Yup. Morgan Freeman hits the nail squarely on its proverbial head.However, that should not be taken to mean working to eliminate institutionalized racism should not be a goal of all peoples. Only the willfully blind will deny its existence.If we ever stop thinking in terms of ethnicity, race, class etcetera, and start viewing each other as brothers and sisters perhaps there is a chance of eliminating racism. Isn't it time to acknowledge racism is present in both the right and left, black and white, Muslim and Christianity, and so on and so forth?I await FreeThinke, Radical Redneck, Rusty Shackelford, Johnny Bee Good, and so many others responses.
I believe that during Black History month, listening to what Blacks have to say is what this country is ALL about!
Morgan Freeman was wonderful in Driving Miss Daisy. So was Jessica Tandy.DMD is a wonderful play –– extraordinarily touching, –– possibly even transformative.That moment on the staircase when Miss Daisy recognized that Hoke was truly her best friend brought tears to my eyes, and still never fails to raise goose bumps whenever i think of it.A truly great play like DMD does more to promote greater understanding and better relations between the races than all the activists, marches on Washington, screaming demands, and insincere heated political rhetoric put together.
There's a spiritual component that we cannot see that causes racism: it's called the sins of our fathers. It's taught to us as early as we're in our mother's womb, as babies can hear what's going on outside the mother's womb. Some of that gets imprinted in our brain while developing inside, prior to being born. After we're born, we develop a further propensity to committing the sins of our fathers by observing what our parents do and committing to doing the same things. Those are just a small portion of things we do that aggravate the problem.

FT.....it was John Lennon, not The Beatles.
Lennon WAS a Beatle, wasn't he?
As so many fault-finders, nit-pickers, and leftist operatives do, you managed to miss the point of my post in favor of making an issue out of a small error in detail.TOO BAD!
Lesapussy....and "racism is resent?" Are you speaking Sandskrit?
That song was written years after The Beatles disbanded.At the time Lennon was a solo artist and activist.
Rusty you ever see "Gone Baby Gone"? About halfway through when they go to that boarded up scumhole where the sleazy, coke-sniffing couple are harboring the pedophile (and the dead child), kill one of the cops. After that Casey Affleck offs everyone there.The caption on the top right at the scene's beginning read "Everett, MA". LOLOLOLOLOLOL!
Really, I figured it was Charlestown.
Charlestown, unlike Everett has some decent areas. And you certainly won't find anything boarded up and abandoned there - people WANT to live there.Get the flick and look it up.
Everett MA..... is one of the biggest urban shitholes in the country yet Ducky and his ilk from MA constantly denigrate folks from fly over America and rural towns while living in a hellhole with bars on their home windows.Steve Wynn, an American job maker and brilliant businessman is attempting to build a casino very near Everett and a dope like Ducky opposes it....yes, Ducky is stupid enough to oppose a project that would bring jobs to a depressed area. Their idiocy is dumbfounding.
Why would a bum like Ducky be for ANYTHING job related?
Yeah, that's a Teabag vision of an expanding economy, a bunch of zombies fixated on the slots.Someone should tell those dopes there's a 20% take on the dream and that goes right out of the community. Only a jackass like yourself would buy into that grift.And right now the area is experiencing the opioid epidemic like most of the country. The casino should be a big help with that. Damn, you're dumb.
Ducky's here February 23, 2016 at 6:40 PM...And right now the area is experiencing the opioid epidemic Shock!!!!! Everett, MA overrun with heroin?! Say it ain't so!
Meth still the drug of choice in the trailer park, Redass?Many units going up from lab fires?
Now, now Quackobyrd, there you go again with your fixation on Radical Redneck's rear end. You need to stop fantasizing whatever color you think it is. Just because you're stuck in a ghetto trailer park, it doesn't mean Radical Redneck lives in one.
mystere excelling at mediocrity one day at a time.
Ducky, what you know about the casino business could fit in a thimble,withroom left for your thump.First, I've never yet encountered a zombie on the casino floor, but I have seen many folks enjoying themselves in harmless entertainment.And your idiotic 20% take on slots is either a number you pulled out of your ass or some total fabrication from some liberal rag.No teabag here Ducky....just the truth
Yep. Right now in MA there's a 3% limit on casino's take.Duckhead, once again, caught in an egregious, bald-faced lie.As mendacious as he is stupid.
You forget taxes you demented moron?
They pay 700% taxes on their take? They'd have to to make it 20% out the window.I know Taxachusetts is high tax and you jackboots LOVE your taxes, but I do think that's a wee bit high.Try reading something besides the Village Voice and Salon for your idiotic assertions.
Hey jackass, Massachusetts law requires an 80% minimum payout.Now on top of that you have taxes at a macro level which take another 15-20% of the payout. Money leaving the community.Now lets say the minimum take is 3%. Mass. law requires the casino pay near 50% in taxes. So you are sufficiently stupid to believe Steve Wynn is going to have his main casino revenue generator running on a 1.5% margin?You're dumber than Johnny Pee Good.
He, he, he, he. I got a mendacious, totalitarian, Stalinist goon arguing AGAINST taxes.I truly create miracles! Indeed, the Second Coming in Lent!
You got Quackobyrd shaking his tarred feathers! It's funny watching him get owned.
The campaign trail must agree with Trump. I've watched him on television and he looks more like a pumpkin every time I see him. And, he continues to speak at a 3'rd grade level.Apparently the GOP likes a 3'rd grade level pumpkin that feeds them what they want tp hear.
Keep babbling your nonsense polyester boy. Get ready to call him PRESIDENT TRUMP!As far as Sanders fading out - it won't be the first time a Jew has run out of gas!
redass excelling at mediocrity one day at a time.
Lester the molester has been predicting Trumps demise for four months, much to his stupidity.If a person can make 11 billion dollars speaking at a third grade level maybe Lester should give it a try, it might just help him get healthcare.
Well Ducky.....explain the 20% take out on slots.....or have you been caught in a lie.
If Ducky doesn't respond we will know he got caught and is doing his best turtle impression.
Your response has been posted Chucklenuts.Now why don't you and you alter ego Radical Redass go back to what you do best. Posting racist pictures of Michelle Obama.Is the trailer park holding a Trump rally, you dipstick?
You've been owned, Quackobyrd!
Hey bUrnie, 1933 Germany called and said that electing a Socialist Democrat is a bad idea!
RR, Bernie is fading fast, his campaign is running out of money... the Pig in a Pantsuit will crush him in South Carolina and the left will be forced to support a 68 year old screeching, lying hag.
Lisa, You Got it Going ON!Racism - oBAMa and crew have taken this country back to pre-1950 levels and have armed and incited the black folks. Watch how that works for them ...
Obama armed black folks?That's fascinating. Care to give some details.I bet a dumb demented clown like yourself got it from Infowars.
ever since the first black president we have seen more black youth mobs attacking people and the new "knock out" game is randomly slashing people in the face. This behavior has escalated since 2008. In this case they are being "armed" but not in the same sense we armed terrorists in LibyaAnd of course Deblasio is playing those slashings down
Lisa, the black folks are armed in the sense that the justice department is going to give them light years of leeway as they randomly attack white people. As I said, you got it going on. This isn't that hard is it? I wonder why dolts like duck can't figure this stuff out. I wonder why dolts like duck think that a black population of 13 % is somehow going to overcome the rest of the population that is fed up with their victim status cries. Hey, get an education, get a job, make some money, make your life better, be happy.I'll tell these folks right here that after all this obama/holder/lynch crap, I will go out of my way to NOT help them.I'm driving down the street and I see a billboard that says "The Hunger 5K", and I laugh, then I think, why don't the hungry walk the 5k? Good Lord. They get nothing from me now, not even the time of day.
Kid, can you try speaking English.
Ducky.....please explain the 20% take out on a Wynn casino slot machine.....you portray yourself as an expert on the subject, perhaps you can educate us.
Is Ducky just stupid or is he just a liar? If it's the latter he fits with his life partner RN....two avowed liars.
How would you know assist. You're s fucking pathological liar. By the way, how's life in your new hovel asshat?

Now Ducky....eat some prunes, get a good night sleep and relax......and oh yea, stop telling lies.

No shit. Shit happens. Spelling mistakes happen. Don't lose sleep over it.
Ducky's here February 23, 2016 at 9:31 PM...Now why don't you and you alter ego Radical Redass go back to what you do best. Posting racist pictures of Michelle Obama.She/it'd have to be human to call them racist. Then, again, she/it must be part human, being the Missing Link.
I see radical redneck, aka redass, has changed his avatar. Must be to get rid of that red hue.rr will be forever known as redass because he remains as ass.
And I have known the eyes already, known them all— The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase, And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin, When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall, Then how should I begin To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways? And how should I presume? And I have known the arms already, known them all— Arms that are braceleted and white and bare (But in the lamplight, downed with light brown hair!) Is it perfume from a dress That makes me so digress? Arms that lie along a table, or wrap about a shawl. And should I then presume? And how should I begin?. . . . . . . .Shall I say, I have gone at dusk through narrow streets And watched the smoke that rises from the pipes Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows?… I should have been a pair of ragged claws Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.~ T.S.

What's this fascination with the indecisive Prufrock?
You should be smart enough to realize that "When you can't beat 'em," at the very least you ow it to yourself NOT to "join 'em," Ducky.
After last nights resounding victory the Trump Locomotive steams into Virginia....its unstoppable now.Looks like South Carolina isn't feeling the Bern, he's going to take at least 20% ass beating there from a 68 year old dishonest hag.
What's Virginia's last name? I hope she doesn't change her mind and later try to acclaim sexual assault. Trump ought to be more careful. For all he knows this "Virginia" girl may be democratic operative. };-)>
It's all due to this.

And the afternoon, the evening, sleeps so peacefully! Smoothed by long fingers, Asleep … tired … or it malingers, Stretched on the floor, here beside you and me. Should I, after tea and cakes and ices, Have the strength to force the moment to its crisis? But though I have wept and fasted, wept and prayed, Though I have seen my head (grown slightly bald) brought in upon a platter, I am no prophet—and here’s no great matter; I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker, And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker, And in short, I was afraid. ~ T.S.

How fitting that as Black History Month winds down the American Medical Association announces that doctors at Johns Hopkins research hospital have found the cause of Sicklecell Anemia, an illness that has plagued the black community. Seems the cause all along has been the glue on the back of food stamps.
Ok that is funny Rusty
No it isn't. But is what is expected from one who excels at mediocrity one day at a time.
Sweeping all petty details and side issues out of the way, what we desperately need to do is get back to First Principles and consider the IMMENSE difference between honest CHARITY, which is always heartfelt and strictly VOLUNTARY, and the COUNTERFEIT version aggressively promoted by the Left.The former is based entirely on faith in human kindness and a good-hearted devotion to PRINCIPLE. The latter stems from COERCION –– the threat of official ostracism, incarceration, confiscation of personal property,–– possibly torture, and even EXECUTION ––, for failure to conform to the ruthless, ever-increasing dictates of an Almighty Authoritarian STATE.Charity ceases to BE "Charity," when it is EXTRACTED at the point of a gun.Jesus Christ sought to transform us on a purely INDIVIDUAL basis, by appealing to our capacity to develop heightened awareness of the significance of and empathy for the plight of Others In so doing He sought to foster the development of a refined moral compass and a reliable good conscience in each.This could never hope to be achieved through purely TEMPORAL means.The Marxian-Cummunist-Socialist-Progressive-Liberal-Democrat-Statist model appeals to Envy, Spite, Malice, Pure Selfishness, and the Lust for Vengeance –– the absolute ANTITHESIS of Christian Doctrine.No GOOD could ever hope to come from such a poisonous philsophy, which is why Marxism and all its hideous permutations have always failed and will always will FAIL to produce anything but misery, mutually shared poverty and deprivation.It is entirely ILLUSORY to think otherwise.Doctor CARSON seems to be the only candidate who understands this thoroughly, and does every he can to abide by it.Is it any wonder the godless, cynical, manipulative, abusive beetle-shelled ENEMEDIA sought to ignore him, isolate him, and deprive him of the opportunity to speak at every available opportunity?As "Two Kings," a brilliant Christmas Anthem by Joseph Cloakey, says at the end: "We entertain Him always like a stranger, and as at first still lodge Him in a manger."INDEED!
First Principles: Elon Musk and Bill Thurston on the Power of Thinking for Yourself
Not unteresting, but it has nothing to do with what I meant in my use of the term, as doubtless you know.
___ REVIEW of CNN’s REPUBLICAN DEBATE 2/25/16 ___I watched the entire debate with mounting anger and dismay. Several times I almost turned it off, but felt morally obliged to stick it out, so I did.I was so moved by disgust I called C-Span's Washington Journal at 7:00 AM, –– a rare occurrence in my usually placid life. They put me on, and I told them in no uncertain terms what I thought of the affair and WHY.I have no idea whether they allowed everything –– or anything –– I said to go on the air. When I finished, I had the distinct feeling I'd been talking to empty air, because I received no questions or remarks from moderator, Peter Slenn, a decent, mild-mannered guy, even if he is a Washington liberal, but I don't KNOW. I never use four-letter words, and never indulge in name-calling when speaking in public, but perhaps they didn't like my referring to the rude, noisy, unintelligible exchanges between Mssrs. Trump, Rubio and Cruz as "the moral equivalent of a cockfight in a back alley?" Like it or not the description is chillingly accurate.After that I went on to say I thought it was a disgrace the way the rules of the debate were set up in such a way as to encourage and promote this despicable behavior.I added that Dr. Carson and Governor Kasich were the only worthy figures on the platform, and that the way they were virtually ignored by the moderators and given short shrift was contemptible. Those two fine, dignified, gentlemen were given no time to express and expand on their sober, eminently sane, highly constructive views as to what we ought to try to do to put American society back on an upward trajectory.Last night's Republican debate was a degrading spectacle with tragic implications for the future of our country.That leaves ME nowhere, since I find ALL the viable candidates on BOTH sides depressingly unsuitable for the job they seem much too childishly eager to be awarded."Whenever a man has cast a longing eye upon [public offices] a rottenness begins in his conduct."~ Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
"Whenever a man has cast a longing eye upon [public offices] a rottenness begins in his conduct."Jefferson was a highly intelligent man, perhaps one of America's brightest. As noted by JFK when he said to a group of people during dinner one evening, I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered at the White House - with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.I often wondered if he knew something about himself others, except for maybe John Adams, missed.
Seems like Morgan has changed his tune form this one.Doing ads for the hildebeast now.
Who do you think he should be doing ads for Kid? And why.
I am curious that the Clinton's have so much support among blacks.It was Bill who built on Saint Ronnie Raygun's deregulation foundation and did a lot of the financial damage that devastated black families under The Dauphin.Welfare reformMandatory stiff drug sentences.The Clintons were an absolute disaster. You'd be hard pressed to point to any progressive action they've been involved in.
Clinton, a southern centrist democrat, never had any real desire to buck Wall Street, the established order, the oligarchs, or the plutocrats.His wife now running for the democtatic nomination is of the same mold.The Clintons are very wealthy people and are politicians through and through. The only real difference between the two is Bill was polished and smooth, Hillary is NOT .
There's a cure for the Bern!
There is a cure for Trumpalong as well. It's called common sense and honesty. Both are severely lacking in the teaPuplucan contingent of the G(rand) O(bstructionist) P(arty).
Hold that thought RN......but don't worry, there's always 2024! :)
Not at all concerned speedy gonzales, you see, the majority of Americans will not vote for Trumpalong the Narcissistic Demagogue.He WILL be rejected by the majority of sane real Americans.

POLITICS? BURN IT ALL to the GROUND - PART ONEFebruary 25, 2016 by Eric Odomhttp://libertynews.com/2016/02/politics-burn-it-all-to-the-ground/The level of misjudgment and underestimation happening in the GOP, the conservative movement and conservative media as a result of Trump’s rise is astounding. It’s as if they’ve all been asleep for the past 15 years. It’s as if they’ve been hit by a baseball bat in slow motion but somehow never saw it coming.The very bloggers, party activists, pundits and and Republicans who for nearly two decades have told Americans to “just hold your nose and vote for the guy” are now telling Trump supporters they will not hold their noses. We can’t have the perfect candidate, they say. We can’t win a general election if we’re too conservative, they say. We can’t allow the left to shut down government because we’ll get blamed, they say.￼These same people believe George Bush had his faults, but was a great President. These same people believe that while House Speaker Paul Ryan doesn’t fight Obama the way he was elected to fight (he doesn’t fight at all), he’s at least “safe” and doesn’t get the party in trouble.These people live in a reality they hope comes about at some point in the future. They have no clue what reality we’re actually in. This reality is one of revolution, not one of choosing politically sound motivation.Yes, Donald Trump is liberal. No, he is not conservative. And no, he isn’t going to be a champion of conservative causes. Trump’s diehard fans will try and dispute that but doing so is a futile practice. Trump’s rise is in no way related to his political positions. Not past or present.The establishment and their allies in conservative media have no clue how to deal with Trump. Right now they’re circling the wagons and planning their final stand. Tens of millions of dollars will soon be spent hitting Trump on his liberalism.And it will all be completely wasted money. It will do absolutely nothing to change the outcome of this election.Why? Because what Trump represents has nothing to do with issues or political positions. This is why the demographics behind him are so wide ranging and diverse. Christians, atheists, fiscal hawks and social warriors are all engaged in deep rooted support for Trump. They aren’t stupid and shouldn’t be treated as such. Sure, many of them will try and defend Trump when accusations of his liberalism come about, but that’s natural and comes organically for any candidate’s supporters when said candidate is under attack.No, Trump’s support comes from a desperate need to burn it all to the ground.What comes out on the other side is of lesser concern over whether or not it can all be burned down to begin with. In the minds of many, nuking the entire machine is step 1. Period.(CONTINUED)
POLITICS? BURN IT ALL to the GROUND - PART TWOFebruary 25, 2016 by Eric Odomhttp://libertynews.com/2016/02/politics-burn-it-all-to-the-ground/Is Marco Rubio going to accomplish that? Nope. Would Mitt Romney? Absolutely not. John McCain? come on now. George Bush? Not a chance. Paul Ryan? Get real.Rubio, Romney, McCain, Bush and Ryan are the very kinds of people who brought about a government that completely ignores the will of the people. And the same pundits, bloggers and analysts now crying about Trump’s rise are the people who enabled them.You see, it’s not just that Trump’s supporters disagree with and get agitated by the voices now opposing them, it’s also that these supporters blame those very voices for the situation they now find themselves in without a choice.Our federal government was initially established to protect rights and defend our borders from foreign invasion. Since then it has been allowed to violate our rights, open our borders and allow every decision we make to be blocked by a massive government who uses our money to dictate what we can and cannot do.This is not a government for and by the people. This is a rogue government standing in opposition of the people. A rogue government enabled by those now panicked about Trump’s rise to power.Donald Trump isn’t a conservative. Donald Trump is a weapon. A powerful weapon in a time when people feel powerless and disarmed.Arguing on Donald Trump’s conservatism is naive and silly. That’s not what this is all about. And those making such an argument prove they are disconnected from the reality of the times.The message coming from the Trump alliance is simple. Burn it all to the ground. Any counter argument to that suggests to Trump’s supporters that you want to save the political machine that seeks to ruin us all. In their minds it’s one or the other. The machine survives and continues governing us into oblivion, or the machine is burned down and we all figure out what gets built in its place.Those are the two options of our time. The rest is just noise.
Let me guess, the option preferred by the teaPublican is tear it down and last anarchy rule until we reinvent the wheel.
Legalized POT must be the answer... Berned out Hippy Dopers for Sanders!
Your point is? Oh that's right, you have no relevant point.
You are right about one thing...Be afraid. Be VERY afraid!
Indeed! YOU, should be very affraid.speedy g.
And would it have been worth it, after all, After the cups, the marmalade, the tea, Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me, Would it have been worth while, To have bitten off the matter with a smile, To have squeezed the universe into a ball To roll it toward some overwhelming question, To say: “I am Lazarus, come from the dead, Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all”— If one, settling a pillow by her head, Should say: “That is not what I meant at all; That is not it, at all.”~ T.S. Eliot - from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Actually there is legitimate fear and anger for Trump support. People are hurting jobs are scarce. The past 8 years have been so divisive. People are just tired of politicians .
You got that right, Lisa. Trouble is they're ready to accept anything that LOOKS notably different on the surface, while they blithely ignore quieter, more thoughtful types who might honestly be able to help neutralize at least some of the evil and stupidity that surrounds and presently governs us.People generally crave sensationalism and shun substance. They've been skillfully CONDITIONED to be that way for the past 80-odd years by the ENEMEDIA, the ENTERTAINMENT business, "PROGRESSIVE" educational policies.
Yes Lisa, the past 7 years have been divisive. Obstructionism became the order of the day, it became the new business as usual. It all started on January 2009 and has continued unabated. Interesting Lisa that so many fail to acknowledge the real reason behind the divisiveness and the people responsible for it.
After the elites destroyed the housing market in Oct of 2008 and began focusing on destroying health care... THAT is when all that "obstructionism" began? I wonder "why"?...
YAY, Stanley! HEAR! HEAR!
Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo!!Working hard at perfecting excellence in medeocrity is by and large the goal of the right. They've been dumbing down America for 15 years or so.
True Stanley and the biggest obstructulionist was creepy Harry Reid .He refused to work with republicans and then had everyone believing it was the republicans who were the obstructionists
I know FT .I wish more people would rally around Ben Carson. People make assumptions about his quiet demeanor mistaking that as a lack-of leadership and that comes from the left. The media has already chosen Hillary for the American people. Another government cronie who puts on a phony accent when shevm is speaking to a crowd She seems more concerned about her own celebrity
Lisa'S response to stanley, the Spin Master extraordinaire.AS to Carson, perhaps he would make a decent political leader and perhaps he wouldn't. He certainly was a leader in his medical environment and leading surgical teams.Speaking of celebrity there is Donald Trump who is also a narcissist, mycologist, accepts endorsements from KKK Davis Duke, and is a bigot. But I'll lay odds you will be voting for The Donald in November Lisa.
misogynist, not mycologist. Damn auto spell check on smart phone.
Indeed FreeThinke. SO MANY are ignoring the stupidity and superficiality that presently is gripping the conservative movement in general and the GOP specifically.
Maybe if the MSM had exposed all the elite Housing stupidity and superficiality before 2008, we could have eliminated all that stupidity and superficiality within the GOP before now...
YAY, Stanley! HEAR! HEAR!Let's give three cheers for Stanley Kowalski!Hip Hip HOORAY! Hip Hip HOORAY! Hip Hip HOORAY!
Forgive for saying so stanley, but you really don't understand. It's okay, many of your fellow travelers on the GOP/conservative highway to dumbing down America think (feel) as you do.As you continue pursuing excellence in mediocrity stanley just remember, you weren't/aren't alone. You fellow travelers were right there with you.Oh, and say hi to the oligarchs and plutocrats the SCOTUS gave permission to to destroy America and her democratic republic.
And you can take consolation in the fact that Hillary really learned her lesson with that Private Server debacle and promises to be MUCH MORE OPEN, TRUSTWORTHY & FORTHCOMING during her next Administration.... For Excellence in Mediocrity is what Democrats are ALL about.
When Hillary say, "All Aboard" you'll always be the first one in your seat. :)
Oh dear, Stanley! You've disappointed me with that one. You ought to have said, "Excellence in Malfeasance, Diabolical Disingenuousness, Persuasive Perversion of Truth, Unparalleled Deceit, and Brutish Bullying are what the Democrats are all about."THEN you would have really SAID something. };-)>
Wow! Just WOW FreeThinke. I am most assuredly pleased to see you have not only defined politics in general you have defined present day conservatives/republicans to a tee.Excellent insight FreeThinke. }:-)>

The cost of all laboratory work should be 100% tax-deductible.4. The cost of all hospital stays should be 100% tax-deductible.5. The cost of all surgical procedures, and follow-up visits, whether in-hospital our outpatient, should be 100% tax-deductible.6. The cost of all doctor-recommended Medications, whether prescription drugs or over-the-counter preparations should be 100% tax-deductible.7. The cost of all transportation to and from medical facilities and pharmacies should be 100% tax-deductible.8.

All Medical Insurance Policies should be portable from job-to-job, job-to unemployment, and state-to-state in every state in the land.11. No one should be excluded, because of pre-existing conditions.12. Those who truly can’t afford to buy medical insurance at any level should be subsidized on a sliding scale. A special federal fund should be set aside and used EXCLUSIVELY for this purpose and for no other.13. Rich and upper- middle-class individuals should not be prohibited from using their wealth to buy better quality medical care.14. Generous-spirited individuals who take it upon themselves to help those less fortunate to subsidize their income and help pay their medical costs should be permitted to deduct every single cent they give voluntarily for the benefit of others from their taxable income.15. Gay partners in stable, committed relationships who share a household and have taken responsibility for each other’s well-being for at least five years should A) Be able to visit their loved one in hospitals and ICU facilities, B) Should be privy to all Patient Information, C) Should be permitted to consult freely with whatever doctors or nursing staff may be involved as any lawfully-wedded spouse would. D) Should be permitted to make medical decisions for a partner who is unable to do so for him or her self.16. Insurance policies for senior citizens with a clause also for victims of tragic, crippling accidents should provide unlimited access to In-Home Health Care Service as long as it may be needed, or the cost of Nursing Home Care should it be should it be absolutely necessary.
I am impressed FreeThinke, sincerely and immensely impressed. There is little I find that would do anything but to IMPROVE on both the ACA and what existed prior to the ACA.
#15 is good, my only question would be this, since same sex marriage has been determined to be a civil and constitution right why not treat the union (marriage) of same sex couples just like heterosexual marriages?
Would it be a safe bet that you support opening competition across state lines with respect to insurance policies?More honest and open completion can only benefit the consumer, right?
That is essentially what I am recommending. It's going to take a while for the general public to adjust to the reality of legal unions between members of the same sex. I sympathize with equal treatment of homosexuals, but disagree with the way it was achieved. I don't subscribe to "Legislation from the Bench," any more than I do arbitrary rule by "Presidential Edict" euphemistically termed "Executive Orders."No matter how "just" and "benevolent" the result might be, we were never intended to be an Autocracy or an Oligarchy.
10. All Medical Insurance Policies should be portable from job-to-job, job-to unemployment, and state-to-state in every state in the land.
My bad Freethinke, your #10 clearly addressed the question I had. Thanks.As we essentially agree with the exception on the SCOTUS decision on sane sex marriages would you accept a 2 year period as opposed to 5 year period before granting the same rights. Hypothetically as the law us the law as it stands now?
Confidential polling data shows Hillary Clinton could lose the presidential election in heavily Democratic New York to Donald Trump as the GOP front-runner’s support grows to the point of being “surprisingly strong,” The Post has learned.The poll results, from Democratic and Republican legislative races, have surprised many leading Dems, virtually all of whom have endorsed Clinton, while confounding and energizing GOP leaders, many of whom until recently have been opposed to Trump.There are some Democrats who think that Hillary can be taken if Trump mounts a strong campaign,’one of the state’s most prominent Democrats said.
I'm sure the ex KKK Grand Wizard David Duke's endorsement will make The Trumpy One even more attractive to his reichwing supports.
After Trump has had a chance to research the KKK he may renounce the endorsement.If he doesn't think that will anger his base.
It puzzles me that he must "research" the KKK prior to making a decision whether to renounce the Duke endorsement or not.But I suppose Trump is concerned with possibly losing the support of rad red, shakelford, speech g, and others like them if he does.renounce Duke's support and endorsement..
KKK? You mean the terrorist enforcers of the Democrat Party? The one led quite a long time by WV Senator Robert Byrd (D-KKK)?
I watched Sunday as Donald brushed off questions about the Klan and like many, was disgusted. What research does he need to do?But I was more upset by the "journalists" questioning him. Here was a man on the precipice of receiving the GOP nomination to be the president of the USA and the questioning was what you'd expect to hear in a locker room brawl.I heard not one question of substance regarding what he would do if he was elected and how he might accomplish his goals.No one asked him how he'd balance the budget, no one asked him how he would deport 11 million people. No one asked him how he would get the Mexican government to pay for a wall. No one asked him about his priorities in his first 100 days.I expected more from Chris Wallace, given who his dad was.All I can do is pine for the long form interviews of substance Tim Russert and Roger Mudd used to do with candidates."Tell me Mr Kennedy, why do you want to be president?" When Ted had no answer for Mudd, his candidacy was effectively over.Trump stated that it would be “unfair” to judge the groups without doing more “research” on them.“Well, I have to look at the group,” Trump replied. “I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them, and certainly I would disavow if I thought that there was something wrong.”No shouting, yelling or histrionics. Just calm questions and answers to the substantive issues of the day.Donald Trump is a coward to reject the support of the Ku Klux Klan. He's a disgrace to the Republican Party and to America.I really never thought I would live to see the day of such extreme nationalism in America. Thanks GOP and Trump for making it a living political reality and a potential American nightmare.
Tim Russert was just one more media Ozulu ball washer at the end of his life.He was a disgrace.

Ooooh, the feigned righteous indignation from the leftwingnuts....Trump denounced David Duke years ago,get over it you friggin dopes.They seem to forget the KKK was a democratic based organization whose majority of members supported the Democratic Party.One of the longest serving Democratic senators was a damn Grand Wizard of the Klan for years, did any of them ever denounce him. The hypocrisy of these goofballs knows no bounds.
Keep spinning it, dipstick.Your candidate needs to research the KKK to determine if it's a white supremacist organization.Post some racist pictures of the first lady you blowhole. You're just upset that Duke's endorsement overshadowed yours and Radical Redass's.

Ducky, these reichwing white supremacist dufus types are never going to grasp the truth of the situation and the shift that occurred in the democratic and republican party. The Southern Strategy is a mystery to them. Southern strategyIn American politics, the Southern strategy refers to a strategy by some Republican Party candidates of gaining political support in the Southern United States by appealing to racism against African Americans.

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be; Am an attendant lord, one that will do To swell a progress, start a scene or two, Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool, Deferential, glad to be of use, Politic, cautious, and meticulous; Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse; At times, indeed, almost ridiculous— Almost, at times, the Fool. I grow old … I grow old … I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled....~ T.S. Eliot - from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Ducky, there no seanse in trying to educate these people. It's like arguing with the wall.
"Rev" Miller must be back from running one of his sex tours into poor Mexican villages.
Chcuklenuts you know that spoofing someone's screen name is the sign of an immature little dipstick.Kee responding to your own posts and we'll start calling you Freethinke.
No wonder bUrnie was so stoked to spend his honeymoon in Moscow. Explains why Duckhead and Rhoid Nation love him so much.Coming soon to America! Via Everett, MA!
Redass is so stupid he'll believe anythingShouldn't you be making racist campaign call for La Trump, Redass?
I'm sorry, Chucklenuts. That reply should have been posted as a response further down.I really have know response to your being such a chicken s--- that you hide under the bed every time the mentally ill commit a crime.
Feel Good Story of the Day!A group of male Muslim rapefugees made it as far north as Norway, where they immediately began to assault local Norwegian women. With Norway not being part of the EU, hence not signatory to the "resettlement" mandates, and Norway already having endured a Muslim immigrant rape epidemic, and with a conservative-ish prime minister, the rapefugees were told to get lost, pronto. They figured they would cross over into Russia and try their luck in Murmansk. Where on their first night, they went to nightclubs and started assaulting Russian women. The male Russian patrons dragged the Muslim men outside and beat the living shit out of them. Someone called the Murmansk cops. Who showed up and then themselves also jumped in and beat the shit out of the Muslims a second time, then hauled every last man jack of them (every last man Abdul?) off to the cell block. No charges were filed against the Russian men who had defended their womenfolk against the "newcomers". Strong horse. Weak horse. The muzzies just came across a strong horse and got a horse kick right in the jawline.
Duck, you are either quiet delusional or you've been eating out of aluminum frying pans for far too long and dementia has a strong grip on you.Your obsession with sockpuppets borders on alarming.
Black History Month is over!Good riddance!
Is that you , Redass?
Looks like the Worst Lady is getting an early start on the white house Easter Egg hunt!
Wow, just got in from Walmart. Now that Negroe History Month is over Gorilla Glue™ (aka Jheri Curl) is half price!
Looks like the jig is up
My 12-year old grandson knows who David Duke is and what the KKK stands for. He wouldn't need to do "research" to find out. But then, my grandson is not a cowardly weasel who is unable to look at evil, call it what it is, and reject it.But the morally rotten, Vulgar Talking Yam would not reject the domestic terrorist group, the KKK:
Dear dumbass'sf your boy Trump wins the presidency, you will need something stronger than marijuana to ease your pain. Also, it is extremely tiring to hear about people describing Obama as feckless, weak etc. And if you really do prefer pissy, angry tyrants, why don't you consider moving to Russia or North Korea?
Mr. Free, When you learn to write in English, you can come back and try to argue for the neo-fascist you so heartily support. Meanwhile, we suggest you read a book on English grammar.
David Duke is a notorious anti-Semite and racist and his name is synonymous with bigotry,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL’s CEO. “Duke is a perennial candidate for elected office and perhaps America’s best known racist and anti-Semite. He is a former Imperial Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. His message is racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-American to its very core, and he’s clearly exploiting Mr. Trump’s candidacy to get publicity for himself and his hateful ideas...No doubt the racists, white supremacists, and anti-Semites at the Smut Hut are squealing with happiness because David Duke wants to be Trump's BFF. Trump should make Duke his VP running mate -- a dream team the Smut Hutters would die for.Trump/Duke 2016! "Let's Make America Hate Again!"
Hey Chaw, your momma put lead paint chips instead of sprinkles on your fudge ripple. It shows.She really hated you. And it shows!
You know, I’m really getting sick and tired of everyone making a big deal out of Sunday, when CNN’s Jake Tapper went after Trump about an endorsement from David Duke, a former KKK leader, for several reasons…First off; can candidates control who supports them? No, and to think otherwise is absolutely ridiculous.Second; if Trump didn’t understand what Tapper was asking, can you blame him for being reluctant to answer, given the media’s incessant attempts to get him in a “gotcha” moment? Almost every interview the man does is filled with rhetorical questions based off of half-truths and inconsistent reports, and answering them could very well lead to horrible backlash – just as not answering Tapper’s question did – so why wouldn’t he proceed with caution regardless of what the subject matter is?Third; do people really believe that Trump supports the KU KLUX KLAN??? If so, I have a bridge to sell in the Sahara, and it’s a sweet deal. And Lastly, and most importantly; where was the social justice crowd to decry Michelle Obama’s RACIST endorsement of Beyoncé’s halftime show, which honored the notoriously racist hate group, the Black Panther Party? The Black Panther Party is the equivalent of the KKK, only for black people, yet we watched an entire performance honor them, had numerous high-profile people in the country praise the show’s message, and the First Lady even went on TV before the show and expressed her unyielding support for what Beyoncé was about to do. Where was the outrage? Where was the wall-to-wall coverage? Where were the people demanding that Michelle renounce the Black Panther Party?Double standards much? I’d say. It goes something like this, apparently:KKK = white racists, so that's bad.Black Panther Party = black racists, so that's okay, because social justice!Make any sense to you? Yeah, it doesn't me either. Anyways, I thought that was worth pointing out, given the current environment where racism is the worst possible accusation that can be leveled against someone. But I digress. I think this entire ordeal has been blown so totally out of proportion it’s not funny. They're taking a single incident and trying to act as if its some sort of evidence that Trump is a closet Klan member relying on the group's support to win an election, and the problem is, people are buying it hook, line and sinker. But to be honest, it reeks of desperateness from a terrified establishment that knows it’s about to lose its stranglehold on the collective necks of America and is willing to stop at nothing to retain its power. In other words, it’s probably only going to help Trump since, as we continue to see, the harder that both media and politicians work to smear him, the more support he seems to gain. Hence the term, “Teflon Don.”What do you think, are the KKK attacks just another attempt to make Trump look bad, And that ASS-HAT progressive jerkoff writes endless blogs about this Crap.
Hey Chaw, read this and slash your weak concave wrists! Sucks, even more to be you!bUrnie, like his ancestors, is going up in flames!
Funny that we never see that Progressive Jerk-off write about Senator Robert Byrd who was a Kleagle, a Klan recruiter, in his 20s and 30s.Democrat United States Senator Robert C. Byrd was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career. Though he claimed to have left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group's Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd defended the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.Despite being the only Senator to vote against both African American U.S. Supreme Court nominees (liberal Thurgood Marshall and conservative Clarence Thomas) and filibustering the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Byrd later said joining the Klan was his "greatest mistake." The NAACP gave him a 100% rating on their issues during the 108th Congress.However, in a 2001 incident Byrd repeatedly used the phrase "white niggers" on a national television broadcast.This Donkd Trump KKK crsp is pure Bull-Crap. Say what you want anot him but he's not a Racist.Although the ASS-HAT progressive would like you to believe that.I think that the only racist anti- Semitic in this race is Hillary.
Trump stated that it would be “unfair” to judge the groups without doing more “research” on them.Well, I have to look at the group, Trump replied. “I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about. You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them, and certainly I would disavow if I thought that there was something wrong.”
