Is there going to come a point where the anti-health care reformers jump the shark?
 
2009-11-24 06:45:29 PM
From the gun people's website: Of course, all this increased spending -- and taxes -- means that you will have less money to spend on pursuing your real passions: like providing for your family and purchasing guns and ammunition!

Wow....

truth_is_stranger_than_fishin: Is there going to come a point where the anti-health care reformers jump the shark?

I'm pretty sure we're way past that point. Unless you mean that they will literally jump a shark to somehow prove that health care reform is bad, which is not so far fetched.

I think the pod of killer whales they've already jumped has chased off all the sharks.

Really?

This is what you bring to the table?

Just say, We owe some guys some favors so dance, puppets, dance!

It's more honest.

Weird how the NRA isn't mentioned in the article and the linked website isn't the NRA's website.

So subby, go fark yourself with a farking paintball gun.

According to the wiki page on them, they're actually more out there than the NRA. Apparently, they have a history of criticizing the NRA for not being pro gun enough. Ya srsly. (new window)

This must have come from their organization's Taskforce for Supplemental Enterprises.

Its more of a "supergroup", made up of members of other bands.

Ted Nugent, Charlton Heston, Kurt Cobain and Ice T?

...would allow the government to offer lower premiums to employers who bribe their employees to live healthier lifestyles

They can have my world of warcraft account when they pry it from my cold and greasy dead hands.

I saw a GOA guy on the Ed Show who said "They'll be going after fat people," and couldn't stop laughing for ten minutes.

I knew this would happen if we called it the Trigger Option.

stinieroo: GOA != NRA

Indeed.

From the Wikipedia article about GOA...Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a gun rights organization in the United States with over 300,000 members. They make efforts to differentiate themselves from the larger National Rifle Association (NRA), and have publicly criticized the NRA on multiple occasions for what the GOA considers to be the selling out of the gun rights movement.

Oh for the love of..

Look, NRA, we've had a great run. You've indulged the passions of gun nuts everywhere, tirelessly lobbying to keep gun and ammo prices high and fear in the "buy" zone, but somewhere along the way i met someone else. Her name is sanity, and she lives in a van by the lake. Now I know you'll find your true love (a giant swimming pool of money) in time, but you're not the one for me.

This is getting dangerously close to being even too crazy for the hardcore NRA members..

Obamacare will rob patriotic Republicans of their Constitutional freedom to jump over sharks.

I'm currently insured through AETNA, health and life insurance.

As part of my policy, I can't own guns.



/Oh wait, I just made that up.

anyway, i thought Acorn took our guns? at least that's what i read on FARK.com

I'm not a particularly big fan of Gun Control Laws, but seriously NRA, there's a difference between advocating for Gun Owner's rights, and going full retard.

THIS!
Care to out yourself, Subby? Farking biatchtroll!

The GOA is a bunch of nutbags. I belong to the POA (Para Owners of America) All I get is a few pamphlets a year touting the newest models. Oh, and a little sticker and a member card. No member dues either.

Para-Ordnance makes some excellent fire arms
 
2009-11-24 09:09:49 PM
Think about this though:

Where I live (Baltimore) we have a very high rate of death and injury due to gunshot wounds. Most of the people seeking treatment for gunshot wounds in the ER do not have insurance.

Most of the guns used in these shootings are illegal, and the shooters (and victims) are criminals.

2009-11-24 09:14:53 PM
Let me get this straight.

The bill's too long.

At the same time, every word in the bill must have accompanying clarifications making sure 1) illegal immigrants cannot purchase insurance; 2) not one dime will go to any form of reproductive health other than abstinence education; and 3) reassurances that people who shoot their friends in the face with guns won't have to pay higher premiums than non-Cheneys.

Got it.

Well here's the logic methinks...

When they say "you can take my gun from my cold dead hands" suddenly health care does enter into the debate.
