(Newser) – Taking a break from slightly more serious measures—$20 billion budget deficit, anyone?—California’s state house today passed a bill that would have the state observing “Cuss-Free Week” effective Sunday. “We’re not going to be calling out the CIA or FBI or CHP to go around and penalize people if they say a four-letter word,” the Democrat sponsoring the bill tells KCBS-AM—but notes that there will be penalty jars around the Capitol, with contributions slated for charity.

I grew up in California before the Liberals and Democrats Destroyed the state just like they want to do with the country. I say F*** OFF. What are you going to do? Fine anyone who cusses? Arrest anyone who cusses? Shoot to Kill anyone who cusses? Where does this stupid ignorant Liberal kool-aid drinking bunch of losers get off on telling me not to cuss.

The best way to come up with a problem with the health care system, is to take a trip back in history when hospitals and how things where plan out. back in 1700s, people didn't need all this to get help form a Doctor I might not know what the issues are but there is a will I think that we should start a voucher healh grant and bond system, and tack on a little tax program. The U.S.Treasury and Banks should help more in the planning too the only thing is getting people to save there medication and when they do not need their medications to save it until the pain comes on, there is a lot of things people going to have to take pain in this world that god made. When people get real sick poor or rich, both have to pay the doctor bill some kind of way a small Treasury tax, that some one can think of to build up a system instead of beating it down. Get people to invest more in the Healthcare system Insurance are slow and need help people a little faster.I hope and pray that you' ll come up with something I have been studying in the Library on the Economy, I am Louis Glenn a U.S. Veteran I use my mind and my medications to fight my pain everyday I am in pain. Some people tell me they have money taken out of there checks from work and they still have a high drug cost. you got Animal care, and Inmate care the answer to the problem is in the history of Healthcare.
