Since these insurance companies wouldn't insure millions of people at a reasonable price until the government forced the issue it eludes me how this is "crony capitalism". It's not as if the insurance companies were lobbying in favor of insuring poor people.
Actually, the insurance companies wrote much of the bill and are estatic about insuring anyone, especially when the government is paying them. Effective compeitition (a pubic option) or allowing medicaid to negotiate drug prices with the drug companies might have helped with cost control, but those were both nix'd extremely early in the process.
Yes, most things may not. Many things do. For example, I go and visit a small town only about an hour away from where I live. For much of the trip there and while in town I have either no data connection or one that measures at best in the 10s of KBs. How exactly am I going to play my music/audio books, in those areas if not with a native app? Pretty sure a website is going to be very much help.
The phrase "I live in the US" would have been a fine substitute for your example. Even if it's not true, it makes it much clearer. You can use that phrase and "crappy broadband" more or less interchangably.
Ideally, the bulbs would start warm first thing in the morning, switch to cool gradually over the next half hour and then transition back to warm in the evening.
Ideally, bulbs would produce exactly the same spectrum as sunlight from the time you flick the switch "on" until you switch it "off". CFLs come close. LEDs have a little more of a challenge and tend towards the blue, unless they are attempting historical reconstruction in which case they tend to be yellow.
Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
