  1. Oh for sure there is to my knowledge. I know I've heard of hospitals that sound like they're supported by religion, like St. Mary Hospitals for example. There are hospitals, schools, and universities funded by mostly donations and such, but also from churches and the community even.
  2. Like what kind of new laws? The sad truth, is that some states still have same-sex marriage banned in their laws, but since the US legalized it, those bans no longer stand. I believe some states still list these bans. Soon enough, I imagine most states would remove the language outright.
  3. If you could reform healthcare to include all Americans, what do you think it would take for the Government to accept it? Would it cost us billions every year? How would you go about reforming health care for the better?
  4. What would you say is your worst experience with health care? I thankfully haven't had much health problems in recent years, but I do often worry about my health and whether or not I can even afford to go to the hospital when I get sick. I'm currently covered, but for how long, I don't know. The only issues I ever had, was with getting medication I really needed. I have asthma, and for some reason, some things aren't covered, so I often get stuck with a huge bill. Other than that, I've mostly been lucky, but I'm sure you all have some horror stories to share yourself.
  5. When it comes to custody cases, I feel like the mother tends to win most of the time, even when a child wants to stay with their father or other parent. I think that's kind of changing though, as I will admit, father's get a bad rap when it comes to custody battles. They always get painted out as the bad person, but it's not always the case. Mothers can be awful too.
  6. Well, there is such a thing as divorcing your parents. And I believe when you're 16 years old, you are able to divorce your parents if they are abusive, are not taking care of you properly and so on. I believe in order to do it, you may need a job or some way to support yourself after separating from your parents. There is of course also foster care and I'm sure another family member could take the child in as well.
  7. To some extent yes. If you get a divorce, you do need to hire a lawyer. It's usually part of the process. It sucks, but often times if it involved children, and that's even tougher to handle. A couple who don't have kids, will go much smoother, but it could result in both sides getting half of everything.
  8. Are you a child of divorce? I ask because my parents divorced when I was around 10 or so. It was rough at first, but I gradually got used to it. It also helped that my parents didn't hate each other, they just fell out of love. They always took great care of us kids. My parents never tried to hurt each other either, or try to keep us kids away from either. But, I know things differ for many families out there. If you are a child of divorce, how did it go for you?
  9. I can agree to that. I think for anyone making below that, it can be pretty tough to get good healthcare. I like the idea of having to go in every 6 months, that's fair I think. Because I'm sure they wouldn't want someone to just get the service for free.
  10. Usually it's fairly cut and dry. I get checked out, explain my issues, we talk, explain what I need to do and then go our separate ways. For the most part, I've never dealt with any rude doctors or nurses. I'm just afraid of going to the doctors/hospital in general.
  11. When it comes to friends and acquaintances, do you have any peers who you would consider an inspiration to you? Maybe they helped with something, or helped you understand things in life. Out of your peers, who has inspired you the most?
  12. If you happened to get divorced anytime in your life, what was the reason why? I have not been divorced, but my parents did and they had a mostly amicable divorce, nothing too bad or hard between the two. But, I have other family and friends who've gone through horrible divorces, some that resulted in one side getting full custody and so on. I know it's hard to discuss, but what caused your divorce? I understand if you don't want to speak about it though.
  13. One thing I found that has helped me in the past, is to try something new. If your life is blocked, try something new in your life. At least, within reason of course. Find something you've always wanted to do and do it. Go skydiving, get a ride in a race car, etc. It doesn't have to be big like anything I mentioned. It could be trying to learn to play an instrument, learn a new skill, read more, do things you normally don't. I think that could be helpful to inspiring someone.
  14. I think a lot of life insurances require you do those sorts of things to stay covered. At least to my knowledge some do. If you're unhealthy, your insurance goes up, but if you're safe, a non-smoker, don't drink, and get your bi yearly checkups, you shouldn't have a high bill or high rates. A lot of life insurances will require you to be healthy, otherwise your rates go up, because technically for the insurance agency, that person would be high risk if they're unhealthy. Healthy people are low risk, so they are easier to cover.
