Recently I had a little scare that fortunately turned out to be nothing. But it did have me spend some quality time with health care professionals. Now most of the time I find doctors periodically need to be reminded that they serve you and not the other way around. They start feeling a little too self-important and forgetful of you as a human being. But still most of the time they are OK. But what I found out to be the most reveling is when you talk to their support staff.
I was also surprised of how many responded to my questions on how they felt about health care reform. The overwhelming number were for a universal health care or medicare type system for all.
I am one of the fortunately ones in that I am on Medicare and have taken advantage of their buy up insurance plan.. This means that I pay $0 to my Primary and only $20 to specialist. My meds of which I take 7 only cost me $4 apiece for $36 a month average. A recent colonscopy cost me only $20 and that included the removal of the benign tumor. Any lab work I have done cost me $0 and all of this for a fee of %99 a month. If we can do this for our seniors and disabled why cant we do this of all.
For more information and insight on the problems go to PBS Frontline and Bill Moyers and Company for a unique and eye opening info.
Well I have been on my soapbox long enough but pay attention and be ready to take to the streets if these bastards make a move on us. Finally never believe them when they tell you it is not personal for it ablsoutley is.
I have begun assembling a list of materials I will need for a bookcase/TV stand to replace the clunky old entertainment system we have right now. But first I need to finish the design of it and I can't seem to settle on a final configuration.
Reading the second novel of Bruce Desliva "Cliff Walk" and again I am amazed at how some books are just easy and fun to read and he seems to have the knack.
