    I can kind of see the trainers point- you inherit a client who bought the wrong horse and won't sell for any number of reasons, and you can't really fix the situation, so you drug the horse. There...

    I would not tell her. Some women actually look the other way at that stuff and don't want to know. She may even have a clue. She may not WANT to know. She also might not believe you.

    In my case, my policy for 2014 was canceled. My insurer offered to let me renew on December 1, 2013. So I renewed in 2013 for a policy that can no longer be offered in 2014. My insurer sent a letter...

    I read an article written by a poor woman who had just given up. She explained why she did things that were irresponsible.... she smoked as an appetite suppressant and it "kept her going". She was a...

    So that's an interesting definition in which you could potentially have multiple people. It seems like they should take out the care/custody and just have training and performance. At my barn, I...

    That's a really cute horse and he seems to be getting the idea of a quiet rhythm down. One thing to consider- on the last line, you made a big adjustment with your hands and he got a little flustered...
  7. This is true. Look, it's just hard to make a...

    This is true. Look, it's just hard to make a living these days even if you have useful skills (note- the ability to ride well is not particularly useful in the scheme of things). The likelihood of...

    The article.... is in Town and Country magazine, a magazine about rich people. It is not generally a magazine that writes about poor or middle class people.

    If you want to make it in the sport,...

    And I don't hold a grudge against people that need help- if you need food stamps, housing and health care, so be it (though please don't have more children). My neighborhood has Section 8 housing and...
  10. I got you. I would be thrilled if my premium...

    I got you. I would be thrilled if my premium stayed the same and say "hey, great job policy makers".

    However, I think so often policy makers simply communicate very poorly and make it hard for...

    I'm not trying to be "selfish" I'm just trying to plan for what I may need to do come January if my insurance becomes unaffordable. Not being able to plan for it is rather stressful. I'm not exactly...
  12. Would that not be paid for by the car insurance...

    Would that not be paid for by the car insurance of the vehicle's driver? I know people have accidents, but I would think that they could calculate all that out- I mean, a diabetic with heart disease...
  13. I think that should be restated that too many...

    I think that should be restated that too many women without access to birth control be it lack of education, income or access use abortions as birth control and it is wrong. But really, who the hell...

    The better question.... shouldn't you maybe pay less than that person? Like it works for auto insurance. We all might have an accident. But some are more likely than others.

    It's OK by law in the US thru a certain point in time. This legislation just makes more regulation on the industry in terms of the facility being up to snuff. It seems hypocritical for conservatives...
  17. I don't think multiple marriages is a big deal,...

    I don't think multiple marriages is a big deal, but damn...if I met someone friend/romantic/anything and walked away from my first conversation knowing that much about their personal life, I would...

    That absolutely makes sense except now, iirc, we are required to have an insurance policy.

    Now, for me- today, medical insurance premiums plus having my deductible set aside is about 7.5% of my...

    I thought they equalized things so that someone healthy would now pay the same rate as an unhealthy smoker?
    Today, being self insured is like car insurance where you benefit from having good health...
  20. For me, the biggest problem with Obama care is...

    For me, the biggest problem with Obama care is that there is no indicator of how much more this will cost people. I am self insured, $112 a month premium, $2500 deductible. I have no way of knowing...

    A lot of people. They don't advertise it as such but their recommendations are much lower than what I eat. I strive for around 120 grams a day. Typical recommendations are about half that.

    Honestly, it's hard not to food evangelize when you struggle for so long and stumble upon something that works. It drives me nuts when people insist that "portion control" or "not eating crap" always...

    I did. It worked. Boom, done. I stopped eating the "medically sanctioned" whole grain vegetarian diet and traded it for a diet much higher in protein and fat, and much lower in carbs. It was a huge...
