Kaiser? As in Kaiser Permanente? Wonder what his agenda was.Though some forms of group "managed care" did exist prior to the 1970s, they came about chiefly through the influence of U.S. President Richard Nixon and his friend Edgar Kaiser. In discussion in the White House on February 17, 1971, Nixon expressed his support for the essential philosophy of the HMO, which John Ehrlichman explained thus: "All the incentives are toward less medical care, because the less care they give them, the more money they make."

I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
I'm curious why she selected the venue that she did. What was it about Wal-Mart that brought on the twerks? Why not a mall? Or a fast food joint? I guess we should just be glad it wasn't an elementary school.
