Be reassured that I am still with you and still working on Mythus. I’m learning how to use Scrivener and when the manuscript is ready I’ll be converting it to Libre Office in order to format it so I can put it up—bit by bit—on the blog, then get it “printed” as a PDF.
In other news, I remain as hostile to medical insurance as I’ve ever been. But how to address it.
My recommendation is, raise wages. Start paying people what they’re worth and stop this ungodly fussing and fretting over how much money you have salted away. Invest in your workers, not your portfolio.
On Oct. 5 I have a dentist appointment. Oct. 10 I see my doctor, on Oct 14 I see my shrink. Not every dentist, doctor, or shrink takes Medicaid. Hell, there are dentists, doctors, and shrinks that won’t take private insurance because insurance costs them too much. Too much paper work and too much time tied up in waiting for some cleric in an office somewhere to make a medical judgement.
That’s what they’re doing, practicing medicine without a license, when they haven’t any real part in the matter.
So raise pay and outlaw comprehensive medical insurance. Reserve the insurance to catastrophic care, which would include continual care. You pay cash the medico only needs your approval, and he can get that with you in his office. Keep the matter to the interested party, not some third party concerned only with his company’s profits.
Though private and public bureaucrats would have to find real work, but I suspect they will.
