Quote# 80423

It's a bad bill. And then when you find out that the prior Congress not only passed that 2,800 page bill with all kinds of things in it, including a new president's commissioned officer corps and non-commissioned officer corps. Do we really need that? I wondered when I read that in the bill. But then when you find out we're being sent to Libya to use our treasure and American lives there, maybe there's intention to so deplete the military that we're going to need that presidential reserve officer commissioned corps and non-commissioned corps that the president can call up on a moment's notice involuntarily, according to the Obamacare bill.

And Gohmert Pyle strikes again.

Actually, like what the article states, Obama is merely creating a ready reserve corps of medical professionals to be used at a time of a national emergency such as natural disasters or events like 9/11. This was a recomendation made during the Bush admistration after 9/11.

Oh, nevermind, you seem to entertain 9/11 'truther' ideas. I can see the slippery slope from which you came from.

I find it quite funny how lame these arguments are.

You forgot to explain how DADT would have saved the US from that. Go back to work and don't come back before you found a way to plug it in!

And that's not mandatory, but a line on the World Government, Jew-media or Freemasons would earn you bonus points.

....according to the Obamacare bill.

Cracked me up.

Hmmm; I think your vitriol may be just a tad misdirected...

As General MacArthur said, " For The Corps. And The Corps. And The Corps." And, shockingly, he was a Republican.

What were we discussing, by the way?

Wharrgarbl at its finest.

Where do you people get this shit, seriously?

4/4/2011 12:57:15 AM


Wait, there were "all kinds of things" in a bill? No kidding? I thought there were usually a bunch of blank papers that people voted on!

Doubting Thomas

For some reason, I'm even more skeptical that conspiracy theorists really read all 2800 pages of the bill than I am that members of Congress did.

In conspiracy theory talk, "I read the bill" = "I read something on a conspiracy theory website" or alternatively, "I heard another conspiracy theorist say this."

Ugh. I am so glad I no longer live in this guy's congressional district. Why do the idiots of east Texas keep electing him?

Think or GTFO

Is there anything that Obamacare can't do?

4/4/2011 3:55:54 PM


So now Obamacare is sending troops to Libya? I don't follow this at all.

4/4/2011 11:13:16 PM


That thing is so big that it *has* to contain anything I can possibly make up. *throws huge stack of paper onto table* See? Aliens will use human bodies to incubate their young, and socialized healthcare is actually a ploy to inject alien eggs into unsuspecting humans!

As the great Homer so perfectly put it (I think it was in the Iliad, right after the bit about the "rosey-fingered dawn" and the "wine-dark sea," but before Cyclops and Rogue):

“Here's to Obamacare: the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.”

4/5/2011 4:20:03 PM

Wait, you're those who think that 9/11 was an "inside job"

"Obamacare" is the new New World Order.

So Obamacare is all about sending troops and spending money on Libya, depleting our resources, so he can draft health care practitioners to... do what exactly?

4/13/2011 6:14:39 AM


Shit happens. Um...there was a shaking...what was that...over east. No not a war. That was an earthquake in Japan that did a fair job of flattening the country, a place we are allied 'n friendly with.

I think it's shit like this that Obama has in mind, or if something like this happens in the ol' US of A. Or the Midwest that got the stuffing torn out of it by tornadoes? Lots of possibilities.
