Comments on: Shutdown: A fight with no room for compromise http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/10/02/shutdown-a-fight-with-no-room-for-compromise/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: HamsterHerder http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/10/02/shutdown-a-fight-with-no-room-for-compromise/#comment-76968 Mon, 07 Oct 2013 10:31:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=24627#comment-76968 If the screeching Progressives writing for Rooters, and those commenting here, want to turn this political controversy into a religious war then there is no telling were this fight stops. As much blood as you have dripping from your mouths already one would think you’d would be a least briefly reflective in the matter.

You clowns actually think you can just completely dismiss the honest expression of political opinion by 30-40% or more of the nations population with the snap of your fingers and an edict from the White House?

Foolish. Stupid, even. And not gonna happen. Home boyz.

You morons haven’t figured out the nature of the problem, and until you do this will continue to escalate. This isn’t about health insurance or debt ceilings or any of that. This is about disenfranchisement. This is about marginalization. This is about the unlawful usurpation of power.

This is about the kind of disenfranchisement and marginalization and usurpation that is guaranteed NOT to be allowed in this country by virtue of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Proceed now, please with your inanities and stupidity, please. The argument will continue until Mr. Obama and the Progressive leadership cease and desist from their scorched earth tactics.

Every good business owner is aware that they need to examine each department separately for efficiency and quality control. That is how you get the most profit from your investment. We The People want to look at the peoples business that is our HOME LAND called AMERICA. We want our finances and business models and systems examined for quality control, so we don’t get fleeced further into G-zero. We like American sovereignty, that was a gift from GOD to US. We need to tend to our garden and our soil or the pests, weeds and rouge chickens (multi-national corporations aka plantation owners) will destroy it. Business and Farming 101.

You can have what they think you are entitled to. A physician treating their patient has sovereign domain over health care. The scammers need to get the he!! out of the way of health. The insurance company employee with a high school education or GED gets to sit in between that sacred relationship and argue and tell the doctor what to do! Are you kidding me? You really think this is appropriate? Plato and Socrates PLEASE HELP.

For instance, the Reps. are not simply calling the Obama Care unconstiutional, there are legitimate reasons for concern with the ACA… I am glad someone is addressing it. Because, a bankrupt government is trying to fund a huge health care system, in beaucratic style that only reminds me of the efficiency and monetary responsibilty of the IRS, for supposedly millions upon millions of individuals, without any care to its effect on the medical institutions and on the tax payers that bear the weight. For example, many hospitals have sold, and health care practices. I site Kaiser Permenente in Ohio as one. Lots of people lost their jobs. True fact, look it up. Also, in the spirit of American equality, and not oligarchy or communism reminscent of the KGB… why are government officials and special intrest groups exempt from Obamacare again? I mean, if its good enough for the American people who are breathing human souls with the same value as the POTUS, why is not good enough for him? I don’t know, when someone serves me a drink they won’t drink… I just don’t trust it, you know what I mean? Somethings up.

Secondaly, its true, it doesn’t matter if the US Court decides something is Constitutional… by law that means that it is “deamed” as Constitutional, but in principal and ideology? Its a nine panel justice system, that should be voting on the ligitimacy of a law, however, nine people are fallible, the courts are only as good as the judges or juries they are made up of.

Thirdly, yes, people are skeptical of the ACA… polls show. And some places are claiming the Obama Care is already out of money… well heck, the government is out would make sense if the ACA would be too.

Also, why is a conservative republican considered a tea partier? Proof? Tea party is its own entity, and was not apart of the republican party. It has tried to not be annexed or absorbed into the Republican party, to be able to give a voice and support for those constituents that do not agree with either party and wanted a third party representing their ideology… they are not republican. Regardless of how they are painted. However, some republicans and maybe dems or independents may agree with their stance. But its not the Tea Party organizing this.

And on top of that, the author claimed the gridlock was a rule of the minority… and we have a problem with this why? I mean, lots of minorities in our country have taken power and want their voices heard, vast minorities even. Minority races, minority sexual orientation, minorities religious or non-religious sects. You name it, and we accomodate it… but not when its for the Republican party? Hu. Polls say most people believe in God, but we certainly don’t show that in our government funded schools or law. Clearly, we don’t follow majority. This may sound a little out of context, but our laws and policies accomodate the minority, why not in this issue? In fact, we bow down to the minority… all in an effort for Political Correctedness mind you. I guess what Im saying is, if you don’t want minorities to have power, don’t give it culturally to anyone… in minority. Let majority rule.

However, I think we should give some lead to the minority, because, majority isn’t always right, and sometimes the minority is the sane group and need to be given power as well… thats why we have the Senate, to give voting power to the little guys.

Some thoughts. I understand this is an opinion article, but I fear some are treating it as an article of fact.

Why? Because they claim we spend too much money in the government, the government is too big. By throwing 800,000 federal workers out of their jobs during this shutdown, those government employees will be home instead of working, possibly collecting unemployment and then possibly getting paid once this dumb shutdown is over. It’s going to cost the taxpayer so much more money than by just doing the right thing and sending in a clean bill on the continuing resolution. It makes no sense for republicans to continue on this way.

The body has so little discernment, most people would consider it a compliment.

So, perhaps if we just promise to whip them a couple times a day that will suffice for them, and their followers, who also want the pain.
