"Believe it or not, there is an upside to 0bamacare"
I sure do believe it. It's great that the poor are going to be able to get medical care.
"If the conservatives capture the presidency, and both houses of Congress"
That's a bit of a segue, and a pretty big if.
"then we can force the liberals/socialists/democRATs to buy a Bible, a gun and membership in the NRA."
Oh, you were being facetious, and no, I'm pretty sure "we" can't do that.
"Same principle as 0bamacare."

I own both a Bible and a shotgun, and because I am not a hammerhead like you, I refuse to use either as a weapon of offense.

In a way he's right - the individual mandate and the supreme court's ruling does set a potentially risky precedent: we will "tax" you for not having something. Now, if we had a single payer system on the other hand...
7/1/2012 4:48:12 AM
I can see why American conservatives consider government an untrustworthy entity.
7/1/2012 4:53:25 AM
So you want to force gun owners to buy another gun, and bible owners to buy another bible?
And you think this is the good part about a badly thought out healthcare system that caters to private insurance companys...
You American have realy dropped the ball on this one.
Every country with paved streets in their secondary citys has public healthcare, paid for out of public revenues.
They (we) dont levy a special tax, We cover it out of pre-existing tax revenue.
Scrap any two of your aircraft carriers, and put the savings into healthcare.
14.5mm/L77 Tapered bore you dumb fuck

What is 5.56mm? The diameter of your questionable 'manhood'?
7/1/2012 5:11:51 AM
You can't make me keep a bible but I wouldn't mind the gun. FUCK the NRA though.

There is an upside to Fundiecare and being forced to buy a gun. You can use it to keep fuckheads like Kehoe here at bay.
7/1/2012 6:18:32 AM
I'm pretty sure quite a few democrats own both guns and bibles.
I'm not an American and so do not own a gun, but even as an atheist I own 5 bibles. They can't even agree on the first sentence.
7/1/2012 6:24:21 AM
Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. How is health insurance like a gun and a bible?
7/1/2012 6:29:44 AM
As a liberal, I already have all three.
A Bible, to throw your own beliefs back in your face when you fail to live up to them.
A couple of guns, mainly for target shooting and a little hunting, but one intended for home defense, which I hope I'll never have to use.
And a membership in the NRA.
No bullshit theocratic law needed.
Edit: Looking at this guy's name, I can't help but wonder if he's trying to refer to the Kehoe brothers. Those idiots who got into a gun fight with the cops at Point. Blank. Range. (/Ron White) and no one hit anything.
A so-called patriot taking the name of a pair of attempted cop killers and known criminals. Somehow I'm not surprised.

7.62x39...I have a bigger bullet, by caveman logic I win.
On the another note: Forcing people to buy a bible would violate the establishment clause, and forcing a membership into the NRA would violate the freedom of association...Oddly enough I don't know how you could constitutionally challenge forcing everyone to buy a gun.
7/1/2012 7:05:38 AM
No, you can't. That goes against the Constitution.

"Believe it or not, there is an upside to 0bamacare. If the conservatives capture the presidency, and both houses of Congress, then we can force the liberals/socialists/democRATs to buy a Bible, a gun and membership in the NRA. Same principle as 0bamacare. "
First of all, that's a might big "if." Second of all, that isn't anything like what's being proposed.
7/1/2012 7:24:54 AM
I have an AKM which uses 7.62mm ammo so my bullets are bigger than your bullets nyah, nyah!
7/1/2012 7:28:25 AM
checkmateforce the liberals/socialists/democRATs to ... membership in the NRA.
Fine, great, bring it on. Soon enough the Democrats would have the majority in the NRA and at the next national meeting they'd elect Michael Moore as president.
That would be fun.

Exactly why they'd want to I am unclear, but this seems to be a factually sound analysis.
7/1/2012 8:03:42 AM
Uh, no, it's nothing like that. Also, any requirement to buy a bible would be ruled unconstitutional.
Funny how they always support that, but they'd shit bricks at the suggestion of being required to buy a Koran.
7/1/2012 8:23:11 AM
Actually, no it's not. Membership in the NRA and a bible don't make health care more affordable. I'd expect this kind of stupidity from "Free" Republic though.
7/1/2012 8:27:52 AM
Well, this is just stupid. More stupid than fundie.
7/1/2012 9:34:00 AM
Oooh, Iran. I have been waiting for the GOP to decide if they want the country to become Somalia or Iran. They have now chosen. Cool.
7/1/2012 9:34:36 AM
Big deal, Key-hole....A Bible's just a book of scriptures & Jesus was cool (many Libs do own Bibles, pray, have a strong faith & got to church regularly). Guns know no affiliation (many Libs own guns) & membership to the NRA wouldn't faze me either way. Nice try, but.....
7/1/2012 10:37:33 AM
I don't think that your logic exactly pans out, there.

"I'm all for freedom, except for those liberal/commie/feminist/atheist/muslim/democrat/socialist guys! Fuck those guys!"
