    I am watching Hardball from earlier today and I just don't think Republicans get it. How can they slam health care and win elections.

    Just based on demographics I should be a Republican. I am starting to get older.  I thought they want white males like me to vote for them. Isn't that their target audience?

    I was trying to read the small print on a box the other day and found myself squinting. I thought, wow you are getting close to 50, you might need some glasses. Does Mitt want me to be able to have health care that gives me vision coverage?

      Therefore you are a liberal. ;)

      Stop complaining about your eye site, I've been wearing glasses since college. At 51 I had to switch to progressive lenses. I'm still getting use to them after 6 months.

      ;)

        You drink good beer, therefore you are a liberal. There are a lot of conservatives who have warped ideas about what constitutes good beer (gun-totin' big truck honkin' rednecks and their ten-can-a-day Budmiller Lite habits, for example). And wasn't it Hunter S. Thompson who said, "Good people drink good beer." I think that appears on one of the Flying Dog labels. All that said, check out these atheist extremists.

      I wish I'd gotten lasik when i could have afforded to; bifocals are expensive.

      Ask the UK Conservatives. They've learned that one: you can't.

        Oh lord yes, and my crappy insurance only helped a bit. Progressive lenses are like trifocal lenses, even more expensive.

        But I decided to do it anyway, I just do too many things where I need to look close then far, close then far. Taking glasses on and off was getting real tiring.

          for progressive lenses is trying to read music. The music stand is in the middle distance and I'm trying to move my eyes not my whole head from top to bottom of page and it just doesn't work. I got a pair of the single vision glasses they usually sell as "computer" glasses and the only thing I use them for is music.

          •  Same problem (0+ / 0-)

            when trying to grade papers. Key on the left, paper on the right. Moving my head back and forth is a pain, just moving my eyes takes me from the out of focus are on the right to the out of focus on the left.

            I just take my glasses off, I can still see well enough at that distance.

        My mom is worth millions. She gets her glasses at like Rite-aid. Not sure I will do that, but I get your point that basic glasses are not super expensive. My gut is my problem was use. Looking at a monitor for 20+ hours. I just got tried.So getting some glasses when I do this will be helpful and hopefully keep me not needing them all the time.
