the constant refrain is that the case for single payer has already "been debated"

what are they referring to?

This is hilarious !

All of you should be glad you don't have to endure a Canadian election, where the most boring candidate wins by endlessly repeating what your accountant says until you want to hide under a rock.

One would think you would, or could think clearer, Dwain. You're in fairly dire physical shape.
They don't like you. They don't care when you die.

Cosmic, re your above response post to Crankster:

Crankster: You deserve what Trump has in store for you tenfold.


Cosmic: I sure hope so.


Sigh, It is true that we live in different worlds, despite similar backgrounds, since I perceive Trump as a rich teenaged bully, that is now living out his geriatric fantasies by kicking butt on those that always despised him for being a stupid, but rich as#@&%e.

Then of course, I hate his tweets. I also can't believe that any woman with a sense of self-esteem, or a decent man, voted for him after his "pussy-grabbing" tape came out. His dodging the Vietnam draft, while currently wrapping himself in the U.S. flag, & his pretended conversion to Evangelical Christianity, also sicken me.

That's just the short list of things I hate about Trump. Like I said, you & I live in different worlds.

Political Science
Randy Newman

Political Science" is a song written and performed by singer-songwriter Randy Newman on his 1972 album, Sail Away. In going along with the theme of the rest of the album, the song is a satire of a particular part of American culture and history, namely its foreign policies at the time. The unnamed narrator describes the state of the world, and suggests, "Let’s drop the big one and see what happens."

Apropos 45 years later,
scary huh.




No one likes us
I don't know why.
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try.
But all around even our old friends put us down.
Let's drop the big one and see what happens.

We give them money
But are they grateful?
No they're spiteful
And they're hateful.
They don't respect us so let's surprise them;
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them.

Now Asia's crowded
And Europe's too old.
Africa's far too hot,
And Canada's too cold.
And South America stole our name.
Let's drop the big one; there'll be no one left to blame us.

We'll save Australia;
Don't want to hurt no kangaroo.
We'll build an all-American amusement park there;
They've got surfing, too.

Well, boom goes London,
And boom Paris.
More room for you
And more room for me.
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town.
Oh, how peaceful it'll be;
We'll set everybody free;
You'll have Japanese kimonos, baby,
There'll be Italian shoes for me.
They all hate us anyhow,
So let's drop the big one now.
Let's drop the big one now.

The rich, they are different.

I got a taste of that in high school when a certain youth, drunkenly wrapped his 16th birthday present, a brand new 1978 Camaro, around a street lamp at high speed.

Daddy gave him another one, 3 days later.

Piece of sh#t.


In his call with Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s widow, Myeshia Johnson, Trump told her, “He knew what was signing up for, but I guess it hurts anyway,” according to the account of Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.), who was riding in a limousine with Johnson when the president called and heard the conversation on speakerphone.

Most military doesn't like politards to begin with.

When we were in Indonesia working for the Vice President, the Army units that we flew in their helicopters hated the Vice President and tried to sabotage his gig .....

misused the military, at least had the wit to not disrespect it, and Obama's behavior was exemplary.


And here is a poll from Military soldiers.

Exemplary?
LOLOLOL.
His actions spoke louder than words.






On Sunday, a poll from Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families displayed the thoughts and sentiments of active-duty military troops about President Barack Obama as he ends his eight years as commander in chief.

The results showed that US service members have an overwhelmingly negative view of Obama — or a neutral view at best.

Overall, 60.3% of Marines, 53% of the Army, 49.6% of the Air Force, and 45.9% of the Navy said they disapproved of Obama — a plurality in each case. Enlisted soldiers and Marines were more likely than officers to disapprove of Obama, by about 4 percentage points.

In total, 29.1% of soldiers said they had a very unfavorable view of Obama's leadership, and 18% said they held a very favorable view.

The poll elicited responses from 1,664 participants. The responses were weighted to better reflect the entire military, according to the poll. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Obama sought to reduce the role of the military during his presidency, with drawdowns in Iraq and Afghanistan and a decrease in the overall size of the force.

Troops interviewed by Military Times said those steps possibly made the US less safe, as the last few years of Obama's presidency have seen the rise of ISIS in Iraq and a resurgence of Taliban aggression in Afghanistan.

I sigh once again for our troll drF, aka the Chief, who posts about me:

Fritzee's world is that of family money and privilege.

Not so, azzhole. I did grow up in fashionable Ketchum/Sun Valley Idaho, but things were different back in the 1950's & early 60's. My father went from working 80 hours a week, running a Chevron Station/auto repair/tow truck business, to a relaxed career running a welding & metal working shop, then drove school bus & plowed snow to survive, at a working-class poor level.

I grew up fishing & hunting for food to eat. My father had a heart-attack & died when I was 20, & our current prosperity is mostly due to Heidi & me pinching pennies, working our asses-off, & investing wisely.

So fuk you, loser!
