Whoever wrote that is pretty darn funny. LOL

All they did was list the items in the bill and then assumed a new "board or commission" would be needed to implement them.

Without a doubt, there will be additional employees needed to oversee some of these items but.............this doofus acts like grant programs, Medicare and Indian Health Services doesn't already exist. :doh:

Thanks.

It's always good to put a face to the doofus'. LOL

Now my question is, does anyone think that the non-partisan CBO didn't factor in any additional employees needed for this bill........... when they came out with their estimate?

Let me ask you this Mr big government... What good comes of more people working for the government...

Name one thing in the government sector that can not be done in the private sector cheaper, quicker and with better quality...

You have it wrong, I am not an advocate for "big government."

I do believe however, that as far as protection for the common citizen..........government is a better choice than "Big Business."

If there were a way to privatize most of the government services, and still protect the common person..............I would be all for it.

A question for you.

Do you think our politicians have become corrupted and indebted by all of the money being poured toward them from government employees..........or by big business?

To believe that if we just let business' run amok and that they will protect us from being ripped off out of the goodness of their hearts..............is pretty naive IMHO. :shrug:

I think people are responsible for there own actions... Is it not legal for big business to pour money at them? Why is it still legal? Because they want it.

Make people responsible for there actions and this issue you talk about will be gone. Term limits, no pay off's, no free rides...

As much as you may say your not for big government, you are. I can see it in every post you make...

I agree with you there...

The only business the government should be in is protecting us from outside threats, and that's it...

I am so sick of the pansy handout state we have become... Everyone wants something for nothing. Its complete bull####.

The constitution did not say that you would be given a home you could not afford, a car you can not afford, health care for your litter of children you can not afford, or a unlimited supply of unemployment...

Make your way, or get the F out of the way.

Not really sure what you're talking about. If you mean why is it legal to pour money at politicians, it's because Big Business wants to keep it that way.

Make people responsible for there actions and this issue you talk about will be gone. Term limits, no pay off's, no free rides...
Which "people" should be responsible for their actions? Big business? Or just the common citizen?

And after the recent, asinine (IMHO), ruling by the SCOTUS on campaign contributions................how do you propose to put a stop to it?


As much as you may say your not for big government, you are. I can see it in every post you make...
Please re-read my post.

How much clearer can I make it, that given only two choices.......I think government oversight is better protection for the populace than Big Business. :shrug:

No, its because the politicians, with no term limits, know they can stay in office as long as possible and collect these big bonus from the big companies.

Its quite simple to fix. Big Business- lobbyist- special interests... Kick them the hell out of DC.

Politicians...

Sounds to me as if you don't hold them responsible for any of there actions. "Its ok, someone paid them... its the people who paid them off that are the bad ones"

So by your reasoning its ok if I kill someone for money... I'm not the bad person, its the person that paid me to do it that's bad...

Got ya! Its clear now.

And after the recent, asinine (IMHO), ruling by the SCOTUS on campaign contributions................how do you propose to put a stop to it?
Why should business not have the same ability to help elect there guy as you and I, or as Peta, or any other right wing group you will bring up???

You cant make one not legal but leave the other one to go at it...



Please re-read my post.

And there in lies the problem with people like you. You want the government to watch out for us... Not the us watching over the government...

Go to France, you will fit in there better.

We are in agreement.

Do a little search and you'll see that I've said the same thing.

You're way off base there.

Politicians want to get elected.

To do so, they have to raise money.......lots of money.

If the entities giving them money do not see a benefit, they stop giving money.

It's pretty simple actually.



Got ya! Its clear now.
A little early to say this (before you read my response above) but, I'll take it anyway. :poke: :D

Agreed.

And that's why I am an advocate that all campaign monies come from a central point......and not from those who are just looking for a quid-pro-quo.



And there in lies the problem with people like you. You want the government to watch out for us... Not the us watching over the government...
And "people like you" have not figured out yet that big business certainly isn't going to look out for your best interests.

You drive a truck that has safety features mandated by regulations. If you get a lemon, you have recourse not from the manufacturers 'big heart.'

You can feel comfortable that the car seat your kids sit in, is not a death trap.

Etc., etc.


Go to France, you will fit in there better.
Ya know, every time I hear the............ "if you don't agree with me, you're un-American" or "should go somewhere else" ......... I know I'm talking to someone with a closed mind. ;)

Yeah, I'm a conservative (aka right winger, because conservative democrat is an oxymoron, you have your blue dog democrats that are supposed to be conservative, but as the last few things that have gone in front of congress just shows they are the lap dogs of Pelosi and Reid) and was misinformed, I wasn't aware that PETA was a right wing orgainization.


How can you say the second statement? You are a cheerleader for Obamacare and want the gov't to watch out for everyone that doesn't have healthcare regaurdless if they can afford it and choose not to or not. Then you say the people need to watch over the goverment, which the majority of people didn't want this crap, but we still got it. How did that people watching over the goverment work out for the 60%+ that didn't want it?

You can feel comfortable that the car seat your kids sit in, is not a death trap.

Etc., etc.



Ya know, every time I hear the............ "if you don't agree with me, you're un-American" or "should go somewhere else" ......... I know I'm talking to someone with a closed mind. ;)
Believing in what you believe in is not being close minded... Its whats wrong with politicians and 99% of the people in government right now. They believe in whats going to get them a buck. Nothing more, nothing less.

I am quite open minded, by telling you to go to France, I am not telling you to get out... But if you don't like the US form of government, and would like to live in a country that does everything for you... Then you would love France... Or Denmark... I mean there is really nothing wrong with 60% taxes on your income is there...

Never said that the government should "do everything for me." ;)

I am quite happy with what I have managed to do on my own.

For whatever reason, you think the answer is to move to another country.

How about I just use my freedom of speech/voting rights to address what I don't like?

What a concept. :eek:

You have it wrong, I am not an advocate for "big government."

I do believe however, that as far as protection for the common citizen..........government is a better choice than "Big Business."

If there were a way to privatize most of the government services, and still protect the common person..............I would be all for it.

A question for you.

Do you think our politicians have become corrupted and indebted by all of the money being poured toward them from government employees..........or by big business?

To believe that if we just let business' run amok and that they will protect us from being ripped off out of the goodness of their hearts..............is pretty naive IMHO. :shrug:
Why can't we protect ourselves? If we screw up we have no one to blame but ourselves. If we succede we can enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Let me do it for myself I am rather a fart smeller....I mean smart feller.

How do you propose to "protect yourself" from unsafe.....vehicles? Child seats? Food? Appliances? Work place?

Etc., etc. :shrug:
