I believe there's at least one county up there that does something funky with its electoral votes, like it splits them or something (dont @ me if I'm way off).

Incel...motivational posters? What could those possibly be?

For example:

I watched all twenty minutes of this without being bored.



For all the tumult of the 20th century, it was just a blip on the radar compared to older events. This won't last.

I feel like I need to see healthcare costs split out between what didn't exist X number of years ago and what did to get a better understanding of it. The further back one goes, the more I speculate that healthcare was cheaper because fewer treatments existed, and life expectancy was shorter.

College education costs, on the other hand....that I'm more convinced that there's a scam afoot.

There’s certainly some significant cost involved in new technologies (an MRI machine costs $3 million to buy, $4 million to install/house, $100,000 a year to maintain, and can require on site salaried maintenance staff for larger hospitals).

Problem with this, though, is that US health care costs are anomalous among developed countries, but neither life expectancy nor range of treatments is better (or improving faster).

This seems fair, I just see way too many people chalk it up to entirely one or the other.
