(John Kinkaid) says…
Has the Craig Daily Press come forward yet with the rest of the highway 40 crash story?
How can we be informed citizens who make informed decisions with the pathetic paper that we have to rely on?
One of our former Supreme Court justices said that “sunshine is the best disinfectant”. Where is our “sunshine”? The Daily Press isn't providing any. All it provides is fluff. Fluffy clouds.
And two pages a week of fluffy Spanish.
Here's an idea…..get a court reporter.Get an investigative reporter.Ask the hard questions.Be thorough.Spread some sunshine on the dark places that need it.
The Daily Press IS part of the problem.

First, let me offer condolences to the Simon family. I can't imagine losing a loved one in an auto accident. I'm so sorry for your loss and your deep grief.
Once again, the Craig Daily Press continues its tradition of printing fluff and never asking the hard questions or printing the whole truth.We are hearing that Ms. Diaz-Simon had no auto insurance, was in the country illegally and hence also had no driving privileges. Are we hearing false rumors? Or is the paper just useless?

Medical Savings Accounts combined with a high deductable insurance policy sound like a good way to go for now. What say you Ohio?

Here's another angle.
If there was a doctor on the forum, he or she could tell us the figures for malpractice insurance premiums.
One more thing. Take a very close look at health care in other countries. Socialism is really expensive and really sucks.

What if we tie funding increases to increased academic achievement at the high school? Set measurable academic improvement goals; and if achieved, then we talk about increases in school funding and taxes?

Try this link. I've not tried to cut and paste links on the forum.
Dr. Tom Coburn agrees with your 40 million uninsured figure. He actually cites 45 million people without insurance or preventative care.
It's an extensive paper. He agrees with you, Altitude, that there is a crisis.
He prescribes a free market approach as a cure. I agree. We should make our own health care decisions, not the government. Power to the people! Freedom and liberty!
He also mentions cancer patients in England not getting chemo-therapy in a timely manner. I wouldn't be too surprised if people in Japan did have longer life spans. They probably have healthier diets do to their reliance on fish.
12 million illegal aliens with no health insurance? Secure the borders and slow down the bleeding.
Anyway, read Coburn's recommendations. If the link doesn't work, you can find the piece at the Heritage Foundation's website.

From Saturday's editorial: “The American health care system is a joke. It is an expansive, expensive, bureaucratic and ineffective mongrel that tramples, or avoids, as many people as it helps.”
Wow! That's some serious venom. Usually you have to read Diane Carmen in the Denver Post or a Hugo Chavez press release to get rhetoric like that.
The U.S. has the best health care system in the entire world. Period.
Ask real people who are under socialized medicine systems about the level of care that they get for “free”. Ask them how long they have to wait for treatment. Ask them if they think that their medical care is world class. The U.S. sets the highest standard for health care in the world.
Is it perfect? No.
Patients should be able to see which doctors charge the least before they go in for a patient visit. Use free market principles. Let patients be informed consumers. Let patients be empowered consumers. Let patients get on the internet and find out which doctors and hospitals get the best outcomes.
You do not want socialized medicine no matter how it is packaged or labeled!!!
Can we enforce our borders so that we don't have to carry and pay for the extra burden? That would be a positive change. Don't you that that would save billions?

Increased spending has very little actual correlation to increases in academic achievement. Ineffective teaching methods are still utilized. More money doesn't offset that. Any ineffective teachers and administrators with tenure are not let go. More money doesn't offset that. The majority of kids coming out of the high school are under-educated. Most kids are not prepared for college level math as just one example.The schools will get newer computers with the tax increase. Big whoop.The community asks for an elective Bible class and gets stonewalled.Not much give and take there or meaningful accountability.Oh wait… the taxpayers do give money and System does take it.

I have been following the articles concerning the the beetle infestation of our forests in Colorado. This appears to me to be gross mismanagement of our forests.What a pathetic response to the problem from The National Forest Service and state officials!!!Our forests are not being protected, because human intervention is inherently bad and Nature will take care of itself.They have ruined Yellowstone National Park for generations to come due to this bogus philosophy and now the forests in Colorado are next.I say we turn up the heat on these officials.
