You forgot the food king or?? Cain the master of sales.
I am wrong Cain is there.
And now…. the REAL cartoon of the day!

Have a nice day!
“All that seems indispensable in stating the account between the dead and the living, is to see that the debts against the latter do not exceed the advances made by the former.” – James Madison
Com on…..OMG here is the real one.
Hey Gene! I hope you are well today.
That cartoon isn’t really that good. We all know that Obozo IS the one that is gutting $716 BILLION out of Medicare to pay for Obozocare. Just a fact and everyone knows it now.
Don’t get me wrong… I can laugh at both sides equally. This one just isnt that good.
“Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.” – Ronald Reagan
Uninformed people should not be allowed to vote! You need to get the facts about the “gutting $716 BILLION”. After you check those facts, look at Paul Ryan’s plan then open your mouth! Your party is so ashamed of the legacy left behind and those responsible that they are pretending they don’t exist. I am surprised C.Rice was a speaker, but then the Republicans needed some color in the convention hall other than the people from the islands that they brought in and put up front just to be seen. even though they don’t vote! If you know so much about Obamacare, explain it! I bet you don’t even know what it entails.
you must be drunken irishgirl to believe your own lies… Obozocare has been partially financed by taking $716 BILLION from Medicare. It’s all right there for all to see, and anyone that is not a leftist freak or useful idiot can see that this is the truth.
Have a nice day!
“Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured … but not prove they are a citizen.” – Ben Stein
OMG, where yave y0u been? Are you working the Republican convention?
Why do you persist in saying Obama “gutted” Medicare? You know he didn’t. I know you are smarter than that, so the only reason I can see for your persistent theme is to try and rile up the opposition and at the same time try to keep the heat off Ryan. Take a look at his plan and tell me he isn’t trying to cut Medicare by the same amount, except instead of taking the money from the providers, he wants to take it from the insured. And before you leap to the defense of the poor oppressed providers, they have already agreed to the plan. I’m not going into the details because I think you already know them.
Have a nice day! How’s the weather in Tampa?
Metro… Obozocare steals $716 BILLION from Medicare because of this: Obozo promised that Obozocare would be revenue neutral (like only complete idiots believed that) so they took the money from Medicare to fund Obozocare. It was a budgetary trick. And for you to say that providers agreed to it is downright foolish, Metro. Who are the “providers”? Did they get every doctor in America to agree to take less money than they already do for rendering services? Of course they didn’t, and you know it. More and more doctors are now refusing to take Medicare patients and this trend will grow significantly if Obozocare is NOT repealed. It must be repealed because it will bankrupt us and destroy our healthcare system.
As to Ryan’s plan, it changes NOTHING for anyone 55 and older. Then gradually implements choice and market alternatives for members of progressively younger age groups that may want to choose a different way of financing their future healthcare. The fact of the mattter is, Metro, Medicare is going broke and something must be done. That’s not me saying that, it’s the Trustees of the program that say that. Obozo’s budgetary tricks are NOT solving the problem, just shifting budgetary items from Medicare to Obozocare.
Have a nice weekend, my friend!
“No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!” – Ronald Reagan
OMG . . .I disagree. It doesn’t steal $716 billion from Medicare and yes he did have agreement from the providers. They being the insurers and the hospitals. The insurers are counting on increased revenue from more insured people. The medical people are counting on receiving more fees because more people will be insured. They are also encouraged to strive for healthy outcomes rather than fee-for-service, whch encourages too many unnecessary tests and exams in order to pump up their income. No, they didn’t get every doctor in America to agree because they are afraid to take the chance that they might make less. Yes, doctors will drop Medicare patients. They have been doing that for a number of years already. If you were my age and on Medicare, you would know that. There has been a shortage of Primary Care Physicians going back at least ten years. But there are still doctors who do agree and who will take the chance. As one commenter put it, “I want to see the savings first.” But how are you going to do that without trying it? Yet, the same guy is willing to trust that Ryan’s plan will work without seeing the savings.
Yes, I am aware that Ryan’s plan changes nothing for me and other old geezers. Does that mean we shouldn’t be concerned about our children and grandchildren? Is it OK for us to say, “I got mine, screw you?” The problem with both plans is that they do nothing to control costs. You talk about Ryan’s plan, but what do you really know of it? Do we really know anymore than we do about the Affordable Care Act? I have heard him mention a figure of $6000 for vouchers to buy insurance. Then, the insuree needs to go shopping through all the plans to find one that suits them and that they can afford. How long would you estimate it would be before insurance premiums would rise to double and triple $6000 annually. Of course, one can remain with Medicare. And watch the co-pays go up at a faster rate every year. If you are happy with it, OMG, I will say OK, go for it and I hope it works out for you? I’m looking at it from the viewpoint of a retired person whose income is set at a certain point. I can’t work overtime and make more. Our COLA is mostly taken up by the increase in Medicare premiums, but that’s OK. My view is that decent medical care is a right for citizens. People like Ryan feel that it’s a privilege. Something only people with enough money should have. I did my own informal, totally unscientific poll once, asking people if they thought medical care was a right or a privilege. Out of my sampling of about 12 people, they split right down the middle. So based on the Metrognome poll, you do not have a majority.
Well, I have to get moving (according to Mrs. Metro). I need to get the oil changed and I need new tires and probably a new serpentine belt and hoses. I should be able to get by for about a grand today. Oh, yes, and on Wednesday I pick up my new hearing aids which Medicare will probably not pay for (will Ryan’s plan?) But, what the hell, just a mere $5600. But at least, if we ever talk face-to-face, I will be able to hear you.
Have a great weekend! I will get right to reading my new book and preparing my critique.
Fact check, once again, dimwit. Don’t call people liars when they are telling you facts. The truth is that Ryan’s plan guts the same amount of money. He is out to destroy Medicare, not mearly cripple it. Total destruction is what he’s after.
OMG…hadn’t seen your posts in while…hope you are doing allright. You know that $716 billion is a hoax from R squared. They know they are playing the race card as in “Hey let’s blame a thievery on the BLACK man” even black guys will believe “The BLACK guy did it!” Come on….Irish girl is going to take you to task…. I do like your response cartoon…EXCEPT it is really geared towards ANN “you people” and WILLARD ROMNEY. For those of us middle class that have been paying our taxes all along…we don’t fear the IRS.
Ryan intends to do the exact same thing and you don’t see it as a problem. Interesting.
Let’s see… Bush searched for eight years for Osama. Dems did it in three.
RoMoney passed a comprehensive health care bill and now wants to destroy the same thing applied to more people.
RoMoney had a few successes but he also gutted companies and put people out of work…. kind of the opposite of creating jobs. The list goes on but it’s pointess trying to a pig (you) to sing. Regards.
Oh boy I wonder did he share that whit his slavesS
“Smooth move exlax”
You really have one big problem and please feel free to share this with your PARTY. A family size box Ex.Lax.
The insulting capability of “smooth move exlax” runs the gamut from a mild put down (as to an friend who just said or did something reasonably stupid) to a scathing remark on the inane actions of a worthy idiot.
You have a nice…. On second thought
Have you ever noticed how repugnicans have to quote historical figures and “experts” all because they have never been taught to think…obozomustgo…this especially refers to you. Hell…rethuglicans don’t need an education, they can just cut and paste “gems” that other crazies have already said. Oh, I forgot they are all from the states with the poorest educational systems, all because they don’t think it is important to spend money on schools.
obozomustgo…don’ be so lazy, educate your self…haven’t you been listening to any thing those bozos have been saying at your rethuglican, American taliban, tea baggin (kkk), fun dumb a mentalist convention down there in Florida? If you can, read, read, read, you might find out the truth. And by the way, hurry, because if the two stooges, nit wit mitler and lyin’ ryan’ (the koch whores, the go back team) do everything the mega rich are telling them to do, the middle class will evaporate, 3rd world status will be the law of the land in the United Serfs of America. If there is anything here you don’t understand, ask an educated democrat to explain it to you.
Educate yourself…? Why do you think they call themselves “dittoheads”…”we don’t need no educatin’…”
Well I certainly wasn’t invited.. Didn’t even drop an apologetic note.. But then again, I’m not a Republicant.. Maybe if I had shown my ass they could have sniffed it out.. (imagine inviting this guy)..
