About Me

Well it just does not pay to complain because frankly, NO ONE CARES! I was raised in New York, and made the biggest mistake of my life in 1990 by moving to Indiana. Well, That's enough about me at this time.

Life sucks and then you die!

As I deal with the reality of a family member with a critical illness, I am finding out some interesting truths:

If you are wealthy, the system works for you.

If you are a leech on society and have never worked a day in your life, or you are an illegal alien, not only does the system work for you, but it bends over backwards to assist you.

If you are working poor or middle class, not only does the system not work, but it bends over backwards to make sure it does not work.

The smaller the business, the more willing they are to work with you.

The larger the business, the less they care.

There are people and organizations that have an incredible capacity to help and do good. Unfortunately they are few and far between, and usually the victims of the system themselves.

Life is a bowl of cherries, but most of us are feasting on the pits.

I am sorry for the bleak negative tone of this writing, but it has just been a very bad week. On the upside, the sun is out, temps may reach the upper teens, and my wife is still alive!

I actually found your blog looking up the phrase "life sucks and then you die". I agree with your view of American medical aid rights. I'm from CA and every illegal alien got free health care but we found that it was harder for us because we were ever so slightly above the poverty line, fourth generation CAs and white. Same went for financial aid and student grants. Have you posted any update to this?
