  tpstar: Thanks everybody for the birthday wishes!

Thank you wives. =)

Nov-20-13  HeMateMe: Think of ALL those new patients, with Obamacare in place. You must be too excited to sleep, I would imagine?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: If you like your Obamacare, you can keep it. Period.

With these outrageous deductibles - $2,000 Single, $6,000 Family - Obamacare patients will be cash pay throughout 2014. I will need a big room in my office for all that money, then I will sit on the floor and throw my money up in the air all day. Oh wait, that's what I do now.

Nov-20-13  HeMateMe: If an early stage diabetic (who wasn't poor enough or old enough for welfare) finds out how to manage their illness and get affordable insulin,instead of it progressing to the point where they show up at the ER for amputation, then the Affordable Healthcare Act is a success.

Grasshopper need to learn origami, turn one dollar bills to pawns, five dollar bills to knights and bishops, ten dollar bills to rooks, and fifties to queens and Franklins to kings.


Nov-23-13  Caissanist: I don't know about Michigan, but here in California the price/performance seems to work out about the same as what I am already paying for COBRA. I could pay a little less than my existing policy (which has a $350 deductible) and get the $2,000 deductible you refer to. Or, I could pay a little more and get a zero deductible. As best as I can tell, the main difference is that I'll still have the option of buying insurance on the open market when my COBRA expires.

I got a great birthday present when our K-3 team won First Place at the state championship last weekend. All from excellent coaching, of course. =)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Congrats <tpstar>. Since you're a doc, will the kids be tested for steroids?

And this Wildfong guy, is he really 'wild'?!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Hi, TP ... you didn't really direct that movie documentary about Leonard Cohen, did you?

It's a good film, but you were less than ten years old when it was made...

Reason's Secretings, as my friend <mack> would say...

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Domdaniel> Correct, *that* TPstar is not *the* tpstar. I heartily avoid dabbling in British cinema due to the language barrier.

Please tell <mack> to stop beening an alcoholic.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <tpstar> Heh, thanks. I expect to see Morgan soon, so I'll talk to him then...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Hey, TP, you're on a roll...
