If we re moving towards universal care why even have insurance companies who cost us as much as the actual care in time spent by staff and actual rates. If we just allocated any taxes made from the medical industry that s 200 billion. Add that to a 1 cent tax for every dollar earned by Americans that s another 100 billion. That s 300 billion going directly to medical care in which Americans just walk into a hospital of their choice and receive care. Obviously you d still be expected to make a $25 service fee per visit but that s to discourage abuse. So... why even have insurance companies if the government is ready to get involved?3 AnswersPolitics4 years ago

There was a fantastic DVD that I bought that had many short Science Fiction shows/movies on. It had to be between 2005-2010 and one of the episodes/movies was about a man who noticed the moon was extremely bright and because of his profession realized that a solar flare was headed to Earth and had probably wiped out the other side already and he only had till the morning before all life was wiped out. Another was about a man who was immortal and moved every 20 years so nobody caught on, but his colleagues at the college he worked wanted to send him a going away party and it turned out the oldest man there was actually the immortals son.

Lets face it, modern architecture will never be looked at as beautiful. We can forgive those buildings that are built at the lowest budget and only serve for practical purposes(They'll be torn down and replaced, anyway).
Why is there no coherent style to hallmark our era? Why is it that every architect tries to do something different, which on it on may be pleasing for awhile, but when placed amongst a city where every building has an individual style it looks like someone decorated their house through a random lottery. Every modern building is a forgettable attempt to be unique and falls flat when the new wears off.
Why is there not one beautiful style to unify a city scape and represent the modern era? Is there anyway we can kick down the school of current architects-in-training and beat the need to be different out of them?

I'm not sure when it started, probably after my first deployment. I use to be full of energy, very confident, very competitive, I loved to go out and have fun, make jokes and took pride in myself. But, for the last five years I've just given up on everything. I don't care about anything that happens. I'm never happy, but I'm never angry or sad either. I'm just drifting through life waiting for something to happen. I have no interest in sex or relationships, either. This hasn't bothered me until recently. I realized that I've been living inside for years now. I'm afraid to go outside and I don't like socializing or being seen by people. I'm a normal, some would say handsome, guy, but for some reason people make me very uncomfortable. I think uncomfortable is the only emotion I'm capable of except when I'm safe inside my apartment, where I'm comfortable.
I could go on, but I'm starting to feel like a whiner. Is there medication or something I can do to get my mind back to the focused, energetic, friendly, social, HAPPY person I once was?1 AnswerMental Health8 years ago

My Brother and I were having an interesting debate on the US policy to take care of those that refuse to live responsible lives. I think we have an interesting perspective considering our families backgrounds.
Both our Mother and Father come from very poor, backwoods families. They both had large families of six or more. Our Father's side all finished school and went to college (Except our Dad). Our Mother's side just lived in the moment. Our Dad's family had between 1-3 kids each. Our Mother's had five or more. Our Mother's side drinks, smoke and get most if not all of their income from government checks while the other side hardly drinks if at all, do not smoke and make a good living working their butts off.
The strange difference is that my Father's side is very distant and not social. They are very selfish, but good people. My Mother's side are very fun, caring people that enjoy being around each other. I actually prefer the company of my Mother's side even though they usually need money to 'get by'.
Still, I do not feel that this is a healthy nor fair system. Growing up in a very poor region, I can safely say that the amount of poor, irresponsible families is growing faster than the responsible ones and I believe it's thanks to a system that rewards poor life decisions. My Mother and Father had six kids, four girls and two boys. My Brother and I are in our thirties, and while we did not finish school we made pretty decent choices where he went on to own his own fishing boat and makes over six figures and I joined the Army, went to a trade school for welding and while not rich I do own my own house, two vehicles and have a nice savings put away. Neither of us have children but are married and planning on having maybe one or two when the time is right. On the other side, our four sisters started to have children at the age of 17 (All of them) with men that were clearly losers, and now have 14 kids amongst them all and rely entirely on government assistance to survive.
My Brother and I both tried to keep them in school, even bought a car, clothes and schools supplies for the middle two, but they all just wanted to have fun living in the moment. I kid you not, their logic was why should they go to school and work their butts off when they can just sit at home and play with their kids while they receive low income housing and have everything they need given to them by the government.
It makes me sad to know that they live in this cycle and there is nothing I can do to break it. I believe that we've created a system that has caused a codependent mentality in the poor. I think that as long as people are given the choice of working or not working and still receiving enough money to live, many will choose the latter. I believe that politicians bribe the lower income with gifts of entitlements in order to earn their vote. I do not think that politicians care if this tactic causes an economic collapse because they know they will be fine.

My truck seems to have a few issues that I think has something to do with something in the fuel management system but I'm not sure which area or even if that is the problem so I'm asking for some expert help.
1) When accelerating the truck seems to stutter then shake for awhile before it calms down. This also will pop up every few minutes
2) When idling, it will sometimes start to shake really bad even to the point I'm afraid the mirror will fall off
3) It sounds like it either isnt getting fuel or it can't breath
To me it seems like a fuel pump or injector issue but I'd like some other opinions on it before I either order the parts to replace or take it to a mechanic and have him test drive it around for money. Thanks for the help!2 AnswersFord8 years ago
What do I do with a vehicle that I bought from a private seller who never transfered the title into their name?
I bought a truck off craigslist. I noticed that the name on the notice of sale was different than the title, but I didn't think it would be an issue. Well, now I can't get the vehicle registered in my name because we can't find the owner before the person I bought it from. The vin is clean, and the person I bought it from is an older couple who just never had the 550 dollars to get it legal so they let it sit in the garage.
So what are my options If I can't find the legal owner of the vehicle? Will a dealership buy it off me? Can I get it put in my name without the owner?

I've been reading many questions on here where people seem confused as to why we have guns. They some how got it into their heads that guns are for hunting and home defense. While those are certainly legitimate reasons to own guns, our forefathers didnt give a rats *** about that. They understood that no government can remain corruption free and that from time to time, the people would need to overthrow the establishment.
So, why do kids today not know this? Why do people think the forefathers gave a rat's *** about hunting?2 AnswersGovernment8 years ago
