  1. Biggest crime is the person recording the fight in vertical mode.
  2. I just came here to post this! I hate this commercial so much. Probably because I haven't heard a pitcher referred to as a Rembrandt once during the thousands of baseball games I've listened to or have watched in my life. I SURE AS #### HAVE HEARD IT IN THIS COMMERCIAL A MILLION TIMES THOUGH!!! Really, all these ads where they compare their to something completely irrelevant. This GMC truck is alike a pitcher who paints the corners, this Chrysler is like Katniss, this Mazda is like the guy who changed how to do the high jump, this Chase banking acccount is like Serena Williams' double backhand.... ENOUGH!!! Your products are like none of those things!
  3. Because I'm a believer of science. over 2,000 peer reviewed studies have shown that GMOs are safe (as opposed to 0 peer reviewed studies that show GMOs to be harmful to us) A higher percentage of scientists agree that GMOs are safe than agree on vaccines don't cause autism and climate change is man made. That's great and all as far as the GMO seed itself is concerned. What about the actual herbicide, in this case RoundUp? Safe for the environment? Carcinogenic? Residues on the food we eat? I'm asking because I don't know. Isn't RoundUp what The Commish was posting about? to him, they go hand in hand.

  5. yeah, i spent a few days arguing with him over what was behind chemtrails. i piled on link after link of relevent information attempting to have a reasonable discussion of facts but to no avail. all i got in return was blind denial of anything opposing his viewpoint, and demands for real ... PROOF !!! after a while i just figured i was just being fished and gave up trying. You posted conspiracy drivel. I responded with links (with actual scientific content) that countered what you posted.

  7. WHAT WAS FOUND?! And actually found, not some quack's interpretation of it.
  8. Do you really think that a person who believes HIV is harmless and doesn't cause AIDS is a good medical reference? The guy you are attacking isn't the one doing the science and investigation. He reported it. As I said, it would probably be more productive to look at what was found in the FOIA request First, you didn't answer the question. Second, Don't get upset with me. You're the one that brought him into this conversation. You could've just linked the FOIA info, but you chose to link to an article by, and let's be honest here, a quack (and I think I'm being kind in the use of that term) The fact that you use someone like Null to back up your opinion speaks volumes about you. Instead of relying on quacks, I will stand by the vast majority of the scientific community who say GMOs are as safe if not more so then non gmo-crops. A majority that is even higher than that of those who believe Climate Change is caused by man and that vaccine's do not cause autism.. You can call me whatever names you want. I linked the link that I did because it was readily available. You can choose to do with it what you want. If you want to focus on the messenger that's on you. Have at it I didn't respond to your question because it's irrelevant to the FOIA request. Again, he was the messenger. One of many reporting on it. He just happened to be the top of the list and I have no idea who the guy is because it really doesn't matter in this instance. Here's your chance dude. Link to a reputable source. Bonus points if you can actually link to the 15,000 documents (or even the so called smoking guns) they got through the FOIA. Oddly enough I can't seem to find the documents anywhere. But I see tons of conclusions of said documents by the anti-gmo crowd. Funny how that works. My chance for what? You've already carved out a nice little niche for yourself. The FOIA request was issued by a source you clearly don't agree with. Even if he posted the entire 15,000 pages it would still be posted by a "source" you don't approve of. It's a vicious circle of absurdity that focuses on winning an argument rather than looking at the content. I don't get why people do it, but have at it. However, I'll make sure to post them so you can at the "source" they came from though You've said to look at what was found in the FOIA request. I'm asking to see what was found in the FOIA request (and not someone's interpretation of it). So which is it, you want me to discuss the actual documents they uncovered or discuss the interpretations of the scientists? If it's the former, show me the documents. If it's the latter, expect me and others to go after their credibility.

  13. how different is the coverage in those plans than what you had/have with cobra? ACA plans are not as good. Exactly my point, and you'd have a brand new 2 month deductible. Why give yourself a brand new deductible for only 2 months if you're not saving any money in premium? COBRA is the best option for you (as you're not going to be able to get subsidized coverage on the individual exchange). Yes it costs a lot, but so do the semi-compariable exchange plans, and you're not giving yourself a brand new deductible. When my son lost his job 2 years ago he was paying close to $400 for COBRA. He is paying less than half that for better coverage with a gold plan from the ACA. So I really think it likely varies by case. Well for me, to do COBRA for my family costs $1056/month. Cheapest gold plan is $825, $567 if I use the tax credit according to the site. The gold plan has ZERO out of network coverage. So to keep my own doctor, which Obama says I can do, means I pay for everything as if I had no insurance at all. And a lot of the plans benefits don't kick in until I use up my deductible which is $2000 for this particular one. Th most expensive gold plan is $1164/$964 with tax credit. This one actually does have out of network coverage. It'll cover up to 50% after I use up my deductible (also $2000). Oddly enough, prescriptions costs more with this one than the cheapest gold plan. And both have the issue that my daughter's pediatrician accepts neither. And neither are as good as what I had before.
  14. Oh, and I forgot I didn't mention this before.... COBRA is an individual right. That means that you can accept it for your daughter (so she can keep the coverage and pediatrician) and decline it for you and your wife and you two can find alternative options on the exchange or potentially go without for the next few months. I don't have an option for that. I can either insure myself($348), insure myself and my wife($784), insure myself and my daughter($686), or insure all 3 of us($1056). Those are the only options I have on the paperwork.
  15. Unless I can get my daughter on Medicare/CHIP (Apparently possible because of her autism) I'll have to stick with COBRA as switching pediatricians would be a bit chaotic. Ultimately, I'll just have to get a job sooner rather than later even if it's something I don't particularly care for. Which brings me to the law of unintended consequences. Most of the job listings in fields I'm qualified for are part time. 1 is even 29 hours a week (30 hours counts as full time and the company has to offer insurance)
  16. If all the plans are with the same carrier, you'll get the same answer. Most carriers offer one network for their individual products. If she's not one one plan, she won't be on any of that carrier's plans. My advice, call the doc's office and ask for a list of networks she participates in and then "shop backwards". and I've done just that. Don't accept any of the plans on the marketplace, but do support medicaid/chip programs which she is not eligible for because I made decent money earlier this year. So, had I been poor this whole year, no problem But since I wasn't, I'm SOL. That's actually one of the biggest issues I had with the exchange. It doesn't take into account a sudden loss of income. It just assumes that whatever your estimated yearly income is will be evenly distributed throughout the year. You can try "off exchange" plans - call a local insurance agent and ask. Also, and not to get too technical, but you may be best to take COBRA. As it's Oct 5, even if you get an individual plan (and your state works like mine) it won't be effective till November 1st, and since all individual plans are calendar year - you're really only buying coverage for 2 months with a brand new deductible that will "expire" 12/31. Taking COBRA means your deductible won't reset (if you even had one) and you can continue with that plan (and the pediatrician in question) till the end of the year and shop for all the 2016 plans with they become available. But don't tell TGunz I mentioned it, he thinks COBRA is the worst thing ever. COBRA's biggest downfall is it's cost. It would cost me a little over $1,000 a month keep my insurance through them. A lot of money if you're unemployed (Unemployment benefits are $514 a week.) But I have to get something apparently for all 3 of us or else I'm breaking the law. You can get a plan through the marketplace for the two months and just not pay the premium. They can't cut you off for 90 days. If you need it, pay the premium, if not, then don't. You "fine" will only be based on two months which can't be that much. Excellent idea. I think they even used that as an ad campaign to get it passed. "Destroy your credit with Obamacare!" It work hurt your credit. While a little bit on the low end of the ethical scale, it's better than not having insurance and ending up filing bankruptcy if something big occurred. Just consider it your subsidy that you're not getting yet. you sure it won't hurt credit? I mean, while you buy it through the ACA market, it's still Aetna, Blue Cross, Caresource, etc that you would not be paying. And insurance companies have never really been known to take a "They didn't pay. Oh well." approach.

GL Rayderr. The ACA certainly has plenty of kinks and flaws that we can hopefully iron out over the next decade or so. Hope one of those "kinks" as you put it is cost to be fair, the ones that cost as much as cobra are gold and platinum plans.

  22. As a recently unemployed person, I'm trying to get health insurance for my family through the health care exchange. My god what a pain this is. And as far as I can tell, the "you can keep your doctor" is total bull####. My wife and I could care less about keeping our doctors, but we want to keep the pediatrician for our daughter. She's not shown up on the provider's list of any of the 35 plans I've checked so far. But still got 15 more to go, though I'm at the price point where I may as well just keep my insurance through cobra.
