I run 2 miles a day and lift weights every other day to stay healthy. Why sould i pay more for a fatty that sits on there butt all day eatting twinkys
when i do the hard work to keep myself out of the hospital?
And you should get another 10 bucks a month price break for the exercise rubbing
that old school, hard as nails Turtle Wax into the Big Blue. Feel the burn. But we
both know it's worth the work. I still need an ice pack I'm a puss.
I think the point being made is they want everybody to be 'a special case'-- even
though it's Universal Health Care, we're all doing something worth penalizing. That
way almost all of us get to pay more than the promised cap.
I personally think it's a beautiful thing to pig out a valve train with exhaust overlap
until the cold start actually wakes my dead grandmother. Bowties make me cry...
it's just the thicker jets, sorry... no I'm not.
But aren't we paying more at the pump, and for virtual cat urine octane?
And the vanity plates that say crazy stuff in seven unintelligble letters?
I also consider a quick antique a choice, and expensive: but no injury.
Off topic old Sport, Mouse or Rat? Just askin'... but back to the subject.
I'm 60 and work iron all night in a big pizza factory. I bike home 10 mi as
the crow flies when the weather allows, because I have to. No regrets.
But if I smoke, I get to pay 25 bucks a week more for health insurance
I'll get voted off (for any payback on) by a death panel? Sounds like all
I'm doing is pay to work there while they make me more sick than smoking.
Check out what vaporized 30:1 ClearEdge and high Nickel content cast iron
mud do to your endocrine system. Lithium grease is unsalted butter compared
to this gunk-ola, trust me E-bod. I look 70 now, and maybe too as tired as I feel...
but still no regrets. We all pay our way, whether by choice or not. But do you
think the manufacturers are going to pay a noticeable penalty for making
workers sick in the first place? I think the last time was New Jersey v. Scanlon,
almost 40 years ago.
Now, the people with 'bad habits' are paying for the health care of people
who the government say don't have them. Think about it, Chevy fans... the
government is telling you what a bad habit is. Are you making my cam illegal
because it makes unburned pigeon poison, or because it makes you nervous??
In the final analysis, who's really the loser(s)? Everyone but the providers.
God I just love intractable beaurocracy... I might just write in Satan in November.
No doubt as to his platform. ps But I ain't fat... Go, heartbeat.
