He's certainly in full spin mode, but Tom Cruise recently said he's tougher than Olympic athletes and soldiers in Afghanistan. Apparently it's because he trains so hard for movie roles (sometimes for a year or two!) and has to do some takes time after time after time. I will say this... he's in pretty good shape, but to compare his work to being a soldier in live combat situations? Dude is a moron... I mean would you rather star in a movie or fight a real war? I think we all know who the real tough guys are...
Certainly though, training for this would have been grueling.
Some of them are hard to look at, but I guarantee that each one will evoke some kind of emotion... look if you dare... the 30 most powerful photos ever.
And here's one with almost no juice...
I think cancer awareness is running pretty full and I'd like to get more people into donation mode. I mean seriously, is there anyone in this country not aware of breast cancer? Well, it's clear that some are still on the awareness trail, and it's clearer than ever that we need to move on... at least to me. Really? Motorboating for Cancer? And now Cupping Balls for Cancer? You gotta be kidding me...
There's a new internet craze called mamming... women rest their bust on a random object... it's kind of like Tebowing or planking.
Anyway, would you like it if your wife or girlfriend did it and posted the pic for all to see?
Seems there's still plenty of chatter over the effects of Obamacare on Ohioans. This morning I spoke with Yevgeniy Feyman from the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research and he says it's likely that rates will go down, which flies in the face of what Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor says. He offered a couple links with information... here's one from Forbes.com that is an intereactive showing what Obamacare will cost. And here's another offering an interactive map. Read for yourself. Of course, I did get some instant reaction... like this from Melanie.
Joel, I'm listening to your Obamacare man. I am self insured, have a $6000 deductible, very healthy, and right now I pay $216 a month for my insurance. I have been told by my insurer that my rates will go up to over $500 when my premium year is up. I think that guy is wrong - mine is going WAY up. Thanks!
And how about this from Neal
I notice your Obama care guest made a big point about how the rate are going to be cheaper because of the large number of competing insurance companies. That is, in essence, the free market at work. So why the big gov takeover when you could just open insurance across state border, drastically increase the number of companies, and achieve the same effect?
It all about control
As always thanks for the input and for listening.
