Say Hello to Luke McGregor from Australia...You will WANT TO SEE this, trust me


Luke is a standup comedian with an economics degree.

He is the costar of two VERY Funny sitcoms from Australia, "Utopia" and "Rosehaven." Utopia was called "Dreamland" while it was on Netflix, it is no longer on Netflix.

He is brilliant and hilarious.

You cant get Utopia here anywhere. I bought an Aussie format DVD player and the DVD's from a store in Australia, that is how good that show is. Like "THe office" and "Curb" in one and that good.

Rosehaven is on the Sundance TV app, which you can get on your Prime page or as a stand alone app.



he has several of these

Do you get leg/calf cramps in bed? So bad you have to JUMP OUT of bed to stretch them out?

So do I, or I did.

For years and for whatever reason almost every night I would get the most debilitating, painful cramps in my calves and I would have to jump out of bed and lean against the wall to stretch them to get them to stop. Only to have to repeat this 15 minutes later.

I used to buy the Hyland's leg cramp pills, expensive and didnt work all that well.

At one point I got my doc to prescribe the malaria drug that treats this, but he wouldnt refill it for me. Quinine sulfate I think it was. That is my memory anyway, was a long time ago, worked great. But you cant get it for that, normally.

Get to the POINT Eliot!

Get at least one, I use 3, bars of soap. Put them at the bottom of your bed on top of the fitted sheet, under the other sheet so they are near your legs without obstruction. I heard that lavender is better, not sure. I have two that are Dove lavender and then one Dove white bar of soap.

I have had one cramp in one year. I shit you not.

I know there is no scientific research to say this works, but it works for me.

You're welcome!

Please, if you have this problem PLEASE trust me and try this and get back to us here, thanks!

Two of these and one regular white bar

Biden ad, Beastie Boys, Blind Pig harassment?

I guess the Trump campaign and Trump people were harassing a patriot who owns the Blind Pig?

Does anyone have a video of the ad they had to take down to protect the patriot from the traitorous vile fucks?

When, not if, ACA is destroyed, can individual states FORCE the insurance companies to

not reinstate preexisting condition clauses because health insurance is regulated by each individual state? Or not put caps back on benefits?

Regulation in the individual market is much more diverse and varied among states than is the case for large or small groups (copied this from one source)

I should remember all this but I dont.

If you live in New York state and you have employer based insurance and ACA is overturned, is that policy/insurance company regulated by the DOI for the State of New York? Can the DOI (Dept of Insurance) force them to provide certain coverages and limit premiums or profits, which is also part of ACA? Can they force them not to have preexisting?

How long in extreme situations would it take to spend a million dollars in a hospital?

A month, two weeks, one week?

Even if the limit of benefit is $1 million, you can go over that in a short amount of time.

Why do cons want to give their homes to insurance companies? I dont get it.

Who wants to bet Covid will be considered a preexisting condition not just for people who have already been diagnosed but for EVERYONE...Impossible?

If they redefine how the preexisting clause works it could include anything you have at the time of being insured, right? So you are tested when the law changes, and if you have it, no coverage? If it is up to the state, and the state is red, who knows, right? But the GOP and their voters want you to worry about that now.

I dont know how it is worded now, exactly. But each state would end up regulating it if you remove the federal law, just like with abortion.

Boy does the GOP want to fuck your life up or what ! ! ! !

Oh, and there were LIFETIME caps also, forgot about that!

Plans can put an annual dollar limit and a lifetime dollar limit on spending for health care services that are not considered essential health benefits.

Is what it is now.

Anybody else get their OBAMACARE REFUND CHECK ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

First, you all understand ACA applies to ALL health insurance other than Medicare and Medicaid and that which Veterans receive? And one of the things that applies is the 80/20 rule.

The 80/20 Rule generally requires insurance companies to spend at least 80% of the money they take in from premiums on health care costs and quality improvement activities. The other 20% can go to administrative, overhead, and marketing costs. The 80/20 rule is sometimes known as Medical Loss Ratio, or MLR. (taken from website not listed here)


Billions in ACA rebates show 80/20 Ruleís impact
Medical loss ratio forced carriers to devote more premium dollars to care, and record-high rebates were issued in 2019 following premium spikes in 2018

$1.37 billion in rebates were sent to consumers in 2019 ó the largest total in the programís history

That was last year, this years is now.

How dumb can a person be who opposes this!


Does not apply to Medicare supplements that I know of...


Not all who qualify for the rebate (where employer doesnt pay 100% of the premium) will get one if their carrier spends all the money they have on the allocated areas, as in they dont have excess profits over and above. But you would get paperwork explaining that if you dont get one.

All our efforts are in the toilet if you dont VOTE and do anything you can to get others to VOTE

For those of us who were THIS CONCERNED 4 yrs ago and urged people to stop the bullshit and support Hillary like their lives depended on it, that time is upon us again and we are BEGGING people that this is NOT OVER by any stretch!

Remember my rule, any democrat has to win by 5%, not 0.1% which is all republicans need to win.

Democrats always start out 5 points behind because of massive voter suppression and many actions taken by cons in every election to fuck around with preventing votes cast in the first place or counting votes and rejecting them for the tiniest of errors, etc.

In this election, for example, if 70,000,000 allowed to vote by law Americans go to vote or cast their vote for Joe and Kamala, just assume 3.5 million of those ballots wont get cast or counted or received (DeJoy must MUST go to prison) for any number of reasons like signatures not matching because they are not perfect etc.

Look at any state poll and apply this calculation for EC purposes and you see all the more URGENCY in voting and not just voting, but getting others to vote.

Thank you...

Also, I recommend folks read
