HEALTH CARE debate digested

I just read the Community Free Press article on the Health Care Reform Debate... The following is what I gathered on the subject.

1. According to a Gallup poll: 35% favor reform, 36% are against, and a whopping 29% have no opinion.

2. The House of Reps has moved its reform through, HR 3200. The 1,000 page bill, has passed 3 committees.

3. THe Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee has proposed the Affordable Health Choices Act.

4. Senate is moving slower than the House. House has said "something is going to pass."

5. If an when both the House and Senate pass their own measures- the bills will go into a conference Bi-Partisan committee to hammer out differences.

6. Need for Reform: In 1960, health care accounted for 5.2% of costs. Today it accounts for 16.2%+...

If theres ever an answer Its more love

Dixie Chicks- "More Love"
This is how I'm feeling :)

Just look out around us
People fightin their wars
They think theyll be happy
When theyve settled their scores
Lets lay down our weapons
That hold us apart
Be still for just a minute
Try to open our hearts

More love, I can hear our hearts cryin
More love, I know thats all we need
More love, to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If theres ever an answer
Its more love

I can hear our hearts cryin
More love, I know thats all we need
More love, to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If theres ever an answer
Its more love

Describe God.

20 Questions For Every Spiritual Seeker

1. Why is there poverty and suffering in the world?
Greed and Intolerance.

2. What is the relationship between science and religion?
Same thing.

3. Why are so many people depressed?
Detachment from primal selves and their souls as well as detachment and estrangement from Mother Nature and her gifts.

4. What are we all so afraid of?

5. When is war justifiable?
"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, scince for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despiceable an ignoreable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder." -- Albert Einstein

11. What happens to you after you die?
Soul reincarnates and evolves.

12. Describe heaven and how to get there.
I believe every day you can get to Heaven. Heaven is probably a place on Earth most definitely.

13. What is the meaning of life?
There are no great acts- only small acts of great love. _Mother Tereasa

14. Describe God.
You, Me, Everyone I know. God is a self-organizing cosmos.

15. What is the greatest quality humans possess?

16. What is it that prevents people from living to their full potential?
