ACA might actually succeed if given an honest chance and some good oversight. The future is never certain on brand new laws. However, what is certain is that a government can’t give services to citizens if a cult of law-makers work outside the bounds and act in concert to murder ACA.

I remember my mother saying early into WWII people didn't know if America could even win. The early losses against the Axis powers (Kasserine Pass, Pearl Harbar, Bataan) demonstrated America was not infallible. My mother said she would walk to school and she recalled the time she saw the first gold star in a window. That meant a son was killed. And then she saw more and more and the months went by.

There are many celebrities who cannot resist the call of getting married a second time - and a third - and a fourth - but these in our list were all chosen because they learned something from each marriage, and perhaps their growth can help us all to improve.
My story in Depression Symptoms Decoded: I saw the black pickup round the curve in the distance. Its tires didn't squeal. The vehicle was traveling normally between the lines. It looked. well. it lookedsafe.<br/>
My old dog, Bandit, walked over and sat in the ditch and waited for the truck to pass us.
I got Bandit from the pound as a puppy and now he was ancient; a collie mix of some sort. He loved to walk with me. So it was just me and an old dog alone in the middle of nowhere Texas. Continue reading →
