Health Care Reform: yet another perspective (part 2)

Now that the final bits have been signed into law (including student loan junk… how is that related to healthcare again?) it’s a good time to finish this thing, finally. This is part 2 of my response to the monstrous healthcare reform bill. Read Part 1 first if you haven’t already.

Losing weight the lazy way

I have been described by my family and others as lazy and easily distracted. I do not dispute these claims. (The evidence is overwhelming anyway.)

In the past, I have rebelled against my lazy self and have tried my best to become a fastidious workaholic. The rebellions are generally quelled within 3 days, and the recovery process involves more laziness and more distractions.

Recently, I have found ways to channel my natural inclinations toward increased productivity. As an amusing and unintentional side effect, for the first 10 weeks of this year, I lost about a half-pound to a pound each week.

The effect has been noticeable enough that I’ve now got people asking me how I did it. Hence this blog post, my best guess at the changes that made the biggest difference.

As with most things of this nature, these methods won’t work for everyone, and I can’t even be 100% sure that what I describe here is what’s responsible for the weight loss (hey, maybe I just have a tapeworm). Please read on anyway.

Health Care Reform: yet another perspective

The passing of the health care bill in the House and subsequent signing by President Obama has predictably generated a lot of chatter. Including this post, I suppose, in which I hope to present a viewpoint that differs from most of the responses I’ve seen so far.

I don’t think there is anyone out there who is truly ecstatic about the present state of U.S. healthcare, so I believe the participants in the great debate fall into two categories: those more or less happy with the current state of affairs (at least, happy enough to believe that the bill should be voted down), and those calling for change.
