Arguments

I keep telling myself, no more health care posts. These things are becoming repetitious, but...here we go again.

I have come to the realization that many of the arguments that are being put forth against health care reform are really problems with the existing system that we have.

Death Panels -- got them now. Private health insurance companies make life and death decisions based on money all the time. How many people have died because they were denied coverage even when they have insurance.

Health Care Rationing -- got it now. Again, private health insurance companies ration health care all the time. Got a pre-existing condition? You can't get insurance. Out of a job? You lose your insurance. Got insurance -- and they refuse to cover a procedure recommended by your doctor. I call all of that rationing.

Government Run Program -- New Flash!!! We got them already. What do you think Medicare and the Veterans Adminstration are? Yup! Government run programs. And you know what? Participants rate the government programs HIGHER than participants of private health insurance rate theirs.

The purpose of health care reform is to fix the very problems that the opponents of health care reform are yelling about

So...shut the f.@(k up and let us get on with the job.

  2. The Nike Air Max 1(aka Nike Air Max or Nike Air Max 87 was released in a variety of colors and fabric combinations which have given it a contempory flavor.The first retro of the Air Max 1 came in 1992. Nike used the soles of the Air Max 90 to save money on production of this shoe. Due to the mismatch of the upper to sole, this version has been in high demand to find. All of the retros in 1992 were leather, but Nike went back to its roots when it brought our the Nike Air Max 1 again in nylon versions in 1995.
    The Nike Air Max 1 has been released in more colors than any one collector has possessed.The Nike Air Max 1 is commonly used for limited releases such as for the opening of the store Atmos, Kid Robot, and there was a special one made for an Amsterdam only release.
