What the heck movie did this guy see??? "True Superman fans will sense the authenticity not seen in a Superman effort since perhaps the original writers came up with the concept," doesn't even describe the LACK of authenticity. Even the Supersuit is wrong. "It doesn't bow to the alter of political correctness. " excuse me? Jenny Olson? A black Perry White? Clark Kent was never the angst ridden kid who didn't know who he was, that was Bruce Wayne. Clark Kent was that midwestern consverative kid who grew up with the powers to do great things, for Truth, Justice, and the American way, not someone who had to figure out why he was sent to Earth. Why was not important. What was important was who the Kent's raised him to be. He has one Dad. And his name wasn't Jack. His father sent him to Earth to save him from the Krypton's destruction. Martha and Jonathan Kent raised him to be one of us.
"The 3rd party payment system is perhaps the most potent driver of runaway healthcare spending. Without any restraint on spending, largely because individuals are disconnected from the costs of their healthcare, patients routinely expect tests and procedures that may be unnecessary simply because someone else is paying the bill." This is BS. Believe me I have no urge to go to the doctor's office or hospital, and get poked, prodded, punctured, or sampled. I want my physician to have performed the tests deemed necessary to make a good diagnosis of my problem. And only those. I see the problem as a Hospital one. When I had a lithotrypsy for my kidney stones the hospital quoted me a fee of of $24,000. When the insurance paid them, it was $2400.

Price of Obama's 'College Affordability'

The problem of college is not funding for the poor, but expenses for the middle class. When your budget is balanced and there is no spare cash, $750 for tuition and another $500 for books per semester is unaffordable. And that is for community college. Yet we make too much for Pell grants. Stuck in the middle, squashed by both sides.
