* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Generally speaking you may find it easier to communicate if you use the words you actually mean.  We tend to be a pretty straightforward bunch that way; we're not going to assume that you're trying to mislead us.

Do you take Noah's flood literal?

And exactly what part of "Literal" do you not know the meaning of?

Do you think your statements are mythological?

I thought you didn't approve of writing myths.

I take the story about Noah's flood to be just that - a story in a book, written by someone who was divinely inspired.  If the author thought it was a literal thing, and he used words to convey that point, who am I to argue?

My point was, as you apparently missed it, people should use the words that mean what they're trying to say.

If ObamaCare is upheld as written, will that be good for you?  bad for you? you don't know?

At present the only plus I think for me, is it would keep my daughter on my insurance until she is 25.

For others, it might not be so good. An example is North Carolina state employees who will be mandated to buy family coverage, but will not be eligible for any of the subsidies from the Exchanges.

For the time being I think I will be ok as long as my husband can hang on to his job (which is who is insurance is through). My parents will be in trouble, as will lots of other seniors I know.
I just worry about how implementation will go and consequences (unintended or intentional) that will follow. It seems that if this was so important that it would have been handled more carefully and that those voting on it would have read it in the first place.  :(

Someone mentioned something about the delay of the mandated coverage provided by large companies; I personally think that was a political move to help the Dems in the mid-term elections. If this whole bill was supposed to be so great then why delay? And what is the deal with all the congressmen complaining about potentially being subject to the same law as the rest of us? I liked the comment about them being too good for what they deemed good enough for us "peasants."
