This is hilarious and sad... da,n near everything you buy has a CEO who is against your interest. You are free to dislike Obama but this is a reach.
I'm allergic to bees so I'm not going to follow the Steelers as long as they continue to wear those throw back uniforms that look like insects...
Ps. Not really allergic...
I'll take big business over big government any day dizz...
if you were allergic, I was just gonna tell you to take some Benadryl and sleep through the games, because you haven't been missing much lately lol

That's ALOT of hate to carry around for a president where you would disown the Steelers. I think you would rather be right than be happy, and watch the Steelers.
And BTW, Obama didn't write ACA. A conservative think tank did. But obviously it's partisan politics and hate for the president that trumps and rational discourse. I just don't get it with leaving the Steelers. I think you are pissed (and you have a right to be). You will always be a Steeler fan
Heck yeah I'm pissed. Many people have worked but not many for free. I could handle it a little better if those fat cats on capital hill were going without a pay check like the rest of us.
Best reply in the thread. Use sports as an escape from politics. What does Rooney's political view on anything have to do with Steeler football?

But we tend to have had those choices made for us at the most part at birth. Steelers fan by blood. Obama hater by blood. It's not much different.

They're all a bunch of clowns. Good ideas get screwed up. Good intentions get redirected. But the problem is no one really covers politics open and honestly. It's all an obfuscated mess that no one can understand. But because of our insane levels of individual and national pride in the US, we can't admit we don't know a thing. We like to pretend we're educated because we listen to a lot of 30 second sound bites that are no different than commercials that tell us to drink more Coke.
Anger is always kinda funny. Anger is always misdirected. When we are angry we don't think logically. Not that we ever think logically anytime any way. This country needs a modern 'All in the Family' type of sitcom.
wouldnt a political board be a more appropriate place for this stuff
The House Republicans wouldn't pass a budget or agree to fund the spending/bills they passed. People out of work would be without helath insurance of any kind w/o Obamacare. These are facts, but I don't see what it has to do w/ liking the Steelers.
I read a lot of history, all this hysterical hyperbole seems exactly like what the country went through when Medicare was being started. Now it's such a part of the fabric of our country that the same people who are losing it over Obamacare are the ones who hold up signs, "Get your government hands off my Medicare".
Agree w/ whoever posted above that listening only to people that tell you what you want to hear, and who agree w/ you, doesn't count as fulfilling our civic duty to be educated citizens.
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
