#1 Police state alert! Thus is it ever with "public" transit.
Woe and betide: verily, we are all on the escalator to serfdom.

#3 No, let me expand on that.

Obviously you have never seen a person scalped, neverming having gloves on the blood while trying not to hear the screams.

Instead you gloat over this person's misery, and at that totally off topic. Here you have a chance to donald duck about the greatedness of her having auto cover and you: police state?

It appears that one of us is enjoying the ride.

#6 Not me, Jack. I and my family live in a state that's finally throwing off the yoke - of corrupt and predatory insurers like UnitedHealth. No more DOB for the made-up, BS notion of a "pre-existing condition." No more signing up for a plan and then seeing the insurer jack up our rates over 50% within four months of our signing.

Of course, my tax dollars will still heavily fund the plans of millions of ACA-haters who rely on a trillion in annual taxpayer subsidies, but whatever. We're finally moving in the right direction, thank God. With effective insurance regulation after next year's ballot initiative passes, it'll get even better - for every Californian, R or D or whatever.

#7 Swks - spare me the faux-earnestness. Black humor is Rantburg's calling card, from the snarky comments interspersed with each story to the bad puns to the fake dime novel witticisms.

This particular story was posted after one on Anna Chapman's love-tweet and before the one titled "tea Homeowner Hogties Attempted Burglar." So enough with the fake piety and crocodile tears.

#10 Hey Bucko, I was commenting on you, and your foe earnestness proves my point. See, you were all caught up in trying to poke someone in the chest and missed the easy layup of your door-to-door vacuum salesman zeal.

So yeah, kinda sound like a dork. The caterwauling seems fit.
