anti-American socialist health care system covers everybody, and it has for forty years and it works and Hawaiians love it, oh my.

“Great physicians and nurses, skilled, caring and unparalleled in their training, intervened in my life and probably saved it. I was lucky but other Americans are not. It is time to speak again and stand again for the ideal that in the richest nation ever on this planet, it is wrong for 41 million Americans, most of them in working families, to worry at night and wake up in the morning without the basic protection of health insurance.
~Senator John Kerry, United States Senator


Health Care and dialogue but the Republicans smell a trap. The Gay Old Party, GOP, holds it's national convention in Hawaii with it's SOCIALIST HEALTH CARE system. Seems the Republicans didn't know that. Hawaii's awful anti-American socialist health care system covers everybody, and it has for forty years and it works and Hawaiians love it, oh my. Obviously they are misguided. They go to a hospital get treated and then go home. What are they missing, being asked what insurance they have, being sent to another hospital 50 miles away if they don't have coverage, high individual premiums. How can they love a system that that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Gelnn Beck John Boehner (R-OH) labels as socialist? Are they mad. Somethings wrong here. I think Hawaii deserves further investigation.
It seems that states that have gone socialistic score better in all areas of care. States that don't score the lowest. As reported in abc.go.news.com, "Vermont, Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Maine and New Hampshire ranked 1 to 5 in 38 indicators of health care. At the bottom were Mississippi, along with Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Nevada and Texas. The Commonwealth Fund Commission's"Scorecard on Health System Performance," which was released today, rated the states on access, quality, costs and health outcomes in a follow up to their 2007 report. Overall, the states which did best on theCommonwealth scorecard were in New England and the upper Midwest, and the worst states were in the South". It has to be a socialist plot, some sneaky trick to undermine the Right who are always right, or maybe just a little bit stupid.

"Stop Monsanto's GMO Contamination

Keep organics safe from GMOs.



Tell the USDA to rejectno-monsanto-gmos_hp.gif Monsanto's application to market its genetically modified alfalfa — a threat to organic crops.

Dear Friends,

During the Bush administration, Monsanto illegally won USDA approval for its genetically engineered (GE) alfalfa by convincing regulators to bypass a mandatory environmental review. In response to a lawsuit by consumer groups, the courts then stepped in and banned GE alfalfa until the USDA followed the law.

In December, the USDA released its belated review of Monsanto's GE alfalfa seed and determined that Monsanto's alfalfa met the Obama Administration's standards, despite the risk of organic contamination.

This conclusion came despite the acknowledgment by USDA researchers that GE alfalfa is virtually certain to "contaminate" normal seeds. Cross-contamination is the number one concern with genetically engineered crops.

The USDA is accepting public comments on Monsanto's application through February 16. Tell the USDA that Monsanto's alfalfa cannot be approved — the future of organics depends on it.

Organic contamination is devastating for organic farmers, especially organic dairy farmers, most of whom use organic alfalfa for feed. The presence of even the smallest amount of GE material can cause a farm to lose its organic certification. And court documents indicate that early plantings of GE alfalfa did contaminate conventional alfalfa. Yet the USDA maintains that Monsanto's existing safety protocols are good enough. This is ridiculous!

Even worse, the USDA concluded that the possibility of contamination of organic fields is of no concern, since consumers won't care if their organic food or milk contains genetically engineered components. Yet central to the definition of the USDA Organic label is the total absence of genetically modified ingredients. An overwhelming majority of consumers buy organic to avoid GE products and would be shocked to learn the USDA is so cavalier about the risks of transgenic contamination.

Tell the USDA you care about GE contamination. Keep Monsanto's genes out of our food!

Thank you for working to build a better world."
