Hey JonRoss: Go back to my "Cruel Class of Lawmakers" post for you and see if you can really man-up and actually answer it with some class.
JonRoss: Blah, blah, blah! Anyone want to vote on who's the biggest, bigoted, racist, fool on this blog? You are so far in the dark ages, JR. Here's a challenge to you. Tell us what you really want. Tell us what you really believe in. I want to know what makes you tick inside. I don't care what you call me or others. I expect that from you. But what I don't know is what you are really made of. Tell us what you believe would be the best for this country and see if you can actually tell it without denegrating people. I don't think you have the guts to really come clean. Prove to me that I'm wrong!!!
joneses: I understand enough about business to know that losing $7.5 billion with the capability to tailor-make a healthcare system to benefit a state's citzens is just plain stupid. And the only reason you and others who don't want ACA is because it comes from someone you irrationally hate--a throwback concept from the old states rights mentality. Truth is, ACA will happen whether states accept it or not. The difference is some states will move forward while other like Tennessee will rest on narrow-minded principles at the cost of their own people. I don't think Tennesseeans thought they were electing such brainless fools.
I didn't realize that Tennessee was such a wealthy state that it could kick $7.5 billion dollars in grants for healthcare in the head. Actually, I agree with all of the state Republican legislators to let the federal government handle Tennessee's Medicare and Medicaid programs. It's handled Social Security since FDR and Medicare since LBJ pretty well. I don't know anybody who would turn those programs down today. Besides, I can immagine what a disaster and debacle healthcare would be when left up to the mindset of people like Richard Floyd and Gerald McCormick. This is a prime example of how a state Republican super-majority can return to the dark ages to appease extremists. Tennessee ranks at or near the bottom in almost every category; yet some state Republican legislators work so hard to keep it that way.
DaytonsDarwin: What's the difference? They're not in public office anymore.
The more I read JonRoss, the more I am sure that he and those like him will be the forerunners of domestic terrorism that will eclipse Al Qaida.
Rickeroo: There is nothing more scary to "conservative" and "JonRoss" than a disabled Communist, Socialist or intelligent person under the bed.
JonRoss: "Nothing you said is true." I get it. You just write on this blog to make people laugh. And here I thought you were serious. Yep, you got us all! Boy howdy, you're just a gol' darn knee-slapper. You must be trying out your material on here before you go to the Comedy Catch. Let me know when you're up on open mic night. I'll bring all my friends.
The term "conservative" by its very nature with today's labels means "status quo." Apparently, the Industrial Revolution of the early 20th Century excepting the information revolution will be the last time we will see significant and major advances in science and technology, especially on the future of energy. The status quo works well with the fossil fuel industry in that it stalls progress and earns fortunes for those who control energy production in this country. As for "eyesores," I find that windmills and solor panels are more pleasing to the eye than strip mines, mountain top decapitation, oil spills and oil-soaked wildlife along the Gulf of Mexico shores. The costs for those by-products is also extreme. So, let's not look forward to cleaner energy production. Let's wait until we have catastrophic environmental disasters and continued health risks. Let's allow the money and political influence of oil, coal, petroleum, and natural gas executives decide how we live in the next 30-50 years.
