    Of course some insurance companies played the numbers game, that's exactly what I am talking about. Get it now while they can, before the law limits them on how much they can increase the rates. Since this whole delay game has come into play, it's another opportunity for them to claim costs and raise the rates....
    That helps insurance companies and doesn't hurt them. There is no logical reason for significant reason for rates to go up. In states like mind, they didn't. Some states didn't act wisely, and added to the problems. But logically, having more people in the pool is a plus for insurance companies. It more than counter acts the new costs.

    I did. It's a room of doctors and nurses. We'll talk about it. More than half will be for the reform.

    Absolutely not. My family has a very strict policy of no politics or business at the dinner table. I wouldn't sell that propagandized garbage anyway. It's a crap policy that offers sub par coverage and a whole list of unintended concequences that have yet to be fully realized, and it never should have existed in the first place.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I doubt it... we reserve Thanksgiving chatter to what we are actually thankful for.

    No, I've learned better than to talk politics with my family, particularly my mother. She takes it personally.

    And everyone in my family has insurance so it's pointless.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    My family takes Thanksgiving as an opportunity to share with one another things for which we're thankful. They always run the gamut from the here and now to the more broad topics like the freedoms we enjoyed, what Thanksgiving meant to those who first came to this land, and to the multitude of millions who would follow similar dreams - some of whom were our ancestors.

    We take Thanksgiving as a time to get together as family, to enjoy being together with one another, to share a meal, some laughs, stories, maybe watch a little football.

    Why in the wide, wide world of sports would we EVER use this time instead to celebrate something being immorally and unconstitutionally forced upon a free people contrary to their wishes by a president and political party that had to lie continuously to justify having twisted and debased the very principles upon which this nation was founded for the sake of their selfish political power grab, for the sake of something utterly contrary to the very spirit of the holiday - something as coercive and divisive as Obamacare?

    We try to set rules about mentioning Obama's name or his programs. It seems to anger everyone in the house and holidays are much happier if the shame of Obama is kept out of it.

    Sometimes jokes or Jay Leno quips about Obama slip into the conversation though and that's okay.

    As far as my Wife is concerned, politics are taboo at TG.

    Nuff said.
