Why can't all doctors take all insurances? This crap drives me nuts.

Tango, because regulation does not allow all insurance companies to compete countrywide. The doctors have a choice of which insurance companies they accept based upon the terms laid out by the insurance companies. Since the doctor is the head of his/her own business, they can decide to accept the insurance companies' terms or not. Forcing doctors to accept all insurances will ensure that the best doctors will accept none.

But, you have hit a big nail on the head. We don't need Obamacare, we need all insurance companies to be able to compete in every state of the union.

Oh, and doctors can refuse any and all insurance if they want to do so.

Yeah, and then you get other places that treat you like you're a second rate citizen if you DON'T have insurance...

The poor don't need it and neither do the rich. No person can be refused care because of no insurance. Individuals can negotiate with the doctors, and all doctors will negotiate price for service. Most people are afraid to even try to haggle because it is not a part of American society, other than at car lots or pawn shops.

Here's another question, anyone ever try to haggle on fine clothes from a gentleman's store?

How critical is scope mount alignment? I can understand it if they're way out of line but will a couple of thousandths really matter?

No that $hit don't matter, the farther you get away from the target the more you have to compensate left or right, It makes shooting more fun and challenging.

What I want to know is can a person mix and match mounts? For some dang reason I have some oddballs lying around.
