GF going in for ear surgery.
    #452774 - 07/29/10 08:28 AM (6 years, 4 months ago)

What's wrong.

It's infected too.

Glad she was able to get a medical card, because her moms insurance wouldn't cover it.

Man I hate private sector insurance companies.

Greedy bastards, I hope someday insurance goes 100% public.

Sorry to hear that man, best wishes to her for a speedy and sucessful recovery.

As a side note, don't buy into the propaganda about the public system being better.  Our current "public system" Medicare and Medicaid deny more claims than any other insurance, not only in total number of denials but also in percentage of claims denied.

Again best wishes to your girl.

The Lord sampled some of that fine herb that he placed all around the world.  The stativas inspired him and he created the platypus. Realizing that he was stoned off his ass, he put down the tools and took another mighty toke from the heavenly bong and became couchlocked for the entire 7th day.

Hmmm... or something like that.

Sorry to hear man, going deaf would pretty much ruin my life. And I can't imagine how much it must such to have ear surgery.


Hope she recovers soon:thumbup:

:facepalm:

:shitstorm:

And maybe you shouldn't buy into the propaganda that the private system isn't pulling an overhead that is so ridiculously high for an insurance company that it should be considered robbery.

Two can play the "oh you beleive in propaganda game."


But yea, thanks for the best wishes yo.

-ninja edit-

Also "Medicare, the publicly managed plan for the elderly in the United States, spends 5 percent of each health care dollar on administrative expenses, compared with the 17 percent devoured by private insurers on average."

So if we were to give a public insurance X money and a private company the same.

The public insurance would pay out more money back to the people.

Maths.

Get well soon!
Do you mean her medical weed card?
I haven't been able to get mine... but I haven't really tried that hard.
Man I am still up from last night even with that xanax.

Oh I wasn't sticking up for the profiteers.  I think there are ways to make them tow the line.

In my time I haven't seen anything that is run by the government that is efficient, except for them wasting our (as in we the blue collar working folks) hard earned money.AMA report card on private and govt insurance companies.

Well you can say that.

But then I can say.

"Countries with a public insurance plan for the population immediately save over 10 percent on every health care dollar by cutting out private insurance overhead."

It doesn't matter what you have seen.

It matters what the facts say.

The private sector literally CANNOT be as efficient as the public in terms of health care.

-edit-

To early in the morning and to cranky.

Yea, it's cool.

My personal setting has hit a writers block.

It follows the rise and fall of an alexander the great like dwarf.

I think I'm going to record what goes on in the games to write a narrative afterwords.

I'm thinking about submitting some of it to my colleges literary journal/magazine thing.

I might just submit some other research project I've already done.

I'm going to have a lot of free time next school year because the GF is going away to a state college before I go there next year.

The pressure is on for me to look like a great prospective student, and even though I personally feel like I suck at composition. I like writing probably why I am a member of the a forum.

I was into Lit and writing, but like so many others the internet has ruined my composition.

I don't like having to write within the confines of somebody else's rules. Fuck MLA

The internet has boosted mine.

I just write whatever I'm writing first, then transfer into MLA.

I went to my English professor to proofread draft after draft after draft.

Also just sitting down and talking about my writing problems with him made me more aware of what I was doing wrong.

He was cool to, he talked about how stuff like lol and idk make perfect since. Because the purpose of language is to express ideas with as little effort as possible.

Well, your teachers are just wrong.

lol

I'd just go up to them and ask them if this is true.

Because that is what it is for.

I'd openly call a teacher a moron to their face if they didn't agree.

I finished school before they caught on to people buying their papers online :lol:

I'd like to go back some day, but I refuse to do any general education.

Now the companies that sell papers online, also use that same database for school to report whether or not a paper is copied.

Yea, General education blows.

I wish I could of skipped history and speech.

History because history classes are super fucking boring with bad teachers, and speech because to be honest I didn't need the class.

I pretty much love all other subject though, other than straight math.

Just plain math classes can be as boring as if not more than history classes.
