Your "right to health care" would require some other person to give up a portion of their life or their property to either treat you or to provide you with drugs or medical implements. The Constitution does not provide for another individual to be indentured to you in this manner. Therefore, you have no "right" to health care.
Deal with it.

Love this tune. They played this song on David Letterman with Steve Martin on banjo. For those who don't know, Steve Martin is a very accomplished bluegrass banjo player.

Very cool man. I've always been a fan of Bela Fleck. That dude is at the top when it comes to bluegrass. Will look into these guys.
Thile is mindblowing. First time I saw him was a mandolin workshop at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, probably 11 or 12 years ago. Forget if it was '00 or '01, but it was him, Sam Bush, and Grisman. He did Song for a Princess, which is a piece he wrote inspired by Natalie Portman, and when he was done Sam and Grisman got on their knees and bowed in "we're not worthy" fashion. He is probably among the five best mandolin players ever and will often leave you in awe. If you want to see him play off the leash, see him play with the big boys at Telluride. Gabe Witcher is a madman, too. Seen him with a number of different acts, most notably with the Bluegrass Sessions Band when they toured in '02(?). When you're asked to go on tour and play with Jerry Douglass, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer, Bryan Sutton, and Bela Fleck, you're doing something special. That said, I have only heard a few tracks from the Punch Brothers. Bluegrass these days is something I'm only really interested in hearing live.
I first saw Thile with Nickel Creek on Austin City Limits TV show in the early 00's. I was blown away from the very first time I saw them play. I later saw them at ACL festival in 2002 or 2003. My wife and I saw them sometime after that at a local gig. After the show, my wife and I were walking back to our car, and we noticed a group of about 10 people gathered under an overpass. Thile was playing unplugged for about 20-30 minutes under this bridge for the small group. He seemed a little drunk, but was very gracious and took requests if he happened to know the tune. This was absolutely one of the coolest performances I have ever witnessed.
I cannot explain to those who are not familiar with the genre, but this show is one of the most anticipatied shows I can recall in quite some time.

Check out the House Band stuff in the pull down menu. That's the band I was referring to with J. Do, Bela, Sam, Bryan Sutton, and Edgar Meyer, this time using Luke Bulla on fiddle instead of Witcher. There's a whole bunch of old Telluride Bluegrass Festival video that has gone up on youtube and Google video in the last few years. I recommend combing through it. Especially any John Hartford or New Grass Revival/Sam Bush stuff. If you like acoustic music, those four days every year are heaven on Earth.

You have an incredibly innate talent for missing the point in every post you read. Congratulations, sir.

Everything I've seen from Thile is practically supernatural.
This is effing amazing. Thile and Jon Brion improving the musical score to fit the movie Stepbrothers with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
(sidenote: ever notice how it's completely legit to say something general in regards to kids like "I really like kids - they're fun to hang out with." But if you particularize it and say something like "I really like seven year olds" it immediately becomes weird. Interesting.)

That said, a couple of weekends ago the local Bluegrass station here in DC area rebroadcasted the show PB played at the Savannah Arts and Music Festival in 2010 and that show ####### rocks.
Do these guys have any live albums?
wine to those who are in anguish;
let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.
