A turn for the better?


A few weeks after town hall shrieking was all the rage, it appears that public opinion might be shifting back in favor of health-care reform. A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that opposition to the president’s effort has dropped, with the public now split evenly, with 40 percent in favor and 40 percent against the plans now being debated in Congress. Twenty percent of those polled apparently were too stupid or uninformed to know what they think. Significantly, outright opposition from independents, a group that likely will play a key role in deciding which party will control Congress after next year’s midterm elections, declined from 51 percent to 36 percent. Also, senior citizens are now less likely to oppose reform plans. Republicans, of course, are decidedly in favor of the status quo. My opinion is that unless there is a public option, reform is little more than window dressing, and if I had to bet a large of sum of money right now, my guess is that the watered-down mess that eventually emerges from Congress will have little impact on the health-care problems facing the country, namely cost and access.

It's called a stall tactic. The TV tells us that the general public is less smarter today then it was 200 years ago. Well they used the same tactic durning the whiskey rebellion in 1794. Some of you might have heard of the man, Albert Gallatin. Do you know his history? He said no to a 7 cent a gallon tax on whiskey. He told the govt that if he was to be taxed on this, that the federal govt would tax eveything that is consumed. Pretty smart guy. Makes me went to jump up and pay my soda tax.

It is what it is. The powers that be are betting on the opposition to forget about it. I wish they would get really cocky and paper clip the health bill to the crap and tax bill so the we can say no all at once.

Whatever happens, the health care have nots will still have not and those with big money will be able to afford big doctors. I wonder how much health care could be bought using the money NASA spent to crash a couple of rockets into the moon to see if there's water vapor in the dust clouds the crashes cause? Better yet, why not classify health care as torture and get Dick Cheney to shill for it?

If the AP isn’t “state run media” than nobody is! One cannot believe anything AP says. Having said that,
we ARE going to have health care reform with a public option, or co-op (same thing with a different name) no matter what the majority of people want. Harry Reid and sweet face Nancy will do ANYTHING to make sure it happens. Going to town hall meeting is a total waste of time. It also does no good to write, call, or e-mail your elected representatives either because they don’t give a s**t what you have to say.
Voting them out of office in 2010 will do no good as the deed will be done by then and it cannot be reversed. Our government has been allowed by us to get completely out of control. We are no longer represented by those we elect. For the last ten to fifteen years we have allow ourselves to be under-represented by this vermin and now the entire governmental structure is infested with these self-serving bastards.
Somehow, someway, we must take back control of our government or the tyranny will continue until we are not just a socialist nation, but an out and out communist one in which we will live in slavery. I’m old so I won’t have too many years to suffer under this oppression. However, I do feel bad for the future generations the WE have let down by spending too much time debating sports teams, and watching “Dancing With the Stars”. We have not been vigilant in monitoring our governments’ activities, and now we are paying the price.

I have NO problem with your remarks at all. However, if you REALLY believe in what you say why not attach your real name. None of us should be afraid to express our opinions so long as we truly have committed ourselves to our convictions. I have been criticized, and generally “beat-up” by some that don’t
like what I have to say. In reality, they are really attacking my right to say what I feel. Do I like being called some of the things I have been called? Of course not. However, I can’t, and won’t, allow myself to be silenced. In my opinion, you should not either. I feel very strongly that, if one is going to voice his/her thoughts, they should take responsibility for the statements. I am NOT criticizing you a Anon, just expressing my view.

You may lose some back and forth with moderation, but a lot of the back and forth is "your opinion stinks" followed by "no, yours does" then "maybe, but yours stinks worse." I can do without that. Look at the Washington Post, which doesn't moderate comments on articles -- people paste in the same boilerplate comments several times a day. If moderation makes you think before you submit something, that's a good thing.

Brant you mean the death panels that wasn't in the bill, but then the dems said they would take it out? How can you take something out if it wasn't in?

Remember what I said about the illegals? Obama wouldn't give illegals health care, that he would just make the citizens first.

Call you what you want it. I call it moderen day slavery. I live in a state (not by choice) where the unemployment numbers are around 16%. You know the farmers still bus in illegals to pick produce! Where is the outcry? How is it a certain group can choose what laws they want to obey and get away with it?

Why did Obama try to stop Sheriff Joe from picking up illegals? He was just inforcing the laws. Good thing Sheriff Joe isn't scared. He said fine he wouldn't enforce Federal laws, that he would just enforce his State Law. When need someone in the White House with a strong back bone.. **== Sheriff Joe 2012?

Enforce the laws on the books and they wouldn't be here in the first place! Ask Cali how the illegals has helped their state. BROKE! I live in a state, that our small school hires a illegal immergrant interruptor! Yet this year they want school teachers to take 3 days off without pay. WTF! Why do we need an illegal immergrant interruptor teaching the law breakers how to rape the federal govt? As our teachers go without pay! WTF!

We should end farm subsidies to pay for health care.

There is a hint of a good idea there. M. Jackson got farm subsidies! End the loop holes. Also if a farmer post his land not to hunt on.. end the farm subsidies! I hate people that get farm subsidies, yet don't let people hunt.

"Call it a clown nose if you want... doesn't make it a clown nose."

Paying an illegal 4 bucks an hr to pick squash, is slavery!

As the dollar folds.... I want you to remember, if you lived in the great Roman Empire, you could take an oz of gold and buy a fine robe, hand made belt and shoes. Nothing has changed.. if you had an oz of gold today you could still buy a fine suit, hand made belt and sweet shoes. Yet our money is worth the ink and paper it is written on, G.W. Bush didn't help our dollar out, and Obama still guts it! Can you remember your parents saying they could buy a loaf of bread for a quarter? It was because the quarter was silver! Nothing has changed. If you had a quarter that was silver you could sell it for about 3 bucks today, and still buy that same loaf of bread. Last time we faced inflation like this was under JJJJJ JIMMY Carter, and without Carter there wouldn't have been a Reagan. It always gets darker before light.

You can call me a birther, tea bagger, or racist. That seems to be what people are today if they don't stand for Berry. Racist. Berry will be a one timer. Berry's free ride is over in 2010, yet I don't think we have learned our lesson without a third party.

Give it to me honestly! General Santa Anna said they would and they have taken back the Alamo without a shot being fired. If you go south of the red river, you are the minority! Some places in TX they fly the Mexican flag over their city halls. Why did Obama pull off all those border guards off the border!? Why do democrats run and opperate sanctuary cities?
You know the answers. Votes! We live in country that we have to show our picture i.d to buy cold medicine, but not to vote.

I don't see how hunting = farming... what if I don't want people shooting near my cows?

Every farm has a cow? If you post your land, you shouldn't get a dime from the tax payers. You are saying please don't help get rid of the over populated deer that eat my crops, but please send me your tax dollars. WTF!? Are you for real? There is laws about killing farmers live stock. If you steal a cow or horse in Oklahoma, you could be hanged!

And yet, raising the minimum wage a buck or two is the worst thing ....

Yes sir. What is your dollar worth today vs the dollar of 1913? I'll tell you 4 cents. The more dollars we have, the less it is worth! Instead of reducing the amount of dollars in this world, G.W. raised the min. wage. I say boo and good job. Bad for the middle class, yet good for the poor. Pick your posion.

I don't understand why anyone should be forced to allow hunting on their land. I'm not anti-hunter. In fact, I'm all for reducing the deer population through hunting. But individual property owners should be able to make decisions about the use of their land. X-anon, you seem to be a person who is in favor of individual rights and personal freedom, so why wouldn't you extend that personal freedom to people who don't want hunting on their land? And not everyone who posts his land is getting government money. As for the teabaggers, I'm going to go ahead and believe that there's a segment of racists in that group that exceeds the percentage of racists in the general population. The last presidential election showed us that in some states, West Virginia among them, race played a significant role in the voting decisions of a significant number of those casting ballots.

sorry brant, i was trying to check my email this am but my account was locked!

But individual property owners should be able to make decisions about the use of their land......Sure! Just don't ask for federal assistance!

You seem to be for wealth redistribution and socialism when it's everyone else that gives up their money! Yet when the farmers are made to put up or shut up it's a bad idea? Their are many federal programs that have guidlines that one must meet to obtain in order to qualify! One of those criterias for federal monies to go to a farmer should infact be not posting your land, and letting people take game off your land.

A. Helps the farmer and his crops

B. Helps feed the poor.

Federal govt spends less on both issues if the land isn't posted.

I can't find a bad idea about it!

Here farmers pay less taxes on their land then the avg Joe to start with, and yet we are going to pay the farmer to have crop damage that he didn't try to avoid?

I'm all about personal freedom, but when you stick your hand out to the taxpayer, he should get something in return.

I think the people screaming about socialism wouldn't know an honest-to-god socialist if one crawled up and bit 'em in the arse. It's a buzzword, just like communism was in the '50s and '60s and, if you go back far enough, just like calling Americans Indians "godless savages" was so we could take their land. When you can't line up enough good reasons to support your own theories, you start calling the other guy names and playing to the fears of those who are easily led. The Indians, blacks, Spics, Micks, Kikes,non-Christians, slanty-eyed gooks and towel heads are going to ruin America! It has worked for thousands of years and always will.

I don't have a problem paying higher taxes so long as the tangible benefit is worth it...

I can't really argue with you about the farming thing... I do not agree with the subsidies and breaks that are extended to farmers in the first place... I don't care if they post their land or not... but since we are in agreement, somewhat, on the base issue, it makes it hard to argue tangential issues relating to it...

I've been to Europe, so I know for a fact what socialist goverments look like. I have been to Viet F'ing nam... I know what a communist country looks like. As far as the Indians "godless savages", I say learn your history.

We would make land deals with one tribe of Indains, and four months would go by and another tribe of Indains would kill the settlers.

How many tribes was in the Greene and Washington county area? Do you know? Can you name them?

Five Nations hunted the lands in between the Ohio river and the Mon.. the Mohawk, Oneida, Onodaga,Cayuga and Seneca. Depending what what tribe one would pass on the Warrior Trail if Indians would attack. I would ask you to find a book about Dr. Samuel Eckerlin, wonder how he felt about the Indians. How about the Sycks and Enix? We all have heard about Corbly's story...

It sucks how America became.. I am Indian. My Uncle is the Cheif of the Creek Indians in northwest Florida, but that is how people use to fight and win wars. I can't change it...

You remind me of this guy in TX. Alex Jones. He puts a hint of truth in a story then spins the hell out of it. Is your name Alex?

California has the highest density of illegal immigrants, but it's budget problems are above and beyond the budget problems faced by the other states at the top of the list: http://www.statemaster.com/graph/peo_est_num_of_ill_imm_percap-number-illegal-immigrants-per-capita

Therefore, it stands to reason that California's budget problems have more to do with the legislature (similar to PA's problems having to do with the legislature) than it does with their population.

Off the top of my head, I'd have to say that I have been to about 15 states. Texas and California are not among them.

"If you go south of the red river, you are the minority! "

I'm not sure how white people being a minority is inherently bad... I know that you are saying that there are more illegals there than white people... but it sounds like you are saying that it's bad when there are more hispanics than whites. I don't agree.

"Every farm has a cow?"

No... but quite frankly, I wouldn't want you shooting near my corn, either... but we covered this already, I basically agree with you.

"Yes sir. What is your dollar worth today vs the dollar of 1913? I'll tell you 4 cents. The more dollars we have, the less it is worth! Instead of reducing the amount of dollars in this world, G.W. raised the min. wage. I say boo and good job. Bad for the middle class, yet good for the poor. Pick your posion."

Ok... so you wouldn't have been rewarded with putting your dollar in a box and burying it? This is GOOD. You have no incentive to take currency out of circulation. Instead, if you put that dollar into an investment that returned an average of 5%, you'd have just over 104 dollars today. Our monetary system rewards you for investing your capital in the production of other goods and services. Inflation devalues stagnant money. Interest, dividends, and capital gains grow money by keeping it in circulation.

As an Indian, perhaps you should read history as well. Perhaps then you'd figure out that if the whites hadn't gone into Indian lands and started killing Indians, tribes wouldn't have attacked other white settlers. How many treaties did the US break with Indians just to get land and gold? How many Incas and Aztecs were slaughtered by the Spanish simply because they happened to live where the Spanish wanted to go?

I'm not of the love it or leave it crowd, but I have yet to hear anyone decrying our "socialist" tendencies point out what country is better run. As if it is, why not move there?

I did read something about if your have a premature baby under 22 weeks, under that plan, the doctors hand you your baby and walk out of the room and you get to hold it while the baby dies in your arms. Nice!

I don't think this plan will pass. There is other ways of fixing the health care in this nation besides taxing everyone.

Poor spelling on a resume will lose you a chance at a job and, eventually the respect of those who read what you write, even if your logic is sound. If you expect to be taken seriously, you should learn to spell. It's a skill taught, for free, in American public schools, although the enforcement of the rules seems to be slipping every year. Defending those who can't spell or can't take the time to look up a suspect word or use spell checkers just makes the problem worse.

Now is that before everyone lost their ass this year? You are talking about risk and reward. That is different than fiat money. Our dollar isn't back by jack chit anymore! We have talked about this before. Really you should youtube the the creature from jekyll island.

I don't know of a bank issued cd that pays over 4% today. (i haven't looked in 4 mths) I've lived all over the world. People in the west and south look at the market as a rip off cause they (most)don't understand that our market is based on bubbles. Always goes up, and burst. If you don't know when to get out, you will lose!

"California has the highest density of illegal immigrants, but it's budget problems are above and beyond the budget problems faced by the other states at the top of the list"

DUH? First thing I would do is look at how many illegals are in the prison system, then how many illegals go to the er to have a baby. How many school programs are set up just for illegals. How much police monies are spent on fighting illegal gangbangers. ect..

Still I think the subject of me screwing up a word is way off subject and I don't know why the host would even allow such a stupid, persnickity post!

"I did read something about if your have a premature baby under 22 weeks, under that plan, the doctors hand you your baby and walk out of the room and you get to hold it while the baby dies in your arms."

And I read that if you cry when that baby dies, a socialist death panel will vote to off you on the spot because you are too weak and thinning out the gene pool. This is a good example of why you shouldn't believe everything you read. I don't believe that anymore than I believe that everyone who went to Mapletown schools can't spell, that all Indians have a problem with alcohol or that all white early settlers of America killed Indians for their land and gold.

I'm still waiting to hear from anyone, not just x-anon, where they'd rather live when America becomes a socialist state. You seem to have no problem with America being an plutocracy.
