With until the cops start getting the bills for repairing and maintaining those military vehicles.
This was a feel good thing based on the Massachusetts model. Once Massachusetts forced people to have insurance it wasn't working. People weren't signing up. Why? Most people who can afford insurance already have it. Those who don't have can't afford it. However, once the law was implemented wait times to see a doctor went from several weeks to literally 6 months. The medical establishment would have you think it was because of more people being insured. The dirty little secret however was something much sinister. The law also forced them to accept Mass Care - the poor peoples state insurance. Prior to the law most providers would not accept it. If they got paid at all it would take forever and was for less than the bill. Unlike normal insurance they could not force the patient to cover anything the insurance didn't. Rather than taking a chance on a new patient being covered by Mass Care they would either say they weren't taking new patients or give them an appointment so far in the future the person would go somewhere else. This was even before the state raised to fine from 200 to 600 for being uninsured. As for the fine it's really a tax on poor people. My friend who was on unemployment and making 450 a week got a quote of 650 per month for insurance that basically only covered ER and hospital stays for her and her daughter. Of course who can afford 650 a month on a 450 a week income. Where is the money supposed to come from? House payment, car payment, utilities, food?
Unless your doctor can bill you for the call it's unlikely you'll get one.
Dressing modestly don't seem to work for women in some of the Middle Eastern countries like Egypt where women get attacked on the street amongst crowds. Believe or not there are many young girls and women (of course) who purposely dress provocatively. I assume it is to get attention. That is no reason to get attacked however. Our mostly Judeo/Christian society is flawed when it comes to the body especially women's. It's supposed to be something dirty - unclean and needs to be hidden. The body is considered forbidden fruit which seems to be instinctively attractive to people. As far as the ads are concerned... they seem to be getting attention. This site is full of ads and many lead to scammer products. Many give you that popup asking if you are sure you want to leave the page when you try to close the browser. Only crooks do that.
$10.10 an hour in the USA buys you a place on a park bench.
Good article yet this and most other articles are just diverting people from the core problems in this country which are at the root of everything else. Greedy corporations with the help of their paid lackeys (politicians and government regulators) were allowed to decimate the manufacturing base. Sorry folks, but selling each other computers, smartphone, clothing, and fast food hamburgers imported from overseas will simply spiral our country down to 3rd world status with bills at first world status.
Girls aren't into the band guys like they used to be.
What US economy? Are you talking about the one that sells each other imported from China goods? Or is it the fast food?
How nice... The government allows foreigners to invade our country and apparently reward them for their efforts. Along with institutions. The government allows corporations to offshore jobs at an extent that is bankrupting cities all over the US with no penalty. At the same time they shaft the military who made the world safe for the aforementioned greedy corporations to do business without much worry over getting nationalized but el dictator. Who is pulling the strings here? It is certainly not anyone who wishes us well.

The worst thing about the data is the so-called people who dropped out of the workforce. Just because someone's unemployment insurance expired don't mean they stop looking for a job.
