How is it legal for an insurer to cancel an insurance policy?,
Obamacare is a token reform that gives a single Mom with two kids and two shitty P/T jobs a $5000 deductible health plan she pays $6000/year for (maybe $4000 after subsidies) on an income of $33k. About 20% of her pre-subsidy income.
Or making a single healthy 22-year old pay $4000/year for a $5000 deductible health care plan he'll hardly use.
It's utterly useless for 95% of health care, which is non-terminal, non-life threatening stuff like the flu, broken leg, etc. since the deductibles are astronomical.
Despite the US having the least efficient, most expensive, least transparent healthcare system in the industrialized world, somehow expanding it to more people will help.
It's simply a mandatory, corporate subsidy for powerful financial interests.

Uruguay shows the way: Weed all about it,
Paraguay has a 50's attitude about Marijuana, but exports it like crazy. That, and imitation brand cigarettes.
Want to know about Paraguay's current president?
Philip Morris and British-American were the instigators of the investigation into marijuana and illegal tobacco smuggling, btw. He also owns Banco Amambay and a huge multi-million account in Fuji or some other South Pac Island.

Pledge/Petition to "not buy until",
You can't get a bank loan to buy land, esp if you don't own property.
If a typical young person or couple could buy a 1/5th acre for $50k with $7k down...
Another thing that needs to go is the minimum square footage requirement. We should be encouraging, not discouraging, people from living in smaller places.
