Yeah good point, whenever we have a big snowstorm I'm always thinking where are all the kids at?

When I was a kid my friends and I were always walking around with our shovels after a storm trying to make a buck or two.

Around here, instead of kids you see Hispanic Men going around with shovels. I think some kids think that if you have to sweat to do it, you're suppossed to hire a Mexican. When I was a kid, Ms. Garret from Diff'rent Strokes was the only maid that I ever heard of. Now, I am the only adult I know who cleans his own GD house. Most people think they are too important to perform physical tasks. I don't think they're lazy, I just think they have a distorted view of themselves and this rubs off on their kids.

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

I think the real problem with health care is that all of the parties involved tend to point the finger at the other person. Like the Ins Co. saying its the doctors and hospitals and the doctors blaming the Ins. co. etc. Maybe if the goverment, doctors, insurance co, Rx, and the hositals and places that provide the services would just sit down and have open talks they could figure out ways to improve the system. I would also include everyday Americans in these talks. It just seem to me evryone is always point the finger at someone else when all involved have a % of blame.

I'll get right on it.

Healthcare is a modern day Gordian Knot. Unfortunately, I don't see an Alexander the Great on our political horizon.

Exactly. A system which allows the service provider to make as much money as possible for giving the best service to the consumer, and punishes the service providers who don't, is the best system around. Profit motive is a wonderful thing for everybody.

Why that is so hard for some people to understand is beyond me.

Speaking of profits, here's a great piece by John Stossel on a slightly different, but relevant topic.

100% true.
We seem to think that one person can fix it, and that is completely untrue.

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

There are too many psychos out there and parents aren't letting their kids out of sight like the old days. It's really sad.

Re: Michael Moore's Latest Target: Your HMO

You know...why don't all of you who voted for that joke in John Kerry call his ass to the carpet if you feel this is all horrible. John Kerry sits on the finance committee in the Senate, and he's on the subcommittee for health care and on the social security and family policy subcommittee.

If you can so easily blame Bush, why not blame the guys that are actually on these committees????
