    An expert at misdirection his appearance of flexability on health care is a ruse to establish the single payer system he wanted all along... so while we aren't looking he moves us closer to the socialist system he promised to transform us into.

      Do you know how many years I have lived through many presidents promises? all that were never kept?Remember!  Bush left Obama with a huge mess to clean up.Also theres a lot more to understand of what  behind the scenes are,who's doing what and why(?)Obama isn't at fault for every thing here by him self,there are several government people also in control of  the issues at hand in the white house.If every one doesn't agree upon things then the bill never gets signed,so we again are out in the cold.I understand that we do need to stick together and fight for this issue on insurance and the battle for decent medical care.I feel things will get worse before they get better. good luck

        You said ''Bush left Obama with a huge mess to clean up. Also there’s a lot more to understand of what  behind the scenes ''
        REALLY, the Democrats have had a majority control of Congress since 2007, wasn’t Senator Obama in the senate at that time too. The mess that you insinuate was led by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid, including the presence of Senator Obama too. In 2009 the Democrats took over super majority control of all the US Government with Pelosi, Reid and  President Obama leading the way.
        Instead of a CLEAN UP, the mess got more messier. We all can agree to it getting worst.
        Just wondering where you have been the last 4 years of a Democrat controlled economy. THE QUESTION IS WERE YOU BETTER OFF IN 2006 with a Republican President and a Republican controlled Congress than you are today?

              That's right but what does that have to do with their freedom? At some point the burden of government will crush even my spirit... at some point I will decide that being a maker isn't worth it and being a taker is sooo much easier... so maybe i'll stop working and stay home to paint and let those that are still makers finance MY freedom... that's what you are advocating isn't it? Sooner or later John you're going to run out of makers to take from then what? You obviously haven't thought this socialism thing through.

                It has every thing to do with their freedom and nothing to do with the burden of government unless you are conceding that government and business are inextricably entwined.

                Won't the point when you decide to not to be a maker be at the point where you would be better off as a taker?
                Why should it be any different for other low paid workers?

                Why should others work for less than subsistence wages just to prop you and your like?

                Why should others give up their freedom to support yours?

                I'm not advocating benefits for the low paid, I'm advocating fair wages, wages which will increase spending power and cut dependency on the tax payer, indeed reduce the burden on the tax payer by paying taxes.

                Strikes me that you haven't thought things through.

                  A fair wage isn't what you or government says is fair...it's the minimum one will accept to perform a task. I can't think of anything more fair than an agreement freely made between 2 parties.

              About 30% of those don't have health insurance by choice and can afford it... but you would have the government force them to make that purchase against their will because YOU think it's how they shoul spend THEIR money... and you don't even see how that is morally wrong!

                We aren't going to run this country to suit your morality.

                People who CAN afford insurance and don't get  insurance pass the cost on to those WITH insurance when they can't pay. Those who can't afford insurance also become a financial burden to the insured and to the taxpayer. Everybody gets sick or injured sometime and they wind up in the system that as an nisured parson and taxpayer I pay for.

To hide her hate of all humanity she focus her attacks on the left just as republicans focus their attacks on liberals.  In reality republican don't care about liberials or conservatives after the voting done. The hate, anti- american, anti- goverment, anti- obama, anti-union, she is anti- peace and harmony.  She maybe miserable and in need of prayer.

    1. Note to all. Please refrain from abbreviating Lady_Love's name as "LL" as it is confusing with another hubber, Live Longer, who has been known as "LL" for much longer than Lady_Love has been a member of HP. I do not speak for Ms. Love, of course. But would respectfully request that we all agree to LaLo rather than LL when addressing or discussing Lady_Love.
    2. LaLo. You have now been here 6 months and written only 3 hubs.
    At present, there is no official threshold of # of hubs required to be eligible to post in the forums (although it has been proposed to Admin).
    However, I see no reason why we, as community of regular Politics & Social Issues forum posters, cannot informally petition you to "publish or perish" as it were.
    I do not speak in any official capacity here. However, there have been numerous posts of late inferring that your purpose here in the forums is questionable.
    How about making yourself a legitimate HUBBER and write some HUBS about all these social issues so near and dear to your heart?

    I will be the first to sign the petition. Heck, I may even read and comment on said hubs smile.

    WE THE UNDERSIGNED DO HEREBY PETITION LADY_LOVE TO PUBLISH A MINIMUM OF 3 MORE HUBS OR RISK IMMEDIATE NON-PARTICIPATION IN HER FORUM THREADS.

      I don't care how many hubs she writes.  I just wish she would show some restraint and common sense and slow down on the repetitive "Obama is evil" threads.  They clutter up the forums and push other threads out of the way.

      Yeah, I know, there are no rules about how many threads can be started by one person, and I'm not suggesting there should be.  As with any behavior that affects other people, a little courtesy would be nice.

        How many threads are too many? I doubt I have EVER posted more than 6 in a single day! Ill bet there are others here that have done more than that!
        And if my posts stay on top of the list it is because the free market of ideas is voting for them by responding! My posts provoke thought discussion and debate about subjects that affect most of us... that's why they "clutter" the list!

        Perhaps I should start a thread in why liberal women are jealous of me? Lol
        I would but that would surely sink to the bottom!

          I think you should start a hub about why liberal women are jealous of you. No lie, I'd be entertained by the discussion that would create.

            Lol! I would but I'm not that superficial! I don't care what they think about me... their jealousy is their problem not mine!
            As is the liberal mindset they want to be rescued from me by the system... they want someone to protect their rights not to be challenged or upset by ideas they don't agree with... awwww grow up ladies! Lol

              Lady Love:  your ignorance is painful nobody is jealous of you. I don't understand why the left comment and communicate on your threads. I'm sure they know you can't or want be rational. The hubbers on the right don't agree and understand your logic, but understand that if the left argue and attack you day and night, all they have to do is pile on your threads. There is nothing the left can argue with you that has not been argued.

                For the left anyone that disagrees with them is irrational!! The truth is they can't accept the truth that they and they alone are responsible for their destiny! No one is going to take care of you libs... so start doing for yourself!!

    my question is why do you start threads with a link when it is not allowed?

    It says over there next to the reply box in black bold letters:  Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links.   Is this forum exempt? 

    I'm on a computer today without the forum filter.  I usually can't see the political forum, but it appears you have begun each thread with a link.

      lady_love158posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Because the link isn't posted for promotional purposes at all but as a reference for the discussion... you should read the rules more carefully.

        I have read them.  I can understand inserting a relevant link once a discussion has started.  Many people don't click links posted in a forum.

      Not entirely correct.  The foundation of her posts is a deep hatred of 1/2 of the U.S. population.  The links to right-wing noise machines are to support her ummmm,... well let's be charitable and call them ideas.

          It's fun, but you'll have to go somewhere else to hear legitimate Conservative views.  This place is pretty much occupied by teabagging bottom feeders.

            lol, I do miss your remarks Ron, but if I want to discuss politics, I do it elsewhere! I can't even see these threads unless I click on politics, and I like it this way.

        I trust you disdain equally those who hold a deep hatred for the other 1/2 of the US population (supposing it really were so divided)?
