Unjust Health System Makes me MAD!
Hello My friends! I was hoping you would lend me your ear because I have something I would really like to get off my chest.My oldest daughter was due for booster shots.I made her an appointment with our family physician.We have Blue Cross Blue shield Insurance on our girls.We dropped mine a couple of months ago ,we couldn't afford to keep it up any longer.They tried to double our rates on me from 200.00 to 400.00 a month.I haven't had any claims or anything so I was pretty upset.Well long story short we had no choice but to cancel it all together,my husbands and my sales are down it has already been a struggle to stay a float.Anyways I took my daughter in yesterday thinking 30.00 co-payment and she would be good to go,but of course it wasn't so easy.They had me call and see if the shots would be covered.This is the part where I got really upset.If you have insurance the shots were about $180.00 each plus doctors office charge over $500.00 for the two shots.Yes that's right $500.00.I was shocked, angry and confused.We pay over $200.00 a month for insurance on them for over ten years we have never filed a claim.The insurance said they would only pay 300.00.It turns out if you don't have insurance they can do a state Shots across Texas for $14.00 a shot plus Dr's visit. So of course I filled out the appropriate paperwork and after three hours at the doctors office Angela was given her shots.I learned that you are better off telling them you don't have insurance you get off a lot cheaper.I think this is shameful,disgusting down right WRONG. I am not sure how our society has gotten so messed up.I am not sure that there is anything I can do about it, but When it comes time to vote I will definitely pay attention to these issues.Mean while I will pray that our unjust health system will get an overhaul it well deserves,and I do not get sick worrying about it because I can't afford to go to the doctor.Thanks for lending your ear.I do feel a little better now.I would love to no how you feel about this.

Women Over Fourty 8)
This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!
