    THE 2ND PIC DOWN-WHAT IN THE HELL IS THIS FAT BITCH COMPLAINING ABOUT. THAT THANG IS VASTLY OVERWEIGHT AND A SMOKER. IM SURE SHE WILL BE FILING FOR BENEFITS AS SOON AS SHE GETS BACK HOME.

    SHE IS THE REASON WHY WE SHOULD HAVE ABORTION COVERAGE IN THE HEALTH CARE BILL.

    The majority of the folks pictured I would bet have a refridgerator on their front porch and a car up on cinder blocks in their front yard of their double-wide!

    Looking at the last picture I would say this guy made a wrong turn and ended-up at the wrong protest that day!

  • Adrian Bent-Me

    Noodlez- same sentiment rang through me as I saw these. She's be grateful for this legislation when everything is said and done.

    It looks like an Aryan nation rally- barf. They are just looking for any excuse to protest cause they are bitter about Obama.

    I like the new site!

    That might have been my fault. People kept coming up to me and asking how they got to "the anti-Obama rally". Since they didn't specify which rally, I sent the ones with signs extolling the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine to the Teabaggers and the ones with explicit pictures of the aftermath of abortion to the International ANSWER Coalition.

    I taught them a valuable lesson about being specific. And not trusting Washington.

    Poor white trash never looked so good. That fat bitch with the cigarette in her hand- while she squats on a lawn chair- is gonna be wishing for HCR when she can't afford the chemo her greasy ass is gonna need for that Lung Cancer she's incubating.

    I should have sent the crews from 5th & O St and 8th & R St down there to chase their carcasses out of town. But wait, some of those protesters may have been packing cold steel that dispenses heat.

  • Typical DC BS

    Too bad all you idiots have no idea how much this "health care bill" will cost.
    Just wait until you see how many Democrats lose their seats this fall.

    I'm an obese smoker and I don't want insurance companies to cover my pre-existing conditions.

    Too bad all you idiots have no idea how much this "health care bill" will cost.

    Less than we're wasting now, according to the CBO, which the GOP called the uncontested delphic voice of financial wisdom until it dared to disagree with the Teabaggers' folie a mob rule.

    Just wait until you see how many Democrats lose their seats this fall.

    Post hoc ergo prompter hoc fallacy. 2006 and 2008 were unusually good years for the Democrats; even the day after Election Day 2008 everybody who was paying attention predicted there would be a reversion to the mean above and beyond the traditional midterm bump for the opposition. Compare the fiasco that was the 1986 GOP Senatorial campaign; it was the first election for the landslide class of 1980, many of whom were pulled in on Reagan's coattails and couldn't survive without Reagan on the ticket. It didn't mean the Reagan Revolution wasn't real, it meant that the path of political realignment was not a neat straight-line process. And it still isn't.

    @Typical DC BS-JUST LIKE THE COST FOR THE WAR IN IRAQ. JUST LIKE THE GAS PRICES ARE CONTINUING TO INCREASE.

    HEY BUZZ KILLER A PYRRHIC VICTORY IS STILL A VICTORY!

    YES WE CAN!
    YES WE DID!
    YES WE WILL!

  • uppity DC native

    does anyone actually listen to these toothless idiots?

  • uppity DC native

    hey C-minus...
    quit crying... it's over and YOU lost. why don't you go have sex with that fat lady. lol

  • Typical DC BS

    @cminimus: The CBO makes assumptions that any professional insurance actuary would laugh at. Don't even try to tell me that government can do a better job with health care than the private sector here in the US. Guess that's why wealthy people from around the world trust their own government health care systems so much that they come here for their treatment?

    And the dollars don't even matter. My cousin is a doctor in Maryland (internal medicine) who left a DC practice two years ago. He's shaking his head about this health care bill, as all these "millions" of people who magically will have insurance won't be able to see a primary care doctor. Try getting a primary care physician in DC now if you don't already have one.

    The laws of supply & demand trump governmental ideology.

    'uppity DC native', the answer to you're question on #15 is, YES!, other toothless idiots!

  • cminus

    hey C-minus...
    quit crying... it's over and YOU lost.

    Um, uppity DC native, I'm not crying at all. I'm cheering, because I'm on the side that won. I think you wanted to address that comment to Typical DC BS.

  • cminus

    Typical DC BS, I used to work in insurance litigation. I worked with actuaries, and the one thing they had in common was that they were all, fundamentally, loyal employees of the client. And I think a certain degree of skepticism is called for when the loyal employees of an insurance company complain that a potential client is lowballing the cost estimates. I have a lot more faith in the neutrality of the CBO, whose projections over the past could of decades across a wide range of fields have been generally conservative.

    As for your anecdote about your cousin in Maryland, I note the AMA, after playing a critical role in sinking Hillarycare, came out in favor of this bill. So it sounds like most doctors don't agree with your cousin.

    The one thing I will give you is this: right now, America is a great place to be a rich person in need of medical attention. If you have a lot of money, this is the place to be. America is, however, a pretty mediocre place to be poor or middle class and in need of medical attention. By World Health Organization rankings of the quality of medical care available to the median citizen in 2000 (the last year they tried this daunting task), we ranked 37th, behind not only much-maligned England and Canada but also such wealthy perennial powerhouses of public health as Oman, Greece, Colombia, Cyprus, Israel, Morocco, Chile, Dominica, and Costa Rica. We did edge out Cuba, at least. By two places.
