… ObamaCrapCare strikes Again [#health insurance co – operatives]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 13th,2016

.. yup , the power of the ObamaCrapCare Devil strikes again …

.. this time , it is about a little thing called ” health insurance cooperatives . ”

.. the cooperatives collapse .. and the ” death spiral ” begins …

.. [link] to the news article …

.. the hairy and botched dealings with the release , cancellation , and then re – release of ” the Interview ” [starring Seth Rogen and James Franco] is going to teach Hollywood several important lessons …

.. one , to be obvious is about computer security . It is not , how much it will cost you . It is a question of how much that it will cost you if you do not do it right …

.. another is V.O.D. …. Hollywood cannot ignore it any longer . Going with VODsimulataneous with a motion picture ‘ s release is going to become more and more common . It will also help to cannibalize the antics of movie pirates , by beating them to the punch …
