I love comment posts

I'm actually right with you (e:dcoffee)

I just loved the line "ultimately force you into an entirely government-run plan" Really? I just love how people love to make the government the boogie man. Seriously, at this point can it be really much worse than what we have now? The bookies that run the insurance companies? Really that's what they are all they do is take in the premiums and just make sure that they keep their "Vig" like some guy booking football keeps his 10% of the action.

Not to be influenced by Michael Moore but Sicko really did it for me. As it's just freaking sick that people get hosed for $10,000 for a non approved ambulance ride & have to choose what finger they want to save. But God bless our capitalist non Government run health care system which given Americans the right to poverty through bankruptcy. Because it's just such more uplifting to have some finance guru douche bag making your health care choices than some government bureaucrat.

If this falls flat on it's face which is a possibility I will always love my Mom for giving me the BIRTHRIGHT of health care by having me in Canada. Which really is always my backup plan if things ever fell apart for me. I'd be over the border so fast waiting me 3 weeks for a OHIP card in St. Catherine's it would be sick.

What gets me is "How are we going to Pay for it?" I don't know but seriously at this point we are past whatever pain threshold we ever may have had as a country it just doesn't matter. After the Bailouts and Stimulus plans it's like we just decided to go for broke at the Casino, there's no sense in stopping now all in the name of fiscal responsibility.

The only thing I can compare it is if you ever went to a Casino with say $100 to spend and you blew it even though you were careful and still wanted to play, then you hit the ATM once, Then Maxed out your card AGAIN after midnight when you had a fresh daily limit to blow.Then after you totally hit yourself in the head against the wall you hit up your credit card for a cash advance. At this point you may still have room on your one card or you may have another card to hit and drain. I'm not sure were we are but I'd have to say we're on the credit cards now. At this point stopping when you're down 3,000 isn't going to be that much different than if you stopped at 4,500.*

  • I've never blown money like the above paragraph, but I have witness it many times first hand.

They are everywhere

(e:paul)

You forgot about these other protesters down North Street!

But I have to say they were clearly Non-Christian more political or in actuality the classification belonging to "Peace" protesters.

I'm mouring in a strange way

I had a pretty good day off today. I went to my Dr's to get an annual checkup which oddly enough turned into a 15 minute therapy session, which I won't get into detail here. Then I hit up the NYSIM on Transit for a massage which I'm still glowing from even though I thought I felt pretty good this morning. After that I just walked up and down Elmwood stopping in Starbucks for a quick cold tea and read the paper a little bit. Well I read the Buffalo News and saw an obit for a young woman that was murdered in Lockport & didn't think anything of it. Well being that I just rejuvenating my body & that I spent some money today & just decided to take it easy.

Then being the person with no love life that I am I go home and check an online dating service that I belong to, still have a profile on and kind of wonder why I even bother having it up. Well I just was going through the people who viewed my profile & realize that the victim looked at me back on Feb 14th!

There are some things that really jump out at you in what she wrote and how she phrased them that in knowing what we all know, it's kind of really really frightening to say the least. I really don't want to link to things as the last thing the family needs is to worry about creepy internet guys trying to get a date with a woman that has passed on.

But it's just totally weird as the only reason why I notice it was the picture that was used in the news stories and the obit was the same one she used on the site.

She obviously didn't see anything in my & I can't fault her for that but right now I'm kind of freaked out by the whole experience. I wish I had the opportunity to meet even if things did go awkward. It just brings the whole tragedy to an odd place as my only relationship was through some dating site of which we never meet or exchanged communication.

Needless to say I'm a bit weirded out right about now & feel extra bad after realizing this fact as I did feel pretty horrible about reading hearing the news of this violent death of a person that had only the most wholesome intentions of helping troubled kids...

I'm hungry watching this

I so wished we had a place like this around here in Buffalo.



I guess the Wegman's deli on Alberta Dr will just have to do.

the tonight show

I don't know how I feel about it so far. To be honest I really liked Jay , Kevin and even at the very end Stuttering John. For the last few years I really haven't even watched Conan as much as I did back in the day. But to see Andy Richter back kind of gave me a warm fuzzy feeling as it is akin to brining back Ed McMahon from really back in the day.

Psychic from Spaceballs?

This guy is on Coast to Coast Am tonight



Although at the same time the guy's website looks like something done by the people from Heaven's Gate




I have to listen becuase I don't know if I can take this guy seriously, I mean he looks like he's wearing a "helmet" from the movie Spaceballs! If he could predict the lottery winning numbers I would be so down with him no matter what he looked like or wore, but come on!

Came to this conlcusion a long time ago

It's scary the shit that you can come across on CL. I realized a long time ago that chasing after the "Hot" girls in this area only leads to trouble. What he does say is so true, as there are so many cloistered women in Lewiston that just never venture out anywhere.




There are some hot girls in Buffalo, but anyone who has traveled knows that we are deprived and have more than our fair share of fatties. Attractive girls would be better represented day-to-day if SUNY-Buffalo wasn't so far removed from downtown. While the student body there isn't stellar and didn't even make PopCrunch's definitive list of hottest schools (http://www.popcrunch.com/hottest-student-bodies-top-50-universities-ranked-by-looks/), there have to be several thousand hot girls within a student body in the tens of thousands - it's just a matter of large numbers.

The issue I find is that there's an accessibility issue with the hotter girls here - they're normally from better families and don't go out on Chippewa. Sure, there's a certain type of girl that goes out on chippewa, normally over-tanned, over-dyed and so on, and I'm not disputing that those types are hot, but they're a very small percentage of the hot girls in Buffalo. Because they're the most visible, though, they get TONS of attention and have adamantium bitch-shields that require exquisite game to penetrate. And forget relationships; these girls are dumb as fuck, a direct consequence of a lifetime of using physical charms to entice lesser, desperate men to do their bidding, and only good for a fuck-and-chuck. But they are smart enough to realize the pattern of being pumped and dumped in their life, and they develop defenses against it, making it more difficult to seduce them. As for the other hot girls, they're difficult to find because nobody knows them - their families generally steered them away from the Buffalo colleges and sent them to better schools on the east coast. These girls then got sucked back into Buffalo like so many do, especially in this economy, and don't know anyone. As a result they're normally eating with their parents at the Buffalo Club, Saturn Club or any of the suburban country clubs, occasionally connecting with their old classmates for wine and bitch sessions about how they can't meet suitable men. Indeed, they can't meet suitable men, at least suitable for their families - is some noble electrician out at 67 West going to hold a whit against some girl who wants to talk with someone who similarly spent a year backpacking in eastern europe after college? Is she really going to be impressed with some 20-something paper jockey earning less than $30,000 with a degree from a college she wouldn't consider applying to? Absolutely not. So they band together, lamenting the men they can't find and complaining about the inadequate dating experiences with the people they do meet.

Meanwhile, there are eligible men in Buffalo, but they often make the mistake of going after the same visible hot girls as every other dude. In fact, they're hurting their own chances because they have vastly higher IQs than their targets and can't relate to them. It's saddening to see the number of educated people who chose to stay in Buffalo - accountants, industrial designers, lawyers, doctors - chasing after the stereotypical hot girl who they know will bore them and subsequently curse themselves for not getting her, only to settle for someone less attractive and only marginally more interesting. Ultimately, the marginally interesting and utterly unremarkable girl pressures the man to join the social clubs she thinks she should be a part of. After all, she "landed" a young professional - something she should be proud of, despite how little competition she had. And then, at dinners at the Saturn Club or other events, these men start seeing the women who were futilely hoping to meet them. By then, though, it's normally too late; both groups were pushing thirty and hastily settled into unpleasant marriages, leaving them with the decision to either cheat or divorce. A sexual dystopia results, and Buffalo perpetuates its reputation for being an awful place to date.
