Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

With vindication of the Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act by the Supreme Court, it only seems logical the next step for the federal government will be to regulate “health risks” to manage those health care costs. I am sure that any number of “independent” surveys will be published related to statistics showing firearms ownership in the home raises the likelihood of accidental (and otherwise) shootings.

Do not be surprised if the American Left begins the push to regulate firearms ownership under the auspices of mitigating “health risks”. It will come with the same language as regulation of fatty fast food, foods sweetened with sugars and meal portion sizes.

Re: Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

Absolutely nothing suprises me anymore.

Our country has become all about ptotecting yourself from yourself, instituted and administrated by the central government because the population don't have the intellegence or the common sense to do it themselves (in their opinion) and to which I disagree, for the most part.

There is a sizeable segment in this country that relies totally on the government to make decisions and to provide daily sustenance...... The public assistance people.

But then, most of those people don't own firearms and if they do, they are used to commit crimes against the rest of society.....

I rest my case.....

Re: Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

To believe in the "individual mandate" one must first believe that addict prostitutes, and petty thief junkies will work late to come up with health care money. With something like 40+% of the population not paying taxes the added IRS agents will not be assigned to squeezing blood from that turnip. The country has lost almost a third of their ER's in the last decade. Seven burn units closed in the last year as meth addict/cookers make up a significant number of the patients. Shifting these nonpayers to the surviving institutions puts those institutions at risk, and "rationing" is achieved without ever using that bad word. Substantial numbers of ICU beds are being occupied by polysubstance abusers. There is a reason the true cost of this debacle is being implemented after this years election. Talks of nationalizing retirements have resumed.

New gun control laws won't be needed if we are to broke to play this game anymore!

Re: Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

I've said elsewhere (not on this forum or site) that elections are made or broken not on credentials of the electee but on the amount of 'free cheese' the electee can generate for the free cheese eaters, in other words the 40 or so percent that contribute nothing and just take............

Re: Affording Health Care and Firearms Ownership

I have a thread running concurrently on this sub forum about the proposed UN arms treaty.

Mr. Obama and Ms. Clinton are poised to sign on, on July 27th. If ratified by Congress, this forum and many others will cease to exist because firearm ownership by citizens will become illegal and the Second Amendment as it pertains to an indiviruals roght to bear arms will no longer apply.

What hapopened to Kelly MAcMillan is childs play compared to what is about to occur.

Mr. Obama has been very low key about gun control, even though he is adamately against citizens owning firearms (as evidenced by his appointment of Erik Holder as AG and his friendship with Rahm Emanuel).

The UN treaty will give him the power to remove firearms from the public under the guise of the United Nations.

How convenient.

Candidly, I'm not at all. people knew this country was heading in a decidedly downward spiral and Obama promised 'hope and change' and Obama appealed to the younger, more gullible segment of society plus the African Americans, the Hispanics and the free cheese crowd.

McCain and Palin didn't have what it took, McCain still don't.

He had to win, He had the chrisma and the speaking talent plus no one could say anything even remotely against him because the 'race card' was immediately waived. How to you dissect a candidate if you can't dissect his faults and if the media collectively decides that everything except positive events are off limits.

He had to win beyond any doubt.

Hopefully, this time around, enough people have had enough amaterusih acting and failed foreign policy plus a stagnant economy and a regime tossing money away like a drunken sailor and constantly abusing the Constitution, that enough people will vote the other candidate, not that Rommney is the 'holy grail' of candidates, because he isn't, but he is exponentially better that Obama.

You have to completely disregard the media and what they say and print first off and decide on your gut reaction to the last 4 years. Ignore the polls, the newspaper, the radio, forget Hannity and Limbaugh (paid entertainers anyway, nothing more...). Vote with your heart and vote using what you've seen and experienced, not what your are told by someone else.

People, in general, in this country need to become what we were 100 years ago, independent thinkers.
