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,

The mid-east is liking president Obama a hell lot better than Bush.&Cheney said if you do not like him and Bush he willing to destroy your country. Do not for get Cheney also showed Iran how you can deal with Americans under the table,

( what did the republican party that has such morals to them do ? made Cheney the leader of the Republican party by elect him to the second highest office in our land, what did Cheney do ran the government like hewas the only one matters)

the big question today does President Obama wants to deal with Iran up front or slide under the table like Bush and Cheney did . So far every thing has been up front . Very good job and the world acknowledge it so far. Keep up the good work mr president

Hey chief, while you're on a roll, you never did address the fact that within the last ten years Tennessee has received an average of 9 plus dollars per person more in pork than Michigan, California, and New York.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 2:56

Blanket,

If a country has a nuke and has a crazy man in charge, he could do a great deal of damage. If a crazy man has a gun, granted he can do damage...but he's limited on how much he can do by the number of bullets he has.

The Dr. said I could wean off the meds if Chief "only" posts 40 a day.
When he's up there in the 50 to 60 bracket and the content revolves around how wonderful Bush & Co. were, I have to go back on the drip.

brrrrk,

"Hey chief, while you're on a roll, you never did address the fact that within the last ten years Tennessee has received an average of 9 plus dollars per person more in pork than Michigan, California, and New York."

The money went further in other states and everyone was looking at where the money goes. BTW, look at which states Bush won in and where the money went.

Care to comment why all the places Obama is now trying to help get money for are states he won?

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 3:07

"chief, they are ganging up on you like Rosie O'Donnell's underwear."

Congratulations Chief, you just made a great argument for gun control. By your logic we should all be walking around carrying sticks.... after all, a man will do less damage if he's carrying a stick as opposed to a gun... right? :-)

"Congratulations Chief, you just made a great argument for gun control. By your logic we should all be walking around carrying sticks.... after all, a man will do less damage if he's carrying a stick as opposed to a gun... right? :-)"

Wrong...because a man has the right to defend himself and a stick won't do it if he has multiple attackers. A gun is a good equalizer...but it also limits what the man can do so he can only shoot it so many times.

NICE try though.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 3:21

Nemo,

"chief is a good example why the Republicans are in so much dodo."

Is that why Pelosi's favorable rating is going down the tubes, or why Obama is having to do so much so quickly because he's afraid he won't be able to after the next elections? LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/5/09 at 3:22

brrrrk on 6/5/09 at 3:19

"And you choose to live in fear of everything... What kind of life is that?"

Does a man live in fear of everything if he buys insurance on his house in case of problems? No...he simply wants to make sure he covers his bets and protects his family.

And by that same logic, a nuclear (or nucular, if that makes you feel more comfortable) weapon is the ultimate equalizer.

"Don't worry about it slacker. chief loves all of the attention."
