May I add a second "B"?"Battered" - the American
Psyche is in unnecessarily bad shape. We have some things to work on,
certainly, but with our economy 3 times the size of China's, and US
manufacturing output 40% greater than China's, we're not just looking over our
shoulder, we've permanently swiveled our neck & become anxiety-ridden worry
warts.The long term prospectus of the US is very bright. Our
population is growing, likely to hit 400 million in 20 years or so. Our ideals
are still very attractive around the world. We're very productive, an
innovative.There are certainly things to focus on and resolve, but
America is very strong. We need to remember that before we worry ourselves into
a double dip recession.
Communist China? The same government that was the cause of the Vietnam war?
"The year 1989 is the most important year inthe history of South
Korean National HealthInsurance Program. In July, the health insuranceprogram for urban areas was expanded to includethe self-employed. It
took 12 years from the estabishmentof the Medical Insurance Act to
achieveuniversal health insurance coverage for all citizens.About
ten years later, in 2000, all healthinsurance societies were integrated
into a singleinsurer, the National Health Insurance Program."Korea (North) Massive failure of this centrally planned economy leads
to frequent "saber rattling." Meanwhile, the South Korean economy
continues to prosper.Universal health coverage will destroy the economy.
Ask a Republican
One voteWas China the real cause of the Vietnam war or was it our fear of
the domino effect? What makes some so scared and vocal about universal health
care? Who benefits from private owned hospitals where decisions are motivated
solely by profit?
Global economy is a well orchestrated monopoly of world debt and who controls
it. The world economy is one of debt, not profit or manufacturing or a good GNP.
Who ever controls the debt controls the world, and the US is leading the way to
a non recoveralbe system of world financial collapse. The US does not control
the debt, we are the leaders of indebtedness and its collapse.This
is more reason not to give Obama a higher debt ceiling, and those who get out of
this mindset and corrupt world finance will be the winners. The fate of the
world economy is established, now its a matter of who can survive its collapse.
