Just tell Obama NO......he can’t build enough jails for all of us. It is time we, the people, said no to this group of Commies.

The bigger question is, does he have enough resolve to let the bullets fly because for some people, jail is not an option.

“well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” and the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

Start jailing us Americans because of health care and no more King Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. Their ass will be tared and feathered and out to pasture.

“...suddenly they expect free health insurance.”

The continued confusion between health care and health insurance is starting to irritate me. People don’t want helath isnurance. They buy it because it replaces an unmanageable, unaffordable risk, with an affordable, manageable expense.

People want health care. And if some people expect free health care, why is that, do you think?

That is why it is an all out surge to stop all of the commie politicians who want to control us. It is time for a stand. All the politicians in Boston Harbor would really stink up the harbor.

it just barely passed in the House...
the Senate is ENTIRELY different than the House...
Reid doesn't have NEARLY the control over members in the Senate that Pelousy has in the House.

Oh I see, bammy. the folks who choose not to get helth insurance for whatever reason, are the problem. Not the millions upon millions who are on the government dole already, or the illegal alien who gets more benefits than American citizens. Right.

And who is going to enforce this? Are they going to have cops go door to door serving warrants for not having insurance? That’ll be real popular. Yeah, bring back the debtor’s prisons- just call them insurance prisons this time! This whole country has officially lost its ever-lovin mind.

The perverse thing is that most who would gladly face jail over the issue won’t because we’ll already have “acceptable” health insurance.

“I think the general broad principle is simply that people who are paying for their health insurance aren’t subsidizing folks who simply choose not to until they get sick and then suddenly they expect free health insurance.”

And so paying for their healthcare ***AND*** their room and board makes it better? I don’t get the logic...

No, my friend, not the whole country, only the govt. and many in the media.

IMO, we have the resolve, but we don't have either candidates to replace the sitting Congress, nor do we have someone to lead us into the overthrow.

Chairman Obama: "I think the general broad principle is simply that people who are paying for their health insurance aren't subsidizing folks who simply choose not to until they get sick and then suddenly they expect free health insurance."

Kind of like the principle of people paying taxes are't subsidizing those who don't, but who still expect government handouts.

Think again. There are 41 Dem Senate seats that are not up for election in 2010. Of the remainder that are, eleven are considered 'safe'. That's 52 seats - two more than they need to get this passed.

Do not underestimate the power of the dark side. They will do everything in their power to get this passed. It will take 51 Senators of conviction to keep it from passing; and as it stands now, there are far less than 51. And don't even think about a filibuster. That rule will be done away with by those same 50 Senators.

for retirement - just don't buy insurance.
They will house you in a very low-security “prison” with all of the amenities.

So true. I am contemplating how to effect appropriate civil disobedience in this matter. Rest assured, I’ll think of something.
