OK, I've got it: The simple solution to the Medicare dilemma.
We simply need to adopt the age-old custom of abandoning the elderly in the wilderness when they become unable to care for themselves. Here in Wisconsin, I think it would work best in winter. You just put Gramma out in the woods with a blanket & a quart of brandy. 2 quarts if she's got a personal history that includes a high alcohol tolerance.
If your winters aren't cold enough to guarantee the result within a humane time frame, think this would also work pretty well in deserts. Maybe California families could use Death Valley for the purpose, and make the place really earn its name.
17. Yeah funny how when we were being exposed to those toxins we had experts telling us
there were no dangers to said exposers. Then the EPA came along and said hey you know that crap you been breathing and swallowing for the last 30 years is a health hazard and can lead to serious illnesses.
2. I am absolutely convinced at this point I will die alone, with no medical care, and in
so much pain that I can't even imagine it.
This sounds like hyperbole but I honestly wish I had my own secret stash of cyanide capsules so that I could take one of those instead of dying slowly of, say, cancer, and dealing with all the pain of that without medical care or pain management.
