Up for Debate: Haslam's rejection

Do you agree with Gov. Haslam's announcement Wednesday that he would not expand TennCare under the Affordable Care Act? What kind of plan do you think should be enacted?

HoundDog, I'm with you on that one, I wouldn't want to even touch anything he has made contact with. Plus, to jug, the reason Obama was re-elected, teapubs had nobody with enough sense to run against him. Even major repubs didn't like the Romney's arrogant attitudes.

"After reading the various unsavory comments by this "Jughead" person, I'm quite sure that contrary to what he assumes, I do not want any of his "stuff" or anything else he may have come in contact with."

Don't bother with Juggy..... he's a Con$ervative Chri$tian.... who also despises Muslims, Hispanic, Blacks, ad infinitum....

jug - Over the years, before retirement, I have employed many people & I can honestly say, from your comments, you don't have the qualifications to have ever worked for me.

bfra: I long for the days when the only mentally defectives were "Chief" and Serra'td and other assorted nuts who believed GW Bush & Cheney were brilliant leaders and statesmen.
Now, we've got the Gerontology Group of Defectives who sit at their keybords naked and play with their balls.

Balls.

d7 - jug must do that so much, as that is all he can remember to say. I have heard that such actions can mess up the brain.

By: Jughead on 3/28/13 at 12:32

You demtards are laughable, and (of course) intellectually bankrupt.

America is full of addicts, idiots, and freeloaders and it is no surprise to me that they voted for Obama. Why would they vote for Romney? He did not advocate giving away free stuff. Obama is Santa Claus to the unproductive. Take from someone working and give to the lazy. Man, that works in America these days! Gimme my food stamps and free medical!

Freeloaders. Bums. Lazy. Unproductive. Pukes. Shall I go on?

jug - Don't judge the posters on this board by the scum you hang with!

How is this any different from giving billions of dollars in subsidies to industries that don't need it? I hate to burst your bubble Juggy, but politics is ALL about giving stuff to someone, whether it be the truly needy in this country or a one percenter like Mitt Romney who was handed every advantage at birth and never worked a hard day in his life.

d7:
Are you drinking more out in Ca than in Tn. Your comments seems madder at
the world and your situation than it did when you lived here? I know you stated
a couple of times you were glad to be rid of Tn. living.

By: pswindle on 3/28/13 at 12:56

Blue Cross 's headquarters are located in TN. They happen to be one of Haslam's biggest donators. Who do you think will end up with Federal dollars? It will be the same old same, with high premium and limited care. They refuse more care than they appprove. Nows the picture is clear.

NEMO......You morally corrupt human appendage, You have the permission of Raspurin 72 to disclose tovthis forum my complete name. This is only just that my name be dragged into reality.

You already have my web-site and I encourage you and one and all to bombard that site with the truth and any other disparaging remark.

It is time that my name (the name you know so well be exposed to this forum)

May my name live on in infamy to the all men and women whose contribution to mankind and civilization adds up to zero.

I readily give up my idenity to you.

By: bfra on 3/28/13 at 1:18

Raspy - How do you think everybody knows what a piece of scum you are? Your lies go over like a lead bomb and you don't even have sense enough to realize it.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/28/13 at 1:24

Kosh..........General Electric lost 408 million dollars in 2010. They are no different than you. If you have no income you pay no oncome tax.

From 2000 to 2009 GE paid 23 billipn dollars in income taxes.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/28/13 at 1:27

Bfra.......Get my name out in the open and let the stoning begin. In fact as soon as you and your people get that name to the public I want to stone the slimy bas....turd myself.

Ben I feel for you having the likes of Jugs and yogi at your back. How do you feel about it?

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:34

HoundDog with his mouth and the things he must put in it I would not want anything from him too.

By: bfra on 3/28/13 at 1:34

Nemo - Ben doesn't have them on his back, he is in the nest with them.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:38

When a hard thought is put forward Jugs, he says Balls. We must conclude that his mouth rules his brain.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:42

I don't need your permission old boy. I have said your name many time on this board, but your ego must get in your way from seeing it, or you are just a coward an won't answer.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/28/13 at 1:43

Bfra.......Stone the bas....turd.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/28/13 at 1:44

NEMO........Post it again. Stone the bas...turd.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:45

It just really get to old Raspy, that he can' figure out who I am. Here a clue old boy... you introduced my wife to me.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:50

No Raspy old boy. I want you to like if I do know you or not. I just gave you a clue to I am, now can that caveman work hard enough to figure who I am.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/28/13 at 1:52

Waiting old boy.

By: bfra on 3/28/13 at 2:20

Nemo - Well at least Raspy admits he is a bas....turd!

By: Rasputin72 on 3/28/13 at 2:25

I am not interested in who you are. I want to expose myself to the forum for stoning and for the internet public to be able to see me in my true idenity.

Have your wife identify me. She probably would love to kill the bas....turd that introduced her to you.

Give the internet public a name. Could it be that a lying low class immoral tripe like you
Is fraudulent?

I have no respect for you,your lifestyle,your morals,or your political leanings. I have no desire to implicate your wife in this matter of idenity. If however you decide to identify me I will be willing enough to suffer the wrath of a wpman in marital torment.

Once you identify me as the person of your memory it will be easy to find me wherever I dwell. You may find that your wife finds the introduction as the worst downturn of her life.

By: BenDover on 3/28/13 at 2:36

I'm logically consistent Nemo... Jesus would never advocate stealing from one person to provide for another. Nor would He abide with the lies that foster covetousness that are rampant in the political process that says, "give me the power to take from them and give to you... or give on behalf of you". It makes no sense... Stealing, False Witness and Covetousness are on the top 10 list right up there with Murder, Adultery and Idol Worship.

It's ludicrous. Clearly Jesus taught individual sacrifice and charity... not stealing and 'imposed' charity, for the sake of political gain, that is nothing of the sort.

Sure we have to pay our taxes but imposition of 'charity' on one person for the benefit of another is where the system starts to fall to pieces... especially when people are taxed disproportionately in order to do all this 'good'.

Don't know who's feedin' you this (maybe it's a self feeding system), but I'm looking at GE's balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement on yahoo financials and frankly they ain't hurtin' by a long stretch.

By: BenDover on 3/28/13 at 3:14

Basically it's an example of Marxism trying to co-opt the power and influence of Jesus just like it did environmental movement.

By: yogiman on 3/28/13 at 4:56

Jughead,

The only reason I have heard or read as to why anyone voted for Obama (if that's his name) was because he is black. Damn, didn't even know he's as white as he is black?

Who he was and what he "wanted" to do in the office didn't matter to them.

First, not being constitutionally eligible for that office, I really wonder if he actually received the votes as they were "counted". Why couldn't he get the votes at places where they had to show an ID?

By: yogiman on 3/28/13 at 5:05

It would have been interesting if the GOP had picked Alan Keyes or Allen West, bfra, and they're both constitutionally eligible.

By: yogiman on 3/28/13 at 5:14

Rasputin72,

Did it ever occur to you why none of these "do gooders" and "know it alls" don't want anyone to know their name?

Could it be they are afraid they will publicly become known as the idiots they are?

It sure looks like it which makes me wonder about their integrity.
