Cbrahs,

I hope you don't mind but I changed your subject line and the post a little bit. I made the subject show that this is about socialized medicine, and instead of the link you provided, I embedded the youtube video of this so people can see it right here. In addition, I am making this a sticky because quite honestly, this is the most accurate and amazing speech on the whole issue I've seen yet, and to think it's almost 50 years old!! WOW!!!!

Is this the same guy who called Osama Bin Laden the "worlds greatest freedom fighter", then basically gave him a blank check to fight the Russians in Afghanistan?

It's becoming a trend where certain folks bring up things that are completely irrelevant to the subject at hand...

You haven't shown us anything but that you're a whiner. Kind of sad for someone who calls themselves a Marine. In addition, you have yet to make a comment about the actual content of the message. So in essence, you have no response to it, and that is why you bring up something that is completely irrelevant. Excellent work. NOT. You have given me a good chuckle over the past week or so. Keep it up.

Admin- Devil Dogs actions follow suit with the current left wing liberal attempts to prove that bho is "the man". He needs to lay off the kool aide and get back to reality of what is happening.

Devil Dog- I thank you for your service. That comes from the bottom of my heart. But what I don't thank you for is your ignorance.

A local talk show host runs a bumper of Reagan answering a question. I'll have to paraphrase since I don't have the exact words. Basically Reagan is asked if he is to blame for the current mess we were in at the time. He answers 'Yes, because for many years I was a Democrat.'
So pointing out the Reagan was human only adds to his credibility if you ask me.

The same talk show has been running the audio posted at the top of this thread. Brilliant insight if you ask me and goes to demonstrate that history has a habit of repeating itself.

With regard to incremental socialism, I would contend there is no real step by step reversal of the process similar to the way we got to where we are today. It is easy to give someone free medicine because it feels good, then figure out how to pay for it. But to deny that it is the government's responsibility to provide that free medicine in the first place seems hard and un-compassionate. Reversing incremental socialism is a much more difficult job.

Give the guy a break, DD is a BIG arlen spector supporter!!!!

Now back to Regan, Every so often a guy, or gal, comes by that transcends generations. Regan was this guy, and this video proves it. He had a grasp on things that many of us work and hope for but very rarely accomplish. He was proud of America, He made Americans proud to be American, and brought this country out of a decade (or more) of despair.

Despite the words of others he is, and always will be the truest example of a great and amazingly accomplished leader.

Wow,

A typo. Very, Very interesting argument. Well thought out and Well supported. Quite possibly the most intellectually honest post you have had. I am very impressed.

You are a Styrofoam pillar of intelligence to your party.

Don't sweat it man. DD usually has no substance so he has to find other things to insult you with. That's the way they work.

Democrats, realizing the success of the President's "Cash For Clunkers" rebate program, have revamped a major portion of their National Health Care Plan. President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Sen. Reed are expected to make this major announcement at a joint news conference later this week. I have obtained an advanced copy of the proposal which is named....

"CASH FOR CODGERS" and it works like this... Couples wishing to access health care funds in order to pay for the delivery of a child will be required to turn in one old person. The amount the government grants them will be fixed according to a sliding scale. Older and more prescription dependent codgers will garner the highest amounts.

Special "Bonuses" will be paid for those submitting codgers in targeted groups, such as smokers, alcohol drinkers, persons 10 pounds over their government prescribed weight, and any member of the Republican Party.

Smaller bonuses will be given for codgers who consume beef, soda, fried foods, potato chips, lattes, whole milk, dairy products, bacon, Brussel sprouts, or Girl Scout Cookies.

All codgers will be rendered totally useless via toxic injection. This will insure that they are not secretly resold or their body parts harvested to keep other codgers in repair.

Remember you heard it here first...
