You've been misled to the point of frustration and confusion.

But please don't take it out on me or anyone else. This kind of character flaw is by choice and of your own doing.

You, sir, are making an ass out of yourself by attempting to bluff your way through this.

What you know about cattle and ranching could fit in a thimble. Your above statement makes this abundantly obvious.

On a more positive note, melanomas can be completely excised and removed and lymph node biopsies are common and often benign with or without skin cancer and just a precaution. Just thought I'd mention that. For what it's worth.

Scapegoats:

Stalin blamed the Bolsheviks and sent them to the gulag.
Pol Pot blamed the shopkeepers and suffocated them.

Funny...

I keep asking for reich wingers to show historical proof that conservative worked over history.

Not a single, coherent, factual response yet.

I wonder why?

Copays, yes. Deductibles, no. Paying the deductible up front was the patient's choice. Otherwise, deductibles were added to the balance after the insurance paid the rest. Monthly payments could be made until the balance was paid off.
Not anymore. Never before were we told the deductible had to be paid first before receiving medical treatment. Until three weeks after ObamaCare kicked in. Don't think it was just a coincidence.
What happens when people don't have thousands of dollars to pay up front?
It's amazing what you dream up all by yourself son.

Californians got screwed Enron 'stepped in' to cover their power deficit.

Then Enron decided to screw stock holders along with Arthur Anderson.

Speaking of Enron, how about a get out of jail free card?

Ex-Enron CEO Jeff Skilling to leave prison early


(MoneyWatch) He can walk early, but not that early. Former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling succeeded in getting his prison sentence reduced by 10 years as part of a court-ordered reduction.

U.S. District Judge Sim Lake of the Southern District of Texas announced at a hearing in Houston today that Skilling will serve 14 years. His original conviction called for him to serve 24 years in connection with the collapse of the once high-flying energy trading firm. Under the agreement with federal prosecutors, Skilling could be released as early as 2017.

In seeking to reduce the sentence, the government had emphasized that $40 million in restitution, currently held up as Skilling pursued appeals, would be released to victims.

"The sentence handed down today ends years of litigation, imposes significant punishment upon the defendant and precludes him from ever challenging his conviction or sentence," Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman said in a statement after the re-sentencing hearing. "With today's court action, victims of Skilling's crimes will finally receive more than $40 million that he owes them."

Sherron Watkins, who as a vice president at Enron first called attention to the energy trading company's accounting problems, sounded a mixed note about the former CEO. "He's paid a steep price," she said, noting that Skilling's father and son both died during his incarceration and that he was unable to attend their funerals.

Watkins went on to note that Skilling is in a stronger financial position than many other convicts. While it's not clear just how much he's worth, Watkins said he still has enough of the money he made during and even after his tenure at Enron to keep fighting his conviction. "He continues to have the wherewithal to appeal and appeal and appeal," she said. "That's why he is getting his day in court today. No lawyer wants to keep fighting someone else's case."..."
