Sure an ambulance will pick you up, and take you to the ER, then the bill comes, not the same bill the insurance company would get. No, you don't get those discounts, you play the full price. It will haunt you till the day the bill is paid in full. For most an amount that can not be paid. The cost is often absorbed by the tax payer, that is why the real cost of health is so high in this country. Have a job and no insurance? Check out the price for you with no off-set by an employer. It is all insane, impractical and nothing but health care to the highest bidder.

If you don't love Jon Stewart, I'm not sure you have a sense of humor. Maybe there's transplant for that?

Ty Tom. Speaking of medical care. . .It was good to hear yesterday that you do have a pulse. :)

Agree that The Robber Baron Romney could care less about the truth or uninsured persons as he doesn't know anything about either. Wealth Maintenance Government and Magical Market Economies are his preferred policies and priorities. Here's a little innovative Magical Market Theory applied: The uninsured should just install automobile elevators in their apartment buildings...then they could keep ambulances on-site with designated drivers ready-to-go for emergencies. This would create new small businesses with lots of new jobs to manufacture and market all of it and provide designated driver services...Magical Markets are a wonderful thing [please don't ask for the math it just takes to long to do it. . .]

Watch some type of pot shot get taken at that a favorite key phrase can then be quoted for the media. . . "both sides do it!"

Another excellent cartoon.

Puzzle 3:53 and not frisky pussy cat today too tired! Sleeping beside me.

MoveOn Excellent! Is it me, or does Rmoney's jacket, shirt, even his face have that 'glow in the dark' look? Maybe he should go to the Emergency room! Maybe he's radio active or something!

AlterNet Jon Stewart is funny! But I do think his targets should be called The Not So Magnificent Bastards! Oops! Cat alert. Someone just jumped up to see what all the hacking was about must have thought a 'hairball' when in actual fact it was a 'bastard attack!"

Denver Post Lots of luck trying to find the jerk! I read about some school districts in the US that require students to carry microchip enabled school ID. Maybe there should be a rule that if you want to buy a gun, you have to have a microchip ID implanted on your person. That way, maybe some of these crazies could be ID'd and dealt with.

Cartoon No kidding!

Get out the vote!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!
