A near thing

Bill survives a close encounter with the “American” “health” “care” establishment, if only by the skin of his teeth.

The mental stress of dealing with the health care system plus worry that I might be dying of cancer, coupled with the physical stress of the fast/weightlifting/vertigo issues has pretty much flattened me for today, but I’m feeling better now, and hope to be back to normal tomorrow. Although my neck is as sore as if I’d been stabbed in the throat three or four times. Probably because I was stabbed in the throat three or four times.

Good LORD. Glad you lived to tell the tale, buddy.

The real irritant is dealing with the so-called “health care system.”

First off, it is filled with ignorant mask-notavax worshiping religiuous fanatics, whom I would call brainwashed but for the fact they apparently have no brains. Or if they do, they are smooth as billiard balls.

Second, all doctors now work for insurance companies. The docs might not understand this, but the insurance companies tell them how to treat patients, and pay them for doing so. If the insurance companies tell them no, then they can’t do their job and treat their patients. So they don’t work for patients, they work for payer institutions – ie, insurance companies.

I’ve been fucking around with trying to get my cataracts fixed ever since I discovered I had them back in June. When I searched my in insco website for local in network docs, of the five or so it puked up, the first was dead, the second had been retired for five year, and none of the remainder did cataract surgery,

The clinic I visited yesterday has plenty of docs, but all of them are out of my network.

I’m still trying to determine what that means in terms of ultimate costs to me. I have three hours budgeted for today to spend on the phone seeing if I can find out what I will be covered for, what the copay will be, what the actual fee to me will be.

This is both insane and deliberate, I believe. I actually found myself saying to my sister yesterday, “You know what? I’d almost take single payer if it meant I could just go to a doc and get my shit fixed.”

And I hate single payer, because it give complete control of your life to the government. (Can you imagine what a single payer gubbmint system would be doing today to force the notavax into your body?)

But that is the ultimate goal, I believe, to make our current system so fucking stupid and unworkable that people finally throw up their hands and say, “Fine. Bring on single payer.”

Kill them all. Kill every employee of a health insurance company, every regulator, every politician who’s added to the mess, every hospital administrator. Probably every practitioner, nurse, and receptionist because weeding out the good ones would be impossible. Definitely kill every employee of the medical schools. That’ll lead to hardship for a few years, but there’ll be at least a chance that whatever grows to replace it won’t be contaminated with the disease of the current system.

But that is the ultimate goal…

Always has been. There are numerous lefty “goods” to this scam. Starting with rigging the election and on to finally crashing the health care system.

My sister tells me today that the shortage of nurses has hit her town. She said she knows of offerings for temporary nursing positions that start at 5K up to 10K – per week.

She also said that no more than 45% of the doctors and nurses in her system have been vaxxed.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
