Disagreements and conflicts are common in all years of life.

The biggest concern anyone should have is a never ending education beginning at an early age.

The dumbest always shows up first to post a totally dumb comment!

By: govskeptic on 7/29/13 at 5:10

Actually the dumbest always show up with nothing to say of their own, but to
be on standby to criticize the remarks of their never ending target. So childish!

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 5:46

I couldn't care less about the topic.

On the secondary discussion, however...riddle me this Gov, what's the difference between bfra's statement and yours?

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 5:54

gov - Maybe you like yogi's stupid comments & LIES, I don't. He is an insult to everyone that has an IQ above his 5.

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 6:01

bfra,

With the CPS going out of business, our fun game will come to an end. But before we go our merry ways, let me ask: Are you sure you aren't a communist? If you aren't, why do you make such obnoxious remarks without any support for your findings as communist are well known to do?

On the other hand, if you're a true American, I strongly suggest you, and anyone else on this site listen to what's going on in this nation.

If you've never heard of the man, I suggest you check out Dr. Paul Craig Roberts at
www.prisonplanet.com/the-total-distruction-of-america-from-within.html/ You can also find several over articles of Dr. Roberts at www.paulcraigroberts.org/ Very interesting.

But if you're ready for a dictator, you've got him. If you don't want a dictator, you should be wondering why congress let this happen with open arms; because we are being destroyed from within.

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 6:02

Sorry, I hit the wrong buttons. That s/h/b NCP.

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 6:07

gov. - Guess you agree with that 7:01AM crock of ****!

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 6:18

Do you know what's going on, yogi? Business as usual. Obama's been President for about 5 years, and guess what...nothing. That's right. Because he's not a dictator. He's dependent upon the other branches of government. Sometimes he gets some help (new student loan deal or the USSC affirming the legality of Obamacare) and sometimes he doesn't (debt ceiling, USSC nullifying the voting rights law). Dictatorship? Laughable.

Communist? Exactly what has he centralized? Health care? There's no national health care. Obamacare, if anything, strengthens the insurance agency. The banking system? Wall Street seems to be doing great and the government isn't running the banks. So what? What exactly has Obama centralized?

Bailouts? Remember the S&L fiasco or the last few acts of W's administration? Immigration? Remember Reagan's amnesty? Oh, you don't like the NSA spying...remember who crafted the Patriot Act?

No, Obama's no Communist or Dictator...he's just another President doing what comes natural. Yawn.

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 6:23

Thanks gdiafante for presenting facts! And he does it all so natural that the majority of voters elected him for a second term.

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 6:28

Sorry gdiafante,

Obama (if that's his name) has not been our president for almost 5 years. He has been a usurper in office for almost 5 years.

Just reading his writing and listening to him speak should tell you he was raised as a communist. I'll repeat, why has all of the communist governments over the world voiced support for him, especially the Communist Party USA.

It may be laughable to you right now gdiafante, but you're going to find out a hell of a lot sooner than you want to; unless you're a fellow communist with him.

If you aren't, keep watching to see who's behind you.

And by the way, do a little study on how the communist take over a government.

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 6:33

Yeah...yada yada yada...I've been waiting since 2008, it's always around the corner, yogi...as I said...yawn...you bore me.

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 6:39

Standby gdiafante,

It won't be too long before you can flush your eyes out with tears; that is if you're a true American.

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 6:39

You sure are familiar with the Communist ways, yogi...I put forth the proposition that you are the Communist, not Obama. How better to conceal yourself than to be on the streetcorner pointing your finger at everyone else.

Yeah. I think you're the Communist.

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 6:44

Everybody that stands up for & backs yogi's lies are no better than he is!

You sure are right about that bfra; Comrade yogi is first and the dumbest. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 6:49

Comrade yogi has never been right about any of his predictions and his historical facts are worse. LOL

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 6:55

Nemo - He never did post how his cyberspace supreme court came out for getting rid of Obama! LOL
All the legal Supreme Courts he was counting on & predicting, never happened. His "Time will tell", "sooner than you think", got another nut on the hook about the birth certificate (that didn't pan out either). Poor ole brainless blob, just can't win any of his false plans, for losing.

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 7:04

I thought you was a reasonably thinking man, gdiafante. Sorry, but I'm obviously wrong.

If I was a communist, you could bet your posterior I would not be putting the facts on the table about your man Barry.

I would act like you and your fellow followers on this site and keep my mouth shut if I wasn't praising him.

Politics are generally slow, but I you would think congress would act fast when someone made a move to usurp the Oval Office, but not a one of them stepped out when the man going by the name Barack Hussein Obama stepped in on the scene.

Haven't you even wondered why no one in congress asked for him to identify himself? Haven't any of you even checked on any of the information he has put out on himself?
Haven't any of you even wondered just who in the hell is this man?

Has any of you become aware of the government actions being taken over common citizens in this nation today?

If you want the USA you think you have, you had better wake up.

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 7:10

yogi is drowning in his own LIES!

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 7:14

bfra,

How many sheets of paper did it take to make a copy of your birth certificate? Only 1? They must have not needed much data about you. But it took Barry 9 pages to overlap to making Barry's... even using a letter font that didn't even exist in 1961.

If you was grown up enough in 1961 to read and understand what you was reading, please explain why his race on his "birth certificate" was shown as African instead of Negro.

No answer? Didn't think so.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:27

I have raised questions about yogi’s ancestry and the little lying coward has never faced me about it. There are questions that Roy is not the father and in fact that yogi is a libratory experiment gone terribly wrong.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:33

The little commie yogi 8:14 post, his being a clairvoyant is also a total failure.

“No answer? Didn't think so.”

By: yogiman on 7/29/13 at 7:34

Maybe you should check 'snopes' out, gdiafante. They've been behind Obama all the way to the Oval Office.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:38

This is some more of yogi’s editing gdif. Being a sexist and a racist, yogi only thinks that it the father that counts and not the mother. He can’t get past the black part of Obama’s family tree.

By: bfra on 7/29/13 at 7:39

yogi is absolutely so stupid! I have heard blacks referred to as Africans all my life. He definitely lived under a rock.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:43

With the demise of CP, Comrade yogi will flounder in a dry pond. His only connection to the outside world will be gone and he will have to face the fact that his miserable live was a waste.

What about FoxNews, yogi? Is that legit? lol

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 7:45

g, that was brilliant!

Good morning.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 7:47

What distinguishes them from the rest of us isn’t a big bankroll or a particular political persuasion — it’s a twisted relationship with reality. Conspiracy theorists retreat into fantasy worlds, bending fact and history to meet their psychological needs and emotional motivations.

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/01/surrounded-by-birthers/

It is disheartening, to say the least, that so many of my fellow countrymen buy into conspiracy theories, particularly the wildly implausible ones of birtherism and 9/11. Maybe we can blame it on the Internet. Romney complained about the 47% that he believed were takers. I worry about the 63% who are the intellectual takers, lying on a minority to keep the world sane.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:52

Even with FOX NEWS saying Obama is legit, the old fool will read…..Obama is African.

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 7:54

What the conspiracy nuts fail to understand is the scope necessary to complete the fiasco. It's not just Congress, it's the entire judicial system of the United States and the individual state governments as well. To what end?

The irony is the exact opposite...the free market has seized government, not the other way around.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 7:57

Don’t forget that the rest of the world would point out the fraudulent President.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 8:01

I am sad that the City Paper is closing, but the good news it is shutting the door on yogi and the old fool.

The old fool is you Comrade yogi, since you have such a hard time understanding.

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 8:01

And yogi will readily admit that on one hand, lobbyists have taken over and our politicians are bought and paid for, and then whine about Obama being a dictator.

So if he's a dicatator, he's only ascended to power because of the bought and paid for Congressman/judges, which means he's an agent for the corporate world with designs on establishing a central government authority...which would undermine the corporate world which made him dictator in the first place...

I have a headache

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 8:12

g, he is incapable of thinking that deeply.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 8:30

Heck, he didn't even realize we had allies during the Revolutionary War.

By: budlight on 7/29/13 at 8:39

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 7:18
Do you know what's going on, yogi? Business as usual. Obama's been President for about 5 years, and guess what...nothing.

Nothing is correct G. He has done nothing but divide our country racially even further. His comparisons of himself to people such as Martin are simply projecting. He is an interloper. He campaigns all the time and is not a leader or else the entire country would be united behind him. He has messed up our medical system and our insurance system. People are bailing out of the medical profession as we speak. And many hospitals and medical facilities are laying off people and firing them. A family of four who used to pay $2300 to $2800 a year for insurance is now facing $6000.

Wages? OMGoodness. Many companies are scaling back to part time 20-30 hours so they do not have to pay for medical insurance. How can families survive on part time wages?

So nothing is right. Nothing but tearing down our country.

AND now he's giving a break to BIG CORPORATIONS AND EXTENDING THEIR TIME TO COMPLY, BUT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN WILL BE MANDATED TO START THEIR INSURANCE ON TIME. Or didn't you hear that one?

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 8:42

Newsflash, Bud. Companies have been doing that for years. It's a trend and it predates Obamacare. Why, you ask? Because of the high costs of insurance.

And, again, where is the government control? Who benefits from having people buy insurance?

Things that make you go, hmmmm...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 8:48

The states that have set up the exchanges like they're supposed to are faring well. Those that have not are making their constituents suffer.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 8:50

The companies deciding to do part time instead - hey, that's just the free market adjusting itself. /sarcasm.

Obamacare driving down health insurance costs for small businesses in Washington

District officials last week announced that, for the third time since they started posting proposed plans on a new health insurance marketplace for small businesses, an insurer has lowered its initial prices for coverage. It is a sign, they say, that the marketplace will help bring down health costs for businesses, which have skyrocketed in recent years.

Kaiser Permanente, one of four insurance providers registered to sell to small firms on D.C. Health Link, is the most recent to drop its rates, lowering premiums by 4.4 percent.

By: gdiafante on 7/29/13 at 8:53

Again, the irony of bud's position is that if Obama (and Obamacare) were actually what they thought they were, we'd have a single payer system.

So my question would be, if Congress is complicit in the conspiracy, why is it thwarting almost every attempt by Obama to implement his devious plan?

By: Captain Nemo on 7/29/13 at 9:07

gdia your 9:53 post was aimed at ethical thinking minds. If you expect bud or yogi to have ethical thinking minds or just a decent comprehension understanding brain, it is lost in a void of nonsense.

Meanwhile the city of Detroit is facing a REAL government takeover, with the wealthy in the area salivating over the city's public park with the intentions of turning into their own little piece of gated heaven.

If you all think that ever other major metropolitan area in states with red legislatures are immune to this, you better pay attention.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 9:28

g, these idiots can't even understand yet explain the difference between single payer and ACA.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/29/13 at 9:29

btw, no one is bailing out of the medical industry. In fact, they are moving here from other countries in order to practice in the U.S. Nursing schools have record numbers of students.
