Wow! Good for Daniel Hannon! We need more people courageous enough to take a stand and to speak up as coherently and with the ability to tell it like it REALLY is and not what the master spinmeisters would have us all believe.
I would vote for this man!
You should hear his opinions of our heading toward socialism and why he believes it would be disastrous, which he discusses as someone who has lived through it.
I don't pretend for a second to understand the financial world (Ha! I'm sure that's obvious :), but that's all right as it seems the "financial" people and powers that be don't either. But I think I have something that I feel they don't have anymore. COMMON SENSE!
I was surprised to hear that Germany, France and China are concerned and lecturing the United States about our drifting toward socialism (That's rich -seriously!) and the way in which we are handling our money. And that we are trying to get China to buy more bonds.
And the German Chancellor is resisting our socialist trends. GOOD for her!
Doesn't China already own a lot now?
I feel concern when I hear how much real estate, etc., foreign investors have bought up... even prior to this financial debacle of epic proportions.
I also heard today that England is in such dire straights that they just tried to get a stimulus package going but the people turned them down because there is NO money. Will we come to that?
Our political leaders better wake up, stop allowing themselves to be bought and start working for the good of the country and the people that voted for them.
I am usually a conservative... but God as my witness... I will vote for the politicians that I believe consider being elected a privilege and an opportunity to serve the people if they can demonstrate their abilities for leadership. Maybe a third party will rise up because of these things because... right now...I don't have a whole lot of faith in either party and most of the politicians have sold out to lobbyists.
I was questioning the political leadership we have now with my doctor today. I don't recall verbatim what he said, but the gist was that perhaps the people have to fall hard enough to realize what is important and things will change. When you suffer because you go too far one way, you'll try harder to make things right again.
Wouldn't THAT be refreshing?!
Weren't we the role model for capitalism at it's best? What IS happening here?
I also heard... that with our own economy imploding like it is, that China is pushing for a one world monetary system. I really hope we do not do that.
I think it is extremely important to maintain our national sovereignty and we should never give that up under any circumstances.
I feel like we are witnessing the erosion of the American values that this country was founded upon. I wonder what our forefathers would think? What would they say? Would they allow these things?
And I am astounded at the rapidity (only a couple of months) ... with which such drastic changes are looming over us. And we aren't even through this financial debacle and now they are going to change health care.
My concern...among many regarding this issue...is that they will just plow ahead...without weighing in on the opinions from the medical professionals in health care. Kind of like the CEO directing the full code going on in the ED without any medical training enabling him/her to make the right calls that will save the patient's life.
Oh and I am squirrelly about my medical records again because my doc and I were discussing the privacy issue about a patient's medical records vs the government having the right to your information if you are being funded by the government. It turns out that my doctor said he learned early on what not to say in medical records and that he looks out for his patients. I told him I was really upset that a patient can't just come in and pour their heart out without being fearful that it could be used against them.
But I digress.
Forget red flag warnings! We have a bunch of international flags waving...warning us not to go down this road!
But...is anyone listening?
I hope so.
