Wildcat:I would think that you and I , are same generation. Born in the 40's, 44 for me. Seen it all and paid attention to it. Sure don't like what Im seeing today.
This business of the "decider" has got to be stopped. Not a front runner is going to stop it. All of em need to be turned out, and a new slate posted. Only cure we have.
Tell the wife im sure glad she is doing better.
Just fed mine a ribeye and a bake. You think she ain't back to normal, hahahaha

Jimco,

Wife is having a 90% night, fed her Tortilla Soup and we split a Ginger Bread Cookie milk shake from Red Robin....uuuuuummmmm yum. Sounds like yours is doing great. I am 46, my sister served in Viet Nam I was in under Regean, USAF. I am a conservative, so I hate the current spending glut we have going on, but I see it getting only worse with the Dem congress. Why we don't have a line item veto or have a real ecconomist run the budget like I have to my business is beyond me. It is the power they derive from spending the gold. It will take more than I see on the horizon to have real reform, I don't think it takes a genius to realize that what we MUST have before we go bankrupt.

The media drives this country, Brovic's last post is an example of this. I would say they have a hold on about 50% of the US based on the last elections that were pretty much split down the middle. Its time to forget left/right, cons,libs, dems/pubs and start focusing on common sense.

No dought, that we need a total shake out. I do believe the next generation of congressmen and senators should have to be cerfified in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, as written by our founders.
Get rid of all the amendments and go back to basics. Seems like we have forgotten where we came from.
When we have a President that states, the Constitution is just a "GD Piece of Paper", I think we have a problem.
Plenty of room for impeachment for this guy. Master: As far as the media goes, they only tell you , what they want you to hear.
Examine who owns the major networks and cipher. ever wonder why Brittney is big news. I never figured it out, other then a distraction from the big picture.

We already have socialized heath care in this country. If you walk in to a hospital, you will get treatment. You will have to figure out how to pay it, but you will get treated. Even you have to file bankruptcy, in which you get to keep your house and a car. A college buddy of mine was hit on a motor cycle. Not only did he get the state to pay for it, but he got 50K to start a new business because he had a certain level of disability(one leg was a little shorter, so he could not work construction any more)

The reality is, one of the reasons heath insurance is so expensive, is because the insured are paying for the uninsured. My wife and I are self employed, we figure we have enough equity in our home to cover a large deductible, so we have catastrophic coverage. Its like $285.00 a month. That's pretty cheap. If you don't like the health care in the US, try Mexico, Iraq or Afghanistan. I 'v been to those places, and let me tell you, you don't want to go to those hospitals.

And if you think the government can do it better, look at the VA, Look at the DMV and the IRS. It never works, ever.

The answer? Work an extra ten hours a month and pay for it. Make sure you and your family are taken care of.

I know they tell us what we want to hear and the problem is half the people believe it. I know damn well this "news" comes from the top, it reminds me of high school when someone ran for class president. They went around saying less homework, longer lunch period, blah blah blah. It sounds good but isn't in our best interest.

What we need to realize is were all on the same side and need to stop this left right crap because now its all crap.

Dave, I agree with your entire post and can relate because I am self employed as well. We just started our health savings account and have a ridiculous high deductible but a low premium. We only have it for major things as we don't run in for every little thing and take care of our health so we have a lower chance of something happening.

Master,

The big problem is that people "think" they will get something for nothing. Even my brother said , wow, if I don't have to pay for health insurance I can use the money for something elese....NO DUH....it don't work that way. When people are told by the top canidates...hey I will give your kid $5000 bucks, hey I will give you FREE health care, hey I will pay for everyones college, hey I will tell ya how to live.....blah blah blah. Only problem is IT AIN"T HER MONEY....oh thats a little thing, thats right, she has been quoted that she thinks she should be able to just "Take the profits" of certain companies....isn't that what Yugo Chavez said in Venezuela? Isn't that what they call Facism.

I firmly believe that the only way to get control of this country back is term limits. The founding fathers never intended for politics to be a life long career.

Two terms, and your gone.

Dave,

I think it should be like jury duty....ya get a letter from the fed and you go "Hunny OH CRAP I'm a stinking Senator!". I am serous in one respect....just take a look at the number of Congressmen and Senators that are lawyers and you will see your problem.

Yea, Law school seems to be the price of entry. I don't know what to think any more. I voted for Randy Cunningham for years. Fighter pilot, must be a good guy right? Hummmmm

Left or Right, by the time they get to that level, they are crooked.

I think term limits would help to solve that. You go there, represent your constituents for 6 years, and then your gone. No perks, no pension. I would be willing to pay them a little more for the 6 years if it would attract a higher level of candidate, but when your out, your done.

Correct me if I am wrong, but they get a retirement pension after just one term?? some one told me that, is that right? at a time when most company's are eliminating pensions. I hope that's not true.

He called the VA, to get me admitted, sorry sport, be 2 weeks fore we can see him. And that was it. No way to get in, even though you are dying.
And with that experience, you still think the Government should run your health care?

Just look at the DMV.

brovic777
Just because other countries might have crappy universal health care, does not mean the United States has to have a crappy one too.
What makes you think this time it will be better? Are the rest of them just idiots?
If we all still together we can make our system a good one. We have free public education, why can't we have free public healthcare too but that works good.
You had public education right? Then you should know that it does not always work *well*.

Yes to term limits.

We didn't become the greatest nation on the planet for nothing. Have faith in the American people that we can do it better than other nations.

We built the greatest military to defend and kill, so why can't we built the greatest healthcare system also to save lives.

How about a plan, or even an idea and not just flag waving?

No, do you?
You are the one claiming that a national system is the answer; I don't think it is. It is up to you to defend your opinion. It is not up to me to defend an opinion I do not agree with.

The problem is that you refuse to see how those systems have problems...You want to claim that the US system is flawed, OK. But the other systems are ALSO flawed and have problems.

I fail to see how ANYONE thinks getting the government involved is a panacea.
