Re: “Rhee Memo: Say No to Guns in Schools

"You handwringers need to visit Israel sometime & see how they've protected their kids from suicidial attacks. There's usually multiple full-auto M-16s at each & every school."

We don't live in a war zone.

ALL Israeli citizens serve two years in the military, and are well trained.

Re: “If Tennessee opts out of the Affordable Care Act, voters may have good reason to feel sick

Call up as many insurance companies as you have the energy for, and tell them you need health insurance, and are self-employed. You and your wife are in your 50's, and pretty healthy, but you have high blood pressure and your wife has had some cancer scares. Nobody gets to 50 without some health issues. Let us know how that goes. It wil be $$$$$$$$ with exclusions for pre-existing conditions.

I pay $2100/month with $5k deductible for my wife and myself which is typical, and we are at the point there are no more options. We are also typical of so many that can afford a reasonable premium, and maybe even a higher deductible in exchange, but there's a limit.

Its not always about those who have insurance, and those some of you think are freeloaders-there are a lot of hardworking people who want to, but can no longer, or just barely afford it.

Emergency room visits are not healthcare.

Re: “Does Gibson Guitar’s playing the victim chord stand up to scrutiny?

"Why has there never been any other manufacturer of instruments been raided under the same terms?"

Maybe because they follow the law and can manage to fill out the paperwork?
