Re: Walker

Walker won. Again. By majority vote. What shortcoming keeps you from understanding this?

Re: Walker

Wrong. Walker is THE reason Wisconsin is an absolute mess right now. Was it like this before he was Governor? No. What he has done has nothing to do with how people react to it. Did he send flyers out directing that people refer to each other as "Libtards" and "Teabaggers"? Agai...

Re: Walker

You`re correct Deb. Much of the damage and hatred caused by walker will be with Wisconsin for a long time. He`s an evil little man, and his evil ways will linger like a stench over our great state and it`s people. People really need to take responsibility for their actions. Walker is as much to bla...

Re: The Psychology behind Political Differences

Psychology is generally ridiculed as quack science by other sciences and books like Mooney's do little to change that despite his perceived effort. It is simply thinly guised jabs at the Republican party, much like saying, "It's not Democrats' fault they vote the way they do, they're just to p...

Re: Obamacare

@neup Also, why don't you address the issue we're talking about. Are you satisfied that the US is #38 in the world in life expectancy? I'm not. No, I'm not either, but the best treatment cannot replace prevention. Poor diet, poor medication compliance and abuse of medications is how we're getting t...

Re: Obamacare

I think part of the problem is that in the US you could be on your deathbed and the Dr would say - "oh, looks like you have this or that, let's operate!). And your last few months would be horrible. We've all seen it happen. That is not a decision solely based on the physician's opinion. 92 ye...

Re: Obamacare

You can cherrypick statistics to make things look however you want with healthcare. Until the Standard American Diet (SAD) gets fixed, arguments over life expectancy are moot. With all the healthcare we have available, the healthiest people in America are recent hispanic immigrants. Eventually, they...

At $85,000 individual or $125,000 couple you receive 50% of benefits. At $100,000 individual or $150,000 c...

Re: $cott Walkers balanced budget

Ironicly, I would support bringing it back, but only if serious reform occured. If the politcal ties were truly severed, membership and dues were volintary, and the union's only focus was the worker, I think the issue would have much more support. Would you like that drafted in unicorn or leprechau...

Re: Strip rights, then clothes

So, assuming the recall goes through, who are the Democrats going to post up as the challenger? Barrett who lost the vote in 2010 or Falk who lost in 2002? Cullen has pulled out. A lot of effort was put into recalling Holperin only to have insufficient opposition in the election. Why is this going t...

I hope the American Legion has some ideas on how to reduce some waste and provide a system that better cares for its patients.
