Health insurance is now like a financial herpes.
Its worse than you ever thought it would be, the person that gave it to you lied about how bad it was, and you will never get rid of it.
Lucky us, we all made the same poor choice of who we took home from the dance.
Like your father said when you got the sex talk, make sure you wear a condom.
The reason for my disenchantment with comprehensive healthcare is that I started a new job and got my healthcare.
And a small get-by policy that I had 3 years ago has gotten worse and more than doubled in cost. ( Before you try to go down the “It’s better” road, don’t. I went over the premiums and coverage, its not.
Lots of people are in the same boat.
However, if you voice your concern about the financial prison rape that goes on, depending on what state you are in, your state senator will call you a liar.
And nobody seems to give a shit.
Oh well, this would not be the first time that the government has lied thru their teeth and screwed us in the process.
The above sentences have now placed me on a No-fly list and for the next few years, I will be under a sort of “House arrest” in the state of California, without the indignity of an ankle bracelet.
That being said, this pissy little rant was brought on by 2 different things.
The first is the healthcare discussion going on at the next table.
There are two early twenty somethings not really discussing, but rather whining incessantly about the fact that, despite the fact that they voted for and were in favor of the Affordable Blah Blah Blah they are now shocked that they both have to buy it, and it is not cheaper as promised.
I remember the early twenties, its a period marked by its hapless stupidity.
Regardless of what party you belong to, we can all agree that we’re just fucked in this together.
After 300+ words of soapbox type pontificating, lets move on to something more fun.
There are two hot ladies making out at one of the tables.
I know, I know, its a juvenile thing, objectifies women, but its still cool.
Besides, if you are going to make out in a Starbucks on the cheap cushions of the bench seat, then you obviously, on some level, want people to watch.
And some of us will. Shamelessly.
There is a basic male fantasy that most men have, even the guys who claim they don’t.
Its the whole sexy lesbians thing. Its not a mature thing, its dumb and bigoted, and anyone with a set of testicles is drawn to it like a moth to a bug light.
It may make you a dick and politically incorrect, but it doesn’t make you a bad person.
I once dated a girl who liked to make out in public. She was into the passion, but she needed the people around her involved to be a part of it.
So, looked at that way, they are sharing it all with us.
Its always nice to be included.
