so many people complaining and attacking Ryan because he was trying to come up with an idea to fix a broken system. But yet nobody else(including our president) can come up with any better ideas other than to raise taxes and social security reductions on the few that have extra money. I support Ryan not because of his ideas but because he is brave enough to stand up and say the system must be fixed and people are not going to like the steps that will need to be taken to fix it. For the rest of you I guess the same old routine is ok. Why wait to have our children address a problem that could be fixed now or in the near future. I am curious, what does the rest of society do when they cannot afford to spend, personally I stop until there is more money. To the government they just keep spending and playing golf like nothing is wrong.
Sequoia there are 2 things wrong with the above statement. 1) the people did not vote overwhelmingly for Obama care. The senate and the house voted by party lines( after several behind closed door crooked deals) for Obama care. 2) The reason I said the lawyers should hash it out is because they wanted a mandate they cannot have. even the courts agreed on that. it just happened they won by a different avenue.
In this case you actually have several examples of people telling me I cannot pray out loud in public. Most of the examples fall under atheists going to court to stop prayer in schools, public meetings, public property. I am curious what I am making up. If Atheists don't want to pray then don't, but don't sop me from praying, even out loud.
cin I have a couple very close friends that are gay. The thing is they don't push their belief at me and I don't push my thoughts on them.Obama himself, along with you, implied that gays should be allowed into the BSA and they should be aloud to " educate" the boys to their life styles. Again educating those things should be left to the family, not a stranger. There is enough indoctrination going on in this day and age. Political correctness needs to stop and people should be aloud to have their own thoughts and beliefs without being attacked for them.
He does not like the stance because the BSA is big in all around education our children. I'm sorry but that kind of education is best left to the family and the parents, not some stranger. When it is taught by a stranger or the school it is call indoctrination. When it is taught by the parents and family it is called education. That kind of "education" has no business in a kids group.
Well according to the article the ACLU lawyer couldn't give an example of how it would adversely affect inmates but that if they say it adversely affects inmates it adversely affects the first amendment. So basically he is doing this because he wants to shoot the entire amendment down. Seems funny that a lawyer wants to use the court system to cancel out something that the people voted for by an overwhelming majority. If you have a problem with prayer in public then don't do it, but don't tell me that the only place I can pray is in my home. maybe I want to pray in the middle of the capital, or at the beginning of an important meeting.
Sequoia I have to agree with you-most inmates are animals. they act like a lion, or a pack of wolves. They prey on their victims and attack when they least expect it. They give no consideration for the people or the families that they hurt(just like a pack of animals). As many of the liberals have stated on this site-people care about and help each other, animals don't. I wonder what inmates fall under.
I have to laugh every time people say the ACA is going to solve the health care cost issue. Especially when people like HK accuse the insurance companies of killing citizens. If you think our problems are solved then you need to be checked out. In regards to Medicaid- majority of all doctors do not accept medicaid patients any more because they make no money on them. You will have a lot more people on Medicaid and a lot less doctors taking the plan so longer waits and longer ER lines. You will have a lot less doctors so longer lines and longer waits. Do you actually think that just because people carry insurance it will be better. You still have the percent that the insurance doesn't pay. people will still refuse to pay that amount. Medicare and medicaid have either low or no co pays. so when they make less than 18 cents on the dollar how do you think things are gonna get better. Besides do you actually think you are gonna get the same kind of care when the medical staff have their own pay effected by the cost cuts. I bet not. You don't like it when your pay is messed with, I know they will not either.
I'm sorry wow that you feel the criminals are the only people that should be aloud to carry firearms. Majority of all states have a carry law. Like it or not they have the right to carry. They carry for a reason-because of people like you. Even if GZ had followed TM. He stopped and started heading back to his car. Why didn't TM run for his life?instead he turned around, hid and waited for the supposed threat(GZ) to walk away and then jumped him. TM must have really been worried for his life to wait for him to come back so he could jump him. IF a 17 year old boy doesn't realize that people other than boys in the hood might carry a gun he was stupid for thanking it.
Rob read some of the prior postings. I have presented several solutions that would help. none of them involved Medicare but a lot did involve Medicaid. You keep asking about Medicare.If you are so for everything try arguing Medicaid for once. The elderly do need our help. The poor need our help but don't need it as much.
gee HK what part of what I said above gives you that Idea? but how you define poor and how I define poor may be 2 differing things. Stop trying to put words into other people's mouths that you cannot defend. IF you can defend that question show me where I said it.
