      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. The ones who can’t make a go of it here?

    Sounds good on paper dumb. Doesn’t work out that way in practice. Too long of waiting periods for badly needed healthcare.
  3. One was overnight because they had to put me under so I had to fast - hence the overnight wait. The second time was just a local.
  4. True for any good drs. You have to be active in your healthcare. You have to find a dr you like and will take care of you when extenuating circumstances arise. I’m sure your wife did that. My last GP took good care of me. I took care of Him too - helping him work on cars when he needed it and we went fishing together a few times. If you want people to go it of their way for you you need to reciprocate.
  5. I have. Provide a plan that provides the same service I’ve gotten at the cost -or less- to me and I’m in 100%. That includes timeliness of service.

    So those in rural areas have to pay for something that isn’t available to them in case of an emergency. That’s not fair. Everyone is entitled to the exact same services if they are forced to pay in. Why would you expect someone living hours from a hospital to pay in to a system designed to benefit those in urban areas?

    Haven’t watched the news lately have you.
  8. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    If you think government healthcare is the same as private you are ignorant or a liar.
  9. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    VA healthcare is government healthcare. No thanks.
  10. That’s not true at all. My healthcare experience has been excellent. You need to stop thinking everyone has the same personal experience as you. It would help in understand why others may have differing views as you. It helps in coming together in developing mutually beneficial resolutions to problems - problems that may be yours and not the other persons.
  11. You need to find different drs.
  12. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    If you were from a different country it would be free. You are rich so have to pay for yours.
  13. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    Selfish -ok. ignorance -no. Drives me nuts to here people talk about how expensive THEIR healthcare is but for some reason expect others -who pay just as much - to cover it. Like I said before - come up with a plan that is cheaper for me (or no more) and in 100%.
  14. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    I wouldn’t say that. You get free healthcare here. Its ok to force American citizens by law to purchase insurance and pay for illegals healthcare.
  15. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    Risk pools don’t involve members who pay nothing in. And those of higher risk pay more than those with lower risk. ACA is NOT insurance.
