Nick does have a point about the sloppiness of many of the posts.
No matter what your politics, it’s an ironclad social rule that first impressions are huge and you can’t make a second first impression.
There was a poster on here a few months ago, whom I haven’t seen lately, named folktruther, who was truly illiterate, yet he ranted and raved and expected people to take him seriously. It was impossible to do so.
If posters would just take two seconds to proof their posts before they send them, it would make a huge difference in the level of discourse on this site.

I love how everyone leaving comments against health care reform can’t even use proper grammar. I’m really suppose to take your arguments seriously when you appear so uneducated? I’m really suppose to think you’re smarter than my president? Who went to Harvard? Right…listen, I’m sorry your hillbilly buddy Bush left office on such a bad note, but the Republican stranglehold on this country has come to an end, likely for a very long time. Deal with it.

Why does he need an excuse? The right to associate includes the right to not associate. A business transaction can only ethically take place when the terms are equitable to both parties, and for government to impose otherwise is unjust.

Insurer won’t be able to deny coverage to people with pre-existing condtions, but they can charge them triple the average cost. And if they can’t afford it… they’ll go without. Nothing changed.

By the comments here, the American health care system is surely broken! In Ontario, Canada, a photo card with your I.D. and medical records is required to be presented to get care! We don’t pay but we do keep records! We know exactly where the dollars are going! No illegal immigrants here! No Americans slipping across borders for our superior care either! No bribes accepted, a straight up honest medical triage for patients where how rich you are or are not doesn’t determine who goes first, we wait in order of medical priorities! We know who we treat and keep records too!This is a Socialist Democratic response much as highways and national defense, applied to Health Care for the masses, and it works very well indeed! Americans need this so badly! Their system by the admissions of this commentary is corrupt to the core and serves no-one properly. In Canada you have to pay taxes and be a citizen, supporting the Social Democracy to get your “Card”. We do not cater to “Bums” here!

Samson, I totally agree. I’m an illegal immigrant (shit, I mean undocumented worker, I’m so un-PC) from Mexico, and I can go into any emergency room in the country I want and get excellent care absolutely free of charge! Hell, my wife just had our third kid there last week. It was in the hallway, but the price was right. (I want him to run for president some day.) Sometimes I have to wait a few hours, but what the hey, the price is right.
As we say in the Seven-7 parking lot, “Insurance? We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!”

The myth the Democrats keep trying to spread is that one must have ‘health insurance’ in order to have ‘health care’.
