The Republicans won the "I just don't agree with the whole Obamacare policy thing. I just don't agree with it" thing.
Plus Obamacare will take away people's guns!
And... and... and... you will be forced to eat collard greens instead of donuts for breakfast! And... something!
I don't know. I'm not a donutivore - haven't had one in 20 or 30 years. But I'm not into kale either. Potato chips.... that's another story.
It's not specifically donuts, just dessert. Chips don't tempt me. I am addicted to sugar. I never drink anything with sugar in it though. I like to eat my sugar! :)
Republicans oppose Obama because he is a black man. Never before has there been such total disrespect for our president. They can call it what they want but it's racism at it's worst. Romney put the same healthcare law into effect without so much as a whimper from anyone. When Mcconnell (senator from ky) made the statement that the republicans main goal should be to work against anything Obama suggested (words to that effect) I was ashamed to be from this state.
The numbers of hate groups have increased a thousand fold since these right wing, tea baggers have taken our government hostage. Those people are totally insane. Yeaterday they were saying it was Obama's idea to shut down the government. Can people really be this stupid and gullible. They act like they believe their own lies.
@k. hughes. I couldn't agree more. I've heard it said that President Obama is the Jackie Robinson of American presidential politics. I was talking to a moderate republican, and he said something to the effect that he was tired of the racist, ignorant, lunatic teabaggers running and ruining his party. We were having a discussion as to why, as a progressive, I thought Dwight Eisenhower was the last great Republican President, and Gerald Ford the last honorable one.
You state "They act like they believe their own lies." Unfortunately many, if not most of them, actually do. Talk to a member of the White Aryan Brotherhood. They believe what they're saying, in the same vein as the extremists believe their own lies.
And, what's really sad, is they believe they are smarter than the Italian voters of 1922 who brought Mussolini to power.
Opposition to universal health care is a long-held conservative value. Ronald Reagan thought that Medicare would be the end of freedom in America and many Republicans today agree that ACA will be a major imposition on people because of the individual mandate. However that mandate is necessary since it offsets the elimination of pre-existing conditions as a reason for turning down applicants for insurance. The insurance companies can afford to insure people who are already sick if they get a bunch of healthy individuals.
President Obama bears considerable responsibility for allowing the opposition to ACA a free hand to malign it for three years without bothering to explain it to the public. For reasons unknown, he simply remained quiet while a large and well-financed conspiracy against the act formed and made its case publicly. He seems to have learned from caving in during the last debt-ceiling/budget fight in 2011, but his credibility as someone who sticks to his word was badly damaged and now he has a hard time getting House Republicans to believe he won't cave again.
Sentient Biped, I loved this piece. You post the best links and videos. I find it hard to believe people think they're going to be implanted with a micro-chip.
k. hughes, thank you. I try to find interesting things to discuss. I'm pretty isolated, and the discussions keep me sort of sane.
People have been talking about implanting of microchips for a long time. It's the "Sign of the beast". Too many google hits to list them.
My dog has an RFID chip. Maybe I'm next.
My dog has a chip too SB. So does my Mom's cat, and my Daughter's cat. I do like that idea for pets, since the owner can be found if the pet is lost. Also, you can prove ownership if someone steals a pet. As for people, not such a good idea!
Also, k.hughes is right. You do find interesting things! Hugs to you.~ Mindy
