Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not…Continue
"ACA says that Americans must have health insurance. I think you're smart enough to realize that "universal healthcare" is here to stay in the US.
Currently, you can buy insurance in your home state, and largely no where else. You say…"
"Honestly man, I got better "care" from German doctors that I was sent to when I was stationed there, than I ever have from US docs.
And Nokia is still one of the "leaders" in tech and communication industries. They…"

I'm not asking to create a carbon-copy of these places. I'm suggesting we do what Americans do…"
"Thirty some hours of "investigations" is probably more like 2 hours of "investigations" and 28 hours of video editing.
And yes, Federal Law does prohibit the selling of fetal tissue, for profit... It's also illegal to…"
ACA is terrible, we all know of better systems in which people can get healthcare that are legitimately cheaper (see: Swiss and German models). And frankly, because people have now seen that "golden apple" of universal…"
"There is honest to make-believe-god NO republican candidate who has a snowballs chance in hell of beating a Democrat presidential nominee, again. Seriously, every single current candidate has some major mark against them that means they will not…"

"That would be ideal. Somewhere along the line we seem to have lost respect for one another, and the desire to find a common ground. Nothing works when people won't find a common thread with which to build from..."
I was thinking about how with a change in perspective and the tone of language we used to describe something, we can easily make many day to day things into warped horror movie premises. Examples:When we eat meat and seafood, we are eating corpses. The terms meat and seafood basically exist because saying that we are eating corpses or flesh is really unpleasant sounding.
