We’ll take care of you later

Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana) might think it is funny to joke about how many police officers it will take to ensure the totalitarian status quo over health care in the United States, but I for one think it is disgusting. His weak-lipped platitudes about respecting the opinions of those he betrays for corporate blood money is insulting to those of us who know who his real masters are.

In order to ensure that Americans have second-rate health care, and will be forced into bankruptcy in order to receive it, he is fully prepared to arrest anyone who dares to ask that their contrary views be seriously debated. The land of the free and home of the brave, indeed.

The American public, we the people, are predominantly in favor of publicly financed health care. You, our servants, refuse to hear our demands. You, our servants, refuse to even permit our ideas to be seriously debated in the halls of OUR government. Obviously, there is no shame in your power-hungry world or you would surely know the wages of your sins.

Either allow the public's will to be done, or answer to them during the next primary season, the choice is yours. You can be sure that the video of any of you laughing at Baucus’ joke of turning the U.S. into a gulag state for the benefit of your corporate masters will be replayed in the form of political ads for your opponents. You better believe that we will empty our pockets, and donate every spare second of our time, to ensure that ALL of you who oppose the will of the people are forced from OUR houses of government in order that the well-being of the American people can be once again faithfully represented.

Jeremy Wilburn,

Nemo,

Hey, I could care LESS what the Iranians think. Blanket asked me to post stories here.

And when a lady askes a man for something, he should try his best to accomodate.

By: gdiafante on 6/5/09 at 1:34

Chief, if existing immigration laws were enforced in the first place, this wouldn't be an issue.

I believe, like many rural Tennesseans, that God provided the second amendment of the Constitution to Moses so that Christians could shoot illegal immigrants.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/5/09 at 1:34

Have you noticed when chief does not get his way, he goes into his chief little rush mode.

By: gdiafante on 6/5/09 at 1:34

Quick Blanket, ask Chief to visit Antarctica...

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:37

Gdia,

I agree...but unfortunately, the federal government not only refuses to enforce the immigration laws we already have, they apparently try to penalize those at the local level who try to enforce them too.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/5/09 at 1:39

I wonder if Blanket can get him to stop. lol

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:40

Have you noticed when Nemo has nothing of value to say, he reverts to name calling?

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:40

Nemo,

No, blanket probably couldn't.

By: gdiafante on 6/5/09 at 1:41

The government isn't going to enforce it for many reasons, two being that our economy is now dependent upon illegal labor and the growing Hispanic vote.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:43

Gdia,

I'll buy that second explaination. The Hispanic vote has become very important to the politicians.

If I was to do any name calling, it would be to say that you are a useless parasite.

But I would not do that.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/5/09 at 1:46

if our government really cared about illegal immigration they would heavily fine the employers.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/5/09 at 1:49

Blanket, I have said that all a long. However it is mostly Republicans that do the hireing.

By: house_of_pain on 6/5/09 at 1:52

Nemo,

"If I was to do any name calling, it would be to say that you are a useless parasite.
But I would not do that."

Come on, Nemo...SURE you would. You would be wrong...but you'd say it! LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:54

Nemo,

"Blanket, I have said that all a long. However it is mostly Republicans that do the hireing"

THERE we go Nemo...I KNEW you'd find a way to blame the Republicans...even when it's both parties doing the hiring and avoiding enforcing the law.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/5/09 at 1:55

I would not call you a useless parsite, chief. Really I would not call you a parasite.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 1:59

Apparently there's an even split now.

Well I'll agree that if they are evenly split, they are definitely polarized.
