I deeply mistrust centralization in general, believing that local suppliers of goods, like produce, education, and machinery keeps a community healthy with people who know how to do things.


Well said. Well considered. Bravo.

That which we can do ourselves, we do for ourselves and for that which we cannot we share our incompetence.

Like loving God, the transformative power is that we are willing.

Cheryl, I don't think you want to wish a horrible job like "president" on someone we really like..! We need him for the music and stories!!

So much for having a great president in the white house. We do need his stories tho. I could see Arlo writing and doing a song called Talking Presidential Rag. :)

If any of y'all do your own gardening and grow corn. Let me give you an idea to try next year. This fall buy the multicolored "Indian Corn" or buy from the local Co-Op next spring. Plant it in your garden and when it "comes in" try it instead of the hybrid. It does taste good. and after it gets too hard to eat let it ripen and you have your fall colored corn and seed for next year. I have used the same seed for a few years and between me and the raccoons we do alright.

I'm sorry Eileen... I hope I wasn't being too critical... I just happen to work in an invironment that demands progress before all details have been ironed out.


it is good to read the whole of the bits posted too (to get the whole picture), but i just zeroed in on those two spots. (in my head it makes sense)

Huh I haven't posted on ArloNet for some time now but I couldn't resist this time. Arlo I like what you had to say and support it. All I know is this. What it feels like to me is that that healthcare system is over inflated and in desperate need of reform. I don't think we need a public system we just need to fix what we have and make it actually affordable for workers and businesses alike. Buying local is also a great idea. After all ther's nothing like fresh veggies! :)

When most people talk about health care, they're actually talking about access to health care - not the actual care itself. If the care you get is crap, fighting over access to it seems rather crazy. Access to the treatment you want, is different than access to the treatments available. When a for-profit corporation provides access only to the treatment they decide is good for their shareholders, and refuses to provide access to the kind of treatment you and your doctor decide is beneficial to you, it makes you wonder if you're actually getting health care at all. Life and death health decisions are now in the hands of government bureaucrats and corporate bean counters instead of doctors and patients. Financial rewards for doctors and health care professionals who go along with this are well documented while real doctors who provide real health care are discredited and ridiculed on supposedly informed websites like 'quack watch' funded and supported by corporate interests. You will not hear any serious discussion on this subject on any major media outlet, because even NPR and other supposedly 'good' reliable sources of information are afraid they will lose fortunes and therefore their ability to do the good work they do. No wonder Americans are angered. I know I am.
