Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

I heard on the news an hour ago a woman in PA is out protesting today, she went to see what it will cost and went from $200 a month for her family to just under $1000 - she said she will have to decide between insurance (which she currently has) and feeding her family.

Ironically, the very type of story that was used to sell 0-Care to the public is the type of situation it is creating.

Yes, and I'd find it funny if it wasn't so damned pathetic.
