Idiot. Health is a right. Otherwise you cannot pursue that BS American dream and personal accountability BS you libertarian and republican nuts are always flogging.

 

Health is not a right. Show us in the Constitution where it says you have the "right to be healthy". I'll wait.

 

You probably also think the US is a democracy, right?

And as far as his leadership goes, it's not a client crash, not a server crash, but a systemwide meltdown.

Also, to hmm:
Apart from RAM, I've seen a couple of people with kernel panics caused by attached hardware, especially USB mouses where the cord gets too bent or frayed.

More shrill hyperbole. The influence we lost recently is because the republicans shut down the government for no gain, costing us billions of dollars. Also by threatening to not pay the people we owe money to. The leadership deficit is certainly on the republican side and they're getting desperate.

How many billions of dollars will ObamaCare cost you? It's a tax that was completely implemented and is now owned by Democrats. Speaking for myself, ObamaCare is going to cost me a hell of a lot PLUS I'm one of those who is losing their coverage thanks to this misguided monstrosity.

b) it's a client crash - what they should really be showing is a web page 500 error.

 

No, the implication is the legislation itself is failure, not the website.

What? No. Both sides are equally responsible for that, and as it has ended, it ceases to be relevant.

 

As to the earlier point of ‘health’ and rights, healthcare is not denied anyone in the United States. Healthcare ≠ health insurance. Health insurance is not a right, just as Internet access is not a right.

So, if I don't have billions at stake i don't get an opinion?

The republicans were trying to get something for nothing. And they got nothing. The relevancy is shown in the publics opinion of congress. And it may come back to bite them at election time.

Get something for… it’s the House’s job to apportion the budget.

How, when the something for which they are asking is now being proposed by the people against it not two weeks ago?

 

A year from now, John Q. Public won’t remember the shutdown.

The budget is indeed the houses job. And Boehner had every right to try to use a shutdown to negotiate. But it's a pretty risky maneuver.

Something for which they were asking? Republicans didn't put anything on the table during the shutdown. Specifically. Democrats said they'd be willing to talk after the republicans ended the shutdown.


A year is a long time in politics. But last time when Gingrich tried it it seemed to cost them.

Your ‘something for nothing’ was ‘extension for Obamacare’. The Democratic party voted against that during the shutdown and have now proposed it themselves. Seems disingenuous, doesn’t it?

Not saying FoxNews is not Right leaning, but to leave out MSNBC, CNN, CBC, ABC is itself advocacy for your Left leaning opinions, which is fine, but please don't insinuate that FoxNews has the market on bias, for EVERY other "news" organization has been an Obama advocate since day 1.

Let's keep the fact on the table as we fight please. 

 

The US cannot not pay its debt, it is unconstitutional. Would other services have been affected, yes, but not the debt payments. 

 

Republicans did not shut down the government as it takes ALL 3 branches of the government to function good or bad. 

 

The irony is the Left did not want to negotiate on the individual mandate that some are calling for now, just to save their asses in 2014. So it is ALL politics on ALL sides. 

 

For the record, I thought the fight on the individual mandate and defunding was the wrong fight, just the wrong battleground.

Again, the facts please: 

 

The Repubs put on the table defund, delay, and remove the congressional waver in 3 waves of negotiation attempts. The Dems did not negotiate at all and said they would not. Irony again is that some of them are now calling for the delay and most will have to remove the wavers for their staff. 

 

The Dems said they would negotiate after the shutdown ended so the Repubs put forth temporary spending bills that would allow such negotiations and again, the Dems would not negotiate on ACA.

 

Now that everything has blown up, and much, much more is to come, the Dems are wanting to delay the individual mandate to save their asses in 2014.

I think enough people would recognize the BSOD that they could have done this instead:


Actually, I prefer version that gives me some info about what just happened. Even if sweet ignorance is much more colourful. 1wink.gif

Dems said they'd work with reps after they ended the shutdown. And it is big legislation, I'm sure there will be changes.

The reason I say the reps are responsible for the shutdown is because obamacare was already a negotiated piece of legislation. Some people wanted single payer, some wanted no changes at all. The house and senate negotiated for something in between those choices. They passed it and the president signed it. It got taken to the Supreme Court and was found constitutional. Now of course that's not the end. I don't think politics ever ends really. Like a I said before it's Boehners right as speaker to try to defund an already passed law. It's one of the checks and balances of our government. But it doesn't have too successful of a history. I heard it was used to finally stop the war in Vietnam but I don't know the specifics at all. Nor the political fallout if any.

You've lost billions of dollars? And you have time to come on this message board? And there are millions more like you? That's amazing.

Again, I still don’t understand. They want the exact same thing now that the Republicans pushed weeks ago. Somehow it’s okay that they’re now asking for what they explicitly didn’t want? I actually read that as the Democrats being at fault for not agreeing when it mattered more.

 
And it is big legislation, I'm sure there will be changes.

 

That doesn’t count as a valid defense.

That’s not even an accurate representation of the beginning.

Right back at you.  Don't suggest that someone else's opinion is worth less because they don't earn billions of dollars when you don't either.  Don't suggest that there are "millions of others like you" when (i) you have no evidence to that fact, and (ii) even if it's true "millions" is vague and not particularly representative in a country of over 300 million.

 

And this thread was doomed, as politics was bound to enter into it, despite not really having much to do with the main story.  People ranting about partisan politics are the trolls, since the story is about Apple (specifically, the spinning beach ball) recognition.  Which is somewhat damning with faint praise, not altogether disimilar to when Bill Gates got credited with "popularising" Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

And how does the financial comparison go if deferred income is included?
