3 ways insurers can still avoid covering the sick

[quote][b]sgdog1[/b] -

Universal single payor legislation would solve all the problems and assure all person are treated equally.

[/quote]

except for the ruling class, who will be treated more equally... Do you really want substandard health care for everyone? Little to no choices for the elderly? Have you always depended on someone else for your existence? You went to government schools right? Wink

Obama: US won't stop confronting Islamic State

[quote][b]franklingrady[/b] -

@tgb: That's not what I said. It has nothing to do with me "not liking" it. If you wanta criticize his speaking ability, go ahead. But objectively, Obama is a pretty well spoken person, pretty quick in his conversations, a smooth politician, knowledgeable about a wide variety of facts and history...

[/quote]

but is not a leader, unlike other Democratic presidents such as Clinton, which is the epitome of the qualification standard of this position. This...is why he is seen as a failure on the national and world stage Wink

As protests rage, Obama struggles to find his role

[quote][b]AbidingDude[/b] -

Again, Obama's biggest failing is his lack of experience at anything. The poor man is just over his head and doesn't know what to do. We have seem example after example of this.

Georgia education board holds Common Core hearing

[quote][b]edukator1[/b] -

So conservatives hate it simply because the federal government is involved. They have no criticisms of the actual common core content. That makes no sense.

[/quote]

...that is why there is no absolute solution unless the solution is home schooling or select private schools. Anything less is child abuse. Wink

@maxcat07:

The Iraq protests/protestors here in Athens were photographed.

[/quote]

not since Obama took office. It's mysteriously quiet at the arches now... as if there were no troops in Afghanistan or Iraq....nah, it;s that we have a Democratic president in office now, so he is immune to protest by the faux "war" protesters and he has noble reasons such as ratings and photo ops for continuing the wars.

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] -

@maxcat07:

The beatings taken by peaceful Wall Street Protesters show what "Authorities" are willing to do to keep the American people in line, off the streets protesting, and maintain the status quo.

[/quote]

you're referring to the "peaceful" Occupy protesters? peaceful as in raping and sexual assaulting women, theft, defecating on public property, assault and battery. etc... Perhaps their misogyny and other deviant behavior is brought out by evil capitalism. Maybe your definition of peaceful and mine differ perhaps? My definition excludes those descriptions above.

When a Democratic president is in office, it is "all good" right? "A means to an end" Wink Big smile

"Recreational mistakes"...that's a side-splittin' way to describe pregnancy.

[/quote]

...but accurate. Don't understand what action causes pregnancy? It's not by chance. It requires conscious choices. Google "Procreation" Wink

[quote][b]franklingrady[/b] -

You're a riot, Mein Galt!! I have a feeling you'd be a lot of fun to go and have a drink with...but then of course there are health consequences to drinking. Have you ever had a drink? Or taken any type of "recreational" drug? Or worked at a job that involved any type of stress? Or, say...driven a car faster than the prescribed speed limit? Or, you know...lived life in all its unpredictable glory?

[/quote]

All of these actions mentioned are products of free will and personal choice. Research the terms "Personal Responsibility" Wink

[quote][b]franklingrady[/b] -

Here's a question: do you have any form of insurance? Why? You're obviously a supporter of rugged individualism, and don't believe in any kind of pantywaist "Liberal" dependence on assistance from others. So if you're carrying any form of insurance, I'm gonna have to call you Hypocrite Meister.

[/quote]

are you really asking this on a public forum? Are you not afraid of being embarrassed by your ignorance?

Private insurance such as car insurance, health insurance, for example an employer, are free market commodities and purchases. It's a risk buy. If you never use your insurance, the insurance company profits. If you consume more of the insurance benefits than you pay in through premiums, then you win. Since when does paying for a product constitute an "assistance from others"? Understand the free market. Laughing out loud :D

Or would you be completely undisturbed if some Muslim or Hindu or Atheist busybody started bending your lifestyle to suit their whims? That would be okay with you? You wouldn't bat an eye, would you there, sweetie?

[/quote]

If I worked for a company that was managed by "Muslim or Hindu or Atheist busybody" (I actually work for an Atheist) and they did not want to pay for my recreational choices or any recreational choice such as condoms, the pill or any other product that is not detrimental to my health concerning my own personal decisions, I would not have a problem with it. I would actually applaud it. Sounds like it's time for you to grow up, accept responsibility for your actions (or inactions), quit blaming society, corporate America, "the man" or Bush for your status in life. Once you do this, perhaps doors will open up for you and possibly become a productive citizen. Don't give up! Let me know if can be of any more assistance. Wink Big smile

@nancy30683: It should be solely the choice of the woman whose body contains that egg. There's no other rational path. It's not your decision whether some other woman out there believes abortion is right or wrong, and not mine, and definitely not the government's or Hobby Lobby's.

[/quote]

Why should Hobby lobby subsidize their employee's recreational mistakes? Why not you and other UGA/ Academic government parasites create a private trust fund to exclusively fund the recreational sexual exploits of Hobby Lobby employees and their mistakes? Your certainly do not "need" all of the money that you earn do you? Why not create a law forcing you guys on the left to fund the recreational choices of the public? Are you greedy or something? How abhorrible of you! Let us know on an ABH public forum the name of the trust fund that you create to assist these victims of public recreational choice so that other like minded leftist dolts can contribute their wages to help the well paid Hobby Lobby victims/employees of free choice rid themselves of their conscious choice liabilities.

By the vacancy at the UGA Arch and other venues of protest that are absent of "anti-war protesters" during Obama's reign, we concluded that you lefties were only against wars that are active during Republican president tenures.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
