Politics, health care and Rush

10 posts in this topic

Very cool idea. So cool that it will never happen. Allowing the people to be in charge of themselves is just insane, at least that's what the politicians think.

History is being written every day. The Brits thought the 13 colonies were powerless, a bunch of people with pitchforks could never defeat them. I'm optimistic.

I guess I should have toned down my statement and said probably never happen. Over the last several years, I've lost faith in people doing the right thing. I used to be an optimist, but have become very pessimistic as I grow older. Hopefully, the next election can usher in people who are willing to do the hard work necessary to put this country back on track.

 

At one time, I was planning on retiring at 55. That has now been pushed back to 60. Considering all my medical issues, I hope I'm able to enjoy that time when it comes (I still have some optimism). Good thing I love my job, otherwise life would be much harder.

this "genius' and his cronies will do all they can do deny stem cell research therapy. He certainly no friend to us Parkies. I don't think the primary object of his hatred ( a black man no less, which I'm sure sticks in this bigot's craw) would deny stem cell research. The health care insurance companies already have reached the "death panel" level long ago. Just ask for an expensive diagnostic test that your Dr feels is neccessary for your optimal care and see how quickly they approve it ,This "genius" won't criticize big business, but is all to eager to attack Obamacare. Dr Carson in his speech speaks about putting the winning and losing aside , but Rush is still bitter because his party couldn't fix three elections in a row. What a pathetic, bitter sore loser. And you, Luther, admire him. I guess it takes all kinds.

Luther...

You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Mine is that pandering to big business has begun to ruin this country and the greed and graft encompassed in it will erode our empire as sure as it has other empires throughout histrory . Lobbyists are nothing more than grafters. All politicians are merely actors once they get into office. They will say or promise anything that will get them votes. If they don't, they become ex politicians and have to get a legitimate job. The politicians need the financial support and then owe favors. The people are the ones who ultimately pay and suffer at the expense of big business interests . I'm not a democrat or republican. I'm not a conservative, moderatre , or liberal. I'm a full blown radical. My belief is that single term limits are the only thing that will save this country. I believe that if a politician is proven guilty of anything improprietous, it's out you go, no benefits and mandatory jail time. Unfortunately, we will never see that happen. And I believe that your beloved Rush is a hypocritical, pompous windbag that needs to be ignored, not revered. Just puts words into the mouths of those who can't think for themselves. But please understand, nothing personal.

Vipowitz,

 

Did you actually listen to video or did you just dismiss the words because you have no respect for the messenger. How about listening to the man who actually made the comments, Dr. Benjamin Carson.

 

 

Dr Carson talks about Health Care approaching the 20:45 mark.

 

The good doctor has some good ideas.

I believe you my friend. And I agree with much of what you say. There's much to be bitter about, And it is all quite overwhelming. If I did not have faith in the God of the Bible, I would be quite pessimistic myself. I would say we need a man like Dr. Ben Carson in politics.
