1.7 Trillion. If you have a better source, I welcome it. Much of our military budget is hidden in other budget categories via legalese. I assure you, the corruption runs deep.
That's exactly how I feel here. How dare you expect me to pay this insurance for you? I haven't been to the hospital in years!
If I need something done to me I'm driving to Mexico anyway! Their healthcare is less expensive and higher quality!
THIS. The Supreme Court does nothing but maintain the status quo, only changing its mind later when the status quo fears the alternative: actual rebellion.
Recognize that you are supporting slavery in a minor form by forcing someone to do something preemptively.
I mean it. I don't want you to pay for my hospital bills unless you want to. Hospitals should not be required to provide healthcare.
I will die if I must, but the abolishment of all forms of slavery will indeed be complete.
Give me liberty or give me death. Really, I welcome it.
Our government spends trillions a year killing and maiming men, women and children around the world and doling out funds to their buddies. If they want to get me insured, give me insurance, don't force me to pay for something I can already not afford.
I shouldn't have to sign up for shit.
This shit is so unconstitutional. How dare you fine me for not buying your services.
Money is speech according to the Supreme Court, and so I say no to Obama care.
I'm making use of my first amendment by not giving my money to this system.
We cannot fix the mistakes of the past be reversing them in the present, but by making the playing field level and allowing the balance to solve itself in the coming generations.
Don't fight racism and sexism with reversed racism and sexism, fight it with egalitarianism! Do not try to repair the past, for that in itself is impossible. Just solve the root of the problem and let the effects sort themselves. Do not try to solve each and every improper effect or risk further significant damage to the playing field.
Why would you be doing that? Libertarians are known for wanting to revert to the gold standard. You know, the one originally enshrined in the US Constitution that has long since been disbanded.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership (except for the purposes of jewelery) in 1933. Think about that. Also, realize the Federal Reserve is a private entity not within nor controlled by the United States Government.
The US Constitution: Article 1, Section 10
"No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility."
According to the United States Constitution, the Federal Reserve Note is entirely illegal, unconstitutional and void.
I'm not blaming either side for anything, the entire system is nearly completely corrupt. There is no government, just enforcers. I want people to stop telling themselves that the 90's were a good time under Clinton. He was just as bad as every other president. They're all bad.
Instead of giving $3.5 trillion to the banks, he should have given it directly to the people that got screwed in this catastrophe. Obama has rewarded the banks for failing.
Of course, that mess was directly caused by the Clinton Administration's removal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933.
I'm currently watching through the DS9 series. The other day I came across an episode, a two-parter, that was sort of shockingly close to reality. If started off with Cisco accidentally going back in time and ending up in our near future (within a few decades). The majority of the population had been moved into walled-ghettos because they didn't know what to do with all of the jobless people, so they hid them all away from the job-having class so as not to have to deal with actual social change.
I was sort of left in awe as the episode came out in the 90s yet felt very much similar to what might end up happening to Occupy Wall Street. They were certainly treated by the government in a *very* similar manner.
Another reason to plant more trees.
What is bad for the economy is when the wealthy hoard money within corporate international banks who, instead of reinvesting locally like a credit union, loan the money to 3rd world businesses which then go on to undercut local sales for lack of environmental and human rights regulations.
