    “a much better program than before we had it.”.Bull. I have yet to talk to a doctor who likes the ACA. My wife’s OB/GYN told her that he has patients that desperately need to have certain procedures done and they don’t because they cannot afford the deductibles. I am still paying off my wife’s gall bladder surgery from last year that cost me $10,000 out of pocket before all the deductibles kicked in..

    But I guess it is better for the crack addict that never held a legitimate job. My 41 year old B-I-L fits that bill. He was being chased by a cop, hopped a fence and tore open his gut. When it got infected he was able to get his health care for free. It’s good to see the “needy” are cared for. Those of us in the middle class just get hammered again..

    And I ask again, dtroutma, If what YOUR people rammed through is so much better, how come they made themselves exempt?

    Yeah, they’re looking up alright. I just got notified yesterday that my deductibles are “looking up” to the tune of $1500 each. Now in 2017 they will be $5,500/individual and $11,500/family. What a deal! I pay as much for this ACA piece of garbage as I did for my old GOOD insurance, but now that it is “affordable” I get to pay for all my health care too.

    .Tell me again …why are the President and all of Congress that passed this garbage exempt from their own poison?

    The significant difference is that, Biblically speaking, violence is not condoned by Christians and those that do so are not acting like Christians.
    Islam is different. There are 164 Jihad verses in the Qu’ran that clearly and directly speak about Jihad. Most of these passages mention a military expedition, fighting, or distributing war spoils.
    Peaceful religion indeed.

    Rationalize however you want the fact still remains that the irresponsible use of firearms leads to approximately 32,500 deaths per year. The irresponsible use of alcohol leads to 88,000 deaths per year. Better than 2.5 times more alcohol related deaths than gun related deaths. However you spin it, an irresponsible death is still a death, regardless the method. The NIAAA sites alcohol as the 4th leading PREVENTABLE cause of death in the US. Where is the outrage.
    The reason people won’t attack alcohol as the do guns is because they do not want to release their hold on their crutch. A crutch often used as they attack firearms.
    By the way, the typical alcohol used for cleaning and treating injuries is not the alcohol used for consumption.

    Then I wonder how many of those 32,500 got there courage to murder or commit suicide while looking through the bottom of a glass…

    SALUT! After all there are roughly 32,500 deaths as a result of firearms every year in this country alone and that is indeed tragic; and yet I am sure that while you down that alcohol you will be completely silent about the 88,000 deaths by alcohol in the same year.

    My answer to both your comments is: personal preference.
    As to the 4884, I prefer the smaller 282 for various reasons.
    1. To me the Mikado looks sleeker. Not too big, not too small.
    2. The 2 wheel leading and trailing trucks give it a nice balanced appearance.
    3. To me multiple sets of drivers detract from a locomotive’s appearance. I really don’t care for any of the larger locomotives with that type of configuration.
    4. The Mike was very reliable and long lived; serving well from the 1880s and well into the diesel era.

    I love my Weber grill. Nothing can beat the flavor produced when using natural briquettes with a few water-soaked wood chunks added (mesquite, apple, hickory, etc.). Great stuff!

    “Hey – how come there’s no “truth in advertising” laws during election years?”
    Because our prisons are already too overcrowded.

    And to vote for Hillary you have to be brain dead.
