You would think Businesses would be clamoring for a single payer plan. Large corporations have banks of call center operators to answer questions about employee health plans and teams of benefit administrators to fine tune their health plans and negotiate with insurance companies. Small businesses are at the mercy of insurance companies. If one employee gets cancer, everyone's rates go up.

Old people get sick and go in the hospital and cost insurance companies money. If we got rid of Medicare and made senior citizens buy from private companies, they couldn't afford it. There are not enough young people who don't get sick who would buy insurance to cover the cost of treating old people. And there are 60 MILLION baby boomers about to get old and sick in the next ten years.

On the plus side, old people would die quicker and cheaper from lack of medical care and the free-...

That's the ad Potter would have put out to get rid of George Bailey if he hadn't stolen his money first.

Posted on 03/19/12 at 02:54 pm in response to Some reasons to be bullish on the future of magazines

I notice newsweeklies in my wife's name have different versions of the same ads than the ones in my magazine. Same companies, different ads. Auto ads are aimed at women in hers, men in mine. Inserted pages, added in and stapled after the rest of the magazine has been printed.

The technology of the printing industry is advancing like the web. If they can custom print ads, they can custom print content.

Your mailbox will contain micro-targeted, custom-printed magazines based on...

Posted on 03/16/12 at 11:26 am in response to The economic and political truth about right-to-work legislation

Employers just want the freedom to not pay a living wage.

Workers want the freedom from employers who don't want to pay a living wage.

Since we don't want the government to do that, the workers have to form unions.

Its free enterprise.

Posted on 03/13/12 at 12:06 pm in response to 'Right to work,' Act One: Ending a 'jobs tax'?

We want a Right to Work amendment that states:

We have the right to work for a company that provides a living wage
We have the right to work for a company that doesn't treat its employees as "Human Resources"
We have the right to work for a company that doesn't pay its executives 500 times the average worker
We have the right to work for a company that respects the environment
We have the right to work for a company whose profits go to Main Street not Wall...

Posted on 03/12/12 at 12:39 pm in response to Maine poll: Same-sex marriage may be headed toward approval

Two incomes plus no children equal financial clout. The Gay community has become the richest demographic in America.

Corporations and politicians are finding that out. Even though they don't care about people, they care about money.

Do they really care if the batter is left-handed or right-handed after he hits the game winning home run?

I was listening to KQ and Tom Barnyard with my 8-year-old daughter in the front seat. She turned to me and asked what a blow job was. I haven't listened to them since.

Posted on 03/05/12 at 12:59 pm in response to Voter ID plan raises many practical questions

The only jobs, jobs, jobs they're worried about is their own.

This is part of a multi-front attack on Democratic Party voters all aimed at keeping the Republicans in power.

#1 - Attack and eliminate Unions --they tend to vote Democratic (Can you blame them?)
#2 - Make it harder for people who lean Democrat to vote --Voter registration laws
#3 - Redistricting to entrench Republican legislatures
#4 - Allow the wealthy and corporations to give unlimited money to...
