i thought i would start a new thread! many of the other threads are being hijacked from the original theme! the discourse is very similar and IMHO needs to have civil dialog!
p.s. civil dialog, venting and especially extreme venting should be kept in the confines of a PM!!


i'll start with this topic; HEATH INSURANCE
i paid into our social security system all my working life, i always had heath insurance, as a youth under 21 provided for me by my parents. after 21 i provided for me, my spouse and my children! my parents ingrained the importance of having insurance in me, until i was able to retire and reap the benefits I PAID INTO all my working life!
from about age 55 there was a lot of nervousness on my part, that the monies i funded for me would NOT be there!! 
well i arrived and there was funding, i started with medicare at 65 and at 66 my minimal pension!
there was only ONE year in my entire life i did not have heath insurance at age 65! we were all told we could keep our private heath insurance! mine dropped me when i was about 62!!! i maintained a policy that would cover me in mexico! it would raise it's premiums every year, until i could not afford it! 
being in fairly good health i ran the risk to wait till my medicare arrived! one full year, to date i still have not used my medicare benefits A & B!! by the way i pay for B out of my social security pension!
I MAINTAINED HEATH INSURANCE ALL MY LIFE I PAID INTO THE SYSTEM ALL MY LIFE!
B.S. IF ANYONE IS ENTITLED TO MORE THAN ME AS A LEGAL OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT!!!!!!

next topic: 2nd amendment ownership of firearms


i have already posted my views on other threads!
i believe in the 2nd amendment!
that said in the definition of an amendment is to amend, then the current ineffective laws need to be amended!
many have posted on other threads they fill safer here in Mexico than in the USA, I AM ONE OF THEM!!!
if we expected to live in a civil world we have to lead by EXAMPLE!!

Frank. You sound as bored as myself! Maybe we need the topic of good books to read. I should figure out how to get e-books.

Frankie, I knew what you meant, and I knew you were not using the phrase,"we are all immigrants", as it is being used today, to excuse poor and illegal behavior.

And I, for one, appreciate Bart locking the other thread.  Really can’t stand political talk.
If I wanted to be exposed to politics, I would watch the news, which I don’t.


On this topic thread of ‘what happened’?  My answer is GREED and power struggle.


I haven’t lived in the USA for 10 years and I’m still too angry about the medical and insurance industries there to be able to speak calmly about them.


Good thing I have more enjoyable things to do in San Carlos, and good ebooks to read! 😎👍


OOPS! Sorry, Bart.  I was typing this when your above post came in.

that is why i started this thread, with good intentions!
* "insurance" most of the "expats" who live here in San Carlos are concerned about health care! the majority of us are senior citizens, with "medicare"! economically most of us can afford medical and dental expenses here out of pocket, because of it being inexpensive to do so! 
* "2nd amendment" the gun violence here is directly related to our current firearms laws!
* "immigration" recently because of border restrictions, it has affected travelers to and from San Carlos.
* "political affiliation" hind site probably unintentionally crossed the line!!! SORRY!!!


 IMHO, valuable dialogue can be maintained, if the "extreme" venting is made in PM's!
