"Uninsured More Likely to Die"

??????

Everyone is equally likely to die. Everyone will die. I will die, you will die, your kids will die. The uninsured are more likely to die young, early, untimely, whatever you want to say. But sooner or later, fulfilled or not, we're all going to die.

I'm on hold w/state unemployment. I've been trying to notify them that I went back to work for nearly 2 months and get my closeout check, but they just keep my claim open.

I am in Flemington. My keys, however, are in Wanaque.

Former Czar: a surge in use will lead to a surge in violence.
Former Czar: California has seen a surge in use.
Economics Prof: but where's the surge in violence? Oh wait, there isn't one. Because you're wrong.

So, I'm hacking away for a few seconds while farting around on the internet, and I'm wondering why, all of a sudden, I'm coughing so much worse. Again. And then it hits me...It's 9 PM, and I haven't used my inhaler since 2:30.

Frickin' genius, I am.

This...this is outrageous. Limbaugh is evil and I hope he loses his audience.

I hate that people like this live in the United States. They should be forced to move to a country with the sort of government they espouse, so they can learn of their failures to be human.

Well, I did NOT get to file today like I was supposed to. The phone message went from "we're busy" to "we're closed." I will call very early tomorrow morning. And then I will just go to this Newark office. Because apparently the state of New Jersey wants to punish me for admitting to seeking further education on my unemployment filing by going through some extra hoops. Maybe, maybe this office in Newark will actually HELP me get financial aid for grad school. But I doubt it. They had better be able to get me my benefits even though my claim was supposed to be made TODAY.

So, I have to talk to a rep in an office to file for my unemployment. The best times to call are between 430 and 6 PM. If they're too busy to take your call, you are automatically disconnected.

I've been hung up on every 5 minutes since 415.

I emailed Assemblywoman Evans in the hope that there is something that can be done about this.

Her address is aswevans AT njleg DOT org.

It's probably too little, too late, but at least now I can say I tried to do something.

It's not that I think the idea is bad, but the execution is going to destroy businesses and make budgeting harder for families that already have it hard enough.

1-Get pulled into roadside inspection station.
2-Fail for my ABS idiot light. Part will be at mechanic on Tuesday.
3-Get ticket for expired inspection. (expired 12/08)
4-Get laid off. (neither enough work nor money in the budget)

But hey, new userpic.
