Most of what we have been told are lies.

Well ÷=%÷, ken. I mean, it's not that I disagree.
 
It's just that following that train of thought gets me into a super depressing state-of-affairs - one where nearly every aspect of information dissemination has been tightly controlled for, like, ever... dude.
 
I mean you're suggesting that reefer madness level propoganda is alive and well, it just got really subtle.
 
Blowing my mind here dude.
 
Cheers.

There are plenty of people who still believe the lies. Plus, the people
that benefit from the status quo.

Your brother is correct.

If you asked me I could tell you in 2 seconds what each of my codes pay. A lot of providers for at least their most common codes could do the same thing.
 
So from the provider end, I don't neccessarily buy this.
 
Perhaps from the hospital end it's different.

I'll just leave this here, and a note that in at least half of the states hospitals have to disclose their prices if you call. Very few patients call.

I agree - with examples...
 
My GP can't even admit patients to the hospital or see them there -
his choice. But that's fine - the hospital is always my last choice.
My kidney doctor has his own facility but he has admittance
privileges. My heart doctor left the hospital and opened his own
place. The hospital handled that poorly and I told them so
face-to-face.
 
All three believe Medicare cheats them out of income and causes them
to hire more employees to do government paper work than those who help
treat people with problems.

The minimum wage should be zero.

Didn't figure you for one who wants to expand
the welfare state.
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: Jul 11 06:26AM -0700

The minimum wage is and always has been zero.
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: Jul 11 06:31AM -0700

You posted a press release and an opinion piece referencing the press release.
 
I'll read the research when I get time. I suggest you read both papers too.

He also retired recently from Oklahoma.

Now this is a high quality shiny hook. No apparent angle. Just a topic.
 
You'll have two fish killing each other just to get gut hooked by this.

Maybe he'll get lucky and breitbart will post one he can copy n paste.

That you're in a physical reality - say, like, the one we all assume we're in right now.
 
Now imagine that within that "universe", you can create a virtual reality that greatly mimics the existing physical reality. And can create artificial "minds" - AIs - to inhabit that virtual reality. They think they're real.
 
Ha - dumbass AIs. More likely, you get a big game of Life (super cellular version) to take off and the AIs sort of evolve.
 
Whatever, you have AIs.
 
Now assume that those AIs are enterprising enough to create their own virtual reality - a nested VR. And AIs to inhabit their artificial realm. Or their own version of Conway. Whatever.
 
Assume that all that is possible.
 
What's the probability that you and I are inhabiting the first, *truly* physical reality?
 
To answer that, you have to start thinking about the limiting factors to "infinite" nested virtual realities. Cuz, if they're actually infinite, that probability becomes vanishingly small. Like, approaching zero y'all.
 
That's small!
 
I suggest that your limitations would be around "graining" - each nested reality would necessarily be less "fine-grained" than it's parent.
 
Thusly and non-importantly, I give you the measure of where you and I reside in this onion. The Planck limits.
 
Hth. Hand.
 
Cheers.

The good news is oSu is clearly on the verge of winning an NCAA football NC.
 
The bad news is how I know this: Earth faces "biological annihilation" in sixth mass extinction, scientists warn

dotslashderek@gmail.com: Jul 10 09:58PM -0700

Oh course. Dued, you can't expect an uber-apex-predator to take its mantle without a little shake-up.
 
Making omelets and all that. Eggs gonna be cracked.
 
Here's the cool thing - we're the first known super-predator with the ability to bring it's prey back...
 
Cheers.
