by 'Eurotrash' posters defending healthcare/Socialism/the NHS and attacking claimed 'Christian hypocrisy' Apparently it's two British Communists called Jack and Pauline Urban who are organising it all.

I applaud Jack and Pauline Urban for calling this what it is: Christian hypocrisy. The same people protecting the rights of the "soon-to-be-born" are not extending the same rights to those who are already living with deadly illnesses who desperately need medical coverage. America finally did something good for its citizens, and those citizens are revolting and being an embarrassment worldwide. And, I agree with Rogue as to the Faux News. I remember when Michael Moore would only agree to do an interview with Bill O'Reilly if it were live, as the Fox shows tends to edit things to look a certain way.

You might not believe this, but I support their right to express their opinions. That is, I support their free speech rights if they allow opposing views on their own web pages. On the other hand, if they are not US citizens, they have a right to express their opinions, but they carry no weight since they are not entitled to determine anything about US policies. They should butt out of trying to sway Americans in any vote that applies only to Americans. "America finally did something good for its citizens, and those citizens are revolting and being an embarrassment worldwide." Lady, America IS its citizens. We the people, remember? And the people have every right to protest when the government decides to go against the will of the people, because the people are the power. What would be truly embarrassing would be if the citizens just kept quiet and obedient and let government take over every aspect of their lives. More importantly, it would be embarrassing to let the opinions of citizens of other nations be our most important determining factor in our nation's policies. We are not the world, we are America.

Ah yet again you display your ignorance for us all to see. Tell me Ladybug, who do you think runs those charities that take in orphaned and abandoned children? Do you think the women who work there dress as nuns because they think it's stylish? Many of the best charities who cater to the most desparate people are run by Christian churches. That's not even getting into how many hospitals, clinics, and soup kitchens are run by churches as well. I know this first hand as I've done fundraisers for an orphanage that was run by my church in Orlando, and volunteered in soup kitchens run by my church. Of course you're just too cool for church so you'd never lower yourself to go to one or actually witness any of the work they do for people in their community. I'd love to see you drop by my old church on a Sunday when the bloodmobile drops by and people are lined up donating blood that will save the lives of people they don't know and have never met. These people don't need the government to steal their money, skim off the top, and divvy up the rest. Good Christians give to charity themselves and by far donate more time, money, and blood than non-religious people. I know you have difficulty reading, but it would really benefit you to take a look at this and see the facts. Conservatives give their own money to charity, liberals prefer to give other people's money to charity and take credit for it as if it were their own. After all, that's what you're doing when you claim only people who supported this bill care about people and the rest want people to die. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/26/AR2008032602916.html

Rollo - the people who supported the bill are also America, and they had their voices heard. So, in essence, the government did listen to the people. Taskr - There are many orphanages in this country, and many are not affiliated with any religion. That is highly offensive that you would suggest that Christians donate more time, money, and blood than any athiests or agnostics or any one of any other religion. That is just not true. I don't disagree that you do spend money and time, but, its not any more than anyone else who cares to be charitable. We, in fact, go out of our way to spend time, money, tears, sweat, etc, to fight off all the oppressive inhumane campaigns the fanatical religious right initiates. If we are going to talk about difficulty with reading, somehow you missed my entire first two sentences, which apply to this case, the healthcare bill: "I applaud Jack and Pauline Urban for calling this what it is: Christian hypocrisy. The same people protecting the rights of the "soon-to-be-born" are not extending the same rights to those who are already living with deadly illnesses who desperately need medical coverage."

That's funny! Sorry, I have to laugh because Fox should have seen this coming. Also, I hate Fox News. They are so full of it. Time and again they talk trash about the Democratic Party, but they cannot take it when people speak out against them.

I don't know where you get your information, kennyrose, but I have seen Fox News, it is ALWAYS to the FAR RIGHT. They are so Conservative that it's classifies them as biased news channel. They are never fair when talking about politics and the Democrats. Hillary Clinton does own Fox News, again, I don't know where you get your information because that is false. Heck, Sarah Palin is Fox News Channel big contributor. Look, I have proof: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/8453223.stm http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/sarah-palin-debuts-fox-news-contributor/story?id=9545589 http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2010/01/sarah-palin-fox-news-channel.html Sarah Palin, as we all know, ran for VP with John McCain for the Republican Party in the 2008 Election Year. Now what does that say about Fox News? It's a Republican News Channel!

Okay well polls don't really mean much they can be made to say anything! Also you said all and that right there is a lie because all would mean that you have seen every poll in the USA and I know that that is not the case. Okay so lets see here FOX News I haven't watched it for a while. It has shows that are better than others at being "fair" O'Reilly Factor is Right because he is right and a lot of there show do seem to have a right wing bias to them. But that is true for all news networks there is a slight lean one way or the other so you have to watch more than just one to get the right information and a more accurate picture of what really happened.

This is not surprising. When Sarah Palin's Facebook page got set up, there were lots of people becoming fans of the page just so they could post inflammatory remarks. I think what's most discouraging is that the comments tend to run to name-calling. I understand that a left-wing website is directing people to Fox News polls on healthcare to try to skew the numbers. While anyone is entitled to vote in a poll, an organized effort to direct people to it is intentionally trying to make it look like the bill is more popular than it is, since there's no organized effort on the other side. We all know the truth, all the polls from every source have told us for a year now that this bill is not supported by the majority of Americans. Maybe they're trying to convince us that we really do support it, even if we think we don't. It's nice of them to try to make up our minds for us.
