Free Market Approach to Health Care?

With John's last video promoting a "Free Market" approach to health care, I thought I would present my alternative Free Market approach. This is a presentation from Clayton Christensen to college students at MIT, but it shouldn't be too hard to follow. That said, it is a lot denser and longer than John's video.

Guns at Protests

This has me just so outraged. I posted this on the Health Care forum because it did relate to what was going on:



The shouting, violence, and guns have been driving me nuts. I actually came this close to writing a blog about the guy with the sign about watering the tree of liberty at Obama's town hall and in relation to the First… Continue

Kate's Cooking Challenge

For a long time, I've needed to learn to cook, and I need an interesting way of doing that cuz otherwise I just stick to things like bagels and oatmeal.



I am hear to tell you that is not a healthy way to live. So for the sake of my own health and decreasing world suck by decreasing my own suck, I am going to attempt cooking. Once a week, I will be attempting a new recipe and video the process and post it for passerbys to criticize (which I'm sure will be happening a lot since I can't… Continue

Palin is "outlandish" (yes, yes she is!)

On Friday, Sarah Palin posted the following "note" about the health care bill on Facebook:



As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!



The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the…

That's Deadly: A Suicide Public Service Announcement from GECS



I made this video for a school health project. All of the actors are friends/classmates of mine at Golden Eagle Charter School. All of them are EXTREMELY awesome people. Thanks guys.



In order of appearance: Alex, Lanee, Kassie, Amanda, and Micah. The person who "dies" from sticking two butter knives in an electrical socket is David. DON'T EVERY STICK BUTTER KNIVES IN ELECTRICAL SOCKETS! David didn't actually, and neither should you!



Remember, if… Continue

Re: A labyrinth of suffering

Lulipop tagged me to respond to her blong entry here. I'm going to do my best but I should warn my perspectives are a bit contridictory at times coming at things from both a mental health (since that's what I do for a living), moderately religious and older sister points of view. So take from this what you will. * I'll be using 'you' as a collective term for anyone reading this.



Life is hard. If it… Continue

My 14 month plan

Starting Feb 9, 2009 I will be beginning a 14 month trek to revitalize myself, through gaining employment, enriching my knowledge, upgrading my skills, and improving my health. I will be chronicling this trek through here and will keep everyone updated on my status. I am ecstatic about this, my very last trek before I hit the big 3 0 on April 9, 2010. Hopefully this experience will gain loads of wealthy knowledge and gives me a grip on the correct path to a healthy living style. All I have to… Continue

my thoughts

Some thoughts of mine. Please bear with me I tend to ramble with out a point or ending. Some of my thoughts also may offend you, please note I do not wish to impose any views of mine on others or actually do any of this, they are merely thoughts.



1. There was a good reason for marrying girls off as soon as they got their period. That basically signals

a). they can have kids,

b). they are about to go through some crazy mood swings and hormone changes.

As I never plan to… Continue

Health Insurance Companies (in the U.S., at Least...) are Greedy and Sexist

Another Disclaimer: I have yet to see Sicko by Michael Moore-- this is purely my own observations and opinions derived from my personal experiences and those of my family. Get it? Got it? Good.



Paperwork. Red tape. Insurance companies use them, as well as exceedingly tedious and confusing phone menus, to tire out their clients all the time. The goal is to get the little guy/girl so frustrated and sick of dealing with it (whatever the "it" may be at the time) that the person… Continue

Less than enthused about health insurance (plus, an Arthur Miller reference)

So I finally applied for health insurance today, and hopefully am no longer among the millions of uninsured in America. Yet I'm less than ecstatic, mostly because the application process itself is so depressing. Are you male or female? How old are you? How tall are you and how much to you weigh? Seemingly innocent questions made cynical yardsticks of your insurability, and that's before you get to all the specific questions about your health. Behind it all you can hear the insurance company… Continue

Nerdfighter Fitness Challenge



Hey, Nerdfighters. One of my New Year's Resolutions for 2008 was to lose 50 lbs. by the end of the year. I haven't done much to make it happen yet, but earlier this week, that changed.



I decided I'll make a YouTube channel to chronicle my weight loss. My reasoning is for people to help keep me on task, to ask for/offer advice, give suggestions, and maybe even inspire a few people.
