Executives of three of the nation’s largest health insurers told federal lawmakers in Washington on Tuesday that they would continue canceling medical coverage for some sick policyholders, despite withering criticism from Republican and Democratic members of Congress who decried the practice as unfair and abusive.

The hearing on the controversial action known as rescission, which has left thousands of Americans burdened with costly medical bills despite paying insurance premiums, began a day after President Obama outlined his proposals for revamping the nation’s healthcare system.

Im pretty sure it was thinking exactly like this that got us kicked out.

Is this what the world has come down to? Scruffy looking people holding up signs or writing on blackboards to tell us their most profound thoughts and daily pearls of wisdom that are basically neither thing?
We might need to wipe the slate clean and start over.

The Clash: “Somebody Got Murdered”

The soundtrack is the same, whether I’m driving in L.A. or playing Grand Theft Auto. Either way I’m running over prostitutes.

I know of something that requires a similar movement of the head but can actually make you $20.

Spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle and movie star/seeker Jim Carrey headlined the more-than-three-hour session at an auditorium on the Fox lot in Century City. Along with singer Melissa Etheridge and several other speakers, they urged their colleagues in film, television, music and other media to transcend the tawdry and mundane with higher-minded fair."

I’m confused…does Carrey’s “higher-minded fair [sic]” start with “The Three Stooges" or with the one about a man who talks to a beaver puppet?

Oh, I’m too cynical. Clearly this revolution of consciousness occurred some time between “Ace Ventura” and “The Mask”:
