Re: What is the US preparing for on October 1st?
I don't know why we think that good old American folk can just talk about what they want and voila' their voice is heard.

We got what we voted for - unreasonable men and women who went to Washington to play politics and although the House of Representatives is the catalyst - we are to blame - we the Americans that voted for these yahoos to represent us.

In my opinion I think that some Americans believe that in the 11th hour their party members will save the day and raise the debt ceiling.

I believe that is not going to happen and I predict that for the first time in American history we will default on our loans.... America will become the deadbeat - and all because we care more for the politician to play politics than do right by country when we voted for the congress.

So just let us quit bitchin 'n mounin', suck it up and see how we can survive - because no one in Washington is interested in saving the day..... and no one cares what we say in our tweets, facepages or blogs...except the news media for content fillers and to sell their advertisements . it was only in the election.... we spoke when we marked the ballot - and look where we are now.

Adalstef: What do you disagree about?

There was a shutdown in ´95 and ´96, right?
There was no chaos then, right?

so why would this shutdown be any different?


good question..... nothing left to say because you aren't living it, here are you.

Dragos1: Hey! You are being a bit pointed here mister. I am referring to the term that is being used by not only people here but in the news and people all over the world. And in ten years from now are you saying that "Obamacare" will not be the label that it is referred to? I suppose you can be a nit picking but It is simply to put me down? What about the rest of what I said? Why be so negative? I simply said I thought that adults should work together. I did not once say that "Obabmacare" was the "Official" name. But it is the "Unofficial" name that most people use and most likely will continue on using. SO if you wish to put me down as though I am some ignorant American I think that you have sunken in desperation to attack someone that is not even arguing either side of this dilemma, Shallow pot shots are not needed. You say that the Gullibility of Americans is mind boggling? I say the desire to be miserable is unquestionable in your statement.


Then maybe you need to re-read your post, as you made specific comments about the name being that of a president, it was not a cheap shot but an observation founded on what you had written.

The fact remains that most republicans that are pulling America down are doing so because they despise Obama, not because of his politics but because they lost the election, they obviously care nothing about their country and are more interested in creating problems that may topple him, than actually working towards a real JOINT solution for America, and worse, the whole world is watching this dreadful scene with horror, America is supposed to be the world's greatest superpower, not group of kindergarten children being selfish and naughty.

You are the one that should reread what i posted, and if you have a question than ask, do not assume to know what I think. You may not like the way I write and I may not be so academic as you seem to expect me to use certain terms in the way you might approach something. Maybe you are more of a product of your own environment than you would think. If two people can not even have a transaction of words with the first insulting the other what makes you believe that larger groups of separate goals and ideals will do any better. Now that is possibly a bit cynical but so is your critical nature. I doubt that anything I say will be to your liking, but then I am not here to please you, I also am not here to micromanage your posts.

Re: What is the US preparing for on October 1st?
Dragos1: well, I suppose I should not joke around without reading what the story is about. I have to say it is not so surprising, People (groups) not getting along. Just politicians throwing their weight around and all the while common folk have not a lot to do but make sure their families are reasonably protected against those that might take advantage of the situation. I was thinking about the term "Obamacare" even if you like it or not.....or neither...it seems like a stupid name for it, especially if the plan is truly supposed to be a long term Health reform. Giving it the name of one president is at the very least narcissistic and what about after the next president comes along? The name should have been something clever and not so connected to one person. Even a good sales person should see that. Two groups of adults that can't play together fairly. It is pathetic indeed.


For Rizlared, You began your ridicule because I used the term "Obamacare", and if you reread what I wrote there it is exactly that, yet you had to jab because I did not use the "Official Name" And as for the two parties not getting along you can see where I highlighted that I also am not impressed. I am not endorsing any of this action that is going on by either party. Not here and not in the past post.
rizlared: Are you serious? You actually think the "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" is officially named "Obamacare"?

The Gullibility of some Americans is just mind boggling at times


I did not state that Obamacare was the Official name.

I'm certainly no Republican, nor a Democrat for that matter.

But concerning who's "pulling America down", that's been a bi-partisan effort all along.

The real fallacy is to imagine that politicians of either party are actually trying to make things better.

In truth they are looting the economy, stealing the wealth of the nation for their own benefit. And big costly projects such as wars, Obama-care, bailouts, stimulus, etc. are just the means toward that end.

Wealth disappears from the middle class and trickles up to the rich industrialists who make the weapons, or the fat cat bankers and politicians who run the boondoggle programs.

Re: What is the US preparing for on October 1st?
Now that we are at October 17th......I am going to give my two cents to this to why this happened.

The Obamacare roll out.

The Administration was totally unsure how the American people were going to take the roll out of Obamacare. Would they go into the streets and riot? Would they follow the Tea party leaders in breaking down the governments? These were the unfounded fears of the present Obama administration.

All BS and fabricated for media and world speculation.

No riots occurred. Senator Crus shut down the government all by himself.

With Obamacare failing miserably on its own....conservatives and Tea Party people really did not not need to do much of anything. The roll out has been for 2 weeks. The enrollment numbers are so few...that the Administration will not tell us how many did enroll. But the best guess estimate....is a platry 7m did. In President Obama's home state of Illinois....7,000 enrolled in the first week. You can get more to a High School football game on Friday night!

Were are those 43m Americans without healthcare? What about all those condition to not getting health care? They should be jumping on this program! But.....with the Government's website shutting down down on a very regular basis....they cannot get enrolled. Now here is the secret.....the prices of the Obamacare health insurance are about 2 times the price of commercial health insurance prior to the ACA being enacted.

A Forbes article is saying that every time a person comes to the prices section of the site.....it fails. It crashes the entire site, hence the problems getting enrolled.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2013/10/14/obamacares-website-is-crashing-because-it-doesnt-want-you-to-know-health-plans-true-costs/

It is only beginning. Already my mother received a letter from her Doctor.....as of March of next year....he will not accept any form of Medicaide payment. It is just complex to process theu the government
bureaucracy made by Obama care. Other Doctors are dropping out of practice completely....they simply don't want the headache of dealing with both the Federal government and State government to get paid.

Conservatives told the country and the world that this was going to happen.....back in 2009 during the health care debates. I posted it many times here in Connectingsingles......but ah no.....America has to be like Europe. Well it ain't kids. We have 312m people under one flag here.

Today with Obamacare rollout.....we see the worst in Big government. meddling into a doctor offices to make sure of treatments. Failing to keep a candidate promises made during a election. And worst of all....making a new way to scam the system. Political payment offs
Preisdent Obama supporters....who are now 'navigators' into the complicated health care system. Paid by Federal grants of course!

Default of the dollar.
The process has already begun.

Watch for Obama to assume special emergency powers to bypass congress.

Re: What is the US preparing for on October 1st?
Adalstef: Why is FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Department of Homeland Security) ordering emergency food and water supplies by the palletts to be delivered before Oct 1st?

Why are 386.000 UN troops ordered to learn english and use of US weapons systems, to be ready by Okt 1st?

Why are US troops granted no leave between Sept 28th through Nov 5th?

All DHS agents (Department of Homeland Security) must qualify with side arm, shotgun and AR 15 assault rifle, by Sept 28th

National Guard units must complete riot control course, to be copleted by Sept 30th

... and so on

Civil war by the looks . Attacking media with tear gas and stun grenades shows a distinct lack of quality in the police , and arrests of the media who are covering what they , the police are doing . Heading for radicalisation by the looks . Instead of dealing with a police murder properly the police have protected the murderer . Another death now may lead to riots further afield . It won't matter two farks why the second person was shot as the lines are drawn .
