Access to health care?

August 18th, 2012


There are days when life in the U.S.A. really pisses me off, and yesterday was one of them.  We are, what, the ONLY developed country without available, accessible health care ready and waiting for its population?  My dogs get better health care than I do, and I will be damned if I will give some HEALTH INSURANCE company my hard-earned money when what I need is HEALTH CARE.  And I can’t call the vet for me.  Thanks to Dog for the Red Wing Care Clinic, which I give a chunk to each time I go.  Even without considering my parent’s veterans benefits (both were in WWII), they were covered well by Medicare and $102/month for Part B coverage.  I’m counting the days until I’m 65, and can get Medicare and reasonably priced supplemental care coverage.

When these idiots are talking about dismantling Medicare, THAT gets my blood pressure up, HOW DARE THEY.  “PRIVATIZE!”  Privatize Medicare, privatize Social Security — privatize my fat my ass…  The point is clear, they’re aiming to eliminate the surplus population with their draconian policies.  Over my dead body!  Oh, right, that’s exactly it…

Anyway, joys of self-employment and our damned “insurance” system… I had a cracked tooth, it started ages ago, and what little was left of it started screaming and I just couldn’t take it any longer:


OMD, what a relief… much better… much much better!!!
