Abe Vigoda's Ghost: How about the other people that lost limbs?



gyazo.comQ&D

The funds should be split equally between anyone injured in Boston.  ...And Iraq.

We could just fund raise for everyone to have health care.  You know, through taxes?


But that's socialism. And communism. And WARBLEGARBLE.

trappedspirit: God-is-a-Taco: Are there any websites like this that DON'T skim money off for their own profit?
There's so many of them, but of course they all take a share of the donations.

Is there a land where hardware, bandwidth, and payroll are free?


Someone should use one of these fundraising sites to raise the funds to start one that doesn't take money off the top.

Like the kids in Iraq?

America might forget them, but not the Doctors Without Borders.


Can't they get over it and just go to Barnes & Noble?

Having said that, I wish people would stop with this 'He's a True American HeroTM' shiat.    It's so farking overused that it means nothing anymore.  Everyone's a farking hero.  I heard someone calling the race officials heroes because there wasn't more loss of life...that doesnt even make any farking sense.  Stuff your farking 3rd grade platitudes, your flag waving and your farking tear-soaked tissues up your ass.  Grow the fark up.

I know others will give you shiat for saying it, but I'm with you on this. If you lose your legs trying to save someone else, that's heroic. Losing them by being the unlucky sap in the wrong place at the wrong time is not. The heroism awards go to those who step in to help, and you don't need to be an American to be a hero (Carlos Arredondo -- cowboy hat man -- was born in Costa Rica, according to Wikipedia).


Not only was he the unlucky sap, but he did absolutely nothing for 2.5 minutes after the bomber put the bomb bag at his feet.  He allegedly looked the bomber square in the eye, watched him drop the bag at his feet, and then watched him leave.  He was the person that ID'd the bomber for the FBI.  If he had opened the bag and realized it was a bomb, and then covered it with his body.... then he would be a hero.

Hobodeluxe: berylman: I really hate to ask/wonder what insurance he had and if they would cover this and if all this is really necessary?  Probably is at least partly so just an estimate.

pretty sure his insurance isn't going to cover 100% of his lost wages from being handicapped the rest of his life.


But he gets to park in those blue-labelled preminum spots at the store. Forever!

/what I find really sad about the story
//'Murica!


he was voluntarily uninsured. he lives in a place called Massachusetts where if you can not afford insurance it is provided for you.
he's simply an idiot who refused to pay a few bucks a day to insure against an unlikely but catastrophic event.
he could be the poster boy for reckless disregard for others.
the system didn't fail him, he failed the community.

Just what I want, health care brought to me by the same people who gave us social security, unnecessary wars, lax border security, the war on drugs, etc.

you'd rather get it from those who stand to make a buck by denying you coverage


I'd prefer health care without government OR insurance companies. If I have to choose, I'll go with the insurance company, it's easier to change providers.

I'm going to pay forward the TF someone gave me the other night for this, but I have an honest question - would putting it in the name of my business make me look like a tool? I wouldn't be doing it for the tax write off or anything, it's more for accounting purposes and to show that a business (owner) cares...
