IMO most people do not want to have this conversation and will not have it. If they are covered (privately or through medicare/medicaid), those folks will take what they can get. If they are not, they'll do the same but what they "get" will be very little. I don't see how you can get these folks to engage. I think government regulation is the only way to spread the limited resources in an equitable fashion. At least that way all are included and have some input.
Unfortunately my position is interpreted as wanting to "pull the plug on grandma".Comment Posted By HyperIon On 23.11.2009 @ 14:01
When are bloggers (on the right and left) going to stop clogging the intertubes with analysis of Palin? Enough is enough. You (and others) have explained and explained what you like or dislike. Can we just give it a rest and move on to more substantive issues? Even if she does run for office again, there is still plenty of time AFTER she announces to make endless arguments for why it's a good or bad thing. STOP! PLEASE!Comment Posted By HyperIon On 19.11.2009 @ 13:37
RM wote: the real conservative’s favorite MILF
Are you being sarcastic?
Most "real conservatives" I am familiar with do NOT like Sarah Palin (Larison springs to mind) and would cringe at the MILF description.
But these debates about who is a "real" conservative are as stupid as the ones about who is a "real" American.
Yes - of course I was being sarcastic. I am not a "real conservative" as I am told 50 times a week by the "real conservatives."

Me, too. Or maybe just ignorant and determined to stay that way.
But I strongly dislike the "do you hate America?" phrasing. When some folks disagree completely with my POV, I never think they hate their country. This usage was coined and made popular by the pro-war crowd, no? As such it is another attempt by the ignorant (or misguided) to discredit those who differ from them. It needs to fall into disfavor IMO.Comment Posted By HyperIon On 11.11.2009 @ 18:58

I'm a Dem and yet I feel sorry for the party that has only this sentiment to motivate them. Sorry for my country, too, which needs ideas, not silliness like this.
You have the sense of humor of a goat.
Unclench your anus and lighten up, asshole.

I believe the qualifications for the POTUS are given in the constitution. But maybe this is just your way of coming out as a birfer after all.Comment Posted By HyperIon On 17.09.2009 @ 12:18

What is being unable to recognize the difference between "yes" and "Partly, yes. But" a sign of?
An honest appraisal. If you are challenging my integrity, don't. Re-read what I wrote - if you can - and stop taking things out of context. If that is the best argument you can make, I pity you. Your parents spent all that money to send you to school and this kind of juvenile "Aha!" is the best you can do?
I suggest you come back after you graduate - in 6 or 7 years judging by what you've shown here.
