How the Walfare State and Universal Health Care actually hurts poor people more

Start at 3 minutes into it. 2;22 seconds if you are concerned about Social Security too.



Here's how competition and getting rid of insurance companies will improve health care.




Now,I know Stossel can be a bit one sided and had a few instances of being dishonest, but his ideas in this video are pretty good. I would like to add that preventative medicine is key. Most diseases are caused by lifestyle and lack of knowledge of how the body and health works- therefore they shouldn't be paid for by taxes because the individual should take care of their own health. In those rare cases of crisis or catastrophe I believe that the government should help out - but those things happen less often than how often people usually go to the doctor. Also, the REAL problem in the US health care system lies with the insurance companies, and those problems need to be addressed.

Some videos you gotta watch

If you want to understand the economy, why the dollar is falling, why inflation is rising (why your money is getting worth less and less), how the fed cutting interest rates actually hurts the economy and how this all relates to the extremely rich elite people controlling the economy for their own selfish gain at the expense of the middle and lower classes- watch this.

Disdain for Formal Education

Classroom learning is such a crappy way to learn. Sit down, shut up, let me tell you the facts (very slowly). I've learned more from Wikipedia and quicker than I ever have at school. I don't focus on the details, I get right to the point- like they teach in Europe.

HOLY HELL!

Novelist Kurt Vonnegut dies at age 84

Wow. This has got to be the first famous person who has ever died who I actually care about and will miss and actually inspired an "OH MY GOD!" I wonder how  I will feel when certain others will pass.

Wow. And I was just on Amazon a few days ago reading reviews for Man Without a Country.

Ah damn. A wonderful cynical social commentator who will be missed.

I have yet to read his stuff, but from the looks of it, he has some amazing stuff. He will most likely be a favorite.

What I really want to do is be deep and do things that take all day to do. I like to write and read, but once I get engrossed in them I want the whole day to be influenced by it. Take a walk by a river, a conversation on a bench and let the day go with the flow. Ah how I hate the regular work week of 5 days on 2 days off, I really can't work that way. When I'm on, I'm on; when I'm on break, I'm on break and want to be on for at least 3 days in a row. People always ask me "What do you want to do after college?" and the simple answer is, "Whatever allows me to work 3-4 days a week and leaves the other time for me.  I have a slew of ideas, I just need the time to investigate them.
