Havn’t been online much since the weather turned nice…. I just got back from helping my former LIBERAL neighbor pick out a shiny new Glock 20... Helped another old woman clean up some trees that fell in her yard.... so keep spankin the monkey.... we're still here.
In other news... moveon.org had a whopping 18,617 visits yesterday.... here... as we're "closing up" only a mere 86,702 visits... Go play with your monkey now.... pet it nice.... and don't forget to take turns with your other progressive buddies.
The only solution is to allow the pain of failure. You will never learn to avoid smashing your thumb with a hammer if it does not hurt. Financial pain is no different.... We have removed all pain from the system through the expectation of employer paid or government paid insurance. We've all been numbed out on morphine, smashing our thumbs bloody with a hammer... and just woke up to see that it hurts when the drug wears off.
(So do we need more drugs, or just stop hitting our thumb?)
You fail to realize, or simply don't know the typical cost is $300-$500 if you have your dentist do it. Most folks would shop around and get a good deal, or be willing to pay more up front for a doctor that they prefer. Only someone who has "insurance" will not care that a service is grossly over charged.
The proven flip side is that folks will actually BRUSH and maintain a healthy mouth when it actually costs them money to fix neglect. Result is that they don't purchase an overpriced insurance plan because it SAVES THEM MONEY! As a result of lower payouts, insurance companies will lower premium costs, overtime the cost of insurance can decrease to affordable rates. That can never happen with abuse of the system and the absence of responsibility that we see with subsidized programs.
In case you missed it, again.... 2,000,000,000,000 (2 trillion) in cuts will not occur without something or someone being cut. Yup... and most of it is a direct result of government involvement on how the system has to be run.
The only thing needed to be cut from health care is federal government! We don't need a "deal" to be made, because that same deal won't be allowed to fail... opening the door for federal government to "Come to the rescue"....
Bottom Line… Take back your state… proudly fly your state flag… Tell the Feds to F--- off and let you live your life.
We are now almost in the same situation.... at the brink of Republic ----> Empire. Except for us, the colloseum has been placed right in our living room. TV drowns out our cares and concerns, Sports figures on steroids replaced our real heroes, and we are now awakening just in time to see the precipice our decisions have led us to. My house has disconnected the cable *I miss Glenn’s TV show now*, but we’ve had time to think, learn, and solidify our principles and values. Saved $60 a month too…. Now is the time to engage. Hit the freakin NO3 button!
