Pullin' a Goldberg

Shorter Megan:

Correction: Community Rating Turns Out to Be Even Worse Than I Thought:
The fact that I don't know what I'm talking about is central to my point.

Tell us more about "premia". Oh, right. Your spellcheck program doesn't know it, so it can't exist.

NoT--I read your comments on Megan's post and have to disagree with you. You say Megan cannot talk about healthcare because she didn't know a particular figure. If this standard was applied broadly, no one would be able to comment or discuss any topic (as no one knows every figure associated with a given topic).

The real point to this post was that Megan not only managed to screw up every single number in ridiculous ways, she has no clue that individual & group plans are different.

Well, that and that her fans are just as clueless.

As for "Premia"

The OED defines it as a plural for "premium". You can check it at the following link

Obviously since you don't know how to spell (that is why you use a spell checker) your bloviations are pointless. Dick!

Whatever, I also looked it up and found it NOT there. But fine, premia is a fucking word.... that no one ever fucking uses except for pretentious idiots.

As for Nony, I think basing arguments around state health care systems require you know basic things about those systems. Megan clearly doesn't. True, I am using her lack of knowledge on this one figure as a "proxy" (as Megan like to say about a million times a day) but it strikes me as relevant. I mean, I don't know any chemists that are fucking solid but don't know Avogadro's number.

Shorter Nutella: "I'm full of shit, but whatever...I'm still right."

Isn't that one of the things you hate so much about Megan?

Fine, Alan.

I'm wrong.
