Used to race against a boat called As Larks Harmoniously...
Some people's premiums may go down, but the total amount of premium income to insurance companies will go up.
Will VT have a limited formulary? England is single payer but has NICE, which limits the approved, reimbursed drugs. The rate of mortality from heart disease is 36% higher than in the US
Nah, that's just one example, the use of robot assisted surgery for prostatectomy is another. The point is that the genetic diversity of the US versus Europe or Japan is a cost driver, as is US...
My point about hypertension was not that we pay for insurance on diseases we don't get, but that the American mix if diseases and our responses to them are inherently more expensive than Europeans'
The web site is just like a package with rips in it, the central problem, as I see it, is that insurance companies are going to need more in premiums. If they insure a bunch more people, and a bunch...
Who remembers Peter Ustinov's Grand Prix of Gibraltar with its reference to the Societee Anonyme des Constructeurs des Voitures en Bois?
Mr. McMahon, beg to differ, the difference is the culture. If Rahm Emmanuel, reduced the income differences, enforced the existing gun laws, incarcerated the offenders, and broke up the gangs, his...
I have to ask, Norman, did the Republicans ever vote against a single payer plan?
Serious question, I tuned in late
Has Rush ever said anything "naughty" about Sarah Palin?
Interestingly, Norman, violent crime, declining in the US, is rising in Jolly Olde England
I would argue that the goal should be to reduce violence. Reducing gun violence without reducing other forms is really just playing with definitions. I don't think my survivors would be greatly...
One thing has occurred to me, but I have heard no discussion about it. When people have health insurance, they consume ~1/3 more health care than the uninsured, thus we can expect Obamacare to...
Morton Grove, IL springs to mind.
My point was, and is, that gun regulations per se do not prevent gun violence.
Not that they cause gun violence
Gun control's effectiveness is well illustrated by comparing rates of gun violence in Chicago and Washington DC with Vermont. The two cities have rates of gun murder in excess of 20/100,000 (IIRC)...
What I fail to understand is why the unions were silent. They should have raised Holy Hell when the first pension was underfunded by a nickle.
Now, I fear it is too late to save Detroit without...
RI, like most states, does not require that we register our guns.
How is registration working out in DC?
I can make a pretty good guess about tomorrow, but what about TG Eve?
We'll be having pulled pork, cole slaw and stewed tomatoes, semi-vegetarian daughter will get shrimp.
How about you all?
Well, the bacteria will develop resistance to phages, but the phages will evolve too.
One prob is, antibiotics are not real profitable drugs, you get sick, they give you two weeks of gorillacillin,...
Maybe PA is wishing for an impeachment?
I don't know, I've never been taught the handshake
Interestingly, The Providence Journal, our state daily, does not make the list for RI. Makes me suspicious
Cause our medical system is so dysfunctional?
I think it's cuz jolly rhymes with holly
And holly is just holy, with a spare l
T12-T16 looks interesting
I thought 25% of internet traffic was related to Hitler
One reason Docs work for Hosps for a salary and bonus is to let the Hosp handle billing/collection hassles
Here in RI, our Gov was elected with a plurality of ~35% (three way race) but the turnout was only about 45% so ~78% of the eligible voters did not vote for him. We've had photo ID for voting for a...
The OP does make a good point, the Germans have hidden behind Hitler. He did not shoot, gas, etc. Jews, the German people did. I've never been sure whether he really hated Jews, or was just taking...
One thing I haven't heard discussed is demand for health care. The Rand Corp did a study of people with and without health insurance. The group with a 5 copay, essentially full coverage consumed...
But I'll bet the author in the OP doesn't know what "parging" means, or "water of convenience"
He's talking out of both sides of his mouth, the old policies were bad, but you can get them back. First, he doesn't know that, the ins cos may decline to offer them, second, and a much bigger...
Have no idea.
They some times congregate on the athletic field of the local middle school. There is a mailbox layby adjacent. When we see them, or seagulls there, I let Grendel out of the car, he...
Racehorse ('sass) is excessively beamy, crew will get hurt being thrown from rail to rail,
Some taper to the stern deck would be more eyesweet,
How much resistance does dragging the lower...
As they to the unsprung weight, IIRC, Maserati dealt with that by putting the brakes (so long ago, were drums) inboard of the suspension, right next to the differential. Obviously the ecar won't...
I always translated it as "shameless."
Can't find original thread, I've been away for a few days
The liver gets its blood from the gut, it's called the hepatic portal system. It gets first shot at nutrients, and drugs, etc.
Or, how many Canterbury bound pilgrims does it take to change a light bulb?
"Speak again, sweet lips, that I may find thee in the night"
Who'd a thunk it?
A 1911, IIRC, only has 53 parts
Couldn't they have put a few more lines on the ship in that first photo?
Looks like complete BS to me. If you take suicides out of gun deaths, gun violence in America falls to equivalence with other developed nations. England is particularly violent, other EU nations...
NYT used to have a great column, The Sixty Minute Gourmet. IDK why they discontinued it. These days, I get most of my recipes on line
But no place for the loader to ride
Male >55 yo, should be on a baby aspirin a day
William Snaith worked with him
Why not make it part of Egypt?
Food will be better on an ex French possession than an ex English
