I'm very troubled that we have so many gullible people in this country! And it seems that its gotten worse since the election. I've never been one to look for a handout from anyone. If I want something I work for it. I do not believe in entitlements and success should not be punished. If you want unemployment and welfare to continue to rise keep punishing those successful people/companies who provide job for thousands upon thousands of people. America wake up! We are loosing our country!

Hey how are you? Long time no see/hear! I've worked for as long as I can remember and have always had health insurance. I work for the state government. 1% is taken to cover my insurance. I have perscription/vision/dental/ coverage. I'm fortunate that I rarely get sick and have never had to stay in the hospital for more than a couple days ie babies and minor surgeries. Now pre-existing conditions are another story. Unless you have money tucked away from divorces or from a dead spouse you're kind of screwed. Pay attention to what's going to be happening here in the next couple weeks and months. The health care issues will be a front and center battle. I don't know if I have given you any kind of answer or not. I know insurance is expensive when you pay for it out of pocket, extremely expensive. The government is messing up the government! How in the world are they going to handle the health care issue? The president put a 31 year old law student in charge of a car company and he doesn't have any experience. Who he's going to have in charge of the health care is even more frightening.

Something I never thought of until I did my income tax return and I'm going to say now...last year my income was around $35,000...income tax or as you may know as federal tax was around $4,400 and in Canada (Ontario) we pay 15% sales tax. Every 3 months I get what is called a GST rebate of $84 and except for one year I have always received a refund on my tax return (ranging from $1200 to $200)... My point here is that what I pay in taxes for peace of mind for health care is nothing compared to what it would cost to replace a finger in the U.S. with no coverage, and I have had the same doctor that I chose for over 30yrs....How much do you have to pay for private health coverage? Coverage that they try to deny payment after the fact? As I understand it...I could be wrong...but is it also hard to get coverage with private health insurance companies is there are previous health issues? Bottom line...I am NOT taxed to death for my health care.

The problem I have is that my room mate Wendy, who has cervical cancer, has tried to get assistance and she has not been able to being a legal person born in the US. I think I may have mentioned this before but she got no help at all. The woman beside her whispered and told her she needed a "social secret number". When illegals start getting more help than an American I have a real problem. I don't care how much you are trying to improve yourself. And when illegals get drunk and beat the crap out of people, rape, drive drunk and yes even kill other people and they get a slap on the wrist and not have jail time I have a problem. They should be thrown out of the country. But does that happen? Oh no! When Americans can get all the freebies and goodies illegals do...maybe only maybe...will my heart soften a tiny little bit.

On the topic of the homless seeking food and shelter by breaking the law....doesn't this say alot in itself? the only way these people can get some sort of free gov. assistance is through illegal activity? Whats wrong with this picture? Why not instead give free food and/or shelter to those taking the initiave in applying for furthering education courses. Free continuing education courses for low income families in order to better themselves and therefor reduce welfare costs. Reward those people who are trying to better themselves not those who commit crimes.

There has to be something we agree on! There are just to many topics of discussion! *L* I agree a million percent that those behind bars have it way to cushy! Sheriff Arpieo in Texas has the right idea! You put themon chain gangs make them wear and some of them even live in tents. But then the freakin bleeding heart liberal ie ACLU bitch. I have a sister that is extremely overweight...most is due to illness but she does comfort eating too. She's an attorney in NYC and had run for judge but she doesn't stick to anything long enough to get it to work...and she has so many thing going on health wise one of her many doctors don't think she would be a good candidate for the gastric bypass. There are ways for people to become citizens of the United States and that is the course the illegals need to take. They have committed so many crimes and it seems they get their hands slapped. Send their ass back to their own damn country! There are good and bad people in every race as you well know. The president is saying he's going to make 12 million illegals citizens???? And our new head of Home Land Security, Ms Janet, what a freakin joke she is! Our veterans coming back from war are being watched because they think they are extremists! I went to tea party I guess I'm one too! All because we are not in lock step with the president. Hell no! I wonder if anyone who voted for him is sorry yet? They'd never admit it even if they are. *L*

Whats more puzzeling.... Why doesn't anyone get angry about OUR money going to provide health care, free gym and free education along with counseling to criminals behind bars? OUR money is paying for their criminal ,irresponsible, negligent and violent behavior. Are the victims of these criminals recieving any "free priveledges or services?"....hmmmm, interesting. And what of the hundreds of thousands morbidly obese people who claim to be "disabled?" Once again, OUR money is paying for their lazyness and self destructive behavior but....noone seems to mind. I guess I am not eligable for any "free services" since I have not murdered anyone and do not weigh 500lbs. So, basically we are saying that it's ok to reward violent and lazy people who don't want to work as long as they are "legal citizens" and we shouldn't help anyone else even if they are children who are not "legal?" and you claim to be "christian?" Am I missing something here? If you ask me, the "illegals" are the least of our problems.

You got a deal girl! *L* It's disheartening to see the things going on a feeling so helpless and I think that is why so many of the tea parties are cropping up everywhere. Getting together with people of like minds does make me feel better. You have to be proactive not sit back bend over and grab your ankles! The government works for us not the other way around! Keep smiling that beautiful smile! *L*

Shaz it does make me angry more than you know! I too need some help and when I see money being handed to people for failing I just want to hit someone! That is our money, mine and yours being given to damn freely! But in the AIG case the government acting so outraged, when it was them who gave it to them angered me more. The President stood and lied to the American people saying he didn't know. They need to clean house in DC! I do not mean to attack you personally and I'm sorry but we just have different view points. It's neither of our faults. It's about greed and corruption and nothing is being done about it.

You are the only one showing any kind of ignorance Shaz. But that's what liberal do. They resort to name calling when they have nothing to say.

I know I picked a "doozie" of a topic. Thanks for the great debate. We believe what we belive. I'll never meet any one on this site. I don't meet the criteria. I've never pretended to be something that I'm not. Thanks!

Oh Dekan09...No,no, no...I haven't been wanting to "let you have it" so to speak. Seriously...just voicing my opinion...no hard feelings on my end here ok? I love a good debate...and wow...you picked a "doozie" of a topic eh? (eh...Canadian term!!! lol) Just as I state my opinions...I have read the statements of others and I keep an open mind and learn from and respect the opinions from others. If we were chat'n face to face...it would probably be a "heated" debate but also filled with a few laughs... Keep smiling everyone!!!! ;D

I see where you are living so of course we'd not agree on anything. I hope you don't drive a black car because your crazy governor will be banning them because of the environment. Cali is so broke due to all the restrictions placed on just about everything! Big government is not good and its getting bigger by the day! That's frightening to me. We both have our way of thinking and I don't believe either of us will change the way we view things so I guess we'll have to leave it at that. Good luck to you.

NoTrouble4U2008 the problem is to many bleeding heart liberals who believe in entitlements. I'll not apologize for my values and principles. Life, liberty and the pursuit, not right or entitlement, of happiness.

I know you've been wanting to let me have it since I first posted this blog and now you have. Your own people as in people born in America Paula. Not those that come across the borders illegally. If the government wasn't giving health care to so many illegals maybe my room mate could get help? And as far as the military goes I love and support the men and women who wear the uniform. At least our military stays where they were deployed. They don't take a year break and get a manicure and pedicure.
