I’m no Liberal. Nor am I a conservative. I watch Fox News and I see anti-liberal, anti-moderate, anti-Democrat rhetoric. I see outright lies. I see conservatives attacking others.
I watch CNN and I shake my head there as well. I find all of the modern major news outlets to be distasteful. But you wouldn’t understand that because you chose to make a sweeping generalization about me because I stated some facts.
I see conservatives running their cars into groups of protesters. I see conservatives supporting concentration camps and separating families. I see conservatives engaging in racist, sexist, and homophobic behavior. AND WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT ABOUT ABORTIONS! I NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
I don’t let political parties dictate my thoughts.
I find it rather sad that you claimed to not make this political and YET YOU DID! You claim others are lying because the truth goes against your narrow viewpoint of the world and yet you can provide no facts to the contrary.“but all the comments you see on these blogs are liberals and democrats attacking Trump and Republicans” Really? I see quite a large number of comments on blogs attacking those that aren’t Republican. Do you remember when Obama was president? Conservatives were attacking him constantly and now that your’re on the receiving end you have to cry foul. Pathetic.
Of course, I know no matter what I say it won’t get through that stubborn skull of yours so I am now officially done with you.
@hariseldon59, you are correct. Political parties do change in their ideologies over time. The KKK support Republicans now, In fact, they have been doing so for decades. I remember seeing the flip occurring back in the 80’s. Unfortunately, it’s clear hk is one of those individuals who does not understand that and actually chooses to ignore recent history and events. I mean, look at their argument – from 1961 – while ignoring the 2016 election when the KKK was supporting Trump.Heck, they even argue how liberals don’t like opposing viewpoints yet it is the conservatives who are the ones who begin the attacks on those that don’t share their point of views. It’s the conservatives who resort to the name-calling and bullying. It’s the conservatives who threaten physical violence. I am speaking from both personal experience and what I have observed with others. I have had disagreements on both ends and only the conservatives called me names and threatened to cause me physical harm.
Um, yes, Social Security is socialistic. It is a government-funded program we pay into to fund those that are currently collecting (not unlike your claim regarding the AHA). So again, if you are against socialistic programs you will not be collecting Medicare and Social Security. And you are the one quick to judge. I am not a liberal. I am a moderate. I also do not subscribe to any political party. And I am well aware who pays for the programs. I also am not blind to the fact that the tax burden on the middle class has increased since while the tax burden on the rich has decreased since Reagan. But, as usual, from my observation, many conservatives think anyone who disagrees with them are liberals. And as for your claim about the AHA – it is about making insurance affordable for those people who could not otherwise afford it, like the working-class poor, or for those whose employment does not provide insurance.It’s interesting that I know several other people who have made the exact same claims you have made (3 children, 17 fosters, 40 years on same doctor, 67% increase) and yet every one of them was proven to be less than honest so I do have a right, based upon experience, to question anything you say.Oh, and by the way, private insurance has always been, on average, more expensive that insurance obtained through work. As You are comparing apples to oranges.I am done with you – you continue to believe what you want.
Your issues are with Medicare – not the AHA. They are two separate, unrelated programs. The boggest problem Medicare has with AHA was it was never updated to account for it. Medicare has had its issues for a long time now – the issues people such as yourself complain about have existed long before the AHA.. (And there is NO law that forces a person onto Medicare and off of their regular insurnace – that is a decision of the insurance company.) In fact, if it weren’t for the AHA several family members would not be able to afford insurance. A good example is an uncle of mine, Vietnam vet – lost a lot of his VA benefits under Reagan and both Bushes. THe AHA came along and he was able to get the health coverage he had lost. Yes, he’s on Medicare and he was not forced to end the insurance he got under the AHA.
Premiums have been on the rise for decades. I know for a fact that your premiums did not rise 67% as a result of Obamacare as NO PREMIUMS WENT UP AS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE AFORDABLE HEALTCARE ACT. If your premiums went up it’s because your insurance company chose to raise them, most likey due to excessive claims.If you’re so against socialist programs then you won’t be collecting Medicare or Social Security as they are more socialist programs than the AHA.
She was just doing what she was taught by her Republican predecessors, that’s all.
It’s funny – I see members of both parties interjecting politics into comic strips and yet the Republicans are the first to resort to name-calling.
Drumpf just goes and grabs them – he doesn’t even ask if their interested.
As did Reagan and both Bushes.
How much did Reagan pay? How much did both Bushes pay?
