Randy sounds like an elitist hippie looking for a cause.
I am now crafting my letter against health care reform. I am going to assert that I have never carried health insurance and when I get a case of the sniffles I have my choice of several Doctors and Specialists who will come to my bedside, run tests and provide medicine right in my own home. ... so why do we need health care reform?

I believe it is "John" who is the insecure one here - not the evil SUV drivers who are merely driving their vehicle of choice and minding their own business. It is John who is SO insecure that his choice in transportation MUST be validated by everyone else choosing the SAME vehicle as he.

Fred, be careful what you wish for... unless you want to give up your home loan interest exemption and your $1000 per child tax credit.

Sorry guys - still sounds like y'all are a buncha playa hatas. Fine - raise taxes - as long as it's not yours.

Ironically, the example provided by the letter writer more aptly describes the current president's administration. They have essentially sold us all "insurance" that we had better purchase... or else.
The rich already pay a much higher rate of taxes than anyone else - while many pay NO taxes whatsoever. The better question is why is this fair? Are those with more than I somehow less deserving of what they have earned or amassed? Doesn't sound very American to me.

Zeno - you read me correctly. By the standards used to judge Muslims our Pastor in Florida would be a "moderate" since he's not in favor of murdering Muslims first hand.

I think the Pastor in Florida is wrong to protest in such a manner. However - why is it that everyone (including the President) is worried about the reaction worldwide from this great "Religion of peace" to a seemingly insignificant thing like this protest? Could it be that their PC rhetoric isn't from the heart? As a Christian I would not be insulted by someone burning a Bible. By denying the truths in the Bible one is only robbing one's self of peace and eternal life.

At what point are taxes excessive? I read recently that we now work until August to pay for our yearly share of taxes. Sounds excessive to me. Which makes more sense in today's economy? 1. lower taxes. 2. increase spending. By lowering taxes and putting people back to work we can increase the tax base and cut spending to reduce the deficit.

Interesting, George. Other citizen's opinions on the direction the country should take are dismissed out-of-hand by you, yet you promote your own opinions and suspicions as facts to be universally accepted. BTW - the regulations placed on Fannie and Freddie were one of the main reasons for the housing bubble/ bust. This in turn was a major factor in the downturn of the economy - so go thank those people you democratically elected into the majority.

O.K. I get it. You hate Christians and everything they stand for. Since Muslims leave you alone for the most part you favor them in this debate. However, the comparison to McVeigh is seriously flawed. McVeigh happened to be raised a Christian. The 9/11 terrorists had their religion as the basis for their actions. And the Koran backs them up on this. The real question here should be the motives for building the Mosque by the so called "moderate" Muslims in NY. One can only assume it is being built to encourage negative reactions by New Yorkers against it.

Aren't the Republicans simply trying to hold the Dems to their own rules on this one? I thought they had agreed to not spend any monies without the offsetting cuts. Oh, and only a Democrat would see a tax cut as an increase in spending. All money belongs to the government unless they decide you can have it, right?

I am not familiar with Beck. I used to listen to Rush regularly. I find it odd that the biggest complaints leveled at Rush have nothing to do with his massive body of work over the years - but are an odd quote here or there (usually out of context) and personal attacks. C'mon, guys! This man has been on the airwaves for DECADES! Surely you can come up with something better than a quote that looks specious at best towards labeling the man a racist. Tell me - if you looked this hard into Obama's past couldn't you make just as compelling an argument that HE is a racist?

T. - for once we agree. There are enough real issues with which one can be concerned without overreacting to this one. Actually, my initial reaction was to inform Delores that being a follower of Christ frees her from the bondage of ceremonial necessities. I am aware of no mandatory Bible reading time for Christians. This is something to be thankful for - not to feel resentment about.

I am not in the business in any way and have no personal stake in the situation. From the info I've gathered from everyone from the farmer to the retailer - ethanol is a BAD idea. Ask yourself why NO auto manufacturer recommends ethonal fuel, or why California seems to be on the verge of banning ethanol because of environmental concerns. From every angle: environmental, financial, performance based and product quality ethanol is a loser.

Whispering - there were various tea parties in '07 and '08. After the election of Obama and the promise of massive government taxing and spending the party became more organized. Still wondering what connection you are making between the Tea Party movement and perceived reasons for invading Iraq. BTW I am not a Tea Partier, but that probably won't stop you from dismissing anything I type that disagrees with your view out-of-hand.

Whisperinge - 1. Who are the "Tea Baggers" to which you refer? Do you mean the "Tea Partiers"? Why the need for divisive homophobic language? Is this in the spirit of the "change" you voted for? 2. The Tea Party actually got its start during the Bush administration. Bush was never seen as a fiscal conservative by most. 3. It was the left who constantly accused Bush of framing the war against Iraq as being directly connected to 9/11. Such statements were never made by Bush or Cheney. etc. etc. keep building your ridiculous straw men if it makes you feel justified in your idiocy.

Just wait, Donna - after fifty million new patients are being dumped into the system - with NO new doctors - and the majority of patients are on Obamacare which will only pay a fraction of normal costs for treatment - plus include many more hoops through which doctors must jump - and before long no one is going to school for ten years to live like an ordinary schmuck and wipe people's ass for a living. THEN see how long you have to wait. BTW - the last time I saw a doctor was on a Saturday with no appointment - I was in and out in an hour and a half.

When one is under the delusion that his opinions are universally accepted truths - then, yes it would be confusing why there is opposition. However, many of us do not hold the opinion that the health care system needs a complete reboot - at the taxpayer's expense.

It's not the fault of Washington - we the people elected the largely self-serving representatives that populate D.C. Just as the founding fathers feared, selfishness and lack of foresight on the part of the electorate as well as their representatives is leading to disaster.

"The stimulus did what it was supposed to do — create jobs." The stimulus was supposed to keep unemployment below eight percent, and it didn't. "There are no death panels." Not yet. What will you call a group of bean counters who decides what citizens will receive health care from a broke, bloated program? "Their health insurance won’t be taken away." No, it will be rescinded by their employer. No one ever said the govt. would outlaw private insurance with this bill, but many businesses will find it easier and cheaper to pay a fine than go through the hassle of providing an insurance option for their employees. There's another few million unaccounted for to add to the Obamacare rolls. "...the president was not born in Kenya." I never doubted this fact, until the first lady recently referred to Kenya as her husband's "home nation". We actually have a president who doesn't feel that the U.S. is his home? "It almost parallels Republican Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care system." Yeah, STATE'S have a right to enact this type of legislation - the federal govt. does NOT. Hopefully the courts will see it that way - but I doubt it. "Let the government try to take those (social security, medicare) programs away." ... a little late now - the cat's out of the bag. I would gladly give up MY rights to these programs in order to get back what I've paid into them with interest.
