    When I was a Special Ops guy I of course would have been opposed to females in combat roles . Now that I am old I have to rethink it . It would have kind of been nice at times to send someone to do laundry and get sandwiches .

    So all you have to do in order to defeat this is vary your grip while doing this: Or you could just borrow someone else's phone. Or use a one-time "burner." In other words: this won't do a damn thing to catch "terrorsts" or crooks. But it certainly might be useful in compiling even more extensive dossiers on "normal" people who don't have anything to worry about because they haven't done anything wrong ...

    I thought everything was awesome again? We should blame the entire group for "being financially irresponsible" during the Great Recession that STILL has not ended, while simultaneously saying that it has.

    The whole point of the article is to say that "saving money is hard". For 40% of Americans, saving money is impossible because the cost of everything continues to go up and low wages do not. Next, look at where the blame is pointed. A lot of people will blame people like Angela for not saving "enough" and try to say she is fully responsible for her own predicament. Not you or me, but there are a LOT of people out there who will blame victims of circumstance. Angela's predicament, even if she did save, is caused by drug companies charging $40,000 for a single drug, which that same drug in Canada costs $40 bucks and NONE of that money went to research. Link to that article here. We should prepare as best as we can, but there are limits to how much we can prepare. Insurance is supposed to help for situations like this, but look at the cost of both insurance and health care. You pay insurance but insurance has a bad habit of trying to not pay ANY bills at all. For Angela's situation, how much ability would her husband have to try to fight insurance companies in court after a stroke? The way insurance companies operate is predatory on those who are not able to defend themselves. If Angela's husband had not been married to Angela, he would be up shit creek without a paddle. Medical Care costs are also thru the roof. The cost of education is through the roof. The cost of living in general is through the roof. Really what is happening is not that the costs are rising, but the value of money is decreasing. The costs increasing are symptomatic of the value of the dollar, and represents exactly why Fiat Currency is a clear and present danger to society. The way that many companies handle the situations is to twist problems to blame victims and get victims to blame themselves in a way that benefits the companies, not individuals. For Angela's situation, again, she would be shown to the world as being responsible for her own problems because "she didn't buy enough insurance", when really its the insurance companies and the cost of health care that profit from Angela's situation. They put her in Checkmate, and no matter what she did or does, her situation falters through no fault of her own. I have a few disagreements with Angela, but overall, I understand that her situation is terrible through no fault of her own. I know for a fact she is the type of person to prepare for herself as best as she can and to the absolute best of her ability. Strokes happen. Her situation should be limited to coping with the situation only from a medical care perspective, but is exacerbated by the financial, time, and stress costs of that medical care to the point where surviving medically could ruin her financially, which leads us right back to square one, the title of this thread. So lets be clear here. Prepare. How does one "prepare"? Do they spend ALL their money on Health Insurance? Maybe the average person is blamed for "living beyond their means" when a single bedroom apartment now costs (here) $1500 a month and the average pay is $10 an hour? Lets blame the victim again for "not getting an education", an education that costs $50,000 and makes $30,000 a year. Can you say Teacher? I knew you could. Can you say that situation is quite normal? To be expected to be in financial dire straights and crushed by overwhelming debt to afford that education that qualifies a person only for low paying jobs? This is a new class of poverty known as "The Educated Poor". Now, take that average person who is $50,000 in debt, earning $30,000 a year, and trying to pay $1500 for a one bedroom apartment? 30k a year only provides 2500 a month BEFORE taxes, and if rent is $1500, that is well above the recommended 25% of income should be spent on housing. Now lets add in the rest of the bills. $1000 a month for health insurance. That number is also pretty average when insurance is not offered by employers. Ooops, that person...

    If you mean the gospels, not likely. The scribes of the Gospel narrative would've been dead by the time the Gospels were written down. Mark wasn't written till ~40 AD, Matthew ~70, etc. We also have multiple authentic copies of each Gospel.

    oic. But the Western diet is also LOADED with sugar and preservatives, which we know without a doubt makes people (and animals) fat. It's in everything. :eek: Gotta take that into consideration too when you make any sweeping comment on the SAD diet.

    Not really. There's nothing in eggs that triggers the kind of response that causes heart disease (inflammation). Eggs just offer us a useful and important macronutrient(fat) and litany of micronutrients(vitamins). I know this to be fact because I have a great interest in sport nutrition. Eggs are a dietary staple for all manner of athletes for a reason.

    Have you ever had zucchini hash browns? SO GOOD! :D There are different ways to make them out there, but fundamentally they're just eggs, zucchini, onions, and some spices browned in a skillet. (that's the way I learned, at least)

    The percentage of rich people in any country represent the past economic opportunities. The percentage of Middle Class people in any country represent the future economic opportunities. What that means is that the rich got rich because opportunity had existed. Those people climbed ladders, up to a middle class, and continuing on to rich status. The Middle Class represents the future. If there is no Middle Class, then in the future, there will be fewer rich people. It also represents a lack of opportunity. Our Middle Class is gone. The cost of our educational and medical systems are so high that they have become barriers to even staying where you are. That debt is holding back the Millennials from buying houses, cars, and starting families. People are still dropping out of the Middle Class because of skyhigh costs of everything that no one can afford. Drugs that cost $40 in Canada cost $40,000 here, and none of that money went to drug research. We are experiencing another Housing Boom that no one seems to notice. The good paying non disposable jobs that pay enough to enable a person to stay in the Middle Class are almost non existent. Our education has become Job Training instead of a form of affordable learning. We have a legal system that authorizes plunder, and a moral system that glorifies it. If we continue our current course, we wont just experience an economic crash, we will become the laughing stock of the world until the end of eternity, just as Rome at its end spiraled out of control. Our Money System has been replaced several times, off of the Gold Standard, allowing fractional reserve lending, and other lesser mentioned events, such as repealing Glass Steagall Act, and blurring the lines between Investment Banking and Investment Banking. Wall Street is Gambling for the rich. Hell, even the definition of a Corporation is Personal Profit without Personal Responsibility.
