Justifying Insanity!

MAL emailed this to me Sunday and I had to share it with you….some of it, we’re well aware of, some of it is pretty clever and ALL are true!:

“Critical things to think about in 2022. 

I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life.  I have never wished to live anywhere else.  This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.   But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is changing… for the worse.  No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, no matter how much I pray, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.  I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends.  I look at people I have known all my life–so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never have express as their own.  I think that I may well have entered the Rod Sterling’s Twilight Zone.  We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind & moral soul!   

You can’t justify this kind of insanity:

  • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
  • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

-Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

  • It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine with taxpayer money.
  • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

-People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

  • People who have never been to college, and those who have fully paid their college tuition  should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
  • Immigrants with tuberculosis, polio and other diseases are welcomed & waved right in, but you’d better be able to prove that you and your dog are vaccinated.
  • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern border are welcome.
  • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care for illegals is not.
  • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
  • If you cheat in an election nothing happens to you, but if you point out the mathematical errors of that election you are a conspiracy theorist & held in disdain.
  • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.  (Z:  Love this one!)
  • We have historically & currently witnessed other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it still seems like a great plan for the US.
  • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
  • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of their rights.

* People who enter the country by breaking the law (illegally), and are temporally separated for the child’s protection, sued US taxpayers and are demanding  $450,000 per person for “emotional distress”,and the current administration is seriously considering it… (that’s more than the 9/11 families or our military personnel will ever see).

  • Then there is the whole Afghanistan fiasco, vaccine/mandates, endless COVID variants, election cheating, a deficient president, violence/rioting in the cities, defunding the police, confiscating my guns while arming terrorists, etc., etc.·

And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.  We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is okay !”

PRETTY GOOD ONES, HUH?  Only they’re too true to even smile………Agree with most of them?

Z  (thanks, Mal)

    IOW . . . you could be born In the USA and die in a totally different country without ever having to move.

    The US has been proven to be a violent, racist, greedy country built by slaves under the rule of privileged white males who continue to exploit the poor, jail minorities, and deprive women of their rights. So, why should illegal immigrants be denied the opportunity to enjoy its many blessings !!

  2. It all makes sense, when you realize that THAT is the goal: to totally change the country, the culture.
    Only by changing the culture can they change us. Into slaves.

    Couple concepts come to mind.

    It is Hard to make things better but there is nothing easier than to screw things up.

    While those of us that contribute to the health of the country go about our work and our family and/or personal activities, paying our taxes, not bothering others, the communists and the deranged ‘activists’ never sleep, they are busy FUBARing things 24/7.

    Fixing this place is a tall order. What do I aim at? Where do I go? Who do I collaborate with? Who do I vote for especially when voting is a waste of time and accomplishes little if anything at all.

    Are we a ignorant stupid people? You be the judge. This Sunday officiating two travel basketball games with Derrick (white) with whom I’ve known for the past five years began a Covid conversation the details not worth repeating here until he launched into blaming Trump and extolling Biden’s handling of same. By the time he finished his apoplectic rant I refrained from shaking my head in disbelief. Repeating myself, I refuse to believe the GOP has anything resembling a lock on either the 2022 or 2024 elections Trump or no Trump. What I do believe is the blissful ignorance of a majority of voters along with the left counting and augmenting the votes where needed after which the republicans will crawl back into their holes and assume their vaunted fetal positions in lock step with their corrupt leader from Kentucky.

    Peter’s right, of course. He always is. I know several people who are absolutely convinced that the disaster Biden & Company has wrought upon the U.S. will guarantee a win in both Houses for the GOP next year. It’s sad, really — to see reasonably intelligent people kidding themselves to the point of delusion. All those nutbags who voted for Biden in 2020 are still out there. All the corrupt voting that went on in 2020 is now “well in place” for repeat performances well into the future. So then, why are these “reasonably intelligent people” convinced that America has had enough of the far left commie DNCers? Well, because Biden’s poll numbers are down. That’s what the pollsters are saying — only it isn’t true.

    First, examine who these pollsters are, and then ask, why would a reasonably intelligent person believe them? Broadcasting low poll numbers is a strategy for energizing the progressive base. It’s the same exact strategy employed during campaign seasons telling seniors that if Mr. X is elected, he’ll cut social security and medicare benefits. We call this “voter manipulation.” Who doesn’t know that if a pollster wants high numbers for Biden, they conduct their polls in NYC, Boston, Detroit, Baltimore, and Minneapolis? If they want to project low numbers, they conduct their polls in red states. And the question is, why would they do this? To demoralize the opposition when, on election day 2022, DNCers retain both houses of Congress. Winning is great but winning while at the same time demoralizing the opposition is even better.

    I am perplexed that none of these “reasonably intelligent” people are smart enough to figure it out and equally sad to think that any reasonable person thinks (in 2021) that it even matters which party destroys the American Republic. Even if the GOP did take back both houses of Congress — they’ve done that before and what did they do with that win? Not a damn thing. The painful truths are that (a) the left is politically smarter than the right, and (b) an abnormal America benefits GOPers as much as DNCers.

    Sorry folks, America’s goose is cooked — and only those who are eating a regular diet of hallucinogenic mushrooms could imagine that we’re on the verge of a new (political) great awakening, or that moving to another country offers a solution. Oh, and you remember all those Hollywood types that were moving out of America when Trump was elected? Yeah — they’re still here.

    BOCOPRO: “you could be born In the USA and die in a totally different country without ever having to move.” So true… amazing way to put it.

    ED…slaves or not, they are certainly changing the country for the worst….

    The mess of the supply chain
    BLM protests causing burned businesses, boarded up buildings
    Lockdown closing restaurants and shops
    hospitals full of patients
    less nurses and fire department workers
    Far less cops available
    Looting now scaring people into not going out to shop
    our children having missed almost 2 years of school where studies this morning show they learned very little
    American kids raised so badly that so many are on drugs.
    Allowing drugs to flow seemingly purposefully through our S Border
    Allowing SO many illegals, including terrorists, sick people, etc.
    I could go on.

    Yes, I wrote that list this morning before seeing these comments….because one must start to believe there’s INTENTION here.

    KID…yes, “It is Hard to make things better but there is nothing easier than to screw things up.”

    There is NOTHING this administration that’s done which benefits America.



    PETER: Yes, blaming Trump for the vax which probably saved more people than Biden could ever consider. I wish my 2 friends who died had been vaccinated. And that my friend still feeling after effects 9 months later had 😦

    I also wish immunity was considered and I wish testing was allowed to those who can’t or won’t have the vaccinations. That they aren’t is insane.
    That our kids are still wearing masks and NY is even insisting on vaxes for kids (I’m against it) when Dennis Prager did a breakdown of the number of kids dead from covid and it’s approx one in a MILLION (literally, numerically) is INSANITY……

    MUSTANG: “The painful truths are that (a) the left is politically smarter than the right, ”
    Well, you know you won’t get disagreement on THAT here….I’ve been saying this, we all have, for years.
    The good news is leftwing Biden supporting pollsters, too, are showing his numbers have even gone down more…some say to 41%.

    BUT unless we start working NOW on voting in 2024, it’ll be too late again to make substantial changes, and we’ll lose to fraud again.

    BOCOPRO …THIS is exactly what students learn in our country today “The US has been proven to be a violent, racist, greedy country built by slaves under the rule of privileged white males who continue to exploit the poor, jail minorities, and deprive women of their rights.”

    “Continue to exploit….built by slaves!” The ;’built by slaves’ is half true; except I remind people that slaves couldn’t even READ or were educated enough to DESIGN, to ENGINEER all those things “THEY” Built…….Someone I reminded of that recently said “isn’t that racist?” I said “I didn’t say slaves were too stupid to, I said they weren’t educated enough yet at that time to design and engineer what they were building….White educated men, our founding fathers among them, “DID THAT” no matter what Obama likes to claim. Today is a different story…and I’m grateful for that, for African Americans who do work hard at school and do so well in life, many of whom we don’t hear about enough.

    Your quote above, thankfully, is not believed by all…I heard a few young men on TV the other day who’d heard some negative thing against America had been said and they said “There are people who just don’t love our country!”….. Felt like a balm to hear that. And I also wouldn’t sell short the Black women who had two growing groups of Black men and women who are becoming Conservatives. We don’t hear enough about that, either.

    There is nothing democrats have done that benefits America. Go back as far as you want.

    KID….INTENT; it just seems SO SO intentional…..

    But as much as I couldn’t EVER stand the Democrats because I felt Republicans were more pro our founding’s father’s ideals…I didn’t hate O’Neil or Moynihan….I believe they still loved this country and wanted our best.
    I do NOT anymore…not with the Leftwinging Dems today. I’m counting on the less-Left leaning Dems …
    Heck, CNN even reported today that the White House bigwigs had summoned some of their people, and other “news’ venues, to the WH to ask them to be NICER TO BIDEN IN THE NEWS. CNN revealed THAT?
    Astonishing…. Is there someone who allowed THAT among the very far left JERKS there?

    ALSO: Very early this morning, I put CNN on to see if they were covering the FOX SQUARE CHRISTMAS TREE that was just lit with great joy and was set on fire last night….. No coverage, of course.

    BUT…you should have heard the lies and mischaracterizations toward Devin Nunes…who apparently now represents all Republicans and exposes that they ONLY have EVER wanted power and money and THAT is (supposedly) why Nunes is leaving his position to work as CEO of Trump’s big new thing…whatever it is.
    I HATE the idea of Nunes doing it myself because Trump’s not quite learned the kind of people he needs …(he sure didn’t pick a lot of great ones for the WH…now look at the MEadows’ book mess!, etc.)….Who he needed was a far more outspoken, truly articulate, exciting man or woman to take over……there’s milquetoast Nunes, who I actually like as far as ideology, but…oy.
    Anyway, I think it was John Berman on CNN (i dont know who’s who there) and the SMIRK on his ugly face and the HORRIBLY stupid inferences he was making as he RIPPED Nunes and ALL Republicans…surmisals.;..all leaning only FAR LEFT, was breath taking.


  12. geeez2014 says:

  14. kidme37 says:

    Well, that’s where we differ. You look at individuals and feel this person may be Ok, that person…
    To me, none of that mattered or matters.

    LBJ (the democrat party) still stole the social security funds that I paid into since I’m 15. Now they say SS is going bankrupt. That has a real life effect on me. Then all the other stuff the democrat party did those years. 100% of the anti-black legislation. etc.

    Then Carter, The USA was #1 in education before the dems created the Fed Dept of Education, now we’re 17th.

    Then Clinton – open the floodgates to Chinese products putting US businesses out of business, now we don’t even produce things like Steel that we’d need if we get into a war with China, we’ll have to ask China to send it to us, Add in a multitude of other products that are shipped in from other countries because of the clinton (democrat) trade deals and we’re at the mercy of them. Going to be big problems imo, the least of which are high prices which we already have to deal with.

    obama – say no more

    Now biden. I mention names above but it is not the people it is the party. biden doesn’t make decisions or create strategies. It’s all the democrat party.

    Now it’s clear the republicans have no intention of helping America. They do nothing of significance when they have the majority. They helped get rid of Trump.

    Just hitting the high notes here. They’ve destroyed the country beyond the point of no return. I know you prefer to remain optimistic but I just can’t find any way to join you.

    Some new name woman is running for congress in Ohio with ads on TV “I’m a Trump Conservative.. we need to get control the border, yada yada yada all the current talking points”

    I laughed ouit loud. So what. What is she going to do if she’s even serious. The repubs allowed all this stuff the happen. The idiots in Kentucky and S. Carolina can’t even vote out the anti-American McChuckles or Graham.

    I’m investing zero interest in all of it any more. If an opportunity presents itself for me to make some positive contribution I will. I don’t expect that to happen.

    Well, I hope the repubs get the majority agian jsut so we don’t hear so much form pelosi and schumer, but that’s about all I expect to get out of the deal.

    Cordially. Really. I’m not mad, I just don’t see how things are different than this, or how there is any chance for anything significant to improve.

    The irony is in the fact most of the old Democratic presidents like FDR, Truman, JFK, plus many others, today would be appalled at their party and would align with the GOP just like our N.

    Oh. And you’re welcome, Z!


  17. geeez2014 says:

    KID…maybe it’s just that I can’t bear the idea of this country going so so far down as Biden’s pushing it. And I DO still believe in the people, though I’ve been one of the earliest and loudest voices against the BS indoctrination in our schools….
    I TOTALLY get your point when you suggest that “You look at individuals and feel this person may be Ok, that person…” You’re 100% correct. And I even sometimes, as I write that stuff, wonder “BUT ARE THERE ENOUGH?” I have learned from teachers and from experience over the years that IF THERE IS ONE, THERE ARE MANY MORE YOU DON”T KNOW ….and I believe that’s true.
    And so I kind of CLING to GOOD news as much as possible!

    No, we’re not arguing…….I can just got overly sensitive to what I believe is hopeless negativity and maybe I sound argumentative in my responses. I don’t mean to be.

    I hope you’re wrong, too, but I SURE do understand how you can feel like you do.

    MAL: EXCELLENT point…I, too, believe there are centrist Dems who could be Republicans today…and ARE, some of them in the public eye…Who knows how many who AREN’T? What’s it MEAN that there are young Black groups of people turning to Conservatism?

    THE REPUBLICANS MUST, as KID and MUSTANG say, DO SOMETHING. If Blacks ARE coming out of the lib closet, WE must be there waiting with candy to welcome them in. Not freebies, but a REASON to love America; work with Blacks on criminality, on education….welcome them.

    You KNOW MANY of those Virginia families fighting CRT are NOT REPUBLICAN…all colors, all ethnicities (lots of Iranian parents, Chinese…) THEY are fighting the Left…….we need to give them a reason to TURN RIGHT.


    Even TRUMP, while MARVELOUS in all he DID, wasn’t great at drawing comparisons to why he did things and the Left is failing………….LOUDLY. Or maybe the media sat on his words, didn’t honestly cover what HE wanted Americans to hear. Could be.

    FOLKS….I have an elderly cousin in Michigan whose 28 yr old granddaughter just finally killed herself with drug abuse….heroin, coke, meth……..The West Coast branch of our family (mine) had NO idea till today she’d been a big time addict for 10 years…went to rehab multiple times and would do drugs again immediately!
    She was in rehab again Saturday when she collapsed…brain dead. Heart strong. by tomorrow, they’ll take her off the meds (if she hasn’t had a heart attack by then) and harvest her organs.

    Did you know some hospitals do an HONOR WALK where docs and nurses line up in the corridor to the OR through which the body is wheeled on a gurney…honoring the dead for giving organs to save lives of people in need? I keep crying at the thought of it, it seems so emotional!!!

    WHAT is going ON that our young people are doing HEROIN? Orson Bean’s 28 yr old granddaughter died about 3 months ago from heroin laced with Fentanyl! She had everything to live for! Beautiful, educated……but was an addict.

    Please pray for the Otto family in Michigan and Texas.

    America…get a grip. Give our kids HOPE like we had…….ugh.


  19. MAL says:

    You know, Z, since the late 50’s – early 60’s I’ve wondered why our government continually ignored all the havoc the Mexican cartel was causing, primarily marijuana, but later heroin and other more stronger drugs. We could easily have gone in and wiped them out. It could’ve been done as a joint cooperative effort with the Mexican Government (who undoubtedly were being paid off, also). With or without them, it could’ve and should’ve been done and no one could’ve blamed us. They still couldn’t if we were to do it today. However, they have gotten much stronger and wealthier over the last 60-70 years. And better armed. It wouldn’t surprise me to eventually see them take over the government and military.
    Something needs to be done……and soon!


  20. kidme37 says:

    Mal, Back to Z’s Intentional comment. Yes, this could be solved very easily if the government actually wanted to. Therefore the problem is intentional.

    I personally think our government is making lots of money from the drugs in the USA.


  21. geeez2014 says:

    Kid…you believe WHAT could be solved very easily? All the nasty stuff Biden’s done?

    Do you believe all politicians are okay with drugs here because of the money the gov’t makes? What do they really care how much money the gov’t makes? I do remember all the rumors of planes with drugs using the airport near the Clintons in Arkansas…going in and out. Do you?

    MAL: I’m not sure how easy it would be to wipe the cartels out but you make a great point. WHY NOT? We certainly have enough PROOF and there are certainly enough parents who’d LOVE the flow of drugs STOPPED.


  22. MAL says:

    Kid, what you said about LBJ and S/S going BK is spot on. S/S will be around until we no longer have a government due to our being bankrupt because after LBJ “borrowed” (stole) the funds, it became an endless pit into which we have to keep throwing more and more dollars via borrowing. Medicare? Does anyone know how much it costs in salaries, health care and retirement for their staff? Then we have Medicare Supplements being offered to cover what Medicare doesn’t. Thats having insurance on insurance, and even more expense. Where does the stupidity stop? They have costs that need to come out of that fund, too. We’re lucky if we see 20% of what we pay. (I don’t have a supplement for that reason, and only have Medicare because I have no option). I also got V.A. Tri-care about 5 or 6 years ago which helps. Medicine was so affordable before LJB’s “Great Society” was established. No one is watching how much Medicare is being ripped off. I’ve seen it. I could save so much money for Medicare if only they’d let me buy my own stuff and have them reimburse me for their 80% share of coverage.

    Kid…you believe WHAT could be solved very easily?

    . border

  24. kidme37 says:

    I may get this down to 10 words or less someday 🙂
    1968, broken leg, 45 days in hospital, 120 shots morphine, 2 orthopedic surgeries -total price $1800.00. Eighteen Hundred. Be a million today at least. You’d have to visit the twilight zone to find the inflation index to explain that.
    yea, government has totally FUBAR’d the medical industry too. They’ve Fubar’d everything to be honest but I don’t want to do that much typing.

    I can’t imagine how many people are dying penniless, who were wealthy when the docs got a hold of them in old age there are. And lots of families in debt no doubt too. Goes to my last post. They want every last penny. And they’ll get most of it too.


  25. kidme37 says:

    Drugs? Simple. We tell Mexico they stop the cartels or we do it for them. Use the military. Think Mexico is ready to go to war with the USA?
    To me it is simple. If the US government doesn’t want something happen it’s not going to be happening at the level drugs are happening. Put a death penalty on drug dealers.

    Politicians don’t have any control over what the government does regards drugs or much of anything else of significance. The government is owned.


  26. geeez2014 says:

    KID: The government is owned by WHOM?

    I thought that’s the list you meant, but I don’t see them as EASY problems with the VILE people in this country so HAPPY to look at that list very differently than we do. I hear from a few people “We can take MORE immigrants in…we have plenty of everything here” (drives me nuts)

    Education? SO many teachers are indoctrinated, how do you FIX that?

    I see these things because it’s like abortion: You can’t argue abortion is killing because too many people actually believe a fetus will NOT become a person.

    You can’t argue education, borders, drugs, etc., because there are people who’ll NEVER believe all those nightmares (for US) are actually BAD for America, or WRONG (“what’s wrong with drugs?”)

    see what I mean? How EASY would that be??

  28. MAL says:

    Kid, I might have mentioned this previously but from 1955 – 1962 we had 4 children and no insurance. Most employers didn’t offer it because it really wasn’t needed. The hospital was $35/day; the OBGYN was $250 for the entire 9 months including delivery, and the Anesthesiologist was $80, and all would take payments, sans interest, so we didn’t really need insurance, even considering the much lower costs and income at the time. If folks would only stop to think about it: How much money does the government make thats gonna pay for this? NUTHIN! But somehow, we’re suppose to save money? Where? How?

    . border – Close it and Guard it and Make sensible immigration law like we Used to have.

    . lawlessness in democrat hellholes – Ok, This is is tougher maybe. If people keep voting for it, heck with em. But are they? Or is it fraud to a large degree too. In that case, fix voting.

    . welfare slaves – replace welfare for able bodied people with job training, Turn off the spigot.

    . immigration – Take the laws back to when they were sensible.

    . education – Defund public education. Fund it locally and make locals responsible for its quality.

    . corrupt federal gov. – indict and jail people.

    Just takes commitment by the government. If the government wants it done, they just do it. It does not matter what ‘the people’ think. Just do it, what are they going to do. We don’t want open borders, what are We going to do. Nothing. Works both ways. What can AOW do about the 400k of her property they took just as she was about to sell it.

    The people don’t matter. Haven’t for a long time – if they ever did.

    This all is predicated on the government wanting to do it which they apparently don’t because their owners don’t want those things so in that sense, yea it will never happen, but it Could if we still had a country bound by laws.


  31. kidme37 says:

    Here’s a funny. Walked past a TV with Brett Bair on. Talking about how Durham is still working on an indictment. Some worm clinton lawyer that no one knows. What about all the big names we all know are guilty of multiple felonies related to the Trump hammering, the Russia nonsense, the spying on the campaign that dwarfs ‘watergate’ to the power of 100… Nothing will ever happen to anyone above the level of mailroom clerk.


  32. kidme37 says:

    My take on medical prices from what I can gather from everything I’ve heard boils down to 3 main things.
    Health Ins companies, Lawyers, and profiteering throughout the industry. One tiny example is Trump admin had the cost of insulin way down, the dems have it way back up. why…


  33. kidme37 says:

    Mal, Exactly,

    Z, costs have gone up but my point is there is no inflation gauge this side the Vega star system that would go to explaining it.

    So, 1968 Camaro was 2500. 2020 Camaro 30k. Lets be generous and give it a factor of 15 X.

    15 X 1800.000 = 27,000. No way no how would 45 days in hospital, the drugs, the 2 surgeries would only amount to 27k.

    I was going to do some internet searches and math but not needed based on 1st link I find…

    “If you stay overnight, costs soar. The average hospital stay runs $11,700 with Medicare ($13,600) and “other” insurance ($12,600) paying top dollar and the uninsured ($9,300) and Medicaid ($9,800) paying the least.”

    45X 11,700 = $526,500. Then add in all the extras, drugs, surgeries, gotta be very high 6 figures, low 7 figures.

    Lots to say but have to leave soon…for about 3 hours…

    Let me just say they are talking about the Durham report starting with, I think his name is Sussman?….but that when HE goes, he’ll talk, or others will start to fall. It’s not ending with Sussman.

    “turn off the spigot” “Take the laws back,”..etc. BRAVO!

    Now how do Republicans DO that without a nasty media calling them HEARTLESS for turning off the goodies? and How do we take laws back which some believe in?

    I’m 1000% with you, KID….I SO WISH…SO SO SO MUCH…that those things could happen as you describe. It’s a GREAT Dream Wish List. You and I say WHY NOT?

    Half of America (including the media) says YOU WICKED, UGLY, NASTY SELFISH GREED MONGERS.

    It will never happen of course, The ‘government’ has no interest in making it happen. This is why I say this place is done,

    Agree with ALL of them. I heard our local (LA) District Attorney Gascon in a press conference on the big crime sprees in LA. For the sake of others here, he’s terrible. He telegraphed crime won’t have consequences here. So he’s getting MORE of it of course. The weasel just blathered on about how he looks to science, not crime stats. Gawd, I thought I was listening to Fauci.

    Kid, my wife was in the hospital recently for 22 days (between two hospitals) and if I went over what Medicare pays for, I was told it would cost me $1,900 per day. So $35 vs $1,900. Why?

    Z, my question “how much money does the government make” was a rhetorical one! It doesn’t make money. Only spends money. Thats what I was alluding to.

    MAL.. Thanks, didn’t sound rhetorical….but I see you now 🙂

    BAYSIDER…tomorrow’s post will thrill you, too. 😦

    BAYSIDER..by the way, GASCON is in very big trouble; He is not at all popular except by the Newsom bunch………..

    Mal – my parents’ hospital bill for having me was $50. Another trick I learned from a local nurse who learned this from her hospital’s billing department is long holds in the ER. If they can ‘keep’ you there 5 hours they hit a billing max, even if you could be seen and on your way in 40 minutes.

    Well, that certainly figures, doesn’t it, Bay? In the end, it’s still not entirely about the patient but.the $$$$$$.
