    Yup. Want equality, there it is.

    Please explain to me how evidence that was retrieved from her own email system sent by her is not fact. And given that information, and its proving that she lied to the American People, not fact? I’m not saying all democrats lie, but I’m saying she did. A lot.

    That irony was fantastic. Reminds me of some senators who are for a gun ban…. hmmm.

    Agreeing with them does not make us unthinking. Here’s a funny little analysis.

    Bernie is doing exceptionally well among college-age and young adults. I couldn’t possibly imagine why… he’s proposing free stuff to that entire age bracket. Talk about mindless following. That’s like asking Homer to say no to a Duff Beer.

    I forgot that disagreeing with someone makes you a racist. News to me. Remind me again who is in charge of the ghettos where minorities live in abject poverty? Every major area like that is run by Democrats. It’s been liberals who have been keeping minorities in poverty, instead of conservatives who wish to elevate those people by providing them jobs. If anyone’s racist, it’s the liberals who keep telling minorities they need the government to support them, instead of teaching them how to support themselves.

    No, treason and harming national security. Here is a news story quoting emails where she had SIPR-based documents and had the same information transferred via NIPR to her private server. Had I done that in Iraq, I’d still be in the stockade. It’s many things, but speculation is not one of them.

    Safeguards won’t protect the commodities market from tanking because OPEC is flooding the market with crude to push prices down. It won’t stop China from manipulating its market, because it isn’t a free market; they are using their workers retirement funds to prop up their market. No… the market is taking it on the chin, and we just have to weather it. And buy stocks now, like NeedaChuckle said.

    You guys really need to educate yourselves before making your ignorant comments.

    Fair enough. I am simply looking at it from the perspective that these drug companies (in particular) invest a lot of their own money to create a drug that could end up on the chopping block because the FDA shoots it down, and that’s millions of dollars up in smoke. These organizations need profit, too, and they need a fair amount of profit to do research and create drugs that may never be approved. I wouldn’t necessarily call it greed of corporations, either, given the number of jobs they provide to the economy. No money coming in, no jobs.

    @ Lonecat
    You do make a valid point. I have always supported a flat tax with no exceptions. But any attempt to “flat tax” the poor would result in a revolt. I will take you at face value to say you know much more about the doctors and their reimbursement structure in Canada than I do.

    I guess what I don’t know is what kind of specialization they have available, and how advanced their research is for new techniques. I am reminded of that story where a PM came to the US for heart surgery. It put a black eye on the Canadian medical system. If they have the best and brightest doctors (not healthcare system, mind you), why did the PM leave? It’s a crisis of faith.

    And I guess I look at the procedures and everything else that is attempted, explored, and tried… you don’t get that with socialized medicine. You don’t get profit-based doctoring that has the ability to push the envelope and identify new techniques. Without a hospital earning a profit and using that profit to fund medical research, the techniques stagnate.

    What was the latest medical breakthrough that originated out of Canadian medicine? I haven’t heard any, but I hear about them all the time from our children’s hospitals, the cancer specialists, and other things that rely heavily on for-profit hospitals funding their work. But I haven’t read any articles about Canadians pushing the envelope and discovering a new drug or new technique that is considered a breakthrough or important development. Am I missing something?

    To be fair, most of the baby boomers and older have busted their rumps and have some of the greatest work ethics our country has seen… certainly better than most of the Millenials and whatever we call the current generation, whose work ethic is closer to what you are describing.

    Honestly, while I blame the baby boomers for the political environment in which we find ourselves, I don’t blame them for wanting the SS that was promised them, that they have paid in their entire lives, and now are being shorted. I blame the bureaucrats who are abusing the public’s trust.
