Link dump

I realized that I tweet, Facebook and Google+ articles all the time. So I figured that every so often, maybe once a week, I'll comb back through them and see what kind of interesting (or crazy or offensive or awe-inspiring) kind of things the internet handed me.

  1. Ironically, "The Men Behind the War on Women" reminded me of one of two ways that Obamacare has made my life worse. Who would have thought that the nursing mother provision on page 1239 would eliminate cyclist showers? New laws have all sorts of unintended consequences.

    The other way is my old company used it as an excuse to eliminate retiree medical, effective when the "reform" takes effect. Needless to say, I can't say I'm a big fan of Federal Medical so far.
