talk about whine..
this is the same blogger who gets upset when the Democratic Party is called "socialists" then he turns around and lables the opposition the "ship of fools" All of this only after crying out that the people do not participate in our government...
At least not the way he wants us to...
which ship of fools is that???
the third party ship...?
I didn't label any party a ship of fools, you just did. I presented the actions of extremists as qualifiers to the ship of fools.
If you want to take it to the extreme and label a whole party have at it. I would expect nothing less from an extremist, thar matey!
So Sov doesn't mind you having a different viewpoint, AS LONG AS IT IS NOT TOO Extreme aka:Conservative
For example CN has a viewpoint of communism that exists no where in the world BUT he is never belittled, mocked or put on a "ship of fools" . It is fairly certain that his Revolutionary ideology is in fact EXTREME.
Lets all participate eh SOV... Communism is OK but Conservatives or Christians do not get the same option???
Just one mans view from this side.
The perception being presented here is that Roberts should be beholding to the ideology of the Party of the President that nominated him for the position, and not to the responsibility and integrity that is expected from the position of Chief Justice of the highest court in the land. Here is more hypocrisy from the right, they throw around the claim of activist judges, and then complain when a judge refuses to be an activist for their cause.
Please show us where in the article you refere to what line calls for Mr. Roberts to stand oon the ideology of the President that nominated him?
Maybe , just maybe your conjecture is based on your line of thinking. I see no where where Mr. Roberts is being called to hold ANY LINE OF IDEOLOGY.
What I read is a comment from a man disappointed in the ruling of the Supreme Court .... PERIOD. I see comments wondering where the left slanted administration is taking us....
JUST one form of the participation Sov calls us to. THEN attacks if we don't agtree with his side...
canative where were you when Sovereign and I were having an argument and he called me a Utopian, a nihilist, an idealist, an extremist, etc. You complain that there is like some conspiracy between us to gang up and argue with you but totally ignore that we're totally at odds with each other on many things.
So please stop with the bs, enjoy the A's beating the Red Sox.
In fact you should feel good, Sovereign used your arguments against me. Like the "it's never existed" argument. Feel special knowing both of you think the same way about communism.
You both should feel good knowing that I share something with both of you.
I still like you both.
Happy Independent's day!
Here is what I have thought we could do.
We all pay, any of us who work 1.45-2 % of every dollar we make is deducted into the medicare/ medicad funds even the poor. Many of us, are also paying into the insurance funds for our personal healthcare. Not only that our taxes are given to private entities for research and development so we can claim that we have the best healthcare in the world. Yet when is the return to the American people on that investment.
Here is how we can do it yes it comes with a cost to ALL of us, raise the cap on the medicare deduction from 1.45-2% to say 4-5% take out the paper pushers being the insurance companies who take 20-30% off the top then decide if they want to pay or not.
We have a medicare system in place that works ask any senior yes it does have some problems but less than the open market. Have a co-pay at time a service set also to a cap, those with less income would pay less those with more income would pay a higher co payment again there is a cap on the co-payments.
Pay the providers directly just as medicare/ medicaid does.
We Limit the amount of bureaucracy with the insurance companies, we limit the amount of time HR people for small business and large corporations dealing with the insurance bureaucracy, Large and small Business having to pay their share to the insurance companies. Along with managing our payments to the insurance companies.
There are solution to these problems that are already in place we just need to make the changes to implement them to there fullest.
So, now we have Healthcare suggestions from the left and from the center. One using a more social driven remedy, and one utilizing a more capitalist remedy. Where are any thought out solutions from those who profess to be from the right?
It is blatantly obvious that there are no ideas or solutions from the right. They have established the fact that they are nothing more than an opposition party with no notion to better or advance the country. The status quo has been proven to be failing the American people, and some action needs to be taken.
The President and his party ran on the notion that they would address the Healthcare issues in this country and they did, all be it alone with no assistance from the "opposition party." To show good faith, the leadership in Congress at the time that the Healthcare reform bill was being written included ideas that were brought forth as solutions by the former Republican Party, and ideas that were utilized on a state level experiment, as the founders had imagined new ideas would be brought forth, by the current candidate for the "opposition party" while he was governor of Massachusetts. We are now told that these Republican ideas and actions are wrong and unConstitutional, and need to be rescinded.
We are told that the "opposition party" has their own ideas for healthcare reform, but much like the new tablet computer from Microsoft to counter the iPad, it appears to only be "vaporware." We are all open to improving the current law, and it seems we are all open to compromise if it will improve the law.
So what are the ideas, and when is someone from the right going to make a suggestion? We do not need solely an opposition to all new ideas, so what is the relevance of the Conservatives if there is no intention of improving that which is deemed in need of improving? And what is the relevance to the Conservative Party if all of their ideas are to be later deemed unConstitutional... by themselves? If they are to be an American political party, should they not bring forth Constitutional ideas in the first place, and should they not say what they mean and mean what they say?
So where are we going???
how about this quote..
Norman Thomas quotes:
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
anything look familiar??
American Socialists Release Names of 70 Congressional Democrats in Their Ranks
Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, August 13, 2010, 4:16 PM
The Socialist Party of America announced in their October 2009 newsletter that 70 Congressional democrats currently belong to their caucus.
More fear mongering and no suggestions. We don't expect more from the right, and we are never let down.
