Molavian: Fark: Where everything turns into partisan douchebaggery.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: How about the other people that lost limbs?
Theory Of Null: The internet is awesome at raising money and watching porn.
Marshmallow Jones: Having said that, I wish people would stop with this 'He's a True American HeroTM' shiat. It's so farking overused that it means nothing anymore. Everyone's a farking hero.
PanicMan: Oooooorrrrrr.......We could just fund raise for everyone to have health care. You know, through taxes?
trappedspirit: God-is-a-Taco: Are there any websites like this that DON'T skim money off for their own profit?There's so many of them, but of course they all take a share of the donations.Is there a land where hardware, bandwidth, and payroll are free?
mekki: Five million dollars to go before we can rebuild him. We have the technology.
CygnusDarius: MNguy: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: How about the other people that lost limbs?Like the kids in Iraq?America might forget them, but not the Doctors Without Borders.
weasil: Marshmallow Jones:Having said that, I wish people would stop with this 'He's a True American HeroTM' shiat. It's so farking overused that it means nothing anymore. Everyone's a farking hero. I heard someone calling the race officials heroes because there wasn't more loss of life...that doesnt even make any farking sense. Stuff your farking 3rd grade platitudes, your flag waving and your farking tear-soaked tissues up your ass. Grow the fark up.I know others will give you shiat for saying it, but I'm with you on this. If you lose your legs trying to save someone else, that's heroic. Losing them by being the unlucky sap in the wrong place at the wrong time is not. The heroism awards go to those who step in to help, and you don't need to be an American to be a hero (Carlos Arredondo -- cowboy hat man -- was born in Costa Rica, according to Wikipedia).
Hobodeluxe: berylman: I really hate to ask/wonder what insurance he had and if they would cover this and if all this is really necessary? Probably is at least partly so just an estimate.pretty sure his insurance isn't going to cover 100% of his lost wages from being handicapped the rest of his life.
a_real_human_being: A guy gets his legs blown off in a cowardly terrorist attack... and has to worry about paying the medical bills.[img805.imageshack.us image 640x480]/what I find really sad about the story//'Murica!
Hobodeluxe: leevis: PanicMan: Oooooorrrrrr.......We could just fund raise for everyone to have health care. You know, through taxes?Just what I want, health care brought to me by the same people who gave us social security, unnecessary wars, lax border security, the war on drugs, etc.you'd rather get it from those who stand to make a buck by denying you coverage
depmode98: things like this is sort of the exact reason why we should have socialized medicine.
