I'm hoping the requirement to have health insurance starts sooner rather than later because I'm looking forward to three years in prison.

Not only it is three years where I don't have to support myself, but once I'm released by job prospects will significantly improve with felon status.

I call shenanigans.

Hey, the state finds you a job when you're a released felon.

As a law-abiding college-educated white man I can't even get an interview at McDonalds or Walmart.

That's because you're educated and employers think you can find another job better suited to your education.
Of course we both know that's BS. My ex studied criminal justice and couldn't find anyone hiring for that so she started looking for other jobs...finally got a crappy job at Walmart. That was 2 years ago and nothing good has come up since then.

It's more because in a metropolitan area of about 300,000 workers there are currently around 74,000 on unemployment rolls.

I have friends who are managers at Blockbuster (husband and wife with a year old kid and their stores are closing this month) and before they got word that they were closing they were having THOUSANDS of applications for part-time positions.

Blah, I'm struggling to get a 3.0 for the year. :[

Errrr...what I MEANT to say was something that actually contributed to the topic for a change. Something like how Dhampy can't find a job at Walmart or McDonalds because he is overqualified and they would rather hire people who would stay there because they can't possibly find a job elsewhere which would pay them more.

Now the Canadians are out calling us *****es.

Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if 307 million people weren't going to be appointed to the government regulated hospitals. Private practices are going to close! It's going to turn into a DMV that can kill you!

**** Canadians right now. They don't even know.

(Not you yosup, and or any other Canadian chu members that really are saying anything about the reform.)

EDIT

The biggest thing I hate about my personality is that when I'm slammed against something I try to stand for, I feel wrong. Am I then only one like this or..?

I only feel that way if I'm arguing for something that I don't know anything about.

Like someone's going to poke holes in my argument because I don't know how to adequately support my view.
