Todd Maclin, CEO of consumer and business banking at Chase - “When the world lets us charge something more akin to your gym membership or your card, we’ll be right there with them,”

My reaction to this: Go visit your local credit unions, they actually want your consumer business. The difference in service, attitude, and aptitude of the staff at my CU is night & day better than in my dealings with banks (including our current mortgage holder we didn't ask for and would fire if we could)

A great example, but it doesn't expose the other reason to support healthcare reform. She could have waited. It could have been malignant. She could have waited till she was almost dead, gone to an emergency room, been admitted and treated till she eventually did die at a cost 100 times more than the treatment she ended up receiving.

Without healthcare reform she could have died, at a large cost to the taxpayers (since we indirectly absorb the costs of emergency treatments for the un-insured). With health care reform she lives at and contributes to the tax base helping everyone, and over her lifetime paying for her own treatment many times over.

Wouldn't you rather save money and save lives than spend more to allow people to wither and die?

Yes there are viable alternatives to gasoline! Perhaps the most exciting is Thorium which is clean, cheap and non-polluting.

There are even a few folks working to put Thorium into cars...

Health care reform reasoning concisely articulated:

"People who make a decision to forego health insurance do not opt out of the health care market," she wrote. "Their action is not felt by themselves alone. Instead, when they become ill or injured and cannot pay their bills, their costs are shifted to others. Those costs - $43 billion in 2008 alone - are borne by doctors, hospitals, insured individuals, taxpayers and small businesses throughout the nation."

Asking everyone to pull their fair share of the burden is not only legal, it is fair. In the US you must be treated if you go to a hospital with an emergency. We are already paying for universal healthcare, we are just not managing it or funding it appropriately.

That’s one finding in the first national study of the subject in a decade. The report also highlights some examples of how educators have been able to help students stand up to sexual harassment.

Scientists find cure for aging ... is this a good thing? At 7 billion people and growing we need an intervention faster than ever if we are able to live forever.

And if you think Social security has problems now.. what if we live forever ;-)

Researchers have found that cleansing the body of a special category of cells could postpone many of the diseases that come with aging.

+Brandon Reinhart The study involved mice that are genetically programmed to dies of heart failure at a specific time. The study did not make conclusions on life extension because of this. They will be doing a follow on study with mice with normal life spans. It will be interesting to see how that study comes out.

If only politicians would have learned from our mistakes rather than be hell bent on having us relive them by rolling back regulations on banks!

The representatives that are pushing for SOPA and PIPA are either:

A: Bought and paid for
B: Incredibly ignorant
C: Not listening to their constituents
D: All of the Above

I am guessing (D) what do you think?
