My guess is that there are Less people who have health insurance now... than before it passed.

There you go guessing again. If you want us to believe all of the doom you are saying, show some real evidence. Just standing hear spouting your guesses doesn't accomplish anything.

No. It's not. Intelligent people get their information from the source, and not biased bloggers and reporters. Your bloggers are not scions of fact. That would be like us using Huffington Post to "prove" something. No reason to do that. It is just another opinion. We don't cite NBC or ABC or any reporter as proof of anything.

Real information comes from records, and not anecdotes, or suspicions. The fact is that you don't know if the ACA will be a net positive or negative because you haven't given it time to even be implemented and the market to adjust. It will be at least 4 years before we know what the effects are. All you have are predictions about how it will ruin the country.

The voting record of congress is a citation you can use for proof. Breitbart is just another person's opinion. They teach this stuff in critical thinking classes. You might check it out. You could learn the difference between a reliable citation source and an opinion.

An evolutionist is so in love with his religion that he will easily ignore the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics to claim that every living thing made itself out of nothing. Not just impossible, but never will be possible.

I don't know any evolutionists that think "every living thing made itself out of nothing". Could you cite a reputable scientific source for your assertion?

Some scientists and I believe amino acids were created by atmospheric energy and basic chemical reactions. Once you have amino acids, all it takes is some of them to bond into proteins. It goes on from there and I don't have the space here to explain it all, but basically your assertion is bull crap.

And the second law only applies to closed systems. Earth is not a closed system.

You are totally missing the fact that MS manipulated the PC market all during the 90's. I worked for a major computer manufacturer. Every cpu that went out had to have a Windows license, even if the user was purchasing it to run SCO or Netware. If we didn't agree to that, they would not license Windows to us, which at the time, would have been death for a PC manufacturer. Total abuse of the monopoly on desktop OS market to control the whole x86 market.

To the landlord belongs the doorknobs.
