The problem is, the people don’t have a clue. Protesting and talk are not solutions.


U.S. Citizens Read “Common Sense 3.1” at ( http://revolution2.osixs.org )

Non U.S. Citizens Read “Common Sense 3.2” at ( http://SaveTheWorldNow.osixs.org )

Do you know what real freedom is? (http://WeAreFree.osixs.org) - Of course not, because if you did you wouldn't put up with this crap. We don’t have to live like this anymore.

B - the Brooklyn community. It is in their best interest to do it right. People over Profits. Health care over Profits.

People over profits, that's great. But, of course, what you really mean is just that everything's great as long as someone else is picking up the tab. You're just another member of the non-paying class that experiences what government does as free. "You said free, right? Sure, I'll have another!"

Really, is there anything you AREN'T in favor of when the bill goes to someone else?

People over Profits. Health care over Profits.

Follow the money.

Cut out the fat.

Board of directors pay packages and executive management pay packages.

Direct the money where it belongs = Goods and services = Health care.

Free over paying for it. I understand your perspective perfectly well.

Make donations and it can stay open. You apparently love this hospital. Volunteer or make a donation. There's an end to the state's ability to just go and take it in yet higher taxes. You need a deeper playbook than just more taxes.

We can get our money back from the banksters that crashed the economy, created massive unemployment and lost 40% of home value. Lets take that back. The banks were irresponsible. Why do you make excuses for their reckless behavior.?
