 This Is Sparta

Chato Stewart: Is this madness? or Is this Sparta?


You might not get this cartoon if you have not seen the point in the movie 300 where the Persian Messenger offends King Leonidas.  The messages get enraged and indigent that the king would be so obstinate and the *MEME is born.

Persian Messenger: This is Madness!
Leonidas: Madness? This is Sparta!

While this is a HEAVILY VIOLENT and graphic movie, this war cry got me thinking the other day.  And well, my conclusions was it was all madness!

MEME = The term Internet meme (/ˈmiːm/; meem)[1] is used to describe a concept that spreads via the Internet.  It like everything on the internet days you just have to look and you will find it.  The other day I was  looking for insurance quote, we all know the importance of health insurance, but finding a quot today can be tricky… You could make a few MEME just from that idea. I was talking to a facbook frind who told me to buy health insurance online from
So, I been checking them out and got a free quote.

I did learn something too:

Starting on January 1, 2014, the Affordable Care Act will allow more people to be eligible for Medicaid and funding will grow. By law, all legal residents and U.S. citizens having income up to 133 percent of the poverty line will be eligible for coverage. States are not required to abide by this rule in order to receive Medicaid funding. Some states have elected to stay with current eligibility standards and funding guidelines.
