    I have heard this so many times and as a feminist who does not live in the USA I do not understand “special rights or entitlements”. Please explain and tell me who these feminists are that are doing the lobbying as well as what they are lobbying for? Are they self-identified feminists or are you identifying them as such? Please state your sources and no videos please – these are not legitimate sources that can be fact checked easily.

    While thinking about the idea of an altruistic, fair “public option” for health insurance, I started trying to figure out why something like it doesn’t already exist. (Or maybe it does?)

    The assumption seems to be that health insurance companies are causing problems through systematic greed, and the public option would help keep them honest. But, if this is the case, why isn’t there an organization doing this already? Why don’t the “good,” people, such as the ones that take less-pay than they could in other sectors to run major charitable organizations, start a “good” health insurance company that doesn’t do any of the bad things that the other insurance companies do. If such an organization were to exist, it seems that everyone would switch to it, and even the most greedy of insurance companies would have to become like it in order to compete.

    There are obviously enough qualified and caring people out there to make such an organization happen without any government involvement. So why don’t such organizations exist?

    I have a few ideas, but they don’t explain the whole story. Maybe the fact that people don’t usually shop around for health insurance because it’s chosen by their employers prevents new “good” insurance companies from gaining the market share required to make the “bad“ ones change? Maybe health insurance companies are already as good as they can be, despite a few heartless employees, and the primary problems in health care come from somewhere else? Maybe protectionist legal policies prevent altruistic organizations from freely forming?

    Any thoughts?

    I really just need help with the intro and how I should start it. I have a feeling that the body paragraphs would explain what he did as president and the conclusion would just be a restatement of the intro. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Please take into consideration that this is for a 12th grade Modern American History class so I need substantial evidence to support my argument. Thanks!!

    From what I can see, Obamacare is a plan to prop up failed insurance companies (and to some degree financial institutions) by forcing the public to buy insurance from insurance companies. It seems like evil genius alright, but what aspect of this is socialist?

    what is unemployment insurance? Is an organization required to pay unemployment benefits to all dismissed employees? Explain how you would go about minimizing your organization’s unemployment insurance tax.

    HSUS (yeah ick I know lol) and a couple other organizations suggests making pet resumes that show your pet in a good light and explains how you’re a responsible owner.

    Have you ever used one and do they seem to work?
    Well planning that as well but I have a couple pets and I know it’s going to be difficult when I move to find a landlord willing to accept them all.

    My medical alert dog died last year a day after having $1500.00 in surgery. I have a new medical alert dog now I got from a shelter. It is very hard for me to pay this surgery bill. I’ve only managed to get it down to about $1000.00 in 14 months. I live on Social Security Disability. I was hoping someone might know of any organizations that help needy people pay vet bills. My vet clinic even threatened to send my bill to a collection place when I got behind when my rent was raised. I’m worried they won’t agree to treat my new dog. She needs her shots this month.

    Some of my friends decided they wanted to start a 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer organization. We did all the necessary legal stuff, insurance, EIN, etc., and it’s under a parent organization. We made a desperate attempt at doing a fundraiser that brought us $150. Several of us put up money and lost it because it amounted to way more than the $150 the project raised. That’s when I got stupid, they wanted me to open a bank account with the organization EIN to deposit the money in. I just went to the bank where I have my own personal accounts because they said they didn’t care which bank I used and I knew some people at the branch. I ended up having to sign the papers for the account because they wanted the check deposited and a couple others were supposed to go to the bank to sign papers but never did.

    I sold an older ski boat I was no longer using for $4,000, the check was made out to me and I deposited in the bank. Later I checked my account and the $4,000 wasn’t in it, I went to the bank and they had deposited to the non-profit account by mistake. The boat was in my name, the check was made out to me and the correct account number was on the deposit slip. The reason for the mix up was because the bank had the non-profit account listed under my name with my personal accounts and someone who knew me didn’t bother to look at the account number. I wasn’t thinking much of it before, but when I logged into my online banking, the non-profit account showed up on my list of accounts.

    I called the bank after noticing the funds weren’t in my account, they immediately realized their mistake and moved the money over to the correct account. I missed the next meeting and it seems someone checked the organization’s balance before the mistake was corrected and they voted to donate $2,000 to a youth program. They then called me and told me they needed a check for the $2,000 and I informed them we only had $150 in the account, but they said someone stopped by the Post Office before the meeting and picked up the mail which included a statement from the bank showing the organization had $4,150 in their account.

    What the bank shows is that $4,000 was deposited to the organization’s funds then transferred to my personal account. What they are trying to tell me now is once the money is deposited in organization funds, it’s been donated to them and it’s not possible to get the money back and I removed money from the account without authorization.

    A couple months later the whole thing came back again, they all decided they wanted to fold the organization and voted to donate the entire amount in their bank account to the youth organization and they informed the youth organization they would be donating them the entire $4,150. I tried to explain to them we didn’t have $4,150 in our funds but they said I needed to put the money back immediately so they could donate it.

    Shouldn’t there be something I could get from the bank to show it was a bank error? The check was made out to my name and my correct account number was on the deposit slip, but it appeared someone crossed out the account number and wrote in the account number for the organization. I went in the bank and asked them to include a notation with the next statement showing funds we deposited in the organization account by error and they said they would, not problem. What they included in the next statement was a copy of a slip showing that I had requested money be transferred from organization funds to mine.

    I get no help with anything, end up doing it all myself now they want to take my money and donate it. Shouldn’t there be something I could get from the bank to show it was a bank error and not their money? The bank president said I should have them come in and he would talk to them but they won’t go.
