Well that's another thread to digest how we're all wrong for wanting change, but on healthcare this time....but at least it's a change of a theme from guns :/

I don't think I have the strength to deal with all those "arguments" again.

Sounds like you might need healthcare - certainly therapy of some kind. Whilst my post should not be construed as any kind of professional advice, that will be $100000000 plus tax, please. You have 20 seconds to comply....

The world and the way if would be if it were run by Bionicles and 12-year-old boys.

Oh, wait, it sort of is, isn't it.

No way, 12 year old boys would do a way better job. Plus, we'd never have to tidy up. Ever.

There would be daily farting competitions, though. Beats the pissing matches any day.

So, according to a CNN report today, the proposed weapons legislation will only affect guns used in 4% of homicides i.e. rifles, (though the weapon used in 18% of gun homicides is "unknown") and to the extent that the weapon used is a "regular hunting rifle", it won't affect those either! ..... Good job Congress, for coming up with proposals that give the perception of doing something useful (of course they've never done that before. )

That is just you playing with actual data, please do not confuse what is good for you with facts, esp with democrats.....

Pull the other one.

From what I can tell, most of the shootings are either done by violent criminals (who don't vote at all), mentally ill middle class white boys, and paranoid rednecks who are shit scared of black people. Not by Democrats, you simple minded fool.
Would love to see the statistics that back up that statement? Now you have made it racial. So you do not need ID to vote, why should minorities need it to buy a gun too?

Actually, died of natural cause since he was run out of town by emotion feeling democrats, vs logical thinking republicans.

So democrat compliments end up as republican or other insults? Maybe you should change your vernacular?

Well she has showed us up her dress, "her real feelings" how is that not a compliment?

She wants to stab people, since she does not own a gun, how telling is that in this debate. Ban Kitchen knives etc...

Not teenage boys, they have enough to worry about with 25 yr old teachers wanting sex from them.

Yet again, what is the "problem" they are trying to solve:

I think he Said it best:

You cannot solve a Problem if your basic premise to solving it is preconceived.

I would disagree with perception.

It is designed to appeal to 'low information voters', it is not designed to do anything constructive.

Arguably it may achieve its objective.

It would appear that the Drive bys have moved on.

'Midsomer' is actually a small village in SW England, that features in a detective series called 'Midsomer Murders'. There are about 50 people living there, and for the last 15 years or more there's been multiple murders there in this tv show. So the murder rate there per capita is even higher than Detroit

I'm not sure what you're driving at with this... and comparing 2 cities with 2 states isn't helping my brain on this!
