there are certain truths that many ppl just do not seem to ever get, like the fact that ppl's lives and health should not be used for profit. one day everyone WILL get it, prolly about the same time we see world peace. or maybe when we can settle on other planets or transport instantly like on star trek. until ppl get that life and health are not for profit, we will have same problems no matter what system is in place.
And in the meantime, thank god for wives with good insurance plans!!

Your point was that the penalty is toothless? No one has ever denied that.

Maybe a good workmans comp settlement will do the trick??? Could at least allow for some hairclub for men treatments.

Agreed.  Survival of the fittest.    The animal kingdom has it right.   

Can't keep up with the herd?  Well, fall behind and get eaten by a lion.

Tea Party congressman are sad, so the government will continue to be shut down.

“We’re not going to be disrespected,” said Congressman Stutzman during an interview with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.  “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

Both sides are dipshits.    Obama has publicly said "I'm not negotiating."    So, of course, the other dipshit side is going to say "We want something." 

Shut the government down.   Good.

Troll hard.

The shutdown is bad for the economy. It's a good thing you aren't a business owner.

-- Furloughs. The shutdown's direct effect on the economy comes from the federal government's lost work-hours. Right now, about 800,000 of the 4.1 million federal workers have been sent home. These "non-essential" worker furloughs will reduce fourth quarter GDP by about 0.15 to 0.2 percentage points for every week the shutdown lasts, according to Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs economists. The economy should bounce back an equal amount the following quarter, but, as Macroeconomic Advisers points out, that partly depends on whether furloughed workers get back pay. That's what happened after the 1995 and 1996 shutdowns, but it's something Congress has to approve. And, well, House Republicans might not be so enthusiastic about retroactively paying federal workers for not working this time around. In that case, the shutdown's modest drag on overall household spending would persist a bit.

Good point.  Except I've been a small business owner since '97.


Sometimes change requires a little pain.    For the American public to wake up and stop voting in the same people over and over, we need a lot of pain.

I think the same can be said for finger pointing and avoiding blame.
