So shut the fuck up moron. The adults are talking to each other.

So you didn't make a single appointment?

You are just another aging asshole who deserves whatever anger related ulcer you got. I hope it gets worse until you can't pay for it any longer and finally get the point.

It's not surprising you are so bitter about this. You got screwed into a bunch of bills so you think everyone should have to do the same thing. Unless your insurance paid for it all - in which case you don't have any fucking ground to stand on.

Even if you have insurance through your company - which many people do not - you would be getting paid more since your company wouldn't have to pay as much for your medical. Durrrrrrrr You'd realize simple things like this if you weren't on meds for asshole pain after your colonoscopy. Which also explains your attitude.

Even if you happen to have good health care coverage (I do, and I'm lucky for it), I don't understand the defense of our system unless you're one of the few people directly profiting from it in the health care industry. Our system is just outrageously fucked up. Everything costs more here, by huge amounts usually. Large fractions of our population don't have insurance. People live in terror of getting laid off, since they lose their coverage. Retirement introduces either an enormous new cost of buying private insurance, or figuring out how to navigate Medicare. And our costs are going up faster than anywhere else in the world, and were well before Obamacare was even thought up.

Unless you have a purely axiomatic "fuck anyone who wants change, my setup is FINE" mindset (and many here do, apparently), shouldn't it be obvious that something needs to change? What is the defense of this shitty arrangement beyond "USA USA USA!"

I switched from a fee-for-service insurance over to a managed care system. It's shockingly cheap (and I know how much my employer pays, I'm not just getting a good deal) and the care is quite good. I don't have total control over what drugs I get, I'm limited in what doctors I can see, but it's all incredibly well integrated and inexpensive. They do a good job too, never have to wait longer than a couple days for an appointment and they have good docs and techs. It works best in more dense areas, but it's something we should be moving towards in general. "HMO" has turned into a dirty word, I assume because of something about how those systems operated in the 1980s, but our system has not exactly developed in positive directions since then.

He damn near had to sell his commemorative Reagan plates to pay for his colonoscopy. It would be unfair if other people got healthcare for less. It's like something going on sale right after you bought it.

I can't imagine any other reason his grouchy ass wouldn't want to save some money. I know he isn't rich, and hasn't got all that many years left to hit the lotto...

Sounds like you have transference issues. Is it because you fail at reading?

As far as curing cancer on your own. My grandfather did just that. Got skin cancer and just kept ripping it off till it went away. It did come back 40 years later though.

And actually not doing preventive care on useless people saves money. Because preventive care just postpones the massive outlay of cash till old age sets in and the constant medical intervention starts and we cant take bubba off of his 20 meds and hospice care because he is entitled to them under obamacare. Unless bubba's family passes a means test and has to pay for it themselves of course. It's only fair that people that earned a living spend all their money before they qualify for Hope and Change entitlements. They have already used up more than their fair share of resources as schmuck would say.

Sorry about pointing out those flaws in your argument. But it's better in the long run to not let you keep believing that santa is real.

I still see it every day. An older man / women (definitely past the age of 25, 30, 40, etc...) that come in to the Kroger / Grocery store, and come up to the counter with 2x 18 packs of Bud Light. And since it's the express lane, they often come out with a carton of ciggs too depending on who they are.

There is absolutely ZERO fucking excuse for coming to a grocery store and walking out with only beer. The only POSSIBLE excuse is if you are in college. Period. If you are doing this, you are a failure at life, and I shouldn't have to support you. I hope you die in a fire because you are a waste to society.

What? You are in CA so you must know that you can walk-in to LabCorp located almost everywhere without an appointment. What sucks here is that you need a doctor's order for blood work.
