as a geezer , i gotta put in my 2 cents. the govt's been fucked up my entire life and i expect it to remain so. thats cuz its bought and paid for by corporate fatcats. theres no polititian that ain't taking money from some lobbyists. but this fact remains, the more this country is in dept, the lower the value of the dollar which means higher cposts for everything, especially oil. this fucking war has got to end . vote accordingly.

How about chain gangs for the poor... they love to be poor anyway...

As Barbara Bush said about the people in the New Orleans shit splattered Sports Center... This working out very well for them... they were under privileged anyway!

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

Up with Democracy, Down with Socialism.....I don't know about you , but I work way too hard to give it away to those who choose to leach the system. Yes there are those who legit need help, and that is ok, help them. As far as the war, it should end regardless of who is in office since the government in Iraq had stated they would like us to withdraw. Also, anyone see or read about the waiting list for simple health care procedures in Canada?? I surely don't want to wait that long to receive simple health care, even if it does cost me some money out of my pocket...........And Cuba, not as nice as Michael Moore makes it out to be. I thought we had laws against Americans visiting Cuba........must be like the immigration laws. Ignore them completely. If you are worried about not having money for health care/ health insurance, think about all the booze, smokes, and luxuries that you have been buying that you don't need. Life is all choices, make them and live with them. Its you who makes them, no one else. Just my opinion.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

I used to be a hard core democrat till I got a job inside the same building as a methadone clinic. Hearing welfare queens carrying around four different infants and pregnant with another litter screaming at the top of there lungs complaining about how there free cab that takes them to get there free drugs and take them home for free, all on the working mans dime, really gave me some insights into the "oppressed" classes. I still vote democrat because I'm not rich but the idea of paying to keep crackheads and junkies alive so they can reproduce and make more cracklings and junkalves sucks. If you ask me the welfare state is the biggest step backwards in evolution EVER. Its no longer survival of the fittest but survival of the least responsible and loudest complainer at the welfare office. Oh yeah, and from my buddies garage we can see the Escalades and Navigators pull up to the food pantry. That one always kills me.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

wow. I might be wasted on few martinis, but this is agreat thread, You (collectively) have painted the picture. A presidential canditate must show two major goals: 1) get the fuck out of Iraq, and 2) give us a health plan. And by the way, have a plan "b" just in case congress is controlled by the opposing party. I get reamed by taxes (income, house, sales, etc. etc.) at the local, state & federal level. "What have you done for me lately, Baby?" And it's always "oh, I'm sorry. You didn't bring a personal lubricant. It was in the fine print"

Mike, if they really troll these forums (and I don't think they have the resources), you are gonna be on somebody's shit list. But so am I. And a couple of others in this thread,

unite. swarm. destroy.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

It seems evident that most of the people in this thread have never been sick...I mean really sick, and if they have they have never been poor enough to see how horrible our country treats its sick.

I got a kidney transplant last year. I was 22 years old. I've been kicked out of dialysis and transplant centers because the insurance I had through my school wasn't good enough. In fact, what saved my life was a social system. (Made by Mit Romney surprisingly!) In Massachusetts every person is required to have health insurance. State insurance (which is quite good) is given to anyone who is uninsured. Each person who gets the state insurance simply pays an amount based on their income. For me it was $100 a month! Nothing.

Now I live in North Carolina and I literally had to get a lawyer to get insured by digging up loopholes in laws. With pills that cost $3,000 a month that keep me alive not being insured is not an option. I can't get medicare because I don't have enough work credits built up. (I was a 21 year old student when I got sick!!!)

We don't need a smaller government. We need a government that doesn't spend money on killing people, but on healing its own, fixing its infrastructure, and giving aid (not in guns and ammunition) to those who need it globally.

This isn't about Democrats or Republicans, it's about what is right and what is wrong.

Defend ONLY our borders, take care of our own, fuck war.

We would spend less on guns and ammunition if we would only engage our enemies with weapons that they fear and respect. The Islamists are not afraid of bullets or dying, they are in the midst of cultural war that they are losing. How you going to keep them kids in a mud hut screwing the livestock, when they've seen Beyonce shaking her assets next an Escalade with spinners. They have been following the paths of their elders for a hundred generations built on respect for their place in their society and we come along and tell them "You can be a Rock Star!" Sex, Drugs, and Rock n Roll are our generation's Nuclear weapons. What do they have to counter such a force? Religion? a dancing camel? We should export our culture in every form available from print to video until there are goth kids with spiky blue hair and piercings on every street corner of the Middle East. Of course this could sort of war could be done at a profit and they sure can afford it.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

Yeah, like how we trade all our fat women to Mexico in exchange for hard workers. Good deal.

me likey spendy!

I will do whatever it takes to be extremely wealthy. Then I will still complain about how much is taken out of my massive salary and how expensive my insurance is.

Re: me likey spendy!

toe fur threadkiller /

i'm in favour of simply killing off everyone who doesn't, on their own, make over $60,000 a year, and also everyone who is under eighteen, mentally retarded, over the age of 60, or has a physical disability that requires that they not work. also, i am in favour of mass bombing every city's slums. i also think there need to be uniformed public servants whose sole duty is to quietly "quietly incapacitate" everyone who makes or has made bad decisions in their life that are now currently affecting their lifestyle, priority-setting, and further decision making.

help is only deserved by those who can already help themselves.

sarcasm

Re: me likey spendy!

obviously those in need deserve help. for the rest of us who are capable of making decisions and helping ourselves, let's do that instead of being reliant on the government to make decisions for us. Thanks, i don't need a baby sitter.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

_Yes there are those who legit need help, and that is ok, help them._

I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible to distinguish between the two groups. If we could differentiate between the people leaching the system and the people who really needed help, we wouldn't be giving help to the leachers in the first place.

_I surely don’t want to wait that long to receive simple health care, even if it does cost me some money out of my pocket_

I had to wait almost three months to see a specialist once. I had to wait two months to see a new basic, everyday, run-of-the-mill doctor when I wanted to change doctors. Also, "some money" ... let's define "some."

_If you are worried about not having money for health care/ health insurance, think about all the booze, smokes, and luxuries that you have been buying that you don’t need._

I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't think I buy that many luxuries (unless moped parts count?) I am petrified that I will not be able to afford health care and that I will not be able to afford my medicine. I agree with Elijah -- have you ever needed expensive medical treatments or prescriptions? I have, and it's no walk in the park, even when you can "afford" it and your health insurance "covers" it. There are few things more precious than good health, and to deny that to people simply because they lack the funds to get proper medical care is barbarian. Certainly we all need to spend some money on health care (otherwise what's the incentive to stay healthy if the government or insurance companies will pay to fix the good health that you fucked up?), but when a person can no longer afford the care that they need to have good health, there needs to be a system that will support them.

Wow, Edward, thanks a lot for your well informed and professionally delivered opinion piece. You are probably the biggest raciest I've had the pleasure of reading on the moped army forums to date.

Thanks dude!

HOLY SHIT MAN! i was under the impression that someone from st louis would laugh at that remark. yes dude ive been there a million times. i used to pit for norm roll with the nmca. we raced in st louis all the time. east st louis is especially bad. dude even the arch is lookin sorry these days. dude there are like three types of houses in st louis, they all look the same. its like the city had some kind of catastrophic event happen in the 50s and abondoned, but people still stuck around, if that makes sense. jeez dude i didnt know you were a st louis nationalist, i heart the midwest but get real man, its in bad shape these days. falling apart from the inside out. it STARTS in st louis(where its a tie with little rock) and spreads out. i heart you too man, relax! st louis is a dump but that doesnt make you any less rad. be cool my man.

I guess income-qualified individuals who have stable jobs and dependent children would be an example of those who would need help from the government.

Those who wouldn't need help are those spending money on "luxary" items and not budgeting their income properly to be able to afford health insurance.

Also- Most county health departments/state agencies have made available funds and programs to these individuals based on similar criteria. It's not the government's job/role to find those avenues for those who need it.

Bureaucracies are fucked up enough... let's limit how many provide "services."

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

^i meant how many "services" they provide.

Re: WTB: Smaller Government

i almost cried when i kinda agreed with this

"We would spend less on guns and ammunition if we would only engage our enemies with weapons that they fear and respect. The Islamists are not afraid of bullets or dying, they are in the midst of cultural war that they are losing. How you going to keep them kids in a mud hut screwing the livestock, when they’ve seen Beyonce shaking her assets next an Escalade with spinners."

we really need to engage the Muslims with a weapon they fear and respect, pork. it really works forget where but they had a Muslim military uprising they caught 13 guys. shot 13 pigs grabbed the bullets out of the pigs. used them to shot the terrorists then buried them together. there was no uprising after that because pork is unclean and to dye buried by pork or with a bullet in pork's blood pretty much sends u to hell in there religion it would end this stupid war within a week i would bet on it.

How much does our culture affect our behaviors in our current conflict? If your father, your priest, or your best friend told you that you needed to strap on an explosive device and walk into a crowd of people, would you do it? Our culture has taught us to question everything and doubt authority. Sure there are exceptions but its a pretty tough sell in our society. In many Middle Eastern societies not so much.

Raciest? The occurance of bestiality among sexually repressed rural cultures is quite common even in certain areas of U.S. amongst adolecent males primarily. As far as the subject being erotic, IMO I doubt if it makes the top 100.

Racist? The play upon the "How you gonna keep em down on the farm" theme used characters of a race other than my own for which I apologize as Ms. Beyonce's contributions to the world of high art are well known and appreciated even by myself. Please feel free to substitute whatever male, female, or animal you feel that would induce the subject to leave the agrarian life and loves behind.
