Well what were you trying to say in your mar. 27 11:40 pm post? Were you referring to the 9-11 terrorist attack? What terrorist attack were you referring to that the news media gave more coverage to American Muslims than they did the actual act of terror usblues?

Well Blues that most certainly is YET another bet you would lose. My advice to you would be to stay out of betting parlors. You aren't very good at that game either.

......and at the same time you are saying that Anwar al-Awlaki, who is a citizen of the United States, who has chosen to participate in those very acts of terrorism against his own country, be treated with kid gloves.

Well now mark that is quite a statement you just made. YOU seem to be saying that since Mohammedan's, who were citizens of a foreign state, where responsible for the attack on September 11, 2001, that it is OK and expected that followers of that faith, who are citizens of the United States, be harmed in return.

Dos thinks because the information didn't make it through his filter and up the hole he lives in called Obama's arse that it isn't true.

Little lesson for the pee_ons out there like dos. Your position, your job gives you zero insight on the actual business world. You are not part of the decision making, budget making group. You are the order takers (fitting you are all democrats). Once all the decisions have been made all the math worked out, logistics worked out you come in and screw a bolt on a widget or throw powder into a mold.

We employed on average 50 carpenters and laborers, we have scaled back a dozen or so. The new expense budgets for our clients have shrunk, bid projects are down. We get those memo's dos, you don't.

Wait a minute YOU made the statement, YOU made the claim, That said WE have seen the cutbacks WE have seen the pain of OUR employees sitting at home already. I simply asked you where you have seen the cutbacks, where have you seen employees sitting at home because of a health care program that isn't even fully functioning yet. Frankly marmel I don't believe you. Where has this taken place.

I see that every one of the Obama bashers skirted the Question of how THEY would have handled the situation with Anwar al-Alwaki. Usblues tried his no0rmal little cutie pie smart mouth routine but as always he didn't have the spine to answer the question. The rest of the people, excepting goneforgood, who said he had no problem with Anwar being taken out, just ignored the question BUT continues to CRY and MOAN about it. STEP RIGHT UP CHILDREN AND TELL US WHAT YOUR PLAN WOULD HAVE BEEN, marmel, manditorymullets, and usblues.

I also have a son that I love very much. My job relie very, very heavily on the healthcare industry. We have seen the cut backs, our workers have felt the pain of sitting at home already. We have heard the rumblings from the top brass in the hopsitals that 10-20 cutbacks are here to stay because of Obamacare or "new healthcare requirements and costs". This will have a direct effect on your quality of care, the rate of medical advancement, availibilty of fast reliable service. It also puts my ability and many others ability to provide for their family at risk. The tentacles of this bill reach WAAYYYYY further than providing care for pre existing conditions.

Not telling you it his his fault. Telling you that this plan will, in the long run make him and every single other American worse off. They will ration care, the dynamic is in the bill. There will be doctor shortages, longer waits and lesser quality of care. The quality we have enjoyed is gone. Cost will increase drastically, this is not new information, even the new york times is reporting it. Then what will happen to him once he is off your coverage, he may qualify for assistance, he may not. Will he than purchase his own or pay the fine??? The new plans sanctioned by Obamacare are more expensive than most plans you used to be able to get. That doesn't even take into account the 20% to 100% premium increases. On top of all that people who have begun applying for subsidized government plans are finding out they may not even qualify even though they are poor.

The devil is in the detials of this bill. I am afriad the goodies that were sold don't begin to tell the story.

And finally to my friend Marmel, with whom I usually agree: My son is not on welfare and doesn't receive any government aid, nor does he want any. He works at a company that accepts his physical challenges. He is paying his own way through college via scholarships and his job, not accepting a dime from his family. He is a good kid. It's not his fault he has this physical challenge. However, in today's economy, employers know that they don't have to offer benefits because, the economy is so bad, it's not like good prospective employees can go somewhere else and get them. You can post a job for $8 an hour and no benefits, and you'll have a line of applicants a mile long.

Marmel, with all due respect, my 24 year old son is uninsurable at any cost. He was due to come off my hospitalization plan when he was 21, but thanks to Obamacare, is back on until he is 26. Hopefully by then he will have a job that has benefits. This is a young man with a college education who does not live in this area, so please don't say he should move to find a job. He works full-time and is going to taking night and weekend classes for his master's degree. Hopefully, before he 26, he will find an employer who pays benefits and a living wage.

And you guys know me. I tend to be conservative on most issues, liberal on some, but this one hits real close to home. I am definitely willing to pay a few more dollars for my insurance so people like my son, who are currently uninsurable, will be able to get health insurance.
