"Dick Grayson’s concept design for Damian’s Robin uniform."
From Batman Files.
DICK DESIGNED DAMIAN’S UNIFORM, GUYS. WITH NO DISCO COLLARS. OR FEATHERS.
So he isn’t totally helpless when it comes to fashion. :’D
#yeah but there’s no way damian wasn’t looking over his shoulder telling him EXACTLY how it should be #grayson those boots arent cool enough i need u to draw them at least 25% more cool
But I’d also like to think that Dick wasn’t just designing any Robin costume. He was specifically designing Damian’s. Damian, who he *knows* likes to be a shadow in the night. Who would want nothing but the most practical and versatile of footwear. Dicks other costume designs are flamboyant because they are for Dick. He’s thoughtful that way.
Tina … you wanna chat about how ObamaCare has become a nightmare here in California? Let’s chat. ‘Cos I have actual, real facts to support my opinion that the law is shit. Abject shit.
Yeah, let’s chat, Tina. I work in medical billing so I know from actual, real-life experience. I hear it from patients every single stinking day how they hate their coverage on ObamaCare because 1) they couldn’t keep their doctor, 2) it doesn’t pay for what their previous, comparable coverage did, & 3) it’s a crap ton more out of pocket than they were told it was going to be & exceeds what their previous, comparable coverage cost. I hear the anger & frustration in their voices when I speak to them on the phone to explain their bill because things aren’t what they expected based on the information on the Covered California website. I see it in their faces when they come in, wondering why they pay all this money each month & STILL get a bill, they’re frustrated they have to pay MORE for care than they did before on their previous (supposedly) comparative coverage. I hear the frustration in a co-worker’s voice when she has to call a long-time patient who has just switched to ObamaCare & tell them we can’t see them anymore because we don’t take that specific plan - when the ObamaCare website says specifically that we do!
See, the state of California FUBAR’d bigtime & listed physicians who never contracted with ObamaCare plans, & never had the intention of doing so, on the Covered California website the said “Oops! Our bad!” when patient had already signed up. Honestly, IMO, it was intentional because they realized very few physicians wanted to contract with government-run healthcare. Frankly, I don’t blame them; Medicare & Medicaid (MediCal in California) pay, on average, 30% less for any given service than it costs to render that service. So, as soon as a Medicare or Medical patient walks through the doors, that physician looses 30% right off the top. (Private insurance carriers were left to pick up the difference by paying significantly more to make things balance out.) Can you blame physicians for not trusting ObamaCare? I can’t. I see the numbers. I know that a doctor’s office can’t survive solely on what it would take in from government-run healthcare. So far, ObamaCare doesn’t look to be much different.
News flash: People are already defaulting on their ObamaCare premiums in droves! I get reports every 2 weeks showing the volume of patients - & it’s significant - who will now have to be self pay if we see them because they haven’t paid their premiums because the cost exceeded what they thought it was going to be. They’d rather pay the tax penalty. It’s cheaper! So people who tried to sign up for ObamaCare now are uninsured! Wow. Irony much?
These are not old people, Tina. They’re in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s … the people ObamaCare was, you know, designed for. The old people you so quaintly referring to are already on Medicare. If you knew your facts, you’d know that. These people are not stupid racists who cain’t work no interwebz. These are business owners, the self-employed, entrepreneurs … kinda like you, Tina, in a way. Kinda like you.
As for race … yeah, you’re wrong again. Whites are actually enrolling in Covered California in greater numbers than minorities, those who, we were told, were the very ones who needed such coverage the most. So whites, it turns out, aren’t a-skeert of that ol’ interwebz like you think they are, Tina. Oops!
So, you can spit out your cutesy, glib one-liners, preaching to the choir sitting in the seats in front of you … & I’ll keep my real-world facts. Thanks.
How’s that sound?
I feel really awful right now.
Sounds like you need a break more than anything else. Do you have any friends who don’t drain you? Any who might enjoy a visit that involves just sitting in the same room and reading or something? Ask BF if you can do that with him. It may at first seem like an odd request, but if he knows you well by this point, he may be able to see how much it could help you.
