[quote][b]Duke Briscoe[/b] - Also, is your political position to abolish the socialist Medicare program?[/quote]
Medicare is paid for by each individual out of every paycheck they earn. Plus, a payment to medicare is deducted from social security benefits.posted @ Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 09:53

Oh, but you're wrong! When the insurance companies go into the "death spiral" because of Obamacare, the federal government will tax us to compensate them.
And, just as a matter of clarification, I prefaced my original comment as pertaining to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.posted @ Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 09:49
[quote][b]Duke Briscoe[/b] - So your position is that people who cannot pay for health care should just suffer and/or die? I suggest you get a bumper sticker to show your support for that view.[/quote]
No, that is NOT my position, and your arrogance is noted. My position is that it is NOT within the Constitutional purview of the federal government to sell insurance, and force people to purchase it, and charging the taxpayer for the short fall.
Obamacare is a total disaster and Obama is a socialist. The sooner he's out of office, the sooner legislators with Constitutional commitment can begin to repair the damage done by Obama and his fellow socialists.
If YOU think that Obamacare is the solution to healthcare problems in this country, you're being very dishonest.posted @ Monday, March 24, 2014 - 14:00
[quote][b]seagra[/b] - I have wonderful news. A dear friend from NC now has Obamacare for $92 a month with a $1000 deductible and a $200 prescription deductible. Her copays are: $5 for her family doctor and $10 for a specialist. She had tried in January and thought she would not be able to get on the exchange because her husband has insurance throught his employer. But I told her to call back. She did, and got a completely different result! Because their income was around $28,000 a year, they got big subsidies to lower the cost. If you have tried earlier, try again today! It won't hurt and may help you get affordable coverage. The plans she got was a BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD SILVER PLAN!
Nancy Seagraves, tell me why it's fair that I and others who don't know your "dear friend" have to chip in and pay for her insurance coverage?posted @ Monday, March 24, 2014 - 09:14

No matter what the rules you can count on some things being carved in stone:
1) Smokers will continue to smoke on campus, in cars, etc
2) Sanford Stadium will always be filled or near-filled with smokers and non-smokers alike.
Enforcing no smoking laws on campuses is a joke.
I quit smoking 20 years ago and don't condone it. But, laws will not force addicted smokers to NOT smoke. They MUST smoke because they're addicted.posted @ Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 07:31
That intersection is VERY dangerous because of the angle of the cross roads. I often times have seen near misses while waiting to turn there. Best wishes to the injured student & family.posted @ Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 07:17
You need a different clientele. You're getting a bad reputation around town.

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
