#2861814 The downsides of being rich

Posted by Harris Aballah on 23 July 2014 - 10:32 AM

Sometimes I look at the wealthy and just imagine how they would react if they woke up 1 morning and all the ATM's were down? I picture it as an opposite version of " the god's must be crazy". I don't look down on people becoming wealthy. But I cannot deny that most become dependent on their wealth, like having money is a survival skill. Mo' money, Mo' problems, right?




#2861087 conflicting rulings on major ACA provision

Posted by Harris Aballah on 22 July 2014 - 01:47 PM

Republicans trying to gut ACA subsidies to families that need assistance to have access to health care.  5 million could lose insurance due to a typo, and 10,000s of people may end up dying due to lack of access to health care, but FUG IT THEY MAY STICK IT TO OBUMMER!!!!

A typo in a bill that the dems wrote is the repubs fault? this is 1 of those cover fire things I was just talking about in the other thread. and this ruling came from the supreme court. Not congress.

I like the ACA less than I like repubs. Mostly because I am a working class citizen in the private sector. There is nothing that favors me in that bill. Dems put out a 2000 page bill full of typo's and errors. the next time they want to use American's health as a bargaining chip, they might want to use a thesaurus when they write the bill.




#2861066 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Harris Aballah on 22 July 2014 - 01:25 PM

We fight too many wars.

 

We worry about who is sleeping with who too much.

 

We are taxed too much.

 

We hand out too much money, both to our citizens and other countries.

 

We are pretty uneducated in politics, and allow a TV commercial to sway our thoughts.  (American Public)

 

 

Something I say on the reg, is "Get out of my bedroom, and get out of my wallet".  And I mean that.

 

The two party system is all about turning us (Americans) against each other.  That way we fight each other on what a woman can do with an unborn child, and not kick their lazy asses out of DC.

 

We need serious campaign finance reform and term limits.  We need to get the government out of banking/housing etc.

 

We need to get the debt down immediately, and I (strangely enough am OK with raising taxes to do so, but only if they cut spending by 2-3 times what the increase in taxes would be.

We need more taxpayers, not tax hikes. We need people to be able to go back to work. The rest I agree with.

Human being 1st. American 2nd. Other than that, I refuse to brand myself with any stereotypes. These days you have to be all in. If you are a dem, you adhere to their rules and beliefs. Same for repubs, gays, blacks, whites, asians, legal or illegal mimmigrants, religious types, or whatever people are concreting themselves into these days. If you step out of line you are either a traitor, sell-out, uncle tom or whatever demeaning name the affiliations can drag you down with. United we stand, divided we fall. I used to believe that. Not so much as I get older.

Congress is supposed to advise and consent on judicial nominees, not refuse to do that. Fire away.

I agree. Thats why I am still planning to vote for independent or libertarian candidates in the next election cycle. You can tell me how rotten repubs are all day? Doesn't make the dems any better. Done wasting my time with both of them.

We don't need a new system. We need a new pool to fish candidates out of.

If you were to speak with any true Democrat, they'd probably agree with part of your opinions.

 

But, I'd be careful to ask about "honestly giving your guy a free pass" when it appears you're giving "your guys" a free pass.

My guys are my neighbors, family and friends. And I do not give any of them a free pass when they fugg up either. If the repubs are violating constitutional laws? Then ring the bell. Show me. I will gladly protest their behavior as well.

Just gonna quote this again since it appears to have been conveniently overlooked by some.

I did not overlook it. I pointed out the intent of the exec order. Until recently, they were not for writing laws. They were for putting out memos and office upgrades. And on the occassion that both houses were in agreement, the pres could fast track bills. But never for the purpose of the pres to dictate laws. Counting the orders is 1 thing. Reading their content is another.

It's the house Republicans currently attempting to sue Obama. The man cannot be elected again. I would think the GOP would be focused on how they are going to actually get a president elected without alienating every voter who is not a white conservative male.

I'd prefer they focus on the preservation of law and procedure, than basing their time on winning the next election. And you should too. Executive orders were intended to give the pres the ability to keep his offices current. Like ordering ink pens instead of lead pencils. They were never intended for a pres to write law. But if you think this pres isn't carried away with this new found authority? Wait til the next guy takes it further, and so on. 

I really do hope for a change. But you will not find it within 2 parties whose sole purpose is to win the next upcoming election. Our entire society should make preservation of constitutional law our #1 priority. Regardless of whose party is in charge. Turley's testimony completely embodies this message. And for a change, we should give him a listen. Turley supports the pres's policies and philosophies. But he does not support his desire to step above and beyond our constitutional laws. If you really want the repubs to quit being obstructionists? This is where the conversation has to start. Admitting that the checks and balances are out of line in D.C. On both sides of the isle.

just to figure this out....why did people give them money? 

Sad thing is, that little girl probably really does need help. But thanks to her shameless gm, that day will never come. don't be mad at the people who wanted to help. Be mad at the one's who took advantage of that.

#2835757 Hobby Lobby wins/Obamacare takes hit at USSC - 5-4...can't make employers...

Posted by Harris Aballah on 30 June 2014 - 10:45 AM

True those muslims are the only types to force their religious beliefs on others
 

I don't know of a christian sect that forces their women to wear burkas. or stones them to death for committing adultery. Do the managers at the hobby lobby stone homosexual employees to death? You made the comparison. I'm just trying to figure where reality fits into your perception? Or are you just throwing out talking points cause you think they make you sound good? i'm guessing you only have a problem with religion when its christians and catholics?
