I know HIMYM has a few bad lines, but this is the least heteronormative thing I’ve ever heard a dad say to their child, and it’s a line in a TV show.
Bi visibility, FTW!
And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crocks is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
This is absolutely ridiculous.
I live in New Zealand. My mum had a heart attack when I was 13, she was in hospital for at least 3 months and our government pays for most of our bills so I think my parents only had to pay around about $500 - 1k. With the option to pay it over a period of time.
Like????? Does the America government even give the slightest fuck about the people that live in their country???? Honestly.
No. They don’t.
I’m a waste of breath, of space, of time.
I do not know how to support someone going through loss without them sitting shiva. I literally have no idea what to do. How does this work? Do I bring them food? Do I go to them? Do I stay away?

- “was the galaxy print necessary”
- “why is this so cheap”

THIS IS IMPORTANT.

So of course I ordered the internet package today. It was fucking 60$ a month even though the advertised price was 45$. Fuck, sorry roomies. Didn’t know they were gonna charge 15$ a month for a fucking router. Can I go back to being a little kid now?
You know, I’m really proud to be a fan of a show that lists transphobia as an absolute NO under their submission criteria.
4. We do not censor our weather artists, so your song may have explicit language or content if you’d like. However if your song has language that is misogynist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. (any hate speech at all), it’s definitely not going to be chosen.
Worry less about the person you once were, or the person you dream you someday will be. Worry about the person you are now -or don’t even worry. Just be that that person. Be the best version of that person you can be.
