Got me another email from the Prez today. I actually can call him that since we have become quite the email pals lately. Well actually we're not quite pals since he sends me his shit 'canned' emails but doesn't seem to want to reply to my questions or observations...

Don't understand it really, I mean just because I called him a bold face liar and said that he must not have been a very good lawyer since he seems so unfamiliar with the law... Anyway, our friendship doesn't really matter, what matter is the truth, right? Apparently not so much, since I don't seem to be getting through to him in our little email matching game, but admittedly he is a busy man. I guess you'll know if my blogging just disappears that the secret service dudes showed up at my office to cart me away (did you really think I'd give him MY home email address? Geez...)

Today his emails was to blast us 'nay-sayers' that are spreading misinformation and using scare tactics, and I quote,

"Over the next month there is going to be an avalanche of misinformation and scare tactics from those seeking to perpetuate the status quo. But we know the cost of doing nothing is too high. Health care costs will double over the next decade, millions more will become uninsured, and state and local governments will go bankrupt. "

Really, misinformation and scare tactics, you don't say? Dude, I think the majority of misinformation and scare tactics are coming from your camp. I'm just sayin...

So here is the outline of his agenda, to which I have added my comments in red (you know just based on my over 20 years in the insurance field as a licensed agent that must take 40 hours of CE every two years and all)...

THE SECURITY YOU GET from health insurance reform:

  • No Discrimination for Pre-Existing Conditions
    Insurance companies will be prohibited from refusing you coverage because of your medical history.
    You know this sounds pretty good, but let's consider that American Dude A has perfect health and takes care of himself and American Dude B drinks too much, smokes, is morbidly obese with high blood pressure and diabetes. If we accept everyone in to the same pool of risks, if you were American A would you think it was fair that American B was paying the same monthly premium but usurping all the benefits and their cost of care was probably 100/1 of your cost of care? It sounds great to American B, but really is this the only choice available?
  • No Exorbitant Out-of-Pocket Expenses, Deductibles or Co-Pays
    Insurance companies will have to abide by yearly caps on how much they can charge for out-of-pocket expenses.
    Okay this is my favorite of all of them. So what you are telling me Prez is that I am getting all of this quality care for FREE*? I won't have to meet my deductible, pay any out of pocket expenses or co-pays? Cool, but isn't that going to cost the country a whole bunch of money, because I think all these procedures cost money, but why do I care, your picking up the whole tab for free, right? Yearly caps on how much the insurance company can charge for out of pocket expenses. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the doctor and/or hospitals that are actually CHARGING these out of pocket expenses? And isn't it the insurance companies that actually PAY these charges? But again, you're picking up the tab so it's free to me, so what do I care?
  • No Cost-Sharing for Preventive Care
    Insurance companies must fully cover, without charge, regular checkups and tests that help you prevent illness, such as mammograms or eye and foot exams for diabetics.
    No Cost Sharing for Preventive Care! Wow this free thing gets better and better! Of course the majority of all the carriers that I market for already HAVE THESE BENEFITS in their policies, seems a little more like a scare tactic to me... Lucky for me my insurance company pays 100% of these benefits, but good thing I won't have to worry about that because once again, you are picking up the tab, thanks Prez!
  • No Dropping of Coverage for Seriously Ill
    Insurance companies will be prohibited from dropping or watering down insurance coverage for those who become seriously ill.
    Correct me if I'm wrong Prez, but in all the years I've been doing this I do believe that there are all ready LAWS that prohibit this practice and I'm pretty sure that there are LAWS and REGULATIONS that policies must comply with in order TO BE APPROVED BY THE INSURANCE DEPARTMENT OF EACH STATE! Seriously this is my biggest pet peeve with you Prez, I know you are a lawyer, surely you know the law, and I'm almost positive you would KNOW that it is against the LAW for any insurance company to drop anyone because they became seriously ill. Could almost put my life on the fact that there are only two reasons that an insurance company can drop your insurance coverage, 1) You don't pay your premiums and 2) they cancel every policy holder, no matter what their illnesses are, that is on that same type policy. Must totally admit, I have NEVER seen that happen in the past 20 years. Just another scare tactic, we insurance lobbyist are touting, huh Prez?
  • No Gender Discrimination
    Insurance companies will be prohibited from charging you more because of your gender.
    Dude, I'm actually going to give you this one and say I totally agree. Never have understood why because I am female that I have to pay more for my insurance coverage than a male the same age as me. So good one dude, way to go!
  • No Annual or Lifetime Caps on Coverage
    Insurance companies will be prevented from placing annual or lifetime caps on the coverage you receive.
    This is awesome! We will have no worries whatsoever because no matter what the insurance company AND the government health plan (or are we just going to regulate this to insurance companies?) will have to pay every single dime of every single procedure no matter what! A little skeptical here Prez because all this limitless and free health coverage is starting to add up to some big money. Where did you say we were going to get all this money to pay for all of this?
  • Extended Coverage for Young Adults
    Children would continue to be eligible for family coverage through the age of 26.
    How generous of you! Uh, hello, I'm sorry to inform you Prez, but most states already have passed a law very similar to this. You really might want to get some of the people on your team to research these laws, can't be MISINFORMING the American people now can we?
  • Guaranteed Insurance Renewal
    Insurance companies will be required to renew any policy as long as the policyholder pays their premium in full. Insurance companies
    won't be allowed to refuse renewal because someone became sick. Oh my, here we go again with this lawyer/law thingy, where did you say you went to law school again? I don't think I have ever seen a policy that didn't renew each year as long as you kept paying your premium! Oh but there is that sneaky little scare tactic about losing your insurance because you get sick, naughty, naughty Prez! Just to let you know, a little misconception here, I swear I won't tell anyone you haven't figured this out, but so sorry once again, by LAW there are only two reasons why a policy can be canceled and sickness ain't one of them. Dude, you're really striking out here. Might want to stop playing with that snoodle bar dog every night and start study that law stuff again...

If you are as worried as I am regarding this health reform bill that the Prez is trying to stuff down our throats, Please contract your local senator or congressman and tell then to STOP THIS FRICKIN MADNESS before it's too late!

*FREE - don't let this misinformation fool you, this will not be free! Not only will this cost you in premium dollars but it will cost you in tax dollars. It will also still have a deductible and co-insurance percentage that you will pay out of pocket...

Woo Hoo!

This is my 100th post on Blogger!

Woo Hoo!

Back in my Spaces days, it did not take me half as long to get to this point! But through the years (which BTW was a Kenny Rogers song way back when, actually sung at my wedding over twenty something years ago, which BTW still makes me want to vomit in my mouth, the song, not the wedding, geez people) I have started slacking on my blogging.

I don't know why exactly, I could lie and say it was because I am such an important and busy person, but that's probably not it. Best guess, I got lazy and tons of my blog buddies disappeared. WTF People? When you have no reason to go blog walking because nobody is blog writing... well then you start slacking. I'm just sayin...

But, here on blogger, it looks like we finally made it (okay, another cheesy song, but it's my theme song for Hubby and I, so go ahead and vomit...)!

100 entries - woo hoo - just trying to make it special!

Back in the day when I started blogging, it was easier to come up with something to write about because C1 and C2 were in college and full of stupid shit to share. They've gotten a little boring here lately I must admit. C3 is obviously entering a new phase in life by moving over to the 'big' high school and turning 16 in September which might give me some new material, but between you and me, I pray NOT. My best guess is that you are probably as sick of hearing about menopause as I am of suffering through it. My job is pretty stale at the moment besides the fact I don't know how long that will last if Obama sticks a fork in me. So I guess you might be stuck with just plain ol' boring me for 100 or so more entries?

I'll try to keep it interesting, though I can make any promises. I'll also try to get off my current step stool on Health Care Reform, for today...

I will leave you with a little something that C3 likes to torment hubby and I with, until we are are pulling our hair out, screaming and begging him to turn it off... Enjoy:

Now, ain't that special...

Just in case some of you received an email from our President today and just in case you plan on tuning in tonight to listen to his press conference, I just wanted to set the record straight on one simple point.

In his email he states, "It will limit your own out of pocket costs and prevent your insurance company from dropping your coverage if you get too sick."

BY LAW, insurance companies CAN NOT drop your coverage if you get too sick.  Sadly, he does not know this law nor have his advisors educated him on this law, which makes this health care reform bill even scarier to me.

I probably will end up in jail because I was so enraged that the leader of our country was either not aware of this law OR just decided to blatantly lie to scare the American public, that I sent an email to him... So just in case you don't hear from me again...

PS - If you would like a copy of the letter please let me know and I will be happy to email it to you in it's full glory, typo and all...

And today's lesson...

I believe that each and every day we should make an effort to learn one new thing. In one year's time that's 365 new things you will have learned, doesn't the sound of that just make you feel smarter?

As a mother of a teenage boy I am constantly learning new things - sometimes MORE than one per day...

When your teenager's buddies are visiting your home and sitting out on the deck, acting all cool and stuff, smelling like they bathed in their cologne, they can still fool you into thinking they are such cute kids.

When they come in and say "MommaKat, will you please cut up that watermelon because we are all starving and needing a snack?" It will touch your heart because you will think that all of these boys really do love me because they all call me "MommaKat". And they do, so it is nice.

So with a big ol' smile on your face you will slice up that watermelon that's big enough to feed 20 or more people and you will keep on slicing until you have made a huge mess and filled up that giagantic tupperware bowl until it is overflowing. You are pretty sure those boys won't be able to eat it all, but since you are always dieting, you think to yourself that you might want to enjoy some for lunch the next day. Then you proudly walk outside and hand them that big ol' bowl and you tell them you hope they enjoy it and you ask them to please bring the leftovers in.

This is WHEN you will learn your valuable lesson for the day.

DON'T hand over an entire bowl of watermelon slices to teenage boys. Yes they will bring in the leftovers and yes there will be plenty of it left for you to snack on, BUT... because teenage boys do not understand that less is best when it comes to cologne, and, let's be honest, who knows when the last time they washed their hands were? You will pick up that one piece of watermelon and pop it in your mouth and instead of enjoying the mouth-watering taste, you will be instantly gagging and spitting and trying not to vomit when your watermelon tastes like a big ol' soggy piece of men's cologne. Trust me.

The Great Debate

I'm not really wanting to get into 'The Great Debate' regarding the proposed Healthcare Reform Bill... HOWEVER, since it does totally effect (or is it affect, crap?) my livelyhood I will throw in my two cents worth. Well actually if it is passed, that might be all I have left to my name...

First and foremost, unlike most of the American public, including the Congress, Senate and most likely, President Obama, I read the friggin 1018 page proposed bill (again, my livelihood...). Quite honestly, it SCARES THE HELL out of me on many, many levels.

The first being (ref. pages 16-17) if this bill passes as written, it essentially will destroy the health insurance industry as a whole. Seriously. Because if you DO NOT have health insurance coverage IF this bill passes, you are shit out of luck and MUST take the government plan, regardless of the cost or coverage. If you DO have health insurance coverage, let's hope you like it and it's good coverage because IF the bill passes, you are STUCK with that insurance UNLESS you move over to the government plan, forever. IF you are brave enough to move to the government plan, once again you are STUCK with that plan, forever, and won't be able to move back to a private health insurance carrier. EVER.

Secondly, IF this bill is to pass, as written, it will essentially shut the entire health insurance industry down. HOW? Because the health insurance companies will no longer be able to solicit new health insurance policies AS OF THE DAY THE BILL PASSES. Thus, they will no longer need health insurance agents, marketing people, administrative people, etc. and eventually they will no longer be able to pay your claims because without bringing NEW BUSINESS in the door and only PAYING OUT CLAIMS they will go bankrupt and shut their doors, thus leaving 100's of 1000's of MORE people unemployed creating an even worse economy and more taxes for all the employed American's to pay for all of us welfare recipients.

Third, the government health plan, which by the way the President nor the members of the House or Senate have elected to be a part of (because they're special you know), will not only cost you more in premium dollars but will also have a minimum of $5,000 deductible for individuals and $10,000 for families. Do you have an extra $5k or $10K laying around to pony up BEFORE the plan pays for any healthcare? I don't.

Fourth, of the 47 million uninsured Americans today, the VAST majority of them choose NOT to pay for insurance and that is their right. Granted there are MANY that can't afford to pay for insurance and I am totally for giving them government assistance, ALL FOR IT. However, I am NOT in agreement that we should give all illegal aliens in this country FREE insurance and FREE healthcare and paying for it out of my own pocket. They don't pay taxes, why do I have to pay more taxes so that they get this free coverage?

Fifth, I do not want ANYONE, except me and my doctor, deciding HOW and WHAT the best course of treatment for me is. NOBODY. As a member of a FREE society, in a nation that FREEDOM is the basis of the constitution, I should have a right to choose not only my healthcare options and treatment but I should have the right to choose my own insurance plan, if I WANT an insurance plan.

And finally, the total cost of this healthcare bill alone, not including all the bailouts and bullshit that we are already bankrolling, just this healthcare reform alone, will not just be paid for by you and me, but it will set this country back so much that not only will my children be paying for it, not just my grandchildren, but my great grandchildren will be paying for it.

I am a Democrat, I voted for Obama, but I want this madness to end. Seriously.

We had a cold front people!

For those of you that have never experienced living in the bowels of hell, um okay Texas, you won't appreciate this very much. For those of you that DO, was the cold front NOT the best thing that has happened around here in weeks?

Of course our cold fronts aren't the same as other cold fronts, but the high today was only 93 degrees! You guys think that's hot don't you? When the AVERAGE high in my car the last couple of weeks has been 110 degrees, no lie here people, and yesterday hit an all time reading of 118, 93 degrees felt like pure heaven! Funny thing is that is has been so flippin hot that even while indoors you can't cool off because the air conditioners can't beat the heat either. But today, I got a 'chill' in the store! Really, honest to gosh truth! Ahhh...

This cold front couldn't have come at a better time since I was supposed to attend a combined class reunion tomorrow. Can you believe the moron's that planned this event planned an outdoor BBQ? Seriously, in the middle of summer, in TEXAS, I am supposed to show up in my full Diva only to die of heat stroke? Not dignified at all! Unfortunately (truthfully - THANK GAWD) I will now be unable to attend since the memorial service for our friend's daughter will be tomorrow evening and I feel this is much more important than drinking with people I don't even remember. Definitely would have to drink in abudance to endure it...

In other news, Betsy you were right on the money about yesterday's post, the child (C2 but who's placing blame?) was the child I was cranking and moaning about yesterday and YES he did also lose his very own CAR. Still can't fathom how someone does that...

Hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing and cool weekend. I personally will be enjoying this cold front in all it's glory!

Lost and Found

I may have mentioned before that I am a tidbit anal about organization. If you saw my office or even my closet you might have reason to disagree with me. Even though these two places may appear in complete disarray, I know where everything is or I can find it relatively quickly. The real point being is I have never LOST anything of importance.

I have never lost my driver's license, my social security card, wallet, credit card, keys, birth certificate or ANY other important document. My true anal personality doesn't even allow this to happen. I put everything important to me in the same place all the time.

When I pay for an item, I hold my wallet in my hand until my change or my credit card is put back into the wallet and put the wallet in my purse. When I come home from, well anywhere, I place my purse in the same spot every single time. When I unlock my car, my office or the front door of my home my keys go directly back into my purse. Thus, I have never lost my keys nor have I ever locked them in my car. As in N.E.V.E.R!

Now my children and my husband are a complete different story. They have lost all of these items, not once, not twice, but a countless number of times. They have had to get a new driver's license at least twice a year. They have had to cancel bank accounts and credit cards too many times to count. And they have paid the equivalent of the national debt of some small nations ANNUALLY in locksmith fees. WHY?

How hard is it really to keep up with this stuff? How hard is it to put things in the same spot in order to always know where it is? And WHY is it MY problem or MY fault when these things happen time and time again? Honestly on some days if my husband wasn't asking where something was that he couldn't find, we probably wouldn't even speak to each other. Is this all my fault? Am I the enabler because I either FIND the missing stuff or arrange for the new one to appear?

Sometimes I wish that they would lose me and never find me again...

I'm really not as mean as I sound...

Today was another long day just stretching this week into eternity! I had nothing on my calendar at work and was planning on playing catch-up and just chilling through the day... That didn't last long since I received a call on my way to the office and found out that a 10:00 meeting, 11:30 lunch AND a 1:30 meeting were scheduled for me - ugh!

Made it through the first meeting and the lunch unscathed, hurrying back to the office for the 1:30. We had a couple executives of an insurance company coming in to woo us into to selling their products. Pretty much a start up company which is something we don't do, we stay with top carriers. But as a favor to an old friend we agreed to meet with these dudes. One of them had just invested $7 million of his own money into this company and since distribution is key, I was thinking they really needed us more than we needed them...

1:30 rolls around, and goes, then 2:00, then 2:30 with no phone call and then they finally show up. Rudeness. So to make a point we let them sit in the conference room and stew a little bit longer.

When I entered the room, (always making a grand entrance ;)) I was taken back by the ugliest man that I have ever seen in my entire life! Seriously, I am not trying to be mean, but this man was so ugly that it was extremely hard to look at him. His clothes were wrinkled and too small, his hair was a cross between Don King and Art Garfunkel, and of course he was 2 feet shorter than me. Definitely did not look like a man that had an extra $7 million to throw into an insurance company.

It was very hard to contain myself and act in the professional manner that was expected of me without downright staring at him and at the same time being so repulsed that I couldn't even look at him. GAWD the things I have to do to earn a living... Thankfully they were behind schedule and had to leave at 3:30 to make a flight because I do not think I would have lasted much longer in that room.

So, do you think I am as mean as I sound?

Is it seriously only Tuesday? Arghh... feeling kind of random today...

There is always a good and an evil to being on good terms with the children...

Yeah MOM, for creating budget and helping me with my finances! BOO C1, for calling me 4 times per day with stupid questions that should not be asked by a business entrepreneur with a college degree...

Yeah MOM, for being the kind of Mom that listens when I want to talk. BOO C2, for telling me things that I really DO NOT want to know...

Yeah Mom, for being my personal chef, laundress, house keeper and chauffeur. BOO C3, for getting snippy when I say no, I do not want to stay up late AGAIN so that you can go watch the home run derby with your buddies and eat wings, on MY dime...

Having some serious muscle spasms in my back today, can NOT for the life of me figure out what I did. Pretty hard to pull muscles while sitting on your fat ass eating strawberry ice cream (new love) and watching the last 6 episodes of Gene Simmons, 5 episodes of Kendra and Nurse Jackie. GAWD I love my DVR.

Anyway, it hurts and I'm whining because nobody here wants to listen to me. Took Tylenol first thing this morning, didn't do zip. Took a handful of Advil around 10:00, didn't do squat. Took two Excedrin around 11:30, helped for about 30 minutes. You don't even know what I'd do for a Vicodin right about now...

Has this been the longest day in history, or is it just me?

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for my dear friends. I do believe in the power of prayer and know that this will help them.

Sad Day...

Today has been a sad and shocking day for some dear friends of ours. Their daughter, the same age of one of our own sons, passed away from an apparent heroin overdose. Unfortunately her parents were the ones that found her this morning. My heart bleeds for them and my sadness truly has no words. Please pray for them.

Hell must have started to freeze over

Spent a lovely afternoon with C1 at his gym helping him set up a personal budget. Good times! It made me feel uber important when he kept introducing me to all his members. One even said that we look alike - NOT! That was actually the first person ever in 26 years to have said that to me. So technically he's off the shit list, even wants to come over tomorrow for dinner...

And then he dropped a bombshell on me that I was not expecting. At. All. As we were discussing finances and I relayed to him that it wouldn't be a bad idea to look into a roommate - he stated that he and M have discussed cohabiting. Now that wasn't the bombshell that blew me away, didn't actually shock me even.

The big one was the 'L' word. He told me that he has told her that he loves her and then asked me why I thought he told her that? Um, because you really like her? To which he replied, "No, Mom I think I'm in love with her, wait, no, I know I'm in love with her." SCRREEEEEEEEEECCCCCHH!

Actually I am quite happy for him. And her. I like her, I really do. I hope this is something that works out.

But of course, his Momma is still his best girl, or so he says...

As the world turns...

Not much new in my life, still struggling day to day at work to complete the mysterious projects that were assigned to me in my absence. Thankfully, I haven't actually murdered anyone as of today though there is still one more day in this week...

Nothing exciting on the homefront either, well except if you count the fact that I am pretty close to being done with this mothering thing. The children keep rotating to the top of the shit list on an hourly basis and I am considering adoption. Anyone want to adopt me and take me away from my life?

In an effort to try and relax this evening I decided to grab a bottle of wine, a bowl of popcorn and work on my never ending picture repossession project. You might remember my little feud with that flucker picture website, you know the one that STOLE my pictures and made me pay ransom to get them back? For those of you with short memories, here's the story...

Anyhoo, been slowing working on this project and when I went back to it this evening I discovered that I had been copying THUMBNAILS of all of the pictures, not actual pictures. GAH! So I completely had to start over and I now have successfully copied about half of the almost 1300 photos to my laptop. Good times... Although tedious labor, it at least kept my mind off other things like work, laundry and doing anything else. Hopefully soon I will be able to transfer these photos to a USB drive thingy and then erase them from the hard drive to start the process over with the remaining pictures. Once that is done, I will be sending flickr a little letter telling them exactly what I think of them... Gotta get all my pictures first though.

Unrelated, has anyone read or seen the movie, My Sister's Keeper? I finished this book on vacation and I am DYING to talk to somebody about it but I know there are a few people that have NOT read the book or seen the movie and you can NOT talk about this story to anyone that wants to read it or see it. So humor me and let me know if you have had the pleasure of enjoying this story. I just gotta talk to someone about it! Just don't give away anything in your comments please!

Other than that, my bottle is empty as well as my bowl, so I guess I will go to sleep, but just for shits and giggles I will leave you with this most horrifying picture and you see if you can guess how long ago it was taken...

Vacation - what?

Next time I tell you guys that I am planning a superb, relaxing, well-deserved vacation, please thump me in the head and remind me that it is never a good idea for me to take a vacation because either hell will freeze over or some other major catastrophe will happen at work, thus causing major stress in my life, thus reversing all that relaxing that I had previously done, thus causing me to have an ulcer and possibly minor, or major, heart palpitations, and a horrible crick in my neck all due from the stress.

Also remind me that I deal with idiots on a daily, hour by slow hour, basis and that if I am to leave the office for any short moment of time, they become bigger idiots and seem to lose all capacity of remembering their very own name, let alone any other thing that I possibly could have trained them to do so it just is not worth the extra effort that I will have to go through to re-align the stars and the moon and everything other fricking thing to make the world right again.

Just remind me of all this, will ya?

When do I get to retire?

Back at work, have nothing to say, stressed out, can I retire soon?
