Dunno... maybe skin cancer rates go down? Just like smoking and drinking, if people choose to kill themselves slowly, why not tax the shit out of them while they're still alive.

I picked up another project today, and the chevy dealership we are doing told us to process a change order that they believe will increase our contract by at least 50%, bailout money well spent right into my pocket.

I have two choices, 1 join a huge group of people that are willing to rebel. (that doesn't seem to exist) or 2 F*ck every penny out of everybody I can.

Just wait until people see what is really going to happen to private insurance companies.

I know I've said it before but the general public doesn't realize yet what this bill has done to private business.

what the hell does he care if someone tans? Girls at my school usually only tan during the winter anyways. Soon as summer comes Obama's going to be pissed that the tanning tax backfired. And look at the bright side we're closer to socialism and communism than ever, Hurray!!!
