You got that right, about the resident Idiot.
"It happened to me. I had to change the doc I saw for two decades"
Maybe he just retired?
LOL at myself, after "two decades" you meant he was gone not because of health care reform I take it?
Because of the rising cost of health care, my employer changed policies. My doctor did not participate in the HMO, so I had to find a new doctor. The direct result of Obamacare? I don't know, but after the same coverage for so long.....

This is why trial lawyers love state legislators. Oklahoma just like its goofy neighbor Ark. passing unconstitutional laws that are going to be struck down in court.

The only thing they accomplished is making trial lawyers rich at tax payers expense.

Both have a Republican majority state legislature.

Those are some of the biggest goof balls in this country, it obviously doesn't take much brain to do what they do. You say I kill the messenger yet you have attacked every other job, any job you have never done you label as a job a parasite does. You farm, you ranch, big deal. I farm and ranch also, it doesn't take a genius to do that either. You once spoke of how proud you were to not take any SS from the government and here just recently you talk about taking SS from the government. Seems to me you can't make up your mind just what kind of parasite you really are!
No not everyone could be a truck driver. many folks have no buisness driving a car. And lots of folks couldnt ever farm it takes skill know how & experience to raise livestock & grow crops successfully & make a profit. All I ever stated was I hadnt bothered to start drawing Social security yet. Im making more money than ever why start drawing now and the self employment tax I pay wouldnt be added to my account? I fully intend to at least recoup what I have paid into the social security fund. This afternoon I slaughtered a 175 pound pig. I just ate supper baked potato, green beans, and pork tenderloin steaks fresh killed & cooked & never refrigerated. plus Im still drinking on a quart of home brew beer.All grown and processed by us. No middlemen no goverment involvement and no parasites got to rob us on any protion of ot. you gotta be a idiot to believe reality shows like ice road truckers are anything like the real thing. they do a lot of those fuck ups on purpose so as to make the show exciting. its on purpose for dramatization.

Arkansas has a democrat govenor and 90 % of the legislature is democrat. Arkansas has elected only three republican govenors since reconstruction. Winthrop Rockefeller- Frank White and Mike Huckabee. The republican,s have never since reconstruction held more then a few seats in the state legislature.

From the outside looking in it appears it was a decision based on cost and a good salesperson. Obviously not being there that is simply speculation on my part.

I would bet it was not the direct result of the Health Care Reform law.

Theoretically if Health care reform works as designed private insurance company rates should fall in line with the HMO's rates which have lower rates.

It seems to be working, look at Florida:

The health care law generally requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 percent of premiums on actual medical care and no more than 20 percent on administrative costs. Companies that don't meet this 80/20 standard must give the difference back to their policyholders as a rebate.

Florida residents insured as part of a small group by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida will receive, on average, a refund of $209, because the company's medical spending figure for that category was 77.3 percent. Illinois residents with large group coverage from Humana Health Plan will get no rebate, because that company had a figure of 87.2 percent for large group coverage.


Humana Health Plan , does that name ring a bell?

Maybe you were agreeing with the last part of Churms post. This part, I do not agree with. I don't think the enforcement officers are a failure. It's the ones higher above them. Look at what happens when the officers try to do their job. Do the names Ramos Compean sound familiar? The government makes it impossible for these poor guys to do their jobs without severe backlash. I always said if I was a border patrol officer, I would sit on the border with my binoculars watching the birds.

Do you have a problem with adult humans deciding for themselves what substances they put in their own bodies as long as they don't hurt others? People have used mind-altering substances since the beginning of time..... and they always will use them...... regardless of laws we make against it. I'm sure you have family and friends that have gotten high. Why do you wish death on them for it?

Actually Ive been seriously thinking about going back to school next year after I start drawing social security. college tuition is free to arkansans past 60 years of age. Any how Ive got my airplane pilots license. Im certified to fly a plane with full instrumentation. However I dont own a airplane yet. The maintaince on a airplane must be performed by a certified mecahnic with a AP license. Im part owner of a dirt landing strip that has a couple of those metal square post buildings for airplane hangars. One of the parteners has a old cessna there. I can fly it whenever I want. I just gotta pay the owner $100 per hour. There is a Votech school about a 100 miles away that offers a AP mechanic course. The planes owner and I are mulling over both of us taking the class and flying his airlane to the local airport near the school. Almost all airports have a courtisy car or two available for pilots to borrow. We could driveit the sort distance to school .or simply leave a personal vehicle at the airport. If we got a AP mechanic licence we could buy planes that need work and the annual has expired fix them up and fly them until they are resold.

Correction, Oklahoma has passed laws that DEFEND the Constitution, as they should. I have decided that will be my next vacation destination. And while there, I will make sure all the locals know why I'm visiting.

You are correct about the Gov. of Ark., however you are completely wrong about the state legislature both house have a Republican majority, the first since reconstruction.

We outta just shit can the whole shebang. Stop the collosoll waste of money. Then use some of that money to go after those who are working illegals, Catch them gather the evidence and let the courts and IRS romp on those law breaking employeers with both feet. sieze all their assetts turn them into paupers jail them and make a example of them. Very soon no one would dare work illegals. No jobs and those illegals would deport themselves.

I like eastern oklahoma near the NW arkansas border really well. I spent considerable time in that area. I frequented the Elkhorn tavern on HWY 59 when Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn fame preformed there back in the day. We all knew that he was destined to be a famious country western star.

<quoted text> Actually the rail road is parasitic. Almost Everything loaded hauled and unloaded in a train mudt be hauler to the train in a truck at some points. The exception are coal and a few other things. If not for being subsized by the goverment the Railroads would be bankrupt. Am Trak is a giant waste of taxpayer dollars. I drove truck off and on for 40 years drove about two million miles. I put over 500,000 on one truck in 3&1/2 years. In 40 years I never had any accidents involving any other vehicle. The only accidents where deer that I hit. I hit so many deer I lost count. We put a cowcatcher bumper on the truck. I could hit a deer and just keep on going without any damage. There isnt anything wrong with you not liking semi trucks or truck drivers thats ok its your choice. But even if their fat obese lewd crude degenerate uncoulth ect. ect. thay are not goverment funded parasites . The ugly ones and the pretty ones are all a link in the chain of production.
You dum arse, the government subsidize my salary $121,000 with your truck driving dollars. Thanks friend. Your Bankrupt statement would explain why you were a dumb truck driver. Union Pacific is a Fortune 200 company. Wake up chummy you fat ugly obese lewd crude degenerate railroad wannabe.
