Take action now:

Obama keeps lying about number of uninsured "Americans"

Earlier today, Barack Obama held a town hall about healthcare [1] and - leaving all other issues aside - he lied:

I don't have to explain to you that nearly 46 million Americans don't have health insurance coverage today. In the wealthiest nation on Earth, 46 million of our fellow citizens have no coverage.

As pointed out many times before, that number is off by around 9 million. According to the Census Bureau, only around 35 million Americans - i.e., U.S. citizens - are uninsured. The other 9 million or so are foreign citizens, whether here legally or illegally. Whatever their status, they aren't Americans and they aren't "fellow citizens". If Obama can't be honest about a matter involving millions of people, what else is he misleading you about?

See also Obama reiterates magical, dishonest plan: illegal aliens won't get healthcare because illegal aliens will be legalized first.

We know the next move will be a total government of total fascism. But its funny that obama is not lying about the uninsured in a way; when this little monkey talks he is telling you that Americans are uninsured, "but it all depends on what you mean by Americans", if you put all the third world people who have invaded "the former USA", This monkey would be telling you the reality and reality to a monkey person is called uprightness. buy guns!

I don't know why you guys don't trust this congress to do what their constituents demand............I mean we demanded they build a fence and they signed that bill even though Bush gritted his teeth when he did it! And now we feel secure because they have built the fence as promised.!.....Huh, what , really? Oh yeah that's right they didn't build the fence and the same damn problem exists because they are lying PIGS!!!!!!Why are people angry? Because we have to do the same thing over and over and they still refuse to do the simple things that solve problems. THROW THE BUMS OUT!!!!

Im getting tired of all you conservative assholes bitching about the same things over and over. First of all 39 million people is a whole lot of people that don't have access to healthcare. With a nation as wealthy as ours you would think that we could do much better when it comes to that. You inbred bastards rather bitch and moan instaed of contributing to a solution. The system as it stands is broken, but you wont realize that until its too late and you mother dies in front of you. You had 8 years to solve the problem. You fucked it all up and now its our turn so go sit your stupid asses in the back of the bus and let us drive it for a while. And stop your bitching about your tax dollars being spent wrongly. I pay alot more in taxes then you bastards and that is an honor to live in the greatest country in the world. You cunts always want something for nothing. Good day.

Everyone has access to health care dumbass, just go to an ER next time you have the sniffles you leftist pussy. The system as it stands works just fine for me. There is nothing "broken" about it, except that illegals get health care without paying for it. They should be sent home after they pay their bills and serve time for being criminals. Please explain how "we" fucked it up when your invading countrymen from mexico bankrupted every hospital in sight? You pay more taxes than me? Such a statement is obviously coming from someone who could not find their ass with both hands. We had 8 years to solve the problem? No one who regularly comments here voted for the leftist Bush, you fucktard. Remember, your bulldyke bitch Hillary tried the same thing in 1994 and it failed. If you don't like it go live in a single payer country like Canada or the UK so you die standing in line like the DMV. Government is the problem, not the solution you Stalinist piece of shit. And what is it we are asking for that we are not paying for? We are asking to be left alone from socialist cunts like you. You have to be the stupidest commenter I have ever seen here. No wonder, as "hispanics" are generally a full standard deviation in IQ than whites, but don't let your own stupidity stop you from opening your rotten piehole. Jackasses like you only help the cause. Please, keep commenting.

Nice, i like more bitching from a conservative dickhole. By the way you think you are probably a fuckhole that lives somewhere in an uneducated part of this country. You dont give a fuck about anybody but yourself do ya. What do you think bankrupts hospitals. It's the people that don't have insurance that all of us have to pick up the bill for you prick. Im pretty sure you have at least someone in your piece of shit family that is uninsured. Do you care for those people? Oh, and going to the hospital emergency room is not having insurance you stupid fuck. They only have to stabalize you and send you on your way to suffer. By your little IQ comment there i presume you are also a rasist fuckhead who thinks whites are superior. let me let you in on a little secret. Hispanics a the biggest minority here you fat fuck, and we are here to stay. Why is it you have to resort to the color of someone's skin and/or their last name to make a point. I hope one of your uninsured family members dies a painful and long death. We'll see if you are not beggin for the government to save that person you love. And if you think you are smarter than me try me.

"By your little IQ comment there i presume you are also a rasist fuckhead who thinks whites are superior." Name one scientific contribution mexicans have ever amde, I dare you. You should probably take some remedial ENGLISH classes too while you're at it: it is spelled "racist," and that's what you call someone who is winning an argument with a shithead intellectually bankrupt leftist. But hey, don't let reality get in the way: you "hispanics" are more likely to be from illegitimate parents, never graduate from high school and wind up in prison even after three generations. Lower IQ is a scientific reality (just like Chinese and Ashkenazi jews tend to be smarter than whites), but don't let your low IQ keep you from opening your piehole, We love it here. "It sucks right, to see a hispanic which is doing better than you...." That statement is laughable, unless you consider being a high school dropout, being drug addicted and in prison as "doing better!!" Haha! Sure you're here to stay--during a long prison sentence or living in abject poverty. Good luck with that! Dual citizenship? You hate your own country and people enough to vote with your feet. You come from a shithole full of stupid people, that's why you're here. If it is such a great country then why don't you live there? You are the stupidest piece of shit ever. Your own arguments don't follow any logic whatsoever. You have lost the argument, but keep trying. The only cunt I see here is you, so fuck you stupid low IQ piece of shit, and have fun with the realization that YOUR people will never be in power, just like white people rule mexico as we speak.

HISPANIC THREADS IN AMERICA INTRODUCTION The contributions of Hispanics to the development and success of America are woven into almost every segment of the nation's history. To envision America untouched by Latinos is to imagine a country without much of its folklore and many of its achievements. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the Latino contribution. It also lets us recognize that America's cultural diversity--and the contributions of all its citizens--have made America's fabric strong throughout its history. The United States has a rich history that goes back 218 years. Hispanics have always played major roles in building this country and making it a better place. From the Revolutionary War that freed the United States from England to the Persian Gulf War, Latinos have proudly served this country in the Armed Forces. And throughout U.S. history, Latinos have prominently participated in building the West; in medicine and science; in entertainment, business, education, civil rights, and politics; and in the great American pastime of baseball. BEGINNING WITH REVOLUTIONARY ROOTS When the colonies on the East Coast of what became the United States rebelled against England, Hispanics played a pivotal role. As Governor of the Louisiana Territory, General Bernardo de Gálvez sent money, rifles, and other supplies to General George Washington. Latinos also raised special collections to aid the fight for independence. Captain Jorge Farragut came to the U.S. from the Spanish Island of Minorca to fight against the British. Captain Farragut fought in the Revolution, then in the War of 1812, as part of the U.S. Navy. CREATING U.S. TECHNOLOGY As the new nation expanded across the continent, pioneers sought both homes and wealth. The West seemed rich in metals and ores, but the settlers knew little about how to mine them. When gold and other valuable metals were discovered in California and other states, many prospectors knew only what they had. They had no idea of how to get it out of the ground. To do so, they borrowed mining techniques from Mexico, Peru, and Chile. In a popular California mining legend, James Marshall, upon discovering gold, supposedly proclaimed the news yelling, "Gold! Gold!" What he really said was "Chispa," Spanish for "bright speck." BUILDING THE WESTERN U.S. The end of the Civil War marked the start of a mass migration of people into the Western territories. While settling the frontier, people realized that the farmland differed from the land in the East. Irrigation and water supply became far more important to frontier settlers than they had been back East. Managing the water supply was an art the settlers learned from the Mexicans, who learned it from the Pueblo Indians. Early songs and legends of the Old West featured an Americanized version of the "vaqueros" (cowboys) from México. Thus, the enduring legend of the cowboy of the Old West came almost entirely from the Hispan

I knew you could not cite one scientific contribution any mexican has ever made. You cite Spaniards to support your position---Spaniards are anglo europeans you retard, as white as me! And they rule mexico to this very day. You hate mexico so much you left! The fact is the spanish came in and subjugated and conquered you pussies, then they started fucking all of your women and diluting your race. You are a self-hating mexican who despises the anglo blood that courses through your veins. You are a bastardized child of the conquered, the loser of all the wars ever engaged in. Even Zapata had a Spaniard in the family woodpile. Not to mention the USA kicked your ass as well in 1848. No wonder your national hero Frida Kahlo is a woman who looks like a man. All of you mexican men are actually women who look like men. But your little vergas sure know how to make illegitimate children. Your spanish is even bastardized--mexico has no formal language academy. Even spaniards don't regard your language as spanish. Calling women cunts shows what you are made of. You are a misogynist coward like the rest of your countrymen. Look between your legs and you find a big stinky hairy vagina.

Language Main article: Languages of Mexico Mexico is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world.[1] The overwhelming majority of Mexicans today speak Spanish, however, the government recognizes 62 indigenous Amerindian languages as national languages. Some Spanish vocabulary in Mexico has roots in the country's indigenous languages, which are spoken by approximately 6% of the population.[2] Some indigenous Mexican words have even become common in the English language. For example, words such as tomato, chocolate, coyote, and avocado are Nahuatl in origin.[3] [edit] Religion An image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico. Main article: Religion in Mexico The Spanish arrival and colonization brought Roman Catholicism to the country, which became the main religion of Mexico. Today, 95% of the population are baptized Catholics, making the country the second largest Catholic nation in the world, after Brazil.[4] According to the Government's 2000 census, approximately 88 percent of respondents identified themselves as at least nominally Roman Catholic. Other religious groups for which the 2000 census provided estimates included evangelicals, with 1.71 percent of the population; other Protestant evangelical groups, 2.79 percent; members of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1.25 percent; "historical" Protestants, 0.71 percent; Seventh-day Adventists, 0.58 percent; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 0.25 percent; Jews, 0.05 percent; and other religions, 0.31 percent. Approximately 3.52 percent of respondents indicated "no religion," and 0.86 percent did not specify a religion.[5] [edit] Art Main articles: Pre-Columbian art and Mexican Muralism Maya relief sculpture from Palenque Mexico is known worldwide for its folk art traditions, mostly derived from the indigenous and Spanish crafts. Pre-Columbian art thrived over a wide timescale, from 1800 BC to AD 1500. Certain artistic characteristics were repeated throughout the region, namely a preference for angular, linear patterns, and three-dimensional ceramics. Notable handicrafts include clay pottery from the valley of Oaxaca and the village of Tonala. Colorfully embroidered cotton garments, cotton or wool shawls and outer garments, and colorful baskets and rugs are seen everywhere. Mexico is also known for its pre-Columbian architecture, especially for public, ceremonial and urban monumental buildings and structures.

Just want to educate the ignorance found in this thread. The world could say the same about us. We were Europeans once. We fled the country due to the injustices founds there and formed our own colonies here. We thrived and created this wonderful country. It seems due to our success other cultures, not just Mexicans, are attracted to our way of life. They have the same urge to thrive just like we did when we left our motherland. They are fleeing do to injustices in there respective countries. This is what we need to understand to be able to find a solution, instead of being ignorant and uneducated about the issue. Once this country's success was fueled by immigrant's sweat and blood and it still does. This country is beautiful and powerful because immigrants have fought next to Americans to defend our rights. Try to be more educated when you talk. You bunch make us look bad. Being prejudice to other cultures is stupid and backwards. All races have their scum. Those individuals that make the rest of the culture look bad and smear its reputation. We have rednecks or white trash. Mexicans have their own, and so forth. We need to understand that does not represent the culture in general.

"Being prejudice to other cultures is stupid and backwards." What you call "prejudice" is what I consider to be an accurate assessment. The only thing "stupid and backwards" is mexican culture. Take your multiculturalist bullshit and shove it up your ass. The Indians (also a backwards culture, distinct from mexican culture) did not give up this continent without a fight (which they lost) and neither are we going to allow ourselves to be displaced by an inferior, third world culture. WE are here to stay, but you can waive the white flag if you so choose. Just do not expect your countrymen to be pussified like you. If you hate this country so much, I implore you to leave. If you are not willing to fight for what your ancestors created, then you deserve to lose your dear country, and as far as I am concerned, you can go to hell. You are the epitome of a pussified American male--you lost your testicles and your American identity. You deserve to be displaced or relocated to someplace where relativistic "multicultural" propaganda is the norm. We are not buying any of that crap. I might suggest Canada or Great Britain where surrendering pussies like yourself are plentiful.

Look you stupid fuck, dont call me a pussy because im not a fucking redneck like you. Do not think you are speaking for all America, just the retarded side that talks and then thinks later. How the fuck do i hate my country asshole. My family has fought and died to protect your miserable freedom. Have you done that asshole... Have you lost someone in a war... Do you just talk out of your motherfucking ass. You are a sad excuse for an American. I hope you get drafted so you can see who defends and dies for this country. Believe it or not, there not all white males. You owe those people your pathetic life. You are a bigot of the first class. This is not what America is all about. We are not all like you, stupid asses. like Daniel said, go fuck yourself you ignorant asshole. I have sacrificed more for this country than you can imagine.

"Look you stupid fuck, dont call me a pussy because im not a fucking redneck like you." So I am redneck now? Thank you for bestowing the honor upon me. The only "stupid fuck" I see commenting here is you, but as long as it gets your panties in a bunch, then I am being effective. You are a pussy of the highest order, now run along little girl. "Believe it or not, there not all white males. You owe those people your pathetic life." White males built this country, and you cannot stand it--you hate whitey with such a deep bitterness and resentment it must keep you up at night. I don't owe anyone anything you fucktard. Daniel was a self hating mexican, just as you are a self hating white person. You're not an American, You must be a frenchie the way you surrender and wave a Nazi flag to welcome the invaders. The petit bourgeois were the greatest enemy of Lenin, just as I am your worst nightmare, you fucking pinko commie coward.
