So you're voting for Obama...go on and say it you bloody sheep. Quit pretending to be clever and leading us through your little diatribe. You prefer to vote for someone who has not lived up to one...not one campaign promise. He had four years and couldn't deliver on one.
I guess the state and local governments want to keep rebuilding the back roads like 136 from the overflow of drivers, especially 18 wheelers, who are avoiding the new hike.
Elaine....naw, forget it. I'm just too tired for your crap this morning.
It's sad to say but when I worked in other parts of the country, Mainers were seen as resourceful, multitalented people. Some twenty years later, the impression I get from some of the same people is that of quaint village bumpkins. The only respect we get from away is from the foodies.
Again, unless you have read of the natural rights of man or other liberty related literature of the time, you would have little grasp beyond what MSNBC has fed you. You indeed have the right to buy insurance just as you have the right to seek the kind of employment that will look after your health. You also have the right to eat, drink and treat you body as you will even if that causes your premature demise. You have the right to live as a free person; to live and die as you will without being enslaved by an oppressive state apparatus (less so every day now). These were the thoughts of the movement that freed our country once. We are given the freedom to seek the life we choose. If that includes choosing a poor education, lousy job, addiction, poverty, etc... that is your right. So yes, let them get sick and die. We all wind up on the other side of the dirt. I would rather do so free.
"The Constitution states that everyone has "the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." None of those are possible without health."
Then by your estimation of the U.S. Constitution, I could go on a robbery spree in my own pursuit of happiness. You cannot add words you want to the document and there is no "right" to healthcare you cannot afford. For the love of god, people...read Paine's The Rights of Man! Read any of the popular thinkers of the time that the framers were reading when they outlined our rights.
So when his kid busts his arse on a stump or he accidentally runs over one and destroys his lawnmower, where will the city be? I'm sure it's nice for them to tax him on his land AND tell him what to do with it, but at least finish the job and remove all traces you were there which includes stump removal, brush removal, and reseeding the area where the trees were.
I know what you're saying, Brother Bob! Why just yesterday a colored boy was drinking from a white water fountain! Keep up the good work Rev, I'm sure Jesus is on your side!
If you're so upset, Ron quit operating in a pseudoscience run by the drug companies. That broken toy in Colorado needs the business end of a terminal needle, not haldol and a hug.
After all, wouldn't Jesus have spat upon the sick and slapped the "sinners"? Really, did you actually READ the book you preach from?
