    For all the connotations, however, it turns out that Magnum is not so large. It is the same length as standard condoms, with the same circumference at its base, Mr. Daniels said. “Some people feel more comfortable with that width, but you don’t have to be an overly endowed man to use a Magnum and enjoy it,” he added.

    But acquiring pornography of the same calibre as ay pornography for free is very difficult.

    Men deserve subsidized masturbation.

    They are correct to believe that. The risk pools skewed up with the mandate, as well the mandatory coverages added to cost. The bill was a turd and just about everything agents have been warning against is coming forth.

    I dont know what health care they had before but mine as gone up atleast every 3 years for the last 15 years, they act like THIS i the first and only time.
    Well, I could sell a single twenty something a policy for around 110 a month with a decent deductible when I started around nine years agoe and now it's around 3 to 4 hundred with the most dramatic increases being this year. Of course coverage was getting more expensive before but that doesn't dismiss what is happening because of the bill. I will tell you, just about every cost increase was due to some government reg. along the chain.
    Health insurance companies are damn near criminals in my OPINION, when it comes to health care providers there should be a cap of profit IMO.
    Actually, if you want criminal charges you'll have to dig further. The HMO debacle was started in the '70s under a bill sponsored by the late senator Ted Kennedy, prices spiked around the nineties with the regulatory burden, states have ridiculous mandatory coverages on top of that, Pelosi and Reid along with every yea vote and signatory of Obamacare should honestly be in prison for their parts of the latest bill, it was grossly negligent market interference that would have landed a private businessman in jail
    I used to have a link about Cleve L. Killingsworth he was/is a CEO for one of the BCBSs and I may mess this up but it will be close:

    he gave himself a 26% pay increase and bonus
    even though the companies numbers were down
    even though they were doing lay offs
    even though their income dropped 49%
    and then he raised all his costumers rates!

    Im not against people making money or capitalism but this is the type of **** that is making us weaker.
    One bad CEO does not an industry make. Blaming him would be like blaming the insurance industry for the failure of AIG.
    WHats even more sad among a lot of CEO types he is PRAISED and RESPECTED! why? because he increased his own bottom line, f the company's, f the customers, his did good so he got a pat on the back from his friends. Pathetic.
    Well, again he may have been less than ethical, but then again so is forcing economically deadly regs. on an industry. The difference is that one bad company can be replaced by it's consumers but bad regs. force bad industry standards. I'll tell anyone who will listen, I was trained in the stuff and what I saw from compliance was a complete load, thousands of unnecessary steps just to keep federal and state regulators happy, get that out of the way and you have a less expensive product.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yes breakage is why you want us to think you mentioned it, but I see an ulterior motive in there.

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Going faster than a feral dog and not using lube is his ulterior motive.

    But if I don't get a proper and envigorating release I won't work, sleep, or socialize as well, it's in the national interest.

    I dont agree they were right and it wasnt just ONE bad CEO that was just an example, it sadly is more common than one isolated case.

    Im not a fan of everything in the new healthcare but im have to admit im super glad it happened because its a start, something needed done period and now the ball is rolling. Cancel and rewrite parts of it, add to it etc etc but im glad something, anything was done.
