    I Have to say I love this great nation but I can see why the postman lost it. Thanksgiving morning I had three teeth decide that they want to fester and put me down .It hurt so bad I almost passed out a couple times and I am tripping cause we have Christmas coming,living check to check.... Oh and I just lost my job for the winter ....it is just not the kick in the???? I need.Lilly and all the kids have insurance but not good ole dad.I am not to proud to know I need freaking help here and I did goto get it but the great thing about our nation is no matter what you dont have you still need more.I have to go see a local dentist to get refered to the university and the good ole jaw aint cutting me no slack.I called around and one secratary informed me no payments ,as everywhere else .After about 6 of these calls one tells me I'd better get er done with that jaw swellin up it could be life threatning.I come a little unglued and give her a nice piece of my mind and I hung up on her.I am ticked...I dont want no freakin hand out but I need help,I work my butt off diong whatever I can for my familey and this has a devistaion factor financialey since two years ago me and Lilly put it all on the line to get our house.WE DONT HAVE IT LIKE THAT! I bet if I snuck over on a ship Id Get er done............GOTTA LOVE THE SYSTEM THOUGH!

    Kenny ya got pain I hear. Ya got a fever too? Ya start running or have a fever ya need to get yerself to a Dr. if not a dentist. You'll need some antibiotics for sure. Ain't nothing to mess with. Wish I could help, but my big luxury is the dial up for the PC, LOL.

    Kenny, get your butt up to Iowa City to the dental school tomorrow. If you get septic you could be in deep doodoo. They have a program there that can help you until things get better for ya. A lot of folks around here use them if things are tight.

    I used to do my share of dental work, esp on dogs. But I don't know about you Kenny. I worked on some mean dogs, but you might be more than I could handle.

    Get to Iowa City. Prob a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive for you.

    Your favorite go to guy to roast 'Ol John "The Deathwatch" beetle.

    Now Kenny, you know I like pain, but not my own. Anyway ifn you come over I'll get my trusty angle head visegrips out of the garage and pull them out myself. I know you hate to ask, but I'd do for a friend and a fellow BOCer no problem. Anyway if you don't want me to do it, I'll runn you down to BWHUPP in Belleville. I spent 4 years of my like in that area, and I think I can find it again. Let me know. Later Andy

    Just don't do like those Mexicans did a few years ago and try to shoot them out. LOL I don't know who started that fad but several people ended ALL their pain trying that. My brother-in-law finally got 100% disability from the V.A. and is going in Jan. 1st to have all his pulled. Dentists are one of the biggest scams out there. Mine weren't even bothering me until last month when I went for a cleaning, and spent $3,000 for cleaning, scaling, and a couple fillings. Then a few days later one broke in half while I was eating...another $385. Now they say I will need a root canal soon...another $1,900 for one tooth that they may not be able to save anyway. Where's my pistol?

    Yup, we are all in the wrong business. That ceramic crown that's gonna cost you $1900 cost the dentist between $70-$80 from the lab. BOHICA!

    And vision wear, frames, lenses and such has a 500% mark up, lab to retail.

    Just a matter of how much you want to see what yer eating. Not like they have a scam going or anything......just another of lifes luxuries you have to pay for. LOL
