    And what's with all these kids wearing bike helmets anyway?

    Back when America was great you cracked your skull on the sidewalk and that's how you learned to fall on your arm next time!

    Didn't have car seats either -- if you went through the windshield it was your own damn fault!

    Whatever happened to personal responsibility?!?!?

    That turkey is getting at you. Your feeling tired and need to lie down and take a little snooze. A good turkey dinner does that to you. Something about a narcotic drug being in the turkey gravy.

    I know you really meant to say >"Didn't have any car seat belts."<

    But I remember driving a car once that didn't have any car seats and I used a dinning room chair as a car seat.

    Sad, isn't it? Life was sure a lot more exciting back then! Of course, we didn't have "experts" telling us how to live our lives, so you learned by experience. Most animals do, but we have had that ability programmed out of us, for our own good, mind you! We are so fortunate! :

    Greetings, Sedan. Hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving is a time for family and commercialism, not heated political debates among family.
    Health insurance is not a highly debated partisan policy. "Obamacare" is not a thing you can sign up for. I can't send a check to Obama and get medical bills covered.

    Semantics, the ACA is Obamacare which is this president's signature achievement of his time in office.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You can't "sign up" for the ACA. It's not a health insurance policy. This isn't semantics. The PSA is encouraging you to talk to your family members about buying health insurance. The only reason to think it's a partisan issue is if you're such a partisan hack that buying the same insurance policies from the same insurance companies suddenly became upsetting because a Democrat set up a website to do it.

    As much as Republicans are bitching and moaning these days, there really aren't any fundamental differences between the health insurance policies sold through the exchange and the ones you bought before. The premiums, co-pays, deductibles, have shuffled around, there's no lifetime or annual limits any more, sure. But so what? Did having health insurance suddenly become political? Did it become more or less important? The only reason I can think of to categorically reject the insurance exchange is spite. You can still buy insurance outside the exchange, but why not shop around? If the exchange had a better deal, would you reject it out of hatred for Obama?

    I am perfectly happy with what I got and always had, I just want to be left alone and for life to continue on without having to worry if a letter someday will show up in my mailbox telling me I no longer have what I had. If this was only about getting the uninsured insurance, then that is exactly what it would do. Obamacare would get those without insurance their insurance and leave everyone else alone. It is quite that simple. But it is something a whole lot more than just getting the uninsured insurance. If it wasn't everyone who had insurance prior to March of 2010 would still have it and only those without insurance would need to talk about getting insurance. No one else.

    Fun fact: many of the policies being canceled didn't have to be. Insurance companies just tell people their policy is canceled, but here's a new ACA-compliant policy that happens to be more profitable for us! We'll just sign you up... no, don't go shop around. This is the best price, and the fact that it's more expensive is totally Obama's fault, so be mad at him. Definitely don't check around for a better deal.

    So if you do get such a letter, shop around. (incidentally, this practice has been around much longer than Obamacare. It's just now they have a great excuse for it)

    You have insurance already? Great. So you don't need to talk about it at dinner. So don't. Seriously, nobody cares.
