  1. Political commentators — other than those Republican cranks who have accused Obama of having attended fundementalist Muslim Koranic schools — have overlooked the “Indonesian” facet of the Democratic presidential candidate, his formative years on the island of Java, and his being a member of a family with Indonesian connections as well as Kansan and Kenyan ones.

  2. Doug,

    Thanks for the link and the discussion. I think you’re dead wrong on this issue (and probably others), but hey … it’s your right.

    I think it is vitally important that we, as Americans, be able to discuss these matters on a substantive level.

  3. The responses have been very thought provoking.

    I’ve waited in line behind elderly having to choose which of their prescribed medicines they can afford to purchase this month. I’ve talked to people who are uninsured (and not illegal aliens) and heard their fears of getting ill and simply not being able to afford the medical bills. I have a friend who is uninsurable that knows his life will not be as long because he won’t be able to afford care when he needs it.

    In an advanced civilized society, no one should be turned away from healthcare to rot or die because they cannot pay the fee. The issue of universal health care is not about socialism, capitalism, profits or wealth sharing. The issue of universal health care is simply one of humanity.
