Ignorance: The Unknown Weapon

By DKIdea, published on May 7, 2014

... it comes to certain subjects because the damage it will do to our world view is more than we can bare. I say we toughen up, ask the hard questions and accept the cold answers. If we don’t, how can we ever hope to make serious progress or shape a better world for our children?

Look at healthcare. The whole system is designed for making profit, so it shouldn’t be so hard to believe when we hear whispers of our health being given a deliberate back seat to profit margins. I mean, do you really think a pharmaceutical company is going to willingly lose money to make you healthy? People... (more)

The American Healthcare System, my thoughts on a disgrace

By Shaun Gibson, published on Sep 2, 2013

...it is a HARD read, but it must be read.

Are you for War or are you for the living? For me the choice is an easy one. Why allow your Government to spend BILLIONS on foreign aid and Wars and risk YOU dying

Take a long, hard look in the mirror and ask the HARD questions, life over liberty?

Don’t make me laugh, people say “People still flock to the USA” This may be true, but why? There is nothing to gain. People flock to the UK for free homes and free healthcare and money

My love to the American people

Health for Profit

By DKIdea, published on Nov 11, 2012

I think the title of this post says it all...but for those that don’t realize and understand the standard by which we all live under...the complete “industry” health has become, you need not remain ignorant as we are about to take a trip down a particularly unpleasant rabbit hole.

I’d like to say that I remember the good old days, but they were good and gone by the time I showed up on the scene. I heard about a time when doctors cured and treated ailments because they took an oath to do so...not because it was profitable. I’m not saying doctors shouldn’t get paid...I think they should,... (more)

Congressional Reform Act: A Good Start

By DKIdea, published on Nov 11, 2012

There has been a chain letter circulating through the internet for years now. It presents itself as an idea from Warren Buffet, but the truth is the only part of it that came from him was a simple quote. Although the contents are not his, the ideas in the letter continue to raise questions, inspire discussion...and motivate people into thinking positive about where we are as a country, and where we want to be. Obviously, something this inspirationally viral and full of ideas simply must be discussed on this site, dedicated to the advent of idea.

“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes.... (more)

We will work until we die!

By Shane Joseph, published on Feb 28, 2012

...ago, I looked towards the developed West and was wrapped in envy and a sense of inadequacy. Middle class westerners had plenty of material goods, excellent physical infrastructure, plentiful jobs, rules of conduct that were respected, guaranteed incomes, predictable lifestyles, excellent healthcare and a sense of entitlement that the world and their governments owed them a good quality of life. I felt shafted. In my part of the world we had import bans, shortages of most goods, local industry not worth talking about, corrupt governments, patchy healthcare, crumbling colonial... (more)

By iDatix, published on Oct 14, 2011

Many businesses have already adopted a document management solution for their content due to the numerous advantages it offers, including increased efficiency, disaster recovery capabilities and ease of use.

International Day of Compassion - Care or Cure

By Barkha Dhar, published on May 15, 2011

...based on morality, ethicality, and virtues. His ideology seems similar to that of Dr. Patch Adams who intends to design a society based on ‘care systems’. Dr Adams philosophy of holistic care integrates cause with compassion and is a consciousness raising effort of utmost importance in healthcare system today. Historically, health has been analogous to medicine and ‘bedside manner’ has therefore been a critical part of Doctors’ diagnosis and care relationship with their patients. However, over the years this contemporary facet of medical ethics has been slowly replaced by... (more)

Obama's Healthcare Nightmare

By Christopher Wager, published on Nov 30, 2009

Recently in a speech given to the AMA (American Medical Association) President Obama announced a few of the details of his health care plan for America. Which he announced the budget being around $1 trillion over the next ten years. In order to keep this cap some sacrifices must be made and other programs cut. For instance, federal payments to hospitals by about $200 billion and cut $313 billion from Medicare and Medicaid over 10 years. (AP)This will have a profound impact on the retired and elderly who already struggle on these mismanaged and inappropriate programs.
