    Yeah just imagine racking up a $9000 bill for a stitched up finger.

    That is SO fucked up...just what the hell is with that GREED, Insurance companies abusing hell out of medical services for lucrative profits.... 9000$ for basic stiches? I knew that without proper insurances you would be fucked if you would have to hospital at USA but that is just so fucked up... I know that example is but a unique case but its just so unbeliavable and unjust.

    I made a mistake when typing that post earlier our victim just had his wound bandaged instead of stitched up.

    For those people who follow NASCAR, Tony Stewart ran over and killed a driver last night.

    I would chalk this up more to politics than greed because united healthcare didn't have an in house price deal with the hospital which was bought out by another rival company. I'd say that usually hospitals mark up prices in general knowing they'll be knocked down with discounts later on in most normal cases too

    Still broken though

    More on Iraq:

    The American air raid was providencial in here.
    If Isis or IS or whatever you want to call them is starting to fight against the Kurds with air support from the USA, i wouldnīt bet on them.

    Didn't the guy who died crash his car first then angrily run out onto the track?

    I don't think confronting someone for tapping your car and damaging it, is exclusively a Nascar thing.

    And looking at the video guy was pretty much asking for himself to get hit. Why would you stand on a racetrack to lose your shit at a guy for damaging your car all the while there are other cars speeding around?

    Major news development in Baghdad. Seems like al-Maliki, the Prime Minister of Baghdad is staging a coup of the government. Loyalist troops have taken control of the city streets while Maliki has accused recently elected president Fouad Massoum of conspiring against the Constitution

    http://www.businessinsider.com/iraqi...-ouster-2014-8

    Developing story, but it seems like al-Maliki refuses to give up power in Baghdad. This could get ugly.

    Iraq is no stranger to situations getting ugly or uglier.

    Seriously?
    Now?

    They might as well just shot themselves in the head and leave the city to Isis.
    No wonder the Iraqian army keeps getting crushed in every single confrotation with Isis, they donīt even know who to listen to.

    Turkey elects a "new" president, and possibly a new system.

    I would put quotations around the word riot considering that it was probably started by people from outside the area who like to ruin protests so they can steal shit.

    Hope it wasn't the same way as David Carradine.
