A Friend In Need

I get off work tonight, and go to see my teacher.

She's upset and needs her best friend to talk to.

That's me.

She's scared.  About the Obamacare ruling.  She doesn't make money.  No one in her family makes a lot of money.

None of them know how they are going to be able to afford this.

Apparently, some are talking of returning to Israel, which they absolutely do not want to do, but they'll have an easier time finding work and such there.

I stayed with her as long as she needed.

Now I'm home.  After working a job that spares me from the nightmare millions of others around the country are facing.  The unemployed.  The unemployable.  Those for whom the simple, "Just do this and things will be fine," just doesn't work for them.

"It can't rain all the time."

No, but it looks like it will be coming down for a long long time.

More thoughts on the Obamacare ruling tomorrow once I get some sleep.  It's going to be another Capital Gains segment.  And grab yourself a sandwich and a beer, it's gonna be a long one....
