November 2010 Rants and Raves (10)

"How To Be A Philosopher" excert from "Philosophy Now" magazine. I found this hilariously entertaining.

Ian Ravenscroft philosophizes about philosophizing.

1. What to Wear

Philosophers rarely get worked up about clothing. Clothes can be a source of aesthetic pleasure, and few philosophers are adamantly opposed to pleasure. (They may object to pleasures too dearly bought, and they

might object to the elevation of pleasure above other values such as

justice, but they rarely find fault with pleasure properly bought and

valued.)…

HHS cost rules put states in middle.

With pressure mounting from lobbyists for insurance agents, state regulators are scrambling to decide whether they want to apply for exemptions from

the new federal rules stating how much insurers must spend on medical

costs.

The health care reform law requires insurers to spend at least 80 percent of premiums on medical costs…

Wiki leaks is pure bullshit

I do not for one second believe that this information was either lost by or taken from the US military. This is just your standard disseminated bullshit edited to add dramatic flare, in a pathetic attempt to rewrite living history.

kills the darkness as it blinds

destroys the evil propaganda

and frees the children's minds… Continue
