1  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Eight Million, With 35% Under Age 35 on: April 18, 2014, 12:56:20 PM
"everyone else" did not get increased cost

some people (perhaps millions but keep in mind that there are probably 200 million + people in this country who didn't

right.  my premiums haven't gone up.  they've actually gone down a little. but you understand that's just because for my plan the mandates have been suspended until 2015 right?  come 2015 my premiums are going to increase by at least 46%.

and no I didn't get this information from some website.  this is me (small business owner) speaking to my blue cross rep on the telephone.

the real question is will Obamacare hurt the people who have always paid more than it will help the people who never did?  that's the real question.

I am one of those guys who really, truly hopes that you're right about all of this.  because this affects me in real life. I wish I could believe you because it would honestly make me happy if you were correct about all of this but i tend to think that you're being fed convenient information from Obama cheerleaders and you're eating it up because you like the way it sounds. 

the problem I have with all of this is that i'm not rich.  I make a good living and work hard for my money.  and my health care insurance that I pay through my small business is going to increase from $10,000 to $15,000 a year BECAUSE OF THE OBAMACARE MANDATES and i'm somehow supposed to support it and think its a good idea?  I just don't get it.  its like liberals can so easily dismiss things that happen in the real world because they can google an article on the internet telling them that Obamacare is great.

I just find it funny that no matter how much shit like this goes on nobody ever thinks to criticize the Mexican government's inability to provide education for their own people.  everyone just sits around and criticizes how poorly the US government handles someone else's mess.

Sort of like the GOP that accepted the bail out money?

so are you as pist off about this as you were about that?  i'm guessing no.

they don't want to hear this shit.  all they care about is gay marriage, abortion, entitlements.  the rest is all white noise to them. 

they simply cast aside these kinds of things as baseless attacks on the dude in the suit that they have chosen to worship.

And her father went to shake the hands of the scum that killed her.

I guess going to 'Stanford' doesn't make a person smart  Lips sealed

just goes to show how powerful the "white guilt" phenomenon really is.

he would go so far as to shake the hands of the men who brutally murdered his own flesh and blood daughter than admit that there are parts of this world where people live a little bit less like humans, and more like animals.  

it has nothing to do with color, or country for that matter.  but when someone is inundated day after day, week after week, year after year with "white guilt", they become obsessed with the color of someone else's skin, and these guys aren't animals because their skin is dark.  they are animals because they are animals.

because of this man and his daughter's "white guilt", they are incapable of making rational decisions about the people around them.  they judge people by the color of their skin.  exactly what they claim to fight against.

I do not understand the cult-like status of hillary either. Her personal life is the very representation of what her short-haired fem nazi followers hate the most.

as long as you're part of their machine and push the gay marriage/welfare(keep the poor and uneducated happy but keep them poor and uneducated at all costs)/abortion agenda they forgive everything and put all of their personal beliefs on hold for you.  gay marriage, welfare, and abortion are THE end game for them.  they care about nothing else.  they simply pretend to care about other issues in order to further their gay marriage/welfare/abortion agenda.

its seriously hard to watch.

The funniest/saddest part is that some of the most fanatical obama/democrat supporters on this board DONT EVEN LIVE IN AMERICA

right.  like when someone from Europe will claim to know more about how much taxes the rich pay than an actual tax preparer from the US.  Its mass media's fault really.  TV emboldens these people with the belief that they can understand US tax by what they see on a 2 minute news clip.

Anyone over the age of 25 has no excuse for not realizing the main wings of both parties ( bush style reps and "middle of the road" dems) offer almost exactly the same flavor of shit

Bailouts, bombs, growth of government,higher taxes, keep drugs illegal. The only places they differ are superficial pandering to homos, illegals and abortion to keep the barely double digit voters distracted.

The only good candidates on both sides stand no chance

totally agree.  and when I bring attention to their infantile view they accuse me of being a Republican who watches fox news.  why?  because that's the fallback comeback when they have no rational argument of their own.

i mean shit these mother fuckers STILL TALK ABOUT SARAH PALIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  that's how little of a ground their arguments have to stand on.  that's all they have.  its horrible.  

funny thing is I have always been the first to admit that there's no logical reason why I think the Republicans should have won the election in 2008. I have no reason to believe that Mitt Romney would have done a better job. but I also have the luxury of not being attached to the balls of a political party.  but they are.  they've claimed their allegiance and they're trying to be good little soldiers.  and they have to prove their loyalty on a daily basis.  

in their defense it must be exhausting to a slave to a political party.

Thats odd, the democrats in congress were recently shown to be richer than their republican counterparts(despite media trying to depict the opposite)....the democrats have more big name billionaire donors than the republicans do(despite media coverage of only repub donors)...Obamas relection campaign had over ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and was funded by all the big-name wall street institutions the left wing media pretends to hate.  

Sounds like you are spewing emotion and talking points instead of facts.

no he's spewing what he sees on the Colbert Report and snarky comments made by celebrities pandering to the left wing Hollywood worshippers.  if you say something enough times to the masses, it becomes truth.

And you learn all your values from FOX.

Your an idiot Bear.

Look at their politics for fucked sake. The GOP just fucked the veterans of all people.

I hope the taste of the rich Mans dick is worth it Bear. You are pathetic.


and the democrats politics have done exactly what for poor people?  please PLEASE enlighten us all.  can't wait until your first response has something to do with health care.  LOL!!  no seriously go ahead.

you wanna sit on here and go tit for tat on how each party has treated the military over the past 14 years?  do you? 

seriously let me know.  fucking idiot. 
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: This is a joke, right? on: April 13, 2014, 12:57:33 PM
Did everyone  read the article?  (Not surprised that Dario didn't, lol.)
According to the article, it's been difficult for the Denver Public School system to find qualified teachers who are bi-lingual.  So the state of Colorado has established an alternative teaching license that allows bi-lingual folks to work as teachers who are at the same time taking classes that would enable them to obtain their traditional teaching license(s) within one year and they're giving preference to people who were brought to this country as illegal aliens when they were minors if they also have clean criminal records.  Whoop-de-doo. 

If the above is true, this is no big deal because:
- The best, most credentialed teacher in the world is gonna have a hard time if he or she doesn't speak the same language as the students.
- Hiring folks who share the experiences of those they're teaching can only be good for the students who likely need wholesome role models they can identify with.
- A whopping 2 teachers have been hired so far and they say that plans to hire only about 10 more are in the works.

As someone else mentioned, this issue probably is really about money/salary.  I'm guessing you'd have to offer a lot of $ (comparatively) to a fully qualified and experienced bi-lingual teacher to live and teach in cold-ass Denver.  Probably a lot cheaper to use one of these intern-type folks.  (And, if they're only teaching the kids who currently have very little proficiency in English, it's probably OK, imo.)

so what exactly are you saying?  if there is a cheaper way to get something done they should be allowed to go ahead and do it? 

WOW.  that sounds VERY VERY familiar.  it's funny how that argument makes sense to you in this situation but doesn't when those evil AMERICAN corporations find more affordable raw materials and labor overseas.  then you quit being pragmatic and become an AMERICAN.

but for foreign people who don't legally live here you completely change your tune.  I just don't get it.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: STUPID Republican Voters on: April 13, 2014, 12:53:15 PM
I like you, but your both sides bullshit is so CNN.  The right is insane and openly and vigorously working on behalf of the 1%.

such a childish opinion.  this statement is the product of a young liberal media obsessed society who learns all their values, morals and opinions from prime time television.... and thinks celebrities are the gold standard of political discourse.

unfortunately you're a dime a dozen.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: This is a joke, right? on: April 12, 2014, 10:29:05 AM

I concur.  There should not be different rules.  I would guess one of the reasons such an arrangement is attractive is that they can pay shit wages and avoid union hassles.

right, which he should be concerned about.  its funny the hair trigger reaction young liberals have when they hear anything even remotely associated with illegal aliens. 

they don't think. they just know that to be a good little liberal soldier they need to defend anything and everything that isn't "American".

It`s bushes fault, he is protecting his big oil buddies...

Bush tricked Obama into doing this. 
19  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: This is a joke, right? on: April 12, 2014, 08:42:51 AM

Are you saying that all DACA hires will consist of unqualified, uncredentialed individuals?

By the same token, an unemployed American citizen does not necessarily make them "qualified", even if they are a teacher, if part of the job requirement is bi-lingualism.

no I don't think he is.  i bet there are some great teachers. 

but why are you so quick to jump to their defense? 

they're teaching in schools without the training and credentials that are required of American teachers.  if you're not an American, you don't have to follow the rules?  but if you are you do?  there's a lot of legal bilingual American teachers who need jobs.  and they're not easy to get.

I'm not so sure.  On pure liberal sites Obama's less-than-liberal actions are criticized but I think there's a feeling among libs that they don't want to add to all the anti-Obama noise if the reward is just to put some rightie in the WH. 

I'll tell you one thing, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that the Nobel committee wishes they could have their peace prize back...

right.  this is just why I have become so cynical with regards to these elections.  I feel like an idiot for voting last election.  its all becoming so stupid.  

if it is something that we feel strongly about and we're dismissing it because the well being of a political party trumps the issue at hand, well we need to rethink what the fuck we're doing.    
21  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 12:23:30 PM
Hell yes!  Drone attacks are bullshit, too. 

its just funny to me that back in 2007 there were 10 threads a day on waterboarding.  it was an absolutely HUGE issue in the 2008 presidential campaign. 

Everyone cheered, some cried tears of joy, and everyone lauded Barack Obama as the ultimate humanitarian when he promised to close Guantanamo.

and he didn't and absolutely nothing has changed at Guantanamo.  so why is this issue kept so quiet now?  weird.  it's like its not as important an issue now.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 12:08:49 PM

WTF?  "Torture"? 

Waterboarding is an "advanced interrogation technique", ok? 

Please quit listening to those liberals.

and I take it you're pretty pissed off that Obama hasn't closed Guantanamo yet right?
23  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 12:01:12 PM

oops sorry before 2008 it was called torture.  maybe that's why I called it that. 
24  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 11:33:35 AM
I agree.  If this happened under Obama, liberals would jump all over the small number.  

But I'm with you:   I don't really know.  

Although as I indicated earlier, I do believe if the number was much larger somebody would have probably tried to profit off of this during the past seven years.  

before 2008 Guantanamo was a HUGE issue.  after 2008, NOTHING......I repeat.....NOTHING has changed with Guantanamo...... NOTHING.....

but no one says a word about it anymore.  i'd like to say "I don't get it".  but I do get it.  and it's ridiculous.

  
25  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 11:25:29 AM
You have some inside info on this?  What is the actual number?

of course he has no idea.  he's guessing.  you'd think he would be happy that maybe we don't torture as many people as we have been led to believe.  for some reason liberals WANT to believe that we're evil.  I don't get it.  

do I believe it?  I don't know.  I'm not so ignorant to think that I have privy to even the smallest amount of information that would allow me to even have an opinion on shit like this.  

but remember.  liberals know EVERYTHING.  so he's got that going for him.
