"When someone who is uninsured has the symptoms of a disease they go to the emergency room and receive treatment."
And sit and wait for hours upon hours? Only after they are very, very sick. Before that point how many folks have been exposed to it, including their family, friends, passersby and possibly you?
The world is getting to be a much smaller place, my friend. Our fates are much more intertwined that you can possibly imagine.
i really wouldn't call the ten commandments "two steps back" compared to thomas watson. it doesn't have any place on a government monument, but it isn't as bad as a statue of a racist psychopath.
just get a couple of representatives to vote some catholic or mormon stuff on there and this proposal will drop like a hot potato.

What many folks don't realize is the role that universal health coverage plays in reducing the severity of epidemics. When someone who is insured has the symptoms of a disease they will go to the doctor and receive treatment. If they don't they often put off treatment until the disease gets worse and spreads to other folks. Expanding Medicaid and private insurance coverage is not only compassionate it is also prudent.
What? An honest man in the House? If this trend caught on how would we Cassandras / Menckens fill our days?
Mo gibs muh 'dat.
One step forward, two steps back.
Killin it. So damn sexy
Hey "Here's Your Editorial", what does Dale Earnhardt Junior have to do with this article?
I would bet Don Balfour chews with his mouth open and sweats profusely the entire time. Then he asks the state for a reimbursement after you pick up the tab.
Paying to have dinner with Bubba McDonald... ugh, just ugh. The only thing that could be worse is the thought of paying to spend time with Ralph Hudgens. Don Balfour?
Since my state rep is Tyrone Brooks, can one cross district borders and sign Mr. Bozarth's petition... if one's current Ga. House rep is under indictment? Special conditions and such?
For further context, @tater.salad, this post was specifically about the hip-hop influenced visual arts scene in Atlanta. That doesn't make it "black" or "white" or "yellow" art, but hip-hop is a culture so I don't feel I'm marginalizing those artists by talking about the scene within that scope. Thanks for the disclaimer @Gorge_jr., but I wonder would you find it necessary if I was a white writer writing about "white people"?

"And now I have even more of a reason to totally ignore you well into perpetuity."
I look forward to your perpetual silence.
If only he'd continued to throw strikes the way he tweets.
I know Kombo. He's a stand up guy and would not use this element in a piece because he thought it would result in monetary advantage.
Look at the two pieces. Is the second a rip-off of the first?
If this is inappropriate, then 90% of hip hop is inappropriate...most of the blues. You can Biz Markie him, Honey, if you can show monetary loss...or you could be proud you have influenced the scene.
Wow! Look what I missed...didn't miss anything I was at the beach. I burned gas to get there! I'm so ashamed.
No way I'm slogging through these comments now but I will chime in with my sober reflection from all those years ago....
That is all....
At-large voting is a crock and a crime when it's conducted this way. Get rid of it, you two bit Tennessee Williams character wannabe county pols! I've always felt this way. At large is cool for a commission chairman or other offices, but the body that makes local law must be constructed with direct representation.
Can we enjoy this rare harmony, brother?
Also...sugar subsidies and protection have long been outrageous crimes against the public committed by the gummint that is spozed to be ensuring a fair and free market. And how about the feds simultaneously conducting a war on sugar and propping it up with the biggest sweetheart program this side of ethanol? Ain't that weird?
If it is John Rocker writing the tweets they are pretty good.
