Some folks don’t get the point: You have to come home when it’s over.
James Cameron’s completely immersive spectacle “Avatar” may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora.
These people vote.
Of course, they could maybe be forgiven – some of the politicians that the suicidal Avatar voters chose are persisting in a fantasy of their own:
Among the astonishing things about the ObamaCare debate—or lack thereof—is that Washington is inundated with warnings about the destructiveness of this plan, and it doesn’t matter. The agency that runs Medicare rung the latest alarm bell on Friday, and good luck finding any media mention.
Richard Foster, the chief actuary for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, reports that under his analysis national health spending will rise under the bills by $222 billion over the next 10 years. In other words, ObamaCare really does “bend the cost curve”—up.
We were told by our president that “doing nothing” with respect to burgeoning health care costs was not an option. I’m not sure that this is what we had in mind.
