"yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata abhyutthanam dharmasya tadatmanam srjamy aham paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge " -Vasya Translation from 'Bhagavad Gita As It is": Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion--at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I advent Myself millennium after millennium.
  2. I cannot find any data that reports the cost incurred for testing
  3. I want to pull a few figures into this thread, and will try to make them relatively accurate. These are the costs of what you might expect to see when the insurer sends you a bill for covid-related treatments. The average cost of covid related treatment for at an american hospital is estimated to be between $51,000-$78000 The average cost hospitals give to HMO is $38000, not factoring copayments which amount to an estimated tax-savings of $2.5 billion rebated revenue ($8,000-$17,100 per individual/household). https://www.forbes.com/sites/debgordon/2020/11/24/most-health-insurers-are-waiving-covid-19-costs-for-consumers-new-analysis-shows/?sh=3fc517c13515 "over 6 million low-income individuals and long-term care services for the elderly and disabled, primarily through payments to over 80,000 health care providers and more than 50 fully and partially capitated managed care plans." https://www.budget.ny.gov/pubs/archive/fy21/exec/agencies/appropdata/HealthDepartmentof.html annual employer-sponsored premiums rose to $21,342 per capita in 2020 https://www.kff.org/health-costs/report/2020-employer-health-benefits-survey/ Healthcare Expense as a % of GDP https://www.brookings.edu/research/a-dozen-facts-about-the-economics-of-the-u-s-health-care-system/ Financial protection the primary motive for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) https://www.who.int/health_financing/topics/financial-protection/en/ In 2018 the percentage of who covers these costs were like this: "The largest shares of total health spending were sponsored by the federal government (28.3 percent) and the households (28.4 percent). The private business share of health spending accounted for 19.9 percent of total health care spending, state and local governments accounted for 16.5 percent, and other private revenues accounted for 6.9 percent." https://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Statistics-Trends-and-Reports/NationalHealthExpendData/NHE-Fact-Sheet In 2018 the percentage of who covers these costs were like this: "The largest shares of total health spending were sponsored by the federal government (28.3 percent) and the households (28.4 percent). The private business share of health spending accounted for 19.9 percent of total health care spending, state and local governments accounted for 16.5 percent, and other private revenues accounted for 6.9 percent." https://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Statistics-Trends-and-Reports/NationalHealthExpendData/NHE-Fact-Sheet We are looking at a lot of national spending that is borne of promisory notes to the u.s. treasury, so 2020 I have to assume that the federal government will have incurred a much higher percentage of costs, and there is a lot of budgetary haywire going on both in the U.S.A. and in NY state where I am from In 2020, NY has accrued in its general budget a yearly deficit that is $4B greater ($73B) than its entire debt rolling into 2020 from previous years. I have to think that a lot of it is coming from the new healthcare economic demands that are legal requirements of many hospitals and businesses. There are financial obligations coming in at local county state and national levels, through medicaid, medicare, federal financial obligations to health insurance agencies as well as financial obligations to supplemental medicare assistence agencies. So a lot more of this expense every year due to governmental promise to the health care industry are going to be paid for by bonds and through special stimulus of socialised subsidy, and this is like I said not only occuring through U.S. congress but at least $15B of NY's additional-2020 expense was due to "Covid-19 Relief". I think you should take some time to look at how much healthcare is causing financially, as a share percentage of who is bearing these expenses, and how your government policies could have changed due to how the representatives believe taxpayers can ultimately cover this healthcare expense. A lot of the finanicial issues due to Covid-19 is not only directly involved in healthcare, but in some form obligatory spending for both small businesses and larger companies, and budgetary considerations: for instance are surveillance equipment in hospital parkinglots considered a healthcare expense for hospitals, or is it counted as a nonhealthcare related expense budgetarily. Do larger publicly related corporations tend to have a better ability to write off certain expenses, compared with households and small businesses, and how do government auditors grant leniency in these separately organised financial categories (individual household, sole owned propriety, nonprofit corporation, private corporation, public corporation, et cetera), how is this expense treated per entity of taxation? Beaurocracies that were reporting under the Obama Administration, 2018 were able to report far less of the data compared to 2016, statistically speaking for government institutions of public disclosure. Higher budgetary expense due to stimulus spending and budgetary trends continuing from 2019 to 2020 and beyond, but then again less financial disclosure of how the government, households, and companies foot the bills for healthcare and insurers. But that should not be a detterent to seek out this financial information either for your personal benefit or for this thread to pull in data into how we can discuss how representative democracies can confront this healthcare expense and how to overcome the burden/insanity of a healthsystem in distress, a slew of federal governmental obligations used to support both medicare and healthcare corporations. With healthcare corporations, this is something that you need to extrapolate in your own scenarios. For Broome County NY, for instance we incurred a $132,000,000 promisory bond (taxpayer) to United Health Services, so that is like the hospitals (right before the covid). You have patient healthcare, and this is what initiates the algorithm of validity for whether or not one of UHS's local hospitals has satisfacorily provided the health service, which obligates another entity say UnitedHealthCare Insurance Co., to pay UHS for this medical service. UHS has its new emergency room built at the expense of the County, and they are paid for by insurers for each service. There are medicare based payees who are the direct fiduciaries of the U.S. treasury, and there are medicare supplement companies who are paid for by through the Obama Care ACA as well as through medicaid. So it is really a generalised term, but generally speaking it does not include travelling unlicenced medical professionals but rather refers to any business or entity who is supported legally through government financial assistence, either directly or indirectly. When you look at charitable hospitals, you look at the % of financial support that comes directly through private contributions versus the % of revenue that the nonprofit nevertheless has received from government, insurer, and many of the activities sponsored by that nonprofit through research grants considered as a separate function. Look it's quite the financial quagmire, but don't be a doomsayer like most people in this forum. The healthcare industry abroad is seeking perennial financial dependency, and will do so through the legitimization of these exchanges, contracts they can gain, "health outcomes", "hospital visits" (including online video encounter), as seen as a FINANCIAL OUTCOME for the business or entity. Look into how this is all expected to be paid for in your local community, and save the reports into a personal directory. I included this link that stated there were 6 million people who had medicare in NY, or 30% of the population. Even though it's a far-cry from universal health coverage, this is a lot and it does not include stipulations about how the government is paying in part or in whole for many other types of service associated with these "healthcare encounters/outcomes". We need to have this thread to start pulling in whenever a major insurance company discloses that their mission is to sustain the number of transactional services that a person should receive regarding the diagnosis/maintenance/followup of a disease whether it is biological or fictional a disease. Financial Transparency, who gets paid what for "what service", is the most important thing when it comes to public assurance that the health crisis is real, and that covid-19 is not an AI-sponsored campaign towards legitimizing "its own" financial goals, the goals of the fourth industrial estate. CEO's and public representative have a greater obligation to disclose how their corporations are being financed, and we must seek accurate data in order to help each other evaluate the actuality of our collective financial situations.

  5. I would have posted this about my son earlier today but I was still trying to find out what happened as I do not live in the same city he does anymore so am still getting as much information as I can. My son just turned 23 year old son Gabe and his friend William stopped by the 7-11 mini mart across from Wright Part in Tacoma in the early morning hours and both were randomly attacked and stabbed by a man standing by the front door, who asked them, "Did you say my name?" and all Gabe answered was "No, I don't know you" and then the man lunged at them and started stabbing him and his friend with a big knife he pulled out of his coat. My son gets very calm cool and collected when shit hits the fan around him or to him, so he managed to get his friend in his car and drive them both to the ER while trying to hold his own side shut (he had at least two wounds; I am still waiting to get the details of where and what all affected from the docs). They were both in critical condition at first and are now in stable condition at St.Luke's, thank all that is good and holy; waweena a holy thank you to Wah'Kon-Tah/Creator! It's so frustrating to not be able to go to him, and I am sure it is for him too, though we understand why the hospital won't allow family or friends in to visit him due to the risk of one of us unknowingly giving Covid to those in there who really don't need a case of that too on top of what they are already in there for. And it's a good sign they won't allow us to go there in person, actually, as they only allow family or friends in now to say their last goodbyes if their loved one is definitely dying, so it means they think he is going to survive this. In the early morning hours of December 1st, my son, Gabe Cameron and a friend went to the 7-11 and we're attacked by a man who stabbed both of them. My son got his friend into the car and drove to the hospital while bleeding and suffering from a collapsed lung from his own stab wound. My son and his friend are expected to make a full recovery but does not have insurance and will not be able to work for a while. We are raising funds for his medical bills and other expenses incurred from this brutal and unprovoked attack. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-my-son-after-a-brutal-attack?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf%20share-flow-1&fbclid=IwAR3m7NKaHFo6fvBkYQ0QvYDd_DBIzxGSLHRmadtMHkzol-u7qD73tRhPhLQ I know many of you will pray for his speedy and full healing and/or send him Light and good energy his way, and I do think and believe that all good energy and intent sincerely sent does help speed healing, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing so.
  6. /88even if the naturally evolving humans became awed or subverted by a more intelligent race, but original man could have had a religion a religious culture before they as such you've described had descended. the more you learn the more you become convinced, and it makes sense, except the part where religion was created to be used against 'ourselves'
  7. Guys, I know that David Icke was saying even back in May that Covid was all a hoax and stuff, and at the time I wasn't surprised because he associated this with a lot of issues involved with conspiracies and the surveillance state and human control mechanisms, you know. I suppose I could be described as a skeptic, being from NY supposively the epicenter of the american outbreak, and I didn't want to wear a mask because of the fluid dynamics of it all, and someone was going to sneeze into the 4 winds and all, there just wasn't any way that it would keep me from getting infected. But then, I guess it was about a week ago, I strapped my black boots on and started to look for any information I could find, you know about a person who became violently ill and someone these days ready with their iPhone to post it on youtube or whatever. I tried to find you know an electron microscope scan of the corona virus and compare it to ordinary influenza. The problem is that renown news channels such as ABC will present vague information; it is quite a disarray, when you are hearing dictums from the CDC official to a tersely read. you know glossed over kind of reporting, where the information is presented in the form of "they are saying this and that", and you do not know a single name to associate with who they may be. Or "the CDC is saying' when you know the CDC had been subverted from being an epidemiological pillar to becoming like a mouthpiece a clearinghouse of dictums, and the dictums are requests for individuals to figure it out on their own, basically. Well, but I actually have an inquiry from anyone, if you have found an actual image of the corona virus, to tell me who has produced the image (or what organisation originally), something with a legitimate citation you know the kind I would have to have when I wrote a research paper in high school, or to find any video of someone who has legitimate disease that is claimed or diagnosed as the SARS from covid-19? And please share the link in this thread if/when you do.
