Superman's Heath Insurance Cancelled

CCN (Crazy Cal News) - RIPLEY, WV - In the small, sleepy town of Ripley, WV, no one suspected what evil lurked about. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow stopped Cal Jennings from writing at TheSpoof.com, but this could be different.

TheSpoof.com writer Cal Jennings had his insurance revoked back to April for exposing BP, the company he worked for, and its members for being part of the Corrupt Bastards Club and for making DVD videos for the Ron Paul campaign before the Iowa Straw Poll.

Mild mannered reporter, Cal Jennings, who a few at TheSpoof.com know to be Cal-el, the REAL Superman, learned that his insurance had been canceled after he went to the drug store to pick up the pain medication for his wife, who has cancer. The pharmacy refused to fill the medication because the insurance company refused to authorize the payment for the prescription.

Cal-el, being on Medicare, has to pay $466 a month for insurance and prescription coverage through BP for coverage on his wife and himself only. This coverage includes what medical costs Medicare won't pay and prescriptions up to 80%. He only receives Social Security Disability of $1500.00 a month, his rent is $240.00, one basket of groceries was $223.00, prescriptions not covered by his insurance are a little over $1000.00, the water bill was $65.00 a month, but just went up 25%, electricity is $180, and writing for TheSpoof.com pays him $0.00, as did making the videos for Ron Paul's campaign.

Cal Jennings has been reported as saying,

    "I can understand why BP would cancel my insurance. They are a small, struggling company who only makes billions in profit. They can't afford to be insuring disabled people who lost their jobs after working for them for years because of their disabilities. It's not right for people who are imperfect to claim insurance rights for only $466 a month. We should be ashamed of ourselves."

It seems that Cal-el will soon have little option but to live in the woods as a hermit until the second coming of Jesus Christ. He is considering divorcing his wife just so she can afford to eat and get treatment for her cancer. This is evidently the same reason that Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin got divorced.

You would think that this kind of story would get media attention, but it seems that stories about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears having wild, gay, lesbian sex are far more important in the minds of many readers.
