  3. Medicare going away

    Unfortunately, voters are usually very stupid and don't manage to look beyond their own "I got mine, to heck with you". Until, of course, it affects them directly and then they are outraged, but by...

    You are in charge of your career, no one else. You should always do what is best for you. If that sounds selfish-so be it. Trust me, no one else will be looking out for you, no matter what they tell...

    I do so love these threads!

    My Mom is probably the most perfect example of the stupidity of our healthcare payment system I've ever had personal experience with. It covers all the bases.

    Keurig 2.0

    Just be careful, the new Keurig 2.0 only accepts certified k-cups, not off brands. We got a new one for Christmas and it only worked for one day. They sent us a new one right away and that one works...
