Daily Show scene
Or the civil war or any war or the persecution of woman maybe prohibition which rose crime to a severely high amount or maybe Detroit (I'm from Detroit calm down)
Captain America: ...
Tony Stark: ...
@Stuckpixel Police, I love Detroit! I spend a few weekends a year there. I wish I had enough time to enjoy the whole city. :(
@Stuckpixel Police, no obamacare clearly is worse
@Stuckpixel Police, same, just went to the auto show last week
@Stuckpixel Police, or remember that one time when we gathered up all of the Japanese Americans and threw them into "Internment" Camps?
@Stuckpixel Police, don't forget Salem, Southern Jim Crowe Laws, destruction of Native culture and land, The Great Depression, 9/11, school shootings, bombings, and the twilight series.
@Stuckpixel Police, i personally believe that no joke is off limits , however i don't like it when people use the excuse i am this so i can say that or i am from here so i can insult that place. To me being from a certain place or being a certain person should not count as a pardon. It is pretty much like a black guy saying slavery was cool but because he is black it is ok. We are all free to say what we want but we shouldn't use our background to gain amnesty. Sorry for the long rant.
The phrase "one of" makes it a perfectly fine statement.
@PeanutButterPopsicle, But then that would imply Obamacare is up there with slavery, or Native American Relocation, or the civil war...
@PeanutButterPopsicle, clear to anyone with an eighth grade education.
@Proiactare, An opinion is allowed to be ludicrous. Also, the long term repercussions of Obamacare haven't manifested yet, so who knows how good or bad it'll be.
@PeanutButterPopsicle, True True
@PeanutButterPopsicle, the short term repercussions suck. When obama took office I had $25 per pay premium, $250 ded, and $3000 out of pocket Max. Now I have $260 / $3000 / $10000. Obama says that's affordable. And the ded / out of pocket used to have per person sub limits. With university costs starting in Aug my family would be better off if I died and they went on social security.
@Proiactare, sheesh we had a lot of low points.
@KMN, Yup, Obamacare just helps people with pre-existing conditions, but it fvcks everyone else. I'm lucky that my dad gets insurance from his job and I'm still young enough to be in his insurance plan. Don't think I could afford tuition and health insurance.
@CriTiKa1, It enslaves us doctors and is already killing people by denying medicines and care
@CriTiKa1, same here
@CriTiKa1, I have two preexisting conditions (Marfan's Syndrome and Hypogammaglobulenemia), and Obamacare screws me over. I work 31 hours a week (because my job refuses to let me go full time), and I had health insurance through my job before Obamacare. A plan in my area is $460 a month, when I make less than the mandated level of poverty. I also go to college, and luckily get financial aid. It's cheaper for me to pay the fine of not being able to afford health insurance than actually to have it.
@KMN, you both should get started then
I heard Slavery is a slut.
@Mr Swimmer, i wish i could give 5.3 upvotes for this
Let's go back in a time machine to 100 years ago to ask your great-grandmother what she thought about politics… Oh yeah, that's right…
What is even Obama care... I'm from Australia that's all... Isn't it just free health care?
@UnluckyMonk, it's a lot more complex than that, because it is using up money that our government doesn't have :/
@cheese doodle, yeah but it's just a small increase in taxes?
@UnluckyMonk, Not really small and not everyone would use it.
@UnluckyMonk, yeah, Obamacare (or affordable care act) is just another way to help our already f'd up system by helping to get health care for everyone in our country in order to lower our taxes. (similar to Europe and Canada) However, even though the plan was originally made by Republican Mitt Romney, the plan was adopted by Obama because of it's actual usefulness and since the election required everyone to hate Obama, the Republican Party turned on their own plan in order to make Obama look bad.
To conclude, uneducated republicans still argue about it today and still avoid all the evidence pointing to its beneficial properties.
... Thanks Obama.
@UnluckyMonk, nothing free about it. Even if have no job u have a massive deductible to meet. Wife's option is 400 a month on a 15k salary for just her, family is more than her pay. Mine is up 5k in out of pocket costs from 5 years ago. Plus since she has a job that offers a plan we get a 120 a month surcharge and if we do not meet physical / take health classes yearly its another 40 dollar surcharge. Obamacare is closer to fuedalism than the panacea it was masqueraded as.
@Shadico, waiter there is defense politics in my funnies
@Trollpets, I dunno seems like good idea for me. I guess it just seems a lot like, I can afford it but why should I have to pay for other people's health care. Seems like people just want to save money but it seems like a good idea, guess you just need to be on
@UnluckyMonk, see for me it just made my health insurance premium go up like a few hundred dollars
@Trollpets, and that is an effect that most of us in a capitalist society dont like. We dont like being forced to purchase a good by the government
@UnluckyMonk, sorry hit enter on accident but looking on the outside in it doesn't seem that bad and on the whole a good thing.
@UnluckyMonk, what it is is just a way for Obama to say that he contributed to society but Hillary Clinton's health care is like 10gazillion times worse
@Shadico, It has no beneficial properties. It hurts us more than it helps us.
@UnluckyMonk, There are people that have lost their health care because Obamacare increased their premium. All it does is force people to pay for the health care of others with pre-existing conditions, which were always denied health care by companies who didn't want to pay for their treatment.
@CriTiKa1, how do you lose health care if you get it for free? And isn't it good that people who need treatment but can't afford it get it?
@UnluckyMonk, It's not free. You still have to pay for it. Like I said, the a lot of people have to pay extra money so that others who previously couldn't get health care can now get it. Some people's premiums went up hundreds of dollars per month. And no, it's not good. A lot of people don't, including me, don't want to pay someone else's hospital bills.
@UnluckyMonk, that exact thing wouldn't happen. Sry for the long post.
@UnluckyMonk, we had to force the 20 somethings to get healthcare to pay for the older populations health issues but changed what the basic free/low income insurance covered (Medicare or Medicaid I can never remember which) which in turn changed what all insurance covered (everything is based off..let's say Medicare) and caused insurance premiums to rise and Drs to stop accepting some insurance companies because of change in how they reimbursement after Obama said
@cheese doodle, *that we could have if we didn't spend so damn much on a standing military. Who are we at war with, exactly? Oh ya, nobody. Guess we still need the troops and weapons right now though. Just in case, right? -.-
@UnluckyMonk, what is "free" about health care? You mean the 50% of people who actually pay a positive amount of taxes support the people who pay nothing. Doctors and hospitals need money to run, they are not charities.
@Shadico, my plan got cancelled and now I pay 20% more in one year for a worse plan and I have to pay it out of my pocket because if my job paid it would be even more than that. I take no government assistance and pay 30% of my income to taxes. Act all smug again.
@Shadico, that's how I thought it was :) thanks for the info man
I'm not sure she's weong
Well the way Obama is leading the U.S. it may end up being the start of the worst part of American history.
@said someone once, *turns on microphone* HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN ABOUT SLAVERY?!
a list of worst things:
"about a week ago"
captain America-civil war
peanut butter engine oil
@StuckPixel Owner, oh yea and slavery
@Ironic meta memer, well I meant along with that stuff
If you're old enough to vote, then you can't bitch. That's about how political I'll get. Sorry, I saw some comments that made me wonder what people are talking about and I'm not even for Obama care.
obamacare is still awful, but it's not the worst thing to happen...
@cheese doodle, P.S. I am not defending obamacare
Fun fact: Lincoln only freed the slaves to destroy the South's wealth. He was actually a huge racist.
@Pseudonymous, false; Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves because he believed all men were created equal.
@Pseudonymous, so the whole nation can't survive half free half slave speech years before his election means less than your interwebs induced exaggeration? He was not fond of negroes (term from his time) but he hated slavery.
@Pseudonymous, yeah he wasn't racist and he didn't really think that the law should allow for slaves down south and not up north. BUT pissing off the south and trying to convince half their population to fight on the union side was also an incentive in his choice.
@Pseudonymous, not really fun OR fact.
Fvck you. Fvck all you idiots arguing about nothing on the internet.
Is slavery really even that big of a deal when Africans sold their own race for whatever reasons. And when the free'd slaves returned to Africa they enslaved their own kind? Before u downvote id like to say im not a close minded republican and Im definitely not supportive of slavery
For real, the girl is right
Ok I'm playing devils advocate here for her she said "one of..." Not THE worst thing just one of the worst
So everyone being able to afford their medical bills is the worst thing in American history, well we must be better off than I remember.
@Udder Despair, problem is its still not affordable. Insurance company would raise premiums even without Obamacare but people still blame Obamacare for the price increase. Completely forgetting its been going up every year long before Obama. My issue is the tax paperwork consider %8 of you income as affordable healthcare. I would be depending proof from insurance companies that their expenses went up at the exact same time that preexisting conditions had to be excepted to show proof that they weren't just price gouging
No I don't remember, but I hope she was cute.
I don't remember it but I know I about slavery
What interview is this?
@TheCreativeUserName, Jon Stewart
@Chips, thanks friend
