medicaid and the coronavirus

Waiting for Medicaid, (Wait, why can’t we all have healthcare, again?)



This morning I was sitting in my car at 7:30 am, the doors don’t open until 8, but I wanted to get there before it got crazy. I’m on Medicaid, and I have been since they gave Medicaid to parents during Obama-era. As we look at a medical system built for profit instead of public health, I have to ask why we can’t all have healthcare?

We don’t live in an industrial era, we aren’t tied to our 9-5 jobs anymore. “Jobs” in the traditional sense are OVER. Huge pieces of our economy are about to learn that they don’t need buildings to carry on, people can work online from anywhere.

Many jobs won’t be coming back. Entire industries will morph into something else. Businesses are going to fail. Why do we have an economy built on businesses instead of an economy built to support people? Where is all that profit? All those bazillions of dollars in profit – where is that? What have they done with it? Why aren’t these mega-corps in a position to bail out the government? Are their business-models so short-sighted that they too are living paycheck to paycheck?

Let’s watch how the world’s medical systems respond to a public health crisis. Who fares better? The United States or Canada? Brittian? Is a private health system connected to our jobs really an efficient way to manage our collective health? No freakin’ way!

Why can’t everyone have healthcare, if nothing else the coronavirus shows us that we’re in this together.

In other words, the riskier stuff goes up and then down and moved to my patreon page.)

You = Citizen/Consumer



The Rise of Global Corporatism foreshadows the Fall of Citizens. When a Corporation is recognized as The People, a Person is reduced to just a Consumer. Also, it means that pretty much everyone who has any money or power in the world can tamper with U.S. Elections.

Elixonol CBD, is sweeping the nation because of its potent health benefits. I use the oils to reduce stress and to stop clenching my teeth at night; I use the rubs to loosen muscles and treat aches and pains; I use both to cure a migraine (I swear it works!); and check out the skincare products too. Some of my friends use it for arthritis, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, high blood pressure, acute pain and insomnia. Some people have been able to reduce or eliminate anti-anxiety meds and even anti-depressants. (I keep taking the anti-depressants and you should too unless you talk to your doctor.) CBD reduces stress and inflammation. Almost all disease is caused by stress and inflammation, so reducing those factors has to make you feel better, right? At least that's how I think of it. Give it a try. What if it helps?
