Raise your “Left” hand ………

June 21, 2009 by  

Friends and Family:
I would like to share with you a Letter to the Editor from our local newspaper.
This folks is the kind of “knowledge” that scares me silly:

Editor:

Your columnist Steve Chapman wrote (June 15): “The administration would pretend we can get generous government-sponsored coverage without higher taxes, higher insurance premiums, or rationing of health care. In short, it refuses to treat us like grown-ups. I wonder why.”

So for the last 50 years, the Canadians have had free health care financed by a seven-cent sales tax. The Germans have had free health care for the last 50 years, based on a small monthly tax. So does England, France, Italy, New Zealand. etc. The reason we don’t have it is because insurance companies want you to pay a thousand dollars a month to provide medical insurance for yourself and your family. And if you complain, they say, “Grow up! Adults know that medical care costs money.”

Well, I am an adult, 86 years old. And I know that if Canada and England and Germany have free medical care, we can have it too.

SYDNEY SPIEGEL, Casper

Talk abour blatant contradiction! “Free” to this gentleman means “tax-financed”? And thus – we are where we are.

Raise your “left” hand if don’t get it.

I feel queasey-

The Dad

    I relocated from the busy West Coast; and now live in very Rural Tennessee. The ploepe I live around in Tennessee really really hate Mormons. I do not think many LDS ploepe can comprehend, or are willing to leave their Salt Lake City bubble to see what ploepe really think of Mormons. What is interesting to me is that the LDS culture refuses to take any personal responsibility for their own part in the hatred.This might help you understand .. Put your place in their shoes..The average LDS member does not care for the way that Warren Jeffs conducts himself as a Mormon. Some of Warren Jeffs religious teachings are contrary to everything that is taught in the LDS church. Warren Jeffs and Thomas S. Monson are both Mormon prophets. Warren Jeffs is a piece of crap and Thomas S. Monson is a very kind and good man. Regardless of their behavior both men are latter day prophets, and are both considered Mormon .Southern Baptists, Baptists, Pentecostals, Church of God members.. I know many worshiping ploepe in the South, and they really hate the Mormons for what in their eyes is a horrible unforgivable sin of .. (wait for it)adding to the Bible.. Similar to how LDS disdain the FLDS philosophies, the Southern Christians despise the Mormons for tampering with stories that many of them .. grew up learning while sitting on their Papaw’s knee in church with the family bible You can’t tamper with someone’s culture like that and expect no retribution. It just takes empathy to understand.
