Yup, great answer.

 You do know the repubs only control 1/3 of the government, don't you? 

Ummm you know that a bill has to pass in both the house & the senate don't you? Take Immigration reform for example It has passed in the Senate & will not even be bought to the floor for a vote by John Boehner, speaker of the house. Actually, I say they control the Supreme Court also.

 You are not suggesting that this president is one of compromise? One to reach across the way and sit down with the other side to get things done? If you talk about my way or the highway, Obama is by far the leader in that chant. 

 

The entire government is messed up, and those like yourself who ONLY see your side, attributes to what you are complaining about. You only want the other side to capitulate to your. An honest look at all of government and you will see it fails completely, and that includes completely! 

 

This president has bent over backwards to compromise with Republicans. Please do some research. This is the party that, like I said, wanted to reinstate pay as you go & when the president said okay let's do that they said no we changed our minds. Please give me some examples of Republicans compromising since the Tea Party started became the tail that wags the dog.

What are you suggesting here? That instead of Apple paying their bills in a timely fashion and also showing a commitment (I don't know how many suppliers they have so hard to quantify) on their on (i.e., without the Govt. forcing this) that they should have somehow have diverted these funds for services/product provided to "to the illegal children coming to the states"?

 

I don't get the connection, care to explain?

 

BTW: Should probably have read "that money Apple paid out" instead of your "that money Apple doled up" since there was no give away at least as reported.

Yes, the idea of having 3 separate branches is so no one power exists. Anytime you have 3 equal powers, by nature, progresses is slowed.

Just because there is a process by which the law or anything works does not mean that it's purpose is to slow progress.

Well, you aren't wrong. In the case of the U.S. government, it was to slow down the process so that the citizens would have the ability to see what their government was doing. You see the devastating affects when this does not happen, as in the case with ACA where one party held all 3 branches, thus forcing the passage of a bill before it was fully vetted. To quote Pelosi,  "we have to pass it to know what is in it".

The bill was passed by an elected Congress & signed into law by an elected President. The people knew full well where the President stood on the healthcare issue.There is nothing illegal or conspiratorial going on as you seem to want to allude to. The bill was worked on for over a year & the Republican Party was invited on a regular basis to be a part of that process. They chose fear mongering as usual. The American people overwhelmingly reelected the President after the bill had passed. Now that the bill is taking effect the majority of Americans are seeing the effect of the bill & most are happy with their coverage including Republicans. You do realize that the mandate (the part Conservatives think is Unconstitutional) was a Conservative idea & was the brain child of the Heritage Foundation, a Conservative think tank. Which is pretty much what Romney Care is in Massachusetts. It's a free market solution as apposed to single payer which is what some Democrats really wanted. Which probably would have been a better solution, but then we would have to hear the constant socialist BS. This is the same party that has been trying to kill Social Security from it's inception then turns around & acts like it's the Democratic Party.

Seems the only death panels in the country are some states run by Republican Governors that are not accepting the Medicaid expansion & denying their citizens healthcare.

Sure, that's exactly how it looks right now. 

 

If you have the right to 'no taxation without proper representation' and the bill is a tax, not a penalty, and so many didn't bother to read it prior to passage (as admitted by Pelosi), then were you granted proper representation before the ACA taxation? By proper I'm suggesting that any elected official that votes to submit people to a tax, should actually have read the bill in question prior to voting.

I didn't say that, but I agree they should read the bill. This isn't an issue that is one side or the other.

Do we really have that right? There are plenty of cities in the U.S. that charge City taxes to people that work in those cities. They don't get to vote in the city elections.  That is taxation without representation, IMO. The IRS has no real mechanism to collect the tax except for taking it off any return that you may get on your taxes. They cannot put a lien on your property & there are exemptions to not pay the penalty. I don't know if this is fair, but is it fair for everyone else to pick up the tab when uninsured people go to the emergency room?

Then why are you fine with bills–particularly those that directly affect one seventh of the nation’s domestic economy–being passed without being read? That is inherently conspiratorial.

Are you fine with any legislation that is lengthy that does not get read by either side? You seem to want to narrow it down to this one bill. Why is that? I think something had to be done about healthcare. The bill can be tweaked & made better as plenty of bills are. I guess you could ask of the opponents in Congress on this bill, that didn't read it either, how do you know you don't agree with the bill if you haven't read the bill? I guess you could ask the same thing of every time someone says something is Unconstitutional. Which part of the Constitution & why?

 

Also how was the Insurance industry adversely affected by this bill?

What point are you failing to make here? The above statement has no correlation to the previous topic. If you’re saying something is unconstitutional, you know the contents of the Constitution enough to make that judgement. That has nothing to do with knowing nothing whatsoever about a bill’s contents because you didn’t read a lick of it.

 
Also how was the Insurance industry adversely affected by this bill?

 

Who said anything about insurance or adverse effects? Stop making things up, please, and just respond to what is written. This seems to be a trend whenever this stuff is brought up.

Many words from the English retain older meanings here in the USA whereas they have morphed into newer meanings in the UK. The US use of the old meanings of 'faucet, spigot and tap' in the relevant contexts as did the English back in the day, being the most obvious I can think of, whereas in the UK that's now gone and 'tap' now fulfills the meaning for faucet, spigot and tap.

 

Regardless of where you come from "dole" means to distribute or hand out, usually but not necessarily in respect of charity.  Its does not mean "pay", as in what you do in return for good and services, which is what Apple was doing in this case.

 

"Doled" is the wrong word for the title. At best its ambiguous. They should have used "Paid"

Not getting to vote is not the same as not having representation (nor any of this the same as 'proper' representation). Or are you suggesting States that have a sales tax should  not charge out of State buyers as they were not part of the election? Seriously? 

 

I'm not suggesting anything in the ACA is fair, where did you get that I was?

As a comeback, that’s pretty funny. I’ll have to use that sometime in a situation where it isn’t wrong.

That is the statement that you made seemed more general to me. Please read my answer again & tell me where in the thread before you bought it up did I mention anything about reading the bill.

Quote:

Why? So again, let's narrow it down to one person because that fits your agenda. Yeah, I do remember the opposition complaining that they did not read it because of the number of pages. So I guess in your mind if you oppose something you don't have to read the bill? Okay you win all the Republicans read the bill! Happy!  

Of course the phrase you are interested in couldn't have been taken out of context by Fox News:

What point are you failing to make here? The above statement has no correlation to the previous topic. If you’re saying something is unconstitutional, you know the contents of the Constitution enough to make that judgement. That has nothing to do with knowing nothing whatsoever about a bill’s contents because you didn’t read a lick of it.

When someone uses that, which get's thrown around quite a bit as of late, they should have to explain which part of the constitution & why. Didn't the Supreme court hear the case of the constitutionality of the ACA (mandate)?

 

 

Who said anything about insurance or adverse effects? Stop making things up, please, and just respond to what is written. This seems to be a trend whenever this stuff is brought up.

 

You said: "Then why are you fine with bills–particularly those that directly affect one seventh of the nation’s domestic economy–being passed without being read? That is inherently conspiratorial."

 

What were you speaking about when you referred to one seventh of the nation's domestic economy? Please clarify.

Regarding the "Doled" saga:

 

We are very fortunate to have english as our native tongue.  Whilst not the most widely spoken primary language worldwide, it is currently the favoured language for international communication.

 

Speaking only english will get you by in most parts of the world.  That is a huge boon to all of us and not something that anyone else can say.

 

We are also fortunate in having english as our native language because it is so expressive.  Because english is an amalgamation of at least two other languages it means that there is often more than one word for a given thing.  Those duplicated words have become subtly different over time to provide us with a highly nuanced and descriptive language.

 

If we want to maintain the status quo or even improve upon the situation that allows us these benefits, it behooves us to identify and correct any incorrect use of our language.  Over time minor differences will magnify and splinter our language until such time as our mutual intelligibility is gone.

 

Before you dismiss my sentiments as hogwash think of Latin, once the most widely spoken language in Europe and now extinct.  It was splintered into Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and more because regional differences were allowed to continue and magnify.

 

OK soapbox mode off…. :)

It is a tax imposed to ppl in or out of the State equally. Someone from Texas visiting California has no representation, but pays the same sales tax.

Yes. I know what a sales tax is. How is a sales tax the same as a city income tax that is imposed on non-residents that work in a city? Nothing is being purchased.

If you can’t hold a conversation, shut up and go away. Anyone with a rudimentary grasp of the English language can comprehend the words that have been written. You are apparently unwilling or unable to do so. You’ve revoked any position you may have otherwise had.

Yeah, he doesn't get what you are talking about either. Because you make no point. How about you go away or shut up? You probably can't cause this is your life. You're a wind bag. I didn't mention anything about the bill being read until you bought it up, as I said. I gave you an answer by saying I think the bill should be read & gave you a link, to how the quote that you keep referring to that Pelosi made, may have been taken out of context. Since a bill is not voted on when it is introduced to the floor of the House, it is still being amended & crafted before it gets voted on.  I asked you if it would be fair if opponents of the legislation did not read the bill to vote on it. You, as usual, had no concrete answer & said I have to prove it in your usual codescending way. While you proved nothing or say much of anything that is coherent. Are you medicated?

 

You said: "Then why are you fine with bills–particularly those that directly affect one seventh of the nation’s domestic economy–being passed without being read? That is inherently conspiratorial."

I responded previous to this by asking you a question about how this would adversely affect Insurance compaies which is what I thought you were referring to when you said what is bolded in your quote above. You responded as usual with a non-answer. I then asked you to clarify what you meant by "particularly those that directly affect one seventh of the nation’s domestic economy"

​you again respond with a non answer Your response; "Try just reading the post instead. It really helps if you read the words that are written instead of inventing your own." What the hell does that mean are you even talking to the correct person? Your responses make absolutely no sense & then you piggyback them on your other babbling half sentence gibberish. Then you accuse me of telling everyone I am always right when I am just expressing a different point of view. Pound salt.

Because you make no point.

 

“You don’t have a clue what you’re even discussing, as shown by your cluelessness regarding the content of one of your own posts.”

 

That should have been clear to you already. Tell me to reword it again if it’s still too hard for you to get.

 
I didn't mention anything about the bill being read until you bought it up, as I said.

 

So you don’t refute the point that the bill was not read by its signatories before passage, correct?

 

…to how the quote that you keep referring to…

 

So once is “keep” now, is it?

 

 that Pelosi made, may have been taken out of context.

 

asdf

 
I asked you if it would be fair if opponents of the legislation did not read the bill to vote on it.

 

Fair in what regard? 

 
You, as usual

 

It’s almost as though you really DON’T have a clue what you’re saying and aren’t just doing this on purpose.

 
Are you medicated?

 

Great argument¡

 
I responded previous to this by asking you a question about how this would adversely affect Insurance compaies which is what I thought you were referring to when you said what is bolded in your quote above.

 

And you were wrong in thinking that, and I immediately replied correcting your misconception.

 
You responded as usual with a non-answer.

 

Your inability or refusal to read the English language does not equate to a lack of an answer. Your refusal to accept the answer also does not equate to the lack of an answer.

 
I then asked you to clarify what you meant by "particularly those that directly affect one seventh of the nation’s domestic economy"

 

And, as mentioned above and in a post earlier, I already did that.

 
What the hell does that mean are you even talking to the correct person?

 

So I’m correct, then. You don’t comprehend the English language. Fine, I’ll rewrite the sentence. Tell me what part of “Try just reading the post instead. It really helps if you read the words that are written instead of inventing your own.” is confusing and I’ll explain it to you.

 
Your responses make absolutely no sense & then you piggyback them on your other babbling half sentence gibberish.

 

More irony, anyone?

 
Pound salt. 

 

Yes, you have absolutely no argument whatsoever and are incorrect in what you have said. Thanks for reaffirming that.

I asked you to clarify twice your "one seventh of the economy" statement twice. I recounted everything we talked about, with your responses in a previous post. You haven't said anything of substance.

I'll repeat: It is a tax imposed to ppl in or out of the State equally. Someone from Texas visiting California has no representation, but pays the same sales tax. 

 

Neither in the case of sales tax, or city tax does an outsider paying that tax have any representation.

Yes Richard,

I was looking at it from the angle that one is a voluntary purchase & one is a tax taken out of every check for working in a certain city. I also realize that non residents pay state taxes. So, your point is taken.

You don't voluntarily work for someone?

I was wrong. You don't live in the city that you are paying taxes to, that was the angle I was looking at it from. I already said that I got your point.
