I am thrilled to be back at CHB. Put down your rocks; politics is no longer my focus for survival.
My background is simple and at an early age, walked away from the family religion and I took a long hard look at their political positions too. In those days both political parties had firm agendas and it was a simple matter of choosing the party of individuals over a party of the masses. Today the government has taken the authority to choose for us that which we find impossible to understand.
There appears to be no one position on any subject that is agreeable to Americans. This is not new but today we have the ability to state our opinions. In my opinion CHB has the ability to offer our opinions rationally and politely. It took me years to understand the value of this offer.
Is CHB apolitical or multi-political? Richard Kane asked this question and I would like to use it if I may to open discussions on how we all can help understand the mess we all see today.
Veterans Health Care is a top priority and should be discussed with suggestions on how to bring this problem to a close. Our own health care problems are too expensive and there should be two opinions on how to approach the situation. We are a partisan Government with one side taking a look at the other before we explode into wars on the streets.
We have no input on how we handle the wars in the Middle East. Our representatives are running for reelection and are all over the place on what is the right and rational thing to do. I fear we are too late to even try for a Constitutional government and it will be up to the next generations to either pull us out of the status quo or give up and allow the giant Corporations and Banks to give us what they decide.
Our work begins at home and here at CHB.
