    American Idol is getting more and more less diverse with Paige Miles getting sent packing last night with the Top 10 tour being with 1 African American in Michael Lynche and 1 Latino in Andrew Garcia (he’s ripe for Bottom 3 appearance because he’s tanking badly).

  41. this healthcare bill is bull sh*t on every level. it will hit hard working middle class guys like myself who happen to work for a large company AND i already pay a lot for my insurance.

    aside from me me talk, let’s give healthcare to people who already milk the system for everything they can, providing them absolutley no iniative to ever contribute to society. if you give give give, people will just take take take.

    people are accepting of it now, wait until they see $ coming out of their pockets.

  47. i get the bill and i saw the little boy who’s mom who died of cancer battling insurance companies to the very end. touching story and obviously very sad. in reality though had she had this basic coverage the gov. is going to make you have, does she live, or is she on line waiting to see a doctor she will never get to see b/c there aren’t enough of them? how do they solve that snafu? there is such little incentive for people to even consider getting into the medical field as it is, this only adds to it.

  48. Actually that is incorrect…where I work I have a large amount of people studying to become doctors, nurses and druggists….

    The medical field still attract a huge amount of smart decided people….

    Some who have to study for year to pass their boards…..

    in answer to you and the other guys..the more people insured..the more the cost should go DOWN! Not up…..

    Do have any idea how much it costs this country to pay for treatment of uninsured sick people?

  70. The untold story is how the Mexicans are retaking the land we took from them in the war. By 2050 New Mexico, Arizona, California and Texas will all have Latino majorities. About 60% of the nation’s Latinos will live in these states. Texas and California are the nation’s two largest states and they are both projected to have Latino Majorities by 2030 like it or not.

    That is tough. Their children if born here are legal. LBJ signed the 1965 Immigration act which opened the door to Non Europeans. I wonder what he would think of a Latino Majority in his homestate. We encoraged Whites in the 1830’s to move to Texas after it split from Mexico and before it joined the union. Texas was independent for about 10 years.
