"the goal of the authors of obamacare was to make private healthcare so expensive the dumb masses will demand the govt "fix" it with a single payer system"


healthcare was already too expensive for a lot of the "dumb masses" pre-Obamacare

Obama and his administration have no interest in a single payer system

they're only interested in reelection, hence them not making single payer central to the national discussion on healthcare and them failing to include a public option in the actual Obamacare plan (even though a majority of American citizens wanted it)

there's a lot to criticize Obama about - refusal to prosecute Wall Street criminals, escalating drone attacks that primarily kill Muslim civilians, doing nothing to curtail the expanding surveillance state, signing and working rigorously to uphold NDAA (indefinite detention, most egregious attack on the bill of rights since Alien and Sedition Acts/Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus/internment of Japanese Americans), blind support of Israel and fanning the flames for a potential war with Iran, extending the Bush tax cuts, overseeing a criminal justice system that imprisons more citizens than any other country in the world - but the complaint that he's a "socialist" doesn't quite hold water

Obamacare being upheld by the supreme court makes actual healthcare reform much more difficult. Its much less likely now that we get real national healthcare.

so if that was the plan, it was very dumb

^and you know this, man

heroin use is not in decline and the country that has 90% of the world's heroin supply, Afghanistan, has been under the control of the US military for the last decade; with such a fishy situation you'd figure more people would be complaining about the stink

Why is that directed at me?


Oh I see:

Claim:
He went way faster than 800 MPH and broke the speed of sound.


Yeh, I will say this is up for debate. When I was watching the instruments were wrong.
It said they were 148,000 ft up when they were really 100,000 ft up
It said he was traveling at 729 mph max on the live feed.


I don't understand why they'd display or use inaccurate tools to display to the public and if they were inaccurate, how do we know THEIR instruments weren't inaccurate as well?



Quote :
"

Does anyone know for sure if he broke the sound barrier before or after being in the spin. I've read it described both ways. During the jump the mission control voice had him at 729mph and at that point he entered the spin. If his top speed was 833.9, I would assume he achieved that after he recovered from the spin. I have read though that he broke the sound barrier and when he did that he went into the spin?
Anyone know for sure?

I'm curious too, Felix said that he had to fight the spin and then he felt himself break past the sound barrier. Yet the speed reading showed his estimated speed passing well above 690mph (729mph) before he started spinning and losing speed. They cut the speed reading after that so we can't tell if he started accelerating shortly after he recovered from the spin. My guess is that he hit the 833mph before the spin whilst the air was less dense, the denser air at the lower altitude when he recovered from the spin probably meant for sure that he wasn't accelerating afterwards.

The patent goes on to say that the sensors would also be able to determine if a viewer is exercising, eating, laughing, singing, or playing a musical instrument, and target ads to viewers based on their mood. It also could use sensors to determine what type of pets or inanimate objects are in the room. The system can also “dynamically adjust parental control features” if it detects that young children are present in the room.

Let me try to help you out: a conspiracy has two parts, the plan and the purpose. You have posted the plan (well not really, but I guess it could be a plan) but not the purpose.

So in your example, this technology is the "secret plan" (I think) but to do what? Advertise things to people? That's not particularly unlawful or harmful, so what is the nefarious purpose? Microsoft is also doing the same thing with their next version of Kinect, are they in on it? If so, what are they in on?

i believe that Magic Johnson never had AIDS

he was used to ease the negative stigma of those afflicted with HIV and AIDS and to make AIDS victims more willing to buy into the "treatments" and programs they had.

And keep them on the drugs the lifestyle that got them there in the first place, especially the black community

I guess you could say I'm somewhat of a birther, though I don't care where Obama was born. I really don't see it ever being proven outside of hearsay one way or the other. I maintain though that his actual birthplace is probably still unknown, despite the release of that faux birth certificate.

I just think the plausibility of a birthplace cover-up by a political party in order to ensure the election of an otherwise highly popular (and electable) candidate is clear - especially in this day. Did it happen? I can't say. May it have? Absolutely.


But that's cool, Ultimate Warrior was from Parts Unknown too, and he was awesome.

The possibility that it may have happened, despite statements from Hawaii and the birth certificate, is your justification for believing it? So you believe it for every other president too?

Yao Ming was indeed the product of a Chinese selective breeding campaign of a sort. Indeed, you could argue that most slave genealogies were influenced by external selective breeding to some extent.

No, because it's never been in question with any other president.


The birth certificate is a piece of paper. Hell, I can get you a birth certificate. I can get you a birth certificate by 3 o'clock. With polish. There are ways, dude. You don't wanna know. There are ways.

Also... The State of Hawaii has a vested interest in backing it up - overwhelmingly democrat as well as his status as the first President born there.



I'm not saying I'm 100% on it. I'm saying that it's a conspiracy that I find plausible. It's the best I got for the topic at hand.

Totally believe it. I mean, he's not dead yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if people who make enemies with the US government suspiciously go missing. Or does this even count, because this has already happened and it's public knowledge.

I also believe this:

I mean, I tell people, the government gets a feed of your telephone calls, and I feel like I should be wearing a tin hat. Again, this doesn't even count for the thread. Damn reality.

Here's the more crazy thing I believe:

Your smartphone can probably listen to your conversations as it's on standby. It could be doing it right now. It has all the capabilities for it. It's not the end of the world, it's just that you haven't had a private conversation for the better part of the last decade.

now you have privacy while you're alone, but not when other people with iPhones are around you.

But now the real thing to worry about is our government reading our brain waves. Just think about it. These phones are picking up signals from towers a mile away. With such capabilities, it should be obvious to read your thoughts through brainwaves emitted just inches away.

Oh shit, I just realized I'm wearing headphones. We'll, I'm SOL for having thoughts the government hasn't read. That means they know all about the plan I thought up in the last hour. Man. What a bummer.

They'll probably be here any minute now...

I should prepare.
