Re: Who Benefits from Obamacare in 2014?

Burying your head in the sand and becoming disengaged isn't going to change anything.  If you're buggered by my assertations (which are all fact-based), that just seems to illustrate the kind of psychological issues and cronyism we're all up against to successfully reform the system.  It's hard to ...

Re: What should we aim for with medicine?

Reub wrote: Stone, as with everything else, we should aim that everybody gets their "fair share" when it comes to medicine.
Would that be "fair share" based on earning it or "fair share" based on being entitled to it because one breathes?  Just asking.

Re: Obama's Last Stand

It ain't over 'till the fat lady sings, But, will MO be there singing "Do what I say, wah do, wah do - not what I do, wah do, wah do, when chowing down on the Reeses"?  Or will Hillarious Hillary be there saying "It's my responsibility that I told all those differing versions of the story so BO woul...

Re: An America eternally 'at war'

You have to admit though that us having guns makes us more likely to shoot someone than not having one would. Now, we probably agree that some people need to be shot (which is why we own guns), and at that point you're talking about the user and not the tool. But without the tool, there wouldn't be...

Re: What should we aim for with medicine?

Wow, BearBones .... you said it much clearer and better than my attempt.  Thank you and my very best wishes. ... Mountaineer No it would not. No offense, but I don't want God in my medicine, thank you very much. Ideally, it would not even be a part of this conversation. I don't think that was the po...

Re: What should we aim for with medicine?

I believe the goal of "medicine" should be to improve ones physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as measured by the individual desiring the improvement.  If each of us continually grow in those four dimensions, the process will be self-correcting.  Ideally, the deliverers of that "med...

Re: What's wrong with this picture....

I am a Christian and my hope is that all will hear the Good News and be saved. Re: What is wrong with this picture..... My beliefs:  ALL of us are sinners from conception forward and inherently rebel against God.  Thus, why should it surprise anyone that some "good" people do bad things, and some "b...

Re: VP debate

My take: Biden - rude, disrespectful, fake smiles, fake smirks, apparent intent to pull "facts" from his behind and sound smart, seemed extremely unprofessional - most Little League coaches display better leadership qualities.  I am mystified how Biden can say that his personal faith believes life b...

Re: Bring On The Debates

Re: US Plummets In Economic Freedom

Sort of on topic re. our "mess". This is a non-partisan video produced by an accountant, Hal Mason, retired after 27 years with IBM. He looks at the budget, its revenues and expenses, and very simply illustrates the problem. Amazingly, we get all the media talking heads blathering and shouting for h...
