hubiestubert: eraser8: If you ask one of these people why, exactly, they're so upset, most won't be able to articulate anything that's, well, articulate.

The rest will babble on about things that are outright false.

These people simply cannot be reasoned with -- because reason has nothing whatever to do with their views and beliefs. And, that's scary because they're recruiting other weak minded people to their line of paranoia.

We're coming to a point where nearly half the country is completely misinformed and living in a near-constant state of paranoid delusion.

The good news is that they'll have affordable care when their hearts finally protest the spikes in pressure...


Good news for them, maybe. Not for the rest of us.

It's not odd that TEAtards love CU but not this ruling. Remember, CU is a greater boon to conservatives, generally speaking. Therefore, it is the correct ruling. Yesterday's decision benefits regular people, which means they hate it.

But you are definitely correct about the "destroy America" part. CU is incredibly dangerous, infinitely more than the mandate. "Destroy America" is just histrionic b*tch-speak for "I don't like it." It wasn't "destroying America" when the GOP had the same basic idea; suddenly the flags on the porch are at half-mast and people are posting stupid pics of Obama burning the Constitution.

The insane, unhinged GOP base is going to let loose a daily tirade of stupidity and righteous indignation that will be epic. And if Obama wins reelection, these people are going to go absolutely ape shiat. It's going to be great!

Look, you teatards, I tolerated your shenanigans for the most part because I found you to be the loopy brethren of some backwoods hick-family. But this is beyond low for you. You actually believe it's immoral to give someone access to affordable healthcare? Really? What the hell is wrong with you? Most of you have access to Social Security and Medicare, both of which are government programs, but when the government wants to help those that aren't you to get similar access to health, you want to deny them? What part of your bible to you not understand? The whole helping your fellow man thing? You want to believe that you're a stand-up moral do gooder of justice, then grow a farking pair and actually support better access to basic health needs, not because you benefit from them but because it's the right thing to do.

Without this law, I'd be denied coverage (most likely) outside of MA because I have an increased risk of developing MS. And you bastards want to deny me the ability to live outside of my state because of that? Don't deny me the freedom to live and actually live a life outside the state where I can actually afford to see a doctor without selling off my first-born. So riddle me this, oh great moral compasses of our time, why should you deny us the right to affordable medical care when you'd get pissy if we did the same to you? What makes you better, more deserving people? Nothing? Then fark off you hover-round freeloaders

So, I'm still a little lost here. Isn't the main thrust of the initiative (or bill or whatever it is) to require everyone to have health insurance? I'm sure there is plenty of extra stuff in there, and from one of the other threads, I know that there are some tax things too, but the main bit is the one that I'd like to ask you Farkers more knowledgeable about this than I am.

How would the supreme court's overturning of it have denied healthcare to anyone? I mean, is there a segment of the poplulation somewhere that gets told "No" at the ER or at the doctor's office (aside from payment issues at the Dr office)

How does the supreme court's upholding of it give healthcare to the poor (disadvantaged, underemployed whatever)? I haven't seen anything that said that now every poor homeless person will be able to get free checkups twice a year.

Third, where can one find what the real practical effects of this might be? I'm frankly a little tired of the "Obama just SAVED AMERICA!!!" from the left and the opposing "Obama just DESTROYED AMERICA!!!" from the right. Those are all that my searches seem to turn up. I'm not sure that reading the actual text of the bill would do more than confuse and annoy me just as much.

Sounds like you're having a breakdown. Hope you have good HC insurance.

Hyperbolic, puling teatard who still thinks letting the economy collapse due to a debt ceiling default was a pretty good idea needs to enjoy a steaming mug of SFTU, possibly to help wash down some new anti-psychotic meds.

To the Tea Party leader, the Supreme Court ruling was a personal breaking point. "I'm so fed up, I'll do anything for anybody," he said, "but they're breaking me, they're breaking me down."

FTA: "No one cares about me, they all make their promises and then go do what they goddamn feel."

What, suddenly you're running things now? I missed that bit, you know, where YOU were in control of everything in the world.

It's kind of interesting that he's not framing this in the sense of how it affects America in general, but what it means for him personally. True, the only rhetoric you'll hear about how this hurts Americans is "This is tyranny" and "Socialisms" and other soundbites from the AM radio spectrum, but at least that implies that they're wiling to cast a veneer of selflessness over their rejection of reform. This person only cares about what it means for his own wallet.

Trouble with democracy is that you don't always get what you want.

I took a tour of Freeperville - okay, I admit it, it was a very visceral day for me. Nuanced opinion: "Well I don't really like the decision but given the choice between nothing whatsoever and Obamacare I guess I'll take Obamacare since it's still an improvement over the system we have." Then I spent half the day wandering websites for the redstate reaction. "Let us now go to American Thinker; they do amuse me so." I don't really like admitting that since it puts me on the same level as people who vote for idiots because those idiots "piss off the Liberals," but I'm only human.

Anywho, I stumbled upon this post from some guy who said that there was no way he could possibly afford health insurance for himself and his wife and that over four years Obama had taken everything he'd ever had away from him. You could practically see the tears sprinkled upon the paper. The Courts made a decision regarding health care distribution and these people are _mourning the fall of a nation._

This isn't a huge surprise. These people have been hearing for the last three years that Obamacare will be the end of the Republic and the gateway to a new era of government intrusion. They are absolutely convinced of that. And not only did they pin all their hopes on the Supreme Court decision, they were certain that decision was going to fall their way. In this alternate-universe construct they've created for themselves, they literally have no country to call their own anymore.

If I woke up tomorrow and discovered that my country had been invaded by totalitarians that had burned Washington, leveled our largest cities, set fire to the cornfields of Nebraska, and set up a military dictatorship, I'd probably shed a tear, too. To them, it's the same thing. They literally see no difference between an insurance mandate and an invasion by the Soviets. Which explains all these calls for violent armed rebellion.

Dear conservatives: You're absolutely right. I don't give a damn about you. I don't care about your whining or your tears or your assurances that the collapse of Western Civilization is right around the corner. I don't think you guys have the slightest clue what "freedom" means and I think you should try exploring a world broader than a fourth-grade social studies textbook for awhile.

You didn't get what you wanted this time. Tough beans. It happens.

Me, I'm going to study this decision, find out what it means to me, determine the least expensive way to remain in compliance, and ensure that my records are up-to-date. You know. Like civic-minded grownups with a sense of personal responsibility tend to do.

...So, nyah. :P

Well, it doesn't get EVERYBODY, obviously: It's not single-payer. What it DOES do is make insurance cheaper, keeps insurance companies from dropping you for bullshiat reasons, gets rid of "lifetime care limits", eliminates the "pre-existing condition" bullshiat, and mandates that everyonewho can afford it buy health insurance, or face a penalty. And that's the nutshell version. The full version would be a GWOT that I honestly don't have the entirety of, and I also don't have the patience to type in what I DO have.

Hell, read this reddit post for a GREAT explanation.

He deleted his old post and replaced it with this:

At this time I am publicly retracting the statements I made concerning the Supreme Court in the wake of their verdict regarding health care.
I am retracting them because they do not reflect my true feelings about the Supreme Court Justices. They were made in the heat of the moment fueled by anger and frustration. I vented my anger without thinking and the result were hurtful remarks which I didn't believe then and don't believe now. I do not wish anything bad on the Supreme Court Justices or anyone else and never have. I deeply regret my inability to properly convey my frustration or control my anger. My behavior was wrong and inexcusable. I take 100% responsibility for my actions and realize I am accountable for them.
I believe the Supreme Court's verdict was incorrect and will bestow excessive taxation and hardship to millions of Americans but instead of explaining why they were wrong, I through my thoughtless statements, provided fodder for those who oppose the Tea Party. My words were mine alone and in no way representative of the Tea Party. I deeply regret that my actions will be used to attack individuals who work so hard to ensure that the values of the framers of the constitution continue to be adhered to and followed. The members of the Tea Party are thoughtful caring individuals I am sorry that my thoughtless words are being used to weave everyone one together but I am sure we will persevere because the Tea Party Message is consistent with the visions of the founders of our country.
This is my final statement on the issue. You can't unring a bell and I will move forward. I am humbled and have learned a valuable lesson. In the future I will use better judgment and will continue to work hard to preserve the values and principles of our constitution.

This is the face of the Republican base: crazy eyes that house a brain that does not live in this reality, pasty white skin, and a look of quiet desperation. It's the face of a hick begging for real-life drama to avoid the voices in his brain that try to make him see sense and ask him what the fark he's doing in life combined with the ones on the television telling him that America--the one that only exists in black and white reruns--is under threat and that he can be a big hero if he just stands up for whatever issue pisses him off. It's the face of a man who is brave enough to completely destroy his credibility yet not brave enough to make changes in his life that he so desperately wants: the Republican brand of cowardice that does everything in its power, no matter how mindless except the one that makes them live the lives they want instead of forcing reality to fit their sad, pathetic mold.

Hobodeluxe: I'm guessing his lawyer typed that up for him. Must've gotten a little call from the secret service.


He probably got a call from the Party, telling him to shut the fark up because he'll lose his cherry job.

One thing I find most hilarious about Teabaggers (and conservatives in general) is all their talk about "damn gubmint taking mah money and giving it to poor people" (etc.). All their OUTRAGE. Where the hell is their outrage at a $600 billion "defense" budget? From $1800 hammers in the 80s to the $30,000 engine drip pan (with gaskets!) for helicopters in the 00s.

What a bunch of scum.

I'm not so sure about that. I'll bet that people like this guy are unlikely to seek out treatment for mental health issues, and unless he commits some sort of crime, he won't be getting any...
