The average American reads at a Ninth grade level and believes in a book that was written by ancient man is the book of god. I'll pass on lending credence to what the average American believes.

 The Nazi party was also mainstream. Ask Germany how that worked out.

 See... you did exactly what Volkmann did. He challenged Obama to a santioned contest which isn't a threat. You challenged me to a sparring session which isn't a threat. The way you phrased it before, that's a threat and you shouldn't stoop to such a low level of civility. And the birther issue, I'm not alone. I saw a poll that showed something like 23% believe Obama was foreign born and another 24% aren't convinced either way whether he was born in this county or not. That's almost half the population! The birther movement is far from a conspiracy. It's very mainstream and the reason it continues is because so many seminal documents from Obama's past have been shielded from the public.

Look you actually believe the birther shit, reasoning with you would be pointless. Civility is wasted on the uncivilized, I consider racists uncivilized, I consider you racist, therefore you will get nothing but a smack from me. I have no fears of your veiled bitch ass threats about communicating threats across state lines. It's no threat, you come to Milwaukee ever you look me up we can have a sparring session. I guarantee you leave believing our president was born here.

I agree that the level of care in the US is excellent, and like you said it's the cost of care that sucks. We need to stop all of the frivolous malpractice lawsuits filed by people looking for a quick buck. I also think a publicly traded health care company is a HUGE conflict of interest. They are looking to make the most profit for themselves and their shareholders. How do you do that? One way is to cut corners in the care provided and what is covered. I think 99% of health care companies are shady as fuck. How do you fix that though? We cannot let the government run it, they fuck everything up. I have no idea, seriously...I don't know what the solution is.

I guess our educational system is just as bad. Did you fail to comprehend the sentence that immediately follows the one you highlighted.Like you say though, one serious illness with no insurance and you are screwed. Every time i see the bill to my insurance company for my medication alone, i cringe.

 Communicating threats over state lines. That's a felony. Barry Soetoro (Obama) has asked for a new era of civility. Why not follow his lead?

If you can afford to pay cash if/when you get seriously ill. If not, you die or end up with crippling debt for the rest of your life.
