Apparently you chose to invest in "greedy corporations" up until recently.
What changed?

None of the players on Capitol Hill are independent, objective or unbiased regardless of what they are called

Talk about prickly irritated closely shaved ball-sacks.

Oh, I get it. Someone photo shopped a second Putin on a horse and put Trump's head on the torso. That is a very compelling argument. I bow to you.



Keep on bowing then. Hey Vidor how do you like your boy Trump now?

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the carrier of the plague. You have unbarred the gates of Rome to him."

And you think Hillary was the answer, Cat.
Get real. Hillary is a bitch and I'm glad she lost. I can stomach Trump's narcissism but I couldn't handle all of Hillary's nannying.

And the Republicans said fuck you to Obamacares individual mandate for insurance. Another loss for nannying. Insurance is a choice, not a requirement.

You're just another disgruntled Hillary voter.
You and Cat can enjoy your homeboy Trump in the White House.
Sorry Bo, but the individual mandate for insurance is gone. That's all that matters. Now insurance is no longer forced down our throats. I don't doubt that high premium, no pay insurance doesn't exist, it just is no longer law to have it.

Medicare for all and free public education would be nice, but how dare the government try to help the populace, eh Rootsie?

Keeping the masses poor, ignorant and afraid is what makes it all work.

I am giving you credit for knowing why the "individual mandate" was in that law in the first place; am I wrong in so doing?

Oh, and I quite gladly pay a bit for the less fortunate. It is the christian thing to do, I think even J.C. had a bit of a rant on that during his mount sermon.

I did not vote for Hilary...I voted against the mess that we now have.

nothing has changed unless you have a preexsisting condition - then your ability to get affordable insurance is gone. the mandate helped keep an even playing field. but of course there are many ass holes who only care about themselves.
