...the senators in Washington took the cowardly route. Preserving their own jobs is more important to them than doing what the overwhelming majority of the American people want. Fire them! Vote them out! They don't care about you!

This is as pissed as I've ever seen our President.

I don't know the ins and outs of all of this, but what I see is Hawaii, which has socialized health care. People there are taxed at a much higher rate, yet they're happy with it.

I suppose being surrounded by beautiful beaches would help in the happiness factor, but I'm not stupid enough to think that what I want will not cost lots of money.

One of the greatest problems with our country is we have very expensive health care, but we do NOT have the best health care. Capitalism does not work in health care for many reasons, one being that the real money is to be made in maintenance of chronic conditions and diseases. Our country as a whole eats too much and all the wrong things, and we don't exercise enough. The overwhelming majority of our ills stem from obesity. But since there's no money in wellness, take a pill for whatever ails you.

I'm not much for consipracy theories, but I do wonder if some diseases and chronic illnesses would have been cured by now, if simply managing them until they got the better of you (and cost several more thousand before you finally die) wasn't where the profit came from. And let us not forget those who are unfortunate enough to contract some extremely rare disease, because there's no money in treating those.

And that's all I'm going to say on this subject, because frankly, I've had a very busy day and now it's bed time.

Goodnight, all.
