RiaD is a Kossack, and a friend of mine.
She might be a friend of yours, too.
I know she’s a friend of Something the Dog Said, ’cause he cross-posts his Sunday Bread threads to Ria’s blog:
What have we, as a nation, become, when nice, middle-class people like Ria and MrD can no longer afford to see doctors…or pay for the medications that can keep them alive and moving?
What have we, as a nation, become, when shlubs like me work 50-hour weeks in total pain b/c I can’t afford time off from work & still pay rent?
But this ain’t about me. It’s about Ria, and her COPD. She needs the prescription medications. She has been feeling poorly a lot, these last few months, and it’s b/c she can’t afford the necessary drugs. And that’s just WRONG. Worse, it’s immoral. It’s anti-Christian, too. I think I am angryest of all at those self-promoting so-called “christians” who are destroying the social safety net of this country.
But that, too, is a side issue. Right now, what we need to do is make sure Ria gets enough money to pay for her meds. She’s one of us: she’s a Kossack and she’s a liberal, and she’s on the side of the angels, unlike the GOP. Show some love. Keep a Kossack alive:

If you have an extra five bucks, well, everything helps. It will mean the world to Ria — and to her grandchildren. (Ria: Insert pics of grandkids here, plz.)
