"neither a beggar or borrower be" or some shakespeare shit like that, but if I "loan" money to a real friend, I don't really expect to see it again, and that's ok, as long as it's not a habit, cuz if I can afford to lend it, then I can afford to live without it.
 I just noticed the guy with all the money looks the most "girly". Is it just me?

I'm a little surprised by the number of people who don't seem to know much about time just before they were born. I mean, I wasn't around in the 50's or 60's but I know about culture, politics, business and foreign affairs from then ... and from the 1860's. And 1760's.

The next time someone in their 20's says they don't know about the 80's I'm going to have to remind them of internet ... or even ... BOOK!

through organizing instead of advertising, etc, that's way cool... unfortunately a lot of people see the word "news" and believe it is news when it's really domestic terrorism or propaganda. I imagine a lot of them have big bibles and even bigger automatic weapons stashed away when they're not shopping with some of them at Target or Walmart. Yeah, I'm starting to get paranoid, not to mention sick of all the used needles strewn around the building and in the garage here...

It is actually a way cheaper choice to go with Linux than either Windows or Mac. Better options, way more protection against identity theft.

"Spoons for hands, or elbows for ears" ... but then she says "talk into my elbow" as if she had ears for elbows.

The writers got their metaphor backwards.

Letter from the Society of Professional Journalists to President Obama
- -
July 8, 2014

Mr. President,

You recently expressed concern that frustration in the country is breeding cynicism about democratic government. You need look no further than your own administration for a major source of that frustration – politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies. We call on you to take a stand to stop the spin and let the sunshine in.

Over the past two decades, public agencies have increasingly prohibited staff from communicating with journalists unless they go through public affairs offices or through political appointees. This trend has been especially pronounced in the federal government. We consider these restrictions a form of censorship -- an attempt to control what the public is allowed to see and hear.

The stifling of free expression is happening despite your pledge on your first day in office to bring “a new era of openness” to federal government – and the subsequent executive orders and directives which were supposed to bring such openness about. 

Recent research has indicated the problem is getting worse throughout the nation, particularly at the federal level. Journalists are reporting that most federal agencies prohibit their employees from communicating with the press unless the bosses have public relations staffers sitting in on the conversations. Contact is often blocked completely. When public affairs officers speak, even about routine public matters, they often do so confidentially in spite of having the title “spokesperson.” Reporters seeking interviews are expected to seek permission, often providing questions in advance. Delays can stretch for days, longer than most deadlines allow. Public affairs officers might send their own written responses of slick non-answers. Agencies hold on-background press conferences with unnamed officials, on a not-for-attribution basis.

In many cases, this is clearly being done to control what information journalists – and the audience they serve – have access to. A survey found 40 percent of public affairs officers admitted they blocked certain reporters because they did not like what they wrote.

Some argue that controlling media access is needed to ensure information going out is correct. But when journalists cannot interview agency staff, or can only do so under surveillance, it undermines public understanding of, and trust in, government. This is not a “press vs. government” issue. This is about fostering a strong democracy where people have the information they need to self-govern and trust in its governmental institutions.

It has not always been this way. In prior years, reporters walked the halls of agencies and called staff people at will. Only in the past two administrations have media access controls been tightened at most agencies. Under this administration, even non-defense agencies have asserted in writing their power to prohibit contact with journalists without surveillance. Meanwhile, agency personnel are free speak to others -- lobbyists, special-interest representatives, people with money -- without these controls and without public oversight. 

Here are some recent examples:

• The New York Times ran a story last December on the soon-to-be implemented ICD-10 medical coding system, a massive change for the health care system that will affect the whole public. But the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), one of the federal agencies in charge of ICD-10, wouldn’t allow staff to talk to the reporter. 

• A reporter with Investigative Post, an online news organization in New York, asked three times without success over the span of six weeks to have someone at EPA answer questions about the agency's actions regarding the city of Buffalo’s alleged mishandling of “universal waste” and hazardous waste.

• A journalist with Reuters spent more than a month trying to get EPA’s public affairs office to approve him talking with an agency scientist about the effects of climate change. The public affairs officer did not respond to him after his initial request, nor did her supervisor, until the frustrated journalist went over their heads and contacted EPA’s chief of staff.

The undersigned organizations ask that you seek an end to this restraint on communication in federal agencies. We ask that you issue a clear directive telling federal employees they’re not only free to answer questions from reporters and the public, but actually encouraged to do so. We believe that is one of the most important things you can do for the nation now, before the policies become even more entrenched.

We also ask you provide an avenue through which any incidents of this suppression of communication may be reported and corrected. Create an ombudsman to monitor and enforce your stated goal of restoring transparency to government and giving the public the unvarnished truth about its workings. That will go a long way toward dispelling Americans’ frustration and cynicism before it further poisons our democracy.

Further examples on the issue are provided as well as other resources. 

Sincerely,

Wow! Damn good letter!!! He fucking lied -unless he comes clean. What an embarrassment.
Yeah, the totally fucked the Medicare billing system ICD 10 coding, didn't tell Medicare recipients, and now wondering if CMS will ever send out Medicare coverage statements again... motherfuckers.So you don't know what's paid, or how to file an appeal so easily. Especially old peeps needing large print.
I'm in the middle of dealing with a pile of bills going back to 2013 and fuck-ups between them and a provider and their coding/billing change in the system around early 8/13 (? I read somewhere, and remember Drs in offices flipping out while I was there because they were being told they were not using the right code) Not sure what to pay this useless Dr I no longer see. i'm going to call medicare now!

Introduction
You can literally change the world. I'd love to help you do that. I typically work with entertainment professionals and non-profit activists. If that's your thing, we should talk. 

I work in an environment where we are always encouraged to be ourselves. That said, all of the comments I make here are 100% my own and could in no way reflect the opinions of those I work with or the customers we serve. No way.

Most of what I post here is humor, satire and political punditry, with an occasional rant about personal relationships or social justice. I ban trolls pretty quickly and am very sensitive to hateful comments toward others ... as opposed to good old-fashioned swear words or light-hearted debate. Basically, don't be an asshole on my profile or posts. Do that from your own door step.

The two older women who run the deli in the morning ruin my experience for the entire store nearly every time I go into this location. I work next door, and there isn't really anything else open in the neighborhood, plus the deli food is decent and predictable. The problem is that these two women (not the younger ones, not the dudes) have zero social skills and should not be working with the public. I could make a long list of cliche anti-customer behaviors but you should probably experience it for yourself. My favorite part is when you first get there and nobody else is around, but they don't say anything for a minute or two after they've seen you. That's always a great way to start an exchange. These two are grouchy, grumpy, angry, bitchy, nasty - pick an adjective. Pretty unbelievable they still have jobs. Safeway must be union. I feel for the others who have to work with them. You'd think management would step up and impose some kind of hospitality training on people like this. Two stars because they exceed their 3 minute sandwich-making policy all the time, _providing free sandwiches_ to those who assert the policy.
