Comment: ObamaCare (Score 2, Insightful) 1530

by Elwar123 (#34111652) Attached to: 2010 Election Results Are In
A lot of people were voting against ObamaCare this time around. But considering it took 60 votes in the Senate to get it passed, you would need 60 votes in the Senate to end it, plus getting past an Obama veto. Any propaganda you read about Republicans working to repeal ObamaCare is all hype. It can't be done unless they gain 12 seats in the Senate and take over the presidency in 2012. Until then, enjoy your premium increases.

Coming in May there will be a Boxee Box for about $200 that streams content via wireless or wired connection with several output options for your TV. Quite the cool setup with a remote that has a keyboard like a slider phone. I hope it lives up to the hype. I'll definitely be getting one.

I have the Palm Pre and I usually play the games while in the bathroom. The major games I play are solitaire, checkers and chess. The checkers and chess kinda suck because the computer is far too easy to beat (sacrificing bishop to take out pawns, missing opportunities to check mate me, etc.) I tend to kill off my queen in my first few moves to make it more challenging. Other than that there are some multi-player/build your guy up type of games that I occassionally keep up with.
