Insurance is a good bet in these instances.
    Considering "Health Care" is the third leading cause of death in the US. And that sex education had demonstrably reduced the instance of teen pregnancy in the US...albiet I suspect those numbers are increasing again.

    I'd rather have a system where health education is required before one can become insured. But then again, the food industry lobby wouldn't stand for it very long in that their products are the #1 cause of most disease.

    Where did I say whites were more evolved than africans in my treatise? I don't think adaptation or mutation is the same as evolved, though that may be the first conclusion, based on how evolution is obvious. No, I was trying to say, sorry my writing needs some work, is that the first white baby must have been quite a shock to black parents and the community. But you can't, naturally, throw away a kid, my theory says that the community decided to make this ugly babe something special and they did by naming it so.

    I think most people at that point were intuitives.

    Unless it's their parents educating them most kids don't listen to a word. And even then they learn by example not words alone. If a national entity wants to make a statement then every rule and law must be made to uphold the supreme education. Which isn't possible due to Plato's problem with logic and all.

    Pragmatically, health reform MUST include a change in training programs for medical personel to start. Plus all healthcare people need to know from the outset they do not enter the profession to make the big bucks. I can see paying a skilled surgeon more but most surgeons are skilled or why go into the biz?

    Alternative medicine needs to be taken seriously and not just from insurance agencies. All healthcare needs to rethink pricing. I'm thinking by the hour. They are paid by the hour, by the event or problem or whathaveyou, or by technical equipment, and every consumer needs to know what their ailment costs. It seems weird that consumers have no idea what their little 'toe' problem costs everyone else (including employers).

    And I add my prayer for all of us to remain as healthy as possible while on earth!

    Well wren, I think the people performing the healthcare function are fairly and adequately paid...

    What many people are not aware of is that the hospitals, labratories, etc. Are owned by business people who have nothing to do with providing healthcare at all, they're just overhead and make the biggest salaries.

    i.e. A local hospital made 30 Million in revenue last year, but the CEO lost $180 Million in the global casino. So they cut healthcare worker staff hours to help improve the balance sheet while the CEO collected a million dollar bonus for loosing $180 Million dollars.

    That's not the exception in the industry, that's the rule.

It's this huge entity of wrongdoing that swirls around in the tornado in the sky and ocean, of garbage, this is true (look it up in wikipedia). Anyway I am guilty as an individual for what my country did to others and also what I did as one solitary stupid person to another. I wholeheartedly support any repayment for personal or collective injury to said victim(s) wither emotionally or physically. On the other hand in my historical lifetime, meaning the history of the world as I know it, this guilty country (usa ) has most probably been the most generous contributor to the needy communities around the world that I'm aware of and [I'm a little perplexed by this] but still regard my spirit as having a range of freedom rarely felt on planet earth (I'm highly developed, ya know). Seriously though, Thank you, us. On another note or hand (writing must be pleasant to the ear), maybe it is because we have as a collective energy wanted desired so immensely to be in control (due to lots of childish dominance/submissive issues) that we got ourselves into this mess in the first place. hahahahaha breaking things, feeling remorse, fixing things, and etc... just saying
    This is the most obnoxious shit I've ever read on the internet. And I've been surfing since 1995.

    Congratulations.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Do you know what the difference is between a casino and the stock market? In terms of gambling.

    It's a genuine question, not a joke. Unless you're the house, you're statistically likely to lose in a casino. In the stock market, you're statistically likely to gain. The average gain, per annum, is 8-11% on the stock market (using the S&P 500 as an indicator), accounting even for the great depression and this current financial situation.
