Old monthly premium: $578 for a family of four (non-smoking, helmet-wearing, and paternally snipped). New premium: $1,123. A 94% increase.
The website allowed me to find a plan that looked reasonable. Premera Blue Cross had a Preferred Bronze 5500 for $889 a month. Okay. Not so bad. Downside: $3,600 more in annual premiums. Upside: Free eyeglasses for the boy!
That only got him so far. At a certain point in the conversation, the accountant/lawyer had to get off the phone. “I have to stop answering your questions,” he told Peter. “I can’t ethically advise you, because honestly I don’t know the right thing to do.

You were warned; so enjoy.
Ever notice that the balance of nature seems to consist of Ma deciding "I'll throw a rock in this side this time"? Or "They want greenhouse gases, I'll give them that and some new land in the bargain!"
Another choirboy sadly cut down: "Just because he's an armed robber and had a gun to somebody's head and pointed it at someone else, there was no need to shoot him!" Etc.

First the crap at Duke University, now this; what the hell is going on in Durham?
A good Democrat:
The name Levar Stoney may not ring a bell to many in Wisconsin, but the new Secretary of the Commonwealth of Virginia and former Deputy Campaign Manager for Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe has some scandalous history in Wisconsin.
In 2004, Levar Stoney was involved in covering up and lying for five Democratic campaign operatives who slashed the tires of 25 vans rented by the Republican Party for get out the vote efforts.
He's an academic, so this kind of racism and self-hate(except he's a GOOD one, so he's exempt I'm sure) is considered just fine.
And what feminism has become to far too many:

Many who call themselves feminists have now become a toxic force in our society, quashing free speech, deeming rational thought a form of discrimination, and institutionalizing discrimination against men...all in the name of "equality."
