Actually it’s true that the young are often accident prone in part because they think life is a video game with a reset button.
Here in Miami the uninsured are treated at the same hospital that some people travel from around the world to seek treatment at and some of the
world’s best physicians work at.
Jackson Memorial Hospital is the city/county Public Health Trust. That Trust involves a large sum of money charitably donated that the earnings of
help pay for medical care for the poor and the indigent. The University of Miami one of the nation’s premier medical schools also picks up a
significant portion of the Hospital’s operating budget as the rich and poor alike are treated to tours of medical students traipsing through their
rooms peering at their charts and nodding sagely and giving each other inquisitive looks while the teaching and attending physician cures or treats
what ails a person. Rich people of a philanthropic nature pay for many of the unpaid medical expenses of the poor. At least they did until Obama cut
that as a tax break to the rich. Another clear sign the government wants to muscle in on the territory. A portion is picked up by the County and a
portion picked up the state. If you have been shot up or cracked up or banged up you are going to have some of the finest doctors in the world piece
you back together again. If you have terminal cancer that might be cured by a cutting edge operation though you are going to die, you will die
comfortably and humanely but you will be allowed to die. It’s that simple you get what you pay for in this life.
That the public is somehow being penalized for the uninsured is a misnomer. Taxes have gone up to pay for the military industrial complex to the tune
of trillions of dollars a year but they have never been raised a dime to pay for the care of the sick. Jackson Memorial has never failed to meet its
payroll. It likewise has ever had a piece of leased or financed equipment repossessed. No one at Jackson Memorial has ever been laid off because
business is bad or the poor can’t afford to pay the bill.
This myth that good responsible people are being forced to pay for bad irresponsible people and therefore everyone should happily pay in order to
happily wear the good and responsible star on their forehead is a myth. A myth designed to separate fools from their money!
The reality is that less than 1% of the world’s population hordes over 90% of the world’s wealth. Very and I mean very few people are poor because
of laziness or lack of a desire to work or contribute to their own keep. In most cases they are poor because of the laziness and lack of desire to
create a better world full of more opportunities for everyone by the less than 1% that control 90% of the world’s wealth and resources.
Rather than those very rich less than 1% pay themselves for in essence denying people opportunities out of selfishness and greed, or to provide more
opportunities utilizing the resources that they do tie up and horde they convince the average person to not just accept that it’s their
responsibility but to convince other average people it’s their responsibility too to give up a percentage based portion of their income that if the
very rich and powerful 1% gave up that exact same portion their would be no poverty, no unemployment and no hunger in the world.
The rich literally convince the poor, that the other poor are their responsibility and not the rich’s responsibility.
The rich prefer to be responsible for nothing, even when their banks go in the red, it is the poor that are force by the government to put them in the
Even when their oil companies are raking in huge profits to the point it is causing the poor to default on their loans to their very same banks it is
the poor that they convince should make the economic sacrifice to make this faulty system work.
They have you brainwashed, brainwashed with words like good and responsible and in reality the people who most insist you and I be good and
responsible are anything but.
