I think Tom Hanks as Woody and Time Allen as Buzz Lightyear in all the Toy Story movies. They are both so believable as their characters and you really believe in their friendship. Fantastic movies.
Are these guys inhabiting an alternate universe? The point that was made about healthcare costs is however relevant and true which is why if they are so brilliant they would be advocating for abandoning the employment based health care coverage in lieu for a single payer delivery system. The employers would be off the hook for health care coverage and that would be a huge burden lifted off their shoulders. The complaints about the regulations being onerous well they may be less onerous if health care coverage were taken off their plates. The “weird political philosophy” that President Obama has is something that is in their heads because President Obama is so far away from socialism, Bernie Sanders maybe but President Obama no way.

By this time the American people should realize that this debt ceiling crisis is a man made one. The debt ceiling has never been used as a loaded gun pointed at the economy before, this is the first time. The GOP is on a tear to bring down the President and they don’t care about collateral damage. I have to say that situation would make for a really interesting paper on the differences between Pelosi as Speaker and Boehner as Speaker. The accepted wisdom in Washington was that the GOP held themselves as a disciplined block of votes whereas the democrats were all over the place, sometimes it looked like herding sheep, except for the time of Pelosi as Speaker. Boehner now as Speaker is stuck with trying to find his sheep let alone herd them back into formation. Is it simply the phenomena of the tea party or was it the exceptional skill of Pelosi that made her so productive?

My personality is so much like my father's that my mother used to get mad about it. That was before he passed away, I guess two of us was a bit much for one person to take occasionally. Her getting mad about it didn't happen often but when it did, my father and I would laugh about it together, secretly, so she wouldn't hear.
I started thinking of material things, such as, would I want 200 hundred more books? No, because I have at least 200 books, I have just added a few that I haven’t started yet and I am running out of shelves and bookcases. The same goes with shoes and handbags, can’t wear them all or have the room to properly store them. Books, shoes and handbags are my material weaknesses, but I don’t have the logistical capacity for more of them, which is fine because they are simply possessions anyway, and you can’t take them with you in the end.
Speaking of the end, I might be open to the concept of having 200 hundred lives. I think that one of the “tragedies” of human life is the finite part of being alive. One day you are here and the next day you are gone. Sometimes in that one life, there may have been a crossroads where the choice you made put you on the path towards the right and you will never know what would have happened if you had chosen to go left. What would the journey have held for you then?
Having the ability to have 200 hundred lives with the capacity of remembering each and every past life would afford me the opportunity to really be a free spirit. It would even allow me to live recklessly, foolishly, without fear. I might eventually find a way to exorcise all my demons and really get to know myself and all my hidden talents and passions. I wonder how many lives I would have to burn through before I was able to really get my act together? My prayer would be to eventually evolve into the best possible me there is. I would be curious to know, that after hopefully learning and understanding myself well enough to become the best me, would I begrudge that last life or would I peacefully accept that the 200th lifetime would be my last? I would hope that at the end I would leave this earth graciously and at peace.
My husband mentioned money and that he would want 200 of a million or better yet 200 of a billion dollars. What is interesting to me is that I didn’t even for one second go to money in my mind. I immediately went to, like I wrote in the beginning, books, shoes and then handbags. It was only when I realized that I didn’t have the room in my house that I thought of 200 more lives so that I can play do over with my choices in life. Since I clearly don’t jump on the money aspect of life, I wonder if that could possibly mean that it would take quite a few lifetimes before I got the money thing squared away? But like I said above with the books, shoes and handbags, you can’t take it with you, not even money. So, I like my choice better.
