If "the system" can't milk me for any more wealth they won't need to put me in prison because I'll starve to death.

Hence me going to the Mayo Clinic.

No. It's not the same. But it is still genocide. As the link shows, it fits that definition. And the person is telling me that I shouldn't do something to stop that genocide because there's another genocide that neither Trump nor Biden is going to do anything to stop and both will make worse. It seems to me that Americans should work on stopping the genocide that is happening in our own country with our vote rather than voting for some third party in protest or sitting at home when that has never worked.

I'm fairly certain a federal prison is not going to help me with my medical issues...

It's not a matter of whether or not he deserves it.

We have an eighth amendment to the U.S. constitution and if you're not familiar with it, this is it:

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Very simple. No cruel punishments. Regardless of whether you or anyone else feels that they deserve to be tortured.

And they really are well-meaning, I know that, but it's so tiring to say "yes, we've been over that. It's not that. I don't fit those symptoms." or whatever over and over.

I hope you find a solution for your IBD that helps you, I'm sure that's really awful.

On the one hand, why would you harass a whale? On the other hand, this is Jair Bolsonaro.

Weird how that article doesn't mention the huge role of American evangelicals in this and other anti-queer bills in Africa.

I know you're joking, but I am literally unable to.

No, but it's the same hospital.

If you're curious why I'm going there, I wrote about it in Casual Conversation- https://lemmy.world/post/12194311

Long story short: I haven't been able to eat any solid food for over six months and no one knows why.

(Please no medical advice, I am begging you. The general you, not you specifically.)

Dr. Jerome Adams, who was the nation's top doctor from 2017 to 2021, said he was slammed with an almost $5,000 bill after being treated for dehydration at a Mayo Clinic emergency department, where he got labs and a few IV bags.

Awesome. I'm going there at the end of March.

Cool. Who's financing him?

I do not apologize for the joke in the title.

In fact, I am proud of it.
