I started a freelance gig at a pharma/bio-med ad agency today. I'm working on the launch of a private program targeted to Medicare enrollees. Because of the proprietary nature of this project, I can divulge no more details beyond what I've already said. What I can tell you is that that Medicare, including the new prescription drug benefit, is beyond burnt toast. Based on the briefing materials, it's Katrina II. It's yet another example of the Admin standing their with its collective weener in its hand, and not knowing which way to pull it. <br><br>It's bad enough when you read the journalistic versions of such information. But when you get it from those that have to don the hasmat suits and swab this crap off the floors... All I can say is WOW! <br><br>
You misspelled wiener. Otherwise, I know what you mean. The prescription drug program is not just toast. It's toast on the Titanic. No wait, medicare are the deck chairs and our health care system is the Titanic. Oh wait, and we taxpayers have to pay for the raising of the Titanic and the rearranging of the deck chairs and making the toast toasty again.<br><br>I need to work on my metaphors. Let's start again. Bush has a frankfurter in his ...<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)

Bush slashes domestic programs, boosts defense<br><br>What's really funny (ha ha ha funny) is this: [color:blue]President Bush proposed on Monday to boost defense spending, slow Medicare's growth and cut a host of domestic programs in a $2.77 trillion budget that sought to soothe Republican frustrations over high deficits.</font color=blue><br><br>Who wants to bet that the deficit next year is as bad as this year?<br><br>. . . . .

To you and Mac Bozo,...<br><br> it's clear the Bush plan is to get the Govt very heavily in debt, near bankrupcy, and then slash everything except defense, tax cuts, and other business handouts.... they'll have an excuse to eviscerate every discretionary program for the average "Joe" and the less fortunate. Reagan started this approach in the 80's but never quite completed it. <br>And the supid masses still dont' see it coming.. they've got them hypnotized with gay marriage, Bible in schools, abortion, and the War on Terrizm.<br><br><br>David (OFI)<br>

Who needs schools? And farm subsidies? Pffffft. Ever hear of Lean Pockets? Who the hell needs them dirty old things that some hayseed yanks outta the ground? Get with the program will ya, whiner? <br><br>
