Much of my time in the CG was during the Clinton Administration and I don't recall any difference in the war on drugs when we transitioned to the Bush administration. In fact, I believe we were upgrading to the HITRON airship before GWB was elected and that multi-million dollar projects' sole purpose was drug interdiction.




Anyway, I think your comment was off-base my friend. Wal-Mart owns the blame for this guy losing his job.

I certainly agree with the need for guidelines to protect individuals from companies dropping them only to avoid costly treatments or procedures that are necessary.

One thing I find interesting is how Obama showcased someone whose mother died because she did not have insurance to cover a necessary procedure (I believe).

So I wonder if these types of cases would be would ever be publicized if the government decided against a necessary procedure because it was too expensive or that the likelihood of success was too low and the person died in a similar manner....

This does happen in some countries with socialized medicine, doesn't it?

Yep. And it's even worse in Oregon. Their public health plan cuts off people who are too expensive and the "no more" letter offers to pay for assisted suicide. That is absolutely repugnant.
Thanks for clarifying Godfather.

So when an individual dies that can't afford health insurance it is showcased by Obama as an evil of capitalism, but when the government does the exact same thing it is "OK".

Hmmmmm. So the only real "change" is that the government will be doing it so it is OK now?

Am I missing something?

Well, unless you didn't notice our switch to socialism, I'd say you're up to speed.

Thanks brother.

I am sure I am missing something though as I am a conservative.

As for the socialism comment, I think that is a bit harsh and undeserved. Obama is all for freedom and liberty imo.

So I would love to hear some other thoughts and perspectives, especially from anyone on the left who is involved in this thread and has made intelligent and relevant comments.

wal mart is definitely to blame for firing the dude. 100% bogus.

about as bogus as the likes of them and home depot keeping majority employees as non full time status to save millions in benefits and health care costs.

perhaps that needs reformed too.

If you want to blame a president, why not Clinton or Obama? Neither of them changed our BS legal stance on it either.
Actually, no it is not.

While the state has said it was legal, federal laws still say it is illegal. The courts have repeatedly ruled that federal laws trump state laws.
