Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: fantastical
Hi, KAT!!! Nice to meet you! I'm sort of the same way. I call myself a right-of-center moderate a lot just to save time, but I'm a bit scatterbrained on many issues. I usually do take...

Re: Re: Kat?
No humor. I'll try to be explicit: I am not seeing any posts from Kat or Katrina on the past few pages of this thread. Way back at the beginning I see a couple from Katharina, but that's ...

Kat?
But where is 'Kat' posting? I'm not seeing any posts, here. That's what I'm saying. Or is this sort of like when I call Rog out, even when he isn't posting?

@ ">>>single insurer, multiple, the result is the same-- declining services, higher deductibles, etc. can all decrease the cost. Don't be fooled by lower premiums alone." ...

Re: Re: Re: Re: How many times must I tell you that it is subsidized?

Re: Re: Re: How many times must I tell you that it is subsidized?
"That's how insurance works." Absolutely, that's how insurance works. And there are different ways to do insurance- one being actuarial as you mentioned. But if we do that th...

Re: Re: How many times must I tell you that it is subsidized?
@ "Let's assume services don't decline and we have a single insurer." A heck of an assumption- it's not a single insurer. The insurance companies are now (finally) being ...

How many times must I tell you that it is subsidized?
@ "Sorry Dean but I'm not talking civil liberties, contract law, or specific instances." OK, I'll call BS on that one. You have in fact "talked" all of those. @ &...

If it were any other contract that might be a cogent argument. But it isn't. They do benefit- they get insurance coverage in case they get sick. Statistically (since you used that word) even...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: fantastical
Ah, yes. I was wondering when this argument would come up: "Forcing people to buy something that they don't need." From a personal liberties point of view, it isn't a bad argume...

Mary Jane's Farm Sante Fe Pasta
I just got back from a Wind River Range traverse in which I tried a couple of Mary Jane's Farm meals for the first time- I had never heard of them- and I'm impressed. Fist, my caveat: I hav...

Bushnell SolarWrap Mini
Very light, but lost points for a smaller battery capacity than competitors and for durability concerns. And, shouldn't we really have an Electronic category in Gear Reviews at this point? Put...

Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide -Andrew Skurka book
Wow, how to rate this book? It is NOT meant for someone who is already an experienced UL hiker. There is nothing in this book that someone like that doesn't already know or can find out in fiv...

Klepper Double wood framed folding kayak
I own a Long Haul Mark 2, which is a copy of the Klepper Double. Though the fasteners vary very slightly the Klepper frame can use the Long Haul hull-skins and vice versa. The guy who builds the Lon...

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
