing I could do.

Obama bought to offset my vote with my own tax dollars by catering to those I like the least.

Witless welfare recipients that just want it to go on foreeeeeeeeeeeeever.
And less than amusingly entitled illegal immigrants.

Don't give me any crap about this.........
They are the only contingents that pushed Obama over the edge.

And before you give me any ####, just remember that about 48% of the US voters agree with ME, you damned, ignorant, snotty liberals.

So, 50% of the US is on welfare now????? Wow I never knew.

Lead singer of the band "Against me" wants a sex change because he's a lesbian trapped in man's body...

Makes perfect sense to me. Who are we to deny him his rights to be an anatomically correct lesbian?

If the government doesn't support this through Obamacare, the government is not living up to its new responsibility.

I actually think it might be fun to have tits at the rest of the taxpayer's expense.

I got a bit of a pair of manboobs going on now, could I apply for enhancement?


Just claim it as a "right" and you're sure to get it through Obamacare.

(I would advise against this though because I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be happy with the results.)



Your view (I mean Rush's view) of "Obamacare" is so skewed and misinformed I don't even know where to start.

49 percent of Americans live in households that receive some form of government benefits...based on data from 2010...A significant proportion of government assistance comes in the form of Social Security and Medicare...“means-tested” programs, such as food stamps, Medicaid, and housing assistance, around 35 percent

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/explainer/2012/09/romney_says_47_percent_of_americans_receive_direct_government_assistance_is_that_true_.html

So, only about 1/3. The American people voted to bump that up Tuesday night.

Oh dear, so Social security and medicare is included in your statistic, and you think that counts as an entitlement program????

Yeah, right, you didn't have a clue.

Probably getting close to the Obama vote totals.......why would they bite the hand?


I'll reiterate. The biggest chunk of your so called "entitlement people", are receiving Social Security and Medicare...

If you want these things cut hey more power to you. You are much closer to retiring than me, I will have time to explore alternatives, will you or all the nations other retirees?

I cannot believe you right wing nuts group retirees collecting their SS, in with welfare recipients. More uninformed idiocy.

Yes, apparently ones you are not on board with, even though (I hope) you've been paying into it your whole life.

They are entitlements as long as they are funded with Ponzi Scheme level funding. Now if an actuary calculated the funding level year to year and the contributions for a year matched that calculation, then you could call them a pension and insurance, until then, Ponzi Scheme entitlement is the correct label.

The way our politicicans have abused it, I can agree. If I understand the way it was setup, That money we (volunteerd) was never meant to be put used or put in the general fund. It was for social security only. Just like our SS number was never to be used as ID.
Ive seen some people use the term that Americans dont have to carry a national ID . Well an SS card is that ID.

I ask any politician perusing this forum. If you can fund stupid wars to the tune of trillions of dollars why cant you make SS solvent? Why cant you just pay back all the money you have ripped out of SS over the years to pay for stupid wars? Just give SS one trillion dollars and lets see hpw that works out over the next 50 years.

And as far as an entitlement, Gary as long as I have to pay into the ponzi scheme its my damn right to get back what I stinking put in.

It's not intended to. The college, being based on the number of congresspeople (both Representatives and Senators) a state sends to DC is deliberately skewed to favor low population states. As the President is executive leader of a federation of states, it's the states that decide who will hold the office.

Well that is one of your problems as I see it. Far too many State Governors think they are God Almighty and run their State like a private fiefdom or dictatorship. Whatever happened to democracy?



Bobby is correct on this one. And it is not the State Governors that have the power to appoint the Presidential electors. That power is given to the State legislatures ONLY. And as the US Constitution requires the several State governments to be Republics, just as it does the Federal government, where is the problem? The People, after all, voted for 'their' members of their state's legislature, just as they vote for 'their' members of Congress. Where is the problem?

You mean the same effect as your various screeds here? <smile>.

+ another 41 = positive 42.
