There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Blackhorse 70V is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

Raising the debt limit is not a blank check. Indeed, the measure requires a specific dollar amount. Typically, it is a one-paragraph bill. It does not include any increase in spending; it simply covers the bills that are due.

Americans do want to raise taxes - on the rich, oil companies, etc., who should pay their fair share. The House Crier, er Speaker, keeps saying that we should not raise taxes on job creators - but where are the jobs? (They got their tax breaks more than a decade ago!). The Repubs have not offered a single bill to stimulate job growth.

Senate rules require that any measure that increases spending or decreases revenue must be limited to ten years or less, or else the government has to show how we'll pay for it. That's why Bush set his tax breaks for the rich to expire in 10 yrs - so he wouldn't have to show how we'll pay for it. The Republicans cry "raising taxes", as though when a retail store ends a Sale, reverting back to the original price, the shoppers claim, "They're raising prices!" No, it's just the end of the Sale.

Bush's wars - not included in his budget! (The "war" in Iraq was supposed to pay for itself - we would be getting oil revenues. Well, oil didn't get any cheaper. And now I hear we're building schools and hospitals there. Sounds good, until you remember that Iraq sits on the third largest oil deposits on the planet. They do not need our help to rebuild.)

Remember the "Death Tax"? Republicans had everyone convinced that their estates would be taxed upon their death, robbing their children of their due. Did they mention that the tax would apply only to estates worth over one million dollars? Another break only for the rich.

Remember the "Death Panels", or, "Obama wants to kill your mother"? The measure allows people like my mother to use her insurance to speak with her doctor about her end-of-life choices (something that her insurance company would not pay for, claiming that such meetings with physicians was not necessary patient care).

The loss of government jobs that you mention, results in more unemployed (who are in turn unable to support local businesses, pay off debts, etc). In my city, four of our Superior Court departments are closing. A lot of people will be out of work. And it is estimated that it will now take five years to bring a case into civil court. Another means to help the rich (poor people have a harder time surviving while awaiting their turn in court).

When you need medical care do you pay for it out-of-pocket? I did not have insurance. When I became ill I could not affort to pay for a doctor's visit. My condition worsened until I was admitted to hospital with pneumonia. The taxpayers could have saved many $ had I been able to receive treatment before it became an emergency.

The first time I heard the provisions of ObamaCare, it was an idea voiced by the Governator himself, a Republican! San Francisco provides health insurance to the poor by way of a small tax added to meals. The system works well. Yes, it does add to the cost of dining out, but the cost to each of us is far less than using taxes to pay for the poor to use Emergency Depts.

I am quite bothered by the current vindictiveness expressed in inflamatory speech when discussing matters of state. It's the worst I've seen in my lifetime. I was the Denver Coordinator of Vietnam Vets Against the War during Nixon's reign. We hated Nixon, but preferred to attack him on his politics, rather than his personality, appearance, etc. We relied on the truth, rather than lying to people in order to sway them. And we never referred to him as a "gangster".

When Pelosi proved to be the most effective Speaker in the past 50 yrs she was attacked on her looks. I'm tired of the likes of Palin referring to "the lame stream media", (though I would have to agree if she were talking about Fox).
Pease explain what the "(n)" before Obama represents.

Let us not let this thread degenerate into flaming or name calling, please let us stick to the issues at hand.


Although the 1975 crises seems similar to the deadlock now freezing up the American system I would honestly say that what is happening now is far more serious.

You see, because all our western banks are intertwined, with various debt and loan swaps, cross ownerships and other monetary deals, an American default could have a devastating effect on all those ordinary people, like myself, who are pensioners, mortgage holders, small savers, etc. Billionaires and Millionaires can move their money, at the flick of a switch, to outside the affected areas, i.e. America and Europe.

The Australian economy is doing very well because your exports outweigh your imports and your banks, as far as I know, did not get involved in the madness (dodgy dealings) that swept Europe and American banks.

You never know, I may end up asking you to send me food parcels

Blackhorse 70 & Peerless

The Tea Party's lunacy is well known throughout the English speaking world and, like all loony organisations, they did not get their fame (well, infamy) by being reasonable.

I just want to say that democracy is about the ability to be reasonable and to compromise for the greater good, no country became or remained great by committing suicide.

You know, despite the currents problems America is still a great country that other countries look up to, it's a place that people run to not away from so don't let a bunch of loonies, backed by a corrupt right wing media, press the self-destruct button.

Health care system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Country comparison)

Medicare (Australia) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Healthcare in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Medicare (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Health care reform in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. Seems the Obamacare plan is considerably different to ours. The overall concept including prior arrangements is quite complex by the looks.

AFAIK in Australia everyone is covered by Medicare unless you fall over a particular financial income bracket. At the bottom end financial bracket here, some visits to doctors are free, some medicine may be reduced by over 70-90% in price. Hospital treatment might also be free.

That is for general public health treatment. If you wish to use private hospitals & doctors who do not off medicare rebates, then you are expected to use private health insurance. Advantage will usually be private rooms in hospital & probably shorter waiting times for surgery waiting lists. Some hospitals are private hospitals only. General hospitals are highly funded by state & federal governments. I believe hospitals work considerably differently in the USA.

"Australia: All legal permanent residents are entitled to government-paid public hospital care. Treatment by private doctors is also paid by the government when the doctor direct bills the Health Department (Bulk Billing). Medicare is funded partly by a 1.5% income tax levy (with exceptions for low-income earners), but mostly out of general revenue. An additional levy of 1% is imposed on high-income earners without private health insurance. There is an uncapped 30% subsidy on private health insurance. As well as Medicare, there is a separate Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme under which listing and a government subsidy is dependent on expert evaluation of the comparative cost-effectiveness of new pharmaceuticals. In 2005, Australia spent 8.8% of GDP on health care, or US$3,181 per capita. Of that, approximately 67% was government expenditure."

% of health costs paid by government (World Health Report 2000,):
Australia 67.7, Norway 83.6, UK 81.7, USA 45.4

I notice Norway has 80% more nurses per 1000 persons than countries like ours. lol
