Well, it's tuesday here, so brain is already in US election mode. :P

I thought some people have already pre-voted? We can do that if you will be out of the country or some other mode of not being able to get to a voting place on election day.

nl, feel free to smack toby with the salmon of correction. :D
Some states have early voting or mail in ballots. It depends on where you live.

Here in PA you can only vote the one day from 7am to 8pm. :P

I will be there at 7am to get it over with. Then after work I can go home and have a drink. Or two.

Sorry I've been away, everyone (in case anyone had noticed ;) ). I'm currently deep in moving house, so I shall be gone again shortly! Calma, email me when you need to scores for MoME and I'll get them to you. :)

I don't have them yet, and unfortunately, our house move got moved up a day, so I'm currently sitting on a garden chair in the middle of our old living room! (The movers were meant to come tomorrow.) The earliest I can probably get the results to you is Thursday, as we've still got movers coming tomorrow hopefully.

Sorry everyone! The moving was unexpected!

Yea. I know. My sister stands to lose insurance too. At least maybe she can last a few years until Medicare kicks in, if they don't gut that too.

Medicare has already been gutted. They've been "borrowing" from it for years.

They don't cover much of anything anyway, that's why people have to get supplemental insurance to go along with it.

Medicare works well for the most part. It certainly shouldn't be gutted (i.e., privatized) any more than it already is.
In order to keep costs down it does cover 'medically necessary' tests, procedures, etc. If you doctor orders something outside of that, then yes, you may have to pay.
