Guest The Big Lie

America, the greatest country on earth

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

60% of the federal budget is for entitlements. Are you kidding me? Now Obama has added another entitlement to the heap? You gotta be kidding me.

Social Security and unemployment are not entitlements - people pay into a fund. Now do your math again.

Perhaps the greatest lie and self delusion we live under, is this believe that America is the greatest country on the face of the earth.

 

It is nothing but a big lie. There are too many other countries to live that are many times better.

 

 

You make village idiots look good and you utterly disgrace our military.

So why keep it secret?

 

Tell us what countries you think are better, and please explain what makes those others so superior.

Why don't you do some math yourself. Given the amount put in and the amount distributed it is unrealistic. Blame the politicians for making promises they can't keep. Cut social security NOW. Raise the retirement age NOW. It will only be worse later if they don't do it NOW. Cut welfare, medicare, and every other social program NOW.

hey, I have an idea. Pay more taxes! It will cure the problem. Take 2 weeks worth of profit from the lotteries nation wide and pay off the national debt. If everyone is so concerned don't accept a tax refund this year. I would rather suffer now than when I'm 65 or 70. The political parties are to blame for these problems. I'm sorry but if half of the negative people out there actually helped rather than complain about BS. We'd be better off. And now why should everyone that receives social security take a pay cut? The vast majority had nothing to do with today market problems and got this country to where it is. I say no cuts because my elders are more important than your retarded ego. Modify the way we pay welfare, medicare should be mandatory for those people like me who have no insurance and because my employers choose to pay us a insufficient wage I would not ask for the help that I fight to keep. As for your social programs deal, deal with it or get out to one of those better counties we hear about. Maybe Mexico or Afghanistan will suit you best. Next with the so called fall of the nation coming, I want to know. Do you think people like me will just sit back and let that happen, let people like you take over? Yeah right! I've done far more for my country than you do complaining about how much money is in your pocket. Thats the problem, too many people want, but don't pay. Well if that is the problem than change the way we pay in to fix the problem! I see far to many people twist the truth to stir up things, (this counties loves drama). And now since your and expert on financing the nation and supporting 300,000,000 people than you are talking to the wrong group of people and should be trying to convince people like the congressmen and the president to see things your way.

Pay more taxes is your idea?????? WOW.

 

Even the moron democrats are realizing that raising anyones taxes at this time is a bad idea.

 

Lottery money? In NY that is already supposed to be paying for education and other things.

 

What have you offered? You sound like a welfare recipient.

 

I have been paying taxes since I was a teen ager. I have been saving for my own retirement.

 

CUT THE BENEFITS FOR ALL WHO AREN'T PAYING THEIR OWN WAY.

RAISE THE RETIREMENT AGE. When the program was designed we did not live nearly as long.

 

We need to stop giving everything to those who provide nothing back to society.

The are incentivized to NOT work.

 

Work your way up the pay scale like I did you leach. All it takes is hard work.

Current figures show that me and my wife will have paid almost 1 million dollars in taxes for SS and Medicare by the time we retire at 65. The lifetime benefit that we are expected to receive from those programs is about $1,190,000 dollars. I would much rather have the money to invest for myself than give it to the governement. Given the way that they handle government programs, I have to wonder if either one of those programs will be able to provide what is promised. The study also showed that baby boomer and their parents will enjoy more benefit from those programs than anyone coming after them. This is total bs.

There you go thinking your the cats ass, I worked my way up in many companies, plus have own my own business and help run families businesses for over 20 years. I do not collect welfare, nor do I need your consent to think your just to tight assed to know your the real idiot. I have been paying taxes as well since I started working when i was 15. I give my money to whom I choose, not who you think I should. I'm sure you would like it right? It seems to me the political parties (all of them) are responsible for what is wrong with todays economy. The lottery money should go where it's needed and if the school taxes don't cover normal everyday operations. So your going to cut spending for thousands of Americans, possible committing homicide in the process, By starving people and cutting the medical benefits. People like you don't belong here. Please leave! Your not fit to be called an American!

Given your inability to create a comprehensive paragraph, I doubt you have enjoyed any success. Unless you think collecting welfare is being successful. Good luck with that.

Listen retard, get a life! How's that for you? Can you understand that? I am as successful as I need to be to support my family right now. Your just to suck up your own ass to see that your wrong and I'm right. Your a follower and I'm a leader. You loose and I win. I have even more assumptions about you. But I won't keep going. I pay for people on welfare gladly helping those who need the help, I donate money and time to organizations for the needy. I am pretty sure your greed has made you a foul, egotistical, blithering idiot, that acts as though your to good for anyone who has problems making ends meet. You need to leave this country, your part of the problem! Your definitely not the answer.

Suuuuuuuuuuure you are successful, productive, and sought after by beautiful women. Whatever you say. You should probably get some help with that anger management problem you obviously have. I would also suggest you stay away from any political events until you get a handle on it.

come on, stop being a retard. Get over your self. Have I threatened you, or just struck a nerve. The only one here that needs help is you! Your in denial. Stop telling your self you know everything! Suuuuuuuuuure your succesful! What makes you so special? That fact that you can't get over yourself, or can't tell if it's night or day because you have your head stuck to far up your own ass. I'm not even slightly angry, nor do I attend any political event for that matter. Who are you to say whether I am successful? You have no idea, one your just a troll with too much time on your hands. You probably weigh over 300 lbs, and are to lazy to do anything for your self. Do you pay someone to mow your lawn? I'm sure you have enough money for that!~

Calm down. Relax. Don't do anything you will regret. Take your prozac and calm down. You are probably scaring people as they read your angry words. Did you already spend your welfare check on 40's of beer and your newport cigs? Doesn't your medicaid cover anti-depressants and your lithium?

No research is necessary. My personal experiences in Toronto and Montreal (factually, the entire Quebec and Ontario environs) make me almost agree with you.

 

Almost!

 

This is in no way a denigrating comment, but I probably know what Canada is like more so than you do Binghamton.

 

The USA is still the best. And once we get the elected Representatives back on track we will again be the Greatest! It will not be easy, it will hopefully be bloodless, but Americans will not let this Country go the way of Empires long gone!

Can you tell me what percentage of them come here for medical treatment? I like how 1 politician came here, mostly because he wanted a specialist who had done the procedure quite a few times, and somehow this translates into Canadian healthcare is broken! The truth is isolated cases of the extremely affluent do not make a trend.

 

It's not like every last Canadian citizen is driving down here to seek medical treatment.

Because we are not a socialist nation.

 

 

Really?

 

Mediciad is socialism at its best.

Medicare is as well.

 

Public employees, government employees, have much better healthcare benefits than the general public does, espcially than the working middle-class does. That sounds socialstic to me.

 

Also, the US incarcerates more of its citizens in absolute numbers and per capita, than any other country on the planet.

The number surpassed 2,000,000 way back in 2002.

 

United States prison population is 153% higher than Russia, 505% higher than Brazil, 550% higher than India, and more than 2,000% higher than Nigeria, Indonesia or Bangladesh.

 

 

And when the rate of incarceration per 100,000 people is considered, the United States doesn't look any better. Here are the top twenty countries with the highest incarceration rates:

 

 

1. United States...............738

2. Russian Federation...............607

3. Cuba...............487

4. Ukraine...............360

5. Singapore...............350

6. Botswana...............339

7. South Africa...............335

8. Taiwan...............259

9. Thailand...............257

10. United Arab Emirates...............250

11. Poland...............228

12. Israel...............209

13. Libya...............207

14. Iran...............206

15. Mexico...............196

16. Brazil...............191

17. Uzbekistan...............184

18. Lebanon...............168

19. Columbia...............152

20. Argentina...............148

 

 

Compare the 738 per 100,000 people of the United States to many other developed democratic nations:

 

 

United Kingdom...............145

Spain...............145

Australia...............126

Canada...............107

Italy...............102

Germany...............95

France...............88

Ireland...............78

Sweden...............78

Japan...............62

 

 

Even such countries as China (118), Iraq (60) and Pakistan (57) have much lower rates of incarceration than the United States.

 

LAND OF THE FREE, right???????

A study found that of 18000 people polled in Canada, .5% of them sought treatment in the United States. Of that .5% less than 25% of those expressly came here for treatment, the rest were treated here because they happened to be here. So .5% of that is 90. 25% of that is 23 or so people.

 

23 out of 18000 people expressly sought treatment in the United States. HOLY CRAP SOCIALIZED MEDICINE FAIL!

Oh and as an addition, we as Americans spend about 1 billion dollars a year getting pharmaceuticals from Canada. So I guess we're failing here because some of our citizens seek treatment outside of the States, right?

Most morons here have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to universal healthcare. They have been fed conservative myths that they do not bother even thinking through on their own. Most cannot even differentiate terms such a univseral health care, single-payer sytems, socialized medicine, etc.

 

 

Who has the best healthcare in the US and guaranteed benefits?

 

The rich.

The welfare class.

Government employees.

Union members.

 

Who has the worst healthcare coverage or no coverage at all?

 

The working middle class.

The young adults.

Small busineses and their employees.

 

 

Basically the system the US has now (pre-Obamacare) is socialized medicine that penalizes small business and young, working families who are suspposedly the "backbone" of our capitalist system.

 

Foreign companies have an advantage in international trade becuase they do not need to concern themselves with their employees' health benefits, it is already taken care of for them so they can concentrate on their primary businesses.

Some questions for posters 42 thru 47.

 

Have you ever traveled beyond the bounds of Broome County?

 

Other than DC or NYC what foreign country have you lived in or visited? (nam vets exempt, you probably enjoyed 5 countries)

 

What about the USA has caused you to hate this Country so much?

You are right. Only the ones who don't want to die from their condition before they can get treated come here. And the ones who need cutting edge techniques and approaches when thier antiquated system can't cure them.

Sounds like you need to take that up with the criminals. How many of them would you prefer lived next to you? It doesn't help that criminal scum from other countries come here because we are the richest nation in the world. Plus there are plenty of gun laws to disarm the citizens to make them better victims.
