We don’t have a COVID crisis in America, we have a health issue. A hospital and insurance issue, people are a too big issue and a mental health issue. I could type for days but it’s simple. It’s absolutely ridiculous that I have no idea what my hospital or doctor charges before I go in. It’s absolutely ridiculous that a company in Illinois can’t buy an MRI machine and start a private MRI company and put up a facility next to a hospital. They can’t because Illinois won’t give them a license because the service is provided by the hospital and they won’t let you compete. Meanwhile, the hospital is charging you 5K when the private company would have charged you $500. Texas allows it and prices are 1/5 of the cost of Illinois. It’s a racket.
Hospitals are allowed to cheat their users and they do it because we have to have them. Without them, we die. And evidentially you can’t put a price on death. But they can put a price on keeping you alive. They just won’t do it until after they saved you. Then you have no choice but to pay for it.
We caused this issue ourselves. By suing doctors for everything. To the point, none of them could stay in private practice and had to join the big hospitals. Now we don’t have competition. Competition is what keeps prices public, down, and fair. Hospitals make sure laws and rules take out the competition and use the guise of public safety to do it. In the meantime, they make billions of dollars in profit. Then they write it off by giving free care to the people that can’t afford their ridiculous prices. Writing it off at 100% value. All a scam, all at our expense and all legal.
COVID is the least of our worries. Our medical system needs to be changed. We need more mental health care. More public discussion of weight and less acceptance of being overweight. Not shaming people but programs in the schools about the importance of a proper body weight. We need to have penalties of weight just like we do smoking. We need to have counselors to help people lose weight as part of insurance. In the long run the insurers will pay less out if people are thinner. More mental health counselors is a must. Mental is just as important as physical. It’s all a mess. I only hope that someone will make it a focus and that some catalyst will drive change. I don’t know what it is. I know this post won’t be it.
OK, Enough Rant. I have a new podcast out. I’ve always wanted to do it and although I will talk to other domain investors, I want to talk more about business, about life, and nondomain stuff. Domain stories are interesting to a couple of thousand people. I’ve learned a ton after two episodes. One, audio is everything. Bill’s audio was rough. Bad enough I almost scrapped the episode. But I saved it because Andrea, the producer was able to improve the sound a little. I will make sure the sound is good from now on. Two, editing is tough. I couldn’t do it without Andrea. I mean I wouldn’t do it without her. I just don’t have the time to edit and she has it done within days. The key is to give her good sound quality and edit times. She can do her magic but if she has to spend all her time fixing the shitty audio or a Zoom track with only one track I’ve made her job harder. Again, this is only going to get better. It’s something I plan on doing for years and will get better at my craft. I will have a few domain investors on in the next couple of episodes but it won’t be about domaining. It will be about the other things they do that are interesting.
