Obama Care Why -Why Not

Nurse care-433 x 640-jpg

Why are so many on the right afraid of helping all Americans to get health care? Simple answer is money! Republicans like to make money plain and simple. From small business to big business it’s all about money and not what’s right for most people.

Some things should not be about profit. Peoples health is not a political game of the right against the left! It’s a moral given!

The ACA or what the republicans named it Obamacare is a start for Americans toward better health care. Now it’s time to fix it not break it! So many people in Canada, England and other countries like what they have for health care. We should be looking to other countries to see which one has the best for there citizens! We don’t need to start from scratch when there are so many examples around the world!

Lightning or Fear of Terrorism?

Why is Trump Pushing Fear of Muslims?

Consider the facts

Many of my friends tell me they are worried about terrorism. I’m not! Am I suicidal? No, I’m not!
Here are a few facts: From Sept. 12, 2001 to Dec. 31, 2015, there were 104 people killed by terrorists in the US. That is about 7.5 per year. Of those, 24 were killed by foreign born terrorists. That is about 1.7 per year. The others ( 80 people) were killed by American-born terrorists. According to the National Weather Service, in the last 10 years the number of deaths in the U.S. due to lightning is about 31 per year. So, it is clear that in the last 10 years we were at least 10 times more likely to be killed by lightning than a foreign-born terrorist. Are we so worried about being killed by lightning? I don’t think so. I hope I have made my point.
So why do we have this onerous immigration ban in effect? I suspect it is a combination of an ignorant Donald Trump and his unwitting accomplices, the television business. Television knows that sensationalism sells. And Trump is just riding the wave of public sentiment to bolster his popularity.
Understand that I strongly believe that the U.S. government should continue to devote resources to screening immigrants and foreigners for terrorism or other threats. Kudos to the CIA, the FBI, Homeland Security and all those that keep us safe – but the facts do not warrant changes in immigration policy. You can check my facts and get many others from the report “Terrorism and Immigration, a risk analysis”, published September 2016 by Alex Nowrasteh from the CATO Institute. It is available on the internet for free.
