Yet another family setback, a tragedy as my 2nd Cousin, age 7, drowns in a apartment swimming pool. Acts of God, that could have happened anywhere. I am reeling from this event, and my poor Uncle Dan, whose wife recently died from cancer.. has such a load on his shoulders.
I am looking now for a dentist, and considering going to Mexico or another country, even Thailand because of the costs. Even with a plane ticket factored in, it might be much cheaper to go abroad to have it done.
That is the thing about the USA.. the health care system, and has been a problem for years and years. Obama’s plan might not be perfect, but it is a step forward, even a halting step.
The USA’s policiticans freak me out. The deficit is caused by the interest on enormous borrowing, and the cost of the war. A submachine gun (a grease gun) cost $15 in World War II, now they cost $300. That isn’t so bad I guess, but there is the cost of fuel and other exotic weapons. It would seem like resolving things peaceably would be much cheaper.
For whatever the reason, I wish health care was cheaper. It seems the biggest issue with the people I know, the people in my life.
Recent months have been frightening..with accident, and major illness seen in my family, and the people I know and deal with.
