Exactly how will the ACA put private insurers out of business? Don't you know that it is private insurers that are selling the plans under the ACA? Below is some text from an article that explains how you sign up. Read and learn (if only you could).

"The websites are designed to work like popular do-your-own-taxes software. They ask questions about income and family size and, based on the answers, lead a person through more questions until finally offering specific insurance options and prices.

Purchasers will select individual or family coverage sold by a private insurer. The exchange will calculate each person's premium based on the insurer's rate, offset by whatever federal subsidies the buyer is eligible to receive. The subsidy payments will be made directly to the insurer, and the consumer will be billed for the difference."

It's not. If an employer offers it, great. But they don't HAVE to. People can get their own insurance, there are many plans available. All Obamacare is gonna do is put them out of business.

<quoted text>When you say "put", do you mean "move" or "copy"? Unless you have multiple copies, you're just as vulnerable to losing yhem as if they were only on the internal drive. Hardware fails. I've had both internal and external drives go belly up ( not at the same time thankfully)
Isn't it a good idea to also put pics on a micro card or flash drive? I feel more secure with that.

I have over 85gb of music, 45gb of music, 45gb of home video. Flash drives are not gonna be much use to me.

The main thing is to have multiple copies so that if something happens to one, you have a backup. Flash drive, external drive, online, wherever. You use whatever fits your need.

I take extra precautions.
If my computer hard drive dies, I go to my external drive backup. But if my house burns down, its all gone, so I have several online storage accounts(drop box, sky drive, google drive) and have all the important stuff backed up in the cloud too.

Red, I just now read your medical post. I'm pulling for you and hope that all will be well.
One great feature of growing up in the Midwest, was the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota....that place really helped my grandmother, back when i was like 11....she had cobalt treatments there and lived another 36 years....

2 gigs is a joke. Some of these companies prey on folks ... they throw in a fast processor so people think they are getting a beast of a machine, but then completely ruin it by throwing in only 2 GB of RAM. RAM is so cheap ... there is really no need to go that low and if folks knew the consequences they'd spring for the extra RAM.
Yeah 2 gigs IS a joke. I insist on 8. Apparently she's taking it back tomorrow and getting something better.

I'm calling it Obamacare. Obama is proud of it and WANTS his name attached to it. And when it fails, or bankrupts the country, whichever comes first, and it WILL, Obama will have his name attached to it forever.
Yup still a clueless freaking idiot.

America has the best healthcare system in the WORLD! Why do you think Mexicans flock here? Why do you think Canadians flock here? Why do you think most doctors here are foreigners? All Obamacare is gonna do is DECREASE healthcare for Americans.
Time will tell. The negative effects will take a while to show. We'll see who's right, but I wouldn't break out the champagne just yet.
You're stupid.

Toni Preckwinkle is the President of the Cook County Board, as staunch a Democrat as you will find. She is a no nonsense tough cookie who had been a school principal. I had the opportunity to hear her speak and respond to a business oriented audience. She turned the word Obamacare from a pejorative to praise.

Are you still grouching about the income tax? The New Deal? The Voting Rights Act?

Pellen,
I'm so mad I could spit nails.
They've got until sundown tomorrow to iron out their differences. That is when my patience will end. Sundown tomorrow.....
I'd be happy to take them all for a ride.

Seriously though, the United States needs some massive public works projects to help get back up on its feet again.
The US is lagging desperately behind in development of high speed rail.
I sometimes watch through binoculars the airlines that approach O'Hare Field, you know, from my yard.
A lot of those are American Eagles, which are short hops from smaller nearby cities.
I'm just sayin', this can't go on forever and there needs to be viable alternatives to air travel.
The sooner, the better.

I don't need to prove it. You do all the work of proving it for me every time you say anything.

You know, I'm no financial manipulator, but October is a notoriously bad month for the stock market, which is all on paper, artificially inflated and can easily all come tumbling down.
I didn't put America in the mess it is in.
I was too busy working every day.

Figured it wouldn't be long before some liberal blamed the implementation of Obamacare on this incident. Thanks for filling the part!
