    We had to pay $500 for my Mrs to have an MRI scan last month despite paying for full insurance.

    Health Insurance the Pharma industry and the actual hospital companies are immoral.
    As are US Universities.
    I had to pay $1000 for a CAT scan. ****ing ridiculous. And you don't find out until you get a bill in the mail weeks later. No-one says "go get this done it's going to be $X", they just send you. Same with x-rays at the dentist. I've been burned there too.

    Tip: Unless your life is in danger, NEVER call an ambulance. That's $1000 right there. Before you even get to the hospital. Take an Uber.

    Like most things...
    Why canít common sense or a happy medium just prevail?

    I donít mind paying for things, itís just having my pants pulled down and bent over that bothers me.

    Euphemism of course 😁

    She is, but I'd rather she pulled down her own pants and bent over though.

    They're now appealing to the public to help them identify the perpetrators.

    Loads of questions towards the policing at the start, but I don't see what else they could after. Arrest thousands of people? Lock them inside the building when there's the small matter of certifying the next president?

    They'll be able to track down as many as they want, as there are videos all over social media, and I would imagine 99.9% took their phone which will confirm they were there.

    And not to worry. Plenty of arrests have been made.

    when my boy was 9 months old he was taken ill when we were in Vegas. He had a high temperature and we gave him Calpol, but when he hadn't shown any sign of improvement we took him to the hospital. he started to perk up in the waiting room, but we thought we might as well get him checked out while we were there. We were taken into a room where a nurse took his temperature, told us it was high (we knew) and gave him a dose of calpol, which we had been doing anyway. We then got a bill for $2600 which they insisted I pay before leaving the hospital on threat of the police being called!

    Brave US policeman lures rioters away from the Senate chamber:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-55623752

    Can't help feeling that things are going to get really nasty as the Biden inauguration day approaches. As I said in an earlier post I think the ceremony should take place indoors at the White House and broadcast on TV, otherwise it is possible we could see another JFK-type assassination attempt by one of Trump's lunatic fringe. Not to say of course that that could happen down the line at some point anyway?

    Personally I think this would have been a significant risk but what happened at the Capitol has maybe dampened that slightly because the security around the inauguration will be off the scale now, I think I saw somewhere that they were having 15000 National Guard there. There'll be a huge risk to these politicians going forward though

    Re: US Protests

    In that same BBC article it says that one policeman who was on duty at the Capitol building during the riot committed suicide on the weekend. I wonder what that's all about?

    Re: US Protests

    One thing I was thinking as I watched the pictures last Wednesday was that it was a pissed up mob at work, but, having seen a few very short interviews after the event with some who were there, that didn't strike me as being the case. I listened to what they had to say and still felt the same sense of complete bewilderment as to why they feel like they do - some of them sounded pretty intelligent, but, in the short time they were talking they could not convey anything which made me begin to understand what they were driving at.

    Hi NYCB, I don't really understand the ins and outs of the Affordable Care Act but neither can I understand why the vast majority of Trump supporters disagree with it. I mean if you strip away all the big corporations the sort of rabble which stormed the Capitol last Wednesday look as though they haven't got a.pot to piss in! I'm obviously missing something important but why would they not want medical care to be more "affordable"? On the face of it they're cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
