Adam is one of those asstards who feels the need to inject their politics into everything they possibly can, like their political viewpoint is their dick and they just downed a bottle of Viagra. Nobody cares what you think about Obama, dickwad, especially when they’re not even talking about politics.
I want to beat Adam to death with a hammer, but he’d probably just scream about it being Obama’s fault that I’m caving his skull in with one of the symbols of Communism.
Does no one realize he’s talking about Scott Brown, the newly elected Republican senator in Massachusetts? He was elected in a shocking race in usually Democratic Massachusetts to take over for the late Ted Kennedy’s seat? Him being elected has likely killed the health care bill because it took away the Democrats’ 60-person hold on congress…. No one? Really?
Not sure why Scott Brown’s name was blocked out, but for our international friends out there, he won the Massachusetts special election for the seat held previously by Ted Kennedy. Righties are rejoicing, lefties are mourning, but in reality, the American Political Process is just as constipated as it’s always been, regardless of who would have won that election.
I don’t know what so many Americans have against “socialised” health care anyway. We have it in Australia and it’s great. I had a back injury a couple of years back and my doctor’s visits were free, my x-rays were free, and the 10 pills a day I had to take for 3 weeks and the 1 pill a day for 3 weeks after that totaled $14AUD. I don’t call that socialism. I call it hella convenient.
Err I only read the status bit and the first comment, and why you just picking on me “insert clever name here”? I’m not the only one who thought it was GORDON Brown. So get off your high horse and jog on FAIL.
@ insert clever name here: Are you just one of these that come onto Lamebook to argue with people and shoot them down about their spelling/grammar. I heard not only do Americans not have a clue about anything that happens outside their own country, but 90% of them don’t even own a passport!
@blondie1508 – How is it that I fail? And, no I am not one of those people although the snark is part of the reason LB comments “used”to be funny. Now everyone’s feelings are so fragile for some reason.
Furthermore, what difference does it make if people have passports? America is much much bigger than the UK. Within our borders we have every kind of beach imaginable, deserts, prairies and mountain ranges so there is not much reason to leave the country to experience the beauty this planet has to offer. America also offers a huge variety of people and cultures from all over the world who are kind enough to share their customs and passions with us. It’s true that we are a young country and unfortunately lack some of the beautiful architecture of the rest of the world but I guarantee that the reason Americans don’t travel outside the country that often is not because they don’t want to. I’ve never met a person who didn’t want to see the pyramids or the acropolis or the Sydney Opera House, they simply can’t afford to. For the record, how many times have you been to the US? I’ve been to England 5 times. London is my second favorite city after New York, of course. Also, though I am American, I’ve lived in Greece, Germany and Brazil. I’ve visited France, Holland, Switzerland, Egypt, South Africa, Italy, Luxemburg, Spain and some more I can’t think of right now. So before you start spouting off about Americans, I suggest you do some research and don’t just go by what you heard.
Actually, pretty good idea to have a passport even if you don’t PLAN on traveling.
I didn’t renew mine after it expired last time, and then my in-laws wanted me to go on vacation with them, but I didn’t get my passport back in time.
@EmKitteh It’s rich white Americans who have something against socialized health care, because they are deluded into thinking that everyone could be just as rich and white as them if we just worked harder. They honestly believe they have leveled the playing field in just one generation since segregation ended, and some of them actually believe there is no prejudice in America because we have laws against it now. The millions of us who cannot afford private insurance, or who work a wage slave job that doesn’t provide it, are not against it.
I love how some American politicians have people believe that health care reform is evil socialism. It’s beyond retarded. And Canada’s health care gets bashed by these same politicians but yet I don’t know anyone up here that would trade our health care for yours. The rhetoric is unbelievable to me.
@#16 If we called black people “brown,” what would we call Indians/Pakistanis, etc?
@#43 You can’t say that people are against the Health Care Reform for race-based reasons, that’s just ignorant. Most people are for reform, just not the bills that were rushed through both houses because of Obama’s incredibly over-ambitious goal of one year that forced them to cut corners. The biggest problem I, personally, had with the bills is that they mandated that people have health insurance, and if they didn’t, they’d be taxed. Some people out there don’t want health insurance, and they shouldn’t be forced to buy it. The ultimate goal should be to make health insurance more affordable and accessible to those who wish to buy it, not 100% coverage (which neither bill would have achieved anyway).
socialised health care is a bad thing HOW? i dont know anything about politics but i dont see how people can be in favour of spending hundreds/thousands of dollars on pills and medicine which in England is like the equivalent of less than $10. i dunno, other than potentially huge government spending increase and debt (which is already there anyway..)
Well after a little research I see that was a bad estimate… however, the distance between here (Ohio) and California is 800 miles further than the distance from London to the Ukraine. And in that distance I would have used my passport 0 times, while you would have used yours 6 times. So why do I need a passport?
I THINK and I quote think because I saw it on information for a flight to Spain last year, that to travel in Europe a passport is not needed, just photo identification such as a driving licence. So if that is the case then lilmudface no I wouldn’t have used my passport 6 times. How did you figure 6 times out anyway? Do you not have direct flights in America?
Awwwwww, leave lilmudface alone, he is quite happy playing in dirt with no shoes on fantasizing about fucking his sister to have any need to expand his horizons by traveling outside of his own county let alone his country. Poor little fella.
@ Sensible Madness. I’m Adam, aka. dickwad, asstard, Viagra abuser… You’re absolutely right about everything you said about me. I’m sorry that a private facebook conversation between my wife and I upset you so much. Please find it in your heart to forgive me. I’m sorry that my comment offended you. Your right, I use my penis to inject my political opinions when ever I can. From now on I’ll try to think less with my penis and more with my head when it comes to politics. Again, please forgive me. When I lay my head on pillow tonight, I will say a silent prayer for you.. and ask god to help me with my political erection. I hope this isn’t to little to late, but I’ve learned my lesson… I won’t be able to swing a hammer for the rest of my life without a heavy heart thinking of what might have been if you hadn’t saved me. Thank you for opening my eyes to how much of an asstard I have become. God bless you.
btw. I’m an Iraq war vet and a police officer.. You’ll need a lot more than a hammer. I make a difference every day with my ACTIONS, not comments. Thank you for being hilariously stupid. VOTE OBAMA! YES WE CAN!
@ adam aka gewtersnake. I’m pretty sure Iraq war vets and police officers can still be killed by a hammer to the dome. Thank you for the service to our country but that doesn’t stop you from being accountable for having ignorant views. Obama is no saint but he isn’t all bad either. The problems you listed were not caused by Obama or Bush or any one person but rather are generational problems. Maybe instead of trying to place blame for ideological purposes, go out and try to solve these problems by educating yourself on them and how to solve them without creating further social and economic inequity in America and the broader world. Don’t have time to do that? Then shut the fuck up.
@ insert clever name here – You are of course correct. As everyone knows, visiting Lichtenstein gives you carte blanch to write whatever you like on the internet. Did your satnav know where it was or did you “discover” it while on your bear grylls type escapade through darkest Europe. Well done sir. I hope your brain freeze lifts soon so you can wow us with some of the other exotic locations that you have had the privilege of visiting. Here is a tip, if you have been to the UK, cheat and say that you have been to England, Scotland, Wales and NI. Boom. 4 countries for the price of one. No thanks necessary.
