      Since the GOP is convinced they're the Christian right, apparently not. Don't forget God spoke directly to GWB and told him invading another country was what He wanted GWB to do.

    Do you know that in obamacare when concerning doctors and treatment there is a part in there that specifically talks about how you get treated when getting bit by a duck? Or other guidelines that specify treatment if a duck flies and hits you. Or if a duck trips you. This is what doctors have to deal with which is why %70 of doctors appose this flippin mess. Can't make this up

    And @ hamsta, if anyones head is in the sand it would be yours dude. Seriously, WHO do you think these lobbyests work for? The ones that motivate members of congress to push for this or that? They work for these same corporations and insurance companies that are screamin "the sky is falling" while they go to part time employees or ship jobs overseas or hike up insurance premiums! Sometimes you just need to look at the WHOLE picture not just the comercials!

    Hey @ Juan, now you also know what OBAMA has had to deal with when dealing with flrppin Congress huh? Thats the kinda garbage that they like to put in ANYTHING proposed by the POTUS. And they've had no problem letting the whole world know that thats what they will do with whatever he wants done. Unproductive, overpaid, and underworked high end welfare recipiants.

I'll say again Do you know that in obamacare when concerning doctors and treatment there is a part in there that specifically talks about how you get treated when getting bit by a duck? Or other guidelines that specify treatment if a duck flies and hits you. Or if a duck trips you. This is what doctors have to deal with which is why %70 of doctors appose this flippin mess.
