Response to Race isn't the problem
that we do need reform in many areas, especially healthcare. MOST people do not need to go see, call, or collaborate with so many of their doctors and hospitals like it is a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly rite. If you are a decent doctor or other professional, why in the world would you or your entourage need to advertise so ruthlessly? And as for the chemicals that some of you are buying or selling, what in God's name is so beneficial about 24/7 advertising of products with more deadly implications than reliable results? Most Americans have bought into one of the most perverse and inflated bureaucracies ever invented at the expense of the entire society. There is no way in hades or heaven that all of this hysterical quackery is helpful. Good professionals and their patients are paying the price for idiots, sorry ar$eholes, and lazy practitioners. Stop the madness and speak the truth. Countless families struggle to pay their medical bills and get mixed messages about the benefits of various drugs, the longterm risks, or the alternatives. There seems to be very little consensus and more cost shifting to cover liabilities and lose the paper trail. You have far too many victims of bad medicine and flawed practices, because of the hypersales by bureaucrats in corporate, academic, and government bodies. People are not usually as stupid as you think, and most of us can learn from our mistakes when given a chance. Do not mislead the public with waste and bad investments that only make matters worse. See inflation. Our young people deserve better and should learn that much of life is common sense, good habits, and respect for life and liberty. For those who have greater needs, we should assist whenever possible to take care of those who cannot do for themselves. The rest need to get back to work and clean living. Life is much more simple without those little weapons of massive personal destruction. Just say no. The good doctors used to give good care and advice as part of their service. Listen more. See the movie "Extraordinary Measures" for inspiration. Some change is necessary. It will take time. It always has. Do not blame the good physicians for those who misuse, abuse, or use their patients and the system as a huge means of earning millions at the expense of the taxpayors, investors, or donors with limited understanding or concern about the ramifications of their actions. Previous generations did not demand an arm and a leg from so many of their clients. We can do better. Work together. If the dcRATS and the financial institutions do not have any better ideas, what say you? Save some for the children. It will pay dividends in the next life.
