When it comes to the Health Insurance Reform topic I am not going to reflect (in my blog) my opinion, how I feel, etc… I would become a victim of blog assassination, if I did. Too much hatred (like road rage) out there for me to do that.
I will tell you this though. I am an observer of people and have been for years. Especially, from a behavioral standpoint. This topic of Healthcare Reform is a major change that will or could have an impact for us all. Again, I’m not revealing my feelings on this, either way… From the behavioral standpoint, at least in my region, I see people talking and talking and talking; but not saying anything. Why? Because they have no idea what they are talking about. It is the same folks who are still looking for those weapons of mass destruction.
One of my favorite sayings is, “believe nothing and verify everything”. In this specific case of Health Insurance Reform, “verify everything”. DO NOT rely on the propaganda of the media to “dumb you down”. The media is a business (of greed & sensationalization), fed by political influences, that relies on stirring up the population to the point of hatred (toward each other) and division (even within our Congress). Our leaders are even afraid to make decisions, because it is “all about me” and “not us” (as a unified country). DO NOT rely on the information that is circulating via the email circuits. If you are, then you are really being taken for a ride.
So before you start talking, pointing fingers, and ready to beat your neighbor up, GET THE FACTS and become an expert of the information; however use good resources. A good starting point for this is the White House [ HERE ] AND [ HERE ] . Again, and I know I may get comments telling me to not trust the White House; BUT, please do not be one of these people that tell me to hate my President, but love thy neighbor. The information I am presenting to you is your starting point to GET THE FACTS, then start digging and just maybe when the talking starts you can GIVE THE FACTS, can realistically debate your concerns; AND, in the end, love your neighbor.
Note: I encourage you to comment and I also encourage you to read the comments that have been posted [ HERE ].
