[quote][b]GetOffThis[/b] - I'm totally with you, Tina. I have family members hoping Obamacare offers them the chance to get affordable healthcare, otherwise they'll do without. They don't have $1000 a month for insurance.
Key word "hoping". Before this was ever passed the "hope" should have been removed and replaced with certainty.posted @ Tuesday, October 8, 2013 - 05:43

Of course there are- I've never denied that. On the other hand, do you think being consumed with the fear that someone might get something they didn't "earn" warrants denying care to those who need it and can't afford it? [/quote]

Despite this, you still get uncollectable debts. A lot of them. [/quote]
Which happens in any business. Unlike other business's health care providers are forced to provide services to known dead beats who have no intention of paying.
Now before you go off on the "help the less fortunate" those are already helped through Medicare, Medicaid, Peachcare etc... Despite your beliefs there are those who are just to effing lazy to work for a living or try to do better in life and live off the system.posted @ Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 05:43
[quote][b]cyou299[/b] - if a person choose 'their choice' to not carry insurance....if they need it and don't have it...they go to the emergency room and get treated anyway...and taxpayers pay.
'Your choice'? Your choice? Really? It's a personal choice to not carry insurance and soak the taxpayers if needed?
Sounds like an incredibly self-centered universe you live in. [/quote]

Supervisors at government agencies began meetings Thursday to decide which employees would continue to report to work and which would be considered nonessential and told to stay home under contingency plans ordered by the Office of Management and Budget.
How is it they can find "nonessential" employees when this crap starts but can't find them on a regular day? Maybe they should look a little harder at who's actually working and run the do nothings off. That'd help our debt situation.posted @ Friday, September 27, 2013 - 13:19

"The BoE justifies these reduced polling locations citing an uptick in early voting along with the addition of two early voting areas at Police Stations on Lexington Highway and at the Mall--hardly a welcoming environment for many. Anyone who’s had a brush with the law in the past is certain to be reluctant to exercise their democratic duty if it means a visit to a police station. In our inequitable society, it is no secret that the poor & minorities have higher incarceration rates —in addition to despicable practices such as racial profiling, the challenges of poverty greatly increase one’s chances of being arrested and convicted"
Are we really going here? I mean seriously if someone has a warrant Link and her ill want to make sure that person can move around without fear of incarceration?
Let's keep in mind that while Link is so worried about criminals making it to the polls she has no problem with elderly people having to take multiple buses to buy groceries.posted @ Friday, September 27, 2013 - 08:02
This is horrible. The road in that area is covered in dirt from the dump trucks coming out of the back of rock quarry going to the new airport expansion. If it weren't an ACC job the county would have been all over them about dirt in the road. It's highly likely his windshield was covered in muck with the rain.

Glad you know so much about this animal's needs and habits, but why would you or they want to maintain a wild animal so far away from it's natural home? Because it's large? Because you can show it off to others and feel special? Is it endangered? Why? At least you and they are making a serious effort to care for these three unfortunate animals (not serious enough to keep Zip contained, though). I would prefer they all be taken back to the Sahara to be with their own kind in their own home.
I would prefer for you to be back with your own kind...which planet is it you're from?posted @ Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 18:12
