" but am I getting more healthcare per dollar? No ... "
Did your health insurance costs go up 131% in the last decade?
They did the decade prior.
Dirk is a frigging idiot, devoid of reason.

Do you pretend to be a decent person in your day to day life? Or do you just get shuffled into a quiet corner at social gatherings?
This is the type news story that makes everyone look bad. The parents. The US government. The politicians using these desperate families as pawns. The activists on both right and left pointing fingers. Try to just feel sad that an innocent little girl died under horrible circumstances. And once you actually absorb that bit of sadness, take a step back and think about how reasonable acting adults both inside and outside of government could have prevented it.
Danni's need to inform everyone what her philosophical beliefs are in this thread is puzzling.
Did anyone ask what they were or say what they were incorrectly?
But it's still not an automatic DQ, for you. #37 | POSTED BY SNOOFY
Not at all... I mean I was Obama 08 and Romney 12, and they had nil non-political public service experience. GWOT veterans haven't made the step from congress to the big stage yet, but I'll be over here repping Tammy Duckworth any day. She's a badass.
My dad was a paratrooper in the south pacific. he fought primarily in New Guinea. one of the few stories i ever heard him tell was about these folks. getting ready to start the day and there's a commotion he noticed, a bunch of the fellas grouping up, pointing and talking about something. Maori scouts had come into camp and what everyone was checking out was the sacks of japanese heads they had with them.
Wow, is this the typical misleading supposed truth the left are using now? It appears now one here on the left actually did any follow up to verify the validity of their lying story. And to think, they hate the Right leaning media for this exact same but it is OK cause it comes from left.
Every comment from these lefties should be apologizing for the error.
"After being force marched for days without food or water by the need to flee a homeland devasted by poverty and violence due to generations of brutal exploitation."
FTFY. Also, thanks for proving that compassionate conservatism is well and truly dead.
Hey Nulli, the thing about dragging children screaming from their parents... that's from the Heart Sutra, right? I mean you're the expert...
Place in a CAGE and abuse to death
After being force marched for days without food or water by her parents.
Why would parents be so cruel...
It is disgusting to use this when so many facts point to the government doing everything possible to help, when the parents were so negligent.
"Father of 7-year-old who died in CBP custody says agents did everything they could to help her, has no complaints."
"You're a liar who is trying to exploit this tragedy for political purposes: unlimited mass migration and cheap labor. Disgusting."
Unlike you, freak, I believe in labor laws and am not afraid of migrants to the point of blaming them for dying in the desert.

I remember that fundraiser for veterans. The list of veteran charities that were supposed to get the money from Trump reported that they never received a dime. Eventually they sued Trump. It took a long time and I recall that the checks were eventually doled out in small dribs and drabs. One of the charities that sued was Wounded Warriors who, incidentally, were themselves found guilty of grifting from their own charitable foundation with high salaries and lavish trips. Go figure.
"Pathetic. That's like blaming EMTs for someone dying in their ambulance from gunshot wounds."
Did the EMTs create the situation that caused the injury and then fail to render treatment once the victim was placed in their charge? Because if so, then yes the comparison is completely apt, you child abuse enabling piece of human garbage. Who would Buddha place in a cafe and abuse to death?
--The child didn't die in their custody, you hack.
Pathetic. That's like blaming EMTs for someone dying in their ambulance from gunshot wounds. What a hack.
"I am an agnostic. It's the only non-religion that makes any sense to me because none of us really know if there is a God or not."
Might want to invest in an etymology dictionary there, comrade.
Parents fault all the way. Clear cut case of child abuse. Parents should be prosecuted.

- that line
Not a line, a fact.... well, if you can even tell fact from fiction after all your Trump indoctrination.
Awwww... ain't love grand? Nulli defending the defenseless little lady. What a man!
- smells like herring left in the sun for a week.
Wow... you eat like an alley cat, eh?
And while we are at it, defending someone who accuses parents whose children have been murdered of being crisis actors is almost as despicable as the original putrid lie.
Yeah Orrin, we should stop health care so a-holes like you can horde more money. Just go away! You hateful weasel!
"giving money in exchange for political favors" is why people make contributions. Sometimes they get all their paperwork in order and sometimes they don't.
3rd time today that Corky has trolled Mackris with that line. The desperation smells like herring left in the sun for a week.
Bill Hicks/Alex Jones needs to be deported. The guy is a traitorous subhuman piece of human excrement.
Yeah, you and Trumpy, real winners.
"You want tall, attractive and rich white guy when it comes down to it. And you call the GOP racists, I see what you did there."
That should go down in DR history as humiliatingly classic lameness... the last two Dem candidates being either female or multi-racial.
You should stick to something your are good at like accusing parents of dead children of being crisis actors.
"Former Vice President Joe Biden holds the pole position in the first CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll among likely 2020 Democratic caucusgoers, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke joining him as the only possible candidates in the field with double-digit support.
The new Iowa Poll finds 32% of likely caucusgoers saying they back Biden as their first choice, 19% Sanders, 11% O'Rourke, 8% Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 5% California Sen. Kamala Harris, with the rest of the 20-person field testing below 5% support."
OK... so I guess Mackris had met his match in the unintelligible post category.
Of course, Andy is rwingnut trust fund baby from way back who actually benefits personally from Trump's feed the rich policies. Hbrat is just some fool mark who fell for Trump's con.

That's right, you stupid moron: the geist of the argument is how to re-introduce slavery. What we need to do is add more Neo-liberal policies to create a New World Order that busts unions, reduces wages, and raises taxes to pay for little homeless waifs their home countries would rather field execute, and wages pointless wars to create more little homeless waifs. And why not amputees.
#13 The responsibility lies with the parents and the open borders garbage.
BS the fault lies with our new and improved migrant greeting committee.
Wow. No wonder Andy buh-lieves in Sandy Hook crisis actors.... he's incredibly naive.

You can still do a Haka? Neat, some forms of toxic masculinity are still cool with people.
Is this the most intense haka EVER? 3,258,764 views Rugby League GBU Published on Nov 13, 2017
I've seen it a few times - apparently it's a part of every New Zealand rugby match.
Every effective warrior culture probably realized psychological warfare is an extension of mental conditioning. Some rituals do have a "Woodbeast or die" quality, and very commonly include drugs, chanting, story-telling and sacrifices.
I understand that Cohen was just a vice grip in Mueller's tool box but Cohen's long history of scams and deceit should have earned him more than three years in the pokey. Cohen claims he's accepting responsibility for his actions but in the meantime, he's trying to whittle those three years down as low as he can get it. That's NOT accepting responsibility!
No, he will just completely misconstrue some post of yours in hopes that you engage him.
It's lonely down in Moms basement.
The Haka is from the Maori culture of New Zealand, but all I have to say is that he has fun doing it and it is fun to watch - so just enjoy.
Thank you NULLI
Although I disagree with almost everything you post, and often wonder why an otherwise nice person (I remember your arguments with Goatman) would say such things, I understand, support and agree with everyone's absolute right to their opinions.
"The same could be said for any other service that you have to pay someone for."
I mean, I guess.
What's your point?
Maybe the Dems should offer him any net proceeds that Mueller generates be dedicated to his Mexico wall.
And then let him take credit for thinking of the idea first.
-Laughable, ridiculous and highly speculative. But that's what we do here, isn't it? And we're not important enough to have any sway in the final outcome. So I view our venting here, on any subject, as no harm, no foul
Winner of today's Moment of Clarity award.
The issue ins't the quality of care, it's the lack of access to care for those without insurance.
The same could be said for any other service that you have to pay someone for.

"If there is no answer to the question, then the premise of the discussion 'There's Only 1 Way Out for Trump Now' is laughable at best. "
Laughable, ridiculous and highly speculative. But that's what we do here, isn't it? And we're not important enough to have any sway in the final outcome. So I view our venting here, on any subject, as no harm, no foul. If it's out there, it's fair game.
"Fd up to see Americans celebrate their fellow citizens not being able to have health care."
Conservatives in other parts of the world don't want to take away their fellow citizens health insurance. Well, maybe in the UK. But not in any country that doesn't drink the Capitalist Kool-Aid.
"You pay more for private health insurance than you would for government health insurance.
Yeah, the private sector quality is a little worse.
"Uncle Tom/Ruckus was on the side of the master, the one who was oppressing and slaving.
Republicans are overwhelmingly non-Hispanic white, at a level that is significantly higher than the self-identified white percentage of the national adult population. Just 2% of Republicans are black, and 6% are Hispanic.
You want tall, attractive and rich white guy when it comes down to it.

How tall is Hillary?
Then there's the matter of that Black guy. The one from Kenya.
You pay more for private health insurance than you would for government health insurance.
And there's a quality difference too.
You can't implement a socialist health plan in capitalist America.
You can implement anything if it's paid for.
"Steele neither evaluated nor synthesized the intelligence."
No, he was a weapon chosen and pointed by Hillary. That's pretty damn obvious now.
"If there's enough hypocrisy that Nulli can point it out in every thread ever...shouldn't that tell you something?"
Yeah, it should tell you that Nullifidian is a huge fan of the Tu Quoque logical fallacy.
And, apparently, so are you.
I've heard too many recordings of Cohen's threatening phone calls (on behalf of Trump) to believe that the words and the language he used fell within the range of normal legal representation. He sounded and acted like a thug or a mafia muscle man, threatening the life and livelihood of anybody who dared speak out against Trump.
He's still very much a villain in my view and his crocodile tears after the fact are meaningless.
you two have the same exact outlook towards black people.
Actually, I dont. Uncle Tom/Ruckus was on the side of the master, the one who was oppressing and slaving.
I'm against the one who is oppressing and enslaving, the democrats.
I'm for my black race all day.

This is the thread where Nulli avoids discussing the merits of anything and resorts to lame, tired personal "hypocrisy" attacks.

including one bill that would require permission from the state Legislature before the state's executive branch could make waivers or changes to public assistance programs, including work- and drug-testing requirements for "able-bodied" adults.

This is not to prevent the new governor from making changes. It is to prevent him from undoing the changes Walker made using the very power he took away from Evers
Some baptist groups openly advocate wife beating and child beating. A former coworker bragged openly about 'whupping' his wife when she disobeys. Luckily the mandated reporter at the school got his ass sent to prison where he belongs

At what point should we become concerned that Pres Trump no longer puts the national interests of the United States ahead of his own personal interests when he deals with Pres Putin?

"I am who I am," he said. "I laid out my vision for Texas and this country over the last two years without taking a single poll to find out where people were on the issues or how popular it was or how it would track in this community or that -- said the same thing in Amarillo that I said in Houston, Texas, so I mean, go figure."
