Still health care, still and always

Iraq and Afghanistan are two of the countries with universal health care, payed by us, the American tax payer. There has to be some kind of irony least that.
One more thought or two on health care:
The World Health Organization (WHO) definition of Health:
The state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. (WHO, 1947)
Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Hilary Clinton all tried and all failed. The same tactics are being used to argue against it.The universal health care plan adversaries must figure that this one is a keeper. The suckers ate the same (so much for wide spread college education), the winners are the same, and the government is the same. And as Mr. Einstein said, "insanity is attempting to do the same thing over and over and expecting different results". The adversaries are doing the same thing and getting the same results, so in all logic the people attempting to implement some kind of sane health reform should have gone about it in a different way... Not sure how but they're the ones getting the bucks and sleeping with the enemy...
Truth Out has some good suggestions...
And this article in the New Yorker authored by Atul Gawande,clearly elucidates us on the state of health in this country.His web site is a marvelously eclectic domain reflecting the Renaissance man that he embodies.
How is it that one can invariably link the world's great family fortunes to either booze, drugs or war? Kennedy's being just such an example as Joe the elder statesman made some of his early fortune running illegal booze during the Prohibition...

Preparing for the beginning of Fall semester at Touro College
The upcoming Career Fair might actually be a good place for me to find much needed advice on work and future internships.
