Never lose your birth certificate, social security card, passport, and old expired driver's license all at one time. Getting new vital documents in said situation is somewhat harder then space travel. You would think showing up at the DPS with three years of W2's (From four different companies), a school photo ID, a bank statement, a credit card statement, printouts of your federal loans, and 2 government issued licenses would be enough to verify an identity to get a new driver's license so you can get a loan you were counting on. Apparently the DPS people are to incompetent to be trusted to have more flexibility then reading from a list of pre-approved ID's.

AAAArrrrGGGGgggggg!

Just wait until people of the same flexibility and skill are vetting your health care decisions. I'll be faster and easier (and probably cheaper, too) to grow your own clone and harvest the body parts. ;)

It sounds like you've never dealt with an insurer.

Or PayPal.

It's completely unimaginable that a private corporation could screw something up.

I must be a socialist and a Muslim who wants to impose Sharia the world over for having the temerity to post this link (http://bloggingheads.tv/forum/announcement.php?f=9).

Yes, and RFR understands that the really important thing here is to use Star's misery to advance our own pet political theories.


but as an irrelevant aside, sorry Starwatcher - that sounds 100% awful. I really hope you get it cleared up in time to get your loan.

You mean when he's collecting Medicare?

When asked how much they trust various health care players "to put your interests above their own," respondents rank doctors (78 percent trust "a lot" or "some") and nurses (74 percent) at the top of the list.

Among those insured through Medicare, however, "the Medicare program" (68 percent) scores nearly as high. Among those with private insurance, "your health insurance company" earns much less trust (48 percent).

Let's be fair to Rob, whom I'm pretty certain was just making a sly joke. And, yeah, I've been there, trying to restore my documentation. It can be a real bitch

Thanks, Jeff. Geez. One little quip and look at the kurfuffle. Had you guys been Russians, you probably wouldn't have liked this bit of Soviet humor:

The farmers of a commune are gathered together by some officials for an announcement. The government spokesman steps up and announces that production is up, tractors are being manufactured in record quantities and the economy is wonderful. He then asks if there are any questions. A farmer named Perchek raises his hand. "Yes, Comrade, a question. If everything is so wonderful, why are we hungry, ill-housed and ill-clothed?

"An excellent question" comes the reply. I will ask it to my superiors and return to you with an answer.

Three months later, the farmers are once again gathered and the same type of news is announced. The spokesman again asks if there are questions.

"Yes," says one farmer. "Where is Perchek?"

48% of people trust their insurers to make decisions about their health? What are they smoking?

Pretty funny that you would re-word the the re-wording of the meaning behind the %. Not only is the Blumenthal piece dated it but it is full of contrived BS. Read it.

I wonder why this is:

More importantly, the higher scores for Medicare are based on perceptions of better access to care. More than two thirds (70 percent) of traditional Medicare enrollees say they "always" get access to needed care (appointments with specialists or other necessary tests and treatment), compared with 63 percent in Medicare managed care plans and only 51 percent of those with private insurance.

Here's a better one, although it doesn't have anything to do with Starwatcher's problem:

So a guy goes into a store and asks, "Can I buy a pair of shoes here?"
"Oh no," says the person behind the counter, "we're not the store that doesn't have shoes. That's the store across the street. We're the store that doesn't have pants."

Was it George Carlin...

Guy pulls into a convenience store with a sign over the door that says "Open 24 hours" but sees someone locking the door and says "I thought you were open 24 hours" to which the employee responds "Not it a row!!!"

Couldn't possibly be true, 'cause it doesn't fit the partisan narrative.

Attack the source,
back and forth,
the last post wins...
then post more nonsense, to bury your sins.
