TBD on Ning

What comes after the initial YES WE CAN slogan? Looking for the unspoken follow up to this phrase, both positive and negative. Call it the fill in the blank game. Here are some examples:

YES WE CAN...say one thing and do another.
YES WE CAN...vote to raise everyone's taxes and not pay our own.
YES WE CAN...fan the flames of racism rather than judge people by the content of their character.
YES WE CAN...screw things up just as much as the Republicans, but in a different way.
YES WE CAN...what?

Do you actually fear losing any of these rights expect maybe the death part?
Considering the stranglehold that The Trilateral Commission and The Council on Foreign Relations have on our political process, yes.
Then you need to get out more and learn what this country is really about and stop believing every comspiracy theory you hear. This is a great and free country where anybody can succeed and be happy but we have to all try to get along and not let misinformation lead us into poor decissions.
Like the misinformation that EVERY politician gives out? Do you really BELIEVE what Obama and his cohorts are saying? Did you believe Bush? Clinton? Bush 1? Reagan? Carter? They all misinform.
If those that don't want gov't in their involved in thier helathcare, then those on medicare that feel thay way, need to refuse it, and do it now.Resuscitate orders on their fridge when they both were very ill, my mom already had a hospice nurse.
That is all the "end of life discussions" were about, no death panel. To have people get reimbursed or medicare pay for the doctor's consult about this.
BTW, so, I guess you're for people like me getting no care. You know my story, and now I cannot get insurance. So,I get to pay taxes for others to get care, such as medicare, as I sign the tax forms and am responsible with my husband on his earnings.
But I get no care. And as it stands now, I will not get medicare either, already been notified of this.
I need to see a specialist about my arm, I can go to the er and get an xray, big deal. Then what? I am in severe pain...carpal tunnel, I believe, when I HAD insurance I was diagnosed with that...migraine pain is getting worse...ummm...need to see an endorcronologist about my thyroid, ALL would've been covered under my insurance, if they hadn't called my thryroiditis pre-existing, that wasn't.
So, here I am, on my way to 52 yrs old in November. What do you want people like me to do? We'll just die early as we cannot get the preventative care we need. And our quality of life will suck as we cannot get the care we so desperatley need.
But, no worries. As you the people with insurance and your medicare, whatever ...ummm...you keep on trusting those inusurance companies. I really hope for all that deny us in need join us. That ALL of you find yourself in the SAME position as us.
That people who would deny us care, lose your care. Apparently that's the new American way. God Bless America. What's good for me is good for all.
I've been without health insurance myself. If I lose the job I just got a couple of months ago, I would be without insurance again. This is not a selfish thing. This is a greater good thing. I honestly believe that if this sort of system is put in place it will ruin it for EVERYONE eventually...including your kids and grandchildren and their children.

Maybe if we LOWERED TAXES instead of raising them, people could afford insurance. Of course, no democat is ever going to lower taxes, so that's not an option with this administration.
Oh hell, here we go again....let me apologize now before I say something that will upset your delicate sensibilities. God forbid I think for myself without consulting you who are oh so much wiser.
Sorry I didn't drink the kool-aid on 01-20-09.

By the way, within our study is an extensive library, bestowed upon my girlfriend and myself by her late father who was a military historian, published author, and a psychological warfare specialist who SERVED in THE UNITED STATES ARMY (and on behalf of The State Department worldwide) in his capacity as a military intelligence order of battle specialist and intelligence analyst with stellar distinction through WWII, KOREA and VIETNAM. We have more than the average intelligence available to us about military, political, and corporate business machinations and conspiracies that have spanned more than seventy years of the strategic objectives of worldwide protracted conflict .
In the words of Kautilya:

The arrow shot by an archer may or may not kill a single man; but skillful intrigue devised by wise men can kill even those who are in the womb.

From Arthasastra of Kautilya: India 321-296 B.C.

Pickleallen, his point is that when there is one conspiracy, there are many. To think that there are no conspiracies, to think that there are no intrigues, would be - I think naive. I'm certain you are not naive Pickleallen - and TSD was simply attempting to point out that he is blessed - or cursed, with more intelligence about some ongoing world events than others (generally speaking) given his access to my late fathers work, which I am editing for publication.

No harm, no foul. Peace gentlemen.
Thank you for the peaceful words. However I still believe that too many people believe in too many conspiracies. Yes maybe there are a few but everything government does is not a conspiracy. I believe what I believe and no one has ever shown me in a believeable way that things are very different.
I don't beleive in conspiracies. I believe in cause and effect. If we put this health care thing in place, eventually it will lead to fewer choices and substandard care. I also believe in history - politicians have always been snake-oil salesman and this president and administration are no different.

Why do you insist on twisting everyone's words? Can't you simply and honestly tell us what you believe?
