You just keep getting worse and worse at this. My post was attacking her for her politics. I added in a little shot at 4mer for his post above. Are you going to alienate everyone who disagrees with you? I can see why DR has told you to ***** off. I'm ready to second that motion.

 

GI Jane and CILF. 

 

You telling me to ***** off wouldn’t trouble me too much. Somehow I’d sleep well tonight.

Kid,

 

Thank you.  By the way i was not challenging you on it I just wanted your thoughts so I can go back and look for myself.  Like I said I am trying to keep an open mind on this stuff and want to look at the facts.

 

I dont like Trump the person....I dont think that is really going to change........but work performance has to be taken into consideration.

 

Please do.....I responded exactly as I feel. 

 

I don't like him as a person either.  He is the very last POTUS in my lifetime I would like to meet or share a meal with.  But that is a really, really, bad test for POTUS.   We need a strong leader who makes smart decisions and he is doing that.  I don't give a ***** what he thinks or twitters about a dead Senator. That has absolutely no bearing on my life or anyone else's.

 

And now compare him to the wack-job alternatives.  Warren and her 'reparations' nonsense?  Harris, looking to build on Obama's race war strategy for her own benefit?   All of them with this 'original sin' concept for white people (is all that privilege making your life cushy these days John?), and this whole undercurrent of 'socialism good, capitalism bad' while we sit here at place of peace and prosperity that is light years beyond what has been achieved anywhere else in the world, ever, is just insanity at a level that is hard to comprehend.

This is where the earlier comments I made about trying to stop looking at politics as Dem v GOP or Conservative v Liberal/Progressive et al. 

 

There's the establishment uniparty - which favors regime change, perma war and all the perks those policies give the establishment (control over the people, government, while inflating the contractors' budgets) - then there's everyone else. Tulsi has made her bones in Congress opposing those policies - but the "left" can't hit her on being against perma war (because until Trump, the "left" was against perma war) so instead they use their favorite weapon: identity politics. 

 

She made comments about being opposed to gay rights, years ago - at the same time Biden, Obama, Clinton, and others in the left were touting the same anti-gay marriage lines Tulsi made - so they buried her with it. 

 

Because identity politics isn't about ending racism and bigotry, it's about weaponizing and exacerbating them.

I assume by The "left" you mean the Clinton DNC wing?  Bernie is the left, and that wing has always been anti-war.

TPS.....excellent!

 

I work and live here in Riverside.   I live downtown riverside close to the Mission Inn.   You probably know where that is.

 

There is just something about Tulsi that I could really get behind......like I would literally help in her campaign office if I could I want her to succeed that much.

 

I hate the research I am finding how the democrats tried to shame and shun her for throwing her support behind Bernie Sanders.   Who has some very radical ideas but I like him a LOT more the Hillary Clinton who just seems fake and toxic to me.

 

 

I assume you've been to Mario's?  I know the chef-owner (and his brothers) very well.

I don't have any family left there as my siblings have all moved elsewhere (one sister is in San Diego though). 

 

Tulsi also stepped down because of the DNC's bias against Sanders.  She has integrity that is found in many politicians these days.

Correct, "left" = uniparty = Clinton/Bush cabals.

So, what we've learned from John's thread is he likes the way TG talks, and probably how she looks. And that's the reason he wants her to be president.

 

Well-mannered thread, but eh, what?

John is a stand up guy so I'm sure he'll be back.  I for one engaged him how he requested so I'll be disappointed if I don't see a thoughtful response.   

Hopefully he won't get lost in the all the spam from the usual nitwits that most of us have on ignore.

Well, I've asked him a few times how TG would come up with the 3.2T dollars needed per year to pay for medicare for all.

How do yall pay for it BigMcD?

 

Part of the 3.2 could come from stop paying for things like Medicare, Medicaid, VA and roll it all into Comprehensive Insurance for all.  Presently the government pays for 60% of all health care now.  I probably wouldn't like it because I go to VA and get excellent care.

 

Would be great for small bidness if they didn't have to pay ridiculous premiums for their employees.

 

You pay for it one way or the other.

I'd need to understand the numbers better, but I actually could be convinced to get on board with Medicare for all because the current system of having it go through employers is completely ***** and taxpayers end up footing the bill for millions of exceptions anyway.

 

If you looked at the total dollars employers pay for employee medical benefits (I couldn't find that number in 30 seconds of looking), I bet you could get most of the way to your $3.2B.

T. Not B. 

 

You'd be doubling the federal budget with one program. That WILL require a massive tax increase. Not only that, there will still be individual premiums. Ask anyone on Medicare.

😂 actually it was to divert all the money Trump pays off women with. Figure that should do it. 😃

No crap. 

 

This is one of the things that irks me about this whole Medicare for All slogan.  Medicare is not free.  I've gotten to the age where I needed to start looking into it for planning purposes.  If you want it to cover things like regular insurance does like prescriptions etc., you gotta BUY part C I think it is which is hundreds of dollars a month.  Then you still got co pays.

 

What I think what they really mean is comprehensive health reform which was a slogan that didn't work so well last time, so they are giving it a new name that sounds cool.

Gabbert has zero chance. Harris/Sanders/Biden have a chance. Beto is the odds on favorite. He's got that Obama like charisma that will win over the common folk. He's vague on policy, but Trump proved that policy really doesn't matter. Build a wall? Move the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem? Meh. I'm sure there are a few more examples , but we're gonna replace Obamacare with something "much better" miraculously got him elected. Policy is irrelevant in 2020.

Does anyone know how Canada can get by giving their population "free" healthcare?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shittycare and wait times plus we in the USA take care of most of their defense expense.

I like how people also conveniently forget that their population is 1/10th of ours. Lot easier to provide coverage for 33 million than it is for 330 million.
