MamaG - It is ridiculous what medical companies are allowed to charge for medicines.

By: MamaG on 7/19/13 at 10:36

I agree, bfra, 100%.

People incomes below 40,000 dollars are enemy of future

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 10:44

Raspy - Why are you putting yourself down? Do you intend to just fade away because you are in that catagory?

By: MamaG on 7/19/13 at 10:55

What does that even mean, Raspy? My income is below that. Are you saying I will be a future enemy? Or that the future will be my enemy? Clarify please.

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 10:57

MamaG - Raspy has never posted a comment that takes in common sense or even any sense, for that matter.

Mama, if you research, you could probably find it less expensive or have the manufacturer donate it. I have 2 friends who get free drugs from the drug company that makes it.

Everyone who has lost a job or can't find a job is having a hard time right now. The Obama(don't)Care plan will not solve the problems. Gov-ment is too big and too imposing. The IRS and other scandals have proven that.

And Trayvon travesty is just a smoke screen for Washington to stay under the radar with other stuff.

Everybody that thinks bud makes any sense at all, post a LOL!

By: MamaG on 7/19/13 at 11:22

Bud, I don't even know what it is--they didn't give it to me but just called it in to the pharmacy. It's okay. I think I have some flonase I can use. Thanks for your input though.

bfra--I just did not understand what he meant! And I don't understand what the GZ/TM situation has to do with the Healthcare Reform, either. But, maybe it's just me???

Have a good weekend everyone.

When did you start believing Obama? He doesn't even know the definition of truth, let alone it's meaning.

By: yogiman on 7/19/13 at 11:43

MamaG,,Simply ask the pharmacy for a copy of your prescription. Just tell them you want to check it out with another pharmacy.

It was sent to them for you. Its yours, they can't refuse it.

Yogi: You have to remember, Obama is a lawyer. US Constitutional Law...all celebral.
Not a trial lawyer.
And all lawyers are being paid to, "organize the truth".

Brainless blob always cutting Obama down! HA! Where & what is Obama? Then where & what is the brainless blob? The answers speak volumns!

How can a turnip green queen have a have opinion?

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 4:52

Raspy, how would I know? Ask the hag that keeps your sorry ass up. Plus you have too many haves in your question, did you go to school?

By: Rasputin72 on 7/19/13 at 5:12

Were you called. Called needle dick the bug ****eeeee

By: bfra on 7/19/13 at 6:03

Nope, you must not have gone to school!

For those of you who are ready to be ruled by the power of the government, ignore this information, especially those of you who think the man sitting in the Oval Office is in there legally.

For those of you who are concerned about the future of the USA, go to:


Then ask yourself: Why did congress pass this law.

By: yogiman on 7/20/13 at 6:51

Did you go to school, bfra? Was you raised by your parents to call someone a liar even though you didn't know how, or couldn't prove it?

By: yogiman on 7/20/13 at 7:23

Lo and behold: Just who is that man in Washington DC voting under the name Barry Soetoro?

Since he shows his home address as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, could that possibly be the Barack Hussein Obama who was shown voting in Chicago? They sure do look like twins.

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior; "A democracy is always temporary in nature, it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate who promises the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence to back into bondage."

The Obituary follows:
Born 1776, died 2012. It doesn't hurt to read this several times. Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by Obama: 19, Romney 29
Square miles of land won by Obama: 580,000, by Romney: 2,427,000.
Populations of counties won by Obama: 127 million, by Romney 143 million.
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by Obama: 13.2, by Romney: 2.1.
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy with some 40 percent of the nation's population already having reached the "government dependency" phase.

If congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals - and they vote - (against the wished of the American citizens) then we can say good bye to the USA in fewer that 5 years.

The biggest concern of the American people should be the fact that the people they elected to congress to represent them, knowingly let someone usurp the Oval Office who has admitted being a communist and a Muslim.

Rolling Stone matters almost as much as Mad Magazine.
