What TrumpCare should really be.

I’ll be honest. I’m really upset the Republicans have been at this for 6/7 years and they don’t have a solid plan yet. Now it’s TrumpCare because Trump is President, but they didn’t have anything for years. What they came up with for TrumpCare v1.0.0 was complete horse dung and not even Trump can spin it nicely. It was and is bad. So how do we make it great?

TrumpCare 2.0.0

The goal of TrumpCare should be to increase health care competition, and to reduce waste. For example, how would your average Doctor make money? The easiest way would be over priced surgeries, but that’s harder to sell to most people. So what do Doctors do? They make you come in for way too many checkups. Each patient is at least worth $1,000/year. That’s crazy expensive. You go in for one checkup, they tell you to go to a lab for the actual blood work, then they have a follow up, then a 3-week follow up, then a 3-month follow up. What are in those follow ups that can’t be done over phone, text or email? Or a website for that matter. Do you even need to see a Doctor in this day-and-age? Before we go into the actual TrumpCare Law, let’s brainstorm on how this example could have been handled differently, and cost-effectively.

Example 1

  • Go in for a checkup of some kind
  • Doctor makes you do blood work
  • You come in again to review the blood work
  • They put you on something, so you have to come back in 3-weeks
  • 3-month follow up
  • ETC.

Solution 1

In this day-and-age, you shouldn’t have had to go into the actual Doctor’s office, unless you wanted to meet the actual Doctor. Photos online, etc. give you enough. The Doctor’s website should have had a valid intake form that asked all the questions. You would take photos of your body and send them over (depending on what you’re going in for). The thank you page for that form would have scheduled you for blood work. You would go in for the blood work. The web or mobile app would then explain to you what your problem is, with Doctor review of course. In this situation, the Doctor would have spent 15 minutes worth on you and you would have saved several co-pays, and the insurance would have saved $500 to $1,000. After the web app reviews you, and prescribes you something. You get text from your local pharmacist that says your medication is done, or Uber drops off your prescription. If any complications arise, you go to an Urgent care if it’s urgent, or you go to the web app or email your Doctor. You take standard photos, answer a standardized form. You can take your own blood pressure, temperature, etc. They sell that stuff at the stores you know, or maybe you get something mailed to you when you sign up for insurance? All possible solutions. There could also be clinics that are 24/7 that examine you, and use your Doctor’s web app to interface with the doctor. If there weren’t any complications, then you would have spent less than 30 mins of the Doctor’s time over a period of a year. How much would that have actually cost insurance? Not much.

But what about surgeries and other complications?

Then you go to the Doctor, or an optimized clinic for those things. Either way, you’re spending less time with the Doctor. The web app / technology is able to crowd source solutions. We can save lots of Healthcare dollars.

What should be in TrumpCare 2.0.0?

In no particular order, we’ll list the things that TrumpCare should provide:

  • Insurance can be bought from any State or Country, as long as they pay the federal tax to be certified. This tax could be yearly, and would help bring in revenue to lower costs for low-income Americans.
  • Allow Prescription drugs to be purchased from any State or Country or Business that is federally certified. Of course there would be a fee that businesses would have to pay to be certified yearly.
  • Force Doctors and Hospitals to give estimates and tell you what the cost really is for things, and tell you what is optional so you can say NO to nonsense treatment.
  • Deny insurance monopolies. When a company gets too big, split them up. Walmart should be at least 50 different companies, not one huge company.
  • Kick out any illegals that come into emergency rooms. Treat them first of course, then schedule a visit from Ice so the criminal illegal can be deported. We shouldn’t be paying for criminal aliens. This will dramatically lower healthcare costs. This one is kind of difficult to sell to people so it might not be on v2.0.0 but maybe v2.1.0.
  • Tax discounts and better payouts to Doctors that use Technology like in Example/Solution 1.
  • Yearly audit of hospitals to make sure they’re not making people stay in the hospital longer than they need to just so the hospital can make more money.
  • Nobody has to buy insurance if they do not want to.
  • Make each state have an emergency fund to help cover the uninsurable. That way we can allow pre-existing conditions to be covered by insurance. But not in the general pool, each State has to come up with a solution. The best solution can then be replicated to the other states.
  • Get rid of prescription drugs and let people buy the drugs as they need them. Why should we let someone sit in pain in a waiting room when they can simply go to the store and buy their pain meds? We can use technology to limit how many a person can buy, that way we curb abuse. This would save an amazing amount of money. Big pharm would still make money; in fact, they would get the cut that the cartels are getting right now. Think about the money that could be made, and how great the economy would be.
  • No more government subsidies on products, insurance, etc. The government should not be picking winners and losers. The only subsidy would be for the uninsurable to help compensate for the millions of dollars that may be spent on cancer patients. Of course with this plan, everyone will be insurable.
  • Increase support for DIY healthcare treatment. Certain things shouldn’t even be brought to the attention of the Doctor. We’ve gotten into this nonsense that if you take a little bump, you need to see a Doctor and get an MRI or X-rays or whatever. That is such a waste of money. Most of the time you’re fine. Just get tougher.
  • Tort reform. You shouldn’t be given a big million dollar payout just because you hired a good lawyer. Let’s figure this out. Limit payouts. Yeah, it stinks the Doctor messed up or someone died, but money doesn’t make you happy. We shouldn’t have people becoming millionaires based on mistakes. Of course, criminal charges should be levied on Doctors that are completely negligent.

You’ve just learned how to solve our Healthcare woes.

We’ve learned that competition, technology, and getting rid of regulations will save our healthcare system. Let’s grow a pair and fix the problem. Today.

Note, I haven’t proofed this. I woke up with a kick ass attitude and wrote this.

 

30 Dec 2016 Bill Cosby did not Rape ANYONE!

Did Bill Cosby really rape anyone?

I don’t doubt Bill Cosby gave people drugs. In the past, at the time, the morals were different. Did they really know what rape was or what the drugs could do? Probably not. Who knows what drugs they were doing back then. But guess what, she’s had so long to say something about Cosby. Years. He hasn’t been around for a while, and yet when he tries to make a comeback with only a handful of years left in his life, he gets slammed with this stuff?

Again, I don’t doubt he gave her pills. She probably was like “give me the pills daddy, give me the pills daddy” you know, she’s a drug addict and been in rehab for how many years? Back then, was date rape even considered rape? I don’t know. But guess what, in the 60s, 70s & 80s – Bill Cosby was still black, right, so wouldn’t it be really easy to have a black guy locked up? I mean, all I’ve heard is how racist white people used to be so I don’t think it would have been an issue to lock him up, had the situation actually been rape.

How many times do people party and take drugs? Lots right? People party, they do drugs. A side effect is blacking out. But does that mean the guy raped her? No because if you black out, but you’re still conscious, how is Bill supposed to know you’re not going to remember anything? This is back in the 60s, before we knew about “blacking out” and date rape.

I feel bad for Bill. He’s in the last days of his life.

Homeless People are the real bad guys & gals. Find out why.

You’re on your way to work, feeling great, right? You showered, you trimmed your beard, or whatever, and you brushed your teeth. Depending on how rushed you are, you ate enough to get you going. Then you hop in your car. Life is great, the sun is shining, you feel good, you feel refreshed. On your commute to work, you’re at a stop light, and then something happens…

A homeless person, or possible drug addict, or someone pretending to be poor, posts a sign that makes you cry. Maybe not externally, but inside, you feel like you were hit in the gut.

What is your responsibility here?

Sure, feed the poor, clothe the homeless, right? But is that really your role, your job? We all play our part into the community right, we have jobs, we buy things, we do what we’re supposed to do. All that combined produces the greatest nation on earth: USA. Isn’t that enough? I say it should be. You educated yourself, or your family helped. But your role is to live your life. And you did that.

People that make you feel bad, do you associate with them?

When a friend of yours, or family member, makes you feel bad. Does that get you upset? Do you purposely associate with people that make you feel bad? No. You avoid the people that make you feel bad because they’re bad people. When a homeless person makes you feel bad, doesn’t that make them a bad person?

I understand it’s sad to see someone so dirty and possibly hungry. So I can come up with some solutions to the homeless problem.

Solution to Homelessness

There is no easy answer, more so a ton of small solutions, that when combined, solve the homelessness problem. Here are solutions, comments & things not do to. Don’t be an enabler. So here they are:

  • Stop giving homeless people money – this only enables them. There are services for homeless and those in need. Plenty.
  • Don’t expect homeless people to be perfect. Don’t expect homeless people to be able to provide for themselves.
  • We must not think everyone should have a TV. No one “needs” a TV. No one “needs” a phone. Those are things we can have if we partake in the capitalistic system. A homeless person does not qualify (unless they have a job).
  • We are not all the same. I like the color blue, you may like the color red. But that doesn’t mean we have to like the color red or the color blue. You can choose. That’s why some people may not be concerned with their looks, or combing their hair, or showering. Homeless people can choose to be dirty, and that is okay.
  • No one really has to have a home. If someone wants to be homeless, they have every right to be homeless. Now if they’re destroying someone else’s property, they should be fined and/or punished for that. No exceptions just because they don’t have a home.

Conclusion

You have every right to ignore the homeless person asking for change. As a matter of fact, you have every right to tell that person to go away. They have no right to force you to do anything. Not only that, we are not all the same. If someone wants to be homeless, that’s their right. But we don’t have to help them.

27 Sep 2015 There is no water crisis | Florida SEO

Do we really have a water crisis?

This is more of a brainstorm / rant. Lots and lots of people are scared of their own shadow. We don’t have a water crisis, not in America. Globally, we just have to not live in deserts. 

I’m a firm believer that we do not have a water crisis. My reasoning is this. We can ship oil from all over the world. We can keep our cars, trucks, boats, air planes, flying saucers, etc. running all day long, and we don’t run out of oil. Why is that? Because we drill for more! We ship oil from areas where there is plenty of oil, to areas where this isn’t as much oil. We can do the same with water.

Why can’t we ship water all around the world?

I don’t understand why this would be a problem. Start building pipelines, put the water on water tankers. Move the water from raining areas to dry areas. Of course we’d have to find a way to keep the water from evaporating, but that’s not a big issue since people in Las Vegas never seem to run out.

Do we really have a water crisis? No of course not!

Is there a shortage of water?

No! It still rains plenty all around the world. I live in Florida, it rains almost every day. By the way, did you notice all that water in the ocean? Yeah, that’s water too! Oh but California is suffering a drought. Sort of a drought, but… California is suffering from failed leadership for the past 30 years. They’ve had every opportunity to upgrade their water infrastructure to accommodate the population growth, but they haven’t. They could have plenty desalination plants to process the ocean water. They’re just too stupid to implement it. So they complain about climate change. It’s sad. They have a bottled water company over there selling water to other states, yet, they have a water shortage, right? What a scam. They may not have a lot of water, but the problem is all their doing. They built that problem. Put me in charge, I’ll fix it.

What can we do to help the world?

I’ve mentioned water pipelines and desalination plants. Those 2 solutions would end our fear of running out of water. But Luke, there is another…

  • Dehumidifiers – we can take water from the air and turn it into, you know, water. Power them with solar and you’re good to go.
  • Homeowners to collect gray water – did you know when it rains, you can store that water? Yeah, put it in a big container and store a year’s worth of water. Done.
  • Keep your waste water – I’m not talking about your bathroom water, but your washer machine, dish washer, drain water from you AC; we can update housing to allow that water to be stored in containers. Yes we can. Run it through a sand / charcoal filter, put some bleach in there. Done. Or just use it on your flowers.

Some of the grosser options to keep the climate change religion at bay:

  • Put sand in a half gallon milk jug, and place it in the top of your toilet.
  • Don’t flush as much. Something about yellow and mellow.
  • Poor your half drank water bottles into a bigger bottle and drink, or let your dog drink it, or even use it for your lawn/flowers.
  • Poor old soda, old drinks, anything with liquid, through a sand/charcoal filter. Then use the water for the lawn or boil it so you can drink it.

How to save water? The non-gross way.

  • Don’t water your lawn as much. Use technology to control your watering.
  • Don’t water when it’s rained that day or the day before.
  • Don’t run your faucet as long. Use a dishwater (Oh but electricity. I don’t care).

What should be invented to save water?

I’m a firm believer in technology. I hope to one day make my own robots (not web, done that). What can we invent that will save use from this fake water crisis?

  • Better life straw. I have one, but they should make it better, faster, and for long-term everyday use.
  • Homes pre-installed with dehumidifiers to drinking water. Maybe something in/on the fridge, and then an easy way to change the filter.
  • More water reserves. Dig more holes, store more water. Put more money into it.

Conclusion

I’ve gotta go do something more important, like help somebody make money. I’m a Florida SEO Specialist (some could say expert) , I help small businesses with their SEO and all that. Like I said, I live in Florida. But anyway, the water problem isn’t really a problem. Climate change / Global warming is just a way for Democrats to launder money to their crony friends. It’s a scam, it’s fraud. They should all be locked up in jail with Bruce Jenner (he killed someone).

Clock Bomb Publicity Stunt

It’s like the world has gone completely mad. A kid brings what looks like the timer to a bomb to school and people are shocked he was in trouble for it? What? Of course the kid should have been disciplined. He brought a hoax bomb to school. It wasn’t for the science fair. It wasn’t a school project. It was because he wanted to scare people.

What makes this whole situation more annoying, Mr. Obama invites him over? What? This kid does not deserve to be a rewarded with Mr. Obama’s time. Sure, I’m not an Obama fan. But he is the President of the greatest country in the history of mankind. Okay, got that? A trouble maker kid should be punished, not rewarded.

My two cents or so.

Roddy Piper Dead

Roddy Piper wasn’t my favorite wrestler growing up. I always watched wrestling to see Hulk Hogan. But even though Roddy Piper wasn’t my favorite wrestler of all-time, it saddens me to hear that he died today. At this point, I do not know what was his cause of death. 61 isn’t young, but it also isn’t old enough to leave the earth.

In memory of Roddy Piper, I will kick ass and chew bubble gum this weekend.

America’s Bill of NON-Rights

We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.

ARTICLE I:

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II:

You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone – not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc, but the world is full of dummies, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III:

You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV:

You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V:

You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI:

You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you get the blue juice.

ARTICLE VII:

You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII:

You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX:

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over-abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X:

This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you came from, English is our language. Learn it!

Lastly:

ARTICLE XI:

You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it.
