Uncle Tom's Cabin

well alas i read this book   finished it last nite   Great book, but it tore at my heart throughout it   it reminded me that i came from a confederate family   lo & behold i had forgotten   i've moved so far away from it   anyways, it's all history now   God i ask, how could we be so ignorant back then?   and we have come far, but still need to grow......anyways, today was spent buying the last of my Christmas gifts   on thursday i finally remembered my other nephew who just left for Afghanistan in October   so i sent his package today-Hickory Farms   i'll send a different care package in a few weeks   just acquired the list last night of what he needs   he's up in those mountains there patroling  i pray for his safe journey home   all our troups....after shoppin', i was at Marsha's trying to hook up her dvd player to her dish satellite system   no luck   so we rented Sicko on pay-per-view    i came home to have a drink after that movie   got my bailey's & coffee in hand   i was almost ready to pack and move to another country after seeing this, but i love America too much    the conclusion i came to awhile back, which the movie hit on, was we're a lot about money   i think we could use a socialist health care system though   we're the only country in the west who hasn't adopted such   i'm fortunate for my health care, but there are just too many people not fortunate enough   and our HMOs are raking in the money for profit   maybe America will wake up one day and push for a change....anyways, so much for that.....Life is Good for me   i am blessed with friends and family and the VAMC   ....Christmas is almost here....

I soooooo agree with you about our healthcare system and my husband is a doctor.  There is no perfect answer, but it could be improved greatly.  I am so concerned for our troops right now.  When they come back and are injured, it seems as though we rate their injuries so they can't get adequate conpensation and they can't go back to work either.  Have a great Christmas.  Anne

I think health care is a basic service just like sewer and water,roads and fire protection.
