“Naw, Dxer1968 – I’m not dead.”
Sorry to have to hear that.January 20, 2016 at 11:07 pm #17425
I’m not sure he’s ever been right, but Herbinator has style.
Ahem, ham fisted.
Hey Herb! 🙂January 21, 2016 at 1:10 am #17430Alfredo_TParticipant
There was ONE thing that Herb was right about; he was a big supporter of local radio in McMinnville on KLYC.January 21, 2016 at 5:22 am #17431BrianlParticipant
Nah Gouge, Herb isn’t bad.
Misguided, but not bad.
I would buy him that Stella anytime. (And I’m dead serious, Herb)January 21, 2016 at 10:29 am #17434HerbSpectator
Polls, schmolls. That’s rich, Andy Brown. And I don’t mean Marc Rich. You’re seriously retreating to polls?
Americans remain unhappy with Barrycare, among other things and don’t want anyone resembling his third term.
You also conveniently left out Hillary’s indictment investigation. What then?
And speaking of polls, it looks like ol’ Hillary has her hands full, with Mr. Sanders.
A couple of radical old white Democrats are supposed to actually represent our country? Is this truly the best your socialist left can do? I think you guys better get your script straight. November will arrive very soon.January 21, 2016 at 12:36 pm #17436Andy BrownParticipant
“Americans remain unhappy with Barrycare”
1. Rand reports that in summer of 2013, there were 42 million uninsured Americans. By February of 2015, that number had fallen to 25.8 million. That is, nearly 17 million more Americans have health care than before Obamacare.
2. With regard to percentages, the country’s uninsured rate was 17.1% in 2013, and it declined dramatically to 11.9% during the first quarter of 2015.
3. People without health care are in a very uncertain situation– they could have a medical emergency any time, and they have nothing to pay the hospital with. They also don’t get preventive care because they don’t pay to go see a doctor if they don’t have to. Obamacare will save an estimated 24,000 lives a year.
4. The International Business Times observed on the implications of the law for racial equality that:
“All racial and ethnic groups showed gains in coverage, but the biggest improvement came among minority groups. The uninsured rate for Hispanics dropped by more than 12 percent; African-American uninsured rates fell more than 9 percent and white uninsured rates fell more than 5 percent.”
5. Women have been especially helped by Obamacare. They now pay the same premiums as men, which did not used to be the case. Even by early January, there had been a 5.5% decline in the number of uninsured women since 2013:
“Up until last year, insurance companies could — and often did — charge women different premiums than men for the same coverage. As of January 1, 2014, the ACA prohibits this gender discrimination. In part because of improved options and affordability, today’s report outlines a significant 5.5 percentage point decline in the uninsured rate among women between the ages of 18 and 64 since 2013.”
6. Many more children how have health care. It had earlier been found that:
“New research documents the long-term benefits of Medicaid coverage in childhood. The National Bureau of Economic Research compared children eligible for Medicaid during childhood to their non-eligible peers and found that the Medicaid-eligible children were more likely to attend college, make greater contributions as adult taxpayers, and live longer than those without coverage.”
Obamacare, some of which is covered by medicaid expansion in sane states, should have the same effect, enriching these lives and enriching us all.
“among other things and don’t want anyone resembling his third term.”
What “other things” Herb? Have you become so disoriented that you can only speak in vague, untrue generalities?
Also, the only group that doesn’t want someone resembling another term of the current president are the folks that didn’t vote for him in ’12, and that is a minority of voters. Remember how that election totaled up? Five million more votes for him then for the loser, what was his name again?
“You also conveniently left out Hillary’s indictment investigation. What then?”
Try reading less Breitbart and surfing around to a mix of sources, Herbie. Only in the minds of the brain dead idiots on the right wing do these fantasies exist. Oh, yeah, the Republican Congress of idiots that keep passing bills that are going nowhere. You know, it’s quite possible that not only will the next President be a progressive liberal Democrat but the Senate will once again change hands. More people are dissatisfied with the Republican led Congress then ever before. Even your buddies at Rassmussen agree with that assessment. ( http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/mood_of_america/congressional_performance ).
“And speaking of polls, it looks like ol’ Hillary has her hands full, with Mr. Sanders.”
Leave it to Ol’ Hypocrite Herb to admonish polls in the first part of his post and then cite them later. Clearly, you haven’t changed any. To be succinct, I reported on the average of all polls and if you refer to that, Clinton is still way ahead nationally. All the coverage is on Iowa and New Hampshire but it’s been sixteen years since Iowa got it right. Let me tell you a secret: The GOP is afraid of Crud as a nominee. They know for one, he is not an American by birth as his mother did not have dual citizenship as it didn’t exist at the time. His outrageous statements about foreign policy have many GOP power brokers shaking in their boots. Can Trump win because of this fear? Possibly, but Trump still needs to win the nomination. After Iowa and N.H., the complexion of the process changes. It always has. If I were you, I’d keep a low profile until you actually have a nominee, none of whom can overcome the big blue wall.
“A couple of radical old white Democrats are supposed to actually represent our country? Is this truly the best your socialist left can do? I think you guys better get your script straight.”
Wow, Herb, written like a true chump that hasn’t read a newspaper, watched the news on T.V. or interacted with a single soul in 8 years. Here’s a brief refresher of what has happened since your boy, Dubya, started two wars and drove the economy into a ditch:
“November will arrive very soon.”
Right you are, Herbsma, you do indeed seem to like crow. How would you like it fixed this year? Over easy?January 21, 2016 at 1:19 pm #17438skepticalParticipant

Prove positive this leftist echo chamber never changes, nor can its members handle any contrary view like an adult.

Wow, Herb, that is the most erroneous critique of the ACA that I have ever seen. And it’s just one opinion. The majority of Americans support the ACA, period.
Nice try, but please continue to dispense your lies. After all, the evil party of right wingers are only good at one thing . . . lying.January 22, 2016 at 8:49 pm #17465
Wow. This thread sure went down the shitter fast didn’t it?January 22, 2016 at 8:58 pm #17468
It’s Herb! That is where it goes.
Where else?January 22, 2016 at 9:01 pm #17469
Hey, the ACA is a good thing in my family. It has already helped avoid at least one scenario that Mrs and I had to take in the sack. Hard.
From here, we make it better. No joke.
Bernie wants to open up Medicare, at a minimum, part E for everyone, to kick off the move to a universal plan.
Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.January 29, 2016 at 7:30 pm #17685
So whose sockpuppet was Dxer1969? I see his handle has been demoted to “spectator” (deactivated) and his last post was two Tuesdays ago.
When did the shitstorm happen that I missed out on?January 30, 2016 at 12:42 am #17690
I have no idea. Beats me.
