Black. Lives. MATTER!

So yeah. A football player takes a knee during the national anthem and the country goes insane.

Two more black men doing nothing wrong are shot dead, one by the side of the road and one while reading a book in his car.

WTF is wrong with this world? I am so very DONE with this wholesale slaughter of black men. And then that tired out meme of Not All Cops.

Except that it seems to be just that. The good ones sure aren't speaking up about it, so they are fucking well complicit.

Some people just want to watch the whole world burn

Diabetic? Broke? Underinsured? Maybe these will help

(I put this together for a community group I'm in on FB, thought maybe some of you could use it too)

For insulin, Walmart sells 70/30 insulin for only $24.88 a bottle. They have a special deal with Novolin, that regular pharmacies can't get, so regular pharmacies have to charge over $100 a bottle. So get your 70/30 there.

For test materials: The True Metrix blood sugar meter and strips are the cheapest available that are also reliable. 100 strips on Amazon are less than $18, and the meter on Amazon is $40 with free shipping and includes 100 test strips, 100 lancets, and a lancing device: https://www.amazon.com/TrueMetrix-Blood-…/…/ref=sr_1_4_a_it…

For insulin syringes, you have to have a prescription, but you can order them online at, of all places, pet supply places. Here's the one I used to use: http://www.allegromedical.com/…/monoject-insulin-syringe-1c…

For the three month A1C test, you can go to Dr Griffin, and he'll do it for $50, or you can order two tests, which will take care of six months of testing from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/A1C-NOW-test-kit-…/…/ref=sr_1_9_a_it… and that runs about $44 with free shipping.

I'm a diabetic who was without insurance for years, and this is how I stayed alive. I have no hidden agenda, just want to help people in the same boat I was in.
