The money from the "Give Joe the Bird" fundraiser is going to 4 very worthy charities, submitter.

I'm not sure I can agree with that. The BBHI makes me uncomfortable. While it is a current 501(c)3, a review of their 990 leaves me nonplussed. I have written them asking for more information.

That said we should have some method for better giving collectively as Farkers.

I'm in for a little bit for your friend subby.

Subby here. My apologies all, forgot I wouldn't be able to comment right away w/o TF.
Bathia I was shooting for a catchy title, but obviously I'm not witty or eloquent.

Thank you kindly! You're good people.

I'm grasping at straws here Farkers, the situation isn't pretty.

And yet GJTB is still maligned as worthless...even better is that a few idiots still think it has something to do with buying Biden a Trans-Am.

Subby, I'm in your court. I feel you. But you can't just run into Fark and simultaneously insult Farkers while asking for support.

/unless you don't actually have a friend in a bind and are trying to make a stupid point.

No insult intended, I apologize. I'm just trying to help a friend and thought I needed a catchy title. No disrespect intended. I read way more here than I comment or post... yes my friend Brei is hurting. I saw the new tab and browsed the posts, thought I had a good idea here. No way to edit titles is there?

Why, Obamacare pays for your food and rent? That's where the real bills start piling up. When I took care of my mother, I worked a lot less. The medical bills can be paid off over time, you miss your rent or mortgage payment too many months in a row, you're farked.

AbbeySomeone: If we had decent healthcare this wouldn't be an issue.


Seems the title suggests the mother already had a stroke, and the daughter is trying to take care of her and herself. I was in the same situation, but insurance doesn't cover living expenses. Maybe the mother worked and paid half of the bills, and now that she isn't working, the daughter has to cover them all now. Obamacare won't fix that.

That's pretty much how it is, except her Mom had her own place, and kids still living with her. Those kids were farmed out to other relatives after the stuff hit the fan financially.

Thank you all very much, you've done good things once again. I'm sorry I'm not better at expressing myself, but I love all you Farkers. Well, there are a few I just like, I guess. ;-)

I think you're confusing healthcare with health insurance.

Even if the PPACA were in full force today it does not cover things such as relatives who are providing home care.

Every medical problem is not a political soapbox.

No faith in allopathic medicine, well how would you treat an ischemic stroke, leeches? You know the PPACA does not cover homeopathy or witchdoctors at all.

I'm not trying to be mean, just realistic. If you're dismissing traditional western medicine and just getting over a long illness I think you're doing yourself a disservice. At least listen to what a physician has to say.

Healthcare is not a right, Access to healthcare is a right.

It should not be free, that unjustly enriches the recipients to the detriment of the providers. No more should seeing a doctor be free than riding the bus should be free. Everyone deserves payment for their labor.

You like the UDHR see §23(3) about being paid for your work.

I agree. In my area, there is a benefit dinner for a young mother with a rare form of agressive cancer. I dream of the day where we can finally do away with benefit dinners, bake sales, and tip jars to help someone's medical bills just because one does not have health insurance or adequate health insurance. This shiat should not have to happen in one of the most prosperous countries in the world for God's sakes!

I can agree that BASIC healthcare should be more affordable. A GP when you have strep throat, cuts and abrasions, etc.
Specialized healthcare will NEVER be free unless you absolutely drop the quality to that of like... Finland. And if you can change
the will of every person on earth to agree to pay for it (for reasons other than just giving the pouting childlike masses what they
want to shut them up) then I'll pay for the tickets to stockholm!!!

they had to abandon their ranking due to 'academic criticism regarding the methodology and validity of rankings'?
