ask what you can do to ruin your country

Posted by on Sep 15, 2009 in healthcare, politics

I want my country back . . . Jack. I want it back because it has gotten taken to task. Now it’s no longer mine anymore. Who owns it now we must ask to be exact? We are thousands strong and we are proud to scream and yell. “I want my country back.  I want […]

Our story about employer health coverage, COBRA, and Cancer.

Posted by on Sep 11, 2009 in healthcare

Everyone should be aware that this is likely to happen to them!

Letter to the President #2

Posted by on Sep 3, 2009 in Akbar Lightning, healthcare, politics

Well, I wrote another letter to the president after receiving an email from his administration.  I just can’t take it anymore, and you know what, we ought to keep shouting, we ought to keep shutting down the town hall meetings meant to advertise the power of politicians hoping to suck up to corporate greed. Dear […]

Or anyone talking about wanting their country back. It was just some sad broken people talking about their broken healthcare issues. I was the first to speak. I was a bit nervous and […]

My cancer friend in arms

Posted by on Aug 30, 2009 in healthcare

It really affected me when I heard of the death of Ted Kennedy this week because I have related to his struggle with brain cancer.  Not only because I also have a brain tumor in a similar area, but because of his four decades of work to get universal healthcare for all.  It’s quite odd […]
