Public Service: Avoid Palm Cruise Lines


This is a public service.  Never go on a Palm Cruise.  This is a letter I received from Palm Cruise Lines after I wrote them for a refund following an unsatisfactory vacation I had on one of their singles cruises.  The cruise was disappointing.  Their response even more so.  See for yourself why you should avoid Palm Cruises.

Dinner With Socrates


—  ”Socrates, thank you for taking the time to come over to my place to have dinner.  I’m thrilled and honored.  When I applied to college and was asked ‘who from history I’d most like to have dinner with?’, I never thought it could come true.  But, here we are.”  

—  ”Yes, your university scientists do good job bring me here to your era.  I only just learn English but I happy to discuss with you here.  This is first time I leave lab and must get back to scientists soon, for what scientists call investigations?”

—  ”I know, so while you help yourself to dinner, let’s get into it.  I’m fascinated to know your thoughts on life.  Tell me about the nature of humankind.”

—  ”What this here?”

—  ”It’s a panini.”

—  ”You make?”

—  ”Yeah, it’s easy.  I used a panini maker.”

—  ”You have machine?  It just make puh-nee-nee?”

Dr. Steven Fisher on 5 Things Obamacare Does Not Do

The Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) is now open for enrollment, With that in mind, Steven Fisher, M.D., M.P.H. is here to provide consumers insight into things that Obamacare does not do. 

Here is Dr. Fisher’s “5 Things Obamacare Does Not Do.”  Be advised that Dr. Fisher was recently divorced.


5 Things Obamacare Does Not Do

1.) Obamacare Does Not Stop Your Wife From Cheating on You

The first thing consumers must know about Obamacare is that it did not prevent my wife from cheating on me.  Nope, over 1,000 pages in that bill and not a single clause of it stopped Joanne from sleeping with her personal trainer.  A personal trainer I paid for, I should add.  

2.) Obamacare Fails to Address What Chad The Personal Trainer Has That I Lack

The President’s law is a failure when it comes to explaining how Chad — the personal trainer my ex-wife had an affair with — is in any way half the man I am.  Does Chad have two advanced degrees as I do?  Does Chad’s work “literally” save lives?  I’ll admit that Chad is in good shape, so is Joanne so shallow as to throw away ten years of marriage just for that?
