Question: When Your Insurance Company is the Biggest Risk, Who Insures You?

Who insures you against your insurance company? I paid for insurance against hazards like theft, water damage, tree limb fall, a toilet seat crashing through the roof. If I had enough money, I could insure against earthquake. I’d be paying big premiums for protection against an infrequent, but potentially very damaging event. I shoulda been a risk analyst.

Who insures against the risk of the insurance company itself? Who knew Safeco/Liberty Mutual would dispossess me? I could never have foreseen myself without the only home I’d ever known. My major concern when the tree limb fell on my home was not becoming homeless, but I am homeless nevertheless. Why am I homeless indoors? Because I should have bought insurance against the hazard of my insurance company. I don’t know who sells it. Do you?

I consider the One-Drop Rule one of the legal cruelties and inhumanities of slavery. It demonstrates one cannot expect morality from legality. It demonstrates the intense concern white folks took to distinguish, to make binary categorizations of human beings that would deny them civil equality.

What are You Afraid to Write?

I’m afraid to write that Vince Paglia, the president of Protech Construction, the contractor who lied to my face, stole my home, stole $80+K, and claimed he didn’t know me, is about to be cited by the Contractors State License Board. He may lose his license if he doesn’t pay me what he owes.

I’m afraid to write that Kent Stiles, the claims adjuster who works for Safeco/Liberty Mutual, has not yet been stopped. He has kept my claim file in suspense for a year. No matter who I speak to at Safeco/Liberty Mutual, no matter how many times I tell the story of how Stiles has falsified documents, lied to me, manipulated numbers, I get sent right back to him for resolution. Makes no sense. I am very concerned about customers of this insurance company. They have too many complaints, always said to lowball all estimates, poor general customer service, and the slowest response rates in Christdom.

I am afraid no longer. Funny how that writing what you fear works.

Safeco Liberty Mutual Contacts

Good morning, lieblings! Facebook would not allow me to send these email addresses to Liberty Mutual’s legal department (legal-subpoenas@lm.com). For some reason, lm violates community standards. I don’t have time to figure that one out, so I can put anything I like on my page. There you go.

There is also an address for reporting fraud, abuse@libertymutual.com. However, I think they want fraud committed against the insurance company reported, and they care not for notifications that they are defrauding customers.

Type, Don’t Write

All sorts of info, directive filters into my headspace. The title is a result of this seepage. Either I read this dictate, saw it in passing on television, likely in an ad, or it was splashed at me through subliminal advertising. Who knows?

Doing so many things in a day. Ramadan always calls for a period of adjustment, generally a turning around of activity. Eating and drinking can go on during the night, but dawn sees the resumption of the fast. Day is now for contemplation. Night is for getting things done.

Night offers quiet. Getting things done must be accomplished in quiet. It is a blessing. It is calming. It is a refuge from the surrounding madness. The homeless remain, increasing in number. What need have I for pictures when the blind cannot see them? Mummy could ignore a lot of things because she was deaf in one ear. Ceaseless drips from a faucet set my teeth on edge.

Type, don’t write. Need to read more Faulkner and O’Connor. 1955 was a significant year. Read Faulkner’s coverage of the Kentucky Derby of 1955 in Sports Illustrated. Got no need for sports, but I do love horseracing. So many Black men built that sport. Built the South. Built the nation. But The Misfit runs the nation right now. Flannery said so.

The recitation continues. May your Ramadan bear fruit.
