I watched a documentary about a man with the largest nuts in the world. They weighted over 60 kg (120 lb). He couldn't get help because he didn't have the money for surgery. He didn't have a job, because of that thing he had hanging down between his legs made it almost impossible for him to move.
A doctor in LA took pity upon him and did it for free, 5 years later. That made him able to return to life, work and everything.

I really, really, don't understand your system. It's... stupefying. Why pull in an unrelated third party (insurance companies) into the system at all?

Totally agree about insurance, it was a good idea when it was mutually beneficial, then accountants figured out how to game it and make a load of money. I use a doctor in San Diego who refuses to deal with insurance, cash at the time services are delivered, she is cheaper than insurance

The American left has never had it this good. It has never had two terms of an unabashed and uncompromising leftist in the White House dedicated to its agenda functioning as a dictator without the military uniform, making and unmaking laws at a whim, siccing the IRS and Federal prosecutors on political enemies and transforming the country at a breathtaking pace.

Obama is what generations of the left have dreamed of and worked toward. This is the flicker of hope they kept alive after JFK's assassination, the Nixon years, Carter's collapse and the long stretch of Reaganomics. This is what Bill Clinton robbed them of prematurely by gauging his actions against the polls instead of blasting full steam ahead regardless of what the public wanted.

The left finally has its Un-American tyranny. So why is it so angry?

Watch MSNBC or browse any left-wing site and you see a level of anger that would make you think that Al Gore had just conceded or Nixon had just won reelection. There's more anger in the privileged circles of the left than in the political rearguard of the Tea Party.

Why have speculators buy our oil? Why have bankers handle our money? Why have doctors write prescriptions? Why have the highway patrol pull over someone for not wearing a seat belt? Why not charge a fee and require permits for everything?

Sorry got carried away. Insurance is a joke. (health)

Guaranteed tender. Some very kind gentlemen brought in the railroad to give those miners and pioneers fresh beef and better blankets. In doing so created vast employment opportunities.

We should name colleges after them.

The McDonalds Coffee case continues to be reported incompletely and portrays something that isn't factual.

First, note that "The trial judge reduced the final verdict to $640,000, and the parties settled for a confidential amount before an appeal was decided." The jury did conclude she should get millions, but she never did. Had I been on the jury, I would have done the same!

For the full story (it's interesting and worth the read) check out this wiki page (where I got the above quote from). I have seen photos of the burns on her thighs and they were heinous. HEINOUS. She was one that had multiple grafts for these burns. McDonalds was served with several suits before the famous one and settled many for the same reasons. The complete story isn't as 'sexy' as the two liner most people bandy about, but at least it's factual.

Then came the waxen Obama soaring on hope and change, the president who would remake the world along the lines envisioned in a college faculty lounge or a Chicago organizing session. Obama was not a Buchananite isolationist who would be easy for Europeans to caricature. Rather, he is a postmodern, postracial progressive, who deeply felt either that traditional U.S. alliances were not worth the commitment, or that the U.S. was properly moving away from its European heritage and thus without any need for special trans-Atlantic relationships, or that an internationally engaged America came at the expense of dollars better spent on redistributive entitlements at home — or all three and more still.

The result is that the Europeans are increasingly bewildered if not a little anxious. They cannot reduce Obama, a man of the Left, to a caricatured Texan who often misunderstands the world, because Obama is an Ivy Leaguer who has never yet understood it.

They cannot whine about American ubiquity, because Obama agrees with their rhetoric that the U.S. should recede from the world stage. They cannot out-left America, because Obama is to the left of almost all the European leaders. And they cannot offer any more sermons about being patient with the world’s aggressors, because Obama is not so much patient as uninterested. Without an engaged U.S., Bashar Assad, Vladimir Putin, the Chinese Communists, Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovych, the unhinged North Koreans, and radical Islamists could not care less about what the E.U. thinks or about the consequences of its much-hyped soft power. In sum, Europe cannot play Athens when there is no longer a Rome to back it up. The result is a sort of sad update of Stalin’s thuggish but instructive rhetorical question to French Foreign Minister Pierre Laval when the latter in 1935 suggested that the Soviets reach out to the Catholic hierarchy in order to thwart Hitler: “The Pope? How many divisions has he got?”
