Well Ron, you did hit a key word - predict. It is not legal to use predictions against a person toRead More predetermine their fate. Each member of our society has a "free will." That's another key term you will find in the US Constitution. Additionally, much of the research funding was cancelled because the insurance agencies were poised to utilize the "predictions" to create a scale of risk to be used in determining premiums. (Not that they don't now try to factor such information into your premiums.) --- There exists a 'form of gun control' in practice, at the state and federal levels. And mental stability is one of the judgement areas in the process to purchase a firearm.

Obamacare SUCKS
Sandra February 5, 2014 at 10:04 am
Most of the ACA's 2000 plus pages are filled with really impressive and long-overdue reforms to theRead More $2.6 trillion dollar health care system. ObamaCare gives 30 of 44 million uninsured Americans access to health insurance. Tens of millions of us have already benefited from the ACA's improved health care services and the average family has already saved thousands on health care costs last year alone. While far from perfect, I'm thankful someone has finally had the guts to do something about our horrid healthcare system. Time and bipartisan effort (ahem) can make it work just as they did for the other programs introduced years ago which were also far from successful out of the gate.

hmmmm, aren't there more pressing issues in this world? No, I don't smoke.

Mr Bushey, are you suggesting this reporter relinquish their focus on what's important to them toRead More focus on something you find "more pressing"?

A referendum has put the controversial transgender law (AB 1266) on hold. There were over 600,000Read More petitions by Californians to put this law to a vote by the people. These petitions are currently being verified. So, this law not is not legally in effect. This will most likely be put on a ballot for the voters in the next election cycle this year.

A lot of people paid for lunches and other means for government people that were furloughed! ThatRead More is going to put a bitter taste in a lot of people not knowing they were going to get paid latter on.

This president could have done more to avoid this shut down but he does not work well with others,Read More so he let the shut down happen.
