Musings at midnight

How did it all get so crazy? My friend is in Europe, visiting relatives, right now - if she gets sick, she will be provided health care by the (SOCIALIST!) health care system. But when she gets home - since she has no health insurance - she will not be provided with health care. And she is an American citizen who has worked all her life. To ask that she - and I, who also have no health insurance - be covered for health care is to be assaulted by many of our country(wo)men and elected officials (who have government-provided (socialist?) health care insurance). And we are each in our 60's, so that we are having more than a lot of trouble getting employment. Maybe we are just in the way, since America is all about progress and productivity and youth.
