Seriously? That's what you focus on? Yes, Soros too. Hillary Clinton. Obama if that makes you happy. You think I'm being partisan about this or something?
emember this: Capitalism as it stands in the US and many other countries on the planet is slavery, with chains made of debt and worry instead of iron and steel.

Exactly how does one get a bee sting in the penis?
RIght. We've already established that you care about corporations, big banks and the ultra rich ... I care about normal people.

Bull and crap.
Then why am i paying TRIPLE taxation ?
Pay the income tax.
PAy the medicare capital gains surtax.
PAy the medicare tax AGAIN.
The since I 'make too much ' money I have to pay another TAX called the 'alternative minimum tax.
Ya know that thing for people that have to pay MORE taxes because they made smarter decisions with their money, and even though they fell into a specific tax bracket.
I have to pay MORE.
I suggest you READ the Gun Control Act of 1968, The NFA Act of 1934, The Brady Handgun 'Prevention Act' of 1993' and the 'Assault' Weapons ban of 1994.
All created by the 'small' government loving, staying out of peoples lives
I especially like the Brady 'LAW' that created the first time Americans ever had to ask the STATE for permission to exercise their RIGHT.
BUY a corporate product or ELSE. Get taxed!
VIVA la liberte. VIVA staying out of the peoples lives.
And last time I Checked intelligence was determined by how many of someone else's money was suppose to make them 'smart'.
When the reality the education system in this country is a JOKE.
Because the LEFT WING is the most intrusive group of people in this country, but they sure do love to point the finer at the right.
Hell between ss,medicare,medicare,food stamps,education,healthcare,gun control,climate change.
Seem the party that was created by a slave owner still wants to be 'masters' of the universe.
Taxpayers paid for one scientist to have a bee sting his penis and paid other researchers to figure out that cheerleaders look more attractive in a group than individually,
I have read them and I cannot find any parts in the bill that say you can only buy and own x number of guns.
Yeah no thanks to the right and trying to push idiotic things like intelligent design being a scientific theory or that climate change is a farce, or even the right's general disdain for science and higher education in general. Yea, that doesn't have ANYTHING to do with dropping educational standards. It's 100% the left's fault. /sarc
Pot calling the kettle black. No one even brought up the left/right partisan divide until you entered the thread, homie

Congratulations for Ignoring reality.
The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) was designed to keep wealthy taxpayers from using loopholes to avoid paying taxes. But because it was not automatically updated for inflation, more middle-class taxpayers were getting hit with the AMT each year. Congress traditionally passed an annual "patch" to address this until, in January 2013, as part of the "fiscal cliff" deal, they passed a permanent patch to the AMT.
Didn't look very hard.
That's a far cry from the lefts the 'planet is out to git us'.
The rich are out to git us.
Gunz are out to git us.
Corporations are out to git us.
Mosanto is out to git us.
Gold man Sachs is out to git us.,
Actually the 'partisan divide was brought up way back here.www.abovetopsecret.com...
Lol right above that post is one of your partisan tinted troll posts. Heck, you have partisan troll posts on page 1 too, and that link is from page 2. Nice try homie.
I mean you are complaining about $50,000 spent on a study while the government is dumping BILLIONS into wars, death, destruction, and other stuff that we find questionable. Get your priorities straight...
Dunno why all that when most people agree spending tax payer money on getting stung by bees was pretty ASININE.
That has taken over 120 million+ people out of the private market.
Corporations don't own the governments.
Who cares what they think? Not a single person in this thread read the hypothesis, report, study, conclusion or any other part of the study to learn what was leaned, how it could be applied or the reasoning for the study. Everyone just latched onto the sensationalized title and the buzzphrase "waste of money" and just adopted the outrage position. Typical ATS kneejerk reaction. I certainly take the majority opinion on ATS with a HUGE grain of salt, especially when it comes to science topics.
Not a single one of them under stand the scientific method.
No it didn't because these people couldn't have afforded the private market in the first place. The majority of the programs you mentioned are mainly used by those who are minors, the disabled and the elderly these people have next to no income so how could they afford private insurance?
I have now decided not to listen to your opinion on educational standards in this country ever again.
The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry is commonly based on empirical or measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the scientific method as "a method or procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses."
