American Ryan

Above all else I am an American and I believe in freedom, limited government, and personal responsibility.

Yes, I would sacrifice four years of my life to have to serve as president in order to get rid of universal healthcare for all time.

One of our greatest presidents, most history books give him a sentence or two.

Today I went to try to get some more Claritin-D 24 (generic version because I don’t like wasting my money if I can avoid it) since I took the last of this 15 pack this morning. I had not bought any since last spring before getting this current package, I then took one daily (that’s what the 24 means) since that purchase two weeks ago before running out today and going to get more.
I was told I would not be able to get the larger package again until the 23rd. I settled for a ten pack and when I confirmed it was the 23rd when the other size would be available I was told it would be later now since I had gotten the smaller one. For anyone not great at math, 7 (tomorrow’s date) + 10 daily pills = the 17th (the next day I will run out of pills) + 6 (days suffering without allergy medication) = 23rd + x (unknown days until I will suffer before actually being able to get more medication).
I then pointed out that it seemed silly that I couldn’t get enough of the daily allergy pill to actually take one daily. The woman working the pharmacy told me, “That’s not the intention of the federal law.” If I had not been in a bit of a hurry I may well have blown up at her a bit at that point.
I don’t care at all what the intent of any law is. Laws do not affect people based on their intent. The actual effect of the law is that I have to go get a prescription from a doctor in order to get a month’s worth of over the counter medicine every month. To be able to use the damned thing as it is supposed to be used I have to jump through hoops to overcome restrictions from some stupid ass federal law.
This is not even getting into the whole issue of drug regulations basically falling under the tenth amendment and therefor constitutionally not within the purview of the federal government at all but rather the states. I know that whole commerce clause bullshit comes into play and is used for them to overreach their designed power and control parts of our life that they have no business at all having anything to do with. 
But the legality and constitutionality of such a law aside, the law is amazingly stupid because it does not allow normal, law-abiding citizens to purchase and use a product as it is designed to be used. Regardless of the intent of such a law it is a horribly stupid and needless intrusion into the lives of average citizens who have done nothing wrong.
And, knowing a bit about the people in our government, I am not even really all that sure such overreach and intrusion actually is against the intent of the law anyway.

Kind of shows who the politicians believe their enemies are.

What happened, Joe? I don’t hear you expressing protest about the debt now.

The establishment politicians know that cutting government spending is popular so they use the argument to fight anything they are against. They don’t actually give a shit about the level of spending, which becomes obvious whenever the spending is in favor of something they support.

I once again have made the false assumption that complete idiots can not only read and comprehend written English but can also understand a joke.

I apologize.

Laws for all should NOT be based on circumstances that make up that percentage of the whole.

Especially when those laws legalize killing the innocent.

For comparison, here are a few other percentages we could maybe base policy on:

  • 6% of voters believe bin Laden is still alive
  • 4% believe shape-shifting reptilians control the world by taking on human form
  • 9% doubt the Holocaust actually happened
  • 5% believe exhaust seen in the sky behind airplanes is actually chemicals sprayed by the government for sinister reasons
  • 6% believe the moon landing was staged or fake
  • 5% believe obama was definitely born in a country other than the US

What's your opinion on nationalists healthcare, like canada?

usaryan:

The list of things that are handled better by large national governments than by the private sector or individuals is not very long and it most certainly does not include healthcare funding, I think systems like Canada’s and Britain’s and obamacare demonstrate that fact very well.

AHAHHAHAHA FUCKING MORON

The US’ healthcare pre obama care was the world 37th
Cuba was 39

Every single place above the US is socialised 
youre a fucking hundred years behind, jesus christ

Yeah, yeah, well hitler was the 24th before WWII and FDR was 32nd

You’re totally off, Jesus was over 2000 years ago, not a fucking hundred

The only place I know of above the US is Canada, so you’re right they are socialized. But wait, what if I hold the map upside down?

I also never said that our system before obamacare was not horrible, it was. Mostly because of stupid government interference and regulations. The problem is that this effort to fix it has moved in a direction which can only make it worse.

The people have the power. That is how the USA was set up.

That sounds a lot like Washington’s America too. And Franklin’s, Jefferson’s, Hancock’s, Madison’s, Adam’s. I think you get my point.

So like just claiming that a debate on something, oh, let’s say climate change, is over? That would qualify as pretending to have all the answers, wouldn’t it?

Good people disobey bad laws

I’ve got to disagree here, good people obey bad laws until they change or repeal them.
