Society CAN'T support us when we're old. As everyone knows our SS has already been robbed. The pharaceuticals (sp?) are already out of control, but at least they are developing drugs and cures to make all that $$$. If Drs and the research community have 'caps' on their earnings, I don't see anyone putting much effort into new discoveries and cures.
It is all political. ALL of it. It has nothing to do w/ the 'common good'. If the gov't was truly interested in the 'common good', it would have begun taxing us to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry. Feeding the hungry is not in this mess at all. ONly health care. WHY? Because it's power. It has nothing to do w/ helping anyone.
When we all have the same insurance and we are also forced to insure those who can't, we will be broke and there will be no more progress. Stuff like lyme will probably be chucked out the window. When our President makes a statement like this: Maybe many will have to take pain pills instead of an operation', then we know we are in trouble.
Sorry, I know this is not a political board, but these are my fears which are quickly approaching. There already is not enough research on stuff like LDN, because it is too cheap. No one can make any money off it, so why bother learning about
everything it can help.
IMO, the swine flu and breast cancer have become 'big business'. I don't even want to buy pink anymore, because it's everywhere and it means money for everyone who will use the colors. Yet there is no answer as to why this has become an epidemic. There is too much money to be make in it. Same for the swine flu, which is no more virulent than any other flu outbreak we have had. Kills far less people than some.
Gotta go, as Razz says, 'my 2 cents'.
