bs, not cool. who's next?
Can internet use be governmentally(?) tracked for time useage so we can all be taxed by our time spent online. Imagine the bandwidth that could be freed up if people weren't uploading untold hours of video to YouTube because of the hit they'd take in taxes. Think of how much more efficient and productive America would become if all of the people with access to the internet were actually working instead because they couldn't afford to surf the a$$ thread.
Taxes of this nature should be applied as liberally as possible, no?
yes to your first question, easily done. hell this site keeps track of your time on here and all sorts of other stuff. in some places around the world you pay as you go.

Same goes for obesity as a result of over eating and not exercising, (excluded should be medical and genetic reasons for obesity). Also should be included in this category , people who are non compliant and then they suffer even more complications of their disease. One example is an amputation of a foot of a NON COMPLIANT diabetic patient. His surgery should NOT be covered by his health insurance. THESE are the people who are the main cause of rising health care costs for the rest of the nation although not the only cause but a significant cause.
do you like litigation?
So after we kill all these people we can bury them in a mass grave, thus not cutting down any trees for individual gravesites, coffins, etc and lowering the greenhouse gas emissions (because they won't be breathing, either) in addition to lowering insurance costs for the rest of us.
I would think in your line of work that you probably deal with actual doctors at some point. Maybe you should ask THEM - I know several personally and ALL agree the main cause of rising costs are insurance premiums (can anyone say BAILOUT?). Actual insurance payouts are a minimal part of the equation.
It's a vicious circle.
Oh, and I'm sure the diabetic WANTED to have his foot chopped off. Moron.
This type of stuff is why politicians need to STFU at times. The Law of Unintended Consequences [apparently the only law besides gravity to actually work in the past eight years] is going to provide surprises and ramifications.
As an example:
Drink More Diet Soda, Gain More Weight?
Just google diet cola weight gain and you will get the picture.
and other stuff related to fake sugars
What is overweight anyway? Shit based on BMI bullshit I would be considered obese. So now what? I get taxed more because I am beefy. this is bs
I second that one. This country wouldn't be in half of the shitstorm it's in if politicians actually did their jobs and ran the government in the best interests of the friggin PEOPLE THAT ELECTED THEM!!
they just need to stay out of our personal business.
As I have stated before, the years that I rode 5000-7000 miles per year on my bike and weighed 220# and could easily ride 200 miles in any given 15 hour period, I was still considered 33 pounds overweight by the BMI charts and my insurance company.
It was only after I threatened to ride from Lex to Indy, come to their office and strip down and let them find any fat that they left me alone.
While I couldn't make that same threat now, the BMI charts are still based on averages and don't take into account different body types or muscle mass.
i hope it's not wellpoint: drifting off topic
i can't recall where i read this originally unfortunately, it was better but this one will do.
^^yes please don't threaten to strip, thanks
santa's sexy, no? lol
hehehehe, maybe I should
oh god, NO.
jody on the other hand...
