Currently, I don't have any form of health care... never have. When I go to the hospital, etc, I have to pay for it out of my own pocket. So, I rarely ever go, even with major illnesses and injuries. So, why the hell wouldn't I want some reform?

All the buzz seems to be surrounding Obama... not good.
In other news, high fuel prices might just take my job from me. I am guessing that within a month, my job will be gone. My current employer has demanded a raise from his contractor, but they have declined his request. So, he gave his one month notice and unless he gets a raise or they pay for his fuel, I am gonna be tossed into the fields of unemployment... and then what ever will I do?

Right now, everyone is arguing over which ground breaking headline will top the newspapers after the November elections, "First female president" or "First Black President". Evidently McCain is not even being considered by these folks.
Everyone out there better carefully decide whom the Democratic candidate is going to be to face off against McCain, because the Republican war machine has proven time and time again that they are capable of winning elections based on character assassination. And if "Flip-flopper" was strong enough to destroy Kerry and get Bush elected once again, even after all the horrors he produced, our Democratic nominee is going to face a hell of a fight. I urge you all to ignore the "first black man" or "first woman" president aspect of it. Vote on who will actually be able to save our country.
Wasn't Bill Clinton one of the most beloved presidents? When he was in office the US was very popular, leaders of other nations respected and admired him. He would be one heck of an asset.

Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading/plotting a voyage to the planet Mars in hopes of becoming the first Earthings to settle on mars. Questions... so many questions.
It is obvious that this Virgle site is an April Fool's joke, but the mass amount of people that responded sincerely isn't. Kinda funny and sad. Although this concept is very well being planned by NASA scientist and others around the world, the Virgle time frame of 20 years is a little unconvincing. Thumbs up on the joke though.

Hillary Clinton: (n) A unit or tool of strength which is used to rectify the errors of past Republicans.
In reference to the republican-esque college student who asked Chelsea Clinton if the handling of the Monica Lewinski incident revealed weaknesses in Hillary's leadership ability, I feel obligated to say: Shut up!
I am tired of hearing people's opinion that a candidate isn't strong enough to lead, or they do not have enough foreign relations experience or whatever the repetitive verbal sludge is. Look at the current incumbent. Unintelligent, idiotic, misguided, confused, one-track minded, define George W. Bush, and he has gotten the position twice. So, while one might be able to argue that Obama is all of those things that make him not capable of leading, Hillary is far from it.
If anything, the Monica Lewinski incident has shown that Hillary is a strong, capable leader. Most people would have broken down and lost it. Yet, there she is, steadfast and confident in her abilities, making the hard decisions everyday as wife, mother and Senator. Hillary has a vast amount of experience, while Obama has hardly any at all. Hillary has already been in the white house, as first lady, and knows how things operate. This will be a whole new ballgame for Obama.
Obama needs to drop out of the race for the good of the party, for the good of the nation and for the good of himself. He will only get McCain elected. And the media need to be more balanced and end their love affair with Obama. I can't believe they are denying the grand abilities that a Clinton can bring to the White House.
A Clinton can get it done. Vote for Hillary.

Jack Kevorkian, assisted suicide advocate known as "Doctor Death", famous for helping over 100 people end their lives through euthanasia, said on Monday he will run for the U.S. Congress.
The 79-year-old pathologist announced his bid to run as an independent less than a year after being released from prison where he served eight years for second-degree murder.
"I have no ties, no fetters. I am free," Kevorkian told reporters, adding that he planned to run against the "tyranny" of the U.S. Supreme Court which he said has robbed Americans of their rights.
I am not gonna discuss Kevorkian's past and one's right to euthanasia if they so choose. But while thinking about Kevorkian as congressman, I can't help but to shiver.
So, convicted felons can't vote in elections, yet hey can run for office? He hasn't got the 3000 petition signatures needed in order to run, but let's see if he gets them. I don't know what kind of chance he has in Detroit, but I would imagine very low. Interesting nonetheless.
