Obamacare Website Can Take The Reservation But Not Hold The Reservation

December 6, 2013

Much of the focus and media coverage have been on the front-end problems with the portal, and administration officials have repeatedly claimed that Healthcare.gov could not handle the traffic that resulted from Americans who were supposedly attempting to log on en masse.

But insurance companies have complained of back-end problems. Some insurance companies have warned that the “faulty and incomplete” data they are receiving from the Healthcare.gov website may actually mean Americans who think they signed up for insurance will not be enrolled.

One health care consultant asked of Obama administration officials: Are they “stupid enough to fix the front end of this thing before they fix the back end?”

Obamacare website allow insurance companies to take the reservation but not hold the reservation.

FBI Launches Attack On The Scooter Store With No Cost To You

February 22, 2013

Approximately 150 federal and state law enforcement agents launched a massive raid on one of the biggest perpetrators of government fraud in America: The Scooter Store. Yes, that’s right. The nation’s largest provider of single-person electric vehicles and power chairs is the target of a federal investigation, probably because many of the people who ride around their “personal mobility devices” don’t actually need them. FBI agents would not provide details on any crimes or possible charges behind the search warrant, but 1,200 employees of the company were escorted from the headquarters in New Braunfels, Texas.

Ask The Eye, Reader Rejects Naming Her Child Vulva, How About The Name Seven You Can Bend It Like Beckham

November 28, 2012

Dear Eye View

My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, around Christmas. We thought nothing could sadden us during this happy time, but were shocked last week to hear that my husband’s mother was taken from us in an auto accident. In his grief, my husband asked that we name our daughter after his late mother. The problem is that my mother in law’s name was Vulva, and I just can’t fathom giving my child such a horrid name. I had been thinking something along the lines of Virginia or Lou Ann. I told my husband I would think about it, but he’s pressing the issue, and I need to tell him something. Am I being selfish for not wanting to name my child Vulva, even under these circumstances?

Desperate

Dear Desperate

I understand your desperation. Tell your husband you feel uncomfortable naming your child after a body part and there are other wonderful names his mother would aprove. For instance, I have always liked the name Seven. It’s Mickey Mantle’s number. So not only is it a beautiful name, it is also a living tribute to Mickey and your mother- in- law. If he objects you can always use it as a middle name. You can bend it like Beckham. Hope this helps.

NY Food Donations To Homeless Shelters Not Allowed Due To Fat Content, Homeless Insulted By Muffin Stumps

November 10, 2012

Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!

Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from Bloomberg’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.

No muffin stumps allowed either.

 

Ask The Eye Consider Being An Architect

September 16, 2012

Dear Eye View

We are friends with a couple who both have successful careers but they drive me a little crazy. “David” was accepted to medical school but dropped out to get an MBA, not an M.D. “Laura” went to law school, but didn’t take the bar. David tells everyone he’s a doctor but doesn’t practice, and Laura says she’s a lawyer. Every so often Laura will say to people, “Why don’t you ask David about your son’s illness, he’s a doctor.” Are they misrepresenting themselves? Am I wrong to be so annoyed by this? Not a Doctor

Dear NAD

I understand your concern.According to the American Bar Association, law school graduates who have not passed the bar should not call themselves lawyers. But David might need an attorney if he continues to hold himself out as a doctor and dispenses medical advice. Tell your friend to go to architecture school. It really doesn’t take that long.. Hope this helps.
