Democrat leadership baffled as massive number of voters leave the party.

He isn't her. And that is the point isn't it? When you start to let that sink in you can start to get over it. You want to blame Trump for the mess we are in. It's time you acknowledge how much Obama and Clinton and the rest of the Democrats are to blame for the Trump presidency.

I say do away with all income taxes completely and replace it with import duties and sales taxes.

Just go to their user page like https://patrick.net/users/Ironman and click "ban" under their name.

This is discriminatory to Ironman. I like him and i like his contributions.
Controversy is what makes this site fun and interesting.

He's been saying this for the past 2 years.
Why the blaring headlines now?

Oakland has been a no-go zone for me for years.

Just about every black area is a no-go zone.

Florida ground zero for Medicare and Medicaid fraud

This has been widely reported for years: "Medicare fraud - estimated now to total about $60 billion a year - has become one of, if not the most profitable, crimes in America." The combination of the fee-for-service model and infinite subsidies has produced huge amounts of waste, fraud, and abuse, and lethal consequences.

Imagine if schoolteachers had to incur close to $1 million in startup costs, plus overhead of $100k/year, but they could make it all back and more by assigning more kids to detention and referring them for ADHD drugs on a fee for service basis. Almost inevitably, you'd see some entrepreneurial teachers putting as many kids as possible in detention and on drugs, while idealistic teachers who try to do right would struggle to make ends meet, might even be driven out of the high cost areas. Similar events have actually happened involving judges in Pennsylvania sentencing kids to juvenile detention in exchange for kickbacks, and Florida is notorious for drugging kids in juvenile detention. In SF and other high cost areas, we see honest doctors driven out, while entrepreneurial doctors cash in.

Do they sell us their cars and TV's for free? Why should we give them state of the art defense for free?

Trump is right. It is appropriate that South Korea pay for its own defense.

Lol, how?

Pick a measurement of economic health. Any of them. All of them. Then plot them from 2009 onward.

How about national debt? Or days at war? Or bombs dropped? Or unfunded liabilities? Or number of Americans on food stamps? Or level of racial unrest?

And if she wins, it's because people are racist!

This is an excellent dilemma for France.

Got it. My mistake. I forgot it was a thunderdome thread.

You know, PatNet would be tens times as popular if piggy were banned altogether. Just think of all the people who read his shit and say "fuck this, I'm out of here".
