Much like Dude sounds to most of us.dudejcb wrote:Elizabeth sounds young and inexperienced, and has a rather narrow world view.
Perfect description of Obama and I have no idea what his excuse is, but I did here something that really makes me wonder. I told you how his second book made him look naive and unprepared for the job. Never read his first book that was apparently well written.dudejcb wrote:she spouts a lot of nice sounding stuff that doesn't necessarily reflect reality. That's to be expected of the young, restless, and wet behind the ears. But what's your excuse?
The answer is not more freebies. How would that improve things. Why would anybody pay for health insurance if it didn't get you something worthwhile. The answer is to not let the people walk away from their bills. It should be very difficult to walk into the ER without insurance and then walk away from your debt. If you want free treatment, you don't get to leave until you positively ID yourself, and then you are obligated to pay the bills or file bankruptcy if you are broke.dudejcb wrote:In case you guys haven't noticed... pay attention now... when someone shows up at a hospital ER, the hospital must provide medical care even if they can't pay. Whether written in the consitution or not, that circumstance make health care a de facto right. That's just the way it is whether we like it or not. The only question we have before us is how to minimize the burden on ourselves. I've written about that enough and you either refuse to admit reality or simply don't get it. Okay, no law against not getting it. Refusing reality is a psycho sitch. Pick your poison.
What naive world do you live in? There are two reason people are poor that dominate all others. First, you are young. Young people should be poor for awhile. It is a good thing to worry about every nickle. Second is they make bad choices. They had lots of choices and picked the bad ones. Getting knocked up by a worthless human being is a big one. Not going to work day in and day out is another big one. This is the United States of America. You are free to pack up and move anywhere in the entire 50 states and even the U.S. territories. If you have no good choices where you live. Pick up your lazy ass and move. How do you think your famility got where it is? Nearly every American is where they are because their ancestors chose to move their. Detroit Michigan did not have a large slave base. The Poles in rural PA didn't get drug there from Europe. Move. It's America. You can go anywhere you want.dudejcb wrote:Working hard is not a class thing. Plenty of poor people work hard and sacrifice.

That is how you interpret "ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." It only applied to rich people and not poor peopledudejcb wrote:BTW: JFK asked those who could to do for America... ie, help the less fortunate here and abroad. He asked for Americans who could, to sacrifice for the greater good. Liz missed JFK's message altogether... but she's young and doesn't remember or hasn't read enough to know.
