Interesting story on U.S. Healthcare

As one of those un-insured this makes my blood boil, especially when that Hunter bitch tries to sugar coat the industry position.

Part II

Part III

All this comes from a discussion thread about the California Nurses Association publishing a study that indicated expanding medicare could cover every single person in the U.S. and cost comparatively little.

You’ve heard me say this before, we need to knock down the insurance and billing companies first. They are the prime obstacle to having single payer, or universal, or what have you.

Profit and greed should NEVER, EVER override health.

1. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?

It’s been so long that I honestly cannot remember. With the advent of Netflix, net video, etc. I’ve honestly not stepped into a theater in many years. I think the last time I was in one it was $10 per ticket if that gives any indication. Totally forgettable movie too.

I guess if they really want to get me into a theater they’d stop re-hashing old movies. You can’t tell me there isn’t a good idea left in Hollywood. E.g. Stranger in a Strange Land. That would be a rockin’ good movie if it followed the book at all.

2. What is your favorite movie theater snack?

Popcorn but again even that is mass produced crap now. I’m often of the opinion that it isn’t the lawyers we ought to put up against the wall, it’s the MBA’s.

3. Have you ever snuck in ‘outside’ food into a theater?

Not so much snuck. I’ve carried 500ml bottles of drinks in and nobody has said a word. That’s the key to getting away with breaking a ‘rule’. Act as though you know you have the right to do what you’re doing.

4. Have you ever made out in a theater?

Who hasn’t? I’m sort of discrete about it of course but if you’re making out you obviously aren’t there to see the movie.

5. What is the ‘farthest’ you have gone in a theater?

All the way down to the front row.

Bonus (as in optional): What is one of your favorite movie sex scene?

Are we talking everyday movies or porn? I find very few sex scenes notable in the former.

This had to be one of the lamer TMI’s.

Not just the oath!

This is a great sum up of Bush 43, well, missing a few things though the shredded Constitution is sitting on the desk.

From Bush to Obama
From Bush to Obama

I won’t enumerate the abuses by the Bush administration though. There are plenty of other sites out there doing this.

The relief though is overwhelming. I’ve been particularly encouraged by the actions and words of President Obama over the past week. Many of his actions have been dismantling the abuses perpetrated by Bush and to me that is a very good start.

Applause, support and encouragement are also due for Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. He’s really digging in to go after Bush and Co.


Came across this little video. Nice parody of the religious rights views on gay people.

Thought you’d all enjoy it but one warning, it doesn’t work in Firefox, works in IE though. As to other browsers, since I haven’t located a flash player for my iPod yet I can’t say if it works in Safari.

I’m checking out other vids on DoorQ right now. Should be interesting.

And special, Inspector Hieronymus and the Mischievous Houseboy.

A show I stumbled upon

I was reading about pulling all episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. on FX. The series was created by cutie Rob McElhenney who plays Mac on the show, and Charlie Day who plays of course Charlie on the show.

I remember seeing a trailer for it a long time ago and thought it looked like it could be funny. I wasn’t wrong.

You can watch the entire series on here until the 25th of January.

What is interesting is all the gay references in the film, stuff like teabagging, cream on the guys face, etc. It definitely plays with the edge.

Each episode is only about 20 minutes long but in that 20 minutes you’re bound to have one good gut busting laugh.

It’s really funny.

1. Have you ever dated/married purely for money?

Not at all. I’m bright enough to make my own way thank you.

2. What is your type?

Cute with some meat on the bone. Skinny little twinks never did a thing for me. I need someone who doesn’t mind getting a little rough.

3. What is the best sex game you have ever played?

Never really recall having played a sex game. Does that make me odd?

4. Have you ever given or received an orgasm from a person whose last name you did not know?

Yes and no. I’m a pretty good investigator. I can pretty much have their full birth name, DOB, SSN, credit report etc. in record time. But sometimes I just didn’t bother to go through the whole process.

5. Have you ever masturbated in front of a sexual partner?

Yes I have. And it was mutual. And back in the day I could do target practice with ejaculation. Seriously, lots of it and long distance.

Bonus (as in optional):At what age do you think men and women reach their sexual peak? Do you think you have hit yours yet?

It’s said men reach their peak at 19, I say that’s bullshit. Men start reaching their peak at around 25, and then start losing it at about 60.

Ditto for women.

Of course after 60 I have no idea what goes on and I’m 16 years out from that age. Yikes!
