Why would you get on the plane? Why?
One of two nurses at a Dallas hospital who tested positive for Ebola should not have flown on a commercial airline and is being sent to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment, officials said Wednesday.

Listening to my wife talk to #Obamacare  on the phone has allowed me to discover just how angry she can get.   Its a new scary side  of her I have not seen before, even after 10 years of marriage.

She has called three times today, and got the same person each time, who told her a different thing each time.  "I JUST TALKED TO YOU!!"

They have to be fucking with us.  You have no recourse when you deal with them.  There is no escalating the call to a manger, there is no speaking to people who make the decisions.  What you get is a shitty telephone rep with no clue.

Stress has well-documented negative effects on one's well-being. Have you looked into some sort of public heath initiative to assist your wife? Perhaps there's an organization she can call.

I never really understood what the Isreal/Palestine conflict was all about. I mean I knew it was a fight over land, and some of the other facts, but that was about it.  Its really a pretty fucked up situation.

I would fight them, most Americans would. Who wouldn't?  Unless some crazy shit went down, nothing like this would ever happen in America.  The legal system we have, even with all its faults, would simply not allow this.

The media in America talks about the fighting, but they do not really get into the reasons, they just ramble off the body count.  They make it sound like Palestinians are just crazy people.  They talk about "settlements", but they never point out that what is happening is that Israel is bulldozing people's existing homes to throw up some condos, and these people kinda take offense to this.  Somehow, these condo developers seem to be working directly with the military.  Its crazy that its nearly the year 2015 and stuff like this is still happening.  It reminds me of how America treated native indians. We all look back on that and say "wow, that was really wrong", and yet this is strikingly similar.

In the real world, if you want land, you buy it from the people that own it already.

U.N. says nature’s “cushions” against climate change are less effective as greenhouse gases increase.

Another day, another grueling set of conversations with #Obamacare .  I'm not sure the people realize they are actually dealing with what could be life and death situations.  Every person you talk to tells you something different. Some flat out lie to get you off the phone, or they just hang up on you.

Its the first time in my life that I can remember republicans being right about something.
Massachusetts is struggling under ObamaCare. In the state that “inspired” the Affordable Care Act (ACA), with almost universal coverage and a functional exchange, most would assume the transition to the federal law would be largely cosmetic. Yet many BayState insiders have been surprised by the number of brick walls the state has run into during early implementation and are privately expressing deep concerns about the road ahead. Massachusetts is...

Are you sure those operating the Massachusetts exchange AREN'T on the RNC payroll?

There was no heroic adventure, only bloodshed. Columbus Day should not be a celebration. Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island's beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ...

We've been cancelled by #Obamcare  for not being able to prove we just moved back into the country from New Zealand.

They requested notorized copies of our passports and visas from New Zealand, which we provided to them at a cost of $75.  When we called to confirm it was all settled, they said "These don't prove anything because you might have forged these passports."  Now we're without any insurance.  This is after sending them copies of bills, rental lease, all kinds of stuff.

They of course  sent me a bill for September and happily took the money.

Why the hell do we make things so hard in America?  Now my daughter is without her asthma medication.  I don't get it.

You can still  sign up outside of the open enrolment period if you just move to the state, which is what we did.  The website was down for the entire open enrolment period.  We tried to sign up from New Zealand at least 20 times and then realized we didn't have to because we were moving there, and that counted as some kind of "life event".

This whole thing is a sad joke.

Student loan debt is now more than the total credit card debt owed by everyone in America.  Either Americans have learned to stay away from credit cards, or we've fucked ourselves again.

I'm so glad I ended up going to Cal State Long Beach instead of USC. Basically the same film education, but a fraction of the price. I don't think I would be in any better of a position in my career today had I been paying off 50k, years after graduating, but with a piece of paper saying USC
