  • And then you have those jackass that think they know it all. (anon. 1 & 2)

    probably don't know either, I am going to guess...lol it has to do with working or dealing with people..I too am another not too bright person so don't feel bad.

    Look out for the bad people on here they are called "trolls" where that name came from I don't know. GL

  • socialism is one of the last states before communism. In other words, the government takes over control of everything. They can take over the real estate market, take over the energy industry, take over the banking, control the clothing industry, the auto industry (clue in, they already have), the food industry, the medical industry(they have)....everything is owned and ran by the government. There are no more privately owned businesses or industries.....Countries like MEXICO, CUBA, ....Why do people RUN from those countries to be FREE in America?? If socialism works....then why are they breaking down our borders to come HERE? People lose the will to try because they stay poor in those countries no matter what. BUT, the government has good control of the people..and all of the money! You stay poor..unless you come here but libs want to change that in America!

  • YOU PEOPLE WHO DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA....you better start getting your head out of your butt! It IS happening here. It's been on the Dems table for over 50yrs and they finally got a puppet in the White House to pull it off! They don't care about your damn RIGHTS...if you think they do...you have another thing coming! Alot of the Repub have turned as well.....it's become THE PEOPLE against THE GOVERNMENT! They can keep their damn healthcare reform....I'll keep my right to purchase insurance if I want to or not. All they want is CONTROL over you in the short end of this deal....they've studied books on it, followed manifestos already tried by others.....DON'T BE BLIND. The America you've always known....won't be the America your children and grandchildren live in if you KEEP LETTING THIS GO ON!

  • We all become workers for the government in one way or another. They control EVERYTHING...and they say it's to better the people. LMBO...what they mean is....it's to make everyone so poor they can never fight back and they have you clinched by the shirt collar! They tell you where you can live, where you will work, how much you can earn, what food is available to you, what medical care is available to you....and so on. YOU SHOULD ALL BE SCARED TO FRICKEN DEATH!!! and you're willing to give up what you have now.....FOR A PIECE OF FREE HEALTHCARE......you have that NOW....CALL 911 AND SEE IF AN AMBULANCE DOESN'T COME TO PICK YOU UP AND TAKE YOU TO THE HOSPITAL.. YOU'RE ALL CRAZY!

  • ALL OBAMA IS DOING IS getting you all confused by calling it "health CARE reform" when really it's truly....HEALTH INSURANCE reform. Every single one of us in this country right now has HEALTH CARE! You or even an illegal alien can walk into an ER and get taken care of and be seen by a physician. SO STOP ACTING LIKE YOU DON'T HAVE HEALTH "CARE"!! what you mean is.....you can't afford to buy HEALTH ''INSURANCE""!! That's different altogether......not exactly the same thing at all. Obamas' plan is to run all the INSURANCE companies OUT so they can't compete with the government and then.....they government has met another one of your needs.....except eventually....it won't be the kind of health care system you thought it was! They just want to reach into your HOME and have another means to control you and your family with from now on! Look into it further....it's all in their big plan. They DON'T care about YOU!
