David on the late night wars: I watch Adult Swim at night, I don’t care.
Health care is the topic everyone seems to be salivating over, but form what I hear
its been so “dumbed “ down from its original glory that it hardly a huge improvement
anyways. So far, from the election of the republican senator who’s against the
proposition, it seems that this is not going to pass anyways. I was all for the idea of
government controlled health care; it only seems right. We claim to be the greatest nation
in the world; I think this would be something that would support that. Instead we let
greed take over and let the insurance companies do what they do. I mean come on! These
people are vultures-the way they screw people out of treatment and other such benefits
that they pay for- as soon as something serious comes up is nothing more than despicable.
The general apathy the companies show toward paying customers is less than laughable
even from a business stand point. Any other type of business that operated in this fashion
would have been shut down for fraud, or would have gone out of business as the
customers found a new solution. Cancer patients being turned down because a minor
discretion in their medical history from years past that was no big deal until the company
had to shell out the money for something as expensive as chemo! They never thought
anything of a rash or hay fever before cancer popped up, why should it matter after the
fact? A more personal experience: my brother-in-law is taking Nexium for an acid
condition. The company sending his meds (a part of our insurance) refused to fill his
prescription because the doctor told him to move up to 2 pills a day. They flat out refused
and said he didn’t need it. Are they doctors? No. they are not doctors, they’re just fat cats
sitting around lining their pockets. Is the situation as dire? No. But it’s basically the same.
His mother pays a whole lot more for insurance to cover him and pays it every paycheck
regardless if she forgets, because she’s a teacher and it comes out of the paycheck before
she even gets it. In the end they had to back down, get a new, generic prescription and try
to get that filled instead. Only, instead of getting the prescription he just asked for from
the doctor they end up sending him the Nexium.
If the government won’t go the extra mile with health care then they at least need
to manage the prices and insurance companies. They have driven the prices up for
everything from service to the actual medicine needed for some people to live. Whenever
someone in my family needs medicine they can’t afford they ask an uncle of mine run
over to Mexico and grab whatever they need from a pharmacy there because as it is so
much cheaper. So many times my mother in law has prescription antibiotics lying around
just in case someone gets sick too far away from their next payday. That way we can just
start to try getting better. Which in and of itself causes a whole new problem which
would be avoided if we could just get into the doctor to find out we’re sick because of a
virus, not a bacteria, which the antibiotics will do nothing for. (end rant there)

RAFEL NADAL SALAS- L’INDIÀ D’ESPORLES III. Alçament militar i Guerra Civil, 1936-39. L’arròs va a “grumallons” A mesura que arribàvem als darrers dies de la Segona República, l’ambient polític s’enterbolia. La Falange, que no havia aconseguit cap diputat a les darreres eleccions a les quaranta províncies on s’havia presentat, va augmentar la seva pressió social.
