Before Obamacare, the private insurance plans in my state were better. You could buy a proper insurance plan on the open market. Now those types of plans are gone. Can't buy them at any price.

That means that the best facilities are out of your reach if you're on Obamacare and have cancer.

I've actually had to go BACK to being on an employer provided plan because of Obamacare.

I don't know anyone like this and most of my family are the sorts of people that white knights like you claim to champion.

I'm not sure this mythical "obamacare beneificiary" even exists. Are you capable of describing what such a person should look like?

How about the opportunity to spend your money on more immediate necessities rather insane insurance premiums.

Remember, Obamacare only gives you the "privelege" of paying a lot for something you may never need.

If you are normal person hysterically fixated on the possibility of medical bankruptcy, then the liberal media has already damaged you. Your mental problems are the fault of liberals, not republicans.

Your excuses are terribly lame. The mail is trivial to use. A disk player is trivial to use. Your whining about wires is also lame.

If you aren't willing to plug something into your TV, then you have to be content with "smart TV" features that suck or broadcast TV.

But if you insist on depriving yourself, that's your own problem.

> but the same goes for the US where cops can steal your cash

This is a largely irrelevant problem for most businesses as few deal in large amounts of cash. Just the idea of transporting cash as a non-criminal gives me pause. Never mind pause, I view it as absurd from a basic security perspective.

Your entire rant glosses over the very real fact that death certificates are total bullshit. NO ONE ever puts the real cause of death down because no one wants to get sued or get entangled in the ensuing mess. So the standard practice is to put down heart disease or cancer regardless of actual cause.

This measure would be a considerable deviation from current practice.

Truth in death reporting would actually be nice. It will probably set off a shit storm of litigation though.

There are plenty of clusters of long living people. They now seem to be the new trendy thing in cancer quackery.

Chances are, the only thing they have on their side is luck. They tend to have both a distinct genome and a unique (usually isolated) environment.

There is likely no magic elixir to be distilled from them.

Although I will agree that all matters of human biochemistry are still so poorly understood (despite our own hubris on the matter) that anything could be possible.

I just won't believe anything in particular until it's very well understood and well tested.

What is so special about that post anyway? What sort of extra special secret personal characteristics do you need for that job anyhow? It's a low profile domestic position.

People are paying way to much attention to this trivial shit just because they're butt hurt that the other party won.

It's like you morons thought that a Black President fundementally altered the nature of the universe and ended history.
