Nobody’s Absurdities, No. 66
The other day I read about a woman who sued a hospital in Texas for sending her a bill she felt was unfair. The bill was for taking her temperature in the emergency room. She was outraged, because after sitting for nine hours with a broken leg, and not getting seen, she finally left. But, some nurse had taken her temperature, and sent her a $250 bill.
So… what? Was some cop from Mexico having his head put back on, therefore the delay? If they can charge $250 for taking a temperature, can they charge you $80 for a piece of ice?
Well, according to what my insurance agent said today…yup.
Here in St. Louis, one of my best friends, Ramonda, called me to tell me that her husband had a blood clot in his leg. So his doctor did some vein work on it in the hospital, where he caught a nasty infection afterwards, and so…they just CUT THE LEG OFF!
Why waste a good hospital bed?
And here’s what’s absurd--- Ramonda accepted that obvious hospital mistake. It was certainly
not the hospital’s fault.
Let’s face it…Disneyland is run better than most hospitals. As for my friend Ramonda--- she hasn’t been the same since she left the building with Elvis.
Want more? In my own family, I watched my father suffering a stroke right before my eyes in front of an MD on a Friday night. The MD told him to see his neurologist on Monday. I’m not that
stupid, so I took him to a hospital emergency ward…and due to a patient overload; he was put in a room to see a doctor on Monday.
By the time Monday afternoon rolled around, his brain was so filled with blood they couldn’t see his brain through the CAT scan. Of course, I didn’t find THAT fact out until a year later when they still
couldn’t get an image through all the dried up blood.Lesson:
Don’t have a stroke on the weekend. You can get shot---but save the heart attack for Tuesday, especially
if you are over sixty. (You think I’m kidding?)
Go on…go to any hospital, and sit in the corridors, and pick a person next to you, and just ask how they’re doing. There is a 50-50 chance that you will hear horror stories you thought could only happen on a Twilight Zone train to hell.
It all started with the HMO program…about the time that Hillary’s great secret meetings were happening and the grab for the Universal Health care, we were told… “failed.”
Here’s what they didn’t
tell you. Her secret meetings did not
fail; they just went ahead and started implementing Universal Health Care with its first step: HMO’s.
, didn’t we think HMO’s were wonderful? Doctors were now forced to see every patient ten minutes or he wouldn’t get his “pay.” The assembly line of “get in, get out, take your pill, go home,” continues with great bravado. It’s a real McDonald’s style pharmaceutical company’s dream.
“I’m the pusher man...I’m your pusher man”…
So, when people say we have such a great health care system here, I just have to laugh, because it USED to be great, before the Clintons. Let me be frank…the people that say this…have money. Many of them are conservative talk show hosts.
But, don’t take my
word for it…. Let’s compare:
Canada has Universal Health Care, and it is said you will wait for hours to be treated at an emergency room. That’s already here, especially in the big cities with nightly gunshots wounds to fix up. You might get lucky and get in right away… but then again, you might not.
They tell you to hurry to the hospital, minutes count…But, hold
that stroke, will ya? There was a gang fight tonight of illegal’s that needs our attention, we only have two doctors here. You
, the legal American citizen, are over 60. You
, are now dying-- but you must sacrifice your life AND money to the illegal who is young…you lose.
In Canada you will see a doctor who will tell you that you’re sick, you need an operation, but you might wait two years.
In American, if you are sick, you will have to wait sometimes as much as five months to get into see the specialist---almost the same thing.
Operations are quicker than in Canada, but not by much. Here you might wait three months as opposed to six. Besides, no matter how serious the operation, you are practically thrown out the hospital door the next day.
It never used to be like this. If you were sick or needed immediate care, you were rushed to the hospital, and seen immediately. Your stay there would be two or three weeks sometimes, until you got well. Women were giving a few days to rest after childbirth.
Not anymore. We now have HMO’s, and PPO’s and $80 ice cubes.
The HMO’s have forced many companies to have to charge more for insurance. Many Americans just can’t afford it anymore.
In Canada, immigrants are covered automatically at taxpayer expense having never controlled a dollar to the system and pay no premises. That same thing happens here, and God forbid you have a pre-existing
condition. You'd have to move to Mexico, change your name to Jose, and come back as an illegal to get help.
And here’s the madness
of it all---most illnesses can be prevented. We are a fat
nation… and why? Because most of the food is filled with meaningless and harmful toxic…junk. The FDA has made sure that the boxes of stuff in your grocery store holds nothing for good for you…and like nicotine, lots of the stuff has addicting chemicals.
Fast food, and so much of our food has MSG, which is why it tastes so good, but it’s that sweet little chemical that’s responsible for much of our diabetes.
Diet soda, literally,
can destroy your brain over a lifetime.
where I’m going with this. You should just leave now if you don’t want to hear it, but here’s the deal:
Universal Health Care will kill millions. Millions will die due to the fact that it will be left up to the government whether you get treated or not.
They will decide, not you
your family… if you get treatment. And if that doesn’t kill you, the taxes you will be paying will. In Canada 55% of their earnings goes to health care.
And since the baby boomers are a BIG worry to our now bankrupt government, do you actually think that they are going to want to prolong
Do you see a pattern here?
They want us all to drive little tiny cars where we can be killed much easier; they continue to put fluoride in our water, (It actually lowers IQ.) Cell phones are already proven to be causing brain tumors with prolonged use, the FDA is letting poisonous food into America, and now, Obama wants us all to gather in little encamps of small cities, taking mass transit to work.
One major virus could cull thousands.
In the meantime, stem-cell research will keep the rich alive till they are all 150 years old. Only the rich will be able to afford real health food, bio-identical hormones, HGH, and bank their stem-cells to save them from illnesses.
What? You think they wanted stem-cells to cure diseases? You bet
They will bank their own stem-cells to repair their own organs when they get sick at 86, so they can live forever and control the planet.
Okay, we’d do the same thing if we were rich, but
Do you think YOU will get stem-cell rejuvenation if your 60-years old from the government? Will YOU get bio-identical hormone replacement to keep you alive, and disease free, living off of Social Security forever?
Now, can you think of a better way to save the earth through population control reduction, than Universal Health Care?
Yes, Universal Health Care…a legal way to kill millions…in the name of compassion.
They’ve taken creative capitalism to a whole new level.
But, all is not lost. Remember, despite their dreams of immortality, rich people can get addicted to McDonalds just like the rest of us, and they can still get hit by a hybrid taking their bike rides...and sooner or later, the boomers will realize they are being slaughtered…slowly.
Let’s just hope they still have enough brain cells left to figure it out before it’s too late, or we will all be "punked."
