    god.. so shmaltzy.. but effective.

    even though it is a bit oscar-bait, there's an actual kernel of good in there.

    wtf.. he just "tally-ban"

    That's so not fair. I see my 74 year old father work a part time job in a supermarket deli every morning at 5 am for the insurance. My mother's medication would cost 1200 a month without it. And the kicker is they only schedule him 32 hours a week so he has to throw in 3 hours of vacation time to maintain his insurance benefits. It is "so bad" when your in that situation and you realize that you will work until you drop dead just so you can afford health care.

    If your 72yo dad is working just for healthcare then can someone PLEASE explain to me why we're all paying extra millions for this republican farce called Medicare prescription coverage?

    Some of her medications are not covered and not all Drs. accept medicare. The paperwork can be extensive , the waiting time for approval of a course of treatment and the denial for benefits that you will have to pay for out of your own pocket is a frightening reality of people on a fixed income. Medicare prescription coverage sounds good when you're speaking to a crowd but the realities can be daunting.

    He has to win the election, otherwise I feel like we will be hopeless for another 4 years with McCain. The last 8 years with Bush have been miserable. If McCain wins, America, as a whole, will worsen. I honestly believe that.

    It's going to take longer than 4 years to get out of this hole, but if Obama wins I believe he will lead us in the direction of change. That's more than McCain will ever do for us.

    I worry about my child and her generation's future if things don't improve soon. That's a scary and hopeless feeling.

    I'm Obama all the way and I get what they were going for, but it felt too calculated, with overly slick production values. Like an infomercial, and infomercials make me change the channel. I couldn't watch for more than 5-10 minutes.

    I swear I'm not a heartless bitch! Actually, that might just be it, he's preaching to the choir. I know damn well how bad people have it, seeing those individual examples of suffering just depressed me.

    Yes, im fucking aware of arthritis and how bad some people have it, i still found the whole thing shmaltzy with the heart-string music tugging away overtop. It was like watching a Ron Howard movie.. slick and bludgeoning with the emotionalism.

    THAT is what i was poking at.

    Well, I used to be Baptist and Methodist and generally choir practice is on Wednesday nights. Also, at the Methodist church I went to, there was a church-provided dinner beforehand for about $2-3 bucks a person. Some churches also do prayer meetings or such.

    The church I go to now meets in a movie theatre, so we don't have mid-week activities. You can join a small group that meets in people's homes throughout the week, though.
