  •  God must REALLY hate me today (7+ / 0-)

    I just got back from the doctor, and I'm laid up in bed with colitis on a clear liquid diet and in a lot of pain.

    I'm so lucky that my husband's job provides decent insurance. The most expensive prescriptions are $45 (most are $10), doctor's visits are $15. Emergencies might still run us into the ground, though... $500 deductible on most everything else, and after that, they pay 80%.

    •  Haven't you heard?.....God really hates Amputees (3+ / 0-)

      Why won't God heal amputees?

      What are we seeing here? It is not that God sometimes answers the prayers of amputees, and sometimes does not. Instead, in this situation there is a very clear line. God never answers the prayers of amputees. It would appear, to an unbiased observer, that God is singling out amputees and purposefully ignoring them.

      Edwards puts healthcare reform on the table in a very credible way and is tough enough to make HR 676,....the ultimate goal, achievable.

      •  or maybe (0+ / 0-)

        amputees just lose so much faith that they can never get their prayers to work.  The all-purpose excuse is really logically unassailable.

        ...when you get to heaven, He's gonna ask you how come you don't have all the parts He sent you down with!  lol!  Anybody remember the "All in the Family" episode about organ donation?  Archie wakes up from a nightmare in which he dies and gets to Heaven without some of his organs, and God is hopping mad about it!
