COMCAST Gets A COMCASTIC Licking
Just call COMCAST and take their survey. There is a 5 star raring to use with each question and at the end , you can record your piece or peace.
This is the time to bitch your concerns about lack of service and other COMCASTIC problems. So , why is COMCAST doing this , you might ask ? Simple. Can you say AT&T ? Yep , the thought of competition is keeping the CEO up late at night :)
BVD : Hey , uh , ummm , Jerry , how did you know COMCAST is doing this ?

Your Health Insurance
To keep this dated and updated , I will add more information as it comes in. I've been emailed today , this is also part of new data bases being added , to bring into light , more information about Americans. President Bush felt more was needed and so now , the government wants to know who is doing what narcotics , the doctors prescribing , the insurance and the coverage ,and costs to consumers
I know I'll get in trouble for telling the world this , butt , here goes. If you had regular doctor visits and drug scripts last year , you had better check your health insurance for changes. Insurance companies all across this nation are making changes without any regards of informing their customers.
So , just what the Hell is going on ? Our government has decided too many people are double dipping in " Headley " grade drugs ( anything narcotic ) . This includes a person seeing more than one doctor ( drug source ) on a regular basis , for the same drugs. In other words , " double multiple dipping ". Sooo , there is now in place , a 3 step procedure , your doctor has to take care of. You can expect your amount of drugs prescribed , to be lowered to government standards or even be totally cut off , until this is done. The reason your insurance may not tell you about this is because it's a government thing and not a insurance thing. Sooo , let the gov tell you about it , right ?
Also keep in mind , these changes reflect a 23 day month and not the usual 30 day month on your calendar.
BVD : Duh , ummm , Jerry , what is going on with the gov using a 23 day month ?
Jerry : The gov does'nt work on weekends , therefore , " you " do not need a doctor or drugs during weekend hours. By placing people within this calendar system , saves the gov and insurance companies , money
BVD : A 23 day month. You've over done your drugs again , have'nt you
Jerry : No and I'm not kidding. You had better check for those surprises now , before you get both barrels between the eyes.
BVD : OKaaaaaay , I will :) Ummm , Jerry , I was wondering , who's responsible for this kind of stupid , dysfunctional , decision making ?
Jerry : Well , ummmm , it was President Bush and his Congress , who signed this into law.
BVD : You're putting me on
Jerry : ( slowly shakes his head ) No , afraid not , I'm sorry to say

Franklin , Tennessee - if you still have'nt seen it yet , tonight is a very good opportunity @ 1825. The more open horizon area you have , means more sky area to allow you to watch it pass over head. This open area means , no trees , no roof tops , no light poles , no street lights and no car lights. AND , no police officers waiting around , to steal your coat and binoculars ,
Keep in mind , 1825 is not an exact time. So you need to be watching about 10 minutes before hand with your fingers crossed.
If in doubt about the orbit , check your favorite web site , to confirm ISS's track. You'll need 30 minutes for your eyes to correct themselves , to see in the dark , after looking at the computer screen.
1833 hours - it's only 2 degrees windchill , with a half sky of clouds. ISS went directly over my house , headed SSE , just missing the half moon :)
How Insurance Companies Save Money
It's rather obvious , insurance companies use the UN-American principal , against their policy holders , which is : If it's bad for an American, while being good for the bottom line , then it's the Right action to take.
Here's what I was told , insurance is doing : If a person has a Phd. , then that person is also considered a doctor. Insurance companies hire these " Doctors in Basket Weaving " , to look at people's medical files ( aka - policy holders ) , to see if there are possible co$t$ cutting measures to put in place. These doctors have no medical experience what-so-ever. And yet , they are second guessing real doctors.
The real travesty is the commission , insurance companies pay out , to find those co$t$ cutting measures. Would you believe it's a whopping 45 % of the savings ? Here's how it works. Let's say 100 dollars are saved every month by eliminating payments on needles. After all , those can be re used , right ? Now , the " Doctor of Basket Weaving " gets 45 dollars in commission , butt , multiply that 45 dollars by 12 months and you get the full picture.
And yes , they still get a regular paycheck , while rummaging thru patient files. Typical pay is 120,000$ to start , plus car , apartment , meals and free medical insurance.
I will add to this ass new information comes in :
Remember , insurance companies do not have to divulge the identity of their " Doctors " .
I have also been told , some insurance companies are making changes in a " 3 step " method. More than 1 phone number and more than 1 case number is a part of implementing these changes and " NO " , they are not making the effort to tell you about these new changes. This means , you won't learn about any new changes , until you see your doctor and / or your pharmacy. The person telling me this also stated , that insurance companies are betting the doctor will start thinking something is wrong and not carry the ball thru the 3 steps.
