The state of CA is a crazy, gilded society. People vote liberal in part because they dislike income disparity. Meanwhile they live among the worst of it in the USA. They claim to value "personal freedom" yet have the most restrictions on virtually everything in sight. In large parts of the state you need to make six figures to just lead a meager existence. Poop and needles litter the sidewalks in SF. LA is a homeless capital.

There is not enough money to get me to live there. I don't want to even visit again for the most part.



There's a quote I hear on reddit all the time regarding politics: rules for thee, but not for me. sounds like it applys in CA a lot.

I like how that's phrased very much.

I usually say, "Nobody proposes laws or regulations to stop THEMSELVES from doing something. It's always to stop someone else doing something they disapprove of."

Yours is much more concise.

45,000 people die a year in the U.S. because they can't afford medical care, despite the U.S. having the highest per capita expenditure for healthcare in the world. [

\

What are you talking about? I just listed off a bunch of them.

Costa Rica, a major "medical tourism" destination is not green, but the un-de-marked gray. And what is the source for that 45,000m fatalities a year?



This kind of figure is always suspect as there is a lot of guessing involved. On one hand, the ER is full of people who go then refuse to pay their bill so "we all pay." The next minute, people are passing on medical care because they cannot afford it. Whatever suits the narrative of those who want socialized medicine at the time I guess.

Many who die because they "cannot afford it" are probably simply making a value judgment. I am predisposed to certain types of cancer, but have already decided I will no way do chemo, even if I could afford it. This could be counted as "he could not afford it so he did not take treatment." Or maybe I can afford it but it would near wipe me out. I'd rather just have a shorter but higher quality of life and leave my money to the dog shelter.

For comparison we need to find out how many die in places like Canada and the UK because they had to wait for care.

Coulter may primary Trump from the right, making those debates must see tv. I wonder if the other "news networks" will enter their own candidates. Now that trump has abandoned the cement makers of the country in favor of steel, will they still support him?

I would suggest that the Democrats really just need someone that voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania like a little bit more than Hillary. All three states, which had voted Democratic for POTUS since 1992, Hillary lost by razor-thin margins.

Candidates elected POTUS do tend to get re-elected. Since 1968 only Carter and Bush 41 have lost re-election bids.

However, Trump has proven to be a profoundly unpopular president. Compared to the preceding twelve presidents, Trump has consistenly the lowest approval ratings. This does not mean Trump can't win in 2020. Though it does suggest a low ceiling to support for Trump.

In recent POTUS elections Republicans generally seem to have a low ceiling. Since 1992, with one exception, Republicans have received no more than 47.9% of the popular vote. Over the same time frame Democrats, with one exception, have received at least 48.2% of the popular vote. As unlikable as Hillary appears, nearly three million more voters liked her more than Donald for POTUS in 2016.

So, again, Democrats just need a candidate a little bit more likable than Hillary.

How difficult can that be?

It seems like Bernie really did make a big impact, in a great way even after he lost if people are still looking at him as a sort of Blueprint and trying to follow in his footsteps.

I don't care who she slept with...I do care about how we will pay for all of the things they are promising.

If I ask a person if they want free health care, it is fairly easy to get a "yes" answer.

If I tell the same person how much extra in taxes will be required, the "yes" answer is a little harder.

If that same person finds out that, because of their income level, the new taxes required will cost them more than the insurance they are currently paying for and our fairly happy with, the "yes" answer becomes really hard.

"Free" is great...until you have to pay for it!

Color you amazed at me then. While dying on the street is a rare occurrence, it does happen with homeless.

Life isnít fair that someone is homeless, therefore I should either let them move in with me, or we should give them a home. But what about their utilities then? And food? And what about cigarettes?

Ok, we give everyone in America free homes and HC. What about those starving and homeless around the world? Should we pay for them as well? Where does it end?

One could argue in many places around the world humans have no chance to ever have a decent life based on factors they can not control. Can you say that about anyone of sound Body & Mind in America?

So should we help others around the world instead of people here who made life choices to be a drain on working society?

If only people with health insurance were given medical attention, people would literally die on the streets daily.

The other day I was talking to a friend. Donít remember how, but Canada got brought up. He said something about free healthcare being awesome. I said - you do realize, itís not actually free, right? He was adamant that itís 100% free, all paid for by government, people pay nothing.

At that point I realized that trying to describe to him how it actually works (IE: government doesnít just have infinite money, and that doctors and medicine cost money, and the whole tax thing existing) would be like trying to teach Calculus to a dog when it has no sense of something as basic as addition.

And no, heís not poor or anything like that. He does well for himself and is comfortable financially, but heís not loaded. Itís not like heís trying to live off the governmentís teet like some hooligans.

This is what feeds the Socialist tendencies showing up in the Democrat party right now. If they can say it and convince enough ignorant people to believe in it being "free", they don't have to worry about nasty little things like costs and raising the money to cover those costs. Unless a more center-leaning Democrat gets traction, they will get all the way to the nomination without really being pushed by their own side on the tremendous cost of "free."

Nothing we give ourselves is free...they befuddle their uneducated and educated fools by telling them the "government" is giving it to them. Those folks don't remember, or weren't taught, that the government is paid for by the people.

I'm not happy with any of the fiscal irresponsibility out there; Republicans are not free of guilt for that.

If these crazy Democratic Socialists gain significant power, they will screw things up worse than any of us can imagine.

If a homeless person dies in the street, they are dying at home. Who wouldn't want that?

That may sound cruel to some, but as long as it's fairly quick I'd prefer that to 15 years intubated in a nursing home with someone cleaning me when they got around to it.

Some homeless still have their pride.

Iím down with voluntarily helping paying for healthcare of under 18 if you want to make the public education comparison. That comparison ends at 18-22 age range though. It should all be free for life though with endless free college too. That New York lady and Bernie said so.

Ya don't say? Thanks for pointing that out. There's a lot of "ignorant" and "uneducated fools" that think they are voting for the party of fiscal responsibility.

Democrats = Tax & Spend

Way too generous towards me. Sarcasm is meant to make light or humor at something. Nothing funny about supporting drug dealers, slackers, serial breeders and other general low lives in the name of helping a few hard working Americans who actually deserve help with their insurance needs.

Bottom line is far more Americans die weekly from self induced drug and other health issues than die from not have Health Insurance in the streets.

But keep the narrative up if you think it will change public opinion and help win elections. Never let facts get in the way of a good sob story.

An affair with married San Francisco mayor,
Willie Brown; a $50,000 night on the town in
L.A. with LAPD escorts at the expense of the
cityís taxpayers.

Failures to prosecute a bank owner whose
foreclosures of thousands of California homes
was suspicious; forging documents; defending
a child molester; covering up the San Francisco
Archdiocese sex abuse scandals, telling
a joke on Ellenís talk show wanting Trump dead.
Add to that she's hugely arrogant and full of
herself, traits that don't play well in a candidate.

Gosh I hope she wins the nomination..

40 years ago when my Dad talked about bleeding Heart Liberals I never knew how right he was. Sorry Dad, RIP



When my dad admitted that his boomer generation is the worst generation, I knew exactly how right he was.

Ya don't say? Thanks for pointing that out. There's a lot of "ignorant" and "uneducated fools" that think they are voting for the party of fiscal responsibility.

Republicans = Borrow & Spend

Democrats = Tax & Spend

We have the self-proclaimed "king of debt" running things right now. This one should be pretty easy to figure out, even for the ignorant and uneducated fools.



That all sounds grand, if it were true. There have been five (5) years in the last 50 without a deficit. Republican Presidents, Democrat Presidents, Republican Congresses, Democrat Congresses, Split Congresses. The people we elect from both parties are very poor at controlling spending.

I don't see the potential movement of Democratic Socialists into the government changing the situation. They don't say much about how to pay for the stuff they want to give for "free"...because they aren't really challenged on it. They may well have a candidate make it all the way to the nomination without really being seriously asked about how they will pay for it.

But yet when a Congresswoman proposes a top marginal tax rate of 70% for income over 10 million, we have Fox News and right wing pundits misleading their viewers and listeners into thinking she wants to tax your entire income at 70%. Makes you wonder, what are they scared of? Are they intentionally misleading their audience? Or are they ignorant? Do they understand that top marginal tax rates in our country used to be 90%? Back when America "was great"?

Why not tell the truth about it? It's obviously time to have that conversation. $1 trillion deficits are back baby!

The self-proclaimed "King of Debt" assured us of that, didn't he.

Iím going to assume your father isnít a member here and while I donít think he is a public figure, he is still open game here like President Trump.

So Iím going to say he was obviously a loser in life and was a disappointment to many. And it appears he was a bitter man for never making anything of his life and blaming others for his life decisions. Sad, but not unexpected.

No clue how you see him.

Time for another new rule?

Like Trump, I have very strong opinions about Kamala Harris and these issues. But that's only because of the political party she belongs to. If this was about someone on the other side, my opinions would be the complete opposite. I think that is one thing everyone here can agree on.
