Comment: Why would any healthy person do this? (Score 1) 644

The poor slobs now have to sell you health care EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN EXPENSIVE CONDITION

Now why, why would any more or less healthy person who is not expecting a baby sign up for health care? Pay the small fine, it's cheaper. Pay out-of-pocket for the one or two times you need to see a doctor or get a flu shot this year. It's still cheaper.

And if you find out that you have cancer, a heart condition, or (like myself) a chronic condition like ulcerative colitis which is going to require tens of thousands of dollars' worth of health care every year to manage... well, THEN sign up, and get the Gold option, and laugh at the clueless corporate fucks in the insurance industry who thought that getting into bed with the government and forcing everyone to buy their product, would actually result in moar profit...

I'm all for nuclear, I guess the part I don't get is why solar has no part. Maybe not from an industrial power grid scenario but I know two people who are supplying most (in one case all) of their home's power via solar. Are they doing something wrong? Is this hurting the chance for nuclear somehow?

> But because of people like yourself--who are too lazy to figure this out for yourself

Ok, did I miss a declaration of a douchbag contest? Did I accidentally click on youtube instead of facebook? Get over yourself and participate in the conversation like an adult, all I did was ask some questions I'm not out on the street marching against your views.

Interesting information, a bit overshadowed by unnecessary dickishness.

> Solar accounts for 0.17% of our electric production in this country, tripling it won't make any difference.

Is this counting only energy company production or people/companies reducing their consumption from the grid by augmenting it with solar? If so, how?

> The sooner environmentalists get off the solar kick and focus on reality, the sooner we can replace fossil fuels with something else. (Which in this case is nuclear, since it is the only option left)

There can be only one?

They added a feature. Despite the whiners, it's not taking anything away, and if someone doesn't like it, they don't have to use it.

I would like to see resale (or at least trading) of games, but this isn't a bad feature and certainly has its uses. Going on vacation or something? Let a friend play your stuff. Etc.
