shower_in_my_socks: skullkrusher: I have very little to hate from life. I live in a nice apartment in a great neighborhood in the greatest city in the world, I have a great family, lots of friends, loving wife, adorable little boy, Obamacare actually IS going to raise my taxes so...


Do you currently have health insurance for your "loving wife and adorable little boy"? If you answered "yes" to this question, then what specific taxes are going to increase for you because of Obama/RomenyCare?


I already asked that. Apparently, like Boehner, he's a little pissed at 10% extra on tanning bed visits.

skullkrusher: keep guessing, dummy.
Perhaps you missed the point. In explaining how I don't have much to hate in my life I mentioned how I will be paying more in taxes as a result of the bill. I don't go tanning. I have insurance. Put 2 and 2 together, chief.

Why don't you just tell us, drama queen? The only other tax increase possibility is that your household income is north of $250k per year, in which case, CRY ME A F*CKING RIVER.

Ambivalence: And he's black so he can TOTALLY say that and not be all racist.

Stupid, but not racist. Retarded, but not racist. Craven political tool, but not racist.


If you read more of his rantings, it becomes clear that the term you're looking for is "insane". I'm all for this, because at some point it will lead to some very minimal entry requirements if you want to assume national office. Sanity being one. Cognitive reasoning would be nice too.

intelligent comment below: jodaveki: Secret muslim & Kenyan are ways of coming at the negro issue from an oblique angle. West's caché lies in his ability to allow conservatives rabidly anti-Obama to say, "I'm not racist; see? Allen West!"


Disagree again.

I think those angles were there only because he went to Indonesia, had a Kenyan father, and had a foreign sounding name.

If he had the same history as Allan West (besides the war criminal part) they would just find more dirt to make up about him.

The right wing did the same thing with Clinton.

Dig up supposed affairs, bad business deals, "hit list", "misplaced the football" etc etc


Sigh. You're focusing on the foreign thing, when it's actually a negro thing. And my point is West simply serves as a deflection of that charge. Just like Cain, just like Keyes.

Here's the simplest way: "We can't say we hate him 'cuz he's black-- that's racist! But what if we say he's foreign? Or Muslim? That's close enough, isn't it?"

skullkrusher: that wasn't so hard to figure out, was it?


Wow. You make a quarter of a million dollars a year. I don't think my Dad has made that in his entire life.

Let me explain about my Dad.

During the polio epidemic in the 1950's, the government gave every school child a vaccine, without informing their parents. This was a live vaccine, which they knew would give a tiny percentage of the population polio. My Dad was one of the ones who got polio.

My Dad has never been able to get health insurance due to this pre-existing condition. No one will insure him. He's been able to make Medicare work, sort of, but his copays for his heart issues, diverticulitis, and melanoma are a good bit of money. Add in his medication (which thanks to Bush's Medicare Prescription Drug crap, he can't even get the drugs prescribed to him; they get substituted for "equivalents" - not generics, just a drug a different doctor that has never seen my Dad or his charts says is "just as good as".)

Most months, he has about half of his disability check left over for bills. Other months, even less.

Dude, you didn't give my Dad polio. You aren't charging him excessive amounts for medication and copays. There is nothing you have done or not done or could have done differently to avoid this situation. I will be the first to admit this isn't your fault.

I want you to know where that your money is going. It's going to help pay for my Dad's medical issues. With luck, he might have a couple of more good years. It's not likely, but it wouldn't be possible at all if this bill hadn't passed.

So, for what it's worth, Thank you. I mean that, sincerely. Thank you. Because of people like you that have been successful, my Dad will get a little more time in a lot less pain. I'll hopefully get a few more years to spend with him.

Once again, this situation wasn't your fault. But thank you for that tax money.

You should probably read what you link to before you post it.... I really doubt any of these apply to you... the closest I could find to a tax on you is the lottery, which many refer to as a "stupidity tax."

you're welcome. I wish the powers that be had the sacks to push the burden a little heavier and a little higher up the income ladder to avoid increasing taxes on people who do spend a large bit of their annual income and who already bear the brunt of our bullshiat "progressive" parabolic effective tax rate scheme but I don't want to see people suffering any sort of serious maladies solely because they couldn't afford treatment.

His name doesn't sound foreign.

Umm. No. The emphasis on the name of course has just been a way of coming at the negro issue from an oblique angle.


Disagree. If Obama was named Allan West, I doubt you'd see arguments of secret Muslim or born in Kenya.


That's why the WND argument that a communist named Davis was Obama's real dad is laughable.
