Just got my Obamacare bill in the mail yesterday.  Starting in December, my healthcare premiums go up $500 per month in order to cover just three people.  That's an extra $6,000 per year in case you are mathematically challenged.  Of course, we could always opt for the "free" government health care ... but then the taxes would take the hit. 

So ... goodbye PrePubs.  Goodbye, CP bids.  Goodbye, Logos ... my library is now frozen.

Three thoughts before I leave ...

1)  O My people! Their oppressors are children (Is 3:12)

2)  How long, O Lord? (Hab 1:2)

3) Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20)

 

JRS ... signing off.

Sorry. Cannot figure out whether this is sarcasm or not.

We do not know how this will play out, nor what all will feel the impact of Obamacare.  Interesting times, and no doubt some surprises ahead.

I've been an activist for many years against this hyper-partisan, poorly designed and utterly destructive legislation.  

Please call your Senators today and ask them to oppose Cloture.

As a Canadian and fellow Christian, what is the Christian opposition to this piece of legislation? Is there any? As someone who has no stake in this personally, please feel free not to answer. I am just asking for my information.

I agree. I suggest this thread get locked or deleted before decorum descends.

I'd be glad to chat with anyone about this off the board; my wife is running a Congressional Campaign at the moment (5th district, a Nanophysicist from Harvard), and one of their themes is the local effects this Bill is having on medical technology innovation.  So I'm seeing this Bill from many different angles.  

Cheer,

There is significant opposition (from Christians and non-Christians alike.) This issue is very divisive n the United States which is why we ought to avoid discussing it in the Logos forums. (forum guidelines, you know)

There are several Logos resources that address social justice and socialism, if you are interested in Biblical arguments pro and con.

Actually, Super Tramp I'd be interested in those if you have their titles handy?

 I will have to search them out again . I have an interest in these but my wish lists are so long I did not add them to it. I do know there is one collection in CP or Pre-Pub and about three more coections already published. I'll look.

Sorry Ray. Got carried away. 

Logos forums is the only place where I find the breadth and depth of Christians necessary to engage in such discussions without being tied to one viewpoint.

Perhaps someone can move this to Faithlife??

Just a friendly reminder. No need to say "Goodbye", the usefulness of Logos and the blessings we receive from the software is not determined by the size of our library. Even the smallest base package gives us capabilities former generations could not even dream of. Sometimes we forget how blessed we truly are. 

As for the precipitating issue God covered this very well thousands of years ago: "Thou shall not steal." and "Thou shall have not other God." God's Law give amazing clarity if we would only allow it to renew our minds. (Rom. 12:2)

I hope that you are simply being sarcastic JRS and that Logos will still have a place in your priorities.

One MAJOR problem with the new rules is that in the US if you are of party A and you are known to talk to a member of party B you lose your job.  

Party A and party B are NOT allowed to work together to find a good fix to anything.  Jesus is coming and He better get here soon.

Sorry.  No sarcasm/mockery/wringing of the hands/acrimony/scorn/disparagement/etc. intended ... just realistic resolve.  I will, of course, continue to use Logos but any future purchases are basically gone.  Since the disposable income/savings of America has now been earmarked by others, I genuinely fear for the future of Logos.

As they say, it is what it is ... or to be more precise, it is what has been foreordained.  Smile

Yeah -- I think we are suffering an unintended consequence of some Watergate reforms.  Since everything has to be done in an open meeting, it makes it hard for people to have any cover for making a deal so things can get done.
