I cannot say that I've ever heard of a drink called Chocolate Soldier, but I certainly googled it. Turns out, you might be able to find it at Big Lots, priced at around $1.50 per six pack. http://goo.gl/qyq8W

Now, I'll be the first to admit that shelf-stable chocolate "drink" that may or may not contain dairy is something I'd usually consider repulsive. But there is a childhood nostalgia factor that Yoo-Hoo holds for me and as a result, I sometimes end up with a couple bottles in my shopping cart. There's probably a reason I tend to drink a whole bottle at once. Just don't forget to shake... you'll regret it.

A guy I knew back in college even invented a Yoo-Hoo based cocktail that was Yoo-Hoo and vodka, and tasted about as gross as you'd expect (especially with bottom shelf college vodka. Fleischmann's anyone?)

This discussion also reminds me of another childhood favorite, the egg cream. I make these at home, but I don't think they taste right without using one of those old timey seltzer dispensers. It's milk and seltzer stirred vigorously to create a foamy head, then mixed with chocolate syrup. Of course, the only chocolate syrup that can be used for this is Fox's U-Bet, which is the only chocolate syrup I use for anything (you don't know what you're missing if you use that Hershey's and Quik nonsense).

Strangely, it's available at Giant in the Jewish section. Oy vey!

This is too true to be funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

A.
A billion seconds ago it was 1981.

B.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

D.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

E.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain...
let's take a look at New Orleans ...
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) was asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans.

Interesting number...
What does it mean?

A.
Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman and child) You each get $516,528

B.
Or... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.

C.
Or... If you are a family of four...Your family gets$2,066,012.

First - Newsmax is your source, so ...

Second, this kind of analysis is what you get when you rely on dishonest rightwing hacks to do your analysis for you.

Guaranteed issue is more than balanced by the individual mandate. Insurance companies are going to get tens of millions of new customers. Those additional premiums will more than offset any additional costs from guaranteed issue.

If insurance companies jack up rates the only reason will be dishonest opportunism and greed.

Therefore ... politicians are evil!

Newsmax is not my only source. I don't live in a bubble.

Premiums are rising everywhere. This I know as fact, not just from news sources, but from those who have insurance and those employed with the insurance business.

You speak of guarantees by the government, government guarantees are worthless and anyone who has common sense knows this. You're trapped in your self-made bubble when you blame everything on a republican or those with conservative views.

Insurance companies have to make a set profit like any business. Obama care is not good for America the way it's set up.

If Obama care is so good then you tell me why unions, businesses and government servants are exempt? If Obama care was forced on all, cost would not be as high as it will be. It's bad enough we are forced to pay for those who refuse to work, now we will be paying for those who are illegally in America. I'll add this then leave, we are also forced to pay the share of cost from those who Obama exempted.
