POETIC EXTINCTION...desperate , grasping
barely holding....unexplained convulsions of logic
....Lashing out fierce screams of blame...........
........thinking of survival, Wailing Flailing.....
lying dealing death to survive
Fear, oh yes FEAR
Eating one's own, you know that kind of Fear
......The fear of nightmares.....
Camouflage it....hide behind it....meta morph it
puffing plumage...raising hackles... loudly barking
..changing colors...altering strategies ..
smokescreens of stench
hungry predators...following the trail...searching
weakened hiding running Scared
hoping hoping predators circling
focused dedicated hungry
backed into a corner
Cowering Sniveling Crying
THE EXTINCTION OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY:
by Proud Patriot
Cheer up Women ... We outnumber them w/o allies, and we have a lot of allies
We just have to show up and vote for Democracy over an athoritarian, theocratic, fascist, racist, violent, mob of misinformed rubes who blame the poor and victimised rather than billionaires who PAY Zero taxes and have tripled their income while price gouging the rest of us ..
NO PROBLEM !! WE GOT THIS !!
George Washington's Thanksgiving proclamation of 1789..
Our County's very first thanksgiving
A celebration of our Brand new Constitution
Wouldn't it be nice were we to celebrate this every year and not some lie
about pilgrims and native people ?
Happy Democracy Day!
... way to go Dad
I just had my third heart attack.
Let me tell you about my previous two.
The first was 16 years ago in 2012. After wasting 15-20 minutes with an ER admitting clerk demanding my insurance information before I was allowed access to care, a triage nurse hustled me backstage. I was diagnosed with a minor MI stopped by doses of nitroglycerin.
The following day the artery that had closed up was stented. The day after that I was kicked loose to the street. The retail cost for my two day stay in the hospital and the procedure was around $250,000. My insurance negotiated that down to $22,000, co-pay was $2,200 plus $300 per month for prescription drugs over the next year.
During the procedure, they found that my major heart artery (LAD, the widow maker) was over 70% closed. Because of policy decisions designed to maximize corporate profits they did NOT open it up and place a second stent. I was not allowed to weigh in on that decision and instead was left to carry the information about a time bomb in my heart for the next 6 years.
The LAD finally completely closed a little after 7pm on June 9, 2018. The EMTs showed up at my rural farm and did a fine job delivering me to the closest ER within the critical first 2 hours.
But since no ERs in our area are equipped to deal with serious cardiac problems and thanks to being out of network at that ER (only in America), I was warehoused for additional hours awaiting permission from my insurance company for further transport to care. After another ambulance ride to the airport and a helicopter ride to the hospital lawn, I finally signed a release form about 12 hours after the onset of the attack and the artery was opened and stented. The following day I was overdosed with blood pressure meds and nearly expired again. This all resulted in a miserable, sleep deprived 6 day stay in the hospital before I could go home and begin healing. Over the next few months, I received bills for co-pays and uncovered charges that exceeded $6,000 and my heart function was measured at 50% of normal thanks to 12 hours of transport killing heart muscle.
In 2021, things began to change. (snip)
