Ghost Dog Was Prophetic & Insurance Cannot Pay For Known Monthly Expenses

The movie Ghost Dog was about as prophetic as any movie ever made.

The rise of feminism leads to the death of the principled man.

The principles, in Ghost Dog's case, are from the Way of the Samurai, but he doesn't work for a Japanese lord; instead he's a black man working for a Mafia guy who once stuck his neck out and saved Ghost Dog as a kid, and things are changing even for the Mafia.

The Mafia don has a daughter. The plot line has her as troubled, and sleeping with one of Mafia guys, so they put out a hit on the guy she is sleeping with. Ghost Dog does the hit, and she sees him. He doesn't kill her.

Now that he's seen, the Mafia don appears to feel compelled to kill Ghost Dog. Ghost Dog isn't really killable, but he does have these principles. Principles turn out to be his weakness, and his lord turns out to be one of these unprincipled men who aren't really that much different from the average man, who scuttle around trying to make sure the women in his life are happy.

This is why people are pretending contraception can be insured against. Contraception is a known monthly expense. Insurance also happens to be a known monthly expense, so why not just ask the insurance company to pay your premium? I suppose it might dawn on you that they could, but then they wouldn't have any money when something unforeseen happens. In other words, you don't want your insurance company paying for known monthly expenses because you want it to have revenue for those other events, the one's you aren't planning for, like a car wreck, emergency surgery, etc...

People think this Hobby Lobby thing is a win; I think it is ludicrous it had to go in this direction at all, and this ruling probably has more to do with making some woman happy- there are women who don't like contraception you know, and Christian men are usually being just as unprincipled trying to keep their women happy as anybody else- than it does with keeping us free. It is still treated, and people are actually being taught, that these known monthly expenses are part of insurance. How many known monthly expenses may I insure for? Perhaps I can get an actual living wage through insurance, and just forego working altogether?
