I just can't believe how many pinkos are on FARK.

Gee willikers. Many of us are just gosh-durned former Republicans who are just plain-diddly-danged sick of GOP bunk.

But, shucks, if celebrating Obama and Romney implementing the Heritage Foundation (a conservative think tank)'s plan to tighten the ol' belt on health insurance abuses makes me a pinko, well... I guess I'll just figure a swell way to squeeze these beets into my apple pie.

Bucky Katt: With all the paid shills, there's already too much trolling here. Why do have to add to it?


I always wondered, how do you get a job as a paid shill? I mean, paid to go on Facebook and Twitter and Fark and Reddit and all these other websites and social media platforms and mindlessly spout the party line, insult the other side, and try to fake there being more than just one of you?

We know they are out there, but it's not like they advertise for it in help wanted sections.

Is this some kind of work-from-home rehab program for the brain damaged? A part-time job for an entire chapter of Young Republicans?

No derp. You have me confused with someone else. So I am evil because I don't like ObamaCare or Obama? How many aliases do you have?


totally.

How anyone can support obamacare is beyond me. Its an infringement of your freedom and mine and that of every American.

Nothing is more American than the right we all have to have our livelihoods destroyed by illness when we're unemployed and uninsured. Nothing is more of a testament to American achievement than being unable to get insurance on the open market because of a preexisting condition for you, your spouse, or especially your children. We must never forget the children of this country, the future upon which we all depend. They too should never be denied the right to be denied affordable health care because of having been ill, or ADHD, or some other profit margin eroding illness. They must do their part to assure and ensure the profit margins of the great Insurance Companies which defend our very way of life and maintain the sanctity of our precious bodily fluids. Pass on those people, pass the cost of their health care onto the families, the communities, the ERs, because spreading that risk around the entire population through mandated care, that's just bad business for the insurance companies. And as we all know, that's un-American.

I know emergency room functions etc. I am worried about the human resource part of it from a pragmatic view. Lots of doctors are going to hang up their spurs since they won't be able to afford working under the auspices of ObamaCare. Our health care worker ratio will be all farked up. We are going to have a bunch of baby boomers needing gerontological health care. It will strain an already strained system. It didn't help that ObaMao stole almost a trillion from Medicare to fund his brainchild piece of legislation. I am a little too young to be a baby boomer. I think the health care system is indeed farked. I come from an engineering background, and I believe in taking solutions step by step, rather than writing a 2000 page law that most lawmakers didn't even read. At least the idiot Cass Sunstein is gone. For the record, I don't like Obama OR Romney. Truly intelligent people are smart enough to stay out of politics. The mayor of my city is a "grade A" cretin.

Welp I got some bad news for you:

Bad News 1: It looks like the dems are taking the senate no matter what and there is NO way they are going to dismantle the signature piece of legislation they have spent 50 years working on.

Bad news 2: after the worst week in Obama's campaign now the bleeding has stopped and has begun to reverse, even at his lowest point he still had a 5-6 point lead in ohio and has a massive lead in the early voting. Romney is not going to win without Ohio.

Bad news 3: Do you think it is likely even if Romney squeaks by, that your fair-haired golden boy is going to repeal obama care? He pretty much said he is planning on keeping most of the provisions.

Well, the SCOTUS is taking another swing at it. I just can't believe how many pinkos are on FARK.


Obamacare was written by a committee that doesnt understand it, passed by a congress that didnt read it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didnt pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

armoredbulldozer: You want the government to control almost 20% of our economy, under a pinko presidency? Download the bill, read it, or at least skim it like I did. Search for the words hospice and tax, and see how you feel. We will be waiting to see doctors, since many of them will not be able to afford to keep their practices open. Anything Obama touches turns to shiat. Why should this be any different? Before you answer, look at the amount of executive orders he has issued, and read them. Uh-huh.....


Actually, the really frightening thing, were I to take your word as unvarnished truth, would be that a fifth of America's entire economy is based upon profiteering from illness and injury.

Making sure Obama doesn't get a single bill he wants past. And probably impeachment if they can't think of anything else.


More to the point: can't an argument be made that since McConnell didn't accomplish his single most important goal, he should therefore resign? (Falling on sword optional, but welcome.)
