Key Part Of Obamacare Website Going Dark This Weekend

Key Part Of Obamacare Website Going Dark This Weekend

Commented Oct 4, 2013 at 20:06:18 in Business

“Washington State's exchange website was dysfunctional the first few days, but by Wednesday it was working fine. For low to medium income people who are uninsured or buy their own insurance, the exchange is fantastic. Basically, all the plans limit out of pocket maximums to either $6,350 or less. For example, if your income is $20,000, the out-of-pocket maximums range from $1,100 to $6,350, and premiums from $0 to $380.55. If your income is higher, than the premiums are higher. There are lots of choices so picking a plan will take a while to decide, but this is a huge improvement over the current way individuals have to buy insurance. And knowing that your out-of-pocket expenses are capped at $6,350, you know that you won't be on the hook for unlimited medical expenses should you have a serious illness or accident.

It's no wonder the Republicans are in panic mode. If they can't stop the ACA, by the 2014 elections, they will be toast. The millions of individuals who used to be sucked dry by the insurance companies will have gotten a lot of relief in securing health insurance, and not a single one of them is going to be voting for the politicians who were denouncing Obamacare.”

“Do you really think the when a family is struggling to make it on the income of the middle class that those out of pocket expenses will ever be met? Not a chance. especially with the large price that basic coverage actually costs. People will subscribe and not be able to get the co-pay paid.”

“So the only way to get reasonable rates is to be more or less poor? So in effect, the gov is saying, don't go out and strive to make a good wage, stay poor so you can have healthcare and someone else can cover your subsidies. Otherwise, you're on your own? Way to punish those who have earned something in their lives..”

“One thing you are missing is that in all plans under the ACA, the maximum annual out of pocket expenses for an individual are $6,350 or $12,700 for family coverage. So once you have paid out that amount, you won't pay anything more. So if you get a bill of $40,000 and have no other medical expenses that year, if you are individual, your share is $6,350. In paying that bill, you would have used up your $5,000 deductible, and then after paying another $1,350 for you 50% share coverage, you would have spent $6,350 so you would not pay anything more.”

“Here are the annual gunfire deaths for the entire country of Japan as reported by the National Police Agency of Japan:

The past ten years, a total of 125 or 12.5 per year average. The US has a population 2.5 times that of Japan, so if the US had a similar ratio, the US would have averaged 31 gunfire deaths per year for the last ten years.

Take my word for it as a teenager and many years ago my friends and I made guns simply to see if we could. It is my opinion that as a nation we need to try to understand what is the need for so many to kill as the probability is killing of another is pretty much a way to commit suicide. Not always and every situation but for most the result is imprisonment and likely death for killing and the big question is "WHY"”

On the other hand, the US's non-gun murder rate is higher than Japan's, so even if you take away guns, the US still has a higher murder rate. It's not just guns that are the problem.”

“Incidents like this become more shocking when you compare US firearm incidents and deaths to a country like Japan. In 2012 the National Police Agency of Japan reported these firearm incidents:
Number of shooting: 28
Number of injured people: 12
Number of fatalities: 4
These are numbers for the entire year for the entire country. The US has approximately 2.5 times as many people, so if the US had a similar firearm incident ratio, there would have been just 70 shootings, 30 injured, 10 fatalities during 2012. Instead there are tens of thousands you die in firearm incidents each year in the US an many more injured.
Here are the annual firearm fatalities reported in Japan annually:
2003 - 35
2004 - 17
2005 - 10
2006 - 2
2007 - 21
2008 - 10
2009 - 7
2010 - 11
2011 - 8
2012 - 4
An average of 12.5 per year for the past 10 years. A person's chance of being killed by firearms in the US is more than 1,000 times that of someone in Japan. In 2012, not a single person was killed by a firearm in Tokyo.”

“And when you compare these figures to those in Japan, the comparison is remarkable. According to the National Police Agency of Japan, for all of 2012, for the entire country of Japan, there were 28 cases of gunfire. In total 4 people were killed and another 12 were injured (page 25 of http://www.npa.go.jp/sosikihanzai/yakubutujyuki/yakujyuu/yakujyuu1/h24_yakujyuu_jousei.pdf)

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department reports 4 cases of gunfire for all of 2012, no deaths, and 1 person injured (http://www.keishicho.metro.tokyo.jp/seian/kenjyuha/genjyo.htm)

The population of the US is 2.46 times that of Japan, so if the US had the same rate of gunfire deaths as Japan, there would have been 9 to 10 deaths due to gunfire in the USA for all of 2012. We haven't even gone a year since Newton and already 8,241 people are dead by gunfire. This is a result some 1,000 times as much as Japan.”

“If you are in a state where you have to go to a polling station to vote, your name has to be on the list at that polling station. Once you vote, your name is checked off and, you won't be able to vote again at that station. In order to vote hundreds of times, you would need to register at a hundred different voting precincts using different addresses. Chances are, that would be caught. Then there is the physical problem of going to a hundred different polling stations on a single day. On crowded voting days, it can take hours to vote at a single polling station. It's not going to happen and unless someone is paying you to make it worth your time to go to a hundred different polling stations, there is no benefit to anyone to vote more than once. If voting fraud that makes a difference in elections is going to happen, it will be happening behind the scenes by the people who count the votes, not the people voting.”

“Keep emailing and calling your representative in Congress regarding the NSA spying on citizens. It works. After bugging my congressman's office for several weeks, an aide called back last week to say that there is an investigation in Congress regarding the lies James Clapper told to Congress. I'd been contacting my congressman's office repeatedly regarding James Clapper's lies. At first all I got back were the congressman's form letters expressing his concern with the NSA, but after repeated calls asking specifically about what the congressman felt about James Clapper I got a call back where I was informed about the investigation.

Though I have my doubts about the investigation. My hunch is that it is a group of lawyers looking for the right legal semantics to claim that James Clapper was telling the truth when he lied, I did get a response and was able to discuss my concerns at length with the congressman's aide.

I'm going to keep calling and voicing my concerns. If even ten thousand citizens across the nation kept pressure on their representatives in Congress, things would change. It only takes a few dedicated people to bring about significant change. Moping that nothing will change and there's no point in saying anything, will guarantee that nothing will change.”

“The 4th amendment says this regarding warrants: "and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." The president and others make a point that the NSA is not listening to phone calls, which may be true. The NSA is just recording a billion phone calls a day so that if they want to, in the future they can listen to a phone call that comes to their attention. Yet, the 4th amendment says the government does not have the right to seize something unless a court issues a specific warrant based on probable cause. "Uh, we might need to listen to anyone's phone call at some time in the future," is no basis for seizing the recordings of billions and billions of phone calls. What the NSA is doing is criminal.

Perhaps they have some "warrant" issued in secret by the secret NSA court, so they can claim they did everything legally, but any sane reading of the 4th amendment, any interpretation of the 4th amendment in an open court, would consider what the NSA is doing is criminal.

The 4th amendment specifies that "no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

7 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Eggs

7 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Eggs

Commented Jun 20, 2013 at 20:14:53 in Healthy Living

“The best eggs come from chickens which get lots of exercise and a varied diet including plenty of earthworms, bugs, and field mice. They are best when eaten within a few days of being laid. And if you can get eggs from such chickens, they don't need refrigeration. When hens lay and egg, their surfaces have a natural antibacterial coating, and will stay fresh at room temperature (75 degrees or less) for several weeks. I find that refrigerating eggs ruins their flavor and structure. I wouldn't trust store bought eggs, as these are most likely washed, removing this antibacterial coating.
To produce good eggs, hens also need lots of space, no more than 50 hens per acre. You will rarely be able to find eggs from hens who have that much space in stores.
In the wild, eggs are designed to stay viable for weeks. It can take that long for a hen to build up enough eggs to start incubating them. She'll wait until she has 12 or more, and then start sitting on them to incubate them. Therefore an egg must be able to stay fresh until she is ready to sit on them.
A big difference between eggs from hens which spend their days outdoors in pasture and woodlands, and those from hens from your typical egg producer, is that their yolks are denser, have a more intense flavor, and their egg whites are thicker and will whip up with ease and create souffles which won't collapse.”
