First fruit flies, someday humans.
Although don't we live too long as it is? Back when 50 was considered old did we have all these healthcare expenses.
People died now we spare no expense to keep people alive.
I'm not suggesting anything, just making an observation.
Is that why sonic is half gay...just in case?

No one,least of all Bernanke, foresees that the U S economic resurgence won't continue to the end of Obama's second term(if we don't do things differently to cause a train wreck for the economy)Alas, there are some who are hurtling towards the train track edges like mortgage realtors returning to their old practices of packaging subprime mortgages to people who can't afford to buy them in a growing housing market or Bank of American returning to their old deceptive loan advertising with hidden high penalty rates to suck customers in or rating industry giants like Moody's and S&P taking bribes again from Big Banks to give all-star ratings to poorly-packaged, rip-off derivatives trading 'deals'(primary cause of the 2007-08 financial meltdown) and republican Congressmen blocking the regulatory finance reforms of Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
No rational lending institution will make long-term loans at current interest rates without passing the risk to others.

It's precisely because the Democratic Senate didn't pass a budget for three years and rejected Obama's budgets unanimously that makes your anger less than potent.
Maybe if you spread it around more fairly...
Both Republicans and Democrats rejected his budgets, so he was probably on to something. And as I stated at the end of the day does it matter, we haven't stayed on budget since the Eisenhower administration. At least the Democrats were honest enough to say why even have a fckin' budget, we're never gonna keep to it.

I know this will be an absolute shock to you but insurance companies actually base their pricing on statistical analysis of various age groups. They do this now, really. No sh*t.
And they are profitable.
The insurance companies will now have more customers & more profits.
Those without insurance now use the medical facilities & often can not pay.
These 30 million newly insured will now use these facilities and pay with their insurance.
So explain why this will destroy private insurance companies. Explain why adding thee 30 million new customers will harm doctors & hospitals?
If those 30 million people suddenly found jobs w/ medical benefits, how would that be different?
Who is paying the premiums for those 30 million, most of whom have no insurance because they can't afford it?

Misstated the above cube ball example.
Should state you can have only two characteristics
I could add that 25 cubes are solid, 25 are hollow, 25 balls are solid and 25 are hollow,

Then the follow is true
half the contents are round
half are cubical
half are black
half are white,
half are solid
half are hollow.

But they can track where the phone has been, and more than likely connect it to you in that manner.

And perhaps those phones receive added scrutiny from the start.

it has to be more than 30 million-the state and local governments are laying people off and or firing them because they can't afford to pay the health care. I heard this was happening all over the place, but especially in Illinois.
