We all deserve the right to make our own health care choices. That's why I just joined Planned Parenthood in the fight to make sure everyone can access the care they need, no matter where they live, no matter what. Stand with us.
According to the CBO, "repealing major provisions of the Affordable Care Act, while leaving other parts in place, would cost 18 million people their insurance in the first year and could increase the number of uninsured Americans by 32 million in 10 years, while causing insurance premiums to double over that time."
My late father worked as a longshoreman on the New York waterfronts and piers for many years from the 1950s through the 1970s. He had a strong back as it was all done by hand with hooks and brawn. Now it's all mechanized with cranes and fork lifts.
"Fine" : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. Walk away slowly and retreat to the man-cave. You do have a man-cave, right?
"Five Minutes" : If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes before helping around the house.
"Nothing" : This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes, because it is not a good sign. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in "Fine".
"Go Ahead" : This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
"Loud Sigh" : This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)
"That's Okay" : This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake. Find a good hiding place, perhaps the man-cave.
"Thanks" : A woman is thanking you, do not question, do not smile or faint. Just say you're welcome and back away slowly. Find the man-cave.
"Whatever" : This is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU! Back away slowly, then run to the man-cave.
