  • How long have you been a Buffalo fan?
    Since my diaper days.
  1. Don;t waste your time. I don't even read your shit anymore. More like a cat spat up a hairball on my screen when I see the crap you post. Catch a clue from Meat.
  2. Understood. The trouble with a socialist society its like a cancer, it will spread no matter the good intentions.
  3. To hammer this "Socialism doesn't work" home more, a real live test. https://danieljmitchell.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/does-socialism-work-a-classroom-experiment/ An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all). After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that. There are five morals to this story: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation. ================================= I’ll make one final point. There are five morals to the story, but there are dozens of nations giving us real-world examples every day.
  4. I see this as something that is two sided, meaning you can not create a utopia either way with Government health care. You either cover everyone and sink the economy or you don't and piss some people off. Either way Obama care was nothing more than a two pronged attack on the people. Had nothing to do with taking care of them but more of a make his friend's rich and more centralized power for the Democrats.... or Socialism. I do not support socialism or socialist health care with the exception of children and elderly. Socialism has never worked in any country for more than a few decades, look at Venezuela. A single payer system (the government) creates only higher prices as there is no competition. Even government price fixing will still drive health care higher than free market levels. The problem with our health care is they will not allow you to shop it across state lines. The Insurance companies, doctors and politicians know this and like it that way (Insurance and doctors can now price fix). Health care can be affordable without the governments involvement. At the most it should be left to the states.... We are all stuck in this "Government will take care of everything mode," when has the government done anything right? There should be more thinking outside the box, Concierge medicine for example (i.e. Wichita-based AtlasMD) is so cost effective because they by-pass health insurance completely. Meat, it is funny that you mention the GOP as "sick, immoral, disgusting, and wholly unacceptable." There is very little out there to justify those claims any more. The Left has such over site on the Right that you will see very little issues of corruption, and illegal/immoral issues. If so they will stand on their collective heads point fingers yet completely ignore the complete corruption of the Democratic party examples: four fired the day of the DNC for collusion and their racist remarks, the complete set of Clinton issues, Comey (friend of Clinton's), you're own Chucky Schumer and Obama himself. There was even more Liberal Judges just recently indited. So, your own Left has created a "Better" Republican party while they spin down the toilet. Surprised.... you're better than that.
  5. I was at the game, in the corner about the 20 yard line, watching that play. Still remember it.
  6. Aside from the Ghetto Grammar, that was a good story.
  7. Coffee, I think the generational thing is a myth. You either like them or no. chinchilla on the back? Never heard of that....
  8. HEY! This is about Ink, not politics. Take that shit somewhere else! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
  9. I am a sailor (retired) and a biker (not retired). Each peace of ink is very personal to me, my children's names, may family name and my favorite animal (wolf). Soon to be joined with a semi-transparent Angel with the scroll of the dead. After that is of Jesus, which I spent years look for the right art for it and finally found it. So, no Jackass-ary here. I do think it can be over done as well, however if people take the time and peace the ink together there can be some amazing body art out there.
