sure, why not?
I had my father get sick when I was 22. And I was poor, alright. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded and you know all these toxins get in your blood. And basically, my father died, whatever, 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor.
My mother got sick when I was rich. And my mother, you know… I don’t really want to get into it, but my mother was sicker than my father. And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, OK? I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, ‘Was I in the right place?’ Like, this was a hotel. Like it had a concierge, man.
People don’t… if the average person really knew the discrepancy in the health care system, there’d be riots in the streets, OK? They would burn this motherfucker down!”

Bringing this back, because some people don’t seem to understand that there is a discrepancy in the quality of care among poor, middle-class, and wealthy people, NO MATTER HOW DEBILITATING THEIR RESPECTIVE DISEASES MAY BE.
I literally just bounded out of bed, actually ran into my living room, and purchased this as fast as humanly possible. It is like Christmas right now!!!!!
1 hour left!!!!!!
Here’s a lesson about life, kid. It’s gonna knock you down.
5 day break starts in an hour and a half. I wished I had something fun planned before working 11 days in a row. blech
Can someone explain the ass slapping in sports?
I’ve never understood.
I don’t think anyone can explain it.
So I found out today that I had a library fine from Rider U in the amount of 455.00. I wish that was a typo. WTF? How about telling me by sending me a letter…I don’t know 13 years ago when I finished school!!!!!
Went to my cousin’s performance tonight for Delco Idol Jr. She was fantastic. Looked a lot more comfortable today than last week. Looking forward to next week to see how much more she improves. This contest however, seems like a popularity contest. Some of the kids that advanced were just not very good.
Did my random act of kindness for the day. I was at my cousin’s singing performance today and got there a little early. I was on the phone talking to my brother when I heard a crashing sound behind me. I turned around to find a woman on the ground pinned under her bike. So I picked the bike off the lady and moved her to the curb. She thought at first her leg was broken but fortunately she had a cut and bruises. We cleaned her up and she was on her way. The thanks she gave us made it worthwhile.
Not a Bruins fan but I gained a whole new respect for Seguin after this picture. Real or not.
