“I want to say that, "If you don't like Hobby Lobby, you don't have to shop there", but Obamacare proves that in America, you can be forced to pay for something you don't need, want, or like.”

“Um, who doesn't need healthcare? Pretty sure if you have a body you do. Unless after a car accident or injury you are going to refuse going to the hospital? Yeah, that's what I thought.”

JavaSavant on Oct 3, 2013 at 12:00:18

“Actually, everyone needs, wants, and likes healthcare. You just don't like poor people to have it, too.”

Political Poetaster on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:51:39

“Speak for yourself. I need affordable health care after years of being jerked around by insurance companies. And I'd rather we all have it, so we don't end up subsidizing continued emergency room visits by those who are uninsured. But then, you've heard this argument before. It continues to be ignored by your side, and will continue to be ignored, so yes, I agree with Oneineveryfamily: you should probably go back to sleep.”

GrandmaG on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:49:45

“Well hell, I've been forced to pay for car insurance for a long time now. Not to mention other people's healthcare because they wouldn't/couldn't pay for it themselves. Now they can and will. Yay!”

“I never had children, so I don't need schools. I don't want to pay for schools. I don't like schools. Why do I have to pay taxes to support them? And don't get me started on the wars I've paid for that I opposed. Paying taxes is not a la carte.”

“Every one needs health insurance as everyone is a slip fall or germ away from illness and injury. Get a clue.”

Glorax on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:48:04

“Let me guess, you already get health insurance through your job?”

“Like car insurance? Don't see you ragging about that...”

P Ross on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:43:15

“So does licensing a car, buying home owner insurance, paying in to Social Security and Medicare or paying taxes. And your point is?”

NellWebbish on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:41:50

“BOOOHOOHOOO ... all those uninsured leeches sucking off the rest of us don't like being required to pay for their own stupidity!

Frankly, I don't care if you want to be uninsured. As long as you are willing to wear a medic-alert bracelet that says 'I choose FREEDOM over insurance' so we know to leave you bleeding in the street or allow you to have your heart attack in peace instead of transporting you to the nearest Emergency room.

And by the way, opting out is permanent. You don't get to refuse to pay into the system when you are young and healthy and then come whining about needing healthcare after you turn 50 ... unless of course you buy your way back in by coughing up the past premiums you opted out of.”

JessWonderin on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:39:14

“bet you depend on insurance and could care less about anyone else.”

“What on God's green earth are you babbling about?”

OneInEveryFamily on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:34:04

“You do need health insurance unless you would refuse all treatment. You also need police departments and pay for them even if you keep an arsenal of weapons at home.

You should go back to sleep”

“Getting quite the chuckle at the 90% of people commenting who claim people only download music to check it out and then buy it if they like it, or only download music they already own (which doesn't make sense unless it's vinyl, and really, how many people buy vinyl these days?). Physical sales of music are about 1/3 what they were 15 years ago, and paid digital downloads don't even come close to bridging the gap. Get real. People like file sharing because they get something of value for free. Which in turn devalues music as an art form, turns it into a commodity - like product, and explains why the vast majority of music being made today, in all genres, is complete and utter garbage.”

Smedley Butler on Sep 25, 2013 at 02:55:40

“Giving away music for free " in turn devalues music as an art form, turns it into a commodity"

Selling music on the other hand makes it not be a commodity and the sales are what make it an art form....Of Course.”

“I do not recall saying the UK violent crime rate was 5 times higher than the US. I DID say it was sky-high, and if you bothered to read your own article (by the way, that was a pretty sketchy source to begin with) the author admits the violent crime rate in the UK is nearly double that of the US. It's not a myth or an urban legend, it's a stone cold fact.”

“What, exactly, does the NRA have to do with this? You think it's the NRA that prevents the passage of gun laws? No... it's the 70% of the American public being against gun control that prevents the passage of gun laws. Feinstein, Biden and Co. can spin their bogus statistics all they want, fact of the matter is the vast majority of the people believe in the 2nd Amendment. Aside from that... DC has the strictest gun laws in the country, and this occurred in a gun-free zone. How, exactly, is gun control or new laws going to fix this? IT"S A CULTURAL PROBLEM... Until we are able to look at that uncomfortable fact these things will continue to happen. Period.”
