51. Lifeless Neocon Losers are reading this thread and commenting.
Edited on Mon Dec-03-07 12:16 AM by quantessd
Revel in the utter loathsomeness of their responses:

"Is she really so dependent upon the government that she would neglect her own daughter's health??"

"If you want healthcare, GO. TO. THE. COUNTY. HOSPITAL. They can't turn you away. You might have to suffer the indignity of sitting in a waiting room with some of the same people you claim to want to help, but that's life. You are not owed healthcare, but you can get it, anyhow."

My favorite post:
"...daughter has certainly pissed away her life in the fashion that she can only get a job in the mall. Too bad for her. She needs to get a better job and stop expecting the government to do it for her."

Gross. These comments were written by actual people. Granted, they are pathetic losers in several ways, but know that real people actually wrote these repulsive comments after lurking's sad.
