I don't know if I would rather that, or having Russia use our President like a puppet like it seems is going on.

All the good things over the last 4 years are pretty much set to be gone already. It's getting a little ridiculous at this point.

Plus he never sat in on the intelligence briefings, sounds like he tried to play it off as "he is too smart for those".

The next 4 years will be interesting to say the least. Hopefully he will prove all the concerns wrong, but at this point he is appearing to just work the system to try make his friends richer, while the rest struggle.

The ACA. Allowed people who were otherwise denied the ability to have health insurance. I know several people PERSONALLY who would not be alive if it wasn't for this. One was literally bedridden for the last 5 years with several severe diseases, and because she could get covered by insurance she could afford treatment. She is now an active photographer and living life. Hopefully that lasts for her, as we all know diseases don't just go away.

Yea, I get that the system wasn't great-everyone blamed the President for the costs and ignored that the INSURANCE COMPANIES WERE WHO RAISED PRICING TO CONTINUE WITH THEIR INSANE PROFITS. Some CEOs are literally making 250K PER DAY, yet no one seems to question this. "It's all Obama's fault".

(Side note: I still love seeing people whine about "Obamacare" but love the ACA not realizing they are THE SAME THING)

Call it what you will, but now ANY pre-existing condition can be denied. It could be glasses for nearsightedness. It could be a heart medication you need to survive. It could be literally anything the insurance companies "in house expert" deems pre-existing. Technically they have advised that literally being a woman is a condition. Most of the people I spoke with who were against it had literally done ZERO research other than what Fox News showed them, and several were users of the ACA, and now are going to be denied due to their conditions.

I sure hope none of you have any medical concerns once you get out from under your parents...you will have one heck of an eye-opener.


Another good thing-we did not have a REALITY TV STAR as the most powerful person in the country/possibly the world. This man can't even handle criticism on social media, HOW IS HE GOING TO BE GOOD AT HIS JOB?! Some country will smack-talk him and he will nuke them! He's been trying to circumvent the democratic process with all these executive orders, some of which have been questionable as to if they are even legal. Also don't forget his business conflicts of interest that have seemingly been ignored...we made Carter get rid of a peanut farm, but Trump has FOREIGN DIPLOMATS PAYING HIM RENT FOR OFFICE SPACE IN HIS BUILDING. He is literally being paid by foreign government to house them in his offices. HOW IS THAT NOT A CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

I do honestly hope he lives up to even half his promises. So far it seems he is lighting the sinking ship on fire...

Nothing, but respect for your friend/ friends. The rest just seems like a conglomerate of all the Radical Lib and Dem stuff you usually see on F*c*book... Do you really think any President to date hasn't had that kinda shit, or worse going on?

I Think it's funny you blame the Insurance company's on some "Catch 22" type shit... Obummer and his Administration knew damn right that Insurance company's where going to increase Premiums (especially if you have children on your policy over 18) for millions of family's, already happy with what they had. They wanted young adults to get off of there parents Insurance (which for most, was cheaper and better than anything Obama has offered to date), so they could charge them more, or the same cost for less coverage (which most couldn't even do for months, because of how terrible and embarrassing the system they created was).

What you glanced over and what CNN, MSNBC and the average F*c*book user don't see, is that MILLIONS of family's health premiums went up (about $25 a month/ per non-spouse individual) when the ACA was announced back in 2010. Knowing how much of a fuck up the Obummer Administration was doing with the tech/ support side, many family's just went with the slight price increase. It wasn't until the second abortion of what you know as "ObammaCare" did that $25 hike go to $100+ fucking dollars every month!!! This left millions of people in there young 20's through out the years, with zero health insurance (parents where basically like "pay that shit, or you will be removed immediately") and penalties ranging from $300-$600+ a yr, that most would rather pay than $150 a month for the Bronze package of ObammaCare (that everyone said was going to cost $60-$90 a month).

The Obummer Administration had people holding there hands 100% of the time. It's no wonder that after 8yrs there is some good that they did, but most that don't associate with polls and Social Media, see that Administration for what it truly is... a complete failure.

@Bryan, damn, man...

1. I work every day in a position right between A. Big employers and B. Insurance companies.

2. You just said "They wanted young adults to get off of there parents Insurance (which for most, was cheaper and better than anything Obama has offered to date), so they could charge them more, or the same cost for less coverage..."
pinch

You do realize that Obamacare is the reason that medical insurance companies have to allow parents' dependent kids on until age 26, right? They weren't trying to get kids off their parents' coverage. The whole point is to keep them on while the additional costs is low, for both parents and insurers. Then give people coverage who don't have it, or have crappy coverage.

A lot of the people who complain about higher premiums are people who were under-insured before.
BUT now they can get real insurance even if they're out of a job, and not end up delaying care, or going to the emergency room every time, or getting shut out cause they have a disease but aren't disabled, yet... or are a BMX rider.

They're not used to what the rest of us are, which is that good insurance costs money and there's no way that the premium is going down next year. wink
That's normal and we're used to it. BUT at least more people have better coverage.

Again, what good does it do increasing the dependent to 26, if your premiums rise $100 a month?

Also, my parents insurance had way more coverage than the cheapest Bronze package at the same price (There insurance coverage was equal, or better than the Gold package).

Can you explain that?

I swear I heard Obummer quote that same "A lot of the people who complain about higher premiums are people who were under-insured before." I call BULLSHIT.

2/7/2017 5:33 PM

First, let's say the $100 /month is totally accurate. Ok. Now let's say you had to buy your own insurance at 23 instead of 26. The $100 a month cost increase to your parents you keep talking about would be a similar deal if you were buying good insurance for yourself instead.

Plus your parents' plan is now better than it was! It now has to allow for pre-existing conditions, so if your mom was diagnosed with MS, or your dad lost his job, etc
(Sorry, but these things happen in mine and many families)
So you get something for the increase.

As to whether it's better now than before, was it an 80/20 indemnity type before and now the premium is higher, but it's a network plan now and maybe the deductible is lower? Or maybe they cover more specialist visits? Or the Rx yearly max is lower? Or they're happy cause the out of pocket max includes any of your costs too, and wouldn't have if you weren't on it until 26? Or if it's through an employer, do more of your parents' colleagues have health insurance now cause the company's "forced" to do the right thing and cover more?

It's not enough to just be like -my cost went up therefore Obama sucks & we need Trump in there.

This.

On top of that, MOST people have what qualifies as a "preexisting condition." Did you know poor enough vision requiring glasses counts? So does high blood pressure, pregnancy, chronic headaches or back/neck pain, medical care from a previous injury, and quite literally being a woman is considered in that by some companies.

So let's say you snap your leg. They cover that now, but say you got some screws and a plate, they very legitimately could deny covering the removal of those later, even if they are causing issues like pain, or the screws backing out! Same goes for rehab. If you needed rehab, they could deny it saying it was from a preexisting condition. If you have ever looked into an insurance policy, there is a TON of "if this is the case, this is what we do and don't do". The hard part is deciphering everything because of the jargon and medical terminology used. Your average person would NEVER be able to figure it out, and in some cases that is what they counted on. Now they can just say "welp, too bad" and you are SOL.

Their in house "medical experts" make the call on those scenarios, and in personal experience with my wife and son having Loey's Dietz (A connective tissue disorder that primarily causing aortic rupture and other blood vessel issues) and our heart doctor BEING PERSONAL FRIENDS with the Doctors who DISCOVERED THE DISEASE, their in house expert decided to deny coverage on certain medically necessary for her preventative care procedures (MRAs) in favor of an ultrasound on her abdomen to view blood vessels. The ultrasound was inconclusive. We had to pay for that AND the MRA's that took an extra SIX MONTHS to approve. This was during the time that their coverage could not be denied as a whole by the insurance company. Worst part? The disease needs decent monitoring, on a consistent schedule. High Blood pressure and stress can cause it to kill you with little warning. Her Aunt had her Aorta rupture, and had she not been able to tell someone there the issue, she would be gone. Her Uncle died suddenly from it. Just sitting at the table one minute, the next he was face down and gone. Their "experts" don't think that is something to keep an eye on, but quite literally there is not much we can do but argue and spend DAYS on the phones with them to try to prove to them their incompetence (if you have ever talked to a doctor on the phone you haven't seen in person and try to tell them they are wrong, you are in for one hell of a battle).

Thanks to the repeal of the ACA, they will be able to say "Nope, we aren't covering her for that because it is preexisting". They potentially could drop her and my son from the plans too. That means the same procedures that with insurance cost us around 2-3 grand a year are now going to cost around 10-15 grand, ON TOP OF PAYING FOR MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR THEM assuming they aren't just dropped.

I hope for anyone who is just whining about the few extra dollars they spend NEVER have to deal with insurance company politics and BS, and I hope they live perfectly healthy lives.

The cruel irony on this is that many of the people who were against the ACA because of the cost increase they may have seen will soon be facing the denial of care because of their preexisting conditions. On top of that, their premiums are NOT GOING TO GO DOWN AT ALL. Why would a company change pricing DOWN when people have been paying it and they could keep pricing the same and report LARGER PROFITS?

On top of that, some have complained "why should I be paying for so-and-so's insurance?" YOU'RE NOT. They have their OWN PLANS THEY PAY FOR. YOU ARE PAYING TO LINE THE POCKETS OF THE CEO'S WHO TAKE ENORMOUS SALARIES. Also, when people go uninsured and seek care, then default, pricing on medical care rises, so you then ARE paying for it when your doctor visits go from 60 to 70 to recoup those lost costs from uninsured defaulting on their bills.

we believe in gun control seeing as we had 1 or 2 massacres and LEARNED from them, people don't die here in the tens of thousand per year to guns unlike in the states, do we still have gun crime? sure but I'm pretty sure i can walk down the street without worrying about being capped by some lunatic....or a cop if i was african american lol

Gun murders in the US have been in decline for years... If you check out the FBI gun murder statistics (link below) from the last 7, or so years, you will see it's anywhere from 8K-9K per year. (Murders are in bold, because many libs and Dems like to include accidental death/ suicides) On a side note... if you look up how many people died of Aids/ HIV related deaths in those same years, it's the same if not more by 4-5k... Never here about that shit though.

A gigantic fawk load of those murders come from the many many low income, poverty stricken, Metropolitan areas in America (in which we have a lot more of than most European Countries). We have tons of Politicians and Mayors that have just straight given up & written off these areas.

People from overseas just don't realize how many big cities we have in America. If you removed all of the gun murders from the areas of these low income Metropolitan cities, we would have statistics similar to the "entire" European Continent.

Here is a direct link to the FBI murder statistics. Notice how many people are killed from rifles, or so often incorrectly called "Assault Rifles/ Assualt Weapons" in America? Now go compare that with the entire US population and tell me these rifles are any kind of "real" issue. (For the lazy it's about 250-350 per year)

If a gun isn't loaded and within arms reach, it's useless in my eyes. Good on you for exercising what little rights you guy's have. I think every law abiding citizen in this world should have the right to defend them self and loved ones with a firearm.

Also, welcome to the forum man! Feel free to ask me anything firearm related. We all share the love of bikes here, so that means even if we don't agree on Politics and laws, at the end of the day we agree on biking lol

I can understand why they include accidental/suicide in the figures as its still a death due to a gun, if it was your wife/daughter/family member that died due to a gun its only trivial whether it was accidental/suicide/homicide, that person is gone from your life forever and nothing will change that, guns being freely available also makes it far easier to kill yourself, Its probably why the US has double the suicide rate compared to the UK, its much easier to go through with it if all you have to do is pull a trigger and its lights out forever in a instant, we on the other hand have to get a bit more creative and it takes longer and its probably going to involve you suffering a bit till you croak it, and that is enough to put some people off, which in turn might lead them to seek help.

European cities still have pretty bad areas as well, for instance the city i live and grew up in (Glasgow) is one of the roughest areas of the UK, that's why when terrorists tried to bomb our airport all the locals here going on holiday went over and kicked the f*ck out of them even though they were on fire lol

i lived in Vegas for a year back in 1990, So i do know what its like to live in the states and what big cities in the US are like, the problem is when you have loads of firearms available to everyone it does kind of create a pressure cooker atmosphere where everyone is worried about their own protection, our firearms policy in the UK doesn't allow for "protection" as we don't have the castle doctrine you guys have, we are more similar to Canada that way, our weapons are for recreation not protection, besides if i find an intruder in my home i would rather tear them apart with my bare hands and claim self defence...i've never needed a gun (or any weapon for that matter) for protection, do i have weapons? yes, lots, katana's, nunchucks, swords, knives, etc i just don't consider them as objects for protection, their decorations that hang on my wall.

I can understand your side of the argument and you taking the position you take, your a responsible gun owner and you don't want your government taking away something you enjoy due to being a responsible firearms owner due to the actions of others, but every country that has put in good gun control background checks has had usually had reductions in gun crime/deaths in the years following IF its been done properly, the issue in the US is the lobbyist groups that would fight against it would end up agreeing to something that in the end doesn't really make any difference to the end numbers and all it does is piss off responsible gun owners because now they aren't allowed xyz, put in proper background checks and waiting periods and then you can have what you like as far as i'm concerned.

If the UK gov wanted to ban firearms i'd be out protesting against it, as we have strict gun control here that largely works and there isn't a need for anything like a total ban that you guys watching fox news think we have.

First, using the year 2013 the UK had a population of 60M vs the US at 320M... Would'nt you think we would have MORE than double your suicide rates? Also, get the Fawk out of here, you guys are heavily restricted in what caliber and type of weapons you can own... Not even going to waste my time with your half brainwashed lib, dem and fudd replies. You guys are so far down the rabbit hole and you mention protesting like you have a say in your country.

No, the numbers are based per capita bryan not across total population, and whats with the insults? can't your little redneck brain have an intelligent conversation about gun control without it hitting the panic button and resorting to name calling?

and yes we are restricted, i dont think we do 50 cal sniper rifles cos we probably don't have the space to shoot something like that safely, we have a land mass the equivelent of Alabama with 65 million people inhabiting that, and how big a caliber do you need? one of my mates rifles is a .308...so that's bigger than the AK47's 7.62x39mm round, think the .308 is the same as the Nato 7.62x51mm but i could be wrong on that, but that's enough for most round here.

edit...
apparently this is what we are allowed, 50 cals are allowed

I was born and raised in Southern California... far from redneck my man. I currently live in the great state of Tennessee (which is one of the best states for gun freedom in the Country). Your Countries bull shit laws is what made me give up my birth state, because of tard dems wanting to enforce the same BS laws over here.

You guy's can only have semi auto rifles in .22 rimfire... that's laughable and what I was getting at. I know your gun laws very well and you thinking that shit is even remotely fair, is equally laughable. It's still "Highly Restricted & Regulated" for the most part (including some air rifles).

The only reason I called you "half brainwashed" is because of your 1st sentence of your last post. How someone kills themselves shouldn't be a burden on the rest of the population & it shouldn't be brought up when people are talking about how many people are "gunned down" every year like some purge movie.

The fact is when Obummer, fellow libs and dems spew out gun hate, they can never say "8-9k people are murdered by guns every year out of 325M people" (mostly in shit abandoned by Government cities). They have to include accidental deaths/ suicides, so they can get the sheep worked up.

Apologizes about the insult, I should of not said that. I just get worked up when people like yourself think being heavily restricted by the Government is OK. Once shit goes into law here in the USA, it's almost impossible to reverse it. That's why many of us have completely put are foot down on anymore gun control... Shit don't work here. Criminals and terrorist are starting to realize heavy moving equipment works a lot better than a gun.

Well i call BS on you knowing our laws "very well" considering your first quote to me was

"Oh wait... You let yourself's be disarmed by your country"

And did you even look at the link i posted? a 50 cal bolt action is hardly a pop gun, it'll take down an aircraft if you want it to lol, you also have to remember that we are both in a different culture, guns have largely never really been a way of life in the UK historically like it is in the US and its not because of the restrictions which have only really came in due to massacres like hungerford and dunblane in the past 30-35years, different strokes for different folks and all that.

tell you what, you tell me why we in the UK need fully auto or high caliber semi auto weapons in this country...we cant use them for protection as i have previously said, and at what point do you consider a "reasonable" restriction?, none at all? so are cruise missiles also to be allowed? that is my point you have to have a point somewhere where there is a "no you can't have that"...in the end its for the collective good of preventing people doing stupid things to others.

as for the suicide thing, you were the one that started narrowing it down to talking about gun "murders" not me, what i said was "people don't die here in the tens of thousands per year to guns unlike in the states", which is factually correct when you count the numbers of people who died from a firearm regardless of if it was suicide, accidental, homicide or just down right stupidity cos they decided to try take a selfie with a gun to the side of their head and pressed the wrong button lol, in the US you have 1 veteran take his life every hour, and i bet a good chunk of those are firearms related given their life experience of being in the military, thats a sad state of affairs to basically say "fuck em" its their life, lets not count those deaths cos it doesn't suit the narrative i want to portray.

Again, your trying to compare a country with 60M people Vs. 325+M.

Also, semi auto handguns got banned homie... That = DISARMED!!!

Suicides in this country (especially related to veterans) is a completely different thing. Meaning it has to do with Mental Health. Go do some research on what are country did in the 70's & 80's related to that.

Also, we should ban cars, motorcycles, alcohol and tobacco, because of how many more people die from them Vs. guns. Oh... don't forget the HIV/ Aids thing earlier either.

the suicide rates are per capita bryan, meaning per 100000 people you have twice (12.1) as many dying as we do (6)so your 325m vs 60m argument goes out the window.

lol one type of weapon banned means I'm disarmed even though i can still have a 50 cal sniper rifle...ok then

Why are you going round in circles about banning guns?, I haven't once said they should be banned lol

can you be a bit more specific on what you mean with regards to mental health in the 70's and 80's? your being a bit vague on that point

a cars primary function is to take you from A to B, whats a guns primary function? if we are honest about it its to kill or maim someone or something, you can shout "for protection" all you like but that means your still going to use it to kill or maim in the process of doing your "protection" Also car deaths have been on a fair decline with advances in safety with airbags, side impact protection, better manufacturing etc, improvements in gun manufacturing would increase lethality, further penetraion, better accuracy, more stopping power etc...all the marketing terms you would hear.

AIDS according to the CDC 6,721 people died from HIV and AIDS in 2014
Gun deaths in the US in 2014 = 33'599.....but that'll be me using my damn lib/dem half brainwashed statistics that includes everyone lol

The CDC just started putting in the "due to any cause" thing... Didn't say that last year when it was 12.5K dead by HIV/ Aids. Now it say's "12,333 deaths (due to any cause) of people with diagnosed HIV" (for 2014). Still in recent years before that new definition it's close, or more to gun homicides when compared to are entire population.

As for the banned thing, I wasn't saying you support a ban, just giving off a generalization comparing how many people die everyday from lots of other shit (your the one going round in circles about your country increasingly disarming you). You could easily say high performance motorcycles/ cars don't belong on the road, or all vehicles should have a mandatory top speed of 60-80mph and if caught speeding you have to do a 10yr prison sentence (breaking NFA laws can get you a mandatory 10yr prison sentence) . Many more lives would be saved that way than gun prevention, no? I guarantee the speed thing would be easier to enforce here in the states.

You can't conceal a .50cal rifle and use it to protect yourself everyday. Thus why they took away your semi-auto handguns.

Look up Ronald Reagan repelling "The Mental Health Systems Act" of 1980. He basically dumped thousands upon thousands of mentally ill people on the streets, after Jimmy Carter put them in various programs/ whatever. This has resulted in a lot of the mental health and related health issues we have today.

I swear I've seen statistics and reports of your per 100,000 rates being higher than the 6 and closer to 11, but at the end of the day America has a huge problem with suicides and it's usually always more than homicide and not just mainly guns (which is what most people tend to fixate on).

Gun homicide rates are steadily going down in America, gun accident's are at an all time low and yet more guns (especially semi-auto variants) have been purchased and bought in the past years than ever before... Can you at least agree and recognize that?

No one in the UK really cares all that much about guns. The restriction was so long ago that it's just normal to us now. Does it make the UK a worse place to be? No, it makes it safer. I'm happy knowing the chances of my son being shot are practically non existent.

My dad lost a lot of money when he had to hand his firearms in, he was a member of 3 clubs, and secretary for 1. He was good at it too, it was his thing. And he was qualified to teach people. Sure, he's still a bit bitter he had to give it all up because the police and government are retarded, and I think it's a shame he had to give up something he loved. But it happened, and now we're better off for it.

Edit. You can still own any caliber pistol in the UK, as long as it has a stock. And let's face it, a 625 acp .45 is better than any semi anyway. You can fire rounds quicker than a semi, and if you're good you can reload and fire another 6 rounds quicker than emptying 12 rounds from a semi
