As you may have noticed... well, the 3 or 4 of you who actually read this shit every day and didn't find this blog while googling cosplay or pictures of Meghan McCain, that I haven't been posting much this week. That's because I've been dealing with a medical emergency involving my mother in law. I don't want to go into details, but suffice to say this week has been stressful and both emotionally and physically draining and we're still far away from a light at the end of the tunnel.
There has been one positive about this week, though. My wife's mother is alive and so far doing better. I can say without any hyperbole at all that she is only alive today because my president passed health care reform. Health care reform has allowed her to get the life-saving treatment she needed and it is also going to allow her to have the insurance coverage necessary for her long road to recovery despite the pre-existing condition that almost cost her her life.
Were it not for so-called "Obamacare", I would be helping my wife make funeral arrangements right now instead of making time for hospital visits.
If that's socialism, then that's socialism I can absolutely live with just fine. Call me a socialist, I don't give a fuck, at least my wife doesn't have to bury her mother this week.
