    Why should I pray for a member of someone's family who was diagnosed
    with a dreadful disease for "financial help" when the person asking voted Republican and resists any conversation about single payer healthcare because it's socialist?

    Seriously?

    I don't want to see people suffer, but PRAY? How about get HEALTH CARE?

    Sometimes I could just scream.

    1. 99.9999% of "christian" conservatives and other right wingers lie when they say they'll pray

    for someone. It's just a free thing to say that doesn't cost a thing and no one checks anyway. Besides, praying would involve some form or caring about another human who they really don't give a damn about to begin with unless it's them or a their family. But then their friends don't give a damn either.

    4. Do you really allocate grace and karma based on a person's political beliefs?
    Wow.

    That's called dehumanization, and has led to some of history's most heinous and gruesome atrocities. Not only can dehumanized humans can be treated cruelly without burden of conscience, but that cruelty even starts to feel like moral propriety.
    You need to read more of DU if your just now noticing this.

    5. Wtf are you talking about? I allocate grace and karma? ummmmm no
    I don't have that kind of power.

    When a person VOTES in the HOPE that health care remains an expensive commodity, and that people's lives don't matter to them....why the hell should they expect magical forces to step in and help them when they need it?

    I don't care if you are a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim or a Pagan....really, I don't. At this point, whatever you believe is your personal myth...and I have nothing against it. However a vote...health care is something tangible that is within reach NOW...not something we PRAY for.

    14. That's the Republican motto. Thank you. We finally agree, except for ONE thing
    You forgot to mention "and people who look like me."
    You are just to stupid... how do you remember to breath?

    6. Doesn't cost anyone a thing to donate...
    a few good thoughts for a better outcome. When it comes to poverty, disease, and death...politics should not be a consideration.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    No, they are ready for the government to pay people to shove other people into ovens without a second thought, and to get union representation for the shovers.

    But the DUers don't want to actually do the shoving, they would have to report that to welfare as work, and it could cut into their benefits.

    Hmmm... That's a very conservative sentiment for an avowed liberal. The assimilation is on schedule... :D

    You have to understand-I actually met the Detroit chapter of DU at a restaurant once. I was the only one with a job.

    LOL!

    Was the restaurant running FOXNews on the TV? And if so, which one of them demanded that it be changed to MSNBC?
