    Very likely because there hasn’t really been anything positive about what this president has done.

    I think the point here is that we have done a lot to reduce our carbon footprint in the past 20 years. We can put out zero carbon and it still won’t charge China and India’s reliance on fossil fuels and their pumping of CO2 into the air. While it may be disgustingly expensive and inefficient for us to transition to green energy, it can be done, though the debt bomb would be massive. China and India are not in the same position, so they will still keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere. So committing economic seppaku by forcing green energy on the US will not stop the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere.

    It’s an allegory about the boy who traded a cow for a magic bean. Obama traded 5 Taliban VIP’s for 1 deserting soldier. 5 guys died trying to find him and bring him home after he abandoned his post and went AWOL, and now we are trading 5 terrorists for 1 deserter. I feel bad for the families of those who died trying to find that worthless sack of crap.

    If your theory of the PPACA being a Republican program is based on Romneycare, you’re making a false assumption. If Romneycare was so great, why didn’t all the other states surrounding it implement something similar? If it’s such a great idea, why didn’t CA implement it? That’s the great design of this nation; it was a social experiment meant to allow individual states try things out, and if it worked well, other states would implement it.

    Romneycare was never mimicked by any of the other states, proving that it was not a success. The fact that no Republicans voted for it means their constituents didn’t want it (after all, conservative people elect conservative representatives). If it were a success, the population of MA would have spiked, people would have been calling for it all along the eastern seaboard. But they didn’t.

    So don’t say it’s a Republican program. If there were provisions inserted for the “Republican’s benefit,” it was a means to try to bribe them to vote for it. But Republicans saw the writing on the wall, saw the bait that was in the trap, and saw the boat anchor that this behemoth was going to become. It’s the reason why the majority of Americans did not, and still do not, support the legislation, even now after years of implementing and planning and … etc.

    And as to the insurers, we shouldn’t be bailing out any private corporation. PERIOD.

    Because clearly the 450% increase in tuition costs isn’t enough to cover their salaries. Pathetic.

    I think this toon is geared towards Obama spiking the ball about how well our government-run healthcare system is working.

    And Old1953, instead of stealing from future generations to pay for VA benefits (aka running up a debt), why don’t we cut duplicative programs, just as a start… somewhere around $200 billion a year in duplicated work just at the federal level. And that’s not even the money that just “disappears” into the ether. I have to laugh that government is allowed to just … lose money. If the government were a business, every accountant from top to bottom would have been fired for how poor of a job they’ve done keeping track of money. It’s ridiculous.

    Valid point regarding the link. I tried searching for its validity (like Snopes, etc), but I couldn’t find it. But even if it is satire, the rest of my comment isn’t. And the rest of my comment isn’t invalid. People on one side of the spectrum (typically liberals, but sometimes conservatives) are so intolerant against intolerance that they become the monsters they are trying to fight.

    The LGBT community wanted to gain validity by being able to discuss and argue their points in a civil manner that supported their cause, but now that it’s been validated, they are more intolerant of those who share opposing views than those parties were against their LGBT status. It’s hypocritical, to say the least. Your opinion had better fall in line with theirs, otherwise you will be branded a homophobe or worse. There is a major difference between supporting heterosexual marriage and being a homophobe.

    Granted, I know there are members of the LBGT community that aren’t this way, but you wouldn’t know it based on the media’s and LBGT community’s response at large. So why do heterosexuals have to walk on eggshells around homosexuals, but the reverse is not true?

    This is where we are headed, folks. We have a right to be who we are, except when it’s in conflict with some delicate-flowered-sensibilities of someone else who pitches a fit. If you aren’t pro-gay-marriage, you are homophobic. If you aren’t pro-abortion, you are anti-woman. If you aren’t pro-welfare-state, you want to stand on the backs of the poor.

    How about if you aren’t pro-gay, you are pro-traditional-marriage? How about instead of pro-abortion, we’re pro-life? How about if you aren’t pro-welfare-state, you are pro-self-reliance? But people think if you aren’t pro-(insert liberal sentimentality here), you are anti-(insert liberal sentimentality here, only with ugly words).

    How would the liberal press react to the reverse? If you aren’t pro-life, you are anti-life? If you aren’t pro-traditional-marriage, you are heterophobic? If you aren’t pro-self-reliance, you are pro-moochers? See how ugly that is? But why is it okay if the reverse is said? Just because we disagree doesn’t mean you can be ugly about it.

    Who determines what is right and what is wrong? Liberals are focused on outcomes, and conservatives are focused on opportunities. We each have our own opinions on how to make things work. Picking on one donator or another on either side of the aisle is disingenuous and hypocritical unless you include both sides. They both play the game. The difference? The liberals are permitted, by the media and the general public, to slander and demean conservatives, but conservatives have to tip-toe around what we’re really thinking so we don’t get labeled racists, bigots, etc.

    Apartheid was where native-born south africans were being segregated, and whites were the only ones allowed to vote. They had signs of White and non-White. It draws quite a few parallels with our civil rights movement.
