Surely they misheard her. She was merely wishing him luck in his ass-kissing.

Does this still make Sarah President?

"We better worry about Obamacare before we worry about Ryan," added Erma, a self-described conservative. Erma wasn't the only conservative senior citizen at the Original Hot Dog Shoppe to demonstrate that the party faithful have absorbed the Medicare message being pushed by the Romney-Ryan campaign this week.

"Oh, don't believe none of that stuff," Eleanor Costantino, a senior citizen from Warren, told me when I asked her if she was worried about Romney-Ryan taking away Medicare. "It's all nothing but a bunch of lies!"


Let them reform her medicare for a few months, then ask her if she wants Obaamycare.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stopped by the Original Hot Dog Shoppe here this afternoon to chat with voters and grab some lunch. The Wisconsin congressman and fitness nut chowed down on two hot dogs with onion, extra kraut and mustard, a side of small chili-cheese fries, and an unsweetened iced tea. The total bill came to $8.78, including a chili-cheese dog Ryan purchased for a reporter celebrating his twenty-seventh birthday.

But did he pay with cash or credit card?

Come on...I'm on the edge of my seat here.

"He's going to save Medicare," chimed in Eleanor's friend Karen Combs from Cortland, Ohio. "There's $700 billion under Obamacare coming out of Medicare, and seniors should be more frightened over that."

Oh for farksake.

I suppose you aren't noting the fact that Mr. Ryan, unlike that evil Mr. Obama, did not put ketchup on the hotdog.  Obviously, this is the difference between a home grown American and a real dog eating Kenyan.

Did Obama really put ketchup on a hot dog? Do you have a source for that, because that could be a real deal-breaker for me.

He put spicy mustard on a cheeseburger. That may be normal in Kenya, but it's kind of strange here, if you know what I mean.

It's called Fox News, and it's literally the ONLY source of information for many of these people.

My neighbor is one of these whacked-out, eternally-outraged and angry Republicans, and she tells me that she only watches what Fox News tells her to watch and only reads what Fox News tells her to read.

She used to be a nice lady, too. Now, I can't even stomach talking to her. It's just all hate, hate, hate and it gets so old. It's just kind of sad that she's going to spend her scant few remaining years on this planet angry and scared and stupid.

I hate Fox. And, I feel sorry for anyone who watches it. They live horrible, ignorant and worthless lives, and they will probably never be good people again.

Obama Cuts Medicare growth over the next x years by increasing efficiency, and without cutting back on services. He's trying to destroy Medicare.

Ryan openly admits he wants to throw out Medicare and replace it with a voucher system that won't keep up with the cost of medical service. That's all a bunch of liberal lies.

I love how the rule of thumb is he who lies and is also GOP wins the battle. GOP spreads an idiotic lie, and they lap it up, and every effort to correct that lie is just a bigger lie and that's that. If the (D) gets out in front and says how it is, and the GOP lies and says no it's like this, the lie wins. If the (D) comes out first and lies, the GOP establishment jumps all over it in a fit of ejaculatory hypocrisy to disprove and cover it up with one of their own, better lies.

This isn't entirely a lie. It looks to be the result of reductions to Medicare Advantage spending; MedAdv was in theory supposed to save the federal government money, but in practice costs 14% more per patient. In short: part of the cuts is by removing a wasteful subsidy to private insurers.

More problematic is the cuts to reimbursement rates. However, such cuts seem substantially less drastic than converting Medicare to a voucher system as the Ryan plan proposed -- which would seem in effect to essentially dump all the funding into a program that, being similar to the MedAdv, can be expected to get from the money spent than the current Medicare program. Contrariwise, some Medicare patients may consider this the distinction of whether the proposed shiat sandwich has the feces replacing the condiment versus replacing the meat.

2012-08-17 04:41:09 PM
Well, they are right in a sense. Ryan will save medicare for them. He will destroy medicare for their children, though, but I'm guessing they don't care that much since they are blowing their children's inheritance living out their last days at a fancy resort

Deal Breaker? You know what, I'm done taking this shiat sitting down. The Ketchup/Catsup hate has got to stop NOW. Its a farking DELICIOUS compliment to almost ANY meat. Hotdog, hamburger, turkey burger, fried shrimp, chicken, and wait for it...STEAK! Let it bump into your mashed potatoes. Accidentally allow some to get on a chip at the cookout. It's farking GREAT.
