News of the Day

I’m bombarded daily by news. It starts in the morning with husband’s look at the weather, today’s and the week. Then world/national news and local shootings and traffic accidents with a house fire or two through the night.

There isn’t any good economic news. The nation is set to collapse. The world is set to collapse too. Governments seek to ‘fix’ everything. Though, it’s the people who can make a difference, not rulers, presidents, representatives.

But we’re drowning in laws, regulations. We’re working hard to keep our heads above water and care for our families. But prices on everything are going up and our retirement savings have been taken away by stock market drops. There’s no place to put anything saved. We lose our principle in every place we used to sock a little money.

I’m looking for a person to run for president who will tell me there is hope. Real hope. Hope for my country. Hope for my family. Hope for the world. After Mr. Cain suspended his campaign, I see no one that fits that bill.

So I’ll just lean on Jesus. And do what I can to take his Gospel to those in need. I don’t know what others do without Him. He’s the only sanity in my world. He’s the only one with Good News. ♡♡♡

Is. 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain; you who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, don’t be afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!

A Europe without borders needs barricades everywhere

 

Europe without borders.

They really need to put up more barricades.

Perhaps they should have put them up on the borders several years ago…

Think the Southwestern US has been hot this July?

 

You will NEVER hear this from the media:

July 14th used to be a very hot day in the US, but July 14th temperatures have plummeted over the past century.

Notice the trend in US temperatures for July 14 from the early 1900’s through today? (% US stations with temps over 100 degrees).

Bet you’d never have guessed! 

Climate change, indeed! Looks like it’s going down, not up.

My Awesome and Cheap Medical Experience…in Lebanon or Why We Can Do Without Government Funding of Health Care

My Awesome and Cheap Medical Experience…in Lebanon

 

Please read this entire article at the above link. It was written by Bill Frezza who is a fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

This man shows that health care can be provided at decent prices IF government isn’t tasked with providing (paying for) health care for those who are unable to pay.

Paying cash without insurance is what we used to do in the 1940’s and 1950’s.

Then union contracts began to demand health insurance that over time demanded more and more paid health services. In addition states began to require health insurers to cover A through Z of every health condition. Medicare and Medicaid was devised for government to pay for the health care of the elderly and the poor. Do you think the health care of the poor and elderly was not paid for before this? If you said no, you would be wrong.

When I was a young student nurse we had clinics in our hospital. The clinics were where people who couldn’t afford to pay for care came for their health care and they were provided all health care services pro bono. These people were treated just as well as insured patients. Every doctor in our hospital took his turn spending a month seeing indigent patients as well as his own private patients. From what I saw, these patients were treated with utmost respect and with the same care as anyone else. We students also were assigned to the clinics as part of our learning/practicum.

Almost all hospitals were started by Christian churches. Yes! Almost all! And charity comes from the Greek word, agape which means Christian love. Charity really means love! In the KJV of the Bible:   And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-4, 8, 13)) The word here in the Greek is agape. Love. And love is an action word. We don’t ‘feel’ love. We DO love!

That system of charity provided dignity and love to people. Today people on medical assistance have a lessor quality of care. It’s been proven in studies for the past 20 years. Why is that? I think it’s because government provision of anything doesn’t serve humanity. It’s a political act to benefit politicians.

We have walked down this road for so long that we don’t think we can do without private insurance or government funding of health care. Well we can do without it. But it would take a lot of turning back the clock. Religious institutions would need to be allowed all the financial benefits that other non-profits are allowed. Come to think of it ‘non-profits’ should be obliterated. We don’t need non-profits. Those tax rules were designed by President Johnson and he wasn’t a conservative that loved people.

OK. Read the article. Lebanon has a very good health care system. It cured this man’s wife of a life and death problem pretty quickly and it didn’t cost him an arm and a leg. We could do this.

Charlie Gard and the age of medicine: “Do Harm”

Charlie Gard and the Age of “Do Harm” Medicine
An interview with Wesley J. Smith of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism.

I call [what happened to Charlie] a “bioethical aggression,” By which I mean that the value beliefs of mainstream Bioethics and the medical intelligentsia are being imposed on people who have a more traditional sanctity of life value system. The “quality of life ethic” is now aggressive.  It’s not just these doctors saying, “This is against my ethics to keep this baby alive because I don’t think this is right for the baby.” They’re saying that the parents don’t have a right to make a different choice, and that’s an aggressive act. It is expanding the power of Bioethics, doctors, and courts, into areas of intimate decision making and family life where they do not belong.

This article is a great analysis of what’s happening in the UK with this court decision to allow Charlie Gard to die against the baby’s parent’s wishes. 

It’s a lesson for us in the U.S.
