but i couldnt help but feel sorry for him as he slowly dies a little inside
That`s exactly what I was thinking! Wouldn`t it have been fairly easy?
it must seriusly suck to be him, but i would have bood to :P
Obama probably has the better idea, I don`t think he wants to liquidize the private industries.
For me, I think if you want the government healthcare, you can pay into it and that will benefit those that can`t afford insurance premiums. But if you prefer private healthcare, you can choose that and not have to pay into the government healthcare.
Forcing people to do so is wrong. That`s not the government`s job.
Washington Nationals are known for their bad sportsmanship. It`s not surprising that their fans are living up to that reputation.
America is full of socialized services. For example there is a postal service. Similar to the USPS, universal health care would be a cheap (read free) alternative, especially for the basic health care operations. In fact, the USPS will achieve practically all of your delivery needs. But other companies exist in the delivery business, providing different benefits than the universal system. FedEx, UPS, DHL and others are able to successfully survive against the "universal" postal service.
Also, check out the system in England. There is a good country that we don`t worry about being Commies, but they`ve had social health care for years.
WORST. HUMAN. EVER. almost.
Yeah, Middle East and war not surprising
We Brits have a tendancy to throw stuff at the people in charge that we don`t like.
Take our education minister, she was egged while on the way to court to be a witness for when she was egged earlier in the year.
USA: Korea, Nam, Civil War, WW1, WW2, War of Independance, Gulf War 1, Gulf War 2, Afghanistan, Cold War + more.
Meanwhile the only constant battle in the Middle East, the one with the most news, is the Israel Palestine issue. Fed with American Vetoes and 7 Billion $ annually to Israel, the "most successful economy in the middle east" according to the US, and the 4th out of 10 according to math.
Peace in the middle east would be a lot easier without 3 current wars all involving the USA.
What`s the next question? Why is there so much animosity towards the USA? Geeee, I just don`t know.
Rest assured if there was no WWII, it was because Hitler was able to successfully launch his Blitzkrieg. Then, after the final solution, scary enough to say but there may have been no Middle Easterners.
I lied though, there was another way out of WWII. To see Hitler was arming Germany and actually take action and attack him preemptively. Again, the answer is war. Then of course, the economic boost from the war never would have occurred, etc, etc, etc. But the dynamics of the "world of what if" is a discussion for another day.
I enjoy these conversations though, and sorry if I sometimes come across as a douchebag, I can get a little carried away sometimes. :-P
In short, wars produce new technology which are then usually adapted into our lives, stimulating economic growth. The internet, made by the military. The GPS system, military. Each of which have played integral roles in our society and in our economy, especially the internet.
Right now, the technology in this war just isn`t being adapted into a commercial role fast enough. Probably again due the strain on the economy. Like many things in life it is a very vicious cycle.
But, I do know, Hillary is a terrible choice to base a Universal Health Care program.
You do know that she will force, I will repeat, force, every single American to come under the government healthcare. That means you no longer have a choice to private health insurance. You have to go to the hospitals the government tells you to go to, no matter how long the lines are, no matter how bad you are in need of care.
That is 100% Socialism, and very close to bordering on Communism.
Response: Bill Clinton and George W Bush have nothing to argue about who would have done better. Each had their own era, and so it`s impossible to judge who would have done better in the other`s era.
Al Gore would have likely have attacked economic and environmental causes early in his presidency, and I doubt he could have screwed up in the middle east any worse than Bush did (and without prejudice against Iraq for bombing daddy).
As for Hillary, it is my personal opinion that she would be the best choice, if we wish the United States to rank amongst the best education and health providers in the civilized world (hell, even amongst the uncivilized world we aren`t doing well).
So if you want to reach into your bag of tricks and throw out another reason as to why the Iraq War is sooooo terrible, I`d love to see if I can shoot that down too.
Now let`s see if you can wrap your brain around this. WWII was more costly than the Iraq war. Yeah, look at that. Don`t believe me? Read em` and weep.
"Only World War II was more expensive. That four-year war - in which 16 million U.S. troops were deployed on two fronts, fighting against Germany and Japan - cost about $5 trillion in inflation-adjusted dollars." - Source - www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/03/17/MNBVVL9GK.DTL
And yet no one complained about the economic boom of the 1950s. Very strange how that works.
Response: Why the hell would you respect an office that a man who holds no respect with approximately half of our nation can attain?
Second: "it`s become chic to hate Bush"
Response: I realized in 2000 (8th grade) that I disagreed with Bush on most issues, and this was before his doctrines became akin to warmongering.
Third: "One might say there have been two recessions since he has been president"
Response: If even half of our population had taken Macroeconomics, they would realize that taxing the wealthy less will decrease overall economy, while increasing their capital.
and why is Billary losing if they did not have anything to do with today`s problems???
he deserves alot worse than booing
"Hey douche, you`re killing you troops for nothing...and the population of your country hates you because of it...and every country thinks you should recall all the troops....and so do we."
Bush recalls 5000 of them... Thanks!
And good presidents can multi-task. They do not use terrorism to go to war to completely neglect his political duties such as, say, lowering the taxes, promoting the population`s well-being, maybe completing at least one of his campaign promises... But no, not Bush...
Had I been there, I would have boo`ed. Had I been there I would have JFK`ed his ass.
I`m canadian and it`s not illegal for me to say it....I think..oh, just in case "I do not want to kill the president of the United States of America"
Although its not yet official, he may very well have presided over TWO recessions. Republican`s only solution: let rich people pay less taxes, that helps out the country...riiiight, because it worked SO WELL the first time.
I hate him as a president, I respect that he is a decent person, I would never boo the head of our state, no matter how much I disagreed. Respect the office. Tell him to piss off once he`s a private citizen again.
Years go by, Bush knows full well that he`s losing countless numbers of troops to a futile war he is helpless in...
But then it all made sense.
But that didn`t seem to hurt his feelings. He was probably thinking "That`s why at least half of you were close to somebody that died in Iraq...and I`m rich beeitch!"
The Iraq war has cost you Americans $507,037,300,157 (at this time). And you think that isnt as bad as it seems?
I`m neutral when it comes to G-Dubs. I would have voted for him if able in both elections, but if I had I would have slightly regretted it.
My main problem is that the War is not as bad as people think. And most have the War at the top of their Reasons Why Bush Sucks Lists.
I dislike him because he`s not conservative at all when it comes to the economy, among some others too.
BOOOOOOOOO! BUSH SUCKS!
u have to give him some respect at least
and u could tell that he was hating it as he walked out there
Who said he isn`t a horrible president? Are you insane?
and @mr bippy
It`s all a respect thing, realize chances are about 75% of the people there don`t like him but they still respect the office, it`s just weird that ppl actually booed. That really is like Romans booing the emperor during the games in the Colosseum
