Lunch Break: What Women Want

Health insurance!

Remind me sometime to tell you about how "Garden State" and "Spiderman Three" are really movies about the failures of the employer-based health-care system.

Hmmm, well Garden State is largely about the overmedicated youth of the early 21st century, as I recall, so your thinking is probably along the lines of waste in healthcare there. Too many tests, too many pills, etc.

Spider-Man 3 (yeah, nerd cop alert, there's a hyphen there) though...ok, I had to check Wikipedia, but Sandman's criminal career seems to have been based around getting medical treatment for his daughter. With a public insurance plan he wouldn't have needed to turn to crime and probably wouldn't have gotten his powers. You'd probably still have a Venom problem though.

Fantastic song and dance! We need it all. Some ask the question where are Obama's foot soldiers. I believe if Obama's foot soldiers are busy doing this, the question is answered and our future may not be that dark!
