The American Nightmare…

I was shocked to see this appear on my FB timeline. It’s a painful that we don’t have health care in this country, we have sick care. The dark side of this care is the bill the patient gets stuck with aka an uninsured American. This bill is for just being in the hospital for 5 days. I got a chest infection in the UK, was kept there eight days and they sent me off with an extra dose of my asthma medicine. How much did I have to pay? Nothing. While I was bored to tears by the fifth day; I couldn’t help but be grateful I wasn’t going to get stuck with an astronomical bill like this one. The taxes in the UK are outrageous, but at least I know I will be taken care if I got sick. The NHS (UK Healthcare) is far from perfect — however —I would rather be treated under NHS than here in America.

The British actress, Archie Panjabi, won an emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actress” in the CBS series “The Good Wife.” She plays a private investigator Kalinda Sharma on the hit series. She’s no stranger to spy roles, in 2009, she portrayed an MI5 agent in a french movie Espions. A linger question regarding Archie’s character Kalinda Sharma… is she bisexual? My gaydar has gone off, you can’t help notice her intense flirting tactics around women. Panjabi just smiled at the question and said she won’t say anything, we will just have to see! As I look at this picture of Archie holding the Emmy, I have a feeling we will be seeing her win more awards in the years to come!
